Magnus looks great for how the gimmick is implemented. Gonna skip the dedicated Prime version though it doesn't really look good enough when you can't excuse it as being for the combination gimmick.

I wonder what they'll do for Magnus repaints though.

So does anyone have the Newage Constructicons?

>>9292580
Yeah, because Ultra Magnus already exists.
>>
>>9292580
I would not trust MP44's nu-MP paint to survive being shoved into a suit.

An armor upgrade kit would be fun for MP10 but to get any kind of decent end result I wouldn't even bother trying to make it transform, just make it some attachable parts and leave it at that.

>>9292773
I've got the first two sets. I like them, but they don't have that premium look and feel of their past releases.

Scrapper and MM came out a couple weeks ago in China. No NA retailer has gotten them in yet though.

>>9292527
I swear, more and more /v/ bullshit is making it over here. Just seems like the second a company fails, literally everything they do from that point on becomes a failure and prior even start pretending they always were a failure, and they'll bend over backwards to find things to complain about to say it. It's like the /toy/ version of TORtanic.
>>
>>9292936
TORtanic was a pretty poor comparison to try and get your point across, considering everything Bioware put out afterward was also awful.
>>
>>9292980
What I mean it's that /v/ had so much fun seeing TOR crash and burn, that they became addicted to it. They needed their next fix of failure so now fucking every game that comes out from any company, they look for everything they can to claim it as a garbage fire. Game gets a 8.0? It's a flop. Game has a bug or two that isn't even consistent or game breaking? It's a flop. Game sells less than *other game* but still made a solid profit? Flop. TOR made them enjoy shitting on games more than they like playing them. After FT turned to you the worse, /toy/ has been behaving similarly and it only guy worse after NA dropped the ball on their Devy set. Worse yet is we saw their Prime/Magnus prior to that and people liked it but now so many are pretending that never happened and the figure always looked dead on arrival. Just feels like there are more and more folks here lately just looking for their next flop figure because they want to laugh at people who bought it and feel superior that they didn't.

That level of smugness has always been a core part of the third party experience. It's fucking retarded ass elitism that also plagues mainline transfags. Devy looks lame as fuck. But Magnus and prime look great. Especially since they said 60% of the cab mode is different from Prime. Can't wait to mess around with it.
>>
>>9293209
It's extra fucking retarded when the whole point of 3p to begin with was that brand loyalty was stupid and that cool toys should be bought because you want the best version of a character, not MS is better than NA or FT is better than FH. It's all so tiresome.
>>
>>9293214
In the early stages of this new legends boom, the unity of everything being better than Dx9 held us together for a while. But then the cock waving just had to start. The companies are just as bad too now. This is why Transformers are my side piece. Too much negative shit

Ironic that just as the mainline stuff had brand wars more or less cease entirely thanks to Legends being retired, that 3p had new brand wars start up almost simultaneously due to combiner dick waving contests and the like.

It's because a huge portion of the fandom are insecure retards and I'm not just talking about some of the TFW boomers, the Chinese TF fans themselves are a big part of it, and that's before we even get into the weird phenomenon of Southeast Asian collectors slash hoarders slash scalpers slash smug wannabe TFWiki editors. If you ever lurked places like the Vietnamese, Malaysian or Indonesian TF communities you'll be surprised at how many of them hoard FT's shit in addition to premium stuff from other brands like statueshit, Bandai's Soul of Chogokin and even vintage Godaikin bricks. There are people down there whose toy collections are easily worth more than their houses.
>>

Lets be honest, people here post walls of cluttered shit thats worth more than their houses. Collectors are just hoarders under a more self important title.
>>
>>9294006
Well you're not wrong, shit piles up really fast which is why I made a rule of space for myself, whenever my shelves are full and I still want that 34857362939th iteration of Optimus then something must go.
>>
>>9294006
>Collectors are just hoarders under a more self important title.

I've sort of dealt with a hoarder neighbor and man the difference between an excessive collection and actual mental illness hoarding is just not comparable.

When my box wall extends to my kitchen and I can only use one stove burner because the rest are covered in transformers, then I'll know there's a problem, but until then I always hate when people make that comparison.

Having the mental illness known as collecting, and hoarding, are the same thing, just in different strengths. Autism is a spectrum, not everyone is ultraviolet tier retardation.

