Old thread (>>7385378) is on autosage. Continue here.Post CHONKY Transformers.
>>7386398Daddy warden? Please don’t give us Star Saber, you’ll break the G1 fairy spell
Diversion ... ?...
>>7386406Oh, he looks so retarded! I kinda want him for the lulz.
>>7386406You can finger his chest...sad
>>7386398>Chad Dai Atlas and the Powered Masters get a proper combined vehicle mode that looks like a cool space warship>Star Convoy and the Battelstars get a combined mode of Convoy tugging Grandus while Sky Garry sits atopJUSTAnd further, I doubt the new Star convoy will be able to resemble his vehicle mode, to say nothing of the base mode.
I don't care for perfect Sunbow accuracy, but the fact he can have spike fit in and his car mode look so cute almost make me forgive the mess of kibble and make me want to buy it. Almost.
>I love NYNo, you don't.
somebody else post the rest of the Blue Streak images.
>>7386406>130Man, even at 60, I'd feel ripped off getting this guy. He compromises way too much to achieve the toon look.
New DreadwingIs punishingHis Gatling gun is illin'!This Decepticon bomber's aTransformer-rama,A three-in-one villain that's chillin'!Combat tank and sonic jetTransform into double-trouble robotsTheir missiles go boomSpelling certain doomAs they take apart the awesome Autobots!
>>7386419Now... what are the chance we actually get a toy version of Ultra Megatron ?
>>7386434He’ll go on sale almost immediately I’m calling it
>>7386441Hah, fucking never.
>>7386419>Star convoy base mode.Nothing of value was lost, Omega could work as base for a new Grandus, their base modes look a like if you remove the tank trail.
>>7386446>He’ll go on sale almost immediately I’m calling itmore like he'll hang on for a shitload of time in BBTS sale hell until someone pities him enough to buy him.
So what do you think of cyberverse line ? I got soundwave and it's just fine and I kinda want to get grimlock but Its too kiddie shit is is the line good ?
>>7386441Even the Nine Great Demon Generals are more likely.
>>7386467It's been too kiddy shit, but today's reveals for the line look pretty fun. >>7385887>>7385896>>7385913>>7385920>>7385932>>7385938>>7385947>>7385955
>>7386467No, at least not yet.seems that it might change with that new line reveals though.
>>7386469Can't believe we're just missing the sea bois to complete them.
>>7386476Black Zarak too.
>>7386476We'll get Scorponok, but I really doubt they'll make a Black Zarak figure.
>>7386419My favourite Dai Atlas is King Atlas (Machine Wars Starscream) but I have to be the only one who thinks that. I just love weird repaints and Universe 1.0.>>7386472Is the armour swappable between figures? Or do they only fit one figure?
>>7386491there's pegholes in the figures, let's hope they are warrior sized, if they are the chance of them being 5mm holes is all but confirmed, so going insane with the armor pieces will be a possibility.well, at least the arms, chests seem to slot in which limits choices
>>7386494They'll work as long as they provide connections for the torso armor to the back. I'll just look wonky on certain figures.
>>7386491>I have to be the only one who thinks thatYeah... I've had him a few times on my hands but didn't bought him because hes a brick and just an Atlas in name, mostly because of the brickness tho.
>>7386496if they were just holes it would be all fully universal.well, at least with something with a similar bodytype
Cog + Battle Masters = so much fun. I'm going to get a second Cog too because you guys made him look so fun.
>>7386497There's something really charming to me about some older brick transformers. The WonFes Star Convoy reveal made me want to buy the reissue of the original more than the new one.
>>7386509Also King Atlas' weathering is a million times better than Siege's somehow
>>7386431I think Bluestreak is the perfeect way to compromise sunbow accuracy with earlier MP standards.I wish MP-12+ had a new sculpt for the head
>>7386406>>7386422>$130Something else has to be there or someone doubled the price when calculating it.
>>7386535or maybe the parts count skyrocketed the price
>>7386535They already showed the accessories. He doesn't even come with a jet pack or exo suit.
>>7386413Okay, so we get a clavicle joint and a shoulder joint.
>>7386406>costs almost as much as Unique Toys ChallengerLicensed products are just bullshit aren't they?
>>7386410God damn it looks dumb
>>7386547double elbows and knees too.
>>7386410Are the wheela rubber?
>>7386441Siege shockwave would be an easy retool
>>7386398If an update for jetfire and overload isn't made to go with the new armada optimus, I hope 3p picks up the ball.
>>7386543Im aware. Just seems too much for so little. Hopefully Japanese retailers have him at a nice preorder price.
>>7386501>Ptime on roller skatesNeat!
>>7386563I was always hoping they'd do a Platinum edition of the three in sweet colours, like they did for Energon Prime and Omega.This would be good too.
Sideswipe 2.0 leak
>>7386398I know a dude who's selling this at his booth at a flea market for $200.I'm tempted.
>>7386578Looks more like a bayformer Sideswipe.
