>>9086201Waste of toys on a character everyone hates.
>>9086204What TR Thunderwing could've been.>>9086204Everyone loves Waspinator.
Kingdom really got disappointing all of a sudden damn.
>>9086213Yeah I didn't think that Warden leaving would cause it to drop off but Wave 1/2 compared to waves 3/4 that we're now seeing is like night and day. Maybe it's just because they didn't have an MP to demake into a deluxe but fuck, man.
>>9086201So, with the WFC trilogy coming to a close, what's the future of CHUG?
>>9086223According to leaks (which could be bull) next lines will downplay G1, while focusing on adding stuff from different Transformers shows.
>>9086223Don't worry I am sure we will get our annual geewun Optimus and Megatron but this time Optimus will have like a spoiler and Megatron will turn into a different armored vehicle
>>9086228>transform Optimus prime from truck to robot mode>activates a sound gimmick with Peter Cullen's voice>"SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE"
>>9086213Don't be a drama queen, most of the line has been great.
>>9086228>implying we wouldn't fork over Voyager MSRP+tip for an SS86 Optimus Prime like the beaten dogs we are
A big box...
>>9086275For a big transformer
>>9086275>>9086277Fake, no cats have appeared.
>>9086275Inb4 Dragon Dildo.>>9086277>Unicron headSo it's a Unicron-sized Dragon Dildo, made by Junkions.
>>9086277>>9086281>>9086282Sorry to disappoint you friends
Transformers Animated Rodimus MinorMaybe the first actually good toy of the character, depending on how you feel about Energon.A sleek sci-fi space car like you'd expect. In a deep, non-burgundy, red.In a twist Animated Rodimus' toy is lighter than it should be opposed to most Rodimus toys being too dark.The car holds together well, almost too well and rolls along nicely. Sham I took a picture at the perfect angle to show a gap in the windshield that is non existent for any other viewpoint.The spoiler is the real eye catcher as it always is. Although Animated wears it slightly more subdued than most Rodimi I feel.
>>9086293Japanese version was hella shiny.Glossy metallic purpley red.
>>9086303Has Hasbro released any Hotrod/Rodimus in burgundy plastic or paint? closest thing was Classics Rod isn't it?
>>9086291Now that's a lot of shit.
>>9086314then there was this smexy thing
>>9086315All the accessories are in the bags on top of the box.
>>9086291>>9086315More kitchen appliance than transformer.
>>9086293Everything slides into place all snugly and Animated Rodimus looks alright all stood up.Thin waist on him like a lot of Hot Rods but his oversized sweater of a car hood hides it better than MP-28. SS86 Hot Rod manages to avoid that, as you can see on the toy that I own.A minor thing is that he trades out the silver Auto-badge in vehicle mode that Animated Autobots sported for a traditional red one.Never been a fan of his somewhat gaunt face. But I can live with it.>>9086303>>9086314It doesn't happen often but this is one Takara figure that's an easy skip for me. I like the red more.>>9086316This on the other hand... I need it.
>>9086201And still no Pipes.
>>9086324Rodimus balances a lot better than I though he would.Ball ankles definitely help but this is the sort of thing a lot of toys would need a toe joint for.I can say the shoulders don't feel good. The way they're jointed is just so uncooperative.Legs do feel good. It's been a few days since I've got to play with a toy with hips, thighs, knees and ankles.The double bow was a pretty unique choice for Rodimus. Maybe more unique even than choosing to not have his exhausts swivel around.>>9086323Gotta laugh at how your room instantly gets taken up by three huge boxes when you unpack that thing.
Been said a million times but pictures don't translate the scale of him.
>>9085388I'm gonna list off some complaints just to spite >>9085837The tusks on her head limit how much you can turn it, limiting an otherwise really well articulated head for a figure of her size. The tail parts forms. You can put her in robot mode with it still attached but it's pretty long and she ends up on her tippy toes. Luckily there's a spot to store it in robot mode on her back so you dont lose it.Painted rubber parts. I have concerns about the longevity of this toy, and when I first got mine her jaw was so tight I thought I was going to tear it off before it would open. Ended up taking a hairdryer to her to get it to budge.So there you go. If you just want a fun little robotsaurus to fiddle with, sure, get her, but if you hate partsforming and rubber parts? Get her anyway. She's super charming and if you dont like her at least she's cheap
>>9086260I've bought the TR Crashbash mold twice (Overkill, that is) and all the Prime Masters despite them reusing parts. And TFP Abominus despite owning Infernocus.
>>9086201Is the chest suppose to be open for the new one?
>>9086468I thought so, thanks. Weird they changed the wasp head design but I guess it's meant to look more realistic.
>>9086373We warned you bro
>>9086201Show be the repaints and I'll get the mold
Bit slow to post this pic but here's the only place I could fit him, and that's only after moving the chest of drawers forward.Simply magnificent. I'll do robot mode tomorrow.
>>9086201Y'know, obvious mistransformation aside, he doesn't look too bad, actually. Scores better than Rhinox and Scorponok, anyway. I missed theT30, so this one should do just fine. He needs his BFF Terrorsaur, though; poor guy's life really went to hell after he died.
>>9086556Honestly, the only real issue at the moment are the arms below the elbow, they're way too thin, and looking at the transformation, they might have been able to make them a bit wider.
>>9086405Mine's had the problem of the tail getting stuck in either the beast mode slot or her hands. Makes me not ever want to remove it since it feels like the knob is just gonna tear off the next time I do it. Probably just overthinking but it really does suck. Doesn't help that it's a nothing weapon, even for a beastformer. Would've just taken one pin joint on the thing to make it interesting and work as a sword, or just make the end of the tail the handle and the base of it a mace or something that stores inside the torso in beast mode.
>>9086201some fag thought it was a painted custom lol
Is powermaster Optimus prime a decently stable and well built figure?
>>9086568Hasbro versions legs are more stable, but the toy's just shitty all around. Takara fixed a number of problems, but the legs are less stable.
