First for Hot Rod whom I loveI drew this!>>7636619>tfw both the person mode and the gun mode got sacrificed for ???>>7636628Woah, how did you get him to do like that
Still more batbit instructions/group art images:
Some cartoon comparisons.
Clearly superior to the combiner, but not sure about the classics, they're so different they could pass for different characters.
Omega looks nice, but I'd change the yellow chest window and clear plastic claw, miss you takara.
Beast Wars come back when?
>>7636792that entire back spoiler thing is laughable
>>7636802I would have at least turned the upper arm chunks into missile launchers or something other than just egregious nondescript blocks
>voiced more tfwhat did Aoi Yuuki mean by this
>>7636817Is this toy really that bad?
>>7636883It's not bad actually because it's mostly reused engineering from the fairly decent RID15 mold, just that it's lacking her signature weapon in place of some gimmicky backpack
Orthia is the first combiner that took 3 lines to fucking complete
>>7636994Bruticus was released in combiner wars. Even the amazon exclusive shuttle blastoff went under the combiner wars line despite coming out years later.
>>7636994Done in one.
>>7636997I meant the hasbro one technically speaking. He was sold as a "Prime wars trilogy" figure iirc
>End up 2 Smashdowns, and 2 Calibursts due to Amazon losing a package, sending a second order, then the lost package reappearing out of nowhere.>Only paid 7 bucks for all of itWhy can't I get this luck with stuff like Jetfire, or a Titan.
>>7636662Fish are jumping today, huh Danno?
I’m glad that Commander class Jetfire is getting slammed in reviews. For a little bit more you can get a far more superior and accurate jetfire from third parties. I hope this thing fucking rots on the shelves and hasbro makes it the first and the last of its size class. I hope they finally farm the transformers license out to other companies like Mattel did with MOTU and Super 7.
>>7637050I had it on preorder along with Omega Supreme, but I'm probably going to cancel the order for both since I can get a perfectly good Jetfire elsewhere and Mini Sentry does the job of being Omega without taking up half my house.
>>7637050>I hope they finally farm the transformers license out to other companies like Mattel did with MOTU and Super 7.Like who? They are not going to license to third parties, and it's not like any company can even do transforming figures at even current Cyberverse quality.
>>7637050>Jetfire is getting slammed in reviewsReally? What's so bad about it? I thought it looked great in all the photos, and an anon here said it was excellent. I'm tempted to buy it and I don't even care for Jetfire and I find his aesthetic to be rather bland, but it just looks like a good fuckin' toy.
What are some figures that you feel like everybody hates but you?
>>7637050This. I'm happy enough with my T30 jetfire that i dont need to spend $80+ on him. I got him for about 20 and got him custom articulated hands for about half that. When you include everything needed to make those mods he still costs less than Siege Jetfire. Thats my issue with this line. Before 2012 it felt like you were paying $10 for a $15 toy, now it just feels like you're paying $20 for a $15 toy. It's just not worth the money especially since the line is probably getting scalped into oblivion and finding them in stores is impossible unless you live in the US
>>7637069I love headmaster Hot Rod. And honestly the MP seems to do nothing but catch shit from people for having a chest that's the wrong shape or some such bullshit, but I never cared about accuracy so whatevs.
>>7637070Wow that looks really good, you're tempting me to try and find one.
>>7637081This isn't my one but I'm in the middle of changing the hands. Not that hard reallyhttps://youtu.be/SSCXlT8lrRg
>>7636800I just hate the overwhelming amount of clear plastic on the chest, and it's even worse since most of it just ended up painted over, all for that stupid clear yellow window.Something as simple as Siege Voyager Prime's window's would have been fine.
>>7637063 I have him and he's great. Ignore the fags shitting on it. There are a few issues with certain things not tabbing in as strongly as they should be otherwise the toy itself is solid. Robot mode looks great and has good articulation, transformation is simple but fun, and the jet mode looks great. Plus all the little gimmicks show the thing had a lot of love put in it. My biggest gripe is that he feels pretty light for the size but other than that I love him.
>>7637099Why are people so triggered by clear plastic? I like it, it adds depth and visual variety. I don't like figures that look like they're just carved out of a single chunk of material.
Local comic shop is selling Countdown and his rocket base for $100 bucks and it looks like it’s complete because it has a bag of black ramps and panels as well as the helipad right next to it.I’m thinking of getting it because the base could be used for modern micromasters.Is there any fragile plastic shit I should be aware of like gps or anything?
>>7637112Because it's weaker than typical ABS which means it's prone to breaking easily, especially when lots of friction is applied to it.
>>7637112Because it's pointless if it's not used efficiently. Having a whole chunk molded in clear plastic, then painted over completely makes the use of clear plastic a complete waste of time since you won't see it.At least Trypticon's clear plastic was used well. Imagine if they painted green all the clear plastic bits, save the clear plastic door
>>7637113Age, plastic starts getting more brittle with time. You could buy it, but you have to be really careful with it since it's a set that's about 30 years old at this point.
