TARGET ON!

Old thread:
>>5400660

Is Generations Scourge a good toy, /tfg/? I own Cyclonus and wanna give him a buddy. His Generations design has really been growing on me, too. I like it way more than the space-boat thing from G1.
>>
>>5403671
For the line he's average. I still have one in box since I forgot I had it.
>>
>>5403671
Well he doesn't come with a targetmaster if that's what your after.
He does have a nifty transformation and good articulation.
>>
Part of the art work for Fortress Maximus a.k.a. "Metrople with new duds" leaked, and it seems he really will have the Master Sword.
>>
>>5403671
Cyclonus is a more solid figure, but scourge has a lot more articulation.

I'd like scourge a lot more, but facial hair on transformers has always been kind of weird to me. Except in animated. Maybe because they seemed more like people in costumes with their designs.
>>
>>5403690
I don't care for the character, but a massive sword sounds awesome.

>but facial hair on transformers has always been kind of weird to me
Yeah, I was initially reluctant at buying Scourge because the whole beard on him looked really weird and out of place on a TF. But the design is starting to grow on me, and I own RTS Wreck-Gar and I really enjoyed him- so I wanna give Scourge a chance, too. I adore his colors and his bot mode silhouette.

>they seemed more like people in costumes with their designs
Man, they did that a lot with the Season 3/'86 Movie guys, huh? A lot of them have those weird pastel colors, non-silver/grey faces, and abstract-ass altmodes. The toys for those guys suffered so much, man. Just look at poor, poor G1 Kup or Blurr.

Floro Dery wanted them to look "more human than human". He's an interesting guy. And those are only the designs that got approved.
>>
>>5403732
He will be a blue Air Raid, Skydive has the right wings, but Air raid has better shoulder proportions.
>>
>>5403755
Air Raid's better since it has a similar arm configuration for Leokaiser.

I'll be glad when his source gets fired.
>>
>>5403765
Walky chose to attack Dery out of jealousy, what do you expect from someone who befriends Jin Autismtome?
>>
>>5403765
It's very upsetting the way the fandom treated Dery. he didn't remember every last precise detail of a show he worked on for two years in the 80's, and he got a little pissed when people who were shitting their pants in the 80's tried to tell him he was wrong. I mean,w ho wouldn't be pissed if someone tried to correct you on your own life experiences?

It's easy to say "Floro Dery is lying about coming up with the idea for a transforming planet, because this Diaclone sketch proves otherwise!". When in reality its just as likely he came up with the idea independent of that, and never saw the sketch.
>>
>>5403775
the average Hasbro fan is mentally retarded. Upsetting, but not surprising.
>>
>>5403763
Just rotate Skydive shoulders.
>>
Are you ready for the release of Desert Storm Sideswipe, Drift, and Windblade?
>>
>>5403793
Ok, that works. Still think it's weird the set doesn't give you two of the same plane, since you can't pull off the arm look with different shoulders.
>>
>>5403783
See pic.

>>5403796
That guy Quillfire really reminds me of Blot.
>>
>>5403775
it's because Wanky thinks that his unfunny shit-filled wiki is somehow a big contribution to Transformers, moreso than the guys who created the franchise.

Shame no one will ever run him down in the Botcon parking garage.
>>
>>5403796
Only if they fix sideswipes shoulders.
>>
Welp, BBTS just put up an Onslaught pre-order for $25, so the moment that ships, I won't be able to buy Onslaught online.

I really do want a Blot redeco from that mold.
Blot is the only Terrorcon I care about.

Silverbolt-Snoop

Brawl-Destroyer
Vortex-Warpath
Breakdown-Spoiler
Assuming we get a Lightspeed retooled from a CW car and he looks more like G1 Lightspeed and less like a regular car-Psycho

Powerglide as Bad Boy or Shockwave painted as RoGun (i'm only a little kidding lol)

Good. Breastforce sounds like a terrible porno name about titty superheroes.

>Gaihawk-> Skyhawk

Gonna say they'll be lazy and just name him Guyhawk via romanizing him or something. Skyhawk sounds redundant.

>Killbison-> Blastbison

Sounds like a Megaman X boss.

>Hellbat-> Shadebat

No idea what they could call him. Draculabat for all we know.

>Drillhorn-> (still) Drillhorn

Doubt he's getting name changes, yeah.

>Deathsaurus-> Dezarus/however japan romanized the name or Darksaurus

No idea what he'll end up named, but that sounds plausible.