>>7386581Too much color
>>7386578don't spread your filthy lies, THIS is the new MP sideswipe
>>7386579There has to be a cheaper alternative online
>>7386419>>7386454You know if they did make a Grandus I hope they could make it so you can attach him to T30 Metro in carrier mode. >>7386437Damn, you got me excited for a minute, but I will admit those armor up Cyberverse figures are pretty cool. >>7386441About as likely as getting a Guiltaur toy.
>>7386600I wonder how many tried making Guiltaur out of this. You can't.
I’m going to be seriously pissed if we only get Sunbow G1 characters from the Commander class. Also starting to think that some of the poll losers from a POTP are gone for good
Grandus would be great, but I want him to be appropriately lardass. I'm sure any modern update would try to "cool" him up and put him on a diet.
>>7386609I mean, most of the stuff we’ve got from Siege is appropriately chunky
>>7386571Nah I think the update route is better, armada optimus was a cool design but his main toy just dosen't stand up like fire convoy or galaxy cover do.Bendy prime is a different story but he had no super mode to speak of
>>7386581Theres a bunch if movieverse desgins you can bitch about but sideswipe is not one of em
>>7386581what a great joke my fellow geewunner! have an XD for you! XD
>>7386637Agreed. Knight Bumblebee is way worse.
>>7386431>using MP21 instead bee 2.0
cheem working his magic.
>>7386664That chibi Beetle is totes adorbs, but nope, not gonna bite.
>>7386667>remember him? this is him now.
>>7386010How's the paint/chrome? Any scratching?
>>7386661>Those stubby arms.>Giant hole in the side.Thats a nope for me dawg
>>7386661>Still waiting for someone to add the text...
>>7386777Damn it. I don't want to be compelled to collect all of them...
>>7386472So who has the best helmet armor?Also will they pull a SSSS Gridman and have the armors combine into their own bot like Powered Zenon?
>>7386406So the side of his torso is just a hollow gap?
>>7386777You're confuse, they're both virgins.
>>7386819Imagine paying over 100 dollars for this
>>7386679Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
I may actually drop some cash on the new Sky Byte. More Japanese characters is always a plus and I really love the drill bot that turns into armor. It looks like some of it will be compatible with siege stuff as well which is fucking sick
>>7386661>>7386664Really. It all depends on how the few releases after come out. Hound still looks like he could fit in with the cars and vans. Bee is just pushing the toon look up there with Prime, just this time suffering greatly for it.Old Bee still feels that look of realism I enjoy in the licensed car part of the line.
>>7386406I think it's funny that people complained about the proportions and the backpack of the last MP Bee, and those two things are objectively worse on 2.0>>7386410This is cute in concept, but christ, it looks like a junkyard reject.
>>7386637All the faces suck.
>>7386819why would you need to see him from the side. It's a pose fag question
>>7386819Considering how many Cybertronians walk on their windshields, fucking nobody must have intact ones. Unless they regenerate. Like how somehow all-metal bodies grow glass as needed. Or why they'd even need windows on Cybertron given the vehicle pilot is the vehicle itself. Or where their vehicle eyes are. Or if you can drive a corpse, making burial useless since you can shove Micromasters into dead bodies.
>>7386849Depends. In the old movies it was all like skin. Bullets and stuff were like nails and hair. They just grow it and shed it. With the cartoons its 2d magic.
>>7386849>he thinks alien robots are comprised of human-made materials
>>7386819>>7386862In fairness, the butt-flap does seem to fold up into the the backpack giving it a bit more of a turtle shell look.Which is ...better?
>>7386856Can we harvest Cybertronian corpses for truly unbreakable glass?
>>7386862It still weirds me out how soon
>>7386846The side likes awful from every angle except directly from the front. It looks like it has a huge hole running through the side, even when it's barely turned.
>>7386849Cybertronians aren't robots, they're living aliens that look like machines to humans, its different.>>7386856>Trek gif>doesn't mentions transparent aluminum>>7386870Whats transormium.
>>7386819>side kibbleTakara fucked up so bad they invented side kibble!
>>7386880>doesn't mentions transparent aluminumIt's from that scene, ya great feeb.
>>7386870You bet your ass we can! Why do you think humans had movie Ratchet murdered.Cybertronians are made of all sorts of useful materials, like there tires which don’t rot or wear away after thousands or millions of years.(Disclaimer: Cybertronians may need to be in their original pre-earth disguise forms for you to be able to harvest exotic materials from their exteriors. Interior composition should remain mostly the same regardless though.)
>>7386862SO glad Takara fixed that shitty backpack the original had, lol.
>>7386893Seems to be a recurring theme now.
>>7386406>>7386661I'm honestly on the fence. I didn't think Bee looked dated til I seen 2.0 comparison. At the same time 2.0 seems so unfinished. Backpacks I've come to expect but those clown shoes are just plain sloppy and lazy.
>>7386867I admit the backpack looks a lot cleaner in this pic, and I don't even mind the panel-porn side view, but those heels are tragic
>>7386880>Whats transormium.Or Sentio Metallico for IDW.Fleshies aren’t the only ones who want to get their hands on that sweet sweet corpse-stuff.
