Aw come on, the old thread is still on page 1 and it's not even at bump limit yet. And there's like 12 transformers threads on the board now. Could you be a little more patient? It's the same impatience that leads to hasbrocucks buying hasbro shit before Takara announces their superior releases.

Agreed. The Orion Pax gimmick is neat on the new one, but that's about all it has going for it. Otherwise the main Optimus design doesn't have enough of a new spin, and that truck mode is definitely fucked.

The Classics mold still holds up really nicely. Only thing it really needs is gestural hands over the old blob-with-weapon-hole style. People pick at the arm "kibble" but it's hardly an issue. Holds tons of poses really well, and the voyager size is very appropriate.

When was the last time they used the VF-1, "fold jet in half" transformation with the arms forming the rear of the jet? I'd rather they reuse that if they are going to be lazy. It's not very parts intensive either, G2 Hooligan executed it despite the size.

The main problem with her is the fact they want her to still look distinctly female. That being said, there's nothing to stop them from giving her arms cuffs, having the fist fold away into a turbine, and melding that to the wings so at least they can say they tried. Shit, even having the shoulders to mimic an engine and hiding the arms inside the body would be better.

Are there any third-party covers for these disgusting chairs? Baffling how they can engineer a swiveling plate for Hardhead's shoulder cannon (something that must have cost them nearly nothing) and then ignore the concept entirely in succeeding releases.

Let me break it down, say the gun that came with tr scourge, how its got that hollow cavity.

That's the chair he's talking about, same for guns that combine that have a hollow cavity like tr triggerhappy's set, those are meant to be gunner chairs

One shame as I last said in response to another anon who pointed it out, the lack of the orange press pump for the cannon, it COULD have been homages via coloring the titan master cannon extension orange, but instead they opted to have a more cohesive color scheme.

I totally missed it being attached last time, takara seems to hate that thing seeing how it just rest on the back like pic related

Also interesting fact, thanks to the anon who said it was "arch force" megatron.

Turns out our "g2 megatron" is actually based off an european variant who was actually named Archforce, so its...not a megatron.

More annoyingly so there are no g2 symbols on the main surface areas and yet spiffy sticker details are present.

Could have at least fit those in somewhere rather than giving him the random g1 symbol, but there might be hope, if Japanese autist can change how legends kup is colored maybe they can fix g2 megatron, no faction symbol would be more accurate

Wrong.

>Like his wavemate Sureshot, Archforce is a curiosity. Presumably Hasbro's European offices didn't want as many Optimus Prime and Megatron toys on the shelves as the North American branch did, so they renamed the Hero toys of the two characters and altered any decals that bore their original names.

That's what is wrong about the previous post. The mold was designed as Megatron and they just changed the name in Europe, not the other way around.

Better association, sometimes a better adherence can make a mold stand out or even highlight detailing that may of drowned in lesser decos, take generations bomber megatron, takara did him right by painting in those panels not only matching his idw apperance but also highlighting the surface detail.

In my case I go for what looks better for me, if its a mp insta-buy, but for the shelf retail I decide what simply looks better, sometimes even a hasbro figure can win out case in point misfire in titan returns pops more than his takara version, even with the inaccurate "gun" he has

I just find it so weird that Optimus fucking Prime has had so few legit attempts at an updated G1 styled figure. I mean, MP 10 is near perfection, but for CHUG enthusiasts, pretty much every version of Optimus in the last 10 years has been non-G1, or the victim of a debilitating gimmick.

Let's be honest. Anyone looking for a good, CHUG scale Optimus should just buy that Voyager sized KO of MP 10 I've seen floating around. Argument over.

Closest is one I didnt expect to like : I have the blades from that weird protectobot set they released a few years ago. It's a repaint of Blademaster, often considered to be one of the worst figures to come out of ROTF. I like it. The transformation is pretty interesting (and not as fiddly as some people make it to be) and the robot mode is so weird but not in a bad way imho.

Other transformers I got and disliked, I still dislike. (Universe Cheetor, ROTF Arcee...)

He's fine and he works well, but there's nothing special about his engineering unless you're stricken by the novelty of his torso flip. If the sculpt had been just a little different he would've looked absolutely horrendous since the arms don't really do anything except disguise that they're arms.

