Is this thing going to be available stateside? I guess I wouldn't mind importing it if the price is right. Really wish they packaged almost any other figure than Hot Rod, though. Wasn't like, fucking everyone on the Junk planet when the Junkions were introduced? Kup, Arcee, Springer... hell, it'd be awesome if they redid the packaging a bit and put Ultra Magnus in there.

It wasn't to be, though.

I had a dream last night that Hastak Devastator in combined mode had a transformation and you could transform him into literally just a giant rectangle. Just a big rectangle. It was a really nice, seamless rectangle with neat purple patterns, but still.

In the dream I was extremely sad because (in real life) I'd already put in orders for a 3P Devy and I remember thinking "No 3P Devastator can turn into a rectangle..."

Anyway, I thought that Devastator could turn into a rectangle for a while after waking up, and was kind of bummed the whole time, but then I looked at some pictures and reality came back into effect.

Does anyone else own either Masterpiece Tracks or Masterpiece Road Rage? I'm not sure how the neck is supposed to work. The hinge it's on is nice and tight and is able to hold the head up at the right position just fine, but beneath it there's just... nothing. Nothing to brace it, nothing to snap into. Which means that when I'm posing her head I have to pull up slightly, otherwise she'll do her best imitation of a turtle and sink her head below her shoulders.

Was it really designed this way? I keep wondering if I'm missing something.

>>
>>5416715
I like that mold. It's arm ball joints are sometimes wonky, but it's a fun toy.

I have the flat cartoon-colored one, so I'm definitely getting that boxed set. I doubt it'll be $100, and that's what that set would run you with eBay prices.
>>
>>5416737
While I agree that it's a decent figure and certainly not the worst, I do believe that Hot Rod kind of does deserve an updated figure. I don't mind if it's deluxe or voyager, but he should get a better one.
>>
>>5416672
My Tracks' head has a click when I lift it up. And while there's some play in it between the click and its maximum elevation, it won't go down past the click without applying a little force. In your pic you certainly seem to be raising it high enough to lock, so I would assume its a QC problem.
>>
>>5416753
Yeah that mold is quickly approaching the 10 year mark, how haven't we gotten a better Hotrod or even a Rodimus proper yet?

You have to choose between spending your money on cancer research or buying plastic trinkets to fulfill your personal fantasy.

>>5417243
Depends which line, the robots in disguise line (as in what's in shops now) are easiest and cheapest to get BUT the japanese versions are superior in terms of paint deco (transformers adventure) as well as some variations that you may not get elsewhere in that line.

Combiner wars maybe harder to find especially for older figures depending on the size class, better off getting the Unite Warriors sets but since only superion and menasor are the only standard releases expect to pay more overall.

As for mp's how extensive are you going to collect, alot of the older ones may be pricey second hand, bootlegs are an option if you have the tolerance.

But right now you should be fine with the fan favs getting re-releases like optimus prime, ultra magnus and wheeljack, if you want mp's pick the guys you like, getting them all will cost you.

Now the best place to get mp's is straight from the source, Japan, if you want something that's been and gone try mandarake for second hand ones, combiner wars and robots in disguise are in local shops though availability may vary.
>>
>>5417252

I want to get mainly the decepticons like star scream and soundwave but they are pretty expensive online. In Australia they are all over $300+
>>
>>5417259
>In Australia
Aye m8 guess we're in the same boat.

Getting the proper soundwave is gonna be a bitch, I caved and got the year of the goat for $129, and myers had him on sale for $99 around christmas time which was a bitch, all I can suggest is mandarake for him but its mostly sound blaster's with ratbat (exclusive to this black repaint), shame the hasbro mp soundwave is the most expensive one (but it did come all the cassettes, much like the YOTG one).

Starscream was a bit easier for me, got the recent hasbro one for about $140 from toys r us but we had very limited numbers, better off ringing around, though the mold has some issues and the fittings on mine are fucked.

If you want the takara (japanese one) there is one on ebay for $250 (first result), no flight stand like the hasbro BUT you get a spiffy crown and cape, and this guy selling the asia reissue so it comes with a collector coin if you're into that sorta thing.

