For fuck's sake, if something you can you at the very least simultaneously display them together in bot / optimal cybergorilla mode, but that hoverboard is such a dumb move. I can see the issue here in just making him a straight-up realistic gorilla like the original, the MP just launched and a CHUG would look pretty dull in comparison, but jesus fucking christ, couldn't they at the very least reimagine as some form of cyborg-like munky like >>6523852?

So he really is just a shellformer for such an abomination.

Jesus I'd of been happy if he had a flip over helmet for the monkey head and the chest rotated around and then he'd be swell, the ONLY thing that would make me buy him now is he gets chromed the fuck out in optimal optimus mode.

If its metallic/flat blue that would be terrible, christ don't even know what I'm doing since I own both deco's of the mp but I want an optimal optimus so bad

He also needs wheels for the ground wehicle mode, and the new one is missing the ones on the legs at the very least. No moving panels with wheels underside here, just boxes.

Believe it or not, some people form emotional attachments to characters they like. Changing a fundamental aspect of that character can be divisive.

Imagine if you went to see a Star Wars movie, but instead of Darth Vader being an evil space samurai, he was an 8-year old kid who liked go carts. It'd be pretty jarring for you.

It just seems like a cop out...UNLESS idw recons this and says that surfboard was his cybertronian alt mode but I'm fairly certain he was depicted as a beast former from the get go.

I see it as an easy fix with just those 2 modifications, I can see 3p/modders making something up because I see hasbro saying "out of budget" as the excuse

Judging how the body transforms, i think you can get a largely gorilla ish transformation from the organic primal, you'll just need something to cover his head.
I'm a little surprised they didn't have a head flip out from under the cockpit, then swivel the whole backpack
Expect 3p to go this route

>>6524477
the simplest way to give people what they want is just a flip out head (or even a mask, can even be a separate part) and something for the chest, being deluxe sized I can forget the legs and crotch and even the backpack kibble
>>
>>6524469
The organic Primal is a gimmick. He's literally just an Optimal Optimus with a gimmick mode where an Organick Prime in bot mode can pop out his back. Literally they could have just not have included the extra mode and kept everything the same and there would be no complaints.
>>
>>6524479
To be fair, it's not the same Optimus.

But the new one has its charms too
>using a modified mp10 head and overall shape makes it the BEST modern, g1 restricted prime that actually includes the trailer
>doubles as the PERFECT g1 show accurate orion pax
>features all modern advancements of articulation this line offers (subjective)
>Great for those with mp10 who don't want to damage it or hate the limitations its age brings
>Even betters without mp10 who are missing out on a true leader prime

I might actually get it despite owning that voyager, the old classics deluxe, mp10 and many other primes including the entire set of rid warrior classes, though I want to see what takara does as the stickers annoy me to death
>>
>>6524483
Optimals robot mode requires little primal
The board gimmick mode is superfluous, but you can't have optimal in two of his three modes without it.

I know. They could have just left him as part of the sculpt of his torso. They didn't have to give you him.

>PotP Dinobots - Unite to form "Volcanicus!"

>We had the great honor to meet Takara engineers and Hasbro designers in the HasCon VIP lounge,
to discuss the design of the Power of the Primes Dinobot's combined form: Volcanicus! Some interesting points to note:

>Voyager toy includes two feet, while each Deluxe includes a hand. What can you do with the extra pair of hands? The designers thought of this and came up with two cool options: first, you can transform and combine them with the feet a posterior extension of the heel!) for added stability. OR the Takara engineer showed us how with Volcanicus they were designed to plug into his mid torso to provide a more bulky and strong look.

>Combined form can hold either a Primemaster or the Enigma of combination.

Wow this is it, this is what is making me finally drop the line, I'm going full third party now. They actually care about the fans and the toys designs. No hollow parts, superior materials and articulation, just the whole package. POTP just looks like knockoffs compared to them. Not even Takara's superior paint jobs and accessories can save this line. hasbro you ruined it, you took your golden goose and just shat all over it with gaudy G1 garbage that nobody wanted. You didn;t even have to release an Optimus primal with realistic fure just one that looked like the in-show model and transformed just like the original figure.

