Why a 2nd Onslaught?

I got my Bruticus complete, so now I guess I'm looking for Skylynx a bunch of the TW stuff which won't be out until ???, that Plat. Hot Rod set since I don't own one yet, and Liokaiser.

Just ordered the only 3 combaticons I wanted got galvatronus so now I'm just gonna wait for Wheeljack, hound, and skylynx for that combiner.

Outside of CW I'm excited for the new decepticon warrior class stuff. Especially Thunderhoof.

The hound-cycle is cool but unfortunately, they went cheap on the paint. You could see that the promotional prototype has extra paint apps all over.

There's one more minicon dog that's tied to a fire station playset. Don't really feel like buying that one yet because it has the same ass-squirter gimmick as the fairy dragon I posted previously.

>>
>>5430792
>>5430795
Its nostalgia that gives anyone interest, just a really big head that when clicked gives a tech spec read out.

Now the newer ones omit the tech spec, ok if they can focus the engineering on the body perhaps we may see decent transformations, because the heads are crap, hardly any articulation and hardly a transformation at all.

Only reason I'm considering making a purchase of the line is because powermaster prime/ginrai and galvatron have lowered my expectations on an mp of either
>>
>>5430799

Pretty much that. Despite the Masterpieces and Combiner Wars being really nice, I'm kind of sick of early G1 (especially seeing the same dozen or so G1 characters). It's nice to see stuff that hasn't been rehashed/redone to death.

I so hope they do a new Mindwipe and maybe legends class version of the Decepiticon/Autobot Clones to really get that me at 5 years old nostalgia.

Plan to get more MP stuff. As well as the following:

Fracture should still be on HTS.

Because then they can turn into those rectangle things that go into TW Blaster/Soundwave.

>>5430551
Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors: Sky Lynx. Grand Galvatron. Maybe Takara Bruticus, depending on colour pictures; maybe Victorion, depending on in-hand pictures.
Masterpiece: Possibly Exhaust, Blue Bluestreak, and G2 Sideswipe, depending on how much money I have after the combiners. Unite Warriors: Skullcruncher, Rewind, Crashbash.
Q-Transformers: Got most of what I want on preorder, so it depends what they have coming up.
3P: Spartan looks damn tempting. If I can get my hands on some other Wreckers first, I might get him for my Wreckers display.

I really want a voyager version (or even like kind of articulated 3 step big one) for underbite.
>>
>>5431182
He's tons of fun, it's cool to see the gimmicks they crammed into him. And he's pretty articulate. I have a Big Convoy and Shining Lio Convoy set up as the co leaders of a mix of BW BWII and BW neo characters.
>>
>>5431182
He is. Big convoys mammoth plastic is kind of weak now though. >>5431182
>>
>>5431182
Well, Let’s take Jesus off the dashboard.
Got enough on his mind. Sure he's a shellformer but he's a surprisingly fun toy. Of course in mammoth mode, articulation is practically non-existent, but I really love the robot mode. It's like Optimus became a member of Gwar.
>>
What are some Brave-esque TFs? I know Victory Saber, God Ginrai, and Galaxy Convoy are all kind of a given.

Though the combined mode just as a few issues. The figures by themselves are perfectly fine, but the connections for combining sometimes don't go in all the way. They stay together, but look like they won't if that makes any sense.

No, don't do it. The robot mode is awful with a sunken in neck and wonky arms, and the truck mode can barely roll cuz all the plane propellers face downward near the ground in that mode.

So true...
>>
Will Titan Wars Astrotrain be grey/purple like in the cartoon or white/purple like the classics toy?
>>
>>5431393
Both will likely get made eventually, but if I had to guess with the current team we'd get cartoon colors first.
>>
>>5431393
The sensible thing would be for Hasbro to give us white/purple and let Takara do the cartoon colours, which they'll do no matter what.
So, of course, we'll get grey/purple from both. And Takara's will have more paint, but it'll look ridiculous because they'll apply a G1 animation model paint scheme to a toy not designed for it, but Geewunners will buy it because muh paint.
>>
>>5431426
I hope we get white/purple from Hasbro. I love that deco. The grey bores me.
>>
>>5431393
They'll redeco/retool the Sentinel Prime toy at least 5 times but somehow never do Astrotrain.
>>
>>5431457
So Devcon and Scourge from Sentinel Prime?

