BFB Magic Henshin is an all female combiner. ignoring the problems over its budget and dev time it had the right idea of using an unorthodox layout to get a more feminine body shape. You could probably do the same with devastator but you'd probably have to remove some members and drastically redesign others. Pic unrelated.

Since the original Devastator has a whole bunch of leftover parts , it might be okay to have it be frame bullshit.
>>
>>10921282
I doubt you'd need a whole frame. Henshin combiners biggest problem was trying to have red serve triple duty as a head, chest and both arms and the legs being massive due to them having to combine into a jet. Legs on Devy are blocky and wouldn't be as bad, both arms could be one Robot split in half for the thin feminine look, or include two robots and forearm vehicles like GT Devy If you wanted the huge articulated hand look like >>10920906

They really should have made the legs smaller or the torso robots much bigger. I know Iceberg wanted the figures to be roughly Desktop army sized, but it wouldn't have been a big deal if a few weren't.
>that whole line was such incredible squandering of a great idea.
To be fair he was given no time to develop them, and then exactly a week to make the upgrade kit fix before preorders started. Hopefully the Orange Cat figures turn out well. They definitely seem a lot better engineered, especially with legs that open into wings or split into four horse legs instead of just hanging off the back.

I'm actually quite fond of the NBK version, the transparent orange parts give him a Cybertronian look, and I'm one of those weirdos who prefers that. Upgrade kits for the CHUG-scale versions are extremely rare now, I made the thigh extensions myself. I'll see about uploading them to Cults3D or Thingiverse this weekend, for free, of course, they're janky Tinkercad shit but make him look better IMO.
>>
>>10922503
The NBK guys look really cool with the additional purple too.
Speaking of Constructicons, I kinda wanna get 1 (one) of the ToyWorld individuals as a standalone figure to go with my small MP display. Who would the /3pg/ recommend? I like how Scrapper looks a lot, but the track functionality on Bonecrusher and Scavenger is tempting, I'm a sucker for working tracks.
>>
>>10922877
Shame they didn't get Scavenger's colors right but I paid $10 a toy so I can't complain much. Probably brought down the cost to do it that way.

I wouldn't recommend any of the toyworld set to be completely honest, scrapper and hook are probably the most solid but they're still shinier turds on top of a shitpile

GrungeWerx, now there's a name I hadn't heard in a very long time. He was a really good artist; absolutely in my top tier along with Makoto Ono (who also probably hasn't been around in years).

The fan art scene has definitely seen better days. I haven't seen lunacy so much as lazy and derivative though. TFW's art section is nothing but digibashes with the occasional cringy photocomic. Yawn. I feel like anybody with skill or style either got hired or got fed up with being sidelined. Not like the media (or lack thereof) is inspiring any new artists either.

If your other characters are super toon, fanstoys is your only option. If you prefer the more classic masterpiece/dreamwave g1 style I think XTB toro is fantastic. Fits right in the mp bumblebee 1.0 and the transformation is super easy to flip back and forth.

It's a bad photo or they hot glued it. I have the blue version and it actually looks good.

>>10924882
It's a FansToys figure so yeah the transformation is shit and features not a single second of fun. BUT both modes are really on point and no other Cliffjumper figure looks this nice. I guess it all depends on what you're looking for. If the transformation is really important to you, yeah, definitely get something else, maybe MMC's.

>>10925692

>>10925692
bbts doesn't do free replacement parts any more - just product swaps or refunds if you ship the item back. They are plenty nice about it - they just don't offer that any more.

ShowZ while having next to 0 communication, will send you replacement parts if something breaks with no questions asked so long as you provide images.

ShowZ will also be cheaper.

I like BBTS - they have never done me wrong -but unless they have what you want on sale, or they are the last available option there isn't much of a point in buying your item from someplace cheaper (unless you're gungho about keeping money in the US or something - but then they just buy the products from overseas anyways).
>>
>>10926051
>ShowZ while having next to 0 communication, will send you replacement parts if something breaks with no questions asked so long as you provide images.
I tried this one time with them and it literally took 3 months for me to get the part with zero communication. By that time I'd just bought a new one.

>>10926078
Part availability depends on the factory, not ShowZ. Dreamstar parts took a week or two while Trojan Horse took a month and a half.

