So how much of Bumblebee's run time do you think will be on Cybertron? Will it just be the opening scene, or do you think they might show more?
>>7265994Hopely the first few minutes since those designs are awful
The OP of this thread vigorously enjoys getting his ass pounded by the mods, it's a sick fetish for him. Do your part to get him off by reporting his shitpost threads!
>>7266022Yeah, do your part by posting more comics! That'll show him!
I don't understand why you even do this still, it's been over a year what are you getting from it?Why don't you just leave if /tfg/ bothers you so much? Nobody wants you around in the first place.
>>7266030I don't see what's that bad about wanting to discuss toys in a toy board
>>7265984If they were going to put molded detail across two seperate panels on the legs you'd think they'd make a better effort to make sure those leg panels are flush against each other. Or maybe even slightly adjust the detail so it isn't very slightly on two seperate panels making the gap look worse.Also I just noticed the cab lights are very slightly coloured orange and that the arrows on his arms are a darker shade of red. Wtf this isn't toon accurate anymore.
>>7265984>Remember this is a general to discuss Transformers toys, report any movie or comic discussion that does not involve the toys>literally the 2nd post >>7265994
>>7266049Nobody wants to talk to you.
>>7266051It's a painted prototype, so maybe'll see a production sample at the next convention.
>>7266054Ok buddy, just keep seething over there
>>7266051>Or maybe even slightly adjust the detailAnd ruin the sacred cartoon accuracy?! There shall be NO deviations from the model sheets allowed, you heretic.
>>7266058Imagine the day Takara invents shapeshifting toys that cost $5000
>>7266051Where are you talking about?
>>7266003this board is 18+ only, baybies go elsewhere>>7266003
>>7265984Oh god, that backpack!I'll stay with MP-10 or go with a third party figure, any suggestions
>>7266148Forgot to post pic
>>7266148MS toys for a highly refined MP-10 with a slightly more cartoonish look and a completely real transformation in the chest, no fake grill or windows.Transform Element [though you may want to recolour the windows somehow, they're very dark on stock] for a prime thats a bit more like the cartoon model, just, from better episodes or perhaps the movie than what they based this weird, all-edges-rounded-off new MP on
>>7266030There's literally no reason to complain about links or redirections in the OP, most only use it to find the thread in the catalog.And I don't want to discuss current media anyways because it all looks like shit. Cyberverse could've been good but the animation is ugly and they turned it into The Windblade Show, IDW is just garbage, who knows or cares for Bumblebee.
>>7266215People are fine with links, it's the antilinkfags that get triggered by them
Here linkfucker, have anotherhttps://discord.gg/j8XeYwN
>>7265984>500 bucksyeah, no
>>7266053Shut up.>>7265994I'm assuming it will just be used in flashbacks or used to explain the whole war between decepticons and autobots.
>>7266149It's upsetting that this was the first figure to actually make a decent optimus head...
>>7266215>I don't want to discuss current mediaTherefore nobody else is allowed to.
>>7266411Aside from the other two MP Optimuses you mean?
>>7265984For that price you can also get a DX Soul of CHogokin Combattler V, and Look at what you get in the box. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIVpdlqBHi8
Congratulations on killing /tfg/, OPYou finally got what you wanted.
>>7265984Buid one Yo Self ya Gitz
>>7266865Not really, I just wanted to discuss toys in a toy board
>>7266943And you ruined it with your unbridled autism. Well done.
>>7266926The new MP Optimus is 50000 yen, but that one is 40000.
>>7267297Be careful anon, your autism is showing again.
>>7266149Fuck the more I look at it the worse it gets guys
>>7267310Yeah, it must be difficult for you to grasp the concept that a Transformer can actually have that much articulation. Don't blame you, it's understandable if you only buy Transformers.
Looks like OP is trying to do what I once done, but being overzealous with the whole /toy/ only ruleWhat he's doing isn't wrong but I know the thread ain't gonna like it, OP you do know if the thread likes literal kids toys over mp's they ain't gonna stand for this
>>7267319That pic illustrates why I love official Takara Shockwave so much. Quakeblast is also cool and I like him but Laserwave is such a little dork and I can imagine him pleading for them to stop in his David warner impression voice. Its so perfect in my head.
>>7267329>Laserwave is such a little dorkObligatory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-ItfWY3xMQ
>>7267333Pretty much exactly what I was thinking of, really. I like having pathetic nerd Shockwave along with murderkillbeast Shockwave.
>>7267319Out of those three shockwaves I like the way the Takara plays most. Not to say the other two are bad, far from it.
>>7267313Anon, you are the only anon who gives a shit whether or not tf-related tv/comic stuff bleeds over or not. Look now at how inactive and slow your thread is, because nobody wants to come here and talk to you. Nobody likes you and everyone agrees you're a blight on these generals.
>>7267609It's not what people like or not, it's the rules. If you want to discuss things other than toys go to other boards.
>>7266030He is an allspark/tfw poster that gets triggered by Kira and Archer. Should give you a clue who he is.
>>7265994These scenes were probably a late production thing when it was clear the whole thing was a reboot so don’t expect much.
What did I do wrong? I was under the impression Ft08 Grinder was taller than MP10
>>7267806You got an oversized mp10 lad
>MP-10 the remix is 400 USDw h y
>>7267812Son of a! Oh well. I tried but I'm retarded
>>7267755Let the janitors do their work then. You're not in a position to be enforcing rules. In fact, every single post of you bitching about "muh rules" is less related to the topic at hand than the Transformers comics/tv shows posts.
