Takara Decepticon Slipstream

Takara Decepticon Slipstream
The time has come to purge the universe of that accursed Megatron!
And forever seal my destiny as the one true ruler of the Decepticons!
The Decepticon Slipstream from Takara is purple, green, smiling and a fine representation of the robotic female form.

Personally we're still mystified that a robotic race bothers with gender - to the point that recently, IDW did a "Spotlight: Arcee" issue where it was revealed that during the Golden Age of Cybertron, a scientist named Jhiaxus decided to play with the Cyber/Nano Algorithms (CNA) of Cybertronians, creating female robots. Jhiaxus tried to build the perfect female Transformer - Arcee - but she fell short of his ideals and he discarded her.

Which created a very pissed off woman.

Later IDW decided to take this concept further by revealing that Anode and her lover, Lug, were transgender Transformers in transition - so Transforming Transgender Transformers. Seriously WTF!!!!

Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure

Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure
The last true daughter of Magneto
The Marvel Legends Lorna Dane - Polaris - Action Figure is a marvelous representation of one of the X-Men's traditional 2nd tier characters.

And yes, we mean 2nd tier. The former love team (Wasp really did a number on the now disfigured Alex Summers) of Havok and Polaris has always been a poor copy of the love team of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

Personally, save for stint in X-Factor (The formerly Government run one, not the one formerly run by Serval Industries), we preferred her more as one of the X-Men's staunchest villains back when she was possessed by the Marauder Malice in the 80's.

Let's see how she stands on her own - especially since she's about to go toe-to-toe against her ex Havok in the X-Men Blue comic book.
