Hello there also fuck geewun
Not off to a great start.
u knoe who needs a flame toys
Who else here is Baysed & not a Knightvirgin?
>>75366679/10 would drill that ass
Have they announced BA's price yet?
>>7536688Not officially but someone who has a good track record for providing info on these said 15000 yen.
>>7536667I want masterpiece jumpstarters.
>I feel like the latest MP scale has just reached impractical levels at this point.https://www.afcent.af.mil/News/Photos/igphoto/2002130120/
>>7536746If you think about it, this is arguably one of the single most expensive transformers customs in history.https://www.afcent.af.mil/News/Photos/igphoto/2002130117/
>>7536746>guy with the chocks is in shortswhat in the hell kind of show are they running over there at Lakenheath?
>>7536659Something the OP image reminded me of:http://alanyuppie.blogspot.com/2016/12/lego-last-autobot-part-1-of-2-alternate.html?m=1
>>7536761This would actually be pretty epic and intimidating as a concept in terms of scale if it was the autobot equivalent of a Worldsweeper
>>7536659Why is Autobot Barn not as popular as his brother and nemesis, Tarn?
I really want a Siege Minerva :(
>>7536775ugh too problematic sweatie
>>7536772>Alternate universe where Deathsaurus was actually right about Tarn.
>>7536767Let's take jesus off the dashboard.Got enough on his mind. Link to instructions?Transformable lego robots are always interesting and with the kreo heads and fists you could really make them look like robots.
>>7536782>Alternate universe where Deathsaurus was actually right about Tarn.What did idw do this time?
>>7536798Just a bit of throwaway banter.
>>7536795>Let's take jesus off the dashboard.Got enough on his mind. Instructions unclear.
wave 4 when I want Brunt already
>>7536815Why is your submarine upside down?
>>7536670based baychad poster
>>7536815Honestly this art is too good for this thread. We are not worthy to experience this level of lovable cleverness.
>>7536840With all due respect its pretty mediocre.
>>7536670They're both shit, the robots are still an ugly eyesore, the directors should never have been allowed near the industry, the writing still terrible and only retarded people like these films.
Picked this guy up yesterday. God, he's really fun for a 07 movie toy.
>>7536898>only retarded people like these filmsWhich fandom are these films pandering to again?Oh right, the tf fandom.The same people who call themselves fans but shit on every toyline produced by hastak.The allspark is a microcosm of tf fandom.
>>7536919The 07 toys were pretty solid. Really liked the voyager optimus and ironhide.
>>7536919I like that his shoulders are mini-con compatible.
>>7536971>No glasses>doesn't even try to emulate the helmet shape with her hair doEhh, nice colors.
>>7536667Come here, little cunt, sit on your papa's hunch
>>7536919>I don't own this lad but i still prefer him to the SSWhat's wrong with me?
Anything here interesting not already covered by Tonton's review? I zoned out at the intro.
>>7536924>The allspark is a microcosm of tf fandom.Willis, ffs, go get a BBC for your wife and leave us alone.
>>7537042he can borrow the one John M's wife fucks
>>753704650/50 chance it's already like that
>>7537063having seen the wedding photo(the one where he wears those stolen valor army medals) the other 50/50 is that Walky IS his wife...
>>7537039I don't watch optimusbot on principle. Don't ask again.
I'm a bit annoyed with Siege not giving some characters all their weapons for no reason when the actual weapons have been made for them.Like Sideswipe having the rocket launcher, while Red Alert has the gun. Why not have them with both? Then there's Prowl not having his cannons, while Barricade comes with some, but not the gun Prowl uses, then Smokescreen comes with both weapons, and I'm guessing Bluestreak will have the regular cannons.
>>7537102It's standard repaints-in-disguise tactics, they spread out the accessories and maybe give it a new head, or make it an exclusive and part of a multi-pack.
>>7536775Ths only way you get a proper Minerva is if Nightbeat turned female. To be honest I 'd be alright if Nightbeat was a girl
>>7537133What if Nightbeat was a girl (male) instead
>>7537102Prowl never had his shoulder cannons in the cartoon
>>7537160Prowl never turned into whatever his Siege alt mode is in the cartoon
>>7536775I hear ya.The Titan Master version is probably the best we can hope for, but I'd love to see the humans get a bit of love for once by Hasbro.
>>7537063Is Grindcore good? I've had my eye on it for a while. I'm just a sucker for Constructicons.
>>7537191If you can handle the backpack? Yeah, he is pretty decent. Go for it if you find him at a good price.
So the rumors of Skylynx and megatron being the next two Commander class seem to be true.Two commanders a wave, although a megatron that big can only probably mean one thing.....