This guy isn't too bad. The combined form is nice, but the individuals that make him up are pretty bad.
>>7265994Just a real shame they aren’t smart enough to do high end animation movies like dc entertainment
>>7267840It's impressive how the Consturctions ended up better. They suffer, but their issues are nowhere near as bad.By the time Takara released the UW version, the only real flaw was that Scavenger and Bonecrusher should have been larger arms.
>>7265984So who is this for? What would compel someone to purchase this over MP-10 which is cheaper and has been readily available for years now?
>>7267846Well they don't have the backing of a Hollywood powerhouse like WB.Paramount has been the short bus of the major studios for a long time. And now they don't have based Robert Evans to bail them out of their fuckups either.
>>7267893The fact that this new Optimus doesn't have limited articulation range helps.I own MP-10 and really like it, but I'm going to buy this new one too because even if I'm not a G1 kid Optimus cartoon design is absolutely iconic, and as an action figure it seems to be miles better than MP-10.
>>7267893Not to defend MP-44, but MP-10 has become outdated, and this also panders to people who wanted a more animation acurate OP
>>7267908I recommend waiting for a Black Convoy version since that will probably be super basic, and much cheaper.
>>7267319At the risk of being off topic, does anyone have the image like this but it’s like a 3-way brawl between 3 different 3P MP refelector teams?(You can post the pic on the 3P thread and then just leave the link here)
>>7267906>>7267908I mean the more I see it the more I like it, pic related is neato. But then shots like >>7266149snap me back to reality. I suppose I am satisfied with MP-10 and on the whole my collection doesn't need another Optimus.
>>7267912Or just flat out ignore the mold and go for one of the two 3P offerings
>>7267806MPP10 fuck I forgot! Oh well.
Are we going to see predaking discounted?I'll pick him up for 50 bucks why not
>>7267981He's already being sold at discount. A few days ago he was at 95, and toy he was at 83 bucks on Amazon.Even if he drops to 50, I won't buy it since the toy has way too many issues to warrant a purchase.
>>7267987I remember shitposters coming in into the turd party thread telling us how MMC predaking was done and how much better the official shitpile would be.
>>7267991I own the MMC and its really not great, either. There's a reason everyone is kinda anticipating the MP attempts now.
>>7267993Chug scale combiners are out of fashion with goyworld making the 2ft partsforming messes that are popular now.Fuck combiners desu. I'd rather have good team transformers that don't combine and then a fuckhueg action master so the individual bots aren't dumpster fires.
So what is the best Titans War Powermaster Prime to get? Should I pay out the ass for the Takara twopack with Godbomber with the rest of the Masterforce heads? Or the US release? Or the Takara version or it's US multi-pack?
>>7268006I recommend just waiting for someone to post theirson Amimami. I've seen both Godbomber and Ginrai posted for 3500 yen, each on the pre-owned section.They currently aren't available, but they've consistently sold them for way less.Buying them new is insane.
>>7268012>>7268006You can get regular Titans Return Optimus Prime for about $40-50 (normal price). If you are wedded to the original US PM Prime, you should stick to the US version. The Takara version is basically retooled to make it Masterforce accurate. Godbomber is pretty crappy but that's just my opinion. Unless you really want Hosehead, there is no reason to buy the super duper box set with him and Minerva.
So the jet still has a pile of crap underneath, and the combined mode looks nothing like it should.At least the people who loved Jetfire's robot mode will be happy.
>>7268179The combined mode looks like shit. Again.
>>7268179On the other hand, the jet mode is still less bad than the original, the transformation looks alot more fun and the combined mode will atleasth ave basic poseability.It's an improvement in every way.
>>7268199'twas shit to begin with. I've made better designs with tinfoil and crayons.
>>7268215Yeah but those weren’t in a movie when I was 10 so I don’t care
>>7267824He knows, he does this on purpose as a shitposting tactic. Everybody is aware of this by now.
>>7266926OY DAZ A FAST UN CUZZA ITZ RED
Apparently you can push out the blue translucent pieces on Prime's grill and headlights to give him a more earth form look.
>>7268399Nice, what about the bot mode's backpack?
>>7268399the gatling guns and greebles just makes it look alien
>>7268179That undercarriage is nasty but I'm loving that robot mode.
Found this sucker at Target along with some Seige deluxes. VW Bee is perfect, though TLK Bee has some issues.
>>7268401>>7268404Someone cut the hinge connecting the backpack/truck hat and unscrewed the gatling guns. It can still transform without it but it looks a little silly.
>>7268430From the top. I can't help but think Hasbro is planning to sell a retool of this later down the road as the earth version.
>>7268430I perfer the original look than that
I finally found a Scoop for cheap to start my Slicer custom.The shoulders will be the biggest issue.
>>7268458You posted in the wrong thread friend.
>>7268504No, he posted in the right one
>>7268508Nah senpai. This is the Kira thread made to trick idiots like you. The real thread is much more engaging
>>7268538Guess who also has more posts? /V/. You want to be like like /v/? That's gonna be a yikes from me.
>>7268548Then do it on the right board stupid, no reason we should have 2 boards
Hey tfgen, where can a get extra weapons compatible with the titans return toy line? A lot of the guys have extra places for bits and I wanna give them more guns and stuff.