>>7386819>The greatest of sacrifices require the strongest of wills.
>>7386901Was Blitzwing ever even confirmed killed or rescued before the continuity ended? Or was he just forgotten about and left in enternal tortured limbo?I feel like pic related was his last appearance. Yet another casualty of IDWs weirdly rushed feeling continuity rap-up.
>>7386946That was it.
>>7386819Somebody signed off on this.
>>7386472Skybyte with proper elbows and boat-girl Bee look somewhat decent
>there are leaks of a leader class astrotrain in the works for Siege>poll losers from POTP still MIAAre we truly in hell
>>7386819This 3P cliffjuper came out last year and was controversial because of the backpack. Amazing to think an official Cliffjumper would be even worse, with a less impressive alt-mode.
>>7387003Shut up, retard. Dragon ball images, another thing to add to the shitpost sign list.
>>7387003Losers are just that, losers.
>>7387014Well you would know better than most.
>>7386441zero most of the takara's original stuff are autobots or autobot leaders
>>7387014Woah..... really made me think....I guess Hasbro should keep pumping the line full of the 84 cast over and over since they’re the winners right?
>>73866612 bumblebees and not one cliffjumpertakara sucks
>>7386949Damn, Astrotrain May have died like a bitch, but at least that had closure and felt somewhat fitting.On a related note:>>7387003God, I hope his triple-changing isn’t getting shafted to accommodate (either through budget or design) some armor/upgrade add-on.Having ridged themes/mechanics imposed on entire size classes has caused a lot of non conventional/questionable design decisions over the last few years.Wonder which type of train and spaceship they’ll go for this time. (Assuming the leak is real.)
>>7386912The way I see it, the old one is still a better toy, overall, even if it's less accurate. If I had never seen the cartoon and you asked me which transforming VW robot I'd rather own, it would be MP-21, hands down. The new one looks like an absolute nightmare to transform, and like, with a transformation that complicated and unfinished looking, how do you even know when you're done?
>>7386777Wait no longer
>>7387031They'll get to him after Bumblebee 3.0
>>7387026you're fuck damn right they should
>>7386664>No, see guys? Masterpiece still does real word alt-modes.
>>7387050Have a (you) you magnificent bastard!
>>7387055I know I'm in the minority, but I love real-world alt-modes on Transformers, ever since RiD2001, and the MP line was great for that. I'm going to miss it
Can someone post cog/multicog and shockwave armor fan modes? My Google Fu isn't strong enough
What are those short asymmetrical pins for on Siege toys?
>>7387051Serious question though; If you had to bet money on it, which character with a pre-existing Masterpiece figure will be next to have a full redesign of them released?(Longshot odds are on Optimus 4.0)
>>7387087Grimlock with out a doubt.
>>7387050That’ll do son, that’ll do.
>>7387085If you mean the small peg-like structures dotted over them, you can attach the 'effect pieces' from battlemasters both into guns to simulate shooting AND onto figures to simulate being shot
>>7387095oh that's pretty cool, thanks. Guess that gives new meaning to the whole battle damage paint
>>7387003>>7387039>a leader class astrotrainObvious fanfiction, hasbro has been followng the sunbow scale to a T on Siege, Astrotrain is as tall as Optimus, so the Lg/TR already does the job.
Why the fuck are we getting a leader Astrotrain?We literally just got an Astrotrain, a Bliztwing, and an Octane. But now they're just making a leader of Astrotrain.WE STILL NEED THE REAL TRIPLE CHANGERS, WARDEN YOU FUCK!
>>7387100>Why the fuck are we getting a leader Astrotrain?We're not, its just random fanfiction.
>>7386797>armors combine into their own bot It wouldn’t be fully without president.(Pic related from RiD minicon armor)
>>7387050Weak and lazy.>>7387100Calm the fuck down and learn to spot the shitposters. Never, ever trust a random sourceless post in here talking about new "rumors". And we'll almost certainly get Apeface and Snapdragon alongside Scorponok next year.
>>7387103>>7387097you talk like a leader class has to be a leader class now, forgotten shockwave already?Leader astrotrain is very possible
>>7386946Turns out Joe has been infiltrated by villains. The evil Joes use the Visionaries gear, the good ones use the MASK gear.The Talisman gets tested on Blitzwing to prove it destroys Cybertronian life on contact, like it did Kup previously. Colton then sets out to drill to the center of Cybertron to drop it into Vector Sigma. Blitz dies with a stiff upper lip, thinking they were going to interrogate him about something.
>>7387003The POPT poll was for an evolution gimmick character as a Prime. You won't see Leader Arcee unless she becomes Magna Arcana for example.
>>7387097Just like Shockwave was the height of Megatron and yet he's still a leader class. They're using that price point for more mass now not more height.
>>7386844Oh boy, it's onions poster
>>7387112>>7387118>forgotten shockwave already?Following it to a T.
>>7387121Aye no shit pal, the point was that Shockwave is a leader class too so there's no reason Astrotrain couldn't be. Retard.
