>>10242163Hey Go anon
>>10242202Retards like you will probably buy it anyway.
>>10242163So cheap looking. Garbage as usual from Hasblow. TF is working its way to a slow death from shitty g1 remakes and repaints and movie trash like this.
>>10242163So >>10235884 is actually a movie toy? How in the world does it look good? Maybe it's not in the movie actually?
>>10242163Why does he have a faceplate
>>10242213>How in the world does it look good?Speculation is that the better looking airrazor is for the mainline, and the more detailed/uglier one is more movie accurate for Studio series.
>>10242233She kinda reminds me a bit of Energon Divebomb with how the wings form the legs. Which is awesome, love that guy.
Unused Cybertron designs got posted by Don Fig. Not gonna lie, I really dig this one.
>>10242506This reminds me a bit of Titanium Jetfire in a good way.
>>10242511I love this one, the way the arms are arranged to form the fuselage should create a clean underside.
>>10242564It's a really cool look. Wish we got more jetformers that did stuff like that.
>>10242506the bottom one looks like it heavily inspired legacy bulkhead
>>10242564>>10242661it seems like a pretty simple transformation, maybe we'll get a legacy character like that.Basically the hip just rotates then splits and snaps onto the chest and the arms tuck in, done.
Excited to build this. I was going to get the actual studio series toy until I realized just how dogshit the transformation was.
I got the leo primal. Ill probably open it tommorow. Does anyone have any questions?
>>10242866Yeah, why are you such a fucking moron?
I had a hard time shooting him. Everything casts a shadow. I put him on my kitchen chandelier. He has 4 guns. They didn’t do round pegs on two of them so you have to pull back his leg hair and put them in hexagonal slots. The instructions encourage you to use the legs as little dew claw swords. Half his chest opens up and exposes a tiny matrix.
>>10242912His beast face is kind of weird looking, but everything else seems cool
>>10242912Nice mistransformed knees here.
The lion mode is kind of white. The tail is a bit small. I never had the original. I want the mammoth one next.
>>10242912>I had a hard time shooting him. Everything casts a shadow.Put him in your fridge
>>10242163>backwards kneesPlease tell me that's just a posing error when they transformed it...
>>10242502Those are fucking retarded.>>10242506That's kinda cool.>>10242511That's very 80s anime
>>10243027They areHis robot mode legs are the reverse, so his knees swing forward and backOther shots have them posed right
>>10242912>I had a hard time shooting him. Everything casts a shadow.The trick is to get light into the areas the shadows are.setting up little things that reflect light should work. Mirror, shiny metal, etc just outside of the frame of the shot can be used to redirect light into some of the areas with harsh shadows.Also if it's shadows HE casts onto the other objects, the trick is to move the light source further away. The further way, the bigger and fuzzier the shadow gets, meaning at some point it's taking up the entire shot so it's like it's not there at all
no 3ptfg thread right now so anyone know if theres a KO of this guy and where to find it?
>>10242210>3rd party producing better quality original sculpts>3rd party producing better quality updates on old sculpts>3rd party producing better quality direct knock-offs>3rd party meeting deadlines without extreme rises in cost>>10242949The original is incredible I opened my sealed one last night.
>>10243192Well there has been KOs in the past but they're long since sold out. You can find Eva repaints of the MP44 mold however if it interests youhttps://showzstore.com/4th-party-masterpiece-mp-44eva-optimus-prime_p3451.html
>>10242819Yes, it's the BW Megatron transformation, but the end result is still cool.
>>10242912The original pisses on this thing so hard.
>>10243664*siiiiiip* YepThey don't make em like this anymore
>>10243664I dunno man, those lion legs are kinda janky.
>>10243664>>10243673It's because it looks like a cartoon character instead of trying to be "realistic". Transformers are better when they attempt to be accurate to their cartoon.
>>10242949Give a few months and then he'll be Pissba the Yellow Lion
>>10243774So... a regular lion?
>>10243717Depends on the cartoon. The MP line completely fucked itself over trying to be accurate to the G1 cartoon rather than just being cool robots that turned into cool cars.
>>10243664>>10243673Vintage gold plastic tho...
>>10243717>Transformers are better when they attempt to be accurate to their cartoon.
>Motormaster should just be the cab with tiny fake cabs for feet because the cartoon drew him that way & Menasor should be its own bot with the cars plugged onto it rather than car limbsSaid no sane person ever but here we are, Hasbro listens to people who belong in asylums.
>>10243827You're being schizo
>>10243827Motormaster was no good for accuracy from square one because they changed the transformation scheme from the original heavily. The original didn't even have a seperate trailer.
>>10243827Honestly I kinda want just the Motormaster cab by himself. The trailer looks terrible and the combined mode is honestly a bit shit, but the cab/robot is cool.
>>10243882Then buy a Nemesis Prime. Lots of those are just cabs.