Hulkie and generationtoy devy
50 ko's
Fanstoys or mmc
0 ko's

I just wonder why somethings get touched but not others
>>
>>9294196
I think it's as simple as the fact that some company owners just have more influence outside the realm of transformer toys so you can't really KO shit under their noses. Like whoever runs Magic Square clearly has no sway considering most of what they do gets KO'd but there isn't a single Fanstoys KO because those people can probably get people killed if they find out a factory is aping one of their molds.
>>
>>9294196
It depends on their relationship "guan xi" with their sub-contractors. DX9/UT and Warbotron/GT have shitty factories that sold their CADs. The DX9 owner not protecting their CAD was one of the many reasons why DX9 designers quit.

Some KOs are reverse-engineered though, like the MFT stuff that aren't as widespread.

Then you have 5th-dimensional tier KOs. According to MFT, their prototyping sub-contractor sold their CADs to the late PaPa Toys.
>>
>>9293420
Guarantee it's the exact same toy both times, you'll just pay extra for the gold Magnus armor
>>
>>9294274
I somewhat doubt they'd sell the Magnus version by itself due to the mold differences, especially the matrix window that's designed to open in the armour.
>>
So I'm new to 3rd party transformers figures and wanted to order one off showzstore, is that site legit does anybody have experience with that site?

I use Showz plenty since American retailers like TCP and TFSource charge me like $30+ for each legends toy I buy.

Got Saltus Alternative, I'm a bit bothered by MMC's last minute changes (green ended up more saturated, yellow "belly button" should've been tan instead of yellow). This makes the darker greens contrasts too much with the figure, imo.

He's stillvery handsome though. Unfortunately the Studio OX head on my copy has a small paint blemish which annoys me too much to ever display it with the DX9 Carry.
>>
>>9295078
I've never had to deal customs, but I only did like six orders at this point. Maybe I'm lucky so far on that.
And I'm not real sure about what delivery service it uses but I've not had too much trouble on that end either. It's also typically like $3 to ship things I buy so I got no complaints, especially since the items still get to me before American retailers get it.

I do wonder what alternate colors they'll offer for Magnus. Clear seems to be a given but gold is off the table because he didn't exist to get lagooned, and since Galvatron didn't get one, that's a pretty good indication they aren't gonna give it to characters who weren't there. Otherwise, what's left besides diaclone colors? Toy colors with red legs and brighter blue? How would they even distribute them? Clear makes sense to do Magnus and his armor. Toy colors seems like they could just do the armor alone without a matching core robot since the only real difference is the silver bumper instead of red. Diaclone colors seems like they could split it between the Prime mold for the core bot and then do diaclone armor to just skip the chest matrix gimmick with the justification that diaclone doesn't need a matrix. Well, unless part of the Magnus retool includes extra tabs or slight shape changes to even fit and secure into the armor but it didn't really seem like it did.
>>
>>9295519
>he didn't exist to get lagooned,
Didn't they lagoon Cliffjumper even though he wasn't lagooned in the show either?

Anyways, if they are willing to do Galvatron levels of retooling, they could always turn it into a Ginrai

Back in early June, Magic Square made a post saying that each of their two packs would contain combiner pieces, and that reservation would have you get (or able to redeem? not quite certain) both cartoon AND comic parts. Scrapper & Mix Master SRP is $100.

NA says "fuck that / fuck you" -- SRP for $100, $110, $115 AND $70 for their skeleton.

Same here. I preordered the set when it was still in "uncolored preview" mode on ShowZ so I thought maybe I got shipped a set without whatever the "preorder bonus" is supposed to be. Anyone know when the rest will release? MS has been real quiet these last few weeks and it's kind of spooking me.

Yeah I wouldn't be that surprised if they end up selling the devy parts seperately, or price hike the last set or something.

I can maybe see why they might not decide to include anything with Scarpper and Mixmaster since they thighs could just come with Hook and Longhaul, but yeah.

I don’t care if it’s not ABLOO BLOO BLOO MUH TOON ACCURACY OH GOD I’M TOOOOOOO ING, it needs some offset accents in slightly different shades of green and purple, and some of the mechanical details highlighted.

I have multiple versions of every mould NA has ever put out. I honestly think this Devastator looks like complete shit compared to their other recent output, it’s like they dug up some CAD files they had lying around from a few years ago, around the time the Datsuns were released. It absolutely isn’t up to their current standard. I’m not entirely feeling their Prime or Ultra Magnus either - if those cross the rubicon of a $100+ price point for a Legends figure, I think I might be done with NA. It was nice while it lasted.

Funny thing is NA Megatron is almost identical height wise to MS Megs. NA OP and Magnus are, based on digibashes, are also the same height as MS versions. But their other characters are way smaller than MS versions and are more in line with IF. Now their Devastator is a bit too tall for both MS and IF combiners lol.
>>
whats your opinion on hello carbot? Are they worth collecting?
>>
>>9297619
They are doing fix parts for damn near everyone to deal with the ugly hollow legs several of them have, but no idea how they plan to release them. Not sure if they're gonna pack them in for free or release them as paid DLC.

