eeee!  I'm wondering why we didn't get a toy of her to go along with Windblade and Chromia, do you think it's because they decided to put out Arcee in that spot so they filled up their fembot quota for the Wave?  It's also been WAY too long since we got a good aquatic transformer, I want a new submarine!

Windblade, Chromia, and Arcee were already getting toys when Nautica was introduced.  She was made-up by the folks creating the comics to be an additional girl.  She was never meant to get a toy at the time, she was just another comics-only character like Pharma and Rung.

that makes sense, the thing is she kind of became my favorite of the trio.  If their goal was to create a character cool enough for people to WANT a toy of her they succeeded in a big way.

Well when they made her a female Doctor, that really grabbed my interest. Of course being a bot, she had to have a wrench rather than a screwdriver.

I'd guess because Windblade was the fan created character and Chromia is a G1 character, while Nautica is original to MTMTE.

But, yeah, I'd love to see a figure for her.  And Rung.  And... pretty much everyone in that book...

Also, Love the picture.  :)

yeah, but THEY were the ones who decided to pack in comic book issues that showed Windblade, Chomia, and Nautica as a trio, they spent most of that arc together and didn't even meet Arcee until the last issue.  It's like we got toys of Athos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan without Porthos, there's a hole there that needs to be filled!  Frankly I'm surprised that 3rd party companies haven't started making "not Nautica" figures to fill that exact niche...

I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro gives her a toy next year after combiner wars is over.  She should be really easy to reshell to or from Waverider given what we saw of her alt mode.  And it would be a Lost Light twofer.

yeah, ever since the fan poll resulted in Windblade the fembot floodgates have been opened.
