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 - 11:03 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.

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

Each figure comes with bonus parts (like the last wave did for Rodimus) to make the Full Deathsaurus (I imagine it includes his Breast Force plates and/or weapons).

Y'know I really wish they'd do real G1 style toys like this. I mean compaired to modern toys the G1 guys were Quite simple and had a pretty small number of parts. I would think it'd be pretty cheep, compairitably, to churn out new actual Scramble City molds to be blindpacked.

That would be so cool...

It looks like you could still build a G1 style Defensor if you wanted to, since Skyfeather apparently becomes a shield, and Heatrock a chestplate.


Yes, that's the whole point of them combining with the larger Hot Spot. They right out and say that. You can do normal Gaia Guardian or God Gaurdian whose basically Defensor with sheild and armor.


-ZacWilliam, I want to see the new guys Dery-ized now.


Yes, I realize that they can combine with Hot Spot. My point was that the new guys are not required for that combination.

Yeah I do too, especially when things like their God Ginrai has more articulation than the original (and better proportions as well).

Neither Gaia Defensor nor God Defensor is the original Defensor, though. Gaia is just the six "limbs", God is all seven guys. There's no picture here of regular old Defensor.

God Defensor is all seven guys, but specifically he's Defensor holding Skyfeather in one hand and wearing Heatrock on his chest. So it's not unreasonable to think you can probably do a regular Defensor.

These are all gang-molded too, so that affects the character choice.

But, for a combiner, I'd prefer them like that. Makes them look more of a team, as opposed to 'those 5 random bots we found and stuck together'.

That's not necessarily true (if say Deathsaurus had a darker blue and a lighter blue with the lighter blue not being used on Optimus). He could use a lighter blue if he's the only one to, but based on the pictures of the combined Guardian yeah he's going to be darker.

How's the plastic and paint quality on these?

Man, this is the first new "real" transforming Deathsaurus toy that people will care about (RIDMegs need not apply) in 20 years. It's enough to make you think there could ever be a chance for a reissue or update.

No paint. Plastic is good considering their model kits (they're not fragile like Gundam kits can be). There is a little bit of give in the plastic like normal TF's tend to have.

What paint? icon-waspy.gif

They're cheap, snap together model kits that come with candy.

I haven't bought any of these, but if they're anything like the Super Sentai candy toys, they're at least molded from sturdy ABS plastic, so they won't be super fragile or anything.

They're molded in up to three basic colours, with a ton of stickers for detailing.

I have Ultra Magnus and the God Ginrai combiner. The plastic quality is better than I thought. It's obviously cheaper than a main-line transformer, but it's still good and solid. The stickers are holding surprisingly well, too, mostly. There's a couple I occasionally need to smooth down around the edges with a toothpick.

I have a suspicion you might be right, Thy, and that's just a mock up using a picture of the G1 toy (the pictures down the side are of the box are the previous wave of kits). He'll be more than just blue, though - they come molded in three colours (I'd guess dark blue, light blue and red?) - but these things do have an *insane* amount of stickers.