Also not fair considering how Titans Return is a completely different change in design priorities from old CHUG, they went from modernized characters to direct reproductions. If you're claiming that the old figures were better than the average TR then I will undoubtedly agree with you but, if you limit your comparison to the scope of the Prime Trilogy instead, then TR still comes out on top.

Classics Voyager Prime is still the best CHUG Prime that I'm aware of. His 2 main flaws are the arm kibble and the fact that he's kind of short, although with toys getting smaller, it isn't as pronounced as it used to be.

Let's look at some of the alternatives/options.
1) Classics DX - Super G1 in robot mode, kinda trashy in truck mode. Somewhat gimped by gimmick.
2) Energon Prime - Fat with scrawny limbs. Nice Megazord mode though.
3) Cybertron Prime - Awesome, but too big for CHUG.
4) First Strike - Actually pretty good except for the HUGE backpack. As much as I hate the movie designs, I like him. But he doesn't fit CHUG aesthetically.
5) Battle Blades - Too Bayformer but otherwise, really good.
6) DotM - Ahahahaha... no. He looks like a Revoltech reject.
7) Evasion Mode - Great Vehicle. Amazing that they could get a movie style robot into said vehicle, but again, too Bayformer for the role of CHUG Voyager Prime.
8) TLK - Looks like a movie Prime, but not an Optimus Prime.
9) WfC - Too small, but otherwise super cool.
10) FoC - Even smaller. I have him as the oversized leader of my Legends/Cyberverse.
11) Prime (FE) - Totally awesome. I love this guy. Just not as CHUG Supreme Commander of All My Autobots though.
12) Beast Hunter - Love him, but not CHUGgy enough.
13) RiD - Too small. Although I'm tempted to grab a cheapo oversized knock off of him.
14) PotP - Too big. But I'm still gonna get him when he comes out. I think he he looks really good.

The thing is, a lot of CHUG are deluxes and Voyagers. Leaders don't really fit as Prime isn't supposed to be the biggest of the bunch. TT/CW Ultra Magnus and Jetfire fit because they're supposed to be oversized.

Classics Voyager pretty much wins by default. He's not perfect, but still excellent. His articulation is very good, despite what some people say.

Yeah, I'm looking for a replacement for him. But at the moment, he's still the best for that very specific role as CHUG supreme commander.

If Hasbro had their shit together, they would have scrapped Titans Return PMOP and tried to find some middle ground between the two here. The Powermaster gimmick would actually have worked in POTP since they could include a little Hi-Q titanmaster matrix dude that plugged into Prime's grill, and most importantly, a truck cab that turned into a robot that could also fit into the trailerbot. I'd rather have one decent Leader-class Optimus Primes with the span of a few years than two mediocre ones a year apart.

I have him amongst my MPs because I still haven't gotten around to getting an MP10 but yeah, when I get him he'll also be a centerpiece on a separate shelf. Either that or I'll just leave MP10 next to him in truck mode and do a sort of combined display for the best of both molds.

Speaking about MP04, holy shit, how can it be he has appreciated this much in value? I remember thinking having paid 200 buckos for a box with wheels was too much but jesus christ, this is out of control.

Big difference between the neutered (smoke stacks only iirc) hasbro mp01 and takara versions.

I got lucky and got a near mint mp01 final production version with the sound stage for $150aud but its usually $200aud+.

The versions with the trailer go for much more, that said this is the first time I've seen one listed as "new" and that should only be half that fucking price

How will POTP and takara be handled?

UW line restart with the leaders going into legends or will takara create a whole new line?

I just can't see them pulling an ass pull of doing the combiner characters individually, but that begs the question, with the UW line resurrected what will they use to pad out the legends line, can't just use leaders and legends class figures could they?

Why? Because they know Transformers collectors have no standards and will compulsively buy this shit for a collection.

Hey, so I've updated my POTP list with the reveals we got this weekend.