>>9086201Hate the non wasp thighs, they really make the gens figure stand out. I'll probably wait for the inevitable gen select/netflix version
>>9086293>>9086303>>9086314I literally just bought one from mandarake
Waspinator doesn't look that great...>>9085753Kup when>>9085819Cute!>>9086032>>9086037>>9086061>>9086042No no NO NO>>9086104The great TR one, an older legends-size one, and a big Jazz(?) retool I think>>9086293>>9086324>>9086347He's p great, albeit not sure what to do with him
>be famous content creator Greg "M.Sipher" Sepelak>just being a responsible defender of womyn's rights on twitter by taking to task a degenerate hentai ""artist"" for disresecting our beautiful queens with harmful """"art"""" depicting them in disgusting hyper-sexual situations>get called a piece of shit by Animated character designer Derrick J. Wyatt Why was Wyatt so unprofessional?
>>9086655I have no idea what you are talking about, Why should I care?
>>9086655Wyatt did what? when?
>>9086658>>9086675Don't reply to them, they're trying to derail the thread with off topic eceleb bs
>>9086244Don't be a fucking idiot I never said it wasn't. But wave 2 sucks for beast wars.
>>9086556People are always shitting on Rhinox and Scorpy but I'm looking forward to them.
>>9086684I'll buy Scorpy if they remold him into Quickstrike. The boxy body would work more. Id buy it even if it didnt change the transformation
>>9086680Genuinely want to know what happened tho
Is there a transformer that turns into a horse? Something like a cowboy or knight on horseback kinda deal going on.. does that make sense even
>>9086697It's been discussed a million times already
>>9086703Only 2 I can think of are BWN Mach kick and BM battle unicorn and it's repaint
>>9086703Yeah there's a horse in beast wars neo named mach kick and a unicorn in beast machines named battle unicorn who was repainted for universe. Mach kick is kind of a native american inspired guy, there was a cowboy snake in the series too. Unicorn is like a samurai.
>>9086710both of those are pretty cool, much kibbleI wonder how high the guy who thought of making a Battle Unicorn
>>9086697One of the first posts I found on google. I don't know if this is exactly it tho because I've never heard of this situation before either.
>>9086714>Unicorn is like a samurai.amazing.. I wonder if the old toys hold up still joint-wise
>>9086714A lot of people are intimidated by that horse because of his transformation, but it's really not that bad if you know how to do it. What makes it hard is that it's not at all intuitive where everything needs to go, but if you know where it needs to go going in then the toy complies and doesn't try to fight you every step of the way like a lot of figures do nowadays.
I looked it up and the 2 horses got in the colored horse crossover because of course they did. I need to track him and the snake down one day I have most of the BWneo original molds but never got those two for some reason.
>>9086726I can't believe they didn't make any crossover mech for that series, would have been crazy some shit like pony transformers? that would be cool
>>9086733oh wow that's pretty awful and does not hold up or represent either character wellI want it
>>9086736Its beast mode is actually pretty amazing.
>>9086741the robot mode needs help
Its unlikely that they would do a remake of battle unicorn or mach kick isn't it? even with the new beast wars stuff they seem to obscure for a remake
>>9086746>even with the new beast wars stuff they seem to obscure for a remakeYeah probably but if an easy repaint can happy they'll probably do it. We just got Beast Wars Neo God Neptune and Skywarp (Japanese version of American Magnaboss Silverbolt, not even just a name thing ours has a white head not silver) Maaaaybe a Leo Prime will happen but that's probably even too much wishful thinking right now.
>>9086755that new neptune what ever looks pretty cool but not something id buy, I'd kill for a horse transformer that worked like the new Wreck-gar allowing for another to use it like an actual vehicle
>>9086373>>9086505he's the size of a 11 month old baby
>>9086733Imagine a pony combiner, for example the uhh main character ponys have a more human like standard robot mode aswell as a robotic small pony horse thing and then boom combiner creature, ha image if the combined into a massive horse instead of a you know normal bidped robot
>>9086732Closest they came was that pony repaint into Prime/
>>9086800as always hasbro is dumb>>9086801explain this
>>9086804>explain thisTurns your CW toys into a big robot centaur. I printed a couple but never got around to cleaning them up enough to try. You'd need two torsos and six limb-bots, four feet and two hands. I don't remember where I got the file, thingiverse?
>>9086811woah that would be cool if I had any combiners or a 3d printer
>>9086868When does hasbro ever listen to the customer? never
>>9086868T30 Legends, take it or leave it. G1 wanking is eternal so get used to it.
>>9086874earthrise one is amazing tho
>>9086871>>9086873>>9086878What got deleted?
>>9086879someone was asking for an IDW optimus prime, then after that they were complaining in a very childlike manor about them making more G1 primes (the second post had image of the newish cybertronian prime)
>>9086881he said adorable prime? i didnt see that
>>9086874>I just wish hasbro would make an adorable Optimus prime that wasn’t another G1 style version. Like it’s just getting silly nowYOU're adorable
>>9086881>>9086884>>9086885Well now I want an adorable Optimus prime
>>9086888what if it was Female adorable Optimus prime?
>>9086888Make Transformers Adorable Again
>tonton has WaspinatorThis shit is so funny, so when they will announce FF?
>>9086888>>9086892I actually have Softimus (but not Slumblebee), he's actually p swell. Hasn't replaced teddy, but is still p great nonetheless. Hope you guys are able to find him, wasn't able to find Slumblebee (these are their actual names) near me though.Think there's also like clip-bots from a while back, hand-sized soft transforming buddies. Wish I could get some, like Hot Rod. FUCK I need him. Stores are opening this week, I hope they're still around..
>>9086315Emphasis on the shit part.
>>9086900I've got slumblebee. I got him because he didnt have any scratchy velcro on the outside unlike softimus.Car mode is lumpy but hes still a neat novelty
>>9086894>Can't get the original because everybody lost the fuckin' wings>Can't get the 10th anniversary version because it's always MISB pricewank>Can't get the t30 one because everyone is now selling theirs for raep pricesThat's what I get for being late to the party
>>9086924I skipped BW until Kingdom, well at least they will look good on the shelf.