>>7387003Sauce on the astrotrain leak?
>>7387003Where are you even getting this from, for fucks sake
Do people seriously want new versions of the same characters because of a fucking scale chart?Since when has scale mattered in transformers?
>>7387126No, but its a nice bonus.
Some new UPCs and one new revealed figure!We'll start with Studio Series. Drift's upc is 3050978574Voyager Hero (should be BB Optimus) is 63050979524KSI Boss is 63050982452Long Haul is 63050982454As for Siege I have a surprising one that caught me off guard. My source has only been wrong once (with the Titan Master Optimus Prime head but that could have been canceled as that upc never got used) but I was expecting one of the figures that was revealed this weekend. Not...WFC Leader Class Astrotrain. E3419. UPC 63050988227oh, and Leader Siege Prime's upc is 63050980178
does Bumblebee voyager Prime have a waist swivel?
>>7387097>Astrotrain is as tall as OptimusAh, but what about vehicle mode?Ha ha! Forgot about mass-shifting, didn’t you?!What now you son of a bitch!
>>7387123Do you WANT a goatse link?
>>7387132So Astrotrain. is just a larger Voy.
>>7387135Those are clearly decepticons becoming tiny.
>>7386979>When people say Transformers would break a tree when they do ninja flips off them in the cartoons
>>7386406Finally a good Bumblebee for real fans. He will go nicely with my brand new Optimus.If you aren't buying this figure you're a poorfag
>>7387132With BB Optimus leaking out more and more, couldn't you easily check the UPC on that to prove this?
>>7387067> My googlefu isn’t strong enoughIf you actually want to find those your best bet is going back through archived /tfg/ threads, or skimming through this thread if you want to be really thorough:https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/war-for-cybertron-siege-appreciation-thread.1156282/page-42(That page is the first cog-combo, with the rest spread through the following 300 or so)
>>7387149How much is this Bumblebee supposed to be anyway?
>Siege AstrotrainIt literally would be a voyager size figure with add on parts
What if the (possible) new Astrotrain is a pretool of Sky Garry to go with Star Convoy and the potential Grandus-from-Omega-Supreme?
>>7387142Remember that time Blastoff became smaller/bigger than himself?Good times.
>>7387097so how big is magnus?
>>7387100Astrotrain was objectively the shittiest one of those though
>>7387100>Japanese G1Anon, I....
>>7387174A bit taller than optimus, like the Siege toy. heres the link to the full scale pic, beware, it is HUGE https://toyroom.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/sunbow_scale.jpg
>>7387132clever putting in fake info in the middle of real info, but you're posts have become too recognizable, we all know it's fakeBesides, a "leader" astrotrain would just be a voyager astrotrain with a caboose
>>7387087Starscream, His head already exists
>>7386406>cartoon accurate mentality >make ones of the characters that would suffer from it the mostSideswipe/Red Alert and Starscream should've been priority
>>7387212>astrotrain with a cabooseAn official transportation captain would be awesome.
>>7387219Not bad for a Crying Cat Bumblebee.
>>7387227Sideswipe/RA got +'s so its safe to say we won't see new versions of them if at all for a long time. I'm not holding my breath for starscream either. If they were going to do a new mold MP11 would have been it. For some reason the seeker mold is a sacred cow for TT.
>>7387219Reminds me. Besides the backpack the other issue I have with new Prime is where his hands connect to the forearms.
>>7387235Nah, MP-11 was too soon after 10 to be a new mold. I think Takara’s wants to do a new Seeker, but they already sold three sets of them to collectors, and getting people to do a third dip on the main trio and a second on the cone heads is a tough sell. Even if people didn’t buy all the existing ones, which is likely because who is that crazy except a select few, I think Takara’s realizes how despicable it’d be to make the set of 6 they have obsolete so soon.
>>7387244It's gonna happen, and be one of the next figures. You forget how many different versions of MP-10's they made, why wouldn't people then buy the Seekers all over again?
>>7387229I mean, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind getting another astrotrain, but we just got one with two cybertronian modes.
>>7387219Granite counter scaling is a fascinating and very welcome art.
>>7387247a steam locomotice is the only way I'd want this new AT. No bullet train, no made up random chunk of whatever "Cybertronian" generic thing.
I think I'm going to go in on bee 2.0 from TCP. I know between now a sept I'll have enough points built up to knock at least $35 off bringing him down to what the MP21 cost.
>>7387255yeah, but would they do it?look at ultra magnus and soundwave
>>7387255the fuck is locomotive doing in cybertronsiege is all about cybertronian alt modes, geewhiner
>>7387246>>7387244Another factor from the collector standpoint is a lot of people already dumped the MP-11 molds they had, all 6 or 8 of them (depending on rainmakers) so they could get the Maketoys versions. So some people would be making a 3rd dip, (possibly 4th dip if they had the mp7 molds) on these which is even more crazy when you think about it. That's a lot of money down the drain, and people into the toon aesthetic who already dumped once or twice and picked up the maketoys figures I dont think will be as compelled as those who have the greeble mess of mp-11's.
