MMC's new Infinity Finity line sounds interesting. No pics yet but RVDA one of MMC's designers on TFW said this about it
>Basically a MP line where we can go, 'what if?'. What if the next Tarn is a female Decepticon, what if this character was in G1, what if this famous car was a Transformer. It's something that will give us more freedom to be creative while still giving people what they want.

I just want Hasui era MP-ized versions of various characters(tone down the chins on Animated designs and give them more details, give Prime characters a chin). Something like RTS. I want a Lugnut or Bulkhead that I can stick with G1 MPs.

Considering the Takara Legends toys of stuff like that were some of the most creative toys of the last 5 years this does sound fun as hell. I'm much more excited to see new weird shit instead of the same goddamn S1 and 86 crews over and over again.

I don't own it but I always loved the look of this figure. If he was deluxe/voyager sized I would be all over this guy.

I own three different versions of this mold (Drift, Deadlock and Batman) and adore them. Only issue I've had is that some of the extra hinges and swivels on the batman one are a little lose.
>>
>>8798333
I got the Ratbat version and while the huge shoulder pylons are kind of a bummer to actually pose, transforming him back and forth is almost as satisfying as the legs folding over the entire rest of the figure on their Turmoil.

>>8798432
He's definitely between Voyager and Leader, at least for current year when both of those size classes have gotten a bit smaller.

I could never decide if I wanted to get Wing to go along with Deadlock (can't remember these unofficial names). I like the mold, but there's just something I also don't like about it that hinders me from buying a retool.

Also, am I going crazy or didn't MMC plan on making a Blurr with this mold? Or am I just thinking of a fanmade photoshop?
>>
>>8798552
It's not that bad now that the size classes have more or less been abolished. Budget is spread across waves in their entirety so you get larger and smaller than normal figures for the sake of having better scale, giving paint apps to those that need it and less to those that don't. It's honestly better now than it's been since probably like 2010 classics.

Speaking of MMC, if they still don't plan on reissuing Carnifex before or after their Fort Max/Supermax is out, I will cry.
>>8798886
Aside from playing with the center of balance, I don't think it's possible to do so (in robot mode anyway, for dragon mode I just don't bother transforming the hind legs completely so he can actually stand.)
At best, you can have at least one wing not spread out, so the tips can touch the table. They aren't pointing so it's not like you'll have to worry about damaging the tips or anything.

The Cyro repaint is super beautiful, I struggled with deciding which colours I wanted to go with. Decided to just go with red since he has the alt face.

The only armada Prime prototype I remember is this Takara one.

That'd be a kek. But yeah I'd love to see more TFs modelled after real-world cars. I'd actually love some 50s-styled cars repped. Obviously the classic "land yauchts" like Cadillacs and the like would rock, but also some of the smaller non-American models, like the Toyota Crown. Or heck, a classic Mini. How have we never gotten a Mini TF outside of TW Goldbug (who was based on the modern one)?

>>8799149

Genuinely excited for this, I always disliked how the Maketoys one looked.
Also don't care for G1 accuracy, I just want something sexy and better than MP-11.
>>
>>8800005
I for one don't overall mind the look that Meteor has, other than the shade of grey for his face kind of getting lost in his head. But since I only own the G2 variant "Screamer," it doesn't actually have that particular issue.

It does however, have all the other kind of issues that already existed with the mold -- an ab crunch that then sacrifices any form of locking in at his waist, various wing panels that like to pop off if you try to get them looking a certain way, the backs of his legs detaching in general; those kind of things.
>>
>>8799589
>>8799586
>>8799584
>>8799582
Looking good actually. Maybe a little over-greebled but still looks more in line with older MPs which is good since I'm not big on the flat sunbow aesthetics. The face needs some serious work though and I really hope they clean up that nosecone to look a bit more flush.
>>
>>8800227
I remember disliking the head (colour and size) and how they did the wings the most. I was planning on hoping somebody makes a good KO of Starscream 3.0 like Megs, since all this shit is overpriced nowadays, but I might not have to.
>>8800383
I think the face is acceptable, but it definitely can be improved on. It really needs alt faces though to compete with other alternatives though.
>>
>>8798179
Could be great, or not so great. So many 3rd party toys are based on pre-existing designs. I'd like them to take more risks with original ideas, but it's going to come down to whether or not the designs are interesting.

Things like the T-Beast line are really cool, but I think it's hard to not make the concept appealing.
I'd like to see characters from very stylized properties (TFA, TFP, RID, etc) in a more Classics/IDW/whatever format. Kind of like RTS Lugnut.

It's absolutely not. An Animated Megatron would sell really well I think.

TFA seems like a really niche thing, but I'd like to expect a Megatron at one point of my life.
A part of me thinks it'd be a safer option to do something like Perfect Effect did and make them stylized. A lot of people enjoyed TFA but don't like the jarring styles and chins.

Animated designs need to be "de-animated" with real world details and gundam style details, dial the chins back, (or give us optional heads with and without chin power for all but sentinel prime)

This is an interesting idea. Would be interesting to see some newer characters in a G1 or other style, or alternative version of these characters.

I mean, Yeagertron was never meant to be an IDW Lockdown, he was just a repurposing of a mold designed to be Death's Head into a conceptually similar guy because MMC weren't sure they wanted to risk a mass retail Death's Head.