People's collections became too compartmentalized. GT Devy is from the dying days of "just make a general design in a sort of Classics/Generations scale and mash it in a collection." Now?
Generations basically fills sports in the roster within 5-7 years, generally. We're getting second updates on combiners. Even if they aren't as good as 3P classics, they match the aesthetic and scale more.
There's Legends competing for the bulk of 3P buck and it's largely toon accurate G1, or a few like Iron Factory, GT won't scale with those
MP is basically wrapping up or redoubling and making G1-ier versions.
There's just no spot for it in a collection if you're trying to match
>>
>>10926423
Also GT Devy is one of the most KOed Combiners ever. On that note, does the reissue have the chrome drum and chestplate? Its the only thing stopping me from buying the Jinbao version, which is 60$, larger, still has the upgrades available and I believe isnt simplified.

You probably want to look at legends scale stuff if you want cheap 3P
They look great but they’re a lot more simplistic and they are pretty small if that’s a downside for you, usually a similar size to the G1 toys
>>
>>10928939
you do not understand the value of a dollar. Transformers are one of the most complex major action figure brand and they've kept prices very low compared to other figures on the market. A Marvel Legends figure and a Transformer cost roughly the same, but every Transformer mold needs to be engineered from the ground up, while most figures are just sculpts on premade bucks.

Also why did you come to the third party thread to complain about official Transformers, especially if you don't know anything about the brand in general?

>>10929089
If he's mad about retail figures he's going to balk at the idea of a figure that's 4 inches and over 50 dollars.

just pulled the trigger on Metal Black Panther. I only collect CHUG scale stuff, but since he's a made up character it doesn't matter if he's huge. he's just a big cool sabertooth guy.

>>
>>10929096
I came for the same reason i always come, to look at cool transformers and for once, shared a recent experience of actually buying an official line model.

As for price, that just tells you how much your getting ripped off on non transformers doesn't it? But if you have some insider knowledge, lay it out.

As to my knowledge of transformers, meh. I grew up with G1 and poke my head in from time to time. The recent comics aren't exactly thrilling with their obsession with gender identity etc.

Maybe assume less about what's in someones else's head or not. you do you anon.
>>
>>10929089
thanks, i'll check it out.

My tastes are admittedly weird, I like the look of the chibi masters made bots and keep checking ebay to see if i can pic up an apollo. The constructacon set would be good too.

One thing i will say about these higher end 3P is they actually look like the vehicle (usually) instead of say a plane on top and a bunch of bulky shit underneath. I remember seeing a harrier jet one that went for 120 a while back that was superb on this, and a green helicopter one as well. these 3p guys really do put in the efforts.

I don’t believe that’s a part of the new comics anon
Are you confusing it with the new cartoon

How is the material and build quality on these higher end 3P bots? Any makers that are prone to problems that are best avoided?

Kinda related, but not, are there and good 3P mechwarrior/battletech or macross style makers out there? Regarding the mechwarrior/battletech i mean making larger stuff not table top scale.

He's reposted his old art of Kabuto, but his statement about departing BFB in 2022 is still up. Note that he doesn't repost BFBs announcement posts but did for an unrelated mech toy today.
>is Iceberg still getting paid
I'm assuming as a designer+artist he was paid for his initial art and prototype years ago while other employees took over finalizing the toy. If GS is really reviving the line I hope he gets more work or that there is plenty of designs he made for them that BFB that they can use. I'd hate for it to be a BeastBox situation where the aesthetic changes completely once new designers come in.

>>10931395
I don’t see this a retool, there’s too much origami-engineering specific to the Bugatti. They’ll have to start from scratch to make an identical looking robot mode turn into a Mercedes.

There's no reason to buy the restocked Terrorcons since there's not been any announcement of Hunn-Gurr for years, right? And if they do release him, they'll surely do a whole set?

That price and that being a pre order, I'm pretty sure it's someone's traded in collection with them.

wrong. The ones still available don't have the individual robot weapons or the iron bar. I got mine for like 30 dollars and he's fine but I want the full set.

Swindle is the one of the set I grew to hate despite being pretty neutral about him pretty early on. Honestly he's my least favorite legends to transform, even worse than painted MS Megatron.
I can't get that fucker to transform properly as a leg so I had to remove his arms to make everything fit.

