Hopes/wishes for Toyfair reveals next month?old >>7325921
did the other get deleted or something
>>7329964studio series, that's really it
>>7329972It was a bait thread, as was obvious by 90% of it's content.
>>7329976the bayposting right.good riddance
Pointblank, Sureshot and Crosshairs have to be close, but still hoping for the Seacons.
>>7329964SS ROTF Soundwave.
>>7329964Omega Supreme is pretty likely. I hope we see the Optimus Magnus remold.>>7329983I expect them to be the 2021 titan.
>>7329981The people defending bumblebee wasn’t any better. I wish both sides would get banned & deleted. Alas the mods are hypocrites who allow shills to run rampant in this general but if some challenges the bumblebee shills or shills for any other side they get banned & not the shills flooding the general.
>>7329989>Omega SupremeCurious about how they'll integrate the Micromaster base design to Omegas base mode, or if it is just Countdown without any changes on to Omega.
>>7329993The bayshills should go first, BB never had agressive shitposters until that thread.then should the classic shills.
>>7329964SS blitzwing, that's all I need and I'll be satisfied
>>7329999I agree they should go first but the bumblebee shills have been just as annoying by sometimes taking up half the bump limit to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with them. I thought there was only one classic fag who is also archers number 1 fan. I don’t care if he goes because he’s died down with the shitposting compared to the other 2 above.
>>7329964Siege Bumblebee seems to be a given to me based on the IDW artwork. There's supposedly 51 figures being released in Siege total this year, in all class sizes, etc, and only around 40 or so have been revealed.
>>7330013I'm just wondering if he'll have yellow shoulders or black shoulders, since he's shown colored with both in the artwork.
>>7330009I think it's just because it's topical, also there's nowhere else to talk about these movies on 4chan, considering there's no movies board.But yea it would be nice if we could go back to talking about toys
>>7330016I'm pretty certain they'll also reveal yet another Windblade in this line.
>>7330009I have been in the shitshow that were december threads, and BB posting didn't take half the threads.what did take half the threads was spergs and what i hope were ironic bayfags shitting everything up.
>>7330018Shut up! I'm sick of them. We need a Cliffjumper, we're long overdue.
>>7330018Windblade has appeared in some of the artwork with other figures in the line, including leader class Optimus.
>>7330000Just a straight headswap.>>7330016Uh? interesting lack of kibble.
>>7330019I remember there was one guy who said that even five minutes of g1 pandering was enough to ruin the film.
>>7330020>Walgreens or Amazon exclusive Bumblebee painted as CliffjumperYou know it to be true. It's the only way they'll make a new Cliffjumper. Our only other option is a hope they do a SS Cliffjumper from Bumblebee.
>>7330018>>7330020Nah, thats the same headmaster mold, her curve calves and V thong are "unique".
Saw this at my Wal Mart today and it pissed me off. They are $7.86 for fuck sake and I know it had to be an adult who stole them. Kids would steam something more relevant to them.
>>7330039Why would someone need re-issued G1 figures that bad? I could see someone swiping Siege since some of the cuck MP's, and have quality like a 3P. But stealing a nostalgia figure seems retarded.
>>7329964It astounds me that this is still a better mold for Inferno.
Let’s see those bitches try to steal my energon now.
>>7330050Well that was designed to be Inferno just as the new mold was designed to be Hotspot, so it works better than pic related
>>7330052Do you think you could make a bae out of Magnus's armor?
What Decepticons do you think they'll reveal next.I think they need to reveal a new version of some icon characters. We already either have or are getting: Megatron, Shockwave, Soundwave, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Reflector, but who else is a must have character after them? I think deluxe Insecticons are way over due, and that they should rip-off the Badcube versions.
>>7330068Why give him cartoon faces? Why strip him of accessories?
>>7329964More Bad fiscal quarters
>>7330013That is some terrible artArtist's Alley Tier Con trashIDW continuing the tradition
>>7330063>I think deluxe Insecticons are way over dueYeah we need Venom and Rans..oh you meant deluxe as class size? no can do man, Warden said they're following G1 cartoon botmode and scale, thats why Ironhide is a tall deluxe and Shocwave a small Leader.
>>7330063I'd like to see new renditions of the omnibots, I think they had relatively unique transformation schemes and cool weapons gimmicks.
>>7330013Glad to see IDW still hiring wonderful, talented "artists."
>>7329993>People enjoying something must be shillsHow fucking autistic and mentally broken do you have to be where you get to this point? The point where you see people that genuinely enjoy something and you automatically assume they're a paid shill. How joyless and bleak is your life, anon?
Immortal ironclad beetle predacon when?
>>7330013Did they hired that filtered highbrow guy?
I hope we see Siege Jetfire. Missed out on the last Generations figure.
