Your newest figures and your verdict

Duh. He's also quite a bit better if you turn the shovel around at the "elbow." While your doing that, take out the discs in those joints that work the Mech-Alive, round them out and shave them down so they're fairly flat and put them on the back side of the joints (you can leave most of the teeth, though, as knocking a couple choice teeth out will make the disc sit flatter). This will tighten the elbow joint quite a bit without having to use messy glue.

 

Later tonight I'll see about posting a picture of Demolisher in his kick-ass bike mode with Brakedown riding him.

Now THAT is cool.

 

I've always thought Demolishors main attraction would be his sheer size, and that he should have gotten the leader class treatment...much more might have been put into the figure. Like arm articulation. I like the voyager toy, but I've got a couple hundred TFs I like better. He's just kind of meh.

 

TFA Arcee just showed up in the mail today, and I can't wait to release the toy from it's twist-tie prison. I feel like Joe Don Baker at the Ponderosa Steakhouse, what I've seen of Arcee has been awesome.

Earlier I had Demolisher set up in an earth grinder mode and I had him standing(haha, yes, standing) over Rollbar so one of the earth grinders(tread) was posed above his head.

 

"No, Mr. Rollbar, I expect you to die."

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

To a large degree, Demolisher feels like a machine oriented Mutant Transformer, akin to Razorclaw and his Mutant ilk.

Here are the pictures of the bike mode:

 

But but but- they aren't to scale! *brain splodey*

 

Seriously tho, that looks really cool, kinda like the Batcycle from Dark Knight. Demolisher/Scavenger is def. fun to bend into diff arrangments, like ROTF Soundwave but not nearly as fiddly.

Alright, had to succumb to my impulses and went out and bought ROTF demolisher. The alt mode is decent, with average detail and some nice rubber treads. As said by everyone else, the robot mode is complete crap, as it lacks articulation in the only useful limbs he has (arms), can't move his head (haven't checked, and if, there's no point really), and has bad engineering and design all over the place in general.

 

That's not why I bought this piece of junk though. Yuyuyami, you are 100% in saying the only point in this figure is to turn it into other crap, treating it as a morphing vehicle of sorts for other transformers, rather than a figure on its own. The "bike mode" is highly satisfying, though I did mine slightly differently. Currently, I'm enjoying using him as a t-rex walker of sorts for scout dead end. So wonderful. pics tomorrow when I have time *edit: If I have time. if not, thursday?

Damn.

 

Arcee is tight.

 

DAMN.

 

The base mode is awesome, all it needs is paint apps...and I can do that. The alt mode is better than I thought it would be, and it looks eerily like G1 Misfire, which is more of a good thing than should be possible.

 

Animated continues to rock me like a hurricane. God, I hope they eventually release new molds of Animated toys I REALLY want (Omega Supreme, Slipstream, Ramjet, for starters). I'd sacrifice the souls of the innocent for that.

    • 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
