IDW G1 has been a victim of it's own success.

@  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.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

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

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

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

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)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  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).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

The Bot Shots look promising, especially the Optimus with trailer.
The new Voyager Optimus Prime looks good too.
Legion Breakdown, Soundwave, Evac and Mirage!
Deluxe Robots in Disguise Arcee, Knockout, Vehicon, Hot Shot, and Ratchet!

Sealed case of 8 including:
TRA LEGION BUMBLEBEE 2
TRA LEGION VEHICON 1
TRA LEGION ARCEE 1
TRA LEGION BREAKDOWN 1
TRA LEGION EVAC 1
TRA LEGION SOUNDWAVE 1
TRA LEGION MIRAGE 1

Sadly Breakdown is a legion not a Command class. But still good he's getting at least one figure somewhere. Unless he ends up being larger like Legion Crowbar does.

Edited by Dr Syn, 19 January 2012 - 07:51 AM.

Legends class figure when? REAL SOON!!

I think they've said that they're going to call him that from now on so he doesn't have to be named "Rodimus" pre-Primedom.

That would make sense. I'm also getting really curious of all this.

Next month is Season 2 premiere and Toy Fair so the mists will clear eventually.

Voyager Optimus doesn't look all that different to me. Just some new weapons and a sword that probably won't bend in half if you breathe on it.

Thoughts:

Look at Bot Shots BBs chest. Looks like theree's some kinda game built into them. I wonder if that square with the stats is a rub sign? Hmm... Not sure what to think of them... Like the size and engineering a lot, not as sure about the superdeformedness...

Mirage and Hot Shot. I HOPE Mirage is a G1-inspired Legend to add to those ranks. I have a feeling it'll possibly be based on the yet unmade Movie character though. Bleh to that. I want more non-show G1 based Cyberverse. Hot Shot is a potentially interesting listing... Lets all just stare at Walky until they reveal a pic and then judge who it is by his reaction. icon-arcee.gif


-ZacWilliam, kinda liking the Voyager Prime and wondering if it might be just G1y enough to go with my classics figures. Will wait and see in person...

Yeah, like I said in the other thread, I'm pretty sure these are meant to compete with Bakugan.

I'm surprisingly interested in the ones with trailers. I thought I was going to be able to buy one or tow of these as novelty pieces, but I'll be damned if the trailer ones don't make me want to buy all of them. To make a mini-sized fleet of vehicles.

Well, I rather hope the RiD release of Arcee and the Vehicon are pretty much the same as their First Edition release, so other countries can get a crack at them without importing, as it looks like they're re-releasing or re-colouring everything else from the FE wave, short of the earlier Cliffjumer mold...

I think the size may decide me. If they're really cute and really super tiny I think I may want a bunch. The larger they are the less interested I am since I have better figures at the larger sizes.


-ZacWilliam, I will admit that trailer is super neat looking. I wish the Cyberverse figures had a trailer that looked that cool.

Bot Shots look fun in that "if nothing else is coming out this month and I have a few bucks burning a hole in my pocket" kind of way.

I'm kind of curious whether the same non-show characters will show up in both Cyberverse and the main line, or if they'll be independent of each other. (I guess judging by the DOTM lines, it's the latter?)

I'm liking this Optimus a lot more than the First Edition mold. More solid, more technogreeblie stuff going on with the chest windows, and the airfoil actually transforms into his shoulders like it's meant to.

I've now cancelled my preorder for the First Edition voyagers, which means I have no idea how I'm going to find Bulkhead. Surely he'll get some kind of real release.

Looks like he's going to have some light-based gimmik like with that voyager Starscream we saw and the Cyberverse Commanders.

Personally the new voyager Prime looks a bit too.. naked and not show accurate enough for my tastes.
I might get him eventually, but it will depend on how many Megatrons they make.