>>7268579We don't have two boards anon, there is only one /toy/But if you meant the right thread, I am in the right one already
>>7265994Looks like a shitty video game
>>7268429You have my sympathies. Both are shit.
So the toon version of Sunstreaker and the upcoming Hound are meant to complement MP-44 as the two last companions of Optimus Prime.I heard that Mp-39 Sunstreaker is getting reissued next year as it is currently sold out at the normal price.
>>7268905Looks like a really cool video game.
>>7266149>HONEY GET IN HERE HE GOT DOWN FROM THE ROCK
>>7267939>you can put a little plastic dude inside it that you can't even see because the windshield plastic is nearly opaque since it needs to hide the clusterfuck of fake chest parts insidelol>>7268399This alt mode looks more like a futuristic Earth truck than a Cybertronian truck. Like kind of what Prime should have upgraded to by "2005".
>>7270776>cartoon pandering has hit such maximum saturation that they are now planning MP releases to match character appearances in famous scenes to try and sucker gewunners into buying figures just so they can recreate le "epic scene from muh childhood".Although I suppose if I were desperate for sales, I'd aim at the lowest hanging fruit, too.
I'm still not seeing what makes MP44 450$. About the only thing it's doing different from MP36 is coming with a big plastic box.Like seriously unless there's a fucking autoblow in that trailer this shit is 200$ extra for no reason whatsoever.
>>7271028>Big Plastic Box: $100>Sense of completion and satisfaction for autists to finally have an utterly awful Optimus Prime that looks like it stepped right out of a shitty cartoon: $100That's about it. Takara caught on and realized that the MP collector market is full of fools and money just begging to be parted.
>>7271028I think MPs are just going to be these exhorbitant prices now. This is the third one in a row that's more expensive than the previous. They obviously can't just keep driving the price up but I don't expect we'll ever see a return to the $90 ones.
>>7271209>return to the $90 ones.lol, and those were the fucking BBTS prices. Importing the car-sized MPs used to cost under 70 bucks, depending on exchange rates and shipping costs.
>>7271209Getting minibot MPs for less than 100 would be a relief at this point.
>>7271028The reason is that they're reducing MP releases to 1 or 2 a year.This year we were supposed get 2 but Beast Wars Megatron got fucked up and delayed until May
>>7271218Those days are long over now. Funny, I actually bought old MP Red Alert for $80 shipped from mandarake last week ,though. Glad I found one, can't deal with the painted over headlights on the newer one.
>>7268435The Siege Leader Optimus Prime uses the Siege Ultra Magnus cab (and new trailer armor), but this might get used for another Nemesis Prime.
>Bumblebee speaks in new movie according to IGN interviewThey wouldn't dare surprise us with a mouth, would they??
>>7271324>my uncle is Aaron Archer
>>7271569You have my profound sympathies. James Roberts is my godfather.
>>7268583>Hey tfgen, where can a get extra weapons compatible with the titans return toy line? A lot of the guys have extra places for bits and I wanna give them more guns and stuff.A couple figures have upgrade sets from Nonnef but unfortunately nobody just sells bags of guns
>>7271223It seems like Takara mainly does reissues now. Ironhide/Ratchet and Primal are getting reissued.Rumour has it that Dinobot and Sunstreaker are getting one mid year.
>>7271191>Big Plastic Box: $100>Sense of completion and satisfaction for autists to finally have an utterly awful Optimus Prime that looks like it stepped right out of a shitty cartoon: $100>All these people buttblasted about the price/looks of this release and the fact that some people like it and are going to purchase it: priceless>For everything else, there's dealing with it
>>7273664>>7271191As someone who doesn't follow TFs regularly anymore, but still buys the odd TF that squeezes my nostalgia bladder hard enough, how come Hasbro isn't releasing these MPs to the US anymore?Wouldn't they cut the costs since more are sold in the US than Japan?
>>7274571>how come Hasbro isn't releasing these MPs to the US anymore?They are. BBTS/TCP/etc. online retailers go through Hasbro Asia for TakaraTomy items. It's still the same company making the money.The old Hasbro-packaging MPs are essentially for that small bunch that still buy from physical retail or the one-time buyer that don't know better.
>>7267908>MP-10 has become outdatedSo, what you're saying is you're going to keep buying the same toy with minor improvements in engineering until you die?I mean, fuck it, I've got three Optimuses and three Hot Rods, but those took a fuckload of convincing myself, and that's with them all having radically different designs from one another.At some point you just have to say, "this toy is good enough". Otherwise you'll never be satisfied.
is it too late to find rook?
>>7273664lol sourgraping poorfag
>>7274616I've reached the point where I can't even be bothered with MPs anymore. I skipped a ton of them after MP-9 was such a letdown (ironically, it has grown on me since) and with Takara making so many Decepticon ones mall exclusives (You want Thundercracker? Ha ha fuck you), I don't feel like getting back to it either.I've even considered selling the lot, but I can't make up my mind about which ones to keep.
>Masterpiece Soundwave 2.0>51,000 YenYou know it is coming
Has anyone tried removing the kibble off MPM-07? Curious to see how it looks and holds together without it.
>>7274657Literally nothing wrong with soudwave to warrent a 2.0. An MP13+ on the other hand I totally see happening.
>>7274622If you're talking about at the local Walmart, obviously too late, yes. You might have to pay the Slowbro tax on eBay.
