Why do these people need to be represented everywhere? I'm gay myself, and god it makes me cringe how shoehorned this trope in every movie I seem to watch.

Anyway, I was wondering what is the best Optimus Prime figure on a budget? Thanks.

>>8799057
I mean Furman really screwed the pooch with the whole "no girl robots" thing, so honestly they were written into a corner when it came to Arcee.
Her origin was done, and honestly retconning it would've been worse. I'd rather they try to figure out how to move forward with a shitty backstory than sweep it under the rug.
>>
>>8799164
Way I see it, any future fiction should refrain from explaining fembots. Cybertronians are sexless robotic creatures. To our human eyes, some appear male and some female. End of.

this makes the most sense to me.

its not that fembots tend to turn into motorcycles and menbots turn into trucks, its that chunky bots become chunky vehicles and slender bots make slimmer ones
>>
>>8799196
I'd be all up for some fembots being chunkier while still retaining female-coded proportions (wider hips, narrower shoulders, smooth curves and swooping lines, etc). You could have Arcee be a lithe bikeformer while Elita is a jetformer big enough to go ara ara on Optimus.

I'm glad you do. Not trying to slam anyone who likes him, I just feel he's a bit too thin for my liking and his hands are weirdly disproportionate. And that head sculpt. Again, nothing new to Kup figures.

>>
>>8799341
The hood looks quite a bit different from the real deal, having more simplified cartoon designs than the real deal. Often depends on the company and all, but sometimes one small change is all it takes, like the various Sideswipes who look like some Lamborghini, but they changed the hood or other detail just enough. Or Classic Starscream being an F-15, except for the nosecone being based on an F-14 so they could avoid paying Boeing a licensing fee. Conversely, Volkswagen won't allow even a chibification of the Beetle without getting paid, which is why until recent years we've not seen Bumblebee in anything approaching that mode outside of the reissue keychain from the early 00s.

I feel the same way. This is what I’d imagine a “young” Kup would look like. He’s got not “weight” or age to him. On the upside, he’s got ACTUAL wheels and not those clip on discs.

Well, which one is it? I would think a lot of people buying the reissues didn't get them the first time. If reissues like this are successful, it would be proof that characters don't need repeated remakes.

The nice thing about them being on sliders is you can keep the default knee position and only slide them up when you want a deeper knee bend

People generally don't want to be represented everywhere, but the powers that be hope that they can convince people they need to be - at that point you tie people's self worth to consumerism.

I mostly just buy the Studio Series nowadays. I'm probably going to pick up the Beast Wars cast for Kingdom and maybe one or two others from that line - but after that chances are I'll just be waiting for studio series.

Oldest is some 1986 movie, Beast Wars and Beast Machines... though generally everything Dark Of The Moon and prior - to varying extents, has not survived. A lot of them had rubber or other aspects that biodegraded over time, some of them had the plastic peel and others kinda disintegrated partially. That said even some of my new figures just kinda break on their own if left for display - think it's the plastic they are using.

So I'm generally just sticking to figures for nostalgia, along with a present day movie style 'seeker' collection of Starscream, Thundercracker, Nitro Zeus and KSI Boss. Still waiting for a Skywarp that would fit the theme somewhat.

Yes but Rampage was also considerably less cool and Flamewar was a much better use of that mould regardless.

I've gone back and forth like 30 times now and haven't seen any issues anywhere. You can also get the crotch apart with minimal/zero stress by popping the legs from the back and then instead of trying to yard the whole thighs up, you apply pressure to get the panels attached to the hips instead of the legs out first.

They literally make toys out of characters that never appeared in a cartoon, or appeared in one episode or two episodes of G1 like runamuck that nobody cares about. Or single scene figures like the quintesson set for exclusive faggotry. Or you know, the 2006 transmutate which ok was spread about as parts in different toys but still.

