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?>Bumblebee Trailer:https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lcwmDAYt22k >Based Travis Knight and John Warden will save Transformers!>Old thread: >>7234157
>>7235987Who's the green conehead supposed to be?
>>7235987Will SS do the full Bumblebee cast?
>>7235884Not really, what would you retool his components into?
>>7235987>Based Travis Knight and John Warden will save Transformers!Naturally.
>>7236021Question 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.
>>7236027>Virgin Travis Knight and John Warden will destroy Transformers!Save us GOD EMPEROR ARCHER.
>>7235987>>7236027>Based Botbots will save Transformers!FTFY
>>7236038Chad Travis Knight:>Makes Transformers look like Transformers>Made one of the best animated movies of the decade>Stop Motion is an art and he takes time and care>He's a craftsman,he cares about his creation and works hard to see his vision alive>Son of the creator of Nike>Is a fucking millionaire,doesn't give a fuck about any studio>Can do a full G1 movie if he wants>Brings humour and love to the franchise>Saves TransformersVirgin Michael Bay:>Made Transformers a joke>Made them look like monsters>Only human screentime>Reuses scenes from his older movies because muh costs>He's still using 200 million budget that goes for explosions and shit complicated designs>Muh sport cars>Muh hot women>Still no wife>Hit 50 still a virgin>Hated by everyone>He's a hack>Good friend with another hack named James Cameron>Closer to kill the Transformers franchise with TLK>Such a big flop it ruined Paramount's contract with Huhua and closer to bankrupt themNow someone do one for Virgin Archer vs Chad Warden,ok?
>>7236041What the hell are the BotBots?
>>7236045Tiny, adorable saviors that will rescue us from the endless G1 rehash cycle!
How would look Travis Knight's take on the dinobots and Megatron look like? Nice that Bumblebee gives us a fresh aestethic different from the boring G1 and Bayformers ones.
>>7236049>boring G1 and Bayformers ones.Whatever you think of the bayformers designs they are certainly not boring.
>>7236050incoherant, yes, but not boring.
>started my TF collection with Quake (in terms of recent shit, I got a minicon a few days prior)>never found a better figure in the entire CHUG line aside from MAYBE Outback and CindersaurWhat did Hasbro mean by this
>>7236151You have low standards.
>>7236045Minicons 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.
>>7236161Explain. Why am I wrong in my assessment?
>>7236151Since 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.
Anyone have Cog yet?
>>7236195What would you say are some of the better Prime war entries then?
>>7236209Yeah, lotta posts last thread.
>>7236209Obtibuttimus uploaded a review yesterday.
>>7236221Only 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.
>>7236027two years of foil stickers
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.
>>7236209No 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
>>7236252Well 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 tooI almost pulled the trigger on takara topspin last year. Big mistake I made not getting him it seems.
>>7236256Some just started being released in the last few days but aren't widespread yet. They're on ebay and amazon for inflated prices because of the limited availability so far.
>>7236269Thanks. I was a bit thrown off when I didn't even see them up for pre-order on BBGTS or TFsource.
>>7236274>I didn't even see them up for pre-order on BBGTS or TFsource.Blame pic related for that.
>>7236235And yet no picture of him alongside Fortress to know if the blue matches, I'd also like to know if he fits inside Fortress left tit or right forearm.
>>7236278No idea what you're talking about. Don't tell me they're Walmart exclusive or something?
>>7236281Walmart got a deal with toymakers, they have priority over online only stores, TR and POTP had a 2 month delay.
>>7236283Not so much a deal as Walmart saying, "you stop with this online store nonsense, or we'll stop selling your products in our meager toy section."
So Red Swoop and Blacker Jazz/Stepper/Ricochet apparently has a listing.http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/11/06/power-of-the-primes-select-series-red-swoop-and-ricochet-375982You thought Power of the Primes was over,?You were wrong, Diaclone and Japanese color schemes FOR EVERYONE!
>>7236290They 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.
