I have no questions for you this time, but let's all take a moment to remember Death Cobra.
I overpaid for this fucker many months ago but I don't regret it for a second. What a kino alt mode.
>>9556643>says the word kino
>>9556656u wish u could lick my unshowered taint u whore
>>9556636>We actually hit reply limit this time, crazyWhat the hell are you talking about? Also, would it have bothered you to put the stamp on the image?
>>9556636Hope Liokaiser gets another chance (thats not baby size).
>>9556687Used a old paste bin too, the first one was updated to add the new trainbot.>>9556643Not a favorite figure of mine, but that is a really nice altmode it has.
>>9556636There is no reply limit, fuck off.
>>9556636Fuck off spammer
>>9556636went to a toy fair and picked this pretty sweet headmaster target master hotrod up
All the year 1-2 basics I'm missing. I could do repaints too.Hell no to Randy though.That's a ticking time bomb.
>>9557012come with this sweet instruction manual with a cut comic in the middle
>>9556643nice, i have the united rodimus version and the paintjob really does elevate that mold
>>9556974*Record scratch*"Yep. that's me. you're probably wondering how I ended up here"
>>9557014will we get other creatures?or main cast will be all we get from "modrern beast wars"?
How about a Transformers that only change gender?
>>9557162Anon, that is the entire reason idw is going bankrupt.
>>9557162Gender doesn't exist, there is only sex.
>>9557162Can't find it now but there were once pictures of a wooden one somebody made that changed from a schoolboy to a schoolgirl.
I would buy one that changed between Luisa and Luis from Pokemon, but of course no such toy will ever exist.
Neither Hasbro nor Takara ever done a Deathcobra figure, have they? Someone should get on that.
>>9557247But robots doesn't do a sex.
Got Gnaw, Slag and Wreck-Gar this week and they're all pretty good, specially Wreck-Gar. His animated self looks even cuter together with him so he gets extra points for that, too.
will we ever get a line with as much SOVL as beast hunters ever again bros?legacy seems so uninspired, i want to look at a transformers toy on the pegs and wonder what the fuck i'm looking at again
>>9557399You didn’t get any of that from the fossilizers?
>>9557399I regret not getting roadbuster bulkhead
>>9557399Oh, "SOVL" means "ugly toys that nobody wants and shelfwarm"? I guess that's a shorter way to say it.
>>9557558I got Smokescreen because he looks cool, but skipped the other spiky dorks. I have no use for his weird rubbery armor.
>>9557558SOVL stands for Soft Oscillation Vertical Landing, a type of propellered vehicle which all of these bots turn into.
>>9557162Already done:Waspinator male bot trans into a female wasp.Nitro Convoy/ cybertron Override and og Beast wars Airazor change gender if you go from the US to Japan.
>>9557355Random question, but what voice do you guys prefer for Wreck-Gar? Eric Idle (Movie Wreck-gar), Tony Pope (G1 Season 3), or Weird Al Yankovic (Animated)? Also, what's your preferred alt mode for him - classic motorcycle or garbage truck?
>>9557643There were a ton that swapped sex upon transformation in Beast Wars (Airazor, Tigatron, Inferno, Waspinator, Transquito, possibly Megatron and Dinobot, given they're based off of the dinos from Jurassic Park and Megs' skull is shaped closer to an actual female Rex's, and possibly more). The question, however, was for a Transformer that ONLY changes gender, and nothing else. It's a shitpost not worth responding to, anon.
>there are people still denying Legacy Arcee was meant to be a Road Rocket pretool from the beginningHer armblades are just Road Rocket's buzzsaw weapon split in two for crying out loud.
>>9557653I'm pretty sure it's a pretool for IDW's current Flamewar design.
>>9557657This is my assumption and hope too, but if they go for three mold uses and give anon his Road Rocket that'd be okay too.
Who was the main 1988 Decepticon in the US supposed to be?Who was supposed to be the Decepticon answer to Powermaster Optimus Prime?
>>9557679Overlord in japan/europe, i guess piranahcon in the US?
>>9557679Nobody. That's why they had to create Overlord for Masterforce.
>>9557679Scorponok? Was he around then?
>>9557647Both Idle and Yankovic are great. As for his alt mode, I also really like both. I wish I had a G1 Wreck-Gar, he's pretty much the same size as the SS86 and Animated toys and the three of them would look pretty cool together.
>>9557647Eric Idle. The TV version just reminds me too much of the Genie from Aladdin and Weird Al is just Weird Al (unlike when he was Dollmaker in Batman vs Robin).
>>9557686Scorponok already was the opposite of Fortress Maximus.
>>9557653What likely happened is that they were considering Road Rcoket during the development, but the first priority was still Arcee. The legs are obviously more inspired by Prime Arcee, the biceps an thighs are too round, the shoulders aren't remotely the same, and the back flaps are clearly from Prime Arcee.>>9557657I could see this as a possibility. Flame print top bimbo from Timelines is the superior Flamewar though.
> I miss squad posting.Destron air red reporting in!
>>9557706I'm seeing double! Four Thrusts!
>>9557679Doubledealer I think.But he was more the 1988 answer to 1987 CounterPunch. Like Quickswitch was the 1988 answer to Sixshot.
>>9557711Counterpunch/Punch is supposed to be an Autobot spy, but Doubledealer is actually supposed to not have a faction and he just swaps between the two.
>>9557653>she's not a road rocket pretool because you can't leave the wheel on>she's not a road rocket pretool because you can't open the wheel in robot modeHow will the faggot who keeps saying she's not Road Rocket pretool move the goalpost this time?>>9557697>first priority was Prime Arcee, which is why it looks absolutely nothing like Prime Arcee
>>9557706>totally not part 3 referenceAlso they look sweet anon.
>>9557740Yeah, it's clear the Prime characters being G1-ified was for the sake of reusing the molds for non-Prime characters, not any desire to update the characters or anything of the sort.
>>9557740They both have similar thighs, knees, wheel placement, backflaps, stripe placement on shins, and Transformation. Road eocket is not similar to Legacy Arcee in any of these.
So which G1 character is Bulkhead totally a pretool for?
>>9557823G2 - PyroI'm still thinking about that minicon port
>>9557830>G2 - PyroWhat the fuck are you smoking?
>>9557835Leaks, you know it's true
>>9557835G2 deserves its own molds
>>9557837This, make with the 90s nostalgia already, do a whole year of garish throwback packaging, bright colored transformers with squirt guns and rotor-missiles and color change bullshit. A year-long love letter to G2 would be a dream toyline.
>>9557835>Cube with arms and legs with two wheels facing front on each legNot that anon, and I don't think it's going to be a pretool of Pyro, but I can see where he's coming from. I would work.
>>9557653Why do people even care the nuPrime G1 aesthetic is really bad.
>>9557836Just look at the figures side by side>>9557837>>9557842This.Where the fuck are my Voyager class Cyberjets and Leader class Clench?
>>9557823imagine sacrificing the design of an iconic character just so it'll be easier to retool into some literal who that no one cares about(may still buy anyway because god knows when hasbro is going to give us a better CHUG bulkhead)
>>9557355Man I'm still upset DJW is dead
>>9557858You can get toys of Bulkhead's iconic design already
>>9557251Pokemon fans are fucking deranged retards.
>>9557846With that logic it could just as easily be an Optimus Prime pretool.
>>9557867Not a doubt in my mind that mold will show up in red and blue at some point.
>>9557858Lmao that's not why this design is bad.
>>9557867>>9557872Haven't people already speculated that Bulkhead's toy has parts that are from Beast Hunters Optimus?
>>9557858If you're implying it's a Pyro pretool, you're likely wrong. And>Bulkhead>Iconic>Pyro>Literal who no one cares aboutI always knew the EG1 hater is a Primefag.
>>9557857They didn't even give Laser Prime all new parts we are doomed.I just want a blue Grimlock, red Snarl and the green Slag and yellow Devastator like the ones I had as a kid but they rarely even do obvious g2 repaints.
>>9557879Anon, you can't really have it in your mind you Pyro and Bulkhead are even close to the same league, can you?
>>9557885What do you think Bulkhead will be repainted to?
>>9557885Oh, of course not. I just think iconic is a bit of a strong term, and just because something is obscure doesn't mean it can't be cool(although Pyro's original figure is a bit... Square). I think an ideal Pyro would have the head of the original figure, the body of the original boxart, and the colors of the Botcon figure.
>>9557889Movie Hound, duh
>>9557883>that time they did G2 Menasor and just googled "g2 menasor" and used someone's digibash instead of the real toys
>>9557861I’m glad. Animated like Prime is a cancer. Good thing Hasbro sees this too.
>>9557864I'm not interested in gender politics, I just want a Luisa toy.
>>9557883>They didn't even give Laser Prime all new parts we are doomedEven if they gave it knew legs it would still suck. The headsculpt's off, the trailer doesn't have 'the' sticker, the arms are too blocky, the hands are shit, and his trailer is emasculated.>I just want a blue Grimlock, red Snarl and the green Slag and yellow Devastator like the ones I had as a kid but they rarely even do obvious g2 repaints.Even just those would be nice. I wish they could also do Bumblebee and Starscream.
>>9557897Sometimes I fucking hate the designers for not doing enough resaerch. It's what gives us shit like KD Grimlock(though that's probably also Walky's fault).
>>9557913I'm curious by what you mean by this? Was there a terrible BW Grimlock digibash and they based the colors on that? Because the colors to me look like someone just didn't give a fuck.
>>9557897Speaking of Offroad, how do you guys feel about extra members of Combiner teams?
>>9557920Give him his cool pink microchip kneepads you cowards
>>9557894maybe iconic is too strong of a word, but i feel like bulkhead is at least on the same level as characters like wheeljack or whoever; normies don't know him by name but he's well established within the fandomalso, get out of here with prime bulkhead, he's just ironhide painted green. if theres going to be a CHUG bulkhead it should be based on animated/autism
>>9557917I saw speculation they used Armada Grimlock for reference, and then last minute they realized and only changed the colors but not the patterns. That would sorta explain it, but KD Grimlock's not stripy enough. Maybe they actually got a good reference of BW Grimlock, but fucked it up intentionally.
>>9556643that is the kind of car that I like.what is the purpose of having an exposed engine block, can any carfags tell me? cooling? I was taught in shop class that car engines basically have an open circulatory system and constantly pump oil all over themselves repeatedly like that trampoline woman, so it seems like being OUT would be bad.
>>9557897Shit I thought only power rangers did that. Fuckin Hasbro. If we get a new g2 menasor I'd buy it.
>>9556687I think asking for a special image edit is going to REALLY discourage the right people from aking a new thread. that's a lotta work.>>9557014if any of those got repaints, they were only from nihon, right? some of them, the 'beast wars 2 / neo / whatever' version was near identical.
>>9557399that does look pretty cool actually.
>>9557919I like the idea for story lines when a member dies or is damaged, also its an easy way to introduce new characters, speaking of I'd like deluxes of those kabaya Protectobot drilltank and jet.
>>9557929Because it looks cool?
>>9557920Wouldn't that be better as just a Grapple/inferno retool? Weird choice for a figure with a dedicated mold. A figure based on a Botcon figure that attempted to look like an older figure, but not basing the new mold on the older figure. I just hope they giv him the original figure's head if it's true. FP had absolutely no fucking excuse to not give Pyro his head.
>>9557926More like basedtism.