As for G2/diaclone, G2 was already confirmed and was shown off wearing OX parts, which did go a long way in giving it some much needed detail. Then there's the toy colors but we haven't seen much of them either. Can't speak for diaclone but NA was asked about SG and they said yes. But again, no idea on if any of the other versions will get fix parts too or how they'll get them, not to mention no word on how the OX parts will work/be distributed.

Better engineering than Tobots since Sonokong was Takara's old Korean licensee after all. However, the line is mostly stuck in Korea so it's $$$ to import especially with how all their stuff are 24+cm huge.

>>9299572
Honestly, forearm gaps are something I can excuse at this scale. It's not my preference, obviously, but at this scale, regardless of who is engineering it, there are physical limitations that don't always allow an option to deal with it and sacrifices have to be made somewhere. Many flaws are also far more noticable in blown up high res photos than they are in hand. The near MP levels of engineering we see in many 3p legends offerings has kind of spoiled us and we forget it's a goddamn miracle they got as much of it in there as they did. The larger you get though, the less excusable things like forearm gaps become. Official deluxe scale is pushing it but sometimes excusable but no 3p deluxe scale is, and no matter who it is, voyager and larger it's completely inexcusable to see.

Power Baser is solid, but there's been lots of problems with Naval Commander. Mine came with a cracked shoulder and 3 of the fingers broke on the first transformation. I contacted Fans Hobby directly and they were very cordial. They sent out some replacement parts. Still waiting for them, though. Even with the broken parts, it's still a very fun figure. I also have Double Evil, God Armour, Athena, and their 3 Monsterbots and they're all great.

Double Evil is not only properly Masterpiece sized but also Masterpiece styled. His bulky proportions give him that classic evil super robot vibe. Carnifex is cool but he has his own niche. What's weird is most of the boomers in my local community actually prefer Carnifex because of his greeble and edgier design.

I don't really think it's weird, Japanese G1 isn't as popular with North American G1. Many people like IDW's take and/or stylization more.

I mean these are the same boomers who prioritize FT bots over anyone else's, to the point of them still not having a complete Superion and Menasor after all these years. You'd think they'd go for the Overlord with a more classic aesthetic in spite of where he came from. But I get what you're saying.

>>9306234
>>9306573
Yeah because it basically means people only need to buy the swimsuit and the much cheaper Hulkie KO team to form Devastator. The most important points of articulation are all on the suit so the entire thing is not just serviceable, it's actually brilliant if it was intentional since it also gives longtime Hulkie owners an option. Just last night I spoke to a dude who plans to use his Weijiang KO Hulkie with the NA suit and sell his MS versions. I still prefer how the MS version looks, though.
>>
>>9306234

>>9306837
That's pretty awesome, I suppose. As a whole, NAs devastator is still complete garbage, but at least the stupid 'swimsuit' is still salvageable with the Hulkie bois so you don't have to buy half a dozen of NAs overpriced limbs.

>>9311574
While I don't disagree, several of their recent bigger guys have been $70+ and none of them came with giant trailers for accessories. Despite being a very simple in terms of engineering and functionality, large accessories like trailers pretty much always nearly double the price regardless of who's making it. I can pretty much guarantee you MS's Prime 2.0 will be at least $100 as well (though probably still close to NA's price) considering some of their latest prices and the fact that they are also including a trailer.

I'm still so fucking mad about this. It's the one fucking TF I want more than anything is a proper high quality update to. Their G2 Prime was fucking perfect in its style and simplicity and if anybody was going to get it right, it was gonna be FH, yet they sidelined it to pander to Japanese shit, a lot of which ended up deviating further and further from where they started engineering-wise. I really really hope they find a point to step of the Japan train and go back to G2. Laser Prime still needs a counterpart and there's plenty of rad G2 original shit being that to crack into that they could do wonders with, like the Laser Rods, and nobody is touching any of it. Best we ever get is repaints.

You have to remember that no matter what we outside China believe, 3P TFs are primarily meant for the Chinese TF market and they care about G2 much less than the Japanese shit. Then on the other hand you have lots of people, both in China and worldwide, whose connection for TF was started by the Japanese shit, or solely the Japanese shit. These people became loyal FH customers starting with Power Baser and FH probably thought it's better to focus their attention on that segment. I personally don't see them getting off the Japanese G1 bandwagon when even fucking HasLab is jumping on it.

