>>6285801Show accuracy be damned, I like Toothpaste Kup. Can't wait til I actually find that fucker instore.
I need this to be made in real life.
>>6285801I already have a good Kup. I'll just wait for the redeco. Probably into Crosshairs.
Does anyone know if this is still coming out/when??Starting to worry his wave will get dropped. Could always buy his shitty Autobot redeco and paint it.
>>6285815I really hope so. That's solid mold and I want a simple Bludgeon to fiddle with at my desk.
Do any of you buy KO figures? I'm seeing some "high quality" versions on Ebay but pictures may be deceiving.
>>6285829KOs of which figure specifically? TF KOs really have this stunning wide spectrum, from "almost legit quality" to "absolute dogshit," so it really depends on which you're buying. A lot of us bought the MP cars because the KOs were particularly high-quality for example.
>>6285837Well Id really like to own a decent Soundwave figure, but Im a bit iffy purchasing from a unofficial manufacturer.
>>6285837I have a KBB MP-10V. Only issue I've had with it was a mismolded bit inside his chest which scratched his bumper before I noticed it and sanded it down. But I haven't heard anyone else complain of this issue, so I assume it was just me.
>>6285848Interesting, haven't seen that one before. They replaced the hands with jointed ones, huh? Anyway, it looks okay to me, but as with most KOs, what you see isn't always what you get, and you may have to worry about plastic quality/breakages. I looked it up and this thing is like $60. For that price, I might shop around a bit...I got my legit Soundwave for just $85 used. Maybe put up an ad in the BST and try that first?
>>6285848For Soundwave, aside from the official, there is: A. What's pictured here, a straight up KO with random improved hands.Tolerances are okay. B. THF, which comes with all the cassettes. Had some hype going until in hand samples popped up, which suffered from ratchets everywhere that did NOT have a good range, and simplified details. C. Robot Hero, which like the above will come with all cassettes, but might be the best KO yet. But after the disaster of THF I'd say wait for reviews.
>>6285820Yeah, I don't buy any of the RID stuff because of the fugly symbols, but I won't be able to pass him up.Shame, because there are quite a few toys that look pretty good. Red, white, and blue jet guy, Soundwave, Blurr, Starscream...
>>6285801Strange, but the new color scheme made me cancel my pre-order. XD
>>6285815Kind of embarrassing that it took them until RID2015 to make a good Bludgeon head.
>>6285804Too big, plus the parts for a deluxe already exist, only need to repaint them.
>>6285801>that Hasbro face sculptJUST
>>6285801That pic was great till the last panel Way to much cringe there, just show the improved Kup he didn't have to say anything and if he did "you left a piece out" in note to not having the TM gun from the Hasbro version would have been good as well.
>>6285801>both faces look like shitOkay.
>>6286022Needs a CLASSIC EDITION underneath the name
I love the poseability on this figure. Show me the best arms crossed pose you can pull of with your bots, /tfg/.
>>6286031I reality don't like the neck on the voyager.
>>6286031You can pretend his door panels are long sleeves.
>>6285801I hope my spare heads look nice on Kup, or may be I should wait for the Ironhide variant that may or may not be happening.
>>6286112Seriously a good remold of Kup would make for a great Ironhide and Ratchet. They could even give him a battlesled.
>>6286082I mean it's show accurate for the most part. I just wish the mouthplate gimmick was executed a little more better.
>>6285829i have the wei jiang hound KO and it's one of the greatest transformers i have
Getting a little irritated waiting for new stuff to drop. Monday's the street date but good luck actually finding anything in my bumfuck part of the world. What are you fags picking up?
>>6286148I already have Barricade. I'm planning on getting the new deluxe Bumblebee, voyager Optimus, Hound, and Megatron, and maybe Crosshairs and Drift.
>>6286151I don't know, I rather like what I'm seeing of the new molds.
I hope MPM Optimus Prime turns out good.I like Wei Jiang's Evasion Prime a lot, but the G1 Homage alt mode doesn't really scratch that itch for a good Murderprime.
>>6286154Third party party kit of Crowbar head and two pairs of those spiked guns when?
>>6286154with the exception of the bright orange claws, it looks pretty good
Bootleg-Skrapnel anon herePackage arrived today, few things:- plastic bubble was not sealed to the board, held on by single tape- the grey-metal of his pincers is pretty dull (comparatively though, it's pretty close to CW Bombshell's pelvis grey), and the fat pins holding them on are a bit loose- arms on Reflector are really loose- worst thing is that on the back of Skrapnel's forearms, the purple plastic is a bit shitty-looking, it's hard to describeAnyone had similar experience w/ the first CHUG Insecticon? Each one released between lines, was Thrilling 30 really this brutal, or is this bootleg not indicative of this fig's quality?
>>6286179I got 2 Skrapnels back then and both got their pincers loose after a couple of weeks, must be a design flaw. the insect legs are a bit gummy and one of my reflectors can't stay transformed because the pin isn't straight, you aren't missing much, hows the yellow on the chest? does it match Bombshells?
>>6286179Where did you order it from?
>>6286154>Get shitty DotM version of this character>Fuck this, he'll never get a good moldFeels good to be... wrong?
>Finally get around to watching Dr. Smoov's vidsTransformerkino
>>6286022I still wanted deadkup, heck, just give me the body in an industrial color and let me plug a custom head on!
>>6286154I want to want the new Optimus but I just don't really like the newer design. It's a shame, because during my break from collecting I neglected to pick up a good movie Prime. It's not a big deal, but knight Prime doesn't do much for me. I'm somewhat more interested in the new Megatron, though.
