Old thread >>7687933Orders are already shipping from PSX.
>>7695400Holy shit this would be an instant buy for me
>>7695454I fucking laughed so hard.
Is that MMC Deadpool getting released or what?
>>7695845Oh weird I thought that was upsized.
>>7695845Like looking at any string of numbers, I'm led to ask -- what Prime is that?
>>7695896I don't knowI just don't knowThere's so manyIt's so tiring
>>7695896Geewunified bayformerized infringement-free not-Optimus Prime
>>7695720Sorry man, but that came out a week ago, and sold out as soon as it was listed.www.planetsteelexpress.com/R32SG/
>>7696010Also, I have a problem.
>>7695903>deal with it
>>7696011I see your collection drifts a certain way.
>>7696045*ba dum tiss*
>>7696140OK, that makes sense, them both being PE releases.
Is he "too small"?
>>7696191No.But I'm one of those people who don't really like how big Decepticons are.
>>7696197You're saying you don't kowtow to the Sunbow chart?!
>>7696011Really nice dude, I'm jealous.
>>7696191I'm ok with that size, especially since it looks like they're all different heights. Blackout is the only copterformer I can think of that should tower over most.
Speaking of Megatron
>>7696383Probably dig out my old gunpla stuff for this guy.
>>7696385Which megs is that?
>>7696011This is probably a dumb question, but is that mold actually good?
>>7696383>looks fantastic>£47 on KapowBandai and even Koto prices really spoil you, huh
>>7696011You planning to get Ratbat?
>>7696565Yes but it really needed ab crunch and the buttflap window kibble could have folded up better on the back despite the skirt look it was going for.
Not long till that random ass Asian convention starts, the teasers are trickling out(MS Soundwave)
>>7696614And MS Seekers (not to be confused with the Newage Seekers being revealed on the same day)
So I got my Flyfire from ShowZ today and out of the box I found a crack on the plastic that I can probably repair. The port where you attach tail fin also got a small fracture after installing the fin. Thank goodness it was not that expensive and it's not that noticeable but besides those 2 things, the plastic and build feels solid.
>>7696649Is there anyway to get a lot of cow bots? Even more those with nose rings?
>>7696694Why nose rings anon?
Man I remember when the DX9 van mold came out and I was so impressed... it's amazing how far we've come even since 2014.One of the most a interesting things to me about the evolution of transformers toys is that the technology hasn't noticeably changed much (it's still just plastic, screws, and pins), but the designs continue to get smarter and more innovative.
>>7696697I like how they look? Minotaurs are my jam.
>>7696723Minotaurs are top teir boyfriends ngl but I'm gonna drop the issue before I get /trash/yIt would be different at a hotel I suppose.
>>7696648>>7696649oh fuck he's cool
>>7696693>we wuz predaCANGs n sheeit
>>7696721Same, be needing to pick up a few of the recent Newage releases and soon.Love that their Ratchet has a swapable Marvel Comic Red helmet option.

>>7696973I thought they were doing the toy chest, when did they change it?
>>7696982Their doing both.
>>7696777that's some mass shifting voodoo
>>7696998>inb4 the toy chest and toon chest are somehow both still built into onslaught
>>7697021It's going to be 2 Onslaughts.
>>7696973Goddamn light-up eyes again. I already have to deal with Zeta standing here looking dead, I don't need it a second time around...
>>7697093Painted mine with gundam markers. Worked out great. If their going to go that route they should use the type of reflective paint FT used on their spreems eyes.
>>7697124Those are some damn good looking eyes.
>>7696721The availability of more precise plastics is more important than you realize. The right amount of flexibility is often key for certain types of joints as well as detail fidelityBasically, the tech advancements are mostly in the production side, not the product itself
>>7697128You can do it too my man! Just take the head apart, remove the eye piece, and paint it. Not that difficult and only takes 5min.
>>7697136First step would be track down some Gundam markers, though.
>>7697140Yeah, I didn't think about that til after I posted that. Being into gunpla helps sometimes with this hobby.https://hlj.com/gundam-marker-gundam-silver-gnzgm05https://hlj.com/gundam-marker-gundam-red-gnzgm07
>>7697154I'm going to try and track down if there's a hobby store local to here, save on shipping. But I'll leave the links open just in case, thanks.
jesus fucking christ that crab tank mode
I guess the show is starting
>>7697178>Basically an entirely new lookThese'll be interesting days.
>>7697182That's fucking creepy.>>7697183So big.
>>7697206Gettin Sheer Heart Attack vibes from that tank mode.
>>7697183What show is this?
>>7697206I see some peek-a-boo Tarnation down there.
>>7697178>>7697182>[Iron samurai series]I shit my pants and also came at the same time
well ok then
New Age's star scream. There seems to be some beam action effect parts on some of the stuff in the display.