>>10243888Can't I like both? I still want to nab Velocitron Nemesis. Legacy Menasor's core robot/cab looks like a fun toy even if the trailer and its associated combined mode are dreadful. Technically I've already sorted myself for a Menasor with the CW G2 set and the upgrade kit (still less partsforming than the Legacy version, actually works like a combiner, is perfectly adequate in combined mode and the individuals are simple fun toys), I just think that as a standalone toy Legacy Motormaster himself looks fun.In any case an all-in-one accurate MM is impossible. It'll either be HUGE in robot mode or pathetically undersized in vehicle mode.
I want a new cheetor but the SS just looks off and the deluxe has those ugly as shit back legs. Paintjob wise I feel like I could do more with the SS though.
just started collecting TF. why is the Skywarp and Thundercracker 2 pack so god damn expensive?
>>10243973Supply and demand
>>10243922Since they're movie toys, I'm sure they'll get repaints.
>>10242985I love Beast Wars so much, why do these design hold up so much and why the movies looks so cheap
>>10243973I think those were around the start of COVID, shit was either over or under supplied. I hated passing them, and Netflix bee. Got stupid lucky and found Netflix soundwave at a ghetto ass Walmart.
>>10243827yeah I remember bitching about my first menasor toy too
>>10243827>says this>Motormaster is universally considered by everyone to be one of the greatest toys of the year and the only thing probably preventing him from being #1 on everyone's list is Victory SaberDoes it ever get boring being wrong all the time?
>>10243827>also the cars on the legs should be on the back where nobody can see them
>>10243973On a similar problem, just started collectiong some TF, the only way to get Skywasp is to buy that triple pack, is there no other way to get a new one?
>>10243973because voyagers now cost 34 a piece, so they'd be about 70 bucks normally, and then you're trying to buy toys from literally 2 years ago.A 50%-65% markup isn't that bad.You MIGHT be able to get them down under 100 if you're fine with used and waiting for a good ebay auction
SS86 Megatron should just become a flak canon.It can keep a lot of his transformation without running afoul of orange tip laws
>>10244180A title relative to the rest of the line only means anything if the rest of the line isn't shit.
>>10244180>people still don't get that Menasor is Motormaster's super modeStaggering how large the anti-fun crowd is around here
>>10244211It looks like a gun while also not actually being one and also is Nazicore, but it still suffers the "not mobile altmode" issue unless they just gave him a platform to move on, in which case you just end up as a tank again.
>>10244229>unless they just gave him a platform to move onSo Galvatron?
>>10244233Exactly. Even in 1986 they understood a gun wasn't a viable altmode.
>>10244229there is nothing wrong with immobile alt mode. It can be a cool way to balance his fire power. Its one of the appeals of Galvatron.
>>10244259Galvatron can fly and use his cannon in robot mode. Even for him, transforming is just so he can style on people.
If yr near by, I saw a crasher at the Carbondale Walmarts. 2 shadowstrips too.
>>10244279i always head canon'd that Galvatron and Megatron were way stronger in alt mode, they just couldnt move on their own.It was like a method to focus their firepower.Like the transformers equivalent of a giant mecha whipping out an oversized railgun and having to put down anchors just to fire it.
>>10244290Those are inly an issue if you fight on a planet to begin with.
>>10244290I thought it was canon that they are stronger in their alt modes. That's why they transform.
>>10244183You can try to track down that Waruder Botcon set though I'd imagine that's even more expensive.
>>10244404Fusion Cannon uses fucking antimatter pulled from another universe so that seems unlikely.
>>10244290>>10244404>His fusion cannon can convert any small amount of matter into large quantities of explosive nuclear energy. The cannon can fire a blast up to 12 miles and release enough energy to flatten a small town. Megatron can use his internal circuitry to connect the cannon interdimensionally with a black hole, where it can draw on anti-matter as its power source. The blast from this is far greater, but it creates a tremendous strain on Megatron to do this for even one blast.it sounds like he can ONLY do the black hole thing in gun mode since it specifically mentions his internal circuitry.But then again, he doesn't shoot out of the same thing in gun mode.
Bomb Burst into Bugly, Iguanus into Finback, Submarauder probably needs a new mold. I just want the decepticon pretenders finished (also commander class thunderwing WHEN)
I found these weirdos at Ross today. Sideswipe is my third version of this mold but I'm a fan of it so it doesn't really bother me. The knees on my copy are a bit loose but not enough to make posing any difficult.Maximal Skywarp on the other hand I'm really in love with, even if truthfully I'm not that big of a Beast Wars fan. I do have the original Kingdom Airazor somewhere around here as well but Bald Eagle Man just has so much more character to him.
>>10244418His bio just says that he can link up to a black hole, so the gun mode can do that too.
>>10244430Wouldn't that be pretty much a new mold since you have to replace the head, arms, torso, and legs?
>>10244430skullgrin can EASILY be retooled into finback OR submarauder
>>10244428it funnels the cannon energy though his other barrel.
>>10244430I just use Skywasp as Bugly
>>10244430>Iguanus into Finback???
>>10244443They could probably retool Bomb Burst into a number of other guys since most transform the same way
>>10244450That seems more like a shared engineering thing. Although since you can change the flavor out with thee shells' details and the particular molding details that tell what kind of vehicle it is, it should feel better than WFC examples of that.