So according to the Turd Party thread, third party companies have started making toys with sculpted on wheels that don't roll.

Of course people are insisting that wheels don't have to roll

Plane-Scourge goes well with space-jet Galvatron
>>
>>5404019
>no, that was whatever year those shitty FOC toys came out.

This.

DESU, 2014 was my favorite year since the end of HFTD/RTS. We got a crazy variety of toys from all eras of Transformers, with build quality way above FoC and slightly above where we are right now with CW. Every toy fair and convention we got exciting new reveals that nobody could have predicted.

With cost-cutting continuing apace and a GEEWUNNER in charge of product development, I don't foresee us having as good a year again in a long, long time.
>>
>>5404206
Aside from Hardhead, Skullcruncher, and Galvatron, and Eject, Titans returns seems very disappointing to me.

Most of the designs are either bland, or bad.
>>
>>5404226
I think Blaster looks good, and I'm really excited for the inevitable Astrotrain from Sentinel.
>>
>>5403800
Wait, seriously? LioKaiser won't be using the same jets for both arms? Holy shit, you're right. WOOOOOW. It's like they're intentionally shitting the bed. I give up. Fuck everything.

>>5404028
Heckbat.
>>
>>5404226
Yeah it sucks that the only figures they're making have all already been shown. Every single one of them.
>>
>>5404231
You really want a set that has 4 limb molds with 2 of them being the same mold a piece? Is this a lazy energon combiner now?
>>
>>5404239
If they show something interesting later, then I'll change my mind, but so far, it's not looking that interesting to me.

>>5404230
I think his robot mode works, I'm apathetic to his base mode, and his boom box mode looks ridiculous. He's like a 6 out of 10 to me.

Soundwave on the other hand? Awful.
>>
>>5403671
Gen Scourge is one of the best modern transformers, imho.
There is no exposed hollowness, robot and alt mode are pretty solid, and the wings open to store the guns.
I guess he's underrated but he's easily the best among cyclonus and galvatron.
>>
Same 3d printed computron dude here. Would people be interested in a defensor upgrade aswell? Been thinking about doing a small run of upgrades, just wanna know who would be interested in this kinda stuff.

Main stuff I'd like to do:
>New headsculpt
>Two eye/glasses
>two mouth/facial expressions
>New crotch than attaches to ladder
>Pieces that add bulk to thighs
>G1 guns
> New blades rotors to emulate G1 look
>New blades lower arms to emulate G1 look
> G1 weapons

The Blades kit has been finished and I will post tomorrow if interested. I also have some additional ideas as well, but I'll hold those back. I'm just interested if I should do a run of these? Would people have the interest? P.E's upgrades are awesome and they would be similar to those, but with a lot more added in.
>>

The deluxe Arielbots were pretty bad.

as a leg, it thickens up the look quite a bit, which I actually prefer, especially on Defensor, who looks out of place with one skinny component. As an arm. it's really not too much different either.

Pins are difficult to get out, and they're even more difficult to get back in again. In order to remove the bombs for a bombing run, the pin would need to be removed. It would then be extremely taxing, if not literally impossible to get back in, ergo the toy would now be 'fucked'.

Same, I don't even care about Abominus, but Blot is cool.
Wish we had an Animated Blot toy, there's just this kickass custom
>>
>>5404702
Hasbro could quite easily make an Abominus combiner by retooling Sky Lynx, then making two new molds, one for Sinnertwin and another to be used by Rippersnapper and retooled into Blot. Cutthroat could be an extremely heavy retool of an Aerialbot. The molds could then be used for Monstructor and possibly Predaking.

Also people complaining about I think 3rd party hip armor on Defensor/Bruticus getting in the way of his legs, that's because his hip articulation is fucked due to it not being where his hips are visually.
I wonder if there are enough stupid customers that will buy stuff that doesn't really fix things on a flawed figure. I look at that and I go "No. You need to give me more."

I think I know why Scattershot got released next to Onslaught. Because another toy was planned, but it fell through, forcing them to make a last minute addition to fill out the wave. Since the Scattershot tooling existed for the planned Computron, they decided to use it for the replacement.

I have no proof at all and this is nothing but speculation, but it seems like a logical chain of events.

I wager it's less of it fell through and more of they didn't want the case to be just Onslaught.
As to why is a million dollar question since the current case ratio between Onslaught and his limbs are 4 to 1.

I have a question: why is /toy/'s go-to bogeyman "poorfags?'

