I meant that there was another thread with pastbins with "All are dead" comic cover for thread image.

There's a lot of good Primes, Anniversary has the best version, this Premium Finish is nice (I like both OP molds) and if you want to have it cheap and with lots of weapons, KO will be soon on the market:

This is just going to be every thread from now on, this is so annoying.

>>9960973
Going by the type of plastic, you'll need to check some tutorials on painting unpaintable plastic. There's a few methods but most are pretty dangerous or require some experience with paint methods.

>>
>>9960973
Another anon in an earlier thread attempted a mini-retrobrighting using hydrogen peroxide gel and it looked like it helped. It's a technique that is more often relegated to yellowing console and computer plastic but it's worth a shot.
>>
>>9960983
Those methods can help, but it's better to outright paint it than using methods to restore the color, since it's likely these figures will go back to being yellow in a short amount of time and those process can accelerate the degradation of the plastic.

I only have the first SS Optimus, but it's a solid toy. The transformation is kind of a pain in the ass, though. Getting the back half of the cab to stay together while getting everything else lined up is a minor nightmare for me. Maybe that's just a problem on my end, though. I know the DotM SS Optimus shares a lot of the same beats but has a somewhat different transformation, so it might be better (or worse).

They're so close to being the same I was content to stick with the first one. I like the darker gun metal coloring more anyway, not that >>9960860 is anything close to bad. I think they're all pretty good.
>>
>>9960993
Yep, it's not a terrible idea to try it with an old item that took a decade or so to yellow, but these toys are yellowing so fast that I wouldn't recommend it, otherwise they might start crumbling in a few years.

That he doesn't end up like Skullgrin, if they aren't going to make him a proper pretender then make him look cooler than a normal robot wearing a cow head.

Got my boy and no yellowing but Jesus Christ this was the most harrowing transformation I've had with a recent transformer, so much so that if he does yellow I've made my peace with it it was God's plan for him. There was no gentle touch with this thing multiple times I had to pull real hard I thought I was going snap something and some of the sounds from snapping into place we're visceral on this thing. I was going to see how finished Menasor looked and just transform him back to Motormaster but I would honestly rather drop another 90 to have one displayed in robot/vehicle mode than try to take Menasor apart. Apart from that though? I'm completely in love with him and I can't wait to grab the other Stunticons

I can't transform Motormaster back from Menasor mode without using the flat-end of a spudger, those panels are stuck in there good.

So just more of the same cast. Again. AGAIN again.

Same, you'd assume they'd try keeping them in relative scale to their appearances in fiction or toys, but then Bomburst is apparently a core while Skullgrin isn't? Why? The one show that had them show up frequently had them around the same size and I believe the same was for their toys.

Well of the Autobot brothers he has the "splashable" design, being symmetrical and having a popular kind of altmode to recolor. The worst case scenario would be Clampdown with blue legs and new head I think.
>>
>>9961087
I'm surprised he's a regular release like in T30, for some reason Japan had his MP be exclusive while doing a literal who repaint as a normal release (I know his original release was an online exclusive but that was for the OG toy).

Skullgrin deluxe, Iguanus and Bomburst core, Bludgeon voyager, it's all so weird. Bludgeon makes sense because I feel from all his appearances in media he's ascended past the other Pretenders but why so scattershot on the rest? Iguanus turns into a bike his buddies can ride except for Skullgrin who gets to leer over him and Bludgeon who gets to leer over Skullgrin. Better be leading to a proper size Thunderwing
>>
>>9961108
At least having Skullgrin be in scale with Bomburst is a given, Bludgeon can be voyager to scale with other faction leaders.

When I was a kid I kind of hated the RID carbots (I had Side Burn and loathed it) but I wouldn't mind them being revisited to a modest degree.

I don't know if I'd feel the same way now or not, but I just found them annoying to transform and play with more than anything. As far as the vehicle modes and details go they were obviously great.

I remember watching Armada, but by that point I had grown out of toys. I didn't get back into Transformers toys until Generations in 2009. But the Super Cario Bros. weren't even all that indicative of the total RID line. They always stood out.

>. X-Brawn looks like a standard carbot

Here's the thing; in 2001 I had no frame of reference for a standard carbot except old pictures of G1 and G2 stuff before my time. I did know of the BM Dinobots, which were BW Neo imports, and the TM2s which were full of kibble; so the Car Bros looked just like them, just cars.

