Tucker, it is the same thread that you already posted. I am not approving that. As we have discussed you need to submit different content.

I don't think even he knows his own views, frankly. What with blaming Spyro and having the Navy Seal copypasta in his so-called manifesto

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:27 PM)

Even in the general population there are those who share his views. Probably a significant crossover with the ones who blame Muslims for what happened.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 March 2019 - 02:13 PM)

@Pennpenn or Slime Minister... perhaps Crime Minister. Take your pick. We've got one too

@  Noideaforaname : (14 March 2019 - 11:26 AM)

You can tell it's Pi Day when you see news crews hovering over a pizzaria that's furiously cleaning its storefront. (also, I guess I'm looking elsewhere for lunch...)

@  Pennpenn : (14 March 2019 - 08:40 AM)

Or maybe Prime Sinister?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 March 2019 - 10:21 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (13 March 2019 - 12:10 PM)

No, necromancy is illegal. So is "salvaging" old parts.

Turns out that Galvatron isn't the finalized version:

 

 

This was the exact same Galvatron toy that was on display at the NY Toyfair, that was just sent to the Australian display by Hasbro, so it is not a guarantee of the final colors.

 

We now return to Schrodinger's Pink Galvatron. 

 

Just "Schrodinger's Galvatron" will be fine -- calling him Pink in the name kind of invalidates the 'held in abeyance' state.

I'm not inclined to believe that these are photos of the same sample.

DSC08776.jpg

This Galvatron has purple on his titanmaster (look at the bit between the crown prongs), a silver cannon latch, a ton of silver paint, and its shoulder joint appears to be stuck in vehicle mode configuration.

Toyfair-Australia-Galvatron-1.jpg

This Galvatron - on the other hand - has a totally grey titanmaster, a purple cannon latch, a lot of non-reflective unpainted off-white plastic, and a functioning shoulder hinge.

EDIT: Not only is it missing its hip skirts, but it's also not the alt-mode sample. In this picture, you can see what is presumably what the unpainted heads look like under NYTF's lighting conditions. None of the silver on either Galvatron matches it, so game, set and match.

I'm actually really disappointed with Astrotrain. Sentinel Prime's altmode looked like the clearest possible "to make him look more different his shuttle mode is upside down and has some of its parts moved to what will be Astrotrain's underside"... and then Astrotrain is also a weird upside-down shuttle.

Yes, you don't mistake the look of a transition between ultra-glossy shiny painted specimens and those that are pretty clearly molded with off white or grey instead of silver. This is surely a final toy, and about time too since it was unveiled in October and we're practically to April. If the US versions are to come out before the Japanese versions, they're going to need to get them on the ships right about now.

I feel like that off-white would look better as a "proper" grey instead. Would clash less with the bits of painted silver at least.

I think I'm in the minority that's pretty pleased overall with these reveals.

Astrotrain looks pretty sharp. I wish they had gone with the cartoon deco this time around but, oh well. I'll concede that the train mode is pretty weak, but that will be the mode he's in the least.

I'm also of the mindset that this Galvatron is the final version. He looks good, all in all, though I still worry about the articulation on that cannon arm. I'm good with those colours, too.

I think Ravage is good, for what those Legends class tapes are trying to accomplish. They appeal to me more than the data discs from a few years back.

I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

Yeah, that's impossible.  The NY Toy Fair sample was a hand-painted resin thinger.   Sooooo, no.

I actually like the Astrotrain Mould better as Sentinel Prime (I know, heresy, right?) I guess the fact that he turns into a Vague-ish train Thing and vage-ish shuttle thing suits a new character better with the excuse of "Because cybertronz mode, that's why!"

Astrotrain doesn't bother me because this is pretty much the same basic design seen the Stormbringer trade nearly a decade ago. Add to that the fact that we already have a "real-world" alt modes for Astrotrain that came out the same length of time ago. Bigger, more cybertronian Astrotrain isn't a problem.

Astrotrain is maybe wave 2 unless they've messed around with the apparent order of things. The presentations so far have made it out to be that Sentinel is supposed to be the other half of wave 1 with Galvatron.

Yeah, I want this for the sole reason of it scaling up to Springer, Sandstorm and Blitzwing.

Of course, I'd prefer Springer/Sandstorm/Blitzwing/Octane at Voyager size and Astrotrain/Broadside as Leaders, but yadda yadda beggars and choosers.

I think my main reason for wanting TR Astrotrain is that the comics tend to show Astrotrain as a big guy... and a deluxe mold just doesn't fit that...

The little notch in Astrotrain's chest makes it seem like there should be a little set of wings to clip in there.

I like Astrotrain's colors, and it's nice to see that he can have traintoes or snazzy pointy boots. I'll have to wait and see if I like Sentinel's colors any more when in-hand pics hit, then decide which I want. Too many others are gonna be getting my money to buy both of them. Shame that his shuttle windows are still unpainted. A bit of black on the wings would help too.

 

Galvatron looks great here. If those are the final plastic colors then I'll be happy.

 

Crashbash! Still looking great, and finally a nice close look at the face in the final plastic. Nice and sharp!

 

And those rumors of a new Bumblebee..a pretool of Wheelie could make a fairly nice Cybertronian 'Bee.

I'm disappointed Hasbro is continuing their trend of not releasing Astrotrain in cartoon colors. I've always thought the dark gray and purple was a much nicer color scheme, and I wish it was the default. At least Takara will probably be there to fulfill that niche.

I think I'm happy with the old Classics Astrotrain toy for looking vaguely more like a train and a space shuttle. They obviously each had bits of the other vehicle hanging off, but they got the point across. This time around the vehicles both look like amorphous sci-fi vehicles, in which case I prefer it if they're explicitly Cybertronian, as with Sentinel Prime. The glorious orange doesn't hurt either.