>>7387279>the fuck is locomotive doing in cybertronWhy do they have cockpits? Just go with it.
>>7387050did you just make me want 2.0?
>>7387309Maketoys even got a Takara desu goner to do their Seeker: it’s basically an unofficial official release
>>7387309HC collectors will go in if they see significant improvements. There's also the chance some are just getting starting collecting MP so there's potential sales there as well.
>>7387279it looks cool>>7387322>Why do they have cockpitsfor them smaller robots like headmasters
If they use jetfire for thunderwing, I'm buying it without a second thought
How much do you guys think Armada Prime will go for?
>>7387379That's retarded. You're retarded.
>>7386867the original looks like a super hero capewhich is cute
>>7386600>About as likely as getting a Guiltaur toy.honestly I'm actually kinda surprised we haven't gotten him already, all you'd have to do is some relatively mild remolding to an Optimus mold
>>7387279There are some questions we simply shouldn’t ask.
>>7386862How can anyone defend this, mp21 was cleaner and the price while a bit much wasn't such a hard pill to swallow considering the accessories it had, this new one has worse kibble issues and isn't a clean figure and at 13000yen you'd be fucking stupid to think it's ok>BUT YOU DONT LOOK AT FIGURES FROM BEHIND IN A DISPLAYNot everyone just poses these once so I'll be looking at it's back every transformation and from the looks of it it'll be needlessly complicated>BUT IT LOOKS SO MUCH LIKE THE CARTOONLooks like car mode first which is amazing, but only the FRONT of the robot mode got some attention, ok I admit I still would be more hard pressed into a cliff jumper retool than this but I'd be waiting on a massive saleI can stomach the new mp prime for the whole package, but this bee is so overpriced with so little to show for it it makes the old 6000yen one look like a steal
>>7387279>but I want it to look like shit! Fuck you for having good taste! REEDUN!but yeah, Siege. It'll be a pile of nothing they call a "train".
>>7387474MP21 looks like shit. That's how.
>>7387472Reminds me of this comic.
>>7386472So close to a top tier homage. So close...
>>7387482When is he going to be finally updated, the 3p atempt doesn't look like him at all.
>>7387483Also, same guy I stole that from made this. (The boat’s Titalwave)
>>7387482>>7387486Sauce? This is hilarious.
>>7387487And two more of armada primes Many repaints.
>>7387487Damn I hope they actually have interchange armor
>>7387491Artist is named Herzspalter, they draw Jojo stuff too.
>>7387039arcee was a cunt in that comic
>>7387506Weren't most of the Autobots cunts in that comic (at least before dark cybertron)?
>>7387458mix and matching parts of the leader optimus and ultra magnus might actually make a pretty convincing Guiltuar
>>7387491That specific one is here:http://herzspalter.tumblr.com/post/139204251220/He also has a great ‘G1 recap’ series of comics:http://herzspalter.tumblr.com/tagged/G1-Recap/chrono/
>>7387513>HeIt's a girl.
>>7387528>Harmful Lobsteraren't they all?My dad told me a story about how in China, he was at a fancy dinner and they had fresh lobster with it's tail sliced up.Halfway through the meal, the front half of the lobster got up and walked awaythose things are freaks
>>7387530Now they may be freaks, but it's not nice to call Chinese people 'things'.
>>7387533lol, walked into that one
>>7387529Nope, just a normal girl, she's been doing transformers fanart for years on tumblr and just recently got into JoJo.
>people actually prefer the mishapen blob on the right
>>7387564>people actually prefer the clusterfuck of panels on the center
>>7387572it's not a problem if you ignore it, and besides, it's gonna be retooled as cliffjumper
>>7387572It still looks better.
>>7387578>It's not a problem if you just ignore the problem
I remember when MP-21 came out and people were shocked at the price tag of it, all the "$50 deluxe" memes.And here we are now, a few years on looking at a $130 deluxe but it's ok because it looks like a sunbow blob, turns into a bastardised Beetle and just explodes between modes.
>>7387583Technically if your a solipsist the logic is sound.
>>7386605You're just too weak.
>>7387583I'm just saying they're a small issue, it also has better articulation and proportions to mp-21's
Can any of you guys identify this one? I don't have his box anymore and I want to sell it.I know it's not from the movies but I bought it around the time the first one came out in theaters.
>>7387607Cybertron defense red alert, ultra class.
>>7387612beat me to it
>>7387279But Omega Supreme. Also, heavy cargo and public transportation.
How upset will MP fags be if Hasbro announces Siege Bumblebee at Toy Fair?
>>7386819MP Starscream v3's legs will look like this
>>7387623Unrelated, but I just realized how much I just want a comic about everything solely from the Decepticon perspective with Soundwave trying to keep all the backstabbers like Starscream, Tarantulas, Counter-punch, and the like from offing Megatron.
>>7387633Shockwave: from a humble bus to a senator to the reason everything bad that ever happened occurred other than that one thing with god.
>>7386424>10 year challenge
>>7387654Everything in that bottom image looks so much shittier. How could this happen? Why would they let this happen?