>But the Super Cario Bros. weren't even all that indicative of the total RID line. They always stood out.

Because most of the line was repaints. Visually they still feel like they match with the new sculpts; most notably because they all do the BW thing of having robot mode heads that are influenced by their alt-mode.

Transformers Reveal the Shield Windcharger

The big chase figure of 2010. Akin to TR Slugslinger or Misfire in his time.
Everyone had to fill that spot in their '84 cast collection.

As a toy he's okay.
Windcharger turns into some sort of muscle car. You probably saw him in the background of one of the fast and/or Furious movies.
He does look good though, you can't go wrong with red and black.

Windcharger performs his toy car duties well.
His wheels roll super smoothly and barely take any force at all to get moving. Much better than Universe Prowl.

RotF/HFTD was such a cool, brief moment. I wish I'd paid more attention then. A lot of the scouts and deluxes in particular are awesome. But I think the toys did a good job with the movie designs, too. DotM Starscream/Thundercracker is a fantastic toy and it's all the better for simplifying the surface detail. I'd go so far as to say it's one of my favorites, though I never got the Studio Series one which was essentially an upscale. I was holding out for a redeco that never happened. Whoops.

You could probably do something similar with Onslaught and Hot Spot, but you'd be screwed with Silverbolt since you can't alter his transformation in a way that makes sense with taht type of gimmick since you'd essentially have to take a chunk of his alt mode off to do it. Meanwhile, you can treat Hot Spot similar to Fire Convoy, while the trailer bits for Onsluaght can be change into limb parts.

>>9961299
I kind of want someone to do that, but with like a whole figure that exists just to fill in the slots for the arms and legs.

I remember everyone went nuts over this figure. I thought it just looked ok, and I guess I made the right call, because even years later, I still feel nothing but ambivalence toward it. I'm sure it's a great toy, it just doesn't do much for me. The sculpt just isn't there for me.

QUALITY wise though, yes, I would love to see a return to super high quality Scouts, like the golden era during ROTF/HFTD. It was immensely cool to get this compact little figure that was incredibly articulated and turned into essentially a durable little brick. Perfect pocket figures.

Oh, and Wreckage is kinda limited pose-wise (plus mine was really loosey goosey), but god, what a cool sculpt. Would recommend just because he looks awesome. Look at this ridiculous dual blade forearm configuration, it's so cool!

Windcharger is about as basic of a carbot as you could ask for.
Rear of the car flips out for legs, sides pull out for arms, hood flips down for chest.

Alongside the vehicle mode's red, all of Windcharger's newly exposed robo parts come in grey. And dark grey for his helmet and forearms.

I'm a bit sad that the Reveal The Shield™ shield was applied crooked.

I think we got some good Legends scale stuff over the course of Prime Wars (I even like POTP Windcharger) but yeah, the ROTF/HFTD scouts were next level. More interesting than most Transformers before or since. I can't bring myself to pay after market prices though.

I love a lot of what we got out of the WFC trilogy, but Transformers was such a more wild and inventive world between 2006 and 2012 (including the first toys named War for Cybertron). I think all the movie shitflinging clouded how cool a lot of that stuff was.
>>
>>9961314
Because you'd still have standalone vehicles for both the other figures, you can't really do that with Silverbolt in a pleasing way since:

-You'd have to figure out a redesign of his transformation to both accommodate the robot below the jet and all the parts. Without those parts, Silverbolt doesn't have an alt mode.
-You could add extra parts to the alt mode, but him being a jet means he'd essentially have a realistic alt mode mixed in with a booster accessory similar to Star Saber, which would be cool but feel off compared to the other combiners.
-Strap all those parts without a care, but then he'd be even lazier than a number of third party Superions

Windchargers hand flip around to deploy little guns.
The guns have little 3mm clips on them, as was the style at the time.

For articulation Windcharger is ricking the ball jointed shoulders, elbows, hips, ankles and neck. And some hinges for the elbows.
So he's no slouch for posing. I'm probably the one letting *him* down here.

There's definitely a lot of continuity there, just like you can feel some continuity between UT and the first movie line.

Depends on continuety, and even then they might not give a shit and ignore things established prior. For the most part, they use rare living metals that have some regenerative properties, so you can't just fix them with whatever parts are laying around (unless they ignore it and they do).

Japan didn't need to care, because the beast factions still had the same names, they were still Cybertrons and Destrons, the big departure was the Gigatron faction being called Destrongers.