Also the back.
>>7697245Sounds like a mess down there.>>7697248>>7697250Can't fault them on something new at least.
>>7697255Cone heads, megatron, and some of those effect parts with the rest of the NA stuff.
>>7697253>>7697255vs>>7696616A new age of legends wars.
He comes with a crown.
Zeta fucking blitzwing. They're really going for Toyworld's balls.
Megs with more effect parts. Looks like NA are doing more shit now. Effect parts, swapping hands, and diorama sets. Not sure what the blue blocks are in the back but they look like part of a base.
Wasting no time getting to the repaints.
>>7697271>>7697277>>7697280>>7697282That makes them look petty.
>>7697296That's a little jarring having the toy deco, but animation head.
>>7697178>>7697182lmao they tricked us I guess it wasnt star saber and victory leo after all
>>7697182I don't like the thin waist
>>7697182is this supposed to be bludgeon or megastorm?
>>7697224Oh shit Astrobots are finally showing up again.
>>7697248Cool, I liked this lil bastard
>>7697182Not the biggest fan of the colours, but I might be interested in a repaint, if they do one.>>7697178Neat change in design. On the radar. I'm liking this unique take on characters.
>>7697330I thought that the first one was looking like Master Made's, but it's not. Was really hoping that they'd be able to show more of their Devastator.
Magic Square's new stuff
>>7697347Great G1 accuracy from MS and NA. I'm not particularly interested in that anymore. Iron Factory's stylization and now samurai theme grabs my interest a lot more. The 2 aforementioned companies are making incredible looking figures though.
The lack of neck bothers me.
>>7697299Well if Toyworld did fuck them over, they deserve to be THAT petty.Just waiting for a Bobby sit down Saturday now. He will surely make one about this in 8 hours.
>>7697347>Megatron>Starscream / Seekers>Soundwave and ALL of the cassettes>Reflector[spoiler]>And a leg[/spoiler]
>>7697355>alien robots MUST have PRECISE human anatomy and proportions!
>>7697178>>7697182YOU FUCKS BETTER NOT PULL ANOTHER DJD AND MAKE US WAIT A YEAR AFTER ETA FOR THEM
>>7697355Well the model barely had any neck. He was pretty much based of the Creeper.
>>7697357Well tomorrow is already set for Seaspray VS, so we'll see if he comes along with his "If it teases the court" on it. To me, it looks petty because they have Bruticus, they have Superion, they have the Dinobots and all the other newer things. The only thing they don't have is Constructor and any of the earlier stuff like the Throttlebots. It's time to leave TW well enough alone and focus on something else.>>7697363They just need to make sure D.E.C. is done by...Dec(ember) and go from there.
>>7697372Well I think they want to destroy TW and leave no survivors but after that I'm so hyped for their Raiden.
>>7697182So how big is this likely to be?
>>7697384Maybe slightly larger than Tarn is?
>>7697384About ‘yay’ big?
>>7697391Are they smaller than normal IF figures or is the perspective here off? I assumed these guys, given the characters, would be a bit bigger than most IF, like at least Tarn sized, but they look tiny.
>>7696565I’m pretty fucking biased, but yes the mold is pretty good. Not perfect, but it’s an amazing combo of aesthetics and articulation that I can’t resist. I wish he had more wrist articulation, and ab crunch, and that the beta mold had retooled sheathes to give his vehicle big exhausts and allow him to have two revolvers instead of swords, but it’s not enough to ruin them. The figure has great balance despite being super top-heavy and having small ball-jointed feet. The kibble can get in the way, but the range on the balls and hinges allow the sheathes, cloak, and shoulders to get out of the way of almost any pose. So yeah, I’d recommend all of the molds.>>7696571Hell yeah. Even the innevitable convention exclusive recolor. I hope to see more images of it at this random convention.
Rest of IF display
>>7697182Holy Gurren Lagann batman
>>7697413what is with the tarnation on the right? His right arm is half-assed transformed.
>>7697404Silhouette of gorilla on the left
>>7697447>Bludgeon’s anorexic waist is both unhealthy and sets an unrealistic beauty standard.
>>7697451Gives him a pretty skeletal frame, which I assume is what they were going for.
>>7697182I hope they change his face to be painted white or silver.
>>7697422>>7697424>>7697429>>7697433>He claims what they're doing in China is the missing piece.
>>7697431Lol and Tyridium Hanger was just talking about this being potentially cancelled.
>>7697398Why are they still showcasing Kronos? Is that one with a lot of fixes?
>>7697431THE DREAM ISN'T DEAD?
>>7697182Fuck i would have preferred it being a 1/12 scale figure Iron Factory is too small.
>>7697430>>7697431>HobbyfreeHey wait that's from a 2018 convention, you sneaky motherfucker.
>>7697506Oh that's nice and clean.
