What's the matter, are you too poor to buy a leader class figure? Will your mom not give you $50?

I would have preferred a voyager-priced Shockwave without the extra pieces, but the figure is still pure sex and I made a ridiculous-looking gun robot contraption out of the extras, so hey.
>>
>>8795904
Anon, please. For me?
>>
>>8795897
Not him, but that Shockwave is pretty short without his armor bits, and I'd even argue that the armored mode for his robot mode looks kinda tacked on. At least the armored bits make his vehicle mode look pretty cool.
>>
>>8795887
From what I've heard, toys spending years in packing can be affected by the gasses they release (since they can't escape) and some issues related to the cardboard used. This whole thing is even worse if it's stuck inside a plastic clamshell which transformers still use in some figures.
>>
>>8795829
I just opened my ER Sunstreaker the other day and not only is he the floppiest figure I've ever held (like a ragdoll, he gets treated with Pledge tonight) but he was full of very fine fibers. Really weird. He's otherwise fine, if you ignore the mismatched yellows.
>>
>>8795928
Oof. Any idea what the results are? Brittleness?
>>
>>8795897
Every inch of this guy just reeks cheapness to me and after getting the ER seekers in hand, it's even more poignant to me. I've been waiting since siege released to see if he'd drop to $30 and he just never did. I don't care the slightest bit about the option parts either. Hoping someday we just get a proper one without all the gimmicks.
>>
>>8795934
I remember reading up some issues in the RD general but it's been a while, I think it was discoloration, and weaker plastic, I think the paint had some issues as well.

I had the exact same issue that you did.
Take the piece that connects to his vehicle mode front, stick the two two-barreled flaps together, then put the feet enhancements, combined, onto the opposite side of it. The shoulder paldrons can go on on the sides.
A lot of the pics of it are just from the front, so that's why I had the issues with it.

>>8796174
He is. For the jet mode, insert the HM before tabbing the legs together, do not open the cockpit to do it. If this is too much trouble, shave off the tabs on the cockpit until it closes without issue.

I just found out that ss86 grimlock has an extra joint in his arm which allows the Dino legs to bend the right way
>>
>>8796182
I'm doing that most of the times I've been transforming it but I wanted to [no spoilers]do stop motion with it[/on /toy/] and I'd rather it work more naturally.
I never had any issue with Apeface save for the weird plastic and battle damage. The engineering on the other hand was on point imo.

>>8795939
This is a proper Shockwave. Just because he has stupid optional pieces which don't interfere with his robot mode doesn't mean this isn't "The" Generations Shockwave for the Generations collector. Leader price is a tough pill to swallow but Hasbro only has so many Voyager slots that they can fill and putting characters that should be Voyager in a Leader box along with some extra stuff that's 100% ignorable is a good trick to get those characters out there. It's way better than what they did with the CW Leaders where they forced regular characters like Soundwave into a Leader sized figure unnecessarily.

The only way Shockwave could be better is a longer gun handle and we know that shit will never happen, so they have no reason to revisit him other than to please some anti-detail autists.

This one's completely false. I've been doing this since getting him and there's no resistance, let alone paint transfer. Also if you have a dremel you can disassemble the crotch/hips and carve off about 1cm of plastic around the upper parts and stop all paint scrape.

Let's be real here. ALL of CW was awful. There was fun to be had with the gimmick but the molds were all way too simplistic and the plastic far too cheap and shitty for the price. Deluxe figures used to be $10, then $12 after the oil price hike for Generations. Then CW started charging $15-18 after gutting parts counts and engineering complexity and skimping on painted details and plastic quality. Then thanks to the crap plastic, QC went down the fucking shitter so not only did you have overpriced toys, but they were crap too with shit not holding together, being assembled wrong, or being absurdly loose. And sure, LG fixed the QC and paint problems but not the price point, since LG doubled it so they still just weren't worth it.