A strange choice for Soundwave, but I think this is a better alt mode than the half-assed shrugs that are SS Bumblebee Soundwave and Siege Soundwave. Not an amazing toy or anything but I've always liked how compact the vehicle is relative to the robot mode. It's a very satisfying transformation to me.

I'm curious what they'll do for Soundwave in Rise of the Beasts. Even if he doesn't show up in the movie I bet he'll get another toy. I'd gladly take another car alt if it meant he transformed into *something.*

They came from that future, the Cybertrons were chasing the Destrongers who came to modern day Earth. I don't blame you for not knowing this because the show has like one line refencing something vaguely about it while this infor was in production blurbs and only really elaborated upon in newer tie in material

Irc, the events of the show are supposed to happen in a brief period between Battle of the Star Gate and Robotmasters (Transformers have a huge battle at the n of BOTSG and all end up apparently "disabled" at the end for a period of time), and this wasn't even established until several years after the show aired.
>>
>>9961441
I like how Japan sort of followed the US's lead with BW II-CR but did their own thing. So BW II is about two factions stranded on an alien world that's actually Earth, but its the future instead. Transmetals and a few 97 toys had third modes, so BW Neo is all about triple changers and the main villain is a fuzor. BW Season 3 really emphasizes they traveled through time, so CR is about time travellers recovering "O-parts", which are out of place artifacts; i.e. ones not chronologically fitting where they were found.
>>
>>9961456
>Car Robots was a complete split from the Beast Era

Not really, the storyline didn't emphasize it but the design element is still there. BW Metals didn't do great but they were still planning on bringing over BM in theory when that accumulated 26 episodes; its just between that failing and Hasbro shifting gears for Armada that they decided not to. The Destrongers are still TM2 designs they wanted to get mileage out of and Gigatron is designed like a beast era design.
>>
>>9961496
If there's one thing I always found funny about RID, is that the kid character is barely a factor. He sometimes won't show up for several episodes, and when he's finally important, it turns out his ability is something that other human kids can do. Even his dad tells him to his face that he's not special, which seemed like a harsh thing to say to your kid, even if I get what he meant by it. Even funnier is that he's never referenced outside the show, other human characters make cameos (the girl that kept getting attacked is buds with Sunstreaker) and even special appearances in G1 material or alternate universes, even his fucking dad had a hand in development of the Trainbots, but he's perpetually stuck in the show.

Weirdly, Slash's official online bio stated that she was supposed to be female in this incarnation as well; for whatever reason, the dudes who came up with the box bio identified her as male instead, so when they made her POtP version, they recycled the older bio to make the author intent known.

I recommend it, though I don't know what it goes for now. There's also the FoC voyager but I'm not sure how different they are. I loved most of the WFC/FoC designs. I wish I still had my WFC Optimus. It's a bit more awkward than Soundwave or Bumblebee etc. but I don't think we've ever gotten a cooler Optimus design. Great alt mode on it, too.

I would say that explains the heels, but it isn't exclusive to Slash.

She was going to be in the movie originally, too. There was going to be a whole pack of her, with the 'main' one being paired with Hound (who is the only main character who didn't get a Dinobot partner in the finished film).

That it is. I didn't sell it or anything; I just don't know where the fuck it went. Might've gotten lost somehow in a move. Tragic loss. As cool as it is I don't think I want to throw $50+ or whatever on another one. Though maybe I should, since I doubt Hasbro will ever revisit these designs.

My issue with the AoE/TLK designs was how little they even resembled transforming robots. Optimus doesn't look like he transforms into anything, much less a truck specifically. TLK Megatron is one of the better designs, I guess. Did TLK even have any decent action in it?

So I left for a while so Im not sure about unicron crotch. But I was here in the beginning. Back when some fag named Setsuna was a mod on the /toy/ irc.

Back when Sean Long and Peaugh were spending thousands of dollars to see who get transformers animated toys the earliest from the chinese theives.I believe a bidding war happened and Sean ended up spending something like $6000 on... I want to say blackout but it might have been an earlier figure.

Back when Peaugh bribed Sinno Prime with an original drawing of Ultramagnus from a TF comic artist to basically spy and mass flag a few youtube reviewer accounts to get the leg up on transformers reviews.

Back when Jin Saotome was just starting to be a fag here, and then banged Sinno, pics and all. I really cant remember Sinnos boyfriend name. But he allowed it to happen.