>>7267908MP-10 is only outdated in articulation and range of motion.
>>7274616But this isn't a minor improvement, it's an entirely different design getting made into a toy and that's pissing you off for some reason. A minor improvement would be if they did what they had with Starscream: taking the old mold, retooling a few things, maybe throw in new elbows or knees, and selling that to you all over again. Instead they decided to make it an entirely different figure that offers something unique.
>>7274625I love the bloodborne fallacy.>YOU WANT IT>PLEASE BUY IT>ANY CRITICISMS ARE JUST MANIFESTATIONS OF JELOUSY OF NOT OWNING ITIt got so bad at some point that BB/goldface shitposting was banned on sight.
>>7274625But warden has nothing to do with MPs
>>7274687>Literally nothing wrong with soudwave to warrent a 2.0Soundwave is my least favorite MP of those I own. Aesthetically, I like it, it's got that G1 look while still feeling modern and not being stupidly accurate to the cartoon, but as a toy it really sucks. Leg and hip articulation is handled extremely stupidly, ankles are limited which really makes him a drag to pose, and for only having to transform into a box, he does it with an extreme lack of elegance. Not to mention his tape eject/storage gimmick which is generally a pain in the ass and hardly works. So much about MP-13 feels like it was Hasui doing a rush job, especially after how masterful the transformation on MP-10 was.I'm pretty sure that the only reason MP-13 gets praise is because it does indeed look impressive, and it's Soundwave, probably the biggest meme character in the franchise besides Optimus himself. MP Soundwave is riding on recognition of the character alone. As a toy, it's pretty lame, even compared to its peers. If it were upscaled, its engineering actually makes it feel more like it belongs with the pre-MP-10 figures.
>>7274692so, rook is not on, like, the discount pile or something?
>>7274746oh my naive child
>>7274756Nope, the actual Groove-limb got announced and released far later so everyone got Rooks for their Defensors. Also, guys were doing things like this with their Rooks.
>>7267908>MP-10 has become outdatedI don't think it has. Articulation could be better, but it's not bad. Really, if anything, MP-10 has become underrated as a toy, because it had the extreme misfortune of being the posterchild for a new direction of the MP line shortly before they decided to abandon that direction. MP-10 is still an absolutely stellar Optimus Prime figure with a clever, yet intuitive transformation and the perfect level of compromise between both modes. None of that can be said for MP-44, which is just a cartoon-accuracy wank-fest at the expense of literally everything that makes a good transforming robot toy.
>>7274622I'll give you mine, he's just been collecting dust
>>7274756No way. He's $42 at cheapest on ebay, and $80 on amazon.
>>7274776The back’s pretty clean,and not all hollow like ironhide.
>>7267884Is it because Dev had six guys to form him while Pred had only 5 to bulk up with?
>>7274779Still feel like they should have made the light-bar more future-y/cybertronian.
>>7274772>>7274774The waist and legs still seem too small.
>>7274780It kind of is. The only real "suffering for it" figure of the bunch is Long Haul, but this allows Hook to not have to worry as much for the combined form. Meanwhile, for Predaking and his attachments you have the wingpack from Divebomb, the thighs, and both arms having "shoulder chunks" that hang on their back. Predaking is definitely more than the sum of his parts, but the individuals all suffer a bit more for it.And yet I saw a review that said Predaking is better than Devastator. Shrug.
>>7274772Looks neat. I probably won't buy it unless one of the repaints is particularly enticing, since it basically looks like "MP Lite">>7274779Love that sculpted detail on the inside of the doors. Reminds me of an '80s mecha anime.>>7274782I really like this car mode, though. Reminds me of all the concept sports cars on magazine covers in the '90s that were like "This is the car you will drive in THE FUTURE!"
>>7274732I guess this confirms takaracucks are also snoycucks
>>7274772>all that clear plasticYikes.
>>7274782Should've just release it in earth mode.
>>7274772Love it from the waist up, legs are too thin.
https://transformers.hasbro.com/en-us/brands/botbotsBotbots profiles are up.
>>7266053Primus, I love those Transformers comics from Marvel Uk. Post your favorite UK cover or UK toy advert. Then report OP as for trolling outside of /b/
When do we get a toy of this movie design?
>>7274571TRU is gone, so they only have Amazon and Diamond for retailers of anything this high. BBTS, EE, etc don't have enough reach for a MP mold. Walmart doesn't want them. No one at Target understood the question
>>7274877Why is Megatron coloured like Grimlock?
>>7267893MP-10 is a great toy, but the basic version is getting pricey. The repaints are all cheap because only a few people want black, purple or gold Optimus. $450 was too much, but free DHL delivery from Amazon Japan for $315 is worth it to me. Since I don't buy a lot of toys anymore, this one big toy will be a centerpiece on my shelf for quite awhile. Once I get it and have it's full measurements, I'll get a nice display case for it from the local sports memorabilia store or just make one if I can't find one big enough.
>>7274890He was gold in a lot of the early UK comics. No idea why
>>7274890>>7274896Probably using the box art as a color guide.
I like big butts and I can not lieYou other brothers can't deny
>>7271470Bumblebee has already spoken multiple times.
>>7274908I like this mold in concept but not in execution.
>>7274892>centerpiece on my shelf>display caseJust get a statue if you're not even going to do anything with it. It's probably cheaper, too.
>>7274923That'll be $1,299. Plus tip.
