Wow. All they had to do was just make the legs able to move forward and it would've been a nice little cheapo Optimus. Why would they do this? Also the tolerances are so laughable not even a KO would be this bad, I think.

...I still like it for some reason. As shitty as it was. Waste of $5. Yet I still like it. Fuck. I even carved the blockages off the ball joints on the hips and it still barely moves forward or back with the legs thanks to the fucked hip design they gave this thing.

This, they should have just made it roundy and obfuscated without any bizarre indiscernible sculpt inside that makes it look like a person being chocked to death on a grocery shopping bag. That's just terrible design.

Someone should try to reissue the old transformers comics.
I've been reading them and they helped me realize why the old geewun designs are better than any modern version; they are more versatile in that they can look goofy and emote but at the same time can turn back and become believable as fighters from the industrial aspect of the designs.

I'm starting to want some of the MPs, but Takasa Tony because the line seems to be draining the engineering out of mainline and Generations, despite always been more of a movieshit guy due to the golden age of mainline releases that was ROTF and HFTD.
I wish there were more voyager KOs of the line, I have a somewhat strict rule for faction leaders of not being bigger than a voyager and getting any of them could push me into the MUH DICK HUGE tendencies of 3Ps. I don't have the space or the will for it.

He's still a pretty fun and decent tiny-sized G1 Prime desu. Even if his poseability is terrible, the robot is nonetheless really cool looking and there's a whole world of playability and dioramas waiting for him.

>>6478710
That titanmaster is meant to represent his targetmaster which is all greys-silver as seen here >>6478720 just missing the blue visor, but the issue with >>6478703 is the clear plastic head, that thing is going to break its tiny neck.

If any of the wiki entries on IDW are even half-way honest about their content I doubt I'll enjoy them at all.

Anyway, I've heard speculations that Takara got a deal on clear plastic and just didn't know what to do with it all.

That head is smaller than a grain of rice. It really won't matter in hand.
>>
>>6478800
>Cartoon head
Far from it, thats clearly just a female head because of the female master and his chest doors look like crap closed, they're obviously are meant to be only in open position, also wasted oportunity with the engines not screwing them to the masters avoiding the headmaster gimmick, we have Prime masters on tha way this could work as the new gimmick preview.
>>
>>6478804
The heads are fine.


>>6478807
The female Headmaster is actually the comic head, and the closed chest doors actually have sculpted details that match the comic version.

And people disappointed themselves expecting Powermasters. Their star of Masterforce, Ginrai didn't get one, no way in hell Overlord would. Even if the engines are removable, it's doubtful they will make PotP engines that actually look like Mega and Giga.

This time it's TR Windblade. Magnificent figure until I was almost done transforming her. Well, I couldn't finish transforming her because her left leg just wouldn't bend.

Repairing her was... a bitch. You have two screws to remove. One at the hip, one at the feet. So far, so good... until you realise that both halves of the leg are GLUED together in the middle! I had to force it open. I managed to break off just the glue and the pegs were safe.

It now work perfectly fine, but the bot mode will have the "inner hollows" of a leg on the outside

The worst thing is that Hasbro now DEMAND that we send the figure back for replacement. And of course, they wont have a Windblade so they'll give me something random.

As for Returning it to the Toys R Us, I fear to have another misassembled Windblade and have to do the repairs all over again.

Meh, I guess I'm stuck with it. Could be worse, but come the fuck on, Hasbro...

I thought it was just a miss assembly. But it was the part that was wrong all along.

My TR Triggerhappy had two right "sled guns" making impossible to combine them. So I contacted Hasbro for a replacement. The process was lengthy and it too ages for the replacement to arrive... in the form of TR Twinferno. Still, I didn't had to send Triggerhappy back so eh, free figure!

I thought I could keep my Windblade and get a random. However, I now must send Windblade back because Hasbro's policies have changed. So, I rather keep my imperfect but working TR Windblade.

By the Way, call me a noob but is "Getting CHANG'D" The new slang word for one get screwed by QC? Where this come from?

MP Cheetor is a lot more fun when you have all his joints loosened so it doesn't feel like he's breaking when you articulate him. I still can't get this fucking neck hinge loosened at all though, I'm really sick of having his head pop off the ball joint if you try to make him look up.

Takara seriously needs to work on their tolerances/clearances. Most of their tight joints lately are only tight because they don't test anything with paint on it.

