  1. You see that, game designers of Fall of Cybertron? THAT'S how you make a not-space shuttle.
  2. Oh yeah, but a lot of liberties were taken with the design of the smokestacks. No one's going to think that those are real. Remember that movie 1 voyager class Prime that was sold at Target? That's was appropriate for a movie toy, but imagine TFC making a G1 Prime and then doing that. We like our Third Party Companies because they make what we want and what Hasbro won't. When they start getting lazy too and trying to get us to accept what they make, then it's time to reconsider them.
  3. Imagine if TFC made their own G1, Voyager class Optimus Prime. Now, instead of giving him his iconic rifle, TFC decided to make guns out of his smokestacks. Why did TFC think that it was a good idea to give their Not-Aerialbots missiles and fuel pods as the weapons for the robot modes? They didn't do that with Hercules. Those guns weren't exactly like their G1 counterparts, but they worked and they combined into a satisfying weapon for Hercules.
  4. That looks really good. Since I've got the nicer FoC Grimlock that came with that TRU Bruticus & Grimlock set, I need to give him a friend. That Swoop will do nicely.
  5. I was thinking maybe there is a legal reason for this... I mean they are already in that gray area and if they release a new set with the new pieces it will shoot down my idea. But what if the reason is because the original set didn't really look like Superion? The jets pretty much did but Hasbro doesn't own those designs. Then they can release the kit later which is really a stand alone product. IDK, just an idea. Probably not. Hasbro certainly doesn't own the design of the jets that are used for the Aerialbots. TFC Hercules looked close enough to being G1 Devastator. In that case, the add-on kit wasn't really necessary, and I accept it as is. The guns even combined to form a gun that decent looking super-gun too. This one, on the other hand, is just TFC being greedy. They could've spared us the dopey looking missiles and fuel pods that come with the robots and given them the proper guns instead. The Superion gun and chest part could've, like it's G1 predecessor, come with Not-Silverbolt. These add-on parts make it a completely better looking Superion, unlike Hercules who didn't need an add-on kit to give a G1 vibe.
  6. The fact that these parts weren't made in the first place and included with the Uranos toys gives me a low opinion of TFC. I'm never buying any of their toys again.
  7. These are too ridiculous to pass up. They're like those lesser lines of transforming robots that ran alongside Transformers and GoBots during the '80s.
  8. That is impressive. I'm glad that I decided to continue collecting these.
  9. When something costs more than the most expensive Soul of Chogokin figure, that something costs too much. My Hot Toys Robocop and ED-209 together are going to cost as much as that Optimus Prime, and I'm getting the Robocop that comes with special chair.
  10. The add-on kit seems enough for me. This Onslaught is going to be too good for the rest of the limbs.
  11. I know that no one else cares about alt-modes, but that alt-mode is weak.
  12. Oh, I haven't to Big Lots in a while. I didn't know they had put out their Christmas toys.
  13. Even if they secured car licenses, Hasbro would still have to tie-in a release of MP cars with SDCC or some other nonsense. They'd also end up as a store exclusive. Hasbro can't just sell Masterpiece Transformers like regular Transformers.
  14. I got Grimlock from that Bruticus/Grimlock set at TRU. It's not as bad as I thought it was. I also don't think this add-on set is unnecessary. ArtTek's new head and gun for FoC Grimlock are more useful. I'm only getting the gun, though.
  15. MP Shockwave is $155, so I think $120 is realistic for Not- Max.
  16. While it does appear to be well designed, it can't be too big, since it has to form the head of G1 Fortress Maximus. $120 at most.