Mp market crashed
Chug is dead
Legends is going the way of the mp

For real though I think a lot of companies were just priced out with the rise in prices and too fierce of competition. Mp is only x transbots and fanstoys with some mmc. Chug is just planet x and mmc at this point (the only reason they're even called chug is because the toys aren't g1 designs). Legends is magic square and new age constantly trying to one up eachother with iron factory ignoring their bullshit.

Overall the market is a lot narrower than it used to be, but the interesting stuff is still there if you know where to look

Damn the wild west of 3P is unforgiving, but I welcome the change myself, I am gonna try to sell off my MPs and use that cash to make a nice little legends collection, I always found that MPs arent very fun to take off the shelf and fiddle with due to their size.

You're not alone in realizing that, there's a reason fans and 3P companies have been jumping into the legends bandwagon. MPs are great for display, high detail photography and Facebook group humblebragging but they're not that great as toys. I sold most of my MPs and kept only my absolute favorite ones for display. There were a bunch of anons who mixed their Legends stuff with Hastak and 3P citybots, their shit looked pretty good due to the better sense of scale and the fact that the somewhat lackluster articulation on the titans is still more or less acceptable because of their sheer size. Really the only thing they need to do when paired with Legends is to look gigantic.

Can I probe you for your opinion on Mixmasters legs? Are they as much of a clusterfuck as people seem to think they are?
>>
>>9315282
Couldn't tell ya, friend. Those are all TCP's own shots.
>>
>>9315282
Not him, but it's more about the instructions being fucking horrendous rather than the legs being consistently difficult to transform.
Transforming Mixmaster might have more steps than Scrapper but I find that Scrapper is a lot harder to pull off consistently. More things need to be in line for his legs and it's hard to actually see them line up.

>>9315217
You can store the guns on their alt modes. With Mixmaster you don't use the gun handle but the rectangular holes on the side of the gun, and they go on one of the rectangular tabs on the sides of the truck's rear.

>>9315282
It looks daunting at first try but once you've done it back and forth a couple of times you will realize it's actually pretty easy and intuitive. This anon >>9315302
is right, Scrapper is actually the more difficult one.
>>
>>
>>9315347
I saw being able to store them, yes (linking back to the previous image); it's just not in any sort of elegant manner.

Is the magic square devy also a partsformer?

It has about the same amount of partsforming as Toyworld's version.

It's not great, but because Na is so much worse it's easier to forgive MS. Personally I'm more inclined to forgive parts forming combiners when the kibble turns into something. At the absolute minimum, I expect the leftover parts to turn into a trailer or something like that. But NA obviously didn't even try anything like that here, and MSs kibble just clips together, not really transforms into anything.

It's only good as a cast list filler. The engineering is like hasbro legends from 10 years ago.
>>
>>9315609
Oh NA's is definitely worse, to an almost comical degree, but MS is still an unacceptable level of partsforming for me. It feels like we should actually be trying to innovate on Transformations instead of going back to G1 levels of combiner kibble you know? Especially when there's already been a few Devys that have done some genuinely cool stuff, like fucking TFC nearly a decade ago using the treads of the arm bots as the combined forearms? That's cool, even if Hercules is really dated by now. It feels like MMC is the only company really trying on that front
I'm hoping this era of "combiners" is over soon, and we can get some actual combining robots. The sooner I never see another fucking naked Menasor actionmaster the better
>>
>>9315611
Id take the Iron Factory if I could find it desu
>>
>>9315616
The problem is these idiots who put toon accuracy above ALL else. I fully agree that the treads as forearms thing is super awesome and a natural innovation of the og design, but because it's not toon accurate, people just don't want it. It's fucking obnoxious.
>>
>>9315616
Does tfc Hercules work with a legends display?
>>
>>9315636
What is the age demographic for the "tooner" anyways? I'd imagine that at some point there's going to be a big shift into beast wars, bayverse or more realistic styled 3ps in the market at some point

Guy forgot to extend Mixmaster. I wonder how many people are going to get the set and then complain about the legs being different lengths.

Should be fine, it's only a legends scale combiner

That's a really cool display. Whatever version of Fort Max that is looks so much better than the SDCC version I got...plus all those upgrades, man it looks legit.

I'd rather take my chance and wait for a KO of the whole thing rather than play mix and match or play into Legends FansToys greed game.

That is the Takara Tomy version with some DNA upgrade kits attached, including the gun. But the sword is the stock one that comes with it.

Honestly if this is good enough for you, then sure whatever, I'm happy for you, but know that you have incredibly bad taste because this looks like complete crap. The only real improvement is the plug for longhauls hole, but even that still would need painting before I call it good.
