Hasbro's MO for a while now has been to release the repaint first. People who just want it for the new toy will bite, and maybe double dip when the "intended" use of the mold comes out. I'm kind of surprised third parties are only starting to do it now.

I've got enough primes to last a goddamned lifetime and I'm always down for a nemesis version though, so I'm probably down.

None yet. A lot of 3P's have moved away from the whole upgrade/optional part thing. It's really only PE and at most 2 or 3 other groups doing stuff, and their releases are few and far between. It's not like CW where there was a new hand/foot set every other week and various upgrade plates and guns and whatever.

I don't have an answer to your question, but your situation is pretty common with a lot of 3P stuff. Unless something is complete garbage, it tends to be gone pretty fast. Only garbage tends to stick around (and thats why you see the same shit every time any site has a "sale").

Naa, I think PE is given early releases to youtuber for reviews.

I do feel like he's kind of a wasted effort though.

So anywhere from $150 to over $200 mighty American Freedomerica Eagledollars for a $45 Leader figure when theres at least 2 3P PMP's in the works that look amazing, AND will have articulation and engineering to justify their price tags?

I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised by this guy. The quality is leaps and bounds over constructor bots so far. Yes the kibble is a bit obnoxious but, doesn't look that bad in hand. Also the pay off of having nice clean alt and arm modes is worth it. Transformation isn't too complex nor overly simple. Only frustrating part is trying to get things to line up the first go around but I can see it getting easier.

If zeta can continue this quality with the rest of the combaticons and their upcoming aerialbots I see a bright future for them.

The first link is just a KO voyager sized mold. It doesn't seem to have any changes except more paint apps, more in line with the leader paint I think.

The second is a Oversived KO version of the same mold. (I'm glad they chose to move along with the voyager mold, not a big fan of the leader)

They look like they are made by different companies though. The Oversized one Is Wei Jang and they included diecast pieces and are coming out with a 3rd release version with a helmet gimmick and improved engineering with I think the hands and maybe something else.

I still can't choose between Despotron and the TT Megatron. MP-36 extreme cartoon accuracy is both a good and bad thing in my opinion. I might wait for an Optimus v.3 because so far MP-36 and MP-10 they just dont look that good together where Despotron works better with MP-10, in my opinion.

>>
>>6477223
TT megs is good but you really don't want to transform him due to very easy paint chipping.

Desp is much more cohesive looking but has a less accurate gun and bot mode. Desp is also more solid and has less poor tolerances/scary transformation steps. Desp is also around 100 bucks cheaper but has less accessories.

It depends on how much 200-230 USD is to you. I'd say megs is worth it if you're okay with not transforming him ever.

I've taken the liberty of circling the problem area. And before you think I'm trolling, I'm not. He's fragile as fuck because he's basically a bunch of floating panels on a plastic skeleton made of little rods. He looks great but thats it. Should've gotten the GT one.
>>
>>6477525
I've pretty much only shopped TFS and from what I've seen, they've always been quick to ship what was in stock. The only time they aren't is because, by default, they will take your orders as they are when you place them and won't ship until all items are in stock. If something is in stock (and not from their "vintage" warehouse) and is in the same order as a preorder item, they won't ship it until the preorder item is also in stock. You can always email them later and ask them to split the order but that's how they operate.

HOWEVER, they do tend to take a bit longer to actually GET the items in stock. As an example, they were one of the last sites to get Grinder in stock after he released.

But yeah, BBTS is more notoriously slow from literally every shopping experience I've had with them. Slow to get the items and then slow to ship them. I don't get where the TFS hate meme came from though. Their customer service has always been great as well and quick to ship replacement/missing parts whenever I needed them and for free to boot. I like 'em, personally.
>>
>>6477556
>I don't get where the TFS hate meme came from though

Never used TFS myself, but the reason I haven't is because I've seen a lot of people complaining they list items as in stock when they're not actually in stock to secure orders, and then taking longer to ACTUALLY get things in stock than other places, plus apparently exceptionally slow shipping at times, especially around any sort of holiday.

BBTS is just kinda slow in general but they're usually the guys with everything in stock when others have long since run out.

Never tried TCP but they're supposedly good.

I use toydojo a lot, they're super fucking quick. Every order I've placed with them has gone out same day unless it's a preorder item (or has a preorder item grouped with it). Downside is they're a VERY small store so carry really limited stock, I've noticed.

Hasn't happened to anything I've ordered before so I dunno what to tell ya. Honestly, I think a lot of people just don't realize that they have something on preorder in the same order because like I said, they won't ship until all items are in stock OR you email them and ask them to split the order.