>>7537039Nothing we didn't already know.But it's interesting to see up close how the backpack basically covers up the shoddy parts of the altmode. The robot mode head storing inside it seems like a diversion: you notice that so you don't notice the rest. Sneaky Hastak.Also how can you hate Optibotimus but be totally ok with Tonton? Optibotimus has a terrible speaking voice and his little verbal tics grate the nerves, but Tonton is machine-translated and is just as jarring.Find me a TF reviewer that isn't awful to listen to and I've got a bridge to sell ya.
>>7537215This is news to me. I thought we were getting Astrotrain?
>>7537237Astrotrain is a leader not a commander.
>>7537238True but he rarely does the new stuff.
>>7537239So much for scale, then.
>>7537237It's bait. The faggot makes these posts all the time.
>>7537244>wanting scale in transformers
>>7537257I don't WANT it, but it's the whole point of the design philosophy of Siege and the Commander class.
>>7537240Thew is my go-to for just wanting to watch TF reviews, but I default to Peaugh when I want to see something about the new stuff.
To the anon who claimed that the G2 Optimus trailer connects to Siege Optimus as is, you’re correct no adaptor needed. He can pull the trailer no problem.
>>7537161We were told in advance siege would follow the cartoon for botmodes but with cybertronian altmodes, the interview was posted for months.min 7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbFPQ4nrFiU
>>7537264I like Peaugh, though he's lost his enthusiasm for the game.
Studio Series Alice when?
>>7537297Does it really matter? Shockwave has armor he never had, UM has an inner robot his cartoon version didn't have, Hound has his giant rifle from his toy, Prowl has that hammer combination he's never had before, Ironhide never had a huge hammer, etc...
>>7537302Pink, but more offensively shaped like a healthy human female. We know how everybody hates femmebots like that.
>Citing cartoon accuracy>G2 megatron was never in the cartoon>Megastorm was the only animated form of the mold>Megastorm towered over everything and got even bigger as GigastormCommander class would still work for the mold since he was larger than the combiners of bw2
>>7537317Red and white are the colors of a medical vehicle and is not shaped female, being just Nightbeat and Muzzle in different colors.
>>7537318So you are saying we'll LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF DOOM?
So what's the story with Allspark.com?
>>7537342It is a fansite about Transformers.
>>7537342They are very 'twitter progressive' types, they devolved into full craziness, it's better to ignore them.
>>7537317Fuck off Kira!
>>7537342>full of trolls pretending to be liberals to discredit libs.>prominent member is an admitted racist who hates floro dery for being philipino. Also makes mediocre comics and scams people. Mods are his best buddies so they delete any thread calling him out on this. Also has massive ego and condescending to others and actually thinks that he contributed massively to modern tf canon>another member is an autistic muppet who trades rare transformers for sex with young men at cons>also home to a deranged tranny who is offended by everything and thinks he is the voice of the fandom
>>7537362>photo comic>mistransformed arms micronWhere are the fanmodes?
>>7537360Also the members suck funpub cock so much they actually hate hasbro's generations selects for "stealing" funpub ideas even though it is hasbro's IP.Nazi Pete lost the license to run botcon and now holds a shitty robot convention with a shitty name.
With Siege Shockwave, getting many small Shockwave's from CW is now a blessing, since he now has his Shockfleet to keep him company or I can treat them like energy clones from his original power set.
>>7537374You can replicate the famous shot of Shockwave with a Shockwave gun.
>>7537372i hope they give us a generations selects hotshot just to rub shit in willis's face
>>7537377It's too bad he only came with one holding hand. Would have been nice if you could swap all the gun hands for normal hands for full mecha shiva mode with a tiny Shockwave on each hand.
>>7537382He has plenty of holes to stick pegs in
>>7537392The pegs on CW shockwave aren't normal, he has those stumps that get in the way, so options for figures to plug him in are limited.
>>7537395>Not circumcising your Shockwaves
>>7537283G1 Ginrai/PMOP's trailer works too and you can sort of get Siege Prime in for a power up mode although nothing locks into place for that.
Post fathers and sons who you are never to talk to again
>>7537215>4chan's been begging for a proper g2 megs for at least 6 months, but arguably since legends g2 megs got announced>been talking about skylinx being the perfect choice for the next commander ever since jetfire was announced >anon claims both are confirmedEither you never tire of trolling, or Hasbro DOES get ideas here.But also, a commander class megatron being a g2 tank is just overkill. There's no reason he would need the complexity of a commander class, nor does he allow for other figures to ride on him or anything like that.
