Your newest figures and your verdict

Recommended Posts

I purchased the RotF Movie Deluxe Soundwave. I haven't tried to transform this figure yet as I really enjoy it in its robot form. Since I haven't transformed it (mainly because I'm intimidated by it rofflebot[1].gif), I can't give you as in-depth of a review as I would like. But the details of the figure are really awesome and it seems to be a sturdy figure. Anyone who has seen my review of three of the Voyager figures in another thread know that a couple of those I have don't seem to feel sturdy in their design. Soundwave feels sturdy and the paint job is decent. I'm looking into possibly getting the Movie Deluxe 2 repaint of this figure as it may seem to closely resemble the movie counterpart more.

 

But it's still a fantastic figure. This is one of my favorites out of my very small collection of Transformers.

search the forum. Theres a couple threads about unofficial transformations of Movie Soundwave. The figure is lots of fun, with nead unlimited alt mode pottential.

I've seen everything from a sword (mine), to a placement cannon. You'll have alot of fun with him.

 

 

And yes, Animated Starscream will forever suck :tdown :BS :puke :poop

ROTF Deluxe Soundwave is one of the worst figures of the line. There is alot of crap in the line and Soundwave was one of the first little nuggets...

 

The Meeting at Nemesis blue paint job helped polish the design. But IMO, he's a still a shiney G1y goodness piece of crap...

 

The arms are terrible to pose. My legs keeping popping off at the ball joint. And they cant support the wieght of that pointless winged backpack (which I cant see a decent configuration for)...

 

Buy Sideswipe. Or Bludgeon (the Metallikato repaint). Those are excellent deluxe figures...

A little late in the game here, but i picked up a MP Skywarp the other day, and the GIJoe ROC movie. I havent opened Skywarp yet, or watched teh ROC movie yet though. Also picked up Shockwave/Longarm and have yet to open him as well. :P I guess im waiting to move into my new apartment to have the room & get back all thats in storage to start anew, and not have the step mother around to break them on me, like previous years. Hes AWESOME! \ i guess im on G1 kick right now. :shrug I was HOPING to get Perceptor and the Insecticons but i bet there gone now, and i havent been to a TRU in a year. :tdown :( I WILL go all the way there for Arcee and Ratchet though, hoping Perceptor/Insectcns are there.

 

But reading all this talk about ROTF and been thinkng how i think how the line failed as a whole for me. I like Leader Prime, but i havent seen my Leader Prime in months. :( And i picked up the Ha Skids n Bee with Sam/milakea and i :love my Ejector and Arcee, but i dont see myself getting anymore until i feel the need. HOWEVER i do like NEST & also have been collecting Legends ROTF figs to have a full set of on screen characters in some form. Including Legends Devastator jpn exclusive ;) They all go pretty well together but i still need Legends Jetfire, BB, Soundwave and Swipe/sideways to be complete.

 

My thoughts on Arcee, is shes just "fun" and i enjoy her unique transformation and look. Ejector is full of awesomeness! And i cant wait to do some fun "action pics" of him. Devastator is SO awesome! Peaugh failed to mentioned or possibly (by the sounds of it) KNOW about all the articulation this guys has. He has posable shoulders, elbows, swivel arms, & can move his arms forward to mimick the look of walking on all fours (esque movie like), and swivel legs, bendable knees, and feet, and posable head. *yes Peaugh mentions some of this, just made him look like he wasn't posable. BUT Peaugh's vid helped me combine him so thats cool.*

Not really a "new" purchase but last week I did pick up a BW Depthcharge and BW Rampage off of Ebay and have been having a blast with them so far. The two really bring back memories, Beast Wars was the TF show I grew up with as a kid, I remember having pretty much all the figures as a kid, even the really shitty ones like Injector and Scavenger. But to me Rampage and Depthcharge were the biggest characters I remember, I loved marine life as a kid so of course my favorite characters would be two giant aquatic bots beating the shit out of each other :tflaugh

 

Anywho onto the verdict for the two of them

 

Depthcharge :bwmax

-Beast Mode

I usually keep him in this mode because of just how much detailing you get to see on the fins and the nice chrome on the manta ray's head. Only complaint is that the tail isn't really that flexible but it was a toy from awhile ago so it's not a big deal.

-Vehicle Mode

What Vehicle Mode?

-Robot Mode

All around badassed, he looks very show accurate, he comes with the sword and gun he used in the show and he's just an all around cool figure and one of my favorite BW figures. Only compaint is that when looking at him from behind or the side his tail area really stands out.

 

Rampage :bwpred

-Beast Mode

My Second favorite mode, his bigass claws are just so fun to pose and put other characters into, mainly Bowser-boy. Only flaw is that this mode takes up a ton of space because of the claws themselves, luckily though I don't intend on keeping him in Crab mode.

-Vehicle Mode

Pure Win. This mode kicks so much ass, the giant crab cannon rotates and the tank treads actually move when to push Rampage forward, the treads are rubber and the cannon will actually fire which make him just so much fun to move around. Hell when I first got him I spent about a good 45 minutes just playing around with his tank mode and have kept him in tank mode ever since.

-Robot Mode

Probably my least favorite mode out of all 6 modes these 2 figures have. Rampage has very little leg support, his arms are a pain to pose due to the crab legs being attached to his arms, and the US version's coloration is a bit off since it's mainly orange instead of red. Eitherway I don't plan on keeping him in this mode.

 

And Liege for the record I to dislike Animated Starscream, his vehicle mode is ugly and his robot mode is no better. :tflaugh

I think it's awesome you llke you Ejector so much. i wrote a little about how awesome i thought he was a while back but nobody replied. Good to hear someone else likes him as much as i do. I was hesitant about him when i saw him in package but then i thought to myself "hell, he's a toaster! gotta get that" and i don't regret it. He looks great on the shelf. i keep em in robot mode and i customized him a bit with some paint apps. Made him look a little more ferocious.

Anyone else thing this topic should be pinned in place of "what I bought today" :schin

 

I mean, post your hauls is the one we use on regular anyway. Why do we need 2 of the same thing up there?

Red Ryder is loaded, just need a camera man and I'm blasting that f-tard to holyhell!

    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.

    • Toyhax really surprised us with the Conversion Set to change Siege Sideswipe to G2 Go-Bot Optimus Prime.  
    • Just in from In Demand Toys are a couple of images of the First Look at Transformers Legacy Buzzworthy Bumblebee Creatures Collide 4 Pack. This is the second Collide Boxed set with Autobot Goldbug, Ransack, Sky Wasp, and Predacon Scorponok. What has been leaked for some time, we've seen most of these figures but here we get the full look at the packaging and proper names. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
    • Target's Summer Geek-Out dropped their new Transformers X Tonka Mash-Up set, the "Tonkanator", with official images and details. The G2 Yellow Devastator is rebranded as a Tonka team with logos and all at a price of $104.99 USD. What should be immediately obvious is Hasbro owns both of the brands, so it is an interesting idea that may or may not resonate with fans. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
