@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

For now, this is announced as a Universal Studios Singapore exclusive.
He'll probably be available at Universal Studios Hollywood later though.

At NYCC Hasbro said there was going to be a mass release version too with different packaging and (likely) colors from the Universal Studios version.

He looks like a decent design, if not just a little generic. I'd like to see some kind of neat homage done with him. Sorry to the homage haters, but you've already got your new character version coming out right here. icon-fire.gif

Cool design, looking forward to seeing a finished copy.

I'm still curious why Singapore gets the ride first. I've no doubt the toy will be available in all Universal parks when we get the ride here. Hasbro said there would be a wide release of this? That surprises too given that it's a theme park ride exclusive.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Perhaps they were able to make room for it first. Or perhaps Universal Studios Singapore needed a boost.

It looks like he cribs a lot of robot design from Roadbuster. The split hood-pecs, the shoulder and hip wheels, the girder-legs... even has the kneepads and "wings" on the inside of the ankle.

I'd wager he even transforms much the same way as the Roadbuster deluxe figure. Not much originality there, IMO. It's not a terrible thing, as I really liked Roadbuster's design. Could have stood for it being less obvious though... nix the girders in the shins or something.

Yes, but they said the packaging would be different and like the figure too (coloration / deco). This was from the Hasbro reps at NYCC 2011.

That's what is selling him to me.

I have a general dislike for the Movie robot aesthetic, but his being basically a transforming Universal Studios Themepark ride sells me the toy just for the uniqueness.


-ZacWilliam, same factor that sold me the little Transforming toaster guy. When is it ever gonna happen again?

Well that's certainly a Transformer in the movie style. An actual paint job will probably make him look a little better. And clearer pictures.

If they do a mass release, I'll probably get him. He looks neat enough to be background filler.

The only thing I don't like about this guy is his name. Yeah, it makes sense regarding his role in the ride, but Evac already exists as a movieverse character and looks nothing like this. And yes, I'm aware that a 2-time repaint character that didn't appear in the films themselves is of secondary concern to coming up with a character that's the audience's link to the interactive movie ride, but still, some continuity would be appreciated. Like, he could have been "Getaway"/Breakaway.

Anyway, he's still looking pretty cool, and I totally agree with the Wreckers comparison; it's like he's the fourth one (Twin Twist?). Also, I think I've decided his alt mode is cybertronian. I could buy into it being a stealth mode of an Earth car, but the overall look is futuristic enough to be cybertronian.
