These are all fine, but Megatron's what I'm really looking forward to. I love the old WfC figure, but it would be great to get that design at a bigger size, and with his mace. A better Shockwave and FoC Megatron would be great too.
Back on the subject of normal Studio Series, I just dug into my Cheetor finally. While his left bicep has spots painted on, the right bicep is completely unpainted. Looking at pictures online, it appears they're both supposed to have spots. It's pretty minor, but it jumps out at me now that I've noticed it. Is this a common defect, or is it just mine?
The deluxes don’t do much for me. Barricade, even if accurate, is a bit boring, while Bumblebee definitely has some questionable design choices. Especially around the pot belly car thing he‘s got going on. The best thing Bee has going for him is being available for $25 at mass retail. The original deluxe has been off market for over a decade at this point so that might make it enticing from that angle.
But with all the Cybertronian influenced designs we’ve gotten since 2010…I’m not sure this one resonates enough for me to get it.
Digging Optimus, though. He was one of my favorite designs and ADORED his 2010 figure. The only issue I had was his relative size. This release seems to address that while also adding in the fantastic Battle Axe the design utilized. Heck, it even looks like it reuses some of the engineering from the original toy. I’m eager to see Megatron.
The games were a lot of fun. I wonder if this has to do with the rumored Titan Nemesis (I think it was rumored anyway).
Wouldnt mind an updated version of the Combaticons either.
My only complaint now is you have SS BB movie figures, the G1 Cybertron figures seeing release through Buzzworthy, now a third set of cybertron vehicles being released. Granted WFC had 2 whole video games, the others had under 10 minutes of screen time. Seems like a lot of effort for some figures that weren't really around much. And I know Im going to take some flak for this, its cool. Just saying my opinion.