>>7387564Why does he have S O Y face in the middle?
>>7387513Huh, I've seen this artist's stuff before and like it.
If the Siege Impactor does end up getting retooled into CD Shattorshot, what are the chances they'll do the repaints of it like this guy?
>>7387664zero, cause the odds of him being retooled into scattershot is just above zero
>>7387655I have a theory, but it's just that, a theory. I assume Takara was fed up with Third Party companies making MP's and decided to tackle the market at a different angle, so instead of making them as modernized version of the G1 design without going into Generations territory, they went all in into making them animation accurate and "premium" as possible by slathering the toys in paint. They probably thought nostalgia would also help these new MP's sell more since the new toys are just like the cartoon in appearance. The increased parts count might be away to discourage KO's as well.Time will tell if this strategy works, but the fact they keep making new toys in this style means they're confident in it all working out.
>>7387623I know it may piss the ever living hell out of a lot of people, but I un-ironically somewhat hope for a Seige Windblade.Mostly because I’m hoping for one which has a solid torso and non-ugly version of her face, but isn’t a headmaster, has her classic sword, and just maybe doesn’t have an unitigrated cockpit hanging off her back. And yes I know there’s a high chance they would still botch it anyways, but a guy can dream.
>>7387671Their Beast Wars MPs certainly seem like they are hard to KO. They couldn't even find factories to do the (cheaper) china release of MP Dinobot.
what stopping MP line to use AOE galvatron engineering?half of new MP bee body are faux parts, may as well went full inside out transformation
>>7387685But there's a KO of MP Dinobot on AE for $36. >>7387683Not me, I like Windblade. Although she shouldn't really be around during the start of the war unless you make her an entirely different character given her shtick is coming from an Energon-rare planet and being the only one able to speak with Titans in their city modes without having their mind blown.
>>7387683I'm cautious on them releasing a new Windblade just because the comic will feature versions of characters from the Prime Wars lines as well as Siege. So that may be a Titans Return Windblade with Bumblebee. https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/idw-transformers-2019-issue-8-anna-malkova-cover-revealed/42866/Cyclonus is shown for example as his Combiner Wars version for issue #8.
>>7387698What if she's just Bumblebees friend like in Cyberverse
>>7387699The comic artists just seem to use whatever version until Hasbro gets up their asses about promoting a new figure.That's why Starscream kept changing forms in the IDW run but characters like Cyclonus didn't. Hasbro only told them to sell the new Starscream, but since they didn't order advertising TR Cyc they didn't.
>>7387698>But there's a KO of MP Dinobot on AE for $36Last I heard that's the one stolen off that 3D printed fan project.
>>7387701I guess that works. You lose everything that makes her stand out however. It works for Cyberverse because its a kids cartoon so reinvention and massive simplification is fine, but WFC seems to be more the teen and adult line. I guess you could just shift the timeline, and namedop Caminus on the back of the figure box and let us nerds go "Oh cool, so we know why she doesn't have a gun."
>>7387702It's possible Hasbro's forcing them to use recent toy designs for each character (not the first time they've forced designs), explaining Cyclonus looking like his Prime wars version... but not Windblade
>>7386419>>7386454>>7386600>literally just a flat square and a weird opened thing>aircraft carriers are also a brick>picked up Alpha Trion and Broadside anyway>regret not getting MetroplexMan why are vehicles like this so cool, it's literally just a flat top>FlattopFUCK, I WANT HIM TOO
>>7387704It is. It's a decent figure, but it's not MP scale. It's actually a chug scale and the size of a voyager. It's modeled off of his original Beast Wars figure wit some changes to make it in line with the cartoon.
>>7387683well, I don't think we'll get a siege windblade, and the fact that her comic version is using titans return is a pretty solid indicator.So far we've only seen characters getting new bodies in siege, bumblebee, and her and cyclonus using prime wars trilogy moldsBumblebee I'm betting is gonna be in the last part of siege, as a deluxe. It seems like his transformation is just his feet becoming the front of his car mode, his arms becoming the fins on the side, and his head tucking away. In fact, it's fairly similar to how reflector transforms now, just with different kibble. In fact, no wheels to be seen so he's definitely getting his hovermode, so I can definitely see them getting remolded into BBBut as for Windblade, the only way I can see them doing her is going the chromia route and retooling a POTP darkwingeveryone else is just so wide-chested.More likely she'll be in the next line
>>7387719maybe idw BB is just advertising the MP 2.0
>>7387699This is so disappointing to me because it shows that they're basically rehashing old plot lines that were pretty poorUnless they rewrite Cyclonus as a time traveler or a secret agent of unicron, I don't care to see the same old stuff.But it also makes me wonder just how much Hasbro is dictating. It looks like, especially with Bee and Windblade being friends, the lineup is almost entirely Hasbro's doing, as a way to push toys/promote their shows
>>7387709>explaining Cyclonus looking like his Prime wars version... but not Windbladeno, windblade IS using her prime wars version
Micromasters Walmart listingsOff Road Patrol: Tote and HighjumpSoundwave Sabotage Patrol: Rumble and WingthingDecepticon Sports Car Patrol: Hyperdrive and RoadhuggerWalgreens Exclusive Decepticon Greatest hits Vol.1: Frenzy, Ratbat, Slugfest, OverkillThe Skywarp exclusive is coming with Beastbox and Squak Talk while the Autobot Multipack with G2 Sideswipe is coming with Grandslam and Raindance.Skywarp might not be coming with his traditional black and purple color scheme but instead a Yellow, White, gray, and Red one.