So I picked some of this stuff up from my local hobby shop a few weeks ago at the staff's recommendation to do some mods to MPM04. Namely adding a few more loadbearing tabs made of scrap ABS to hold that fucking hood down.

This shit is absolutely fucking magic. I've been able to repair so many figures from my childhood, even fixing loadbearing joints and tabs. Like holy fuck, how did I not know about this stuff. Super easy to apply too, sets and evaporates incredibly quickly so unwanted bleedover into nearby joints is easily avoidable by working them for a minute or so while the excess evaporates.

I adore Triggerhappy to bits, but he would have been much better if the engineers found a way to incorporate his head into the transformation without forcing the bullshit Headmaster gimmick on him. The resulting blocky head really doesn't help.
>>
>>6529908
>Like holy fuck, how did I not know about this stuff

Didn't have the /tg/ background where plastic cement is the only way to do business, probably. It just melts plastic together, thats why it's so strong of a bond, because it's fusing the two bits together, not gluing them together like superglue.
>>
>>6529928

The whole line was Headmasters: The Line. You can bet your dumb ass that the head would've just been hidden by the cockpit if it wasn't a headmasters only line.

>>6529917

Also every time one of you salty fucks whines about TR it makes me laugh, so keep doing that, please. I can't wait for PotP to come out, so the whining quadruples because now you've got combiners AND headmaster tech all over the place, in every figure.
>>
>>6529936
>now you've got combiners AND headmaster tech

It's barely noticeable that they're combiners and they're not forced into having cube shaped partsforming heads anymore so no. Stay delusional TRfag.

Unsure, never used the Tamiya cement. This is my firest experience with any form of solvent glue. FWIW, the way this stuff applies, you hold the joint together before applying it, paint the glue over the joint and let it soak in. Sets in ~10s, reasonably solid in an hour, completely cured in 24. Everything I've used ABS wise has held rock hard except HFTD Brimstone's shoulder ball sockets, which I fear may be suffering from early stages of GPS given I picked him up off my shelf after a few years of sitting and the sockets had fractured on their own. Same thing happened to one of ROTF Prime's feet pin joints, which seems like the same plastic. I'm a bit worried.

>>6529918
They're different products, the guy at the store said that plastic weld was for different plastics and bondene was for same plastics. Some research says the active ingredient in bondene is dichloromethane, while the active in Plastic Weld is methyl ethyl ketone. I'm trying to find out what the Tamiya cement is but I can't quickly.

>>6529930
Nope, up until this point I've only used Testors red tubes, which didn't work all that well for heavy load bearing joints.

Says the guy that spouts this much vitriol over an unreleased toy because it doesn't cater to his tastes. Not only that, but this character already has a nice Masterpiece for those who want an accurate representation of it so there's absolutely no reason for being this mad.

I wish there was a way I could force Hasbro to design transformers the way I want. Shell and kibble are atrocities and unless they serve an aesthetic purpose (wings, capes etc) they should be punishable in a design. Also the designs should move away from the current boxy look (but not completely when it works with the character) and I'd like to see some innovative transformations like the japanese Beast Wars had.

>Can you legitimately tell that this toy combines just by looking at it?

I guess I wasn't paying enough to those threads, I thought the only combiner was Volcanius.

>>6529993
If Moonracer's a combiner then Firestar is probably a retool, meaning a pair of slim limbs by the looks of Moonracer. I wonder who the other two would be? I like Victorion but some more fem-looking combiner gals would be very nice.

>>6529998

The not-inherently-awful colour scheme looks like fucking toothpaste when applied in such a simplistic and uniform fashion, which robs the constituent robots of any individuality and makes them all look the same, which exacerbates the fact that there are two helicopters that are practically identical.

If ANYONE should be stoked for potp prime, it's people who already own classics prime. You don't need a new classics prime, you want a fun new g1 prime.
So you got g1 prime as energon fatty prime in CW, you got him as Laser Prime headmaster triple changer in TR. And now you're getting him with an evolution/supermode in potp.

If classics prime is so good then why would you hate on potp prime? Is it because you were hoping for classics prime withlut shitty hands, shitty kibble and a fake grill? They won't do it ever.

