Old thread (>>6566129) is past bump limit. Continue here.

Post Transformers with drills.
>>
I want to fucking slaughter whoever had the bright idea to suprise release fucking Grotusque on HTS with only a few dozen in stock.

You release the other two team members and then fuck up and make the last guy an extremely limited exclusive.

Not only that but a guy who I wanted because I love freakish transformers.


Hasbro will rue this day.

Literally couldn't even throw him into my cart before he sold out, anon. Thats some bullshit right there. Why the fuck they don't just do shit like Japanese companies-Take preorders, then produce extra based on how many preorders you get-Fucking baffles me.

Why the west is so fucking behind the east at all times in terms of convienence and technology is fucking disgusting.
>>
>>6567356
I thought they were gonna at TRU and this was just an early release. Weird though how there was no prior announcement and the orders shipped/arrived in like 30 hours.
>>
>>6567357

Don't worry, I'm sure that will be a $90+ Taktom mall exclusive that only ships to Japanese postal addresses like Batimus Prime and Megalligator's head was.
>>
>>6567359
It’s more the markets are so different. The west craves special snowflake status. A limited edition toy offer makes those losers feel super magical. It’s why scalpers even exist in the western markets, some retard will blow triple coat on shit just to say they have the oh so rare pos. East doesn’t have that issue in any level of the same. Hell to them it’s fuck up to want an item out of rarity alone.

If it weren't for the fact he's literally falling apart at his joints I'd say this would be the perfect Scorponok, but he's in such bad condition (and AFAIK every version suffers from joints that break over time) that we need a better mold. Honestly I'd be OK with a Leader though.
>>
>>6567359
They may pay more but it works out better for collectors. Takara doesn't loose money and fans get a figure that might not've been produced otherwise. It's win-win.
>>
>>6567353

>>6567382
Apparently it's the thinness of those chest panels and not just the plastic quality. Luckily green/red one is still in fine shape but I've considered getting reinforced chest pieces off shapeways.

>>6567444
He feels really clunky next to topspin. The treads either stick out too far forward or backwards depending how you flip them, to the point of actually making him unstable. He feels like the prime flying vehicon where a little bit of kibble can do really bad things to a solid mold.

I'm glad warden decided to give us characters like Sixshot and Galvatron instead of actual fucking headmasters

I actually liked that Sixshot was a Headmaster, it works even better considering his Japanese version was a ninja, and having a human size disguise would make him even more dangerous.

>>6567597
yes putting a miscolored head on a body that is an entirely different color is fine and not ugly as fuck at all

what a great gimmick
>>
>>6567592
It'd be a lot easier if his entire lower half held together properly in beast mode. Dude's tail keeps splitting and I don't even know what the legs are supposed to attach to, if anything.
>>
>>6567598
Just find a headmaster that somewhat aligns with the body in terms of color

Grimlock and Loudmouth are both great on Doublecross or Broadside, for example. Definitely better than the defaults
>>
>>6567601
I like Loudmouth and Hot Rod, myself.
>>
>>6567600
Yeah, that's a pain in the ass for me too. I tend to have him in robot mode these days or just leave him alone and hope he doesn't split
>>
>>6567604
Yeah, Loudmouth is really versatile. Same with Shuffler and (usually) Grimlock/Clobber
>>
>>6567600
I'd imagine that's an issue with Grotusque as well, since he shares the engineering with the legs/tail

I have mine, but Optimus (not the extra parts) has yellow thighs due to storate and fucked up chrome since I forgot to take out his batteries. Magnus is yellowed as fuck (again, due to storage), but everything is accounted for... if only the chrome hadn't faded so hard. Oh yeah, and the wheels because the Hasbro versions wheels were awful.

I was kind of looking forward to at reissue since mine was wasn't in perfect condition, but this definitely puts a damper on things.

Slim, their line looks like it might wrap up with the Jumpstarters and Seaspray, them it will probably go straight to POTP, and they shouldn't delay for too long since they'll end up way behind Hasbro (unless they're planning on doing Unite Warrios V2, in that case you might get a Takara release).

Looking at fortmax upgrade kits, DNA really needed to release seperate hasbro and takara versions for their kits.

Why's that? Doesn't classic scorp have a similar head to the leader classes?

No, leaders use helmets with faces that are larger than normal figures, and Scorponok has a normal head. He'd just look like the Squeezeplay posted earlier.