>>7330082I see you are a man of taste. I've been eyeing the omnibots on eBay, I want camshaft because he's an RX-7.
>>7329964I'm really considering getting Inferno just to turn him into Artfire. I'd really like to have a deluxe scale-ish version of him and I'm never gonna get that exclusive one.
>>7330078They're around Reflector's size and he's getting a deluxe, so they should get one too.
>>7330096>deluxe scale-ishBoth are tall voyagers, I like the face on the new inferno, makes him look different, the exclusive has the same head than universe inferno.
>>7330089>Missed out on the last Generations figure.I love it but it is not that great, very solid but, flimsy feeling because hollow
>>7330106I guess you didn't saw the scale chart, their heads clearly hit the red scout/legends line, Reflector is 2 or 3 heads taller.
>>7330116>Wings and horns are way above the lineYeah I did. And I'm willing to bet Siege Bumblebee will be deluxe also. That chart's also bullshit for scale. There's scenes in the G1 series where the Insecticons are pretty big next to Soundwave.
>>7330061>baeWhat a weird request. Still not the strangest fetish.
>>7329964>Hopes/wishes for Toyfair reveals next month?I just want to see Springer, WheelJack, Impactor, Barricade, mirage, ratchet revealed. As far as new things, I want sunstreaker and Arcee. Wishful thinking tier, Star SaberWill Siege only run for 3-4 waves like PotP? Or is the 51 count only for the toys being released specifically in 2019
>>7330125Athiugh if you meant ‘base’ mode, then you can make a pretty decent one. The gaps make the walls look a little like fences. Maybe better as a Dinobot pen. This is all just the stuff that comes out of his box.
>>7330121Siege Optimus, Ironhide, Sideswipe, Hound, Megatron, Shockwave, Soundwave and the Seekers follow that scale man, just put your figures side by side or watch reviews.
>>7330146But Shrapnel is shown as deluxe scale in the cartoons. He goes up to Blitzwing's chest, and Kup is shown as very tiny compared to him and Blitzwing.
>>7330030And that's true
>>7330157He goes up to the shoulders of the coneheads.
>>7330111Sorry, I was using scale and size class differently. I just mean in scale with deluxes. So yeah, a voyager.
>>7330179Well, yeah, that's the whole reason Prime and Ultra Magnus are scaled the way they are, etc. If you go by the scale of Sunbow, the Insecticons are deluxe size. If Shrapnel's always large next to Blitzwing and up to his chest, then he's for sure deluxe. And even if you were to go by the scale of the vintage toys, they're pretty large comparatively to other G1 toys.
>>7330157They're not even on the same plane, by that pic Skrapnell is as tall as Blitzwing as hes behind and the camera is at an angle.
I was visiting my parents the other day and when i looked in my old closet, i came across this, near mint condition (from the looks of it), sealed in the box. i completely forgot I still had it. is it worth anything at this point? This was like back in 2009. I dont really collect toys anymore and I pretty much have no sentimental attachments for it anymore.
>>7330131Well, Siege is the first part of a three part series, just like Combiner Wars, Titans Return, and Power of the Primes was a three part series, with each part running across a single year. Siege is part 1 in what's being call the War for Cybertron series, with the basis of Siege being their last day on Cybertron before heading to earth like in the cartoon, and is running for 4 waves most likely, with 51 figures total given on the basis of a Hasbro website with 51 slots for figures in the line for 2019. And they've only revealed around 40 figures. We know things like a Generation 2 repaint of Megatron is happening again as an online exclusive, but has not been revealed yet. We can expect about roughly ten more figures that have not been leaked or revealed yet, and I'd guess they would be characters from the 1984 and '85 lines. I'm expecting a bunch more Autobots since there weren't many more big Decepticons in 1984. Probably a Bumblebee in there on the basis of recent art from IDW.
>>7330020 I'm down the middle about cliffjumper, he's cool, but he just doesn't make the cut.
>>7330013It looks like they ran it through deep dream or some shit
>>7330200I will never understand why one would post such a question here. Your search sold listings on ebay and have your answer.
any good toys on this lot? i kinda want bludgeon
>>7330225Only as good as you want them. I love the Scopinok and Bludgeon RiD molds, the rest I'm indifferent about.
I ran across titan return voyager optimus and I didn't he knew this was a thing mostly because of the leader class version, is the voyager one worth it?
>>7330225Stormshot is good. Knock-Out and TF:P Soundwave are pretty meh.
>>7330234He's really average as far as voyagers go.
>>7330194There's no shame in admitting you were mistaken. Kup is a Deluxe yet, Shrapnel is huge when he hits Blitzwing, and Kup is shown as very small in the scene compared to Blitzwing's tank mode, yet Kup and Hotrod are around the same height in the cartoon, with Hotrod being just a little bigger, meaning Shrapnel must be around the same height, and there's episodes where they're like up to chest level of the Seekers.The point is, that chart is wrong.
