To think we were complaining last year that the only box set combiner being released by Hasbro was Devastator, but this year we have:

-Superion G2
-Menasor G2
-Bruticus G2
-Victorion

I'd rather wait for the BBTS preorder.

But I bought Scattershot. With Onslaught. Because people were scalping the shit out of Onslaught by himself.

And it's a good thing I did because I'm going to bet the Skylynx/Onslaught set is going to have the brown chest and not the silver.

If there aren't unreleased versions of G2 Hellbat and Guyhawk, then at least it'd be fun to complete the team after all these years with a couple of "what if" figures.

Doesn't matter. Still trumps those unknowns.
>>
>>5414344
Why? Don't you like making all your favorite poses on the Combiner Wars figures? I like bending Scrapper's elbows so I can show him punching Defensor's motorcycle leg while Long Haul crosses his arms in the distance
>>
>>5414346
There were not. It'd be fun to get new G2 made, like Powerglide.
>>
>>5414355
I still can't believe the scene that kept being posted here showed up on the Constructicon art that came with United Devastator. It was one hell of a coincidence.
>>
I am so confused here
They waste the time to make them all red and more like there cartoon appearance yet thought it be great to make it still look like the original toy's combiner form?
I wagered it look Like a Vok or something.
>>
>>5414369
That has much better color balance than the figures that make it up. I might actually grab a box set.
>>
>>5414369
I'm a bit pissed that Ravage and Tarantulus feet/hands are different colors from the set
>>
>>5414369
To be fair, the only ones of value in this set are Tarantulus and Ravage, who are going to be scalped to hell and back sadly.
>>
>>5414431

Honestly, if I could get Tarantulas and Ravage, along with one more Decepticon "extra" combiner limb that isn't those red shitters and not an existing G1 team member, I'd use them for Cyclonus of those 3+Offroad.
>>
>>5414355

If only you were a tenth as funny or clever as you seem to have deluded yourself into believing.
>>
>>5414431
>>5414474

Id have been more interested in Ravage had they not used the weakest mold in the Stunticon lineup. Shame they didn't use the Wheeljack overhaul of the mold
>>
>>5414519
Wheeljack overhaul was likely not available at the time but I agree it's rather head scratching they didn't use the Dead End mold or went balls crazy and got Groove's mold for it.

Are you fucking stupid? We have 2 other molds that would work perfectly, but you go for the One that looks least like him in every way?

Holy hell, dude. It's so simple
Rhinox-rook
Dinobot-off road
Cheetor- dragstrip
Tigatron- dead end of breakdown
And while the motormaster mold would fit a bit better we all know the torso mode sucks so that can go to onslaught.

I get the Botcon headache of making a combiner cast to celebrate Beast Wars but not be something you have already treaded cast wise but the Club is just head scratching when you consider how many better options they had.
They could have just used all the Combaticons to up date this guy
>>
>>5414566
Because funpub.

No seriously. And even if there wasn't a deluxe bike out there they still used the bulkiest of the deluxes and rook didn't even exist until wave 3. Even the copter mold would've worked better.
>>
>>5414565
Quick Strike could have used the Swindle mold with maybe a retooled weapon that look like his snake tail/head
could have had Blackarachnia be the Vortex mold and that could have been repainted into Airachnia as a con booth exclusive

Seriously how is less than an hour of brainstorming leading to a better product?

Because Tarantulas is a big fucking spider. I still don't get where the obsession with him absolutely HAVING TO BE A BIKE comes from. That's like wanting the Blob to be a skinny little guy or Juggernaut being a 98 pound wimp. Tarantulus is SUPPOSED TO BE FUCKING HUGE.
>>
>>5414587

Most of the leg hollow comes from transformation. Not many of the arms are hollow on the figures, if any.

Two reasons.
His pre-earth form was a bike (cybertron ransack) and his TM version has a bike mode.

What's extra funny is that funpub is who pretty much started the bike stuff.