>>7274943Holy shit, I take it back about the cheap thing. I've never looked into statues before. Why the fuck does something that can't even pose let alone transform cost so much?Though I did find this upcoming one that's only $160 and looks more like it stepped out of a cartoon than any other figure.
>>7274950>Talks about something he knew nothing aboutCongrats on proving yourself to be an idiot, I guess.Do us all a favor and shut up now.
>>7274955The classic>why are statues so expensive?>waahhhh why are toys so expensive?
>>7274950Statues are expensive because resin molding can’t be done on anywhere the same scale as injection molding and the difference in paint and detailing is huge.
>>7274625How is it sour grapes or being a poorfag when I'm going to buy it? I'm only laughing at all this ridiculous drama over a toy pricing/design.
>>7274908>>7274905OMGThe core bot is a partformersJesus Christ why?
>>7274943Is this real? It looks like they just took an MP-10, locked it in one pose, blew it up and buried it under a bunch of extra molding and paint. I feel like this is a form of plagiarism.
It's officialthe nightmare will never end.
Anyone got pics of Siege Optimus equiped with Cog?
>>7274717The first Starscream MP is the retool. The second Starscream MP is the original prototype pictured in magazines before the release of the first Starscream MP.
>>7275053No, but I do have COG covering TR Optimus in base mode.
>>72659945-6 minutes I know from a critic who went to screenings. Gave the film 7/10. Transformers franchise is on the right direction. He said there is a robot in every scene minus some family scenes. Film can be interpreted as a reboot but a little as a prequel too but too many new contradictions to the first film and design change.
>>7275036They have so much of that shit back logged in a warehouse, it's gonna take another year to unload it
>>7274625>if you don't buy novelty crap then it means you're poor, no one ever hates shit
>>7275066This is the new narrative for literally every poorly-received toy/game/movie/show/whatever.>"You don't like this product? Well the problem is clearly with the consumer!!!"
>>7267908Mp 10 was really only outdated for me in the arms so I got upgrade kits. It's such a bulky heavy figure that I don't need super good legs like gundams or aerial poses.
>Bumblebee could actually get good reviewsWow,this will be weird for a Transformees movie...
>>7275083I'm excited, if this film really is good [which going from the info we've had, what we've seen, and the record of Travis Knight, it very well can be] It'll be one of my favourite movies in a long time
I swear this expensive Sunbow shit was not helped by dumb bastards willing yo pay more for MOTUC that looked like a bad cartoon or feminazis dropping $100 on new Jem dolls that looked 2% better than the 80s pieces of shit they already own only because they looked vaguely like another shitty cartoon. Anyone dropping a premium for lower quality is free to spend their money on it, and I'm free to think they're retarded.>>7275074Don't forget>it failed because of politics/diversity/reason that fits my narrative, rather than it being actually crap>piracy killed it, we need to throw pirates in prison for 10 years to save the industry>it only broke because you misused it, companies make excellent quality pieces and never fuck up>>7275078MPP10 blew it out of the water though and MP10-V exists as a cheap option.Lewin might even be worth the $300 yet they fell so short in many ways>die cast parts painted over and could have been plastic, shiny bits are chromed plastic rather than die cast>removing the folding wheel covers, instead having the wheel bricks pop off for no reason
>>7275083don't matter, Hollywood tosses out whatever numbers it wants to. No matter if it's the same Bayformers shit designs we've had from day one or crap writing it'll magically do well because Hollywood Accounting will tally it up nicely.Unless they need a big film to fail in which case the numbers will magically be low so they can scream "piracy is killing us, pass new laws!" I'd trust an actual mafia family before I trust the MPAA.
Just got Siege Sideswipe and Hound and lads, I think they've finally done it. They made the kino toyline.
>>7275094Pic of the toys and you having an orgasm or it didn't happen.
>>7274687His tape deck mode is utter shit but Takara doesn't give a fuck about altmodes.The real issues are that he has pinned leg flaps that split apart, and his hips are brittle as well. The bird tapes are also notorious for breaking due to having very thin pinned sections>b...but mine is fine!Good for you. You've been lucky so far.
>>7274753The thing I hate the most about him is how his weapons just stick onto the back, rather than being concealed in a battery compartment like on the original toy. It's fucking lazy.>>7274657At this point I'd rather Magic Square or some other Turd Party do one that doesn't look like shit or cost a house payment.
>>7275104>The thing I hate the most about him is how his weapons just stick onto the back, rather than being concealed in a battery compartment like on the original toy. It's fucking lazy.More because they felt the need to have his chest store 3 tapes instead of just one. And like I said, it barely fucking works well enough to justify it. They probably could have gotten a much more compact and cohesive transformation without that feature.
>>7274772>another figure that will break on about a week of use because we still havent put the retards that like clear plastic and the other retards that pick weak clear plastic for clear parts on camps
>>7275132>can't type a coherent sentence>doesn't know the difference between "on" and "in">thinks clear plastic is the devilAt least your stupidity is consistent. Try being less of a hamhander, you fat retard.
>>7275144Enjoy youre Prowl melting like the last time.
>>7274772Why did they not just fucking use the money they'd spend on painting that clear plastic parts to just have separate window pieces
>>7275148Having to cast two separate pieces, as well as the extra step of assembly would cost way more than the paint. Paint is comparatively cheap to most other parts of a toy.
>>7275153>drab anime colors>a million dollarsAm I too late to get the original?
