To be completely fair, many - perhaps most - Transformers use their secondary color for their thighs, and Windblade uses her secondary color (jet black) for her midriff as well, but with Arcee its the porcelain white color and the literal belly button that pushes it over the line from the campy superhero look to slooty.

Edit: Also to be fair, a person might be able to make the case that G1 Megatron is 'dressed' like a male stripper.

Not to mention Windblade’s face is a different color than her secondary color


True, but even in her comic series she was said to be wearing make up, so you could debate what color her face really is. And sometimes Arcee's face and hands are a really faint pink, instead of the white used on her legs and midriff. In either case though, it's missing the forest for the trees; their overall looks evoke very different associations.

Transforming Starship USS Enterprise Design Revealed

Postby william-james88 » Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:59 pm

Star Trek vs Transformers artist Philip Murphy posted one of the most awesome Transformers tweets of the year. He posted his design of the USS Enterprise transformed into its robot form. The robot is called Fortress Tiberius and looks very much like you would expect with a name like that, sporting Fortress Maximus' head. Of course, this is just for the comic book series and not for any toyline, but it is an awesome design. The tweet says that we can see more of this in the upcoming Star trek vs Transformers #3.

It was an amazing opportunity to get the chance to design the ICONIC! Enterprise as a Transformer , if you want to see how Fortress Tiberius comes to be check out Star trek vs Transformers #3

Issue #3 came out on the 5th. In its pages, this form was given the odd spelling of "Fortress Tiberious", when Kirk's Roman-based middle name is correctly spelled "Tiberius" like in this art.

With the way they designed it, it's really not practical to make a transforming toy of that that would be able to look like that. It's very cheaty and halfhearted, with only a general idea of what the altmode is supposed to look like (much like how Filmation and Sunbow would have most likely done it, heyo!), rather than trying to actually adhere to the physical dimensions of the Enterprise in a way that would make use of the ship's mass for a believable feasible conversion process.

Seriously? That looks ridiculous and not in a good way. Like it would be a cheapo bootleg toy you'd find in some bargain basement store with an unimaginative series name like 'star formers' or... Never mind. Yeah, silly stuff...guess it fits with that comic though but just looks so uninspired.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot). Bumblebee was very mediocre though.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

I'm a huge trek fan and tbh am rather disappointed with this - the warp nacelles should be integrated better in the body for sure, though admittedly most design routes will end up in loads of kibble.

At least they're ships that transform into tf characters and not into human characters like the Star Wars ones.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

That to me sounds way better. Personally I would have enjoyed seeing the Enterprise from the movies captained by Shatner but it's still cool no doubt. :VEHI:

It probably would have been "better designed" if they weren't trying to go for the Sunbow style which is, let's say "cheaty".

This would have to be a parts former, even a third party company couldn't make this perfectly transform as pieces shorten magically in modes and parts look like they just get pulled off some where and put other places. To make this work as a concept, it would have been better if the bottom part of the enterprise formed the arms with the legs torso coming from the top part.
