What is one thing everyone is kind of excited for? Nothing you NEED, but something that looks fun.

Universe Dinobot ended up weird because of the nature of his show design. Cheetor on the other hand should be easy to design into a good toy, yet he ended up being fucking terrible
We complain about Airrachnid cause she's terrible too, but at least she looked like the character

How does the year of the snake omega supreme scale to a CW gestalt/combined form?

I am tempted, and if he scales with one or is slightly shorter I'll be a happy camper, if not I'll just cry when the over sized titan class one comes years later
>>
>>5378519
Yup, I completely agree. That's really the only reason I started kitbashing it in the first place; to try to make it a not-as-shit toy.
>>
>>5378522
Energon/YotS Omega Supreme is huge compared to any CW combiner. The only one that dwarfs him is Devastator
>>
>>5378527

Devy is kinda lanky compared to him though. I think Omega is bulky enough to display next to him.
>>
>>5378522
Omega is a head taller thant TFC Hercules, who's a head taller than CW Combiners

>>5378525

I feel so bad for you. It must suck being a fan of such an obscure and disliked toy. Hardcore headmaster fans at least has Fansproject to deliver them good re imaginings of their nostalgia bait.

Cheetor/rhinox fans? Nah.
>>
>>5378531
I thought tfc was supposed to be...oh wait he's still smaller than the official devastator.

Cheers for the images, he's a big guy but isn't a manlet nor is he over compensating, works fine for me, cheers
>>
>>5378538

CW Devastator is one of the biggest transformers ever, official or otherwise. He's shorter than metroplex and Fort Max but otherwise the biggest.

Generation toy is doing a Devy that's going to be just about the same size as the official one. The combiner ports on the limbs that are already out sit higher than the ones on mixmaster and scrapper so you can assume he'll be bigger.

But for now Devastator is king shit in terms of height.
>>
>>5378541
In overall complexity he trumps metroplex that much is certain.

Would be nice if he was scaled down though perhaps bringing down 6 deluxes to a safe and stable combination may of had issues, thus the over sized devy we have now.

I like the figure and its components as a whole, just a shame he's fan fiction size compared to his bothers
>>
>>5378546
>he's fan fiction size compared to his bothers
Think about it this way, anon.
He's Masterpiece sized!

Voyager Constructicons suddenly makes sense!


... Or if you dont have an MP collection, you can pretend he's transformers Devastation scale
>>
>>5378546

Metroplex and Devy have the same issues. A lot is sacrificed in term of making the figure huge.

If they pinned the 150 price tag, brought them to deluxe size, and put they money and resources to making the crew better you would of had a set that would give Hercules a run for his (admittedly antiquated) money.

He just scales with nothing. He's really long legged and feels a bit too simple.
>>
>>5378535
I tend to try to fix a lot of the shittier TFs that have come out over the past few years. Like Universe Hot Shot. I cut off the tail wings from his shoulders and glued 'em to the rear bumper kibble, freeing up his arms. And I made little extensions for his minicon's feet so it can actually stand on its own. I also gave Universe Ironhide and Ratchet articulated thumbs and fixed their downwards looking heads. If there's simple shit on a toy I can fix, I usually do it.
>>
>>5378552
Oh I know he's mp sized, that's why I waited for the takara one to come out.

>>5378556
I have to agree, and I own both.

One thing is for sure, not getting fort max if he is just a retool, no fancy new head won't save him unless takara makes him out of gold
>>
>>5378560

I was gonna dip on Herc until I saw generation toy's take on the crew. I have to admit I really think that these guys are gonna be the expensive top tier devastator to beat. My scraper is already in the mail.

How much does Metro retail for anyway? I know Takara jacks up prices by 20% or so for mild improvements.
>>
>>5378566
No idea, got my metroplex for $100aud with 5% off.

It was the hasbro version, long before I gained the ability to import, but looking at him now I might be hesitant on importing another figure this big.
>>
>>5378519
Didn't most of the old team leave/get fired around the time of DOTM? that's the impression I got, maybe that's just when the quality started to decline
>>
not the guy that got butripped in the last thread but if I may actually provide an answer to the guy asking why someone would buy the Hasbro Devi instead of a third party one, no one seemed to want to actually answer him.

