>>
>>9550545
I think it's meh. Nothing wrong with it, but most of the pics haven't been that impressive outside of Jetfire. The others:

-Megatron's ok, but his colors aren't accurate to his SG toy (even if it still used grey, the original toy uses a shade not used by the Siege toy) and the miner head might have been a better choice.
-Goldbug should have been a head retool of SS86 Hot Rod to match the original using the Hot Shot/Excellion mold (that was homaging Hot Rod and Volfog). A future SG Hot Rod could just use the Commander Rodimus mold, with or without trailer.
-SG Blurr's color are excellent, but the head sculpt still looked wonky like on the SS version.
-Starscream's ok, but the molds gotten an assload of repaints, so if I have to get one more, I'd rather buy a Sunstorm.

>>9551302
The body proportions are utter shit but what kills it for me is the face. Why the fuck did they feel the need to add a nose to a Prime character is beyond me. If their purpose was to make her fit better with the other non-Prime characters, what's the point of going for a character from a show with a really distinct style? It would be like giving Waspinator a regular face instead of the classic mutant one or adding a nose to Airazor too. Just leave what makes the character distinct alone, uniformity in a line full of nods to old shows is stupid.

I can use Legacy Bulkhead as a stand in G1 Bulkhead. Like Siege Barricade.

So is Legacy making all other continuities characters in G1 form.

Hopefully they make a Titan class Tidal Wave. That would go great with G1 figures. Decepticons need another Titan, unless they make Metrotitan.

That'd be false. Even factoring in changing camera angles and transtional frames of animation, the gun never reaches "3/4ths Optimus Prime's size". Pic related is the largest it ever winds up looking in the film.

New character = new voice actor to cast = more money spent

It's a way to keep the cast count from getting bloated while at the same time advertising entirely new toys.

>>9553528
Design wise they were never intended to be (people forget all of them Cybertron included, were planned outby the US team) to be upgrades within the same series , only the repaints and Cybertron Defense Team. The animation studios that takara used probably did it for cost or story reasons.

I personally don't mind it, it's a good way of advertising more toys without completely bloating the cast and ending up with hundreds of also-ran characters ala G1.

The 86 movie took a bunch of dead bug and jet corpses of discontinued toys and turn them into space boats and terrashuttles.

I'm not even getting into the comics, more so the UK stuff. This idea was well baked in long before the 2000s with the brand.

That had to be a Hasbro mandate to plug the new toy.
>>
>>9553528
You are forgetting the biggest reason of all to do that: Brand recognition. They didn't make 6 Spider-men/women, or have the Bat Family balloon out for creativity, they did it because those guys sell products easier. Same idea here, people might not buy Snow Plow from the show if he is just a full OG, but if he was the guy they like in the last show? Well now you want to buy that Snow Plow.

>>9553627
My 9 year old mind was not ready for the fuckery of trying to understand the weird shit that was in Beast Machines, both in looks and story.
>>
>>9553591
>Nemesis is destroyed in the opening episode
Not really, Beast Wars is canon to G1 and expands on that. The Nemesis falls into the sea with minor damage after the Decepticons board the Ark in the first episode of G1, it's used by BW Megatron in the finale, the main bridge is destroyed by the Maximals and it crashes in South America. In 1985 the Decepticons find it half buried in the jungle when searching for the Heart of Cybertron.
That's the whole story.

Energon/Superlink continues the story of Armada/Micron Legend. Cybertron/Galaxy Force is it's own thing.

>>
>>9553668
>>Brand recognition. They didn't make 6 Spider-men/women, or have the Bat Family balloon out for creativity, they did it because those guys sell products easier.

I get that but, like I said they did it to characters who didn't resemble their previous incarnation at all Like Cyclonus to Snow Cat Or Overhaul to Leobreaker. It'd be like changing Batman to Swamp Thing. you LOSE the recognition.
>>
>>9553764
>you LOSE the recognition.
You don't, at worse nothing changed, at best you see a throw away design stay in the brand's zeitgeist
>>
>>9553627
Goldbug resembled Bumblebee a lot. They even had the same alt mode.

