Yeah, but she's armed, and ready to kick some butt. Which just makes her a video game heroine.

Yeah, the bikini armor is meant to be a nod to how impractical that style was for heroines in 80's anime.

Likewise, Rattrap got turned into a Choro-Q, Cheetor was turned into a cliche anime delinquent, Tigatron's cute girl figures were all turned into eraser figures (like the G1 Decoys). All aspects of the 80's that, like Ai's impractical bikini warrior armor, aren't looked back in fond lighting.

It is a bit suspect that Ai is one of the only instances of 80s regression that wasn't changed back to normal afterwards. Fan service!

I, for one, don't mind Ai's armor, very Urusei Yatsura-style. ;)^

To be honest, thats the look I know her as, so it didnt phase me. Not as much as this:

And dont forget that Hasbro has its own dubious imagery. Who was it that chose this shot for Optimus interacting with Elsa:

Hey Will, do you have a link to the article that accompanies that image. I'd actually really like to know why Disney dumped Mattel for Hasbro. (Please PM as to stay on topic. ;) )

New Photos of Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG20 Skids with Comparison to Hasbro Version

Postby william-james88 » Sat May 28, 2016 7:44 am

Motto: "'till All Are One"
Transformers Legends LG20 Skids is being released this coming week and we have some new pictures to celebrate that courtesy of Twitter users Tagoal and I_love_gabrine. We even have a picture comparing this Takara release to the hasbro rerelease we got a while back, whos gallery can be seen here.

As you can see, the Takara version is far closer in deco to Alex Milne's comic book model, which can also be seen below.

One of us already went there. Please, let's keep it at that person, huh? :PRAY:

I'm sorry, but in Dutch the word for cancer (along with other ailments like cholera if I may add) is used quite common as part of negative outings of any kind. Very trivially so, while cancer itself is no joke IMHO.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)
