Previous thread >>10048652Current thread: >>10054146>Breakdown being the way it is>exclusives being the way they are>Armada Starscream being the way it isWell, at least it's a pretty time to take photos of your bots outside.Due to the board being so slow, new thread gets made when we're on page 10 or image limit (otherwise we'd go with bump limit, like faster boards do with their generals.) Report and hide spam/low-quality posts, move on to new threads only when appropriate, instead of making or joining early, low-quality, threads and making the general and entire board actively worse.

Ah man I'd went and made a pic for the thread! Ah well, that's a nice pic.
>>10054153Oop, my bad. Do you want me to try deleting the OP, or just next time?
>>10054154Ah don't worry about it, literally just messing about in GIMP for like 2 minutes, wandering Kup is much nicer.
>>10054161Ah, alright.And yeah, what a lovely set of photos.
>>10054170Ah, I remember Kup's journey, that was fun.
Windblade did nothing wrong.

>>10054282With a large stick>>10054285The muscle one? I must have overlooked it, then
>>10054309Yes, that is her final form...so far. Pulling power from two other fembots comes Overlady the Tri-fembot.
>>10054317Windbomination must be stopped, no matter the cost...
>>10054351fool, your attempts at stopping her only makes her stronger.
>>10054354When will it end
>>10054356>anon who is fan of Furman asks meNo, you say it.
>>10054425It never ends, does it?
>>10054430That looks surprisingly good.
>>10054431So do you!
Road rage didn't come with a card....bummer
>>10053657theyre awesome, but personally I don't like splitting beast heads in half if it's avoidable. it looks cheap and toyish.>>10053904nothing wrong with pulse if you have multiple things to buy at once.
>>10054309>kill Pop! kill Pop!>you should kill Pop! you should totally kill Pop!
>>10053708luv me iguanasHe's a surprisingly really nice core. I find he stands out plenty from most of the other core guy's I've got thanks to resembling his pretender shell rather than a G1 box man, and the red and bronze is a great touch to complement all the purple. Also he has incredible ankle pivots while they're barely present or not present at all on the other cores I have
Report, hide, ignore. Shouldn't be too hard by now
>>10054600Now that's more cute.It's a Venture Bros. reference.
Was going to refrain from posting more pics for a future thread but that set of Kup pictures were some of my favorites I've seen posted here so here's some photos I took some time ago that involves another old timer
>>10054617I still haven't fixed Road Rocket to this day
>>10054612Yeah, it did sound like Hank and Dean, was just unsure what the moment was, it's a long and "long time in between seasons" show>>10054617>some of my favorites I've seen postedSame
>>10054629Had a lot of fun figuring out how to do this shot since I was originally trying to find out how to show a horrific monstrosity with the limitations of my tiny desk space and the few figures I have. Had to borrow someone's phone since I don't have easy access to a normal flashlight and I can't use my own phone since that's what I'm taking photos with>>10054634I used to have this forklift dude. 07 Dirtboss I think? Shares his design with an enemy in the movie tie-in video game as a minor mook
>>10054580Which one do I hide, which one do I ignore and which one do I report?

>>10054634unbelievably cute>>10054652Yeah, Dirt Boss, this is the RotF repaint called Deadlift based on GoBot Spoons.
>>10054652It's indeed very foreboding, good job anon. And I've no idea who this guy is, I've only saved photos>>10054667>unbelievably cuteVery!!
>>10054664>everyone is goanon if I say soThe (embed)(embed)(embed) was an oversight on my part and I apologize, adding the pastebins with 4chanX does that. Will take care next time.That said? Every single gothread has been deleted within minutes of going up as of late. His reign of terror is over. We don't need the disclaimers anymore and this thread is blatant spam made in a fit of paranoia. Stop being a cocksmoker.
>>10054677Your gaslighting doesn't work, Go.
>>10054682Oh no no no, he merely ignored and didn't fix his embed error twice, mentioning nothing about it, as well as decided something for the OP all on his own and is blaming us for it, totally not the same guy.
>>10054692You do realize dividing the threads like this is giving him more power, right? That crying about him when he's not even here is giving him exactly what he wants? You absolute fucking buffoon. >>10054692I didn't even make the prior thread. Dumbass.
So what do you guys think of Breakdown being a cheap retool?
>>10054702I think it's treating G1 Menasor with the respect he deserves; none whatsoever.
>>10054652I only had the idea to take these photos since I only had a Six-Gun and Ironworks as my modular guys, and seemingly the only thing I could accomplish with them are these nonsensical amalgamation of body parts. I created abominations so logically I saw them as the product of a mad scientist, and since I've yet to acquire a good enough Shockwave I thought Wheeljack made for a good substitute. Took this sort of family photo with the figures I used for this set, and during this Road Rocket lost another part of her limb so I decided to capture that moment. At least that was far easier to fix since I was actually able to fix it with no issue>>10054667>the RotF repaint called DeadliftWeird then how the RotF design more so resembles the one in a game from 2007>>10054674>very forebodingGood to hear since that's what I more or less set out to accomplish with that shot
>>10054708Because it's a shit design?>"Combiner">Torso bot just slots into a frame>Limb bots just attach to the frame's existing limbs>Leg bots don't even attach to the front>Character boils down to "grrrr I'm angry"Honestly Sunbow Menasor is the worst of the Sunbow combiners and that's saying a lot.
>>10054702Wow I can't believe they made the toys based on the same mold, they look totally different.
>>10054714They do indeed.>>10054713I like it thematically, that Motormaster just sees his team mates as extensions of his will, and the whole reason Menasor is so psycho is because all the limbs hate Motormaster so much.
>>10054719I kinda feel what you mean but it's not a visually great design. Ironically I feel like the best looking Menasor is probably either Fansproject or TransforMission.
>>10054713>>"Combiner">>Torso bot just slots into a frame>>Limb bots just attach to the frame's existing limbs>>Leg bots don't even attach to the front>>Character boils down to "grrrr I'm angry"Uh, based?
>>10054721>Ironically I feel like the best looking Menasor is probably either Fansproject or TransforMission.They are pretty sweet looking, I'd have went for the Fansproject one if not for the odd scale.
>entertain pastebinfag>he starts shitting up the threads with his constant boogiemanning and getting autistic over the OP not being the precise way he wantsWay to go, retards.
>>10054702Honestly surprised anyone feels much of anything towards these new stunticons as a combiner at this point, besides maybe some form of frustration or disappointment. Their bot and car modes generally look nice individually, but I'm utterly ambivalent towards Menasor and find it hard to get the appeals of that particular kind of combiner. It's very much the sort that can work fine in fiction but as a toy it's the laziest execution of robots combining into a bigger robot I've seen
>>10054712>Good to hear since that's what I more or less set out to accomplish with that shot10/10But no idea what's happening->Six-GunI still cannot figure out how to have fun with him. I wish I could trade him for some other deluxe. Ironworks and Airwave are good, hope you can find it for cheap
>>10054712lol she looks so dejected
>>10054622What happened to her?
>>10054733>But no idea what's happening-How so?>>Six-GunI do find him pretty hard to play with as a modulator, was one of the few I'm more disappointed with having. Doesn't help that he struggles to mix well with Ironworks for me. Another modulator would be a really great addition, wish I didn't skip out on the fossilizers. Everything I've seen done with them is incredible>>10054734Looks like I successfully conveyed how I felt how I did in my work>>10054739The arm? Popped off during posing. Fixed it. The leg? Slipped off when I first transformed her. Turned out much harder to fix than I had initially expected and her leg's still degloved as of now
>>10054617honestly post a bunch of em, it's nice being at image limit sooner>>10054634maaaan those threads are heavy!