Youre just defending this for no reason, it just flat out looks bad. Sorry you need to defend everything. And like I said, its better than nothing, which is what your argument is, so thanks for agreeing with me

Just post your toys anon. If you think this character deserved an entirely new mould then you must really like them. There's no way this could be a one off toy for fun to fill a gap in people's collections for $25. It has to be a slavishly accurate non-transforming figure right?
>>
>>8800070
Keep your MP Primal. Is less than 100$ gap between the two worth it?

I dont have any toys from 2006 because I was 13 and buying video games. What the fuck does that have to do with the toy at hand, other than you trying to gotcha with this lame shit. It looks bad, they could do better, and you have eyes, and you have no serious way of disagreeing with this other than "idc", which is fine, but stop being so annoying
>>
>>8800070
I always look at the worst part about a toy even if I like them, so here goes:

-Rattrap's good, but very small and the rat mode had basically no articulation. He's more of a complimentary piece to the deluxe, but not an upgrade (though, the new one has better proportions and has double jointed knees)
-Primal looks good, but has a few problems. Some parts are extremely tight while others are too lose, the arms are specially worrisome but I have no clue how to fix this since the arms use tons of pins. The white tights will chip if you aren't careful posing it, and doing the quad gorilla pose will also damage the paint with the back cover. Finally, opening the torso is horrifying since it's super tight, I ended ended up cutting the taps so I wouldn't damage the faces or robot chest when I had to transform it.
>>
>>8799753
So the use of cheap hard plastic on everything and the super tight joints aren't enough to get you to stop?
>>
>>8800037
>>
>>8800070
Depends on if you want the aesthetic to clash. MP BW stuff is slavishly screen accurate with the printed textures while the Kingdom shit is what a normal TF would reasonably look like. If you have T30 Rhinox, the Kingdom toys go considerably better with him than the MPs, and we've confirmed the entire S1 Maximal cast and most likely everyone save Terrorsaur on the Pred side for Kingdom. I'd say it's apples and oranges honestly.

>>8800077
Blackarachnia is a core character to the show from around episode 5 onwards until Beast Machines. Transmutate shows up for a single episode and then dies. Can you see why one gets a 1:1 show model accurate effective demake of the MP and one gets a new head on an existing toy?

Yeah and I get it, but at the same time they also just made a fine non-transforming toy for Transmutate in 2006 and they could do it again, it is after all a non-transforming character

Or they could've made a weaponizer transmutate with its own mold, which I think would be fine, its certainly not a less popular character than some of the other weaponizers and modulators that theyve remade as general retail mass market line toys in WFC

>is this if transmutate turned out normal
No, pic related is the timeline where she turned out 'normal' (she still had her autism, just wasn't physically deformed and didn't have the mental state of an infant). Looks like that's just deformed Transmutate from the cartoon, except she was somehow able to adopt a Beast Mode.
>>
>>8800098
>>
>>8800093
Because nobody actually cares about this character and wants a new mould. If someone cares this much they can go and hunt down the old toy. For everyone else this is a pulse exclusive for under $30 that they can fill a gap that doesn't really need filling with. You are actually fucking autistic as shit, dude. The other weaponizers are toys that are made to go with the titan class toys like Cog with Fortmax and Brunt for Trypticon, and the new weaponizers for Kingdom are new characters entirely just for fun.

The original toy was gold, albeit a very desaturated shade. It's a pretty decent interpretation of how they looked in the show. The new gold Hasbro is using is just too much, it's too deep brown. Almost a bronze, really.

>>8800026
The toy looks fun. The original character couldn't transform - this one can not only transform, but combine with other characters for increased usefulness. While I wish she had the 'normal' face under the deformed face mask, she still seems like a decent and more playable adaptation of the character; the fact that they remembered her at all was a surprise, really.
>>
>>8800124
Considering that things like Generations Seaspray is still doing fine like 10+ years out now, I really don't think it's an assumption we can make now. Like even with the weird soft ABS they use, while my Beast Hunters Shockwave had his treads snap a year out, my T30 Rhinox's assplate is still fully intact despite them both being about the same age.