Any fan modes for TR Sixshot?
>>6286519If this guy transformed into a jet than a truck, his toys would be very good.
>>6286616You might be able to repaint the new Megs into him, I mean that Prime doesn't have any specific altmode part visible and the new megatron already has a similar shield, just change the head.>>6286568I'm surprised no one has tried to give Quickswitch his missing altmodes.
>>6286179>>6286257>>6286266These are the $16 bootleg ones you can get on eBay. They're pretty terrible.
>>6286645You can sort of repurpose submarine mode into boat mode, but you're screwed when it comes to his drill tank mode.The best you could do is get a third party, or shape ways to replace the nose of the jet with a drill
G2 megs is apparently coming with one of the upcoming box sets. It's going to be the voyager, but since hasbro was fully accurate with their G2 optimus stickers I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of the BIG STICK.
>>6286670Where did you even get this info?
>>6286645>I mean that Prime doesn't have any specific altmode part visibleI think that's what bothers me about it. The design in the first three movies looks very much like an Optimus that turns into a truck; he's just more elaborate and alien looking. Knight Prime looks kind of generic in comparison.
>>6286179What identifies them as bootlegs? Telltale packaging details? Particularly egregious paint?
>>6286673Not him, but it seems like a reasonable assumption to make given the existence if Laser Prime.If I were to make another assumption, it's that we still have two full sets coming, themed after the other two stats on TR collectible cards.>intelligence>fireblast
When do TLK toys come out?
How many repaints could we expect in TLK?I'd really like a white version of Barricade.
>>6286815This makes more sense. They also have to come up with 2 more settings for the packs(probably Eukaris/Jungle Planet 2.0, and Camius).
>>6286815>intelligence>Nautica was left outthat's pretty funnyBut who would BE in the intelligence one? For autobots, I'm thinkingSkyshadow repaint to jetfire?obviousy the other autobot cloneMaybe a proper nightbeatand I dunno for the voyageron the decepticon side I'm guessingShockwave out of Galvatron (takes a bit of retooling, but mostly making the legs turn into a handle, and the nosecone become a barrel)I think we could pretty easily get a deluxe constructicon, hook from Hardhead or Scrapper from Kup.the other clone, and then for leader, they're reused every mold so far, and a lot are decepticons, so it could be a wild one like reflector remolded out of soundwave/blaster, or it could be something generic like nemesis prime.
>>6286832the settings don't really seem to matter.The "chaos on velocitron" had Optimus, who's not a speedster, Nautica, who's from Caminus, quickswitch who could fit any theme, and a clone.I suspect that the clones are picked to fit the theme, and everything else is just gravy.We know we have a bird and a jet clone left.If I had to bet, they picked "velocitron" because it's easy to identify the reason for the planet (speed)I think the next two are going to be earth and maybe junkion or quintessa.
>>6286839another thing I just thought of.the previous 2 sets had a leader Optimus, and a voyager optimus.I wonder if we'll get a leader megs and a voyager megs for the next 2.Not sure how we'd get a leader, seeing that they avoid remolding if at all possible, unless they go full retard and make CW megs into a headmaster.
>>6286825>white powerSummoning white power combiner prime
>>6286818Swefag here. We've had the first wave of Legion and Deluxes at TRU for about a month now.
>>6286825Black-yellow Bumblebee, maybe? Then again AOE didn't even give us Stinger.
What the hell happened with UW Computron? It just keeps getting more expensive.>>6286889Is Movie Prowl still alive in the comics? A Movie Prowl is way past due.
>>6286519Again - seeing some of the hand-in photos of this stuff is really selling it for me.
>>6286179>release legends Insecticons>do them across 3 separate lines >starting with one released in about 3 countries worldwide
>>6286903Pretty clean robot mode except for the heels.
>>6286892>It just keeps getting more expensive.Yeah popular takara goods are like that
>>6286892>Is Movie Prowl still alive in the comics? A Movie Prowl is way past dueWiki says he is. I've wanted a Movie-style Prowl for a while now.
>>6286892Supply and demand my friend. it's why some of those Chinese zodiac exclusives are cheap. No one wants them
>>6286914>it's why some of those Chinese zodiac exclusives are cheap. No one wants themMaybe if they came up with something cooler I'd want to buy them.
>>6286917The colors is what kills me. They go with what seems like the worse patterns.
>tfw my local hobby/toy store has MP megs for 350 kanuck dollarooneys>350 fucking bucks
>>6286148There are a bunch of figures I'd like to get, I really like the look of pretty much every new deluxe/voyager mold we've seen so far but at £22.49 for a deluxe you can fuck right off.
>>6286148Megatron, mp bumblebee.Fool me once, shame on me, fool me for a decade, well, good business practices I guess.
>>6286987I'm expecting them to be sold for higher when they hit my shores too. I'll probably wait it out for parallel imports or clearance sale. Or maybe i'll just get the TakaTomy versions since they'll likely be similar in prices.
Can anybody provide a visual as to the height difference between TR Hot Rod and Titanium Rodimus?
>>6286134Christ which one of those knockoff Hounds is that? LOOK AT THAT FACE
>>6287045>being this newWei Jiang's hound
Is Sky shadow worth getting it?I will get the Takara version of Overlord though.
>>6287036Pretty much the same.
>>6287057You know, I haven't really heard any major issues for him, not even sticker issues. >No complaints about a TR toyThat has to mean it's good?
>>6287045Gee if only it was in the fucking post you quoted.