>>7537133Tr hotrod was our best betHonestly, the rather strange choices for the torso design and the extremely tall shoulders makes me think it was originally intended.
>>7537591Hot big would that be compared to GI Joe or whatever? Maybe it is a cross-series gimmick.
>>7537591Jetfire allows figures to ride him, a headmaster/powermaster can even pilot him.Megatron at that size could do either
>>7537591>Hasbro DOES get ideas here.Reissue Flamewar, Transmutate too or do new versions for Siege.Do proper Knock Out, proper Airachnid and reissue Breakdown.And yes, do proper G2 Megs.>>7537531Anon that's a gril, she's a mom.
>>7537475this is my desktop wallpaper now, thanks anon
>>7537236>Optibotimus but be totally ok with TontonTonton is concise, his video is almost half the length of that. And while Optipot fumbles about with his hairy onions-arms, TonTon skillfully manipulates the toy with his sweatshop-optimized, battle-worn scarred arms. I bet he using the robot voice because his larynx got fucked up by stray shrapnel back in 'nam.
>>7537244>>7537260The entire selection of Leader class figures have armor-up gimmicks, so scale will still factor in. :^)
>>7537236Tonton just wants to show you the toy. Optibotimus is a shilling asshole with a bloated ego.
>>7537616>Anon that's a gril, she's a mom.Octopunch was never a gril.>Implying PrimeDon't give me that fanfic-tier bullshit, Anon.
>>7537743Optibotimus also instantly explodes with vitriol if you so much as imply that he might not be the best reviewer ever.
>>7537236WHETHER ITS FILLING UP MY CUP...
>>7537381Nah. Walky would just make it out like he influenced Hasbro to release that. This is the same guy who insists that CHUG straxus/datkmount's color scheme was based on his art, and the optimus maximus combiner was based on his idea when he was still a kid.Fucker literally thinks that his ideas influence hasbro so much. Why? Because he could not accept that Floro Dery is a Filipino.In his racist mind, a white guy like him should contribute more to transformers than some third world artist.
>>7537764More people should trigger that bastard this way. Doesn't he have a fetish for morbidly obese women? As in some guys sleep with fat chicks just to get laid but this guy actively seeks obese girls?
>>7537764This I gotta see.Anyone got a link?
>>7537789I don't have a link, but if you look through his comments sections you'll see him being rude to anyone who has anything critical to say about his content, even if it's as constructive and nice as possible.
>>7537778Happened in a convention a few years back. Optibotimus harassed a heavy girl so much he was escorted out by security
Behold Landfill and Scrapheap, come to bless this trash thread.
>>7537831I remember when he was changed his camera set up and was over blowing his white balance (something he still does) he was calling people idiots and morons in his comments for pointing out they couldn’t see the detail and his whites where overexposed.
>>7537945What should all the individual members be named?
>>7537744Sorry, Anon, but Octopunch is now canonically Solus' bodysuitImagine the smell
>>7536898Based and redpilled >only retarded people like these films.The logical result of normie pandering
>>7537948Trashwang and Compacter
>>7537958>The logical result of normie panderingAnon...that's the MCU. (That may or may not have gone full 'woke' thanks to Endgame.)
>>7537948>>7537963Compactor is good, call one Burnpile, after that it's just hit a thesarus and look up names for waste related words: Dreg, Rummage, Salvager, Piecemeal, Scree, Hopper, and Vandal.
>>7537978>RummageThat one is taken, though. Speaking of which, think we may get Detritus in WFC?
>>7537595Well that would scale fairly well with gijoe, that's true.>>7537616I'm wondering if we'll get a prime return
>>7537972All live-action is normie pandering.
>>7537986If it was up to me I'd make a proper Steeljaw since he may be the most underwhelming toy from RiD and that's bad for such a major player. And give the Rescue Bots proper figures, they did Blurr, it's entirely within the realm of possibility.
>>7537985>>7537945Repaint CW Hound.
>>7537958>>7537972>>7537987>normieSpotted the normalfags who browse reddit
>>7537978Call the combiner "dumpsterfire"The components are1. Takaracuck2. Hasbrocuck3. Bayfag4. Geewunner5. Crimson Commander
>>7537985I figured one or more would be... Ok, Ashcan and/or Jettison.
>>7538004Look, after watching such a self-indulgent movie such as Endgame that throws away logic and pacing just to give itself a blowjob, I don't see why I don't get to complain.Your typical reddit-tier normalfag would be singing praises to it. You know, I feel like I can respect Michael Bay even more after watching that.