>>7330225Soundwave Scorponok and Bludgeon are pretty good bordering on great. The white plane whoever is nice too. And Thermador.
>>7330225Most of them, honestly.The only duds there are Starscream, Twinferno, and Windblade.
>>7330221>I will never understand why one would post such a question herebecause you can never trust ebay prices.its fine though, i got my answer already. gotta remind myself that 4chan is fucking useless.
>>7330241the cartoon always have animation errorthat's why we use the chart
>>7330252Oh fuck off with that. You don't want "Ebay prices"? Are you high?
>>7330200no, in fact it's not worth anything more than 5 bucks.you should sell it to me, i'll pay you 10 bucks for it.
>>7330254It's not animation error. They're shown that way consistently. They're often up to the chest of Blitzwing and the Seekers. They've also been canon leader class on multiple occasions, including in Transformers Devastation.
There will never be a chug Arcee figure better than this one.
>>7330271FT rogue is a better Arcee and the MMC is a better playable CHUG arcee, done by the guy who did Classics Bumblebee,Mirage and Hound even.
>>7330252I want you to stop and think about what you're asking for a minute. You're asking people here on /toy/ what the going price for your Universe Soundwave is, yes? What makes you think that any of us WOULDN'T look up eBay prices to tell you the answer?It's an older toy that isn't on TFSource or Mandrake anymore. eBay is the standard you set your prices to when it's not in stock anywhere else. There's no need to be a dick when you're the one that's not exercising common sense, anon.
>>7330273>FT rogue is a better Arceemasterpiece is shit though. You may as well be saying aids is better than cancer. >MMC is a better playable CHUG arceeDude, she's Masterpiece also. What is this shit taste?
>>7330279Also this one is shit too
>>7330279Just pretend Arcee is some tall amazonian or something nerd.
>>7330271I know I'll be blown the fuck out for saying this, but the Titan's Return Arcee I think is a more fun figure. Not more accurate or anything, but a more fun toy than the generations mold.
>>7330283If only those didn't had such an awful face.
>>7330279Anon just because you don’t like a scale it doesn’t mean the figure itself is shit. Also can you at least try and give us actual reasons as to why there shit? If you don’t own them how do you know there shit?
>>7330290TR Blurr is probably one of the best deluxes ever, so thats just natural.>t. collecting since the first Deluxe wave
>>7330290It's a good mold, and I liked it on other figures, but it's a man body being used for a woman. It's fitting though since it's IDW Arcee.
>>7330308>>7330313You didn't learn your lesson the first time you retard?
>>7330302>doesn’t mean the figure itself is shit.Rouge has arms like toothpicks for one. PS-04 Azalea is also shit for it's interchangeable hands gimmick and for being MP.>actual reasons as to why there shit?Because Masterpiece is shit and a dead format, with overly large figures, decreasing details, poor design, overly complicated transformations, decreasing QC, and escalating prices souring into the $300 range. Being designed for MP automatically makes any figure shit.>If you don’t own them how do you know there shit?>How do you know it's shit if you haven't tried it? I'm just shitting on your plate, and it's clearly shit, but how do you know?
>>7330316We're different anons, butt for brains. You act like IDW hasn't pissed all over the franchise.
>>7329976It really wasn’t: https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/thread/7329147/I’d say it was actually below average(these days at least) in terms of amount of shitposting and trolling. Mods just got trigger-happy.
>>7330308I'd like ALL the Seekers. in one go.
>>7330216I was thinking it looks more like they were constructed out of tin-foil. A bit like those metal model-kits, only if you crumpled then reflattened the metal they’re folded out of.
>>7330068>>7330074This deco made me buy the figure. Fuck bland toonshit. I hope they do mp44 in a + version.
>>7330061I got u baeI yoinked a bunch of bae-modes off the tfw2005 review thread.
I'd like to see how Siege Ratchet looks, and I hope they'll at least say Studio Hound is happening. Those are my big hopes.Outside of that I'm just kind of waiting and seeing what happens. I'm curious if we'll see any WFC combiners. Like a Cybertronian Bruticus.
>>7330397I think this one’s a chair.
>>7330403I really just need to remove the thigh weathering. That really looks the worst about him. Outside of that its fine.
>>7330397Oh, so that’s what Paddox turns into! (Or possibly one of several things he turn into, seeing as he’s the combined form of half a dozen or so Ammonites)
>>7330390Some other highlights from that thread:
>>7330426Feeling a bit unbalanced.
>>7330429>>7330426What always bugged me about white-prime-in-armor is how UM has a mouth while White Prime has a faceplate.
>>7330397That's so CUTE. I love it.
>>7330433You thought I was White-Prime,but it was me! Minimus!
