THE STIG

Recommended Posts

I like Animated Blitzwing's character, but not his toy. The whole being unarmed in robot mode really ruins it for me... a Voyager without feasible weapon in robot mode just isn't acceptable. If only they made Blitz able to rotate his cannons like he does in the show... or gave him anything... and since he's a TFA fig, he doesn't have 5mm pegs in his hands so I can't even give him a spare G1 gun or anything.

 

I might still pick him up, as I do really like the character (and G1 Blitzwing). I even like the alt-modes... they give me a Metal Slug vibe. Though I do think the G1 Blitz had better-looking altmodes... then again, his robot mode was a brick.

 

Soundwave's my favorite character, and I love his Animated Figure. It may well be my favorite Soundwave figure to date. I am still hoping for Hasbro to import the Music Label Soundwave without electronics... doubtful, but they haven't said they wouldn't do it.

I wouldn't mind seeing them bring over Music Label Soundwave w/ the electronics.

Kinda ironic, Octane was just appeared for like, what? An episode or two? And got a Universe toy? While the most prominent triple-changer Blitzwing got no Universe treatment? :lol

 

Well, he WAS an awesome character with two great Alt Mode choices. I think the main reason why we don't have Classics Blitzwing yet is because his G1 transformation basically spelled out how to do a Classics Blitzwing, so he's not a challenge to the engineers the same way Octane and Astrotrain (considering that they changed his train mode) were.

Well to be honest lack of challenge to the engineers should be a reason for them to make him not for them not to make him, same with Springer how could they miss the mark so completely both times? His G1 version with more articulation would be great.

oh I think they could improve Blitz wing quite a lot since 1 I dont see many migs with tank turrets and the robot mode is rather flat. now add some 21st century engineering and sorted one awesome toy

The engineer's mind craves a challenge. Otherwise it gets stagnant. And even if what I've said isn't true, we can always hope that they're saving the best for last.

You know your talking about the same people who went from the intricate complicated movie line straight to Animated right!?!

Yes. And the Animated line is BEAUTIFULLY engineered, even if the plastic quality is lackluster. Simplicity is underrated. The true engineer can solve the most complex problem with a simple solution and he will find ORGASMIC joy in having done so.