>>5431476
And an Optimus. Because the head is very Optimus-like and you gotta have six Optimuses in every line.

I dunno I've always prefered the cartoon deco and it annoys me that everytime we get an Astrotrain by Hasbro, they go with the white?

all the versions of Astrotrain that are in the black and grey deco they always tend to be exclusives.

Whats disappointing about them? Galvatron, Blaster, and Soundwave look pretty damn good. It's only PM Prime that looks "meh", and PM Prime always looked "meh" to me. Original G1 design is still best after all this time. PM isn't that bad overall, it's certainly no abortion of taste like Bayformers designs, but honestly, if they never made another PM Prime it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

nb4 "Hollow forearms" when even hundred dollar+ 3P toys still have hollow forearms too.
>>
>>5431817
I literally have no issue with hollow arms for fold away hands. Its the fear of the wrist joint being weak that worries me. No matter what I do I can't get my CW mirage's wrist to be sturdy enough for anything.
>>
>>5431815
One place where I did love grey is RID Jhiaxus - who Generations Jhiaxus tried, but failed, to emulate - since they gave him two highly contrasting shades of grey that didn't blend with the orange.
But that wouldn't work for cartoon Astrotrain, so...
>>
>>5431817
>>5431829

Yeah, I've pretty much gotten over hollowness at this point. My main beef with these new figures however is the lack of wrist swivel. Bugs me to no end.
>>
>>5431840
Yeah. I hate that the swivels are gone. You miss out on a lot, you know?
>>
>>5431817
PM Prime looks really disappointing, but I'm at least giving it a chance until I see a gallery or review.

UM has looks pretty nice, but has an awful back thanks to a section of the cab being really hollow, plus he can't hold his weapons.

Seekers/Jetfire have a really lazy transformation. Having a whole chunk of the jet just having off the back is terrible, and the wings look really bad in robot mode.

Blaster looks ok, even if the torso looks weird from the side thanks to the cassette gimmick.

Soundwave has a weird face, terrible panel on the chest (should have gone with a new look instead of aping the old look with a chest like that), and Boombox mode looks awful, at least it kind of works with Blaster.

I thought Galvatron was a voyager? Anyway, his arms being hollow isn't an issue since they do something.

PM Prime has a chunk of the trailer hanging off his arm, and the arm is also hollow. If they had to make the arm hollow, they should have used the trailer panel to cover that up.

Hey /toy/, my birthday's approaching soon, and I can't decide what to buy myself. So I'm coming to you guys for some opinions. Got a few options brewing here.

I've narrowed it down to these, more or less. It's a mix of official and 3P stuff. I can probably afford one of these, maybe two if it's some of the cheaper options. Maybe.

MP Starsaber just because he looks fucking awesome. No attachement to the character otherwise.

MMC's Hexatron, because Sixshot is cool and theres no modern day Sixshot other than 3P stuff.

Takara Devastator. Because I don't have one. Would probably keep them in individual bot mode too, since even as a kid I usually kept Devy in his component bot modes rather than his Devy mode.

Maketoys Mobine Paladin/Chaos. Because I think he looks cool.

2 of the Fansproject Dinobots. Probably the Not-Sludge and Not-Slag.

Another option would just be a few of the IDW Collection hardcovers, because I'm just getting into the new comics, got 2 volumes of them right now and like'em so far.
>>
>>5431912

Oh shit, forgot 2 options. MMC's Commotus and Anarchus. Because the characters they're based off of look cool, Commotus is the fucking Metal Slug tank, and the idea of an electric chair 'bot sounds cool to me.
>>
>>5431548
But he'll look really offscale with Voyager Galvatron and Cyclonus then.
Hasbro's stupid enough to do it though.
>>
>>5431920
>buying voyager cyclonus
I can understand wanting a spaceboat scourge, but why wouldn't you just get RtS Cyclonus?
>>
>>5431923
Not him, but I got him for Grand Galvatron.
>>
>>5431928
Fair enough.
>>
Hopefully toy fair shows off cw computron and liokaiser
>>
>>5431966
Computron's not that big a deal since the leaked images already show off most of the new things he gets. The only thing missing is more images of Strafe.

Leokaiser still has a ton more stuff worth looking forward, since we still don't know if he comes with all those combiner weapons, and if he has unique hand/feet parts.
>>
>>5431912
Get Star Saber or any of the MMC figures you listed.
>>
Just ordered my first Transformers toy, MMC Spartan. Do any of you guys know of a good Megatron figure that scales with him? I couldn't find any good IDW Megatrons at all, so I'll take any design as long as it scales and looks good.
Thanks lads.

