I have to agree with the calls for makeup. A little bit of "lipstick" would go a long way to aid with the feminine appearance.
Did you see the new pic they posted? It looks like they did give her dark lips.
I agree with what many others have said here. A woman (robot or not) does NOT require breasts (in fact, what the hell would a ROBOT do with breasts anyway?), does NOT require an hourglass figure (a shape seldom seen in nature, even among human females) and doesn't have to have 'wide childbearing hips' (Cybertronians don't give birth, right? Aren't they all produced by Vector Sigma/Primus?).
All the feminine ques in the Starscream mold are plenty for me, and actually more than necessary, so much so that many complained about just how feminine he looked in Prime.
Wait... what? Nature is suddenly being used as the basis of realism for Transformers? Non-humans in nature as well?
They're aliens. Alien fembots (who according to the lore were experimented with by Jhiaxus as he saw females from other alien species). If we're not going with this, or any theory of what makes a fembot a fembot, what does make it a fembot? Just the title "fem"? Its a ridiculous debate since we all know what sexy is, so why not have sexy fembots. You really want a rosie'o donnel looking fembot?
You even just said that the Starscream mould has female characteristics, so then why is it such a bad thing to want more of the female characteristics for a fembot?
This isn't about realism in robots, because, for starters, its a fantasy from the get go. Second, even if you did go with the lore, and the cartoons, the characters who were fembots often did have female porpotions in some way or form, whether their voice, lips, eyes, or body. Coming back to the figure itself, it has no voice, so it depends on looks to make it a fembot. If the Starscream mould is good enough for you, great. I'm here to ensure a message goes through to the few people who make Transformers that we need a better, more feminine Slipstream. I don't want a fat, or manly Slipstream, JUST coz it isn't necessary for the pseudo rules of Transforming robots.
- An Hourglass figure doesn't mean she has to have "perfect" porpotions, but generally female porpotions. Just wanted to clear that up so people didn't think I was being super critical.