>>7637114I have literally never had any clear plastic break on any toy I've owned since I stopped smashing them into each other when I was 10-years-old.>>7637116>being triggered about efficiencyIt makes no difference in the final product, though. And chances are, it WAS used efficiently. It's often cheaper and easier to mold a single piece and paint it than it is to mold multiple pieces and join them together during the assembly line. You're literally getting mad over something that both a.) doesn't matter and b.) is wrong anyway
I thought my shelves would last me until wfc part 2. I don’t think it will last me past wave 3.
>>7637120I'm begging you, please stop posting your clusterfuck of a collection. It's literally the worst I've ever seen.
>>7637119It matters when that section painted also works as a ramp that clips into the chest. Guess what happens to paint that goes over pegs or tabs?
>>7637069I've had Rodimus Unicronus in my cart forever but just haven't pulled the trigger on him.
>>7637127None of the painted parts seem to have any pegs or tabs, though. So it looks like nothing happens.
>>7637123It’s the guy who the fancy website faggots tried to force into the witness protection program so he would have to legally give up his transformers since you can’t take anything with you and your items get sold off and goes back to the government. They tried to pretend to be mafia members and his dad was a fucking federal agent
>>7637131Are you blind? Look again. That entire rap is clear plastic, and you can see tabs and pegs right there.
>>7637076And the gun is his gf.
>>7637135I see two pegs that even if they do chip, you won't be able to see them in any other modes. Only an autist would care about this.
>>7637137Where do you think you are?
>>7637137>chipOr snap like most clear plastic pegs
>>7637132Fucking what? I need all the details.
>>7636800>yellow chest autistHere we go again
>>7637141I have seriously never snapped a clear plastic peg in my life, and two of my favorite recent figures (LG Chromedome and Hot Rod) both use them. And those aren't even pegs, they're flat tabs, which should be even MORE fragile. You gotta be a major fuckin' hamhander to snap off a a round peg like that and then blame it on the plastic.
They have shampoo bottle Shatter on sale at my local Walmart. Convince me why I shouldn't buy it.For what is worth, the Bumblebee shampoo bottles look quite nice compared to shampoo bottles from previous lines.
>>7636800That hip/thigh area is ugly.
>>7637163All of Omega Supreme is ugly. It's a fucking massive, bland, ugly-looking robot that people only keep clamoring for out of nostalgia.
>>7636800>>7637163What happened? The prototype had different hips and thighs that fit much better with the rest of the design.
>>7637174Looks like the angle is playing tricks on us.
>>7637174He's advertised as 24 inches, 61 cm. So at least his wings should be higher than TFM's head.
>>7637174Could be mistransformed, or maybe they did it for articulation. Might also be drop test related.
I didn't realize they changed the hips. I knew something was off when I saw the color pics, but now it's so obvious.I'm not really sure I want it now.
>>7637213The new hip moves differently compared to the prototype. Only the inside of hips move, not the outside, while the prototype it was the whole hip.If the whole hip moving was an issue, they could have just redone the hip from the proto to move like the finished figure.
>>7636817What if windblade went ウェヒヒヒ?
>>7637207That edit was done with this photo as reference.>>7637224Wouldn't be the first time.
>>7637211>mistransforming magically changes the shape of a solid, molded piece of plasticbaka
>>7637235My bad, the prototype pic was tiny, here.
>>7637240Nice edit. I think part of what I don't like isn't just the shape of the new hips, but how they bring the legs closer together and the thighs taper in to accommodate them.
>>7637222is that the sound of laughing or the Japanese version of SWOSH SWOSH SWOSH
Finally got my order of Smashdown and Caliburst. Smashdown's nice, but turns out the handle doesn't do anything for Smashdown in robot mode (the wiki mentioned using an arm to store it, but it doesn't really work), the hands aren't big enough to grab the handle without stressing it out, and the peg holes end up on the legs in robot mode.So just, leave it on his ass or not.
>>7637240>Elbows are now thinner>That weird gap on the upper armIt's like he went from hunk, to chump.
>>7637297Interesting...I honestly just thought it was intended to be a tail
>>7637063His stupid wings don't stay straight in jet mode, the car parked on top of it is way too big, typical hasbro QC, too god damn big, effect parts are nice but really don't come with enough extra bits, armor upgrade is super minorI'll stick with my Classics mold desu
>>7637156You don't have to just buy things for the sake of buying thingsIgnore the addiction
>>7636656Look at who arrived today.I'll take another pic when I have them set up.
>>7637297Tfwiki makes shit up all the time. I’d bet half the “undocumented features” on there are actually just the one guy who writes the wiki jamming parts in where they don’t belong.
>>7637343God that art on the boxes looks like dogshit, I can't even tell who's who. Fucking awful designs.