>>7275153Only time Shellformer excusable. Discussion over. NEXT!
>>7275053Seibertron has some, but you're likely too much a spazz to give them a visit.
>>7275153The original colours are better
>>7275093The Last Knight flopped so hard that they changed a lot of the Bumblebee movie to distance themselves from the Bay movies. It killed Hasbro plans for a TFCU and Paramounts deal with Huhua which woul've go with all of their moviesnot only Transformers. Half of the budget of Bumblebee was funded by Hasbro because of the loss of the Huhua contract. Hasbro also made a new contract for 5 years to have more than 50% control over the movie which makes sense with the drastical design change. And the film has a big chance to be good. 7/10 or 8/10 as I heard from some critics already. Will find out this weekend when embargo lifts.
The fan screenings of Bumblebee started in London 15 minutes agog. In 2 hours we'll find out about this movie.The film is 1 hour and 45 minutes without the credits. Makes it the shortest Transformers movie. Good choice.
>>7275163A year and a half later
>>7275163God I wish this was the end of Bay's career.
>>7275168Oh nonononononononoBay on suicide watch
>>7275036>>7275168Who the fuck thought this character was a good idea?
>>7275173I know right. Bay should stick with his action movies.The Optimus Prime film(if Bee is a success) will be an origin story(tied with an Earth side mission set by Bee movie). Paramount has a new director,a known scifi director which worked on no earth/cgi surfaces and characters. Probably J.J.Arbrams. They are rebooting the timeline if Bee is a success.
>>7275163That's good to hear. I might actually watch it after all.
>even Camaro Bee can look better than Bay'sHow can Bay even live?No idea if this shot is in the final film. Could be deleted scene. 2 or 3 hours to find out.
>>7275178The funny part is he's barely in the movie.
>>7275181>Probably J.J.Arbrams.Yeah, that makes it sound like it will be worse already. Don't throw Memejew Al Penisnose around like he was ever a good director.
>>7275183And even if Bee is a camaro in the end. He won't look like Bay's. This is a homage to the old era and the beginning of anew one. It leads in a new continuity. Btw Travis Knight isn't directing GotG3,he stated that he will return at Laika to make animated films but he isn't done with Paramount(he most likely will return for the Bee sequel if the film is a success since Knight is a fan of Bee since childhood and believes Megatron G1 design is one of the greatest designs ever). Only good stuff in the future. And all of this happened because we let Bay out.
>>7275189Well,there were other directors proposed:>Christopher Nolan>Joseph Kosinki>James Gunn(?)>Bryan Singer(?)>Joss Whedon>Del ToroBut J.J. is the most likely one only if they do get Nolan...
>>7275196>NolanYou do know Nolan is not that kind of director and only accepted to do Batman to finance his personal projects, right?
>>7275181Please for the love of god don't let the guy who killed both Star Trek AND Star Wars near Transformers
>>7275203>>7275189>Tfw JJ could fuckup Prime's origin story more than Bay didIs this even possible? Could JJ do a worse TF movie than Bay? I mean,JJ is the one who told Bay that hes the only one who can do TF movies but...
>>7275201He was just proposed. It doesn't mean that he will direct the film but it would have been interesting if he did want to.J.J. is likely,we will find out if the Prime film is greenlit only after Bee's box office numbers.Good word of mouth is Bee's last chance thats why we get so many advanced screenings including the one on 8th in US and Canada.
The more I see the more it pisses me off! Why couldn't they just make this a straight up TRANSFORMERS movie? I love everything I'm seeing from this movie EXCEPT BUMBLEBEE! I want to get into this along with all the other guys that grew up with G1 but I just can't because I despise Bumblebee. They totally alienated me by making this a fucking movie about Bumblebee. They even got Soundwave's voice right, something so incredibly difficult that the Bay movies just couldn't handle it (extreme sarcasm).This is the worst! It's depressing the shit out of me. After 5 movies they finally get the robot designs & the G1 feel right but they made it a cute baby movie for little girls. Why can't they just make a serious TRANSFORMERS movie & cut out all this cute preschool baby bullshit? I can't even go see this because I want to fast forward through all the scenes with Bumblebee & Charlie & just watch the good stuff.I just don't want women in Transformers,Transformers is only for men. That's it.
>It's automatically good because Bay didn't direct it>it's new or different in any way just because they threw some shitty half baked faux G1 designs at the beginning for a few minutesJesus they really got you retards hook line and sinker.
You guys get any Botbots yet?
>>7275220T.BayfagKnightchads where you at?
>>7275220Well, no terrible “jokes” at least given the PG rating.
>>7275227PG-13 rating for intense action and scifi sequences. Not for crude humour like the last 5 films. This film is more childfriendly with cool action. Its the best Transformers film.
Kylo ren kills his dad Han solo in the Bumblebee movie.
>>7275220It's not automatically good, but it has the potential to be good without him involved.
>>7275232Is that before or after the part where Snape kills Dumbledore?
>>7275153Nemesis is my color of choice, but I’d go for this big boy, too.
>>7275243After Optimus kills Shatter. Lel
>>7275230As far as the rating tells us, its possibly the same as Bay bit without “I am directly underneath the enemy scrotum!” or “Stop lubricating the man, Bumblebee.”So it can still be stupid, but not as cringingly bad.
>>7275254Not sure why they made Dropkick her son. She only mentions this when she dies.
