also to that anon with the new leaks pastebin, i aks'd you last time but you didn't provide, so I couldn't include it this time. Let me know if you've still got it. I imagine leaks have to be updated often.
>>10235884I like this one so much more than the other one
>>10235892I like both! but I do like this one better.>>10235903oh you
>>10235884I like how she looks. I might be a heathen, but I've always preferred the mechaical looking beast forms rather than natural looking.
>>10235995Too bad those fucks over at hasblow don't bring back transmetals.
>>10235995they have their pros and cons for surea mechanical beast is less of an impressive change, there's a lot less of a striking difference between the organic and mechanical. but it's a lot easier to make it look good and to make two really solid forms without any 'don't look at it from this angle' shit
>>10236002They did Transmetal Megatron
I continue to be insanely irritated by the inclusion of tamashii stand ports on basically every release lately, but simultaneously the way that they're almost never engineered to actually work. Waspinator has one but only for bot mode. Inferno has one that's basically completely useless unless you unpeg his waist. It's so fucking constant and makes me wonder if it's just at troll at this point.
>>10236037It's because Bandai's their rival company and the team wants to spite them every chance they got even though Bandai will never notice it (the only time they did effective damage against Bandai was with the Machine Robot trademark)
>>10235910>I like both! but I do like this one better.Same. I don't mind the look of the other at all, but this appears to have some very neat engineering and a nicer bird mode.

>>10236079i would love a cat squadit's a shame most of them aren't that great. the majority are like "sure, backwards robot legs, those are.. cat legs sort of" and even the good ones still mostly just stand up

Is Soundblaster any fun at all, if you already have core Soundwave? It's still tempting for some reason
>>10236133Hes' a fun enough Tiny Soundwave, but at least on my copy there's some weird tolerances. Like nothing's "return this to the factory floppy" or anything, but some joints feel like they move too easily and others are surprisingly tight in comparison?
>>10236130kekthat remains a fun toy to this day
>>10236145The shoulders are a bit tight on mine, was difficult to center. The legs were pleasantly smooth, but the head is a bit worryingly tight. There's a tiny stress mark for the tapedeck and skirt joint, on his actual right side rather than either of the moving pieces. But other than that, things are fine for Soundwave, unsure how similar Soundblaster is.
I didn't rhink it was possible for fedex to fuck up my Victory Saber order twice, but I've been proven wrong. I backed Deathsaurus, but I don't think I'll ever back another haslab project after this.

>>10236188Hahaha, enjoying WarCat school!
>>10235884Looks way better than the flying brick that is the kingdom/SS mold.
>>10235884So when is this version supposed to open up for orders, and where will she be available? I'm not touching the shitty SS one.

Transformers X Armageddon when?
>>10236188I've always preferred the more normal face on the original Cheetor toy. The animation model and subsequent toys giving him cat features always felt like one step too far. He turns into a cheetah. That's enough.
>>10237480do you also dislike rattrap's teeth?
>>10237480Every character on the show except Rhinox had some of their Beast Mode facial features in robot mode (and while Megatron had a relatively normal face, he had a row of T-Rex teeth growing out of his clavicle instead). Considering the theme was there right from the start, I'm not sure why you would be bothered by it on only Cheetor and Rattrap.
>>10237747>Every character on the showI know. I liked the faces on the early toys more than the animation models.>Considering the theme was there right from the start, I'm not sure why you would be bothered by it on only Cheetor and Rattrap.It's not exclusive to them. It was a photo of Cheetor, is all.

What's your biggest Transformers disappointment of the last few years?
when they pulled john warden to slow the sinking ship that is power rangers, right after saving the TF brand post-bayshit collapse
>make a list of when my preorders will be fulfilled so I can at least have a better grasp of which months will be more expensive than others>Hasbro sending me emails all week of "actually you're getting it RIGHT NOW have fun :D"Literally a hundred bucks worth of stuff that was meant for Feb and March just happening right now.
>>10237825As one of ex-presidents in my country said "there are positive pluses and there are negative pluses". So negative pluse is all the money taken at once, positive all the figs you wanted are coming fast and in one batch.
>>10237772Probably the new Generations Beast Wars figures, aside from Tarantulas who's pretty solid.
Getting Trailbreaker out of the box and in hand, he felt super dense.Actually weighing him, he clocks less than leader class in mass, way way heavier than a voyager though.
>>10238074Didn't expect the Lockdown transformation, what with the legs being made f the whole length of the vehicle. Plus some extra extension.Trailbreaker's legs are the better half of the transformation, they're a lot cleaner and more well thought out before you have to tackle the panel-y mess of the backpack.The final leg of it, folding the arms out and snapping everything shut is pretty satisfying.
>>10237480Isn't the original toy head just a 5th player colors g1 Prowl? I mean its of but too generic looking.
>>10237944Core Slag and Sludge, Buzzworthy Jetwing Optimus, and Leo Prime and Tarn. If you were wondering what is shipping out sooner than the original ETA.
