  1. I'm sorry but with Bay having any sort of influence in the franchise I don't feel that these movies are going to learn from Bumblebee. Maybe he wont have any influence, but if he's there..... I was not a fan of the bayverse. The lack of color in the character models, the sexual innuendos, not enough focus on the bots, it just didnt do it for me. bumblebee fixed most of that. mirage as a porche? it just doesnt feel right. Just makes me feel like someone is swimming in the bay sauce. can i get a movie based on the first 5 minutes of bumblebee? please? I'd watch that....more than once. thats the movie I think we want. All bots, familiar character art, kick ass action. throw in an 80's rock theme and BAM, 1986 brought to life. hell, can we just get 1986 remade into live action with maybe some updated story?
  2. well, at this rate transformers shelves will be full this season. Not of figures anyone wants. But full none the less. thank goodness for these and cyberverse crap changers for keeping those shelves warm this cold holiday season!
  3. i guarantee you we get to 20k at this point. I didnt think it was going to happen, but we dont know how many Japan orders havent been calculated and i really do not think HasTak is going to let this fail. Unicron was in the same boat. It looked like it wasnt going to succeed and then all of a sudden it did. And later there were left over orders that came up on BBTS for a stupid doubled price.
  4. i doubt it comes with a trailer too. but I know HasTak likes to keep things secret until fully revealed. So i think its still possible. That would be the only way $75 would be fair. Personally i wont get it for that price unless it did come with a trailer with a combined mode. I'm surprised a diaclone version hasnt already been annouced as much as they reuse this particular mold. but Hasbro is known for its missed opportunities.
  5. Wanted to make my Siege Megatron more G1. I designed a new barrel with a swivel hinge to be pegged into his back for the G1 look and can be pegged in the fusion canon in alt mode. I also wanted to go full G1 and make his silencer and stock. Obviously the stock cant be used like it did for a gun, so i took some liberties of updating it. In tank mode the silencer still attaches to the new barrel just like it does on the gun. This gives him a HUGE canon for tank mode. The stock breaks down into a radar/sensor turret that pegs into his hand for lack of another port. In robot mode the silencer and stock can combine to do the fusion canon turret thing like the MP and G1 toy. When not in this mode the stock and silencer can be broken down to weaponize Megatron in just about anyway you can imagine. Some configurations you can achieve are chainsaw single arm blade scissor arm blade dual wielded arm blades small guns/canons shoulder canons fusion canon additions many different canon modes I've shown off many different ways the stock and silencer can be broken down and combined. The possibilities are plentiful! And because you cant have Siege without blast effects, all of the parts feature a 5mm port or 3mm peg to attach blast effects giving you a reason to arm Megatron to the teeth. I think this captures the effect of what Siege was all about while giving Megatron back the parts he was missing from his G1 counterpart. I plan on doing a similar kit for Earthrise Megatron as well. Currently I do not have these files available but I may post them on cults 3D for a small price.
  6. not going to lie, i kinda like it. I might be in the minority here, but i like it. i really really hope they retool the trailer part so it looks different than magnus and give him a kick ass combined mode. Even if it was like a fake powermaster prime, a homage to something else or something completely original.
  7. yay more peg warmers! all target has is pegs of megatron and/or optimus. sigh.
  8. 86 Arcee? oh man, I surely hope thats not earthrise Arcee with a "premium" paint job.
  9. dubbing the Victory series would be awesome. oh how sweet it would be if they dubbed all 3 japanese series. I absolutely hate trying to watch the show while reading what is being said. Totally ruins the experience when you cant really watch the show because you are reading text.
  10. I hope the count doesn't include non-pulse orders. To be honest I'm surprised this is puttering along like it is. I expected this to be funded in a few days. It's big, its way cheaper than unicron and its a figure a lot of people have been clamoring about. Yet we haven't even made it to the funded goal and there is no way we are going to make the top tier. Hasbro needs to show some color photos, even if they are digitial renders, tell us what all tier unlocks are and do some friggin marketing! the fans first reveals for transformers are so damn terrible. the guy with the beard looks like he wants to take a nap rather than show off new content and the reveals are so lame compared to GI joe and Marvel legends. These guys really need to get off their asses and show this franchise some love and get the excitement going.