>>5431280
Octane was a huge disappointment, so I wouldn't recommend him.
Atrotrain is pretty nice though.

Hegemon and Apollyon are your only choices right now. Bold Forms' Gladius should be releasing soon using the IDW -ation series look.

>>5432046
Star saber or hexatron, each have very unique transformations and due to animation like accuracy have plenty of gimmicks, saber is also big for an mp and looks good in any mode, can't say the same for hexatron some of his modes are half assed but still decpticon ninja consultant and courageous autobot commander/best swordsman are some of the best

How's it going Transformers General?

I was contemplating on buying LG Arcee, LG Chromia, and LG Blackarachnia

I was also debating on the other two fembots, but am not really sold on them since they seemed kinda plain in the paintjob department.

Although I kinda really do want them also.

Nightbird is awesome and doesn't have the arcee giraffe look with the ugly pink. TFA arachnia is mediocre which means the legends also is. Chromia is pretty neat.

You know what I liked about the Hartman cons? Actual, original characters as exclusives. It felt cool having a new character introduced in the mythos. Sometimes they were big players like Shokaract, sometimes they were minor grunt like Vicegrip. Either way, it was cool to have something fresh over some G1/BW/comic character in a body that doesn't look right.

Yep, but get interesting rumors from time to time.

Except for the other toy brands who get tons of photos posted before the event ends.

Giraffe? I really like Arcee though, I have her Hasbro one, but been longing for the Takara one. And I like pink.

I heard the major issue with Blackarachnia was her neck gap. Did anyone come up with mod to cover that?

Wouldn't a headmaster Scourge work out really well though?
He'd be in similar scale with the latest Cyclonus and Galvatron and the helmets on the voyagers could easily be his laser thing.

I will say, while I don't think Galvatron is disappointing, personally I love him, but I'm just a tad annoyed about the jet kibble. I don't care that he turns into a jet, because personally I don't mind the "eh, whatever" alt-modes, but what did get to me was the fact that it creates a big backpack kibble that also gets in the way of robot mode and cannon form. It's just that they made it too big. I think this could have been solved if they made the nosecone shorter, to make it less intrusive as kibble in other forms.

That being said, I do at least like the jetmode, it kind of reminds me of Animated Megatron with the cannon underneath the cockpit.
>>

I spoke to one of the reps at NYCC, he said we can see them on shelves in Fall. However, since it looks like CW is wrapping up with nothing else to put on shelves we haven't already seen, and the Sky Lynx wave probably coming out in April, I'd say it'd be a safe bet to say Titan Returns will come out in the summer. Naturally including Galvatron, as he is Wave 1 with Sentinel Prime.

I also hope there's some somewhat interesting backstory like in the bio as to why he's a headmaster now. If I remember correctly, in Rebirth he thought the idea of merging with organics was disgusting, so I'd like to see if they give a reason as to why he caved.

Though I'm not counting on it. Better start working on my headcanon, I guess.

Fuck that bullshit, you stupid faggot.

Yes, Fun Club wasn't perfect and they fucked some things up. But they did God's work GOD DAMN IT providing characters Hasbro would NEVER EVER EVER fucking touch.

to be fair a fairlady z is tiny, this isn't perfect but it ain't bad either
>>
>>5433045
>>5433051
Alright, I'm looking at some of these comparisons and it's funny how sometimes the MP is taller and sometimes the Alternators is. Must really be the Fairlady then.

I honestly kind of want to pick up a few Alternators. Anyone here have experience with the quadraped Ravage mold? It looks kind of wonky but the concept just seems so cool that I'm drawn to it.
>>
>>5433063
The alternators are going to be a touch bigger, and I think MP Tracks especially is a bit small (he even looks tiny next to the fairlady), and not all of the Alternators are scaled with each other, but on the whole it shouldn't look too weird displaying them together.
>>
>>5432800
I just dug a tub out of storage to go through, actually.

1. Energon Scorponok
I dig this guy, but i wish he were a bit better. Some locking tabs to help hold his alt modes(particularly the less than convincing "jet" mode) would have been great. Still, he's a nicely articulate bruiser. Looks good beside RTS Lugnut.