>>10237825a luxurious problem. i've got some non-tf stuff doing the opposite heh
>>10237772I only came back to Transformers for the first time since the 90's around Earthrise; I grew up on the tail end of 'Gen 2' and was really only old enough tin time to get into Beast Wars and Beast Machines. Most of the characters released were 'new' to me (I had never even seen the '86 Transformers movie or anything past G1 season 1, so this was my first time seeing characters like Galvatron and Ultra Magnus), so the only ones I could really be disappointed with were the remakes of the Beast Wars characters I had growing up. Airaizor, Terrorsaur and Rhinox were my three biggest let-downs - Airaizor and Terrorsaur had awesome bot modes that looked better than their originals, but the Beast Modes sucked (which is why I won't get the new SS Airazor for RotM). Rhinox was a disappointment in both modes, so he's the only figure I actually regret getting at all. The new Inferno's beast mode is kinda lame, too. BW Grimlock having the wrong color scheme was annoying, but at least I have a new version of my favorite character (my old one's legs turned to dust ages ago).T-Rex Megatron/T-Wrecks, Blackarachnia, and Tarantuals were home-runs, though, and I love them as much as I loved my originals.
>>10238256dont forget about scorponoki actually kind of had fun repainting grimlock. it helps that his painted white parts already don't match his white plastic parts.
>>10238181Nice, DotM Prime is really fun figure.
>>10237772Kingdom Rodimus, and Siege/Earthrise Ultra Magnus.
>>10238074>>10238082I like the truck mode and the robot mode proportions but it's hard for me to be thrilled or impressed given the price.
>>10238317I could have gotten a million different versions of him before, but I wanted that trailer because I think it just looks cool in both modes.
>>10238074>>10238082>MP Trailbreaker out of all thingsWhy?
>>10235884Is there any release date for these mainline figures?
>>10238422Probably three weeks before the movie comes out
>>10236781And the UK...
>>10238404So are you but that doesn't answer my question
>>10238082I actually heard nice things about the backpack myself. Could you elaborate? I haven't had the time to open mine yet.
>>10238457There's some subtle shape changing going on that I do like but some other stuff that just does not feel good.The main side panels are obviously painted clear plastic and transformation requires not only hinging them but sliding them in their hinges.And, maybe I did it wrong, but the shoulder gun requires a lot more flex that I would have liked to get it around where it needs to go
>>10236437>New thread on bump limitKeep to your own shit thread and stop advertising your thread here
>>10238496don't reply to it
So anything yellowing lately?
>>10238455Nttf, but I believe he was saying trailbreaker is cool in response to your question of why he purchased trailbreaker. So he bought the trailbreaker figure simply because he has an interest in the design or character trailbreaker.
>>10238513Fair, I don't love him or hate him, but he looks a bit dopey and elongated (Trailbreaker)>>10238507I'm doing much better, thank you

I might just be a boring person, but I didn't like any of the mainframe changes. The show was endearing enough that they grew on me over time, but I would have liked it better If they just translated designs from G1 into animals.

>>10238835Maybe the tolerances on the God Neptune set were worse, but based off of owning those versions of the molds, I'd say absolutely not. There is so much play in the the combined thighs and ankle joints that you have to prop him against the wall.And even then he's not guaranteed not to fall and shatter into chum.

New Scourge render, most likely this was used as material for SS version.
>>10239057Thank you you glorious bastard, you never fail to provide some positive vibes when I need them in the morning.
I hope the 3rd year of Legacy we get Energon Optimus. I didn't even watch the show but I like the combine gimmick. If not, a better version of Cybertron Optimus that's not a lazy remold.
>>10239253I wouldn't mind an energon or armada Optimus but I really want a fire convoy/robots in disguise op.
>tfw this piece of shit exists so now we won't get a good SS Sentinel Prime
>>10239614What's wrong with that.
>>10239616No shield? No gun, no wrists?
>>10239618Oh yeah fair enough.
>>10239618It has wrists
Is Elita 1 worth it?I like the look of her bot mode and even like her Homer-esque altmode. But I've heard rumors that her plastic feels cheap and her joints are loose.
>>10239660>plastic feels cheapThat's everything now.
>>10239660I have both her and Minerva and I'm happy with the figures for the most part, plastic feels fine to me but her feet are on an awkward hinge that makes her hard to pose and the backpack joint on my Minerva is loose so it doesn't stay in place on her back.
>>10239614it looks good to me, but from what i remember of how he looked in the movie, this isn't it. much more white and silver, and more red on the altmode.
>>10239660she looks awesome to me, but at these price points? get her on discount.>>10239671yeah those two right now, if you put a gun to my head or gave me a pile of money on the condition it be spent on transformers that aren't animal dudes, that's where it would go.
>>10239614It may be a terrible toy, but it looks pretty cool.
>>10239755i would go as far as to say it looks significantly better than he looked in the movie.but that's not studio series's job.
>>10239773You'd be wrong.
>>10239778see? WAY more silver. There's silver everywhere that there's red. and to me, that's too visually noisy, and too 'weak' a color scheme.this new version with zero silver is better, though the blades being black is kinda dumb but the blades also look stupid, so
>>102396607 out of 10, but she's still the best Elita figure we've gotten to date.
Which Optimus releases does he combine with?
>>10239660I'm planning on getting her, but I'm a fem bot fan. The only thing I see that I do not like are the wheels, looks cheap seeing them naked in bot like that. I'm sure someone will make a cover.
>>10239879it's listed on the wiki. either way though it ruined him once again. I just one one proper movie jetfire that looks right an dhas the good shapes and proportions, leave out that combiner shit. I just want him to have proper calves and feet.
