>>7753911I have a lot of these saved from tfw
>>7753911>posts not one but two shitty MPsYikes!
>sexyUuuuuhhhhhh, anyone knows what color are this guy's windows?I need it for reference for a custom of the sexiest Action Master from the sexiest Arms Micron mold.
>>7753939>THS ConvoyWHAT YEAR IS IT
>>7753953the year where MP toys are worse than retail toys
I don't collect Transformers and don't plan on starting but I do want a nice Optimus. Which one to get?
>>7753957Correct, Hybrid Style Convoy was released in 2006, the same year as that awful MP02 Starscream (MP05 Megatron would be released the following year).
>>7753939I don't own Hybrid Style Convoy and never will, but I do like the idea of swappable hands. I understand why they don't do it, but I'd like to see that return.
>>7753964Hybrid style is what I would like to see return. Detailed mini figures loaded with accessories. Though I guess that's more 3p like iron factory anymore.
>>7753958Siege Optimus.MP44 is pointless in every sense.
IDK how the fuck this one got past tfw's mods>>7753958What version or Optimus are you looking for? G1? Prime? Bayverse?
>>7753960and it's still better than MP-39 and MP-44
>>7753981>MP-05>Better than anythingI will give you MP-3 since it still has the best alt mode out of all the jetbots
>>7753982no, THS OP is better than those two
>>7753981Is Masterpiece Sunstreaker the "hoes mad" of Transformers? Two years later and guys like this are still rectum ravaged over him.
>>7753969I think that would be a nice direction for a higher end line to go in. But all things considered recent MPs still seem to sell fairly well despite the negative reception by some. Or, at least, they've been selling well enough that Takara don't seem interested in changing course. I'm not sure another high-end line has room to exist.I'd rather have good mainline stuff than good Masterpiece or other high-end stuff though, myself. Masterpiece figures have always struggled to justify their prices in my opinion. I don't see that changing.
>>7753992more like people's wallet got ravaged for that piece of shit lmao
>>7754002Yep, hoes still mad.
Anything else ever emerge about that Siege Hot Shot or nah?
>>7754009>he actually bought that piece of shitOH NONONONONONONONO
>>7754010Like another anon said, he'll be up at NYCC other sites'll probably have him in a few days after
>>7753911Do any of you know how often Hasbro's online store restock? I wanted to try getting an SS Hightower from there since everywhere else I look either doesn't have it or has it marked up for a lot more than it normally is.
How do I git gud at picking bases for customs?
>>7753958Siege Prime is a great toy at $30. You'll need to shell out big bucks for anything nicer than that. Only real downside is that he has no trailer, but I really like his Cybertronian alt form.
>>7754009>>7754013>not getting the better deco
>>7754013There are very few things in this world sadder than someone being so butthurt over toys...why do you let the way someone else spends their money effect you?
>>7754048I can think of something that's way sadder: wasting your money on that piece of shit lmao
>>7754041It's equally good, but I skipped it because it's just so monochrome.
>>7753939Best Optimus>>7754056>lmaoI'll always be bummed that this has become the battlecry of people pretending they aren't upsetI loved saying 'lmao' when shit is actually funny
>>7754056I reiterate: you go online to criticise the way others spend the money they earned. Does it make you feel good? Does being right by your own subjective standard seriously give you that much of a dopamine rush? I literally don't own this figure and don't even want it, but you're doing this for what, exactly? "Lmao".
>>7753977I like the G1 look
>>7754013imagine being so poor you can't afford all of the toyslol, kill yourself
>>7754077I'm not sure if I want to go towards MPMs. Haven't they been spotty on the engineering overall? Plus, it feels a tad redundant since I'm getting Studio Series figures.
>>7754079Only prime and ironhide have really had major qc issues, the others are perfectly fine as far as mp's go
>>7754077Is MPM Megatron any good? I hope they'll make other, better versions of TF2 or even 3 Megs. I just like him as a Tank so much...
>Finally getting Sunstreaker tomorrow >read this thread Oh boy lol. Other than the price, now could anyone hate that figure?
>>7754085you mean apart from the stupidly hard transformation for muh accuracy's sake and all the paint chips and breakage issues?nah nothing wrong, these people are delusional
>>7754085From what I understand, the transformation is pretty involved, and it's very reliant on the Sunbow aesthetic. But if you bought it already I'm guessing you're okay with both of those. Regardless, enjoy it, anon!
>MP fags in a nutshell
>>7754086Weird, I've only ever heard positive remarks about Sunstreaker's transformation. Maybe you should stick to simpler toys, anon.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDkNKt0UYjU
>>7754086>Stupidly hardCome on, now. Did ROTF Optimus also make you cry?
>>7754098>>7754100>I buy $400 toys just to use them as a rubik's cube that chips its own paintlmao
>>7754116I can chip in to buy you some legends or cyberverse figures since these are all too hard for you!
>>7753935Seething faggot spotted
>>7754085Don't bother with those retards, they hate everything. Sunstreaker, like 99% of the figues these people rage about all day long, is perfectly fine.
>>7754118and those would still be better than MP-44 lmao>>7754120t. just wasted $400
>>7753911>Does it feel hot in here to you?
>>7753936It's funny you bring him up, I just ordered one. How is he?
>>7754125>There, that’s better.
>>7754118I realise you're probably being pedantic, but that would be really cool. I'd love more spark armor figures!