>>7330442That's pretty cute but I wish the quality of the work was better.
>>7330433ITs so weird, because otherwise everything about Magnus is just a bigger, bulkier version of the convoy robot mode. The shoulderstacks, the chest windows, the antennae, even the"belt" looks similar. But then it just has a face for no reason.
>>7330039Walmart employees dont give a shit. They don't get paid enough and WalMart can afford to lose products to theft. It's sucks. Target seems to still be okay. I see swaps but not blatant theft like these.
>>7330000From the bowels of /co/ she has come to divide you! Also meta-stuff.
>>7330000Don't worry, anon those digits won't go unchecked
>>7330205>with each part running across a single year.Combiner Wars and Titans Return both ran for more than a year, Titans return even had two Titan class releases
>>7330323>shit for it's interchangeable hands gimmickthat's a great gimmick you shit eater
>>7330479(citation needed)>Combiner Wars is a 2015-2016 multimedia branding used by Hasbro, encompassing Transformers toys, comics, and other merchandise. As the name suggests, it focuses on combiners, specifically the Scramble City-style combiner teams from Generation 1.https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Combiner_Wars_(franchise)2015>Introduced in mid-2016, Titans Return (initially touted under the early working name Titan Wars) features its own new line-wide gimmick: all Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader Class figures include a Headmaster-style Titan Master partner, all of which are completely interchangeable.https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Titans_Return_(toyline)2016>Power of the Primes is a 2017-2018 multimedia branding used by Hasbro, expected to encompass Transformers toys, comics, and other merchandise. Capping off the Prime Wars Trilogy, Power of the Primes follows the Combiner Wars and Titans Return sublines and, unlike its predecessors, doesn't spotlight any one particular gimmick, instead featuring a plethora of reverse-compatible play features based off the previous two installments of the toyline, while highlighting Primes featured across the Transformers mythos.https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Power_of_the_Primes_(franchise)2017These were one year lines that were spaced out at odd times, such as the end of 2017 for POTP's so the line could hit in time for Christmas.
>>7330013WTF are IDW doing not putting Kei Zama on everything Transformers.
Who wore it better?
>>7330413Aww shit, You could make a Thunderclash out of this
>>7330433Kind of like how Star Saber's inner bot has a visor while the outer bot has normal eyes
>>7330556I love her lines but she's a bad inker, on some of her busier pages it can be a real clusterfuck.
>>7330557Leader class Optimus Prime?
>>7330556they want someone fast, cheap and reliable.that's why ramondelli had more inputs than pretty much every other tf artists in idw.
>>7330225drift is pretty fun, not sure whats up with that paint though
>>7330013>>7330016>>7330018from the looks of it, his transformation seems to be that his vehicle's top slides over his hood. You can see his signature cybertronian grill sticking out in some shots.Judging from that, and how his legs have yellow on them, and this picture, it seems like his legs and arms join to make his fins, probably with fold out panels, while his torso is the middle section folded up (siege loves folding)the lack of any wheels reinforces this.
>>7330271I dunno, I still don't get why NO ONE bothers making her car truck be part of her legs. It would seriously reduce backpack issues.we either get a half-good alt mode, a giant backpack, or both.I'd rather take a slightly less sexy arcee with an alt mode that looks like an actual car than a sexy arcee who's alt mode is her legs clearly sticking out on the sides.
>>7330557Why is Shockwave so damn small?
excuse me, which way to the diaclone general?serious question about flywheels, on mine its impossible to have the large gun on the center peg hole without stress marks (which it now has) and even then if i brute force it the barrel is stuck pointing slightly downwards, the "crotch" part of flywheels sits too closewhere did I fuck up, having the tank being a slight mess solves the problem but I want a clean tank with a proper tank cannon
>>7330657its the line, like the ss line they're all in scale, as a result leaders (who have an evolution gimmick) make fine voyagers but trying to be leaders means they end up being shorter since magnus while big isn't a giant compared to manlet prime
>>7330525CW had 6 waves, more than 12 months worth of content, TFW even lists it was 2014-2016TR was also definitely longer than a year (12 months) If it started early 2016 and ended half way into 2017 that's still longer than a yearPotP was the odd one out because it was only one year (12 months) long While it's hard to argue it since HASBRO products have no solid releases dates TR and CW lasted longer than 12 months each
>>7330657more parts mean smaller.Ultra Magnus is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than the last ultra magnusbut weighs more.which is fine to me. I've really been feeling that the size difference between deluxe, voyager, and leader was too big these days
>>7330459holy shit kill it.
>>7330657So he can be in scale with Megatron, but they're counting armor toward what makes something a Leaderclass, rather than just size.
>>7330657>I’m not small! I’m leader class! I command a higher price point than even Lord Megatron! STOP CALLING ME A BOTLET!
Someone replicated the Toilet troop group shot art.