>>7537236tonton is straight to the point and I presume the machine voice may be because of some accent which would be worse, which does force for a much tighter scriptoptibotimus reminds me of people with autism excited about something, perhaps on the low end of being an independent adult, I say this as a former special school student who teachers mistaken for having Aspergerregardless optibotimus needs to do a muted turn around video with his main reviews, even emgo caught on doing just transformation videos
>>7538019*The Baymovies are still not that great either, though. But I respect the man.
>>7538017>Ashcan and JettisonI like. Pair him with Astrotrain.
>>7537974I bet you smell like fish

>>7536761Post best toy insignias.
>>7537649>TonTon skillfully manipulates the toy with his sweatshop-optimized, battle-worn scarred arms. I bet he using the robot voice because his larynx got fucked up by stray shrapnel back in 'nam.Well... I just subscribed.
>>7538154Is that the Mech Fans Toys Huffer there? If so, how do you like him?
>>7538235Did you Reveal the Shield? I bet he's a Decepticon.
>>7538288Yeah, the backpack transformation is a bit fidly, but other than that hes great.
So I saw Speed Series Cliffjumper. Two questions, is it rare? And regardless of rarity, is it worth buying?
>>7536659A strange question - is there any small-scale transformers that turn into aerial drones? I don't remember any from the movies but still
>>7538340TF Prime Soundwave
>>7538341And it has a Legion class toy too, if you want something smol
>>7538338Ah, that's fucking cute...
>>7538338redpill me on turbo changers
>>7538347they may look like gummy candy you can eat, but don't do it.
>>7538347Botbots but they are movie guys with less paint, Lockdown sucks, coming soon Cyberverse guys (which really, is G1 and Beast Wars). Ironhide is awesome and Starscream looks like Waspinator.
>>7538347Edible toys - they're safe, they're fun, and best of all, they're free!
>>7538349If you can find him, there's also the Beast Hunters mold. In addition to being at least 20% more edgelord spikey instead of a tiny Laserbeak drone, it comes with a mini Ravage. The US colours are a nod to a Beast Wars character(forget who) and are kind of funky, but if you can find the Transformers GO version from Takara it has a gorgeous navy blue and gold deco.
I forget, are we still supposedly getting this guy?
>>7538384Nice-looking guys, it's pretty odd there was no actual drone-spy in any of the movies. Creepy-looking, one-eyed, mute and armed with laser-guided bombs - seems like rather a good kind of disguise for a small scout decepticon
>>7538431Bay dropped military vehicles after movie 3 cause in order to Ise military resources in a movie, you need to have scenes showing the army in a positive light. Now you can still use cgi models or rent out models of military vehicles as a stand in ( Brawl, for example, was a prop tank the studio owned) but if you want to use actual military stuff for filming you have to work with them. And they probably wouldn’t have liked a drone Decepticon.
>>7538429>Dedicate an entire size-class to headmaster triple changers>Don't do the only two actual headmaster triple changersWhat the fuck happened?
>>7537945Imagine buying 12 of the exact same shitty repaint
>>7538463They were trying to do too many things at once: Headmasters, TFTM characters, phase sixers and also voy for four of the triple changers.
>>7538463What part of Titans Returns was Warden at peak incompetence do people fail to understand? For fucks sake, there's no proper Nightbeat and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
>>7538471Night beat is irrelevant if you focus on show accuracy.
>>7538475 Going by what was in the shows Minerva should have a toy to repaint into Nightbeat.
>>7538475Show accuracy?>Wow, Getaway is an absolute bastard!>Let's release him at mass retail looking just like his IDW version!>Huh, he's shelfwarming...
>>7538463>had the perfect molds to make lazy BW homages for the anniversary>get Brawn, Overboard, and Ramhorn TMs
>>7538484Optimus Primal Apeface is just his TM2.
>>7538484>HEY GUYS, ALPHA TRION!!1ffs Warden.
>>7538235Which figure is this?
>>7538497Transformes 2010, RTS Strafe. Redeco of RotF Mindwipe.
>>7538134Finally got something to display my toys in.I'm thinking about taking some of these mini-cons out and getting MP Wheeljack. A couple medium sized MP scaled cons would be nice too. Threw in some 1/30 people in there too because I'm a scalefag.>>7538498Ah, thanks. I might actually like Mindwipe better, but Strafe is still neat, cool to see a Nighthawk with any color other than black.
>>7537531Daughters okay, too?
>>7538514Sure! >Me Grimlock bring daughter to work today.
>>7538520No this is his daughter
>>7538539So Slash is her aunt?
>Bumblebee Leader Soundwave has the better TM and alt mode>TR has the better robot modehmm
>>7538558I'd say pick the Bumblebee one, you can pick one of the eventual Siege redecos or remolds for the robot mode.