>>9557942Pyro doesn't actually have a ladder and is like a brick with wheels
>>9557926>maybe iconic is too strong of a word, but i feel like bulkhead is at least on the same level as characters like wheeljack or whoever; normies don't know him by name but he's well established within the fandomI guess.>also, get out of here with prime bulkhead, he's just ironhide painted green. if theres going to be a CHUG bulkhead it should be based on animatedAh, my mistake.>>9557931I wouldn't even care that it has the Sunbow transformation, G2 Menasor is awesome either way.>>9557934It's literally just taking the image into MSpaint, and typing /TFG/ on to the image. It's not that hard.>if any of those got repaints, they were only from nihon, right? some of them, the 'beast wars 2 / neo / whatever' version was near identical.Actually, no. There was also some in regular waves like Lazorbeak, and don't forget Fox Kids or Botcon.>>9557937That's awesome. I thought a neat idea would be>Motormaster dies>Stunticon need new leader>find Toxitron>Instead of everyone hating him like Motormaster, everyone loves him
>>9557926>not wanting a helicopter bulkhead from energonshit taste desu
>>9557946>Just has gunHuh.
>>9557867>With that logic it could just as easily be an Optimus Prime pretool.The only Optimus that looked like a fucking cube with limbs was the Energon one, you dingus.
>>9557928>saw speculation they used Armada Grimlock for referenceNah, they used feather dinosaur art, the toy looks like that cause they gave it a "realistic" deco.
>>9557934For basics repaints we did get a few over here: some were botcon repaints, but there were also stuff like lazorbeak like >>9557949mentioned, as well as Spitttor and razorclaw repaints
>>9557951You see, Prime Bulkhead and Animated Bulkhead are similar characters, but Energon Bulkhead is really only similar in name.
>>9557949Your post reminded me that in Animated there was plans for Bulkhead to become a combiner with the Constructicons somehow. Bulkhead did have episodes with them.Toxitron looks like he could be part of the Constructicons too.Not combiners but I'd like to see more OG Dinobots, insecticons snd junkiins too.
>>9557955Ah. Yeah, that has the same problem as battle damage. It's great when done right, but when done wrong it looks fucking awful.>>9557954I'm just saying.>Window pecs>Wheels on side of legs
>>9557952Just shoot the fire dummy
>>9557942>infernoPOTP Inferno does a better job than LGY Bulkhead.
>>9557961>Not combiners but I'd like to see more OG Dinobots, insecticons snd junkiins too.Well we seem to be getting more of each this year at least. Unless you're talking about new members being added, then yeah it'd be neat. Still waiting on a G1-ized Scorn...
>>9557963The bot mode chest head not matching yhe beast mode head is what killed it for me.
>>9557966No Pyro shouldn't be a twink
>>9557966That works surprisingly well. A serious disappointment that he doesn't have his red eyes though.
>>9557823Apparently beast hunters prime.So its not a mold with a g1 character in mind.
>>9557967Yeah like Slash who was great. There's countless dinos and bugs they could add, and Detritus gives president for new Junkions from non motorbikes and recolours
>>9557974That was just speculation desu, other people thought it was going to be the Prime from the now seemingly canned Rise game. was gonna be in a 2-pack with starscream.
>>9557967>Still waiting on a G1-ized ScornI can only see him with a visor and faceplate.>Ankylosaurus Dinobot>Paddles>G1-ized Tyrannocon>Pachycephalosaurus Dinobot Fembot like FP EcharaWhat would be cool new insecticons? What would an Insecticon Fembot(other than Beet-Papil) look like?>>9557968Damn.>>9557975A Junkion van?
>>9557988A fembot Insecticon could turn into an elegant moth.
>>9557988>new insecticonsPraying mantis, Roly-poly, ladybug, centipede, those could be some decent new additions as a start.
>>9557999> ladybugAlso, nice numbers.
>>9557992Build-A-Transformer>size:Deluxe>bio:Acts as the team mom of the Insecticons and tries to keep them acting as a cohesive unit. Is a Decepticon but isn't really interested in conquering Cybertron and mostly just cares about her fellow Insecticons. >alt mode:Moth>sex:Female >faction:Decepticon >color scheme:White and blue>bodytype:The moth eyes form her bus and the wings become an elegant gown around her
>>9557955thisnot the one you posted, but a different one, that has the identical pattern.it's really stupid and doesn't fit grimlock at all. black on top, white in the middle, then dark gray at the bottom representing the featherless parts. but clumsily.
>>9557919sentai introduced me to the fantastic concept of a combiner that has one extra optional member that makes it even cooler.on the other hand, combiners with optional swap-out parts, i hate. especially if that only replaces PART of another member.
>>9557937that is unwieldy even by drill tank standards, yet i love it. those feet need to fold down though
>>9557957spittor got to be his own "transmetal"i like to think he was just jealous of everyone's cool new bodies so he just manipulated his altmode a little and started calling himself a transmetal, and nobody corrected him because the preds are all either too stupid or enjoying watching him make a fool of himself.
>>9557988An ant insecticon with cordycep fungus accessories.Cockroach
>>9557963hell the red parts on his torso look like they're meant to homage battle damage, they sure aren't from the old toy
>>9557988why do people keep wanting to make the pachy-draco-stygi family female transformers? those are distinctly male dinosaurs with big expressive head crests for battling other males. that'd be like making a lady lionbot.
Build-A-TransformerDebritus Infernus Maximus the First>size:Titan>bio:When the planet Junkion’s thrusters were brought online it was discovered that the core of the planet was in fact an inert Titan. Efforts were made by Wheeljack to bring the goliath online. When the giant awoke he immediately uttered a pop-culture reference “Kept you waiting huh?” and exhibited the traits common to his people. To the shock of all his damaged repair systems had assimilated the planet and Junkion transformed.>alt mode:Junkion (planet)>sex:Male>faction:Autobot>color scheme:Junkion red and browns>bodytype:Humanoid, his head resembles a crude patchwork mix of Rodimus Prime, Lemmy and Metroplex. Detritus was originally a Metroplex-class Titan. He has grown considerably, unconsciously assimilating the planet’s garbage into his now immense chassis. Racing stripes, spikes, patchwork repairs litter his form. He also has loads pf boarding pods ready to go, the best way to deposit Junkions into enemy positions and ships.
>>9558026>soft-parts-forming / robots with clothes>Especially from something that, in the altmode, is rigidrustles my jimmies but couldn't be done any other way.>>9557999>mantisi would love to see a redo of manterror with better proportions. seriously why were his arms so huge? and fuck disc-launchers, he needs big stabby blade arms. even better with the insect limb protruding from the top of the sickle, so those can be machineguns>isopod, tentoumushivery yes, they just have to be done carefully because of all dat shell>centipedevery hard to pull off. maybe if it was two centipedes combining together...
>>9558042would be fucking cool if the fungi got like, scanned by accident and gave him cool pokemon sleep dust powers, but those would reasonably only work on organics.. so this has got to be a setting where they attack humans sometimes.>>9558047>I'M THE TRASH MAN
>>9557823Beast Hunters Prime is already confirmed, which explains the tarp.
>>9558082His vehicle mode doesn't have a tarp, and there going to need to be some seriously remolding for the chest or he won't look heroic at all.
>>9558082Yuck, Primefags deserve garbage toys
>>9558090Bulkhead has a partsforming tarp that's so that it can be replaced by BH Prime's cage or jetpack.
>>9558090Hate that the toy didn't come with the minigun.
>>9557955The problem is that while in your pic, that grey is a wash that doesn't completely obstruct the white of the scales underneath, what they did to KD Grimlock was just slather the stuff on, resulting in him getting covered in a smear of off-putting grey that clashes with the design instead of accentuating it. No matter how you look at it, it was laziness and clumsiness.
>>9558109I can't find the picture anymore, but at the time it came out, someone posted a raptor picture that was 100% used as the basis for kingdom grimlock. same awkward upper-black, same gray arms and feet and lower jaw, same broken tail streaks. and it had feathers. This featherless JP toy might also have been based on that same reference except changing it more intelligently, since they both have the same 'mask'
>>9558119>some asshole actually thought having a feathered paint mask on a scaled raptor toy was a not shit ideaJesus Christ, that level of pure incompetence is depressing.
>>9556636>Posts new thread whilst there's still a bumping /tfg/ on the boardLmao, so much for "We don't need more than one thread up".
>>9558128The last general is over, finished.
>>9558129Then how do you explain this, huh?>>9546756
The fossilizers are somehow extremely cool and extremely lame at the same time.
>>9558133Not a real /tfg/. It doesn't even have the pastebins.
>>9558128Last general reached both image and reply limit, and is finally on page 9.This is the appropriate time to move.>>9558133That's your spam thread, not the general. We're leaving it to die, and will continue to do so every time you make one. Seethe, cope, and kindly neck yourself.
>>9558125>big iron on his hiiiiip
>>9558133Sorry I made that thread without thinking and forgot the links and by the time I'd noticed I couldn't delete it. Please just ignore it.
>>9558126I've seen plenty of feather raptor looks that would look fine on a scaleraptor. that JP one looks fine, the gradienting helps. and what are clearly feather-stripes are at least a decent substitute for skin stripes.no, the dumb part is whenever you see these ones that are all black white and red, because some dickdouche got a bunch of paleofags to believe that there's such a thing as a fossil with good enough resolution to record the shape of pigment molecules (hint: this would require something smaller than molecules), and "revealed" that the pigments found are red and black... otherwise known as -the pigments that exist in animals-doesn't stop them from coming in other colors. all these people don't understand iridescence, scattering, the effect of blood under the skin, or any of that.
>>9558136right? i love some of the things people have made, but unless that thing transforms easily into something else equally cool, in a way I can memorize, it's merely a kinda cool skeleton monster that's pretty damn expensive given how many different ones you have to buy (and ideally, matching ones)
So I just found out progressive woketards think the Transmutate episode was problematic and ablist or whatever because I didn't realize Chris McFreely put political shit in his videos. It's the irst video I saw of his in literal years because it popped up on my feed and I loved the transmutate episode so much and still do. Then I saw Thew's top 10 video which I enjoyed but he just randomly mentions trannies at the end. I'm so tired. I thought I was OK with people having different beliefs as me but it always oozes into their videos or communities for the most unrelated shit ever. Or even the official media. I wish i had autistic screech energon suicide blasts right now
>>9558143It's mental to me that someone looked at that toy and thought >Main villain for the seriesWithout regard for who they eventually turned into, I feel the Soundwave toy would've made more sense to be the main villain him being the tallest and with the minion cassettes being his personal henchmen he be pretty imposing, plus his face is close to the Decepticon logo.
>>9558148>>9558136Flesh hands wrote these posts

>>9558154Isnt it a Nazi gun? Funnily enough both were heroic in microchange and some elementary school kid brandished a bunch of gun robotsThe revolver should have been a heroic autobot for Optimus to use like a cowboy
>>9558151>Chris McFreely says the sexy qt aspie gf not-Arcee Transmutate is more progressive than the ugly, crippled Transmutatewtf the Basics are based?
>>9558139don't reply to that guy.
>>9558151Hopefully people are learning now it does NO GOOD to try to appeal to these people (which is what transmutate obviously was)I'm always, always hearing stories about all these tolerant, caring bleeding hearts expressing frustration and shock at how these types accuse them just as hard as their enemies. That one old black dude who famously had all kinds of useful talks with people as unlikely as the head of the KKK, finding common ground, and these modern young people just would not actually communicate, all they did was screech and call him racist against his own race.
>>9558158>Isnt it a Nazi gunTrue, and it is certainly more evil than a mini cassette player, but if he has to rely on somebody else to hold him in vehicle mode, I just see the toy ending up as a second in command type, that the evil leader uses as a weapon.That's a really cool idea for the Microchange Revolver, I wonder if he'll ever appear substantially in future media at some point.
>>9558154I know, right?plus imagine the gun guy being the starscreamhey someone let me know, did terrorsaur's original package blurb describe him as the conniving usurper type? Because like, visually he was obviously meant to be beast-starscream, and the show went with that, but I just realized I don't know for a solid fact whether hasbro had that in mind.>>9558158the walther p38 is one of the most iconic and weirdly reused guns on TV, found in diverse and unexpected places. This particular version is from 'the man from UNCLE' and was also used in some anime
>>9558137>>9558139Reminder that the whole reason you hate goanon is because he fills up the catalogue. By doing the exact same thing you're becoming the very thing you hate and he's getting what he wants.
