I see what they're trying to do, but this mold just strikes me as still being too masculine for a Slipstream.

They had the perfect mold.
They had the perfect deco.

And then someone passed that head sculpt. WHO thought that was a good idea!

Also, it just occured to me that Slipstream has DUCK LIPS. WHY? :BANG_HEAD:

You ever see the Dolan meme? That's what her her head sculpt looks like to me.

That would be silly, [Prime] Starscreams don't have noses.

IMHO I don't think this head sculpt is all that bad really but to each their own. If the people at Dr.Wu are seeing all this maybe they'll deliver us a more accurate Slipstream head sculpt. After all they did one for Optimus. :VEHI:

Urrmm yeah they do. The noise is the bump-thing in the middle of their face coming out of their helmets, so this thing.

here let me lay down this beat, see if you pick it up. While it's debatable as to whether or not TFP character models have noses, a majority of them don't. (the majority of autobots come to mind). Those that have "noses" are dubious at best because they can look like part of the brow, or are barely noticeable. Slipstream is one of the latter, her "nose" look more like it's part of the bridge and mostly her brow.

These pics are better than the ones from the other day. Her face actually looks quite a bit like Arcee's I think. And I believe Arcee has even made that duck lip expression from time to time. Definitely fits in with the Prime line very well.

Best figure for this mold. EVER! This mold(and it's voyager counterpart) has always been fembot material, so Slipstream is the perfect character for it.

Nothing wrong w/ her face as far as I can tell.

BTW, no, she has no nose and she does NOT have duck lips, RAcast.

It's deceptively less bad from angled shots (which most of these are), but find a shot of the face straight-on. It's horrifyingly bad with her mouth-half-open-duck-lips. I honestly don't know why they didn't just go with a regular smirk, as it would have look so much better.

[Third picture on the first page is a straight-on picture]

I like her, but I wish they had used the Voyager mold. With the exception of Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia (and the repaint into Arcee) I can't think of a single female Transformer bigger than a Deluxe.

Ah well, kitbash time I supposed!