TR Soundwave and the 3 "cassettes" if you make a sacrifice. Astrotrain seems not worth buying with that 11 step transformation

>>6479006

Both are very good figures. It just depend on what character you like the best.
But if you already have a "classic" Soundwave that is SUPERIOR like the G1 or the MP, you may want to skip it because he'll bring nothing new.

Astrotrain however, is unique enough to be a sure purchase no matter what other Astrotrains you may already have.

Prowl says Tarn alone was as strong as any Phase Sixer and even more powerful than Fort Max. Roberts adding in that info is retarded.


>Seeing Megatron wipe them all out was pretty satisfying though
No it was the most unsatisfying thing he's ever written. He built the DJD up since way back in the text story Bullets from Last Stand of the Wreckers. That was YEARS ago. Then four years of mtmte hyping them up only to die like a bunch of pussies in four panels to Megatron magic. I cancelled my subscription after that it was so unbelievably retarded.

HotRod's not a bad representation of him, it's just that Takara's coming up with a better version.

I doubt I'd have the dozens of dollars for Takara Hot Rod, even less so with respect to the aftermarket

His arms don't seem too terrible whereas the non-prominent spoiler is slightly disappointing

The blockhead is sort of compensated by her pretty face, although the varying proportions between her arms and thighs are a bit concerning

Fuck, I'll have to get both don't I


Also does anyone know how sales/returns work at TRU? If they have coupons for 2-for-1 deal for purchases, and I get like two Hot Rods - or two Getaways or whatever from the miserable selection they have, can I bring the receipt and swap one for a Windblade?

The stickers are not the problem.

The problem with Broadside is the fact out of the 3 deck covered by stickers, 2 of the them have the landing deck painted.

If they want to save money they shouldn't paint the landing deck at all so when people remove the sticker they would have a perfectly plastic dark deck. But no, we ended up with a half painted deck.
It is like they doing thing out of spite or something.

No it just has better alt modes (as opposed to the flying brick), no forced gimmick, updated weapons of the original, two bot modes depending on your preferences and actually looks imposing.

Alright, I finally finished Regeneration One. Time for a mini-review.
The art is shit. REALLY shit. I'm pretty sure Wildman and Guido aren't usually this bad I'm assigning the blame to the inkers and colorists. As there are four arcs so I'll rate them individually.

>Loose Ends
Top-tier stuff here. If you hate this you're just contrarian. 9/10

>Natural Selection
Feels like filler. You could repurpose the Hasbro mold Autobot HMs as Scorpy's clones/corrupted 'bots. 6/10

>Destiny
Balls-to-the-wall excitement starring Bludgeon. Ultra Magnus gets to be a real badass here, which is nice. Reading flow is a bit fucky though because of issue #0. I want a Blitz Engine toy. 8/10

>The War to End All Wars
I like G2. I like Jhiaxus in G2. I don't like Jhiaxus here, he's shit and he jobs hard. He's just here to pad things out until we get to the REAL bad guy, the Dark Matrix. The ending is rushed and nonsensical and the multiversal fuckery doesn't help. UM continues being badass. And Botanica cameos at the end for some reason. 4/10

So, why was this mold universally hated again? I'll have to agree the wings are a little intrusive in robot mode but that's literally the only flaw I can find. The overall design is solid, the transformation is simple and yet incredibly effective, and holy fuck, these have to objectively be the single best jet modes in any Transformers figures. The sculpt quality is beyond outrageous and it has all sorts of absurd details from hatches to balljointed thrusters and airbrakes and an openable nosecone and even a pair of motherfucking functional stabilizer flaps.

Even most model kits don't go as far as having this much detail, the amount of effort that was put into this mold is genuinely staggering. The jet mode alone is more than worth it.

Are the conehead versions worth getting? The fact that they're limited to 2000 pieces each makes me feel like I should urgently buy them while they still last but the cartoon-accurate vehicle modes don't seem to translate as well as the regular models, perhaps because they don't turn into realistic F-15s in the first place. On a sidenote, I do remember feeling the same way about the original MP Seekers and they sure as hell feel like actual kick-ass jets in person mode though.

idunno, PCC was one of the nichest niche lines due to its release time, strange place in fiction, and being all failed OC combiners nobody asked for; and the third party planes/tanks were fiddly, expensive, and had those amazing third party scary tolerances that make you think you are going to break something for just picking up the figure.
I don't think they failed from a lack of demand for old timey vehicle modes.