I really wanna see the sales figures on the MPs since they've gone full-retard on cartoon pandering. Like, a lot of people obviously bought Megatron because he's fucking Megatron, but I feel like when we get back to ho-hum characters like Sunstreaker, they're alienating more buyers than not. I mean, were there any geewunners who weren't buying the MP line beforehand? I really can't see how this change in aesthetic could garner them extra sales, but going by the complaints I've heard in this thread and the official /tfg/ threads, it seems like a LOT of people have no interest in Sunbowstreaker, here.

You are seeing a lot of negativity from western fans who hate the cartoon and/or only care about good toys, and not representations of childhood favorites.

Oh, it's cool engineering, yeah. But it's also way too complex and fragile as a motherfucker. They probably could've done it simpler than they did and still achieve a good looking result that was pretty accurate.
>>
>>6477806
I'm pretty sure they're doing fine. Megatron sold out almost immediately and apparently despite his flaws there was still enough demand for him to warrant a re-release, and last I checked Sunstreaker was pre-sold out on HLJ and AmiAmi, but that might've changed. I think they know what they're doing. Sure Americans don't seem to like these toys, but the Japanese must love them, and that's all Takara cares about.

That's honestly my biggest issue with the set. Every other representation had the cab significantly bigger and making up the bulk of the chest. In MT's case, they made the cab a legends-sized figure, thus giving a smaller vehicle, smaller robot, and it's barely ab-sized when forming the chest. Basically, it's too tiny and doesn't appropriately scale with anything unless you want to fudge it into your Legend collection but he'll be super huge in PMOP mode comparatively.

Maybe? It's been a while since I've seen the scale for it so maybe he will scale perfectly with Legend collections. Still, my point is that with the cab and actual robot being so tiny, Legends is the only scale this thing properly fits into to any extent. I don't really collect Legends too heavily so that is enough to turn me off. It looks cool but not something I need.
>>
>>6478317
Well in the first five minutes he hamhanded the figure twice. Throughout the transformation he kept having trouble due to hams for hands and transforming it on camera so he could not get a good look at areas he needed to. Many of the viewers are probably blaming the toy for that and not him.
>>
>>6478522

God Ginrai (ie: PMP with the Godbomber) is combiner sized in the lore. He's about the size of Star Saber, who is about the size of Liokaiser. So he's pretty fucking massive. Star Saber with his lion buddy is a bit bigger than even that.

So yeah they should tower over regular sized 'bots. Remember, Optimus only goes up to like, Devy's knee.
>>
>>6478464
CW Shockwave has better arm articulation and better knees. That's about it though.

Still, if anyone calls CW Shockwave better than Bridge Watcher it's 100% them either not wanting to replace their toys or them not wanting to buy 3P.

Lose waist swivel. Loose thigh swivels too but it hardly matters with how sturdy his hips are.
>>
>>6478708
I'm not entirely sure about that. His heels still seem to have something round on them which would match up with where the small wheels were. Plus, his larger wheels were behind his knee-caps on his upper thighs so it's possible they're just hidden in the shot PE posted. He still has something hanging off of his legs around where the wheels would be so who knows.

They certainly seem to be taking far more liberties with Megs than they did with Optimal Optimus though as far as screen/original figure accuracy goes. The legs and wings in particular are totally different.
>>
>>6478664
At like 1/4 the price, CW Soundwave shouldn't really have better ANYTHING, but it does. At that kind of price difference, I can easily see people preferring the cheaper one. Bridge watcher might be better, but not 30 dollars better. I've heard the same sentiment about the iron factory seekers.

>>6478820
>detail in the shoulder circles prevent use of proper-sized Maximal stickers or 3D printed caps

That's honestly the most aggravating thing about beast gorira to me. It's like perfect effect deliberately designed his shoulder's to make putting faction stickers on them as difficult as possible.

Bridge Watcher is $24 though. It's twice the price of the CW figure sure, but it's not $40 like other IF stuff.

It honestly baffles me how all of these PMOPs need to end up covered with so many visible panels, seem lines and transformation joints in alt mode. We've seen plenty of Primes at every scale that don't end up this messy and it's not like the ability to slot into the armor needs a lot of extra engineering. it's pretty much just alt mode with the legs folded up, so why is this so tough for them to pull off?

Perfect Effect seems to have the best effort so far and it's still not perfect thanks to those visible ball joints in alt mode but it's still better than FH or MT's offerings. It's just a shame that it only works with the official toys.