It's like seeing people call everyone Reddit on other boards. f you don't like something, you're too poor to buy it. If you think something is overpriced, you're too poor to afford it. If you complain about scalping, you're too poor to pay scalper prices.

The Transformers guys call the other Transformers guys poor, the 3P guys call the Transformers guys poor, the Anime figure guys call the 3P guys poor, and the 1/6 guys call the Anime guys poor.

It feels like everybody's trying to justify their spending habits by saying that everyone would buy the same things they do if they were rich enough.
>>
>>5405031
Elitism, when you have money its an entitlement to solve all of the problems toy collecting has, don't like the deco of one toy, buy its more expensive japanese cousin, don't like the default configuration, buy 3rd party parts, don't like the figure at all, buy the third party, second one voices an argument about the price, no matter how logical, "you're a poor fag".

My wardrobe is overflowing on shit and I got called a poorfag because my mp seeker collection is based on stock hasbro versions I bought long after release over the takara ones.

You can't win with these people, hell I honestly believe they say it just to tick you off for the fun of it, wouldn't surprise me they just want to turn the wheels of drama since none of us can really claim we aren't poor fags other than words on a screen
>>
>>5405055

>>5405031
>Elitism

It's pretty much this. In collecting, the more money you spend, the more hardcore you are. Somebody who spends less money than you isn't as committed. There's also the fact that if you suggest something is overpriced, it also implies that people who buy it are paying too much. Some people take that as you saying they're being stupid.
>>
Having money > having the respect of nerds because you bought a bunch of shit

It's why I prefer emulation to real hardware. I get the games for free. Gamers don't like me for it? Fine. AVGN, Pat, AlphaOmegaSin, they all live in shitty houses because they blew all their cash on gaming crap, their collections are all thrown haphazardly onto cheap shelf boards attached with those crappy shelf brackets and their homes look like cruddy thrift stores piled with ugly junk. It's not even pleasing displays because it's loose cartridges with worn labels lined up in tight formations.

Gamers can thumb their noses at me for running emulators for all I care, I don't respect them very highly in return because they live like slobs surrounded by junk.

Same deal with toys- do you want respect of junk hoarders? Take that insult and wear it like a badge of honor.

All my G1, gone it seems. Dunno how this stuff escaped the attic, or the house sale of my grandma's, or anything.

And this is the last bit of it. Unfortunately, I found only one foot, and no fists. And of course the G2 Devy I had earlier doesn't have his chestplate, but he's otherwise nearly complete.

Hi. Welcome to toy collecting.
>>
>>5405643
Probably online exclusive like Slingshot and Wildrider were.
>>
>>5406045
I wonder if he'll keep all his clear plastics
>>
>>5406045
I'm still skeptical about Deluxe Groove coming to the US, but it's possible Hasbro is holding out until the Combaticons and Takara's Shuttle Blast Off are fully released so they can release Groove alongside Blast Off, kinda like hoe they released Slingshot and Wildrider together.
>>
>>5406080
If Afterburner was an indication, no.
>>
>>5406080
>>5406086
Legends Shockwave used clear plastic, right? And so do a bunch of the RID Minicons and the Leader Seekers. I don't think Hasbro is purposely avoiding clear plastic considering that.

But it's possible all the springs and ratchets in the deluxes and voyagers means Hasbro can't use clear plastic without going over the price point the toy would sell at. That's my theory on it, anyway.
>>
>>5406045
Maybe in a 2-pack as "Emergency" Groove and "Deep Space" Blastoff, or a 3-pack with Slingshot and Wildrider for 99 dlls.
>>
>>5406098
It's not so much that clear plastic is a no-no, it's the number of plastic sprues allocated to a figure.

The legend Shockwave has 3 (purple, grey and clear pink). Most CW deluxes get 4 (which includes that hand/foot).

Meanwhile, the Takara Groove has 6 (white, off-white, black, clear, clear blue and clear red). If we take that mold straight from Takara, now were have to take a figure that was designed to have 6 different plastic colors, covered with just 4. Unlike Shockwave, most of the parts can't be cast in clear, because the plastic has to hold up as joints, or it would require a ton of paint to make it looks good.

You know what? Speaking of Lockdown I haven't finished AoE, but I did at least see when Lockdown popped his hook out. My inner fangirl squealed.

Thought you meant Lockdown and Ratchet, they reference their animated rivalry in the bios, even the stolen "EMP emitter" the motor vents from Lockdown have a unique peg that can only fit in Lockdown and the deluxe Ratchet.