>yfw Windblade is in Bumblebee as a non-speaking Autobot listening to Optimus for one scene
>>7275257Dropkick is actually her boyfriend and they even fugg while Shockwave watches...wtf was wrong with Kinght? Idk he was into that and he even gave ass and boobs to Arcee....
>>7275259Damn I wish. She will be pushed by Hasbro in the future films in the reboot. From what I heard it was Travis Knight who pushed Arcee to be in the movie instead of Windblade. He doesn't like the character.
>>7275269Then how do you explain that lesbian scene where arcee licks windblade
>>7275273Blame Brian Goldner for that. They had control over this film.
>>7275269You know, I actually liked how IDW made each Transformers gimmick its own colony planet. I’d actually like to see that used again, especially since Windblade’s own people’s gimmick (low Energon resources, so kind of medieval Cybertronians who use physical melee weapons, the VIPs have energy weapons, and nobody wastes energy on guns) was kind of brushed off and ignored.
>swindler and roadhandler's gun mode is roadhandler sucking swindler off
>>7275181>Probably J.J.Arbrams.so it'll be a boring safe remake that adds nothing new but shits on the lore at the same time.no thanks.
>>7275233Oh fuck, I knew a Lorenzo Dude wouldn't stop screaming to God after gibbering to himself for hours on end. Really explains a lot there.
>>7275321>never made a decent movieI mean, I hear Ep7 as okay compared to the Lucas prequels, but the Trek time travel "erase prior canon" reboot films were 100% trash. Then again he didn't have retarded fuckfaces Orci & Kurtzman actually write Ep7 so that helped.
>>7275276>people will deny that Hasbro actively pushes SJW stuff despite all evidence
So the Micromasters are pretty much the shittiest part of this line. Their articulation is spotty, only some of their modes are good, they're prone to falling apart, and most of the weapon modes are shit. The only good one is the jet set.I wish they'd just given us two packs of Targetmasters because even without full articulation they're way more fun.
>>7275183Finished CGI is too expensive to risk being a deleted scene.
>>7275191>Knight is a fan of Bee since childhood and believes Megatron G1 design is one of the greatest designs everWhy? Its the blandest fucking Megatron ever. even out of the big 80's villains he's one of the most dull.
>>7275331>I mean, I hear Ep7 as okay compared to the Lucas prequelsSaying the prequels are bad is a meme. Ep 7 is shit.
>>7275499I dunno man, Masterpiece Megatron is pretty sexy.
>>7275540Am I the only one who prefers mp-5 over mp-36?
>>7275153Those colors suck. The original looks so much better.
>>7275552>>7275553Even if you like the design better for whatever reason, MP-5 is a terrible figure. So no.
>>7274616Ironically the whole point of me switching from Classics to MP was not having to keep rebuying new versions of characters and just get a single definitive version. I've been collecting forever, so trying to get good versions of G1 characters had been a pain. To use your Hot Rod example; back when RiD came out, I got Super Sideburn to be my new "hot Rod". Then Armada came out, with Hot Shot's redeco, and he became Hot rod. THEN Energon had a Rodimus! Oh but then Cybertron came out with a Hot Shot redeco that looked like Hot rod. Then finally Classics gave me an actual, designed from the start Hot Rod..that wasn't that good. And then alternators had a Hot Rod, which scaled with MP-01 so I had to have it because MP-01 was the definitive Transformer at the time. And then we actually got a real MP Rodimus/Hot rod..and then a Hot Rod.So basically I can't win.
>>7275552MP36 is just nicer as a toy and a robot. Those perfect blocky arms and legs, those proportions. Really shows the engineering brainpower of Takara.Nicer head too.
>>7275153Not really interested. Got the Korean one loose but as new and with all its accesories for 16 bucks shipped three years ago.
>>7275441But Back To The Future...
>>7275508Nothing good is in the prequels. 7 is just a retread. 8 is still the worst, and the first half of Return drags on too long.
>>7275580>16 bucks for Big BoiIs it official or a KO? Also, where did you find it?
>>7275499get fucked you homo, are you going to tell me Skeletor or the Shredder were more aesthetically pleasing?
>>7275679Sonokong version, oficial Takara licensed product for the Korean market. Found on ebay, the guy had a good buch, all complete (missiles, card, instructions) but loose. Seems like they were all new but he didn't have enough space on his warehouse to store every box, so he just keep them unboxed and protected in sealed plastic bags.
Can anyone with a Siege Sideswipe take a comparison shot of him with MP Prowl? I need to see how they look together.
>>7275695Thanks, anon. You got real lucky if it ain't a KO. Can't find anything for under $50.
>>7275722Korean version of old Takara toys used to be found for really cheap some years ago. Now they're ridiculously expensive too.
>>7275718Um... he'll come up short a little.
>>7275733It may also be due to the demand for a Big Convoy now that the Encore is coming. People who hate the Encore may be looking for another version and boom, prices raise.
>>7275759I'm gonna fucking swap Fred Alert's gun with Sideswipe's so he can have a white gun.
>>7276567Actually wrong but nice effort.
>>7276636I just stole it to see what reactions are, though the battle damaged head is close to the movie version if not for the battle damaged look
Got this G2 Breakdown in. Its kind of depressing comparing the older deluxes to modern deluxes and seeing the drastic drop in complexity. If the G2 style generations Jazz with picking up?
>>7276643What's the 2019 release called? Is it available for preorder?