Hes pretty cool10/10 Where can i get crasher for cheap?
>>10239879SS32 I believe
>>10236449They were cool guys other than Backstop, but the sample size is a bit small since you had popular animals like wolf, lion, dinosaur, and dragon for the representatives. Beast Wars itself had all kinds of crazy animals, so it might be useful to see more examples to determine if that is true.
>>10239815What is bad about the Starscream-forked one? She feels powerful, like someone that could feasibly fight alongside Optimus Prime.
Does anyone know if there'll be a new sunstreaker in legacy. I don't want to drop 70$ for spinout. I got all my other diaklone stuff on clearance
>>10240073probably not gonna be a new one anytime soon, but the designer guy hated the color matching of the ER one, so there's a chance that mold can get reissued with better matching yellows.
>>10235995it's fine for an evolution of organic forms but weird to just start off like that
>>10237759the toy was shit though, I really wish they redo it
>>10240080well the baymovies are still soft canon right? so mechanical animals is an established thing. from scorponok to the dinobots to that burrowing worm thing.
>>10239165looks like it's from Prime. Too cartoony for my taste
>>10240081it really was. i loved mine as a kid, but I definitely had problems with it too. that i didn't want to say out loud.tripredacus was way better.
>>10240082I would like to see organic forms at least but the CGI for organic beasts seems out of their scope
Was the SS Devastator any good? I missed out on it and wondering if it's worth getting even though it's expensive as fuck
>>10240082Those are Planet Cybertron scorpions, insects, cats, birds, burrowing worms. I don't think the driller even had an altmode though.
>>10240089we've had goodlooking cg animals for years now but we've had badlooking ones just as long. for some reason they just don't seem to get it sometimes.but also that's really not what the movieverse is about, it wouldn't do to have organic animal modes, it would add nothing and it wouldn't feel like they could stand toe to toe with these jagged metal giants.
>>10240093does it LOOK good to you?>>10240098neither did scorponok. but the point is the dinobots were based on earth dinosaurs, so why not earth cheetahs, falcons, gorillas, and rhinos?
>>10240102>does it LOOK good to you?I mean the movie one was a giant mess as well so I don't really know.
>>10240093They fact that they can do the combination is neat but I think having a squad of Constructicons is cooler
>>10240104go watch it again. aside from the blur and shakycam shit, it might have had some of the best designs of the entire series. and devastator is one of them. what a gorgeous monster robot that is.
>>10240120hell by comparison, the previous giant toy version of him was a lot better, and neither of them is able to knucklewalki think this one cheated by not giving the individual parts robot modes though
>>10240120It feels like a bunch of guys that were stuck together as a larger body instead of 5-6 guys neatly forming arms/shins/torso of a bigger guy.
>>10240100>we've had goodlooking cg animals for years now really? They still go into uncanny valley still> it would add nothing and it wouldn't feel like they could stand toe to toe with these jagged metal giants.lorewise they're supposed to be more advanced and energy efficient. I would like to see like the smaller organic ones out maneuver the metal giants and pack even stronger firepower in their weapons.
>>10240093the head sticking out of his torso is awkward too. So definitely not worth the $800ish?
>>10240131that's fine if it's not to your taste, but the GUY they make is pretty fucking awesome. and I want to see more cool beastlike robot forms like this. It's bueno bueno in a way that a regular 5-6 guy combiner never could be, because each piece is so small that treads can become toes and shovels can become fingers. Plus the hunchback, plus the gorilla proportions, plus digitigrade legs.>>10240139like i said, we've also had bad ones for ages. the ones in black panther had no excuse. you had andy serkis IN your movie, you couldn't ask him to look over your animals?
>>10240153It doesn't work well as a toy exactly because of that unique look.
>Blue Streak (not silver colored)Why is this allowed?
>>10240173it would be incredibly difficult to pull it off, yeah.
Any chance they'll rerelease the Devastator like they did Jetwing Prime?
>>10240195I think a reissue of just Scrapmetal would be enough for a lot of people. Why was he so hard to find?I lucked into mine.
how much was the SS Devastator originally?
What are some good affordable combiners?
>>10240210Well they are doing a small dinobot combiner, so that should be in the 60-70 range to complete it.
>>10240217small one? Which one is that?
>>10240226not him but the core class volcanicus coming out over the coruse of this year. slug and sludge are already out. they're coming out a few each wave so you can spread it out
>>10240131To be fair it was meant to be an ugly monstrosity, not a well-formed, handsome gestalt. I prefer the latter too.
>>10240233>Devastator is ugly>Combiner Wars are boringCombination was a mistake.
>>10240233Yeah it's safe to say if someone like Superion or Computron showed up in the movies, they would have looked more heroic and upright.. like when the Hulk got Banner's brain and became 'professor hulk' he had more human proportions, making his giantude more impressive as he was no longer so wide..or maybe his shape would be some other thing entirely, but not a big ugly ape with a vacuum mouth. that was clearly there to scare the shit out of you.
>>10240307Computron has a beard following patterns
>>10240093It's a good set but like all retail transformers it's not worth spending more than MSRP. The box set wasn't even 300$ don't pay whatever the hell sites like TFsource have it at.
>>10240340anon are you having a stroke, or am I?
