So Top Spin isn't coming with Twin Twist, but there's a possibility he'll be in a second Wreckers line. Possibly Fractyl as well.

Because it's Lego. They don't have infinite sizes of window pieces or wheels, they're limited by the existing pieces and the amount of detail and complexity they want the thing to be. For it to transform without being a fiddly mess they need a big size.

Not asking about scaling, I'm asking about their sizes

>>9781044
I have them. Roadfire likes to tip over backwards. For Atlas, they basically did the bare minimum to make the TR Overlord mold into not an oversized duocon and connected the two parts with a thin bar of plastic, which leaves his waist wobbly in robot mode. Also his wings require partsforming between modes. Other than that, they're fun.

Not really, and only kind-of. The bar keeping the two pieces together is pretty strong, I've never felt afraid it would break. If it did break, the vehicle mode could still stay together, though with a weak connection, but the robot mode wouldn't keep together at all.

>>
>>9781097
There isn't really, but on rewatching the Nightbird episode recently I noticed she wasn't actually drawn that small (she's closer to Optimus' height than any of the smaller Autobots) so maybe if the MP was small enough (to scale with the larger MPs) she'd sit right around a decent height. After some indirect comparisons though, it's definitely too big still.
>>
>>9781137

That's exactly what they think. They believe just pushing the brand is good enough. It's hurt the brand as well, because kids in general don't seem to care about Transfomers outside of toys, which ironically means they won't be interested as much in the more expensive products.
>>
>>9781145
it's so irritating, we had toy-commercial-shows perfected, first by giving creative and fun ideas and good action, then by adding intelligence and depth.. it looked like things were going so well. Just follow the formula. hire smart writers, creative producers, unique western design artists, then quality asian animation. it's a fucking money printer. put that shit in one side, money comes out the other. (oh and also make quality and uncompromised toys)
>>
>Spindle and Masterdomus have a combiner head between their parts

holy based
>>
>>9781147
The fucks ups started during Prime. It was already on a premium channel so most kids couldn't watch it, plus the show had no idea what it wanted to be until it was nearly over.

RID was not a typical transformers show while also being the first show with the new standard for tv show tie in toys (warriors are the "decent" figures while everything else is gimmicks or smaller budget figures). Honestly, RID had some decent looking robots, too bad most didn't get any figures.

once again, their job was on cruise control, and they still found a way to fuck it up.

Most I found seemed to match the toy, as well as this fan-made model sheet. Guess it just so happened that shot of him using the radar dish was miscolored.

I quite like them, but most people's criticisms are valid.

Roadfire is the best of the three, with Dai Atlas close behind, despite his flaws; his wobbly waist is unfortunate, but it doesn't stop him from posing and looking cool. The near-absent thighs do suck, but to me it's definitely worth getting one of the filler kits that also double as tank missile pods; then you can disassemble his waist joint and just turn him back into a duocon, which makes him more fun, anyway. Sonic Bomber is cool-looking and all, but the retools made to this mold really downgrade it; Misfire is one of my absolute favorite figures and I expected to love a black autobot retool, but nah. His giant elf booties still look really unique, though.

The colors, plastic quality, face sculpts, and paint apps on all three are fantastic, and the box itself is a thing of beauty. If you like Nippon-esque supah robotos and headmasters, I'd say it's a very fun set to own, but I wouldn't break the bank for it. I'm not even sure what it's going for these days.
>>
>>9781300
>near-absent thighs
I meant shins, derp. These are the fillers I bought from Shockwave Lab on ebay. I like that they can peg onto the top if you want to separate the alt modes, or onto the sides of the tank if you want to keep him conjoined.

>I am interested to see how the wheels disappear
This is my least favorite meme from the toonshit MPs; the wheel-hiding/swapping. The animation models removed them to save effort, but the designs look so much better with the wheels just hanging wherever they end up. Plus they help some bots to look more like actual transforming vehicles and not just a robot wearing car parts as armor. Trailbreaker in particular. Then the shitty part is that even if we do get a toy-inspired repaint down the line,it gets fucked out of its wheels.

People who like Fossilizers, didn't manage to get Impactor or Mirage and/or G2 fans.

Twintwist is for people who didn't get him in Titans Return or who want to expand their Diaclone color collections.