>>7637348That's sadly how they find this stuff. There's some legit cool things that show up because someone messed with a figure, like the proper combined gun mode for T30 Scoops targetmasters that's more solid than the official that showed up in the instructions.
>>7637343Why would you buy five of the same character? Weird.
>>7637343So I gather you played the Decepticons DS game and loved it?
>>7637282>We are the knights who say Nee!
Ok I've had him a few days now, transformed him a dozen times or so and have a pretty good feel of his quality. Ask me anything.
>>7637358>>7637362I won't say the designs are amazing or anything but a part of me still enjoys the forms bayformers film and I wanted to collect the Decepticon team. You do you anon.>>7637368I actually did play that when I was younger, it's actually a pretty solid game but I mainly just dicked getting new alt modes.
>>7637376*The first bayformers filmThat's what I get for speed typing.
>>7637374Is he good or bad?
>>7637374>Ask me anything.Where are the bodies buried?
>>7637374Is it true it's possible to tickle the Chernobyl elephants foot and live?
>>7637380I personally really like him. He has some issues here and there, like certain parts could've been secured better in both modes and ratchets seeming to be not the best, he's easily my favorite of the line. I love how big he is.
>>7637374Highlight all the bad things, then the good things.
>>7637384Guess your post number and I'll tell you.>>7637387Yes but you won't live for long after. And your hand would probably melt, shit is still hot.
>>7637376They should do another one like that, GTA gameplay and Transformers go hand in hand.
>>7637381Coolio, thanks for the info!I love learning new Japanese stuff.
>>7636520Alternative Orthia configuration
>>7637070Damn... that looks outstanding. I collect Legends scale figures... I had been tempted to get this Jetfire to go with my little guys, but this pushed me over the edge... I am DEFINITELY getting that guy now.
>>7637413Vicky a best
>>7637389It'll be easier to list the objectively bad things because they're not really subjective. >TolerancesSome things don't really peg or pin into place as tightly as I'd like. For example, you fold up his arms into his body for transformation, but the panel that holds the arms in place in robot mode does not peg in very tightly. The ratchets in the shoulders are so right that you can unpeg the arms a little too easily. Same for his wrists, they should've tabbed a bit more securely. But his ankle rockers are super tight when you peg them in for alt mode. You really have to apply a lot of force to unpeg them for robot mode. >Plastic qualityIt feels a little weak to me honestly. Not any worse than the rest of the line mind you, but I guess I expected a little more for and $80 toy. He's a little light because of this but it isn't awful, I'm not afraid of outright breaking anything on him. >Ratchets The ratchets honestly don't feel like the best quality. I'm curious to see if they'll last. The elbows and hips are my particular concerns. The rest of the ratchets feel fine. >The colors The colors on certain areas like his legs starts as a Stark white but slowly fades to a more off white color. I get what they were going for, trying to maybe simulate weathering from spaceflight. I don't mind it but others may dislike it. Good parts next post...
>>7637417The squad and also Chromia.
Is Top Coat meant to protect a paintjob, or just add a glossy effect to it?
>>7637423Car squad, plus Chromia.
Clearer Bluestreak stock images
>>7637428Bluestreak looks pretty good in all modes. I dislike the mold, but it kinda works in his colors.Guess I'll only own a Smokescreen when I finally get a Smokescreen with Dreadwing from G2.
>>7637424Both. If you don't want it to be glossy there's Matte finish versions or matting additives.
>>7637431Someone get on digibashing the obligatory blue-Bluestreak version of this.
>>7637434The windows blend together nicely with his hood color.
>>7636656>Gurla new femformer? I've been a bit disconnected this past months, so I want to know if we had some females announced/released
>>7637416The good:>The designOk it doesn't matter if you like Jetfire or Skyfire because they have both looks down. Skyfire looks nice and cartoon accurate which is awesome but his armor gimmick is totally the original Jetfire toy. And the way his mask stores and pegs onto his head is great.>GimmicksHoly shit this guy's has so many cool little features. The armor up ability is one, the swappable faction symbol, the 5mm peg hole collapsing into his hand when it's opened up, the cockpit opening up, handle bars for his Bros to hang onto, and this blast effects. Those things are going to be so versitile in my displays. He just does so many cool things. >ArticulationGoddamn this guy is impressive. Double jointed elbows, hand articulation, waste articulation, ankle rockers. They really gave this guy the treatment. He just works so well and poses like q champ. >SizeOk he's huge. So huge. Too huge? Not in my opinion. Especially since he is supposed to be the Autobot's transport. I personally think he's just right in size. >TransformationHis transformation is pretty simple but it's very satisfying. Nothing overly complex but still fun to do. And his jet mode looks amazing. I'm really having trouble deciding which mode to keep him in. I love his alt mode, his unarmored and armored looks. I don't know how I'm going to display him, plus he's too big for my current TF shelf.