>my KO soundwave is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing>my friend still gives me shit for it being not legit>he payed 340 dollars for his legit copy to a scalperPlease stop sucking HasTak cock my dudes. It does bad things to your head.
>>6287127I could understand it if it's something that's only kind of expensive on the aftermarket like Red Alert. I mean he's overpriced but if you really want your box to say "takara" instead of "takasa" that's not the end of the world to pay ~100$ for a carbot.Soundwave's pre-reissue prices are just nonsense though, going out of your way to get an official one is just being bad with your fucking money. If you don't want to buy a KO you should just not fucking buy one at all until you find a good deal.
>Diabattles V2 Cosmo Maneuver type is out>The Cosmo Battles 02 in the color scheme of Diabattles v2 is a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive and already sold out everywhereFucking. Why. I just wanted the Cosmo Battles 02, now I have to spring for an entire V2 figure.
Reveal the Shield campaign should start today.They will reveal in the next five days THE LAST KNIGHT toys that we haven't seen before.
>>6286905>>6286903>>6286902Just go him today, besides the weirdly painted eyes and no wrist swivels, I like him.
>>6286902>>6286903>>6286905Certainly looks better than the actual product shots. I just don't like that dark grey, though.
>>6285801Why does hasbro kup have mccaulay culkan lips?
>>6287296Because it supposed to represent Kup from the current comic continuity or some shit.
>>6287331And it doesn't even do that well
>>6287227For reference, here is the standalone 02 module.
>>6287344And here is the full Cosmo Battles figure.Complete different colors from the other Battles V2 set
When's the Power of the Primes bullshit starting? Do we even know anything about it aside from the poll winner?
>>6287348That looks pretty cool.>>6287412Nope.
>>6287475It does but the only new bit is the 02 module.The rest of it shares the same engineering as pic related which is why I wish that the red and blue variant of that vehicle got a wider release.
>>6287412NothingSo far speciation is post movie line so say spring 2018 which is likely a fair guess since we have TM stuff running though December.
>>6287412All we know it's an entirely new gimmick with greater integration between the comics and toys (since IDW is doing the 13 Primes storyline) and possibly toys of several of the 13.
>>6287412Hopefully the gimmick is less shitty than headmasters.
>>6287522It's probably going to be targetmasters, like the ones coming with Kup and Hot Rod.
>>6287535>Line with entirely new gimmick>entirely new gimmick>entirely new>IS IT THE GIMMICK FROM 1987?!
>>6286008What could be more suited for Shit-Piece?
>>6286022Not sure how well the colors will match, but for anyone interested, this is definitely possible with a spare Titanmaster head/ball joint, if you want to try the igear head on future shitpiece. You may have to force it, and you may get a tiny crack in the socket for the ball joint, but it really shouldn't affect the head, structurally.Even though older deluxes were bigger, their heads were generally smaller, it seems.
people can shit on IDW all they want, giving Kup a cigar was the most obviously genius move ever
>>6287618If there's one thing I'm glad about the headmater gimmick coming back, is the fact that they have the make heads properly sized again. I hate pinheads on robot toys, I like good proportioned heads and having to transform them is keeping the heads nice and big.
>>6287535Nah, probably power masters. Can't transform without some stupid "key"
>>6287618I originally disliked the downsizing/simplification of modern retail TFs, but now I've come to love it. They're making some really fun toys in both modes, and the fact that the Transformations only take like, 30 seconds tops and still manage to be clever is a big plus. They might not be as impressive, but in my mind, that's what MPs are for. Although, with Megatron, they're beginning to go too far in the other direction.I still like Generations Kup, but mostly for the alt. mode. His bot mode does indeed have a pit of a pinhead, along with some other strange proportions. And his forearm kibble sucks.
>>6286179>>6286257>>6286266>>6286660>>6286812>>6286904Sorry for delay, here are some pics
>>6287727Grey on the pincers vs CW Bombshell
>>6287731Prev & this are good to see comparison of yellow chest paint
>>6287735Dead on shot
>>6287737Sorry for potato phone picsThis one shows the 'shitty' forearmsAnyone got pics of a Skrapnel picked up at retail? Does CW Chop Shop have the same mild issues (loose pincer joints, etc)?
>>6287727>>6287731Thats pretty much identical to the original, heres my gen Skrapnel bought years ago.
That feeling when no porn of Bayformers Megatron ripping Megan Fox into two with his giant Cybertronian dick.
I'll never understand why the first batch of photos looked the way they did.
>>6287769They just got the colors wrong and no one caught the mistake, plain and simple
>>6287760Gimme a few days.
>>6287748Heres a inner arm pic of the generations, loose pincers were a design flaw, even Chopshop has it.>>6287760You could always pay some artist to get it done.
>>6287769They were being accurate to the few episodes were Kup was a Targetmaster (rebirth). but fans mostly remember him for his movie and headmasters deco.
>>6287783>>6287773That was the idea with the original color scheme for the toy, but on the show he was pretty much this exact color of green, not totally grey.
>>6287783He's pretty dull, but he wasn't monochrome gray.
>>6287777So Thrilling 30 Skrapnel is a bit sub parCW Bombshell is perfectly adequate, if a bit plainTR Kickback honestly looks great in comparison - shame about his rubber head though
>>6287769Because Kup looked grey in the VHS version of Transformers the movie, same as Hot Rod looking red until the DVD fixed it back to magenta.
>calling a TOY trash is now considered flamingJUST
>>6287760Not on a safe board, but have an "aftersex" sketch.>>6287846Kickback is easily the worst, the arms are too long.