>>7236348Literally who cares. I mean we have had so many versions of Stepper/Richochet that it's not even special anymore.https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ricochet_(Adventure)https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Ricochet_(Headmasters)
>>7236354>If this actually comes out this would make Artfire the main torso.Toyhax/reprolabels could release a sticker set for Inferno with a new chest door, he already has the head.
>>7236348But blue Swoop was the diaclone color scheme.
>>7236163>become the new mainline for kidsThank god. Split that cyberverse budget in half, small pocket sized original bots and good renditions of our nostalgiafag love characters. I'm game. I honestly wouldn't even mind some slightly bigger Botbots or cool transformable playsets.
>>7236366This. If botbots get their own show than we can completely kill the RiD/Cyberverse Bumbleshit cancer. It’ll be kids stuff, movie stuff, and Retro CHUG goodness

>>7236354All I hope is that Stepper includes a Targetmaster. That will make or break my decision to get him. I already own MP Artfire so I couldn't care less about a potential CW version.
>>7236354Where did you hear this?
>asking for more paint apps on Hasbro figures for literally years>finally get them in the form of inconsistent and messy “battle-damage”>fans now figuring out ways to remove the extra paintUltimate Monkey’s Paw or Hasbro just trolling the fanbase hard?
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.
>>7236378He won't. Pray for WFC DLC.
>>7236422If he doesn't have it, I'm not getting it.
For all the anons that have found Siege in the wild, what state? I'm trying to get an idea of the distribution of the various size classes.
>>7236429Nothing in Puerto Rico, so far.
>>7236429From what I've been reading it's mostly up in Washington and down in Florida at select local shops.
>>7236436Only local shops in Florida? I hope there's more come December.
>>7236436Been seeing a lot of California sightings too. I personally haven't seen any in my part of Cali. I am pretty sure Brickseek is inaccurate for Siege, so I might just see if they just haven't put them out yet.
I like Ironhide’s missile-launcher/hammer.I wish transformers did cool transforming weapons more often. They fit really well thematically.

>>7236474you get what you paid for.
>>7235987*blocks your path*
>>7236458>"Say Ironhide, why does your missile launcher turn into a hammer"?"You ever wanted to hit someone so hard they explode"?>"Uh...""Exactly".
>>7236489What's this? Is there a red one?
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReXlgI1P0yEHit after hit. Is this end of third party?
>>7236534I would sooner hope that it would kill Takara MPs first.
>>7236534Really excited for a new Hound toy.
Does anyone have the takara protoform optimus?is it worth the extra money?
>>7236638Do you have fucking eyes man? Of course it isnt.
>>7236283which makes no sense seeing as how they barely ever rotate new stock or stock anything at all for that matter.
>>7236036I just want those seekers now, even a tetra shape cybertronian mode would be good. Then they can have earth mode toys in the Optimus prime movie
>>7236835Is it legends sized?
>>7236805wat is dis
>>7236839Cmon man, you don’t know the bot with the SHOTGUN?!?!?!?!!?!!!
>>7236838No, Universe Swipe is just a big bruv.
>>7236851I dont, but he looks cooler than 90 percent of the transformers I see at the store.
Is Hasbro MP+ Prowl out yet?
>>7236371The 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.
>>7236839>>7236851>>7236853It'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.
>>7236923Tanko dude looks cool, Salami dragon looks shitty on all 3 modes.
>>7236923>>7236805Well that sucks, my country's distributor only brought in the earlier, shittier Tobot toylines.
>>7236638I 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.
>>7236835I don't care what anyone says, the MP-12 mold is fucking great. I love the cartoon-inaccurate wide chest and ankle-taillights.
>>7236456>Wow that actually doesn't look terrible, maybe I should consider getting my first retail TF for the first time since 2012 from the Seige li->>7236474Almost had me. Not sure why they would even release that image.
>>7236805I'd be into this if it wasn't massive.
>>7236638I do, if the colors appeal to you more than the hasbro/tlk tru special edition version then go for it, mold wise its ok even if a bit of a shell former to a degree
>>7236456>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.