I want the smallest but strongest bot. Give me you're world-ender, regardless of size-class or continuity. Who's your fuckgiver, the king fucktaker? The Big One?I want to know.
>>10240394I think Countdown is the Micromaster who is set as the strongest.
>>10240394obviously rattrap.guy can take down an entire warship.
>>10240396I did too, but he remained in a big set for us.>>10240397Not what I asked, but that counts as a counter to what I did ask for, ergo this passes.
>>10240402you said smallest but strongest, i'm confused
>>10240415Sorry, I probably meant "devastating despite size", rather than necessarily "hey Huffer's fuckstrong with his arms", albeit for the sake of discussion, I'm not going to foreskin foreclose discussions about the stuff the Countdown and Rattrap replies meant either. I was looking for headcanon stuff, to appreciate core/legends/deluxe guys, but I'm fond of the other answers so far regardless.
>>10237825same, but i am very happy it releases now. i NEEEED my lio convoy
>waiting for wave 3 for Convoy and MegatronAt least time passes really fast, VS should be next month.
>>10240469Fun haul, Crosshair is coming this week.
>>10240453me too. might not be perfect but i waaant him.
>>10240471>Welcome to Australia
>>10240472give him a black edge around the eyes and some pupils and he looks miiiiiles better
>>10240471How do you find 'ut rud? Any issues?
>>10238343>Siege/Earthrise Ultra MagnusEarthrise was a shitty half measure which will soon be made obsolete by a proper earth mode, but I think Siege was a great toy. I like having a Magnus whose cab/inner bot isn't just a carbon copy of Optimus. My only complaints are the battle damage (which isn't as bad as other Siege figures, but I'd still prefer none at all), and his feet in armored mode forcing an A stance. They have articulation to do splits, but can't rotate in the other direction to stand up straight, which is an odd thing to me.
>>10240568Pretty great figure, no issues, no loose joints. Takes a bit to pose but is worth getting. Also his knees work weird. You need to push his lower legs a bit to the side to give him 90 degree bend.
>>10240394Rung and Red Rung. In my little stories they control life and death respectively and when powered by the titan master matrices Overlord controls the power of evolution itself!(Speaking of evolution radiation too bad there wasn't a green translucent titan master matrix)
Got my buddy a legacy blaster with eject. Now looking at the core rumble made me think are there any cassettes like eject that would work with said legacy blaster?Possibly something that isn't that hard to find (oldland) and isn't an exclusive special package released in only few units that goes hundreds of dollars just because scalpers say so
>>10240601Siege ones and GS pack of recolors.
>>10240617Nta, is core ravage compatible?
>>10240690SS Bee one? NoSiege Ravage, Lasereak etc. Yes
>>10240196Scrapmetal and those Deluxe Constructicons were peg warming for a long, long time ... until we started getting the Voyager and Leader Constructicons and I guess people realized "Oh, right. This guys is part of a combiner." and quickly bought him up.I never saw Scrapper or Long Haul in-store and only lucked out on finding Mixmaster and Overload.
>>10240575>I like having a Magnus whose cab/inner bot isn't just a carbon copy of OptimusIt's nice in concept, but it was a compromised turd in execution. Given what they tried to pass off as a "leader" with ER Optimus it's not surprising, but the core figure is genuinely shit.
>>10240735How is the core figure shit? It's a fully functional voyager class figure with no sacrifices in articulation.
>>10240752The alt mode is pretty embarrassing. Of course it looks better with the trailer, but if it needs the trailer to look passable that kind of defeats the purpose of having the figure independent from it.
Generation selects reverse convoy?
>>10240617the ones i find are only decepticons, aren't there autobots colors?btw sorry for the dumb questions
>>10240704Hightower shelfwarmed super hard, but I don't think Scrapmetal's wave ever made it to Canada. The voyagers had decent enough, but Scavenger shelfwarmed hard too
>>10240763Nope, only decepticons were made at this point. Rest is with SG Blaster and soon to be leaked Evolution Twincast. So no solo autobot cassets.
>>10240765Scrapmetal's wave fucked him over. The original case assortment was>3x (Car) Shatter>2x Cogman>3x ScrapmetalThen it was revised to this:>2x (Chopper) Dropkick>2x (Car) Shatter>2x Cogman>2x ScrapmetalPoor little guy never stood a chance.
>>10240443lol 10/10 work anon
can't wait for this bad boy
>>10240780one of the coolest jet modes in a good while
>>10240780Getting him now or in blue or G1 colors. Kinda hopfe for RotF Starscream out of this mold.
>>10240785I would nut myself if they did him in g1 skyquake colours, but this thing looks so good ill take it in any flavour
Is there any generation selects leaks?Does anyone know if crasher will be reissued with voyager hot rod?I want the leaksCan we convince hasbro to rerelease spinout as dk-1
>>10240692Ok, thanks for straightening me out. Guess I'll pick shockwave or ratchet instead. Really kinda hype core rumble is out, odd that core is getting more of my attention now.
>>10240801I want some go bot homages in select, like bug bite. Idk, just something from far left field, like wtf why this character?
>>10240809Me too friendBug bite is too reflective and its hard not to dox myself
>>10240813Bright gobot future ahead
>>10240801Christ, anon, you thirsty bitch. Have a slightly more up to date pastebinhttps://pastebin.com/hA7ssSzv
>>10240829Can you edit the list to have spinout? I really want to get him!
