So what that anon says is true, sort of.
They look about the size of a computron foot with the same ratchet, and the hollow is where the sparks will sit and act as gestalt feet.
I don't think you'd ever want to hold a hammer/maul like this but Ultra Magnus can manage it pretty well I think
X2toys upgrade kit
Its happening soon.
So we know he has ports in his lower regions, what about the upper body?
How would it work, those thighs don't look ratcheted to hold up a deluxe unless there is something I can't see
He has combiner borts in his forearms too, that side box art makes it seem like his arms will form the combiner thighs similar to Silverbolt.
Also that retail deco looks much more appealing to me (stickers aside, at least) The way they absolutely gob paint all over demo models is really off-putting.
>new combiners confirmed
>entire line is a merger of cw and tr with little twist of creativity with engineering
>takara will have to restart the UW subline
MY WALLET CANNOT ENDURE THIS
All these unpainted prototypes are cool and all, but where are the actual new figures we haven't officially seen before? This isn't just going to be it, r-right?
>mfw TR wave 3 didn't even hit my country
>the cheapest TR deluxe i can find cost $35
>probably have to wait until late 2018 for POTP wave 1
such life in the rice field
That leg looks like it could be a monsterbot, so maybe terrorcons are gonna be spread across waves?
And it also seems backwards (at least relative to how shinbots were in combiner wars). Maybe the monsterbots are gonna be engineered so their backside faces forward like G1 combiners?
its like im destined to be with leftover stuff
Hey, if you keeping making those pretty pics, you're sure to get some kinda spending cash.
GIVE IT UP FOR GENERATIONS
((room applauds like a bunch of inbred fanboys))
>slash is a legends female dinobot
>all of the dinobots look amazing
OAFE-kun, if Q&A time comes then please provocatively ask them if they plan on actually improving their paintjobs anytime soon!
Also, that Grimlock looks like shit.
>one of the panellers literally said "VERY COOL"
>the new combiner dinobot is volcanicus

I drew this after getting TR Sky Shadow, though it's not quite Obari
>finally get combiners that look genuinely cool
>all the important characters were already done terribly in CW and we only get literally whos and fanfic characters like the Dinobot combiners
>hi my name is meg
>tf and mlp fan
Shut up meg
>hi I'm 12
Anon's who are at this thing PLEASE ask about paint apps and the situation with stickers
Person who thought Classics Prime was the best CHUG Prime here.
He no longer is.
>Imagine aThunderclash remold from That leader Optimus Prime.
>no one asked about the stickers on voyagers and up
... So this was it? We got to see Dinobots and Optimus Prime and that's about it?
For fuck's sake, can't believe I stayed up for this shit. The figures themselves look alright but this is a cocktease at best, not a reveal.
wait why does he have another pair of hands on his torso(they look similar to his combined hands)?
>judging displayable collectibles for their "fun" value instead of their actual aesthetics
Took them 11 fucking years to make a CHUG Optimus at least as good as the Classics toy.
Takara does the mp's, hasbro does the retail "shit" with takara doing the design work.
Anon we're simply aged beyond what general retail can sustain, if anything it should help us save money...
Except for me I'm going full retard and buying everything
Well we know new things
>combiners are back
>we know the dinobot combiner is all new
>we know starscream gets something
>we know leader prime gets the most cartoon accurate orion pax yet
Luckluster yes, but we learnt things, mind you the leak killed alot of the joy
Good spotting and good question
People love to hate
These are TOYS anon, not statueshit
>still has hollow legs and weapons
You said this was going to be the "kino toyline", /tfg/. You fucking lied to me.
I think I may get Sludge to go with this set of Dinobots Jr. Not really sure about assembling the entire combiner.
No just cancel all that shit, make Transformers Masterpiece in the same category as Hot Toys. Heavily detailed Likflike representations of the characters. You can subsidize everything else with the movie lines.
I think I may skip it too.
man those arms look bad. hope thats just the photographer sleeping on the job
Hey, I can admit this one looks better than the Classics in most regards, but I'd shill for the old Voyager any day over the atrocious CW or TR versions.
Maybe takara will finally release their Liokaiser.
wait I thought he has his trailer in his vehicle mode?(hence the silver/grey panels on his forearms)
yes but it doesn't function as an actual usable trailer
As much as I love prime he looks very g1.
He's already conflicting with my mp10 which is my g1 (with the classics as its own take and the tav and ALL of its redeco's and retools along with the "classics" deluxe as my deluxe scalers).
I actually like the look but I can't have another of either...I just hope to god no sales come I bought tr voyager prime and megatron because of those
Anon, she's way too well proportioned to be retooled from this. Unless they explicitly said that in the panel, then I'm calling BS.
>people like this over Classics because it looks like MP-10 with more kibble and a bad truck mode
At least Classics OP looked unique and doesn't tower over the new Grimlock. Ideally the cab should've been something between Classics and G1 that turned into Optimus, and the super mode should've been a unique design like what Armada did.
I'll wait for the superior red headed takara version
I see the dinobots being ruined by their colors.
If they paint the gold and use the same grey from the mp grimlock and starscream I can forgive them, anything else is an instant pass.
The gimmick and the rather accurate depiction of orion pax are nifty, price would be a factor though.
IF I get one it's so I can mess with it, sadly mp10 can't do what mp36 can in...robot mode that is
For something that anon can fap to obviously
with what, the taste of cold metal to a fucking robot?