Do avoid mp megatron, aside from being kinda shitty looking he's technically illegal as he counts as a replica firearm, I just got lucky with mine, some states allow him but you need a gun license and gun locker.

I find going on ebay for the hasbro ones to be a safe bet cost wise though they may not hold a candle to the more pricy takara ones.

Also mp shockwave is still up for pre-order, try hlj, amiami or premiumcollectables.com.au for him and others where available.
>>
>>5417243
>Is it worth getting into this hobby
Just for the MPs. Retail is shit right now, except for the cheap little legends figures which are at least justified in their compromises. Although they're not even that cheap anymore.
>Were do i start? Are the figures easy to find to buy?
Well, if you like Masterpiece, start there. Unfortunately, they're not easy to find/buy. You need to import them from a Japanese dealer site like HLJ, AmiAmi or Anime Export. And most older figures are completely sold out. You could try a local importer like BBTS or TFsource, but their prices are insane. Your other option is ebay, which opens you up to second hand, or buying the KOs, and quality varies greatly on those, but they are readily available and comparatively cheap, so there's that.

To be honest, I never understand people who ask if they should get into a certain hobby. Is it worth it? I think that's up to you, isn't it? You'd think if you cared enough to start collecting something, you'd put in the time to research and look at the product and decide whether or not you want to spend your money on it for yourself. You shouldn't have to be talked into a hobby. In fact, you should be so into it that nobody can talk you out of it. I feel like there's this weird imperative nowadays to be "into" something just so you can carve a notch on your belt.

>>5417305
>as if nothing is worth buying right now other than that?
As a collector, no, I don't feel there is anything else worth buying, besides MP and the legends class figures like I mentioned. Everything deluxe-leader class is just riddled with lowered QC and compromises. I don't feel the need to buy toys just to fill out some '80s cartoon cast checklist. I want toys that are impressive to look at and smartly engineered, and right now, most retail releases aren't that. And I'm not bitching about it, I'm just not buying. Vote with your wallet, as they say.

I do buy the legends class toys because they are actually better engineered than most deluxe figures, since we're wading through repaint wars. The little figures give me something quick to transform and fun to fiddle with, while MPs give me a complex, detailed figure. Everything else just sort of occupies this space in between that I don't feel the need for.

>are you hearing yourself?
You're the one who is sperging out that people aren't buying the same stuff that you're buying. Chill.

>>5417319
yeah me too, I only buy the cool ones like Soundwave, Exhaust, and Star Saber

>>5417329
I buy because of the design, truth be told I kinda like prowl and sideswipe for their alt modes, got me star saber exhaust as well.

Really, its just opinion, nothing wrong with those buying shitty designs if they grew up with the character, hence how I can tolerate owning all of the current mp11 hasbro repaints, same for those buying what's cool looking.

Its because of this people actually like the UW/CW devastator at all.

I bought the UW cause I think the Contructicons are cool

Really the CW would of been enough seeing how its just devastator I want, but its the complete package and it does has the better g1 paint job without any touchup work

>judging the value of a toy based on its prominence in a 30-year-old cartoon
Kek. Then you'd be overlooking the fact that the Datsun mold is easily the best of the MP cars. I really don't give a shit about whatever Smokescreen did in the show, but holy fuck his paint job and alt. mode are gorgeous.

Hey Let’s take Jesus off the dashboard.
Got enough on his mind. I do agree with your opinion. Just buy what you like.
There's no true objective side to buying a toy. Everything is always subjective. Every design will always appeal to someone. The fact that someone thought, approved, and produced a toy is a proof of this.

>I hope he's at least a big figure.

On the other hand, I expect it to a bit taller than a Voyager. Like an inch and a half less than the Ultra class Primal.

That doesn't always work out. Look at generations rattrap.
>>
>>5417553
My bet is unlikely. They'll never release any villains. Because even if you buy 10 Primals, they'll probably just do another maximal next.

Remember, Megatron wasn't the cool and calculating character we know him as in Beast Wars. In the Japanese dub, he was a shrieking coward.
>>
>>5417570
We're talking about Masterpieces here. Most MP cars are good.


