That Hun-grrr is still trash on its own, but hopefully Abominus turns out stable at least

Menasor/Ultra Prime - unstable as fuck

Defensor/Bruticus - semi-stable, leans over too easily

No idea about Superion or Lynxmaster, didn't own either.
>>
>>6662042
Superion is rocksolid pretty much, in both design and articulation. Lynxmaster is good for more or less the same reasons, but suffers from weak joints that make posing in combined mode difficult.

So related to that are we going to get any other leader class figures besides Optimus, Rodimus, and Primal, alongside repaints for Rodimus and probably Optimus?

They could try a standard tank G1 Megs that turns into the Galvatron cannon.

A BW Megs that forms the core of a BW transmetal Megs could be cool.

Maybe a wimpy Grimlock into a proper mighty Grimlock?

Nice idea but that's one too many Megs there bucko.

The little guy has to be a triple changer- robot, alt mode, and core/chest mode. That's why the Hot Rod figure can have the Rodimus Prime head sticking out of his ass.

The big part generally only has two modes- an alt mode to go with the alt mode of the little guy and a hollow suit of armor to plug the core into.

So if they did a G1 Megs/Galvatron, the little one would be tank-G1 megs- Galvatron core while the big one could be a missile platform trailer that evokes the Galvatron cannon, and turns into a hollow Galvatron robot.

True, if he had waist swivel his ankes would give him even more options, well that and wrist swivels/balljoints, still love the mold.
>>
>>6662287
I never really understood the big deal of a waist swivel. It's not nearly as important as ankle tilts or good knees, but people always seem to want one.
>>
>>6662289
The need for ankle tilts can be slightly averted by putting the feet at a very slight outward angle. The Aerialbots are one example of this. However, there's no real way to emulate a waist swivel without just doing a waist swivel.

Yeah, I know it sounds like bullshit, but that's likely the thinking going on.
>>
>>6662289
It's just as rare as ankles but it can be so easily implemented on most molds it's a damn shame. Crunches are even rarer. You can probably count the amount of TFs with one on a single hand.

I'm just saying that a waist swivel doesn't really enable all that much. Meanwhile, good hips, knees or ankles are what can take a figure from being "meh" to spectacular.
>>
>>6662289
Its useful for dynamic poses, but in the case of Doublecross turning his waist around would enable his reverse ankles rockers.
>>
>>6662308
But then his knees would be backwards. Seems kind of pointless.

Waist swivels are a fucking basic of good posing, my friend. You would be amazed at the dynamism you can show with a simple twist of the waist. You can use it to show a character suddenly swiveling around in surprise while their feet stay planted, you can use it to show a character swinging their massive shoulders from side to side as they plod forward, you can use it to show acrobatic twists and spins mid-air. If you use it correctly and set up your shot right, you can even use a waist swivel to suggest contrapposto in a figure with no ab crunch/balljoint.
>>
As dumb as it is having backwards ankle tilts on Doublecross from the trasformation, I've found that the foot rotation thing going on is actually pretty much just as good for keeping his feet stable on the ground.

You'd have to be stupid to think the cons come anywhere close to outweighing the pros in 99% of situations. Nobody used to think paint was the devil until MP Megatron, and now people shit their pants in fear when they see a figure with paint. It'd be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

Look, I'm the greatest proponent of good leg joints out there. With good leg joints you're made in the shade. I'm just trying to get you to show some respect for the humble waist swivel, it does so much more work for posing than you give it credit for.

He still looks super impressive in robot mode, but god his vehicle mode chugs dick. All they had to do was make something that locks the crane into the vehicle. Its too fucking big to just tab in. The crane falls off if you look at it funny. He cant even hold it as a weapon unless its balanced just right.

Some terrible one-shot "What if?" comic that explores an alternate version of the '86 movie where Optimus lives. Whole issue is spent emasculating Hot Rod and then he dies at the end. As I was reading it, I could feel the author grasping at catharsis from from behind the angry fanboy rage of a manchild who is still stomping his foot over the fact that Hasbro executives decided to kill his favorite toy 30 years ago. It was so pathetic I could barely finish it.