>>9558176>Not just having a giant hovering gun that shoots by itself
>>9558177>did terrorsaur's original package blurb describe him as the conniving usurper typeNah, here it is.>Striking from the sky like a demonic dragon, this organically enhanced robot warrior is seldom seen...until it's too late! Megatron personally supervised his genetically engineered creation, ensuring his devastating aerial combat efficiency. Truly a terror, he is know to ingest entire flocks of birds by flying open mouthed through their flight pattern.
>>9558183Certainly would have made the show more interesting, imagine it just hovering down a city street.
>>9558170OG Transmutate was just a good scifi story about a fucked up robot and the moral dilemmas surrounding her and her relationship with 2 other characters. And I sincerely doubt this Scottish fuck knew the intent of Uprising Transmutate which he assumes was to correct the problematic aspects (which is total bullshit) OG Transmutate. Although the autism parallels were there it just felt like a what if story. Also she has tits and sex appeal shouldn't she still be problematic to these weirdos? These people unironically see the world as black and white as an 80's cartoon. Which is why this episode was too much for them so they just resort to: "HURRRDURR NON RETARDS SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF RETARDS IS BAD’ Which is just so retarded and detached from anything but their own fucked up idealogy.
>>9558177Beast Wars often had inconsistent bios and stats compared to the cartoon. A great example would be Tarantulas>Card:>Retarded Ninja>Show:>Mad Scientist Spy
>>9558161>the ugly, crippled TransmutateAww, I thought she was cute.
>>9558184oh wow, that's kind of surprising then, especially hearing that the mainframe guys didn't know all that much about G1 from the start.
>>9558187no of course she wasn't meant to be autistic, nobody knew about that back then aside from the super severe savant types. she was meant to be mentally retarded and physically disabled from a profound 'birth defect'just saying issuey stuff was around, it was just different. and it solved absolutely nothing, so we were right all along.
>>9558190she was -moe-she was still fucking hideous.
>>9558183Watch Jdecker. A sixgun remold became a MASSIVE ninja gun using sixgun's gun mode. Instead of mass shifting to be smaller it just becomes so big the laser shoots off into space.
>>9558151>>9558161>>9558170They misconstrued his words-- he comments that the episode is "poorly aged" because Transmutate's disability is framed from an ableist point of view: Transmutate is a prop to make the audience sad, rather than to let it be a character with its own agency, and mostly it's this focus that made FunPub's take go with a version that could be treated more as its own character.
>>9558161Well of course he sings the praises of the version created by his buddies.
>>9558177>>9558184>>9558188>>9558197It took until FUZORS for Hasbro to remember how to write a character bio, every Beast Wars bio prior to that was "[TRANSFORMER] is a deadly and dangerous threat to his enemies, and with his wicked awesome firepower, he'll do what he can to win the fight against [RIVAL FACTION]!"
>>9558204>she was still fucking hideous.I suppose it depends on the person, but I don't think it was.
>>9558200I'm talking about both uprising and OG transmutate and specified it. >solved absolutely nothing so we were right all alongWhat the fuck are you talking about? It was just supposed to be a goddamn story not everything with retards was supposed to achieve anything. And who is we?
>>9558206>he comments that the episode is "poorly aged" because Transmutate's disability is framed from an ableist point of view: Transmutate is a prop to make the audience sad, rather than to let it be a character with its own agencyBut there are disabled people who don’t have their own agency.
>>9558026Neat.>>9558046Ironically, the only official Pachy-formers(BWN Hardhead and BM Dinotron) are male. And it's probably because FP Echara has tits.>>9558047Neat.>>9558125It would be interesting to see a Megatron that has this helmet.>>9558136Who would you choose to be their individual VAs?
>>9558206So basically only retards can write retards.The Uprising writers were overly qualified.
>>9558206I disagree with literally every single thing you just posted. I did not misconstrue his words. The episode aged like wine. Transmutate was not offensive to mentally retarded people or whatever ablism is even supposed to be. Transmutate is a beautiful and poignant tragic character. And yes tragic characters ar supposed to make us feel because people who aren't ass deep in progressive idealogies have hearts and can experience sadness, pain, loss, grief, hurt through empathizing with a character such as transmutate, but also Rampage was portrayed this way in the entire series especially this episode. Transmutate has agency, she is in the process of choosing between Rampage and Silverbolts friendship and chooses to sacrifice herself to save them from killing eachother. You are a heartless monster.
>>9558210Waspinator's bio refers to him as THE Waspinator and at one point calls him an "it" and an unstoppable killing machine. They leaned a little to hard into the homage of his name there.
>>9558205That's fucking awesome.>>9558210>Tarantulas is kidnapping and murdering humans en masse! Optimus Primal better put the sense into this retard.
>>9558224>>9558226>>9558229Here's the full comment:>Some of the comments on today's video are making me regret some of my word-choices; as a neurotypical person I can't speak for anyone on the spectrum, but I'd like to take a minute to better explain it, based on discussion and conversation I've seen surrounding in the episode in the many years since it aired. Rather than "aged poorly," I should really have said the original "Transmutate" episode was "a product of its time." The way I described it makes it sound like the issue is the presence of the euthanasia allegory in the story, but that's not how I meant it to come across; I should have more clearly communicated that the problem is that it is a disability allegory in which the disabled character is a prop for other characters to have arguments about and feelings over. The only agency the plot allows Transmutate is the choice that kills her, in order for the abled characters to feel sad about her. Several commenters have noted that the arguments the characters have are realistic ones that real-life people sadly have, treating disabled people as if they were not full people, and that's perfectly true and almost certainly what the episode was intended to reflect - but that's where the issue lies. It is a story about disability by and about abled people, to make abled people feel sad. This doesn't mean it's not a tragic, touching story that genuinely emotionally affected viewers, nor does it mean you are "bad" if you found it affecting, it's just a very common way media tells stories about disability - by framing disability from the perspectives and feelings of the abled characters, rather than the disabled characters themselves. Additionally, discussing this subject matter in the video wasn't a case of me airing my personal views on the original episode, but me attempting to sum up why the "Beast Wars Uprising" writers made the choices they made in reinventing Transmutate.Continued next post
>>9558231Holy shit, that's fucking hilarious.
>>9558234> The BWU story purposefully does what the original did not, making Transmutate disabled but giving her agency of her own, allowing her to make choices that drive the story, while still retaining the idea that others have treated her as "less-than" because of her condition, but not making it about those characters or their feellings the way the "Beast Wars" episode did. Though I might have failed to communicate this as clearly as I could have, I'm nonetheless very happy to see so many viewers on the spectrum discovering Transmutate and seeing themselves reflected in her!
>>9558206ah, so he's one of those himself.typical. let everyone know that lesson: do not be the first step in change, because the third or fourth step will demonize you to further their own goals.
>>9558226>The Uprising writers were overly qualified.Was it that good? Think I asked about it months ago, don't know if I bookmarked where to read it. I was just fascinated by the BW2/Neo guys getting cybe forms.
>>9558210that's not entirely true, but they weren't exactly TMNT-tier distinct either.>>9558215if you don't think transmutate was trying to say some shit about the disabled, you don't understand the 90s or canadians. Defects are not some kind of thing that it's logical to include in anything.
>>9558234>>9558237This guy loves the smell of his own haggis directly from the source. also that is some TLDR shit right there.
>>9558225talk about prioritizing robot mode.. decent way to convert the feet though, I give em points for that. do the pachy-hands partsform onto the shoulders?
>>9558243He's saying FunPub and all related to it are the biggest retards, anon. You retard.
>>9558234Why would you think hearing more of the same opinion from this guy would change anything about what I wrote? I disagree even more strongly now. He's jusg saying the same shit but more of it lol.
>>9558237OG Transmutate was severely disabled her human equivalent wouldn't be able function independently and'd probably end up institutionalized.BWU Transmutate may as well be one of those tiktok thots that pretend to have autism.
>>9558251>her human equivalent wouldn't be able function independently and'd probably end up institutionalizedNah it'd just be Waspinator>DUUUUUUURRRRRRR WASPINATOR AM SMARTEST PREDYCAN WHY UNIVERSE HATE WASPINATOR?
>>9558244Well I don't think that I just thought you meant it was them preaching like modern day SJWs
>>9558229i miss when it was okay to say bad things are bad, and bad experiences are part of life sometimes. a bad part. if a bad part of my life was ever represented on TV, I'd be unhappy to be reminded of it, but I'd be fucking -pissed- if it was presented as something not so bad, that people without that problem should be grateful for because they can learn something. i wouldn't mind a lesson that says "fix these problems when you see them in other people's lives, please".. that's a good message. most of my problems are of that sort. Closest I can ever think was Beauty and the Beast with the message of "hey hot nerd girls, give the big hairy creature a try. there might be a really handsome dude with rockin long hair under that gruff exterior" except nobody really liked the prince anyway. why would a magical transformation leave him clean-shaven? it's turning him into a pubescent man and magically regenerating his body, so... he should have a beard, a foreskin, and his tonsils and appendix, yknow?
>>9558231>>9558236I fucking love that. I need this to be a version of him in some other show now. Make him silver with red eyes, have people genuinely terrified of him "oh shit the 'cons have released the WASPINATOR! He's headed right for us!" and then at the end show us his designer and it's just regular ol waspinator as we know him, designing this unstoppable combat machine because he was sick of taking shit from life as a decepticon scientist.
>>9558252You would probably enjoy it and relate to transmutate cause you both have the tism.Don't worry I have it for real so I'm worse but it also means I can tell that Haggis loving cunt to shut up with impunity whicn is funny
>>9558245this.I hate to be a hivemind but it makes me feel good hearing sensible people in these threads, with correct ideas. We're sure as fuck not allowed on TV or even internet shows, and I cannot tell you the number of times I've heard people in comments be like "what are you even doing here, this show isn't for people like you"
>>9558248I believe so.>>9558258Yeah.>>9558261MMMMMM. Looks cozy.
>>9558253well that's the thing, and one of the reasons transmutate was kind of a terrible idea... transformers, mostly the bad guys but really any of them, are already pretty mentally unstable on average. Having one show up who is fucking brain damaged but sweet is like having a superhero with clinical narcissistic personality disorder. Like the real hardcore serious kind where you flat-out don't see reality. it's both inappropriately serious and redundant with the ego issues they already tend to have (again, about half the time. the other half are humble good guys or even pathologically selfless to the point of rejecting help)
>>9558265We need a version of BW that follows the toy bios 100%. Bonus points if it was styled like the box art. It's even funnier if you imagine Waspinator killing with his super serious normal face.
>>9558151>Then I saw Thew's top 10 video which I enjoyed but he just randomly mentions trannies at the end. I'm so tired.Does he? I watched it too but didn't catch anything.Then again trannies don't make me seethe so my ears don't prick up at their mention.
>>9558255No I mean, it was preaching, but different preaching. 90s preaching. They were still doing it for points, but there wasn't a mob supporting them. More like it was considered polite and vaguely correct, like "saving a tree"anytime anyone in a wheelchair showed up in old media, it was that kind of thing. You notice they don't do that anymore.
>>9558277I can see it as like.. a fictional show in-universe based on the stories people are reporting about these alien robots everyone has seen. like the in-universe men in black comics, with an extra dose of tabloid magazines which are supposed to be partly true in that setting.
>>9558258Yeah it's fucked up how many people legitimately think down syndrome kids are always happy like a dog.
>>9558187>Also she has tits and sex appeal shouldn't she still be problematic to these weirdos?I saw a comment praising her being more conventionally attractive since it gives representation for conventionally attractive autsimos who are too common portrayed as mongoloids in media
>>9558283I just disagree but idk what else to say except please dont blow up downs kids robots
>>9558289These people just change the rules every sentence they write lol
>>9558297yeah but in fairness, that is the way the school is swimming these days, so it's not like it's outta nowhere. they've gone back from 'everything must be ugly' to 'people should get surgery and enhance themselves until they're beautiful however they want to be'
>>9558297It wasn't "these people," it was just one person.
