For some reason that banner missed R.E.D Prime Prime so here he is. I really like the look of Megatron but I doubt I'll get him.

Also there's a rerelease of crossover Topgun Maverick, it's exactly the same.

Transformers Twitter is a cancer.

>"You can use red Fasttrack as an alternate Black Zarak spear"

Why? BZ got a proper spear. Fasttrack's spear mode is as floppy as a cooked noodle. The only reveal I care about is Cosmos, assuming it's transformation & UFO mode do not suck.

Which one?
>>
>>9864320
Has the yellow eyes Optimus always been a Japan thing? The BW anime, Car Robots, and the whole UT went with them. Ginrai went with blue but that was likely to keep in line with the toy.
>>
>>9864325
Something looks odd about the new Cosmos.
>>
>>9864333
The original Optimus Prime toy had yellow eyes. They just turned them blue for the cartoon for some reason.

Hauler

I just like Devastator green
>>
>>9864337
Cause yellow looks more evil versus blue due to out inate fears of glowing yellow eyes in the night when our ancestors did not have fire yet.
>>
>>9864352
Decepticons were given red eyes. clearly red is coded for the bad guys
>>
>>9864337
Don't you know? Blue is good and red is bad. That's why all Autobots are blue eyes and all Decepticons have red eyes. It's to signal which faction stands on the morality bar.
>>
>>9864377
>Autobot logo is red, while Decepticon logo is purple
Something seems inconsistent.
>>
>>9864333
Interesting point, US stuff rarely does it.
Another one is Kiss players Optimus, looks great.

I doubt it's a deliberate thing, they probably just prefer how it looks for the contrast.

The random kibble around its waist and back, hasbro had like 7 3p options to steal from, but they had to give kibbly mc hollow forearms.

Just shut up about it altogether.

Yo fellow britbongs when do our preorders open up, any idea?

I plan on getting Clampdown, Burnout, Cosmos, Road Rocket, Override and Hauler. Don't care for the mold used for IDW Blurr and Scourge (might get him if he goes on sale (lol)). Slicer's cool but I don't care for another Fasttrack and don't care about R.E.D but Prime and Megatron do look pretty sweet.

Honestly might reallocate my Scourge-spending money towards Maverick. I'd rather a soapy-plane of a non-character than a blatantly disrespectful take of Black convoy.

Also I might enjoy it purely for its engineering. Any anons here who have the first run Maverick? What are your thoughts? Should I just not use my cash for either toy?

>>9864567
lmao nice

You mean Override? I'd say it because its a brand new mold in a store exclusive line, but so is Cosmos...

Too bad they didn't use Cliffjumper for anyone in Shattered Glass so you could make them confused for each other.

Better sized than Bumblebee/Cliffjumper and Huffer/Pipes though

>>9864601
Cosmos was a repeatedly scrapped guy from an earlier line finally being used. Said to have come from John Warden's era.

>>9864611
If they make a Deluxe Seaspray or Powerglide, you should be able to make an evolutionary line.

Blue and red are still allowed, of course. Elita should have baby blues to contrast her red. Starscream should have red eyes.

Mostly Vallejo Model Colors, the occasional Tamiya X, on a matte primer. I finish with a Vallejo glossy varnish on things like eyes, and the corresponding matte varnish on everything else. A molotow liquid chrome pen for hubcaps and stuff like Ratchet's crest in that pic there.

Funny. Both previous Cosmos releases are closer to looking like Pathfinder than Cosmos in terms of design. The new one would look like the E-Hobby recolor that is not like that for legal reasons.

And even though pic related is my perfect Cosmos, I've still been hoping for a fat boy version for my geewunn bros, but... not like this. That's embarrassingly rough.

This isn't really even budget, this is just, "We didn't plan ahead when laying out the mold on the sprues."

>>9864970
Not that guy, but how the hell do you not plan ahead the most blatantly obvious repaint ever? This is Sega tier incompetence.
>>
>>9864994
Plus Laser Prime has pretty incompetent color layouts as well. The fact the sides aren't molded black is just baffling when they tab into several sections in both modes AND they're painte, and this doesn't take into account several sections that ended up entirely painted when they could have done a better job with color distribution.
>>
>>9864567
Wheeljack really disappoints me. If they wanted him to have a decepticon symbol, why didn’t they just put him in the selects line as Slicer. There are already plenty of SG decos that are instead being sold as diaclone.
A far less major annoyance is that neither of his new guns seem able to plug into his shoulder ports.