>>10240231any chance they'll be released as set or should I start getting them now?
>>10240829nta but >Shadowstriker>Strongarm>devcon>voyager Metalhawk>Bludgeonpic rel
>>10240830>>10240841KekI didn't just make it up. These things have sources ya knowI do wish the last big leak wasn't so vague
>>10237772netflix Siege Metatron, its just a shitty unfinished toy with fake drybrushing
>>10240476kek>>10240491yeah I might just do that, so he matches tigatron better. and the source material. i don't mind the solid eyes on cheetor, but
>>10240829okay remind me to add this next time we have a new threador you can do it once we hit page 9 or 10
>>10240752Well for starters it is very ugly.
>>10241023>>10237736fair enoughi had more of a problem with his nostrils
>>10240829You got swoop on their twice in core dumbass. It’s snarl.
>>10241062I also spelled Frenzy wrong
>>10240592Oh geez, that's pretty rad. I have only regular Rung, but I adore him. And yeah, a lil green guy, even as a cheap promo add-on, would have been neat to have. I should dig up Overlord again, got him for cheap and he's a hulking mass... but TR just can't cumpete with Siege articulation.
>>10240813It's our secret sssh.. love this lil man. Wish I had more of this mold, his cuts a good silhouette. >>10240824Make it a six pack at like $50 and I'll be first in line. I always for get the plane, when it's red that's power glide, correct?
>>10241113Seems unlikely since that have done some of those already and deluxes are 25 each
>>10240860Well I mean leaks are like gossip or rumors. So you could kinda just add a figure or two, so why not add a Netflix bumblebee? Looks like a good line up.
>>10241069Don't worry about it. Frenzy isn't even Frenzy half the time.
Heard you guys like fan modes.
>>10241284Well that looks like a thing.
>>10241284This guy feels like another Core class that was unnecessarily scaled up.
>>10241284i do at thatthis is.. so much better than the intended mode I could cry.
>>10241299Scale doesn't exist in Transformers
I like it because he's a cheetah wearing pants.
>>10241314I wouldn't mind it at all if the forelegs also had it. But even as-is I like it more than Kingdom Cheetor. I might even get this one.
>>10241314Remember - neither are these are Studio Series, they're the "mainline" figures. This Airrazor looks so much better than the Studio Series one.
>>10241314>>10241316one hell of an epic meme
>>10241315well the forelegs have a little brown too. I think the intention was for brown mechanical parts to contrast with yellow fur textured parts, but they fucked that up. I'm also unhappy with the clashing orange parts, that is an error and a half. But I'll still get him.>>10241316once again the colors seem to change so hard
>>10241316It's funny because from the trailers this bird mode looks more like what's in the movie. I actually like the mainline toys more than the Studio Series so far even tho we've only seen really these 2 in terms of beasts.
>>10241113That set of minibots is already made by ehobby in the early 2000's. The story would be expanded in the comics, that the miscolored minibots were refugees from the gobot universe which had been destroyed. They made themselves as minibots to disguise in the cybertronian population.The only other cool part of the lore is Bug Bite gets decapitated, but lives, because his brain was in the car hood all along, and the head was fake (because the original toy had no head)
>>10241316When this dang movie gonna hurry up and come out so I can bitch about it and but the toys?>>10241321I think it's a safe bet that we're going to see RotB remolds of Kingdom Primal and Rhinox as well.
>>10241323The only bad thing is warpath should've been repainted by now, and it might mean we won't get go bots.Also the cosmos walmart exclusivity could fuck up the blue one. It took two years for soundwave to be repainted
>>10241316It's weird how cartoony their faces are for a live-action movie toy. If you'd told me these were one of those evergreen design toys Hasbor makes every now and then, I'd have believed you.
>>10241335Well that's the reason why they're not accurate to the movie and thus not Studio Series. Still, funny that the concept art accurate cartoony looking mainline toys have better appeal than the Studio Series toys so far (at least for the Maximals).
>>10241304I mean in terms of design. He's a simple toy that might have been forgivable as a core but as a deluxe he's pretty weak.
>>10241299The cores are better designed.
>>10241314Too bad he isn't a wolf. Wearing pants is important for werewolves.
>>10241316These actually look really solid, im a 1 toy per character guy in most cases but im tempted to get these to pose with my movie dinoknights
>>10241314>>10241316They look good, Airazor especially.
>>10241365I wish they would do the rest of the Pretenders as Cores
>>10241390Yeah, I'll still get Skullgrin since he's got a fucking skull head, but I'd really have rathered him be core too.
>>10241401This one has a cute girl as the OP. I like it more.
>>10241401Hey look, there's another pic for you pretend you didn't get from this thread to post in your dead one >>10241395
>>10241408Aren't they just stolen from some Chinese image posting platform anyway?
>>10241408Sorry that you can't post in the right thread, anon. Oh well, regardless of which one reaches bump limit first there will be another one made when that happens, as is /tfg/ tradition.
>>10241323Ok, so bug bite is a hard mutha and go bots in general are scamming a free meal. I'm not even gonna bother searching for that set.
