I'm mostly bugged by the HUGE tower hub on vehicle mode. It should be about half that tall....
I feel like that Skyquake is probably going to have the subdued colors of the Prime version but the body (ie Jhaixus) of the G1 version.
Which is really a shame. Hopefully we get the proper one as a G2 version or something in Selects.
As for Blitzwing. That plane is dreadful. The only bad part about the tank is the cockpit (which was purposefully put there for accuracy) and the robot is great. The TR does the three modes better with less trade offs but if I could only have one in my display it would be Legacy.
Also, regarding the listings - anyone think Leo Prime will be a shared mold with Leo breaker again? The Cybertron characters are getting decent focus, so I could see them doing this.
I feel like you don't do Leo Breaker unless there's a Cybertron Prime you can attach him to.
most other bots tend to be, how should I put it, mirrored, where you can draw a line down the middle and both sides are pretty much even with their bodies, if you get my meaning?
...I mean, Lio has the lion head for a shoulder, where's most other bots tend to be, how should I put it, mirrored, where you can draw a line down the middle and both sides are pretty much even with their bodies, if you get my meaning?
I think that you're referring to symmetry. If so, yes, I think that is something that designers generally try to keep in mind. But, aside from the lion head-as-shoulder-pauldron, his robot mode is fairly balanced.
This would be cool to see in the Legacy line, a few nods to Alternators.I just emailed Toyhax to ask if they had plans to make Alternators Smokescreen stickers for Blue Silverstreak - because that'd make it worth it to pick up a second copy. That, or, finding stickers from a model kit somewhere.