Oh hey I forgot about that little gimmick. Yeah I wouldn't count the ratchet figure since he was an already established movie character.

I got the Bruticus deluxes but Onslaught is waiting for Skylynx on bbts, still not sure what to do with Scattershot.
>>
>>5406098
>>5406150
I wager we will get him with only the clear plastic with the rest in clear or white and they will just paint the sirens
>>
>>5406449
Turn it into a "true" Betatron by making 99% of the combined mode grey like a prototype/mock-up. Then either keep the parts exposed only in bot mode the same color (like Scattershot has just gotten gestalt parts installed into him) or paint the robot parts black/white/greyscale.
>>
>>5406449
No point getting him
He's in a gift set later
>>
>>5406458
I think Anon has him from buying that Voyager bundle.
>>
>>5406241
Got two, one when they started cropping up, and a second when they had a two for one sale somewhere.
>>
>>5406459
Why is he waiting for onslaught with skylynx then?
>>
>>5406464
Why is that so easy for us to do that?
I have the CW stunticons twice over breakneck included
I don't even like any of them short of dead end.
>>
>>5406458
Had to get him as >>5406459 said, can't cancell him now, I was working on custom deluxes but then the oficial was confirmed, funny thing, the back up plan was to use the custom Nosecone for a custom Liokaiser, but then he got confirmed as well.

Oh. Never mind.

He could also make him into Combiner Wars Saber.

You're probably in that "I need them all phase" all of us have gone through or will go through.

That's literally the only time I've bought two of the exact same toy, I don't even buy recolors, and I'll rarely get a retool (the main reason I've barely gotten anything in CW.

Toy bin Anon from earlier, here with a tiiiiny update.

After rooting through the assloads of Lego's in the bin, I've pulled out what might be some Transformer weapons. And a Pretender(?) shell, plus a single Ramjet fist.

Other than what might be a Dinobot sword, anyone got an idea who these weapons might go to?
>>
>>5406474
>the CW stunticons twice over
you have all the stunticons twice? why? after i was done with menasor i was done with stunticons. i complete the teams that were in the show and thats it.

cyclonus can fuck off, i only got battle core pirme for a nova prime and as far as the autobot repaints i have ironhide. i went through the "gotta have them all phase" with the first of generations. i got drift, skullgrin, straxus, thunderwing and blackshadow just because i was desperate for more classics cons. out of all of them the only one i really like is black shadow.

I went through that phase for the first part of CHUG and the first 2 movies. I then realized I didn't need a lot of these. especially with CHUG ironhide and galvatron. Same goes for the early RotF stuff.
>>
>>5406538
That is indeed a Pretender known as Pincher. SHame you lost the bot, he's a badass scorpion.

http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Pincher_%28G1%29
>>
>>5406539
Because I kept finding them on sale.
Drag strip and Offroad I got for 6 each on Amazon during a big toy sale
Found the second Dead End, and Breakdown at a go calanders clearance for 7 each
Black jack I got for $2 on Amazon renently with Motomaster for $12.
I think breakneck was $13 which isn't great but for an exclusive I got panicky and bought that second one to be safe.
I have done similar with all the CW guys so far. Bruticus has been the worse yet because I got the whole set gifted for Christmas and I still bought the set when it showed up in my stores.
>>
>>5406581
You need help.

>especially with CHUG ironhide and galvatron
so much regret. also i spent like 40 bux on universe ratchet. looking back i wish i went into the movie lines better. because at the start of DOTM i had no idea who was going to be in it so i bought all the toys just in case. i bought DOTM jolt, skids and mudflap, some ugly ass bumblebee. DOTM was full of regret. it was after that line was i done being a completionist. but if the toy is part of a team i love i feel i have to get it.
>>5406581
good lord man. food for thought, just because its cheap does not mean you should get it. i love the stunticons but not so much to get them twice.

The Pretender shell is Pincher.

The purple turret thing looks like one of the Combaticon vehicle mode weapons.

no its a rescuebot.

Chrome rifle with the circle in it is Jazz's
Purple turret is G2 Brawl
The fist is probably G2 Ramjet
Rest of the bits and bobs I don't have a clue outside of the little chrome stick being a lego spear.