>>7330433>What always bugged me about white-prime-in-armor is how UM has a mouth while White Prime has a faceplate.that has ALWAYS bugged me
>>7330683Any chance they'll release a Voyager version without the accessories?>tfw still hoping for an Energon Sixshot repaint
>>7330700>text to speechJesus fuck... well, at least now we know for sure she's not a combiner bot.
>>7330761its odd, tonton used to just do silent videos, now they use txt to speech, guess the increase in views made them consider doing some talking but weren't confident in their own voice
So you guys just want re-releases of old toys you could probably get on ebay anyway? What's the purpose? They are too expensive on ebay now?
>>7330767>So you guys just want re-releases of old toys you could probably get on ebay anyway?Not really no.
>>7330683Shockwave prepares to Consume Time Itself, all so he can finally get THOSE BITCHES!
>>7330772Why did I even bother buying CB Shockwave
>>7330773we told you not to lel
Apparently America is getting Big Powered under Generations Selects. Same price as Takara's version and since Hasbro and Takara make the exact same figures now, there is really no reason to change your pre-order. It's going to be the same toy just in a different box.
>>7330786nice fanfiction.net but it could use some ranch sauce
>>7330786I liked super robot Brave-style look, but Dai Atlas' hollow legs make me wary.And I don't have Twintwist/Topspin toy, is it a good mold?

>>7330772MOTHERFUCKING VAJRA SHOCKWAVE.To be honest I didn't really want him...but now that he can be Asura'd, he's a must-buy.
>>7330662Anon he weighs like 5 grams more. That’s next to nothing. The only thing thing this has over ther CW one is the inner bot
>>7330872>The only thing thing this has over ther CW one is the inner botAnd now a <$20 KO of PE Core Magnus is coming out.
>>7330873I'm pretty sure that's an OSKO
>>7330880correct saw it on fb not long ago
>>7330880>>7330881It's not, what would be the point of making it an OSKO of an addon.
>>7330872>>7330873At this point siege Magnus is just gonna be the better deal. CW Magnus is pretty cool with both the upgrade sets. but that'll seriously run you like 200$ (assuming you're even able to find a copy of the X2 kit)
>>7330873>>7330890Eh, they're apples and oranges, each toy represents a different take on the character, CW is IDW magnus and Siege G1 magnus (both with "wrong" altmodes), so get whatever version you like best IDW or G1.
Or get both Magni, I have Kups for 3 different shelves, g1, idw wreckers and marvel.
MPM-8 Megatron and MPM-9 Jazz will be announced in Shanghai on January 26
I pity anyone that bought the original mp36 over this
>>7330995I've been thinking about getting her for a while since she goes on sale so often, but then I remember that I don't really like loudpedal that much outside of car mode, and road rage is a worse figure than him so I always end up passing
>>7331048>chrome goodness>unpainted gun barrel means less paint scrape when silencer is used>far more decorated than the originalcoulda had a chrome sword and hand held gun but this works just fine
>>7331048I really don't like how MP-36 looks, but I honestly kinda like this. If I had money to burn I'd buy him.
>>7331048MP-36 is such a blatant cartoon dork I can't help but love it. the weird proportion issues and design choices meant to make this mold as cartoon accurate as possible just aren't flattering on a toy style version.
>>7331117I think it works surprisingly well as a toy version. The only thing it really lacks is the crotch trigger.
>>7331048Still no reports of paint chipping? Really fucking tempted now he looks gorgeous.
>>7331048Why pity the people who got the better deco?
>>7331124Most of the chips on my version are on the legs, the chrome itself is basically perfect still
>>7331125Why do you prefer the bland grey when it was supposed to be metallic?
>>7331136No it wasn't.
>>7331138It certainly was, and it was clear in the better animated scenes. You want it to look matte and bland because budget constraints forced them to cut corners with the animation most of the time?
>>7331139I want it to look cohesive rather than a patchwork paintjob that looks more fitting of an oversized chinese bootleg you'd find in an easter basket.
>>7331141Sounds like you just want it to look cheap, but whatever floats your boat.
What do you guys think about my Cog combination
>>7331143>chrome = not cheap
>>7331146>Grey, matte, unpainted looking plastic = expensive
>>7331150You're the one obsessed with price, I just prefer it because it looks better.
>>7331145Could've used more guns.
>>7331048Masterpiece Browning when?
>>7331146>>7331150Both are cheap and youre a god damn idiot if you think you are paying for what it’s made of
>>7331157I would double dip on the + version and the browning version in a heartbeat. Is mp44+ gonna be likely?
>>7331146>SALUTE THE LEGEND
>>7331154You do you, but I don't find trying to match the more poorly animated moments of the show, better. It leads to a toy looking like it is severely lacking in paint (even though it's really covered in paint, paint that is easily scratched).
