Flame Toys Figures and Model Kits Thread

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff?

Speaking personally, I very much want a Furai Windblade to go with the rest of my collection of IDW designs. But I hated this design, and I think it does a disservice to the character and the brand. Honestly, though, who cares what I think? I'm just a fan; yes, I have an emotional investment in Windblade, but she's just a fiction.

She is much more important to others, and I can't think of any authority greater than Mairghread Scott, who wrote the IDE miniseries and Til All Are One. Linking to the Flame Toys tweet, she said this on Twitter:
"When you spend years trying to build a positive, complex role model of a character trying to find peace in a world of endless war... and this happens..." and appended a sad Ben Affleck gif.

Ok, that's probably why Flame Toys took down the tweet, more than any general dissatisfaction.

I mean, it's not like we're exactly short of Windblade toys at the moment, I'm sure this one non-transforming model kit's existence isn't dangerous to Windblade fans' abilities to get a plastic representation of their favourite character.

I'm also very disappointed in the reactions of some people to this kit, including Scott. Lots of "Cater to me even though I don't buy your product" and double standards, not to mention getting pointlessly mad over a plastic robot. If you don't like it then don't buy it. Simple as. Don't demand that the design be changed or the kit be cancelled because the sight of an attractive female somehow offends your delicate sensibilities; you probably weren't buying the kit anyway so your opinion on the matter is literally worth nothing. Let people who want her have her.

On a more positive note, my sole gripe with her is a lack of jet detail on her, so if I can nab her (and I really, really want to) I'm tempted to graft some removable 1/72 jet parts onto her. I'm thinking a Sea Vixen, as the twin-boom design would allow for her rather tiny fan-turbine wings to be augmented with some beautiful, long-tailed wings not dissimilar to a Luna Moth. I also kinda wanna have a go at painting on some Japanese-style tattoos onto her bodywork.

My only complain with her is that they basically removed all the kibbles that make her a Transformers. They should have followed the manga above a bit more closely.


In no way is this a matter of “letting women feel sexy.” That’s a REAL world issue, this is a fictional character clearly designed by horny men. Windblade isn’t real and making some liberating choice to look like that. I don’t think it’s Puritan to want designs of characters that you can own without feeling like some weirdo who gets off to robot girls.

Everyone is saying “oh but the guys are buff too!” And yeah sure, but there’s nothing specifically human proportioned on them. Windblade looks like she’s wearing a tight skin suit, I mean for ducks sake you can see her nipples! You can’t say that the human-like features are equitable between the guys and her.

Hasbro has been pushing for Windblade to be one of the most prominent female characters in the new continuities, which is fantastic, but is this how she should be represented?

Charming. Real charming.

So the female form is "garbage"? Sounds rather misogynistic to me.

As far as things being insulting, how about someone's hard work designing, sculpting and engineering a model kit such as this (no easy task) being denounced and decried as "offensive" because some people find attractive female body shapes to be upsetting somehow? Because if I were the designer I'd be pretty insulted.

I'd also like to remind everyone that Windblade was not Scott's sole creation. She merely wrote one depiction of her. As a concept, she was a fan-created character that was given form by a suite of artists and featured in multiple continuities by multiple creators. Scott has no exclusive claim to how Windblade should be depicted, and the fact she personally doesn't like this model kit is no reason it shouldn't exist.

That is correct, she isn't real, ergo it does not matter in the slightest. Can't cry about "objectifying" a literal object.
I don’t think it’s Puritan to want designs of characters that you can own without feeling like some weirdo who gets off to robot girls.

So finding women attractive and liking depictions of beautiful women makes you a weirdo now. OK then...?

Everyone is saying “oh but the guys are buff too!” And yeah sure, but there’s nothing specifically human proportioned on them. Windblade looks like she’s wearing a tight skin suit, I mean for ducks sake you can see her nipples! You can’t say that the human-like features are equitable between the guys and her.

I would have liked more aircraft bits on her but overall they're pretty equitable, yes. Both are exaggerated, idealized humanoid figures with robot details. Heck, Windblade is actually far more realistically proportioned than say Prime or Starscream, so in that regard she's ahead of the game.

Hasbro has been pushing for Windblade to be one of the most prominent female characters in the new continuities, which is fantastic,

It's fantastic in as much as there is a mainstay female character, but considering she's basically insured no other female Autobot can reach the same level of mainstream success (even Arcee), I'm not sure her prominence is such a good thing.
but is this how she should be represented?

