Welcome to the Transformers General!

The Siege of Cybertron is coming, are you ready? Studio Series Devastator is happening, when will DotM Megatron be officially revealed?
Have any botbots caught your eye?
What Legends EX exclusives are you hoping for?
Are you hyped for Bumblebee? Will you see it?

Naturally.

Question is, will this lead to the Optimus Prime film where more Cybertronian designs will be introduced?

Takara will be getting another voyager SS Optimus will is likely to be the BB one. I think they are holding off reveals until the Bumblebee film is released. We should get something at Toyfair Feb.

>>
>>7236151
You have low standards.
>>
>>7236045
Minicons toy crack for a new generation of little kids, without being sucked into 34 years of Transformers lore. 61 brand new characters and 8 factions in the first series. 190 different ones planned for 2019.

Positive reaction from retailers and the general public has already pushed Hasbro to look for a brand manager specifically for this line. There's every likelihood that this will not only outsell Cyberverse, but will quickly become the mainline for kids, just like Generations is the mainline for older collectors.

Since you basically admitted to having zero perspective on the quality of Transformers, I'll let your ignorance slide. Quake is pretty great, though. I prefer it as Hardhead, myself. It's the figure that got me back into collecting retail stuff after many years.

Only in Prime Wars? That's drastically moving the goalposts when you originally included all of CHUG. Personally, I think Misfire/Triggerhappy and Topspin are easily better. I usually opt for Takara releases, and their G2 version of the Megatron/Blitzwing mold is one of my favorite figures of all time.

Stupid question from a person who only became interested in Transformers today: When do the siege figs come out? It looks like there's some reviews out there but I can't find anywhere to buy them.
>>
>>7236209
No but someone did review flywheels and he's as tall as battletrap. so they are shorter than the last line with a higher price tag. I'm going to have real slim pickings on this line, but burnt looks great if he can go on sale way in the future getting 2 or 3 would be nice
>>
>>7236252
Well I did recently buy Triggerhappy, so hoping I win the QC lottery with him. he looks fantastic. If Slugslinger is still around in the near future I might pick him up too

I almost pulled the trigger on takara topspin last year. Big mistake I made not getting him it seems.

They were the largest seller of toys while TRU existed. How much power do you think they have now that TRU is an end cap display at your grocery store?

Fuck The Prime Selects are going to be US releases of Takara Legends EX figures.

Origins Swoop and Stepper are Takara legends. If this actually comes out this would make Artfire the main torso.

I definitely feel like this was done on purpose so in the next like, they can charge us the same amount while adding less paint.

They pulled the same crap with the Legend Targetmasters. Not everyone was happy with the extra Targetmasters, but after they're removed, the costs stayed exactly the same.

The Cyberverse show is solid. Some episodes are actually really good. Probably the first genuinely decent cartoon since Animated found its footing. Boulder staff are fans of the IDW stuff, but they grew up on the Marvel UK stuff too, so they love putting in stuff like Rack n Ruin. That's some obscure fan wank, but I think a welcome change to just quoting the 86 movie like a poser pretending to be a longtime fan.

I suspect that Boulder is already working on a BotBots show. Even if it's just a YouTube cartoon. They can handle bizarre and actually do it on a budget. Gumball. Foster's. Danger Mouse. They're really quite good when they've got their heart in it.

>>7236853
It's a Korean toy from a line called Tobot V. That's Captain Police. He uses partsforming though: part of vehicle is removed to put on his back, and the wolf's head is like a powermaster engine to unlock a step in his transformation. There's also Speed the race car, Monster the monster truck, Rocket the space shuttle, and most recently Tankguy the tank.

I only got the original Hasbro. If you don't have the mold, I can tell you that it's a surprisingly articulated figure of its era. The original one looks like a space sperm though in rock mode. And this Optimus colored one just looks, well, it's not attractive. So mold wise it's pretty good as an action figure, terrible as a TF and the Optimus colors don't help.

I don't care what anyone says, the MP-12 mold is fucking great. I love the cartoon-inaccurate wide chest and ankle-taillights.

>I wish transformers did cool transforming weapons more often. They fit really well thematically.
Most people don't care about them. It makes the weapons inaccurate to the original cartoon/toy, and it's not a geewun gimmick, so there's really no impetus for them to put in that extra effort. Did you miss the anon last thread who was actually complaining about Battlemasters because we'd just recently gotten the Prime Master/Titan Master weapons, and he thought it felt like rehashing? People have no interest in genuinely fun concepts, but they'll buy every fucking geewun Optimus or Soundwave the second it hits the shelves.

>>
>>7237003

>>
>>7236986
I'd be curious to weigh them and see which actually has more plastic, because Siege Hound seems more dense, overall. It's impressive that he manages to be smaller than a CW deluxe because those guys were pretty short, overall, but it's stupid to try and evaluate transforming robot toys by height alone.
>>
>>7237013
I have the non-Fireburst version of him, he's a fun figure. Got him sans knee-flaps for £15 on evilBay and I really, really like him (especially with some chrome courtesy of Molotow). I actually really like the gun he comes with, though the Fireburst version looks super nice too.