>>7697508The dream is dead again
Magic Square. They are doing the camera too
and of course...
>>7697557What the fuck is Piss Magnus from?
>>7696721I think the one on the right looks better. But the one on the left is impressive.
It is placed beside the Toywolf toilet TFs, might be related. Also sauce for this batch http://tieba.baidu.com/p/6221465919
>>7697567Fuck that, who is cute musume behind on that image?
>>7697567Unfortunately, there isn't much people there due to the typhoon.
>>7697470Really nice deformation of the back legs, that's usually a weak point with cat/dogformers. The lion neck looks less stumpy than Perfect Effect's too.>>7697437Completely love the crazy torso and demon crab tank. I wish I liked the colors better for Bludgeon / any of his repaints
TFC's doing God Neptune.
>>7697178So long, MP version.
>>7697623 and that all black figure looks like one of the Satan boys. At least that is my guess.
>>7697623What's that Gridman thing in the back?
>>7697626I still don't know how i feel about the proportions on kadmosmy flame toys ss is due next week so i guess there's no reason to get it anyways
>>7697182I need this ganmen Bludgeon. I hope it's not going to be super expensive.
>>7697647Licensed model kit.
>>7697620Is that the Xtransbot's Motormaster?
>>7697413Does cliffjumper have additional weapons now? I think he only had a bazooka at previous shows.
>>7697347>>7697293I think NA Megs looks better, but MS Megs seems to have his shoulder joints in a much better place. Like NA Megs looks like he has the same issue as CW Megs.Really want to see those gun modes though. Also if that MS Megatron ends up good it better fucking come in MP scale.
>>7697557PISS MAGNUS AND EEVIL PRIME FUCK YEAH!
>>7697674>gun modesBetter pic of NA's hereMS is at >>7697562
>>7697675Oof the face. What about the Size? Taller than FT/Zeta or shorter?
>>7697558Obscure toy that was based on the scene in the movie where ultra magnus's face gets bathed with the warm, overflowing glow of the matrix.
>>7697681Do you really care? I don't.
>>7697694It's my money that I will spend so of course I care about what I will purchase. If you're going to give me one for free then I don't care how it looks like. It could look like your mom for all I care as long as I don't spend money on it.
>>7697604mmc is getting a fuckload of mileage out of the drift mold
>>7697681Seems like he's going to be traditional MP scale based on his look and the figure next to him, so expect MP10 size I think.
>>7697182Oh hello there.
>>7697271Jet mode looks a bit wonky, but I spend an unhealthy amount of time looking at the Phantom outside the museum I work at so I am biased (though that's an RAF Phantom which is slightly different from the US version). But for real he looks awesome.
>>7697719I want them to make a hot shot one.
>>7697182I need this NOW>>7697248unexpected, but pretty cool, though I need to see the head painted>>7697271I've been waiting for a movie "Blitzwing", but something seems off about this one
>>7697511they sure are getting crazy with repaints.Have they said anything about how the Starscream repaints will be available and if repaints like desert Bulldog will come with Starscream parts too?
>>7697557So much clear....
>>7697398Well slap my balls, they are there. Of course, it's with PMOP and not Devastator, but at least they've shown up.
>>7696973>fake Blast-Off chest painted onto toy-style chestplateEnd this fucking meme, it looks like shit. Make part of Blast-Off plug on there if you want that outdated Sunbow model so badly.
>>7697809Boy are you gonna feel silly when you read the two posts underneath the post you just replied to
>>7697820Not really. The point still stands: Make that chest style a piece of Blast-Off. It looks wrong painted on the toy chest.
>>7697809>fake Blast-Off chest painted onto toy-style chestplateNo, its a completly different piece.
>>7697836Huh. That's odd. Toon Brute is supposed to have a more rounded chest.
>>7697846They're doing two versions of onslaught that just changes out the chest piece as of right now. Both versions has the armor stored inside Onslaught.
Is there any generation toys stuff at this con?
>>7697422Its fucking oni tank from yugioh
>>7697178>>7697182These are really strange, but cool. I appreciate when companies are willing to think outside of the box.
>>7697675Yeah, that face looks off. Like one of those two opera masks>>7697681Gonna guess mp10 size based on that mpm movie sized hot rod next to him
>>7697317Feels like it's doing double-duty as both.
Not as crazy about this as some people, but she does look good. I feel like . making this arcee is almost vestigial at this point, it looks nothing like any Arcee.Making it an OC fembot without Arcee's colors would've been much better looking.
>>7697224I know they're not TFs, but anyone have any pics of the Astrobots on display? I haven't been able to find a gallery for this event.
>>7698059There's some speculation on TFW is that some may not have shown due to the inclement weather.
