Which Errol? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Errol (her name is Turtle b/c we couldn't decide on anything)

@  BlackMax : (03 May 2016 - 04:21 PM)

WHat, is her name Errol or something?

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

She shoots fire from her eyes, and lightning from her arse!

@  MEDdMI : (03 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

just wait till you see what comes out of her backside

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 12:01 PM)

OW HOLY SHIT SHE BREATHES FIRE OW OW OW

I want one! I can't afford it, but I want one.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:22 AM)

I don't have a firstborn. Your bid is invalid.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:20 AM)

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@  Telly : (30 April 2016 - 09:25 PM)

i went off when i saw unicron

@  Patchouli Kn... : (30 April 2016 - 09:04 PM)

Not sure on the magazine, sorry. Believe the images for the exclusives are new though, seem to be the final versions as opposed to previous mockups.

Whoa, he's actually an evil Prime for once! I do believe those are Con symbols on Prime. He and Megs look sweet; always have had a thing for these types of repaints.

Well golly, TakaraTomy actually made a black Optimus redeco that's a Decepticon! Both him and Megatron really look great!

Comparison of previous mockup photos to the actual toy/new publicity photos.

Before:
cybertron_opvsmeg.jpg

After:
21kjq84_crop.jpg

Definitely an improvement in my opinion, and glad to see Optimus as a Decepticon (as much as I hate how a lot of users on another board always refer to a black Optimus as Nemesis Prime/Scourge, it's nice to see one actually be one). I think these two look great.

Apparently I'm the only one talking about these but Megatron reminds me a lot of his new form in the IDW comics, which is very cool!

Would have been kinda interesting to see a heroic "White Megatron" to counter Black Convoy. Still, that Megs is pretty nice looking.


ZacWilliam, yes White Megatron would take some creative decking to look different enough...

Probably wouldn't matter too much to TakaraTomy, considering their United Cybertronian Megatron is a very dark gray and not very light gray like Hasbro's.

I'm kinda not interested in the Black Prime now, before I liked him becuase he looked like pre-earth mode of the SDCC version, which I have. Now he's just the standard all black which is boring in comparison.

I think the teal highlights and red windows are much more exciting looking than the very dark version we saw before (as everything was all kind of the same level - the dark teal and the black). Though he did look like a Cybertron version of Universe Nemesis Prime. I prefer the stark contrast of the teal and red against the black.

I have to say I feel the same way. As cool as it would have been to get a pre-Earth SDCC Nemesis Prime...That color scheme just looks so bland on this mold.

So adding the teal and red and contrasting those and the silver against pure black really does make for a more visually interesting color scheme. Even if it's just more of the same Black Convoy/Convoy Black Vers. concept.

Ah teal, such an evil color..apparently.
I wonder who decided that and why. I know the the first toy/character to us it was Black Lio Convoy.

Megatron reminds me of the animated Shadow Blade version.

Red too, but only as a highlight.

Even the original lucky draw Black Lio Convoy used gold instead of teal, it was the TRU exclusive one that used teal first.

I think it was Car Robots Black Convoy that really solidified it (since it wasn't used on the Black reissue Convoy, Black Fire Convoy, or Black Big Convoy).

But it's used on plenty of the heroic Black Convoys/Optimus too (Henkei, Animated, Masterpiece).

Well that just saved me a couple of hundred bucks, I was all over the mock ups, but those new pics don't do it for me,
I was particularly excited for the megs mock up, I hadn't opened my United WFC Megs because of it, I may have to re-think that policy now icon-blitz.gif

Oh well At least I can better justify getting a Stepper since these two are an easy pass.

Not when it's complimented with a nice bright silver, bright teal, and vibrant red. The original mockup was just kind of ho-hum dark repaint. This has some pop to it! icon-hotrod.gif