>couldn't afford to fund Unicron>Can afford to fund Ms. MonopolyWhat does hasbro mean by this?what would happen if Unicron fails again?
>>7754125>>7754129"Draw me like one of your French girls"
>>7754151ok i will
>>7754147Look at Hasbro's twitterLook at the people in charge on their website
The MPtroll is getting old already.
>>7753911I still want art of shy, big tiddy g1 Optimus toy with a really big, red sweater with sleeves that cover up her hands, if any of you artfags are reading this
>>7754194Why not check out Jobby the Hong's rendition?
>>7754100>Did ROTF Optimus also make you cry?not that anon but yes. In my defense, his swords wouldn’t stay in place like they were supposed to
>>7754023Keep looking, I finally managed to find him at my local Target today.
>>7754116to be fair ROTF Optimus was 1/10 of the price of this and you could still play with him
>>7754147Parody Monopoly has been it's own separate line for awhileThere's a lot of them
>>7754197>Jobby the HongDon't wish that on anybody.
>>7754147So what's the the difference between normal Monopoly and Ms.Monopoly?
>>7753911>There was a Hun-Gurr on Amazon for about £20, decided to wait before orferi g it because I was unsure if I would be able to find the other Terrorcons.>By the time I get the harder to find ones the Hun-Gurr is now gone and the cheapest alternative is one on eBay for £32I'm still kicking myself
>>7754276>orferi gHow the fuck-*ordering it
>>7754147>compares a $20 product that is just paper and cardboard copy paste of a game to a $500+ product that uses all sorts of materials and assembling and needed to be engineered from the ground up .
>>7754276I don't know how it works in brits but it's better to sit on a product and deal with returning than leaving it to chance it will still be there later
>>7754126No idea, I was asking because I'm about start and Axer custom and needed the windows for reference.Other anons seemed to like it a lot, though.
>>7754281Yeah I should have done that, I was just dumb and thought "oh this must be the normal price so I doubt it's going anywhere soon" and it blew up in my face this time.
>>7754023Once a fortnight.
>>7754256Child support payments for Jr Monopoly.
>>7754256>The rules have been rewritten in “Ms Monopoly” so that female players start out with more cash than their male counterparts, and earn more money each time they pass “go,” >Instead of purchasing property, in the new, socially-conscious game, players will invest in inventions created by women, including WiFi, solar heating and chocolate chip cookiesthat's it. Feels about five years late to capitalize on the fad but I doubt most that buy it will actually play it.
>>7754290>female players start out with more cash than their male counterparts, and earn more money each time they pass “go"So the only reason for guys to play it is for the challenge of being at a disadvantage?
>>7754295more or less but that's assuming you even get a mixed group. I picture most of the guys willing to play this with girls would let the girls win anyway.
>>7754296>I picture most of the guys willing to play this with girls would let the girls win anyway.I knew some guys like this growing up. That white knighting shit creep girls out. One of the worse was when one ask "can we not invite him to things?" when he literally passed on a winning move because it would effect one of the girls in our group saying he wouldn't treat a girl like that.
>>7754290>female players start out with more cash than their male counterparts, and earn more money each time they pass “go,”That's such a weird rule. I don't see people atually observing it, except maybe for little girls.
>>7753936Black>>7754126Hes pretty good, but the grey can look dull.>>7754024Identify what are the main characteristics of the character you want to make and if the the mold you want to use as base has them.also, before buying anything make a digital mock up, it can help you decide.
I didn't want it at $80. Walmart said ok.
>>7754341Walmart has lost their minds and new MLs are ringing up half off
>>7754341is walmart selling the KOs from China?
>>7754348No, just shitty Transformers from Viet nam.
>>7753958Mp-10 or a turd party ko of it thb.Mp-10 is still just fine imo especially for someone who casually wants an Optimus. Mp44 is too expensive to justify for anyone but the hardest of the hardcore and you have to deal with modern masterpiece turbo panel hyper complex transformation autism.
What do you guys do with IDW dead-corpse Ultra Magnus now that the Siege version replaces it?
>>7753958Depends on what you want.If we're talking CHUG scale and affordable, Siege is a great option. Articulated well, nice robot mode, good vehicle mode and a good size. There is the Classics mold which is old as hell now but is still decent.If you want something different, try tracking down the Deluxe Armada "Bendy" Prime. He should be relatively affordable and he's very nicely poseable. Also he looks pretty nice (if you like the design) and he comes with a Targetmaster Minicon.If you want to go MP then either track down MP-10 (he's dated but still nice) or if you don't mind 3P stuff then Magic Square Light of Freedom (he's not as detailed as MP-10 but he still looks good and his engineering is superior).
>>7754041Why they just won't release this head as an alternate head with Streaker? I mean I know why, but still.
>>7754132Arcee, you little hussy
>>7754369Call him Magnus Prime, as a what if of him being able to open the matrix on the movie.
>>7754389He looks like he's about to clonk smaller Magnus with that hammer.
>>7754390Hes still my favorite Magnus, >>7754369 set up reminds me of that prime that was supposed to follow Rodimus but got canceled.
>buying 2 MP44 so he can smear the figure by swapping out handGot to give it up to the dedication of the hater!
>>7754389>>7754391Ugh, I wish I'd gotten that addon it. Without it he's pretty gimped compared to the new one, so I'll probably end up putting him the "for sale" box.