So yeah, better off using something else.

The knock offs with the antenna? Very QC risky, almost every review I saw one always broke and I see why now that I own them, the torso isn't a perfect casting so many of the joints don't line up from transformation right, I was very careful getting them into shark mode and they havn't left since dude to how much stress was put on the joints. Also you have to glue the antenna on, they do not fit in right.
If you just want some variation on Sharks they are not bad, but 30 bones can get you 3 Hasbro or 2 Takara for the same cost that won't feel like they will warp or break every time you transformer them. Also the transparent gold one just looks tacky in person..

Been thinking about the next takara legends wave, how...will they pull this off?

Legends seaspray is essentially a perfect g1 recreation, I can only see them trying to give him individual eyes like lg rewind (good fucking luck on his headspace) and ditching the toy tampos, the included headmaster (and seaspray I guess) would at most just get more vibrant plastic colors and a dab of paint on sawback, that's it.

But then we get topspin and twintwist, would they really base them on the comics, there is NO g1 show depiction, and...random target masters.

And then what's next, POTP leaders, more mold redeco's, because takara can easily shove what's left into box sets

I've been wondering if they'll skip the Pretender shells as they did with most Titanmaster chibi-bodies (Repugnus was the only one that didn't lost his) I mean most of the Pretender shells we've seen were main characters in Masterforce.

Legends armada starscream?

Yes, they can do a bit of retool work what with the decepticon fembots, but they still have some figures they have yet to touch from generations (straxus) cw (seekers-but that's desperation considering we're getting a new voyager) and tr (getaway, krok, quake etc) so those are cheap options if they just want to pad out the legends line

>Legends armada starscream?
I said they "tend not to bother". Doesn't mean they never do it, but even when they do, it's only when a character is actually supposed to be a straight redeco of another, like with Starscream/Thundercracker. They've done a few, but you're overlooking the dozens of redecos that Takara completely ignored.

I bought both kits.

Hands are alright but they seem to have trouble with various 3P weapons, I don't believe the slots were made to the same tolerances as the official ones.

Gut guns are okay, but they looked dopey on the G1 toy.

Cerebros legs are a good idea but they do not fold flush in head mode, everyone who has had them has the same issue. And if they were going to make new legs to pretty up the head, new forearms with folding hands were needed. Fuck me the G1 toy had folding Hasbro but Hasbro couldn't do this on a "better" toy made 30 years later?

The pelvis was a great idea because using Metroplex's butt with screw holes WAS dumb... but from what I see they gray they used matches no version.

The feet, good idea, but they look awful and bulky and tiling the ankles more than a slight bit looks awful because of the massive gap.


And it's strange seeing so many kits try to go for "G1 accuracy" when much of the details on this toy aren't G1. The Heisenberg gun is literally a recast of the G1 rifle yet the PE gun fits the new aesthetic better. If I wanted a G1 Max I could have got a loose complete Encore for $200 shipped and not bothered with these upgrades, weapons and all that. Plus Hasbro cheaped out so bad on a massive expensive toy you HAVE to buy these kits just to feel complete, while Trypticon is a G1 update proper and comes with 99% of what it should. The small radar dishes? Toyhax made them for their sticker set.

Back before Arcee received her own mold in Generations the original plan was for them to make a new Blurr figure and remold Arcee from that. Hironori Kobayashi made the appeal to design Arcee from the ground up so she got a proper figure and that's what happened. So does anyone think that TR Arcee was planned from the beginning to be made when they decided to make Blurr a headmaster? They got to reuse the mold for 2 characters in a way they intended to years prior AND it resulted in us getting a Headmaster Arcee figure homaging The Rebirth. No clue why I just started thinking about this now.

it will never replace the better-written cartoon, and every comic IDW makes is 100% garbage.

IDW wants to be SJW but doesn't have a fucking clue about transgenderism, the LGBT community as a whole or real feminism. Tehy think "mixed race fat bi woman who reminds you of all that whenever she opens her mouth" is progressive, well it's not. Jem isn't feminism, it's bullshit with even more forced man-hating crap than the shitty 80s cartoon it's based on. It's clueless pandering that does more harm than good. The SJWs they appeal to aren't buying, they're torrenting, /pol/ will use it as arguing points to fuel their Hitler agenda, and anyone in the middle will see it's all garbage and probably side with the liars like /pol/ and Milo Yiannotworthafuck.