It's.. i mean it's how a scope works.
a telescope, opera glasses, binoculars, anything that magnifies a small area.. if you're looking at it from a distance, great. you've made what would be a speck into an ant. not much of an improvement.
I've seen how snipers use the scope and they've got it up to their face. but they have a rifle stock to brace against their shoulder, and the actiony parts aren't right in front of the sensitive face bits

>>9782519
Grimlock is just over 2/3s the height of Jetfire, Optimus is 1/2.
But you have to consider that deathsaurus converts his tail into a shield and his wings and animal friends would take up a good bit. So the robot itself would be smaller than Grimlock.
Now, if they sold his animal guys as tapes in a seperate pack like they did with doubledealer, you could probably get him a comparable height to Grimlock, just with less beefy arms and legs.
>>
>>9782580
>Turns out it's cardboard.
Of course it is, none of them had an upcharge, why would they come with extra stuff that's not cheap?
>>
>>9782568
>>9782573
well that and just looking at like, that witch lady with the hip wings, and the cat girl with the giant gross hands and feet.. those are all total digimon moves. I guess it was just the style at the time, but I kinda hate those elements even if I love that general anime era.
>>
>>9782583
To give me a reason to buy it? And now I wont? And reading various boards, a lot of people are canceling their preorder because of that stupid hammer.

Thats just 90s Capcom. Akiman and Genzoman were the big artists back then.
> that witch lady with the hip wings
Morrigan?
>>
>>9782585
Morrigan's wings attach around her shoulder blades. But the misconception has been so common even later Capcom depictions have them lower. I don't see why you would hate those elements though.
>>
>>9782588
Technically they can attach anywhere, they aren't part of her body. She could stick them on her foot if she wanted.
>>
>>9782424

Of course they do. Its a test sample, the colors will be almost entirely different.

>>9782538
>What other characters could either be retooled from a roadbuster mould or could be retooled into roadbuster?
Springer could work pretty well as a base if they retooled his shoulder fenders and the top of his vehicle mode. But on that note, why the fuck haven't we gotten a gen selects crossblades or blue bacchus from him

A new mold could be used for Gunrunner (with a core starscream repaint pack in) or maybe The Fallen (dreamwave style)
>>
>>9782038
>>9782040
It's a valiant effort, but he lacks the swollness of Depthcharge
Honestly, Siege soundwave would work as a base. Replace his pylons with wings and put him in boombox mode and you're pretty much done.

It's always been part of their insignia, and now Smashdown is a canon Wrecker and their mascot, so I guess it's a thing they were pushing for IDW19... and presumably will carry on to the next publisher.

>I didn't even know there was a Wrecker hammer.
Rack n Ruin, the unofficial mascot of the Wreckers, was a smithing machine
so one had an anvil for an arm, and one had a hammer.
Then in TFPrime, Ultra Magnus, leader of the wreckers used a giant hammer (though that was more a reference to Animated UM, who used a hammer) and wheeljack (a fellow wrecker) had a ship called "The Skyhammer" or "jackhammer"
and as >>9782698 pointed out, multiple insignias of theirs used a hammer

You don't hold it up to your eye, because you're looking through something about the size of a quarter while it's only a foot and a half to two feet in front of you. It's not hard to see.
Pistols are for close to mid-range firing. In this scenario, a scope isn't to let you hit something further away, it's to let you more accurately see exactly where you're aiming. Today they use laser sights instead to achieve similar results but each has it's own unique traits and uses.
This sort of thing is really only used in sport shooting, like most gun accessories.
For rifles, you might have both laser sight and scope because a rifle's firing range is so much further than a pistol that you wouldn't be able to easily see the laser dot.
Your typical pistol firing range is 15-30 yards, while your typical rifle firing range is 90-180 yards.
>>
>>9782707

>It's not hard to see.
no but it does mean the maximum size it can blow something up to is.. the size of a quarter held a foot and a half away from you. whereas if it's up to your eye, you can magnify a distant scene up to your entire center of your field of vision.
>pistols arent for distance
well that's another thing I was gonna ask, like why the fuck
>scope shows you where you're aiming
I can't make out enough detail in a quarter held a foot and a half away from me to know it from any other quarter-sized space in the universe. what you're describing is what a fucking crosshair is used for.
>15-30 yards
or just the standard iron sights
Come on i'm not nuts here right? this is like suggesting standing 8 inches away from the peephole on your apartment door instead of putting your eye up to it.
>>
>>9782761
>no but it does mean the maximum size it can blow something up to is.. the size of a quarter held a foot and a half away from you. whereas if it's up to your eye, you can magnify a distant scene up to your entire center of your field of vision.
There's no need to enlarge it past a certain point because the bullet will be bigger than the area you're looking at.
And again, just hold up a quarter at the end of your hand. Can you make out Washington's eye? Congrats, then it's MORE than enough to see where you're shooting.