>>8800836
>>8800861
This. The Huffer/Pipes set didn't do great, but then they were background characters, if that, being sold solely on the hopes that people would want a Mario and Luigi homage. A major onscreen character would probably do better, but on the other hand, the 3P market is driven by Chinese sales mostly, and who knows how much the Chinese like Animated. It doesn't have that nostalgia drive that G1 does, or the popular movie hype of the Bayverse.
>>
>>8801087
I feel like that would ruin the charm of Animated. The flowing lines and limited but effective detail of Animated's art style is part of what makes it so unique and appealing for its fans.
>>
>>8802526
This. Sunbow designs need greebling up because they look terrible if done literally. Animated had a much more appealing style (and better animation) so it doesn't need stylizing.
>>
>>8802526
There's definitely a charm on its own, but TFA itself is a niche market unlike G1 and Bay. We've seen niche products like Galaxy Meteor burn (and I'm part of the problem because I didn't like the blue and the ugly faces to buy it ;_;) so who knows.
Making it more stylised and fitting to something like IDW would give it more mass appeal, and the fact that it's Megatron.

I havent bought transformers for years but I really want a nice combiner and someone told me to go for third parties. Can you guys recommend me a good combiner I can get?
>>
>>8804308
Well what combiner are you aiming for?
>>
>>8804309
Anything around a $100 or so, something I can combine and decombine over and over again as stress relief.
>>
>>8804027
>>8804029
Neat, if I had interest in a repaint I wouldn't have bought Grimlock in the first place so I'll buy this using the funds I got from selling Wheelie
>>
>>8804312
So something cheap and kinky.
>>
>>8804312
Yeah most of the good combiners will run you at least twice that. If you really want to keep it around 100$ though consider getting the pocket toys KO of Iron Factory's Bruticus or one of the mechfanstoys ko of DX9 hulkie.

You could also aim for the daban or jinbao devestator, both run on the cheaper end and are fucking massive

Anyone else think his legs are too thin?
>>
>>8804312
not quite that cheap, but the KO Jinbao devastator is a good one.
Its big, its good value for its price, decent quality, and quite fun to transform and combine.
i think the whole thing is about 150 bucks and the size of a baby.
>>
>>8804386
>>8804372
Ive been looking at the Jinbao devastator, looks great. Are the other Jinbao transformers any good?
>>
>>8804389
they make real good OSKOs
I think i have their MP megatron, and it holds up great, looks real good on a shelf, and only has a chonky gun mode, otherwise its pretty perfect.
>>
>>8804372
>>8804386
Is there a good breakdown of the differences between the KO and the original? I expect some simplification of the engineering to lower costs, but I want to be sure of what I'm losing out on since I like my combiners to be posable individually as well.
>>
>>8804415
between the Jinbao and the original?
AFAIK, the Jinbao guy is just bigger, same poseability.
The individual guys look good separately, everyone can hold quite dynamic poses.

The combined mode is huge, so its not as stable as the smaller original (i would assume) but it still holds reserved poses well, and if you can have it brace itself against something, you can get a bit more extreme.

Its actually the opposite, they added more ratchet joints and some other engineering here and there. That said the whole combiner was wibbley due to the size.
The daban is a one to one ko though if that helps

In hindsight I'm not 100% certain almost destroying my precious dinosaur toy with a hair dryer just to close a 2mm-ish panel gap was completely worth it but luckily it only took like a half an hour of trying to trim plastic off of the edges of the warped slot until I managed to get the leg to fit in again and screw in pretty much good as new. I guess it worked out in the end, barely.

well fuck. In that case, he should invest in a more precise heat gun so he doesn't risk applying too much heat or melting the wrong parts. That thing ain't cheap, and I'm sure heat guns are cheaper than replacing an out of print MM figure. If it has Diecast, doubly so since you really want to avoid heating metal on plastics.
>>
>>8804521
I can confirm JB Gravity Builder is stable and quite fun. Their giant Feral Rex KO is neither. But then again, I got the cromed version of Havoc and I'm enjoying very much...
>>
>>8804623
heat gun is definitely a worse idea than a hairdryer.
its a lot more heat.

Fantastic figure. Lots of die cast. Very smooth and quick transformation. The way the head goes into the chest is cool too.

I would have gotten it if it had a waist swivel, thigh swivels, and better feet. Looks great but I just require a little more articulation out of things that I actually buy.

A lot of heat guns can be adjusted to run cooler than hair dryers, and include precision nozzles so you can concentrate the heat more efficiently. I use a heat gun kind of like this to fix stress marks on old toys boiling water won't and it usually takes a few second of circular blowing to solve, and I've only ruined a few dollar store figures I was practicing on by touching the nozzle, which will melt the plastic irreparably.

It really works remarkably and well and gives you a bit more control than a hair dryer is designed to. Then again I also use it for tons of other DIY stuff, so if you only need it once, you might a well risk the hair dryer.

I have the regular red version, and a "snake bone stand" off of eBay will do the job of keeping them on their feet. Don't expect it to keep them supported off the ground in a stable manner, though. They're just too damn heavy for that. The stands are like $15-$20 bucks.

How mishandled the MP line is frustrating. They absolutely can't criticize the 3P industry for anything when they've sat on their asses for the longest time, and their idiotic notion that Deceptions are harder to sell (unless they're a Seeker because ez repaints)