And Generations Rattrapp isn't that bad, I own the Takara one and is an OK figure for the price point, had zero problems with it.

It has no playability in bot mode because of the overengineering for his size.

Toy Fair is right around the corner. We could get another MP BW figure announcement, and if they're going to do just two, Megatron is the next logical choice.

...Or they could mimic the Optimus/Bumblebee popularity thing and make Cheetor instead. But we've never really had a decent figure of him so I'd take that too.
>>
>>5417695
It's not going to sell for hundreds. Around $100 at the highest if it's complete with everything. More realistically you'll get buyers if you sell at the 50-75 range.

The original Cheetor figure was good. Just a bad cheetah.

Man, I just realized what butthurt would happen if we got MP Beast Megatron before MP G1 Megatron v2. Not that I care, I think G1 Megs looks pretty bland, while BW Megs has a nostalgic place in my heart.

I think the rumor was that MP Primal, Cheetor, and Rattrap are the ones we'll definitely see. Rattrap seems like an odd choice when Dinobot's around,and his last update is still pretty good.
>>
>>5417685
>Do you think that they're going to paint the whole thing like shitty 90's CGI texturing?

I actually hope so, but painting the CGI fur over the whole figure seems to be asking too much, even for Takara.

Masterpieces are a hard place to start. They're extremely expensive, especially since a ton of them are scalped to fuckall and back. You can even buy 3P shit cheaper than a lot of MP's because of how bad the scalping is, and most 3P's are overpriced as fuck.

The original is still a great toy, this is just better. Expanding out of just collecting transformers has made me more picky, and also less complacent. This character had an updated figure only 4 years after the original version in the line. The original is still a better toy than most. But the newer version just feels more like a collector's figure.
>>
>>5417926
Alterations include the shoulders, feet, head, backpack, and chest plate. I also heard they fixed the hips, so that's at least a 40% difference.
>>
>>5417876
All they've done is change the wings and the tip of the shuttle so it looks more like a hawk in beast mode, maybe it has a robot mode and they scrapped shuttle but i doubt it. Torso colors emulate leozak/jarugar beast is deathsaurus

Yeah, no one else accomplished that shit in the 80's. You didn't see Cobra Commander nuking Duke and popping Snake Eyes in the chest, or Mumma-Ra buttfucking the cast of Thundercats to death.

BW Megatron barely managed to kill Dinobot, and couldn't even kill the rest of them when he had a whole planet at his disposal.
>>
>>5417926
Yeah. But the way Onslaught is designed means the backpack is far less invasive.
>>
>>5417926

Onslaught has the hip issue fixed and doesn't have the ladder-through-the-crotch thing Hotspot has for bodymode, meaning Onslaught is a more stable body.

However, Onslaugt isn't as stable in bot mode, he's a little tipping prone even with the heel spurs they added, especially since Hotspot's ladder basically doubles as a figure stand for him, letting him pull off more poses and not be as tippy as Onslaught.
>>

Beast Wars Megatron was willing to destroy the spacetime continuum.

Yes, but we haven't seen any of that, all we have to goo for is the box art.

You must not remember the rule with cartoons. Robots can die violent deaths. Humans can't.

Also it's pretty nifty that you left out how BW megatron took over all of cybertron and made a race of evil henchmen with some of their generals being controlled by stolen maximal sparks.

Its cool though.

Primal is just a weird character to make a Transformer of. He's already a humanoid in his alt mode, so the transformation can only do so much. I think the Cybertron Primal had the most creative transformation by switching the legs and arms, but that's about it. He can't fold up into a box shape like a lot of other Transformers.

So yeah, the original 96 figure is still pretty solid, but I wouldn't mind plopping down MP money for one with more articulation and better paint aps. You kind of have to start with Primal, the hope is they'll do more than just him in the MP line.

I really want Blackarachnia, but I'm not holding my breath.

If the list of BW characters that need an MP are being decided based on how non-show-accurate their toys were, Terrorsaur is at the top of that list. His bot mode was sexy as fuck in the show, and had nothing to do with the toy. A decent MP figure of him would rock.