Will hasbro ever make G2 Dinobots?I need more bright colors in my collection
Remember the days before official combiners?Anon remembers.
>>7538584We might get them in selects at some point, we already got that megatron so G2 stuff isn't off the table
>>7538603>a FrenzyRumble original, tell me you didn't pay money for this.
>>7538627>that time he gave peaugh a Devastator to review but refused to let him show how it transformed on camera because it was held together with legos and magnets
>>7538603i remember when frenzyrumble made thousands of dollars off of discounted unicrons for years.
>At 5 below due to being in the area>entire peg full of AoE legends drift>Impulse buy, 3$ why not>Absolute ladIs legends class stuff always just fun?Drift's a bayformer and had no weapons but is the most joy a transformer's brought me since Blot.
>>7538642He also uploaded a special video showing how it transforms intended for Peuw, but the link was right out in the open and /toy/ downloaded it and put it on youtube and he sent out C&D's to every copy of the video he could find.He then claimed we hacked his website to get the video. The video link was literally right out in the open.
>>7538463Yeah I wonder
>>7538648Legends Drift is great. He sits on my desk and gets transformered fairly regularly when I'm waiting for the computer to do something. Most of the Legends/Legions toys are great.
>>7538603Remember the 6 Million Unicrons
Out of Siege Ironhide, Prowl, Sideswipe, Hound, and Cog, which figure do you guys consider to be the best? I'm probably gonna pick one of them up later this week since they are all available in my area, but I'm not sure which to pick up first. And I already have Sixgun and Flywheels, if that helps.
>>7538720Of those I only have Ironhide and Sideswipe, but Sideswipe is the better of the two. Ironhide is still worth getting just for being a CHUG Ironhide that's actually looks like Ironhide and isn't awful.
>>7538642>He commissioned 13 more crotches from him
>>7538471At least we got fucking base modes, something Siege has somehow failed to deliver on>Omega Supreme!150$ for something that’s barely even a base, literally a race track with a rocket and a tank plastered on.
>>7538720>SiegeTrash em all & look for Michael Bay studio series figures or based classics. Don't sully your collections with low effort manlets with Wardens shit smudged on them for the LoLs
>>7538742Hang in there anon
>>7538740So you think Sideswipe would make a better start as my first '84 Carbot? Cause all those characters I listed above would be my first toy versions of them, I'm just not sure where to start.
>>7538755I think Siege Sideswipe would be a good start to an '84 car collection.
>>7538648Some good legends figures are The Last Knight Hotrod, Dotm Bumblebee, RTS Prowl (or the Silverstreak that is the same mold), RTS Megatron, Prime Cyberverse Wheeljack, and Generations Jazz.
>>7538627FrenzyRumble didn't actually make any of the customs. He was using some other guy and while taking a huge percentage of the profits. And the guy quit when he found out and F_R resorted to scamming people for money by promising to do customs and then not delivering (like Cheets).
>>7538748>Revive Micromasters.>They are weapons now.>And the bases?>The what?You can't make this shit up.
>>7538760Movie Barricade is also great, he was my go-to 'I need to fiddle with something' bot for a long time. Bumblebee Movie Legions Barricade borrows its design from that figure and is therefore also good, so does Bumblebee Movie Legions Hot Rod.
>>7538760I fully recommend th Speed Series Bumblebee, fantastic lad.
>>7538702this little shit keeps falling over, i transform him back to car mode a lot just because keeping him standing is almost completely luck based at times
>>7538751My Optimus Prime has wrist swivels, ankle tilts, an axe, and his proper gun, and my Megatron isn't a shitty neon nerf gun. My Starscream can pose worth a damn and scales well. I have a Shockwave and a Soundwave.>>7538479Getaway's problems are mainly that he's Yet Another Dead End, when Rodimus would've been a better mold for him, and his colours are really undercooked, especially the grey head and unpainted eyes. He looks a lot better when given a good coat of paint, and I wager he'd look even better with the Hot Rod body.
>>7538763The lack of bases really irks me. Even Optimus doesn't even cone with a base anymore.We need bases to display our transformers.
Remember, they have all the molds to the micromaster bases. They do not need updating and can fit the new guys
>>7538720Hound gets high praise
>>7538813I love that base, I'd totally buy it to have it again.
>>7538603So many Unicrons lost forever, like tears in the rain
Man people who demand bases for their transformers are just as awful as the GIJoe people who want vehicles for their figures.Do you really want some oversized unrealistic hollow piece of crap on your shelves?Just get the basic figure and pose them, you can't pose a jeep or a building. Photoshop in scenery you don't need a physical building display.