>>10244438I was thinking more along the lines of the “massive retooling but shared engineering” thing we’ve been doing for a few years>>10244439Yes but skullgrin sucks unfortunately
>>10244461Most cases of "but X sucks" that happened in the last 5 years or so was because they split the difference between that and another release planned later on.
If they did a Sunstorm, would you want it with the Seige Seeker mold or the Earthrise Seeker mold?
>>10244474Either Siege or new mold. His first appearance was on Cybertron and his promo comic was also set there.
>>10244439Skullgrin is dogshit, genuinely awful.
>The near-future Airazors split the difference of Airazor's androgynous look with one being more girly and the other being more buff>Airazor(male) still has bigger thighs than Kingdom
Trap Airazor toy when?
>>10244551Most of them are. Transformers toys usually don't mold genitals in.
>>10244554Then how can I tell she's a trap?
>>10244558If you focus really hard, it will speak to you.
>>10244551the original airazor toy was a reverse trap
>>10244601I don't want a reverse trap. I want a cute femboy
>>10244604Stop being a degenerate.
>>10244604Legacy Road Rocket
>>10244606but it's my hobby
>>10244617Being that way isn't a hobby, it is a crime.
>>10244615That kinky bastard.
>>10244620that's what makes it sexy
>What if they recolored a guy into every other character with that name? And then every character who shared a mold with every one of those other versions?
>>10243258>3rd partyAren't those illegal? Also the same endless G1 crap?
>>10244622Your kind groom youth with your cancer.
>>10243258>>3rd party meeting deadlines without extreme rises in costI collect 3Ps, and lol. We're at the point where Legends scale figures cost $80+.
>>10244675>bug girl slipstream
>>10244439pic related is the easiest Skullgrin retool. They have the same pants even.
>>10244413Yeah, i think i'm just gonna end up buying either the pack or lose figure on ebay
>>10244686But isn't he an Autobot? Why would he have a bad guy looking altmode?
>>10244675Out of that person's designs, this is easily one of my favorites. It feels like a good mix of what makes the original interesting, the appeal of insects, and appealing colors. The only concern might be the usual beast mode things since the antennae are a bit too full for a female, but I guess you can ignore that.
>>10244675Do the Ladybug Deluxe Insecticon we never got
>>10244718>The only concern might be the usual beast mode things since the antennae are a bit too full for a femaleIt's a robot in disguise
>>10244180>greatest toys of the year>Motormasterare we talking about the same Legacy Motormaster? or do you enjoy being retarded all the time?
>>10244743Yeah. Such things have been around since Beast Wars, which is why I said you can ignore it.
>>10244675Suggestively placed groin insect legs for when she is alone and bored ...Captcha sjwyar
>>10244686I would kill for a Longtooth. I had one as a kid I got from a yardsale and I've loved him ever since. >>10244700there's a theory that he got swapped for Stranglehold
>>10244775>there's a theory that he got swapped for StrangleholdI feel like that's a pretty weak theorythere's not a whole lot to back it up other than "autobots are humans"but cancelled concept art revealed they were planning the autobots to be a LOT more animalistic too, it just didn't finish that way.
>>10242163>decide to check out a local target for shits and giggles in the middle of a snowstorm>the entirety of the legacy evolution deluxes are there>buy them all, but they’re not ringing up>they just say “fuck it” and give them to me for 75% offHoly shit I lucked out bros, also needlenose is surprisingly solid, despite his targetmasters being actually nothing
>>10244786"Autobots are Humans" seems like a pretty strong case.
>>10244823But Stranglehold doesn't look very Autobot-y. He's got that weird barbarian/gay porn star thing going
I just want a new Gears already.
I want to see his toy already
>>10244832And a walrus monster with huge teeth and a skull belt is?
>>10244838He's not a Walrus MONSTER. He's just a Walrus man
>>10244843Lizard man is a monster.
>>10244847My penis is a monster
>>10244854If Hasbro had balls at the time, they would have modeled a Pretender shell on that.
>>10244686I would love this retard.
he looks like he's trying to blend in with the battle beasts and I like that.
>>10244823starscream also got a human mode
>>10244875Starscream feels like he would do that even if it was an official rule instead of design trends since he is the sex idol of the Decepticons and non-conformist.
>Long time no see, Prime. Galvatron isn't around, so that makes me Leader of the Decepticons!*Starscream gets dogpiled by pretty much the entire 1987-1989 cast*
>>10244881the basic 89 pretenders were the following3 humanoid classic autobots and 1 humanoid classic decepticon3 regular decepticons and 3 regular autobotsbut after that there's no consistencyDecepticons had 2 monsterous shells and one humanoid shell. Autobots had 2 humanoid shells and one monsterous one.Decepticons had 2 animals and 1 vehicleAutobots had 2 vehicles and 1 animal.Decepticons had 2 ground alt modes and 1 sea mode. Autobots had 1 air, one ground, and one sea mode.So unless the original intent was straight up swapping shells with inner bots, there's no way each character wasn't deliberate.
