So is it safe to say this will never see the light of day?

Jihazy or whatever they call themselves.

 

The thing about them is that while they have the talent to be a leading 3rd party company, they adhere very strictly to copyright laws and are only able to sell their kits at limited specified events.

 

This of course is very diferent from Fansprojects, Impossible toys, iGear and so on who just don't give a hoot.

 

I know this because I talked with them several times trying to buy their stuff (I still like the frog/girl)

 

Anyhow, it may be made, it may be abandoned, but chances are, you could never find or afford one even if its out there.

I've seen the Powerglide and Cyclonus on eBay. Price Even seemed reasonable if you can appreciate the detail of the pieces.

If it was dine I'm pretty sure he would have documented the progress.

You call $999 reasonable?

 

Im with Liege on this, the original animal formers are way more interesting. I think this company just got screwed because every character theyve done has gotten an update. Powerglide, Ironhide, Ratchet, Wheelie and the especially superb Cyclonus.

 

I think the same thing is going to happen to the guy(s) making Arcee. I have a hunch that Hasbro will put out a Generations Arcee just to teach all you people who shell out a lesson.

That price is pretty insane. When I first started seeing a full assmbled and painted power glide I want to say it was closer to $100-250. IMO that is the best model they have done but I'd love to see a much more accurate version of Ironhide. I'm just not a big fan of the classic one that's a SUV or whatever it is. Jsut makes it a whole new character to me. They did a great job keeping Hound true to form and Optimus Prime And the Decepticon jets as well.

 

It doesn't really make them classic if they don't look like the Gen 1 vehicles. More like neoclassic.

What really kills it for me is the $40 shipping.

it's really not that bad considering they strap it to a guy's head and have him

swim across the Pacific and then hitchhike to the Atlantic coast

: agree

 

on that same note Universe 2.0 was real hit or miss with me.

They just really overcomplicated ironhide and Ratchet. I wish they had simpler transformations along the lines of Energon Inferno.

I still love the transformation homage that is Energon Towline.

I liked the Transformations, they were complex and unique. His alt mode was like a jigsaw puzzle but thats a non issue for me since they are displayed in robot mode.

    • 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!
