  1. The Velocitron Hot Rod will be a shelf warmer. He’s a minor repaint of SS86 with a couple less accessories, but at a Voyager price point. Forget it, I got SS86 and that’s all I needed. Would have considered it if it was the decepticon, shattered glass or “crystal” version, but he is basically the exactly the same as previous release.

  4. I think that they mislabel Ironhide in one of the display images... Or leaked a planned repaint?

  5. IMO giving him his Target Master would have been a good idea. At least more people would probably pick him up

  6. There are videos for Blanker, Skullgrin and Crankcase, too: I'm wondering now if the final production version of Skullgrin has a pink or purple chest...

  7. I was trying to see if there was any clues in the crowd. There aren't any really just some interesting stuff. The RID Decepticons are using their "G1" forms and not their UW forms. Chromia, Arcee and Nightbird are using their Legends/T30 forms and not their newer WFC forms. Parasite is also there but nobody else from his boxset. Yes Parasite and not Skywasp as that's the original name and most importantly, that's the Parasite head on it. Gravedigger aka United EX Buildmaster is also there in between Devastator's legs with Parasite. So there's eight Constructicons total when you also count Road Hauler. Road Pig is there which is nice to see. The Stunticons are there but no Breakdown, not that Takara was going to reveal him here. There's a really nice bit of continuity shown here in that the Titans Return Chaos on Velocitron set is here despite Takara not releasing it. Nautica, Quickswitch, Laser Prime using his Legacy form instead of his TR form and even Fastlane using his deco from that set instead of his Takara Legends deco. I love that Cybertron Metroplex's foot and ankle is just there. Just one. It doesn't even look possible to have the other leg anywhere either. You'd see the foot if it were on the other side of Motormaster and it can't go the other way either as it would be on the barricade or the racetrack at that point. I have since found Cosmos and Clampdown. I picked up two Clampdown actually so that I could swap the white hinges onto Red Alert as I said I was going to. I hate working with that mold though, there's no easy/good way to get to the other side of the pin for the shoulders like there was on the Siege version. So you have to leave the miscolored inner shoulder joint by popping them off at the shoulder swivel where it connected to the transformation hinge. I managed to get one of Sideswipe's inner shoulder pins out when I tried but couldn't get the other so I had to do the other way. I couldn't get any from Red Alert or Clampdown to move so again, I went the other way. I just really hate pins that can't be extracted once they're inserted. Reflector has a couple of those as well. I now know after messing with him from looking at that "custom" that was shown a while back about using one as a replacement for Cybertron Drillbit for Metroplex. I had a Reflector 3 pack that had some issues and BBTS made me destroy them before sending me a replacement. So I still had the destroyed figures lying around and decided to see what I could do with them to make my own version of Drillbit. While taking them apart to fix them I found out that the two pins in the torso can't be taken out without breaking some pieces internally. It's not like the figure doesn't hold together without those pins so I went and broke all the insides of the torsos taking them apart. Now I have them ready to paint if I ever get around to it. I think I fixed them enough to get two good figures out of the three. There's one that I broke in such a way that can't be fixed with just some glue. Oh well, they're free figures anyway.

  8. So they used the artwork of Legacy Core class Hot Rod for his packaging...

  9. Scraplets? And female Skywarp? And Optimus wielding a wrench (that transforms into his battle axe)?

  10. This honestly just looks like Hasbro is grasping for straws here. We've already gotten 3 Hot Rods within 2 years (Kingdom Rodimus Prime, Kingdom Hot Rod, and SS Hot Rod). I would rater have a Deception repaint of him, like they did with Mirage into Crasher.

  11. I was thinking that Scraphook might be a constructicon. Hasbro could go the route of third-party companies like Magic Square and Newage and release the constructicons in the form of three two-packs. "Scraphook" could be a way of saying "Scrapper and Hook." Also, a two-pack might be the reason for it being the only listing without a size class.

  12. Looks more like a Powermaster version of Magna Convoy/Prime (the core robot of Delta Magnus) to me. Where is his armor?

  13. Just in are images of the APC TOYS Trailer accessory for their APC-001 Attack Prime Optimus Prime. The trailer appeared in the show just a few times, but the streamlined looking trailer was never produced for retail. APC is making this as a 74.2mm x 118mm x 363.7mm sized add-on designed to go with their Japan Version, but should work fine with any of the molds. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now

  14. Holy crap, finally, pictures of the interior! Pre-Order made! According to the measurements it's 2.92" Wide X 4.65" Tall X 14.32" Long, This actually seems to work with either the Siege Prime or the Earthrise Prime, as it has both an Earth-look to it, but also, the back and sides look Cybertronian enough to be a good weaponized trailer. Particularly due to the style of the interior as well. Although, I would prefer to have a Combat Deck as well, and maybe a Roller, I'm sure that we could either lift those from the Earthrise trailer and the Centurion Drone Weapons pack and 3D Print some kind of adapter for everything to work. Man, APC Toys is knockin' out of the park. BaCon are you going to get one too?