This is all just me on this, this may apply to others but let's assume not, just stick a big IMHO in front of this whole thing.

People keep talking about the quality of 3P toys over what we get with Hasbro and frankly I've never seen it. Yes just about everything looks really good in pictures but I have yet to see a single review of a 3P toy (any 3P toy) that doesn't include the words "fiddly" "broke off" "Doesn't quite fit right" "No instructions" "just doesn't match" or some variation there of. If I'm going to pay well over $100 for a single component of a much larger combiner then it had better be fucking perfect, and yes I know they have a smaller company and they don't have the money that Hasbro does but just think for a moment. How many 3P figures these days come with large parts to fix major issues on previous releases? I can think of several off the top of my head, hell Hercules had fixes through out it's entire run and even required an add on kit almost the same cost as a figure to complete him.

In the end is CW Devi perfect, oh hell no. Is he a decent toy. Sure. Does he look like Devistator towering over my other figures, and am I terrified that if I take him apart he'll crumble, yes and no respectively.
So you enjoy paying out the ass for a really good looking very poseable toy. I have Devistator in my collection and I didn't break the bank. In the end I have something I can play with and enjoy on several levels, and you've got something that looks pretty, really shouldn't be touched, and provides an ego boost. Can't we both be happy?

TL;DR Play with what you love and love what you play with and

Gee, I wonder why...
>>
>>5378605

I respect your opinion family. I don't think third party figures are nearly as fragile as you let on, although there are several instances of shitty exceptions to that. Vangelus makes a point to chuck every 100 + dollar toy he reviews at the wall to show that they aren't flimsy pieces of shit. That whole line of reasoning seems a bit like conformation bias.

Third party toys have arguably more play value because they are capable of much more poses on average. They have a better heft due to parts count and often times die cast parts. The high price tag goes a long way towards getting a better figure.

Price disparity is a huge downside, sure, but don't imply that third party toys are only for shelf display. I guarantee that Hercules can survive more drops than devastator could.

Aren't Rhinox fans happy with the T30?

I asked a question and you refused to answer because I was apparently cyber bullying you.

Again, if criticism is trolling than I suggest you begin a blog page on tumblr so you can block my nasty words that trigger you so much.

I don't think devastator is good enough to justify the price tag considering Hasbro can do (and does) a lot better. You're entitled to disagree with me but posturing and crying rape because I said things you disagreed with is juvenile.

I should buy another one sometime to kitbash. Maybe give it articulated front cheetah legs and a balljointed head without the stupid mutant gimmick.

For those who got MP Ultra Magnus

Just wondering, would the Combiner wars UM make a good stand in for the MP with the proper add on (moving feet and waists)?
I do have some MP and all, but in term of play, they are a little bit on the big side.
The CW UM seems good but to make it perfect the additional cost would push it almost to the MP.
So, any suggest?
>>
>>5378830

It completely defeats the purpose to stand in the MP one with the Leader figure if you're gonna bridge the cost gap with upgrades to make him MP tier.

Might as well go with the actual masterpiece figure.

Some 3P stuff is spot on, some looks like a fucking mess compared to the real thing. I know I wouldn't ever go with a 3P Devy, because what Hasbro delivered looks like what it's supposed to be. The others have too much shit that looks "off", Hell, sometimes the entire color is off.

Best 3P combiner is probably Feral Rex by a mile, as it's pretty true to it's source (only thing that strikes me as "off" about it is the sword being a fiddly piece-together thing rather than a big, solid, golden Fuck-You sword of chopping), there isn't a Hasbro/Takara version, and it's apparently pretty fucking solid.

>>5379677
Only other guys I can think of that haven't gotten new toys in a few years besides those are Wreck-Gar and Scourge, but their older toys were good enough from what I hear. I only own Wreck-Gar but he's pretty cool.

I hear that we're getting a Headmaster Scourge (space boat I assume) in that same wave with Skullcruncher, Hardhead, and Blurr. I guess Legends Wreck-Gar kinda counts as a recent toy, too? Don't see the retool potential in a new one though to be honest.

In the same way that they re-did the season 1 guys in CW, because the older generations stuff is harder to find at this point, I imagine it's the same with the movie guys now.

