  1. I would say it seems to have a more Samurai feel than "Chinese warrior" feel to the design. How that will actually translate into a workable transformation into a car I don';t know. We'll see.
  2. I understand where your comiong from, but remember, Rescuebots wasn't targeted for the eight-year orl demographic. It was targeting the four to five year old range. The new show that Habro is making, according to this article is also targeting that younger age range as well as the eight year olds. They're trying to widen the demographic.
  3. I see I'm not the only one to think Beast Hunters Starscream makes a perfect Slipstream. Though, for mine, I simply modified the original head.
  4. One can only dream. Until then, I'll stick to my project of making them all. I still need a good base figure for Solus Prime (something other than Arcee)
  5. Prima's color scheme is pretty much all sliver/white, which if done right, looks really sharp., but, yeah, it is a bit monochromatic. Still, it's better than his color scheme in the old Marvel comics (orange and blue) Breaking up the silver with some gunmetal also helps.
  6. I don't know about the blue, but for silver, I'd use Tamiya Color X-11 Chrome Silver acrylic.
  7. Here's that digibash I promised: and here's one using the Ultimate Class version, just for S&Gs
  8. That's why I suggested using him for Prima instead. It's a much closer design. The only mold I know of that's even remotely like Nova Prime is the Energon Rodimus/Checkpoint mold; Checkpoint being the best choice since he's molded in white. Of course, using either of them (assuming you can find one anymore), will require the construction of a trailer/Apex Armor for it to give him his "wings". I'm going to try a Digibash of the BH Optimus as Prima to really see how he'd look.
  9. Here are those pictures of Prima and Nova Prime I told you about over at Youtube: Prima Nova Prime
  10. Knowing the day, this is likely an April Fool's joke, but even if it isn't, it's funny as all get out. It would be an interesting choice of villain, and Patrick Stewart is great in anything he does.
  11. Yeah, acrylic paint thinner (it's alcohol based). Tamiya Color is a good choice. You can also use rubbing alcohol. It takes some time though. I also recommend using an old toothbrush along with it.
  12. Great review. Lazerback looks more like a Gargoyl to me than a dragon, but he is a sweet looking character with an awesome beast mode regardless of what you call it. I agree a "Flamefeather" repaint would look cool. One thing about digigrade legs though in general, the so-called "reverse knees" of digigrade legs are not knees at all. They are the ankles. Creatures with digigrade legs walk on their toes, not their entire foot.
  13. This is a great review, and I love the "Boombox" mode. The only thing I'd do differently with it though, is I'd rotate the wheels on the legs to their "robot mode" position, or at least half-way there, to center them more vertically, fill in the gaps, and make them look more like speakers.
  14. That's just the claw weapon that attaches to the end of her tail in dragon mode. It's not a part of her arm.
  15. Great review. I do hope he gets released here in the US by Hasbro. As for the Arms Micron figure, his name is S.2 It's essentially Smokescreen's initials "SS". This seems to be the standard naming procedure for all of the Autobot microns that come with each character. As for his head, it reminds me of Devcon from the G1 Season 2 episode, The Gambler.
