^Thankfully it's guys like you that get female characters produced in any quantity at all. The problem comes in when brand managers are inept at judging the size of the minority that wants those female characters, hence Loopy's example of TF Prime Arcee and the complete dearth of female characters in the AtLA line. I remember ten years ago going out of my mind to try and find Teela from the Masters of the Universe reboot line, and I'm still
waiting for my Transformers G1 Arcee and Elita-1. Sometimes they're overestimated, too, which is why Marvel Legends Wasp and Psylocke sat on the shelves collecting dust in the clearance aisles for years. It's a difficult balance not helped at all by little boys who think girl characters are lame or have cooties. Teach your kids that Wonder Woman and the Pink and Yellow Rangers are just as cool as the guy toys, and we'll have this problem solved in 20 years.