>>7754396There are some addons that can "save" figures, Defensor used to be my least favorite combiner until i found the thc torso pieces.
>>7754009The funny thing about the mp line is it shows how pathetic the tf fans are. A high end piece comes out and those who waddle in the main line shit bitch about it and then complain about not having enough options when they are treading in toys up to their bitch tits.
What are some other good/interesting alternate decos of main characters? I'm really partial to this black and red Optimus.
>>7754410Those are rare, not much to choose from, I mean it is "dangerous" to change your deco as a transformer, you could be confused with another guy or being called an invader from an alternate dimension.
>>7754410Fox Kids Cheetor is super cool.
>>7754276>Ordered a Hun-Gurr off Amazon at the end of July for about £20>Was the last one at that priceSorry Anon, the good boy is in good hands at least
>>7754276I know your pain anon. I was looking at a $20 Shockwave vs bumblebee two pack but I waited too long and now the cheapest I can find is $80 with $20 shipping
Can anyone think of any good repurposes for CHUG Throttlebots since it's seems very unlikely Hasbro is gonna give us any more.
>>7754454t. crying because he wasted $400 on a piece of shit
>>7754290>Instead of purchasing property, in the new, socially-conscious game, players will invest in inventions created by women, including WiFi, solar heating and chocolate chip cookiesLike I understand why this exists, but it feels like it trivializes the efforts of past women and devolves into self-indulgence.
>>7754346Based Walmart, MLs shouldn't cost double that.
>>7753958I'd defend SS-38 Optimus Prime. He looks like an updated G1 Optimus Prime.
>>7754460>"We love completing teams." - John Warden, known liar.
>>7754429Eh don't worry about it, I only have myself to blame, its good to know it went to someone who cares about the figure though and not a scalper.
>>7754474>It takes 3 lines to complete the Insecticons>Skrapnel gets released again in PotP, genuine thanks Warden.HEY GUYS WE ARE DOING THAT AGAIN IF YOU VO-->The battlechargers win.
>>7754474all they had to do was remold this guy a few more times.Hell just change the head. Jerkoffs like me will buy it.
>>7754460Just get the 3p set, they even got cheap kos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTze9ELYLgQ
>>7754483Why did they make this and not Cliffjumper?
>>7754486The KOs are huge though. But pretty neat. I have Goldbug and whoever the jeep is. Really well designed figures.
>>7754486I keep looking at them but for they're not very accurate for how much they cost. I feel like I could get any bunch of transformers in those colors and work just as well.
>>7754495I don't mind. There's already a bunch of Cliffjumpers to choose from. I'd rather they'd nail more characters then keep doing the same guys over and over.
>>7754509I get that but it was just kind of weird that we got a red repaint of bumblebee that wasn't cliffjumper especially since they released every minibot except him. They didn't even do a Hubcap?
>>7754511But Hubcap is yellow Cliffjumper! ...wait.
>>7754511There's this guy who is pretty damn good. Transformation is on the easy side, though.
>>7753939That's a cool figure, but the rubber tires on mine have all split, even the ones on the trailer.
Is there any non-invasive fix that can be performed to fix SS Long Haul's knees, so that the legs can be set completely straight?Something that doesn't involve removing the pins.
>>7754310Something like this?I've done it before but I often pick a figure I later think it's not that good a base so I have to go back to looking for another. I had more issues with it when thinking of figures for a Turbomaster combiner.
>>7754461You're the only crying bitch here fagget.
>>7754511They did Cliffjumper repaints before. I guess they wanted to shake it up, though why they did another red guy seems strange.Hupcap is the hardest sell because he's a yellow Cliffjumper, which just makes him Bumblebee.
>>7754460Alright, I tried to keep them all in legends scale, can't find a blue car for freeway so he'd have to be a Blackjack custom.I'd also paint TR Bee as Goldbug and use some of the 3p Bees as Bee.
>>7754534Which bumblebee is that? Third party?
>>7754540yeeep Newage but it's the goldbug version.
>>7754519True but he was more movie line
>>7754536There's Nightbeat. But he's a weird mold.
>>7754536I find this guy works as Freeway, though he's a shitty toy. His comber head even looks like Freeways. Searchlight is the one I really can't find someone good for. Tailgate is too well known as Tailgate.
I keep eyeballing this guy as a possible Searchlight but he's expensive as fuck to get.
>>7754544They did try to combine the two
>>7754534>>Huffer as Wideload.I like the cut of your jib there.
>>7754551Oh right "that guy" he really sucks, I took his combiner head for my custom head box, dunno if still have the rest, I'd paint blackjack and use the PCC head, and then use the blackjack head on gen tailgate, keeping TR tailgate, as... tailgate.>>7754526What head are you planing to use, the g1 or a shapeways print? I 'd use other mold, Prid Knockout is kinda shitty on his arm articulation.
>>7754552You could probably use the Clocker mold if you're not wanting altmode accuracy.
>>7754511A halfassed solution, but with some paint to fake a chest window, thrilling 30 bee can pass for idw Hubcap.
>>7754560I thought of either commission it to be sculpted by hand or model it myself.I wasn't aware that there was an Axer head on Shapeways.
>>7754560>I 'd use other mold, Prid Knockout is kinda shitty on his arm articulation.You mean the elbows, right?I'm picking AM Smokescreen because of it being the closest in colors and having the front wheels go to the back.
