@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 01:23 AM)

Though frankly I prefer IDW Ratchet with a Marvel-style head rather than his current Prime-style head.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Like dual Fall of Cybertron-IDW G1 designs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:55 PM)

And it at least shows that they're allowed to repurpose designs from other universes.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Dark Cybertron was around when things showing up in toyline and comic together became a really major thing.

@  Waspinator : (28 July 2016 - 10:51 PM)

Given that that Starscream says "Armada Starscream" on his box, I assume the toy was meant to be Armada Starscream and was just re-purposed by IDW to be a body for their Starscream.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 July 2016 - 09:24 PM)

Hey, Bass X0. It's nice to see somene else paying attention to the distinctions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:44 PM)

Also, Albino Prime that isn't Magnus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:43 PM)

They made a toy that was IDW Starscream with an entirely Armada look.

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:53 PM)

Other than a change of gimmicks and physical appearance (i.e. Deluxe Galvatron), Hasbro generally keeps a familiar color scheme for the Generations toys. It may not always be perfect or completely accurate, but I can't think of a Generations toy that looks completely different in color scheme to how they should do. A quick l;ook around my room and I can't see anyone who is completely the wrong color scheme. I'd say the FoC Combaticons and Wreckers are the wrong colors, but they're not supposed to be the G1 characters so they get a pass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 05:45 PM)

The comics aren't beholden to previous G1 material, and the toyline doesn't have a strict need to follow the comics either so...

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:40 PM)

And yet the comics are not damned. This is G1 Sentinel Prime, not Animated or Movie Sentinel Prime and so he should look the part to how G1 Sentinel Prime has been portrayed so far. An Animated Sentinel Prime color scheme can come later. I don't recall how important the G1 legacy of Primes (Convoys) is in Japan or even if they have Nova Prime, Sentinel Prime, and previous Primes. So maybe Takara will paint him as Animated Sentinel just because its what Japanese fans are most familiar with.  Sentinel Prime didn't have to have been a pre-use of the Astrotrain mold, indeed why even choose G1 Sentinel Prime at all after how long neglecting him?

@  OrionPax44 : (28 July 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Same here unluckiness. I bought him mostly for the Fire Guts look of the Titan Master.

@  unluckiness : (28 July 2016 - 08:38 AM)

I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 12:34 PM)

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

Don't really see the appeal of add-ons for G1 toys since the base figure is still outdated. Or the Bludgeon ones, since there's already a tank/Pretender shell mold out there. Definitely going to get a couple of these Tomahawk kits just for the feet, in case the figure gets repainted into something I like.

And the Trailbreaker, eh. I definitely see Hasbro doing him in the next Classics line and he'll look better than this.

I like the Fort Max set for the simple reason my god damn Korean Spike went missing and it really pisses me the hug off.

So, if these guys aren't a million dollars, they'll be worth it to me.

He's colored to match the lighter gray on the toy, but the layout aside from the upper chest looks the same.

Was the Tomahawk ever recolored? Or was it just the black version?

Wow, I am surprised Headrobots is going into doing full robots since, well, it's more than just a head.

I wonder, could you use HA Whirl's lower legs or feet in a similar manner?

There was the Japanese Vortex release, with the alternate head. Not sure if the colors were different on the regular Japanese Tomahawk, if he was even released there.

...no real reason. I just think it'd look awesome.

To be fair, we've known this kit was in the works for a while now.

Trailbreaker would be awesome....if it wasn't trying so desperately to be a 1980s Hilux. That's not how Classics works. If the same transformation was done with a more modern (and generic-y) truck alt-mode, it'd be pretty win.

I have been waiting patiently for this upgrade... but man, it has become a huge disappointment.

The original plans were to give Wreckage/Bludgeon a tank turret too, and Whirl would have had a cool new head made for a Voyager toy - I was planning to use it for Energon Bulkhead. This new head - looks just sad, and Bludgeon is just the head and the katana.

Trailbreaker looks really nice, but much like the IGear minibots, looks too much like a more articulated G1 toy then a Classics toy. I love the Legends one and am sure that sooner or later Hasbro will give us a Deluxe - after all, we got Windcharger last year, and him and Trailbreaker are perhaps the two least known members of the 1984 cast.

The Japanese Tomahawk was mostly the same. His gray was darker than the Hasbro version IIRC.

You can see the short sword in Bludgeon's other hand, and what appears to be a scabbard on his left hip. I don't know if we're getting the full-blown turret, but it's definitely more than a head and one sword.

Also, are you sure that the Voyager head you're thinking of wasn't the ROTF Whirl upgrade? They did that as a limited-edition resin set nearly a year ago.

If Trailbreaker's price doesn't break me, I could see myself picking him up to fill the time until Hasbro makes one. I'm impatient.

I'd also pick up the Whirl set in a heartbeat, if I didn't already have a neat Whirl custom (which did break me).

I'm mildly interested in Trailbreaker. We got the little one, but it's not really satisfying, and there's been no signs to my knowledge of a continuing generations line at the moment, so....

Kinda interested in the Fortress/Cerebros set too. Will have to see price.

Trailbreaker looks OK. I'm all for G1, but I would actually have preferred a figure that uses his original character design as a springboard to something a little more creative. His vehicle mode is pretty slavish to the original too, which would actually make it seem a bit out of place amongst the Generations/Classics/etc. IMO, seeing as they are updates and reimaginings of original characters.

The Cerebros set is cool but BBTS has it on preorder for roughly $60, which is a little more than I really want to pay for 2 headmasters and a sword. At half that I might consider biting, but I'm just not emotionally invested enough in the character to shell out the full $60.

I'd be interested in this set as well, but $60 is FAR more than I'd be willing to pay.

You know what might be a cool set... release a recolor of Butcher minus the head that it colored to go with Botcon Clench. You obviously wouldn't want to replace that wonderful Clench head, but you could give him weapons.
