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.

@  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).

I am already loving "Ratbat". Even on such tiny pics, he looks much better then that abysmal third-part thing that only had one leg...

I wonder what the fusion cannon transforms into, though. I hope these minicons will be available separately, too.

Unicron is... well, as expected, a Rock Lord. Not sure what the whole 'Chaos Armor' is for, unless that is meant for Nemesis Prime (who is bound to get a toy). Maybe in S2 they will again pull Unicron out of their tailpipe for a season ending?

And Swerve seems to be Breakdown, with a new head.

I have read on TFW2005 (gotten from someone who understands japanese) that the Jet Vehicon is not a new mold, it is the car mold retooled. So yeah, it'll be a flying car, not a plane. Maybe we can make Cybertronian Tracks from that.

Hmm, well, they fly so fast, I never noticed before. I always thought they had cockpits on their backs in robot mode,and hence I imagined they'd be more jet-like.

Those PCC's really do look a lot better with a more unified color scheme. Still doesn't really outweigh the general mehness issues though, especially at that price.

I love me some PCCs, but aside from Steamhammer and the Dinobots, I'm not really crazy about any of the combiners.

New clearer pics at TFormers

Looks like Ratbat will have clear wings, or, well... will be fully clear dark energon, erm, purple plastic. For a Minicon, he is also huge - has a larger wingspan than Megs himself. I am hoping to see a close-up soon. The gorilla/Lugnut looks similar to the one that came with the Voyager.

As for the flying Vehicon, how did Dead End say it? "A flying car? How droll..." icon-fire.gif

And Swerve is actually Breakdown, not a head-swap. Guess that'll be his Japanese name?

The redecos just look to be molded in different colors with possibly recolored stickers. They're definitely the same sticker designs, though.

I think when I get these in, the two groups of three that are intended to combine will be artifacts of the Thirteen, in my collection.

Nope they have different number designations in the line, Breakdown was listed a long time ago and Swerve just recently. And Swerve is an Autobot.

The new ones are all quite nice, but I hope that doesn't mean we won't get the remaining molds in some form.

You'd think we would - for example, the YouTube videos posted the other day were showing how to combine four of Ratchet's sword micron together, which is horrendously out of most kids price range if you'd have to buy four Ratchet's to obtain them.