I work at a hospital as the repair guy
I do at best 2 hours of work a day while the rest is me sitting waiting for a call. I get paid stupid well so 6+ hours of dead time with the Internet and money can make you buy silly things
I'm better than I use to be with shit
Back in 2009 I was buying every game released without question, when I saw the hoard I made by the end of the year I sold everything I didn't play off and swore never to do it again. Yet here I am with these stupid CW guys being the right level of fun to get me blowing cash stupidly again.

No. They're just toddler toys.
>>
>>5406626
if you only get the cannon teams and not get the autobot repaints then you should be fine. i was really bad with buying marvel legends when i got my first job and now i have a shit tone of toys of characters i know nothing about. i recently went through my collection and put a bunch in storage. i left the ML from the movies out and like 2 or 3 from comics i really like the design of. and at the time i was only making 9 bux an hour and trying to college. i could have saved so much money if i did not buy a lot of them. $300 easy.

Are Generations Thunderwing and Skullgrin good toys?
>>
>>5406678
for thunderwing no not really. for the character he is a poor excuse for a thunderwing. alt mode is alright, backpack is big and the shoulder spikes get in the way of moving the arms forward.
skullgrin on the other hand is pretty cool. a bunch of guns, a pick axe and i love the colors. down side is the back kibble. i want a do over for thunderwing as a leader class.
>>
>>5406678
Thunder suffers the usual jet curse of his robot mode being more or less stand up legs out shame
Decent possibility good details and paint apps
Skulls alt mode is a blast to play with and has good possablity
Colors blur details however and it makes him somewhat blan
>>
>>5406686
Good luck, you need to both get a year of Pretenders and even then there is still a 50/50 he will just be a white redeco of a Starscream.

Gen Scourge is, dare I say, a better toy than Cyclonus. That's why I'm selling my Gen Cyclonus and keeping him.

By the way, does anyone want a Gen Cyclonus?
>>
>>5406759
How much?
>>
>>5406765
Uh, ten bucks? I could bundle some other stuff in there. I'd have to take inventory but I have some old stuff from around that era.
>>
>>5406759
i see why you think that. thinkinga bout it now scourge is the better toy, cleaner alt mode, arms ahev a bunch of the necessary joints, wrists, bicep joint, ankle tilts, waist, all that good stuff.
>>
Can the 3P guys come post on here? Somebody's being a negative asshole in our thread and killing it.
>>
>>5406777
No, because you are a blatant false flag.
>>
>>5406774
Yeah, pretty much all this. I mean, Cyclonus is a great toy, they both are. But Scourge edges out with that clutch alt (some awesome transformation touches, and though the entire front is his legs, the alt itself is so damn sleek it's incredible) and the additional articulation in a ll the right places.
>>
Is Classics Mirage still good? I only own the CW Mirage. What about RtS Perceptor? And how is the Universe Datsun mold? I kinda like the look of the Prowl. I own CW Prowl as well if that means anything.
>>
>>5406875
Mirage is great, really nice articulation, only con is how stylized he is, Perceptor has a shitty arm conection, but overal he is pretty good, the Datsuns on the other hand are bad designed, from the akward transformation where you'll have to pop the wings so the paint don't scratch, to the sticky paint in most of the prowl copies, also the weird proportions with the high neck and the sad face.
>>
>>5406150
I've got UW Groove in front of me, and his windshield is one clear piece with clear blue, clear red, and opaque white paint. His guns are also clear, with clear red and opaque gunmetal paint. So he's still only four sprues.
>>
>>5406875
Datsun mold is pretty nice looking in alt, but the robot modes are pretty lame despite some decent articulation. Transformation is hit and miss.
>>
>>5406372
Well would you look at that. Seems he had a much better name in the EU: Snipe.
>>
>>5406875
RTS perceptor has a nice updated alt mode but this back bits don't tab in well in robot mode
>>
>>5407261
I heard those tabs broke off easily, but I never got to find it out if it was true since I never got one.
>>
>>5407309
Okay.
>>
>>5407314
I just wanted an answer, jerk.
>>
>>5407309
If you mean the screws that attach the treads to the vehicle, on mine they have no grip, just fall right out, so I wouldn't say they're broke, just weak.
>>
>>5403671

Where do you eurofags buy your transformers from anyway ? Kapow is ok, but a bit pricy. BBTS's shipping is buttrapey, amazon.com occasionally has some semi interesting stuff...

Prices on ebay are totally retarded. Didnt it use to be the place to get shit cheap ?

Is it too tall? Several of the CW figs are supposed to fold the bottom up in foot mode revealing a second peg hole and shortening them around a CM.