>>7236835Hound isn't any better.
>>7236986wtf I hate siege now
>>7236978This, sadly. I feel like the only person in the world that liked MechTech- granted the fact the Deluxe weapons couldn't stay transformed without removing springs sucked but the concept was pretty cool.
>>7237008Nah, I love the mechtech weapons too. Especially the gunaxe that came with Fireburst OP. Cool figure, amazing weapon.
>>7237003Why? It looks great.
>>7236986>>7236835Damn, wasn't sure about getting the deluxe cars but I actually like the smaller size.
>>7236986I'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.
>>7237013I 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>>7236986Where'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.
>>7237016>deluxe cars but I actually like the smaller sizeSame, that Sidesipe will replace my Universe Sides, just needs a few stickers/paint apps to make it fit better.
So if Skytread is a Duocon, does that make Cog a Duobot?
>>7237028That car mode is really nice, reminds me of like a late 70s/early 80s concept car.
>>7237033He's a drone so it doesn't really matter, but yes, he's always been one.
>>7236278related, i work for wal mart, but not in toys. I've been using brickseek/target dcpi to feed Siege info to our computer to prevent "its on the shelf but it won't scan at the checkout" from happening>that's how i got the new repro g1 'Screamer
>>7237033Sure, as much as Omega Supreme.
>>7237028I really hope an Armada Wheeljack repaint happens with that mold. The bot mode is solid and the alt. mode is sexy as fuck, but I really just have zero fucking interest in basic bitches like Sideswipe and Red Alert nowadays.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.
>>7235987>What Legends EX exclusives are you hoping for?Bludgeon!
>>7237042>Dat hollow lack of calves.Re considering my Dai Atlas preorder.
>>7237049Who is the evil Ratchet?
>>7237049Also, a Guardian Robot/Omega Sentinel in two years or so, after Siege Omega comes out.
>>7237053It's a bummer, but it ain't gonna ruin the whole package for me.
>>7237054The japanese release of Beast Hunters Ratchet,
>>7237059I know but what character is the mold supposed to represent? Just evil Ratchet?
>>7236671>>7236954call it shit taste, but i actually like how it looks paint wise>>7236971yeah, and i don't like much the original protoform
>>7237049Really wise they had done more Pretenders as Headmasters along with Primemaster shells like we got with Metalhawk (and hopefully Bludgeon down the line).
>only version of Overlord that has Giga and Mega is the Takara version>don't want to pay $80 for a mediocre toy
>>7237071They don't even godmasterize, just get one of the many 3p/shapeways engine backpacks for your 20 usd Overlord.
>>7237062>According to a translated version of the bio, Ratchet was captured by the Decepticons, and forcibly exposed to Dark Energon thus mutating him into a Decepticon.Yes.
>>7237071You can find him online for 60, where the hell are you looking?
>>7236638I had no idea this existed. I actually really like it. It puts emphasis on the "alien" part of "transforming alien robot".
So glad I finally picked up Triggerhappy. Really nice toy, can’t believe he was such a readily available figure a few months ago
>>7237073>>7237077There's no way this is legit
>>7237112Yeah that screams scam, they also could be factory rejects with missing/damaged parts or stolen. do you feel lucky enough to try?
>>7237112>On EbayDude, other sites exist. Look for them.
>>7237071The regular one is 30 bucks on Amazon. Swallow your pride anon
>>7237112Check his rep.>>7237120Have any links? couple of weeks ago I tried amiami, hlj and few others and he was sold out on all of them.
>>7237126Hes 4800 yen used on amiami
>>7237042>I really hope an Armada Wheeljack repaint happens with that moldMy nigga.>his mini-con partner as a whole new mold.They'd probably use one of the Micro Masters.
>>7237168I want it, but we all know it's not happening, and neither is Cybertron Hot Shot from Hound.
>>7237187I 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.
>>7237244I 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.
>>7237253You 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.