It's not. You're just full of yourself. There's plenty of bad ideas to go around. FunPub doesn't have a monopoly on them.
I'd really rather they not do bad ideas, but it's really limiting to make sure it's perfect. Tripredacus is kinda risky. Personally I think the only thing I would have liked would have been a RID set with Fire Convoy and some flipchangers and spychangers. and car brothers would have ruined it.

>>5414561
>no one thinks Rhinox should be the torso because he's larger than Primal, and because they think the leader should always be the torso
>>
>>5414323

because this is a Betatron Scattorshot, it was meant for Hasbro to be a dick to the fans on this one while they end up delivering Computron later.

Anon said better not good or perfect.
Tripredacus is risky because they made their color scheme very bland with that Red color model
If they went with their actual colors you have a much better set
>>5414945
A long time from now likely. Engineering and popularity for sales could be a big factor. For scale they need to be Seeker sized and twice the cost for the extra moving parts it would take to make each mode match up.
>>5414966
That mold is like a bad penny.
>>
>>5414981
Surely an astrotrain to counter the 3p's could work?

And what's wrong with the hotrod mold or is it wreck-gar you were mentioning?

I'm curious because I know people have mentioned things about hotrod, I know its old but what are the cons?
>>
>>5414988
The arm articulation is super limited. No bicep swivels and the shoulders can barely move outward at all.
>>
>>5414988
Counter as in quality ? Sure but we walk into costs to make and then levels to sell. It's the Headache of the MP line, they have either have to be major popular characters, easy to manufacturer or both. The Triple guys would be their greatest challenge for the line if they wanted to keep them show accurate and balance cost. And yes there are fans of those guys the levels they need on sales for that would have to be rather great to justify the costs.

>what's wrong with the hotrod mold
poor possibility chest get's in the way of arms legs are restricted due to how the thighs work tiny head and hands
I mean he was the first of the not named at the time Generations line so I get there are going to be issue but it hasn't aged well at the slightest

Of course no no one wants rhinox as the torso.

And if you're going to get nitpicky about size then at least get it right. Dinobot was the biggest.

>>5415010
An Optimal Optimus torso would be interesting. At the very least he should be the combiner head

How much is this going to cost? I need a face-plated Junkion in my life.
>>5414988
I'd wager Astrotrain would be the first. My faith in the post-Hasui official MP is dwindling though. Kobayashi just doesn't have the spacial intuition that is necessary to create a toy fitting the MP-10 aesthetic.

Btw, most people don't seem to know that the wheel parts can actually lock into place in robot mode. In most pics I've seen they just leave them hanging around.

The whole point of CW is that any of the Deluxes can be used as an arm or a leg on any of the Voyager body bots. So yeah, feel free to mix and match.

Personally, I got my Rook in Groove's old place (right leg) rather than using him as an arm. Maybe if we get that Deluxe Groove in the US I'll pick him up too.

I don't care. I just need a Hot Rod that isn't the CW Legends version. Not that he's a bad toy, he isn't, but he's not a very good Hot Rod since without 3P addons he doesn't even have his back spoiler, nor does he have his arm pipes.

I'll be honest: I think more people would have complained if they werent red. i mean, that's how they're remembered, right?

In any case, i think doing toys of the cartoon Tripredacus guys is dumb. I mean it's like who gives a shit about that
>>
I don't see what the big deal is about Tarantulas not being a motorcycle. The APC mode does a good job of referencing the spider-mode; a 6 wheeled vehicle as an 8 legged arachnid is pretty clever. Groove wouldn't be a bad choice, but it doesn't look particularly like Tarantulas. The Rook mold at least features things like wheels between the chest and arms like the Transmetal. The colors might've been an iffy call, though, since it makes everyone think Transmetal tarantulas, and thus motorcycle.