>>7538789>My Starscream can pose worth a damn and scales well.*chest pops off*
>>7538844it's an 80's reference, you zoomer.His chest is a feature not a bug
>>7536782It amuses me that a 3rd party actually did this as a convention exsclusive.
>>7538856>turd party IDW donut steel toysSometimes it feels like Transformers was a mistake
>>7538862If you keep filling everyone's cups with those tears you'll be the new water cooler.
>>7538789>>7538844>>7538851How good/bad is Starscream, ironic posting aside? How easily does the thing pop off, how bad's the greebling/battle-damage paint? Megs, Prime, and Sideswipe's stuff was ignorable/not bad enough to find isopropyl alcohol forI just need more Decepticons... but voyagers are expensive now>>7538755Sideswipe was great, I exchanged Hound for him. Sideswipe is boring/safe but I don't think they could've made a better one. If anything, he suffers from his lack of characterization, but IDW and Devastation made him lovable. Ended up getting him after replaying Devastation (apparently he's the second-favourite char for people to play as), despite the fact that I'll be getting Red Alert. Sideswipe is just so sleek and SCREAMS "action" in both modes.Haven't found wave 2 yet. One anon repainted Prowl nicely, might think about it more.>Autobot thing is off-centerprobs my main qualmKeep us posted anon~
>>7538862Yeah, new things scare me too.
>>7538874Oh for sure I'll update once I get whoever I decide, which is probably gonna be Sideswipe after what all you guys said. I'm also getting Kickback, Cosmos, and Tailgate in too so I'll probably have something to say about them.
>>7538874>How easily does the thing pop offIt literally only pops off during transformation, you have to intentionally be trying to remove it to get it off in robot or jet modes.
>>7538883*whomeverHeh>Kickback>got Bombshell bc tfg told me too, but he's underwhelming>hesitated on Kickback bc do I want all the insecticons, and Shrapnel was from long ago>Shrapnel got re-released, but do I want all the insecticons, and Kickback was from long agoGrrrrr, let us know how the rubber head is. Cosmos is p solid, altho the TR one was more difficult to tab in than the T30 version>>7538899Hmm, what about the aesthetic? And being a detatchable shellformer - a flaw or a surprisingly neat gimmick?
>>7538874In my opinion he's the best CHUG Starscream yet. The chest is unfortunately pretty loose during transformation, but on my copy it stays firmly in place when plugged in for either mode. I dunno if others aren't so sturdy, but mine's okay. There's a fix that can be done, but it involves getting an appropriately-sized pin too. I've heard rumours of a running change that fixes the chest but no confirmation.Techno-detaily bits aren't that bad in person, but he does look a little Underbase-y.Where the figure really shines is articulation. Double-jointed elbows, wrist swivels, ankle tilts, butterfly joints at the shoulders, the wings can be angled to allow his arms to move properly, and he has a waist swivel.The transformation is also pretty ingenious, and he manages to mostly avoid Aerialbot syndrome.Overall I recommend him greatly. You're really not going to find a better version unless you're taking the 3P plunge or you're one of those people that still likes the Classics mold.
>>7538907i wonder if you would still have the same mindset when they release F-15 starscream lateri'd rather shit on siege starscream now
>>7538903Yeah I got pretty lucky with Kickback since i got him and Cosmos gor a really good price on r/transformerstrading. I already have Shrapnel from POTP. But Bombshell is going to be pretty tough to get since all I see on Ebay are either double the price or a chinese scam. Also is Kickback's entire head rubber or just the antennae?
>>7538924I mean, if they do an F-15 Starscream that's a Voyager and is as well-articulated as the Siege figure I'll take it, but then the Siege figure would still be second best.
>>7538907Hmmmmmmmm, I have classics SS somewhere, but he's good as a display piece at best.>he does look a little Underbase-y.Ehhh>I've heard rumours of a running change that fixes the chest but no confirmation.Canada takes a while to get stuff, so I'll keep my ear on the ground>Where the figure really shines is articulation.FUCK that's the best part about the figure though!>The transformation is also pretty ingenious, and he manages to mostly avoid Aerialbot syndromeEven though his alt mode is pretty garbage! Maybe I'll warm up to it though... Soundwave's too broken-glassed and Shockwave is too expensive, lest he and Magnus shelfwarm...>>7538930Go back to "there" but I'll come too. So jealous.>Bombshell is going to be pretty toughSorry to hear that. I lucked out on Shockwave and Viper from some rando mall toy store, so maybe check those now and then.I THINK it's the entire insect head but not too sure.. There's also transparent plastic bits but someone who owns the figure and knows why these are issues might be able to help better, I'm mostly just parroting /toy/.>tfw skipped out on TR Rod and Kup when /toy/ said it was bad, but they weren't on the shelves when /toy/ changed their mindLucked out at TFcon but still. Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you
>>7538949Nice on grabing the Viper, managed to grab mine from a Toy's R us last year overseas
>>7538664Where can I find this video?
