Hardtop repaint should have been...


My Alt. Mode Sucks

IMO, hasbro either purposfully misses some great chances for homages or thier design team knows next to nothing about transformer characters

 

or they're just trying to get away from doing the same old stuff over and over again :redclethes

 

I think the design team knows exactly what they are doing. The homages in so many bots is proof of that. Now when it comes to marketing and story editors, that's a different story.

 

What I mean is, look at C-Snarl. When he was created it's obvious that the designer had the Idea to give him different homages to Silverbolt/Jetstorm. But if you watch him on the show or read his bio, you'd never know there's any connection. Then Characters like E-WingSaber. if you arent a fan of Japan only toys you wouldn't know who he was supposed to be. So, I would blame the design team. Hasbro has to do it on purpose.

 

however thats not the case here..

 

this is a NON-Show character..they cuold do whatever the ehll they want with it

Or they're probably trying to steer away from homages after nearly every last toy in Energon was an homage in some shape or form.

 

But they retooled a few crappy Armada toys into G1 homages for this line, so is another G1 homage gonna hurt? I mean this line is mostly new characters...

I think Hardtop repainted as Swindle was perfect. We already had a Beachcomber homage in Energon.

 

Personally, I'm loving the Hasbro exclusives (molds & repaints) this time around. They have established a perfect balance between new characters (Brushguard, Wreckloose, Shortround) with cool homages (Swindle, Swerve, Repugnus).

What are you talking about? Swindle's already a G1 homage. Swindle or Beachcomber doing too many or not enough homages doesn't matter since they both are/would be.