Back when chugs were $7.77 at walmart and they made so many walmart exclusive Masterpiece Skywarps that they went on clearance for $16

Back when a anon hasbro toy designer leaked the mold for Power Core Combiners Huffer before anyone even knew PCC was a thing..

I dont think /toy/ is even remotely that tight knit anymore.. Do any of you even know what an IRC is?

Fuck... lol I'm old as piss.

/toy/ had a chat room for a while as well. Again, cant remember what it was called, but it was chat and video at the same time.

>>9961757
oh totally, that bugged me too. everyone was too slimmed down. even 'galvatron' wasn't that bad and he flat-out didn't really transform.

show silverbolt has a muuuuch longer plane neck than the toy did, so odds are that portion would actually end up splitting to becoming the base for the arms while the base mode ramp would fold out to become the leg bases.
The wings/silverbolt arms would be folding up to form the torso proper.

>>9961731

WAIT... NOW I DO!

Holy shit... What about that one dude who did nothing but make Custom Devastator figures... he sold them and kept how he did it a secret.
I remember he was a full of himself cunt, and then one day someone who bought one of them leaked the video, and it turned out it was held together by lego pieces and a long metal bar through the middle of the figure to keep it together... fuck... this was BEFORE 3rd party figures were even a fucking glimmer.

lol.

No no, I totally get it. We got some truly amazing toys out of those movies, and I appreciate them now even more in hindsight. Now that I've gotten over my childish hatred of the Bay designs I can appreciate a lot of these toys for the marvels of engineering and articulation that they are. I have even rebought some toys from that era that I sold, and I like them much better this time around.

i just realized that, especially in terms of their toys (which for obvious reasons couldnt break the vehicles up into a million bits and mostly just moved big vehicle chunks out of the way to reveal greebly robot parts), the baydesigns were basically inverted beast wars.. where the skin breaks apart and reveals smooth metal parts underneath.

I would rebuy it if you see a decent price. I regretted selling mine back in the day, so I rebought it, it's a great figure even now. Just a fantastic looking sculpt.

Alternately, if you really like the design, I think there's an upscaled KO of it, and some third party versions of this design as well.

Oh, how unfortunate...well, WST should still bring up some results if you look in the right places. It was a fairly big thing 5-7 years ago or so, there were KOs being made in every colorway possible, so you had tiny versions of all the wacky exclusives, like BAPE Prime, Pepsi Prime, etc, every possible color of Seeker, translucent versions, Shattered Glass, everything and anything you could imagine. Eventually they even moved past the bootlegged Takara molds and made some original WSTs. It was a pretty cool time.

I need to get some TF ‘tism off of my chest.
I fucking hate Hauler. We all get that Grapple was supposed to be part of the season 1 crew, hence why he was in the pilot for a second and the fact he was going to be the 12th deluxe autobot at release. I have now added Grapple as part of my ‘84 crew headcannon. That is all…

Or when he was playing sympathy points for a shitty review of a ratchet toy... it might have even been transformers prime ratchet or chug ratchet... because he said his wife had a miscarriage when she was just late on her period by 2 weeks?
>>
>>9961805
MPs are an easier margin to be competitive on, and this only became more and more true as Takara's stuff became more complex and expensive. I don't own any 3P stuff aside from the Hot Soldiers Ratchet (pretty decent but not great) and Striker Manus (which I think is kinda crap) but I definitely get it. I'd be into it too if I cared about MP-style figures at all.
>>
>>9961292
I think my general strike against it is the TOONING like the closing panels covering up the leg guys. It just makes look much plainer. I would have accepted painted shins that resemble Brakedown and Wildrider when the doors close. The arm transformation where Dragstrip and Deadend split up is pretty cool though.

Menasor in solo mode is still surprisingly more stable than the floppy shit Combiner Wars gave us and glad most of the combiner stuff was just delegated to the cab. Motormaster is alright on his own and only has the combiner head hidden away.

Unicron Crotches was around that time. Back in the dark ages before Combiner Wars brought people affordable combiner teams and FansProject upgrade kits for Energon combiners were the hot new thing, kitbashers were gutting Unicrons and Primuses (Primi?) for their bodyparts, primarily the crotches but also the arms as well.

There was a big shitshow because Jin or some other kitbasher (I'm like 99% sure it was him tho) had uploaded a private video about how he customized the crotch to allow everything to connect to youtube and someone from here downloaded it and shared it with the public, with Jin threatening to sue because his hidden techniques were being shared to the public. I don't remember the full details but someone can probably explain this part better than I could.

