Well known pompous pontificator
I’m still over here waiting for that good look at Core Voyager Optimus Primal…
Yup. TakaraTomy hasn't done anything like that since they started mainly releasing Hasbro stuff. Last I recall.Is that, like, the first Transformers campaign item in over six years?
Yes, I wish the Legacy/Kingdom BW toys had some more ports, so that they could interact more with the fossilizer.I guess Chuck splurged on all the available stuff. Basically, all the Battle Masters are some sort of butt blasters, at this stage.
I find it interesting how much shared engineering there is between the Weaponizers and Combiner Optimus Primal. The biggest mechanical design difference is in the arms: the Weaponizers features the adjustable shoulder pads and extended range with the ball jointed elbow.
But they are only similar on that engineering front. I actually think the Combiner executes the design a little better in terms of the position of the beast head and the increased colors. The angled beast head works well on the Combiner and allows for a more “natural”
I really DO like the increased colors on the Combiner, but the more dull deco is probably more accurate to the film.
For those with a bunch of “accessory bots”, the Beast Alliance toys, as a whole, are LOADED with ports.
As always, I'd suggest patience. Hasbro likes their repaints, so it would not surprise me if some of those two packs don't end up in the Battle Master single assortment later on.Although I've ordered the to individual weaponisers (to go with my existing Rhinox, Cheetor and possibly Megaligator Headmaster (Japanese exclusive), I didn't bother with the two double-pack sets in the video above as I doubt want the bigger figures. Why they didn't either make partners that "should" go with each character (as they've done with Scorponok and his scorpion partner), or sell Chain Claw and non-Tigatron together/individually is beyond me. Hopefully, they'll released then as recolours individually? I hope not-Skullcruncher gets released in Gatoraider colours! Failing that, I'll probably repaint the grey bits green myself.
You talking about the design, the deco, the mistransformation or questionable engineering, the stagnant pictures or what?I don't think he is in anyway organized properly.

"Transformers" is a content created by Takara Tomy Co., Ltd. that originates from Japanese toys. The second concept and the grand story of super robot lifeforms that can transform freely fight in space. After the toys were released in the United States in 1984, animation and comics became a big hit, and in 1985 toy sales and animation started in Japan.

In 2015, the 1st of April, was established as "Bikkuriman Day", linking it to the concept of Bikkuriman (a character who surprises people) to a date where people are usually surprised.
