I think what's missing for all these is an angry or battle rage expression. :VEHI:

I don't know about that, only Hi-Q can pull off those glasses.

It looks that i`m just remember him for his "Last Autobot" appearance.

But then, you cant disagree, that this one Hi-Q is obviously kinda "Black Person".

Good to know especially for those way too happy-go-lucky expressions for Minerva. Yeah I get the anime style, I have my share of interest of anime but looking at these latest pics I can't stop thinking of Kirby with that helmet on and that same face.... :P :VEHI:

No, it just that, without any paint apps, Hi-Q's figure here *looks* Black. But, no, he's White (as most Nebulons were in Marvel).

He was bald originally, only growing some hair much later in the comic's run.

You're forgetting Brisko:

Not that one token character makes up for Nebulos being yet another alien comic book world to fall victim to what I call the Kurse of Krypton. Is there a more widely used term in comic circles?

Nonetheless, Marvel Nebulos still outperforms Rebirth Nebulos/Nebulon on most levels, IMHO.

Yes I am, thanks. Edited me previous post to change "all" to "most".

Agreed.

Marvel Nebulos = sophisticated society with realistic political corruption and interesting culture.

Sunbow Nebulos = Saturday morning cartoon-styled alien world with green men, cliche villains, and no unique history.

Any comparison shots on how big the dolls are compared to deluxe figures ??? They might be cool if they are scout size or smaller. But if they are barbie doll sized, then they just dont go with a classics collection. Plus the girl dolls also suggest other things that I have mentioned before that other posters disagree with me on...

Why do keep calling them dolls when they're even more robotic than G.I. Joe figures?

They don't even have any organic body parts (aside from their heads) when in these forms on the show. the only "armor" than they "wear" in these forms are their helmets.

It's all in the eye of the beholder, and he is usually the pervert :P Besides, ever seen female G.I. Joe figures, like Baroness (Ok, maybe a bad example)

No, it`s not about his plastic color on actual photos. It`s face itself: that flat nose and big lips. He looks like young Mike Tyson.

It's being on display that worries me. Hispanics in Miami are very family oriented. They place being a perv in the same catagory as being a rapist. I know certain places in middle america anything goes (as Eminem suggests in his lyrics) But here in Miami, displaying one of those dolls just gives some people the wrong idea. It would give women the creeps since most of them have teenage daughters or sisters. I might want the Minerva one, but not sure if it would be displayed in my main room. :lol:

Well, what if they're displayed in a non-perverted, generic pose, like just standing straight or just sitting down, with nothing sexual implied?

Plus, like I said, they aren't even humans in this form.

Then I have a good story for you. The police were visiting some guy's house, when they noticed he had a collection of Transformer toys. They then asked if he was a child predator. No joke!

Let's talk about toys please, not social stereotypes.

I know this site allows for the free exchange of ideas but.............QUIT IT RATED X!

ENOUGH with the obsession with this Nonsensical, Out of Place and Trolling! Dolls, underage features, curvaceous design..... :BANG_HEAD:

If you don't like to buy Minerva, don't!And get out of the thread!

With apologies to other Floridians out here, would you allow such stereotyping? For those with such a mind set against those collecting figs, they can just KISS MY B*TT!

It's bad enough that prior to the anime explosion and the Bayformers movie, admit it, a lot of our "mainstream" peers looked down on us.....at least until popular culture accepted some of this in the mainstream.

I have a 15 year old nephew who knows and is aware of my main G1 TF collection and sub collection of various anime figs. He knows the difference between an ero fig and a main line General Patronage fig. I own both lines (ero and mainstream figs).

He (the 15 year old) knows the difference between an icky, yucky naked girl and a wowza high tech most excellent action figure along the lines of figma(Maxfactory), ALmecha (Alter), vmf(Yamato)and Gutto Kuro(CMs) line. He knows when to get the rise out of one and when to just enjoy the complexity of a fig. Showing the 15 year olda pic of Minerva, well he doesn't find her anywhere near erotic at all.......in fact she's kinda skinny according to him.

So If a 15 year old can tell the difference while supposed Floridian adults can't..........then I fear for your future (get your priorities straight for heavens sake!)

I second Blurrz x infinity........let's talk about the merit of the toys and not the distractions!

1.When will she be available?

2.How much?

3.Quality?

4.Wished they'd make a scaled transtector body for her :lol: (Ok, I just slipped that in......couldn't resist)

5.Is her armor cast off 8-} (if you are so obsessed with such a feature.)

:HEADHURTS:

Addendum:
Btw, she's a bit taller than a Voyager fig. That's their usual size range.

Though, there is one Rated X asked that I myself would like to know.

How tall are these Suit Mode Autobots?