Sometimes I think the SJWs and /pol/ are in a race to see who can be the bigger fucking idiot in all this.

If only this shit made money so Jerry Only could sue them for the stolen name. But better he don't, they'd claim "the patriarchy is oppressing women" for upholding the fact he was first.

I doubt these cw/tr/potp cards would be worth much, sure makes them easier to keep around than the old box tech specs.

Its just cheap cardboard, even the takara mp cards are just as cheap, and I see those on online auctions.

People find value in what they like but in comparision to actual tcg's and so forth they're worth nothing, incidentally the tcg the folder was intended for died the second they said "we're going to shut down the servers" because its one of those games where the cards themselves do nothing but its online data that's used to play.

A card back then worth $120 that you had to have 3 of JUST to get the most use out of the card dropped down to $5 a month after that annoucement, truly gundam tcg's are fucking awful and its successor series was worse, sold outside of japan but unlike the predecessor with ENGRISH translations which were even WRONG they didn't even try leaving people who got them in the west to figure out the damn things, its a miracle an Australian got into the world championships.

From there no more tcg's or any cards for that matter for me unless they're packed in with something else, christ I'm just glad I stopped pokemon and didn't even try for yugioh or else I wouldn't have enough money for my sharticon legion I have now instead.

Thoughts on custom tf's?

I usually see the following trends

>base toy with abusive black panel line washes
>straight clean repaint job
>straight repaint job done by literal retard/someone who shouldn't be anywhere near a pc
>clean paint job, modded parts, pic related
>OC with parts that are easily removable ie balljoints sections and mushroom pegs on unpainted bodies, lego parts may or may not be present

I never once seen a custom of any kind with any sort of shading, I'm guessing anyone who works with tf's aren't model makers by trade eh?

Pic related still impresses me but its either a clean repaint or its just a terrible wash

I like well done customs but they're few and far between. I'm working on making a Universe Dropshot into Megatron and a CW Skydive into Starscream (both with Shapeways parts of course). The hardest part is disassembling them, though painting is harder than on, say, Gunpla because of the low partscount/colour breakup which means that you need to be good with masking if you're using an airbrush (which you should be unless you're like Duncan Rhodes with a paintbrush).
>>
>>6568522
I always try to avoid painting as much as possible 'cause I know I suck at it, but sometimes you just can't avoid it.

WFC/FoC made the heavy washes popular, but I prefer the clean look "accurate to the shows", if you want impresive shading search for "transformers devastation custom shading".

I generally dislike custom TFs, since there's really no much you can really do to customize them professionally and still have something you can play around with. Anytime I see something that looks good I have to remind myself that everything they've done to it would basically jsut fall off the moment you tried transforming it or something.

Well after doing some serious overtime this week (30 hours) I got myself a gift and bought Fortress Maximus SDCC version.

Whats he like? I always wanted him as a kid and now I'll have him in my possession.
>>
So, I'm semi-late to the party on this, but I have like... 4 MP transformer figures, and I'm thinkin about devoting more of my money towards collecting those over regular retail releases. I already own 25th anniversary Optimus, Walmart Starscream (old mold), the first release of Takara Grimlock, and both Megatrons.

I guess basically, I'm wondering how fucked am I if I want to get a few of the regular car models like Prowl? Have they ever done re-issues of those versions? I heard they were kind of overpriced even at regular retail prices, so I'm not sure how keen I am on paying aftermarket prices.

I just ordered the MP-10 TRU reissue as an upgrade from my MP-1 which has kind of slowly been falling apart (At this point he's permanently stuck in robot mode).
>>
>>6568622
In my experience with sdcc fort max I found he was ok, not worth the markup however.

Mine's joints are tighter than my hasbro metroplex, but the pre-applied stickers are poorly applied, peeling, and one is even missing (thankfully they're on the back of cerebro's shoulders), the mark up isn't even worth the extra paint (forehead in gungrey, chest offwhite, gunwales on his shin cannons tips are painted to look like they've been fired) nor the sword which has the least deco out of the 3 official versions of it.

If you really want to treat yourself, get the takara one unless you have a hasbro team, nippon yassan even have him on special right now infact but shipping is an issue.