Yeah, I'm leaving mine in Harambe mode because it feels like I have a finite number of transformations before that back piece inevitably snaps off.

I think anon's point is that, since Transmutate was a one-off show-only character that never had an original toy, what point is there to making a figure of it if its nothing like the show? For anyone who cares about the character, the figure is going to be a disappointment, and for anyone who doesn't care for the character, the fact it's Transmutate won't matter to them, and thus it's just a weird Paleotrex retool. And if you're going to have a toy whose only noteworthy from the perspective of being a weird Paleotrex retool, why not either do something original or at least more fitting for a skeletal T-rex? The fact it's Transmutate it completely pointless and would have been better off being something else.
>>
>>8800129
Nah, it broke too quickly, GPS takes a while. You'll know if a toy has it if it starts getting clean breaks after 8 or so years. If CW G2 Slingshot has it, it will explode since the spring for the combiner joint will break it before the GPS fully does.

I burned out on the MP line and sold my G1 stuff, and Primal is the only BW MP I have and I'm currently debating if I want to bother with anymore, but I really like Primal.

>If you have T30 Rhinox, the Kingdom toys go considerably better with him than the MPs
Got the LG-EX one, and that's cool to hear, but holding onto my Rhinox just incase the Kingdom one isn't as good.
>>
>>8800149
Also something you should keep in mind, T30 Rattrap doesn't scale with Kingdom toys at all, he's about the same height as Cheetor. Rhinox meanwhile is too small for MP imo and scales nearly perfectly with the Kingdom stuff. I really do think it's incomparable and that an MP display is gonna be completely separate from a Kingdom display at this point.
>>
>>8800141
>For anyone who cares about the character, the figure is going to be a disappointment
Your assumption is wrong because I'm pleasantly surprised by the figure and might get it later in the year.
>>
>>8800147
>There are a ton of people in this thread who think it's cool and are going to buy it though?
But not specifically because it's Transmutate. No one here is going "oh my god a fucking TRANSMUTATE figure?! I must have it!" They're going "oh man, a freaky paleotrex thing, that's kinda cool". The fact it's Transmutate is completely incidental.
>>
>>8800152
>Also something you should keep in mind, T30 Rattrap doesn't scale with Kingdom toys at all
Oh yeah I know that, if I were to get rid of Primal I would probably do the same with Rattrap and go all in on Kingdom.
Honestly I'm feeling I might anyways, MPs just doesn't deliever the fun to cash raitio anymore and the horror stories of breakage makes it really untempting to collect them.
Sure hear the Kingdom ones have issues like that, but they're also way cheaper.
>>
>>8800156
But that's what several of us are doing? I don't care about her nearly enough to hunt down the Telemocha which is honestly no better than a 3d printed statue in terms of playability, and the Timelines one is just the wrong character.

>>8800157
Yeah I was iffy on MP knowing the QC issues and the now absolutely insane prices, so the Kingdom stuff has been great. I'm not really worried about the tight joints on Primal since I've been beating the shit out of him since I got him with no issue, and none of the other toys have any kind of stress or breakage for me at least. And even if they do I'd much rather have a $35 toy break on me than a $250 toy.
>>
>>8800157
>>8800159
MP and Kingdom are different beasts entirely. MP is for displayability and Kingdom for playability.

>>8800156
You’re wrong, because I don’t already own a regular Paleotrex, and I’m going to get the new Transmutate specifically because it is Transmutate.
>>
>>8800163
I mean true, which honestly might push me to just sell my MP, prefer playablity.
>>
>>8800163
I'm aware of this and this is exactly why I didn't go in on MP BW. This is more just a modern MP problem than an issue with those though. If I pay $300 for a third party figure or even something like a Chogokin I expect to be able to transform and combine and play with it in addition to it looking good, not just be able to put it on a shelf and maybe take a few photos.

You'd think so, but it's probably not fucking happening.
R.E.D. will probably be dead in the water long before that could even happen, and even then it's pretty clear R.E.D. is only doing bankable big names.

