Your newest figures and your verdict

Picked up Generations Special Ops Jazz and Turbo Tracks. I was disappointed by both figures. My main complaint is that the legs and feet on both toys are too floppy, making the toys unstable.

 

Tracks' feet are especially bad. He's laying facedown on my desk right now because I got tired of propping him back up. His dimensions are pretty comparable to his g1 toy, but compared to the rest of the Generations line, he looks short and stocky.

 

Jazz's plastic seems pretty cheap and flimsy. The hood-chest of jazz looks almost knock-off tf flimsy and there are three different colored white plastic parts on the figure. The shoulders and neck are a whiter than the chest and doors. The forearms are painted white that doesn't even come close to the rest of the figure. While the speakers are a nice touch, overall this figure was a disappointment.

 

To end on a bright note. Both vehicle modes look great and both figures have pretty good articulation (though the floppy ankles and feet will prevent them keeping that pose on your desk).

 

*edit* Jazz's chest just looks flimsy because the blue headlight plastic and the slightly transluscent white plastic make the plastic look thinner than it really is.

Haven't gotten anything new in a couple of weeks, but haven't posted on any of them either. Just a quick rundown and thought...

 

Wreck-Gar...Must get at least 2!

Prime...Great pre-Beast Wars Prime if you choose to use him in that sense.

Kup...Great update!

Perceptor...Ditto, great update!

 

PX-04 Ultimate Form set...FANTASTIC! Must have set if you are collecting any of the Fan's Project armor kits. I don't know what people have said about it, but I've been loving every bit of this set. Great quality and super badass!

I got Protector last week, and it's great to have an excellent Classics Rodimus Prime! Now the Titanium version can go into storage. The only downside is that the spoiler extensions are obviously that in robot mode - I might decide to leave them off. Overall, a bit of a splurge, but worth every penny!

That must just be you then because my Jazz and Tracks are excellent. No floppy legs or ankles here. Jazz is probably one of my favorite. EVER. Sounds like you got the QC shaft.

I have floppy ankle joints on my Tracks and the knee on right knee on Jazz is pretty flimsey but that aside, I love these figures!

 

I just got Sergent Kup today and I'm really loving this great update to Kup. The car design is awesome and if it were a real car I think this would be on my dream cars list. He looks pretty fast and a wonderful concept car. Anyone know what this was designed after?

 

Robot mode is awesome with the only problems I'd have to address are the way the elbows are designed and the front wheels not having a better way of locking in. Also the shoulders don't lock in anywhere but I do like the design a LOT! I'd buy this again in a repaint.

 

Kup won't stop yelling at me! "Get off my lawn!!" That's what he's saying.

OH HO HO HOOOOOOOOOO!!! I received MP Rodimus Prime yesterday, and actually handled him today. I haven't transformed him yet, but so far I'm loving it.

I know that Holden in Australia makes a swoopy car-based pick-up, using the front end of their Commadore sedan IIRC. EDIT- it's called the Commadore Ute:

Sharp. Pontiac had a concept version of it, but we know how that ended... :tfpwn

That one is pretty cool! Almost reminds me of a VW GTI by looking at the front end. Pretty nice indeed.

 

Look! I don't think it's THAT manuverable. Look at those poor cones.

    • Yeah he's a pretty chunky monkey! I'm hoping his bulk lends itself well to some of my future builds! 😄
    • Uh did I miss something? Where does it say that it's a partial of Huffer? It's not stated in the quote here or in the livestream. In this quote it even says that it's "ALL NEW in three molds!!!". I mean it's standing right there next to Huffer and nothing looks to be shared. Nothing can be shared either as there's nothing in common with their transformations and all their parts work differently from their hands to their knees to their ankles to their waists, arms and torsos. Cosmos' transformation looks most similar to Warpath which would explain the leakers saying that it was a retool. Even then however, they share no parts. Warpath also has what looks to be like twice the parts count from all the flaps compared to Cosmos. I take this full quote as it's completely new as he states that there's a certain budget for new molds and that Takara managed to work within that budget to get all the parts needed while only using three mold sprues. It looks it as there's not a lot of individual parts. It looks like there's one mold in green, one mold in yellow and one unpaintable mold also in yellow. Two of the three shades of green are paint, the yellow on the arms and face is paint, both shades of blue are paint, the red is paint, the silver is paint. Which makes me wonder where the flag came from. If it came from one of the molds for Cosmos then it's not white. Meaning that they also used black and white paint. That's a shit ton of colors used on just one figure. There's also quite a bit of paint on him in general.  This guy is just showing him next to one of the other "Minibots" to better get a feel for his overall size. Not to show that Cosmos is a partial of Huffer.
    • In what has been a bit of a trying week, and limits imposed on some social media, I also celebrate 3 years of GotBot Goes Live and being married  (yes, they both coincide) with a Wednesday edition of the live show covering Legacy and Velocitron leaks and a few channel updates!