>>7331160I kinda want one.
>>7331168I demand to know where this is from
>>73311468/10 should've chromed the wheels for full effect.
>>7331165I didn't expect them to paint on shading.
>>7331048>tacky chrome everywhere>colors that look like it's been left out in the sun >shitty stickers on par with Titans Return and PotP>No toy gun or sword I really don't get why people like this. The toon deco is boring but its at least not stabbing your eyes.
>>7330225DriftJazzThermadorSoundeave (RID version)BludgeonScorponokAvoid Prime Soundwave, Knockout, and Twinferno. Windblade is a solid "meh."
>>7331193>tacky chrome everywhereThat's the point>sun bleach effectAccurate to the toy>stickersTampo paint actually>no swordThe only legitimate criticism.
>>7331207>saying him to avoid BH knockout>even worse, it's the bloody knockout repaint.only reason i'll see you doing that is if he lacks the weapon
>>7330786I'm starting to think news sites just trawl 4chan for ideas and report them as "rumors" and now we've got people who make shit up for the sole purpose of getting them posted.The other day I posted a rather elaborate theory about the loki TV show (which nothing is known about) and then 12 hours later, some news article popped up claiming "Rumors" have stated the very thing I was taking a blind guess about.I've seen the same thing happen with these shitty "news" posted here and then some podcasts mentions it, then people use the podcast as "proof" and by the time they're proven wrong, it's 10 months later and everyone forgot.I blame buzzfeed and CNN
>>7330839I think you're confusedthe knees aren't blocked, their limited. You have to rotate the wheels more, but that's not anywhere near locked.Also, most siege deluxes don't have rotating waists, I think. If it bothers you that much you can always leave her in tailcoat mode (which some prefer anyways)
>>7331261why does this shockwave look so fun?it only makes me want to get him more
>>7331260Say Bert Ron once reported fanfiction.net from here as frontpage news.
>>7331146I know someone who got this. The plastic is so brittle. Almost every joint breaks when you move it.
>>7330115I hope you are not talking about the CHUG one, because it was perfect.
should we believe this
>>7331271>Say Bert Ron
>>7331283I dunno but I'd by a megatron if they findout a way to hide/compress the jet mode wings.
>>7329964>Hopes/wishes for Toyfair reveals next month?Studio Series Shockwave and Siege Star Saber.>>7331283What size would MPM Jazz be? About a tall deluxe?
>>7329964>Hopes/wishes for Toyfair reveals next month?Studio Series Seekers - Either Earth or Cybertron modesCar DropkickThe newest Movie Masterpiece figureSeigeA Cybertronian mode combiner
>>7331283Slightly disappointed if true. I always thought Megatron's first movie design was his weakest. Hopefully we can get ROTF or DOTM versions down the line.
>>7330700you know, with the backpack fix, this mold could absolutely be used to make a proper pickup firestar.Looks like if you just took the roof off, rotated it to face the other way, you'd basically have a pickup.Might get me two of these.The sad thing is, I won't be able to get a moonracer or elita1 to complete the set because no one transforms like they do (while being able to pull off a feminine look)Maybe tracks will.
>>7330200Its worth varies. Toy and the boards are full of raging poorfags. If you don't want to haul it to a toy show, eBay is your best bet.I would estimate about $100 if you're selling, $200 if you were buying. Sad truth is that if you have it, it's worthless, if you need it, it costs a fortune, even if it's literally a situation where it's the same toy.
>>7331291>Siege Star Saber.would you rather have a voyager star saber that doesn't separate and have a smaller bot mode, but also get a deluxe victory leo that can power him up, or would you rather have a leader star saber who's inner bot Saber has to be somewhat miscolored to make the leader class star saber look right.
>all these folks finding Siege figuresSomeday, someday they'll show up in Sheboygan.
>>7331329that was one or the otherwhich would you rather want. A 2 part star saber, or a 2 part victory saber
>>7331340>Next TTM exclusive.
>>7331320I want a Star Saber with the same gimmick as always just so I can turn it into a brainmaster Sixshot for my own autistic amusement.
So much nicer without the "battle damage" paint
>>7331379I really wonder who had the idea of the battle damage.Hopefully future waves will obviate it since everybody is removing it.
>>7331383>I really wonder who had the idea of the battle damage
>>7331379What's that gun?
>>7331383I heard it was to pander to the chinamen Past threads have said China both loves and hates the battle damage but nobody ever posts sources for either
>>7331401People said that about the stickers too. It's bullshit.
>>7330039at my wal-mart the plastic bubbles would literally fall off at the touch. my bumblebee card had literally no rub-off or marks from where the bubble was "attached" but I was ok with that, because now I have a mint card and I can also have the toy outside of the bubble
>>7330689Why do these fucks cost the same as a deluxe TF?
