  1. I could go for a snazzy repaint of Cybertron Optimus Prime.
  2. 3rd party figures cost enough already. I don't even a greater mark-up to cover the special license fee that a company pays for.
  3. :agree That trailer literally looks like the robot mode that's simply folded up. It doesn't look like an actual trailer. I think the robot mode looks pretty good, so good in fact that it almost doesn't even need Classics Optimus Prime. They might as well have made a chest plate for it so that it could be used without Classics Prime. I do wish they made a new Hi-Q/Ginrai to go with the trailer.
  4. :tflaugh That was the stupidest of things related to Star Wars fandom. Now I understand the hipster cliche about "liking something before it was cool." I was a big Star Wars fan back in the '90s, literally before it was cool.
  5. I'm content with Masterpiece Transformers. I'm tired of the, almost G1 but not quite, CHUG toys. Now if they started making say, Prowl, Smokescreen and Bluestreak that look like the Fairlady Z, then that's something I'd buy.
  6. As far as mainstream Optimus Prime's go, ones attached to new media that is, it is something different. This Prime isn't a movie Prime, nor a cartoon/movie hybrid. It almost harkens back to the Optimus Prime from Transformers: Cybertron.
  7. :agree It always looks like someone misspelled "Laserbeak."
  8. I don't care if Michael Bay still directs, but please, please redesign the robots into something that looks better.
  9. Unless it's Encore, Masterpiece, or 3rd party, I'm done collecting new Transformers.

      I am with you but could probably pass on most 3rd party stuff

  10. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people that cares about alt-modes, so, as nice as the robot mode looks, as nice as the color scheme looks, I can't buy this Omega Supreme.
  11. Someone mashed-up Transformers Prime toys with Batman figures from the 1990s.
  12. What's a Laster hand? :tfevil Interesting. I see what you are talking about in the main pic, but then the picture after that seems to have those corrected. I want to see the alt mode now. The bot mode looks awesome, but that's only half of it. Hedgemon looked great in bot mode, but that Alt mode was horrible IMHO... This is pretty much the G1 toy, it's not trying to be anything else, so I'm sure the alt-mode will look great.
  13. If I didn't have a problem with this mold in the first place, I'd probably buy Patrol Specialist. The way that front bumper folds away for the robot mode is a little confusing. The hinge on my Not-Ratchet broke when I tried to transform it in a way that, to me, made sense, but it wasn't what the instructions showed.
  14. With the way they color comics today, I'm not surprised there's some confusing as to the coloring on MTMTE Chromedome.
  15. :tflaugh at the price of Artfire. See you at next year's holiday sale Artfire. :tflaugh Speaking of Artfire, E-hobby needs to get off its butt and start making the Encore reissue of G1 Artfire.
  16. Yeah, I don't understand the use of white. The white parts should be light gray.
  17. Ruination ... Which has a lot of people pissed! Lol Knowing what the combined mode looks like, that's a very suitable name.
  18. For a broken GDO Cliffjumper, Hasbro sent me a Generations Skullgrin. I donated Skullgrin, but I'm never going to bother with Hasbro again regarding broken toys. I'm just going to return it to the store and let them deal with it.

      there's never a guarantee they'll have your broken item in stock. I got lucky when i sent my Generations Ironhide in and got Ironhide back. But didn't fair so well with omne of my RID Trains. They sent me a different one back. I think i ended up taking the one they sent me to a store and just swapped it out. Back in the 90's, i sent an X-Force Shatterstar 2 to Toybixand got a Shatterstar 1.... that was fun.

      I know. I did expect something more current though, even the crappy RiD Bumblebee.

  19. i like the idea of G1 toys with articulation but i'll gladly also take reinterpretations of the G1 characters. it's fun! and keeps things interesting and far from boring. I guess that's true, as long as the final product looks good. For example, FansProject isn't using the exact G1 alt-modes for their Stunticons, but they still look good.
  20. So far, this one looks a lot cleaner than MMC's Not-Tantrum. It's basically the G1 toy with articulation, which is what I want, not some over-built interpretation of G1 characters. I do wish it came with a gun though.
  21. Ah, doing TFC's job for them. A 3rd party company doing for another 3rd party company that is doing the job of Hasbro.