>>9558291I wouldn't be with optimus wanting to blow her up, but I would be suggesting stasis lock until she can be brought home and experimented on til she's normal.
>>9558277>The year is 2000>2 large alien starcraftsare spotted by sattelites>The first, a sharp olive green colored ship, landed in the jungles of the Amazon.>The second, a robust grey colored ship, landed in the African Savannah
>>9558268>You would probably enjoy it and relate to transmutate cause you both have the tism.That's true, but I don't like boners and her appearance terrifies and offends me.>Don't worry I have it for real so I'm worseThe figure or immense autism, because I'll bet mine is greater than you're's.>I can tell that Haggis loving cunt to shut up with impunity whicn is funnySorry, why does she like haggis ahahaha>>9558261>>9558273Looks very cozy indeed, the best boy has the best trailer to boot.>tfw haven't actually ever put anything inside his trailerWhere would I put his cannon!!!>on his backHis shoulders are already weighty enough with the burden hardest to bear...
>>9558306>Autism speaks has entered the chat.
>>9558305It's never just one person. Even with correct beliefs. I can't pretend I'm not influenced by others and mostly parroting them, except in the rare cases when I see something nobody else does.
>>9558308is that from somethingit would be interesting if they were separated not just by the usual altmode choices but by old and new world species
>>9558309i think that, being a bunch of offal stuffed into a stomach, the suggestion is that 'the smell of your own haggis' is the nastiness you're putting out.. your farts, feces, etc. you 'think your shit don't stink'
>>9558325Haven't had haggis, I want to some day.But uh... so Transmutate.... shits....? I'm confused.
>>9558328McFeely is irish, so it's probably a bit of irish/scottish jabbing at that
>>9558322>is that from somethingNope. Just thought of what a cool introduction to this fictional series would be. Kinda like a Government report or something.>it would be interesting if they were separated not just by the usual altmode choices but by old and new world speciesI don't know about that. The idea was just a super toy/bio accurate Beast Wars. I was just thinking of cool environments for their bases.
>>9558328as weird as it sounds, it's technically no stranger than any other sausage.. just ground up meat in an elastic tube. Trick is I can't imagine you could ever actually chew stomach, all that elastin and reticulin.. it's hard enough chewing through intestinal casing. So that would mean you presumably open it up and then eat it OUT of the stomach. but yeah eating organ meats mixed up with oats isn't THAT bad.. eating -lungs- seems a little odd, you don't imagine those having any sort of digestible meat, just a lot of thin, balloony tissue. I've had ground beef that includes heart before, it tastes fucking wretched but it's still food.
>>9558328I meant, I think the anon was saying "being SUPER into the sound of your own voice" = "being up your own ass / enjoying the smell of your own farts" = "enjoying eating your own haggis"
>>9558182No, the whole reason I hate goanon is because he's a loser with a god-complex who needs to be taken down a few rungs. I will take every shot at him I am given.
>>9557919I kind of liked Offroad and Rook as toys, but I do think remakes of classic G1 combiner teams should keep to the original members, with their original looks and alt-modes. Just creating an entire new team would probably be a better idea than having new or alternate members for existing groups. And that Aerialbot helicopter was a bad idea for not even fitting the group's theme of being planes.
>>9558390The extras ended up on Galvatronus for me, although he's not combined at the moment.
>>9558390They're a neat concept but "we used these extra molds but colored them like the existing guy" ultimately cheapened the idea in the end. It attempted to please everybody and nobody at the same time. About the only one that wound up successful of the lot was Rook, and that's probably out of the strength of his toy being damn good. Worst was the chopper not just because of the theme not matching, but because he literally is just "placeholder Slingshot".
>>9558154sometimes i wonder if prowl and soundwave were meant to be the faction leaders considering how the logos are based on their faces
>>9558430Soundwave, yes, Prowl, I don't know. I guess an in universe reason would be that they're example Autobots and Decepticons respectively?
Remember to mock the people outting themselves as autists in Mccuck’s latest video, then shame him for hating autistics.
>>9557478the fossilizers are inspired yes, but they're all non-characters and basically accessory packs. they're even advertised as such on the real toys people recogniseBH remolded the big name characters and pretty confidently went in a wild (heh) directionthey're like reverse fuzors, it's the regular design but gone a bit feralunfortunately collectors only want the exact same boring boxy shit again and again so BH tanked>>9557508i wonder if warden had any hand in that, he loves roadbuster>>9557558not every design is great but the colour palettes are certainly more varied and refreshing thatn thier regular PRID counterparts. arcee is no longer all blue with a tiny pink accent, blue's the minorityalso the marbling effect is cool, a better choice than siege's battle damage paint on top. they could have pushed it a little further though as it's usually only in one spot so it seems out of place
>>9558436considering that prowl's a police car it wouldn't surprise me if they were considering him as the main "good guy" early in productionwe also know they were using prowl's design as far back as the car and cable pitch (pic related) so it could also be that prowl and soundwave were just the first toys they happened to have on hand when designing faction symbols
>>9557558>>9557582Pretty sure that's a typo. In-context, it seems they intended to write 'SOUL'. Still agree that Beast Hunters (and Prime in general) was ugly as fuck.
Medical SeekerWhat should his personality be?
>>9558453beast hunters tanked because people weren't really interested in getting the same characters with wild new colors and accessories like this was the kenner Batman line or the old gargoyles toyline.. they wanted the cool beast things, but they were hugely disappointing despite being approximately cool. bad transformations, ugly kibble, all too samey..
>>9558457what the fuck were they going to do with that Herbie-ass motherfucker>>9558471timid and overly careful
>>9558477>Herbie-ass motherfuckerGoing by its claw, thats og gobot bugbite.
>>9558477Maybe he should get angry quickly when the other Decepticons suggest he's a coward because he's a medic and not a warrior. That's why he's always breaking out the sword.
>>9558474it was good for people like me who were put off the regular prime designs which were very bland visuallyironically hasbro got away with the reverse with siege and earthrise recently, tweak the design they want juuust enough so they'll treat it as subline or separate thing, then release the molds we all wanted the whole time
>>9558350Hmmm... I mean, I know I've had Korean blood sausage, but I don't know if>generally made by steaming cow or pig's intestines stuffed with various ingredientsYeah idk if sheep is tougher..? Sundae (soon-deh) was fine though, good with salt.>lungsNever had lungs before, woah..>heartHad chicken heart but not sure if I've noticably had other ones..>>9558352Ahhhh gotcha, was dizzy and thought we were talking about Tranmutate.>>9558460Excuse me, I'm the one with the medical degree in aircraft, buster, I think I'd know more about SOVLs than you
>>9558154>It's mental to me that someone looked at that toy and thoughtboth he and Prime were the most expensive toys so they were made the leaders. In some very early Brit fiction the Autobot Leader was Jetfire for the same reason
>>9558151>claims he doesn't want to hear about politics>decides to write a crybaby post and bring it herekys
>>9558154Soundwave being leader would have solved so many headaches as the franchise went on. On the other hand, as someone else pointed out, Megatron was the most expensive first year Decepticon, had the longest alt mode by far thanks to the accessories, and does turn into a gun, which is far more villainous than a recorder. The absolute truth though is Starscream should have been leader, only reason he couldn't be was because his toy was the designated army builder.
>>9558484so.. they were going to rope that in?>>9558506gun robo was more expensive than cassette man?>>9558509there's a difference between "and now engage with me on this topic" and "isn't it fucking frustrating how this stuff comes up?"
>>9558518>there's a difference between "and now engage with me on this topic" and "isn't it fucking frustrating how this stuff comes up?"neither of them are on topic fagtard. Commit suicide.
>>9558509He's also making it up. None of what he said is true. Probably crack-induced or something, or Fox News told him it was real. Their kind aren't known fr being factual.
>>9558518>gun robo was more expensive than cassette man?Megatron has the silencer and stock.
>>9558289So I'm allowed to have attractive characters as long as they are literally retarded?
>>9558471He's the Decepticons' version of Venom Snake - when Starscream goes MIA, he gets shadowplay'd into becoming just like him, and gets his face swapped out to look like him. His left arm is a rocket, and he has a habit of engaging Autobots in CQC, knocking them into Stasis Lock, then Fultoning them off to HQ where they get reprogrammed with Decepticon shell programs. Also has a fondness for hiding in cargo boxes.
>>9558518>gun robo was more expensive than cassette man?Yeah, Cassette man have more die cast and a bigger robot mode, but Gun robo U.N.CL.E. has an absolute fuck load of accesories. Enough to make a giant turret, actually.
>>9558471Twerking tik tok nurse
>>9557857Why would the Cyberjets be Voyagers? At most Deluxes, they were meant to be the equivalent of Minibots.
>>9558527oh right. still though, was soundwave at least close to the same price?
>>9558509>>9558520You are replying to a 4 hour post everyone moved on from. And you clearly agree with him because seeing politics has you seething.
>>9558534yeah plus the cassettes were sold separately, weren't they
>>9558549indeed. I see this happening all the timebut he does have a point about it being slightly off-topic. I look forward to the day when the state of transformers is that this shit is -completely- off-topic.
>>9558550Buzzsaw came with Soundwave, and I think the others were sold in 2-packs. Because Buzzsaw was packed in with Soundwave they literally had a note in the series bible saying to use him sparingly because he didn't need to be advertised.
>>9558506>In some very early Brit fiction the Autobot Leader was Jetfire for the same reasonI've never heard of this.
>>9558555We were all talking about Transmutate. You guys bitching about us are only crying over us. Sneed harder.
>>9558540Because it'd be cooler, that's why.
>>9558560https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Jetfire_(G1)#Notes>When Hasbro launched the Transformers line on the European continent using the domestic subsidiaries of Milton Bradley in 1985, Optimus Prime was notably absent from the initial line-up and Jetfire was declared leader of the Autobots instead. He not only appeared in that function in a pack-in mini-comic, but Dutch comic book publisher Junior Press even changed Optimus Prime's name to "Jetfire" in their translated version of the Marvel Transformers comic until the Optimus Prime toy was released in Europe after all, and Junior Press corrected the name for subsequent issues. A commonly cited explanation for this is a trademark problem, but a more likely theory suggests that an exclusive contract between Takara and French toy company Joustra, which allowed Joustra to release their own version of Takara's Diaclone line in Europe, initially made all the toys released by Joustra (which included the Optimus Prime sculpt) off-limits for the MB line-up until a deal was made between MB and Joustra.
Primebros, how can we compete with Chadfire, the true Autobot leader?
>>9558565Jetfire is a dork, Bumblebee could beat him up.
>>9558565Only one man to call.
>>9558557kehehe. it's so stupid thinking about how blunt and straightforward they were with that junk, instead of working harder at creating an engaging story and scenarios kids will want to recreate in play, and accepting that shit is just going to sell if it's going to sell. hard not to objectively say toy-commercial-shows were better in the 90s, where they tossed any thought of that out, and just made shit as fun as possible because toys = fun.
>>9558571I mean, all the Ultra classes DID appear in the BW cartoon.
>>9558571From the final page of the story bible, after giving some stock plot scenarios for potential writers:>We realize these are only springboards (and can serve to supplement the usable story ideas in the network presentation). Further story development depends on the direction of the series concept. In any case, we fell *action* should be emphasized over *plot* -- especially avoiding any complicated story line -- to ensure the success of this series with its intended viewers.
>>9558574not saying it never happened, but you know. less obtrusive.>>9558576jesus.
>>9558590>not saying it never happened, but you know. less obtrusive.Of course.