>Botcon guys planning for 2007 take a look at these fancy nu-G1 toys and asks Hasbro if they can do the rest of the Seekers
>Hasbro says sure and Thundercracker, Thrust, and Dirge end up as con exclusives limited to an expensive near-$300 boxset with Bug-Bite and Dreadwind
>Casual fans are upset because they don't want to pay scalper prices for what they think at the time are the only chances people have at completing their seeker collections
>Hasbro can't do jack shit about this without making the people with the Botcon set pissed and sit on their thumbs for several years
>Meanwhile in Japan Takara puts out their own versions of Thundercracker, Thrust, and Dirge, leading to many fans buying them up overseas
>Generations picks up in 2010 and the rest of the world FINALLY gets their hands on the other 3 seekers after the hype for the Botcon set had died down

If you look at Botcon's sets post-Games of Deception whenever they do a figure of a major G1 character (AKA someone from the 84-86 cast) it's almost always after they've gotten some sort of CHUG figure (The lone exception being Timelines Kup & Scourge in 2009). Everything else is either Shattered Glass, something Late-G1/G2 inspired, or themed around a specific TF line like Animated or Machine Wars.

Aah, what a mess. I guess Hasbro gave the go-ahead cause they weren't expecting the line to go on much longer after the extremely lukewarm reception to Classics. People were PISSED about certain ones, like Grimlock and Mirage. I'm sure as shit they didn't foresee the empire that would eventually become CHUGURTS.
>>
>>9961939
>People were PISSED about certain ones, like Grimlock and Mirage

Grimlock - shortpacked highly wanted character, then it turns out his toy is complete shit
Mirage - "literal who" that looks awful in photographs, then it turns out his toy is fucking amazing
>>
>>9961939
Nah, Classics was big from day 1 in the fandom. Its just that it wasn't meant to be a ling term line. Like Bumblebee and Starscream got so much praise from the get go, it was insane.
>>
>>9961939
>>9961950
The two big reasons for people being pissed about that Grimlock/Mirage 2-pack were because they somehow managed to fail SPECTACULARLY with Grimlock's paint scheme and because they actually made the new Mirage inferior to his previous two releases - namely because they removed the shoulder ports where his guns were supposed to be mounted and decided to mold his whole body in blue and then paint the white over it, which is doomed to chip because his chest touched the floor in alt mode. Some very easily avoidable mistakes, but they went ahead and made them anyway.

Also, while we're talking about CHUG, I am usually not a fan of Galvatron's design, and this was the one time I really did.

Starscream why are you doing this to me

Biggest flaw if you get him: he doesn't play nice with 5mm system-- his hands are only 4mm, and thus can only hold his gun, Classics Rodimus's gun, and Robotmasters weapons/flipchangers guns.

I hear so many great things about this mold but I just can't get over the looks.

Earthrise Starscream looks better to me in every way, but unfortunately is a rather mediocre poser.

Love my Siege Starscream, really wish he had more expressive hands, either posable or hand swap. That would have made him perfect, especially if you swapped is head over with TC.
>>
>>9962062
Don't, you fucking know the mold sucks as a female transformer, it MIGHT be good if they retool it into Prowl or Cybertron Ransack, but there's no way to know until it happens.


>>9962061
I get what you mean, I like the tetra Jet, and the transformation could have been more complex, but the greebles are less noticeable in person and the proportions are still way better than the ER. You can also transform it without scrapping the paint off of the head (good luck doing that with the ER, specially the coronation version, kind of crazy the Siege dedicated one tiny mold for the heads).

I get what you mean, the lack of smoothness is a bit jarring, and the jet is a silly pyramid. But as the person you responded to, the posability was so endearing that I somehow managed to overlook those things, the greebling means he's engineered to be even more powerful, and the jet is like, I dunno, Galaga retro tier sort of "it's dumb" kind of cute. I don't love the jet mode either, the chest panel thing and overall transformation is eh, but the bot's still fun to handle and transform, with even the back being fancy. Somehow it just worked out for me.