>>10054751>How so?Why bigman fall over>disappointedWouldn't have minded having a Brunt as a Scorponok stand-in, alas. I was tricked by everyone praising Six-Gun unanimously. I've only Wingfinger for boners, but yeah it'd be good for Ironworks to have a friend. The bases are comfy, even on their own.>>10054775Hhhhhhh>>10054777>maaaan those threads are heavy!Heh>it's nice being at image limit soonerDesist
>>10054664Bro, look I'm just a fucking faggot that ENJOYS TOYS. I don't have the power levels toy does, I see something that excites my imagination I buy it. I don't do this drama shit man. I'm burnt out on motu, gi Joe is a bitch so I'm coming back since legacy and all I'm seeing are the big reasons I quit trying to participate in these threads. Road rage has shit ankles.
>>10054791but image iimit is the one unambiguous time to start a new thread..
>>10054814Going to reiterate "you should have listened to people instead of deciding arbitrary things on your own, or at least fixing the dumb low-quality shit", especially if you're someone coming back, with even less context on "oh this should be fine and everyone will be fine with this">>10054815How convenient for anyone who might want to suddenly spam 30 unrequested images randomly, textless and contextless, that is so cool
>>10054823Literally everyone except you is fine with it, you retarded autist.I miss when these threads were about discussing toys instead of having half the thread shat up by some retard obsessed with the text in the OP.

>>10054890splendid. I should play around with my own Fangry
>>10054879Are you the guy who took the pic because I kinda owe that guy a pack of clones.
>>10054898You should, the lil guys are fun.>>10054907I am not, but I vaguely remember something about this

>>10054958What are you getting
>>10055035Probably could have placed orders for more on there but eh.
>>10055094Fairly solid picks.I wish Pulse did more sales, I was so glad to get Kingdom Ravage and pic related at way more reasonable prices
are we posting cursed windblade pics?
>>10055121never noticed but the hand on this mold is kinda small. also people were talking about how the tail weapon should be removable, I would add that it should also come down and cover the hand completely even with its flaps folded out.. that'd be why you'd want to remove it. Instead of putting the flaps so high up so the hand is technically accessible.. because now the weapon looks weirdly detached and flat.
>>10055094>BreakerWhy, I'm curious, the others are more self-explanatory>core Wheelie out of all thingsGood>>10055121It seems so
>>10055184I've been collecting the Pre-Transformer Generations releases (Diaclone/Microman/etc). Delta Magnus is on there for the same reason (Slicer and Flamewar on there because I want them for those decos/characters, not for any interest in Fractured Ass). >core WheelieI think he looks fine so I wanted him.
>>10055230I've been digging the pre-Transformers stuff too. They pair well with the various insect Transformers from over the years acting as Waruders. I do have to stop my selff from calling the Daruders every time. Don't think there's a Sandstorm bugformer after all.
>>10055121She fits that body a little too well.
>>10055254anon stop, these puns are too powerful.
>>10055230Notice they are called Slicer and Flamewar, the SG thing is just a further excuse to make more repaints of wanted characters.
>>10055292Anon, I'm not sure you understand how retarded I am. I looked at Skywasp and said, "You look like a pretty good Daruder." I stopped and thought it sounded wrong. I searched "Daruder" and got Darude. I searched "Daruder Transformers" and thank fuck whatever algorithm was at work corrected me. Then and only then after was I able to remember Sandstorm from Machine Wars who I got on clearance as a kid. THEN I remembered I had "Predacon Sandstorm" who is a scorpion, which is a bug, who is sitting on my shelf next to Skywasp.
>>10055326>Predacon SandstormOh God, the puns transcend space and time. It makes enough sense.
>>10055326I must understand since that's exactly where my head went too. there is a 'sandstorm' and he is also a bug. so it's perfect. god it almost makes me wanna get him. i don't love the mold but I am kinda warming up to it, it's mostly the purple that turns me off.
>>10055366If I ever try stop-motion I guess I know what backing track and music video to emulate.>>10055371The mold admittedly leaves a lot to be desired. The way the robot face folds into a half-closed scorpion torso while the tip of a foot sticks out his ass is pretty awful when you know it's there. If you manipulate your poses well enough it's not as obvious. He's a little short in robot mode and there are upgrade kits to improve that but I think you trade away even more from the scorpion mode and double the price of the figure. You pick up Scorponok, Sandstorm, and alternative Scorponok (Toyponok I think I hear him called sometimes) because you like bugformers.But that Legacy Waspinator mold? I dig it. Some will say they prefer other molds. I might agree with that and maybe I'll track down some of those later for my Daruder army.
>>10055417>The way the robot face folds into a half-closed scorpion torso while the tip of a foot sticks out his ass is pretty awful when you know it's therehonestly the problem with those is they're so half-assed. there was no reason the torso couldn't just engulf the head entirely, but they wanted to leave a gap for the knee to jam in there. which is dumb!the worst thing about all of his flaws is how avoidable they were. the squarey legs don't add to either mode.
>>10055230>Pre-Transformer Generations releases>not for any interest in Fractured AssOk fair enough, that's uncommon. Hope they release more of the sort of bots that you want!>I think he looks fine so I wanted him.Really hoping he's swell, with increasing prices, I have to be picky about even core classes now. Luckily Wheelie's a favourite, not my photograph
>>10055476Is that Wheelie good? Oh wait who cares that character sucks! I'm just kidding a bit but seriously how do you like Wheelie?! If Grimlock had stepped on him accidentally in the movie there's a reasonable chance the audience would have cheered.
>>10055490>Is that Wheelie good?It's endearing but probably not good other than being a cute bonus (plastic and paint could have possibly been used for something else, etc etc)>Oh wait who cares that character sucks!Grr.>how do you like Wheelie?!I never got to get SS86 Grimlock, so I am merely envious of people's Wheelies (and Grimlock).>If Grimlock had stepped on him accidentally in the movie there's a reasonable chance the audience would have cheered.What a horrible lie, something typical of quintessons. You're not a quintesson, are you, anon?
>>10055507>"Spare me this mockery of reason!"
>Legacy Motormaster is in largest shopping company (empik) in PolandNow I want to see Megalo Convoy and dark times of shit distribution might pass.
>>10055519I KNEW IT.
>>10055094Did you just seriously pay 42$ plus tax for a shitty, tiny deluxe-approaching-scout motorcycle repaint?Jesus christ they really have you fanboys by the balls.Don't try to justify the price because it comes with an couple pennies worth of plastic axe weapon-former that is such a cheap piece of shit it should have been an afterthought much less an accessory.
>>10056842>n couple pennies worth of plastic axe weapon-former that is such a cheap piece of shit it should have been an afterthought much less an accessory.That axe was like 7 bucks when it was sold separately
>>10056842Flame war is hot.
>>10056842Don't have to justify the price, I wanted it so I bought it.
>>10056857Look im not that anon, but that is pure cope. Paying $7 for the axe is beyond foolish
I just picked up the entire Velocitron 500 waveThe whole line is very well done, Hauler was something I wanted for awhile since a bright green crane really stands out. Blurr is good, I like Road Rocket, more Diaclone repaints are never a bad thing, and I can't wait to see what they'll retool Override into.
So now that they've done another Laser Prime after the TR version, how long until we get a new Powermaster Prime. Will it have the full armor gimmick? An actual powermaster if only for display? A new Godbomber?