Wouldn't be surprised if the near future has a new Tracks, Ratchet, Sideswipe, Hoist, Red Alert and Jazz, as well as Hot Rod, Scourge, Kup, and Wreck-Gar.

Yes please. Ratchet and Ironhide need justice with a new generations mold.

This is what I'm hoping for. We got CW Leader Ultra Magnus, Voyager CW Cyclonus, a TW Galvatron and Blaster coming (ok, he didn't originate in the movie, but still, he was in it), and rumors of a Scourge plus the other '86 bots.

I want my fucking full set of '86 bots! Since I'm newish to collecting I never had a chance at the Generations ones except Arcee.

To be fair I think a lot of older 3rd party stuff looks like original off-brand transforming robots you'd see at Biglots and drugstores and Chinatowns,just better engineered and articulated. It's that rigid, blocky look that feels more stiff than usual G1 stuff.

Now that the holidays are over, I'm once again hunting for TF stuff

Which is why it's all the more vexing no one (online anyway) seems to have Onslaught yet. Walmart, Toys R Us, Amazon, Hasbro themselves, etc. Because that means the only options are buying scalpershit, or having to take some shitheads double deal with Onslaught+Scattershot just to save them shelf space on a character they know won't sell.

It's not that buying a set is expensive.

I'm hoping I get to see Shockwave. Puerto Rico's pretty bad when it comes to Legends figures. They'll either show up in very small quantities, or not show up at all, not to mention only TRU carried them for a few years. It's only recently other stores started carrying them (the last wave being the only one that's shown up for more than a month).

>they're making ko's of the mp11 mold
1. Original size
2. Additional head
3. Better waist rotation
4. More diecast parts
5. More durable plastic material used

Granted I got the hasbro version but I really wanted that spiffy cape, could I get away with getting the bootleg and keeping the crown while selling off the figure?

>tfw when i just want the spiffy crown but was too cheap for the takara original
>>
>>5381307

So they're legit making one? What a shame. I should have waited a few years instead of buying that piece of shit mold.

If the thing could actually hold together it'd be a good toy, but that torso assembly is a fucking mess
>>
>>5380633
Nobody does. He goes for like $100
>>
>>5381307
I dont like getting kos, but distribution for the Hasbro one is soo shitty. and the takara one is not worth its price.

I might buy this KO, or wait for Maketoys MP Starscream

holy shit
how much does the tak one goes for?

I bought Fansproject Menasor. I bought Combiner Wars Devastator. One of them is a hell of a lot more fun to play with. Guess which one?
>>
>>5381380
Devastator? I dunno, I have alot of fun with the Constructicons

All I hear about FP Menasor is how overly complicated it is, especially Diesel...

Got RC on eBay for $80, pure luck. And Rearend is over at TFSource for about $55, I think. I got a bit of a discount by selling the hurricane parts to a friend.

Oh my got, that Menasor. He looks so nice, but I've heard nothing positive about transforming him.

>>5381375
Never seen one for sale.

>>5381364
I own an MP Starscream. I imported the Hasbro Asia Coronation Starscream during the year between releases when he was super expensive.

He is honestly one of the worst Transformers I own. His Jet mode is amazing, but his robot mode is a sloppy mess. The KO can only be an improvement.
>>
>>5378830
>Combiner wars UM

If you can get him cheap I would say go for it.
The figure is like 7/10 in my book. Not bad overall but hands and feet kinda drag an almost perfect UM to something like a deluxe class figure. I do like him more in term of the overall look than the MP though.
With that being say I am still on the fence about getting the MP though. The local sellers are having pre order for the next rerelease and they are only about 100 usd.
>>
>>5381380

>Cherry picking

Fansproject Menasor is overpriced trash and Devastator is cheap trash. Should have bought quantron instead.
>>
>>5381046
Didn't Hasbro say they will not be at the London one this year?
>>
>>5381524
I thought that was last year? Not that it makes a difference, since they show lit'ruly nothing.

For titans return, who would you guys rather get over Sentinel Prime, Galvatron, and Blaster?

Last year they were in London. That's where we saw Devastator.

I'm willing to import this, hell I'll be happy if takara does him exclusively for their market even if its an online only exclusive.