How much do you reckon i could hock a microblaze + SDCC foc bruticus for? I paid $300 for it last year because i was desperate and it was the only one on the market, do you reckon some other fool would be willing to go that high?
I still adore his aesthetic but $200-250 can get so much more playability from 2 planet x releases.

Three upgrade sets now, anon. Fucking THREE.

This so much. PMOP/God Ginrai shouldn't be hard to do, but no one is getting it right. Fans Hobby can't seem to get the trailer right, either - it's not tall enough and it sits waaay too far back.

MakeToys has gone for a very stylised design and theirs is also quite small. Which is fine, but it's not really a Masterpiece-style God Ginrai, is it now?
>>
>>6480070
There are a bunch of reviews out there already, anon. Learn to search.

I've heard there are some loose-ish joints but it's generally fine. MAAS Toys seem to have good customer service, and while this is arguably a bit pricey for a Deluxe-sized toy, it's something I personally really want to get.

Also, the hips are colour-matched properly on the final product. The one in your picture is a testshot.
>>
>>6480462
I would agree with you if you stopped trying to make "Powerpuff Jinrai" a thing. Fucking hell anon, it's time to stop. You need some help.
>>
All this talk of PE's Beast Gorira...
I honestly just don't want to touch it when most people are touching themselves over it and anyone being actually objective are like "hey, there are some parts that don't tab in anywhere, and it has some loose joints".

Combined, those two responses just make me never want to buy it. I'd love a new Optimal Optimus but I'd rather just wait a decade for a new one if I have to at this point.
>>
>>6480675
>MakeToys has gone for a very stylised design and theirs is also quite small. Which is fine, but it's not really a Masterpiece-style God Ginrai, is it now?

To be fair, the MT one is also in their Cross Dimension line.
>>
>>6480698
Oh, definitely, but that was my point - I'm totally fine that they went that route but it's part of their Cross Dimension line, so it wasn't meant to be a Masterpiece-style God Ginrai to begin with, and so our only options currently are Fans Hobby or Perfect Effect + Hasbro PMOP/TT God Ginrai.

You've already been told about mould release grease, and you've already been informed multiple times that the anon with the problem had non-mould release grease on his figure. We're talking about two different types of grease, and you apparently don't seem to know anything about either of them, so just stop trying to be a know-it-all when you've already been one-upped multiple times now.

t. another anon who has been watching you causing a moronic shitstorm this whole time.
>>
>>6481178
>>6480171 was right about the mould release agent. What are you even arguing about? That anon literally just summed up what the stuff is and how it works, and why it's not the problem with the first anon's Bridge Watcher.

>>6479203 and >>6480281 made it clear it wasn't a mould release agent, so obviously it had to be something else from the beginning.
>>
What do people think about the MP-style Bruticus options out there?

I'm starting to really like the Unique Toys offering. Their Brawl and Swindle look really good. I wish they were a bit bigger, but still.

There aren't many video reviews up yet though, but if you search them out, you can ignore "Ome9asupreme". Never seen this guy's videos before but I've just watched both his videos on these guys and they're TERRIBLE. I swear he hasn't even played with these toys once before reviewing them. It's 10 minutes of idiocy and fumbling, and a few minutes more of pointless rambling.

If you can't follow a simple conversation, don't bother trying to participate.
>>6480171 said toys weren't greased up except for the mold release grease which is wrong. Every factories producing plastic toys with moving parts uses at least two type of grease, on isn't even a real grease, it's the mold release agent that helps detaching the parts easily from the mold AND THERE'S ANOTHER ONE that's sprayed on the toy for lubrication purpose. Since neither >>6480171 or >>6479203 knew about it, there was no way for them to know what it looks like.
>>
>>6481312
Don't tell me this. I was close to considering it buying from Maketoys themselves at $350, weighing against Quantron at $235 (being shipping inclusive). I have Flypro coming today, and the only other Devastator I'll have is the tiny $40 TFC HerQules that I ordered from BBTS.

I probably have serious problems.

I9 have never once heard about this or come across it being mentioned before ever and all the Iron Factory toys I've ever gotten have arrived completely dry with joints that had zero lubrication of any kind. If there really is some kind of lubricant applied at the factories do you mind at least explaining how you know this and what it looks like so we ALL know for the future?