>>7754572Oh, I don't know if theres one already, but you can ask for someone to commission it on their forums, but thats expensive.
>>7754575>I'm picking AM Smokescreen because of it being the closest in colorsHes creamy white, like rts Jazz, axer is grey, I'd use POTP Jazz instead, he has the big square shoulders, the full hood chest with 4 lights and the fender to paint yellow, hes also cheap AF.
>>7754589Make Axer great again.
>>7754589wow, they really do look a lot alike.You know, as much grief as Hasbro gets for repaints, sometimes I don't think they take it far enough on some molds.
>>7754589I did buy POTP Jazz with the intention of turning it into Axer at first but his shoulders are fucking trash.
What could possibly be the next trilogy after WFC except Beast Wars? They can't avoid it forever, right?
>>7754613They're friction jints, the extra coat of paint should help.
>>7754618Eurobots, G2, Victory, RiD2000, unicron trylogy, they still have ways to skip it, I'm hoping for Victory, really want some trainbots, multiforce combiners, Galaxy Shuttle and a commander Deatsaurus.
>>7754618Warden's 4D chess: We put BW characters in Cyberverse!-What do you mean we made the damn thing sell?!-Sir, Skybyte is a Car Robots character.
>>7754618>They can't avoid it forever, right?They easily can if you look at how much of the same territory they tend to cover over and over again. We're in the middle of a War for Cybertron less than ten years after the last War for Cybertron that tackled much of the same concept. Playability variety alone keeps reiterations flexible.I'd rather see a more properly developed G2 or even a G3 with new background material and characters than Beast Wars, myself. I don't think the Beast Wars idea ever lended itself that well to transforming toys even if there are characters I like.
>>7754635I say we can have both. At least they should finish the main cast in the same T30 standard of Rattrap, Rhinox and Waspinator.
>>7754638>At least they should finish the main cast in the same T30 standardThey kinda complete the maximal side, theres the primal and megatron cybertron repaints, universe chetor and dinobot, lg blackarachnia and potp Primal/Optimal.The big 3 missing pieces are scorponok, tarantulas and Terrorsaur.
>>7754638No they'll do them in this hollow and hairless standard
>>7754646>CheetorOh no, there's a reason that never got redecoed aside from Henkei. That one is a do-over.You missed Airazor too.
>>7754623>EurobotsI'll be OK with this, my first Transformer was Thunderclash.
>>7754654My first transformer was bayformer scorponok. What was your first transformer, next anon to read this?
>>7754654Yeah but you didn't buy out all the Thunderclash-reference Optimus Primes, so they'll never do him again.
>>7754469Why what? You being a poorfag that you can't buy G1 parts?
>>7754657Either G1 smokescreen, Metroplex or Grimlock, can't remember which, I wasn't into transformers back then, until the bay movies pulled me back, and then rotf voy Screamer was the first transformer I bought by myself.
>>7754657The original BW Cheetor.
>>7754657Proper for reals Transformer? 07 Classic Camaro Bumblebee, I still think he is underrated.
>>7754131>I realise you're probably being pedantic>realiseYeah man. Maybe stick with the kids toys.
>>7754657Beast Wars Dinobot
>>7754650One thing I do like about that Scorponok/Paralon is that the claws actually transform, unlike every other version where they just say "fuck it" and leave him with scorpion claws in robot mode.
>>7754657Earliest I could remember that I only recently found out the name? The guys from Landcross. I had a ton of KOs of them when I was around 3-4 around 1992~93, then I got KOs of the Dinoforce from Victory as well because I could vividly remember owning dinosaur pretender shells. Granted I didn't know who they were till I got into the Japanese G1 stuff years ago. Then more G1 stuff like KOs of Optimus and such. Growing up in Asia and my grandmother buying me a ton of toys got me into the fandom early. Me growing up with KO is also what made me actively dislike KOs and learned how to be careful of my toys since KOs tend to break a lot fairly easily.
>>7754279The Ms. Monopoly campaign included sending 20,000 dollars in real cash to 3 girls as part of the promotion.
>>7754694and over 4,000,000 is needed to back Unicron what's your point brainlet?
>>7754694how did they choose what girls were worthy?
>>7754679Is this bait?
>>7754657Some little shit from G2 I couldn't remember even if I wanted. The first one where I was actually acquainted with the franchise would be either BW Dinobot or Terrorsaur.
>>7754722Yes it is. Ignore it and it will go away.
>>7754657G2 Speedstream.I'm only buying Siege Mirage to bring my bro back.
>>7754736This desu, It was my bros first TF. Mine was RID Sideburn
>>7754657It was a Beast Wars something or other. I really don't remember. The original War for Cybertron brought me back into Transformers.I'd consider myself a fairly big fan but I've always been somewhat selective about what I buy. I'm still that way. I still haven't bought anything from Siege, for example. Sometimes I get so used to waiting to see how a line or figure turns out I forget to buy anything. I might pick up at least Siege Sideswipe, though.
>>7754369He's magnus' earth form who now has to wear the car carrier armour permanently after getting nearly killed, it's basically a life support suit, Minimus is nothing to do with him though, fuck that green midget.
>>7754589I had him on hand and he was more of a pearly bright gray but you guys got me to reconsider, though.Did MFT made a Jazz yet? I do want Axer to at least lack door wings.