I also don't get people trying to make the Transmetal 3rd mode seem more motorcycle-like than it is. Nothing changes to look more like a motorcycle in shape, it's still just a spider laying flat with wheels underneath it. No seat, no windshield,no lights. I guess maybe the legs are a kickstand. But otherwise, it might as well be any other two wheeled vehicle. A Scooter. A two-wheeled car. Maybe not a vespa, that wouldn't work well with him being "Tarantulas"

>I also don't get people trying to make the Transmetal 3rd mode seem more motorcycle-like than it is

Funpub took the motorcycle idea and have him 2 motorcycle alt modes and now all of a sudden they make him an apc. They're not being consistent at all.
>>
>>5415463
>the light was red
This is rapidly turning into a /vp/ tier buzz term.
>>
>>5415467
Yeah, but who cares about consistency over getting cool toys? This looks way more like Tarantulas than the other Funpub one at any rate, by virtue of having a new head alone.The DOFP one didn't get a toy so who cares.

Wouldn't it be fun if they repainted spidertits into Tarantulas?

If you like the Bruticus mold, I'd say go for Defensor, especially since the torso mode has a pretty intricate way of transforming.

If you like the Menasor mold, I'd say go for white Optimus.

I transformers my Menasor molds differently to make it less like they're walking on stilts.

I understand they they're trying to make him look as close as possible to the original G1 toys, but I kinda wish BoneCrusher had some more black or purple to his treads to make it looks symmetrical and unified to Scavenger when they're arms.

The way this latest batch of designers have been performing, I really don't want to see Classics figures updated now because it will be a waste.

You don't need to be a geewunner {which I'm not. I grew up with G1 but I'm not intolerant to everything else.

Stuff that's not actually an update of the character you like, or is a high end collectible with too many flaws. Have some empathy with people who don't share your opinion.

Giving Beast Wars characters "pre beast wars" vehicle modes has always seemed stupid to me. Most of them are named after animals and the Predacon faction itself takes it's name from a Decepticon team comprised of robotic animals. It'd make more sense if they were just robotic beasts on Cybertron to start with. It's not as if a large chunk of G1 wasn't robotic animal alt modes rather than vehicles, even if it was predominantly the Decepticons.

And yeah, I know Kenner originally intended Primal and Megs to be their original counterparts, but that got nixed in favor of the Mainframe canon and it's not like either of them had an animal right in their name anyway.

I'd be curious as to hybrid toy/show colors where it's mostly dark colors. Maybe they couldn't really do that, what with having to mix like green and red for one of them, but the other two were kind of brown-ish, which would work well blending with red. Maybe if they just did the red for robot mode.

I really liked the digibash someone did of Cyclonus as Cicadacon, but then you're left trying to make Seaclamp out of one of the limbs... what, a backwards jet just like Cicadacon?? The jet torso works well as Seaclamp as well, with his legs forming pincers.
It just looks like there's no way to win.

I'd imagine that also applies to the Terrorcons, the Technobots and the G1 Predacons
>>
>>5415796

Well, they got us a Liokaiser, something that never came to America at all in a series that to this day has no dub (and never will), and probably has no official subs either.

...But they also didn't get us a Predaking, who is easily one of the most wanted combiners for no reason other than looks, who was in the US cartoon.
>>
>>5415814
Those got to show up in the tv show, the Seacon only showed up in the Marvel Comics, and very briefly at that.
>>
>>5415796
>>5415816
They said they want the line to be strictly vehicles, sans Sky Lynx. That's why Predaking, Piranhacon, Monstructor and Abomunis never came, and that's why the Beast Wars homages are vehicles.
>>
>>5415816
They're probably figuring out if they should release them as a Titan figure (like Devastator) or figure out how they'll reuse the beast combiner molds since those require retooling (not just heads) between figures.

>>5415820

Given most of the beasts were just square bricks with legs, they could probably have a field day with mold reuse on them too.

Which I don't get. It's not like we needed more cars, jets,and motorcycles, we've gotten almost too much of that in the last 5 years. It's been pretty much nothing but those 3 for a while, on top of a bunch of remolds and repaints last year.

