This says a lot....

I tried to go to this website to see this picture, and I got a page that says, "This site has been blocked due to 'Adult Content.'"

Never thought that'd happen with Transformers. This is a sad day. (that, and I'll need to explain to my boss that I wasn't trying to look and nudie pictures....)

Red doesn't look as bad there... I'm a bit torn, though - like the lighter red on the car, would prefer a darker red on the car mode - aquachange plastic, Takara you cheap sods!

Surpringly, the Proxy Server let me look at the pictures! This is putting the Hot in Rodimus and is not what we all think of as Transformers.

Saying that, the TF looks good. It's just the association that's putting me off.

Not bad. Glad she's wearing a dress, but kinda weird she still has the padlock. I'll just pretend it's ridiculous bling bling, or something . . .

Were you living under a rock for the past month?

That being said, Rodimus looks AWESOME. Glad I pre-ordered him, looks much better than Mirage.

The girl looks vastly different than her earlier photos suggested. She's much less "saucy" than Melissa.

Ignore him, he's a split personality of mine that somehow broke away from the main consciousness, but got lobotomised in the process. I'm just waiting for one of the staff to do the decent thing and ban him...

Don't let that worry you; I still believe that you are a normal pervert.

It's not the padlock (that was just weird). It was her pose. It is the others' poses (although I don't recall the first three BTAs being this bad). It was the comic. It's everything else...it's manga alien soft porn...why do people keep trying to be apologetic for it. In the beginning, I was (in a completely good natured way), "Those crazy Japanese, they sure do like some strange stuff." But that comic went into the really strange...which still, whatever, it's not my thing but if folks like that, more power to them. But they shouldn't try and explain it away as "you're just being closed minded, this is Japanese culture!" Or call me ignorant. I'm sorry, but the ignorant one is the one who looks at that comic and refuses to see it for what it really is. It's not like that alien Transformer's tongue was falic in nature...it was drawn like a friggin' penis, cliche' blood vessels and all.

To each his own, as I said, just don't call me ignorant because I'm uncomfortable with it.

(And really, pointing out that she must be "a young Chinese girl" is really not helping their case.)

(this wasn't aimed at you Nevermore, just your quoted post)

Ah, yes . . . culture. Riiiiight. That's why the original concept art was of her in a leather swimsuit . . .

EDIT: Forgot to include my reply.

EDIT 2: Before anyone starts: yes, that may very well be true, but I highly doubt it's what Takara had in mind with the concept art.

Probably not. These are disturbing on so many levels.