>>7754589To be fair, it also looks like Jackpot and Kickoff too
>>7754657Going off of a old box of you cars I owned and recently dug out of the attic I apparently had g1 Ratchet, Motormaster and Drag Strip but I never remember getting or playing with them.
>>7754788Action Master combiner when?
>>7754661Why's it always got to be about being poor, asshole? Maybe that anon doesn't want to spend $20 on an accessory.
>>7754796Then he doesn't deserve that accessory. It's the order of doing business. Pony up the money.
>>7754796Because that anon you're responding to is a bitter loser.
>>7754805>bitter loser for having money to spend on stuffK
>>7754460Quick "headswaps", Huffers just resting over the stock tiny head. >>7754772Not yet, also, POTP Jazz doesn't have door wings.
>>7754469Considering some the others that’s not too bad.
>>7754848>POTP JazzCould it be that I need the Power of the Primes?
>>7754009Meh, I own it twice so I feel entitled to my overall mixed to negative opinionsgood>Transformation is actually pretty nice. It's basically Wheeljack's but with a messy backpack>Well articulated and his legs are overall designed pretty nicely>Sunstreaker's tiny gun stores in a pretty fun way>Clearances for transformation and articulation are pretty tight but overall there really isn't a risk of paint chipping. The only thing you need to be careful of is flipping the chest plate around since it can rub against the fenders if you fold those into the torso firstbad>too expensive>Cheap feeling paint>Sunstreaker's face sculpts are factory defect tier>Cordon has no storage for his gun in robot or vehicle mode and can't transform with it in his hand.>Chestplate is ugly as fuck because of the outward facing hinges and it doesn't look better in person unless you've let the sunk cost take hold of you. The figure could have very easily just used the actual vehicle's roof without flipping it, using only a fake windshield perhaps, but that would have made the chest very slightly inaccurate (gasp)>They tried to make a gimmick out of the figure triple changing between a modded and unmodded lambo (likely because Lamborghini is really finicky about how their cars are represented for licensing) at the expense of the clusterfuck that is the backpack and its transformation. They should have absolutely and 100% just made the modded engine a removable piece, it would have just been better.
>>7754928I don't doubt the sincerity of your opinions, but if you don't care for it much why did you buy it twice? Especislly given the high price? Did you buy them both at the same time or something?
Will Hasbro sue to defend their IP?
>>7754961There is no disputin' the Putin.
BBTS daily deal is Encore Big Convoy (show colors) for $60
>>7754928Seeing the two together just reminds me how much I am not a fan of the clear blue being used on alt mode windows instead of that smoked clear.
Is 2007 leader Optimus good? I don't care about accuracy.
>>7755030I like mine and how chunky it feels.
>>7755024How big is Big Convoy? Voyager or leader?
>>7755030His head sometimes has trouble staying down in his alt mode after a while but yeah he’s pretty good overall
>>7754657Heh, Beast Wars Scorponok.
>>7755032He was an Ultra class so about Leader size but he is short for its class.
>>7755044Ultras are taller than Voyagers but shorter than Leaders
>>7754084It's good. Much better than I ever thought it could be. Didn't even know he existed until I was walking through the mall and saw him sitten there. Had to have him. Everyday I love him more and more.Joints are great and articulation is awesome. Head is stiffer than I'd prefer, but whatever, the mouth moves
>>7755049How is the backpack? Is it discreet?
>>7755030>I don't care about accuracy.t. MisfireHave fun losing the war
My Siege Springer has a bum knee. That thin vertical segment just below the knee that is supposed to snap into the middle of his lower leg doesn't snap, doesn't lock into place, as it does on the other side. It's really not a huge issue but it does make posing him more cumbersome than it should be. Any ideas on what I could try to fix it or maybe reduce how easily it falls out of place? Thanks.
>>7755071A Decepticon targetmaster who can't aim for shitHe received a toy in Titans Return and was a main character in the previous continuity of comics.
>>7755078Misfire was actually important in something?Holy fuck.
>>7755085He was part of a group of misfits, but while he had a fun dynamic he never got to do much. No Targetmaster either since IDW never introduced them, same for Headmasters (Sentinel was a Titan Master).
>>7755089Taking back the Headmaster bit, the actual headmasters didn't get that ability, but many nobodies, Sunstreaker and Scorponok have it early on, then the ability just disappears despite how useful it seemed.
>>7755065I have the same issue anon, it just doesn't snap into place like the other knee
>>7754848And Rollbar is ready.
>>7755094The whole Siege line is full of small but annoying issues. I still love it for getting me back into 'Formers, though. Really makes me feel like a kid again.
So, uuuuhhhhhhh, why don't most transformers have multidirectional cameras installed?You'd think a race of robots that's been at war for literal millions of years would like all the visibility they could afford.
Retrax is the most Reddit transformers ever
>>7755121It also doesn't make any sense for them to be humanoid or have noses or turn into human-sized vehicles or to have an entire planet basically sit in stasis for four million years while the leaders of a civil war are stranded on a backwater nowhere planet, but I rarely see anyone question these things.
>>7754958I got Sunstreaker initially because I wanted to see what the "new style" of MPs was like in person after I skipped out on Megatron for being way too expensive. I don't really intend on getting any more MPs until they can fix their pricing (Hound is tempting and looks nice as a figure but his asking price is just a fucking joke. Maybe if I have nothing to buy around january but I'd probably rather save my money)I might have skipped Sunstreaker if I knew I Cordon was gonna get made, but I like the old countach and kind of have a collection of countach transformers now.>>7755029That's a big issue I take with the new sunbow MPs. I don't even have much of a preference either way between the blue or smokey colours, but when it comes to animation accuracy the blue they use just isn't right, it's a really saturated blue when in the cartoon windows were all more of a faded pastel blue.