>>7637434Honestly, I feel the red looks better,
>>7637443Neon Generation 2 Victorion
>>7637434He actually looks really nice, except for the damn legs.
>>7637458man loss is getting more and more abstract these days
>>7636786Damn. Solid transformation, it makes some of the early ones look like shit. I hate the curved panels that end up as chest plates.
>>7637463Man I kinda liked how Bluestreak looked in bot mode, but that care looks like total shit.
>>7637472It looks like a shoe. People have been saying this since Prowl.
>>7637463...when are we going back to earth alt modes
>>7637477They also have proportion issues, but I like the headsculpts so made some headswaps.
>>7637069It really isn’t a terrible figure, the Hot Rod portion is great, I don’t even mind the shoulder issue that much, could be better yes but what I hate is that headsculpt... I understand leadership burdens & all that but it’s really pathetic... like he finally divorced Arcee but he is still Cuckrod so he’s paying child support for everyone else’s kids. It’s terrible...
>>7637485Universe:>Best alt mode, worst robot modeCW:>excellent proportions, decent altmode, but inaccurate and lacking articulation on top of being a retoolSiege:>Accurate but weird proportions and bad car modeThey never will just give me what I want at this size class will they
>>7637509There's the Cyberverse ones which are a 75% in my opinion.
>>7637445You blued the wrong bits.
>>7637519Yeah but that has only the bare minimum articulation
>>7637519He REALY needed Arcee to stick around and continue stealing all his donuts.
The sides of the tower can be pretty brittle because the hinges are so tight. I get scared every time I transform mine because they are so long and thing and creak when transforming.
>>7637549Chromia won't even look at them.
>>7637549I literally want a fat prowl toy now. Re-engineer the mold to make him look fat.
>>7637472I dunno man I like how the windshield meshes with the hood. Like some futuristic concept car.
>>7637343Here they are all posed together.Got to say I'm really impressed with them, very good details in robot mode and I love that they all scale.Only downsides is Blackout is very limited with his posibility but it's understandable with his design and size.Now I just got to wait for movie 1 Megs.
>>7637428So where are they gonna sell this?
>>7637603We don't know. There's a whole bunch of stuff that we know about that we still have no clue how Hasbro will release.
>>7637481Looks pretty earthy to me. The prowl mold that is.
>>7637472>>7637477I fixed him. now he looks cool in car mode
>>7637613No he looks like a LIGHT UP SHOE
>>7637618nuh uhhe looks like a badass police car now that prowl sucks
Anyone remember the guy wanting a new clench, and there was discussion of turning Springer into one?Well, here's an example of the cab portion's position if he's still around.Shouldn't be super hard, it's mostly just needing panels on top of existing parts. Just glue on the clench "shell" if you will. The hard part will be the grill, which would need to split apart and fit onto the shoulders. Springer's shoulders do swing out for the transformation, so it might be doable.Or wait for the next wfc line and try one of those. Who knows, if we get another sandstorm, that might work better.Good luck
>>7637621I for one would use the KO warbotron onslaught since it has the shoulders and vehicle mode to pull it off
>>7637402It's the onomatopoeia for Madoka Kaname's giggle (a character voiced by Aoi Yuuki)
>>7637069TLK Snarl, though that might be more of a case on no one cares about it rather than hates
>Want to buy Cyberjets and similar toys like Megaplex, BW II Dirge, etc..>Variantions of these molds either go for too much, or are missing things (for some reason, most Megaplex and Dirge molds are missing their guns despite the legs having storage for them).
>>7637358>>7637362hoi doi such funny
>>7637592Pretty sure there is a movie 1 leader class Megatron coming out next year so you won't have to wait that long, anon.
>>7637592Yes, they all look good. Gets me nostalgic.
>>7637624What will this madwoman voice next?!
>>7637656She also voiced Eevee!
>>7637656I dunno, but does anyone have any clips of her voicing Shatter? It seems like such an odd choice of role for her and I'd love to hear her take on the character.
>>7637659She's done evil voices, like Clementine from Overlord.
I hope there's a new Optimus in WFC 2 or 3, cause the Seige Primes aren't doing anything for me.
>>7637671If Shatter comes close to how she sounds as Clementine, that would be pretty fantastic.
>>7637050They should've done literally any other character.Jetfire's design is just ugly as fuck and no way worth 80 dollars.
>>7637687you are onions
>>7637694At least he's got layers.
>>7637687Why not? He's fantastic
>>7637694>>7637701His cybertronian vehicle mode is the only one in the line I can't get past, it's just too ugly. Even Soundwave turning into a brick bothers me less.
>>7637704I'm not a fan of the little top bit of the truck but other than that he's barely cybertronian imo. Most are like that except for like, soundwave
>>7637704It helps coming to terms with:a)It can be modded into a tape recorderb)The tape recorder is already a brick
>>7636817>Windblade voiced by Aoi YuukiDunno how but I completely saw that coming, maybe it's cause she was voiced by Erica Lindbeck in EiD
>>7637415>Babyfood vomit vs. proud peacock rainbowMegsy best.