>>10244899>Decepticons had 2 ground alt modes and 1 sea mode. Autobots had 1 air, one ground, and one sea mode.Sure the "Decepticon air superiority" was already nuked when you had Swoop, Powerglide, turncoat Jetfire, Aerialbots, and toy-only Whirl, but this is funny.
>>10244881>he is the sex idol of the DecepticonsJust because women draw porn of him doesn't make him a sex icon, you homosexual degenerate
>>10244926He gets upset when Megatron gets a girlfriend.
>>10244930Do you mean he gets upset when Megatron literally replaces him as his 2nd in command?
Will we ever get an actual Pretender toy that isn't shit?
Any chance SS Bumblebee Optimus gets rereleased any time soon? Maybe with the new movie?
>>10244978She is called a Pretender, but she is just a Beast Wars who peak cheaking design.
>>10244993Maximals/Predacons developed their organic transformation tech from Pretender tech.
>>10244992A SS RotB Optimus is more or less guaranteed, and judging by the design I would expect it to be fairly similar to the Bumblebee one. I wouldn't expect a straight reissue though. I'd wait and see if the SS RotB Optimus is good enough for you.
Wasn't there meant to be a Legacy Wave 4 with Cheetor, Wheeljack, and Twincast?
>>10244434I found a set at Ross too today. I thought I was hallucinating, but it was real.
>>10245031That was really outdated and entirely incorrect datait's looking more and more like it was some listings that got shoved into other lines. Remember there's a "mainline" cheetor for RotB and a "Mainline" Wheeljack along with Studio Series for some of them.I'm guessing Hasbro didn't have a name for the line yet so it was just listed as Legacy.
Mods continue to be the largest fucking faggots on this website only on this board. Maybe if I spam racial slurs or shit up the thread with porn these worthless shits will do their fucking job considering there is active admitted trolling in the fucking OP that they once again, refuse to remove. But they're clearly here because there are posts being deleted, so they're just sucking the cock of a known and admitted troll instead of doing their fucking jobs.Gotta ask again gofaggot, why are your principles so weak? Why did you bend the knee to us and keep the pastebins?
>>10245090Meet people in the middle of the road so cars can pass to both the left and the right in opposite directions.
>>10245101white line is in the middle of the roadthat's the worst place to drive
>>10244675>"How does the transformation work?">fuck it idc
>>10245057They apparently just got dumped with a bunch of exclusives, first that and now people saying Netflix Primal and Sparklers Seeker are showing up. I don't check there very often but I guess I'll have to stop by and see.
My first impressions of ss82 ratchet are quite good, I'm a sucker for light piping. Feels and looks good in bot mode, haven't transformed it yet, I'm going to refer to this as my combat model ratchet since I don't have any transformers in this style. So yeah, studio series is still great in my opinion. Kinda wish we would get a few generation selects but there are plenty of figures out.
>>10245472Talk about a shitty bunch of packs to getI guess the sparkless might be worth grabbing for customizing
>Fedex keeps losing my Victory SaberI never imagined they were this bad. I'll probably have to ask for a refund and get it from ebay. I even made sure the address was correct on every attempt and they still fuck it up.I might ask for Deathsaurus refund and I'm sure as hell not backing more haslabs
>>10245472>NetflixPositively devilish if Netflix Soundwave shows up in one of these stores so all hell can break loose even more than over Cosmos
>>10245530lol, doubtfulnetflix primal/rattrap 2 pack shelfwarmed HARD, same with sparkless.Pretty much the only thing that DIDN'T shelfwarm was Soundwave and Bee
>>10245547I know but it would be the funniest outcome
>>10244670>Aren't those illegal?To make? It's Muddy Waters much like anything to come out of China. To buy as a consumer? Lolno.>The same endless G1 crap3rd party stuff has been branching out into Beast Wars, Bayverse, Unicron Trilogy, and even some Prime stuff since everyone relevant in G1 already has like 5 MP-scale figures and 12 legends scale figures made of them. If only companies would go back to doing CHUG scale stuff too.
>>10245567Cool bootleg, faggot.
>>10245569>Cool bootleg, faggot.What toy is it a bootleg of?
>>10245567>To buy as a consumer?>>10244670most (but not all) 3rd party toys are illegally producing toys based on intellectual property they don't have the rights to use, yes.If they're original sculpts with original designs that are only loosely inspired by the original, it's fine.Like the bludgeon that turns into a walker tank, honekumoki
>>10245570are you trolling or are you literally too young to remember beast wars?
>>10245602What pieces from that toy are used in the TransArt version?>gun is a different more show accurate design>fingers are jointed>legs actually have articulation at the joints and can fold in>completely different arm connection >thighs aren't hollow and have a separate assembly so you have actual thigh rotation instead of just a balljoint>has an actual chest swivel So the "bootleg" is better?
>>10245617>>10245567>>10245570Don't argue with the resident retard, anon, you'll waste your time.
>>10245567They're really going to make modern versions of every other fucking TM2 before they do Blackarachnia, aren't they...
>>10245620This is a Go-anon thread, I don't give a shit if the bootleg whiner spends the whole thread whining about 3rd Party figs.