Question for you knowledgeable people. Optimus Primal/OpOp will be my first mainline transformer purchase since I rediscovered my toy passion (I only have both BW MPs). How much do the leader class figures typically cost at retail? What do people think these will cost?
>>
>>6524763
Yep.
I sucks, but on the plus side, we're finally getting an actual Transmetal.

There's about 100 season 1 Primals out there, we didn't really need another, even though it would've been nice.
>>
>>6524754
Why did the Prime Masters have to be so shitty?

>>
>>6524809
$75.
>>
>>6524809
Depends on your geographic location. But people think it's too high no matter where you live.
>>
>>6524809
In the land of the free, it's usually between 43-46 dollars, depending on the store. I fear however that the LK price model is the new standard, so expect a $50 price tag for all that fancy engineering.
>>
>>6524818
They double as weapons(shells) and "power ups" for larger bots(prime sparks).

My guess is they want to make this 4th category as a permanent thing since it worked so well with the head-erm "titan masters" and thought using pretenders would work.

Consider this:What would be a "good" way of honoring what was empty shells that fit over what would have been legends size class figures?

We had discussions here before, could have voyager sized shells with legends sized figures but then its just a crappy shell, could merge it with the robot but then the shell and inner robot concepts are gone much like rotf and rid bludgeon, how would a triple changer who goes from shell mode to robot mode to vehicle mode work?

At least we are able to recognize them, best part is they're merged with prime sparks so primes from comics and so forth are getting a mention.
>>
>>6524818
>30 years later, and Hasbro still can't make an articulated Pretender.
I'll have you know John Warden Sr. was a god among designers in the 80's.
>>
>>6524826
Thanks! $50/$60 seems like a great price especially for OpOp's triple change if you ask me.
>>
>>6524833
Different people anon, just because they have the same blood doesn't mean the same talent is passed down.

Not that it matters with current budgets, labor and material cost, wages and so forth.

The only kicker is John Warden sucks as a speaker (what he said about g2 bruticus still pisses me off) and he might be chasing incentives from hasbro higher ups ie "if you save $400 budget we'll give you a bonus!".
>>
>>6524818
Maybe it's because no one really cares about pretenders, so there's no point in making them anything other than tiny figures that aren't important to the main gimmick of the line

Okay, bitch, don't respond to my question with a question. WE ALREADY HAD AN OPTIMAL OPTIMUS AND HE ACTUALLY LOOKED BETTER THAN THIS.

For the allegedly crown jewel of this line, he looks distinctly underwhelming and the surf board mode is a fucking joke. The engineering leaves much to be desired and he doesn't even have weapons.
>>
>>6524901
It's aesthetically pleasing, Optimal Optimus LOOKS like the source material, and I think the idea of Primal being a base bot is a cool little gimmick. I also think Primal being the hoverboard for Op Op's beast mode as a reference to TM1 Primal is fucking clever as hell.

It just looks like an all around fun bot to mess around with. I could care less about Primal being a skateboard because Optimal Optimus looks pretty fucking rad.

I also have Beast Gorira and MP Primal as my designated representations for the character, so PotP Optimal Optimus doesn't have to be a 1:1 copy of the source material for me.

You're not alone. Imo CW, TR and POTP are what the main lines *should* be - interesting and fun takes on not just G1 but all of the Transformers lore, which do innovative things with old gimmicks. Slavish G1 should be reserved for MP's, which it is and all of you fucks complaining should just switch to collecting those. Being able to link up two Titans and 6+ leaders into a colossal mega-city populated by tons of headmasters would have made my kid-self go bananas.

The only downsides are the low budget hollow plastic and stickers, but you take the good with the bad. Regardless, anyone who looks at pic related and doesn't think it looks fun as fuck is dead inside.

I like them and all but this worries me, wouldn't these have been NEW mp's in the past?

This is the third time we had mp ultra magnus now, mpo megatron has demand and it was known from its initial release so I can forgive that, mp bee would be because of the mpm bringing back nostalgia, mp10 to meet with mp36.

It doesn't match the aesthetic it's built upon, I'm aware there is matching god ginrai armor that DOES work with it and I would excuse that.