Just embrace 3P already
>G1 IS RUINED AGAIN
>I DON'T LIKE THIS DPICTION OF CHARACTER X
>WARDEN RUINED IT
>POOR FAGS BWAAAAAAAAA
You call this fucking nice?
>complains about kibble and bad truck mode
>asks for Armada Prime
Did you even own the toy? It was awful, even as a kid. Truck is ugly as fuck. Standard mode felt like it existed solely to become the bigger bot, but then Super mode sucked even harder. Trailer/base inverts, stupid base-mode guns hanging all over, legs unmoving. What exactly did you like about it?
Define Kibble. I can understand preferring one way over the other, but if you're mad that it's there at all, then you aren't paying attention.
>What exactly did you like about it?
How the hell did you read that much into what I said? Armada Prime's regular super mode sucked ass, no question. I just said that this new figure should've done something unique with the combined design, like how Armada OP had that unique head and the truck roof for a chest.
but the trailer parts hanging off the back are kibble as well.
They have their own advantages but neither are better than the other, only giving a personal win to the potp because it looks more articulated than the classics one
erm...hate to be that guy but I like how expressive he is and the fact he blows normie tf collectors out of the water.
I can use mine to blackmail people into buying another if they scratch him, I can have an autismo army
Hopefully the final product is closer to the drawing than the prototype in >>6520526
Holy fuck, you still think Classics Prime is "kibbletastic" because of some fucking non-intrusive side truck panels on its arms? Are you missing the new one doing the exact same thing with the trailer or else? I'm not even the greatest apologist of that mold but your complaint is incredibly silly.
No delusion. The Henkei one is just better. I'd rather not have a Prime that towers over the new voyager Grimlock they just revealed. The new one looks decent though, unlike the horrific TR and CW toys.
I know you're baiting but you still made me mad anyways, fuck you for insulting the most patrician figure ever made.
Nothing will ever replace my Henkei Prime. I'll buy the new one too for the Orion Pax toy though.
Lord, forgive these children. They'll know their folly next year.
At least it was better than this shit
>Ugly muted colors
>Parts forming super robot head
>Even less articulation in super mode
>Trailer has huge hollow gaps everywhere
Sure, it's a flaw, but you have to be really trying to nitpick to think the sides of a truck are the most aesthetically devastating thing ever made. The rest of the figure still looks absolutely amazing in terms of design and proportions and the arm kibble is hardly intrusive with some decent posing. IMHO, I think it's possible to enjoy both this one for being a bold redesign and the new one for probably being the best non-MP rendition of G1 Prime we're getting.
>all this bitching
Here's an idea. Let people like what they like because everyone has shit taste compared to everyone else.
And if you feel the need to bitch go back to your hug box on allspark.
TAKE IT BACK NOW YOU COLOSSAL FAGGOT, I DIDN'T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO INSULT MY FAVORITE DIACLONE
>wanting an oversized optimus
Fuck, I still like the new one but it's hard to deny they don't make them like that anymore.
Yeah, how dare those people like quality toys with nicely updated alt modes over the slavishly G1 shit!
Deluded about what, Amerikek? About carrying the torch into Generation 2 while Transformers were being slowly phased out in Burgerland?
Transformers was literally only good for this one line. If you disagree you are factually wrong.
Goddamnit, all the intricate little detail in those figures and all those aesthetically pleasing robots... Never ever again...
>towers over voyager grimlock when grimlock should be taller than him
>same size as jetfire when jetfire should be WAY taller than him
>taller than any of the voyager megatrons when he should be the same size
>grossly larger than all the deluxes when he also needs to be moderately taller than them
this toy will only look good in a collection for those chucklefucks who like to use those leader CW megatron and starscream molds.
So at least we can agree that MP10fags are the most deluded people in the fandom, right?
>implying liking Playskool figures isn't the most embarrassing thing in here
>In an ideal world nobody will buy the new Grimlock because he looks like shit
It looks better than the Classics 06, FOC, and Fansproject Grimlocks. And those are the only other options for a CHUG Grimlock. I think it looks fine.
You guys know you can buy and like multiple toys of the same character, right? Like, you don't have to act like autistic manchildren every time a new toy comes out. Just buy what you like, you dumbfucks.
This plus Leader Rodimus Prime have have basically made my dreams come true. I don't care if the rest of the line is steaming garbage (it isn't), these two figures alone are worth it.
>Hot Rod and Orion bro-ing out, only to power up to Prime mode when shit gets real.
>terrible disproportionate square chest
>tiny-ass claws on dinomode feet
>meme-tier clear plastic over low-quality gold plastic instead of chrome
How is it possible to engage in the sunk cost fallacy before you even buy the thing?
Not even the anon you were replying to but you sound incredibly pathetic desu.
You're that anon who keeps posting that stale anti-Titans Return pasta aren't you? You really should look into medication.
They just don't make them like that anymore. *sniffs*
I am inclined to agree. This is why I have stuck with Classics Prime. He is just the right size and doesn't look lame like every other Voyager Prime.
Like I have CW Megs, and he's cool but he is just too fuckhuge to fit in with my Classics so I still use Prime Megatron for my CHUG display.
>wanting an oversized optimus
You say it like it's a bad thing
Ooo Micronus looks like Samus' helmet if you take away the target logo.
WAITAMINUTE! So the general consensus is that people DON'T like Classics? I love 'em. But I think all the lines have their hit and misses. I just had no idea people didn't like Classics over all.
>I just had no idea people didn't like Classics over all.
It's just a handful of people who can't stand scary new ideas inflicted upon their childhood cartoon characters but won't shell out for MP or third party figures.