>>10245617>What pieces from that toy are used in the TransArt version?That's not what a bootleg is.You're confusing bootleg and knockoff
>>10245631They're the exact same thing. Even the cucks at TFWiki describe 3P as "IP infringing items".Also reminder that IP law has literally been hijacked by Disney for the sole purpose of having a creative stranglehold on the West, and it is morally righteous to break it.
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-Legacy-Velocitron-Speedia-500-Collection-Deluxe-Autobot-Cosmos-Action-Figure/308373193buy buy buy before he's gone-gone-goneI'm shocked they put him back up
>>10245632bootleg IS IP infringing itemsKnockoffs are fake duplicates trying to pass off as the original product.Bootlegs are just anything that attempts to look like IP that belongs to someone else.Originally that's not what bootlegs were, 50+ years ago, but that's been the definition since the age of the internet.
>>10245631Bootleg implies the figure was stolen from someone/someplace. Did they steal those CAD designs from Hasbro/Takara?Knockoff implies that it's an inferior version of an existing product. Are you really going to say the TransArt Tarantulas is worse than the old BW figure despite having better articulation/details?
>>10245639they illegally reproduced (stole) the designs, yes.
>>10245640From where? Those are CAD designs they made in-house. They aren't the property of Hasbro.
>>10245642That's not how it works.Just because you copy something by hand doesn't make it different than dragging and dropping a file.
>>10245358Airplanes are "put the robot underneath an airplane", so presumably "put the robot underneath a moth".
I can't believe that Airazor is going to end up being the character I have the most copies of.
>>10245649are you fucking retarded? the chink bastards are making their own shit, whether or not it’s based off “muh IP” is irrelevant. you’re talking about the definition of bootleg and knockoff, which most 3rd party figs are not. we refer to them as such, but not in the traditional meaning of bootleg and knockoff.
>>10245767Reply to this if you thing the Minerva on the right is as beautiful as the one on the leftt
>>10245791You shoulda seen me looking at em, trying to tell any flaws. Im just glad it's over and she's home now. I've been looking since August man, now we just wait for elita 1 and the next exclusive- galaxy shuttle.
>>10245774Damn, you bootleg cucks sure get anally defensive whenever your kind are rightfully made fun of kek.
>>10245697Just wait until they announce furai airazor
>>10245625But why would you keep arguing with a wall? you'll end up as retard too, learn to ignore.Also, both threads are straight trash.
>>10245840Why do you white knight these trolls? This is why this board isn't getting better.
>>10245833>Furai AirazorI might know what I'm doing with my second Furai Windblade now...
Earthspark Skywarp is agressively cursed. Inherited the issues that all Cyberverse seekers that were not Starscream using it years ago had in not being how they looked on top of this one not even having the correct colors for her.
>>10244670It's a grey area. But it has happened that dealers of toys have traveled to other countries and had their 3rd party items taken away by customs listed under bootlegs.
>noo just because it doesn't have the logo and he's called something different, he's pretty much the same thing as Superman with the same powers and everything. He can't exist!
>>10245767Man. Fuck you for getting two when some of us get none.
>>10245904He is nothing like Superman except maybe the powers
>>10245926>All three versions of TM Airazor while I just have oneI don't think that is possible. What is your Airazor army looking at now?
>>10245951The only similarities between Superman and Homelander are super strength, flight, heat vision, and super hearing. Superman has a much larger pool of powers (ie: Frost Breath) and weaknesses, let alone character growths/backstory
>>10245974So he is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
>>10245951and third party figures have nothing in common with hasbro except a similar appearance.
>>10245986Which is why they are illegal. Homelander looks nothing while Superman, and Superman doesn't look like Moses.
>>10245991>cape, tights, white guythat's it. Deadpool and Deathstroke are just similar in appearance too. They don't use the autobot logo or their specific transformation designs, they make their own.
>>10244747He's right though. What Legacy toy was better than Motormaster? Never mind Legacy, he's up there with the best of any of the WFC Trilogy years.
>>10245999Deadpool is well-known for being a Deathstroke ripoff. His wacky personality came out to make him distinct.
>>10244211Sure, I'll take that. That's a great idea.
Remember the child that was shot had a Motormastor toy to begin with, so the entire "Transformers guns are bad because they can be mistaken for real guns" is a lie.
>>10243973Give it till 2024. 40th anniversary is guaranteed to redo the main cast, and after the botch job that was ER Starscream, I welcome it.
>>10246024>Pretender Starscream as a retool of Metalhawk comes out in 2023>The actual one comes out the year after for Aniversary reasonsDevilish, Hasbro
>>10244461Hey now, only one of his modes is complete ass.
>>10246004a rip off isn't the same as copyright infringement
>>10246037It can be mistaken for the look and feel of the original, so it is copyright infringement. It simply isn't worth the cost of battling in court.
>>10246037Tell that to DC and Fawcett
>>10245945I got one, that is the store. There were five, check the Walgreens around my local area. Lol, like I'd buy two when I know other people want one.