The problem is if you made that same list but listed it order of fan popularity, he'd probably be near the bottom.
>>
>>5418557
Who else had really inaccurate toys? (the irony of saying that considering the toys were the basis for the characters.)

>>5418557
His MP would require a lot of crazy engineering. Especially the wings. I didn't have a problem with his toy. I love good wingspans on figures.

I think it's a toss up between him and Dinobot. His toy sacrificed the look of the beast mode for the bot mode. Lets see how they could handle that.
>>
>>5418570

Dinobot. One of the most beloved characters that seriously needs a MP redesign. The Generations figure isn't good enough.

In all honesty, why not just MP the original 10?

in the beginning there were Four Maximals

Optimus Primal
Rhinox
Cheetor
Rattrap

Six Predacons
Megatron
Scorpinoc
Tarantuals
Waspinator
Terrorsaur
Dinobot, who later becomes a Maximal

With the number of Masterpieces out now I could see an eventual release of all original 10, with tools of Cheetor, Tarantuals, and Terrorsaur to make Tigertron, Black Arachnia, and Airazor respectively.

Only odd men out would season 2 and on, Transmetals, Fuzors, and maybe infernosince he was a shelfwarmer back in the day and kinda the old figure out as far as new creation and non retool.

Blackarachnia needs to have her own mold. Both her robot and beast modes are like half the mass of Tarantulas, and I'm not talking about scale.

>Also her tits sit way too low on her chest

Did you slide her tits all the way up Anon? Lots of people miss you can slide her chest up, to the point like every reviewer of her missed the chest slide and many people didn't realize it was there for over a week.

Though to be honest, the boob section sags down due to some disassembly.
>>
>>5419305
They seem like they're pushed up all the way. They're resting flush against her spider eyes and the joints holding them are just balljoints. It leaves an unsightly gap below her neck and if you line her neck up with her spin (ie, keep her head up), her tits are at a weird angle.

>>5419322
I'm not sure how this picture was taken, though. That looks way better.
>>
>>5419326
Holy shit, disregard this. There's a joint hiding in her assembly that I didn't know about. Thank you anon!

I still want an MP Blackarachnia, though.
>>
>>5419326
I opened chest torso and flipped the pieces around, not nearly as much resistance for sliding the chest up.

>>5419327
What joint?
>>
>>5419330
It's some sliding joint that includes her spider eyes. I literally just pushed with my thumbs and it clicked up into the right position, which greatly reduced the chest gap and made her tits rest in more or less the right place.
>>
>>5419062

I really want an MP Arcee. I think having her, Hot Rod and Magnus makes a good sample of the '86 cast.

It was really easy to spot people that didn't own Animated Black Arachnia.
>>
>>5419370
I do own Animated BA but it's either been to long since I transformed her (like, what 7 years? Cut me some slack) or I never knew how to properly transform her. Either way she's in storage at the moment.

nice idea painting the lower chest plate black, I think I'll do that

If I painted the back of her titties gold, would that eliminate some of the transulcent-ness? I dont wanna mess up the spider web design on the front
>>
>>5419370
Her chest doesn't slide up anymore without serious brute force as it comes assembled.

You're forcing parts past their resistance points and scraping the hell out of the inner joint sections by forcing it up.

The original BA toy came assembled differently which is why it never had the issue to begin with.

I've done the "fix" on mine, works great now
>>
What are some cool KOs of transforming toys out there? Doesn't even have to be transformers franchise. I was looking at that dino combiner though I heard even the official one has issues.
>>
>>5419406
Doesn't seem like mine resists that much.
>>
>>5419483
Mine did, but i had a spare junker animated BA, so i just swaped the inner torso bits, now the chest slides easily and as a plus she got the metalic waist spider legs.
>>
>>5419358
Talk about a pushup bra.

So UW Blast Off is going to be a new mold.

Welcome to 2 weeks ago.