>>10054714I like how they’re both supposed to have the wheels on their shoulders and they used a mold that dosent for both of them
>>10056937Not for awhileTR laser prime was only because they needed to do octane and squeeze out cheap repaints/retoolsThe powermaster prime being a retool of UM and then potp being basically the same gimmick means it won't be for awhile.I'm betting 2026
Transformers Animated Sentinel PrimeAn Animated toy seems to have gotten mixed in.I've said before how much I like this whole package.The snowplow is such a good pick for Sentinel. Like, it's a public service vehicle since he'sa Prime.But it also has big "Get the hell out of my way" energy because he's Sentinel.Other than that the dark blue and pitch black windows are very striking. The orange compliments it better than I would think it would on paper.The shield and lance can plug into the truck but I don't it looks that great.>>10056904Look man, I don't make up the prices.A deluxe and a Battlemaster and a comic book will run you just north of 40 bucks in today's market.I don't like it. So I don't pay for it.
>>10056842You're paying for the pack-in comic, the Battlemaster, and the Shattered Glass exclusive label, not just he repainted bot herself. It's still rather high, but the entire SG line was like that - again, because you aren't just buying a repainted toy, you're buying a Pulse Exclusive with extra bits and a comic versus the standard release of the mold.
>>10055121I want to see her on Tyrannocon next. I think the reds and blacks on the torso would fit her much better.>>10055130The weird thing is that the tail weapon was clearly originally designed to be removable - you can even see the one peg holding it in place in that pic. No idea why they decided to tweak it and screw the thing in instead for the final product.
>>10054724Micromaster combiners were not a good idea.
>>10056986They used to sell deluxe figures with a comic for less than they charge for just a deluxe now.
>>10056973Sentinel only has about two movements to his transformation. But it's very effective.There's so much personality in these sculpts.Just look at that sneer. I've always been a fan of bots that are as broad as they are tall.Not sure how fond I am about the fake chest but there is no way to get plastic to recreate the animation version.I'm not sure if it's just because budgets were higher or just the priorities were different but Sentinel's head sculpt is fantastic. The sculpt and paint are both great.Not totally sure why just the base of his neck and his crotch are done in metallic blue
>>10057033So where is the real chest located? I remember that Animated Bumblebee looks like his robot mode chest forms the roof of a vehicle, but it actually is something more along the lines of a seat with the actual roof being the back of his feet, even on the character model.
>>10057033As much as I like how he looks Sentinel has garbage articulation.How is he supposed to use a lance with no wrists and no bicep swivels?Other than that he's got the ball jointed hips and hinge elbows and knees.No waist, no ankles. Just big funny blocks for feet.Was there ever repaints of this mold? Maybe including the face mask face.>>10057039The front of the truck is on his back
>>10057063You can pretty much hear his voice from that head.
Got Tarantulas today and he’s surprisingly great. Far and away my favorite of the deluxe BW figs.
>>10054266>tfw I'm just now understanding the reference
>>10057016They used to sell comics for less too. Such is the world we live in.
>>10056874this man is enjoying life.>>10056904i suppose as long as you know what you're doing is foolish, that's okay. i've put so much good money after bad fixing up terrorsaur and scorponok with aftermarket kits.
>>10056973i've never liked how the shovel on a plow is off center. I mean I get it, but bleh.>>10056977did he see that one elita or whichever it was..>>10056998probably safety regs or something. or they found the peg snaps off if used repeatedly..
>>10057069you don't forget Townie>>10057033SPOON!
>>10057101Got mine this week as well, and I agree entirely - he was worth the wait. The only things that bug me are a lack of storage in robot mode for that pizza cutter and the fact that his thighs are unpainted; otherwise he's definitely my favorite modernized Beast Wars figure so far.
Are there any Legacy figures you truly love? I've bought a few, but nothing this year has blown me away.
>>10057140Oh yeah, I hope I can match that greenish gold well enough. It should be simple enough to paint since the markings are in the mild, and then the inner thighs' cylinders.
>>10057140Yeah im kinda bummed out on the paint too. Honestly, I think that if we had to lose something on the budget, I'd rather it was paint than plastic. This might be what pushes me to paint my warhammer minis, just to get enough practice to touch up my favorite TFs without making big mistakes.
>>10057158in the mold*
>>10057154Really like Iguanus, everyone else has some issue that keeps the as ok figures at best, either weird limited articulation, random loose joints or plain weird design ideas.I find the stunticons frustratng as fuck cause they're so close to be great, but then they seem to be fucked at last minute on purpose.
>>10057154Iguanus is a personal favorite and I have him wielding the combo sword made from the other core class guys at all times, whether he's in robots mode or in a G1 pretender shell (it's an awkward tight fit but doable).I have two core Shockwaves attached to big boy Shockwave and I appreciate them as gun accessories on my favorite guy.I actually like Legacy Kickback a lot. His translucent laser swords look a lot better when combined and affixed to his body rather than his wings.I like robot mode Blitzwing when he's in power-stance-shitting position. I don't love the other two thirds of him though.I've got other comments about stuff like the Wreck N' Collection being decent redecos with issues here and there and you asked if people loved anything from Legacy and yeah, it does leave a lot to be desired. Tarantulas looks great and I'll probably like him when I crack him open.
>>10057212>I have two core Shockwaves attached to big boy ShockwavePost pics.
>>10057214Sorry anon, you'll have to wait about a day or so. I'll tease you and let you know he's also wielding Legends Shockwave with Galactic Man as his backup shadow. After fiddling with both Shockwave and Galactic Man I will say Galactic Man seems a little sturdier. Might be something they did with the purple plastic construction. Even the third-party kits to make them into guns fit better on Galactic Man, though it's kind of an "eh" effect overall.
>>10057305No space to work with so you need lots of extra parts to make it happen.
somebuddy just asked me my favorite 90s cartoon couple, and you know what? I have to say it's Tigatron and Airazor. the guy is smooth and powerful and independent, never a joke. The girl is tomboyish as fuck and still gets cared for by him. Plus their tragic ending.. that shit gave me some pheels back when my phallus started phunctioning.
>>10057214Not that anon, but they aren't the only one who's been combining the Core Shockwaves with their bigger Siege version:>https://archive.alice.al/toy/thread/9876125/#q9882378Looks like Corewave doubles as a Target Master, and can slot onto the spaceship mode of Siege's alt mode.
>>10057373that looks pretty rad>don't open a hailing frequency to me or my nacelles ever again
>>10057373>have Siege Shockwave and two CW ShockwavesCan I do this too... the gun handle peg is weird, I don't know who's supposed to handle it. Tried giving it to POTP Abominus because comboner hands, but it didn't work? Am I retarded
>>10057376I guess? You'd have to ask the guy who took those pics (whatever happened to them, anyway?), but it looks like they've got Shockwave holding it in bot mode too without an issue. I don't own him myself, so I couldn't tell you.
>>10057033>>10057039Strange how his actual hood and grille canonically end up on his back like on the toy, and that the chest armor merely imitates the front of the truck.
>>10057154I haven't bought a single Legacy figure, or any TFs in 2022 even. They're all irredeemable trash to me, after 30 years of collecting they've lost me as a customer. Cheap plastic, bad QC, uninspired rehashes and tired g1 homages.
>>10057383>whatever happened to them, anywayHiatus during gothreads. No, literally, that's what he said.>Shockwave holding it in bot mode too without an issue.Ahhh>I don't own him myself, so I couldn't tell you.Well, if you can find him for cheap, he's swell. Whereas CW I've still seen in some mall toy stores, you know the kind.