>>7236835>>7237028How does this new Universe or Evergreen or whatever sideswipe compare to the Masterpiece? I have like a bootleg copy of it
The Blind Bag case has 24 different figures. No duplicates.
>>7237312It's going to be real embarrassing trying to find the one's I want. An 24 year old man using a flashlight to find the ones I want.
>>7237312Other 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.
>>7237315If you're embarrassed by your own hobby, move on. Toy robots are all kids toys, even when they sell them to adults.
>>7237322This is different, buying a toy is simple, buying a blind packed toy I have to check so I don't get one I don't want.
>>7237325who cares dude, i've seen people molesting lego blind bags nonstop to get what they want
>>7237312So if we buy all 24 we have all of them? That's pretty good for those who want to collect all of them. And would shining a light actually work? What from the package can you actually see?
>>7237354There are more than 24. You just won't get duplicates in that box. If you buy another box then you will more than likely see duplicates from the first box. That's if you want to collect them all or don't get what you want the first time.
>>7237354I just hope they eventually reveal there's a very easy way to check which has which like with Turbo Chargers. That pressed letter made finding them so easy.
>>7237318Finally! Proof that goddamn Venus flytrap neck stem goes down in frog-mode.How has every picture managed to do it wrong so far.
>>7237439>How has every picture managed to do it wrong so far.Because Hasbro
Are there add-ons for PotP Optimal Optimus that gives Primal a Beast Mode and fills the back for OO?
Found some in hand botbot pics on Twitter:Sticky McGee, tape dispenser.
>>7237318So, do the 5 and 8 packs have different figs entirely from the blind bags? (Minus the one "surprise")

Just gaze into my nipples of the future!

>>7236163Im 100% okay with Botbots replacing the kid's lines but I hope they have at least a few characters who can graduate to mainline stuff.
>>7238054Which version of the King Kong book is that?
>>7238075Not sure. It’s the one with Frank Frazetta art
>>7237655watch this be the next beast wars mp that was announced awhile back
>>7237844Since Windblade basically has a difference personality in every media appearance what's the main reason not to like herI 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.
>>7237867Mirage and Hound. That's about it.
>>7237844>npc memeby that logic hating windblade makes you an npc since a lot of people hate her
>>7238098I wish I could get a full non-headmaster TR head and put it on the generations body
>>7238098she is hasbro's poochie.
>>7238111Wouldn't that technically be Hot Rod?
>>7238112People actually like hotrod aside from SEETHING G1ers who can’t appreciate the movie
>>7238112in the 80s he was the poochie but that was a long ass time ago and only old farts still hold a grudge. Its likely gonna be the same case with windblade
>>7238112Yes, but he's old now and considered GEEWUN. So it's Windblades turn since she's newer.
>>7238116I 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".
>>7238098>yfw she appears in the new movies
>>7238112>A character shoved into our faces and told YOU HAVE TO LIKE THIS CHARACTER NOW It's... both?
>>7238116Okay then wouldn't Drift be more appropriate?He was a radical weeb bot years before Windblade.For the record I think all three of them are pretty cool from a design perspective but I don't know anything about them (except for Hot Rod who I like) outside of the toys.
>>7238126Again, Windblade is just newer then Drift. Give it a few years and only people holding grudges like the Geewunners who still hate Hot Rod will still be getting pissed off about Windblade.
>>7238127I'll only keep hating Windblade because it's a walking testament to the fandom's shit taste.
>Really enjoying my figure>find awful qc issue somewhere on it, usually slop paint>ruined foreverrinse and repeat
>>7238126Drift 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.
>>7238160He's so happy for lotsa spaghetti.
>>7238161>>7238160Can he dab with the skeletons?
>>7238160>>7238161Can't wait to do the same with Swoop, axadactyl, and TR guy
>>7238163Can Lionizer also be held as a huge gun?
>>7238162No limited arm movement despite being on ballpoints.
The lgs targetmasters are much nicer but these are ok stand ins. Hopefully everyone from TR can reunite with their TM.