>>7637425This is fucked-up. Shameless and somehow bizarrely sexist.
Anyone know a safe way to remove the battle damage paint from the siege figures? I love them but the battle damage is a bit much.
Just stumbled into this site. Is it legitimate? It feels way too good to be true.https://www.aberdeenroofingservices.comPlus the name is bizarre.
>>7637623Clench is wierd though, his entire back half is a weapons platform. So the truck mode has to have legs that stick straight up behind the cab.Ironically, rethinking Springer, if they strip out the helicopter parts, he'd work as a rodimus retool, if he gets a trailer.
>>7637797>This site has been posted across various forums, Facebook pages, etc, all asking "is it legit?"Methinks you're trolling for suckers
>>7637820No? I just found it looking for Beast Wars BB and Starscream. I'm assuming it's not, but it never hurts to ask.
>>7637592I don't know why but over the years I've reallt grown to enjoy dorito Starscream design.
>>7637879Hmmm. CW version when?
>>7637879>dildus maximusKinda funny they still kept using that Prime even now.
>>7637041I guess so.
>>7637443Were the extra swords expensive to pick up?I actually really like that look.
>>7637704>Even Soundwave turning into a brick bothers me lessI'll be honest, I like the idea of the Decepticons refusing to adopt Earth modes. They're alien invaders, here to raze the planet to the ground, "disguises" aren't really necessary for that. (Besides, Soundwave, being the communications guy, would probably stay in orbit and launch his minions to the surface)My headcanon says Autobots take Earth modes because they don't want the public to know they exist: humans can't tell the difference between giant transforming robots and assume they're all bad.
>>7637132>>7637144>oh man I wish the drama from shit in those other websites would just stay there and leave us alo-I take everything back, I want to know immediately
>>7637656Godzilla and Optimus Prime
>>7637919That's pretty much how Megatron at least was in Prime and Bayverse at first.And yeah, I do like that idea sometimes but it all depends on the story being told. A lot of times Decepticons are on Earth to do more schemey things, in which case it would benefit to fly around as an Earth based jet as opposed to some alien craft, but yeah I don't mind either....like Cybertron modes, like Earth modes...and as a Soundwave fanboy I've basically long come to grips with the fact that you can't give him an incredibly cool altmode without changing the way he looks too much. I liked the idea of both a drone and a stealth bomber Soundwave, but neither lended themselves to looking very much like the the G1 character if that's the intentTo me the major pluses of a Soundwave are if it resembles the original Soundwave more than less, and if it has the minion gimmick, more so than having a cool alt mode.
>>7637957Yeah, I'll agree with that.
Battlemaster gun-mode Megatron fucking when
>>7637621I thought this was a lawnmower mode...
>>7637282the three heads make him look creepy.
>>7637348>one guy who writes the wiki jamming parts in where they don’t belong.
>>7637592>Starscream and the B-Team
>>7637443I like their sisters better.
You guys think it'd be possible to make a Treadshot from RID Megatronus?I'm thinking it could transform into some sort of turret that looks like a giant revolver.
>>7638040It annoys me it's not the combined mode that's named 'Mega-Empress'.
>>7638040Kinda waiting for Iron Factory to make their own Megatronia. Need a slim yet curvy ladybiner.
>>7636802What part of “semi-recognizable yet non-Earth mode vehicles” do you not understand anon?
>>7637069I like this figure, I just feel like it was 90% done: they could have hidden the fists better in car mode, and done a few other little tweaks to really make it shine, but no.
>>7638069What we need is a female baseformer.IDW gave us our first potential: Leviathan.
>>7637621I'm not the only one who sees Vacuum Cleaner Mode, right?
>>7638083You just want it to make a joke about "a lot of guys inside her" don't you?
>>7638130not him now but now I do
>>7637458Remind me who is the purple guy?
>>7638083which chapter was this from
>>7638140g1 take on barricade
>>7638143but also G1 Micromaster Barricade mixed in, hence all the purple
>>7637240The weird thing is the colored CGI Promo model still uses the Prototype thighsSomething must have really been wrong with the thighs if they got as far as using the CGI model for the promo shots.
>>7637957Man, I honestly love that Soundwave. I know that arm kibble is pretty egregious, but he's just so slick and sexy. One of my grails is the even sexier Soundblaster version. Hot damn.
>>7638141The boring one.
>>7638166(Because I’m not actually a dick, Issue #3)
>>7638144I don’t think that holds up, Micromaster Barricade had pink not purple.
>>7637147>liking G1 toy details is retardedshithead like you are why the toys are ugly and expensive now, Hasbro knows you'll pay out the ass for garbage
>>7637912Dunno, not my pics.
