GO-BOTS Rock Lords Series 3: Rock Jewels - SOLITAIRE from Tonka
The Go-Bots cartoon series was full of awesome female characters, unfortunately very few were made into decent toys. Of the few that were immortalized in plastic, the best of the bunch would be the Rock Jewel, Solitaire. The Rock Jewels (or Jewel Lords) were a subset of a subset: Go-Bots > Rock Lords > Rock Jewels. The Rock Jewels had the distinction of having clear gemstone rockforms. Solitaire was introduced in the 1986 theatrical release of Go-Bots: Battle of the Rock Lords where she was a heroic ally to the Go-Bots. She was voiced by Margot Kidder soon after her reprisal of Lois Lane in Superman III. The character seems an odd choice to be made into a toy, but she is definitely the best fembot representation from the 80s (in my humble opinion).
This action figure is great. She looks feminine and robotic and gem-like and everyway she's supposed to look like. The bulkiness of the figure can make her look a bit masculine at times, but overall there's no doubt of her gender - which is a huge problem with older (and newer) fembots.
Her articulation is plentiful, but limited... if that makes sense. All her articulation serves a double-purpose of enabling her transformation (which is essentially a squatting pose for her, albeit with her head spun around). However, her articulation is all very 2-dimensional.. as if she's standing between two panes of glass with almost no forward or backward motion is possible. Still, she's pretty fun to pose regardless of these limitations.
Here is her diamond form. you can see how she's really just sitting in a squatting/lotus postion. Again, you can really see a lot of screwheads from the bottom view.