They're not placeholders, the images are new and therefore at the very least come from a source that got these toys beforehand. What is possible, however, is that they just got Hasbro versions instead and are assuming them as being equal to Japanese releases.

>>6662884
So two possibilities here.

1: These are placeholders and the final versions won't have stickers.
2: Takara really did get a telling off for making their figures too good, and Hasbro are enforcing minimal differences.

If it's the former I'm OK with it. If it's the latter I may stop buying official non-MP TFs. Stickers are not acceptable. Though to be honest the base molds look so terrible that short of Ginrai-level retooling, no amount of TAKARA WINS AGAIN could save them for me.

This. And hopefully a better face, or at least one painted silver. Fuck this whole "hurrr, the bots have flat colored faces because there's no such thing as silver on an animation cel" meme.
>>
>>6662894

No reason to think that the Takara versions simply aren't finished yet. Do we really think Hasbro is going to force them to stop making their versions better because it's hurting the sales on the domestic versions, when Takara has been putting a lot of effort into new paint jobs and parts?

I don't know how significant a percentage of sales it is, but are they going to just completely forego their import market?
>>
>>6662881
Yeah, because the Hasbro versions are gonna be so much better right?

3P or bust.
>>
>>6662902
I'm guessing that they're gonna release almost identically to the hasbro versions like tlk, hence why they're not part of the legends line, and in turn make boxsets for the proper teams with new paint and possible sculpting
>>
>>6662881
Who's an apologist? If these really aren't placeholder imagines, then I'm very relieved. Now I will no longer be tempted to buy official shit on any level and can save my money for my glorious 3P god emperor.

I'm not really sure what the point would be of that though when they could at very least add things like painted wheels and tail lights to figures such as Jazz.

Did we ever hear why they didn't bother doing much with some of the movie stuff? Low import numbers? Low Japanese interest?

I'll be surprised if they don't skip straight to doing Hydra and Buster though, maybe as a box set.

The hasbro toys are intended for children, we collectors who CAN access imports only make a small percentage, the problem lies in distribution, assortment ranges and price.

In my Country (Australia, yes I'm about to go to bed), most stores are still clogged from the broadside wave and only gotten a small spatter of wave 5 voyagers, and apart from new waves figures don't move until sales time and even then some figures are more sought after than others (twinferno quake and getaway are the main shelfwarmers, everything else flies especially hotrods).

And Australia being as shit as it is means some areas get some figures and some don't forcing us to travel far or buy online, meanwhile those buying for kids are happy buying anything as evident when last sales time a shelf with 10 twinfernos from initial release went down to 2, and that 2 is still there even now.

If hasbro is taking it all out on takara then here is a damn good idea, buy fucking takara outright and steer them in the right direction, but if you throttle takara too much they'll fall behind in their home market

>>6662914
If I were you I'd wait until sites like hlj and the like list them as well as the takara tomy webshop, if lucky we'll get grey scales images implying something different.

Don't give up hope until the last moment, and even then, we can save our cash for better things.

Takara will rise again, and we'll be there to suck up all that glorious paint and tampo prints

>>
>>6662919

Fair, but I guess my question is more in how much of Takara's business on their versions of the main line toys is made up of imports to the U.S., Europe, Australia, etc. I don't think it can be so insignificant as it is in the U.S. with kids versus adults, since Japan is a much smaller market and I get the impression that the ratio of adult buyers is greater.

I'd imagine they'redoing Hasbro releases to get a bit of the early profits from Japanese ans who would import them anyways or give their few kids the same figures for less.

I have to wonder, did Hasbro make Takara release identical product to prevent the boycott of their products? Or did Takara just look at the abysmal trash coming out next year and realize that excess paint wasn't going to sell this crap to their domestic market and opted for the TLK treatment with lower pricepoints instead.