Speaking of Animated
>>10057394How do you like him? Might dig up regular animated Rod depending on the fun. Got him to be my post-Classics Rod, it was before TR was announced
>>10056977Forgot I got the best Blackjack to go with him
>>10057396He’s cool! I collect black repaints, so it was a checklist sort of thing, but I ended up digging him.
>>10057386given the look of his chest in the show that's not even surprising, it doesn't look like it's meant to be the front of a car, more like a stylized face.
>>10057387hope things look up soon.
>>10057394The guy that has lacking boots because someone realized everyone in Animated has huge ones.
Change my mind
>>10057432Menasor's components are boring because they are all cars while Defensor has a variety of altmodes.
>>10057432Bruticus is the best but I just love army vehicles and loved FoC game.
>>10057436>Menasor's components are boring because they are all carsBut they have more character than the Protectobots
>>10057455If you mean visually only Drag Strip stands out with Motormaster being negative points and if you mean in the lore caried by Dead End and Breakdown.
>>10057461I can mean both
>>10056935I agree with this sentiment as someone just getting into TFs Clampdown and RoadHauler just feel like solid moulds so why not repaint them. I was surprised by Burnout since her altmode is a nice little chunk of a car unlike my Skids, whose roof and doors don't tab in. someone else complained about the same issue and later found they had two of the left biceps instead of one left & right, that may be the reason why.Blurr and Override I'm content with though Override's thighs coulda used a little more chunk or detail. Putting her in a bent knee pose exposes her red beanstalk legs.Road Rocket is a little more on the 'meh' side feeling a bit flimsy in hand when trying to pose her.Cosmos is a cool little midget. I kinda feel bad for the people struggling to get him because he's not exactly amazing though, the arm assembly feels like it could be sturdier especially with that thin plate constantly flying off.No Scourge yet and forgot to include Blurr in pic
>>10057508took the time to transform Burn Out but lost the cool orange hue from the afternoon sun, shame.still forgot Blurr
just Road Rocket muggin it up for the cameraBlurr is actually in this pic but you cant see him cos its blurry
I caught a random forum post mentioning that one of the TF toy designers "confirmed" that Legacy will eventually have Animated characters, but that they will be G1ified like the Prime characters so far were.Anybody have a clue as to where this statement might've come from, or was the poster talking out their ass?
Are there good enough chances of Scourge getting a rerelease/premium deco/etc?I'm not a purismfag so I actually kinda like the current version, but I just wish the transparent plastic on the shoulders was painted black because it looks cheap (more teal-painted bits would be nice too, though)
Found Jhiaxus at Target, I wasn't sure if I wanted to get him at first but like usual none of the stock photos did him justice. They always made all of his white plastic look cheap or like the soft plastic, but that's not the case at all and he's a pretty solid and posable guy.Definitely think there's retool potential but not really sure to who, maybe IDW2 Straxus?
im bored as shit, where's the leaks, even fake ones are okay
So is Earthspark going to replace Cyberverse as the "kid targeted" toyline that you always find in stores instead of the Generations figures you're actually looking for? Like how Cyberverse replaced RiD2015?I swear it feels like the Cyberverse show ended forever ago, but the toyline just never went away because the figures just wouldn't sell.
>>10057626>because the figures just wouldn't sell.Thanks to the lockdowns we learned a lot of the Cyberverse figures from 2019 were repacked for 2021 onwards. Cyberverse seems to have been a massive failure sales wise.
Taiwan has Legacy w3 deluxes>sauce:asian with big tits on fb
>>10057640When 2007 Fast Action Battlers outclass everything from Cyberverse is a good sign.
>>10057640>Cyberverse seems to have been a massive failure sales wise.Gee, I wonder why.But seriously, I bought one of these things for my 5-year old nephew back in 2019 because he couldn't keep his hands off the figures on my shelf while my brother and his family were visiting, and even he didn't like it.
>>10057154Does Cosmos count?
>>10057154Of the existing Legacy figures so far, I've bought Dragstrip, Skids, Elita One, Motormaster, Wildrider and Blitzwing.Dragstrip and Blitzwing are the only ones that have really "wowed" me. I was pretty taken with Motormaster until his right shoulder hinge cracked and his Menasor Ratchets started to fail.
>>10057618Jhiaxus is one of the better Legacy figures for sure. Though I suppose he's helped a lot by the fact he transforms into a flying nothing, meant they could focus on nailing the bot mode. Which they did.Agreed on the white plastic. I was expecting another Siege Apeface but it's opaque enough that the sculpted details aren't washed out by natural light.My guess for the retool is Thunderwing. Would explain the articulated hands.
>>10057621Some please lie and tell me they are making an Armada Skywarp out of Legacy Starscream
>>10057686YesIt's a Walgreens exclusive.
>>10057691Don’t care, haven’t had issues with them and Pulse.l getting their exclusives. I get it preorder at both and call it a day. At worse I get the honey app to track when it goes into stock.
Why is Burnout being called a girl here when his Description at Walmart and Pulse have him as male?
>>10057707Botcon comics and the fact the Japanese release has him as a soulless robot being driven by a girl that was the partner of said Botcon comic.
>>10057618Jhiaxus is a strong solid pick for Legacy so farthe yellow paint can be a little spotty and his wrist panels like to untab often since his wrists are pretty tight, but theyre minor nitpicks. If I had to come up with one improvement it'd just be to thicken up the plastic for his tailfin/inner legs.
love all the detail hes got in robot mode, could've passed as a regular action figure
>>10057642>Taiwan has Legacy w3 deluxes>sauce:asian with big tits on fbPost em...NOWand the big tits too
>>10057717Here's a name for her fb page: nimamatfShe was also source for Red Prime Prime and Megs.
>>10057718>>10057719>>10057722Seating of chairs, does anyone have good builds for furniture formers via the ER guys?This one is good but I wanted to make a bigger one for 1/12 figures.
>>10057738>this is the person buying up all your Cosmos'sbros...
>>10057714He has a regal look fitting for the condiment king.
>>10057707Pretty sure that's just a typo.
>>10057746i propose an exchangesuckle for my legacy cosmosi will await your responseyours, anon
>>10057154Kickback. I enjoy blaster but so far kickback is my guy, eject is cute tho
>>10057741Kinda reminds me of the guy from smt 5.
>>10057746They really can't help themselves, can they?
>>10057754youre gonna have to get through Guard first before you even think of performing such detestable things, pervert!
>>10057644And this was one of the better ones. Fucking Warden sure had a hard on about shitting up the kiddie toylines.
>>10057154Dragstrip – I love his transformation, the upper body is unlike any carformer I can think of. I know not having the engine on the front of the legs is a sore point for some, but I prefer it the way it is. And above all, it’s just great to have him looking like a Tyrell P34 again.Motormaster – Both modes are great, the transformation is simple but intuitive and I’m genuinely impressed how much transforming is involved when turning him into Menasor’s torso. He ends up as this dense plastic block that I find really satisfying.Jhiaxus – Fantastic robot action figure with a questionable alt modeTarantulas – Perfect update and the best modern BW toy of the lot IMOHonorable Mention to Blitzwing. Great robot mode but tragic alt modes. But when It comes to Blitzwing I only really care about the bot mode so I'll give him a pass. Wish the purple were a bit lighter though.
>>10057154the ones that i love are mostly the deluxes, skids is just a solid update to his g1 counterpart, dragstrip is just fun to handle, elita 1 is a good fembot. Even knockout is decent.