>>7387727Would be funny if Hasbro dictated IDW to draw in all the greebles on the SIEGE toys.
>>7387728No? It's her IDW design she used for most of her existence. It's not based on her toy. Compare details of the TR, and the only detail that matches well are details the comic design added first, her legs and arms don't match.
>>7387725that thought did occur to mebut they specifically mentioned Starscream, Bumblebee, Jazz, and Wheeljack as being one of the few with canon cartoon cybertronian modes.I don't expect we'll get jazz staying true to his cybertronian alt mode because it's transformation is rather non-sensical, and frankly they may not make him at all.
>>7387727But...the same old stuff is if he's Skywarp.Having him an independent character has only been done once. >>7387732Not without Milne they aren't.
Why don't IDW just make tie-in comics with the Cyberverse cartoon? They seem to be using the same cast of characters.
>>7386413as someone who actually watched the cartoons i think he looks great
>>7387739nah, it's not a perfect match, but it's mostly the same. Note the distinct blue collaring, which on all other iterations of windblade is a different shape. Not to mention her face makeup is the TR one.Technically she's probably closer to the takara legends since her shoulders are all black.Now, that particular artist drew her feet more like classic windblade, but that doesn't mean much, bumblebee's details have changed from cover to cover too.but this shot is very obviously the TR/TL one
>>7387743>asking for sauce from obvious fake newsYou might be new.This guy does this all the time.There's never any source.He posts shit so he can talk about it on his blog or podcast or whatever as if it's real
>>7387756I know it's bullshit, that's why I ask for source since I know he can't back it up.
>>7387753Yeah, this one's the TR. Guess we're in for another bunch of comics where they can't keep characters with consistent models across issues. Yay.
>>7387756He started doing it after getting btfo over claims that /toy/ was the source of G2 Megatron, after saying that /toy/ was a source before for scanned comic pages, only for the Siebertron news post to reference a forum poster who said they got the scans from 4chan. He then began spamming fake posts.
>>7387759but the TR is the only one without a man-face.
>>7387763As mentioned earlier, the other cover used the older IDW model for Windblade that started showing up after Dark Cybertron. The TR draws some inspiration from that version for the face and torso.One cover used the IDW design, the other used the TR design.
>>7387762Can't believe his previous tactic worked>post SS future wave "leaks" on 4chan>picked up by stupid chinese forum that no speaka english>reposted on That Fancy Website's front page citing chinese sauce.
>>7387746>Having him an independent character has only been done once.Not reallyIn the marvel comics, while he was rebuilt from a decepticon, it wasn't an existing decepticonand dreamwave introduced him as a unique character right before they went underI think the devil's due publishing GIJoe vs Transformers had him as a separate characterand the aligned continuity definitely didn't have him as skywarpSo not that unusual, and definitely done before IDW did it
>>7387773Not him, but I'm a bit annoyed they're already using Cyclonus so soon. He got to be a major character for years, so he should be out of bounds for a while. At least do something with Scourge, like that idea of having him be the Decepticons version of Kup.
>>7387749That requires coordination. Something Hasbro cannot into. Also, IDW is comfortable being in the section for teens and adults, while Cyberverse comics would go on the kiddie rack with Adventure Time and whatever else the younger kids are into now.
>>7387769Can't believe it?That's literally how the media works these daysSome scurrilous rumor gets reported to the feds with no proof, sometimes even proof to contrarythey "leak" it to a low-tier news source like yahoo newsSuddenly claim that yahoo must have come up with it independently, which means there's something to it!I'm old enough to remember that this has been a thing for awhile. Seeding and harvesting info is practiced by governments, politicians, companies, press, and now websitesHell family guy even made a joke about it years ago (starting a rumor about rob schneider paying illegal aliens to choke him in the shower)
>>7387763CW one is pretty good, aside from the alt mode gaps and the inability to stand.
>>7387774Actually that works well. Honestly I hate characters getting new bodies and suddenly being treated like new characters, so I'm happy that they're independent still. But you're right about Scourge there.
>>7387774>At least do something with Scourge, like that idea of having him be the Decepticons version of Kup.I didn't know about this.I could actually see Cyclonus fitting that bill better.Personally for scourge I like the idea that they tiptoed into about him being a horror.Like being transformers equivalent of undead. They should make him able to feed on other's energon, and even convert them into a mindless sweep

>>7387050>calling backpack kibble from hell superiorPathetic and utter shit taste
What happens if you Transmetallize G1 characters?
