What If: G1 had Fems from day 1
Posted 15 February 2012 - 11:49 AM
What if Hasbro had actually decided to make some of the original G1 figures female from the get go? Back in the 80's Boys lines had no females typically (Scarlet, Lady Jane, and Cheetara being the only ones I recall off the top of my head), so what if suddenly Hasbro had decided to shake that trend and G1 had more female characters in it as their competitor Gobots did (Crasher and Smallfoot being main cast members as well as many supporting fems).
Would molds with prominent... chests (Jazz, Prowl, Shockwave) have been good candidates, or would Tracks have been a fem all along perhaps. Would we have seen versions of Roadrage and Discharge in the casts perhaps?

Wow. I had somehow missed this revelation. THAT would have been a pretty interesting character,
Sooo... And I don't know if I really wanna ask this... But has anyone tried to imagine/sketch how a Deryized female version of the a Ratchet toy would have looked?
-ZacWilliam, makes me wonder if there was ever a planed Con counterpart. Usually you got one girl on each side in the 80s...

Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

Crazy. I thought it was going to be a link to TFA Red Alert being female and then getting replaced with Ratchet, but this is even more revelatory.

Im really shocked that theres not a single female in the entire US G1 toy run
Even He-Man had at least 3

Why do people seem to think Tracks was gay? I never saw that. He sounds like Mr. Howell from Gilligan's Island, but that's it.

WAY WAY back when Generation 2 first became 'G2' and retroactively created the fanterm "G1"
ramjet also likes toast and never let Skywarp near you and a set of stairs

And no, it never seemed the least bit noteworthy to me that there was a girl among the Dinobots. I understood that girls are more than capable of Smashing Stuff when they want to (hell, one of my grade-school bullies was a girl, and she left as many bruises and bloody noses as the guys).