The stickers in Arms Micron were an intentional gimmick though, the point was to have fun applying them and therefore feeling some sense of pride and accomplishment in having decorated the figure by yourself. This... This is just cheaping out, plain and simple.

Ignore him, it's just "I really don't like Trump" anon having a sperging fit again. I really don't see why he doesn't just go to /leftypol/ to vent there.

Topic: Is this dude any good? He looks fun and I reckon he'd make a decent "grunt".

Hello everyone, now that Takara’s POTP line has been revealed, and seeing as some of this has already leaked out from others, it is a bit safer to post this. I have a few sources who work closely with Hasbro. This is what I have been told.

Hasbro is pushing for Takara figures to be more similar to their own. Hasbro is tired of them “making them look bad”.
Expect very few if any changes for Takara’s POTP items. At most, the combiners will be sold in box sets, but with no changes to the actual figures themselves.
The stickers you are seeing are a cost cutting measure as well as the team thinking collectors like them because the G1 figures had stickers.
Titan Omega Supreme is being worked on. He is a Metroplex remold. Scorponok too but he is in early planning stages. Unicron is being considered.
Titan Predaking will be very simple but will have full articulation. All have elbows.
There will be very few POTP Decepticon Leaders. Megatron into Galvatron is one of them.
Optimal Optimus will be repainted as Primal Prime. Optimus Prime is being retooled as both Star Saber and Ultra Magnus. He will also be repainted as Nemesis Prime.
There will be no Deathsaurus in POTP. The Horrorcons will both be in whatever line is after POTP.
There are no fembots in POTP apart from the ones we’ve already seen. Elita will not have a full fembot team.

Piranacon, Dinoking and Monstructor are coming. They are mostly retools.
For Cyberverse it will all be gimmick toys, no articulated ones for older collectors like RID or the movies had.
No Beast Wars figures besides Optimal Optimus are planned.
Studio Series will officially debut at Toy Fair. What we’ve seen in leaks is currently all they have planned but there may be more in the future if sales are good.
BB line itself will be very small.
POTP was not always this. There were many concepts for it, one of which involved beastformers. In the end CW sales and retailers liking it so much pushed it in the direction it is now.
Titans Return Broadside/Tidal Wave was almost a Leader, but there were arguments about it within Hasbro and he ended up as a Voyager.
Likewise, there were debates on if Predaking should be a Titan or a normal 4 Deluxe/1 Voyager combiner. In the end Titan won out.

That’s all for now.

Trump only cares about Jews, because he's a Jew. He sucked Israel's ass yesterday and white neo-Nazi filth are in full damage control mode so they can pretend he's not Jewish. Otherwise they'd have to admit they got swindled. Trump does what his puppet master Putin tells him to, and Putin does what Israel says.

Steamhammer's pretty weak as a torso imo, it doesn't lock well, but better than Afterburner or whatever that Superion Maximus one is called.

The construction limbs are probably the best limbs though, their hands/feet look the most convincing.
>>
>>6663151
Yeah, I know he sucks as a torso, but I did enjoy him as an individual figure.

I like the idea of the Energon Constructicons being "auxiliaries" to the main Constructicon team, along with PCC Steamhammer (or Gravedigger) and any other Decepticon construction vehicles I might have.
>>
>>6663151
Also, that Giga-Fist mode is pretty fucking neat, nice one.

He isn't a bad combiner, it just sort of sucks that, much like the other two Energon gestalts, he only has two limb molds. Still, totally worth it for the individual figures alone.

Also, consider getting the superior Classics repaint.

>>6663164
Damn, those colours are nice. I like the Energon "all different colours" approach but that is still pretty dapper.

Keep going with this friend.

Thing is I'm not sure if it's two or three or four of us.

Couple weeks ago someone posted OUR WORLD IS IN DANGER for the first time, and I lost my fucking shit during a lecture. I then decided to honor him by reposting it several times.

Then you came along with the jazz version, and then either you or someone else made the hot rod/ rodimus one with our waifus are with a stranger.

I'm so happy. One guy made a good joke, I reposted it and now it's a meme.

Keep posting bro