I'm gonna say around the time of TF Prime is when our variety became far more homogenized, with ROTF being the height of variety. In the UT era you'd get some interesting variety in addition to the cars and jets, like aquatic vehicles, spaceships, beasts, etc. ROTF stepped it up with all sorts of appliances, classic vehicles, and more. Then TF Prime just kept the maincharacters as mostly cars, jets, or motorcycles, and the last two movies mostly followed suit. I want some crazy choices again.

See I'd like to at least have a chance to be disappointed with a character I like or a high end collectible with too many flaws. They have several of them and still bitch.

At least they're keeping it consistent with the rest of Repaint Wars so that's alright.

>shame comic book writers hate toys
Actually no, the writers of both books and their artists are all toyfags with varying collections. The artist of mtmte even goes out of his way to try and design characters so they are feasible as toys. He's the same dude that drew that Decepticon medic (name escapes me atm) similar to the Generations Trailcutter toy in hopes he might get a fig that way.
They're all a bunch of toy losers just like us.

Can we get a new Hot Rod mold please?

The Springer repaint was alright, but we need a proper main line one.
>>
>>5415871
I'm beginning to think it's an inside Hasbro joke.

>>5415871
I won't lie. It actually looks pretty cool and it's close to his bot mode.

>>5415840
And the crocodile.
>>
>>5414966
You say it's a shit mold, but is it any worse than the CW deluxes out right now?
>>
>>5414966
Kinda want this to army build.

Then again, this will be the fourth time I bought that Hot Rod mold and it definitely hasn't aged well. And ideally I'd get a spare head for Wreck-Gar since that is not the head of a generic Junkion.

Maybe when it comes out someone on /toy/ will be willing to go 1/3 2/3s with me.
>>
>>5415878
Yes. They're writers and inkers/pencilers and colorists. Not toy-makers or engineers.
>>
>>5415885
Yeah. It is. You probably didn't own the mold.
>>
>>5414531

I could even see the PROWL retool being fitting as a "Secret Police" thing
>>
>>5414531

Even the Dragsstrip / Mirage is a better figure. Granted it probably wouldnt be appropriate for him character-wise

Notice that in the promo pic, Ravsge has a RED Predacon symbol
>>
>>5415885
Yes. I kinda like Roddy but at least CW Deluxes have the basic articulation a modern TF should have.
>>
>>5415862
No. Never.

>>5415851
Let's not fight amongst ourselves over table scraps. What's popular is what will get more product, and there's not much we can do about that.
and I wouldn't really be jealous of inferior stuff. Well, I guess everyone's got their own priorities, but something with too many flaws is just as bad as nothing at all.

>>5415874
More like we get a 2nd, still flawed Masterpiece figure instead of a Classics one.
>>
>>5415883
Not to mention the new cassettrons (bird, jaguar, possibly a bat, rhino, and lion in the future) and the high chance of us getting a Titan Wars Mindwipe (bat) and Weirdwolf.
>>
>>5414597

What's that got to do with anything?

What does that even MEAN?
>>
>>5414601

Thinking outside the box isn't your strong suit, is it?
>>
>>5414742

They should re-release the RiD Megatron / Galvatron mold with a TM2 Megatron style head on it.

This was a scrapped dea for a con exclusive

No they wouldn't . They're the most logical choice.

Then they screwed up royal by never putting G1 Megatron's spark back.

So Megatron should actually have been a lifeless corpse in MTMtE

He chose the form himself out of pure willpower

God. Him and TFA Megatron were perfection.

>>5415079

I popped the leg kibble and just had him be a jet with Wasp overtone in design

Of course if it's something he really wanted to do, then to the only person it should really matter to, it isn't a waste
>>
>>5415950
Looks like First Aid got a nice gig.
>>
>>5415965
They did out the sparks in Optimus and Megatron, it just wasn't shown on screen. The DVD release shows the partially animated scene.
>>
>>5415141

At least he got two Megatron toys off the shelves
>>
>>5415253
>Cheetor and primal don't have a third mode.