>>7538603You could make a few decent bucks on the market reselling any toy that had a construction vehicle alt mode, at least.
President dictates Optimus must at some point crash if he wears this.
>>7539042>Alternate take of RotF where Optimus dismembers Starscream instead of Jetfire to get his wing-armor upgrade.
>>7539042>>7539044>>7539046will these ones be good?
>>7539046>>7539044>>7539042We already have pictures of all these things in their different modes. Cool concept, but poor implementation/not enough budget.
>>7538763I was really surprised when I found Siege Magnus trailer doesn't turn into a base.
>>7539054For reference, said pictures:
>>7539080The other ones of the line:
>>7539086wow it's a cybverse starscream with knees
>>7539091Also a Shockwave
>>7539094Almost forgot this one.
>>7539097These things are so bizarre.>You know what the Trex guy named Grimlock needs? Garbage truck power armor!
>>7539103Why did he kill Scoop and wear his corpse as armor?
>>7539105That’s just his way of showing he cares.
>>7539114Seriously, never be friends with Starscream. He is unreasonably bad at it.
>>7539116>keep Metalhawk away from any StarscreamDuly noted. Windblade has sheer dumb luck.
>>7539114Someone really has to do this meme with Starscream and Metalhawk.It’s literally exactly what happened in the comic.
>>7539121>I have a Metalhawk.Give me a couple of days.
>>7539116>Be friends with Starscream>He turns you into Targetmasters without your consent
>>7539118>Duly noted. Windblade has sheer dumb luckNah, he still tried to kill her pretty hard before the developed a mutually blackmail insured working relationship.Also he literally said that if she died and he didn’t have an ironclad alibi, Chromia would straight up murder him regardless of what he claimed happened.In Wheeljack’s case, he kind of idealized Wheeljack trusting him, and then had one sided conversations at his comatosed body until he thought of them as friends.And Bumblebee was an intangible hallucination only he could see, which Starsceem believed was just a manifestation of his subconscious conscience/doubt, on account of Bee being known to be dead at the time.So basically the only friendships Starsceam can stabilely maintain are under extremely extenuating circumstances.
>>7539080out of all of the ones you posted, it's weird that the Bumblebee one is the one that looks fucking sick
>>7539116Why is it that Starscream is the only well-written character in the entire run of IDW?
>>7539154Part of that is because its the only one with basic limb and head articulation.
>>7539158because you're a homophobic twat who hates gay robots
>>7538862Oh they were.
>>7538856so what's his name? iacon?
>>7538840>unrealistic>just use photoshop broLeast intelligent post I’ve read all month. Can you actually not comprehend the point of a play set, and how much potential Transformers has to tackle the concept with?
>>7539081I genuinely quite like this line. Might get Jetfire to do pic related, but the head would be hard.Also why does my boy Prowl always get fucked over?
Is $120 a decent price for POTP Predaking? Heard a lot bad reviews but I am kinda interested on picking it up
>>7539287Wait for the full set of WeiJiang KOs to come out and see how it is. They seem to be changing a lot of stuff on it.
Why is every titan class figure dirt cheap except Metroplex?
>>7539308God hates me, that’s why
>>7539284More digibashes, please.>>7539308I feel you.
>>7539308He hitted the discount bin, you're just late to the party.
>>7539080IM DEFINITELY BUYING THIS even if it looks like junk in real lifei wonder if you can put it on regular action figures.
Bought the China version of LGEX Big Powered, cause it was 140 SGD after shipping.
Everything seem close to what I saw in the reviews. Loose Sonic Bomber hip, loose Dai Atlas waist, Roadfire has a loose TM ball joint, etc. The only issue is that the paintjob quality doesn't seem that good, there's blurry edges and stray streaks of paint.
The worst qc defect is Roadfire having nipple herpes, I guess that's a good thing.
>>7539335Link to China version?
>>7539341My JP atlas also have some paint issues, but the biggest qci the set were roadfire ejecting waist and sanic boomber loose hips.
>>7539075>>7539078>>7539080>>7539081>>7539083>>7539085>>7539086>>7539091>>7539097I actually like these and their gimmick. Makes me think of of those Imaginext MMPR toys that armor up. (Which I gotta say why didn't they make a Megazord that could be armored with the Dragonzord? It would've been perfect.)