>>9558595though now that you mention it, I'm reminded of how Tigerhawk was added with the belief he'd be getting a toy, but then they were unsure he would, they killed him off quickly.. only for the toy to come out after all, and turn out awesome. but everyone wanted it regardless because he was cool in the show, and.. the show was fucking ending soon so there wasn't exactly much more for him to do. megatron couldn't stand up to that power level
>>9558574>I mean, all the Ultra classes DID appear in the BW cartoon.Magnaboss didnt.
>>9558529I love it >Now do you remember? Who you are? What you were meant to do? I cheated death, thanks to you. And thanks to you I've left my mark. You have too - you've written your own history. You're your own man. I'm Starscream, and you are too... No... He's the two of us. Together. Where we are today? We built it. This story - this "legend" - it's ours. We can change the world - and with it, the future. I am you, and you are me. Carry that with you, wherever you go. Thank you... my friend. From here on out, you're Starscream.
>>9558598>megatron couldn't stand up to that power levelBut the Fusion Cannons can, HA!>>9558603Fuck, I forgot about the 1987 Ultras.
Y'all still like PCCs? I do.
>>9558621partially carbonated cars?
>>9558621A lot of them have really cool designs but they either had really brittle hard plastic or I just got really unlucky because almost all of them had a mushroom joint shatter on me :(I really need to get another Sledge he was such a fun little goon
Transformers Generations Thrilling 30s BrainstormWhen Hasbro had their brief foray into comic style toys.Brainstorm appears as he always does, a light blue spaceship with a couple guns up front. Only now he's jacked up to voyager size.He's got a little pilot that can sit inside the cockpit.He's just a bit different than most headmasters, his arms are the sides of the head separated as panels. He comes off a bit skinny than typical.He's got very limited posability, ball joint shoulders that only rotate, a limited ball neck and knees that only bend the wrong way.Also he hasn't got a name.Was Brainstorm even a headmaster in the comics? I can't remember.>>9558621I know I have some of those coming up.
>>9558603Technically 2/3rds of him did, with Ironhide and Prowl showing up in the Ark scene of Agenda. It doesn't really count of course. Hasbro even told them not to include the individual names of the Tripredacus characters due to the models not matching the toys. They were all named in the script.
>>9558638that looks fucking cool. Never seen or hearda this guy before. if he comes out again I'm gonna be like BUY ME BRAINSTORM OR GO TO HELL
>>9558645 I should put it and some other old toys in BST but damn I'm lazy
>>9558638>>9558645He's great, somehow I ended up with two only the second's headmaster is missing an arm sadly. I didn't even try for TR Brainstorm, was he any good? I was happy enough with T30 to not even bother looking.
>>9558645You've never heard of Brainstorm? How new to Transformers are you? I don't mean to offend, there's been a few Brainstorms in recent years, even a reissue a year or two ago.
>3rd party sellers get Black Zarak before Hasbro Pulse pre-orders
>>9558649i'm that guy that only knows beast wars and on, and some stuff from the wiki and some other random shit.if it's from a recent line that isn't animal-based, I probably ignored it.pretty much everything since Prime ended has felt lame to me, in terms of the TV stuff.
>>9558638>jacked up to voyager sizeWeren't the original Headmasters Voyager sized?>Also he hasn't got a name.Arcana
>>9558654You can't really measure G1 toys by modern size classes.
>>9558638Zero points for guessing how the transformation works. He just stands up.Brainstorm has never been complicated. Huge points to the back of the seat folding down into a SPDSTRINT panel.Robot mode keeps the dynamic angles and swooshy lines of the vehicle . Which isn't saying much given how similar they are.I think this is a good representation of Brainstorm's on-page appearance but it has been many moons since I've seen it.I am a big fan of the blue, and the two tone grey and little bits of red really sell it.>>9558648>missing an armFor some reason I want to say that's somewhat common.>>9558649To be fair, Brainstorm's only had like three toys in 33 years. And for new newcomers headmasters can be a niche interest.>>9558654>Weren't the original Headmasters Voyager sized?I'd love to own some G1 headmasters to be able to tell you but I doubt they're this tall. Probably heftier though, this Brainstorm is a bit on the light side. Barely heavier than a modern voyager.>ArcanaDoesn't say that anywhere on my instruction sheet :^)
>>9558658i seriously fucking like this guy.. did he ever get like a repaint? I really want one that looks like an arwing or Swordfish
>>9558657He's pretty much modern Voyager class.>>9558658>Doesn't say that anywhere on my instruction sheet :^)And KD Dinobot is labelled as a Predacon, but only weirdos display him next to the Predacons.>I'd love to own some G1 headmastersSame, it'd be nice if they reissued them.>but I doubt they're this tallBrainstorm and Highbrow aren't, but Hardhead and Chromedome likely are.
>>9558638>Also he hasn't got a name.Arcana is the buddy, who was one of the oldest Nebulans, a medical guy and scientist who looked into some of the older rejected sciences and used that to make the terror that is the headmasters.>Was Brainstorm even a headmaster in the comics? I can't remember.Nope, they never got around to it, he was already a regular guy in MTMTE. They did say that Chromedome, Brainstorm, and Highbrow were named as that in the Institute (some terrifying government secrety science place) for uhhh, being smart? Hardhead's head is unironically hard, he was no scientist though.>>9558649His only big appearances were in Headmasters and MTMTE.
>>9558658If I remember right comic Brainstorm's personality was basically "What if the writer's tried to one-up Wheeljack in everyway?"Which is to say he was a silly science man. Who may have also done some double agenting?Even he if was a very silly science man Brainstorm still looks good rocking his iconic double long barrel hand guns.And he can wield them pretty effectively given his amount of articulation.Rotatey shoulders with quiet ratchets for outward movement. Biceps swivels and double elbows.Now wrist rotation but can flex inwards a bit if that's what you're into. Not too far given there's a snazzy panel covering what would otherwise big a big forearm gap. Not that HasTak would ever let a toy through with that design oversight.Legs can kick forward and back pretty unhindered. The skirt armor makes an effort to move but it does stop the leg from going straight out so the loud ass ratchets stop at about 60 degrees.Swively thighs, bending knees and just the tiniest amount of ankle tilt.Oh and a neck joint. which headmasters weren't known for having.>>9558668>he ever get like a repaint?Not to my knowledge, just slightly different shades of blue depending which side of the Pacific you were on.>>9558673>it'd be nice if they reissued them.>mfw the "retro headmaster" reissues weren't retro at all.
>Nebulans Japanese G1 is the superior Headmasters concept
>>9558682>terror that is the headmastersHeadmaster technology is perfectly natural and does not lead to loss of identity, brain damage, foreign invasive thoughts, suicidal thoughts, homicidal tendencies, sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism, thoughts of Unicronian worship, sympathies to aliens, clinical depression, increased libido, decreased libido, sterility, colon cancer, throat cancer, dementia, irreparable insanity or autism.Enlist for binary-bonding today!
>>9558692Nobody cares about japan
>>9558682>he was already a regular guy in MTMTESeveral mistakes were made during mtmte.Several.
>>9558691>mfw the "retro headmaster" reissues weren't retro at all.Yeah.>>9558693>Headmaster technology is perfectly natural and does not lead to loss of identity, brain damage, foreign invasive thoughts, suicidal thoughts, homicidal tendencies, sociopathy, psychopathy, narcissism, thoughts of Unicronian worship, sympathies to aliens, clinical depression, increased libido, decreased libido, sterility, colon cancer, throat cancer, dementia, irreparable insanity or autism.>I AM ONE WITH SCORPONOK>>9558695Nobody cares about you.
>>9558693AhahahahahahahaI'm pretty sure 90% of these are things that have already happened in bios and media...>>9558692The transector stuff makes sense in every way, but it's REALLY nice when two completely unrelated randos just mesh really well and help each other grow as people (but not to the point where they become the same person, what the fuck)>>9558696>Several mistakes were made during mtmte.>Several.Early run was good, but them not doing headmaster stuff early on (other than poor Sunstreaker) meant the concept was open for them to use later in the gayest way possible.>>9558698>>I AM ONE WITH SCORPONOKFear
>>9558691And that's the first week from the CHUG bin.Much more voyager heavy that I would have guessed.
>>9558696oh right, more than meets the eyefor a second i was like 'master the master the egg?'
>>9558698>>9558700Being a Headmaster has gotta be either the coolest thing ever or the worst thing ever.>Hey, robo buddy you good with us splitting for the night so I can have my date?>Sure anon, but you must know our telepathic link will keep us connected>What?>Our bond is greater than physical anon, we are one>So when I’m railing my gf tonight…….>I’ll be there anon, in your head, we will be railing her, together>Robo buddy?….>Yes anon?>You’re my best friend>You are mine too anon, now go to your date I’m curious what sex feels like
>>9558701larger objects naturally float to the top as smaller ones settle to the bottom.
>>9558712if i was to remake the concept.. well, actually, i love how Animated did it, but that hardly countsI'd make it like that Aladdin episode where that dude split the head and body of people and it made the head ultra logical and the body all emotional and somehow able to still see and hear
>>9558713>tfw your binned collection forms geologic stratumI need more shelves, and walls.
>>9558716I imagine it like Venom, two minds one body with a shared headspace. Meaning that even when separated they are still linked.>anon, I’ve been through your memories, your thoughts, your dreams…….>and?>you have a fixation on “mommy milkers”>yeah I like MILF stuff, what of it?>I am beginning to find that *I* like it too.>oh?>I am millions of years old, I have known constant war. You are twenty four and have known war for one month, yet your perversion has influenced my mind.>so?>get in my sports car mode anon, we’re going to the tinder hookup I set for you>I don’t wanna >Get in >no >anon….. you do not have a choice, we are one and I desire tail
>>9558700>Early run was good, but them not doing headmaster stuff early on (other than poor Sunstreaker) meant the concept was open for them to use later in the gayest way possible.Yeah. There was potential, but then they started to appeal to the Tumblr crowd.
>>9558726Remember when the Dinobots and Monsterbots ate Sunstreaker clones with the pilots still linked to the transtector?Maximum Dinobots was great
Fangry's probs one of the top "holy shit nebulan you're gonna die" pairings. Siren's another one where you feel bad for the partner>>9558712>Being a Headmaster has gotta be either the coolest thing ever or the worst thing ever.>that entire storyA bit terrifying. So is sex but that's tangential.>Robo buddy?….>Yes anon?>You’re my best friend>You are mine too anonBut this is kinda sweet ahaha>>9558726>There was potential, but then they started to appeal to the Tumblr crowd.Definitely, the mysteries were great and so were some of the new characterizations. His Eugenesis work during his fanfic days for the Marvel UK continuity was top tier. But uh, with the success of MTMTE he literally listened to the twitter/tumblr crowd. I'm not saying this to bring up politics, I'm saying that's literally what happened with his twitter account, sometimes people near-forcing him to answer the way they want to.>tfw did that accidentally once, when hopefully asking whether during Getaway's (I was hopin not painful but he already said yes) death, whether he was happy/at peace>"one could posit that before his consciousness succumbed to the immense pain, his last conscious moments were peaceful"Whew. Sorry, Jro..>>9558731Holy shit..
>>9558733I remember from BW: Uprising an actually clever line where Cerebros off-handily mentions being “bonded to three successive generations of Witwickys.”This is the succession of Fortress Maximus within the Uprising universe >Spike Witwicky, married Carly>>Daniel Witwicky, married Llyra Zarak >>>Galen Witwicky, partner unknown Imagine growing up knowing that your will inevitably replace your father as an integral component of another person.
>>9558724>reading my mindthis is how kiss players happened.
>>9558712Kek, but what if in this scenario, Cybertronians actually can have sex?>>9558724Exactly.
>>9558731This is awesome.