Dumbest part is that you can't even blame the gimmick for the over simplification since it really doesn't take much to include a universal combiner peg and the ability for the hips to function as elbows. Things have gotten leaps and bounds better since with the WfC line but some of the old habits remain to keep them from being as great as they could be.

Specifically pulling the "backpack" away from the chest to reveal the ape head. It's really hard to pull off. I feel like I have to have a fucking kungfu grip on the figure, feels like i'm gonna snap the arms squeezing so hard. then when you finally loosen the backpack it just doesn't feel good at all. it feels like i forced it open and if i keep doing this it's gonna break.

hmmm I don't know. maybe you guys got an unlucky tight pin for the back hinge? the plastic on the front half of the torso has to flex to let it go, (which I hate) but past transformation #1, I've never felt like it would do any damage.

MP 44 is 2.5 times the cost and has a lot of issues compared to MP 10, the worse MP 10 has is long arms, MP 44 is a unnecessary mess of paint and engineering all in the name to make it look like more of a cartoon model.

Dreamed of having a Prime with a trailer since I got Classics 2-pack Prime, which I'll defend to this day as a good toy for his time, 1,000% bias. Even put aside a medicine box that my mom promised would make into a trailer for me. Hoping to find Earthrise or Kingdom Prime on clearance, which I still swear is something that will happen, or at least would have happened without the ongoing hate plague. Should I be unlucky enough not to see such a thing, I'm wondering: would people buy a trailer if it was sold separately? Maybe include Roller and market it as a "it's totally fine as a separate playset, having Prime just increases its playability". I know there's some that don't really care if he has one, but man he'd be far cooler with one. Really adds to his heft/weight, and if I'm remembering uni physics correctly, it hurts way more if he rams into you while carrying it. I want a trailer aaaaaAAAA

Pic unrelated, it's a lucky bot. Is he lucky enough to get a figure? Only time will tell.

So I messed about a bit more with Liokaiser. The combined form is definitely his strong suit. The alt modes range from cool (Killbison and Drillhorn) to "eh" (Kaihawk and Hellbat) to "there was an attempt" (Leozack, and yes I know he's meant to be Deathsaurus but I like the idea of him being a bestial Leozack better).

I like him a lot. True, I've never owned a Shockwave toy up until him, but I actually enjoy the armor bits - he's probably the only character I'd accept the 'hoverboard becomes armor' gimmick on, because he's a mad scientist and it doesn't seem out-of-character for him to invent something like that. At least he doesn't have another 'I forgot to give him an actual alt-mode' Spider Tank mode like I've seen in previous iterations of him.
>>8796163
>>8796153
You've got that upside-down, though. The little extra guns that fold out for his combined Spaceship mode connect and go on the bottom, while the cannons that go on his feet clip onto the top. It forms a 'box', and the little pegs/fins you see at the front near the cannon-toes in your pic are actually 'landing gear' that go under it and help it balance with the fins on the arm pieces. Here's how it should look from the bottom and behind.

A-anon I'm not buying four copies of the same toy. Three, maybe. But four?
I know I saw someone say they picked him up to be Sunstreaker, but he's (Tigertrack) afaik a toy-only rando, why the interest? Just looked nice and cute?
I'm glad he rolls great, it's nice when cars do that instead of vaguely skidding, but what do you mean by clean lines?

Several things:

-Everything's getting more expensive (including the rumored price hike for transformers)
-I've been taking contract Engineering jobs which pay less than the full time position I held for years
-I don't want to fall into the trap of constantly buying figures to replace older one's, I'm happy with the one's I've got at the moment so it seems like a good moment to stop

After that I may get one or two figures if I really want them, like an Armada Cyclonus if it's good, but I'm done.

This is my issue right now, its so tiring. Trying to get rid of older figures to get new versions, the game is just exhausting. This goes for all sorts of franchises. How many Power rangers, how many Marvel figures, how many aliens, etc will I rebuy over and over?

>>8797963
Here's an idea, stop buying from the western market entirely.