  11. what the french! shelf warmers indeed. its bad enough all figures i've seen in retail for this line are shelf warming, but another bumble bee to add to the peg. It's not like we arent still seeing the "gold bug" version still warming those pegs. If the R.E.D. figures aren't getting rave reviews why would they think a lesser articulated, smaller version would be any better? Ugh, this pisses me off to no end. It's bad enough that the crappy cyberverse line is warming the pegs, then the buzzworthy crap (not the 4 pack or cybertronian bee) but even more junk to make it look like they have stock. How about we cut every transformers line from retail except the main line (WFC) and the deluxe cyberverse figures (though some of those are still keeping those pegs cozy) and stop producing BS lines like buzzworthy to rerelease stuff. you want a kid friendly line? no. No one buys them. Or, how about putting them in the kiddie section where the rescue bots are. At least then the bare shelves of useful figures wouldn't look like its still got stock. I could kick a goat right now.
  12. i got this version of red alert but i am on the fence on how i feel about him. All other characters are getting their G1 cartoon color scheme. The Siege version also sported a more G1 scheme. Then they release this guy with a more toy deco. I wont say i dont like it, because I do. I like the red, it kinda plays off his name, but then there is the G1 fanboy in me that says "WTF Hasbro!". seriously a kick in the balls here. Now that isnt to say with a pin punch/soldiering iron i cant pop some pins and reconfigure to get a more G1 deco....i just shouldnt have to.
  13. totally lame. Love perceptor, i dig coronation starscream (even though i can 3d print the added stuff). but everything else was lame. Stuff that has been leaked and reviewed not even touched. If they really wanted to wow people they should have shown a dinobot or blaster. And those games. bleh. every transformer games i've played on mobile has been junk money grabbers. No one came for the games. reminded me of the blizzard disaster "don't you have phones". the chat spoke for itself. And what exactly was supposed to be "PRIME"? more robosen orders?
  14. that unicron head is bad ass. I would totally get that.....if it were less than $60. I dont think i could justify a $60 pen holder that looks like is only able to hold about 5 pens.
  15. seriously hope that there is some secret way to get mirage to have his shoulder canon. totally a mess up if they didnt
  16. thats my design! thats so cool someone reviewed it.
  17. its sad that they were doing a pretty good job with reveals last year, but man when everything gets leaked before they official reveal it, and they did those reveals with all the excitement and trying to build hype, it was just ruined cuz we already knew about it. It was all like Hasbro: look at this bumble bee!!!! its so exciting!! us: seen it Hasbro: here is grimlock!!! holy cow!! whos getting excited?!!! us: seen it, how about something that wasnt leaked.
  18. easy pass. had they done another welcoming committee member i'd a bought it. missed opportunity. I just dont feel that these sparkless figures are going to sell.
  19. ty. It was a fun custom to make.
  20. For this custom I chose to use WFC Chromia. Her design was just too damn good not to use. For bot mode I did the same mod I did for my Nightbird to remove the vehicle kibble. Doing so gives a few extra "unused" parts for a nice sleek and clean look. For the deco I decided to use the TR design because it just looked much better than the covenant. First up is bot mode. The hammer is a completely new design by me 3D printed to resemble that of the hammer from TR Solus. Its not an exact duplicate and there is a reason. Also designed by me are the added shoulder pads and the skirt crotch piece on the front also 3d printed. Now if you recall I mentioned that the kibble I removed were "unused". Well they can be, and are completely unnecessary but, where is the fun in that. The leg kibble actually becomes part of the hammer. I really liked the TF Prime hammer from the show and how big it was and almost used it but this was just too good. If you want a small hammer, don't use the parts. If you want a larger hammer, use the parts. It's almost like a super mode. Now what about the other parts? Well you cant be a blacksmith wielding a hammer and creating things with metal without an anvil! And so, I give you Solus' anvil to go along with her hammer. She uses this to forge her weapons for her fellow Primes to use in the battle with Unicron. And if you were wondering yes, she can still wear her bits on her back to take her anvil with her. For the skirt piece I originally made this as one piece but this posed a problem of when she bends at the knee. I really didn't want to have this big thing sticking out when she kneels so I broke it into 3 pieces and added hinge joints. Now when she bends, it does too. I've taken the alt mode of Chromia and turned her into a hover vehicle. Do you notice those hammer parts? This mode is pretty much completely unchanged from the original vehicle mode except I rotated the waist, opened the back half and added the hammer bits. Because I incorporated 5mm ports, they are blast effect compatible. The hammer halves have become the front turbines and because they are on 5mm ports they can swivel for directional adjustments while in flight. The handle and pommel become a rear thruster that looks like tubing for exhaust. Looking at the underside view the skirt nicely covers the legs and you can see the blast effect in the front turbine as well as the new turbines I modeled to replace the rear wheels. And of course a group shot of the Primes I've completed thus far.
