I believe this is part of the subscription service which will be/is available to everyone.

Looks too androgynous. Needs more of a feminine touch (like her lips painted and such).

Yeah, and it costs an arm and a leg.

Well, since Slipstream is a female, she thankfully has a different head.

It's too poorly lit for me to make a proper decision. Time will tell I suppose.

1. TFCC heads are never released at retail.
2. These ones are actually relatively cheap compared to most exclusives.

NOT Fembot mould, period.
Because of this crap, we probably won't ever get an official slipstream any better than this. Hopefully a 3rd party company pulls it off.
Hasbro/Takara should have a fembot toyline where its just a bunch of female robots who still transform. Not only might it help with the female market, but it would round out our collections :grin:

Some of you are saying the mold doesn't look "feminine" or she doesn't look like a "fembot". I have to disagree. Since Day 1, the Starscream mold has looked more feminine than Arcee...tall, willowy, slender, curvy around the hips and chest...if that's not feminine, I don't know what is.

The mould has no proper breasty chest. Its hunched over like an old creepy man.
The shoulders are way too high up and the thighs aren't round enough. It just makes the mould look more like a creepy old man, which was made for Starscream. Theres enough subtle looks of the figure that are just too masculine. I think, anyway.

Okay, that I can agree with. The head isn't terribly feminine. I was mostly referring to the body of the Starscream mold, which has always looked very feminine to me.

I can see your point. To me, anyway, it still does look like a very feminine mold. I don't think fembots need robo-boobs to be fembots, though. Strika? Minerva? Nightracer? Freezon? Movie Arcee, Chromia and Elita-1? Energon Arcee? The original Flamewar? Flareup? Path Finder? Smallfoot? None of them have what you'd call terribly feminine chests, yet they're still easily identifiable as female. Well...all except Strika, Freezon and Nightracer, and the G1 GoBot femmes anyway.

Count me among the few fans who don't care if fembots are terribly feminine. I also don't understand the point of "lipstick" on a ROBOT..

All things considered... Hasbro/Takara have NO plans to put out a Slipstream. (or else they'd have never let the club do it.) This is hands down the best mold for it. Slim AND with high heels to boot. Head sculpt looks good. Count your blessings we're getting this character, and that it's THIS close to perfect. Quite excited about this one.

Maybe a 3rd party will help with some tiny touch ups to bring it up to perfection.

I like it. Slipstream is the only figure from all this that I'm interested in anymore. Anyone who doesn't want there's can just send it to me.

As was I. I find Prime Starscream to be just feminine enough in terms of mold, though I agree that it has some very masculine cues, a good head swap would make a perfect Slipstream. This is a FAR cry from a perfect new head for a fembot. It's a real shame, since the head is the one thing they got RIGHT with Airachnid.

You know, it's too bad Hasbro/Takara can't pull one of those nice PLANNED switcheroos like they did with Wheeljack/Tracks and Sideswipe/Sunstreaker. You know. Mold some man parts for one version, then some female shape parts and head swap :-?

ie. not just the head, but chest, hips, heels, etc...

Then surprise the wits out of us when they reveal the remold.

Heck, they should do that for ALL the molds!!! Femmebots for each mold! Woooooo! :KREMZEEK:

I like the head alot. It's a good fit for the Prime aesthetic, whereas a straight Animated head would look out of place. The teal and purple look great on this mold, though I'm curious how well they'll look in jet mode.

I don't get the whole issue with a 'feminine' mold. Does it have to have an hourglass busty figure with lipstick and curves all over? Male TFs aren't exactly all chiseled statues of David. It's like those silly cartoon animals whose gf are their clone, but with eyelashes and a skirt, to make sure we understand it's a woman.