>>6287760>"You want a piece of this ass, Megatron?"
>>6287852What do you get out of insulting someone else's purchase anyway?
>>6287875The satisfaction of pointing out their shit taste in front of everyone.
>>6287875What do you get out of being an oversensitive baby who gets mad because someone doesn't like your toy?
>>6287890No one cares but you.
>>6286151>Buying any non MP since the prime animated series fist editionsKekimus maximus
>>6287769>>6287771This is another thing that current Transformers do that I think is an improvement over the ones we were getting 4-8 years ago. There's a lot less shell-forming going on. Most toys ended up hiding away arms and entire torsos underneath. There were a lot more panels and kibble involved. Nowadays, it's far more likely that arms and torsos are made from integral parts of the alt. mode. While this may require some compromise here and there, I think it results in a much more satisfying toy.
>>6287931Yeah, my biggest concern nowadays in buying a TF besides looking at the articulation in regards to whatever weapon of fighting style the character has is the paint decor, or waiting for a price drop if the character doesn't sell much to the kids or they overstocked.
>>6285801Is Kup's color supposed to be dark teal or is it gray? I see some pictures of him being a lot more gray.
>>6287944The first pics had the color desaturatedHasbro has it happen a lot too. Hotrod looked magenta.
>>6286853I AM FERGUSON MAXIMUS
>>6287931Getting into TFs again recently, that's how a feel about a lot of older generations stuff.Like all the extra complexity only serves to have kibble hanging off everything.
>>6287769Not sure I like this face for him. I prefer Hasbro's take on his face.
Post the most one sided battles you can think of with your TFs.
>>6288001Trypticon swallowing headmasters is a thing, so...
>>6288001MP Soundwave vs. MP Blaster
>>6287961I suppose you're entitled to your opinion, but Hasbro's face doesn't look like any face Kup has ever had, and even as an original take, it just looks like a bloated old man face with blue bananas for lips.>>6288001I just realized I don't own a whole lot of Transformers that are considered super-powerful, canonically speaking.
>>6288003Closest I got to that is Gnaw Maximus
>>6288004>"nice tape deck... what you doing later?"
>>6288001Fixit is a prison warden.He's no pushover, power wise. He's just timid.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prti1nM0H6khttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwxFOw3Kj30He tosses bots four times his size around like they're nothing.
>>6287937It's alsmot certain (at least in the US) that every leader short of the last wave will take a serious dive in discount. Soundwave was under $30 last month and will likely reach that again. I see Black Shadow diving when Overlord hops out. Then again, the films might mess with the system we have had the last 3 years.
>>6288013I wonder what people's opinions of this show would've been if the toys were Prime First Edition- quality.
>>6287937>waiting for a price dropI got a CW Armada Megatron the other day from clearance. I was slightly surprised when I learned when it came out; he had been shelfwarming for a long time I guess. Shelfwarmers: Robots No One Buys. Pretty cool figure, though. In some ways I like it over the G1 version. It's interesting what doesn't sell sometimes.
I'm running out of room on my MP shelf, I also don't want to look like a plastic hoarder. Which of these duplicate MP molds would you put into temporary storage?>Prowl>Smokescreen>Bluestreak>Wheeljack>Exhaust>Tracks>Loudpedal>Sideswipe>G2 Sideswipe>>6288035Good toys don't change opinions of the media they're featured in. RotF had great toys, and people still shit all over that movie as the worst of the bunch.
>>6288027Yeah, LCs like the Seeker trios had plummeted into the bargain bin during Christmas.When it comes to deluxes and voyagers, it's a hard way to bet.
>>6288045I don't think anyone's ever said ROTF was good because of the toyline. I know of people who say the toyline was the best but not for the movie.
>>6288052Yes that was my point.
>>6288042It's no surprise, it's a repaint (and retool?) of an existing mold that was released beside it. Green doesn't really sell for Megs, and not to mention that it's an obscure design.
>>6288056I'm not surprised it sold significantly less than G1. I'm surprised, after the rest were all bought, it stuck around for as long as it did. It's a niche figure, but it's still a cool looking figure with Megatron's name on the box.
>>6288013Anon Sixshot and Black Shadow have destroyed entire planets.
>>6287898No one cares, but you still asked anyway. Which is it?
>>6288099No one cares that you insult them but anon was curious why you do it. Your answer is circular in nature becuase you are getting off on being stupid.
>>6288099Obviously you care if you bothered to reply.
>>6288007>Hasbro's face doesn't look like any face Kup has ever hadBeg to differ, of course the pic I'm using isn't a great representation he really reminds me of Marvel g1.
Any word on when the Masterpiece Bumblebee will be released? I'm not a huge transformers guy but I really want this
>>6287727>>6287731Your piece actually has a better paintjob than my confirmed official Shrapnel. I don't really think it's KO. The T30's build quality was pretty bad all round.
>>6288197and every last Marvel G1 face was positively hideous.
>>6288007>those lipsJ U S TUSTseriously, I can't believe how much fucking better this figure looks just by making the arms not boring boxes and fixing the terrible face.
>>6288273Not arguing it's appeal, anon said Kup's never looked like it. Now you're saying "well, ok, so he did, but it's still bad" because you don't have an argument.
>>6288259It's slated for july, but not preorders are up anywhere yet.
I like both Kup faces. I don't think either of them are perfect "Kup" faces, but they're both pretty good. Hasbro looks like an old bastard and takara looks like a confused grandpa, I love them both.
>>6288197UGh, who wants to get reminded of that? Marvel G1 in this era looked like humans wearing some weird robotic armor. Even as a kid I hated the human faces and hands so much that I stopped buying the comics at this point.