>>7276658Anon have you been living under a rock the past week or so?
Let's just finish this one off.
>>7276650For all its complexity, the Classics Lambo mode has awful proportions.
After we finish this thread migrate to:>>7276994>>7276994>>7276994
Reminder to check "hide stub"
Whew, that was quick
>>7277106we did it reddit
>>7277106How 'bout that, mods really do notice when the shitposter gets up to his usual tricks. Shame they don't permab& him though, at least from /toy/.
What would happen if Hasbro released recolored Unicron Trilogy Minicons in Siege packaging as store exclusives? I'm thinking just guys who had a 3rd weapon mode, like Prowl here, or the combiner teams, like Requiem Blaster.
>>7277137Unicron Trilogy molds are rekt from overuse.
>>7277137As someone who has within the past 2 years bought a bunch of minicons, they don't age particularly well.
which siege micromaster team is the best one?
>>7275178i have the Deluxe one, its ok. I've seen that RC one at Ross for cheap, and i am tempted.
>>7277141>>7277144Same question, but instead its blindbagged Arms Microns
>>7277186I only have a few, but the quality/articulation on them goes up and down.It's kind of a shame to see the small robots that turn into weapons gimmick falling into the same potholes of design/engineering.
>>7277169Tanks are best as a gun. Jets as Minicons. Race cars as vehicles, but only because one is a fucking silver Delorean.
>>7277194I'm fishing for an excuse for Hasbro/Takara to re-release Arms Micons in the US. I'm not paying $10+ for a capsule machine toy, and I'm hoping the guy who thought light up weapons for Prime were a good idea and these were bad got canned.
>>7277202Its not a delorean thoIt looks like a generic old shitbox now
>>7277232So a delorean then
Moonracer on sale in HLJ, how good is she?
>>7277251Identical to the US version.
>>7277256I don't own moonracer, i was asking how good was the figure.
>>7277258>>7277251>backpack heavy>basically stretches out for all her modesits the best you'll get of her but it could be better
>>7277263If it doesn't affect balance or articulation i don't care.
>>7277265Only when you lean her back, but her big feet can angle enough to compensate her back-heavyness.I enjoy owning her, though yeah I wish her backpack were able to fold a little flatter.
>>7277251She looks like shit anon. Wait for Siege Chromia
>>7277270Well, a review pointed out you can fold it down into a skirt for balance.also that kibble on the feet must stabilize her well enough to stand on one foot
>>7277272But anon, i already plan on getting a chromia.
Wasn't Moonracer the youngest of the G1 fembots?just pretend it's a randoseru lmao
>>7277272>Wait for Siege Chromia
>>7277276you must give us a schoolgirl moonracer now anon.
>>7277272>Wait for Siege ChromiaWhy would he want to do that?
>>7277251Would it require a voyager scale to get a good girl bot?
>>7277281Because it looks good anon
>>7277286what is that, a chromia for ants?
>>7277286I already have>>7277275pic related though and don't feel I need a replacement for her.
>>7277281>>7277286Didn't mean to post a picture for ants.
>>7277279im busy now fren>>7277285I think you'd have to make a new size class and hire Jizaitoys for it.>>7277290Just use this thread, you autists. Report forum screencaps if you're too retarded to ignore them.
>>7277299That's the shitposter making his new thread again anon, just ignore him until we make the real next thread.
>>7277310What's even wrong with that thread?
that was fast.should i make a new one now or we should wait more?
>>7277312Nothing, these anons just don't like links for whatever reason.
>>7277312You know damn well. So do the janitors.Now watch him feign innocence/ignorance.
>>7277320Well excuse us for having standards, madam.
>>7277321I think that's him.
>>7277323Lack of standards you mean. An orderly OP makes this place more welcoming & easier to find stuff without the same questions being repeated over & over again.New Thread:>>7277324>>7277324>>7277324
>>7277327I know it is, he's really bad at hiding himself.
>>7277299I just want girl bots that are unique and good and not hindered by a gimmick.
>>7277251Pretty good, with the same Combiner problems where there’s a backpack since nothing can fold internally due to Combiner Port being there.
>>7277332in that case why are you still giving him you's
>>7277335So get Nightbird and Legends Blackarachnia.
>>7277340Nobody cares if there's links or not, you've tried hiding behind that paper-thin excuse for months. Everyone knows it's you.
>>7277346I'm not him.And the links do nothing when people here are still using ebay unironically.
>>7277346don't give him you's.just report him.
>>7277349Have the mods wisened up enough to stop warning people from reporting spam? >>7277348>And the links do nothingThen who cares
>>7277353You do, apparently.
>>7277353seems like they have when they delete his threads on sight rather than leave them hanging around.
>>7277353>Have the mods wisened up enough to stop warning people from reporting spam?After everything that happened today, I'm sure the mods know to take reports seriously.
>>7277357>>7277359It's a good sign, at the very least. I'm legitimately surprised he keeps making threads though, even minutes after his other is deleted. Ballsy, I'll give him that. Maybe he's just ban-evading?
>>7277369I wonder what he gets out of it? It can't just be (you)s, not after this long. That'd be a genuine mental disorder, if that's this was.
>>7277375he just hates the general.
>>7277343Something new and not a remold.
>>7277398So get that triple changer when she gets a fig. Or Slash. Get Slash.
>>7277438I second the suggestion on Slash, she's great.
