Looks good! I'll want to see what Reprolabels does for her though (like cover up that scanning thing).

I was kinda hoping that the Takara version would do something about that, because it's such an ugly blemish on an otherwise decent figure.

Yes, believe it or not, women indeed have arms. I know it is a startling revelation but we'll have to consider Strongarm ,and any other name with "arm" "elbow" or even "wrist" to be gender-neutral from now on.

Regrettably it appears She has some trouble with developing proper hands, so that may remain masculine for the time being.

Wait, you didn't know? There's been trailers for the show with her in them. She says stuff in the trailers! There's pictures of her in the galleries! How could you have not known the character was female yet?

Part of me is afraid that they'll make her (the uptight lady) and Sideswipe (the edgy bad boy) "a thing" in the show. UGH SO CLICHED

I know this is probably gonna start a huge debate among those who get all touchy about certain generalizations about how "fembots" should look, but what the hell...

I just cant condone a blatant male bot body with a blatant male bot name being made a female just to prove some kind of point. At least Strika looked like a big fat bloated woman but in a menacing sort of way. But Strongarm just looks silly. I never bothered to even look at the face in the pictures. I always assumed it was a guy. I would hope someone does a new head to give this big brute of a bot a face to match. Just my opinion. Now let the mayhem begin. :michaelbay:

Can anyone spot any significant differences between the TAV and Hasbro versions? :-?

Iirc, Strika is also female and she's built like a tank. Now, I'd like to see how Tomy will render anime style like those scenes in the Legend comics

Nope, not in the least.
Not all women are curvy, overly skinny supermodel-types. Not all fembots need to look like Arcee. Get over it and quit trying to manufacture pointless debates.

So a debate is deemed "pointless" because you dont agree with the oposing stance ?

I admit the image you attached much portrayed the character's body as being femine. But the toy just doest capture the same look. Robots are built, not born out of a belly. So unless her "creator" was trying to make a statement, theres no reason why she shouldnt have been created with a feminine body. G1 Firestar turned into a truck and still pulled off the look.

Have you forgotten that Hasbro is going for "simple" with the RID toys? We should expect blockiness from every character's toy in the line, regardless of gender. The toy doesn't capture the "more-slender-than-the-toy" look of the animation model because it didn't try to.

Same with the roundness of Grimlock's animation model vs. his more blocky toy.

Plus, in this continuity, the Transformers are born out of a belly. Cybertron's belly. The Well of All Sparks. There's no "building" involved in their creation. The Well "creates" their bodies when it gives birth to them.