Or even get trypticon, any version, amiami's is on sale as well and doesn't have the hip issue right out of the box, but if a hasbro version is about the same then consider that.

Otherwise enjoy your fort max

>>6568628
With the mp cars set a budget for each one, I imported mine using mandarake and 6000yen is my MAX for those, if using ebay search cautiously, unless you wait to see if mp lambor (sideswipe) anime+ version comes back up just remember to check headlights for blackborders on lamborgini retools as that is a good sign its the real deal if that bothers you being a bootleg (and after my bootleg redlart I can warn you if you get a bad one its a floppy piece of shit).

They have done reissues in the past, we could get more but I'm guessing the next re-release could be g2 bumblebee and mp soundblaster judging by the previous releases (mp10 to mp10B).

Just my take, but essentially keep it cheap if buying second hand but be warned if buying from mandarake the cheaper the higher the damage there might be (12kyen for mp ultra magnus has a brown scuff on his shin, while 5kyen for smokescreen had a chip on his front bumper, I'm not bothered by either though)

I'd otherwise waiting and seeing what holds next year

This happen with Hotspot/Onslaught mold in CW/UW where later runs had issues and the Takara one was filed with it due to their delay in manufacturing.

Are you tabbing in his hips right? I had the same issue until I figured it out, but after that the tail holds together fine

>>6568738
Yeah same. His hips actually super sturdy its just very unclear how to do it.

>>6568544
Eh, I don't know about that. I'm all for admitting when a modern toy outdoes its overrated classics counterpart, but the old Bee was pretty spot-on. Although I think it looks better as Goldbug with that little add-on kit.

I know it's a Go-Bot, but I found this old man in a shed at my grandmother's. Now he gets a new home with all my transformers. His chest transformation is actually pretty clever the way his front wheels swing behind his arms.
>>
>>6568636

Honestly, skip the official Starscream. If you want one, go get Maketoys Meteor. The official Seeker mold is honestly one of the absolute WORST official MP molds.

The reviews I've seen say it's less floppy than the first version. Anyways I have him ordered even after seeing everybody shit on him. I just can't get over how cool he looks with his cape and crown. Everyone is unloading him at an affordable price right now, and the issues didn't stop the price from getting ridiculous before.

It's as much of a piece of shit as the MP. The only thing it has over it is better hip articulation. That's IT.

Get Roadburn instead.

thinking about Brawn.
He looks solid and nice.
Both Roadburn and Bumblebee have those weird legs and shoulders...

I have the most minor toy-ruining nitpick with this toy and it's how the feet are asymmetrical because they decided to use the grill as a tab.

It just looks off.

>>6568479
if you're going to get this, get the takara version where they actually fucking bothered matching the yellow paint with the yellow plastic.

Personally, I hope they do something akin to pic related. Make his white in a bit more of a beige to give him a more interesting color composition, although anything has to be better than the awful, milky, shit plastic the Hasbro version used.

But boy mantises are cucks. They get their heads eaten if they try to have sex so the female has nutrients to give to the eggs from alpha mantises.

Matrix of Leadership, Enigma of Combination, I am guessing a Chaos Matrix...
>>
>>6569230
To be fair, FC and GM came froma time before Leaders were a set thing. Beast era through Car robots had 4 set size classes, and eve Japanese releases mostly played ball. But then you had Super,which was only used for Optimal Optimus and its repaint in BM. The RiD release for the two was listed as Super, but its clear the Japanese release wasn't trying to stick to OpOp's size class or scale.

RiD's releases of the two were actually $30 MSRP, if I recall, hence why the $40 armada Optimus was so disappointing.

Fun fact: Mantises only eat their mates when stressed. They did a study with more discreet cameras than the usual kind and the females basically never ate the males.

It's fire convoy & god magnus packed together. Both figures are pre-crash with rubber tires, paint, chrome and gimmicks out the ass. They're a buttload more expensive to produce today.

Doesn't justify it being more expensive than fucking fort max, but it makes it a little more believable.

Blaster is solid, and so is Rewind. They're a good investment. However, theres no Eject in sight currently, so if you want Eject to go with him, you're shit outta luck.

Yes if you like TMs, Blaster makes a nice small base for them. Rewind is the only decent cassette mold, so you can have him as said base's janitor or something. Skip the other cassettes.

>>6569398
>you can have him as said base's janitor or something.
But would he do it for free, though?