I almost bought LG Hot Rod, but then I'd have to double dip double cross for Blurr's guy...
>>7238163>LG-41What's it like being better than me?
>>7238166Perfect, now I can buy the only Battlemaster I care about without worries.
>>7238175Not him, but Lio Prime was pretty easy to get until recently. You could find one online for as low as 30 bucks.I never got him since he's white and he'll yellow horribly here in the Caribbean.
>>7238175Pretty good, the extra non-TM seat gun definitely helps and I love the sword this mold has. Definitely the best repaint we can get from this mold. Alpha Trion as a lion is an odd choice considering the Alpha Trion Lion is a botcon repaint.
>>7238182Alpha 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.You can thank Vector Prime for that sword, since that was the other intended usage for the mold (explaining the spaceship mode and safeguard TM).
>>7238180I consider myself lucky to have snagged one from Mandarake for 2500 yen. Nowadays I see him going for around 3-4k on Mandarake
>>7238098>Cyberverse where she's motherly and having to deal with an autistic child.Cyberverse made me hate Bee after I liked him on Prime and RID.
>>7238185Thanks for the neat fact. I kinda miss Vector Prime, I really loved his Cybertron figure, it was very detailed and he even came with his own Target Master.
>>7238180>>7238182>>7238186h-ha, I was just kidding guys! Look! I have LG-41 too!
>>7238189good call. cybertron was sort of the last bastion of batshit insane ideas. I still believe that one day we'll get an official Signal Lancer.
>>7238194God I was hoping third party would do it eventually, but nothing yet.
>MFW Construct-Bots + Weaponizers
>>7238189I want Maketoys to do him so bad. I'd love a really good high quality rendition of him.
>>7238205Anon, you need to show the results of this experiment. You might be on to something.I was a bit doubtful with Siege but the guys who become universal dlc armor and weapons are pretty cool. The more traditional figures are alright and the only bad thing about this line is the god awful battle damaged paint, but it looks like you can just use rubbing alcohol or magic erase it off.
>>7238187By 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.
>>7238169Well damn it's a good thing I got the LGs and their targetmasters, now my bots can dual wield.
>>7238218RID Bee = G1 Rodimus done right, especially how he told Optimus to fuck off.
>>7238199How willing are you to tolerate shapeways plastic?https://www.shapeways.com/product/JJMGYN6P4/alert-knight
>>7238294I wish 3d printing tech was better, that looks like it was made with styrofoam.
>>7238308lol, 3d printing tech is better, Shapeways just has old ass machines doing their SLS shit, I'm talking older than 10 years
>>7237024How do the plastics of Studio Series/WFC Siege compare with the likes of 2012/13 Fall of Cybertron and Thrilling 30 releases?
>>7238347On which years did plastic change quality?I heard that 2014/15 combiner wars onwards was a turning point due to Vietnam. Even the switch from Classics/Universe to Generations was a big change.
>>7238347Some stuff feels like cheap storage box plastic.
It's so nice to finally have a Sideswipe that's actually fun to play with.
>>7238470This doesn't look good at all, though. Really need to get a new Sunstreaker in this trilogy, preferable not a repaint.
>>7238471Tell me it's your camera and not that Sideswipe is using Hasbro's favorite pre-yellowed shade of white plastic.
>>7238473It's your favorite off-white plastic~
>>7238473Here's a better comparison for the whites over the years.
>>7237112why get scammed at ebay when you could get an overlord for free?
>>7238475That Classics Sideswipe's white looks mixed with red way more than on mine.
>>7238471sideswipe is the little brother, after all.
>>7238478I'm pretty sure it's just reflecting the red bits.
>>7238480I don't doubt you're right, just never seen it do that before.
>>7238474God dammit Hasbro. Get your fucking shit together.
>Don't worry, I'll use my hologram projector to summon a disguise!
>>7238475it's funny how people never compare this with the stupid foc sideswipe, as if everyone's trying to forget that it ever exsited.
>>7238474Mmmm, nicely pre-yellowed
>>7238491Maybe because no one bought it.
