Classics Blitzwing


Backfire

Recommended Posts

 

Scourge and especially Cyclonus were epic, but I have disowned Universe/Classics Galvatron. That toy is so ridiculously fail-ridden that I can't even begin to articulate it. The arm falls off. The cannon falls off. Back kibble just floats around, just like his chicken chest. The legs and feet have failed me endlessly on countless occassions. Even his face looks like he's suffering from the tell-tale symptoms of Taco Bell-induced diarrhea.

 

I'd love a Blitzwing in the Generations/Classics/Universe vein. I just don't think that we are going to see one for a very long time, so I've just made do with the Animated version. I also don't want to see HasTak cheat and throw in a "futuristic" tank or jet (or both) mode. I'd like to see 2 recognizable, modern-day vehicle modes squeezed in there, even if one mode (like Astrotrains' bullet train mode) must fail.

Last week, I pulled some more Classics from my storage unit for display, and Faillvatron one was one of them. I forgot why he was in storage in the first place. I've never seen an arm fall off as much as his, along with other various pieces. And this is supposed to be Galvatron!!! Why is he not the same height as Classics Op Prime? Shell former, you are right that Classics Galvatron is a big Fail.

 

Also, I also want an Astrotrain that turns into either a Locomotive or modern diesel locomotive. I hate the bullet train Transformers. They look cheap and uninspired. And yes, a Blitzwing is a must!!!!

I also think Classic 2.0 Galvatron is epic fail.

 

my classic Galvatron,stand in right now,is Energon Leader sized Galvatron. I suspose the Takara super link ultra sized Galvatron might match up better with classics voyager leaders.

 

I'd love to see Hasbro/Takara make a masterpiece G-1 Styled Galvatron with a laser canon alt mode.

The way I see it is that galvatron is the upgraded form of the two pack deluxe megatron that was also a tank

I can see that. I don't like it much either, and it's WEIRD that it was used in an advertisment for the next classics line at one point...

 

I think Energon Galvatron, the smaller one that came in that weird 2 pack with the more pose-able, less fat Energon optimus, is the way to go for Classics Galv. I think that might be on scale with roddie and prime.

The way I see it, is Hasbro needs to release a new Galvatron, that more fits who Galvatron is. he does not have to be Voyager, as Rodimus is Deluxe But it would be nice for Galvatron was a Voyager so he can go toe to toe with Ultra Magnus. Which is one reason I'm debating on buying that Galvatron Upgrade to WFC Megatron, But I would also have to buy another Megatron. I am hoping also that Hasbro will release a FOC Galvatron that can even be a repaint with a new head of WFC Megatron.

Yes, they do need to release a new Galvatron. Like Sparkless stated, the 2.0 Classics Galvatron was the upgraded version of the tank Megatron. I really need to get a decent Classicsverse Megatron. I only have the "Special Edition" that was sold on hasbrotoyshop.com, and like the classics Galvatrin, is a complete FAIL!!!

The best ClassicVerse Megatron IMO is the Henkei Voyager Megatron especially after you remove the wings as I like to call them. I've only done it a few times it is a simple pin in the back that can easily be put back in.

I will look into this one. I need to up my Decepticon ranks!!! Oh, and sorry to get off topic, but how many of you all mix series? For example, I throw RTS Fallback in with my Classics, because it was in the RTS line. I have Banzaitron mixed in with my Classics, because tey never really stated what series he was in and he just looks bad ass. I feel wrong mixing series up, but another example. Music Label Soundwave fits right in to the classics line IMO. I'm just trying to get others thoughts. Thanks!!

I have my RTS Banzia-Tron hanging out on my 3rd Party Shelf, waiting for his Ronin Upgrade. I have my two Botcon Drag Strips also hanginf out on my 3rd Party shelf cause it looks cool to have them do ninja poses on either side of my Butcher Onslaught. All the RTS Classics are on the Classics shelf where htey belong. I currently have Sky Lynx hanging out on my Shattered Universe shelf cause I have no where else to put himI also have my G2 Laser Prime hanging out on my RiD shelf next to Scourge with Omega Prime hanging out behind them.

That's cool. I have my BTS-5 Minions in mouth my Classics, but only because I haven't gotten around to try and get my hands in the Rumble and Frenzy tanks. I have Omega Supreme and the E-Hobby guardian robot repaint sitting on a shelf with MP Rodimus, MP Grimlock, third party light up Kremzeek, and Knight Morpher Commander. This is mainly due to not having enough room.

    • 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
