    Urrgh. Painted windows. Shame, because Cliffjumper's grey limbs look better but the entire toy looks far cheaper, nastier and crappier with a painted window.

    Cool concepts and missed opportunities

    I remain even more baffled we never got a Titan Master Straxus. He's literally a character who spent half his appearances as a disembodied head!

    Cool concepts and missed opportunities

    I really liked the initial classics approach of not having any faction symbols visible, save for the rub sign, in alt mode. Really sold the "robots in disguise" thing. It's a shame it was dropped so quickly. I kind of like the idea of the Maximals and Predacons coming about as a result of the...

    IDW to Lose the Transformers License?

    Marvel don't really do licensed books any more (outside of "licensed" meaning "other Disney owned properties"), so I'd put the odds of that at zero.

    IDW to Lose the Transformers License?

    Ultimately Rich does have good sources. He was the first one to break the mess with Hasbro US pulling DW's licence outside the US. Given IDW's financial issues of late I wouldn't be shocked if this was true. But there's not that many other avenues for licensed books nowadays. Dark Horse seem in...

    You couldn't fold his trailer flat because the hinges were effectively too wide to let that happen.

    It's two parts for the helmet side to side, with a face glued on (which is why the face and eyes look a little better). The thing is it's not just misaligned - cutting it in half and re-gluing wouldn't help much. The parts just fundamentally don't match up all the way around. It's like they did...

    Jackpot arrived today from Hasbro Pulse. He's pretty bad! The Autobot logo isn't tampoed right so it's really dark, and the head is just... a total mess. Tolerances feel pretty poor compared to Jazz too.

    Transformers: The Basics

    That's not wrong tbh. I am still absolutely baffled about how Hasbro ended up in a situation where that scene was in a film made of their IP designed for kids. It completely boggles the mind. They must have script approval, surely? Why didn't they immediately nix it?

    Reformatted Mentis-A.K.A. RUNG!!!!

    He's very nice looking but a bit over reliant on swapping out his hands which is unfortunate.

    Not really, it's literally a retool of MP Bumblebee (as in the limbs are the same tooling), it doesn't fit the SS86 parts count limits at all. Slag is nice, but he's pretty obviously not an MP.

    Studio Series 2022 First Look

    All of these repainted as new characters would be pretty neat, shame it's unlikely to happen for on-screen movie designs. I saw a digibash of Brawn as Doomguy that looked really good. I wonder if a third party will make a cockpit that folds out from the back for Soundwave's alt mode. It'd look...

    Repaint the Ratchet blue and he'd kind of make a decent Fusion.

    I will never understand Hasbro's marketing strategy of not showing Blaster but showing a specialist retailer repaint.

    Which 5 beast wars character do you think should get new toys?

    Given Wolfang was intended to be a show character, and his toy hasn't aged very well, I'd say he'd be a good pick.

    Hasbro PulseCon 2021 October 22nd & October 23rd

    FWIW Ravage was offered directly to specialist retailers outside the US (even in the UK, which has Hasbro Pulse). The Pit of Judgement was not, so Ravage should have significantly wider availability in general.

    Questions for Hasbro Transformers Brand Team

    Even better, could we get some bios for the characters in Kingdom who didn't get them (mainly the Fossilisers). Another one from me - international distribution has been failing even worse than normal recently. How are fans expected to keep up with the line when the likes of the Buzzworthy...

    Questions for Hasbro Transformers Brand Team

    Is there any hope that the line will move to higher price points in exchange for undoing recent cost cutting (thinner plastic walls, more hollowness, MABS plastic etc)?

    Transformers Legacy Line Revealed

    No interest in Laser Prime, he is just ultimately the original but worse. Having said that he doesn't look terrible for modern part budgets. Scourge might be tempting if he's not miserable to get hold of being a Warmart exclusive. Dragstrip looked fine, but in lots of ways he's by far the...

    Transformers Legacy Line Revealed

    I think the worrying thing is that it seems like Wave 3 of Kingdom wasn't just an aberration, but there's been another permanent reduction in costs and parts counts. That's going to suck, because that wave was bad.