>>7698067Here's the thread in question, with lots of other pictures not linked here:https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/3rd-party-pictures-from-chinese-exhibition-10th-aug-2019.1179386/
>>7698067>>7698071Oh, that's too bad. Thanks for the info though! Do we know if this was a one day event?
>>7698074Yes 1 day. small convention
>>7697675Those feet bother me way more than they should.He has fake front view windows on his feet and has front view windows on his shins.
>>7697927The face does have that kind of look, doesn't it? Somewhat also reminds me of Big Spring.
Seems like Magic Square is releasing their own MP Megatron.
>>7698103Not so surprising, considering they did Prime. Where's the news coming from?
>>7698116Well they did an MP version of their legends leader with modified transformation that fits the mp scale. I was just assuming they would make one from the pictures of that Legends scale Megs lol.
>>7698009I just dont like G1 Arcees colors. Give me some pink and black, purple, champagne gold.
>>7697178Really digging the Matrix motifs on the sword hilt and the lion's head. Also hoping that [Iron Samurai Series] means they'll be remaking Drift soon.
>>7697182Shame it's >Iron FactoryAnd thus will be smaller and tighter than a Clinton's concubine because holy SHIT that's cool.
>>7697623>>7697645I think it’s Sinnertwin.
>>7698128Naw, I think Prime was a one shot deal. They're fully committed to the legends game. Besides I think 97% of people are satisfied with Takara megs. So there's no real market there.
>>7698212>Besides I think 97% of people are satisfied with Takara megsThe absolute state of TF collector taste
>>7698221Different anon but MP Megs does look decent but I wouldn't pay for it personally. If I could get a better 2019 version that is 3x cheaper from MS I would definitely go for it.
>>7698215>>7698218>>7698219>>7698256The aesthetic on these guys really reminds me of TFC's Seacons.I feels more like Zoids than the Predacons but I can dig that.
>>7697675>that faceI know RK is a tough act to follow but c'mon fellas.
>>7698285No shit I think the face made up like 75% of the reason why I bought Roadking.Good Menasor faces are just so rare, I don't get what the problem is.
>>7698256That is way too fucking big jesus christ why are transformers fans such size queens?
>>7698307Chinese have tiny hands
>>7698231Ive skipped on all mp megs because im over the gun form. Id be down for something that did the tank megs from devastation.
>>7698231If MP megs were like 90$ I'd probably get one just to help back up my criticisms of it. He's just too expensive, doesn't look good from most angles and has a hellish transformation.About the only thing I like about him is his legs. He's the first MP Megatron to get the legs right. Unfortunately it went full retard on the torso, when that was the one part 3P Megatrons actually had figured out.I also really don't like the chalky pastel-looking paint Takara uses now but that's a problem for every MP since Inferno. At least Inferno was actually good though.
>>7698326I never owned any MP Megatron and the only Megatron that turned into a gun that I ever owned was a KO G1 Megatron back in the 90's lol.>>7698340How much was the KO MP Megs? I thought that one was just under $100. I'm not into KO's but if it will justify you to see how he's made so you can criticize it for yourself then go for it.
>>7697253>>7697255Hot damn that looks great. I've been waiting for NA to show a seeker mold and it does not disappoint.
>>7698307I've been asking that for a while now.
>>7698307I don't know and it pisses me the fuck off. At least we've got MS/NA/IF to make good figures that won't break your fucking shelves under the strain of their ridiculous girth.
>>7698429MP scale was a mistake
>>7696648Looks like a TFC Seacon.>>7698346Some characters are larger than others. Predacons are big bois. Complaining about their size is like complaining about Dinobot sizes.Like you can still complain but there's a justification for them being big.
>>7698489I've been trying to sit out on these combiners until FansToys does them but this.. this is tempting. Something about it is just really playable looking and in a world where everyone is aping Zeta/FrenzyRumble's model this is refreshing.
>>7698489There's something about that blue I don't like.
>>7698489I'm sold on this set but the toes need to be a little bigger, they look hilariously undersized.
>>7698518Too saturated maybe?
>>7698441Legends scale is also a mistake.
>>7698489Kind of seems like the legs are too small, especially compared to the gorilla arms. Like he skipped leg day. Like if you upped Swindles size by like 10% it would look better.
>>7698669I was thinking the same, although it might be there's really no feet. If you stuck Swindle onto some big combiner feet, the legs would look longer. But some more bulk would help, too.
>>7698669>>7698705Its the angle. Dead on it looks better. Mind vortex is mistranformed here.
>>7698718I'm liking it more, but I would like feet and a crotch piece upgrade.
>>7699028Why the gorilla tho.
>>7699082Fuck, image limit reached.
>>7699037Are they making this a 6 man team?Maybe the gorilla becomes an arm while Divebomb is the whole back?
>>7698557Should see the other foot, it's even smaller than the one here.
So I made a new thread:>>7699118>>7699118