>>6288273That's funny, I grew up with the Marvel comics and think the faces are great.
>>6288352I loved them so much, so I don't really get it.I loved the idea that they were humanoid, and that their shells basically changed with every new alt mode they get.Made sense.
>>6288007>but Hasbro's face doesn't look like any face Kup has ever hadIts just his g1 toy face with a chin
>>6287852Is the MP fandom toxic?
>>6288361>>6288363Guess I'm the weirdo then, but I hated this era with a passion. I even liked it better when the robots were drawn based on their toy forms, rather than the animation. It was typically at the start of the series. As long as they actually looked like robots I was hooked. As soon as they started to look humanoid fleshlings with armor on I moved on.
>>6288375>I'm a man in his mid to late 30s posting on /toy/ to argue with teenagers
>>6288384Nah, pretty sure all of us are in our thirtiesWe have enough expendable income to argue whether we should import our robot toys from japan.
>>6288375Taste will always differ. I think the main selling point for me was the facial expressions.
>>6288384Or, I didn't grew up in the USA and we got the original Marvel comics way later than they were actually published in the USA.
>>6288409ThisAnd the goreOr, the gore facial expressions.
>>6288404It's not Sakamoto, so I doubt they will. /co/ would probably love it though.
>>6288412>There won't be a TR Scorponok that scales with PMOPI didn't ask for this feel.
Did you guys see this thing yet? Some guy built a 1:16 scale devastator. I know you guys don't like tfw, but it's fucking impressive.http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threads/48-devastator-bruderstator-1-16th-scale.1089465/
>>6288013>little guy is actually insanely overpowered trope
>>6288443Looks better than that 1.5m tall one some dude got female models to photograph with.
>>6288375>>6288409The really human-like look was really only pushed by one guy, Andrew Wildman. I grew up with Beast Wars so I missed out on the Marvel comics initially, but the Marvel team from late G1 did a few BW comics for Botcon which I read online. I was initially a bit taken back by the really humanlike look, but now I find it intriguing. Its not my preferred look, but I like how "2000 AD" it feels. Like, I could see these Transformers in a Judge Dredd comic.
So how come Janny deleted every post ITT critical of Takara but left every post by Takara fans about how much they hate Hasbro?
>front page of allspark>castle grey skull openingOk what the fuck. That isn't even fucking HASBRO related.
>>6288467Becuase he didn't and it's just some kid that discovered the delete function
>>6288467Because Neca is Godliness
>>6288474Are you implying that all the deleted posts were the same person? Because one of those was mine and I got a warning for it.I guess weebs gonna weeb though.
>>6288443so how does he get to the toilet then?
>>6286151Ive found at least a few things to like in every series
>>6286825Id like a red version of the helicopter DriftAnd a blue redeco of the Legion Drift
>>6288478That's what you get for liking inferior products.
>>6286148Bomber Megatron, Drift
>>6286148I kinda want to get the TLK Drift and an AOE Drift to have as a kind of "Red Oni, Blue Oni" pair of robot samurai demon warriors. Need to come up with new identities for them though.Speaking of Drift, is the Generations figure worth it? He looks awesome.
>>6288585This would kind of work. >Speaking of Drift, is the Generations figure worth it? He looks awesome.Yes, in my opinion; I really like him. You can probably still grab the nicer third party swords on ebay for cheap.
>>6288635Forgot my picture. Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm.
>>6288585The fact that his car mode is reversed in tlk is pretty neat too.
>>6286148Barricade and bomber megs
This just feels bad.
Really bad. Is there a chance to hope he gets a leader since this line is being padded out so much?
>>6288585I like this idea.
>>6288670Hasbro photographer strikes again
>>6288676Leaders for the line are set to be Optimus, Megatron, Alpha Trion, and Quintessa.
>>6288683>QuintessaYou can't be serious
You guys got your not-Doublecross for xth time yet?
>>6288702So is Heatwave Sixshot's grandson or something?
>>6288317I don't see retarded lips in that panel. Do you?Every time Hasbro shits out an ugly design someone says>b-buh it's based on the comicsEven though it barely looks like the comic.
>>6288713What size are these?
>>6288708Just a Prime in the making, those change their altmodes quite often.
>>6288722>Prime>Has no combat experience and would get beaten up by Vehicon
>>6285977I still want a Mainframe that transforms into the old reel to reel computer.
>>6288683>Alpha Trionwtf is he going to be a retool of, considering he's not in the movies at all, and there have only been like, 5 non-OP/Meg leader toys for the movies ever made, and he can't be a jetfire retool since there's no compatable optimus anymore, and making him a brawl retool would be idiotic since he's a tank.Ironhide or Sentinel? Sentinel maybe.Definitely not Grimlock unless they want to remold him into a fucking dragon or something.
>picked up twinferno, Kickback and Optimus>they're all kinda shit
>>6288725Optimus was a librarian that got bitchslapped to death. I think a firefighter has a better chance at being a Prime.
>Titan master faces keep chipping even though I mostly keep them in alt mode or transform their alt modesIt's their vehicles isn't itIt's their FUCKING gimmick where you have to put them SOMEWHERE because GOD FUCKING FORBID THAT YOU GET TO KEEP YOUR HEAD ON FUCKING HASBROI used to not mind that everyone was a headmaster because we got some nice figures anyway but FUCKING HELLDo I just return/exchange these? Because the new ones will have other QC issues won't they! FUCK
>>6288729My bet is a retool of TLK Megs.