>>10241372i love how for whatever reason, each version of movie ravage was still... movie ravage, just with a different prefix to let us know he's in night mode or something. I still got several, because it's a damn good toy and I can imagine they're all different bio zoid variants or something>>10241395that hollow thigh... that weird collar.. I think I'm going to be displaying this guy in beast mode.
>>10241443So how was Recon Ravage? I vaguely remember hearing that name in commercials.
>>10241447that's the one I wasn't able to get, but wanted.
>>10241284This right here sold me on this guy. Now if it's possible to attach let's say paleotrex's upper body on top...
>>10241316These look way better than the awkward kingdom molds. Wish we could have gotten these designs in the beast wars aesthetic instead.
>>10241542get that ass banned
>>10241542we literally did.
>>10240765The Scavenger shelfwarming was bad in the states, too. I hated seeing that fucker and nothing but for months on end
>>10241601singlepacking suckshe was a really awesome guy. but i got one for cheap 15 years later, so
>>10241646>ARE YE READY, KIDS?
>>10241578No we didn't
SS Voyager Cheetor
>>10241780Yeah mainline toys only for. This guy doesn't look bad like Airrazor but he just comes across as really bland. Maybe he has a good beast mode though? But even that probably wont be enough for me to want it
>>10241783Ok nevermind it kind of looks bad...
>>10241786Oh no its really bad disregard my last posts
>>10241780I'm thankful you found and are sharing this, but this looks fucking awful. Why deluxe and then voyager? He really needed this arguable upgrade? Are they going to promote him in the movie, as the kid-appeal animal Bumblebee? Again? Cheetor was barely inoffensive in the show, but here uh. Also>beast head just disappearsHow's his backside..
>>10241799>>beast head just disappearsIt's inside his chest. Note the pin at his waist, his torso opens up.
>>10241783>>10241780oh they beast machine it, looks okay desu
>>10241780oh that doesn't look good at allllll. maybe I won't be getting both versions of everyonepro tip guys, if the heel sticks out more than the toe, you designed a shitty foot. also what is that spear nonsense...>>10241783ugh he's all square and shit. this is a reaaallly ugly and badly-designed toy.>>10241786hahahahahaha oh god, it's a fucking bear. it's barely even digitigrade and it's posed wrong at that.. and the robot hands are visible. and .. and this is the studio series one.>>10241789what's sad is there are some decent elements here. the shoulders are okay. the forearms I could live with if he wasn't supposed to be a cheetah. it looks like they actually designed the legs backwards, there's more clearance in front of the foot than behind, making it only look like a long foot if you bend it the wrong fucking way.>>10241799... you're telling me this is a voyager? I thought it was going to be like a small deluxe hence all the problems. Because studio series tries to keep shit in scale.
>>10241799>>10241804here's the Cheetor that perfect for you, problem solved
>>10241812yeah and i'm gettin this guy, but I was hoping he wouldn't be the better of the two.
>>10241812It's almost comical how much better this is even with the brown pants. It's such a weird choice, without those it would be a near-perfect movie-style Cheetor.
>>10241804Ah ha, fair enough.>>10241811>>10241812Might pick up a deluxe or two, but not the voyager... maybe if a SS86 Primal looks pretty neat instead of grotesque, I'll bite. Scourge looked pretty neat too.
>>10241816well the robot face isn't great and those hollow thighs are an eyesore, but.. yeah all it needed was one paint app on the backs of the calves since those become the cheetah shins, and it would have looked tons better.
>>10241812I like almost everything about this more than Kingdom Cheetor. Curious how the RotB Optimus Primal figures will turn out.
>>10241783>>10241786I genuinely can't even tell what's going on with his legs. it looks as if... no, this can't be right. It looks like the robot mode shin turns itself around to attach to cheetah mode thigh for no reason.. and the gap it leaves... releases the cheetah foot sort of? god IN THEORY i can see what they were going for, try to give it fatter thighs and thinner feet to look more like a cheetah, and at least the cheetah shoulders seem to rotate so it's not COMPLETELY a 'just stands up' but... good lord. you could put all of that detail into the forearms but you couldn't give him properly-scaled hands that fold properly away?
>>10241809More like they Transmetal 2’d it
I never thought I'd say this but they manage to top Beast Machines Cheetor for being the worst Cheetor design. But who knows maybe the actual CG model might look a ton better
>>10240801so far the only solid selects leaks are the gaurdian robot and possibly medix, otherwise there's a few listings but nothing concrete.
how are we still on the "this is not the perfect replica of the cartoon" phase, this is the 7th movie
>>10241791Would a Alpha Trizer repaint work with maybe a new head
god that looks like shit
>>10241786>>10241789>>10241783looks way too chunky for a cheetah and transformation just looks like the robot going down on all fours
Did anyone pick up Dark Amber Leo Prime?I recently got the original Leo Prime and was just wondering.
>>10241780>>10241783I don't dislike this design. It looks okay if rather uninteresting. It's just a pretty fucking bad rendition of Cheetor that at best resembles his Beast Machines self, which it does poorly anyways. It's not as egregious as Wheeljack, at least I don't feeling anything about this. He just looks like some guy with a weird animal face like Tigatron (except I like how Tigatron looks) that happens to transform into a cheetah. He simply looks like no one meaningful in particular>>10241786I do like the cheetah mode. Even if the thing persistently reminds me of a monkey on all fours, or one of those horse costumes that's worn by 2 people>>10241789nice fucked up legsEvery new thing I learn about the characters in this movie leaves me more relieved that Rattrap's nowhere to be seen
>>10241855>at best resembles his Beast Machines selfNot at all. His Beast Machines incarnation was tall and lanky, while this guy's stout and shaped like a block. Also, BM's alt mode at least vaguely resembled a cheetah; this dude's alt mode looks like a bear with a long tail.