>>7755128I feel like I could explain them but transformers' canon is allergic to creativity.
Seeing as how buttblasted everyone is about Sunstreaker, should I mention I bought 2 Sunstreakers and 2 Cordons?
>>7755136i guess if you spend your time attracting negative attention in children's toy threads online...
>>7755136Owning 4 means you have the most powerful opinion over the mold of anyone where.
>>7755136Poster >>7755137 is right and I confirm you a faggot.
>>7755121Cybertronians are really just weirdo aliens that happen to be robots, rather than just purely machines driven towards efficiency.Like if we could graft eyeballs to the back of our soldiers heads we probably wouldn't because everyone involved would find that horrifying and weird as fuck. Sybertronians would probably feel the same way about having 360 cameras for heads (except when they actually do that as punishment for criminals, which is their own thing I guess)
>>7754460>since it's seems very unlikely Hasbro is gonna give us any more.With Runamuck on the way, we'll get them all remolded from him. Yes, even Wideload.
>>7755142Empurata is hands down the gayest idea from IDW.That's why I treat cyclops heads as all sensors; Shockwave and Whirl have no head in my headcanon, only a big eye-nose-ear on a tray.
>>7755024He's on amiami for just over $40.
Could someone be a bro and photoshop a brainlet Wojack face onto this guy?
>>7755173Also apparently the drill also has an effects peg.
>>7755173an attempt was made
>>7755173God damn it, ok. I'm going to order him. A 5mm peg head is just too good.
Whats he thinking about /tfg/?
>>7755103How's the movement in that toys shoulders? I've always though mold looked neat, but very limited; he looks pretty good in your shot though.
>>7755217"I don't think this is a toilet, after all"
>>7755217The power of hinges and panels.
>>7755031>>7755035Thanks guys. Just got one complete on eBay for about 25 bucks shipped.
>>7754673Same hereHe’s kinda weird and clunky but my nostalgia goggles cloud my perception of him
>>7755246Damn, care to drop the link?
Sunstreaker's a big question mark. They can't retool Sideswipe like they did the universe mold so think they'll make a decent figure, or just give us a CHUG Tigertracks with Sunstreaker's head?That'd still be better than this anyway.
>>7755255Retool Siege Wheeljack.If Warden is not a retard or spiteful, he'll drop the transport altmode since it's not even an important part of Wheeljack's character.
>>7755133>I don't really intend on getting any more MPs until they can fix their pricingDon't get your hopes up. I don't have sales numbers, but I'm sure the recent MP figures are still selling well enough that their strategy isn't going to change anytime soon. Even some of the older MPs have prices that make me hesitant. I still haven't decided whether Ironhide/Ratchet is worth the price.
>>7755263I mean, I could see it working, but it'd have to be an extensive retool.
>>7755145why do you tease me like this?
>>7754657Cybertron red alert: a little dumpy but a fun figure the next three I got were definitely better though
>>7754657I think my first ever Transformer was Energon Omega Supreme. That's the earliest memory I can think of involving this toyline.
>>7755250It was an auction. Only reason i asked about it was because I stumbled on this and it seemed like a good deal.
>>7755196Acceptable I guess. Soon I shall have a TF pic for all my Wojack needs.
>>7753911/tfg/ i need your help. I want to get all the Botbots via the multipacks, but i keep getting autist's block figuring out how to avoid getting doubles. What packs do you recommend getting?
>>7755371There’s a list for that.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1G3gfw2uISQ7UAKF3sv8-a5O9JinhTITeRJyMGbZZQ04/htmlview(Just don’t listen if the guy who put it together says he has a MIB Overlord he’d be willing to give you.)
>>7755405In a fit of OCD-ish autistry I decided I wasn’t satisfied with how the Womack face lined up with his, so I spent an unconscionable amount of effort making this.
>>7755428... I did two versions actually....Shut up, don’t judge me!
>>7755217Megatron! As soon as I'm off this toilet, we're going to settle things!
2 questionswhere the hell can I buy fall of cybertron for ps4and are there any die cast figures that transform?
>>77554421. Have you tried Ebay or your local Flea Market?2. What kind of die cast? What era? What line? If you want current one, usually only Masterpieces have diecast and even then only Fanstoys, MMC, and DX9 which are 3rd party companies makes them consistently with diecast. For general mainline stuff, they have cut the production for everything since 2012 so for the past 4 year we had very lightweight and hollow figures.
>>7755461Woops should have said 5 years because since 2018 with the start of siege and studio series, they're upping the quality of the releases a bit while reducing their sizes. So yeah in general we got better stuff but smaller toys.
>>7755442Fall of Cybertron is not on ps4. It was on PS3, should be very easy to find used copies online
My local little bitty Wal Mart decided Jetfire HAD TO GO.
>>7755515>not on ps4Well the Playstation site says it is.https://www.playstation.com/en-ca/games/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-ps4/
>Teenage Robot Ninja Girls!>Girls count it off:>(1!) Nightbird’s always in control >(2!) The wise guy is Nightbirdelo>(3!) Nightbird, she’s the brains of the bunch>(4!) Count on Nightbird to throw the first punch!
