Got Animated Ironhide and HFTD Battle Blade Bumblebee...

 

Animated Ironhide is nice. It's got a well-thought-out transformation, a decent alt mode, and the 'bot mode has a lot of character. The accessories are meh; I usually leave them attached to the back of the vehicle/backpack. Also, why is he orange? o.0

 

Battle Blade Bee...is a disappointment. The cannon is yellow & doesn't even remotely look screen-accurate. The axe is backwards. The figure is just so lanky & scrawny, and the chest is wrong. The transformation, like ROTF Bee, is overcomplicated & the alt mode doesn't fit together right. (Though unlike ROTF Bee, he's actually a bit taller. -_- ) The only good things are the flip down mask & the poseability; he can pull off some pretty awesome poses. He's fun to fiddle with, at the very least. In short, he's an undersized, anorexic HA Bumblebee with a couple extra unnecessary features.

HA Lead Foot can die in a fire, though.

I'm working on some mods from another board to try and improve him. I'm liking him better, but still can't recommend him to anyone who isn't a big HA fan...

 

No need to do the mods, I found a great way to transform him that can even include Steeljaw:

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!

 

Yeah, Shockwave's awesome! I gave mine some ball joint wrists:

Thats coooooooooooolllllllll!! Where did you find those and how did you do it? ^_____^

 

Here you go, I posted a detailed thread in the Garage Forum!

 

 

OH! Thanks Jon! I think I may try this ...maybe get another Shockwave because I lack some skillz.

 

 

 

BTW, DOTM SPacecase, Roadbuster and Top Spin!

 

Loving Spacecase. Just awesomely done and am thinking of going off and getting a couple more for drones but he looks awesome paired with Terradive.

 

LOVE Top Spin and only complaints I'd have are his headsculpt...it's...ok. I guess he's pass for a toughguy. Weapons galore so...WOOT!

 

Roadbuster...wish Hasbro used more time in painting this little dude. He's soo bland. AWESOME...but sooo bland. I still like him though. Want a weaponized deluxe version!

I did some mods to mine that I saw savio-prime do at TFW2005 in their Radicons section:

Dude! These works are becoming masterful! I think Peaugh had a Bumblebee that almost looks like the upgrade you made. Just awesome! I'm almost thinking of shipping my BB Bee and Shockwave to you! LOL!

 

Just awesome!

Just gopt SKYHAMMER!!! WHAT!??! ^_^

 

He's verry all too many kinds of ... :awsum :awsum :awsum :awsum :awsum

 

BUT there are some stress marks on him which gave me kindofa :argh :argh :argh when seeing them because I was searching high and low for him and finally found him at Targe`. Not too excited about the marks though but will live till I find another one. He'sll probably be my favorite of them all when I finally find another one. This is when I want doubles or tripples!

    • 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!