>>7638082I don't understand. Is Devastator supposed to be Titan sized? He's still pretty big on his own but he's no baseformer.
>>7638196>Is Devastator supposed to be Titan sized?Yes?
>>7638197And six Voyager scale dudes with way more parts and unique molds combining into one large solid lad being slightly smaller than a fucking baseformer is bad because...?
>>7638082They probably scale about right with the LEGO architecture Statue of Liberty.
>>7638212Who said it was bad? What are you rambling about?

>>7638143Got it, tnks anon
>>7638276Joke's on them, she's looking at her ass-boobs.
>>7638276I wish Elita and Chromia were the same scale and combined like Leozack and Jallguar to form the torso. Too bad no third party will do it. Even if they did the headsculpts woulndt be as aesthetically pleasing as the Hasbro figures.
>>7638338Agreed, the Hasbro headsculpts are pretty much perfect.
Doesn't it seem odd how easy it would be to simply take g1 figures and cut them up into having more articulation and they'd be just fine? Yet they always make things more complicated to attempt to achieve the same effect
>>7638374>how easy it wouldIt isn't tho, if it were that easy 3P would be doing it, you would be doing it.
>>7638374People like you are what holds toy engineering back. We are literal at peak Geewun redux levels for generations right now, what more do you want?
>>7638380>>7638383Yes but there is always something that prevents it from being as perfect, seems almost like a deliberate move to avoid something so simple
This guy is always reliable. So here are my predictions:Titan:>ScorponokCommander Class (he says it's going to suit omega pretty well):>Sky LynxRepaints:>Set of refraktor mimicking a realistic camera>Black Shockwave>Cybertron Hot Shot (remold o hound)Studio Series:>Remaining constructicons minus mixmaster and overlord>Blitzwing
>>7637113Don't do it, I'm trying to sell mine for 30 bucks but no one is biting.>>7637587Well Barricade got a double chin.
>>7638384Then grab a g1 junker and show us how easy it is to make it perfect.
>>7638154No, siege's cg models have had various changes
>>7638420I mean I posted an image for reason>>7638374You could take this, but add actual joints where needed and separate the legs, and would you want something more? Seems like that would just hinder them though because people wouldn't want to replace it with a new one
>>7638437How do you even manage to walk around without bumping into things with nostalgia goggles that heavy on?
>>7638424Have they? They've gotten heads wrong before, paint aps change, and mistransformations, but I didn't notice any significant changes to a part before.
>>7638196Devastator canonically has mass displacement abilities. he pretty much is the biggest combiner.i dont even thing predaking is bigger than him in fiction, depite their toy sizes.
>>7638374no it's just that they don't want to pay for licensing on some of the cars.
>>7638220>Omega and Devastator are taller than a 150 ft statueHow does everything even slightly related G1 end up not in scale with anything?
>>7638338That reminds me, Why the fuck didn't we get a Leozack or even a Legends Jallguar when they made the rest of them and "Deathsaurus" They didn't even give him his 3 piece staff.
>>7638498This fucking way. They just didn't give a shit back then.
>>7638507Because Japan didn't release the combiner. Since they ignored it, they didn't bother making Legends Leozack.
Is siege prowl shins entirely transparent plastic?
>>7638383Peiple that conplain about new MPs like MP44 and Hound are holding toy engineering back.
>>7638517Well if they were entirely transparent then you wouldn't be able to see them now would you
Apparently the next commander class is actually the Micromaster Rocket Base. Why the hell didn’t countdown come with this instead of being packed with Omega?I think it’s not going to have a robot mode and they’re going to give it a 1:1 update like Trypticon.
I wish there was a better proportioned version of this optimus with a better truck mode. I quite like it's design.
>>7638536You can still get him for $500 but there is a 3p of him in the works too
>>7638547I mostly like the halfway point of cybertron optimus and g1 optimus, and the chest design of the truck
>>7638531Sounds awful.Deathsaurus or gtfo.
>>7638531>Why the hell didn’t countdown come with this instead of being packed with Omega?They wanted to make you buy both.
>>7638567>Deathsaurus commander classNonono my wallet just make him and SS decent voyagers
>>7638584Him and star saber have always been fuckhuge compared to the rest of the bots. It would make far more sense to make them commander class than voyagers
>>7638588Yeah, this.I mean, if you wanna talk Victory bots that don't make sense at normal size classes, it's fucking Road Caesar. Are they three deluxe cars? Is Blacker a voyager? Do they just come with a bunch of partsforming arms? Do they add new members to the team (eg the Motorvators) and make them Comber Wars bots, but with two deluxes making a torso?
>>7637885Lets face it if funpub or botcon were still doing exclusives, we’d have this guy by now.
>>7638624And it'll be 100% clear plastic
>still can't find a Megatronia for cheaper than about £140 before Import TaxAll I want is a giant femdom combiner, not a findom combiner
>Literally every local dealer here put up Lancer for sale yesterday>Greenlight has to be ordered from Amazon Prime (US), no local release announced yet.I've got no idea if I should complete the set. Maybe I'll keep her in this form for the time being.
