  1. ive had this on preorder from bbts for a while now..and you do realize that wasnt meant to be shockwave in the japanese armada show which was actually micron densetsu or whatever..shockwave showed up in the sequel to that..superlink as laserwave..the tank satellite thing..

     

    IMHO Below:

     

    In Japan for micron dentsu,Takara called a TF by the name Shockwave. in super-link micron shockwave got recolored white & green.

    since,it was called shockwave,I'd consider this a homage to 198o's shockwave.

     

    I'm fully aware of everything AEC,including the Takara versions. As I watched everything & bought all the toys.

     

    FWIW,Hasbro called the energon purple tank/satelite bot blastwave. takara didn't call their version shockwave.

     

    they called him shockblast. same as the alternator. it was also called shockblast. and hellscream is correct. G1 shockwave in japan is known as laserwave. which is why all japanese G1 shockwave homage toys are called laserwave.

  2. Thing is with these 3rd party companies, a lot of them are swarming to the same ideas. At some point, favor will fall to those who provide something more out of the box.

     

    All the g1 stuff is great, but I think people will still yearn at some point for upgrades to other lines as well. I mean, I would still be plenty interested in any real good upgrades for any Energon, Cybertron or even some Armada figures if they make sense. Why the hell not?

     

    It's a matter of whether or not people still have those figures to upgrade though. Plenty of people unloaded them or never got them. I don't think it's ever too late though. So if a new company comes along and bucks the g1 trend and decides to dedicate their business toward upgrading other than g1 stuff then I think they'll be welcomed by a big part of the fandom. So long as it's good quality of course.

     

    once again i agree with madman on on this one..

  3. Airachnid. 30 seconds in hand will make you wonder why you ever bothered.

     

    I love this airachnid toy,it's pure awesome in both modes. I can't wait till I see & buy this at my local stores.

     

    i agree with madman here..airachnid is terrible..the arms suck..the legs suck.. the helicopter mode sucks..it sucks pure and simple..took it back an hour after i bought it and got my fourth vehicon instead..

  4. i caved and bought the deluxe knock-out since its gonna be a while for the takara one to come out. i like him. his upper half actually has a rather unique transformation sequence. i can get over the colors. as he is going to be my first foray into customizing. got some paint pens and what not and as soon as i get up the balls im going to give it a go and paint him to be more show accurate.

  5. Lebanon Walmart has wave 2 and 3 deluxes. well all except Vehicon. and they have wave 2 voyagers. Picked up Bulkhead last night finally. they also have Ironhide and Dreadwing. and all the new BotShots. Got Lockdown and Jetfire.

  6. Got the entire first wave of Prime RID toys minus BB seeing as i have the FE..here are my thoughts:

     

    Cliffjumper- i like him...hands down..i know alot of people are complaining over him being inferior to the FE mold..i can agree with this....however to me that doesnt mean its necessarily a bad toy...yeah he kinda has gorilla arms...and im not down with the hammer thing...but its still a decent figure for the most part...the transformation is interesting.....the detail is nice and i love his head sculpt.....though he is my least favorite out of the first wave deluxes i still like him...he will do nicely seeing as i cant afford the FE... 2 1/2 out of 5

     

    Wheeljack- this guy is fucking great...love the car mode..love the bot mode...cant really think of any thing good to say that anyone hasnt already said about this guy....couldve used a bicep swivel...other than that..no real complaints with the guy...absolutely love his leg transformation...very creative and thought out....second favorite of the first wave..... 4 out of 5

     

    Voyager Prime- Meh....dont get me wrong...the robot mode is nice...its those clear blue forearms and those terrible weapons...total crap...his truck mode is really nice though.....nice articulation....nice detail...just the weapons kill it for me....gonna find another gun from somewhere for him and paint those forearms...then he'll be great...once again..cant afford the FE... 3 out of 5

     

    Voyager Megatron- My favorite of the two voyagers...i actually really like this version of this toy....great robot mode...i can live with the vehicle mode..with as out of the ordinary as it is...hasbro did a good job with what they had to work with on the vehicle mode....robot mode is fantastic....dont mind the "wings" made from the back kibble...can just take them off....cannon doesnt really bother me that much either to tell you the truth....with some paint and a little modding itll do just fine..... 4 1/2 out of five

     

    Soundwave- last but not least...my absolute favorite from the first wave..and incidentally the first one i bought thanks to a kind member of the forums here...thanks man......this figure is absolutely perfect in every way...period....predator drone mode....A+ Robot mode...A+ the inclussion of Ratbat (its Ratbat to me, get over it) A+..... i love this dude....amazing posability...amazing detail..fantastically accurate in both modes...what more could you ask for....it even exudes creepy as hell...just like in the show.... best of the line IMO....get him if none of the others.. 5 out of 5

    I agree about Voyager Prime's gun. It really is terrible. However, if you ever decide to get Arcee, the massive gun she comes with is a great substitute for it. It looks much better in Optimus's hands since it's literally as tall as her.

     

    thats actually what i was going to do...you read my mind sir...just gotta find an arcee..

  8. just got Prime RID Cliffjumper about an hour ago..i caved cause of the outrageous internet prices of the FE..and he was only 9.88 at walmart...i have to say..hes better than i thought he would be..im not really feeling the hammer...so i gave him the pistols from RTS Outback/Fallback/whatever hes called....hes actually a pretty decent figure if your like me and cant afford the FE.....these RID deluxes are starting to grow on me...cept that god awful BB....may go back to walmart tomorrow and get Wheeljack and Voyager Megs...if they still have them that is...if you see him get him...you wont be disappointed..

    I was considering getting him to display with my movie toys. Do you think he'd fit in?

     

    as a whole i dont really think the Prime toys fit the movie aestetic at all to tell you the truth...i mean if thats where you want to display him more power to you..i just dont think thats a good spot for him...then again i dont display my toys buy series...there just kinda put on the shelf where ever i feel like putting them

  10. i just recently (3 days ago) finally picked up DOTM Voyager Megatron on clearance at Walmart, and i actually really like the guy. Hes definitely got alot of charm in bot mode. And i love the truck mode. That said i had a lot of difficulty with the transformation the first time around. And the hinge that becomes the trailer articulation on his left leg snapped when i went to transform it...the transformation joint that ends up his hip on that side was super tight. No worries though, super glue to save the day. he still transforms just fine now. Just no trailer hitch in truck mode anymore..not that i care....all in all i say hes a decent voyager...nice bot mode, nice truck mode..i just wish he had the shotgun instead of the tank gun...oh well...hes great..