Yes, but depending on where you are and what you buy it can on occasion end up not being too much more expensive than other options. Also if you live in a dictatorship that likes nailing you with customs they sometimes let you put whatever value you ask for on the package. Just weigh your options before buying anything from them, I'd never go to them first for something.

>>6530404
Regular Hasbro one
>>
>>6530407
That's the flawed design IIRC. It's basically circular on the outside and hexagonal on the inside of the port. The grey plastic is more resistant to stress but it's best you sand down the hfg peg to be safe.

The fixed design is thickened and is circular on the inside as well. I know Megatronia and Baldigus uses that.

It clearly has combiner ports hidden in its knees and the arms are pretty much identical save for the sculpting.
Not sure if it's actually a Silverbolt retool, which also had ports in its knees and blocky arms, but not putting the leg's ports inside the dragon heads was enough to make me drop Abominus altogether. Maybe a turd party will do a good alternative unlike the literal retards who designed Lone Wolf.

I feel really bad for Windblade. That first mold looked really good, but her darn feet were ganked. Takara made her face come alive, too.

RID... the only version of her I find in stores has this horrible face mask, so ugly. I want my Sarah Stone art brought to life, dammit!

Also I'm using the weapons from the T30 Blitzwing. The swords are about the same length, but the T30's is wider. Neither gun is that great though.

>>6530597

Definitely worth. It beats out the T30 on all fronts for me. It has storage for every weapon from both figures oddly enough, at least in jet mode. Haven't tried doing similar in tank.

YES

>they know people want apeface/snapdragon and they'll do it when it makes sense
If they were wrapping their heads thinking of how to integrate the second heads into modern toys this is dumb. They made so much compromises in TR I don't think people would've minded if the animal heads were just integrated into the body itself.

It's because of the execution a bit. G1 Dinobots had surprising amounts of sculpted detail under their clear bits, and sometimes the clear bits would be just a small part on like a hip or something.

The way they talk about the fan polls, immediately dodging scorp and omega, it makes me think trypticon was such a massive blowout that they're unsure about doing either.
We know 2018 will be predaking, and 2019 will need it's own titan class. It seems the rest of the main combiners will all be released in regular waves.
So titan class 2019 is heavily likely to be a retool
Maybe that gives hope for scorpy, but my gut tells me we're getting a unicron in 19 and primus in 20

>12 steps for a legends

The instructions are probably something like "Step 1: move this part, step 2: move it further, step 3: move it again, step 4: finish moving it"
They sometimes do that shit to pad out instructions to make it seem more complex than it really is, or sometimes they just have simple steps that don't really convey easily in a single instruction step.

Still, looks cute though. I think I'll get one to go with my iron dibots

I'm not sure how to say this without sounding like I'm shitposting, but I'm kind of surprised by how not shit everything in PotP seems so far.

Maybe I just find the Dinobots more appealing or something but I really feel like there's a certain quality to everything we've see so far that just wasn't there in CW and TR. This little legends toy alone looks higher quality than any single CW toy I have. Like seriously if I didn't have the packaging for it I would have thought my CW hotspot came from a dollar store.

You got a serious case of "new and shiny=better" there Anon. CW was good except for the filler waves of non-combiners-being-combiners, TR was good outside of a few shining examples of how to fuck up what should be an easy thing (Galvatron being the biggest fuckup), and PotP is just the same as the rest so far. Some good looking figures, and some crap looking ones. We're not getting a major upgrade or downgrade in any way, it's merely the status quo where some figures will be great and others will leave you wondering what the fuck happened that something so bad could ever be wheeled out the door.

I don't mind accurately large trex heads on my grimlocks if they split into two like that.
If we had one where they became the "wings" his g1 was known for, that might be the perfect update.
>>
>>6530873
That's because potm has the luxury of blowing their design budget on a few fan favorites, knowing huge amount of retools we're getting.
Starscream into elita1 jazz into probably 5 or 6 different cars, the decepticon jets are remolds, inferno, and so on.
On top of that, 3 waves of leaders, only 3 molds (no remolding at all) That's fewer than tr (by wave 3 we had 4) and on par with cw (wave 3 had 3 i think)
Considering the potential for repaints in other size classes, this is gonna be a fairly cost effective line.
Especially since its 90% shared engineering.
