Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

@  unluckiness : (29 May 2016 - 04:04 AM)

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

Pass. Might have been tempted with a retooled head on Goldbug, but no. Wouldn't be tempted at all with Dai Atlas unless he could be repurposed, as the grey version made a nice Classics Camshaft.

The colors rock, give them the new heads as stated in the descriptions and call it a day! icon-silverbolt.gif

I'm glad that Goldbug has plenty of blue on him and Dai Atlas has some orange highlights.

Yeah, these shots are clearly photoshops. You think they would have waited to show off the new heads though.

Even then, I'll pass: I'm spending enough money on TFs already.

How come, because of the colors or because you presume he has Convoy's head still (despite the listing)?

The colors are damn pretty. I love that shade of blue.

Unfortunately, the breakdown of the colors does everything it can to prevent the toy from actually looking like Dia Atlas. Way too much blue, not enough orange, and definitely not enough white. (It would be impossible to put the white in the correct position, because most of it was on his wings. But he still desperately needs more white somewhere.)

I read it, I just figured the pictures were more likely to be the true product vs. some old choppy translated blurb.

if these come out and DO have appropriate heads I'll reconsider, but these pics are not doing the toys any favors for me.


ZacWilliam, if one of your biggest selling points is "new head" releasing pics that seem to show them not having new heads isn't a very good strategy. At least include sketches or something...

Perhaps these images weren't meant for mass release.

It's probably only a matter of time before we see photos with the actual head sculpts. It's not the first time this has happened (seeing images without the final head sculpts) with TakaraTomy product.

You just went full *scrubbed*. You never go full *scrubbed*! icon-waspy.gif

And while I don't have anything against the Convoy mold, this paint scheme does a terrible job of evoking Dai Atlus. A new head isn't going to magically correct that. Who were the other ones said to come out? Banzai-tron?