>>10241848i have him on preorder with tfsource, not fulfilled yet
>>10241780>>10241783The Studio Series toy compared to the movie design. Just a reminder for some who are confused, Studio Series toys is meant to be movie accurate, not the mainline toys. That said though I'll still pick up this but the mainline is far more appealing for having less of that live-action greeble they're so obsessed with.
anon from the other thread stop engaging gotard, its just what they want
>>10241888Greeble is fine, I just wish they wouldn't totally change the design of characters.>>10241899It's a sad existence isn't it?
>>10241913Not as sad as spamming threads because the OP of the legitimate one is someone who gets your panties in a bunch.
>>10241919ikr? Considering this is the legitimate one, the guy who made the other one is the most pathetic piece of shit on the board who desperately needs to shoot himself of ask someone to come over and do it for him. What a sad, sorry existence he must have that he persists even after all this time; when's he gonna learn nobody loves him and his life will have more meaning when he's out of the picture entirely? I pity the parents whose basement he lives in.
>>10241951Nice try, slowfag.5 posts left by the way.
a pimp named kickback
>>10241965"GET THE STRAP"
>>10241888>Maximals go through a thousand changes for the movie>the designers double down on Wheeljack’s nerd look for the finalized appearance.These retards deserve backlash for every fuck up they decided to let happen. Does Hasbro have a death wish or some shit?
>>10241960I fucking hate that SS doesn't do fun repaints like that.Imagine>Nemesis Prime>Murder Bee>G1 Ratchet, Jazz, Ironhide>recon Barricade - shit mold>Thundercracker and Skywarp>Evac>Burning Fallen
>>10242108Even if they want to keep it mostly screen accurate (despite the handful of repaints to the contrary), I don't see why they can't launch something like a Generations Selects subline for those. Call it Studio Selects or something catchy.
>>10242108Especially after that Thundercracker retool from Nitro Zeus no one asked for.
>>10241783>>10241780Oh ok so they definitely went with more "Beast Machines" designs in the final movie then huh? If Primal running in the trailer and now this have anything to say about it. Fucking lame dude.
Colors look fine to me I don't see the problem
>>10242136Everything about this movie feels like what Transtech would be had it been made.
>>10242145How about the Toy/Core versions as the Terrorcon Ravage and Divebomb from Energon
SS Crosshairs is really fun figure, arms are a bit weird with shoulders but guns, face, trenchcoat are just amazing. Now I need new Drift, Hound, Bee and Prime.
>>10242118Not to mention all the Buzzworthy black repaints.A Bumblejeep, a Bonecrusher, a RatchetWho asked for those?But no Payload, and no Demolisher
>>10242185What gets me is they even justified the Bonecrusher as being the duplicate from ROTF, yet we can't get a Deep Desert Brawl like the ones from DOTM?
>>10242118>Thundercracker retool from Nitro Zeus no one asked for.I like it because I can make a OC using TR Overkills head.>>10242185I'm tempted by Bonecrusher but I'm not sure on the mold.
>>10241786Oh sweet, B'Boom is this movie?
Mods please do your jobs
>>10242165Fuck off already, Zat.
>>10242201That clone was bigger than original, had guns and no back claw.
Bumblebee as a fat bastard who steals Spike away from Hound, and gets Spike to tell Chip and Carly he can't live without Bumblebee's friendship!
We get 31.01 Hasbro TF Stream anons.Quite possibly Legacy wave 2, SS wave 1. So not much new things aside L core class, Metalhawk, blue Blaster and Insecticon.
>>10242260So will Twincast have the other humanlike Autobot tape guy? I guess they must have bombed with the cassettes in WFC since they turned into package with a bigger guy ones.
>>10242267They are mold bounded so yes. Also stores don't want micromasters/small lads since they bombed at retail.
>>10242270Man, they really fucked up with those. Cheap, easy guys usually do great.
>>10242276Usually *are* greatBut usually sell so-soTrouble was this time they fired out the lowest effort targetmasters and micromasters possible.The only reason to buy them was if you really wanted some effect parts
>>10242220I'm not Zat. The Argentine is the natural prey of the Anglo.
>>10241828that's actually kind of uncanny. someone must have been a fan.. but also unfortunately a terrible toy designer.
>>10241844it actually does have some interesting aspects re: transformationsee how the shoulders actually bend down, shortening the torso AND recreating what shoulders do on a quadruped most of the time vs human shoulders.>>10241857yeah i dont get the comparison, maybe the chest?
>>10241913changing the design of characters is fine, I just want it to look GOOD.yknow, good? that thing that toys sometimes look?