>>9086924hey at least he's not as bad looking as Rhinox or Scroponok.
>>9086894So This Waspinator has the exact same transformation as the T30 then.Only major difference seems to be his wings aren't tied to a gimmick
>>9086962>£40+customsEh I could get buzzsaw boxed for less but thanks for the effort anon.>>9086968I'm in the same situation with Rhinox, missed the t30 one and now I'm stuck with kingdom but I'll take what I can get. Scorp looks like a hard pass for me, could spend a little more and get the original mega class figure with all those sweet gimmicks.>>9086961I've gone hard on BW since the beginning of this year. Now I've got a pretty sizable collection of original and kingdom guys
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDxi64sDq74&ab_channel=5MinutesToy5MinutesToythis might be the closest thing I could possibly get to with my kind of money for a horse-like thing..
>>9086554Where's lil Galvatron?
>>9087044*Falls into the void*Sorry kiddo
>>9086969His arms also go sandwiched in his body instead of the sides like T30. If he has a waist in addition to the ankle tilts then it's gonna be a buy for me.
>>9086920Waah I'm so jelly- why was the velcro a concern?>Car mode is lumpy but hes still a neat noveltyOptimus' arms folded up makes his cap vaguely square (you just turn both these guys inside-out) but yeah, Slumblebee's alt looked like the most adorable amorphous pillow ahahaha
So I just got Siege Jetfire, and while checking on some features not mentioned in instructions, I discovered the piece in the chest has a peg below it. Is that suppose to go somewhere else?
>>9086718He redeemed himself for Animated right there.
So do you replace a figure when a newer version, better or worse, comes out? Or do you have both versions hang out like Optimus Prime from Earths 1 - X?
>>9087071You mean the slots in the middle? That's where you plug in the 2 long guns.
>>9087107Depends. I don't replace, but I'll be willing to buy another rendition of that character if the new toy is notably different. I have plenty of Generation toys that weren't faithful to the cartoon model, so I still like those and don't mind getting new one. On the other hand, now that many toys are going for cartoon look or as close to their G1 look, I don't get them if they're not almost perfect.In the event I'm happy with the current mold and they release a new version, I might grab it if it gets recolored into something I like.
>>9087110I meant the block in the cockpit. You can take it out and it has a peg below it. It's just weird that it has that, so I feel like it's suppose to peg somewhere when you take it out of the cockpit.
>>9087121Jetfire has seats for Titanmasters in the cockpit and backpack. That block is essentially a filler piece.
>>9087038>>9087044He's there!You made me look to make sure I hadn't lost him lol.
When’s kingdom coming to Netflix? Or has it already dropped?
>>9086969Doesn't the T30 also have a design flaw where the arms will break?
>>9087157It launches on 29.07, we might get trailer today.
>>9087160Nah man it's your knees that get fucked by the time you're in your "thrilling 30s"
>>9087181Not him but I'm 23 and ever since I've been 15 or so every few hours if i squat down my knees go pop like i'm cracking my knuckles. Not sure if it's normal or not at this point...
>>9087139>Seconds into the video>The entire insect head is clear plasticRough start.
>>9087158you mean the bug legs? because I've only heard of those and the wings breaking.
>>9087181>>9087184I'm am 25 (6 next week) and my ankles and knees feel like someone's grabbing tight on them, I can twist my ankle or kick and have ankles and knees sorta "pop"A cane helps to walk bc my legs get tired, you should probably talk to a doctor sooner than later, instead of being a lazy pizza shit like me
>>9087187Only half, like with siege Starscream.
>>9087181>>9087184>>9087208Christ I'm 32 and I slavsquat regularly. Stay limber kids.
I had a random monkey paw thought:>Hasbro finally makes a new Generations release of Bumblebee>it's a retool of Waspinator into a Beast Form Bumblebee
>>9087208After I pop mine they don't do it for a few hours, usually 4-5.>>9087226Please push me around when I'm in a wheelchair!
>>9087227>Bumblebee but an actual beeHas this been done before? It seems so obvious.
>>9087107i only replaced toys for the right reason, like my henkei megatron definitely will be all loose and yellowed, so that gets replaced soon.but if i have toys of the same character but each have distinct designs, old and new, they stay.
Wanna get a Jetfire, is the T30 good or should I get the siege one?
>>9087062>velcroI figured that he'd be comfier to hug since there's no scratchy squares of velcro on the outside. Cuddleability is important in a stuffed toy!
>>9087237I'd be cool with this only if they call that version of him "Volkswagen"
>>9087107I have a small collection of displaced toys, and it's been growing recently as I've bought SS86 stuff. RTS Jazz, Generations Kup, RTS Perceptor, Classics Cyclonus etc. I like having some of the older stuff though, Classics Octane was always cool to me even though I've got a better one from Titans Return now. Nerf gun Megatron has long-since been cycled off my main shelf but I'm never parting with that thing, he's great.
>>9087254I own both. Siege looks good on the shelf I guess, but its badly put together. Especially for that price.T30 has some scummy metalic paint on accessories, but is overal in my opinion a better figure.Also depends on what look you like better. Im partial to the updated valkyrie look of T30. And siege Jetfire is a bit big for no reason.
>>9087254Both have optional armor upgrades, both look good.>T30Cons-Lacks some basic articulation like waist, wrist and ankle rotation.- Plastic can feel a bit cheap and he has big hollow gaps on his limbs.-Chrome paint will chip, be careful with his torso hinge.Pros- Sleek altmode.- Not fugg huge.- Clean deco.- G1 toy homage>SiegeCons- Hes huge, as big as a combiner.- Heavy on greeble detail.- "snow stains" paint on his legs.Pros- Tons of articulation.- Handles to carry bots under him.- Working cockpit.- Effect parts- Cartoon accuracy
>>9087139Disappointing, small and doesn't even seem to make up for it in terms of engineering or appearance.
