Beast Megatron (love the new purple, don't like the black face)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1432.html

Optimus Primal (nearly identical to the Hasbro one)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1431.html

Axalon (looks awesome)
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1430.html

Unicron (darker colors than Hasbro's)
http://blog-imgs-32....24005149b3e.jpg

Twincast, Stripes, and Nightstalker
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1428.html
Twincast does have the larger chest (and obviously the anime colored face) but it's been retool to remove the extra detailing. I LOVE, LOVE how Nighstalker's tape mode is nearly identical to Ravage - that is frickin' sweet!

Soundblaster, Enemy, and Wing Thing
http://higekumatoyto...entry-1427.html
Soundblaster has the newly colored face, modified stickers (all which look to be applied at the factory), and at least in this gallery is missing his dial. Enemy mimics the missing stripe stickers via paint apps (Encore Rumble & Frenzy were just bare).

Is anyone else's older release of Beast Megatron suffering from slightly-loose hip joints? The joints on mine have gotten loose enough that he slowly dips downwards in beast mode, only stopping once his T.rex head is inches from touching the ground. It's making it slightly tempting to get this absurdly-overpriced release. icon-wildride.gif

Axalon looks pretty good; it's amazing how the paint job helps make it look fairly different from Energon Sharkticon. icon-ironhide.gif

Axalon looks great. At that price, though, I'll have to contemplate it a bit.

The cassettes... nnnnnn so sad I can't get them.

Beast Megatron actually looks nice. But at that price it's a no go, edging toward a not ever.

SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE

Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!

Well, I'm in love with Megatron's darker purple and Axalon. Dammit.


And I never noticed until now that Cybertron Optimus' beast forearms/robot thighs are molded different from the BW release.

Yet they still couldn't make his effin' leg stickers black!

Man, Twincast and Soundblaster look great. The cassettes turned out perfectly too for the most part, I still love the crazy choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to get at least Twincast at some point, since the mold would be new for me.

The Vector Oracle Micron is actually for any Transformers toy (including Dark of the Moon), so there's no indication he's from the movie.

Since he's referred to as an Arms Micron, Prime would be the logical assumption.

No they're not. They're just swapped.

Since we have the bios for Soundblaster's tapes transcribed, I ran them through Google Translate. Am I correct in thinking Enemy's sonic power is to make his enemies too angry to think straight? And that Wingthing is explicitly a drone with a personality program?

Hydra, is there any chance you'll be getting the Vector Oracle and Firebolt Microns for sale? Please count me in if you are.

Ah I see now, still a nice way to change it to add a little difference.

I got my United figures today.

Axalon is awesome and Megatron is pretty cool (love the new purple). Unicron is nice, but Primal is a wash. I'll have to dig out my originals to see if there is anything different about Primal.

We're already seen that the surfboard combines the paint masks of the previous two versions and that the Maximal symbol is in Primal's butt instead of the outside.

They're balljoints, so they're just wearing down. Stick a dot of superglue on the ball and then put the leg back on and work it around some. Good as new.

They didn't change it. They've been backwards since the Cybertron (ie second) release of Primal.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