>>9962076
>weathering
>dopey looking pyramids
>the purple jets, Redwing, and Thundercracker look great in jet mode
There's something so bizarre about how lovable these things are. I really really want a conehead and Ramjet (Pr?) sounds promising, but owning Henkei Starscream I don't know if I'd exactly be blown away by the Earthrise mold...
>>
>>9962092
i think the only part I don't like is the way that the angle changes harshly along one axis but smoothly along another. like pick a lane. either be polygonal or curvilinear. the combination looks dumb, like an opera house or something. looks weirdly fakey and weak.
the basic idea is good, and i like cybertronian vehicles that look like this instead of a folded-up robot.
>>
>>9962028
>Which do you have?
all the named seekers except redwing
i waited him out and resisted temptation to get him at double MSRP for 2.5 years, then missed the sale where he was $10 below MSRP and sold out forever
i would ideally sell skywarp and thundercracker, but i swapped TC's head with starscream as was i believe intended. and with SW i want to keep fracas
then the netflix guys are great for their deco, and the rainmakers are so vivacious to let go (plus ion storm is in the blue order)
really doubt i'll get any more seekers ever again
i didn't even like earthrise more, they were available and i thought 'may as well'. will prbably sell those 3 in the end tbqhdesu

>>9962092
>but owning Henkei Starscream I don't know if I'd exactly be blown away by the Earthrise mold
If you already own the Henkei, don't even bother. It somehow feels worse than the Henkei/Classics seeker despite the ER being based on that design. It's honestly disappointing because ER Starscream could have been good, but the fact they cut the time to design or produce it in half (compared to other voyagers) meant they needed to cut corners to meet the deadline, which is why it was based on the Classic design to begin with.

I was tempted by the cheap coronation Starscream prices I saw now and then, but if he's that bad.. I don't even have henkei out, he's just in some bin or drawer somewhere, I remember he wasn't too posable or fun, had a pretty jet but that was it.

>>9962103
>>9962162
Maybe I just have shit taste, but I like ER Starscream. And I did own most of the legit Classics repaints and some of the more famous KO ones too. It's just an enjoyable figure to me despite some flaws, and it has some design features I absolutely love, like the shape of the feet, that no other Starscream has.

What do most people hate about him, anyway? I never did find out. My main issues with him are lack of articulation in the waist/torso (but most Seekers have this issue) and his skirt gets in the way or looks bad flipped up.
>>
>>9962197
>What do most people hate about him, anyway? I never did find out. My main issues with him are lack of articulation in the waist/torso (but most Seekers have this issue)
The set right before ER didn't have said issue. Had better articulation than most figures. But besides articulation, ER Starscream did most things better than Siege Starscream.
>>
>>9962162
>But they're all named..
Not the Sparkles Seeker. Easy to forget about because his color scheme is horrendous, but he does exist.

I'm sleepy and ungreedy!! Sureshot, and Needlenose as deluxes, then Quickmix, Landfill, Ruckus, and Windsweeper next year to complete the other sets, maybe have one of them show up in legacy. Can't really think about retool potential or look at toys/art for similar guys (pretenders would probably be easy for their similar altmodes, or just make a nothing like Skullgrin). The pretenders I listed- shoot, Bludgeon's a voyager, so Stranglehold and Octopunch should be too... but who would buy a voyager of Stranglehold? Who'd buy him at all aside from us??
Uh the Autobot pretenders I wouldn't mind having as core, if it's unpopular/obscure pretenders (and that's saying a lot), and I can nab a bunch of them on sale.
>if they are or aren't exclusives
No exclusives ever. Uh, Antagony on like, whatever the biggest American chain is that's not Walmart.

>>9962197
>Maybe I just have shit taste, but I like ER Starscream
I mean, it looks very neat... couldn't really tell you one way or another about ER as opposed to Henkei. Coronation Starscream for deluxe or core prices would be fine, unsure if I'd pay voyager prices for the mold though.
>What do most people hate about him, anyway?

The only way to make a good G1 Ironhide is to do the battle sled thing.

>>
>>9962474
I think most would be ok with it if releases were faster.
When Siege rolled out 4 waves of deluxe figures came out in about 10 months time, but Legacy has just started to trickle out wave 2 of their deluxe figures in nearly the same amount of time meaning if it keeps to this pace we won't see four waves of Legacy until late 2023. Studio series isn't lurching much faster and they have the double issue of jugging between movie figures and the G1 types meaning If this is the new trend of speed people will get more annoyed of the nonexclusive like Siege Soundwave taking up slots to an already small set of figures rolling out. That said I wager more causal collectors such as yourself hold more of the market meaning this approach will make the internet reee but sales will be steady.
>>
>>9961995
I hated this toy so much that it might be the first tf I ever returned to the store. I wonder if the design would've worked better as a voyager, even a leader. With more room his bits might not have gotten in each other's way so much, and his limbs not so prone to popping off.

and that was fucking slow even for then. We had 4 waves of Titan Returns and 2 waves of Powers of the Prime in a year's time. And if you went back to before the Prime Trilogy it wasn't unheard of to have as many as 7 waves in a year, sometimes even full waves with little to no repacks. We are now in a time where you are lucky if the 4th wave is doing more than adding just one figure.