>>9087264There is a reason but just one you don't agree with
>>9087237It can't be done. Descriptive trademarks.
>>9087297"Autobot Bumblebee", problem solved?
>>9087307Now I'm really wishing I found the T30 when I had the chance.
>>9087305>>9087307>>9087313Kingdom actually looks like a bootleg due to the dayglo colours and the insect legs/antennae. Only thing I think it has is the Legends paintjob on the head and the ability to put the wings up as it doesn't have the flap gimmick the T30 had. Easy of a pass as Rhinox. Honestly making me worried for an eventual Tarantulas but I guess there's no prior figure to do worse, besides the original 1996 toy.
>>9087320Prrrrrrrobably? 'Maximal Bumblebee' might be better.
>>9087322Why is it so fucking hollow in the back?!
>>9087330>Maximal BumblebeePerfect, print the packaging and start the retooling
>>9087331Do you want a real answer or is this just you saying that out of habit
>>9087323>TarantulasWonder if they'll make a new mold or just remove BA chesticles.
>>9087347I say keep em, I want tarantulas with bountiful tits
>>9087347>>9087350Going by their tendency to make the BW toys' beast mode more like rl animals, a BA retool isn't that unlikely.
>>9086201Are these the final colors? It seems kind of weird to have such opaque wings.
>>9087297Would Goldbug/Goldfire work?
>Still dont have a soundwave>Next soundwave will probably have different sized cassettesGod damn it why did I buy all these little fuckers
>>9087375Cuz u gay
>>9087377Dubs of truth, damn...... i guess I am gay now.
>>9087375For your petting zoo display
>>9087375I bought my cousin's Soundwave and got Frenzy, Ravage and Lazerbeak. I kind of want Rumble and I guess maybe Ratbat, Lazerbeak is nice but Ravage is kind of crap. I wish the Classics one fit, that Ravage is pretty perfect.
>>9087375You don't have Doubledealer?
>Octopunch>Altmode is a crab
>>9087398>Thundercracker>Alt mode is not a loud saltine
>>9087408>Bumblebee>Altmode isn't a bee
>>9087408>Bludgeon>Cuts with a sword
>>9087418>Ratchet>Alt mode isn't a Ratchet.
>>9087420>Quickstrike>Speed is a 5.0
>>9087425>Silverbolt>Is a wolf/eagleThey were just keeping that trademark jesus fuck. At least inferno was a FIRE ant
I might pick either Buzzsaw just to own the mold or normal Waspinator to make a custom of an OC I had in mind for a while.Not really hyped about this guy tee bee eych.
>>9087339Real question. The new one looks like an overpriced downgrade wtf.
>Hound>alt mode is a jeepIn all seriousness it always bothered me that they didn't call beast wars K-9 Hound instead
>>9087398Actually a little-known fact, yeah!>>9087421Was sorta hoping Siege or ER Ratchet would have at least one, so sad>>9087434Geewun Redone had>you assume that just because my name is Hound that I'll be good at finding things?>well you're right
How were they?
>>9087438Hulk looks pretty cool, Iron Man might be too. Spiderman looks kind of shit.
>>9087398If HftD/early Generations Pretenders remakes were still on the table and they followed the exact same logic as with Bludgeon, I would be fine with something like this for the robot mode as long as they kept the diving helmet.>>9087438Hulk was the only one I had in hand and, though it might have been the fact that it had been in store for a while and pretty beaten, it was the kind of floppy and heavy that I'd rather never have to deal with in any figure.
>>9087438Hull is pretty good I have one and like him.
>>9087434It's the same reason Bumblebee never appeared in Beast Wars. It would have come off as too much of a descriptor rather than a name, diluting their hold on the trademark.
>>9087438>>9087444>>9087456>>9087470Hulk could be great if his shoulders and waist didn't had a power punch gimmick, they're spring loaded and limit his poses, Ironman used low quality plastic and his backpack was flimsy as fuck, Wolverine was great, a better Roadbuster than what we got in T30.
>Stranglehold's modes has nothing to do with strangling or holding>tfw you will never be held>>9087226>Stay limber kids.I'll try..>>9087230>After I pop mine they don't do it for a few hours, usually 4-5.Same same, I can keep clicking my wrists though>>9087256>I figured that he'd be comfier to hug since there's no scratchy squares of velcro on the outsideIt's just for his legs, and his back hole closes nicely.>Cuddleability is important in a stuffed toy!Mhm mhm, good taste.
Picked up Kingdom Dinobot today. Bout what I expected: Great bot mode, goofy ass dino mode that is kinda charming. Wish his weapons were bigger. Quick question: How do you get the thighs in dino mode to snap together?
>>9087487>How do you get the thighs in dino mode to snap togetherRotate his biceps.
>>9087429But he is silver?
>>9087493Hm, gotta play with it, if I ever put him back in beast mode. Thanks.
What was the last toy you had to actually look at the instructions to Transform I can feel my way through any SS but for whatever reason Cyberverse Rack'n'Ruin had me stumped, felt like an idiot
>>9087517RotF Mixmaster the other day
>>9087517none recently? though i never did transform airrazor just put her on the shelf, Kingdom megs was the last one i looked at.
>>9087517If I'm struggling I can usually get a new transformer by looking at the stock photos of the altmode.
>>9087375why haven't you grabbed the Siege one? should be easy to find, hell the Netflix one should be easy to find, either is fucking great.
>>9087525That's fair tho, ROTF transformations are MP levels of complexity
>>9087487Because of the way they work, it's possible for the hinge at the top to warp slightly making it harder for the dino thighs to tab together. I ended up putting a twist tie around it to hold it closed and left it for a bit, and now it holds itself shut again
>>9087536>Netflix soundwave>Easy to findsure for 100 bucks it is, those greasy fat fuck scalpers knew what they were doing when they grabbed 4 of em off the shelf at walmart
>>9087391I like the way you think.>>9087393>>9087536Never found one locally, I'm old fashioned >>9087395I do not.
