I wasn't starting a flame war. That's a real scientific term for natural occuriring sex change. ;) As for Anne Ramsey like actress - would make the show lot more fun. :p

That is a very 2017 attitude to have.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:14 AM)

Um...no. Just call them by the gender they present as, please.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 07:35 AM)

Let's please not try to stir up a flame war in the shoutbox, especially not over sensitive issues like gender.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2017 - 01:55 AM)

Do people on the internet really need a reason to be mad?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 July 2017 - 10:13 PM)

They need to make a season of the Doctor having two heads, one female and one Male -just- to anger people!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 July 2017 - 09:22 PM)

Would the Doctor count as "transgender" once #13 debuts? Cause the Doctor has literally gone from man to woman. But on the other hand, I haven't heard of real life trans people flipping back and forth. Or for that matter, regenerating like a Gallifreyan.

Just found at Target in CT. The packaging datestamp is 70161, the same as the plate-less version on the pegs with him.

Oh, I agree, and removing his Cyberjet Face pushes the harmonization of two designs too far in one direction, I think.  

 

But the mouthplate is there on his packaging art, so that was a battle already lost anyway.

It just feels like he has absolutely nothing of Primewave in him now. It's incredibly disappointing.

We are G1. Lower your shields and surrender your unique character designs. We will add your aesthetic and engineering distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.

In all seriousness, I'm withholding judgement until I see the character design in action in the show. Aligned Soundwave's already shown up in his Prime body so a cool "upgrade" scene could totally win me over to the new design.

I admit that Starscream re-appearing in a G1-referential form didn't bother me. Not because of GEEEWUNNN but simply because I thought his Prime design sucked *shrug*
I generally liked Soundwave's Prime look though, so I'm gonna need a bit more in terms of how they handle the body "upgrade."

Starscream's worked because in story it was framed as him revisiting an earlier appearance to reclaim his "glory days". For Soundwave, the guy was never crippled by anxieties like that, so it just comes off as Geewun pandering.

I don't disagree. I'm just saying I could be ok with it if it's handled the right way.

note- I don't expect it to be handled the right way

Also I really dig Prime Soundwave's toy because it was a Deluxe-sized Soundwave that could properly use Laserbeak and Ravage. I don't think that's ever happened with any other Deluxe Soundwave figure. So...