Cyclonus and Scourge are essentially considered new characters. Nobody can even agree on who they used to be. Their back story is that they were just made from dead Decepticons

Gavatron is the only one that's kinda weird but even he was always envisioned as an upgraded version of Megs going from a gun to a BIGGER gun
>>
>>9553554
Ark isn't sexy enough. I want an amazon
>>
>>9553538
Did they keep the same voices?
>>
>>9553764
>it'd be like changing Batman to Swamp Thing
How about Batman as all the other heroes and Villains? Todd stated the figures from this arc have been the best selling DC figures. They all all just Batman as [insert DC character] but (maybe) evil. Spider Verse is the same way being so popular to get a film on it and was so well received it's being turned into a trilogy. Considering how far apart those characters were from Spidey it shows how just having a thread attached to the wall crawler effects sales.
>>
>>9553572
I mean everyone calls ships female pronouns for some reason it would make a lot of sense
>>
>>9553777
And that's not all weird?
>Cyclonus and Scourge are essentially considered new characters
That's more my point driving that the idea of hey a Orange crane became an Orange plow isn't that strange when looking at the history of this brand. They didn't write it that "hey I'm giving you minions" like he did in the US comics, it was "I'm going to take these dead bodies and make you stuff" I mean he built a god damn ship for them, it's weird as fuck writing wise to use dead bodies unless they are just wanting to tie al the toys together and looking at the old movie comics and ads, it seems that was the whole point.
>>
>>9553777
>Cyclonus and Scourge are essentially considered new characters. Nobody can even agree on who they used to be.
Well, after so many years there's an official answer.

>>9553794
Notice how they all still have Bat imagery attached so you can see the connection.

You way would be if all the villains looked like they always did. If Batman just became Two Face or Poison Ivy as they always looked

see >>9553777 and >>9553804
People have been fighting for 35 years who's dead body was used to make completely new OC, showing that no, you can't "LOSE" the recognition.
>>
>>9553801
But isn't the Orange Crane supposed to be same character as The Orange plow.

Cyclonus and Scourge weren't anyone. They are new characters. You're not supposed to think, Oh thats still Bombshell strutting along. The script didn't even identify them. The storyboard artst just picked random guys because SOMEONE had to be inserted in there but it had no bearing on Cyclonus as a character or a toy.

If they're fighting, then it wasn't very recognizable was it? and the writers weren't giving it any thought. They just needed some place to pop some new guys out of. Galvatron was the only one who had any serious thought applied to his previous identity.

you are moving your goal post because your argument was saying Cyclonus to Snow Cat was losing brand recognition. I just proved it wasn't and now you want to change the rules. You post is just proving you wrong on your original point.

I wasn't the one who brought up brand recognition and maybe I don't understand how it's being used. My point >>9553528
was that the new bodies the UT gang would get felt random (helicopter guy to snowplow guy, truck guy to lion guy) Plane guy to futuristic plane guy has a logical flowline
>>
So is this two thread war never going to stop?
>>
>>9553865
the fans cared because it didn't make sense. Nobody had an issue with Thundercracker into Scourge because that made sense in peoples minds (jet guy to space jet guy). Bombshell into Cyclonus didn't make sense and so there are people who insist it should be Skywarp.

And it's like UT looked at Bombshell/Cyclonus and said, let's do that over and over.

>>
>>9559254
>Which was a homage to an RiD01 figure I think?
You are correct
Leakers have said jhiaxus has green batwings, so it's definitely a possibility of getting it pretty comics accurate.

No. The same thing happened with G.I. Joe Retaliation. They were probably too far along with the first wave to delay it at this point. At least unlike Joe we're getting Legacy, and the movie toys should still sell decently enough unless it's all Bumblebee, so we ideally won't have a situation where this kills the line at retail like Retaliation did.

Anons should i get t-wrecks or regular megatron?

Megatron is great but t-wrecks has such an awesome colors of dino mode.
BUT he also kinda boring in robot mode due to grey colored torso.

Other question: will he get more rare over time making him a better option to get right now when he's down to 50euros instead of 86euros that he usually being sold for
>>
>>9552240
man, I love minicons, what fun little guys
>>
>>9561084
Megatron is selling for higher now. Both are the same QC-wise(that is, the leg pods are hard to move & might come off due to inadequate caps in their tracks). T-Wrecks wastes paint budget on painting the gray chest over in more gray. Toyhax has a Megatron set out that helps some, but may not even do one for T-Wrecks.