Hound's a pretty happy chap with his wrist swivels. No complaints.
>>7238475Is his red painted or just plastic color?
>>7238496how does a deluxe hound get wrists but not voyager megatron?
>>7237040Omega Supreme is a Vigintibot, actually.
>>7238506They seem to be scared to add swivel wrists to wrists that have to fold down for transformation, which was something they did years ago no problem.
>>7236474At least the hallow back is fixable when he's wearing an accessory but them arms.
>>7238471Sunny already got an update.
>>7236805>>7236839>>7236851>>7236901Is there anywhere to buy these besides eBay?
>>7238519Is there a worse CW mold than this? I skipped most of CW, but there fucking can't be.
>>7237042>I really hope an Armada Wheeljack repaint happens with that mold. The bot mode is solid and the alt. mode is sexy as fuck, but I really just have zero fucking interest in basic bitches like Sideswipe and Red Alert nowadays.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.
>>7236474Ironhide? More like Hollowback. Am I right fellas?
>>7238524They'll eventually have to fill the third wave with a repaint or two, so we might get a random guy like Deep Cover, Tiger Tracks, or Clamp Down.We're getting G2 Sideswipe at some point, but I'm sure he'll be exclusive.
>>7238098She reminds me of Lucario. I barely followed Pokemon at that point and I was just so confused when I saw it literally everywhere.
>>7238522Korean stuff you can buy from Gmarket. Not cheap though. Korean TFs are never cheap for some reason.
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). This Megs is one of my favorite recent figures, but man this minor thing bothers me so much. I just can't figure out what tolerance is off or if I could shave something down to fix it.
>>7238524>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.>weapons guys look great though.Yeah. I already got the legends Targetmasters, but Pteraxadon looks pretty sweet. Interested to see what else is coming. I'll probably mostly be buying Micromasters, though.
>POTP>everything in the Voyager/deluxe range is a combinerWe could have had a good Grimlock and Earth mode Starscream instead of this shit
>>7238528>we might get a random guy like Deep Cover, Tiger Tracks, or Clamp Down.The main line really needs to embrace Diaclone repaints like the MP line did.>We're getting G2 Sideswipe at some pointSource? Shame he also has white on him, it'll probably be yellow, too.
>>7238528Forgot about Armada Wheejack that should have been Sideswipe, but we all know that's never happening.
>>7238185I think they based him on both of his Botcon toys, one of which was a Vector Prime repaint.
>>7238536They'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.They might take a cue from the MP and add combining 90's guns.
>>7238538That 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.
>>7238519Awful update anon
>>7238538>Vecator Prime Mold>As Alpha TrionKek
How many Optimus figures are there where he can actually hold his rifle with both hands like this? You know like a rifle?
>>7238566Come on, we've already told you last thread the bump limit is 310, and this thread is still on page 1. u special or retardid?
>>7238499Pure plastic, baby.
>>7238574You didn't tell me anything in the last thread. Wtf. Anyway,we have 310 posts so.
>>7238568you 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.
>>7238582why is he splattered with shit?
>>7238519Downgrade, you mean.
>>7238597Cybertron is covered with mud, apparently.
>>7238590hey thanks, I never even thought of trying that, looks weird but pretty cool.
>>7238607He can also two hand a sword.
>>7237952dude it's tfg people fucking lie
>>7238308I 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.
>>7238691Yooo, is that chest plate from shapeways too? Can I get a link?
>>7238702Literally 2 seconds of googling.https://www.shapeways.com/product/VERBLD788/titans-return-megatron-idw-styled-chestplate?optionId=70102681You are a lazy fuck.
>>7238533I do, sucks. Why couldn't it have happened to the shitty Hasbro Megatron?
>>7238488How is he compared to the earlier CHUG version?
>>7236043god I hate meme culture
>>7239030A lot more solid and the joints are located better. Like his knees aren't where his thighs should be.
>>7238125The correct answer.
>>7239633what the fuck were they thinking with the waist design here?