I'm hoping the whole "half of the line being fucking exclusives" trend was a result of 2020 shenanigans and fuckin dies with Earthrise but I definitely get this shit being tiring, I'm really glad I had no real interest in any of them but making two-thirds of the fucking seekers a Target exclusive is goddamn inexcusable, it's ok for literal whos like Spinout and Cordon but fuck hasbro for making core characters like that into limited store exclusives. Also fuck siege skywarp

Japan is awful with this as well though, look at how many 2.0s of various figures their are.

I miss shirtpants-style combiners, they were kinda fun even if they were mostly not very good. Or just nonstandard combiners in general, but we don't have many of those outside of G1 so we're probably not gonna get many of those any time soon
>>
>>8798027
Fuck I meant there aren't many nonstandard combining teams in G1, and by nonstandard I mean stuff that isnt just one guy for each limb and one for the torso., hoping once WFC trilogy is over we can start getting some later guys, an updated version of Rail Racer would be pretty cool because the original is pretty rough

I've got a wishlist though, so outside of a half-decent Whirl, Blaster or some new Constructicons with good robot modes, and maybe some late G1 Japanese guys like Deathsaurus, Star Saber, Raiden etc, Transmetals or some comic-only villains like Pharma or Tarn... I'm basically done buying entire waves. None of these characters are gonna fill an entire toyline, so I'll pick them up when I see them, and that's it.

I've got more core Autobots, my core Decepticons, my core Beast Wars guys, so anything that comes out now is basically a bonus.
I don't need *another* Optimus, *another* Starscream, *another* Grimlock....

It's not a type of person thing, it's a "namefagging, tripfagging, and avatarfagging are all objectively attentionwhoring no matter who does it" thing. On a website and community where anonymity is the default and norm, choosing to assume an explicit identity is going out of you way to gain attention. Any purpose you have to use an identity is going to be some form of asking for more attention than any regular anon. You're saying "I am, by some measure, more important than any anon here".
>it’s just easier to have a name than have people ask me if I’m the same Anon that posted something else earlier in the thread or perhaps even the one before that one
Then you can use it just when that situation is relevant, such as talking about a topic you were previously involved in or posting your own pictures. Using it all the time, even when your post has nothing to do with your previous activities in this general, is just seeking more attention than normal for the sake of it.

10 dollars deluxe class for decades. In the past 7 years its gone to double that with perhaps 1/4 to 1/3 less toy. So yeah there are some salty toy collectors.
>>
>>8798790
It's a bit worse. We've got an increase of 8 dollars for deluxe figures in less than five years if the price hike happens next year. Voyagers is 15 in that same amount of time. Legends/Core has stayed 10, but we did lose a mini figure accessory early on, and now it's going up by 2

Shit, I just feel a big slowdown in collecting. Most of my wants I got between CW and WFC. 86 line will probably have a few Ill pick up.

I don't count legends class among them because wherever was designing those still gave a shit. Deluxe and up were trash for the entire Prime trilogy. Legends class was still good.

I already had a hunch that Hasbro would soon cut the retail line to the bare minimum and try selling most of their figures through exclusives online.

The new MSRP and exclusive have made it difficult for me to continue buying them regularly.

Yeah. The TCG had Needlenose using the Tetrajet mold at one point, and a Junkion merc in the Hound mold. Kind of surprised they haven't done them yet.

The new head is great. The best part of this guy. The red eyes are just evil looking. Wish that spot of grey on the cockpit stalk was black.

Never noticed how thin the plastic on the fists is. I can see wear marks.
One of the ratchets in his hips is misaligned so it rests at angle instead of straight down and I'm not sure how to fix that.

By virtue of being a plane Thunderclash is a bit more interesting than swindle but he's still pretty standard as far as minicons go.
>>
>>8798930
Holy shit that’s based, maybe I’ll just use Rung then, gonna be a bitch to customize the head at such a small scale though. Unless I learn CAD as I previously talked about and just 3D print my own head for him, but that could take months of learning, whereas with epoxy I can kinda just sculpt it.