I opened it very carefully so I could take it back if I wanted. It's 100% not worth the price, but in my defense I really wanted it, or at least to handle it once. And I do like it, I just think I like $35 more.
>>10057707/toy/ is full of waifufags
Man, actually seeing what all the MPG Trainbots together looks like makes me glad I took the Moon Studios pill for Raiden.
>>10057769Blame the simps like the ones in the thread for not being able to control their dicks. Don't hate the player, hate the game etc.
>>10057746>>10057769The funny part is, no matter what you want to buy, SOMEONE on Aliexpress has an image of a big titty model holding it in front of their cleavage. Cameras, car parts, phones, anything. They KNOW.
>>10057770I didn't see the Instagram interface and thought that was OC for a second. Now I'm sad.Sauce?

>>10057867It's looking like the common sentiment is that she is a very good deluxe, but not worth voyager price.
>>10054241Love seeing anons have fun with their figures in the outdoors.
>>10058040And we have a Knockout!
>dig out some old Beast Wars toys to go with the new guys>most of them in great condition>Iguanus sadly fell prey to a teething puppyWelp. Guess I'm getting the Vintage release afterall.
>>10058126I wish they'd re-release some later figures like fuzors or transmetals. I had most of the originals but quit collecting when I thought I was getting too old (and yet I kept watching the show and looking up pictures and reviews online).
>>10058133Same here. I only have so many year 1 and 2 toys because those were the final years my parents still bought me toys. They cut me off right as the Fuzors and Transmetals came out.
>>10057924They gave way too much priority to the altmodes, their main target are trainfags who wont transform nor combine them.
>>10058143>their main target are trainfagsAKA, all of Japan.
>>10058143MP always gives priority to alt modes.
>>10058154Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime (Nekoptimus) says hi
So is their any rumors of a redco of Legacy Tarantulas? I'm aware of the refresh but I like this mold enough I like to see some variants like they did with most of the beast molds.
>>10058048>thread is already up and in use>create new spam thread because you want to be the one to make the OPunironically kill yourself
>>10058170Not yet no. There also aren't a lot of options for him.
>>10058170It'd have to be a new character, or some weird thing like "Night Slash Tarantulas".
>>10058170No. But something will happen inevitably. Is there any deluxe that didn't get a retool/redeco lately?
>>10054791Don't you mean Quake as a Scorpnok stand-in? IIRC the recipe for a custom deluxe scale Scorponok is the Scorponok head on Quake's body with Quake modded to have his hands replaced with Brunt parts to simulate Scorponoks claws and tail?
>>10058186Oh yeah. Where's fucking Treds, Hasbro?
>>10054724Wish I could have one of them. Never saw them in the US when they were released as part of the Universe line. And when I go online they go for obscene prices for just one member.
>>10058143Speaking as someone with no real interest in Raiden and who honestly is kinda sick of combiners? I kinda want just one of the MPG Trainbots, largely because the vehicle modes look nice. Not a trainfag but they are cool.
>>10058181well they have been doing "Toy accurate" decos of figures currently and Tarantulas original toy(do we have a short hand for that? like B1 instead of G1?) is a wide departure for what we got in the show so we have that and the two other prototypes that was show in the commercial like the translucent brown one. I mean, they made a deco of Tigatron's non existent card art so it seems they may be crazy enough to do the same with Tarantulas.
>>10058186He got memory hold so hard it's not even funny.
>>10058114Gotta love it, till they get mommy's phone
>>10058186This would be great, he is a real sleeper hit of a figure. Not just a really good transformer but a damn fine toy in general. What was his airplane buddy?
>>10058182>>10058186Also Wingfinger surprisinglyI was going to say Quintesson Allicon as well, but I forgot he was used in that Judgement set
>>10058191Defensor/Sixturbo was a funny one for me, because I bought the lambo one by itself, figured I'd never get the rest and mailed it off to a friend of mine halfway around the world in Australia. Then some guy in the UK sets me up with the full team... minus the Lambo.
>>10058212Powerglide? He got a toy back in Combiner Wars. And a redeco as a Cobra Viper that no one ever found.
>>10058212Powerglide is who I'm assuming you are talking about but he spent most of his time in the Cartoon with Hoist, even as background characters they hanged around a lot. Now that I think about it Powerglide didn't really spend much time with anyone, he was usually used as the means to get Spike and other humans airborne and not much else. Really he had Cosmos issue where he got jobbed a lot. Least he went on a date with a human once.
>>10058234Powerglide was too busy dating the ladies to do much else.
>>10058234Hoist strangely had a lot of friends in G1. He didn't do a lot but he got a lot of focused episodes, like him him and Grapple or Red Alert, or that one time him and Warpath time traveled. He even had a few hanging with Spike and Carly and one of the few that hang and talk with Skids on screen. Oh, and he, uh, rode inside Huffer for reasons... He was like that friend that just works well with everyone but doesn't stand out.
>>10058190They realized those colors were too similar to the GoBots version so they don't want to make it.
>>10058223>>10058234Thanks guys. Power glide is the name I was searching for, man I'd enjoy an update. Warpath really hits that sweet spot of basic, almost boring looking but once you get to looking and touching the figure the charm and character just pour right out. >>10058243Such a chad!
>>10058258So? How many Bug Bites have they made by now?
>>10058269Bug Bite in Gobots was yellow and had a completely different looking robot mode, so there is no issue.
>>10058258I could live with a White Starscream and Purple Wreck Gar, if it meant we could finally have CHUG Leader 1 and Cy-Kill.
>>10058258are we talking Destroyer? Because Treds deco wouldn't look close enough, never mind how different the tank is in general. It would be a serious reach.
>>10058276Do guys like Wideload and Dogfight count as mini-bots?
>>10057154I really like Bulkhead and Jhiaxus, solid and without any major issues hat bother me.
>>10058258But Hasbro owns Gobots
>>10058324They only own the names. Bandai owns the designs and Warner Brothers own the show.
>>10058333Either way there's a Crasher showing up on shelves right now
>>10058336Juuuuust different enough to get away with it.
>>10058324They own the concept, not the designs. The designs were Machine Robo licensed by Bandai.Still, they've gotten dangerously close to ripping off Macross with Jetfire. I doubt any of the G1 Gobots would cause trouble. Transformer Treds is just a beta Warpath anyway.
>>10058336As a Mirage recolor. Not based on the original show or toy so it can pass.
>>10058336I can't wait! That face, the face of an angel. The allspark shined on her.
>>10058353Gobots have no sparks. Heretical bootlegs.
>>10058347So what's the trouble with repainting Warpath?
>>10058268>Such a chad!It's not always easy being such a chad.https://youtu.be/NntV5hLnVM0?t=357
>>10058360Being called Treads. Needs a better name like Decepticon Treadshot.
So what other Vintages are coming besides Tarantulas and Iguanus, anyway? Anything rumored?
>>10058373He's already out.
>>10057769>W***nTypical soulless whores
>>10058378Good thing you'll never interact with one
>>10058386Good. I like men.
>>10058393you have life figured out then
>>10057770I'm suddenly jealous of that robot.
>>10057770So this was a potential colors for Ironhide, but they chose differently? How many red guys vs black guys were there in the 1984 Autobots?
>>10058400>no big titty asian gfLife always finds a way to be sadder.
>>10058409It is more a case of medium titty on a very small person
>>10058359Hateful speech but yeah, no spark. We are all brothers in transformation though. >>10058368Lol, every man needs a friend but few men can handle a GIRL friend.
