The figure line that sees Autobots and Decepticons transform in an entirely different way is teasing a third figure to joint Optimus Prime and Megatron. Kotobukiya announced over on Twitter that Bumblebee will soon be added to the lineup in what appears to be a horned hoody and shorts? It's hard to make out much from the simple silhouette, but Koto knows their fanbase (as evident by comments on Twitter and MFC) so she'll likely have an appealing design.

Meanwhile pre-orders have finally opened for Bishoujo Optimus Prime. The new images of the figure show that she'll actually be coming with an alternate head featuring a stylized mask. She's priced at $150 and expected to ship sometime between April and February 2023.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the prime face plate looks like it might be movie design inspired.

As for Bee, going for a hoodie design is quite clever as the original does lend itself to it easy. What would have been fun is if the girl herself resembled adult Sari from Animated

That Bee may be a very kawai-desu loli character. I wonder if she will be the cute or prankster archetype? :-?

As for Prime, the preorders are up everywhere. Depending on the shipping price, it may be worth preordering from Japan due to the current weak yen.

I wish the glasses/shades were either a) removeable or at least b) swappable with something a bit more traditional looking. The crest on them kind of kills it for me, tipping it into 'trying too hard territory'.

Also... is it wrong I'd almost prefer Cliffjumper over Bee? But I know if Bee doesn't sell.. we'll never get around to Cliff lol.

Whether fans admit it or not, the Transformers brand in Japan has a history of crossover appeal with fans who collect anime girl type statues. The whole Kiss Player franchise from 2006 plays on that and this Bishoujo Transformers line is just the latest addition to this. The brand is going all out to legitimize this chapter by having non other than Tessho Genda, the voice of Convoy (G1 Optimus Prime in Japan), introduce this collection of statues in a video. Tessho Genda voices Optimus in Japan more often than Peter Cullen does in America, and lends his voice to a lot of official Transformers promotions so even if you never watched the G1 show in Japanese, odds are you will still recognize that booming voice when you watch the clip below.

In other Bishoujo news, there was a fan vote held for the next statue after Bumblebee and the winner was Starscream. This is great news for collectors of this line since that always means there is potential for redecos into other classic characters.

I'm really looking forward a Starscream Bishoujo statue. However, I know how anime figures works and even if repaints do happen, it always represents the SAME character. For Thundercracker and Skywarp, those are sure to be unique sculpts representing their unique traits and personality.

I wouldn't count on it here though. I posted earlier in this thread some straight G.I.Joe repaints that represented different characters. I fully expect "Starscream Blue" and "Starscream Black".

As far as Kotobukiya Bishoujo statues go, the only Joes repaints I'm aware of are the Baroness, Lady Jae, and Scarlet. All have color variants but they are not different characters.

Also, in Statue collecting it's important to have different poses and expressions for characters that normally looks "the same". Especially for main characters. I've yet to see lazy repaints for main characters in the expensive statues world.

No, Scarlett and Lady Jaye were different characters, they just didn't bother changing the names since they're pretty obscure but unique nonetheless.

I hope the other Seekers get better, but I'm not so sure. I'm sure we'll get Optimus in Magnus and Nemesis colors, Megatron will probably get a green repaint which should be fine. Maybe red and gold variants for Bee.

Maybe as obs characters a simple repaint is understandable. A "why not".
But Thundercracker and Skywarp are main characters so they cannot be simple Screamers repaint. But for oddballs like Red Guard and Hotlink, it's possible.

usually when that happens, someone comes on and starts complaining about it as a white knight type. :BANG_HEAD:

Still I want to see Arcee and Blackarachnia done in these. I like these gender bending ones, but I hope they give the girls some love too. I've seen some really awesome versions or human arcee and I think the Bishoujo statues could do an absolutely stunning version. :x

And I really want to see that broad g2 megatron done. yup yup. G2 megs is probably my favorite version tbh. If they do him, I hope they use a different design and no just repaint.

Many have heavy prejudices against collecting sexy anime figures.
"Only horny lonely young men collect these" they love to say.

Well, I posted before some videos that show that females can be geeks too. Now, I add that there's no age limit at being a geek too.

The Transformers Bishoujo line is taking up steam as it continues along while some of the statues are starting to come out. Optimus was released earlier this month, Megatron just came out and Bumblebee was announced last week. Below you will see images of all three, and it is our best look at the packaging as well. There are in hand images of Optimus and Megatron and promo images of Bumblebee. There are also preorder links for Bumblebee from Amazon. She is stated for a December release.

But not only would that Megs be stacked, I would do an unique concept for her. A street punk tag artist with a big-ass spraycan of purple paint. She would be wearing green streetwear and would have spots and splashed of messy purple paint all over her body.

I think that would be cool. 8-)

You know the drill, if there is an Optimus Prime figure out there, then get ready for the eventual Nemesis Prime redeco. Funny enough, it's not just for figures since the Bishoujo Transformers line is doing the same thing. An image has surfaced of the box for such a release where it will be called Decepticon Unicronian Herald Nemesis Prime. It isn't strictly a redeco as the girl has a different expression on her face, as seen in the art. This figure will be more limited than the previous one though, we see it is a limited edition on the box as well.

Kotobukiya has revealed on Twitter the fifth figure to hit the Transformers Bishoujo line and it's none other than Starscream! And this one seems to be hitting all the right notes with fans. Her short black hair is braided around the sides to imitate the side vents, red eyes and a tan to represent the dark face of the original cartoon design, red vest and skirt with a gray shirt and yellow striped neck tie to hit all the right body colors, blue gloves and heels with white knee-highs to finish the look off. And not only are the wings represented as a tote bag, but it's slung over her shoulder to get them in the proper position. Judging from the the reactions on Twitter even non fans of the line and non-Transformers fans in general are being won over by that devious smirk of hers. The figure was designed by Shunya Yamashita with more details coming soon. Now just imagine this figure in black and blue.

In other news we have a follow up on Nemesis Prime. She was made available this past weekend at Anime Expo 2023 in California and Kotobukiya says she'll also be available at future events outside Japan that they attend such as SDCC. There's a rumor that she'll also be made available online at some point but they haven't been verified. Nemesis features a new face sculpt and replaces Prime's briefcase with her signature red sword along with a Decepticon base.

Nemesis Prime is nice, but I still don't like the overall concept.

But that Starscream... woah! :x

I'm looking forward for the 3D pictures! And she may be the first one that I will buy, despite her no doubt 200$CAN price tag.

Nemesis might have looked better with the briefcase, the sword does nothing for it. I'll be skipping it.

Starscream backpack on the artwork with the faction symbols as a key chain/tag doesn't work for me either but will wait to see the statue. The white cuffed gloves look off too, might have been better for being blue. Plus a collar Carmen sanDiego style might have fitted the look better.

Just prime, megs and bee are definite purchases so far.

For some reasons, I didn't noticed the switch. But that sword looks like a cheapo accessory.

Still, if she would have flipped the bird instead of just pointing up like the normal version, that would have been an instant buy.

Yup :( as much as I like cthru plastics. Maybe they could have given her the g2 tanker trailer as a back pack or bizarre scabbard some how - if they are willing to blur scourge/nemesis as much as hasbro does. Not sure if they could do the swearing hands though.

I like the fact that because Starscream is a darkish-grey, they made her tan. Plus the wings-bag is a clever touch.