>>7638656>Local dealerWhere do you live?
>>7638220>the weight of Omega on Devastator doesn't topple a hollow copper statueAnd people still defend AHM. It boggles the mind.I'm not sure who I blame more for this page, McCarthy for brainfarting the idea onto a piece of paper like the rest of the series, or Guido for drawing Liberty in flawless condition despite taking an impact of several hundred thousand tons.
>>7638664Ah lucky. As a Mexican I'm really screwed with Lancer if I use an American or European country. Customs is a bitch with American packages, not so much Asian ones.
>>7638386>Commander Class Sky LynxEverybody over there is saying that, and they're trying to justify it by saying SL would be in scale to some cartoon size chart that puts him at the same size as the combiners... which CW Sky Lynx IS, because he's a combiner. If anything it's Predaking and Devastator that are out of scale.That guy says the Commander fits with Omega Supreme, but I think we're looking at it the wrong way. Countdown was part of the Micromaster Rocket Base, which was Star Saber's base.My money's on a Commander Star Saber.
>>7638672>the Commander fits with Omega Supreme>tfw Warden trolls everyone and presents commander class Guardians with Omega compatible ramps/wings.
>>7638735I think they'll make a Commander Class Optimus Prime next.
>>7638667If the statue had been destroyed by the impact, it wouldn't have been able to be pierced by Supreme's beam, hence proving that justice can also kill freedom even when your intentions are pure, as befits a mature comic for mature people such as ourselves.
>>7637428>Bluestreak>even though he has no blue on him whatsoever...
>>7637592now here's the real question, can you put them in Ginyu Force poses?
>>7638752It's an old turn of phrase. "Talking a blue streak," aka rambling, which Bluestreak does. I'm sure the diaclone deco inspired that personality quirk, but the name still makes sense in context.
>>7637957>and as a Soundwave fanboy I've basically long come to grips with the fact that you can't give him an incredibly cool altmode without changing the way he looks too much. I liked the idea of both a drone and a stealth bomber Soundwave, but neither lended themselves to looking very much like the the G1 character if that's the intentpersonally I think Animated made a good choice of Alt-Mode for Soundwave, but I also kinda like the idea of him being a Monoformer instead(and thus having no alt-mode at all), whether it be natural or from having consumed Nucleonwhich actually ties into ideas I've had about Shockwave being a former Monoformer too(hence why pretty much every version of him outside of G1, Alternators, and Animated have had mediocre alt-modes), maybe use Scioli's idea about Soundwave and Shockwave being brothers
>>7638765IDW not even once
>>7638768>IDW not even oncethe usage of a lot of IDW's concepts might have been mediocre but the concepts themselves are for the most part good
>>7638773>Transformer that doesn't transform>a good concept
>>7638775Gotta explain Action Masters somehow.Though corroded T-cogs from overconsumption of Nucleon works fine, IMO.
>>7638775eh it's been around in the franchise since Alpha Trion, not to mention many continuities have transformation as something that Cybertronians didn't do till quite a while after they were created[spoiler]also I'll admit I'm probably one of the few people on the planet who actually likes the Action Masters, the lack of elbow articulation and the imbalance between Autobot and Decepticon representation in the line are the only real flaws I have with them[/spoiler]
>>7638782and I forgot /toy/ doesn't do spoilers for some godforsaken reason
What downsides are there on MP Streak?There's a local guy selling it for a fair price, used condition.
>>7638386>Remaining constructicons minus mixmaster and overlordSo just Scrapper and Scavenger? I'm actually wondering how they'll make the latter work since the tracks to wheels could come out awkward.
>>7638782>>7638784Action masters are a chance to make them hella posable. If you simplify the engineering of the actual body/make everyone retools, it could be a cheap and ezpz line to churn out loadsa dudes. Maybe make them legends-size, include some obscure guys, even make them blind-boxed (which would suck but would also give Hasbro the financial incentive to make so many of them and include obscure fellows like they did Kreons) maybe include a handy code on the box for easy identifying)Probably not a popular opinion but please give me a chance HasbroI need money
>>7638645What about Vicky?
Latest buy, movie 1 Grindcore, aka Constructicon Prowl.
>>7638787I personally see them doing what the Legends class does. The vehicle mode has a lot of mass the robot doesn't really use, take advantage of that to just hide a set of wheels and then hide the treads in robot mode.As for combined mode, the wheels will probably rotate to be Devastator's big grinder drum, since it's too much mass to just come from Mixmaster. I'm also half expecting Scavenger to include at least some of the combined head.