>>10058405He's an homage to the Diaclone toy.And Shattered Glass if you want.
>>10058405It's a Diaclone reference.
>>10058409Tfw your girlfriend won't let toys in the bedroom.
>>10058419>>10058416Yeah, but the Transformers were Diaclone colors originally. You even have weird stuff like how Sunstreaker is said to be vain despite having a stupid looking head and Sideswipe has a jetpack somehow in their profiles because originally they were going to release what became Tigertrack and Spinout later on.
>>10058433Diaclone Ironhide was never red. They made that up for TF.
>>10057746>>10057770i am enjoying this thread.
>>10058199honestly aside from changing the gray color to light gray and including two shades of purple and coppery purple, it's not that different. then again toy terrorsaur isnt that different either and he got a toy
>>10058419>DiacloneWas Diac Hound/Jeep a badie?
>>10058482would it magically become okay if they were over 16?
>>10058493Perhaps so in that french version of it.
>>10058495To the people who could be contacted to put him in prison? Possibly.
Convoy got tired of the microchange shit.
Fugg you too Huffer.
>SS BB Voyager Prime getting re-issuedDamn, might have to snatch it this time. He's hands down my favorite movie design of Prime, maybe of all time.
>>10058212>he is a real sleeper hit of a figure>tfw just got warpath yesterday for $10 He’s literally the best Kingdom figure. His transformation is very fun, he looks fantastic in both modes, and he’s probably the only figure in the last 5 years that every part tabs in properly
>>10058516Isn't the Premium one still easily available? I got the Takara anniversary version myself because I also needed a G1 Optimus without a trailer.
>>10058482Pardon my autism but wtf does have to do with anything? I really dislike troll hours.
>>10058523Probably, but I can live without the weathering effects and this will be much cheaper.
>>10058482All famous people are pedophiles.
>>10058526Fair enough. This is the video that made me want the mold in general.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXGmxem4mLg
Just stumbled upon this and thought I'd leave it here as it was quite interesting. Someone has made a 3D printed prototype-Godbomber:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DansdNEnnzo
>>10058591god we have come full circle. my first real solid exposure to transformers fandom was Prime Saber's page, and his scratchbuilt Godbomber or whatever it was
>>10058556Ted Nugent & Kid Rock sang about how they wanna fuck kids.
>>10058516>BB Prime reissue Um, u got a source for that buddy?
>>10058603all men are hebephiles. it's written into our DNA.dont make me get out the graph that shows attractiveness by years based on just being shown photos without listing age.
>>10058586I just can't go for it due to the wrong truck, same for the MP.
>>10058613Yeah, the truck in the movie didn't have cat ears.
>>10058629its loss.hey i'm just noticing, the windshield wipers are symmetrical. is that normal for this kinda thing? I've been looking at some windshield wipers for my turtle van, and it sorta has the same 'broken up front windows' as this kind of semi truck, but is otherwise based on a mix of a vw microbus and a standard conversion van, so I'm not sure if the wipers should be like this or they should line up facing the same way like typical car windshield wipers..
>>10058696oh also, microbus wipers seem to be weirdly mounted with the hinge at bottom center, and the wiper doing a horizontal arc instead of the typical diagonal one from a car. but then again, the individual microbus windshields -opened up- which is so weird to me. swung out on hinges.
Seems like my Walmart finally got in a box of these guys so picked these two up since I don't have the molds yet.
>>10058591Whats your opinion on God Magnus/Aoex armor Magnus? That retool 3p did from their God Ginrai as Ultramagnus.
>>10058708cool. some awkward parts but they're good colors in general.
O I got Draculus last year and I was wondering what Transformers do you like to display for October/Halloween?
>>10058649Suddenly it seems more and more likely the WFC SS Megs is going to be the Siege mold.
>>10058405Yeah I see what you're saying, they could've kept Ironhide's diaclone colours to spice it up a little.>How many red guys vs black guys were there in the 1984 Autobots?Not sure if all 1984, but was it just Trailbreaker compared to Optimus, Sideswipe, Ironhide, Cliffjumper and Windcharger?
Transformers Generations Thrilling 30s GoldfireThis feels like one of those toys people really forgot about. Maybe because it isn't Bumblebee, and it isn't Nghtbeat, and it isn't quite Goldbug either.Goldfire comes mostly done up in this not at all worrying gold plastic.I haven't handled him in quite some time so we'll see how he holds up.Other than that he's really a mean looking muscle car with a black stripe and quite fetching blue windows.Two wheels are pined two are clipped, none of it matter because he's got understuff that prevents him from rolling smoothly anyway.I am impressed that with this era of cutbacks they managed to get paint on his tail lights. That looks nice.
>>10058823it's an awesomelooking car in my favorite colors>worryinggod I'm terrified now, for years I was told GPS was a thing of the past, now people are saying toys from less than a dozen years ago are showing it.
>>10058823Car looks too cartoony for the mainline, give him a huge chinand could pss for an abimated toy.
>>10058823I know this guy is supposed to be Goldbug but I don't recall Goldbug having this much blue.A lot of swirls in my figure's plastic, some even look like stress marks from the right angle.Overall construction doesn't feel as bad as I remember but there is some wibbliness to him.Not super sure what to do with the door hanging so far off his back. They're so awkward from most angles.The chest doesn't really lock into place, so there's little to stop it from sliding back up its rail and for the head to make like a turtle and hide inside.>>10058845Worry no longer.Goldfire feels safe.
>>10058874Some strange articulation on this mold.The shoulders are on a kind of double hinge assembly with a swivel between them.Biceps are molded in such a way that the details on the bicep and the car panel collide if try to both bend and twist Goldfire's arm. Neck twists, and to my surprise so does the waist, though it is very stiff.Hips are on balls, thighs swivels.Elbows and knees are both on soft ratchets, as was the style at time.Ankles can wobble around a bit but not what i would call useful.
>>10058874oh he's meant to be a new version of goldbug?>worry no longerbut what about the time that comes after the current time?? you can't guarantee!not until we've been certified GPS-free for.. the amount of time it takes for GPS to kick in.. can we really say it's not worrying time anymore.>>10058897what a weird gun...
>>10058874Its a new OC, IDW made Goldbug and Bee 2 different guys.
>>10058910oh i get it, so he's the new "but we still want to have a Goldbug" guyi can dig it. and with the blue, he's more like Booster Gold. who is awesome.
>>10058912And then Takara said "No, they're the same guy, at the same time!"
>>10058907Hasbro's been trying to make Bumblebee's weapon "stingers" a thing ever since Animated (because he's a BEE, get IT!?) but they never work out
>>10058918one must be reminded every so often that nihon is not infallible.
>>10058921Oh, they do fuck up often.
>>1005892Its the closest thing we have to "Bumblemus Prime".
>>10058924>Hello, I'm Bumblebee Goldbug. This is my wife Sharon-1. You have a lovely place here, how are you set for energon insurance? Here's my card.
>>10058910no it fucking wasn't. Bumblebee got killed and they put him in a new body. Later Ratchet put him back in his old body.
>>10058948But they keep calling him bee, Goldbug was in space. Goldfire is a new toy only OC.
>>10058933>>10058924>>10058918>>10058910>>10058874"Name?""Goldbug"Last name?""Goldbug""OkName?""Bumblebee""Lemme guess last name Bumblebee?""No it's Goldbug""So wait lemme get this straight, You twos is Goldbug Goldbug and Bumblebee Goldbug?"