Different srokes for different folks as they say. I only have the devy set but I don't mind the complexity too much, everything is still straightforward and intuitive enough that I was able to figure out the transformations without any instructions, getting long haul and hook together still sucks after multiple combinations though.

The plastic flashing definitely sucks but I do have to credit where it's due, that shit is truly durable. I accidentally glued mixmasters chest solid trying to thicken the slider like a retard, and I muscled the FUCK out of that thin sheet of plastic to break the bond, with absolutely no visible damage or anything

They feel very bulbous and clay like if you ask me.
There’s also a lot of bulk in the crotch and thighs so they feel wider than most bots.

Did anyone keep the April Fool's coupon that Bombusbee posted a few days ago ? The page is still active (https://www.bombusbee.net/art/do-not-click--a0053.html) but they removed the code.

>>10938643
I find floor polish rubs off way too easily on ball joints (in my experience anyway) so I usually just put some material in the joint like an extremely tiny strip of paper or duct tape folded in on itself. I did something similar for the thigh swivels of devy, actually.
But I hadn't realized just thow tight the couplings are on the little guys. They have tiny tabs that hug the balljoint from the inside, and being made of ABS... yeah, it's not too hard to see how I exploded it
Lesson learned at least

Didn't they go back to full nylon for Devastator? I remember them saying that after complaints about their Menasor, Shockwave and others being partly ABS.
>>
>>10938986
It isn't full nylon, more like 99%. Though I can't speak for every version of it, the hip connections on the tread legs are all ABS for this one. Not that I think it's too big an issue since they easily have the most flexible range out of the whole set, you'd really have to go out of your way to break them

in fairness, waspinator and inferno were females, because with bugs that's usually the more iconic version with the most weapons. Just in the case of beetles with big cool head appendages, that's the males..

Better than most combiner wars stuff, but it's got some choices that are certainly not TF styled, and the friction joints could be a problem if posed a lot, but if someone wants, some joint tightening stuff and customization would be fine.

The worst is the orange helicopter, but the second worst is boatshoes. His conning tower is centered, inappropriately, and you can't easily move it, and his robot mode is compromised badly.

Boatshoes and gunny swindle have their panels for alt mode limiting their articulation in robot mode, the others are okay.

Plastic feels like most of the DX9 hulkie KOs, but jetwing shield is unfortunately very reliant on part forming, so the kibble is a bit floppy.

Legends G2 that aren't repaints when?

>>10943079
TransArt teased Apelinq and Botcon 2001 Tigatron a year or two ago. They've already done Primal Prime, Botcon 2001 Arcee, and Transmetal Packrat so it's just a matter of time before they complete the Botcon 2001 Wreckers lineup.

Also, FansHobby did Armada Overload and they're pretty good about doing variants so maybe they'll do a Sentinel Maximus eventually. HIs Mini-Con is Apelinq.

I mean, it's doable but... Why? So many of those steps and moving parts just feel like they're in there for the sake of it. Grimlock is like Prime in that his transformation is always so straightforward and obvious that you shouldn't go trying so hard to fix what ain't broke to begin with.

>>10944136
I'm guessing we'll get an EX version in silver and a standard G2. No way in hell will they bother with G2 concept or shattered glass or anything of the sort.

Honestly, I rather like the NA one. Only problems with it are the backward knees in dino mode, which I can fix myself when I stop being lazy, and the exposed inner legs in bot mode. I will admit that the exposed legs IS pretty shitty because FT has proven that an uncomplicated solution exists so there was really no excuse for it. At least it doesn't look too bad on the EX version. Looks not great on the other versions though. I know they gave the leg panels with Sludge but fuck the partsforming.

Posted about this in /tfg/, but since it does concern a 3P upgrade of sorts then it might be worth a shot asking it here too: Does anyone have any pictures of MP Skyfire / Jetfire with the Toyhax label sheet? As usual, their website doesn't include a single standard full-body shot of him for some reason.

I can't quite put my finger on it but something about that looks really off and kind of flat, plus that transformation looks like a bit of a nightmare. Tail articulation looks pretty cool though. Still, I'll wait for TA.