>They put the meatiest fucking ratchet joint possible in his fucking dino neck, when it could have just been a friction joint instead

I really want to strangle whatever beancounter keeps forcing them to use these shitty soft ratchets on heavy figures instead of just putting a damn spring loaded tooth

>>9865085
The rubber on the back is retarded as well. I have no idea how they fucked Sludge up so bad when they didn't have to add a small statue with him like on Grimlock or Slag.
>>
>>9865100
what parts are rubber on him? Everything seems like plain plastic to me.
>>
>>9865104
The grey plastic bits that connected the wings. Some copies have already developed some sag since the wings are too heavy for that piece. Don't know why the part is like that either, normal plastic should have been good enough.
>>
>>9865085
Sludge is (widely) available in the wild now?
>>
>>9865112
Oh that just seems like soft plastic to me. I was expecting full blown rubber. The wings seem fine on my copy, but I did just open him.

He's a pretty good figure with cool engineering, but damn I hate soft ratchet joints.

No, they're charging "deluxe" because morons like you fell for hasbro selling a scout class with "bigger accessories" and "better engineering" to you as a deluxe. Only now the accessories are the same damn size and the engineering still ain't worth much. Those hip flaps and open panels are abysmal. And they can't even be arsed to try and cover up how mismatched the yellow paint is. Damn, at least try to hide your contempt for your loyal consumers.

yeah as i understand it, they deliberately mismolded parts of laser prime that required them to be painted, unnecessarily, in a way that doesn't benefit him and SURE doesn't benefit Scourge.

It came with everything except the collector coin which is whatever IMO. I wanted the team and the coomer bathtub picture for sure, and the box was a "would like to have". Saved up for a few months, saw one for 288 on ebay and said fuck it.

Definitely not WORTH almost 300, but I am very satisfied rn for sure
>>
>>9865369
Congrats anon. It being worth $300 is subjective imo. It's an old figure and unique.

>>9865374
Yeah true -- when you break it up it's like 60ish per figure, which isn't THAT outrageous when it's an older figure that's unique. They're all quite fun too. I missed most of CW and experiencing the molds has been cool. Not perfect but far from the hate I see CW get.

i can't believe how lucky i am. either i've had zero yellowing or i just can't tell. and I'm used to color inconsistencies, especially with plastic vs paint meant to be the same stuff (i added a little metallic seafoam turquoise to my tigatron's plastic parts because they weren't as metallic as his painted face)

A Marvel crossover TF modelled on Spiral seems like it would be cool since she already has a helmet and good colors, but what kind of vehicle would fit is completely unknown. Also you can't make the easy setting of an Autobot pulled into the Mojoverse and reconstructed into that form because G1 Richochet is male and the last time something like that happened it didn't end well. Maybe it would be easier to just have an unliscenced refence character that is an unhinged six-armed swordswoman with magic abilities and a cool helmet in a new show.

>>9865557
she turns into some kinda weird police car. she's a remold or retool of that one with the cute helmet that kinda pokes out of the car mode.. i don't know from G1 but basically this entire line is like... good cars. like GOOD cars. the kind I actually like. but the robot modes mostly are not doin it for me.

>>9865560
If this is GOOD cars, I'd hate to see bad.
>>
>>9865563
i see them every time i look out the window. this is way cooler. it's all sleek, it has neat-shaped fenders, a spoiler, a cool futuristic cockpit-style windshield.. plus assuming it would fit a human or two inside, that makes it a BIG car, and big cars are cool.
but this isn't the coolest one by far, of the recent reveals. there's one that looks like the got dang Mach 5.

it's pointless, modern TF fandom is brainwashed. don't touch modern toyline discussion unless you want to inevitably get swept into shill discourse for hasbro or occasionally 3P tribalism. even the better looking shit is offset by how ridiculously small and half-assed a lot of it is for being 25 hamburger bucks a deluxe now

It evens out because lack of giving a shit on consumer side as well.
>>
>>9865577
i just want them to be cool. i want sleekness, futuristicity, fun shapes and angles. when I complain about the UT jets it's because they just look like random robot chunks, not even in a good way. I mean there are plenty of cool 90s videogames where you'll see some kind of jet fighter that just looks like a folded up robot, but a COOL one. Sleekness is very important. you can't have cuboids right next to the cockpit, for god's sake taper them down so they're more like car fenders. i love the blocky 80s mecha aesthetic, but it isn't always suitable to turn into sleek and fast vehicles.
when it comes to cars just don't make them look pudgy, lame, ... fuel efficient compromises with big comfortable roomy interiors..
>>
>>9865579
this one does nothing for me. it's an okay car, sure. basically the way the coolest cars looked in the 00s when the 70s-90s coolness wasn't all gone yet... better than modern cars, but nothing compared to this new one.
>box square shape
okay that part isnt that great, but I do like how it seems to be folded down over the wheel area as if like gull-wing doors.