>>9558744You asked for it>Hey robo-buddy?>Yes anon.>Those Cybertronian ladies…… you guys got hookers?>I’m sure there are some femmes with loose morals in the…… bad districts>Cool, let’s go through the spacebridge and fuck some sluts>anon…….>Look man, we are a kickass team, united we are indestructible, unstoppable and immortal!>You are still very mortal anon >All the more reason to fuck some cybersluts.>No>We share this mind and body, If you don’t want to I will exert control and take us there>You wouldn’t.>I would, you can come with me or I’m gonna make you cum
>>9558733yeah the polarizing effect of that kinda internet stuff really sucks. the more reasonable people just don't have a voice, but everyone else does. in a normal real life situation, you'd listen to the people around you at least a little, but they would also be able to shut each other up in a way you can't do online.
Thunderwing really fucked everyone over, didn't he?
>>9558741that'd be cool actually.
Hey anyone in canada for some reason paleotrex and this guy are really cheap right now for some reason. Not the third guy though.
>>9558760Now, what if the Robo-buddy has a GF?
Can someone tell me what Rung is? I want to buy his toy because it looks cool but I know nothing about the character and tfwiki has no tldr.
>>9558778Toy's a laser gun because play value.
>>9558775What if Robo-buddy has a GF, but Anon's already married?
>>9558775They have the same discussion that Spike, Carly and Fortress Maximus had to have.
>>9558701Do you have anymore weird assed non Transformer transformers?
>>9557647Why not both?
>>9558782Everyone's in a pickle unless Robo-GF and Wife become headmasters.
>>9558789As weird as Gigano Dragon? Maybe not.But this bin definitely isn't 100% Transformers.
>>9558799>Anon's wife becomes a Headmaster for a random (male) bot>Robo-buddy's GF partners with another human>Both Anon and Robo-buddy weep
>>9558802Thats not what I intended to happen.
>>9558802>the troll in the assignment bureau who deliberately mismatched the couples trying to have a binary-bonded foursome >I’m gonna assign the human female to the black repaint >I’m gonna assign the Cybertronian female to the human gigachad>laughs his ass off
>>9558741What in the world- k I don't remember who Llyra>Llyra is the kind-hearted daughter of Nebulan politician Lord Zarak. Her hatred of war is dismissed by Lord Zarak as youthful idealism, which is why she dislikes her war-hungry father and has fallen in love with the seemingly peace-loving Galen, to whom she is betrothed.>peace-loving Galen, to whom she is betrothed.>>Daniel Witwicky, married Llyra Zarak???>Imagine growing up knowing that your will inevitably replace your father as an integral component of another person.That seems partly cool for the start of super robot, but then becomes Eva-tier scary.>learning about your father's fears and traumas or maybe a horrible truth>having to learn to retain your identity instead of becoming your father or this robot>>9558760>I would, you can come with me or I’m gonna make you cumW-woah>>9558761Writers should literally be isolated the same way people are for jury duty, except they get to talk to family and coworkers I guess. Don't listen to your fans, some are intelligent but some are vocal and worth ignoring.>>9558773Is he worth getting...?>>9558778Very cute guy, he's a psychiatrist and his altmode is whatever you want it to be. Maybe don't read his article. He has waist rotation and is very fun.>>9558812Geez
I'm kind of surprised that the Beast era never featured a mermaid transformer triple changer that would go from Robot mode to mermaid mode to full fish mode.Or for comedy sake, make her a quad changer and have half fish mode (legs but fish face like a sharkticon with bayonetta legs)
>>9558812Which Transformer did this?
>>9558813>Is he worth getting...?I always wanted him to complete the trio so I hope so. Paleotrex is worth it and he's 58% off too might be fun for army building too.
>>9558820I always wanted mythical animals after TM2 dragon megs introduced the idea.
>>9558813There was no Galen (Nebulan) in Uprising but he was referenced with Galen Witwicky, Daniel and Llyra’s son. Also the final human partner to Fortress Maximus.All Witwickys did learn their father’s secrets after bonding with Max and it was Cerebros who started to lose his identity after bonding with three generations and outliving them. This actually let them kill Scorponok by using his Zarak’s love for his daughter against him. Destroying the leviathan during the Scouring of Nebulos.Cerebros became a chessmaster of sorts, might be because he “died” three times and outlived his “sons.”
>>9558821This guy, he may look harmless but he’s actually a hardened shitposter and took vicious glee in cucking anon and Robo-buddy. He loves Earth if only for the endless trolling opportunities it affords.
>>9558834Hubcap never had his full bio published but here it is:>Profile: Hub Cap has everybody's friendship but nobody's trust. He is affable, witty, generous, even charming -- it is no wonder that his fellow Autobots find him such pleasant company. But he's also a con artist. He is likely to enthusiastically accept some work detail one moment and then try to sucker someone else into doing it the next. Or he might try to smooth talk a comrade into trading his weapon for an inferior one. Hub Cap is surprisingly effective at his scams. Perhaps it's the smiling, sincere way he talks or perhaps it's because he looks small and unthreatening. Whatever the case, Hub Cap is living proof of the old Cybertronian adage, "You can't tell an Autobot by it's finish.">Abilities: Not only is Hub Cap adept at speaking, he's even better at listening. Equipment within his head module allows him to receive a broad spectrum of electromagnetic signals -- AM and FM radio, shortwave, UHF and VHF television broadcasts. He uses his phosphorescent windshield as a television screen when receiving TV signals. Amplifying circuits allow him to detect signals as weak as .000001 watts. His audio circuitry can hear a pin drop 500 yards away, and has a frequency range of 5 to 50,000 Hertz. In car mode, he can travel up to 90 mph and has a range of 1000 miles.>Weaknesses: Hub Cap is physically among the weakest of the Autobots. Even low-speed crashes can result in severe damage to his body.
>>9558822Oh. Paleotrex and Wingfinger are BOTH $14 CAD. Ractonite is $40 though, because go fuck you'reself!!!!!!!https://www.amazon.ca/Transformers-Toys-Generations-War-Cybertron/dp/B08P3S6T9Z/https://www.amazon.ca/Transformers-Toys-Generations-War-Cybertron/dp/B08HGZ6BRZ/I didn't like Six-homo and the not-eye aka nasal cavity holes for the dinos are a bit scary. But I do want knights. Can I exchange and return these for two deluxes if I hate them...? But I don't know what's in shelves atm, might be complete garbage. What to do...I just know for a fact that by the time I decide, they would have gone back up in price.>>9558824Ahhh, interesting...>started to lose his identity after bonding with three generations and outliving themThe fuck? Wait, was Fort a good guy or a bad Builder->let them kill Scorponok by using his Zarak’s love for his daughter against him. Destroying the leviathan during the Scouring of Nebulos.A-aaaaa...>Cerebros became a chessmaster of sorts, might be because he “died” three times and outlived his “sons.”I hate creepiness (like Trypticon being killed from the inside of his brain) and faves dying horribly, but I can also sort of turn my brain off and embrace the horror, since it's its own continuity...>>9558834Honestly, I'm a softie that tries to see the best in people and bots or whatever, but this fucker is legitimately- I hope people enjoy his toy but give him a better bio, because fuck this guy in all honesty, what an antagonistically useless fuck.>because it reminds you of yourself?N-no
>>9558842See there’s a reason why they don’t trust him. Deep down they know that he says the n-word online and messes with WingsofRedemption.Canon>>9558843Hubcap is Goanon, A TF trolls the Transformers General.
>>9558820there is a total logic to that. it'd be like an inverted transmetal with the robot mode getting the half-assed vehicle mode
>>9558842Where's this from? It'd be conveientint to read these and not have to dig through images. Thought he was just inept but somewhere else, he was straight up just a con-artist, huh...>>9558844>Hubcap is Goanon, A TF trolls the Transformers General.>nominally has the job of asking about things (in dead thread) or posting photos (that we can recognize)>real job is that he's a spy sent by actual Unicron who exists in our worldI know he owns the mold, he made a custom with a little siren on its chest/rooftop. I admire him a bit for working on making custom TFs and figmas, that takes courage. Everything from his hobbies to his garden makes me want to be his friend, if it weren't for his behaviour.On topic though, I wanted RTS Hubcap since a kid, but passed on it a few years ago for some reason. Being an adult with responsible Siege purchases probably. I shoulda gotten him, $10-15 CAD was fair..
>>9558823fuzors kind of started the idea. i always had this self-insert character who was a lion version of tigerhawk's layout basically. my favorite variant on griffins.
>>9558823We had unicorn in Beast Machines and a Cerberus in RID who was designed for Beast Machines.
>>9558855Ah, an invaluable resource, thank you.
>>9558856It reveals some neat stuff, for an example how it turns out Starscream and Whirl have different "Null ray" equipment: Starscream's null rays paralyze robots, while Whirl's is LITERALLY a device to null rays.
>>9558859Sorry, what happens when you uh, null a ray..>hand-mounted null-ray module that shields him from any energy beam directed at himSo uhhh a shield...? Hmmm
>>9558902>every country has "magick" hourkek>>9558900nein,nyet, no, nie
>>9558905It's always a happy time somewhere.>>9557722Ah I'm sorry, I never responded...>stupid when some Decepticon or Autobot just becomes a MercenaryMe too->supposed to be the Decepticon equivalent of Wheeljack(+Smoking), their supposed to be enemies.Then yeah, Exhaust should be a Decepticon.>He's an Autobot spy.So are you!>I thought the Cybertron Empire was just another Military faction.They are, but then what did you mean by Legion?>Probably so.Lame!!
I wish we had ancient Egyptian themed transformers
>>9558965Mythology line could be neat>Egypt - Spinx>Greece - Hydra>Norway - Troll>Aztec - QuetzalcoatlAnd so on
>>9558965Are there even any? ROTF The Fallen?
>two tests passed>score from one allows me to avoid exam>serpent and her simp are btfo'ed and are autistic screaming>more time to shitpost and take photosSuch a nice sunday anons.
>>9559011Some architecture-based ones would be rad too. They could do a pyramid, some columns, a temple, both European and Japanese castles, the leaning tower. Robot modes could be textured like stone statues, with designs based on their respective time periods, maybe even some wooden guys that turn into various ships. I reckon they’d be a great companion to the fossilisers.
>>9559154>Some architecture-based ones would be rad too.As weaponizers/and whatever they were called in earthrise that would be great.
>>9558965Not a lot of altmodes to work with, you've got chariot and that's about it. Maybe a royal litter, carried by minicons or something?
>>9558900Kill yourself>>9558914>So are you!I'm a Pretender!>They are, but then what did you mean by Legion?I... Don't know.>>9559024I heard someone say a G1-ized ROTF The Fallen would be cool, but I'd rather just have the WW design.
>>9558517Nice try screamer.
>>9559024Mirage's Helmet always reminds me of a nemes
>>9559242>G1-ized ROTF The FallenSo basically Machinima's Megatronus.
>>9559259That's one of the shittiest designs for him
>>9559259In my experience, I've found that any version of The Fallen that is referred to as Megatronus, have fucking awful designs.
>>9558773Thanks for the heads up
Post some toys that scare greasy youtubers
>>9559502Nobody gives a shit about your personal war against some youtuber.
>>9559011two of those would be pretty hard to make into a satisfying robot mode but yeah! more cool monsters forever.
>>9559502some of us have a lot of skin oil.. it helps when it's dry, and keeps our hair nice and shiny.

I'm sure he's German, because writers are clever.It's just that since he has Ironhide's bruiser body he looks like he cares alot more about taking bots apart than putting them together.
>>9559670>what is SG Ratchet likeEnthusiastic fellow who likes to make his patients/victims more "interesting" by adding random bits of machinery to them. He honestly believes he's doing them a favour.>I'm sure he's German, because writers are clevernah that's SG Blaster
>>9559670>>9559679We also don't know much about the new Ratchet, he's different but we don't know how since there's not much to go on from his brief appearance, but he's still likely working with Prime since he's the most likely candidate to be his spy.
>>9559717>We also don't know much about the new RatchetHe's sort of the same, but less crazy. He went crazy during the war and is trying to create an unkillable breed of Autobot by torturously combining parts from dead Decepticons on living test subjects. He calls them his "patients".And IDW SG Blaster isn't german. He's just normal Blaster but evil.