>>7539313Hopefully this will actually be possible to mod into being real.
>>7539350>roadfire ejecting waist and sanic boomber loose hips.Same thing on mine>>7539346Got it from taobao, all the ones there are the China version. If you see listings on ebay or ali that are that cheap, from China, listed in Apr/May, it's probably the China version too.
What a genuinely awful character
>>7539097So, who’s got the best helmet?
>>7539412It's a toss up between Optimus and Megatron.
>>7539412Grimlock, Optimus and BeeProwl just hurts
>>7539428He had too many donuts
>>7539379>a better looking roadfire base mode than the officialthanks man
>>7539315>hittedFucking ESL faggots
>>7539515The light purple on the arms looks shoped.
>>7538805You'd think with stuff like Metroplex and Trypticon we'd get new bases to interact with them. I would have loved to buy new micromaster bases. Guess I'll have to track down some older ones off ebay.
>>7539508If someone makes a black rubber condom to go over her abdomen, would you buy it?
>>7539508The abdomen looks slightly less bad than first shown, I think
>>7539508>i-it's just mistransformed!
>>7539550Some Siege-style firing effect parts for the spider legs would have been neat.
>>7539545It was. It actually look a bit better, here.And looking at >>7539512>>7539508It look like the thighs effectively have some transforming panels.Excellent robot mode, passable spider mode. I remember the time when people bitched abou MP3 because the robot mode had tigh kibble to make the alt-mode more realistic.
>>7539535the spider leg attachments are better placed too.
>>7539568I don't even blink at some mode having a flaw (especially a beast mode). Shit, how many Optimus Prime toys have truck modes that just give up at his legs? Usually with his big FAT robot crotch sticking out if you look at the truck from any angle that isn't front on?
>>7538720Casting my vote for Prowl, Sideswipe as a close 2nd
>>7539434yeah. Either that or chromosomes...
Maybe they purposely misstransform them at show so that people bitch less when the official pics actually come out.
I genuinely wonder how Mainframe got Blackarachnia's show design out of this fucking thing.
>>7539594They looked at a big titty dancer and went with that instead.
Yup, the exposition one was misstranformed. Mostly panel alignments.The show-model didn't have the gold part, but I can't deny it gives the mold a nice accent.
>>7539600>Not show accurateDead on arrival. How will Takara ever recover?
>>7539602By making easy money with main line sales
>>7539607>Takara>Making moneyPick one & only one
>Get nearly the whole cast of 1984 G1 in siege>retards still want the same characters in part 2 because of “muh earf modes” “muh sunbow”You people are a cancer
>>7539602It's 100$ on Amazone.jp
>>7539595Gonna assume they were lonely men.Probably why they also modeled her Transmetal form with her chestplate removed.
>>7539616they just knew they could write off their trips to the strip club as business expenses.
>>7539616>knew how to use computers in the mid 90sNo shit they were
>>7539536>>7539551Nice to see they've corrected the color of her feet. They blend in better in beast mode now.
>>7539602By btfoing 3p
>>7539657Megatron is a white supremacist: confirmed.
>>7539099It's amazing the kind of neat shit toy designers come up with when they aren't predisposed to only portraying garbage from a 30-year-old toy cartoon.
>>7539692He isn't. He is saying qualia wamboyou need to make it on the other side for the sign to stand for white power.
>>7539697The other side actually stand for White Pounding. It's sign to say you are okay with Race Mixing.
>>7539524Every step that went into this character's evolution past the original toy is pic related.
>>7539692>>7539697>>7539700I fucking love 4chan.
>>7539568>I remember the time when people bitched abou MP3 because the robot mode had tigh kibble to make the alt-mode more realistic.The funny part was when Takara realized the people bitching were right and they completely removed the thigh kibble for the MP-11 re-tool and both the jet and robot modes looked better for it. Some of us would just prefer more balance or compromise overall, instead of Takara getting autistically fixated on being accurate in one mode to such a degree that it results in ugly kibble, retarded engineering, or both.It's sad that the MP collection has gone from a line of toys that were so expensive and complex that people joked about only displaying them in one mode and never transforming them, to a line of toys where that's so widely the case that Takara has just embraced it and stopped caring.
Ew, /pol/'s leaking.
>>7539521>them shoulder cannonsSo, we're getting all the Datsun brothers?
>>7539716Smokescreen was already announced as a Generations Selects exclusive (repaint of Barry), Bluestreak was at the preview for the 35th anniversary line as a card/drawing..
>>7539081Someone needs to mod that into a Mammoth tank from C&C.