Well, actually he does. a flight mode. It's not a VEHICLE mode, granted, but it IS a third mode as illustrated in the instructions
>>
>>5415047
BW really hit it's apex when the designers were able to go batshit with dragons and winged wolves and stuff. What came out was some of the most original robots in all of TFdom from a design perspective. And then BM happened.

Well it was at least one half of a good toyline, and it did give us the transformer toy with the least worth ever with Supreme Cheetor.
>>
>>5415212

Im thinking of doing that. Like I did with white Optimus and Rook
>>
>>5416010
There is a Supreme Cheetor at a local comic book store for $20, he's been there since he came out and he will continue to be there until I can convince the owner to just give him to me.
>>
>>5415315

Cyclonus needs Jets. Ground vehicles wouldn't be that fast, nor could they travel over water or a wide ravine if need be

Air Raid with the Starscream head retool would be ideal as an air Decepticlone
>>
>>5416010
>winged wolf
It bothered me so much as a kid that his wings couldn't go on his back in bot mode.
>>
>>5416016
I'm convinced to this day he's the worst transformer ever made, he is a perfect storm of bad attributes. It's like the anti-Botcon Alpha Trion

Yeah but I want an inappropriately homaged Combiner Wars Car Brothers like I want Combiner Wars 1984 Autobot cars: not at all, other than as some fanwanky fulfillment of Masquerade, which they fucking failed at. {not geewunner, just like that concept of an Autobot team disguised as Stunticons}

I think it would be an even worse fit. The 1984 Autobot cars are kind of generic, but the RID Car Brothers have really crazy designs. Bad enough when you think of how to do someone so distinctive like X-Brawn with a more Classics-like mold, and you're stuck with the shitty Classics Ratchet/Ironhide mold with that weapon on one arm, or the more recent Trailbreaker mold with the truck bed cover on one arm. Look at CW and it's similar shit of... ... Ok, sticking the combiner war fist on one arm would work, especially with the new Trailbreaker remold. Fuck, I'm shooting down my own argument.
Still, Prowl without shoulderpads now gone. Both Prowl and Side Burn had pretty dainty legs but not any more.

Also why did you put the square bumper of Wheeljack on Side Burn when he's got a round front? and Prowl not being the Sunstreaker/Breakdown mold must be a brainfart, right?

Fire Convoy would look great. The Car Brothers wouldn't.

The first birthday I had where I got a good chunk of money (I was possibly 12 and it was $200) my dad took me to toys r us and 3 of the things I bought were talking homer and Bart Simpson dolls (that could talk to each other!) and supreme Cheetor because Cheetor was made to appeal to my age.

I liked him at first. He was so ugly that it was cool to me. His cheetah mode was my favorite and I loved the extending claws and sword. Especially the weird chomping bot teeth. The only thing I disliked was his inability to stand in bot mode.

Now I know that i would have avoided it if I had the same taste I do now.

All this new stuff just keeps getting leaked/revealed. I mean, in the span of what, a week? We've seen a new Liokaiser of all things, Leader Soundwave, a Computron set, a G2 Superion set already up for preorder, a possible Blurr headmaster, a new Deluxe looking Groove artwork being shown on Hasbro's own site possibly by accident, and now a re-release of the last decent Hot Rod (with Junkions) with the actual NAME Hot Rod rather than a moniker and a special 30th anniversary movie logo on it hopefully suggesting we're going to see more stuff with that logo.

Theres been a lot of new stuff popping up. At the rate they're going I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a fucking Kiss Players revival.
>>
>>5416232
That would be worth it for all the OUTRAGE alone. And they don't even have to do a real revival, just hint at it and the 'tism will go off the rails.

The sad thing is, Kiss Player's had a really solid storyline, with some of the more interesting interplay between the transformers, government, and humans. Aside from the stupid kiss thing I'd have loved seeing an actual show done.

Don't deny it.

Teeny tiny.

Are you looking to scare home invaders away or something, or just nostalgic? You can go through http://www.tfu.info/toytables/g1_megatron.htm to see if anything suits your taste. There's a few incredible third party figures like Apollyon or Hegemon, but if you want cheap, those ain't.