Sure beats how Nautica and Arcee were represented in TR, being reduced to minimal-effort retools of male characters rather than even getting their own molds.

I'm reminded of that time where a pizza place near my old college had its publicity ranksacked and destroyed as 'dirty sexist pubs'. Said publicity simply showed a decently attractive, happy young woman holding a pizza. It wasn't even sexual and there were actually a diverse set of people. There was a black woman, an old guy and so on. The simple pub was them smiling and holding a pizza forward.

They burned and desecrated all those showing the smiling woman, writing **** like 'dirty sexist publicity begone'. So somehow showing a woman smiling was seen as a horrific affront to them and, again, this wasn't even a publicity that ran on sex appeal. Just happy people holding a pizza, but showing a happy, decently attractive woman smiling was deem horrible, offensive and taboo.

So yeah, the female form IS offensive in 2020 when it isn't butt ugly.

Yes Hat, I am dismissive of people like you.

Seriously though, this figure is an embarrassment. That's the worst thing. All it shows anyone from the outside looking in is that Transformers is full of horny man children who want to jerk off to sexy robots.

Ah yes, the shaming of male sexuality. In a day and age where every possible permutation of sexual orientation is to be celebrated, a guy wanking to robot in his bedroom is somehow the worst offender and a threat to society. :lol:

First off, nice implication that non straight sexualities are a threat to society, very classy.

Second off, I don't give a damn what you want to do. I take issue with a previously well written and interesting female main character, who is a flagship character in the new TV series for kids, being reduced to nothing but T n A and furthering the idea that, if you are a woman, Transformers doesn't give a **** about you.

I don’t think sexuality should be a major factor in a brand primarily targeted toward younger children (unlike all of us here). No ones celebrating guys getting off to robot girls who’s designs were bastardized to be a porn star.

I mean what’s next, justifying Kiss Players?

Right, good to know that you have no interest in actually addressing what I'm saying and instead are just arguing in- get ready for it- bad faith. Really making yourself look good there.

Are you joking? You think this model kit is single handedly going to make people think worse of the franchise and fanbase, and not, for example:
>The countless hours of dreadful media (even IDW cranked out some stinkers),
>The religious following the original cartoon has as if it were the height of culture in spite of being most definitely not,
>The people that will buy anything and everything that Hasbro cranks out regardless of how bad just to fill a "hole" in their collection,
>The "high end" line that has descended into QC nightmares of awkward transformations and chipped paint to sate cartoon cultist's obsession,
>The high-profile wiki and associated websites run by the dynamic duo of a racist LOLcow/scam artist and a sexual predator,
>The notorious amount of "fans" who are so completely immersed in far-left toxicity and propaganda that Stalin and Mao would call for moderation (the amount of Antifa supporters in this fandom make me sigh),
>And not to mention how goddamn seriously everyone takes every little aspect of the franchise regardless of how insignificant it is?
There are many reasons to be embarrassed about being a fan of Transformers. Liking an attractive robot is not one of them. If you really think that this is a big deal then either A: you have no idea what the outside world thinks of the fandom or B: your priorities are skewed beyond recovery.

To be quite honest I don't really want a sexy Windblade to be a hill to die on because I don't really like the kit nor do I really like Windblade. The issue is that I'm tired of the same constant arguments of puritanical nonsense which amount to screaming 'sexy is bad, weebs are bad, purge it in flame'. It's not even a mass retail figure anyway, its a goddamn model kit. Yes its 'out of style' of the rest of the Furai stuff, that's true.

They still have a right to make it without getting backlash, however. All because society is extremely uppity about sexuality nowadays. This isn't as trashy as Kiss Player, anyway.

Ignore them. They're so devoted to their ridiculous rhetoric that they will blatantly lie and deliberately misinterpret you in order to maintain their perceived moral high ground.

On the plus side, new concept art of the replacement design for Furai Model Windblade:

I honestly want to bet this figure would have faded as some weird curio some people (weird or not) would have gotten here and there. When controversy started it was immediately propelled to infamy. Now more people will want it due to that.

I hope this do not become a personal attack thread.Disagreeing about a figure is one thing,but I don't like the "Let's label who I diagree" attitude.