2. Bag of Seekers
Robot Masters Seeker trio, plus Energon Starscream and Universe Skywarp. I'm glad i own the Robot Masters guys, just for historical sake, but they're kind of crap. Skywarp is decent, being a recolour of Stormjet from BM... his hover mode always made me want to try my hand at making a blaster form for him, but it never solidified. Energon Starscream is still great, though. Well, ok, mostly great. He could use a knee position that 's not either straight up and down or BAM 90 degrees.

3. Classics Megatron
Timely, with it's re-release in new colours. Man, I forgot how this works... shit. There. No... There... no. Oh, the wing tabs. THERE. He's still a great gun(though just a bit too small for my grownup ass sausage fingers anymore).

4. Cybertron Sideways
I'd been looking for this guy. He's such a great toy.

5.? Bunch of Dinobots
For some reason, I have three packs of still sealed on card dinobots. They're two-packs with what looks like Armada packaging, but they're labled as just "Transformers: Dinobots". I don't remember when or where I bought these guys, I just remember very clearly there was a specific reason I was keeping them on card, something about them that was special.

I don't have the biggest budget either. I found mine used on ebay for $40. It's the most I've spent on a single bot.

He's honestly pretty fun. The neck articulation is particularly nice, but he's pretty posable over all. I usually display him doing a cat stretch and I've also seen people have him in a sitting pose. He's definitely more articulated than, say... Sky Lynx, and bigger too, if that helps you make the decision. Not dissing Sky Lynx btw, I'll get him too for sure if I can find him at retail price.
>>
>>5433453
I think I'll pick one up then somewhere down the road. Ironically enough I didn't really get into Alternators back in the day because I was young and if I had to pick up something for $20, I was going to pick up the one with the electronics. Of course nowadays even $45 won't get you any electronics. I definitely regret not getting in on the line.

All this new shit is coming out soon and I could have gotten 5 deluxes for the price of this one old figure". I have a very specific list of stuff I want so that I don't overspend: Female characters, anything with a base mode, 86 movie characters, stuff I liked when I was a kid, combiners. Unfortunately most of the things on that list are big ticket items.
>>
>>5433541

Luckily the all the tires are still there even if 2 cracked but I already fixed it with my plasticweld and that they're both $90 with the manuals and the missiles. Oh and the joints on them are still tight so that's another bonus for me.
>>
>>5433583
They've got some issues

Megatron: terrible knee articulation, no ankle tilts, nonremovable fusion cannon (that's pretty bad in itself) and low shoulders

Ultra Magnus: no wrist or waist swivels, bad hands that have trouble holding things and no ankle tilts

Magnus is the better of the two though.

Whats wrong with his knees? The joints are nice and tight.

Magnus should've had molded fists with standardized weapon pegs though, I'll give you that. But you should be able to futureshine his hands if yours is having trouble gripping stuff.

Wei Jiang MPP10 OP
>>
>>5433646
I disagree on the Wrist Swivels not being important. Anything with a melee weapon, especially as iconic as Magnus with Hammer has become since animated, needs wrists.

Course hands that can actually hold the weapon in question would have been above wrist articulation , but we didn't get that either.
>>

The wrist swivels wouldn't add much too him for the hammer if you take the blue arm armor in to account. At least you can make the hammer shorter. And honestly The second gun attached is unnecessary especially the way it's shaped.

They'd have to do some major remolding so I don't see that happening.
>>
>>5434168

Twas a crime that the regular release didn't come with the g1-toy-style battlemask. If it had, and if the windows had been dark smoke tinted rather than blue, I probably would have bought one.

>should be no more than $30 - $40 or so, tops.
Importing mine at release costs $41 plus shipping. Really not a bad price considering there are plenty of unlicensed, non-transforming action figures that are much less complex that cost the same or more. But for some reason, MP Bee will always be the target of the "$50 basic" meme.

You're right, that's just wrong
>>5434168
This needs to be updated to $65
>>
>>5433970

Currently, Silverbolt-type molds are the best overall, though the Onslaught remold of Hotspot improves upon the original Hotspot design by being both more secure and not having the fire engine ladder crotch.

Skylynx looks like it'll probably be right up there with Superion unless something goes horribly wrong.

Motormaster-type bodies are the worst of the different types. The first runs (Motormaster and Optimus) have hip ratchet problems, which were fixed in the re-release with Battlecore Optimus (and the Motormaster that was issued with Battlecore, plus the Takara ones). However, they're still top heavy compared to the others, making them harder to pose. They're the C's in a line of B+ to A+ molds.