>>6481380
I've been working with factories producing plastic items for 8 years now. I've visited at least 20, most of them do produce toys at least from times to times (a lot of factories aren't owned by the brand owning the product, they simple produce what they're asked to in each contract they get) and all of them use lubrication on finished product. Even if you don't "feel" the lubricant doesn't mean it's not their. In fact, if there was absolutely no lubricant, your figures would squeek like crazy even if the mold releasing agent was used.

Man, I hate it when companies do this. Imagine if all of that talent, money, and time in making such a good figure went into a better MP Starscream. Instead we got this excellent fucking figure from a shit series, and...An MP Starscream with half hollow wings. Thanks, MT, you fuckfaces.
>>
>>6481740
I'll buy it. We have enough iterations of G1 shit to satiate sperglords, give us interesting designs that haven't had high quality figures yet.
>>
>>6481747

But we haven't ever gotten a good MP 'Scream. The officials have been universally trash and there hasn't been a single good 3P one either.
>>
>>6481747
except these are still characters that are derivative of their g1 counterparts especially starscream. how about more original characters like Demolishor, Overload, Landmine, Snowcat, Override, Evac and Thunderblast.
>>
>>6481740
I really like it when they do this because they're just making good toys. That's the point.

I do wish he was smaller though
>>
>>6481740

Honestly their MP Starscream appears to have pretty much the same level of incredible effort applied to it. Like for both they figured out how to get an ab crunch and waist swivel into designs that any other company would have just given up on. I don't know what people's fucking problem is with the back of the wings, I'm literally autistic and I don't even care about that lmao. I honestly didn't know that was a sort of thing anyone would ever care about at all until people started freaking out about it on TFW. It barely looks any different from if they had filler pieces. Personally it's one of my most anticipated 3P figures ever, seems like a basically perfect G1 Starscream to me.

Not him, but I honestly just like the Maketoys style. They look like fun figures in their own right. Dump Truck especially just looks like a badass bruiser even if he isn't accurate to anything. I just like figures that are articulated, have a nice aesthetic, and won't be replaced by another company attempting the same thing like with MP toys.

If course, I may just have shit taste since I have UW Devastator and TFC Perseus and love both of them for what they are.

Those are some DAMN spacious shelves. Nice, Anon. I wish my shitty, tiny, cramped apartment at least let us put up some fucking shelving or something. I'm stuck with cramped book cases.

>>6481980

I pose all of my stuff on my book shelves except for two layers. Those layers are my "fiddling" layers, of figures I pull down often enough to mess with that I don't bother putting them in poses on the shelves because all I'd do is knock down others when removing them. I'd take a picture, but the lighting is way too shit in here to actually get any sort of good picture.

They've had some decent articulation in the past but lately they have been knocking it out of the fucking park with Cross Dimension and now both Meteor molds.

Far above and beyond the articulation I got out of the individual Green Giant bots or Gentoo
>>
>>6482233
Nah. Most people are just autistic competitions who want every character from their childhood cartoons to check them off a list and stand them on a tiny shelf, shoulder-to-shoulder in brick-like poses for maximum packing efficiency.
>>
>>6481374
Floppy, arm joints will not hold that pose without glue, and if you do glue it, the joints are likely to tighten too far and shear off... No heels, flimsy toes, bad color layout, can not hold any 5mm weaponry, and forget about swords.

What makes the shelf-ster-fuck meme the default for transfags? G1?
>>
>>6482359

I'm gonna assume it stems from Transformers collections usually being both 1: Insanely fucking huge because it's an old-ass toy line with a million characters from A-listers to Z-listers, and 2: There being so much shit hanging off the average TF toy, even 3P ones, that, combined with the numerous nature of most TF collections, makes it a nightmare to pose any of them due to all of the shit sticking out from them at odd angles, because moving one bit on a shelf will knock over another 5 if your shelves are crowded to the hilt.

Grow up. They're going a G1 Starscream too, and yeah, the wings are fucking shit (but don't bring it up on TFW or people will dogpile you, as they've already done to others), but they're still doing it.

It's awesome they even bothered to make Galaxy Force/Cybertron Starscream, not to mention the fact that it looks really friggin' good, and I sure as hell want one.

Not according to anons in the new thread
>>
>>6481796
Because there's no good fucking reason for an expensive figure to have hollow wings?

And the excuse of "BUT YOU DON'T DISPLAY IT FROM THE BACK OR THE SIDE OR WHATEVER" is so fucking stupid. If all you want is to look at the front of a Transformer forever, why not just print out a picture on a piece of paper? They're three-dimensional toys. Preferably, they look good from more than one angle, especially when they cost an arm and a leg.
>>

Every excess of grease will look like that genius. The only difference would be the color.