>>9087553I'd recommend checking Japanese sites, since the netflix stuff is more general retail in Japan
>>9087545I'll give this a try, thank you.
>>9087517BW Rampage a few hours ago because it's been about 12 years since I last did it
>>9086201Hello fellow man children. I can't decide between ER Scorponok and Siege Omega. I want a big plastic japanese robot baby and I would buy both if they weren't the size of small children. Any help making my decisions for me? Also Wasp looks kind of cool. Better than kingdom Scorponok at least.
>>9087633Do you want a good guy or a bad guy
>>9087603His knees are too tight
>>9087644I DONT WANNA BE A BAD GUY ANON!!!
>decide to say fuck it and go ahead and ship my pile of loot from BBTS>got a shipping notification the same daywtf, okay BBTS. I'm not complaining, it's just...unheard of.
>>9087666In exchange your soul now belongs to Satan.
>>9087672>Got your package right here mister... Beezlebub!?
>>9087633Omega is just more interesting overall. Only get zarak negro if you want the other.
>>9087633I find Spreem's base mode to be better, plus he comes with a micromaster. He also comes with a few effect parts. Scorponok's base mode is a bit plain and lacking features, and the scorpion mode isn't great. Unless you really like the fact Scorponok is a double headmaster, get Spreem.
>>9087305>>9087307>>9087313>>9087319$20 for THAT?
>>9087672Here I am 50 years later in a chain gang singing "OH LAWD, SOLD MY SOUL FOR A KINGDOM GALVATRON"

>>9087761Little sad that the limbs aren't pop-offable
>>9087633both are fine playset bots, spreem has a more cohesive base mode, scorp has a toy accurate base but he does have a hidden trap door/ torture device in his chest.

Where he’s just this an unstoppable determinator who refuses to give up or stop whatever mission he’s on, no matter how much he’s stabbed, crushed, blown-up, or dismembered in the process. He just keeps on going with a single minded focus and unwavering tenacity. No matter how many times someone (seemingly) kills him, eventually he’ll somehow be back to try again. Waspinator doesn’t care, his victory is inevitable, it’s simply a matter of time.
>>9087839That sounds worse than something Beast Machines would do and this toy looks really disappointing.
>>9087842In so glad I bought that Waspinator. I regret not getting Rhinox too.
>>9086675Said something like "you're set will never be half as good as Sicko-Mofo's" which is completely true
>>9087848>>Better wings>>Better knee Bend>>Better ankles and feet>>Posable Head and movable mandibles in Beast mode>>Ball jointed Antenna >>Same amount of arm jointsYeah I'm thinking the Kingdom figure is better. Yes the Takara Generations colors are nicer, but he ain't better overall. Based Kingdom
>>9087133This is dope I hope TR gimmick is the one that finally sticks
>>9087865Speaking of,Kingdom BW Grapple Waspinator remold when?
>>9087858I'm incline to agree, they even got waist joint for Kingdom and though the hollow leg is unfavorable, least we can remove the wasp leg from the bot mode.
>>9087868Nah, BW Inferno is for Voyager class or BIG Deluxe only.
>>9087865Heh, I'm using BW BA as a Tarantulas stand in.
>>9087868I'd be fine with a retool into antagony
>>9087322His knee articulation's shit though fyi
>>9087889You know his lower arms were assembled backwards right?
>>9086924Get the telemocha and ignore everything else
>>9087858Based Kingdom enjoyer. Waspy looks like it'll be a lot more fun to play with than T30, if only based on having knees that bend more than 45°. Not even mentioning the loose joints and breakage issues present in the mold. Biggest gripe for me with the new one is the thick bug legs, but other than that the wasp mode looks great
>>9087305I hate how lazily painted the legs are
>>9087331Hasbro has been cheaping out on transformers for a while now. Literally everything has large hollow parts.
>>9087925WASPINATORMON, DIGIVOLVE TO!
>>9087870Oh he DOES have a waist swivel?
>>9087986Yep, just watched Ton Ton. Poseablility is quite nice and the wing can rotate in bot mode too.
>>9087547You should be able to find it for under 70, shipped.
>>9088003shit, you got to it faster than me >>9088006
>>9088006I still want this but cant find it anywhere, much less at a price id be okay with.
>>9088006I legit think the reason they made Digivolving toys was because of Beast Wars
>>9087925Unbased consoomer paypig
>>9088006Can someone please tell me how Waspinator even got back to Cybertron? 20 years later I still don't get it.
I’ve heard a lot of people talking about siege Optimus prime’s waist joint snapping in two, is it common or something to worry about?
>>9088037I have 3 shattered glass primes (dont ask) and nothing like that ever happened if it helps? Its a earthrise repaint though.
>>9088029Why? Because I don't want to mess with a figure with no waist, less than 90 degree knees and a shoulder transformation destined to break? I had T30 Waspinator, he looks fine but the new one is better suited to my tastes, I;E a solid posable figure with a more realistic beast mode. It's fine if you prefer T30 but it definitely has its flaws
>>9088037There's been literally one case of that ever happening. You have to have whole hogs for hands to break that figure.
>>9088037I've never heard of that happening. Transformed mine probably several dozen times so far and nothing is showing any signs of stressing or breaking so it's probably fine
>>9088053So are these cracks or scratches on the middle hinges or something? I’m confused>>9088054How many times can you transform something before it breaks? Cus I’ve undoubtedly transformed this dude near several hundred times over the first month I had him
>>9088065looks like scratches
>>9088048>Its a earthrise repaint though.That's like saying "Yeah my Optimus is fine it's the RID version though", it's an entirely different figure you mongoloid.
>>9087839Well, they did have Rampage for that kind of feeling
>>9088076I dunno, it’s all kind of worrying considering how it seems to be like a lot of the war for cybertron figures are brittle and breakable, which isn’t normally an issue but considering the climate of panic buying and scalpers, finding a replacement for damn near anything costs way too much
>>9088092Nine times out of ten when you hear about horrible QC issues it's one freak accident or the work of absolute hamhands.