>>5434214
This. 40 bucks is fair. 65 is price gouging.
>>
>>5434262
It's weird that they're gouging on the MP cars, because the Datsuns were similarly overpriced, but the other releases like Prime, Grimlock and Starscream were cheap compared to their import prices.
>>
>>5434153
>>5434275
>>5434262

Please, Im begging you, stop calling the pricing of a toy, a complete luxury item, "price gouging".

It's actually physically painful to me to see the term so grossly missused.

>I have autism and I took one econ course

Overpriced then.
>>
>>5434275
I got the TRU Prowl and he was what, $50? Which is higher but not unreasonable. I don't know what's going on that's making them jack up the prices like this. I bought MP Grimlock when he got his TRU release and I'm pretty sure he cost only $10 more than Bee. Didn't Starscream cost around that when he got rereleased this year?

I'm probably just going to buy the KO. I didn't like Bee enough to import him and I damn sure don't like him enough to pay $65 dollarydoos.

>>5434326
Charging more than is necessary for an item you know people can't get elsewhere? That's price gouging.

Sorry you're so #triggered. Why don't you go blog about it at #firstworldproblems? Nobody's allowed to have opinions unless they're a swollen bellied African child with flies in their anus right?

Piss off faggot.

>>5434337
That could be true as well. Econ 101 libertarians are literally subhuman.

Prowl's MSRP was $70 when he first hit TRU, but he went on sale multiple times thanks in part to being released around the holidays. I already had the Takara version, but picked up a TRU one for $36 during one of the sales.

>>
>>5434382

I have all the CW G1 bots. The only one I kind of go "Why do I have you?" is Sunstreaker, and thats only because Sunstreaker is the one Transformer I've always done that with. He's always offensively yellow to me.

At least Bumblebee usually has a lot of black to him. Sunstreaker I feel never breaks his yellow up enough for me.

I'm starting to really dislike ratchet joints. I keep getting figures where one is "off by one." Like a knee or elbow that flops around about 15 degrees but otherwise works fine.
>>
>>5434399
Urban Camo Ruination redeco when? I need that shit in my life.

>>5434410
Ratchet joints are great, but the problem is Hasbro cheaps out on the click points, so you end up with something like Prime Shockwave, wher his legs only have 3 clicks outward.
>>
>>5434399
How much more for CW Prime repainted in black and gray and teal to go with it?
>>
>>5434391

So what are the chances they'll toss out a Ruination repaint?

I mean, shit, they had no problem throwing out those fugly G2 sets.

I was going to make an offhand "inb4" about some autist getting triggered over our incorrect use of "gouging".

You see, the implication is that, we, toy collectors, DO see toys as a required resource for life, hence the hyperbole of referring to overpricing as "gouging". You moron.

I think that anon might have misread what he was replying to.

Lugnut's honestly mostly perfect. He doesnt have a real weapon, just some smaller ones sprinkled around him (like the hidden missiles in his wings), and some find his shoulders weird. But that shit is negligible.
>>
>>5432734
Maybe he'll make G.B. Blackrock into a Headmaster just to be a bastard. In the comic, Blackrock was just discovered to be Cybertronian, and Galvy took pleasure in greeting him as a 'brother', despite Blackrock's denial of not being human. Could work...

CW Wheeljack doesn't bother you?

So is Titan Wars just gonna be Headmasters?
>>
>>5434585
Mostly Headmasters with some redecos of the noncombining CW toys.
>>
>>5434580
He doesn't own him.
>>
>>5434580
Wheeljack isn't a disgusting bright yellow. He's a white figure without all the paint apps we would like.
>>
>>5434505
But Galvatron's headmaster is Nucleon. Also, not every toy is reflecting the comics. While Galvatron could get updated design-wise to match the toy, Cyclonus didn't become a combiner, and Swindle was killed off. So I'm not sure. Maybe they will, I have no idea.

Weird question, anyone wanna trade a pair of black perfect effects hands and feet for a pair of blue ones?

I wanna buy the perfect effects set for Optimus, but I think black hands and feet look better... But I don't want to spend like $100 and it up with an extra pair of hands and feet.

Seems like a concept for a 3-step (or whatever number) changer. It's like those one-step ones, but each half of the body gets it own mechanism.