So to those saying Rocket Base or Omega Sentinel would be the next commander class, you’re both right.Warden merged the two into a single entity. Omega Drones become the rocket base.$80 dollar army builder the fucking mad man
>>7638825Yep this is what I heard across the Facebook group as well. I have to wonder what’s they’re going to do with the base and robot mode though. It’s supposed to resemble the G1 toy in vehicle mode, but rocket base was mostly hollow with the tower forming the main platform, the only way I can see a robot mode happening is extreme ingenious parts forming or they go Grandus or Tor and just have the vehicle mode sit up and stick a robot head with a parts formed arms on it and call it a day.
>>7638835>A single toy that combines two literal who’s into one>it can also be reused for Grandus and Sky LynxCommander Class is best class, leader class is trash now.
>>7638820>>7638787I totally expect a legends style Scavenger transformation since he's going to be leader class, and there's no way rubber treads could turn into wheels and support all that plastic mass without deforming, if at all. I also expect a stand like what came with Rampage, which would be easier to affix to a solid plastic wheel assembly than a rubber one. There's even a 3p fig that is doing exactly what the second anon suggested. Hell even SS Longhaul and Rampage are slightly legends inspired in their transformations, so why not more?
>>7638847And the 3p in question, which also does the "scavenger robot wheels form parts of Devastator's head" thing too.
Triggerhappy's foot joint got really tight and squeaky for some reason, I opened and inspected his foot, but sort of fucked up the screw so probably won't be able to inspect him again today. Are there any causes or fixes for something like this? Trying to move it as much as possible, but squeak squeak...
>>7636817>>7637729Except Aoi Yuki is the Cyberverse version, RID2015 Windblade is Hitomi Nabatame in Japanese. also Erica Lindbeck playing Windblade is pretty awesome, i just wish she got to voice her more, i liked her more than Kristy Wu's version.
>>7638130It never even occurred to me.>>7638141Three, I think.>>7638166A painful truth.
>>7638227They were rivals because of their relationship before the Constructicons were Decepticons.>>7638264>That purple and orangeI knew it was familiar.
>>7638245If I ever get her, the first thing I'll do is paint that face silver
>>7638817Nice, I always liked how that mold looks. I especially like his "jackhammer gun" for some reason.
All if you clowns jerking off over anon's fanfics are going to get BTFO when next year's commander is actually revealed.
MPM-8 actually looks pretty good in the right colors.
>>7638918Looks to me like a black shadow retool
G2 devy is here.
>>7638788At the time, Action Masters (in theory) made since because toy engineering wasn't what it was now, so you could get a Megatron that was poseable and looked like his animation model. If you wanted a Megatron that could transform, you had one, but there was an alternative.They kinda fucked up on the execution since the new figures weren't really that posable or even accurate. Plus, they made the mistake of making characters who had no previous transforming version so you felt the missing element.
>>7638996>>7638998>Bootleg the Constructicons>Use the shitty Hasbro versions
>>7639000>start thinking about the boys that'd be reintroduced and whatnot>oh man they'd have to give Mainframe a transforming figure I mean Krok got one>tfw realizing that Hasblow would follow their religious policy of including an Optimus and a Megatron in every single line>realize that they might be super posable and niceHmm. I just want a nice Megatron whose robot looks like the front of MP Megs. Revoltech looked like a nice option back in the day, but they're expensive
>>7638996>can't even put the arms on right side upWho took this picture, Hasbro?
>>7639022The front of MP megs is not only fake but it's just a piece of plastic you clip on to his actual chest So if you want that, just fucking 3D print megatron's chest
>>7639045I mean his face/head and proportions/etcI like Siege Megs but something looks off
>>7639022I'm still waiting for someone reusing the mp faces on a voyager, it has been proven it can be done on a deluxe.
>>7639059>those translucent armsWhatever lightpipe gimmick they saddled you with, Megatron, it wasn't worth it.
>>7638735>Okay, but what if instead...
>>7639106Too based for this world.
>>7637240You guys can't be serious right now. It's the same damn mold. It's not adjusted for perspective, so you're lining up two images that don't belong together.Make the cgi prototype grayscale, it's the same mold as the render. lol
>>7638498Omega should be about 700 feet tall unless he radically changes size when he transforms to base mode. After all, his rocket seats several average-sized Transformers....Which has some worrying implications about Devastator. I usually work from the assumption that a combiner team increases their volume by a factor 10 when they merge, so their limb mode is about twice as tall as their robot mode; but even if Devastar's components are those huge mining vehicle things he'd end up way too small.>>7638909Is that a euphemism?>>7638918I pray you are right.
>>7637390>>7637407Well shit, now you gotta tell him
>>7638276where can you actually get Lancer? scalpers on ebay all want around 60 bucks for her and the only legit site I can find her listed is robot kingdom, where she already sold out. Is she set for a broader release later or something?
>>7645916All the small toy dealers in Singapore suddenly had stock of it last week with no prior PO or announcement. Whoever stocked Generation Selects (Red Swoop/Ricochet/Combat Meg) in your country will have it, i suppose.