>what point is there to making a figure of it if its nothing like the show? For anyone who cares about the character, the figure is going to be a disappointment
Well, that's just plain wrong. I grew up on Beast Wars. I liked Transmutate (and always wished they'd managed to save her/fix her). This toy isn't show-accurate, but that's easily reconciled by realizing she's actually got a beast mode now (the original couldn't transform at all due to being deformed). Accepting that this is an AU from the original Beast Wars timeline and seeing that she has the ability to transform now easily explains her new appearance - her original Beast Wars appearance was a deformed version of her Cybertronian body, while her new Kingdom one is her (a still deformed) Beast body. And now she can actually help by becoming armor - seems like a win to me.
Only thing that might give me pause is that she MIGHT have some GPS issues in the future, but it doesn't look like they're using that old 'swirly' gold on her, so she might have a chance.

I guarantee Kenner saw the Cyborg Beasts and Galvatron's spark crystal and told takara"Lets do a whole line like this!", and thus the Transmetal IIs were born.

Its not a new take, its a recolored paleotrex because too lazy to make a proper transmutate. It would be better if they werent lazy and made a real one since it wouldnt matter to you since you already have two options for this toy

Weaponizers arent really transfomers either, and they coulda made a weaponizer transmutate with its own pieces. Could have even done the exact same collect the parts gimmick like 10th anniversary, but its cheaper to print those sticker cards people throw away, and/or couldve made a cop-out transformation for the sake of it like the quintesson judge toy, or made it a pack-in non-transforming toy like SS wheelie or whatever that quintesson guy is in the pit of judgment pack. It would take up a big amount of the plastic but you could do a big set like that one released via pulse etc

Maybe theyre making a RED, idk, I took one look at that awful cheetor and noped away from them

The organic nature of the Fossilizers invokes more of a horror ascetic than the Weaponizers. Rather than hunks of metal slapped together, you get bones and stuff that gives off an innate sense of wrongness and body-horror, resulting in vibes similar to things like Resident Evil or Deadspace.

Robots what transform. Other deformation robot brands just dont seem to have that balance of articulation and durability.

Seriously, though, how much force do you need to apply fucking STICKERS? If I didn't know any better, I'd say he was deliberately TRYING to break that - there's no way that much damage was just an accident.
>>
>>8800790
This. For all the shit hasbro gets they really are the only company that seems to hit that sweet spot of durability/playability/price, there's other good transforming robot toys out there but they're either too expensive, too big, or not articulated enough for my preferences. TF is just the only line that consistently delivers fun transforming robot toys for a solid price IMO, but if someone could point me to other brands in the general size/price range of transformers with similar articulation and build quality please do I wanna vary my collection a little bit more.
Also did you design those cute witch jets? if so very nice anon, 3d printing may not be quite there yet but I'm very hopeful that in the future it could lead to an explosion of unique independent toy designs that aren't limited by small production runs or shipping costs or whatever

how the fuck do you destroy a figure while putting a fucking sticker on, I traced it back to a lazy eyebrow community post and of course all the comments are from people convinced it could never be the idiot who shattered his figure's fault, it must be hasblow trying to sabotage the poor TF consumer like they always do by designing the figures to deliberately explode. I don't like the overuse of clear plastic either and wish hasbro would just use opaque plastic and paint windows black or blue but jesus the worst breakage with current figs I've ever gotten is a tab snapping off

Gonna get a little >reddit here for a sec, but Transformers have gender--since gender is a social thing, it's how you present to people and how they respond to you based on that.
What they don't have are sexes, because sex refers to your genitals.

eg. we call Arcee a female because that's how she looks, but Transformers aren't sexually dimorphic because they don't have genitals and reproduce by pretty much everything EXCEPT sexual intercourse.
Sex and gender are only seen as synonyms because they usually are, and also because TV, especially kid's TV, is afraid of saying the word "sex".

It's quite easy to fix a loose port with small application of brush-on super glue like JB Weld or Gorilla Glue.