Does anyone else keep heariung the power puff girls theme song in their head whenever you look at Dead End's legs
>>10246070Okay, I forgive you then. Hope you enjoy it, you lucky dog you.Still bummed I never can find even ONE near me at a reasonable price. Not worth $60-80 from some eBay scalper.
>>10246107NoBut that's mostly because I don't remember the Powerpuff girls theme songHis legs are def weird though
>>10246021That's an urban legend
>>10246136It's because he just recycles Dragstrip's transformation which uses the spoilers as feet, but Dead End's spoilers are not where near big enough to pass for feet.
>>10246141thats part of it, but I think it's also because of the weird curvature on his lower leg
>>10246111I'm in southern Illinois, so maybe they are still rolling out? I know it means nothing if you aren't in America. If I could, I would help you out. Maybe give the BST thread a shot? Like idk, a middle man or something?
>>10246003Nah, his trailer base sucks
Metalhawk and Twincast are listed on BBTS nowI guess we know some of the stuff that will be revealed next week
>>10246245Retool of Starscream or Pretool of Starscream?Take your bets!
>>10246245Why do they keep doing Metalhawk?
>>10246273He's the only Autobot pretender anyone cares about
>>10246273He's the leader(laughs)
>>10246245Oh boy, I bet Twincast comes with ONE cassette. We're still missing one of Soundwave's most well known cassettes, and nearly all of Blasters. At least one more four pack is needed to get us close.
>>10246283Blaster's cassettes are just tools. It took until 2010s for any of them to get focus, and it was unrelated to Blaster.
>>10246287Well yeah. But I liked Ramhorn in the cartoon.
>>10246283Twincast will come with Rewind, of course
>>10246298Rewind came with Shattered Glass Blaster. Twincast will come with Steeljaw just to fuck with us.
Because of the gang-molding meme, there won't be a Rosanna or Flip Sides this time around. Unless they use that as an excuse to make a more girl-looking mold for them.
>>10245822>NO YOU CANT ENJOY 3RD PARTY TOYS BECAUSE ITS ILLEGAL YOU HAVE TO BUY THE 30 DOLLAR DELUXES AND ENJOY THE TRANSLUCENT BREAKAGE AND YELLOWINGplease, just stop dick riding Hasbro so much that you become an armchair lawyer to defend the billion dollar corporation, you fucking faggot.
>>10245014I like to makeup bullshit too.
>>10246311I hope Hasbro lays that fag off, amirite bros?
>>10246298>Twincast will come with Rewind, of courseMother fuckers...
>>10246003Personally I've enjoyed a lot of the WFC trilogy, honestly. Warpath and Grapple stick out to me.
>>10246315Actually thats canon in a few places.
>>10246330Transformers isn't canon.
>>10246331This is Transformers. Everything is canon.
>>10246332Funpub doesn't have the loicense anymore
>>10246335Its still a canon continuity stream.Everything is canon. Some stuff is just shuffled off to some forgotten timeline/universe. Thats how the TF multiverse works.
>>10246326Likely to be Rosanna since the clear plastic for the chest should have a redish hue, and Rosanna is only humanoid cassette that could give them those colors. It should be flipsides since she's the most appropriate choice, but her clear plastic color would look weird on Twincast
>>10246307That was Shattered Glass RewindTotally different
>>10246210Yeah no shit, you're cobbling together a base from some combiner parts. Stop doing that. Good thing Motormaster is a fully functioning toy without any of that though, isn't it?.
>>10246258How about pretool of Thunderwing
>>10246381I feel like they would either use Jhiaxus for efficiency or make Thunderwing a Leader class.
>>10246003>What Legacy toy was better than Motormaster?Kneel.
>>10246384>or make Thunderwing a Leader class.I wish....
>>10246391Too much white.
>>10246391>nice jet modeClose but no. Good toy though.
Never liked Waspinator that much, but for some reason his color variants or his transmetal looks, actually look appealing, does anyone feels like this about other figure?
>>10246276What about Cloudburst? That Amazon wanted to jump his bones bad in the comics
>>10246279He's got too many toys. I want other Pretenders
>>10246368That trailer better do something!
>>10246415Canon. The accepted holy writings by the church.
>>10246398Nobody gives a fuck about Jhiaxus' alt mode, it was drawn inconsistently in every issue and generally looked like a flying bath tub. Meanwhile Motormaster butchered Menasor, the most important mode.
>>10246307>>10246346It actually is. The color scheme is all off. This isn't like Flamewar, Delta Magnus, or Slicer where at most Hasbro tweaked the color of the symbol.
So are those rumors of a Thunderclash out of a heavily retooled Motormaster looking at all likely?>>10246381This figure is the only time the two share a mold. Normally it's Thunderwing and Dark Shadow.
>>10246424Isn't Skullgrin at the same number of toys? Bludgeon might pass, depending on how strict you are with your definition.
>>10246548Yes, no more toys for him either. Where's Carnivac or Roadblock?
