Unicron: Megatron...Megatron....welcome Megatron.

Megatron: Who...who said that?

Unicron: I....am Unicron.

Megatron: Show yourself!

Unicron: I have summoned you here for a purpose.

Megatron: Nobody summons Megatron!

Unicron: Then it pleases me to be the first.

Megatron: STATE YOUR BUSINESS!

Unicron: This is my command. You are to destroy the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. It is the one thing - the ONLY thing - that can stand in my way.

Megatron: You have nothing to fear. I have already crushed Optimus Prime with my bare hands!

Unicron: You exaggerate.

Megatron: The point is he's dead! And the Matrix died with him!

Unicron: No. The point is YOU ARE A FOOL. The Matrix has been passed to their new leader - Ultra Magnus. Destroy it for me.

Megatron: Why should I? What's in it for me?!

Unicron: Your bargaining posture is highly dubious...but very well. I will

provide you with a new body and new troops to command!

Megatron: And?!

Unicron: AND NOTHING. You belong to me, now.

Megatron: I BELONG TO NOBODY!

Unicron: Perhaps I misjudged you. Proceed....on your way to oblivion. *Unicron begins torturing Megatron*

Megatron: NOOOO!!!! NO! I ACCEPT YOUR TERMS! I ACCEEEEEPT YOOOOOOUUURRR.....

Unicron: Excellent.

*reformating*

Unicron: Behold. Galvatron. And these shall be your minions.

*reformating of Insecticons, Thundercracker, and Skywarp*

Unicron: Scourge - the tracker. And his henchmen, the Sweeps.

Unicron: Cyclonus - the warrior. And his armada.

Unicron: And this shall your ship. Now.....go. Destroy the Autobot Matrix.

Galvatron: I will rip open Ultra Magnus and every other Autobot who stands in my way! To Cybertron!

Unicron: Destroy the Matrix...

Here's a battle scene I just set up - the Justice League vs. the G1 Decepticons. If there were ever a time to feel sorry for the `Cons . . .

The Seekers get sacked! Starscream puts up a last stand against Supergirl, while Wonder Woman grounds Acid Storm.

Targetmaster vs. arrows & power ring My money's on Green Arrow & Green Lantern.

The Flash has just disassembled Galvatron, and Ramjet, Ravage & Skywarp are afraid they're next!

Black Canary sings Crasher & Octane into submission!

Another angle. I was careful to choose `Cons that could look like they were holding their ears. :-)

Given the quality of the DC Infinite Heroes figures... my money would've been on the TFs.

 

What's wrong with them? They're good likenesses of the characters, decently posable for the size, sturdy. Now the Marvel line, there's some lousy figures. Half of those I own are floppy - the figures are hard to get stable, and could probably benefit from having fewer joints. The waists are especially bad - I can't get Spidey to stand straight to save his life. Add to that the excessive reuse of particular characters (how many Johnny Storm & Iron Man variants have they done?) and the higher price, and I know what line I'd rather go for.

Their posability is pretty damn poor. And the sculpts aren't great either... the extensive use of soft plastic leads their sculpts to be not very detailed. Plus, they hate accessories. Between that and their poor articulation, their posability is stupidly limited.

 

Plus, it's plagued by just terrible choices that kinda make me think they're just not trying like flat out wrong decoes and sculpts.

Definately a matter of taste, here, but I will say a few things. Why are accessories so important? For most of the DC fids I have accessories would be superfluous. Batman could use a batarang, and Wonder WOman might benefit from having her lasso but otherwise . . . What's Superman supposed to have, kryptonite?

 

And I love the character choices. Sure there have been a few repaints - at least two Batmans, for instance, but overall, the line has been a nice cross-section of the DC universe. We got a Pre-Crisis Supergirl, for crying out loud! I just wish there were a Robin in the line. And Kyle Rayner would be nice. And since they're some of the least expensive figures on the rack, I'm willing to overlook some flaws.

It limits their posability in my opinion. Especially when they've got such limited articulation... but I will give them credit for the character choices... and then take that credit away for screwing them up with terrible design choices.

 

Give us the question and then make him the wrong colors... without the trenchcoat... that makes sense.

I've passed on the Infinite Heroes for exactly those reasons. They just look cheap, period. Say what you want about the Marvel ones, but they look good on the shelf and can actually BE POSED. Getting them to stay standing is another story... :roll

 

But given the great job Mattel is doing with the Classics line, it's really weak that the Infinite Heroes are turning out like this.

    • 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
