Slamdance


Hearse

Recommended Posts

I was wondering...just some opinions...

 

Would Slamdance be considered a Duocon? (Or Duobot, since he's a Autobot)

Think about it- two separate vehicle modes, one combined robot mode... I know Grandslam/Raindance had tape modes too, but still....

 

Any thoughts?

He's considered a gestault, where seperate sentient beings combine together to form a new optimal whole...

 

a Duocon (or bot) is a bot that has two vehicle modes that combine into one robot, but share a mind/personality, they're don't become seperate minds/personalities when split.

Sky Lynk, however, IS, technically, a Duobot/con!

I dunno. They still have their individual modes. Duocons could only had one mode without combining. Skylinx' individual parts can turn into a shuttle/bird and a lion/crate. Once again, I'd consider them to be combiners.

Well, that would make the E-combienrs some sort of duocon, in this case a penta-con since the combiner was a single entity that could split in 5 parts, contrary to the original gestalts.

No, Energon combiners aren't like Duocons either. Duocons' separate halves only have one mode. Flywheels can only turn into a jet and a tank when separate from each other. The pieces don't have individual robot modes. Combiners always have either an animal or a robot mode AND some sort of alt mode.

    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