But each to their own, it looks "ruined" to me simply because its out of place and knowing an additional cost was spent in an attempt to "fix" a figure was made.

Also didn't spot the arms were altered so that's a pass, well anyway enjoy your prime, I may not find the appeal but good on you for doing so, I'm more into repaints myself and have 3 of that prime
>>
>>6524943
which version is this one?
>>
>>6524969
Again, I think the busy-ness of the ginrai head matches the rest of the figure pretty well while still looking more like Optimus than the original movie head. Also, no additional cost was spent because the whole thing is a KO and cost like $15 for the Prime and the add on set.
>>
>>6524972
Ah I see, that's fair enough then if its a ko

>>6524971

>>

Hrm, if that's the case would they be willing to do reissues of the online exclusives?

If bandai can pump out reissues of older model kits, even their online exclusives, why not online mp's, I'm sure someone out there would like a second chance at the mp sunstorm again (I'm aware that thundercracker and skywarp had reissues but from hasbro asia branch and takara, and those between themselves differ in paint apps slightly)

Meh, the recent comics indicate that primes aren't really anything special.
Primal getting the matrix is gonna happen, and that'll put a spin on things, but I'm betting it won't be anything big.
Trypticon won a pop poll and got a toy, and only got a side story in the comics

So Volcanicus chest can open to reveal a slot for a TM/PM. Obviously for the Enigma of Combination PM that will come out but I like this kind of design.

>>6525018
Posted that before in the previous thread(s) but no one seemed to care.

The position makes me think of 2 uses, could just be a chest cannon, the other is as we mentioned a tm/pm connector, but the "face" of the figure would be facing upwards/downwards and not forward with the figure which seems silly.

Sure we'd know its there but instead of seeing the spark being them proudly/krok's head wondering wtf its doing there we'd just see the top of the figure sticking out.

Has to be something we're missing, or I'm missing likely
>>
>>6525023

oh...oh no...

>>6525024
If there's any PM that's face is shaped in a circle, that would be great to use as a chest blaster. It would've been an awesome combiner if not for that >>6525023

Hasbro doesn't control distribution. Your shops do. Take it up with them.

Retail for toys is weird, some places literally don't understand that shipments come in different waves. So they heavily order wave 1 and omly when they run out do they reorder, without caring wtf is inside. More wave 1s, wave 7... it's all the same to them.

That would surprise me, given that half the Matrix was destroyed by Rodimus (saving half of all Cybertronians, so that seems fair) and the other half has since been lost.

So the fully decked out Abominus will be shown tonight, his chesplate and head are 100% g1 accurate. You can see why Hungrr's beast mode looks so spindly because he doesa defensor by pulling out the whole chest 180 degrees around the figure. But the end result is a bulky looking torso. It's a very complex transformation probably the most complex torso yet.

No, I'll just keep getting Takara Leader/Voyager figures that I like.

Only other things I want are Prime and Optimal Optimus. But, of course, they'll also have shitty stickers, so I'll have to wait even longer for Takara to release theirs...

This is what I don't get. You cannot find a single surface on any recent figure that hasn't been hollowed out or recessed in some way. You can literally see them trying to squeeze out the minimum plastic possible and stopping right on the edge of the toy crumbling apart. Would it really cost that much more to have guns that aren't hollow on one side, or robot backs that didn't look like wafer checkerboard?

It's infuriating since the designs are fantastic otherwise. I'd actually be in favor of more stickers if it meant more plastic used per figure.

I'm really surprised that no third party has come out with their own line of hollow limb fillers - they could probably make a killing.

>I thought his bio said he could withstand temperatures up to 8000 degrees, Fahrenheit.

He's still in one piece and didn't turn into a puddle, so I guess it's true.

MP Bumble was 51K yen. By the time you shipped him here, just about $60.

BBTS asks $60 plus shipping. You know, the rest of the way from WI woherever you live. Toys R Us asks $65 with "free" shipping. So, you know, $60 plus $5 corporate shipping too.

Both BBTS and TRU still have plenty of Bumblebees. Yet we're to believe they're "scalped to death." Come on.