T-Wrecks has a better dino mode, at least. Go Better made their filler upgrade kit in both colors.

It's not about looking feminine you, coombrain.

Female transformer designs have sucked since the beginning, they don't look like the turn into anything as much as they look like a human girl with vehicle parts strapped onto her, meaning they end up with shit figures with huge backpacks most of the time.

Plus I want something that looks like it could fit in with the g1 dude bots while still obviously being female (Like MP Roadrage), which the IDW heavy design shown in >>9561220 clearly doesn't, it's a totally different aesthetic (the Legacy Arcee based on IDW art also has the same issue of looking out of place)
>>
>>9561272
Not him but >>9561167 would be fucking awful- especially as we know that Hasbro would make the barest minimum effort to make it look even remotely feminine compared to the obviously male mold it was retooled from. It is possible to get good looking fembots without either resorting to barbies with backpacks or just painting a male 'bot pink. Animated Arcee is a classic example of an excellent fembot design (fragile thumbs aside), and the upcoming BB Arcee looks great too.

Animated Arcee still ended up with with a backpack, but it is accurate I guess. BB Arcee didn't need to worry about turning into anything specific unlike how Siege Chromia or MP Arcee need to, she's a rare case. I do agree that Hasbro would fuck it up and not go the whole hog like they didn't for Kingdom Road Rage, but I still think the best solution for female designs is to treat them like a normal transformer, and then smooth surfaces to give a female vibe to contrast against the hard angled dude bots, pretty much like MP Road Rage.

But as you say, that'd be too much effort for Hasbro to exert, just slap it all onto the back, job done.

Mmm, objectively speaking, the wolf is an excellent figure but it's not worth $40 on its own. It's a really good pack though, you could use the accessories with other 6" figures (I've distributed the weapons to a few Marvel Legends) and the Snake Eyes would work well as a generic commando figure. I'm sure you could sell the Snake Eyes too if you really don't want him.

Natural lighting is brilliant for photos when it happens, sadly I like in a place that may as well be grayscale.

I was thinking of getting a lightbox I could put on my desk so I can control it better.

Only by groups acting in poor faith.

>>9562126
And by "wholly accepted", I mean by the people who hated on Drift. You know who they are.
>>
>>9562126
Only waifufags and feminists liked her from the beginning. But also keep in mind that people were warming up to Drift at the time of her introduction since he was in MTMTE

Drift's problem was he WAS Poochie until that one writer actually gave him some character. Before that he really did have all the cliches of a bad fanfic character and even marketing was like "yep that's our boy Drift why we bet he'll be the WOLVERINE of IDW"

Dunno, guess we'll need to wait and see, eh?

I've always been saying, the one thing that's been missing from my toys is identity politics.

When you get down to it, isn't Transformers nothing but identity politics.

Not sure if this is the right thread, but does anyone have a hard date on when the Furai Windblade model kit is gonna start shipping? My toy shelf is a bit of a sausage fest so I'd like to get my hands on her sooner rather than later.

We need more of these

Is it common for Wreck-Gar to not have his torso plug into his waist well? Cause mine does not at all.

I adopted this aggressive cowboy for under $40. The aftermarket for him is insane now. Wish I just grabbed one 10-20 years ago.

There was a long tim ago when BBTS had the Takara 2 pack so at that price you'd get TM Airrazor too. Heck, they were probably in the clearance bin for a while.

There is a part of me that wants Naval Commander but hoo boy am I not willing to pay 300€ for it after shipping and VAT. Probably going to wait it out and see how this fucking thing turns out. Legacy is the best time to get this thing out. If it sucks, then I'll get NC.

Was it the sexualized one they ended up redesigning? Don't think I've heard anything about it in a while.

This is ancient, mind... like pre 2007. I don't even see it in my order history.
>>
>>9562560
this is fine I suppose.
>>
>>9562558
I sure hope so.

>>9562552
It's still pretty sexualized. I don't think they really redesigned it at all.
>>
Speaking of Windblade, what are the chances of her popping up again in Legacy or whatever comes after? Kinda odd that we went from several in line to nothing in WFC.

Why do Computron, Superion and Abominus share the same head mold?

I assume because it's cheaper to recolor.