>>5419628
>doesn't understand what anon meant that everybody that were here 2 weeks ago knew this cause even the OP pic of one of the threads in the past was that silhouette of the UW Bruticus

You're dense and we forgive you.
>>
>>5419613
I'll wait till we have real confirmation.
>>
>>5419628
It was news 18 years ago. The picture there has been posted here numerous times. Come back when you have a picture of the actual toy and not some silhouette where you can barely see anything.
>>
>>5419613
Hey at least we know it'll be revealed later this month

>>5419638
ok fence sitting fag
>>
>>5419682
I'll be buying it if it's not an exclusive. I'm happy to pay UW Superion prices for it, but not rape prices like with UW Defensor.
>>
>>5419682
Thank you Takara. Blast off looks great. I do wish they'd done a bit more new tooling on Vortex, the rotor looks really weird sitting that low on his back.

>>5419686
No UW Bruticus for you then.
There's zero chance of Bruticus being a retail release when Defensor was an exclusive because it included a new mold.
>>
>>5419694
I have CW Bruticus. I'll just get Blast Off when Hasbro inevitably bring him over with UW Groove, who we already know is coming.
>>
>>5419682
Haha wow. Someone is very butthurt again over someone not wanting to get their hopes up. Maybe you'll mature one day, kid :^)
>>
>>5419682
It'll be great when fags know what a decent picture is. We can see that blast off is different but nothing else. Those proportions and this shit quality are not doing it any favors.

Still can't tell if they fixed Brawl.
>>
>>5419682
How many people will complain that the shuttle isn't backwards?
>>
>>5419694
Well shut me up.
Looks like Bruticus might be retail after all. 15k yen is retail price, exclusives were 16.2k yen.

Also, June release date, can't wait.
>>
>>5419694
>Blast off looks great

It's a gimmickformer. When do they ever look like what they're supposed to look like? It's why the AOE line failed. We always had Fast Action Battlers and other kid-oriented toys, but AOE was the first time they took away the pocket-money pricepoints so they could be replaced by gimmickbots. Worst thing Hasbro ever did. Even they recognised it since they brought Legions back in RiD.
>>
>>5419720
Fair enough. I can't speak to his finer details , yes, I will say that I like I like his robot proportions and the shape of the shuttle mode.
>>
>>5419613
Also just in: sky still blue, water still wet.
>>
Yay its a shuttle, too bad it looks like shit in arm mode too much spacing from the shoulder of bruticus that open gap just kills it.

That's a secret. Buy the golden ticket and find out.
>>
>>5419789
They literally expect people to pay $325 for a Legends figure when we don't even know what the figure is or looks like? Are these people for realzies?
>>
>>5419795
They're going all out since they're losing the license next year.
>>
>>5419798
No wonder they're losing it with shit like that.
>>
>>5419710
As predicted, blastoff looks great as a shuttle but obviously can't see robot mode well so we'll have to wait on that while apart from vortex's rotors the rest are the same parts wise.

Oh, and retail, fucking nice, guess he'll be a birthday present

It's an Iguana.

Did Swindle get retooled too?

>>5419900
Doesn't look like it. Hopefully they tweaked Brawl and removed the suck.
>>
>>5419885
I waited for the Takara version, and even I can tell that Blast-Off's bot mode looks a little janky in that blurry picture.

Was expectingthem to do something better with the arms, something like how classics Astrotrain or Tankor arms become the noses of their altmdes, like this it looks like another aerialbot, like my custom..
>>
The next tf general should use the blast off picture
>>
Should we really judge the quality of Blast Off based on a low-res (and black and white) pic of the UW Combaticons?

We can do that once we get something more presentable.
>>
>>5420010

Yes. We should. He's a spaceship. This is exactly what you faggots wanted. Surely there won't be any more crying about how ugly the new mold is
Oh wait i forgot it's transformers fans
>>
>>5417575

I'll always consider him the Stringer Bell of Beast Wars. Cunning to a point but ultimately dumbified by reckless ambition and shitty crew.

I prefer religious zealot TM2 Megs. Now he actually got shit done and had to be taken down by a weird super alien birdcat that controlled the weather.

Man I miss Beast Wars.
