WFC Bumblebee---like the figure except for his slight hump-back-edness or dumptyism (whichever you prefer!); love the weapons; slightly less enamored with the open hands and slightly gangly limbs; wish the alt was more like his G1 Pre-Earth mode, but enjoy his Tron-iness and fun transformation---7/10

 

WFC Prime---like the alt mode and transformation a lot-very intricate; not a fan of his big ears and small overall size-wish he was a voyager (Bumblebee's head seems to be twice the size of Prime's); wish the weapon pegged like the directions say without coming unhooked; wish he was more like the 6" Titaniums in design of both robot and alt; I really enjoy the WFC aesthetic on his alt (and Bumblebee's) for its own merit---7/10

 

OTFCC Punch/Counterpunch---I love him a lot! Wish the head(s) was larger and wish they had figured out a way to do 2 sided hands---9/10

I got Alternity Megatron. He's awesome, but his legs are disappointing. I've tried beefing up the pegs, but that didn't work out very well. It helped the roof immensely, as it now will not unpeg easily, but it made it harder to get the side panels pegged onto the shin because there's no way to get enough leverage to put them over the now thicker pegs. I think I'm just going to tighten the false knee and slide the side panels in between the gray piece and the translucent piece. It looks better that way and it's more stable unless you pull on his foot.

And now the other day I received my VF-17 Nightmare Stealth Bomber. The jet mode's chubby, but solid and fun to "Whoosh" around. The robot mode looks awesome, but it doesn't have normal bending knees without modifying the legs slightly. There's plastic that obstructs the shin bending back. It's a really nice figure overall, especially after the knee modification, but I wish Kawamori weren't such a scatterbrained fool who can't help but give his otherwise extremely well done figures some sort of horribly debilitating flaw.

Just got a ton of stuff:

 

Generations Thrust - WAAAAY better then I anticipated. I love this mold now, also the paint is Takara quality. He's like a crimson pearl. 8/10

 

Generations Drift - Dont care much for the character but the figure is awesome! Very well designed, awesome vehicle mode and an even better robot mode. 8/10

 

Generations WFC Optimus - This is now my favorite deluxe Optimus figure ever made. 9/10

 

Generations WFC Bumblebee - Very nice, 7/10

 

ROTF Knock-Out - Not as great as the Scouts that followed, but also not really bad. Squarely in the middle. 5/10

 

ROTF Dirt Boss - See above. He gets a small bonus for having an unconventional alternate mode. 5.5/10

 

ROTF Dead End - A very zombie-ish looking figure with a neat little car mode. 6/10

 

PE-Rumble & Frenzy - redecos of Shadow Warrior with all the pros and cons. 8/10

 

Knight Morpher - Ummmmm, okay. He is very well designed but very poorly planned. A lot of loose or too tight joints mar a good looking bot. The trailer is a nice touch tho. 6.5/10

 

Revoltech Gurren & Lagann - I feel a little jipped because you cant form Gurren Lagann with this release, even tho both bots necessary for the combining are present. Joints are ratchety and classic Revoltech: they suck. You almost feel like your going to break them when you try to move them and often they wont give you the desired pose you were wanting. The blind-packed figure it comes with is garbage. Those things aside, he is pure awesome BECAUSE he is Gurren & Laggan. 7/10

 

McFarland Halo 2 Master Chief - a nice figure that could use a bit more articulation, but overall a nice representation of the Chief. 7/10

 

Spawn figures are Spawn figures, made for show - N/A

Picked up Sea Spray today. Haven't opened him up yet, but he looks decent enough in the package. I like the packaging because although it looks like it's for the ROTF toyline, they don't state what line it's for. So now I think he will go in with my Universe and Classics!!!!

Went on a mini road trip today about an hour north to look at a toy store. while there we learned of a location of another couple minutes up the road. Found an Alternators Smokescreen. No Box, no directions but the figure is complete with weapon, in my oppinion good condition, minus doors that dont really snap in, not sure if they're supposed to. Never thought Id actually get this figure but for $10 I figured what the hell.

And he's pretty cool.

Forgot to mention that I opened my Bioshock Big Daddy figure too.

 

He is MASSIVE and real heavy. Just like the other Bioshock figures he is oozing with personality, great paint apps and attention to detail. I cant help but wish there was a light inside his helmet tho, this figure is big enough for it and for the price I think it woulda been good. Just like the other figures tho, articulation is almost nil, these guys are solely made for display and thats it. I give it a 7/10 as a display piece but a miserable 4/10 for play factor (even tho its not meant for play I dont think).

Well, I opened Sea Spray today. Overall judgement.....7 out of 10. First off he's got some personality with key objects. Like for instance, his face looks like a diver's mask and he has flippers that can pop out of his feet. That's a great Gen 1 nod to me. I was upset that there wasn't a lot of yellow paint apps. I'm not sure what series of toy he belongs in anyway, but I just put him in with my Classics/Universe series. Transformation is easy and his alt mode is cool looking. Even has a docking station on back for "scout" figures to ride on. Possibility would be about 6 out of 10. I don't like the way his feet are situated and causes you to have to bend his legs back at the hip to have him stand up straight. Just to sum up things, he's a pretty cool figure and actually looks really good standing in the Classics/Universe line.

i got seaspray myself not too long ago, and i am really digging his frogman motif! the scuba tanks on his back, the cables and tubes running along his body, and the sleek design of his robot mode all add up to a totally unique and awesome aquatic themed transformer. ive got mine standing next to wal-mart powerglide. i reeeeeally hope they do a voyager or ultra warpath!

    • 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
