I think Uni's head wants to find some schoolgirls.....

 

 

Ok bad joke on my part. :redface

 

 

Anyway, I looked over the pics again and I think He's not that bad, and now I have a reason to Kitbash that Unicron I found in a resale last year!

Just let people have their opinions. Disagree with their opinions if you want, but don't tell them they can't have them.

 

Absolutely. Let people have their own opinions and express. Do not argue with or insult people for their opinions.

 

"Make mine Hasbro".... if you like half assed attempts at maximized profits at lowest cost.

 

I feel the quote above was insulting people who's opinion is they prefer Hasbro products.

 

All this talk about car robots killing tfs in japan? where they that unpopular in japan? I mean I thought they were "relativly" popular here...I mean I like RID LOL :-D Can some one enlighten me about CR?

 

Car Robots was not a financial success for Takara. Due to that failure in 2000, Takara did not make another main line of TFs in 2001. Nor did it make one in 2002. Micron Legend was released in 2003 after joint development with Hasbro.

Actuaully Armada WAS made in 2002, it may not have reached Japan until 03' though. It aired in the U.S. sept. 02'. I did'nt however know that Car Robots were a failure over there.

People always seem to think Takara do poorly out of transformers and we always hear the crap that BTs dont sell well when the opposite is true.

I'm not so sure about the BTs.

 

According to Hirofumi Ichikawa, the guy who writes the BT background materials, Takara told him they wouldn't be using what he'd already submitted for Ginrai - and they haven't assigned him any additional BT work in months.  Points to BTs either being dead or on a long hiatus.

 

This leads me to beleive that the "not selling well" rumor might have had some truth to it, especially since Hasbro likely pays for a majority of the development costs and the the actual costs for production probably aren't too much different from what Hasbro spends to build the 100% plastic versions and then ship them overseas.

 

(I also have the feeling that if and when BT restarts they'll lose the diecast and go 100% plastic as well.)

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