>>7755515So weird, a bunch of sites including wiki say it's on ps4 but it actually isn't.
>>7755148Shut the fuck up, you centrifugal buffoon!Empurata is a good enough explanation.Fuck off with your IDW hateboner!
>>7755521From [spoiler]reddit[/spoiler]>It's actually impossible as of December 2017 to buy that game on PS4. The game only got a digital release on the PS Store, there was no physical PS4 version. The licensing deal Activision had with Hasbro expired and wasn't renewed last month, therefore Activision had to remove all those Transformers games from digital stores. You can't buy this game anymore for PS4.
>>7755266Man it really would be so nice if people just stopped buying things anyway. So many markets and fandoms would improve if average people just had breaking points.>I still haven't decided whether Ironhide/Ratchet is worth the price.I don't know if any of the reissues hiked up the price or not, but when it came out at like 80$ or so it was basically the best value MP out there. The mold really solid overall and bigger than average carbots, and it comes with a SHITTON of accesories. And not "recreate that 5 second scene from the cartoon" accessories you get from MPs now, but like shittons of guns and weapons that are all different and attach in different ways and all at once. It's fun. You can get Ironhide looking like a fucking commando.Only issues I have with the Vanette MP mold is that Ratchet's unfortunately one of the first MPs to switch to the shitty flakey paint. You have to be careful of his thighs while transforming him, but there isn't much you can do against the edges of the vehicle panels chipping though. Ironhide thankfully uses the old good paint that's durable as all hell. I also consider the shadow fisher upgrades to be pretty much mandatory because getting rid of the hip skirts just makes the figure so much nicer looking. No clue how expensive those are now though.
>>7755148>>7755535>Why must we fight so?>Is this all we are?>An eternal series of petty squabbles.>Is this really what this fandom has become?>...>Anyhow, I’m going to go kill you both now as a way to take my mind off it. So you should probably get running. Or don’t, I’m flexible.
>>7755535okay retardDon't poop yourself in anger.
>>7754657Armada Demolishor along with 3 Minicon packs. The race car team that became the Skyboom Shield, the missile truck team that all had red missles, and the gear function team that had a tank, drill and bucket wheel thing.
>>7754657Mine was the red version of RiD Sideburn. He's pretty nifty and I kept him for a while but my sister's dog ate it when I was a teenager. I ended up buying a new one just to have around though because of the nostalgia.
>>7754658Was this the most disappointing mold of all time?
>>7754690nu-RID's autobots all suck but a lot of the decepticons were pretty good and creative actually. I wish the distribution for that line wasn't so godawful though because I would have liked to get some.
>>7755570No that's Titans Return Sixshot
>>7755576He was that bad? And I wanted to buy him...
>>7755580Yeah he turns into a submarine not a gun
>>7755580Yeah I just got him and he's incredibly disappointing. Several things don't tab in right or at all and his articulation is quite poor. >SunstreakerI can't believe we are still discussing this figure. Not that I am complaining. I just got him too and he's pretty great. I had trouble with a few steps of the transformation but overall it wasn't too bad.My only problem is that his hip ratchets almost instantly chewed themselves to shit. That and the weak af side chest tabs. Sunsurge actually did the chest better.
>>7755582>>7755583Only issue I've seen is loose knees on some copies, I bought the mold 3 times for quickswitch and Greatshot and only got one loose knee.
>>7753911after a month of telling employees to check in the back i finally got my soundwave + overpriced tapesehthink there will be a seige style gnaw (sharkticon) in the near future? the cyberverse one is pretty cool but doesn't match my aesthetic
>>7755586>sharkticonGet the oversized TR KOs, they come in a pack of 3 and have more paint, accesories and articulation.>>7755225Shoulders are on a balljoint mounted on the wheel that gives him a butterfly like joint, they're just oddly placed.
>>7755488Thats cooler than i expected. Reminds me of some of those dope toybiz icemen
>>7755531I was thinking her greebles could work as a weird homage to the early Flor Dery design, but nah.
>>7754657Beast Wars K9.The only toy from my Beast Wars collection to survive into my 30s.My Beast Machines are still alive and kicking though.
>>7755583The Takara version is fun as hell.I own him as Sixshot and Greatshot, and I love both.
Got some oldies in the mail today.Generations Drift: expensive but totally worth it. He's stupidly posable for a 10-year-old toy (except the head). 9/10 would recommend.Universe Devastator (from the RID Build Team mold): Hightower and Long Haul are amazing, Bonecrusher is so-so and Scavenger is shit. Managed to fan-mode a Devastator mode that doesn't look too bad, too, and CW hands fit into his arms. Gotta see if there's any smaller 3P hands I can slot in.
>>7755535>you centrifugal buffoon!Wat
>>7755641>Loved the mold so much, I bought 5 TR versions for half off, and an LG for 32.I don't regret his purchase at all, my Sixshot and his Six Shadows.
>>7755638I feel ya. I had lost a good chunk of my collection during a move, and have been trying to get them all back over the years.
>>7755520Fucking hell, lucky cunt.
>>7755520Nice, my Walmarts sold it for way more, so the cheapest I can get it is 60, since he was sold for 92 here.
>>7753911About to get g2 Sideswipe and Slamdance. I've heard some reports about foot breakages, how fucked am I?