Dirt Boss is sometimes a honorary Constructicon for whatever reason. I remember buying ROTF Dirt Boss over Deadlift because his character was basically a union leader.

>"Why are there models. Why."
>"Not only for scale-reference, but I felt the unlikely-novelty of sex-appeal gave it an edge at the time. I was initially gonna just set a couple of Barbies on the shoulders for scale-reference, but my friend suggested I have real girls pose with him, and I liked the idea so much I went ahead & did it, it was fun. Even thereafter, so many people thought the girls were photoshopped in there, despite the original toy displayed in the back of it. Not everybody liked the idea, but was generally accepted a lot more than not. Some people got offended by it & maybe thought it was a little sexist, but oh well, can't please everybody!"

>So, why was this mold universally hated again?

Because it's really fucking bad. The jet mode IS nice because that was clearly the main focus, the robot mode on the other hand has wings that like to pop off (not sure if the coneheads have more secure wings), a chest that doesn't stay together in any way, it has almost no useful hip articulation because there's too much kibble in the way and the feet are a literal joke that make posing the robot mode next to impossible

>it has almost no useful hip articulation because there's too much kibble in the way and the feet are a literal joke that make posing the robot mode next to impossible
True, which does suck.

>the robot mode on the other hand has wings that like to pop off (not sure if the coneheads have more secure wings), a chest that doesn't stay together in any way
The only one I have is the Hasbro Skywarp and he doesn't have any of these issues. Maybe you just got a faulty one?
>>
>>6480339
Depends on the version he has, I know the V2 Seekers have cockpits that don't lock well in Robot mode. I'm pretty sure Hasbro Skywarp was a V1.
>>
>>6480339
Wings poping off easily isn't a ubiquitous issue but still a pretty common one. No MP11 mold has a chest that stays together well though.
>>
>>6480339
I can concur with that anon that my Sunstorms wings have a weak connection to the back, and whenever I move either arm up, the whole chest moves up with it.

Well, fuck, not an easy task but guess I'll try.

>Henkei Hound
Practically flawless in both modes, absolutely fantastic design choices that do represent the perfect modernized G1 design, even the accompanying Hound is neat despite being somewhat nonsensical.

>Generations Kup
Still my favorite interpretation of Kup, everything about him just looks badass. The shotgun in particular is a genius primary weapon for a cranky old 'bot.

>TR Triggerhappy
Preaching the choir here, basically an all-around tightly designed figure even while being made under the limitations of modern Hasbro. He just sort of manages to look perfect in all poses and weapon configurations.

Other honorable mentions:
>Classics Bumblebee, charming despite not holding the test of time all that well
>Classics Seekers, still a tight mold in my book despite the limited articulation
>TF1 Bonecrusher, truly an engineering masterpiece for such a small scale

>heard TR Perceptor wasn't very good
>pick it up
>it's great
The transformation joints in the legs are a little too easy to fold when I'm just trying to pose it given their location, but otherwise it's pretty great.

It even feels solid for its size, and the tampo details on the sides of the legs are a great touch. The head is a fucking nightmare to get off, though. I still don't like the actual Titan Master gimmick.
>>
How difficult would it be to pin a joint? It really annoys me how some headmaster's have unpinned hips, they always end up completely floppy so they're basically unable to post (not that you could pose headmasters much to begin with, but still)

-NOTHING in Robot mode locks together
-No waist swivel
-Feet that don't keep it standing upright
-Scope is so big it restricts head movement, doesn't lock in any mode
-Microscope mode doesn't like to hold together at the arm-leg tabs
-No storage for the titan master, doesn't lock into the tray
-Can't hold the guy in a sniper pose very well

Are you an Asian?

>-NOTHING in Robot mode locks together

But the joints are tight. Theres nothing that needs a lock you mong.

>-Feet that don't keep it standing upright

Maybe if your shitty house isn't level. Also you can flip out the GIGANTIC treads in the back to give him massive heels that will keep him upright even if your house is the leaning tower of Piza.

>-Scope is so big it restricts head movement, doesn't lock in any mode

Literally on a hinge so you can get it out of the way. Same style hinge as Hardhead, even, with even more range than Hardhead's.


>-Microscope mode doesn't like to hold together at the arm-leg tabs

Are you hamhanding it? It plugs right in and holds securely.

>-No storage for the titan master, doesn't lock into the tray. Can't hold the guy in a sniper pose very well

True.