>>10058956>Goldfire is a new toy only OC.No, Goldfire was just a trademark friendly name for Goldbug.Devastation used the name Goldfire and this one was explicitly Bumblebee.
>>10058962The toy does't look like any Bee or Goldbug tho. IDW Bee was never gold.
>>10058962hmm there never should have been a problem with trademarking goldbug.it's a STUPID name, but it's not too overly generic because it has a combination of words..
>>10058988>The toy does't look like any BeeIt's literally just the old Generations Bumblebee with a new deco and head.
>>10059000By that logic the 4 datsuns are the same guy.
>>10058988I don't know how to make it any clearer to you. Bumblebee uses that exact body when he gets rebuilt
Sorry for unleashing this nonsense
>>10059029He wasn't gold, he was still called Bee, the toy is gold and isn't called bee, agree to disagree.
>>10059034At least we still talked about transformers.
Should Delta Powered Magnus be an official thing as potential reuse of any God Ginrai mold? kinda like it better than the fire guts (orange repaint) and nucleon quest (black repaint) repaints,
>>10058919G1 Bumblebee doesn't even have weapons so zappy zappy things is an improvement.
>>10059010Well Bluestreak and Silverstreak are. Smokescreen, Prowl, and Barricade are different guys.
>>10059034mah boii, this canon argument is what all good nerds strive for
>>10059075Have you ever seen Smokescreen, Prowl, and Barricade in the same room?
>>10059088Yes, they share screentime in the g1 cartoon.
>>10059088Now that you mention it, Bluestreak is said to be the only survivor of his people, yet >According to Selects Siege Smokescreen's Hasbro Pulse page, Barricade, Prowl, and Smokescreen are part of the "Praxus-native collection."It could be just the one surviving schizo adopting different personalities.
>>10059059Lets worry about actually getting a new God Ginrai first.
>>10057401>I collect black repaintsGood taste, albeit above budget for me>>10057618He looks too cool>>10057621Titan class Wheelie and build-a-figure Wreck-Gar>>10057746>>10057770Wh-what's happening>>10058102It's peak comfy>>10058187I wanted to do also that! Quake's yellow head would have been acceptable for Scorp too (which goes for a lot iirc)
>>10057604Basically it was from the SDCC QnA the TF team did. They WILL be G1ified somewhat when they get to them but there will be a better balance compared to the TFP guys
>>10059199i'm... okay with that. Animated went a liittttle far in the stylization.
>>10059202They should've gonne full animated with T30 Blitz.
>>10059261yeah well in this case the Animated one is just.. better. better proportions, coler shapes, amusing jodhpurs.. even the face is less extreme than usual, so it fits. though he did have two other faces as I recall
>>10059284Yeah, but his altmodes sucked even by Animated standards.
>>10059303i recall them being merely at the usual standards but I forget
>>10058597Not familiar with that one I'm afraid will have to look him up.>>10058732I don't collect third party, aside from the odd upgrade kit and owning Glacialord, I don't really have anything. But man does that appeal to me. Fans Hobby's stuff in general does - even been tempted to pre-order their Doubleclouder. Didn't Hasbro pull God-Magnus out of their arse for one of those box sets? But it was just a straight up reuse of the potp leader Prime mould... Was God-Magnus a thing already? Either way it was a great idea to upgrade Powered Convoy/Delta Magnus in such a way.
>>10059303The jet has visible treads but it's no worse than a lot of jetformers, and the tank is just a Metal Slug tank.
>>10059050I just don't think I'll ever see rodimus as a bad ass equal to prime. I'm not dogging him, just can't feel it in my heart
I know these warnings always fall on deaf ears, but I have once again risked my life to bring you photographic evidence of dangerous shark technology. Double-shark air-superiority fighters have been in development for years.
>>10059412>"Talk to me, Hammer-Goose" They already possess capabilities beyond 5th generation military fighters, despite all testing being done underwater.
>>10059199Oh... well then I don't care at all, then.How come G1, Beast Wars, and all the TF animes get to look accurate but once we start getting cartoony they have to be changed?If I want an Animated character I want them to look like they did in Animated, and I imagine the same goes for Prime fans. What bull.How long ago was this QnA? If we're lucky maybe their "working hard to find a better balance" has been long enough now that they decided the best balance will be "none at all."
>>10059435Sorry anon, they listened to that one guy who screeches that any toy that looks like a cartoon is bad and sucks and is terrible. You can't have toys that look like cartoons.
Hasbro Pulse just charged for Studio Series Galvatron and Thundercracker.

>>10059435G1 and anime are the same aesthetic.
>>10059435i wouldn't call Prime 'cartoony' it basically has the same kind of stylizations as beast wars. so yeah those should get to be accurateAnimated, even the toys had to make huge compromises. but they should try to keep the styling at least. the good aspects.
Does Shadowstrip not have an insignia? Why are so many figures in recent years without faction emblems?
>>10059942he follows his OWN rules!
>>10059942They were not sure if it was a toy with different faction symbol during G2 or not, so erred on the side of reprolabels
>>10059942I get your point, they are kinda nice but it does have a checked flag on the sides. Not a symbol but it's something.
>>10059986he's a flagcheckticon! they're the worst.
Core Bomb-Burst just went up on BBTS, though you won't find him in the normal listings just yet:>https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/220483?utm_source=Marketing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=marketing&utm_content=
>>10060000>0000Well it's gotta be true then! My tr blurr and scourge are available for pick up! Yippee. Didn't bother with tracking since I thought it'd take a few more days. I'm looking at armada megs or g2 megs with protectobot and maybe g1 onslaught or spinster next time.
>>10059942Man shit like this makes me wish the connection points on both the left and right arm of Menasor were the exact same. I would love to have two Dragstrips as the arms, even better one Dragstrip and one Shadowstrip but I would have to do mods to make that work.
>>10060126Really? That seems weird.
>coolranchulas is on his wayfinally
>Bishojo Megatron isn't even able to do "such heroic nonsense"We were robbed.
>>10058333Really wondering, why Bandai hasn't done a redo of Machine Puzzler.

If she ever gets a Studio Series, what would she transform into?
>>10060217She would be the pack-in with someone else.
>>10060217a squid would be pretty boring but what else is there
>>10060243what like, she turns into a cage?she could kinda do that already.wait what if the tentacles become the ornate blades of a.. kinda elaborate toboggan?
>>10060270I know they HAD to give it an alt-mode but... C'mon.I have the figure and I just never really transform it.
>>10060217She's assumably cybertronian but not a transformer.Pack in accessory like the first time.
>>10060311So is there a safety/durability reason why typical Transformers can't look like this? I like the grey and pale blue of this.
>>10060319Transparent plastic is brittle as hell dude. Have you missed everyone complaining about it?
>>10060319Transparent plastic is weaker than normal plastic, a fully transparent figure would have lots of breakage.
>>10060324>>10060323What if it had a solid plastic skeleton?
>>10060330I'm not entirely sure how that would work.
>>10060330Possible but I doubt they'd do a mold like that.For this guy they just made all the important bits not transparent plastic.But if you look at Mirage too hard he snaps
>>10054170are you sharing the role of the last letter of the alphabet with someone else?because this is co-Z.
>>10060270how the balls would she turn into that?>>10060323>>10060324it is not. only recent transparent plastic is.
>>10060383Yeah I know but he was talking about if a figure was made like now.
>>10060398good point. I guess I just spam 'these days' so frequently that I notice when others don't. even when it's obvious that's the only thing we could be talking abrat.