>>9559725>He's just normal Blaster but evil.Is he still cool? I feel like a lot of these mirror universe stories just change characters entirely and they don't really act at all similar to their original selves, which I think would be more interesting.Imagine if Goldbug was still lighthearted and friendly and made jokes, but he has zero empathy and is as nasty as the worst of us, showing no mercy, and prolonging the deaths of his enemies as he makes light hearted jokes at their expense, before he kills them.
When is the inevitable Generations Selects Toxitron?
>>9559730He's literally just Blaster but evil. I guess he's supposed to sound like some wannabe gangbanger but I'd need to see how the writer writes mainline Blaster to be sure.
>>9559742That's not too bad, I remember some of the FP versions being unbearable, like Ravage.>>9559738Would you really want it?
>>9559749>being unbearable, like RavageDon't worry, they changed him too
>>9559679Hey, would you look at that. Now he's got his classic sawhand. Wait. If Optimus has the Axe, Rodimus has the saw, and Megatron has the mace, what the fuck should Galvatron have? A gun like Megaman?>>9559730It's interesting.>Funpub: Thief Seeker Commander(?)>IDW: Manlet Mobster>Anon: Friendly sadist>>9559755You guys prefer this SG Soundwave or Cowabungawave?
>>9559824>what the fuck should Galvatron have? A gun like Megaman?He's been shown with a normal axe in the first idw continuity
>>9559670fuckin email, that's unusual.>>9559755he's the one that's waving>tryna tawriter confirmed for not understanding how that dialect works.
>>9559832>that art>in their own lore, that's galvatron and his brotheramazing
>>9559824>what the fuck should Galvatron haveIf we're talking SG, he's got a hook and a big ass rotor>>9559832Good fucking god I forgot about that comic's art. Look at Galvy's little chode cannon
>>9559837>Doesn't like posing with his postop trans twin grinding against his leg.Ishigitidy.
>>9559842I always liked the look of that figure, especially the Universe Blades repaint, does any here own it? is it any good?
>>9559852I had it as Springer for a long time, only replacing it with T30. He was pretty cool, the winch is neat and working rotors are always welcome.
Posting a few polls, I'll be making them for all Commanders since I'm curious how many people here got them and how much they paid for them:Sky Lynx:https://www.strawpoll.me/45929508Rodimus:https://www.strawpoll.me/45929497Jetfire:https://www.strawpoll.me/45929507Will probably repost in the next thread.
>>9559824>You guys prefer this SG Soundwave or Cowabungawave?They're fundamentally the same character, compared to how different IDW made other SG characters. Old Soundwave was more tongue-in-cheek, which wouldn't really work in IDW's version of the story anyway.
>>9559852I have the Blades version. It's one of the best molds from Cybertron, a good fun vehicle with functional gimicks all around. His only real flaw is that the chopper has a few gaps in it when viewed side on.
>>9559842Actually a hook on a chain would be a really cool weapon and sortof a natural progression of the mace.>Good fucking god I forgot about that comic's art. Look at Galvy's little chode cannonIt is quite terrible.>>9559871Results aren't working for me. I missed out on Jetfire but wish I got him, Skylynx is cool, but I guess he judt didn't catch my eye or something, and I got Commander Rodimus.
>check on my T30 Chromia>one of the little wing pieces breaks off as soon as I touch itFUCK
>>9559992Yeah, I'll probably do another set of polls in a new thread. Guess I'll stop using Strawpoll, something always goes wrong with them.
>>9560017Shouldn't have hamhanded it then you fucking bitch.
So, uh, if I wanted a physical copy/copies of the complete series of the Marvel G1 comics, what would be the cheapest solution? I'd ask in /co/, but there's no Transformer thread in there right now, and I don't think this question warrants an entire thread.
>mods deleted goanon's newest threadYay.>they also deleted all mentions of him in his other thread and deleted the posts showing his schizo behaviourHaha.>>9560083IDW reprinted them in trades like 9 years ago now and you basically have a choice between paying exorbant prices for those or tracking down the old floppies.
>>9560105>IDW reprinted them in trades like 9 years ago now and you basically have a choice between paying exorbant prices for those or tracking down the old floppies.FUCK.
>>9560105>DW reprinted them in trades like 9 years ago now and you basically have a choice between paying exorbant prices for those or tracking down the old floppies.What? I bought a few a years ago that can't be that ba- Oh sweet Primus
>>9560108Yeah I know the feeling anon. I collect alot of british and euro comics myself and there's usually no other choice than single english release that came out 12 years ago or original floppies/magazine release in french or something. I'm personally hoping that with IDW most likely losing the license and therefore the backlog of other comics in the next year, whoever picks it up will realize how well the Marvel stuff would sell. Especially with the throwback stuff like 84 selling so well compared to the actual mainline stuff.
>>9560114>whoever picks it up will realize how well the Marvel stuff would sell.God, I hope so.
>>9560126IDW's TF offerings since like 2016 have been nosediving in readship, while the older stuff like MTMTE, LSotW, AHM, etc still gets reprinted and is still selling. If Skybound does get the license, I refuse to believe that they'll be dumb enough to leave that shit on the table for the rest of time. Even IDW reprinted War Within a few years after Dreamwave shut down because it was the only thing of value from that company.
>>9560132>I refuse to believe that they'll be dumb enough to leave that shit on the table for the rest of time.Let's hope so. I also hope that their new offerings will be better than IDW's have been for the past decade or so.
>>9560150I don't think it's possible to be worse than IDW's output since Dark Cybertron, honestly. There's writing badly and then there's writing with spite and Roberts was 100% writing with spite by the end. I'm just hoping that Skybound is the company to get it, purely because they're most likely to just hire Furman to write it from page one and hire Guidi or Milne or Collier again.
>>9560162>purely because they're most likely to just hire Furman to write it from page one and hire Guidi or Milne or Collier again.Nice. Did Furman come up with "female Transformers can't just be a thing"?
>>9560172Yes, and considering what the tumblr fandom and the writers trying to appeal to them did with the concept, I have a feeling that gender as a whole will be thrown out. At least it would be nice to not have to deal with gender issues in a comic about fighting robots.
>>9560195Cool, but can we at least still have fembots?
>>9560203I hope so, I just don't want current year politics in my transformers comics. I just want more Wreckers with a team that isn't shit and more cool stuff like early IDW bringing in euroG1 and G2 character literal whos on both sides. Maybe good OCs like Turmoil too.
>>9560213Yeah. It'd also be nice if the G1.5-G2 guys didn't die immediately.
>>9560213I want 50s politics in my transformers comics. Arcee should be smarting off and whining that Optimus never lets her go on missions. and then finally she does, and makes a fool of herself
>>9560241The irritating thing is I think that schizo battle bitch Arcee was cool and based, just when they made it into what they did that it became unbearable. Like a character that is horrifically vivisected and rebuilt against their will that goes insane with vengeance? That's sick. No fucking clue why Roberts and co thought that it'd be a cool idea to hand wave a justification for others to see that and ape it, especially trying to imply that all it takes is seeing the concept of gender to instantly make people trans. Like I know the joke is that white british virtue signalling types don't understand how fucking offensive their attempts at being good allies are, but IDW felt like a fucking parody of it.>>9560224Someone needs to have the balls to have Skystalker leading an entire Decepticon sub-faction that tries to take leadership from Megatron or Galv or someone.
Transformers Reveal the Shield Battle in Space 2-Pack Cyclonus w/NightstickI wonder what character will appear tomorrow.Oh universe Cyclonus, what a triumph you were in your day. And here it is in a more cohesive colour scheme. Withouth the blocks of grey breaking up the purple for no reason.Unfortunate that he still has the gap in the center breaking up the fuselage. And that's really the only flaw you can lay against this mold. Other than that it's a iconic Cyclonus. A very long battle axe of a spaceship that fits nicely in the hand a nd swooshes through the air.I keep forgetting that not only does this Cyclonus have Nightstick but that Nightstick is just standard with this mold. Every version has him.As targetmasters go I guess he's not bad, pretty standard. Just a guy that folds up and flip out the entire gun barrel strapped to his back.
>>9560258>have Maketoys' Tailgate for years>entire upgrade kit for Universe Cyclonus came with him>it's only compatible colour-wise with this specific 2-pack release that's even harder to find than the normal one>somehow went UP in price despite an objectively better Cyclonus coming out
>>9557162Deception fembot that turns into a Tank Police inspired tank, and has a male autobot disguise who has a earth car alt-mode.
>>9560258Robot mode was the priority here for sure. The way the body chunks come together to form curved shapes is so good.A little bummed this is the RtS version so I get a rubsign instead of a regular decepti-badge.Cyclonus feels a bit on the light side, not too out of place with modern deluxes. I'm a bit fuzzy on how he may have stacked up against his '08 contemporaries.Two tone purple dominates the look here with very littler breaking it up.Just the biceps and thighs, which give him that classic Transformers look of a guy wearing armor. The illusion extends a bit to his midsection where you see his silver abs and neckline showing from under his purple vest.But what Cyclonus lacks in colour for the rest of his body he makes up for with his fiery red lightpiping that has no trouble catching light.>>9560267I think this 2-pack version is the same as the 3-pack version. So maybe that almost helps?
>All that toy info on Rise of the BeatsWhat a disaster.
>>9560246>Someone needs to have the balls to have Skystalker leading an entire Decepticon sub-faction that tries to take leadership from Megatron or Galv or someone.And immediately fail. Micromasters when used correctly, are a force to be reckoned with, but by themselves or led by one, they are useless.
>>9560287Articulation is nice but he shows his age.Shoulders are fine, they move on their two axis.Arms bend 90 at the elbow and have a below-elbow/wrist swivel.Head turns fine, no up or down.Biggest short coming; no bicep swivels. Which has to be a byproduct of how the arms deploy from the shoulder chunks.Unhindered ball hips, thigh swivels, and good knees.No ankles, no waist.Universe Cyclonus has a very standard posability layout, and a very nice looking robot mode.Unfortunately no matter how good this Cyclonus was for his time nowadays he has to compete with Kingdom Cyclonus. And that's something very few transform robos can do.
>>9560287I wanted it back then but couldn't justify the two-pack costs for a Hot Rod I felt was a downgrade, and I actually like parts of the deco on the original release.Also shows some wonderful "well that's what I expect from Hasbro" in it really>Nightstick can be wrist mounted like the Targetmasters were in the Headmasters anime>Cyclonus wasn't a Targetmaster in that show>later toys of characters who were can't wrist mount their Targetmasters
>>9560291ugh give it to me gently, anon

>>9560340>>9560341>Battlemasters, but they're all BW charactersFuck off.
>>9560340So I'm guessing this dinobot wave of Cyberverse has been a lot of filler to keeps the shelves crowded (cuz it's done, right?) and that Studio Series will be home to the "[roper" toys?
>>9560350Yes, but since the movie isn't out, these toys could potentially clog shelves and cause problems later on. Remember, these are movie toys and they tend to order a ton of them.
>>9560349It's not going to be like WFC Battlemasters. They're just reusing the name.>>9560350Most likely.
>>9560357I keep forgetting the movie got delayedSo for this whole exchange I've been like>well the movie comes out this summer so this is pretty normalBut it ain't
>>9560329god fucking dammit, when will they learn?at least we had a pretty good run of gimmickless stuff>>9560336but you must have some further info, right? because i dont see any indication that they're all gimmicks from that listing.
>>9560360>It's not going to be like WFC Battlemasters. They're just reusing the name.Probably, but they are a similar price tag.
>>9560341>all this garbage that won't sellI still see Squeeks at Ollies.