>>10246463Probably holiday prime Because of the back wheels, a small pic might have mislead
>>10246553Ultra Pretenders are difficult to do since their gimmick is a vehicle shell unless you want to just make that their normal vehicle mode. Carnivac I have no idea why he hasn't happened though. Seems like an easy recolor from BW Wolfang, Cybertron Snarl or Titans Return Wolfwire.
>>10246564Make them triple changers
>>10246564why not make them one vehicle that splits into two robots and combine into a bigger robot?
>>10246607I get what they are going for, but those colors are just awful. Definite peg/hole shape issue.
>>10246609They did that with Battleslash and Roadtrap and they hated them so hard they did Flywheels as a single unit the next line.
>>10246564>>10246606>>10246607>>10246609Inner robot is faithful adaptationOuter vehicle becomes a weaponizer.
>>10246564>>10246606Make the vehicle shell out of modulator parts that can be used as armor on botmode.
>>10246613no you fucking retard, one vehicle, two robots, combined robot
>>10246420I'm so glad I jumped on the botcon waruder set when it got down to $33.
>>10246632Know that I am Razorclaw and I am a bug chaser!
>>10246420I get happy seeing the waspinator family together
>>10246627Oh my badI was thinking vehicle pretendersUltra pretenders would just be like potp, but instead of a voyager inside a leader, it's a deluxe inside a voyager with armor parts to make the vehicle shell
>>10246391He's so ugly tho but that mold is really niceI hope he get's a darker recolor with better "alt Mode"
>>10246648He'll probably either be retooled into metalhawk, studio series wfc starscream, or thunderwing
>>10246660>studio series wfc starscreamReally? I have the Skywarp based on that, and it feels very different.
I got two Flamewars by mistake, thoughts on what to do?
>>10246789scalp it of course
desu it kind of sucks that Menasor's legs aren't reversible because the way Dead End and Break Down transform make them look pretty decent as feet.
>>10246789return it of course>t. received a 2nd siege omega supreme by mistake
>>10246856I wish they split into 2 pieces like the arms. The front of the car could attach to Menasor's foot and move with it.
>>10246426A trailer, base and combiner bits all in one? You ask too much of poor Hasbro, anon.>>10246458Hasbro clearly didn't give a fuck either with the giant cavity, head staring though the cockpit and untransformed arms fully hanging off the jet. Bot mode is fantastic yeah but when one mode might as well not exist, a transformer can only be considered so good.And I'm sorry you didn't get the Menasor you wanted but the one we did get turned out good and Motormaster is the best part of it. Combiner Wars seems more to you taste, so go enjoy that one buddy.
>>10246463>This figure is the only time the two share a mold. Normally it's Thunderwing and Dark Shadow.I was being facetious
>>10246004No, his wacky persona was 100% due to the fact that Joe Kelly wanted to write Spider-Man, to the point that he turned a wife beater like Deadpool into a wacky comedy hero rip-off of Spider-Man purely to make people who were sick of the never ending Spider-Clone saga to read Deadpool as an alternative and ultimately force Marvel to give him a Spider-book to write.
>Hasbro slaps a label on the boxHa ha thanks Hasbro ha ha>Paint App on Gold chest part of Leo>Sword parts are atrociously badGreat>Mess around with them>Feel nothing>Don't even wanna transform to alt modesMan..I reboxed it and just don't fucking careThis is so immensely underwhelming and bad
>>10246896At least you got them, hasbro keeps fucking up my order and nearly two month's later, nothing.
>>10246899Cancel and get refund then buy mine lol
can you don'tif i wanted to see shitty customs i would actually go on twitter*shudder*
>>10246930Sadly no goblin mode images.
>>10246931Whomst've'd does thow thought who am?
>>10246613Battletrap was Hasbro's Transformer of the Year for 2017
>>10246936shows how poor POTP was desuuu
>>10246789make them kiss
>>10246896I felt this same feel when I got Haslab Galactus. Posed him and stuck him on a shelf, then didn't touch him again until last week when I sold him.
>>10246902I'm almost tempted, but my trust in anonymous exhange died in the third grade and I haven't recovered. Fuck ballons.
>>10246613what the hell gaslighting is this? They told everyone in the 2017 Q&A it was a cost issue for Flywheels that wasn't present when designing Battletrap.
>>10246896>>10246971This is why I have no fear of missing out. I don't want to blow hundreds of dollars on a figure that is just going to make me feel down I bought it.
>>10247078Flywheels is better off. The individual robot modes for Battletrap's halves caused unnecessary problems.
>>10247079I did end up doubling my money but yeah, it's not great when you wait so long for something only to feel nothing when it arrives.
>bumped at 305Did the bump limit get increased here or something? That's a welcome change.
>>10247171305 posts don't always mean 300 bump-related posts
So if everyone hates the Autobot human shells, how you you fix them? Turn them into superhero looking guys like Kamen Rider, Ultraman, or Guyver?
>>10247188Make them robotic with metal faces like Bay bots
>>10247188It's mostly just those first few ones, with the heavily protruding chestsbumblebee, grimlock, and jazz were fine.Honestly, pretenders are a great concept, they just didn't go all the way.the toys should have shells with high posability, with the backs open for the robot to slide into like star saber or powermaster prime.
