Yeah, that one who had a thing for Seaspray (re: the mermaid). That girl, who loved Powerglide, Circuitbreaker, the girl that Buster liked (How old was she?).

Indeed. In terms of official attempts at fan service, give me Classics and 25th Anniversary GI Joes*, any day. Oh, and the occasional homage figure.

*Anyone who's a fan of GI Joe, who hasn't check this out yet, I highly recommend it. They're still working out the articulation (they've fixed the hip-articulation, but they haven't fixed the elbows to hold two-handed weapons), but the sculpting is out of this world, and they serve as a phenomenal update to fan favorites. Plus, the first mailaway figure is Doc, who hasn't been released, since the v1 figure was sold, 20 years ago.

I admire you for coming out and waving your sexuality out there for others to see, as well as paving the way for others that are kind of turned on by robots but wondering 'am I normal?'.

Yeh, it was a lesson picked up by, oh, Wildman circa '91? Earlier mayhaps? Gotta love that "T&A = Adult" equation you've got going on there. Basically, if I'm after cheap titilation, I can sort of think outside the whole Transformers thing. There's porn, and Transformers. There's no real need for a crossover, same sort of way you have Transformers and Sergio Leone films. No real need for a Once Upon a Time in the West remake with Optimus Prime murdering people to make way for Raiden's Trainbots. This isn't about sexually repressed freaks (no offence, like) going "OH NOES! BOOBIES!!!". It's about people not beating off over robots and cartoon characters.

The problem is if this thing happens, there's a fair chance real people will think Transformers fans get the horn from pictures of robots, i.e. messed-up deviants like yourself. Again, no offence.

Holy ****, boy, you're 15. Go get Suicide Girls pictures off ImageFap or something, please...

Why yes, I am in my twenties and therefore can either buy proper porn or even have actual sex. Sometimes with other people.

And lets remember that so far we've come up with a grand total of two human female characters that aren't children throughout all their appearences...

Thingy from the comics? Mind, she as good as did anyway...

EDIT: Jesse. Boy, what a memorable character.

Oh ****. Circuit Breaker. I can see it now, Josie posing in front of Windcharger his (actual) magnetism stripping the tin foil away.

For ****'s sake, teenager, wipe that off the screen before you post here. Family site and everything.

They're not allowed to use the Marvel Characters anyway. Now we'll never get a sexy Bomber Bill pinup... D:

Thank God for that.


The Marvel characters thing in general, not specifically the Bomber Bill thing. That's the downside


Random toy/porn crossover anecdote: I bought the other half a 1980s Cindy for Christmas, only to realise she was dressed exactly the same as a girl in a Color Climax film I've had on video for years. Weirded me out, that did.

EDIT: Hey, looks like we've all forgotten that looker Jubilee Off Of The X-Men, what with her memorable character and all.

Verity's jailbait, right? Because the thoughts of a "sexy" Verity pinup sends shivers down my spine. Actually, the whole thing in general is doing that...

She isn't like any teenager I or anyone else have ever, ever heard of.

Jessica Swafford? I mean, this thing's already messed up beyond belief. Why not have a tasteless cripple picture thrown in?

She could be an actual teenager (She could just about pass for 15) or she could be an Avril Lavigne 23-year-old teenager. I'm sure Furmbot mentions her age at some point, but then, I'd have to pay attention to Verity to remember.

I have no idea why Avril Lavigne popped into my head just there. @___@

According to the Avril Lavigne Wikipedia article, "Lavigne has also featured in a comic series called Make 5 Wishes. She stars as herself, a pop star, who is idolized by the protagonist of the story."

That's hilarious.

All of you naysayers should read the thread about the book on the Allspark forum. The man who came up with the idea says it's PG-13, and the people there support the idea. Maybe if you guys read the thread, you wouldn't be so opposed to it.

I'll see your one set of reactions and raise you another.

Though I'd suggest taking informal feedback polls with huge amounts of salt, as Transformers / New Avengers sold very well.

That just means there's no nudity. There's still the sketchy possibility of underage girls/robots in rather . . . compromising poses.

Hey, it can't be any worse than Kiss Players, can it? Trust me, nothing could be worse than Kiss Players. At least this book will have no Japanese perversion. Also, wouldn't it be nice if the fembots were a little more fem? The only real feminine TF is Blackarachnia.

And at the very moment I read this post I was putting my Avril albums on my MP3 Player (I need no pity) now that's scary.

Unless one of the fan artists they use is Japanese. Still, is American perversion any better?

How about a creator's calender? Andy Wildman in a thong, Furman as a French Maid and Pat Lee on a normal day.

And if you want drawings of female looking fembots why not try actual women? They're more plentiful, won't give you paper cuts and when they sober up they might not even run off screaming.

There was Charlene she was probably in her 20's plus they wouldn't need to redraw her just copy that panel where she's soaping down Skids.

Interesting TFU bios for the Omnibots, interesting to see a few different traits a bit of pragmatism some selfishness, abit of shell shock.

So because it can't be worse than the worst thing ever, it's oviously a good idea? Maybe I read it wrong... maybe your IQ is 15.

Yes, it won't have the excuse that it's just the company behind it mimicking other lines, it'll be a company half-arsedly following a ten-year old trend (seriously, do comic comanies do Swimsuit specials anymore? Image spin-offs don't count...). Actually, to be fair on companies, this seems to be the brainchild of a few masturbating fanboys...

To copy a phrase, I'm sure you're a very nice person, but you are actually a moron. If they don't have tits and go around seducing people they aren't feminine? Your idea of someone being feminine is a bad girl with bumps who sluts her way around to her own ends?

Have you ever actually met a female? Lara Croft doesn't count, BTW.

How does one make a Transformer look sexy, anyway?

A common trend in fan art (And unfortunately, in published material), is to have Arcee's crotch thingy look like a thong (). I mean even if you get turned on by robots (I never thought I'd say that), how much further could they sex a Fembot up, without just making them look like weird porn stars in robot costumes? And if that's what people want -- surely there's actual porn that caters for such an audience? I mean, hasn't the porn industry covered every fetish imaginable?