>>9088027Are any of those any good? Some of the new ones looked kinda cool but also very shellformer-y
>>9088104So, and I’m only asking because I haven’t been here for long enough, did we get the same amount of coverage regarding toy breakage during things like the prime series, powermasters, Titans return, generations, power of the primes, etc?
>>9087305>>9087307>>9087313>>9087319>>9087322>>9087751>>9087761>>9087839>>9087842>>9087848>>9087851>>9087854>>9087868>>9087925Waspinator in WFC doesn't convince me. The color palet. The "hollowness" in some parts of the figure. The articulations. Looks really weak to me. While the rest of the predacon look good, the arms just do not fit with the overall figure; kind of a blocky arms....It just that it's not for me. Really weird this Beast Wars Kingdom line. Some figures are really good. Maybe the best of the line. But others could be the worst ones too.
>>9088114I think I saw more worrying about clear plastic than actual broken toys.
>>9088092If it was a stress mark, it would have a very faint outline and be in an even shape. In your photo, it looks like a deformed L and there's no outline.If you can't see that in person, I'd recommend you clean that area as best as you can and look at it again.
>>9088130So it’s more likely to be a scratch or processing factory issues or something? I tried cleaning it earlier but it seems like it’s actually just prt of tue plastic itself >>9088125Isn’t that something valid to worry about?
>>9088114Kingdom in particular seems to have had a noticeable uptick in breakages. Almost every toy seems to have something specific that can go wrong.
>>9088150Well, what was the state of the area? Did the white have any mass or did it just sit in the plastic?
>>9088122Beasts DO make up half the lineMore than half the new moldsOf course some would be top tier and some wouldn't
>>9088168It was sort of flat? It’s hard to say but it didn’t seem to have a lot of noticeable mass
>>9088033Tarantulas survived. At some point he builds a spacebridge back to Cybertron, and chucks Waspinator into it to test it; Waspy arrives on Cybertron just as Megatron does and ends up as one of the first sparks he extracts.Not mentioned in the show, but presumably happens at the end of Primeval Dawn, which is referenced in other material and is considered semi-canon.>>9088044>Ape-man catapultExplicitly stated NOT to be the case by the creators. The proto-humans just kicked him out of their home; he wandered off for a while on his own until the second phase of the Beast Wars started up.
>>9088033The BeastFormers, despite the organic outer shell are actually capable of surviving in the vacuum of space unassisted. It might destroy their organic outershell but it'd cause no damage to them. Primal's initial plan to destroy the planet buster involved him flying back to Earth after jetisoning from the pod. So its very possible Waspinator flew back into space and the journey took him millions of years.
>>9088015Thats his DNA Digivilution.
>>9088342Didn't Tarantulas get vaporized?
>>90883713H comics had him get revived with vok powers using the Fox kids repaint. He wound up showing up in the Universe story later as well
>>9087839>I have an inexplicable desire to see a version of Waspinator who’s unkillableness is played straight/as badass instead of as comedy.Where he’s just this an unstoppable determinator who refuses to give up or stop whatever mission he’s on, no matter how much he’s stabbed, crushed, blown-up, or dismembered in the process.

Man my Target has been KILLING it lately with arrivals,these are my last 4 snags
>>9088389Or it might have been if that subplot got elaborated on.
>>9088393Damn I want Rhinox so bad. That articulation alone worth the disappointed father look he has.
>>9088393Dude how much did that all cost?
>>9088419But at least he can stand by his own. That universe version...
>>9088423Voyagers are $30, right? So $120 for that haul, plus tax, I'd presume.
Waspinator was always the worst character in Beast Wars, it's only fitting he ruin the Kingdom line too.
>>908843024€ for the primal and Dinobot one respectively in my country. 50€ for Megatron.
>>9088371Blown apart, with only his feet left, but not vaporized. It's not the first time he survived that kind of damage on-screen, so there really was no reason to assume he was gone for good to begin with. That aside, as >>9088374 says, he ends up getting revived by the Vok he absorbed, gaining all of Tigerhawk's powers (exactly what he wanted in the cartoon anyway, just without the 'getting blown up part' first). His ultimate fate is unknown, since I don't remember him getting killed in the Universe storyline. Either way, he starts up a second phase of the Beast Wars shortly after Primal and co. take off with Megatron, and eventually makes his way back to Cybertron with a small army of new Predacons he got from all of the remaining Stasis Pods that were left behind; the Maximals, led by Primal Prime, follow him back, also with a small army.
>>9088393You lucky fucker. I've seen these same 4 Arcees for at least a month now
>>9088065Those don't look like stress marks at all.
>>9088080Earthrise Nemesis Prime is the Siege mold.
>>9088458Aren't there another stores and options anon? Cause that look like shit.
>>9088465My mistake he said Shattered glass not nemesis.
>>9088458You think THAT'S bad
>>9088458>>9088475>having physical storesLook at big fancy pants over here
>>9086201got my animated skywarp, it flip transformers which i am not a fan off, but the plane is pretty nice
>>9088466There's a Wal-Mart but I shit you not, there's still Siege Shockwaves on the shelf. Rural south, man. >>9088475This is one of those photos that will define a generation. It's like the retail store equivalent of the national geographic Afghani girl with the piercing eyes. Just so striking.>>9088480I mean...do you really envy us given the state toy aisles are in right now? You and I are basically in the same boat, we don't have a way to procure things in person...unless you're really big into Arcee.
>>9088494is robot mode is pretty cool, i like his mug. i wonder why the dont do more expressive face on the new transformers!
>>9088496>there's still Siege Shockwaves on the shelfKek, long-term shelfwarmers are hilarious to me.Pic related is mine, from a Shopko in WI.
>>9088501shockwave seems to be the only tf that i see peg warm, do people like the robot?
