@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

Folks:

The thing I like best about these 3 is that their designs are so well-executed. Jazz was the first I found, and I was very impressed by his fine details and excellent head sculpt. I honestly can't think of a Legends class head that is so well-done. Many of them have had chunky details that are meant to suggest the features, but Jazz holds up well under very close scrutiny. Another great thing about Jazz is his car mode - it needs paint on the windows, sure, but it's very streamlined, with no protruding hinges or awkward bits.

Yup, Jazz's head is spot on. All he needs now is a Classic Pretender shell to snuggle up in, and he's golden. icon-hotrod.gif

The first round of pics made some of the upcoming Legends look a bit odd (Bee and Beachcomber in particular), but that latest set of pics has them looking excellent as well.

Ignore that pic. We've seen Brawn in package and he looks horrible, I'm sure Bumblebee and Beachcomber will look just as bad(or just not as good, you decide). icon-fire.gif

Countering that lack of paint, of course, is the fact that it's h-in' Brawn Brawn Brawn! Happy! The same goes for BC and BB. Super duper cool.

(A little missing paint and a little less unsharp mask on the photo can't detract from that. Heck, the alternative is that chrome-clawed lizard-hipped thing.)

Maybe I'll use a Sharpie to "paint" his wheels.

Yeah their absolutely perfect. I always loved the legends but these feel more like Micromasters 2.0 in terms of quality. I love re-enacting how Meg's had to fly out of the ark after Fort Max blew up the ships reactor core. Poor legends Starscream heh.

Anyways their excellent Megatron is very G2. Hound would be perfect if not for the wheels but thats a small niggle and Jazz is just awesome.

I had to buy extras of these. I painted Megatron's head gunmetal. I just need to see about painting Jazz's windows and hands maybe. I so feel like seeing about dremeling the fists though. Jazz and Hound need guns.

All Meg's needs though is some of that sith electricity. icon-trant.gif

Lets hope they repaint starscream into Skywarp and Thundercracker, that we get a Ricochet or Skstalker, a Detritus or Swindle and a hero Megatron repaint.

Oh and I agree about the pretender shell for Jazz. Just don't forget legends Screamer needs one too!

The Stascream was orignal from Cybertron Legends Thundercracker, and there's a Skywarp, but in a different Legend Starscream mode.

I plan to use Legends Prowl to try to put together a scale acurate(as close as possible) Animated vehicle set.

Yeah, cycles always look big for their class, it's kept 6 different Minicons from making into in The Alternate Terrain Divison, instead they stay in bot mode in The Engineering Division.

I ordered Jazz and Hound from HTS last week and got Jazz and Megatron instead. This'll be the first time I have to send something back to HTS. Irritating.

Jazz is pretty good, but he wants for paint apps and at least one more point of articulation: either head or waist.

Just picked Jazz, Hound and Megatron up today. Jazz is an excellent representation of Jazz for the size and with a surprising amount of articulation to boot. Pictures really don't do him justice, and he looks great in pictures as is! Hound is equally as impressive. Like the Animated Activators, I'm just really impressed at how well they pulled off this line. I just did not expect it to be like this.



The only thing I don't like about Megatron is that you can't remove the cannon and put it on his arm, but that's being real nitpicky, I know.

From the looks of it, these might be the best legends of the line. I got my TFCC zine and the new legends are a little.... I don't know the word. Wheelie and Rodimus's arms seem to be doors and it looks like it's just a flip and stick. Cosmos look.... kind of hard.


Geeze, I wish I could find these Legends soon, Perhaps K-Mart will restock with the new ones soon. I'm not going to Taget until the 5-packs come out.

Classics 2-pack Megatron would like to have a chat with you. Hero Megatron also has clamps on his arm for holding the rockets in place. If that's not cannon enough, turn them around and they look identical to a G1 fusion cannon. Titanium WWI Megatron has posts on his forearm for the cannon and shield to peg on together or seperately, although neither do so very well. The Alternator's Megatron that Kyde hoax'd us on also had a cannon on his arm.

I was just putting forth what I will admit is an unfair nitpick that I wanted something a little more G1 in a G2 homage figure. It's my fault for not putting in another sentence saying as much, although I did think it was already implied. But this is a TF board where people love to harp on such things. So I'll say it here: a fusion cannon on an arm *IS* Megatron, to me at least, and any Megatron figure that pulls that off makes that figure a *better* Megatron in my eyes.

All IMHO, of course. icon-hotrod.gif

Full argeement about any Megs being enhanced by an arm cannon.

The shame is, Hound's windshield shouldn't come off and does, and Megs' cannon should trasnsfer to his arm, and doesn't.