>>6288719Voyager.$30 usd voyagers.
Does this...trigger anyone else?No its not the fact I have boxed shitty retools, I got the whole trio and all but that isn't why I'm nagging (and I got the trio for the price of 3 voyagers total before you asked what the fuck I was thinking)>tfw you see a figure misb with its head/limbs in strange positionsI saw a voyager TR megatron with his chest panel open in a shop and walked right on past it, now my thundercracker is looking right up at the sky and it bothers me.Question too for boxed collectors, box scuffs kill resale value, yes?Because I'm about to open these things
>>6288713As much as I want the leader galvatron unless a NEW leader optimus comes out I'm tempted on the new voyager optimus, its alot cleaner than the leader.I'm just gonna wait for a version with painted rims though, galvatron as is,is fine
>>6288737Isn't sg prime the librarian and g1 show he was a dock worker?
>>6288443Seen it before, long time ago
>>6288800IDW and Prid Orion were librarians, not sure if G1 got retconed ito one too.
>>6288791>Does this...trigger anyone else?No. Stop being a little bitch.
>>6288819But anon, that's all we do here, don't you remember all those deleted post?
>>6288791I'm only bothered if it's things that might indicate that it's broken.For example, I recently bought a TR Rewind online that somehow came with it's head detached.
>>6286825Would love to see the new mold in his original deco.
>>6288791Oh yeah, definitely gonna open these up, each of the boxes are different in design.>starscream's has a border on the front left side>thundercracker lacks the border and has a small slit so the window wraps around on the left, pic related>skywarp's lacks the border of starscream's but the left side straight cardboard like starscream'sNifty, it makes each box more unique, shame only starscream gets an accenting accessory to make him stand out by himself as a figure>>6288827That is fair, dunno it just bothers me to see a head sideways or a forearm that's twisted into place differently than its other arm
>>6288837i like blue starscream
>>6288839His deco is the busiest of the 3 and more g1 accurate (least to skywarp who got a purple chest because too much black)
>>6288837Scuffs like those are are fine for "okay" condition for opened w/ box stuff, if you're that interested in retail.Anyone who's into MiSB stuff though would want pristine boxes with no mispackaging.
>>6288845>Anyone who's into MiSB stuff though would want pristine boxes with no mispackagingWell, shit there goes my plans to sell these at 300% profit later on, thanks for the info.There are far more serve marks on other sides of the boxes, right now in my country shelves are clogged with starscreams and skywarps, thundercracker who NEVER got an official release here is supposedly quite desirable now as a result (ended up buying him from a different seller, had to use ebay codes to knock him down to the same price as the other 3).Well, into the seeker pile they go
>>6288852Well if the toys are in fine condition you could still get a hefty amount for "100% new in perfect condition, box damaged but never opened" on a rare toy assuming the toy is fine.There's people who just want to buy new toys and people who want to display boxes, you could appease the former with that thundercracker definitely.

>>6288861>>6288862I didn't think it was possible to make AOE Bee look worse
>>6288862This is sorta more tolerable if only because SILVER FIXES EVERYTHING but it just replaces the blue accents the normal one had, also purple eyes
>>6288861>>6288856I'm not entirely unconvinced that they just had a shipment fall in a muddy ditch and are trying to salvage the situation as "battle damage"
>>6288865Much better>>6288863I know right? The fact these are PRIZES is fucking hilarious>>6288866Well one out of 3 survived...sorta
>>6288856>>6288858Been seeing a few reviews on this mold.Is it possible they retooled shellform-atron into optimus or is movie galvatron way different?
>>6288731why all the hate towards twinferno?if you know how to properly attach the ankles/hips of the dragon mode to the body there is not really a problem apart from the gorilla arms
>>6288881Why the all the engrish?
>>6288909How do you do that anyway?
>>6288909>if you know how to properly attach the ankles/hips of the dragon mode to the bodyteach me senpai. They just keep popping out.
>>6288958i will make a video about it next week on youtube, i'll post the link in the most recent thread by that time
>>6288670He seems to have a missile rack in the movie. Does the toy not get one? There is a hole for it.
>>6288948>>6288958Use plug the back tab into the middle hole, it will click in.
>>6288467Imbecilic imbeciles, I believe is the term.
>>6289023He has it, see >>6288676It's just the usual stock-photographer shenanigans
>>6289027THANK YOU, I bought twinferno today and opened him like 2 hours ago, anfld got real frustrated about this. Now I'm happy, no qualms with the figure at all. Wave 3 is fantastic
also, are the cannons meant to sit on Twinferno's shoulders? The tabs seem too loose to sit in.
>>6289023The movie truck has an actual back end and not just two gray guns. The toy looks like shit with painted windows.
>>6288670>>6288676>everyone was coming over the brightly painted toy fair samples>"MOVIE TOYS ARE GOOD AGAIN" they said>"wait until you see the unpainted retail versions" I said>no one listenedFeels, goodman.
>>6289128Probably just some waifufag thinking with their dick
>>6289105Anon it's TR. It's either going to be too loose or so tight that the plastic cracks/stresses.
>>6289105Peg's into the wings and rests on the shoulders
Did this happen to anyone else? I just went to move his head during the transformation and the hinge cracked. I didn't think I was using excessive force but I guess I have secret retard strength. It still actually stays together because the red part under it keeps it attached, I'm afraid to superglue the hinge back together because I might superglue the whole thing shut. So I guess I'll just leave it.
>>6285801Chest and arms are new moulds.
>>6289217Weirdwolf has a known issue with it's hinges. Basically, it can do what just happened with you out of nowhere because the hinges are a bit too thin.