>>9088512Yeah! Hell yeah! Shockwave is a quality figure. They just made a fuckton of them for whatever reason
>>9088519never a fan of the alt mode
>>9087547I got mine back around easter in a ghetto walmart, but since no one here lives near memphis i guess it got scalped? I live in the woods now so i guess the netflix seeker set will be a frustrating waste of gas.
>>9088512>do people like the robot?Absolutely, he's one of the better figures from Siege. Seems they just made a ton of 'em. Plus, they made an alternate black version of him (A Galactic Man homage) that people may have opted for instead of his standard purple, meaning more purples left on the shelf despite being the exact same mold. I remember there being some whining about his addon-bits, but he's probably one of the only bots I'd find it acceptable for; after all, it seems perfectly in-character for him to invent a hover platform that enhances his mobility in bot mode and can combine to him as power armor for increased offensive capabilities in both modes. So very...logical.
>>9088528i guess i just get it, when ever i see a new tf line there is like 10 of him just chilling out
Transformers Beast Machines MegatronThe undisputed lesser of the dragon Megatrons.I say that but I do really like the sculpt work.I adore the head and the dangerous dragon talons.Colours are funs. the pillar or red that he is stands out incredibly well against the grey wings.The construction is not fun. I wish the arms attached to the body.And that neck.It's just a mess of gears and springs that never does what I what. It was probably constructed by Satan and I hate it.
>>9088544His veiny wings always creeped me out.
>>9088544Megatron does a bit of transforming. It's not a complicated toy by any stretch.The dragon arms are mostly a carnival of failure. They don't look good in dragon mode so that they can facilitate not looking good in robot mode. But I suppose most of everything visible here is a write off. An obligation.I can appreciate Megatron carrying on a little bit of the Transmetal 2 styles.
>>9088544>>9088556We all know who the REAL beast machines Megatron is
>>9088501I never got the opportunity to get siege shockwave because my walmart just didnt carry it for some reason and My late reintroduction to transformers with siege. Would anyone here recommend him or Galacticman?
>>9088359I wonder if you could use Transmetal Waspinator as the "Paildramon" to Trustinator's "Dinobeemon". Not a perfect match because the third mode is a plane instead of a motorcycle though. Should size classes be used as level with Baby and Baby II as just Protoform, Basic/Scout/etc as Child-level, Deluxe as Adult-level, Mega/Voyager as Perfect and Ultra/Leader as Ultimate-level?
>>9088562look above, and I echo the calls that he's great, 'cause he isMore into purple than gray, but that's me
>>9088559Yeah! This cocooned little devil!Beast Machines certainly was unique with its antagonist. You gotta give it that.There's something about this particular flavour of greeble that I like. Maybe it's the contrast between the small cluttered area and the smooth everything else.Oh and I haven't mentioned it but this boy has crazy good light piping.
>>9088562It's a pretty good shockwave figure at least, I don't think there's really been any complaints on the actual figure. It really just comed down to if you like the add ons and think it makes the price worth it. I do think both the regular and galactic-man look pretty good, so it will probably come down to personal taste for you
>>9088562Galactic Man is pretty fun. That red lightpiping looks incredibly evil with his black coloration. Fun feature with the Siege mold is that you can still get the G1 Handgun mode out of him by flipping his ship mode upside-down and rearranging his optional part with his 'tailcoats' into a proper handle for him. Definitely recommend getting him in either color.
>>9088565>>9088567Aight, I got a spare giftcard. So I'm just in a buying mood, thanks peoples. Also, unrelated, but does anyone else think that Impactor could've been a good base engineering wise for a tank Megatron? I'm not to fond of the Siege mold so i just thought about it for a bit.
>>9088458>>9088475>tfw province opens like, today/tomorrow>hoping to drop by one or two TRUs after church but expecting the fucking worstIt's been nearly a year, just Siege/ER clearance for me, thanks>>9088544Had him as a kid, something was screwy so an exchange was made for uh, "that" big Cheetor. Which sucked, but I forgot what I ended up getting via exchange.>>9088580Hope you enjoy Shockwave, fren. He's a good mold and a decent-sized Shockwave, extra pieces make his good gun mode into a good spaceship mode. In robot mode, ehh..
>>9086718I got this fuck's autograph on the relevant Botcon comic along with the Minerva custom class figure. Then I turned around and sold that shit for $1,000. lol twice.This was the year before the custom class shit became way more freely available I think. I remember the Soundwave/Jazz figure being obnoxious to build the next year and not many were actually completed because it was so difficult to complete.
So, are the wave 3 core figures ever going up on Amazon? None of my local stores carry core class.
I got Huffer... a few weeks ago now.Just let him out of his cardboard prison. Cute little guy.
>>9087438I've owned a few of those. It always bugged me that just as they were starting to get the hang of it they ended the line.Figures I owned:Wolverine - Pretty decent. Very basic transformation and articulation, it's one of those ones with a bit of frustration depending on what order you do things in but once you get it right, it sings. Plus, he's made of a really sturdy plastic, makes him feel invincible. Maybe because he's an off-road vehicle? They made him in three colors, I got the black and silver because I wanted a Decepticon car to threaten my autobots and he looked damn good doing it. The yellow and blue one has a nice bright quality but I don't trust that yellow paint.Captain America - Really quite good. He turns into a humvee which is kinda genius and he's got a spare tire that turns into his shield when you press the star button and that's really fun. The transformation really indicates that this is Hasbro guys who've *handled* transformers and know how they're supposed to work but they just don't have the history and the talent pool that Takara does. They were gonna do Captain America as the Punisher and replace the spare tire with a machine gun and fuck, what a missed opportunity. There also used to be a pretty common custom where people would make him into Swindle, and it fit really well. That's the sort of build he has.Ghost Rider - Tragic, absolutely tragic. They straight up copied the Animated Oil Slick toy, which is a great idea and they should have continued developing on it, but instead they hampered his leg articulation and made him just a wreck. Plus, the gummy plastic on the skull was really awkward. Ended up trading him on the BST.Always wanted to get the bike spiderman, the muscle venom, and the Hulk but all three got really hard to find right around the same time. And it absolutely bewilders me that as the MCU became not just a thing but The Thing Hasbro never got Takara to go in on starting over properly.
