Your newest figures and your verdict

Space Case is a great repaint to arguably one of the best Deluxe figures from the HFTD line. The other Target exclusive repaints, the Deluxe ones in particular, can rot on the shelves. :P

 

I've wanted ROTF Skystalker for awhile. The stores around here never stocked him or Scattorshot. Sunspot's colors didn't appeal to me, either. But I got him because I wanted the mold. And I can't complain much at all about the mold itself.

NYCC Prime BB and Arcee set- NICE! Just to note, some of the more fickle folks might not really like how the chest parts on either of these are and Arcee has a little bit of kibble issue that restricts shoulder movements a little bit. Not horribly, just worth mentioning. Also when you are posing them you kind of have to keep making sure the shoulder/chest parts are lined up well, they can easily move around and end up out of place.

 

Otherwise, they are fantastic figures. They look every bit as good in person. Some think the pink on Arcee is too much, but I kinda like it and it fits in a g1 homage sort of way.

found Guzzle the other day at wally world

i'm loving the cyberverse commanders more and more everytime i get another one.

this little guys's pretty cool, and the fact that his two weapon pods combine for his rifle is nice.

i actually have the original and i gotta say....the comparison is appalling.

the colors are the same, but that's about it

Get the BB mobile base and use that to carry Guzzle and Flak. Those 3 were meant to be together. Add a couple of the guns that came with the exclusive legion figures (they plug into the holes on roof of base vehicle) and you have an awesome small mobile ass kickin' team bringing the hurt.

Generations Thundercracker - It's the Classics Seeker mold. The colors look nice, but now I've gotta get Starscream and Skywarp to go with him. :P

 

RTS Tracks - I like the tribal flames on the hood, and the robot mode actually works better than I had initially thought! I'd still say if you have to pick between the two of 'em, get Wheeljack. Would have been nice to paint the inside of the doors to continue the wings...

 

TFC Toys Exgraver - I'm in love... :love After shaving the teeth in the ludicrously tight ratchet joint for the shovel arm a bit, there's really no problems whatsoever.

 

FansProject Causality Thundershred - Imposing bug mode, with the clips that hold the mandibles/blades on being strong enough to hold onto a Scout or small Deluxe. The blades are a pain in the rear to get on/off the first couple of times, but it IS doable. Robot mode is very cool, and it's surprising just how tight his ball jointed hips really are. Those things really don't want to move easily! I like the gigantic shuriken option as well as the claws.

 

FansProject Causality Stormbomb - Bug mode is surprisingly compact, aside from the horn, yet still commands some attention. Not entirely crazy about the curved blade weapons being the front legs, since it's really not hard to bump them off the grips that hold onto them. Also, a place to store the chain in bug mode would have been great. Not a big fan of the waist armor, but I understand why it's there. The weakest of the three, but not by all that much.

 

FansProject Causality Backfiery - Bug mode looks the part, and holds all six kunai, but doesn't quite have the same presence as the other two. Maybe beetles are just cooler than grasshoppers. Robot mode is another story. Easily the best robot mode of the three, even if the back kibble doesn't really lock in anywhere. Be aware that the kunai are quite, quite pokey. If you only get one, this is probably the one to go for. But all three look so nice together...

 

DOTM Barricade - Mechtech weapon is stupid. Barricade himself is for the most part superior to the original Deluxe, though I'm mystified as to why the heck Hasbro decided making a predominately black robot's crotch white was a good idea. It stands out, and it really shouldn't... But hey! Actual hands! A head that can turn! A waist that can turn! And no stupid as heck punching gimmick!

    • 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