>>10060409Oh yes, I'm sure in the good old days they had a magical transplastic that was impossible to break unless you were using a sword made of transplastic.
>>10059942I remember in Animated Hasbro gave the toys gold and silver ones because "the vehicles didn't have faction symbols on the show but they'd appear in robot mode" so that's how they'd split the difference. Somehow. Hasbro logic.
>>10060311Retool her as Botanica.
>>10060435So it wasn't a live-action version synergy thing?
>>10060434no, it's not either of those extremesjust regular.
>>10060436That changes the question to "how the fuck is Botanica going to work as a toy?"
what if a fish-mode transformer who could half transform for mermaidbut then fanmode transform the other half for legfish
>>10060446Actionmaster R.E.D. figure with extra arms and heads to represent her 2 modes.
>>10060520Sounds viable, but I don't think they will make non-shark fish TFs soon.
>>10060536i'd be okay with a sharkmaid
>>10060576Minor spelling mistake
>>10060579looks right to me..anyway you could have redone it by now
>new leaker on tfwAnimated Prowl is reasonable but Star Dasher-Astrotrain as Velocitron ldr2? Nah.
https://youtu.be/cjoHlxlJQMU?t=24Jhiaxus can yellow or in this case green a bit.
Running behind this morning, I just imagined instead of empty country roads I was zipping along, competing in the velocitron 500. Where's my 97 Toyota Camry Hasbro! >0TARDD LOL
>>10060916Ha ha relatableUpvoted
>>10060899>that toy faggotspare me
Saturday my ass, Tarantulas has arrived today! GOD this new style packaging is rickety and cheap. I wonder who the cool dinosaur is on his packaging...I was gonna give his saw thing to Shadow Panther since it matches him and hey that guy looks like a psycho... but the blade is oriented horizontally, so it just looks stupid. also doesnt seem to fit in his hands. so I think that sucker's just going unused.the spider legs can't fold back neatly like the original but if one position was favored i'm glad it was the gunning mode.this might just be the most satisfyingly straightforward and simple and correct transformation in the modern line. the only thing I could possibly ask for is more spider leg joints at the body part, so he could lift his front legs up menacingly or rub them together (But that's really more for the palps anyway). I think unlike everyone else, I am going to actually transform him frequently and enjoy the process, because both modes rock the entire length of my cock.
>>10061324>I wonder who the cool dinosaur is on his packaging...Iguanus?
>>10061435doesnt look like him.. but maybe it is. just a stylized version
it'll be easy, i saidjust color inside the linesi'll use a mechanical pencil, it'll be easyfuck me it's really hard getting tarantulas's missing thigh details in cleanly. am I going to have to use a fucking xacto knife and make a... stencil?
Where am everybody? it'll be time for a new thread soon.
>>10061812We're in the other thread this time
>>10061866hey get out of there!!
>>10060893Samurai Armor Animated Prowl was fun.
>>10061866That thread is a pile of garbage, come back to this one.>>10061888yeah it was. i love when optional robot mode accessories become optional vehicle mode accessories that suit that vehicle. have we ever had a sailboat with the sail as the cape?
Hi sorry, I'm really late to all this, but I saw they were making new Beast Wars figures for Kingdom and now Legacy; which of them hold up in particular, would you guys say? I'm thinking about maybe getting Rattrap and Tigatron atm, and definitely Inferno when he releases.
>>10062047Those are pretty much the best ones, I hear Taranchulas is good too.See if you can find a deal on Megatron and/or Primal
>>10062047Turantulas is great, Megatron is super posable as a t-rex (though I'm wary of how the rubber material that makes up a lot of his skin will hold up), Optimus Primal is pretty much his masterpiece figure but smaller.Those would be my top three picks, I'd say most of the characters have fairly solid figures, though if I had to pick three of what could be thought of as the worst, they'd be: Rhinox, he's a real bitch to transform and his robot mode could be better. Waspinator, mostly alright, just has a issue of his torso not really locking in place and his gun being lame, that's about it.Scorponock, this guy feels a bit unfinished. In beast mode, one of his robot legs basically drags along the ground, and in robot mode he ends up super squat and not very intimidating, you can give him a hunched over posture by mistransforming his crotch and raising his arms at the shoulders, gives him more personality.
>>10062047Basically the things they do right are.. not doing things wrong. Which isn't to say they don't, all of them have at least one flaw (Tigatron's offwhite paint wash, primal's small head and his gorilla feet not transforming, dinobot retaining the chameleon feet and having all of his tan paint either missing or transformed into an ugly gray (and weapons too small), Cheetor not coming with a gun and being miscolored, megatron's proportions being a bit off, etc.) but the fact that everything ELSE about them is great.. makes for a pretty nice line and one I don't regret getting. it's just frustrating knowing how much better they could be. It's the little things, like airazor's chest-sides have no reason not to be her feather color or for her bird head to be so small.. but they also managed to make a beautiful birdformer that works, has the right shaped legs, and has wings that bend and fold any way you could want.. they're really mini masterpieces held back by tiny poor choices and budget issuesexcept a few who are just crud, as mentioned by others. you said you're excited for inferno, but he looks like hot garbage from the neck down, to me.>>10062071hmm post hunched scorponok?
>>10062191Characters like Primal/Dinobot/Cheetor/etc are pretty popular/famous characters, so on the bright side they at least are probably gonna get new figures sooner than later; especially with RotB coming out soon. Like especially since the figures are already really good, they wouldn't need to change much to improve their rereleases.
>>10062263that's the thing, I really hope the next time they do beast wars, they don't start from scratch. In the same way that these figures are often called mini masterpieces and share engineering with the materpieces, the next ones should draw from these. just a few little things to fix. a few cutbacks not to take. and, ideally, a better balance between show likeness and realism in some areas.
>>10062047Primal is my favorite. Rattrap is great and every time I break out Megatron I'm blown away by how good he looks in both modes. Beyond those three, I'd say they're all pretty good with the exception of Rhinox who is a legitimate stinker. I don't have Scorponok but he got shit on pretty universally when he released. Dinobot is worth mentioning because no one else has, he's amazing in bot mode but the raptor is sadly compromised by his hands and his short-bus eyes.
So are we getting some preview for pulsecon? >for the love of god fix yellowing for Lio Convoy
Breakdown pics for those that haven't seen em
>>10062191>hmm post hunched scorponok?Here's a pic.
Underwhelmingly, almost identical to Wildrider
>>10062745He's got new crotch? of all parts to prioritise, the crotch? Fucking crankcase has more retooling, I'd rather him and the terrible Pointblank be skipped if it means giving Breakdown a fully fledged original figure.
>>10062774If they retool half the figure., they can re-use half the figure.And soon you'll see the G2 repaint, and probably any other repaint they can pull out of their ass.
>>10062047I actually got a kingdom tigatron from a Ross yesterday. I think he’s pretty good, solid joints (a bit too tight but not bad) and the articulation is fine. The only weird thing about it is that some pieces of him are in this yellowish white paint. For me it’s fine but idk about others.
>>10062744yeah that does look a little better. I might try that.>>10063058yes this is a known thing. they wanted to give him his off-white like he has in the cartoon and like tigers have, but they fucked it upinstead of "everywhere but the underbelly, muzzle, and cheeks" they did.. legs, middle-arms, cheeks, and an uneven patch of the lower back. I had to add my own inkwash to fix it.
>>10063126>has in the cartoonNo, it was another attempt at making an altmode look "realistic", cartoon Tigatron didn't had any piss on his furcoat.
