I still don’t understand your definition of modular robots. It sounds like parts formers to me.

Why wouldn’t magmatron and voltron be a modular robot?
>>
>>10999172
No because they aren't customizable.
>>
>>10999192
With things like Fossilizers they technically are modular. But >>10999172, this thread is mostly modular robots but also a bit of a catchall for other robot toys that don't fit in anywhere. TFs got their own thread, so not much use in talking about them here. Maybe if one wanted to show off their random combined fossil/rock/weaponizer TF creations.
>>
>>10999172
that's not modular, that has very fixed configurations
>>
>>10999172
Modular means you can rearrange and swap the parts how you like. The various toy lines featured in this thread do this to varying extents, going from robots with some customization options to full on build systems. Magmatron and Voltron don't apply because they combine together in very specific ways and don't have compatibility with anything else. You can't swap out Voltron's arm with a completely different arm. There isn't another dinosaur that can form an alternate head for Magmatron. When it comes to being a modular robot, think something like Armored Core at the bare minimum.

A bit of a rant. 52toys have been pushing their douyin (aka chinese tiktok) real hard lately and as a result all their promo material are vertical video clips so they can be uploaded there easy. Even when it's just a bunch of pictures they are compiled into vertical slideshows. Really annoying.

That’s exactly what this is, unfortunately, and while I don’t hate the idea (or at least, Bandai’s implementation of it, though I won’t argue that their later RGs aren’t superior), it is definitely going to open up a can of worms, first being scale creep, as seen here:
>>11011418
>>11011613
I can get behind a couple of larger police or military brutes, but the whole line is going to bloat a bit and that is kind of a bummer when the originals were a very consistent stature. On the other hand, the female frame was always kind of larger than the base frame so this might make the new frame feel more proportionate, but I also dread the inevitable year and a half wait for a female 2.0 frame in the same style.

Been looking at Zoids. HMMs seem really fun.
In addition to HMMs, I saw this cool Chogokin Liger Zero that came out relatively recently. I think I'm gonna grab one. They sold a changing armor set for it separately, but people now resell it for double the cost of the figure. I don't have much /toy/ buying experience, but I guess there must have been a really short supply of the CAS, and I probably shouldn't expect the price on that to go down over time, right?

>I probably shouldn't expect the price on that to go down over time, right?
If anything, it might go up, unfortunately. If you haven't been looking at Japanese web stores, you might have better luck on those, though shipping will be a bitch. A cursory search on Mandarake shows they're selling the CAS for only slightly more than the base figure (35k yen versus 31k).

Very interesting. AMTS code9 Cheetah's design notes
https://weibo.com/2046374543/OgWHb0rhx
>Robot head is supposed to be protruding and locked to the back so that the engine intake lines up.

>The removable Windshield was planned to be glued on initially but it was found that pulling out the head improperly may cause breakage.

>Combined mode is named "Hermes", so they gave the head's T-Cam (cameras mounted on F1s) a backswept angle such that it looks like small wings. The T-Cam also has asymmetrical details to imitate real life ones (front cam and back cam)

>Main car they referenced was the Mercedes W03. Others were mostly 70s~80s F1s, like the Lotus '79.

>Changed to a six-wheeler midway during design to account for space required for transformation, RL example with 4 small front guide wheels is the Tyrrell P34. Other compromises made for transformation is the wide wheel axle and high ground clearance.

>Used a lot bevel cut joints for transformation to maintain the aesthetics, which can be frustrating to design.
>>
>>11017074
Lastly the protruding head is inspired by Waymasters from comic shorts by Moebius, something the designer read as a teen and left an impression.

Does anyone else agree that this figure would look better if the upper legs were proper THICC? I’ve always thought something was “off” with the proportions, but I think it would work if the hips/thighs weren’t so scrawny relative to the rest of its body.

>>11018916

It’s obviously styled to look like a cockpit (because a literal flying sword jet is a fun idea), but it would never work at 1:60 scale so it’s purely ornamental. Don’t overthink it.

fucking DUHHHHH, anon. but "iT loOkS lIkE a CoCkPiT" is not a fucking cockpit on a line that consistently includes functional cockpits and fully articulated pilots to man them. they could have made it work at scale if they cared enough. but they probably realized putting a person in a mele weapon is just dumb and dangerious

I think it's not that the upper legs are too thin, but that they're too short.

>>
>>11019788
They're pretty ok. I am neither disappointed nor super excited. They deliver exactly what they promise, quick, affordable builds with lots of easy partswap/custom potential. Some of them can feel really tiny and light though, and I do not like how much it relies on C-clips. That said, if you stick to the larger/beefier designs I think you'll be pretty pleased. Like, the recent Baskyrotto is a fantastic kit and is basically a generic Wanzer.

some of the pin connectors can feel a little loose for holding the bigger equipment sets on. but I suppose its nothing you couldnt fix with a bit of tape or a paper shim on the pin. they do feel a little light and flimsy, but thats pretty standard for model kits. all in all not bad if you want to pick up a couple, but i wouldn't go overboard with them
