Generations Warpath does not disappoint. Great looking figure, fun transformation - not complex at all yet good enough that he doesnt look like an unfolded tank. I do wish he had some kind of weapon other than the shoulder missile launcher, but its not a major complaint.

RTS Jazz - Find him, get him. Enough said.

 

Generations Kup - Don't like that the shoulders don't lock in place, and the wheels sticking off his shoulders are awkward, but otherwise great!

 

DOTM Crankcase - Creepy cool little figure. Also, not quite as small as I feared, and has some paint where it counts. The Mechtech weapon is surprisingly fun!

 

DOTM Megatron - Like how his truck mode is almost completely opposite Optimus' in aesthetics. The only wave 1 Voyager worth getting, IMO. (Shockwave and Skyhammer aren't part of wave 1 :P )

 

DOTM Roadbuster - Most of the paint went into the track car mode. I can live with that, though it does leave the robot mode a little dull. Wish the Mechtech weapon locked in its chainsaw configuration though...

 

DOTM Topspin - Being in the 'Stealth Force'/armed up vehicle mode, Topspin is much more interesting in both modes. Unfortunately, the left weapon pod in robot mode tends to pop off if I'm not careful. I don't mind that his Mechtech weapon doesn't lock.

 

I think this Mechtech gimmick is growing on me! Still won't convince me to go after the ones I had no intent on getting in the first place.

Got leader Ironhide today from TRU.com and it's got it's disappointing bits without a doubt, but he juslt looks so awesome that I forgive them!

 

One of the most badass looking figures ever just plain standing. Weapon features are all very nice. The stationary head and one shoulder that has the same problem as Sentinel Prime's shoulders only worse is all that really bugs me. To a lesser extent, it would have been nice to keep the face plate down by itself but it's a minor thing.

 

Sucks, cuz some poses only look good with the head turned the right direction. I may end up modding it if it isn't too difficult.

 

I wouldn't let the small flaws put anyone off of this guy. He's worth it!

 

 

 

UPDATE: hhhhmmmm...that was easy. Just kept at it with a little elbow grease and got the head turning without surgery.

An awesome local collector hooked me up with Warpath and Thundercracker at long last. My seeker quest is done!!!

 

 

 

I must say, I had expected a figure that would be rather rough from all the mold use, but I must say the Thundercracker is one of the most solid of the bunch. Everything nice and tight and the guns don't fall off! Not to mention, he just looks incredible! I think my favorite of the classics seekers.

 

Warpath, man what can I say that hasn't been echoed around a thousand different threads already. He's perfect!

Recently:

 

DOTM Leader Bumblebee- he's pretty good, I really like the alt/stealth mode, esp. w/ extra weaps such as Laserbeak's guns x4. The chest is just weird, tho, looks tacked on.

 

DOTM HA Whirl and Tailpipe- love them, but, as usual w/ the HA line, the humans are way too small. Best left out of the proceedings. Love Whirl's gun mode, I need another one for John Woo-style poses. Tailpipe is cool too.

 

Gens Warpath. Very nice, but another H-tank? I like that he has 3mm clip system ports all over, I need more of those little weapons. I gave him Whirl's twin gatlings, ubt you have to shave the edges off the clips for them to fit. Looks great tho.

    • 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
