    Really? I thought the face was fine, not too feminine yet not too weird like ROTF which had a light influence on the design, it's probably the Nizzi elements that makes her look kinda funky, yet not enough to get people nightmares, but I get your point man :)

    It’s very eye catching. I feel though if we see her express her face more it’ll look nicer.

    Body shapes can be a good way to indicate gender, as long as it's done subtly. This also goes for males. You kind of want Optimus to be strong and masculine-looking. They can take it too far though.

    I find things like colored lips and heels very dated. Maybe done sparingly, but I find it really tacky that almost all female Transformers have to have colored lipstick (especially when we're talking about designs like 'not-Lugnut', who's face isn't even that humanoid). It would be like giving all male Transformers beards and mustaches. Even Bay understood to vary it up, and only give it to characters who it fits.

    Oh nobody did, I just... actually I dunno.
    I think the lipstick thing is pretty much gone now. Apart from female Lugnut. I dunno. I don’t find it as big a problem. And even to the day it isn’t as bad. And much like this arcee we can see there is still a push to identify the characters with more subtle design in the body and face.

    Arcee's little pinprick irises look hella creepy against her all dark eye sockets.

    She really should've had full blue eyes like OP and BB.

    I find it strange how Optimus and Bumblebee have big blue expressive eyes yet all the other Autobots have tiny eyes like the Bayformers

    Mind you Optimus and Bee are the two characters that were designed before the rush to do that fanwank Cybertron scene. It's likely the other Autobots had to have those nondescript floating pupils inside of their skulls simply because it was faster to model their faces around those copy-pasted skulls than fully incorporated eyes like Bee and OP had.

    I don't mind it in the actual film, but the concept art gives me the creeps.