The less the wait the better

Wait, you're right. Sorry. And I'm the anon who posted that first pic after the guys from the biggest Italian toy store chain managed to be the first one in the world showing it on their Facebook page.

Ironically, Italy isn't getting it. And we are getting Ultra Magnus only now.

>>
>>5381588
>only an mp would deter me at this point
>>
>>5381591

Is it because they have a lot of blackwash and that means the figures are black and subject to police brutality?

Or is it because they just looked fucked up and the police fuck people up during police brutality.

I've been trying to figure out the joke for like five minutes now.

>MP line/ Takara
>Caring about headmasters

More likely to see beastformers.
>>
>>5381605
Still, I feel this is currently a issue that Hasbro has, they feel the need the ram in all these characters into lines, over more suitable characters. They don't need to rush it, do it organically.
>>
>>5381608
But was thunderwing a triple changer?

>>5381609
I don't care for the headmaster gimmick, I'd be trying to ignore it as much as possible until they split the head from a body I like

And if they make an mp astrotrain I'll be burning my headmaster in a fucking bonfire
>>
>>5381614

There's at least two quality 3p astrorains out right now if you don't need an official Takara product.
>>
>>5381616
The one out of those I really liked had some qc issues, that and more variants don't have the top of the head painted.

The price for them I just can't justify either

FP menasor is going to get pushed over by the new kids on the block.

> More 3rd party combiners

Hasn't Combiner Wars killed this market? You can get an entire pretty alright Combiner for the cost of one bootleg limb.
>>
>>5381692
>Hasn't Combiner Wars killed this market?
No. There are a lot of people who want good representations of their favorite robots because they are highly discriminating collectors. They don't just want to own a toy to "check it off the list", they want to own it because they like the way it looks. Out of all the CW gestalts, Menasor, in particular, looks like a pile of hot garbage.

A "pretty alright" combiner may as well be non-existent to a discerning collector with disposable income. I'm not really into combiners in the first place, but with me, a toy is usually "want" or "don't want", and money is no object if it falls into the first category. Pretty much all of Combiner Wars fell into "don't want", and it didn't matter how cheap they were. They could have sold them for half the price and I wouldn't have bought them because I don't like the way they look.
>>
>>5381737

I get this idea but there are generally so many liberties taken on 3rd party that they don't look "perfect G1" either.
>>
>>5381744
It's not even about being "perfect G1" (to me, at least), I just want a quality product.

But you're right, most turd parties go overboard with their engineering and greebling. They're too focused on trying to beat Takara/Hasbro at their own game, or add their own touch to a figure. I wish there were a happy medium. Some 3P products are finally getting in line and learning to tone it down to match the MP aesthetic, which is pretty great.
>>
>>5381692
You can say that for Superion, and somewhat Bruticus and Defensor, but for Menasor? You can't tell me that he looks great, he's built like an aging lesbian. Even the 3rd party ones don't look great. FPs take on him is meh and overengineered while somehow becoming lazy with the legs by just stapling cars onto stilts.

As far as I'm concerned we don't have a good representation for Menasor yet, G1 or not.
>>
>>5381744
Yeah you REALLY have to like the style or settle since there's no other. That's what a lot of people did before CW. it's what I've done with Animated Wasp. They never gave him his car mode and I settled for the 3P mini bumblebee repaint. Mind you it didn't cost hundreds like the 3P combiners do, but still.
>>
>>5381744
This.

These companies only target G1 characters, yet they never seem to nail the aesthetic
>>
>>5381773
Yeah, they fucking suck in that regard, the only groups I've seen nail there intended aesthetic is planet X and whoever did those DJD figures.
>>
>>5381781
I wish more 3P companies did Classics/Generations aesthetics. All it seems to be now is MP-styled stuff.

Yeah, I want to see some shit that wouldn't look out of place on my classics shelf. Hell, they dont even need to be classic g1 characters, just give me some solidly designed transformer toys that don't stick out like an overly designed thumb.

My biggest dream 3rd party line would be something that just focuses on unconventional alt modes. Taxi-cabs, Busses, farm equipment. I mean I know it would probably be too risky to pull off, but I'd like to see 3rd party stuff -expanding- my toy roster. Most everybody liked Steel Core right?

Maybe not cramming every surface with blocky greebly detail might actually make them less expensive too.