Starscream is passable, but Inferno looks uglier than the original somehow to me. All his details and shapes are so uggo. Even something you'd assume would be a easy win like sculpted detail feels uneven what with the non-ant parts on his bot mode looking super underdetailed and stiff.

The old deluxe classics are going for a fraction of the usual price now because everyone wants the ER Classics 2.0 seeker mold.

I'm gonna laugh my ass off when next year or so they release a proper MP-style jet seeker that doesn't have the Silverbolt syndrome undercarriage and everyone has to buy 20 different seekers again.

Not the most unique or imaginative Galvatron out there but I would love a figure of his later IDW Earth mode, I don't think there's even a third party offering for it.
>>
>>9962812
They will buy them regardless of how they transfomer since they are Starscream and company. Seekers sell like hotcakes.
>>
>>9962812
I was thinking of maybe just selling my set of seekers (no Acidstorm) as a bundle just to ensure they all get out of the house. But I've been lazy about making BST posts here or anywhere else.

>>9962817
Well they said more everything so it's an option.
Also some 3p does voyager scale idw OP.

My childhood G1 Scoop spent an unknown amount of time buried in a sandbox until his rediscovery years later. He's got a bit of rust on metal parts and lost a wheel but he's still kicking all this time later.

Was scoop actually a hyper religious dude in g1 or is that just an IDW thing? Cus ngl I like the idea of a religious autobot who always tries to do what he believes is best because of religion stuff

Much like Star Saber or Swerve's personalities, Scoop's faith was an invention of IDW.

Don't worry. Between a $30 figure, the $15 3p 3D printed filler set, and the $15 Reprolabels to add the stripe, you'll end up with a halfway polished turd you can be proud of until the next Ironhide figure comes out.

>30 dollars for a studio series voyager
Man they’re 36 dollars at the very least now. Much more likely to go up to 40-45 next year if trends keep going as they are
>>
>>9962900
Part of the reason I think Transformers made kids interested was that unlike Go-Bots with its flat geometric shading, Transformers would (AKOM aside) use more irregular and dynamic shading for shots, making things just more visually interesting.
>>
>>9962905
Well the Fed just lower rates down,again, so yeah we are going to see some wild inflation come the fall/winter. I don't think it's unrealistic to assume in six months a Voyager will be nearing $55.

>>9962912
The early episodes especially, before they settled into the groove. I think after episode 8 it's juuuust western enough to pass the squint test, compared to something like Roll For It or SOS Dinobots which stand out as being closer to the Robotech side of 80s robot shows than they do the Go-Bots one.

>>9962910
Why would they lower rates? In the UK we just hiked ours earlier today.

But then again Hasbro did say it was trying to absorb some of the costs itself because, unlike Mattel, they didn’t believe customers would be willing to pay if they got to high. Would hiking rates again fix inflation? I’ve been having convos about this all day and I still don’t understand

Fine, Antagony, Fractyl, and Packrat as individual exclusives for uh. Packrat for amazon, Fractyl for Wallgreens, Antagony for uhhh man I really don't want to give anything to walmart. What's the least popular Kingdom mold to make a repaint out of? Man I hate exclusives a lot ;_;

>Why would they lower rates?
when they raised them that little it rocked things hard the last couple of months so between a hard rescission or risking hyper inflation, they are leaning on the later, which in the long run is a crazy clown world play because if the US hyper inflates that would create a global market collapses that would make the western 2007/2008 housing market crash look like the best years anyone ever had.

>Would hiking rates again fix inflation?
technically yes but they went this go on for too long. The should have hiked rates in increasing intervals slowly back at the start 2021, like tapping the breaks on you car to slow down but not full stop, we would have likley still seen a 3%~ inflation jump but it would have stayed controlled and this mess would be over. However what they did was barley any increases and as such after 18 months of this we have reached a point where in order to stop the inflation it would be like slamming on the breaks to such an intensity it would throw the driver out of the car.