>>10242397>someone must have been a fanWe do have quotes from the director saying Cheetor was his favorite BW character back in the day
>>10241960instantly hate it a lot less, but it still has tiny hands and tiny nub feet with huge heels. also pretty damn short legs in general for that bulky torso and shoulders, which CAN work if you have bulky arms too.>>10241967kek the wings positioning is perfect. like his coat is wrapped around him. love it.>>10242145cheetor kinda.. looks like some fossil cats or not-really-cats i've seen, with the sorta not-actually-digitigrade look and the dinky lil tail. somewhere in the bear... neighborhood.
>>10242422wonder how he feels about the result..
>>10242429It could be "it looks like his Transmetal 2 body, but streamlined! Cool guys!"
>>10242550this is why we have to hire people with taste, not just that enjoyed the show
>>10242553If there was taste, they wouldn't be making Transformers.
>>10242145I actually dig the bird, guess the colors really are effective since it's never looked this good to me yet. Wish I liked cheetor more, but I had one in my 20s and I've just only wanted that one.
>>10242571show of hamsis it closer to an amphicyon
>>10242578or a hoplophoneus
>>10242578That's actually pretty close in shape. The back legs are totally fucked. It looks like a costumed human walking around on all fours.
>>10242578Cheetor is a bear?
>>10242583it's amazing what subtle proportional differences can dothere's a zoid that came out somewhat recently before the franchise essentially died of kung flu, and I was hugely disappointed in how they mucked up the hind legs. short foot AND quite short shin. gives it a slumpy and odd look, unlike any real animal but certainly not catlike >>10242595these are just carnivores that are floating around in that weird pocket of the carnivora family but not any particular thing we'd still recognize. lotta really neat concepts god was knocking around before letting them die off because they weren't very good at being animal.
>>10242596This guy has extreme levels of greebles. Like if you said this was live-action Razorclaw they would just wonder why his colors are so bright.
>>10242600yeah it was an interesting choice. of course the real toy ended up in pretty bright red plastic and you had to do all the panel lining yourself to get this look.
>>10242707And which ones are you getting, coward
>>10242749You've bought you'reself another week.
>>10242760Ye'd ask me of mine, but have none to show for yourself?
>>10242770I'm a humble man, man
>>10242707Not a bay guy in any way but I got the ss ratchet since I'm desperate for a ratchet. Gonna see what's up with him today since I'm snowed in.
>>10243536You do know they're going to retool the Studio Series 86 Ironhide into him right? Besides the obvious "that's the easiest retool in the world" factor, Ironhide has nubs on top where they'll attach a lightbar and he comes with the twin pistols Ratchet uses in the scene.
Universe Chads rise up
>>10243759Congratulations for being the one single person I have ever seen who actually bought one of the Walmart repaints
>>10243799I just really love Universe
>>10243759I think I sold Snarl. Shame, he was a fine enough deluxe. Him and Reptilion made me really give Beast figures a chance.
>>10243729Yeah, I do. Idk, I'll just see this as an alternate universe ratchet. I missed the WFC one, but I did get the nemesis shattered glass version and one of those kid friendly versions from dollar general. something about the guy just appeals to me. One day I'll impulse buy a g1 vintage.
>>10244119I always thought about getting it as a novelty but even at reissue prices that's a lot to drop for "teehee silly diaclone robo"
>>10243759Ok, so it's universe cheetor I had waay back when. You squeeze it's legs and it does a sword chop right? Either way, looks good and now I know what I want
>>10244120Yeah, it's nothing I'm rushing to get. Still maybe one day it could work out.
>>10244124Nah, left is Snarl, a redeco of the Beast Machines mold of the same name. Right is Nightprowler, a tribute to a never released redeco of Beast Wars Cheetor Walmart was intended to get. Yours was redeco of Night Slash Cheetor, also from Beast Machines.
>>10243759>beginner furry artist kneesso sad, it's a neat lookin guy otherwise. also>>10243799I plan to get him on sale. But it's gotta be on SALE on sale, yknow. with those mismatched grays and all.
>>10243759>>10244204Is the Cheetor mold dog balls? I have and am happy with Tigatron, heard Cheetor's underwhelming with a breaking point.
>>10244302it's fine, it's just... it doesn't have a gun. and this time, the colors are mismatched. and part of it is yellow, and I already have two versions of this mold one with a yellow head and one with yellow shoulders, soand yeah mine hasnt broken yet but other people'seses has.
Yellow paint mismatch is painful, especially when one of the four guys they will spam forever and his regional variants are yellow. Why is it so hard to make colors look the same?
>>10244388wait, the yellow is mismatched? it looks quite good to me. the problem is the grays. there's at least two completely clashing shades of graybrown.
>>10244385>whip onlyMan, the whip sucks.. I feel they could have given us a shitty tailgun for Tigatron and probably Cheetor, compared to the buttflap and whip they have. I guess I can just pretend he uses it to latch onto branches and swing through the Siberian jungle.>the colors are mismatched. and part of it is yellow, and I already have two versions of this mold one with a yellow head and one with yellow shouldersHuh>other people'seses hasHeh, so I've heard
>>10244476at least tigatron's whip, you can turn it around and it makes a very convincing shillelagh.cheetor you're stuck paying a chinaman to make you a sword blade attachment (doesn't fit great) or some kinda axe head for it.plus there's the inherent problem of 'it's a tail. it turns into a beast mode tail. even if there are little metal locks on the inside that hold the joints fast, it won't be as strong as a solid metal bar, and he's fighting people MADE of solid metal'
