Damnit Dog

Most Show accurate Transformers

Recommended Posts

With Beast wars we saw a new approach to toy making and cartoon design. The toys were designed and the elements from the toys were incorporated into the cartoon to make them as accurate as possible, but my question is which transformers toys over the entire existance of transformers is the most show accurate in both modes and transformation, THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE MP or 20th Ann PRIME, because he is as close as we are going to get.

 

So which ones do you think were dead on representations of the characters on TV?

 

This does not mean the most possible figure, or the best looking, just the best representation of the TV character.

 

Like G1 Hound is dead on, where as G1 Megatron looked little or nothing like his TV counterpart other then the basic design.

I'd say Energon. The semi-computer animation of the bots looks like they actually scanned the toys to make the computer models. However, I think the more stylized representations of series past looks better, the bulky Transformers like Ironhide look odd when running and moving around on Energon. I think if Energon had been animated in a previous style the robot modes would look more svelt.

if you want to go oldschool...Shockwave was dead on.

Ginrai was as well in powermasters

Shockwave was dead on, if not a little unproportionate with his long legs and big upper body. But for G1 I am going to have to give it to Omega Supreme, he was dead on in all his modes.

I would go with the Energon / Superlink toys. What I have noticed is that each version of a mold has it's own thing that makes it more show accurate than the other.

 

For example, Superlink Roadbuster is more show accurate in vehicle mode than Energon Ironhide, and Energon Ironhide is more show accurate in robot mode than Superlink Roadbuster.
