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.

    • PrimeVsPrime rolls out an in-hand look at the Transformers R.E.D Transformers Prime Optimus Prime figure. The non-transforming Robot Enhanced Design figure is the next release for the Prime Universe captures the show look nicely, as you can see in the visuals that follow.

    • @Joe Velez I think that box art is legit. Watch the scene from the movie. The little pink Bumblebee idea is really pretty funny.  
    • In a week with family sickness courtesy of the big C, and tech issues, in light of a missed countdown question, I offer a personal list this week with the Transformers most special to me and why. Back to our usual voting this Wednesday!  
    • I'd rather this be video game tie in toys and not more Netflix show tie ins. But ultimately I'd rather see figures made from the Predacons Rising movie than anything else. I'd also like some from Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call! as well. The Beast Wars II movie would be how we get Burning Convoy and Flash Lio Convoy decos lol. But most importantly, it will give us Galvatron Tripledacus and Magnaboss!!! Preacons Rising will give us Predaking, Skylynx and Darksteel. Maybe even Prime Megatron and Starscream that aren't G1ified like Knockout, Arcee and Bulkhead.
    • Looks fine to me. It wouldn't be the first Laserbeak figure made from a pink colored Bumblebee that we got. And since he wasn't the same size as Bumblebee while looking like him, core class makes sense instead of a deluxe. The box art matches up with the scene it happened in too. Granted that the other core class SS figures don't have THAT large a background as the character art is featured more prominently. Maybe it's the art that will indeed be on the box but photo shopped and sized incorrectly. Assuming that the figure is actually coming out that is. So if this is true then it's another core class meant to scale with the larger figures like Spike and Ravage do. Obviously the Bumblebee made from this will scale with the other core class figures like Shockwave and Ratchet. I think it's kind of brilliant. One mold can be two characters for two different scales.