>>7331335What the fuck kind of choice is this?Why would anyone want Victory Saber if it meant a gimped Star Saber?Victory Saber is terrible, like they couldn't figure out what to do with half of Victory Leo and just said fuck it, fold it into a box hand have Star Saber stand on it.
Are there any good third party Bayformer toys? Especially looking for the ones based off of scrapped concept characters.
>>7331407I have never heard this
>>7331430It was early last year if I recall.
>>7331383>Hopefully future waves will obviate itI hope not. It would make these current waves look out of place with the rest. Not that I love the battle damage, it just doesn't bother me enough to remove it.
>>7331379I can't get every last bit out of the recesses on the blue parts, but I think I'm okay with getting rid of this much.
>>7331445Damn that looks so much better
>>7331445good work anon. I'm going to resist the urge to pick up any siege stuff, it might be a few years but I'll be very surprised if we don't ever get non battle damaged versions of these molds. Maybe like a Premium giftset like we got with CW Magnus and the T30 Springer, Kup, Arcee, and Blur. It could happen.
>>7331420You get 5 for ten bucks which is half the price of a deluxe.
>>7331379I feel like the lower legs could do with some silver on the vents to help break up the figure’s expanse of white.That’s what most annoys me about the battle damage, that they used the paint and decals budget on that instead of improving the overall paint-scheme/colors of the figure.
>>7331426Unique toys has a great Lockdown and last Knight Optimus. Not sure about any scrapped concepts made by third party. May want to check out /3pg/
this p much confirms that the chrome and decals ruined it.
does BBTS usually take so fucking long for $30 worth of transformers, it shipped on the 7th and it's still not here
I found a crack on my Fortress Maximus, it may have been there since day 1 for all I know-- one of the translucent halves to the city mode tower has a broken spot, but it's barely noticable considering how gigantic it is. Mostly since it ends up obscured in every mode.
>>7331499Depends in what shipping you paid for. The flat rate shipping usually takes a while anon. That's why I save up a few months worth of purchases in my Pile of Loot and ship them all at once. I'll pay for a faster shipping option but it's usually much cheaper than shipping the individually at the cheapest option.
>>7331504that sounds like a better idea, I'll take advantage of that next time
>>7331507>the one that's literal slapped on armor has the more covered armsPoor CW Minimus.
>>7330039$8 is too fucking much. You're stupid if you're willing to pay the nostalgia tax.
>>7331516Why's it too much?
>>7331426>good>BayformerSorry those two don't make sense together.
How have we not gotten a studio series concept Camaro Bee yet? Not even an announcement.
>>7331517Because you're paying for the nostalgia factor. The figures are way too small to be priced anywhere near the Scout class price point not to mention that their transformation and articulation for the price is actually worse than the shitty $10 cyberverse figures.
>>7331517Transformers in general are getting too fucking expensive. Target has the Seige deluxe figured set at $20 now. I was already having a hard time justifying paying $17 for some of the shitty CW and TR deluxe figures.
>>7330700Chromia seems to have weird history of remolds. First one was a modified Prime toy and this one removes the combination ability her teammates have which also giving extensive mechanical detailing.
>>7331551>also giving extensive mechanical detailing.Isn't it also like, none of it is actually using any of the parts from the other figure? Isn't it all new parts just the same transformation?
>>7331551It's not really a remold in this case, just a "reuse all the engineering" style like Energon Starscream or Potpie Hun-Gurrr.
>>7331168That looks neat but I wouldn't pay 600$ for it if it ever happened.TFE should try doing that.>>7331535Chevy won't license out a vehicle likeness for a car they don't actually sell.
>>7331570>Chevy won't license out a vehicle likeness for a car they don't actually sell.But they don't sell clunker camaro anymore.
>>7331576They did at one point, though. Point is there's probably weird issues with trying to license a car that didn't actually go to market.
>>7331580Did the Corvette Sideswipe was based on go into production?
What a big fancy boy. I love him.
>>7331588>nostalgia flashback tingling
>>7331570You sure about that?
>>7331599Does he have the guns too? I see what look like pistols on his back.
Does thrilling 30 arcee have a molded ass?
>>7331570They licensed it for the masterpiece figure that came out last year, at least.
>>7331611I'm pretty sure they used the production version for the MPM
>>7331606>>7331607It pretty much does have a big ass. You don't really realize how much of an ass she has unless you remove the backpack, though, since it hides it well.
>>7331609>Swords>guns>not a Flintstone carFinally, Sideswipe gets a good figure.
>>7331616I'd be fine with that too
>tfw I got siege prime on amazon for 20 dollars and it's almost at 60 now
>>7331622Ugly backpack, though. Most of the car folds up on the back.
>>7331589> bigseige leader class are manlets
>>7331625Walmart is resetting toys this week. Since I work there I get a discount so I'm holding out for that. I did get seige megatron for retail on Amazon though.