  15. Well I guess that's why Crasher isn't using the Dragstrip mold. But at least I was right that it would look good as Crasher. I guess I know what I'll be doing when I get these. Head swap and some repainting. But I was almost right about what the supposed "Shadow Striker" was going to be. I jokingly said that it was going to be based on RotF Shadow Striker which was just a black with red Universe legends class Wheelie. Well damn, I might be doing this one too. So that's three Shadowstrip and two Crasher I might be picking up. It all depends on if I have the money for that many extras I guess as this will also need an extra Wrecker Leadfoot too but I want more Masterdominus anyway though. I might have to cut that Shadow Striker though as it's the least accurate and there's a perfectly mediocre Wheelie out now to use. Who am I kidding though, I never get around to doing any customs anymore anyway unless they're just parts swaps. I have three easy ones to do which only require the heads to be repainted to make the new characters and I haven't even done that yet. I think I'm just mad that almost all the customs I did in Siege have since been done officially. Tigertrack, Clamp Down, Deep Cover, Delta Magnus, black Ironhide...twice. From Shadowstrip: Shadowstrip, Crasher, Shadow Striker. From Crasher: Crasher, Slicks. From Leadfoot: Leadfoot, Slapdash, Slicks.

  16. Yo TFormers! Check this out! I made a DIY Minicon for my Legacy Cybertron Metroplex. Really easy to do if you have the parts. The ingredients are: 1x Refraktor, 4x Ironhide tires, 2x Jetfire missiles, and 1x Paleotrex Tail (required for the forearm drill mode). The best part: he can convert into all 4 modes! Check out the pics. Isn't that awesome?! Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they retooled Refraktor for this. The way he connects to the crane claw almost makes me feel like he was meant for this! Very very very happy with this 5-min fan mode

  19. No, Hasbro is not releasing a remake of the Macross VF-1S Super Valkyrie or G1 Jetfire. However, this is too close to home not share the independent release by UK toys maker KitzConcept. They have been releasing scaled down 19 cm / 7.5 inch versions of the whole Macross squad.KitzConcept has posted this listing for the Macross Robotech VF-1A God of Flame with Fast Pack Armour officially Harmony GOLD licensed homage to the original Takatoku figure with LED lights and other special features.

  21. I hope they don't forget the Tensig Base Optimus Prime. Although, I don't really like these sets anymore. I don't like the hammer or ax as they're too small due to being designed to fit inside of GUOP's water cannons. I don't use them on any of my figures now. As for the leg extensions, I really only like them for GUOP but use them with both versions of UM as well. I use them in conjunction with some 3D printed thigh extenders as well. I modded my Siege UM and GUOP so that they still transform normally even with them. I cut out the plastic behind the hips so that they now shift back to the bumper (kind of like Titans Return Optimus Prime/Octane) to fill in that gap behind the front wheels. This allows the thigh extenders to fill that spot instead of the wheels from the DNA kits. There's the perfect amount of room to allow for two different kinds of 3D printed thighs (they're all made the same size) to fit in that spot while leaving the rest of the legs in the normal spots for transformation. Meaning that the trailer still connects to the cab of the trucks like normal instead of pushing it back. The mod can't be used with Kingdom Ultra Magnus though as his front bumper sits differently on the truck cab and doesn't allow for the mod to work right. It's a moot point though as the trailer for Kingdom UM's trailer doesn't connect to the truck cab anyway. So it sticks out further back to look more like how a normal trailer would sit. The height extension granted by the 3D printed thighs and by the DNA kit is the same. So it doesn't matter which one I use unless I want double height like I do with my GUOP to make him very leggy like the original mold. Regardless, at least this is one of their better kits and was actually decently priced. I still think it's a shame that the Magnus kits never came with fillers for the shoulder pylons. I mean it cost the same as the GUOP kit and that one came with the pieces for the water cannons to fill them and store the weapons.

  22. As cool as the artwork is, I'm not really feeling the Transformers "Evergreen" designs here. Mostly used in the Transformers "Authentics Bravo" figures. I would be 100% sold if it was Siege, Earthrise, or Kingdom artwork. That makes me wonder, did we ever get a Transformers Calendar with Siege Artwork in 2020 or 2021?

  23. Man that looks so good. I'm hoping I can pick up the Pulsecon exclusive Orion. But if I have to buy on the aftermarket, I might wait to pick this up instead.

  25. I noticed that too. Looks like a place you put the Nanofigs on. I am curious to see how this scales with the G1 Cab reissue. Though the trailer looks a bit short to my eyes. Not sure if the cap comes off either. It looks to be permanently attached.

  26. ‎Alan Alexander‎ of Transformers Collectors Group has shared something very interesting. It appears somewhere along the production line, the mass market Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime got mixed up with the Alternate Universe Optimus Prime damaged head mold. Even though it is fully painted in the G1 colors, it appears to be the same mold as the Alternate Universe with bent and damaged antennas. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