>>7755700Just take an exacto knife and cut the excess plastic on slam feet before trying to transformi it.
>>7755700Very, most copies have that problem. Go read up on some of the other sites on what they did to fix the left leg so it wouldn't break, some of the guides recommended shaving or cutting a few bits to prevent the breakage.
>>7755703>>7755702Damn. thanks anons, looking into it, seems pretty dire, but not unfixable. At least Sideswipe is the one I'm more interested in, but it still sucks that we have to fix Hasbro's shitty QC.
>>7755705No, the annoying part is that unlike a few other places, they won't send replacement parts, or give a partial refund. If it breaks, though shit, send it back and hope the next one doesn't have the problem or you know how to fix it.
>>7755548>And not "recreate that 5 second scene from the cartoon" accessories you get from MPs now, but like shittons of guns and weapons that are all different and attach in different ways and all at once. It's fun. You can get Ironhide looking like a fucking commando.Finally, someone who actually likes toys and understands. AND you recognize Ironhide's paint durability. We need more in the fandom like you, it would be a better place.
>>7755217His ugly fucking knee joints.
>>7755217"My back hurts!"
>>7755217"How much paint is going to rub off my ass from sitting in this chair?"
>>7755217"I remember when I was younger. It was only a decade ago, but I was a thing of beauty. Now I look like a piece of shit! What have you done to me, Takara!?"
>>7754928>likely because Lamborghini is really finicky about how their cars are represented for licensingThis keeps getting parroted, but there is zero proof to suggest that they are any more or less finicky than any of the other automobile companies that have their licenses in the MP line. People just pulled this tidbit out of their ass to try and explain why the MP Sideswipe mold didn't have some kind of collapsing chest to be more cartoon accurate, when in reality the explanation behind that is just that Hasui didn't fucking care and wasn't going to add unnecessary steps to a transformation just to appease autists who were going to compare the toy to a half-assed sketch from 30 years ago.The only real things we knew about MP alt mode licensors was that VW was reluctant to have their vehicles licensed to "war toys" (which clearly was either exaggerated, or fixed with money), and Mistubishi didn't care about real world accuracy beyond the cab of the truck, although given that the Fuso was a commercial chassis theydesigned for multiple purposes, everything else beyond the cab was usually built by some other company and wouldn't really concern them anyway.
I wish we'd get a Char B1 Transformer. French tanks were aesthetic as fuck.
how much longer must i wait for my BBTS Refraktor 3 pack to ship?
>>7755747The way the toylines are going now, we're not getting any Transformer concepts that didn't already exist 30 years ago. Check the 3P thread, though, some company recently made a really neat, early 20th century tankformer that is somewhat similar.
>>7755760>trying to find that overlap between transformer collectors and the hotglue collectors
>>7755763Regular Refraktor is still on fucking preorder.
>>7755760I-I might have to buy that, for um, reasons.
>>7755760Wrong thread you silly horny boy.
>>7755548>And not "recreate that 5 second scene from the cartoon" accessories you get from MPs now, but like shittons of guns and weapons that are all different...which are all to recreate that 5 second scene from the cartoon where he used them.>He comes with a bunch of accessories referencing many of the gadgets he used in the Generation 1 cartoon. Ironhide's character model did not include any weapons or other extra tools or devices, meaning there was little to no consistency in the depiction of his armament in the series; as such, the toy picks and chooses from the many weapons and accoutrements he was seen using. He includes a pair of generic Autobot laser pistols of the same design as the gun that came with Masterpiece Bumblebee (which Ironhide began using in "Megatron's Master Plan, Part 1") which can be stored on the underside of his vehicle mode, a larger gun based on his original toy's Static Laser Gun (similar weapons having been seen in "City of Steel" and "A Prime Problem"), a set of alternate hands representing his ability to spray liquids through his fingertips (done in multiple episodes), a set of nozzles that can be exchanged for his hands based on those seen in "Desertion of the Dinobots, Part 1", a second set of nozzles based not on anything from the cartoon, but on the connector peg for his Static Laser Gun from his original toy, the back-mounded missile launcher from "More than Meets the Eye, Part 3" based on his original toy's launcher, his wrist-mounted sonodar sensor dish from "S.O.S. Dinobots", complimented by a readout image of dinosaur bones that can be slipped behind his windshield, and the jetpack seen in "The Immobilizer", complete with jet-flare effects.
Sunstreaker owners: does your copy still have good hip ratchets? I've owned my copy for less than twelve hours and his his hips are already ruined. All the gear teeth just wore down within minutes. Gross problem on an otherwise amazing figure
>>7754657RID Side Burn. Working on restoring his chrome and getting him looking good again, his joints are all good even if his paint has seen better days.
>>7755840It’s literally the sexy transformers thread though
>>7755682>>7755683What's odd is that while Jetfire is expensive, he's not overpriced. Wal Mart's Soundwave is what's over priced, but that's still $50. Full disclosure:i paid full price for Hot Rod and Screamer, but I waited till OP was $25.
I bought some of wal marts G1 Bumblebees on clearance and plan to repaint them to resemble Red Bumblebee, Microchange's blue Beetle, and maybe some of the other intl. Bees. Has anyone here done this before and if so how did you take out the windshield part? I guessing very slow work with a rotary tool.
>>7754290>female players start out with more cash than their male counterparts, and earn more money each time they pass “go,”That's pretty sexist
>>7754391which prime was that?