I will say I kinda wanna get the Fireburst version, remove the blue paint from the eyes and repaint the red parts black, he'd make a pimpin' Nemesis Prime.
>>
>>7236835
>>7236986
Where's the Chad Classics/Universe figure?
Paying $20 for something awkwardly between a deluxe and a scout is a hard bitter pill to swallow.

Also I heard Hound is prone to come apart unless that one guy just got the most defective figure possible.

Actually, I should probably hope that the LG-EX line handles it, because then it might actually get some proper remolding, better paint, and, dare I dream, his mini-con partner as a whole new mold.

When was the last time anyone saw a bootleg Constructicon anywhere other than SirToys? Big Lots quit selling them after Hasbro's C&D a decade ago. I've seen the other "Transformers" box sets at Family Dollar and Dollar General but not Constructicons. I'm pretty sure the deal to sell actual Transformers included a stipulation to not sell those specifically. None at my local flea market. Wal Mart and some grocery store chains sell pre packed Easter baskets and sometimes those have those, but not recently.

I think Cybertron is kind of the starting point where the old molds can still stand up in comparison with the newer stuff and where newer versions aren't necessarily going to be better than the older ones.

I don't know. I doubt HasTak could do a new RiD Megatron better than the original. Generations Skybyte was pretty shit now that I remember it.
>>
>>7237253
You are absolutely right especially with Sky-Byte, but I kind of view RID as more an outlier to the argument. While most of the stuff during Cybertron and afterwards are just as good as much of the newer stuff.

Other side of the case. So far no one has found anything but these exact 24 BotBots in their case. Duplicates are only in the five & eight packs. Other than the five remaining Lost Bots, you can tell which duplicate you are getting and buy a different pack if you don't need the ones you see. Pretty easy. Lazy will still whine.

Since Windblade basically has a difference personality in every media appearance what's the main reason not to like her

I don't read the comics, so my main experience with her was the fucking awful Machinma thing where she was bad and annoying, RID where she was just Ironhide, and Cyberverse where she's motherly and having to deal with an autistic child.

Yes, but he's old now and considered GEEWUN. So it's Windblades turn since she's newer.

I love Hot Rod precisely because he IS Poochie. He's one of the most archetypal, designed-by-committee, "2-kool-4-skool", shameless attempts at a kid appeal character of all time, and it's gorgeous.

It's part of why I love his LG toy being a headmaster so much. I feel like Hot Rod would be the kind of character that just embraces every gimmick imaginable in an attempt to be "hip".

Drift was barely pushed. His mini, his brief appearance near the end of AHM, and essentially vanished until suddenly reappearing near the end of the ongoing. Then he shows up in MTMTE for about a year, then fucks off again for 3-4 years. So yeah, we got plenty of time were Drift wasn't being pushed.

Alpha Trion never had a set alt mode, so they probably decided on Lion since it's the closest he ever got to a toy. His only other option at the time was the Batmobile from the Nolan movies.

By the time he got to RID he was basically a struggling father trying to take care of Bart, Lisa, and Homer (and Fixit) and it super endeared me to the character. He wasn't a standard PLUCKY NEW LEADER TRYING TO PROVE HE CAN BE JUST AS GOOD AS OPTIMUS, but rather a tired, struggling, beat cop who suddenly found himself in a situation where he HAD to be like Optimus.

Cyberverse Bee is just Wreck Gar on Earth and RID Sideswipe in flashbacks. Which considering RID Sideswipe was the most popular character with kids who watched RID... doesn't surprise me.

That's my problem with the whole Siege of Cybertron line. It looks pretty good, but I could care less about the normal G1 lineup. I'm waiting for the repaints or remolds or something but I'm not sure if I should even expect it considering how G1 everything has been so far.

The weapons guys look great though.

Anyone else have this issue with this mold? In jet mode one of his tread sections just won't stay flat against the side (right side of image).

>but I'm not sure if I should even expect it considering how G1 everything has been so far.
I've got my fingers crossed. Although, given the fact that TR was one of the most non-sunbow toylines in recent history makes me scared they might be retreating to G1 safe space for most of Siege. Non-sunbow stuff like Brunt and Cog makes me hopeful, though.

They've always released a G2 Sideswipe at some point when it gets a new mold. Most of the time they're exclusive to something, but they come out.

That was later, his original concept was all Lion based on the concept art, and the original toy was meant for CW, it wasn't until it was moved to TR that they added the spaceship mode bits and references to Vector since they had no choice due to the triple changing voyagers in that line.

you can do it with Potp prime. you have to untab his soulders so it looks janky, but the gun has two pegs that he can actually hold so it works.

I often buy new headsculpts from Shapeways.
Used "smooth fine detail" material on this megatron's new face and chest.

Most designers on shapeways let you pick a material. There's great stuff out there if youre willing to fork over the money. You can see what the material is going to be like in 3d view.
Some designers are behind on the new materials though. Id never pick cheap "versatile plastic" unless it was for a simple weapon or joint piece.

Literally 2 seconds of googling.

You are a lazy fuck.

A lot more solid and the joints are located better. Like his knees aren't where his thighs should be.

The correct answer.
