Heeding the call of Transformers Bishoujo Optimus Prime (releasing in Japan this month!), the second Autobot to roll out in the Kotobukiya Bishoujo series is her friend Transformers Bishoujo Bumblebee! Re-designed into the Bishoujo style by series artist Shunya Yamashita, the sporty and petite Bumblebee wears a casual hoodie over a light blue top, and short pants strapped with a light blue belt. The hoodie is topped with iconic horns from Bumblebee’s G1 robot head, and featuring colors and shapes that correspond with the the original robot body. Like Prime, she stands on an metallically painted Autobot logo base, and complements Optimus Prime in facing off against Transformers Bishoujo Megatron. She is available to pre-order today from various retailers, and releases around August 2023. Based on product descriptions, the 4th Transformers Bishoujo is on the way; is the next Bishoujo from the previous Anime Expo 2022 Fan Vote?

Why would I want an actual Dog Girl tho, I was thinking alongside the style of Strike Witches- esque Wolf eared girl dual wielding Katanas
Li Koran from SW or Lucca from Chrono Trigger?
Arcee a mom/aunt type? Legends was already the aunt type, just humanizing her into a Princess Leia appearance with the buns. As for Hotrod, JK type?
It'd just be kemonomimi, and not like, an actual dog-girl, since these figures are in gijinka-style.
If we're just making requests, I really want a Hot Rod and Arcee the most…
Kunoichi 6shot! Yes! Taciturn type (ninja don't talk or show their real side right?)? Bad guy at first vibe then reforms into a good guy trope?

Bah it was just a fan vote at a con for now. Although given the reception I don't see why they wouldn't continue with the line.
Really, though, that's just the style. Especially in lower-detail, "cuter" styles like this, they rely on spot highlights like that to add shape and definition, rather than overdo the details. It also reflects the beauty ideal of healthy, glowing skin.
Until we read it in the back of the package or art work, official artwork gets released………..
Reflection off smooth surfaces such as a mirror, an automobile, or a calm body of water leads to specular reflection. This reflection makes an object look glossy or shiny and is responsible for the lustrous or mirror-like appearance.
So she's a car inspired character
Has this actually been confirmed anywhere, or is it just conjecture?
We still have Starscream, after that who knows.
In Optimus's box it indicated Megs coming next. I wonder if the same for Bb? Or will she be the last
A little bit adding, kuudere originated from kuuru (Cool) and dere (loving), so it's not stoic or expresionless, those are more Dandere than Kuudere.
You seem to have gotten that a bit mixed up.
Kuudere is the personality usually described as "icy-hot" – a frosty, guarded, often emotionless exterior, but often warmly affectionate once you've gained their attention and trust.
Tsundere is more a "fiery, but soft" personality type – in its original incarnation, it used to describe a form of character development, where a brash and aggressive character mellows out to show their affectionate side. The term, however, quickly evolved into a singular personality trait, regarding a person typically deeply confused or in denial about their own affections that they tend to react in hot-headed and aggressive ways when pressured about them.
Kuudere: a Japanese term for a character who appears to not have emotions. They are often stoic, expressionless, and remain calm in stressful situations (more imho Shockwave)
Tsundere: adjective used to describe a person or character who swings between emotionally hot and cold, in particular when dealing with a love interest. Especially used to describe someone who is usually cold or cranky but occasionally shows a soft, kind, mushy side ( Sw does care for Ravage in numerous situations)
Wait, what are these types you're talking about? I'm clearly outside my normal realm here.
Or make Wheeljack a maniacal nerd
I think I've found one cute pic or her in Pixiv once, though I forgot the artist.
Bee has that effect