>>9088686Would have given a nut up for a big-ass space tank thanos based on the RotF Megatron, only with an infinity gauntlet gatling gun instead of a murder arm
https://news.tfw2005.com/2021/06/12/kingdom-wave-3-deluxe-wingfinger-spotted-at-us-walmart-435387Hey, /toy/! Are you ready to see nothing but this for the next year and a half?
Gamestop has Kingdom wave 3 deluxes releasing next week if anyone wants to get them
>>9086920>slumblebeeno one is going to comment on this genius portmanteau...FINE ILL DO IT. WE ALL APRECIATED IT BUT I HAVE TO SAY IT!
>Kingdom galvatron found in US>Wave 3 Deluxes found in USThat's cool, when do my pre-orders ship?
>>9086720I'm more intimidated by the fact that he appears to be kneeling in supplication to the Devil in the bottom right
>>9088728just checked my preorders. 3/6 Seacons ready to ship. it's gonna be a summery Christmas this year bros
>Huffer's cab is solid plastic with a clear plastic inlay for the windows that serves no structural purpose whatsoeverI want to say hasbro is learning but I know it's just a fluke
>>9088763They did the same sort of thing for inferno and magnus. For whatever reason it seems like carbots are the only ones they don't do it with so far
>>9086714>Unicorn is like a samurai.You must mean Mach Kick. Unicorn and Stampede are clearly based on knights. Also, they're awesome.
>>9088773You're an idiot, Starscream.
>>9088580Honestly, I bought him and was utterly disappointed. His transformation felt pretty underwhelming, his head-sculpt with I thought would be better in person just didn’t work for me, the bit where his legs swing behind is a bitch to get right, the way his feet are positioned makes posing him much harder than it should be, along with the ratcheted legs making it even more annoying to pose and overall he just feels much, much too light for his size
>>9088773Where do you find old toys like this? Ebay is a wasteland full of broken and overpriced shit.
>>9088692I want to get it for partswapping but wtf is that robot mode
>>9088559Yeah its this furry.
>>9088853>wtf is that robot modeninja+xenomorph+skeleton basically
>>9088764hmmm interesting point. is it just too expensive to do the double-layer for the carbots? they did it a hundred times over the years.
Why does everyone call Chris Mcfeely racist?What did he do to make you all say that?
>>9088850just be alive longer, dummy
>>9086719Get the recolor. He may not have GPS, but he sure as hell turns into sand.
>>9088856Oh shit I forgot about him.Beast Machines was so fuckin weird.
>>9087438At least they weren't those older Marvel Morphers.
>>9087517Trying to combine the SS Constructicons. I was so pissed at the end of it I don't ever plan on separating them any time soon.
>>9087517kingdom black arachnia because the tab on the torso and waist is bit tight and im too scared if i fold it wrong
So are these any good?
>>9088950They were very awaiting copy.
>>9088959jejej...I know, right?I totally slept on the early Cyberverses but picrel looks awesome as all get out.
>>9088033Beast Machines isn't canon
in addition to making delicious breakfasts, Huffer has continued to rocket-skate across the contiguous united states. he just passed through Memphis this morning, following ol route 40.might as well keep the Tony hawk soundtrack going.https://youtu.be/dVd8WMUOjyY
>>9088978Keep on powerslidin', Huffman.
what animal is criminally under represented in transformers?i would say the hippopotamus>it kills like 500 people per a year>aggressive and unpredictable>its always hungry, hungry
>>9088997I'd be down for this. Maybe he could be Rhinox's frat boy older brother
>>9089024would there be a road trip ?
>>9089033The Pachyderm BrothersThey're on a mission from Primus
>>9087375Where can I get these cassettes?
>>9089054Anywhere with a time machine or on ebay if you don't mind paying late tax, look for them as Siege spy patrol and generations selects Spy Patrol.
>>9089049this video has no right to be as funny as it is.
>>9088994you too, buddy. it a beautiful world out there!
Twink has Grindor, so review will be today most likely.On one hand it,s the same mold with minor chances, on the other two copter bros on the shelf will look so good.
>>9089057Managed to get these for msrp 2 months or so back, was pretty lucky.
Apparently there's the Sunstreaker/Runawhite wave in some TRUs, in my province that's re-opened today. No news/sightings about TRUs or Wallys in my area, but I'm a bit optimistic. Not sure if ER will be on sale, but still. I warmed up to Sunstreaker but was a bit underwhelmed seeing how it was pretty similar to Wheeljack (who's sadly usually collecting dust..), is he a fun figure worth getting? At full-price, even?
>>9088997someone made this and I thought it was cool
>>9089310I don't have him but I haven't heard many good things about him. He looks quite hollow.
>>9089311I really want a common cat transformer, preferably with the same transformation as Cheetor, and black with yellow eyes.
>>9087438I owned the gray hulk. It wasn't much to write home about probably because the marvel crossover TFs weren't my thing
>>9089453>I don't have himHmf>but I haven't heard many good things about himSuch as??? Only considering getting him bc I'm lonely and antsy, and I feel vaguely bad for Sideswipe being lonely.>He looks quite hollow.Me too>>9089530Fat.
>>9089311This just makes me sad that, even though we're getting Beast Wars toys again, we'll probably never get a bunch of new characters with crazy designs like in the old days.
>>9089589You'll take your funky bone boys and you'll like it!
>>9089592Well okay, those ARE pretty damn cool.
>>9089311I feel like Seastrider should be a Maximal. He has a Speedy Gonzales feel to him.
>>9086655Double dubs of based Wyatt. The TFwiki people have always been onions faggots.
>>9086795They can have Pony mutant heads.
so i picked up studio series starscream, he is ok, his bot mode is better than his jet (??!!) mode
>>9088033Don't try to make sense out of beast era shlock. It almost makes geewun seem sensical.