Webdiver Galleon

I think this is the last non Transformers thing in this bin

To be honest, I don't know too much about Webdiver.
I know that it's a turn of the century children's anime made to sell robot toys.
And I know I want a Gradion but don't have one.

Just looking at this toy you should understand why I bought it.
A very dragon-y pirate ship with over a dozen little ball jointed cannons? Hell Yeah
Plus a couple missiles to fire out the front.

The deck is all full of robot kibble and the tail is a bit much, but that can't be too much of a damper on what this thing is
>>
>>9865711
I don't know what that is but I want it.
>>
>>9865711
hm
for a pirate ship, it's very cool
but for a dragon, it's not that great.
>>
>>9864749
DAMN those look crispy as fuck. Nice work, dude.
>>
can't believe we peaked with siege, the fakeout ripoff line whose aesthetic was quickly ditched despite its innovation and the room it had for more creative transformations and alt modes
>>
>>9865737
siege was the best line and will be for years
>>
>>9865738
yeah and I'm baffled
I went balls deep with it and appreciate it for what it is, I treat like a totally different line like cybertron
while with earthrise and legacy what first comes to mind are the little things keeping them from being perfect renditions of characters
>>
>>9865744
I'll prob get all of them eventually. I love the weathering, the transformations are great and vehicle modes are fantastic. Still can't believe how good hound is.

Transformation leaves you with a very pirate-y dragon man

Look at this this guy. He's glorious.
Golden pirate skull chest shares it's eye patch on the same side as his actual head. Lots of golden details help sell that this guy is out for booty.
Cape made from the sail.

There's a button on his back that makes his chest eyepatch and the cannon in his mouth light up.
Galleon's tail is super heavy and his ankles have gotten weak, so he tips backwards a lot.
>>
>>9865737
I've been hunting down Siege figures lately to see what I missed out on and yeah I am surprised at how much more fun most of them are over the ones we got in Earthrise and beyond.
>>
>>9865750
He's most certainly a dragon man, but how well does he burninate

As you can see, the whole bottom of the boat just.. pulls off and becomes a shield.

Galleon has a very good range of movement for his age.
Very tight ratchets in the shoulders(with butterfly joints), elbows, and hips.
Somewhat less tight ratchets in his double knees.
Swivels at the biceps, thighs, neck, and waist if you unplug the cape.
The ankles are on very slight back and forth hinges and the feel swivel. That hinge is what is goofing this toy up for me right now.

Seige was awful. Like why would you make a completely different altmode for Starscream and company, but then have them with the same robot mode appearance, and just do it by throwing the entirety of it on their backs? And then it also looks bad from anything but top down. They had a perfect example of what to do with War Within Seekers for non-Earth altmodes, and they went full retard instead.
Plus the toys are painted to look damaged out of the box. Why would you do that?
>>
>>9865809
Even if the articulation is okay, it looks so ugly to accomidate having armor in his base form. Why both making it instead of just having the armored form be the real robot mode?

I just looked up webdiver. To see how much it would cost to get a Galleon of m own. The main guy is a fucking Plug and Play console.

I went through them all, and the only one of mine that's showing yet is Kingdom Cyclonus. It's not horrible, but certain parts are noticeably different in color now.

I'd first want G2 Prime done up in 2007 bayverse colors, that'd probably be my holy grail. Although, DoTM Megatron would be really cool with all that weathering and shit, as well as his other signature details you stated.

Ultra Magnus was originally going to be an original character design and toy design for the Transformers Movie, but instead it was decided he'd be the Powered Convoy Diaclone toy with different colors. The toy was an Optimus with a car carrier trailer that turned into armor, but the cartoon ignored this

>>9867142
and I managed to mix paint in the right shade! .... but... it still looks wrong, too bright, too pink. and I realized it's because Kingdom dinobot's brown is too brown, it too needs to be lighter and redder to match. I don't really want to do that, so I think I'm going to compromise on a darker, yellower underbody color and do a second coat over this pink.
it's weird, I never understood why his toy was pink, now I realize the show basically did adapt that pink. they just hid it behind much better hue and saturation choices.
custom painting is kinda hard! I can't believe I'm planning on putting myself through this again for Toy Dinobot, but it's just such a pretty-good mold. slight differences in the dino feet and hands, longer sword, it'd be perfect.

This is my first experience with a complete CW combiner. Definitely a mixed bag. I like the presence, especially the pink explosion from Megaempress, but those joints are pretty loose and she's definitely not stable enough to be displayed on a shelf that might wobble.