So in short enjoy seeing fewer Transformer figures as well as seeing their price tag balloon wildly.

So how's the toy/shows? Haven't heard of this before.
>>
>>9962342
Voyager price point, and they couldn't add double hinged pieces to avoid those gigantic hinges at the side or add the yellow stripe? The irony is that despite all that, the fact that he can yellow via the pelvis section AND all the clear plastic, he's still technically the best Ironhide so far.

I have the Siege, so I'll probably wait for a possible improved KO or the next attempt in a few years.

Does the PF Siege Starscream had any reports of yellowing?

>>9963222
No, only SG and earthrise/ss were spotted.

Toys are very much "an early 90s american action figure company tries to make robots" as well. Which really hurts the combiner and stuff like that.

The toys were made by Toybiz iirc. Look kinda janky.

Got Impatrick and Spindiddly in the mail today
I really wish the Dino mode was more posable.
>>
>>9963407
Man, fossilizers are such a cool concept simply because of the potential of building some real abominations with each unique mold. Do wish that Transmutate wasn't advertised by being built like Paleotrex but with a different head, you can make Fossilizer Transmutate vaguely ressemble the BW design.
>>
>>9963407
It mostly needs head movement, which is a shame becaus they went out of their way to make the top of the Spino head a separate piece (unlike Paleotrex), but didn't go all the way into making the whole thing a separate part.
>>
>>9963416
A swivel at the neck would have gone a long way.
As it is now you can swivel the top half of the skull but the bottom is locked forward.
>>
>>9963422
>As it is now you can swivel the top half of the skull but the bottom is locked forward.

I suppose you could use it to make it look like Spindles jaw was snapped.
>>
>>9963431
Also on the back of the bot head, is that circular part meant to be like a laser hole or something? that's what it looks like to me.
>>
>>9963410
i'd like to see some people's attempts..
>>9963436
for a spino, I would think that's a water sprayer. those can be devastating with the pressure up high enough
>>9963322
you know what this reminds me of? the 'ronin warriors' toys that... at the time, I thought were so amazing, but in retrospect were kinda jank
it makes me wonder, SURELY there was already a toyline for yoroiden samurai troopers, why didn't they just bring those over?

I want to know the original listing... look closely, that's a chevy logo on the front. Was this meant to be some sort of Transformers movie tie-in or "wink wink nudge" rip off? The buck teeth are Bumblebee's crotch too.
>>
>>9963684
i mean that's -kind of- a chevy logo. but unless they've changed it a lot since my day, it's different. the horizontal strip is similar, though somewhat chevron'd, but the central piece is a hexagon (appears to represent an isometric cube) rather than the central square.
>>
>>9963688
Ah, the rip-off then.
>>
>>9963746
i would say it's just logos being similar.. it's possible someone did have "let's put something like an automotive brand badge on it" in mind, since it also looks a little like the Genesis logo. though nobody has ever fucking heard of Genesis cars, I had to look it up, I just remembered seeing a badge like that before.

yes but considering that it should be deleted on sight, its survival is a massive success for it, and a loss for us.
especially since it makes it difficult to make another legitimate one.

Man, I love the red gun, but I have so many figures that could use that gun, not so much the tiny one but there's probably some small deluxe that could use it.
>>
>>9963942
Anon how
I 'd use it for a Straxus-esque "defeated but still sticking around" thing and his fren or successor using his guns, only issue is you already HAVE a Jhiaxus
Also HOW anon
>>
>>9963944
Friend is apparently using the body for a custom. I can only imagine he's turning it into some seeker, he apparently hates the guns and has no use for the head. I never know what he does with them. I once ended up with like 16 TR Nightbeats because he apparently needed the vehicles for something (he only wanted a dollar for them).

I say yes. We make a new thread, we migrate to the new thread, we keep the new one alive. Since the troll thread will hit bump limit before ours, it'll stop bumping, meaning the real one will be the one at the top of the catalog that the sheeple will swarm to instead; once we're certain the real thread will stay, we post a link over in the troll thread to try and get some people back (and piss of that ban evading faggot in the process, which would certainly make me smile).
If the mods delete it? Make another one. And another. As many replacements as they remove. It's time to stop just passively waiting for the mods to do their job or for that troll to literally drop dead, and time to actually stand our ground for once.