>>10247171Bump limit has been at 310 for years newfag
>>10247208That seems difficult for late 80s. Like GI Joes had proper articulation, but they didn't have to fit another guy in them.
>>10247220The original concept was soft plastic shells so the joints would all be on the robot.You see the remnants of it with the softer plastic armor pieces
>>10247280That would have been fucking awful
pretenders were the dumbest fucking gimmick to come out of the "throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks" era of toys I have no idea why anyone has nostalgia for that garbage
>>10247341Because the the shells are visually striking among old Transformers toys. Execution as a toy might have been lacking, but not the look.
>>10247341There's something pleasing about the "stuff toy in other toy" concept.
>>10247319Pretty sure that's why they dropped it
>>10247341Partly because they were major players in the marvel comics and the Japanese shows
>>10247341I had Pretender Bumblebee as a kid, thought it was some Transformers/MOTU crossover
>>10247390Matryoshka kind of thing?
>>10246971>>10247079Yea basicallyIO feel nothing and it wasn't worth the waitI barely touched my Haslab Sentinel too and now HLJ fucked a friend over so I'm not even getting my Yamaguchi X-Men
>>10247188I know I'm in minority here, but POTP did them right, they just needed more articulation, keep them as targetmaster and armors for eithe headmaster or powermasters, just add hip, knee and elbow swivels.
>>10247651yeah POTP pretenders were the ideal modernisation of the original toys and they scale nicely with prime wars/pre-WFCT frensas for a modernisation of the concept, a biomechanical hybrid monster, legacy's core figgers are really very good. skullgrin not so much and fingers crossed for bludgeon but honestly i might just stick to the coreshaving them spread across different scales is kinda weird
Could you guys help me identify this Cheetor toy? I had it as a kid and this is the only photo I found of it... Please?
>>10247818That definitely looks like the original Cheetor. They just did a rerelease of him recently so you may be able to find one on the cheap
>>10245623Blackarachnia has coloured mockups, its dropping first I believe
>>10245926who is that sensual predacon in the middle? I thought I knew all the Beastwars toys
>>10246632>>10246420I like mine
>>10247818https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1099742240&ref=list&keyword=Beast%20wars%20cheetor&lang=enin stock, 1 leftThere has been a re-release but ive been finding sealed OGs for not much more. https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1115094395&ref=list&keyword=Beast%20wars%20cheetor&lang=enMasterpiece is also quite good
>>10247950bury fucken naisu anonbut why no buzzsaw?
>>10247818>>10247933>>10247956Thats no transformer, thats a minifigure of Disneys Tarzan Cheetah.
>>10247974good fucking eye
>>10247972Have one in box, still need to cop loose. I need Injector and a few other bugs to complete the collection>>10247974I kneel
>>10247974absolutely legendary toy autisma sneel
>>10247995>toy autismAkshually, visual design autism, I loved the sleek design of that cat on the movie, this is the first time I'm seeing that toy.
>>10247974Nicely done, dude.
>>10247974>I'd recognize that cheetah anywhere
>>10246391I still hate the massive empty shell of a cockpit. Love the Robot mode though. Genuinely one of the best in years. I really feel like this was something Hasbro basically went "Let's see what happens if we put ALL the money into the Bot mode and just sorta half-ass the Alt-Mode" and honestly, I kinda don't mind?
>>10246607Every day I pray for a Triple Changer Retro Collection that gives me the chance to buy that Sandstorm for less than triple figures in my country.
>>10246894I mean, Spider-Clone saga was a fucking debacle from beginning to end. One of the writers in Marvel at the time wrote a massive 30+ part behind the scenes thing and put it out online about what was going on in the writers and editors room at the time. It sounds similar though to when Annihilation basically brought Cosmic Marvel back, because it ran at the same time as Civil War, which was excruciating character assassination and garbage by comparison.
>>10246245Is this the one we get the Devcon mold in?
>>10249689It's so sad that it never got used for anything else. Springer's mold got, what, 6 paint jobs across US and JP, and Sandstorm only got one.Criminally underused mold.
>>10246872>and Motormaster is the best part of it.That's axiomatically going to be true when he makes up the entirety of the combined mode by himself, why even bother writing that
New thread, with apologies for lateness:>>10251276>>10251276>>10251276
>>10249972I mean, it was already a retool. I'm pretty sure that Hot Rodimus was another one as well.
>>10251278Hey, you actually made it at the correct time, on page 9, this time.
>>10251691Would have made it earlier but was on holiday somewhere with very poor wifi.
>>10243664>The original pisses on this thing so hardNah, I'd say it's a lateral move at best:The original has far better details (especially the vastly less horrifying lion face) and fun gimmicks, but the robot proportions are jank and the lion is deformed as fuck.The new one has a retarded-looking lion face and the mane 'gimmick' wasn't even worth including, but the transformation is cool and both the lion and robot proportions are vastly superior.
>>10251692No need for excuses for doing the right thing.
>>10251757Nah, next time I will be sure to make the next thread on the dot at bump limit. Or at least earlier than this.
