I waiting for the red repaint on him. Toy does look good just prefer the alternate color and I don't need 2 of the mold

 

Also in case anyone is interested I found a way to attach laserbeak to ironhide to form a backpack. I dunno why he does so well I hope when soundwave arrives it will work the same.

*sigh* alright, deep breath...

 

RTS Legends Megatron - BEST of the RTS legends. Pretty decent articulation for a legends-class figure, too. Just a great figure all-round.

 

RTS Legends Optimus Prime - Also good, but not as good. Lacks poseability in the legs, but the arms are decently articulated. I know it's kind of stupid to grade legends figures on articulation, so I try to go easy on 'em in that department. OP is fun, but definitely not the best.

 

RTS Legends Starscream - Really fun to transform, but shite to pose. The interesting transformation is worth it, though, and considering I only paid $2 for each of these (except for Megs...had to get him off evilbay) I think I got more than my money's worth.

 

RTS Legends Gold Bumblebee - I'm so burnt out on Bumblebee at this point...I mean, it looks good, the transformation is fun, and the Goldbug homage is just a little refreshing after the slew of 'bees we've had lately. This figure is probably more one for completists, though, ESPECIALLY if you already got the Classics 2.0 Legends Bumblebee (which I missed.)

 

Generations Deluxe Thunderwing - I'm not quite sure what possessed me to buy this figure, as I'm not too terribly keen on the design & I know very little of the character...I suppose I did it to fill out my Classics Decepticon ranks on my shelves. Having said that, he's actually a really cool figure. Both the jet and robot modes are badass; the robot mode hits the late-G1-Decepticon look right on the head, and the "stealth" jet mode looks great despite having a folded up robot mode on its underside...a fact which, pleasantly, reminds me of Energon Megatron.

 

In short, a great 'Con to add to your Classics collection.

 

Human Alliance Basics Tailpipe - I'm so glad these are $5 now at Walmart, because I'd never pay more than that for this thing. That being said, I feel like I at least got my money's worth. He's not the best motorcycle-former, but he gets the job done. The human figure, of course, is crap, but somehow doesn't look too bad riding the motorcycle despite being comically undersized for the job. The "targetmaster" is shite, though I imagine it (in gun mode) would look better being held by a substancially larger figure.

 

On a side note, the headsculpt just screams "Gobot" to me. If this figure were orange, it would make the perfect Dart homage...actually, now that I think about it, it could make for a decent movieverse Wreck-Gar in that colorscheme, too. He's got that square-head look that Animated Wreck-Gar had.

 

If you're on the fence & you're like me, in that you like motorcycle-formers, I wouldn't recommend him. The alt mode works, but at the same time kind of looks like a motorcycle-shaped clusterf**k of robot part...but it's fun enough, I suppose. A solid 5.5-6 out of 10.

Generations Skullgrin..as a part of the "Save the shelfwarmer" campaign! LOL! Amazingly enough though I really love this guy!

 

DOTM Shockwave...

 

So I was looking for a DOTM Skyhammer which will have to wait for a bit till I can finally have a copy in my hands but then OMG!! Shockwave became more awesome than I thought he'd be! On my copy his cannon's a bit flimsey and the springs are a bit weak but he's just so awesome! My only gripe is that I wish the hands were the same color as his forearms to blend in with the cannon more and that his hands swiveled with the bicept...more for movement than anything but otherwise he's almost perfect!

 

That cannon mode is amazing! Just solid!

 

Love these guys!

DOTM Cyberverse Shockwave Fusion Tank playset...

 

Ugh, just don't. The Shockwave figure itself is nice, but mostly for the robot mode (which has awkward arm articulation.) The main vehicle mode doesn't fit together right & just ends up looking like a purple pile of Cybertronian poo. Plus none of the base/combined modes look right, either. Definitely not worth $13.

    • 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.