>>6289219>ChestJust the paint aps, head and arms (and targetmaster) are the new parts.>>6289217No, but my Rodimus has a crack in the middle of its spoiler.
To my fellow Canuck Fucks on here, have you ordered anything from Big Bad Toy Store? Was looking into getting MP Megs, and they seem to be the only store to have it in stock. Just wondering how fucked I'm gonna be with the shipping.Also, to anyone who bought MP Megatron from BBTS, are the safety plugs glued onto the figure, or can I just pop them off if I order him?
>>6289233Shipping isn't too bad for over the border, but there will be a customs charge at the door/pick up. Not to mention the dollar conversion.The plug will be glued in. Most have said they've been able to to pry/twist it out. But there will probably be glue residue.Might have a better time with agesthreeandup as they're located in Canada and they usually offer flatrate shipping.
>>6289233>Canadian>ordering from BBTSHave fun getting raped by their shipping. Have you tried TFdirect or Ages 3 and up?
>>6289217exact same happened to me half an hour after I opened him up, remove the yellow hinge completely and stick with the red bit
>>6289217>Did this happen to anyone else?No I bought the Takara version.
>>6288806Who is that gray guy?
>>6289233I've used them before I found other websites. Customs will fucking destroy your wallet-pussy the moment a shipment exceeds 100cad.Try ages 3 and up instead, I think they still have megs either in stock or a new shipment coming soon.
Anyone else here play earth wars?
>>6289298Yeah, but I'm getting pretty tired of it. I'd quit but I like my alliance.
>>6289249I think that issue affects the takara version too, although I've had mine for several months and it hasn't broken yet so I'm not sure
Anon who bought the LG Blaster for 55 on Ebay a while back. The Auction included LG Blaster, LG Rewind with Nightbeat, and Triggerhappy, but not only did he send all this, he also included TR Stripes and CW Shockwave.Both those toys were in the pictures, but weren't mentioned in the auction, still nice he included them even if I'll probably give them away.
>>6289217This happened to me like..minutes after getting it and trying to transform it.
>>6289318>giving away CW ShockwaveWhy?
>>6289340I own 4 of him, 2 normal one's, 2 Action Master one's. I really don't need a fifth.
>>6289345use the 3 normal ones to make the camera mode?
>>6289240>>6289241I honestly didn't know about Ages 3 and Up or TFDirect, so thanks for letting me know that canadian-based retailers exist>>6289297It says that they're currently out of stock. Any idea when the next shipment would be?
>>6289340>>6289345Is it illegal to dislike CW Shockwave?I don't really care G1 Shockwave's design though I like the character and I would get the Reflector set if it wasn't that I despise clear plastic with a passion.
>>6289370if you got one with shitty balljoints, no
Why was i kicked from the discord?
>>6289392Because you're a faggot, perhaps.
>>6289370>Is it illegal to dislike CW Shockwave?No, it's not illegal to dislike anything, man. It's just a toy. Some are nearly universally liked though, like T30 Springer or CW Shockwave.
>>6289403>universally liked>T30 SpringerMaybe if he had a better head, a better car mode and a better copter mode.
>>6289383>Tfw the pin joints on my LG Shockwave's knees are looseI give it a year before he can't stand anymore.
>>6289393there is a discord?
>>6289370Nah, you're free to like what you want. Though, the action master colored CW Shockwave uses no clear parts, just so you know.
>>6289348>I honestly didn't know about Ages 3 So I'm guessing you have never gone to TFcon then huh? They are always there every year and they do have a YouTube channel even though I find that Ragin Nation guy there to be annoying.
>>6289259it's a modded MP Bluestreak to look like a delorean. A dude on ebay makes them and sells them now and then.
>>6288007Hmm... his face looked better in me head, last I saw him. :lStill, I wish the Takara Kup looked a bit more grouchy.
>>6289249Sorry for your loss
>>6288927>taiwanese lucky draw figureWhy do you think
>>6289475But Taiwan doesn't do engrish, that's Japan.
>>6289407Sandstorm has better alt modes but Springer has a better bot mode.Figures.
>>6289249I've had my Hasbro version ever since it came out and it's still fine. Transformed him maybe 10 times total. Thought I'd have way more fun with him, but his wolf mode is really a case of "great articulation, shit posaibility". His paws are huge disappointments in how much they can really move, and his leg armor serves no function other than getting in the way. Not to mention the wolf head that's on a ball joint but it might as well have been a swivel.
>>6288375I liked both type of art, really. Only real problem with the later art was that they lacked the detail that made them look more distinctively robotic, but that's probably because half of that artists run had them fighting Unicron and its aftermath - so it's more like all the extra detail had been punched off of them (Fort Max fighting Galvatron has this done pretty much panel to panel). Still, you are right, they did look a bit too much like armoured humans.As much as there was a problem with the art, the writing was 10x shittier, looking back on it now.
>>6288881>>6289475It would be funnier if the joke was at the expense of indians
>>6289318That wasn't a scam? Why can't I get that lucky with Ebay?
>>6288837You might, genuinely, have autism.
>>6286117I was thinking it would work pretty easily with just new windshield, redone arms, and the sled being made up of two pieces that form up twin blasters or one giant gun.The only downside is Ratchet being suck with a giant gun.
>>6289460You know, he has this reputation of being a grumpy old man, but I never recall Kup being that explicitly grouchy, except towards Hot Rod in the movie.