>>7331673Speaking of, I went by and they didn't have a spot at all for TFs. I asked and the lady said it wasn't even in their computers.
>>7331689>beLIEving a wage slaveLOL. She probably didn't even know how the mouse works.
>>7331692This. I will see what I find when I go in I the morning. I will look up the new mods dropping. It will show me everything going out.
>>7331692>mouse>on a touchscreen device
>>7330873Have they knocked off the Ginrai colors already? I would totally get that for mine, but the PE price was more than I could justify given that I'd have him in Super/God mode 90% of the time.
>>7331499Standard $4 shipping is basically taping your stuff on a turtle and hoping it reaches you within 4-6 weeks.
>>7331499Thats only five days.
>>7330659There is a bit of plastic that you can shave off from inside the leg (that isn't visible in any mode) that makes the tank mode tab in better, and the main gun easier to peg in the center.
>>7330888>>7330873Can someone confirm if it's an OSKO or not?
>>7331499It usually takes a bit less than 2 weeks for me, 5 days is way too early to bitch.
>>7330200It's pretty valuable. You could get $100-250 for it. It's the ONLY US Soundwave reissue that uses the original window for the chest (all US reissues use the Sountblaster mold with a larger chest window to fit the second tape). It also has FOUR tapes, whereas nearly all reissues of Soundwave for the US market only have Laserbeak. It's pretty much the best reissue of Soundwave to come to the US, so it goes for a pretty penny
>>7331917>(all US reissues use the Sountblaster mold with a larger chest window to fit the second tape).The new one is using the original chest, but he only comes with Buzzsaw.
>>7331920>BuzzsawOh yeah, everyone's favorite.
>>7330396Banana for scale is greatly appreciated.
>>7330018Of course they will anon! And why wouldn’t they? Windblade has been there since the very beginning back in ‘84. She provided air support for Wheeljack and Bumblebee in the very first episode of the cartoon while they were collecting fuel rods, don’t you remember?
This is a pretty minor niggle, but I think it's wierd that Siege is supposed to be based on the 1st episode of the G1 cartoon yet Soundwave has a yellow visor.
>>7329989>I expect them to be the 2021 titan.Huh.You know, 2021 being the 25th anniversary of Beast Wars, I could see them going for a beast-former as the titan that year.But isn't Piranacon a Scramble City combiner?
>>7329995I'm honestly expecting Countdown with no changes, and Omega Supreme going with a Unicron Trilogy "Weaponizer Titan" gimmick.
>>7330271>Titan's Return ArceeIf only the head had the grey used in the artwork and the eyes were more like the artwork.
>>7330433>giving the inner, true form a vulnerability like an uncovered mouth
>>7330403Does 'the Throne of Magnus' or 'the Magnus Throne' sound better? Scrap that, they both sound too serious or even sinister for Ultra Magnus.
>>7331279Thrilling 30The original jetfire is shit
>>7332074>>7332160Neither of you need to make new threads yetAnd enough fucking Transformers threads already
>>7331507I really do enjoy the look of the more compact Magnus more.
>>7331379Gonna need to paint the grill there and something on the windows to make the chest look better.
>>7332180Who cares if this kirafag starts the next thread? That's the big deal?
>>7332233gee i don't know, why wouldn't someone want to post in a blatantly bait filled OP, which becomes a magnet for shitposters and in turn supplies kirafag with a steady supply of (you)'s with every reply made?
Well, still on page 3 huh?
>imbecilic modsYou guys have a future job at That Fancy Website.
Can a mod just explain why the fuck threads are getting nuked out of nowhere? Is there a certain threshold before a new one can be made? Page limit? Time Limit? Just fucking something.
>>7332489It means we are going to page 10, baby!
>>7332469No kidding. My thread was fine.
>>7332489Common sense would mean you don't make a new thread on a slow board as soon as you hit the bump limit.
>>7332995I explained why I made mine and the mods even nuked that. tl;dr: Kirafag was trying to divert discussion into a bait thread and I was countering. I wouldn't have even made a thread otherwise.
>>7332995Common sense would mean you don't give a shit about arbitrary "rules" and make the new thread whenever the fuck you feel like it.
>>7330082they should have had mps years ago
>>7331320The PotP leaders had the perfect gimmick for Star Saber and we didn't get him. I think we'll have to accept the Masterpiece is all hes ever getting at this point.>>7331332You think thats bad try finding shit in the UK, I just preorder the japanese releases, at least then I can guarantee I'll actually get them, even if it is 3 months later than the US release.
>>7331283With the success of the new movie and the fact mpm-7 is a vw bumblebee, there’ a slight chance it could be blitzwing, shatter, dropkick, or at the most unlikely: a freightliner optimus