>>7387774>>7387773I'm thinking he's a separate character in this new continuity, because they're not gonna make him a seeker rebuilt as Cyclonus, when they have both Skywarp and Thundercracker figures in the works for Siege. And if they're following the toys then they're of course going to appear, and Cyclonus would have to be his own separate entity.
>>7387783literally none of thosepersonally, I'd love to see a devcon (no TFCC doesn't count) or Xaaron
Anyone else like the skull look that IDW Cyclonus had? He almost looks like he should be in a team with Bludgeon and Skullgrin.
>>7387790I really hope they give Thundetcracker his Actionmaster colors. I’m sick of all the bland bullshit the seekers are.
>>7387781From the dreaded ongoing, one of the ideas for the eventual Decepticon Civil war was that Scourge would serve as the Kup figure for the Decepticons and would ally with one of the major camps.Starscream even mentioned him in an issue referencing the civil war, but the idea was dropped later on so he wasn't used.Then he finally shows and dies after not doing anything.
>>7387787Megatron just changed colors and was "stronger". We never get the conclusion to his power up since no story follows up from him getting it.
>>7387787I often hope we'll see more Beast Wars characters show up like Oprimus Primal did. Transmetals work very well mixed with G1 style characters. I had hopes that Blackarachnia would end up as a chug, because she was rumored for awhile to be getting a new figure, because of her Hall of Fame vote. MP is ok, but I'd rather she be main line as a Siege Voyager.
>>7387799If her MP sells well they'll probably go back and give her the Animated treatment in a G1 continuity. Except without her being a teenage mutant Elita-1.
>>7387790I've got it figured outIt's actually Armada CyclonusWho gets turned in Snow CatWhich will get an Ironhide-retool in WFCWa la
>>7387784third parties can list things on walmart's site now, and the listing is now disabled, so there's no way to check the actual source
>>7387762I'm not the shitposter and I'm the guy that posted the links to the Ginrai comic. You people are paranoid beyond belief, there's more than just 1 person that posts things in these arguments you retard you can't just lump everyone together to create a big bad boogeyman. Retard.
>>7387783Flatline.We need a proper Decepticon medic
>>7387806Did I ID you as the guy? No, the fag doing it said /toy/ was a source before, then you chimed in posting the link to the supposed story that /toy/ was supposed to be the source of. Upon reading the link, it said it was a forum member who found the images on 4chan, and NOT anyone affiliated with Seibertron browsing the site, instead a cross poster from 4chan, reposting shit on their forum.

>>7387809I want a dark parallel to the protectabots with barricade, flatline, spinister, fracture, and clench as the torso, leader, and the reason all of his team has to be fairly handy at saving lives, because often times Clench will mow down his own team mates if need be.

Cog is easily the best figure in the line so far. God damn he's fun.
>>7387847Hes going to be even better when we get more guys that can split apart like that.>franken bots built out of 2 dudes split apart and combined>multiple dudes used as GATTAI armor suits for smaller bots
>>7387843I'm surprised there hasn't been a new Transformers game since Devastation. That was like 3 years ago.
>>7387843I always thought a third game would be "Exodus From Cybertron"It'd follow the same naming convention, and the story would be how the space bridge ports the two parties out in the middle of no where, with each party having to touch down on planets, meteors, etc trying to scout it for energy, resources, etc. They'd visit junkion, quintessa, paradron, char, and then finally earth, where they'd crash after the final battle
>>7387843>>7387856>>7387862Theres a 3rd game, it got rushed to be tied to a movie, but we don't talk about it.

>>7387803Goddamn I want that now
>>7387787Transmetal 1 reversed their alt models so organic robots and robot beasts. I have no idea how that would work for G1. Transmetal 2 makes them asswmytrical cyborgs with creepy spark powers so basically the Borg which would be great. I wish blackarachnia toys got repainted into arcee more.Its be so easy to make beast wars mos worh g1 toys too that its prettydisappointin they rarely do it. Animated did it well but only added a few.
So I heard you all like milf arceeSo here's mine.But on the subject of Arcee retools, the more time goes by, the more I really want an arcee prime. I wouldn't even mind if it was a rodimus retool. Just.. not a POTP one.
Loving Siege's commitment to scale but I don't understand why they didn't just make Ironhide and Shockwave voyager class.
>>7385780In fairness the original is still pretty fucking baller.If you can find him on Mandarake, I HIGHLY recommend picking yourself up a Magmatron.
>>7386424>MP44's front wheels aren't touching the ground because of undercarriage kibblegod damn
>>7387279It's standing in a Cybertronian museum, you dingus!
>>7386394>Why not have shit that's to scale for the modern updates, like bicycles and drones? You could get some interesting weapon modes out of that.Yeah, I'd love to see that. Like Armada Perceptor or something.
>>7387255I don't think Astrotrain has to be a shuttle or a steamtrain, to be honest.They're too old-fashioned and don't make sense in a modern setting (or as something to appeal to modern children).Give me a modern-day subway train that turns into a Soyuz rocket. That I'd love to see.