>>6289567>The only downside is Ratchet being suck with a giant gun.Downside? big guns are an important preventative measure against battlefield injuries.(also fuck, my Ratchet's right elbow has become loose, it can barely hold his chrome gun. I'll need to figure out a way to tighten it at some point)
Is Overkill a decent stand-in for Snapdragon, or do you think they'll make an actual one? I want one to go with my Apeface
Is Robots In Disguise pretty much done as far as new figures/molds go? I heard this year may be the last, but it seems like they never really pushed hard/had any consistency with the Warrior scale toyline.Which sucks, that show had some cool designs/bots that could've made for fun toys.
>>6289692It'd honestly be for the better if RiD ended and they put the money being mostly wasted on it, into the Generations line. Of course, even if it does end, that probably won't happen. Hasbro will pocket it.
>>6289691Maybe in some box set, alongside Ironkup and Kupchet
>>6289723I honestly found myself enjoying the toyline for the unique/obscure characters, especially the Cons. Thunderhoof, Fracture, Bisk, Scorponok, Parlon, Quillfire, if it weren't for the dumbfuck sticker those all could have been really great(I still enjoy those toys regardless though).I do agree the toys could be better, but I'm just a bit sick of rehashes of the same characters over and over. I can only hope the next show or toyline continues the trend of more obscure or original Decepticons.Also holding out hope that the Bludgeon is released relatively soon and isn't shitcanned by retailers in favor of the movie merchandise.
>>6289786The cons were the reason to buy anything from RiD, they were just better.They got some pretty creative monster bot modes that worked well with the style, compared to the drab and boring cars.
>New Thew Review after months of nothing>Think that he will finally review computron or some other large beast like Liokaiser or Chaos on velocitron>nope it's some glorified knockoff shit that takes minimum effort to review>has whole line of Titans Return in the backgroundjust disgusting
>>6289217holy shit no, mine aren't even cracked
>>6289809>implying Thew has time to review toys between unboxing shit, house hunting and packing boxes.
Hardhead would make a really good deluxe tank Megatron with a little remolding. Give him a new, Megatron-looking chest, a little changed details here and there, a fusion cannon instead of a rifle and a hole on the right arm to peg that fusion canon into. It'd be pretty good.
RiD Laserbeak looks really good in package. Too bad it's packed with that gimmick brick. Damn.
>>6289924>Open packagePeople will just rip it right off.
>>6288791>box scuffs kill resale value, yes?If you want an investment, buy a damn savings bond.
>>6288731It pleases me when a fanboy suffers.It pleases me immensely.
>>6288683I find it difficult to believe Hasbro would sink the resources into making Leader Class figures of Alpha Trion and Quintessa considering how most of the line is just redecos
>>6288868>The fact these are PRIZES is fucking hilariousHow so?
>>6288863Because in real life, things never, EVER get dirty. Especially things that get into fights, amirite?
>>6289940That isn't open-packaged this time.
>>6288881>>6288862>>6288861It's funny.People here bitch and moan that there aren't enough paint apps on a TF. Or that it doesn't look screen accurate enough.Then when they do exactly that, you STILL bitch and moan.
>>6288467Maybe it's a subtle hint to shut up.
>>6289691Passable enough if that's what you want to do.I just use him as Overkill
>>6289809Then get up off your arse and make a review yourself.
>>6289924Then give Soundwave to some kid.Christ. Is it really that hard?
>>6289967it's more about paying a high price if you just want the minicon.
>>6289111> Vomit on the windowWTFGuess we aren't going to get past the pissing robots level "humor".
>>6289320I have not played but it looks like it's one of those castle building games.If it is I can understand why it's getting old, I did Age of Empired for a while and eventually everything was an overpriced 24 hour upgrade. There wasn't even a remotely affordable path to pay to play either since $5 basically finished one building.
>>6289994It's RID, chances they'll reuse the minicon mold for something else are pretty good.
>>6289891Potential Ehobby exclusive.
>>6288375I feel you, man. Andy Wildman was great, but he made the boys too human.Geoff Senior FTW.
This week was the Beijing International Film Festival and Paramount Pictures was present at the event,they showed to us an China exclusive trailer,it was like 2:26 minutes long.Now I will describe the all new footage:The trailer opens with Optimus landing on what it looks like to be Cybertron then we have the Paramount logo,the next shot is narrated by Anthony Hopkins:"It started as a legend,one of the greatest of all" and we see silver knight Optimus Prime and old movie version Megatron ,Optimus has a sword and a shield(the shield looks more like human shield) with the Decepticon logo in "V" and Megatron has a sword and an Decepticon flag,the logo is in "V",they look at each other,then we move on and we see a lot of cybertronian knights,the background looks like Cybertron with green?Pretty weird,then we get some sort of ship floating in space,it has in his interior the allspark that looks very different,we get some shots of the WW2 and there are transformers too,more knight shots,we see a lot of ships going to Earth,the planet thing that looks like it's uniting? Transforming?Weget a glimpse of what looks like to be The Fallen,we see Barricade at the Junkyard with other Decepticons,an shot of Hot Rod where he saves Vivian and the trailer ends with Optimus vs Megatron scene from the last trailer but longer.It was cool,it might be the best one yet.Feel free to ask me any questions.
>>6289891Enjoy your titans return warpath
>>6285815I'm getting worried myself brother. Quakewave or whatever the prepaint is called can eat a box of cunts, and the Last Knight stuff is already showing up at my stores but NOT this wave.
>>6289891It would be better to do a full-on G2 homage with a tank-front chest that folds down for tank mode with a new hinge. Unfortunately he'd be too small to scale with anything.