Look, you don't have to have the gun at arms length the ENTIRE TIME you look through the scope, just for the final aiming.
If you're hunting with the handgun, it can be useful to have the scope mounted on the gun instead of on your head, so you can get a good look at the animal before sliding into a proper firing stance. But again, you would typically use this with something to brace against to stablize.

>Come on I'm not nuts here right?
it just sounds like you don't use guns much is all

originally they were minijets, but got wrecked and in a life saving effort they became conjoined and no longer able to be jets.
I'm guessing they got their alt mode repurposed after that, but we never see it. Maybe they really intended them to be action masters before it was a thing.
Furman created them as a concept of conjoined bots, but the design with hammer and anvil was 100% the artist.

That Star Saber video was nice, the only disappointing thing was the confirmation that the sword will be clear plastic. Really would prefer if it and the Brain of courage just used normal plastic for the whole thing. The other bummer is learning the blade bit didn't have a 5mm port at the end, just an I shaped peg, which means its easier to break and that Saber can't just grab the blade bit instead of the full sword with hilt.

No clue, Mark implied there was other Wreckers stuff planned but no one knows how they'll get released the moment. The only thing we know is that a Fractyl was planned for an Amazon exclusive at some point, and a Topspin should be coming out since I'd be weird to only release Twintwist.

>>9783084

Cool.

I kind of hope that if we ever get a new Roadbuster, they base it off the original toy and not a redone design. Just something similar to the Combat Calibur armor parts to bulk it up in robot mode.
>>
>>9783113
So what is the difference between the last one and that? They look about the same.
>>
>>9783122
The last one was a new vehicle mode, and the proportions were weird. Calibur had normal proportions (so you didn't need to worry about making it buff or chunk) a normal vehicle mode and the option to armor up if you wanted it to look bulky.
>>
>>9783113
That would be neat. Big nigga Roadbuster is cool but i always sorta preferred the lankier soldier proportions of the original toy. Armor parts would be a way to have both options too but I could see myself getting annoyed with the partsforming pretty quickly
>>
>>9783127
Seige was full of partsforming armor so it seems like it would have been a good time for it.
>>
>>9783128
They could also turn the armor parts into a wagon for it to pull with a gigantic gun.
>>
>>9783130
leader class roadbuster being a voyager mold with a fuckton of armor and weapons sounds great
>>9783122
generations roadbuster was an armored transport vehicle akin to a humvee, not a jeep. There was no open cab allowing figures to "drive" him. His legs folded up to form the back of the vehicle and not the sides, meaning the back was brown and not green. They changed the arms to be located on the side of the vehicle mode which meant the front fenders had to become brown instead of bright orange like the hood.
It wasn't a huge set of changed, but it was a reimagining of it
>>
>>9783139
Don't jeeps have high ground clearance so they can travel off roads? G1 Roadbuster seems lacking in that regard.
>>
>>9783139
The other weird thing is that, aside from the head and knees, Whirl was almost a straight redo of the original toy so Roadbuster being a reimagining was strange.

Did I miss something, or does Star Saber not have abduction movement for the shoulders. I assumed they didn't add the missile gimmick original so they could add the join inside it, but it seems like the shoulder movement is limited to 360 degrees and protraction/retraction.

Legitimately, who cares about G1 Sandstorm?

When was the last time we got a version of Sandstorm? Was the T30 one the last one? Kind of feels like he's long overdue, and when you consider that we've gotten two Triple Changers this wave already, it might not be weird to get one or two more (We haven't had an Astrotrain in a hot minute, but there's also Tidal Wave to consider, to say nothing of Snapdragon and Apeface)

We got Astrotrain 3 years ago
But being repacked for Earthrise kept him around longer