>>9560368Price tags and descriptions are enough to go by:-Weaponizer: Hard to gauge what they are, but it's likely a core like figure with some armor attachment gimmick. No clue what they'll use.-Combiner: RID Combiners-Battle Master: Unknown, hoping these aren't gimmick toys but the price tag makes me think they're either like WFC BM or like the Cyberverse small thats that had an attack and half transformed.-Smash changer are probably auto transforming figures. They might have a bit more articulation due to the price but they're still gimmick toys.
>>9560391>They might have a bit more size due to the price but they're still gimmick toys.FTFY
>>9560391i thought we knew exactly what weaponisers were, and it was 'figures that come apart into a bunch of weapons for others' akin to fossilizers>RiD combinerswhat do you mean? i'm not familiar with that line, it all looked like it was for babies. not just normal combiners, I take it?>half-transformedoh god i heard about those. and yeah it sounds like as usual the tiny kids will get their automorphs, poor schmucks. but that's all the more indication the normal toys WON'T be full of obtrusive gimmicks.. that sounds like a win in my book. and we saw normal ones in those listings, so. this isn't like that mech alive shit where everyone had a big awkward spring loaded weapon, we'll get regulars.
>>9560391>but it's likely a core like figure with some armor attachment gimmickHopefully it's those, Cyberverse had them and they were OK.
>>9560400>i thought we knew exactly what weaponisers were, and it was 'figures that come apart into a bunch of weapons for others' akin to fossilizersWe do, but these are two packs and cost 16, so it's not going to be a WFC weaponizer.>what do you mean? i'm not familiar with that line, it all looked like it was for babies. not just normal combiners, I take it?Going by the name and the mention of two pack, they're like the RID Combiners. One figure forms the top, the other forms the bottom, garbage articulation all around. They may have an individual robot mode but it probably has zero articulation and looks like shit.
>>9560407Hmm maybe they're super dumbed-down core-sized weaponizers. like they don't come apart into very complex or very many parts. 16 is pretty cheap for a two-pack I'll give you that.>mecha-shiva style combinersOH yes those are fucking terrible.
>>9560312Has anyone head-swapped this guy with Kingdom? I hate the Kingdom face.
>>9560379At least you see Transformers at Ollie's....
>>9560406Spark-armor Skybyte is, at this point, one of my favorite bots of all time.
>>9560413>mecha-shiva style combiners>OH yes those are fucking terrible.Tell that to the Trailer Brigade faces!
>>9560482okay that is adorable>>9560480i had no idea there was a line bringing back characters like that..
>>9560498>i had no idea there was a line bringing back characters like that..It was a couple years ago now....I guess he was in the cartoon? I just saw transmetal Cybershark in Seaspray colors because I had been out of the game for a decade+.
I've been messing with my TR Trypticon's and I now remembered that design flaw with the feet. Whoever designed it wanted to use the feet as both a joint and to keep the leg halves adjusted once you transformed it into city mode, but the actual piece of plastic meant to keep it in place is just too thing so it stress out a bit when it flexes into place. I'm just worried that piece will eventually breaks, it shouldn't cause any huge problems but the corners of the city mode will probably remain downward once that bit breaks.
Who would be a good character to be Shadowstriker's bf?
>>9560558Well YOU of course!
>>9560558i feel like they would have made flamewar her gf in the new run but i don't touch that shit with a ten foot polestrangely i'd be ok with that unlike 100% of all the previous gayshit they've pushed>>9560567take it to 3pg
>>9559242>>9559259If I were G1-ify him I'd have him look more like a Egyptian pharaoh and his roboty bit would fold up to resemble a sarcophagus while his kibble unfolds into a jet
>>9558965We have a mummy Botbot.
>>9556636Those darn Autobots!
>>9556636Anons 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 forIs this mold fun to play with?
>>9560246>a character that is horrifically vivisected and rebuilt against their will that goes insane with vengeance? That's sickMany such cases in transformers writing, 'they're just robots' means you can tear them apart while they scream in pain and it's okay, not like people at all. I think a lot of writers are just sick fucks.
>>9561090Megs looks great in both modes but T-Wrecks colors win in beast mode.I recommend Megs
>>9561090I'd say get megs for now, like >>9561109 said both modes look good there, while with T-wrecks you'll need to get the eventual reprolabel set or get some paint out to make his robot mode look decent,
>>9561149>>9561109yeah i guess ill get megs.Also because i want that 3rd party shotgun upgradewhile on t-wrecks it will be out of color
>>9561199Holy shit that shotgun looks awesome
>>9561205it also comes with toothrbush to hold and brush dino teeth and some addons
>>9561199>>9561212I think there's a t-wrecks colored version of that availible?
>>9560569>Dude posts official MP figure>take it to 3pgSpotted the fucking brainlet.
>>9561273>Heh, you ain’t too bad kid. What’d you say your name was? Dracodon?>Could use a corrosive little bastard like you. Wanna join the Dinobots.
>>9561199>>9561212The DNA Design kit is basically the same thing, plus rubber ducky and mutant head. Only really worth it if you also have Primal for the other half, though.
>>9561295>>9561273FUCKnow i want that instead of megs..... i just always like random characters nobody cares about
>>9561301>I just always like random characters nobody cares aboutSame, really like Siege slamdance and Puffer for this reason.
>>9561301Then get T-wrecks for dino and TMII Dragon Megs from wave 3 for character.
>>9561301I like him, he’s BW/BM-era Impactor with a bit of Harrison Ford thrown in.
>>9560747Like I said, I'd rather just have the WW design.>>9561090Regular Megatron. He doesn't have ichiban.>>9561319I'd suggest doing the opposite. Get T-rex Megatron and Cryotek. T-wrecks doesn't even have any other members of his team right now. Cryotek is a mob boss that sent Megatron's team to steal the Golden Disk.
>>9561090I dunno, I picked up the Jurassic Park version instead. Best deco and head sculpt. Shame about that cost of admission.
>>9561450I would pick this one too. if it didnt come with shitty car-former
>>9561467It's a bit amusing that the new design they made for the crossover is more of hinderance to getting the little more than a recolour that people actually want. I don't hate him though.
>>9561450She’s pretty great
>>9561467Is it that he's actually shitty, or do you just hate car-formers?
>>9561527I think overall people are just lukewarm on JP93 because he's kind of "workman". The toy's robot mode is very standard carformer, and he's based on the least interesting aspects of Jurassic Park (the humans). It's like how people when asked if Grapple is a good toy just shrug and go "he gets the job done".Also while not too loose on mine, the ball jointed elbows were a big surprise with how much modern TFs shy away from that.
>>9561552Cool. That's understandable. Yeah, they definietly could've done him better. Give the arms some green, and give him a cooler head(something like Tyrannocon's or with yellow eyes and a faceplate). I mean, the ford's patterns make more sense for something at least a little animalistic, right? Not related, but why in the fuck do people want Nyx and Skold over Bat Primal and Snapper? Like seriously, is it just because they got media appearances? Do you know how fucking stupid that is? I collect transformers because they look cool, not because I like TF media. Although I wouldn't be against a Skold repaint if we got a new Snapper.
>>9560766>king tootsmy sides. holy shit that is some HARSHLY quilted paper though. those autobot logos are gonna just scrape you clean like having the three seashells on every sheet.>>9561090t-wrecks has silver lipstick.also man we need a character named JAMIXAM now
>>9561096or violence is cool and fun and unfairly restricted from appearing in anything fun, so they go overboard the few times they're allowed.
>>9561299primal thrusters.. do kinda want.
>>9561592>those autobot logos are gonna just scrape you clean like having the three seashells on every sheet.Good god...>t-wrecks has silver lipstick.>Ichiban, lipstick for men>also man we need a character named JAMIXAM nowThis colorscheme actually looks really good.
>>9561212>>9561273Fuck, now I feel even worse about getting his MP figure. Guess I'll sell it around the end of February.
>>9561620Worst case you can just get a KO MP. They're somehow less prone to breaking than the officials. That and at this point I think the only reason to get the MP over the KD is for show accuracy and maybe the extra faces.
>>9561514Looking at this fanart makes me wish they retooled part of the kibble on the mold, primarly the thing that becomes the T-Rex thighs and have them stay on the robot mode the entire time (the side guns would simply be a hinge that takes out the things like what Primal's wrist rockets does).I can assure you that the thick kibble thighs would make the mold more femenine
>>9561706Also retool the chest.
>>9561724Eh, the most i'd like for the chest is the waist to be slightly thinner and that's about it.
>>9561739Well that and maybe make the shoulders not as wide, but that would require a shit ton of retooling, so yeah.
>>9561604Hmm I dunno, cyan and gold.. I'd rather it was sapphire and gold. I'd buy that in a heartbeep, even for sixty dorra.
Flametoys just posted some new photos of their Windblade kit, looks pretty good.
>>9562102Looks like they don't wanna show off the ass on twitter though, which, understandable. Sadly.
>>9562102>>9562107I hate windblade, and the tits are too small. Not my thing.
>>9561090Personally I waited until we had pics of all 3 uses of the mold and then got T-wrecks. Robot mode has sparse paint, but I didnt like where the paint ended up on megs, and I really dont think t-rex mode on tyrannocon is as good as people seem to think.If you cant decide between them, get megatron since he's got the most paint at the lowest price
>>9559130A bit late, but really glad to hear it>>9559242>I'm a Pretender!Are you good or bad>I... Don't know.If you don't know... and I don't know...>>9560105Yippie
>>9562223>Are you good or badWho am I to say?>If you don't know... and I don't know...Actually I remembered. Isn't a legion just a part of a military?>YippieYippie indeed.
>>9560474Universe/RtS Cyclonus is *tiny* compared to Kingdom Cyclonus. Because of this size difference, I highly doubt the heads are compatible, but even if they somehow were, the Universe head would look ridiculously small on the Kingdom body.
>>9562297I do not understand why people hate KD cyclonus's head.
>>9562332Me either. It's totally fine, and the figure itself is just stellar. I think I audibly gasped when I noticed the hinge on his wings that fold up just to make him that much more screen accurate...would anyone have complained if they didn't do that? Such attention to detail. My only minor complaint is that the knees don't really lock in place but I don't give a shit.
>>9562297>>9562332and I don't understand why people like it
>>9562350Yeah.>>9562353But why do you hate it?
>>9562368the eyes are too high up and the nose is too long.I just lowered the top of the head a bit in mspaint and I think it looks way better.
>>9562374>the eyes are too high up and the nose is too long.Now that you mention it, I do see what you mean.
>>9562374>>9562384here's another one with a shorter chinIf people are happy with it, then I'm glad they got an awesome modern cyclonus figure.I can't look at it without the head feeling "off"I had a similar feeling about the ark's head, but I think it has more to do with the overall proportions of the robot than the head itself
>>9562332looks like a frumpy nun to me, but from what i've seen of the movie he's accurate.
>>9562396i mean post a screencap, i could swear he has that long face in the movie
>>9562235>Who am I to say?Count your points of articulation, how good is your posability?>Actually I remembered. Isn't a legion just a part of a military?Yeah, just like the Autobots and Decepticons>Yippie indeed.His other thread is ongoing however
>>9562441Here's a couple for you. Cyclonus in the film doesn't have any speaking lines and is rarely on camera in robot mode.
>>9562454Cyclonus says, "you want to me gut Ultra Magnus?" doesn't he? Or was that a different character? He's in vehicle mode when he says it.
>>9562459The script attributes that line, "The Autobots have been terminated!" and a two more cut lines of "Vaporize them!" and "The explosions jammed my sensors. I have lost track of the Autobots!" However, both are framed in ways that make it seem like Scourge is talking to Galvatron and the throaty voiced used is nothing like the tone actor Roger C Carmel would use for the character in the third season, and the general gruffness is easily mistaken for Scourge's own. On a similar note, Scourge has the line "But remember, we belong to HIM!" but it's delivered in such a nasally pitch that it's easy to think it was said by a Sweep.
>>9562454>>9562455ohh you know what, I think I'm confusing him with ... well not galvatron because there he is, right there. but I could have sworn another blue-purple movie guy had a long face like that.
