Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

@  Otaku : (19 June 2018 - 10:53 AM)

As for Megatron vs Skynet... Shockwave decides to partner with Skynet and oust Megatron after first contact is made. We get Terminator/Vehicon hybrids. At first the humans are expedient pawns (why waste loyal Decepticons), then enough humans augmented with Cybertronian tech impress Megs that, after victory, humanity is absorbed into the Decepticon empire. Even if only as second or third class citizens, it still beats being seen as vermin by Skynet.

...which are low res as hell.

 

Brawl looks even browner than his Hasbro release, but hey he's got a red mouthplate that's cool. And Vortex looks neat too, but it's a bit hard to see at this scale (and with that red text sitting over it...) Onslaught looks like he's trying to do too many things at once, unfortunately, Blast Off's still a Write Off and Swindle has painted hubcaps. Oh, and the Combiner feet are Brawl/Swindle coloured.

Gonna have to wait for clearer pictures on these guys, I think, but from what I can see here:

  • Onslaught would be perfect without the grey paint on his legs
  • Colours on Vortex are unexpected but neat
  • That's a nice shade of orange-brown on Blast Off, and it'll probably help to distinguish him from Space Harrier
  • Swindle looks completely average
  • Brawl being brown is kind of hilarious, given how many people were insisting that "Takara will give us the green Brawl that we deserve"

Soooo... undecided? It'll basically come down to how much money I have when Victorion, Grand Galvatron and Bruticus come out which of them I get.

These look amazing!
 
Yellow and green feet, blue helmet & silver face on Onslaught, silver Bruticus torso with Blast Off colored chest plate, despite being cartoon accurate Onslaught still has his chest colored in like the toy (they didn't ignore that fact and colored it any way), red faced Brawl (I always saw it more as maroon), gray & blue Vortex, purple on Swindle's alt mode. 
 
Beautiful!
 
I'm so glad that we have two versions of almost everything, as it makes me appreciate when we get something like this all the more.
 
http://www.robotking...m/ttmeuw07.html
 
Vortex has a pretty light silver face as does Swindle.  You can also see Vortex's sporting a multi-colored combiner peg like Zombie War Breakdown.  Top is gray and the bottom is metallic blue.  Blast Off has the crest paint lilac and his eyes gray.  :D

Not that this is a big deal because 90% of people won't be displaying him this way, but how much is Onslaught's vehicle mode is going to suffer as a result of the Blast-off colored combiner chest?   It's pretty amazing what they've managed to do with Onslaught to achieve 2 different color schemes.  And Brawl is half-NOT-green in robot mode anyway, so I can deal...with that now. All I can hear in my head right now is [Vortex speaking in] Onslaught's voice: "Combaticons!  Transform to BROO-TEE-KUSS!"

I wouldn't be surprised if Swindle does the same as Vortex with his peg.  Top blue (if they try to mirror the window color) and bottom purple.

You can see you can angle all of Vortex's propeller blades up like the Hasbro version too (in the robot mode pic).

This is looking great so far - what I can make out of it, that is.  It's too hard on my eyes to try and see all of the little details you guys are talking about, but I am really loving the color schemes and the fact that the combiner feet are designed to match their respective bots.  I especially like what they've done with Vortex's colors and am still loving the quad-peller.  :thumbsup

 

Edit:  The news article on the front page mentioned a new/different gun for Swindle.  I really don't see that in any pics.  Where is it?

A little disappointed with the colored feet since that messes with the whole switcharoo concept (Transformers: Switcharoo City!) but I have to admit it looks really nice. They sure nailed the cartoon accuracy thing. Glad I preordered it.

Yup. The top half is light blue to be part of his windscreen. And the bottom half is purple to be his purple belly from the toon.

Not liking those color coded feet, and sadly Bruticus will end up having blue thighs if you do the thigh rotation.

Other than that, it looks good so far.

I wonder if the G1 prototype of Bruticus's chest plate was colored like Blast off, or if it was just someone imagining Blast Off's wings become the chest or something.  Or if pre-TF Diaclone Bruticus' chest was colored similar to whatever color Blast Off was (if such an unseen deco ever existed)

The Blast-off colored chest plate looks nice. I kinda want the gray on Onslaught's legs to be a lighter shade, but glad to see it's there. The colored feet is a cool detail I hadn't imagined.

 

I guess I just don't get the Brawl/green/brown issue.... Blast-off is brown. Compare Brawl to him, that's not the same color. Brawl's got a bit of a green hue to him. 

 

For robot mode, the 'wings' on the Bruticus chest plate fold up, right? In vehicle mode pics I've always seen them folded down. If they can fold up, then the underside could be painted a different color to help out Onslaught's vehicle mode colors a bit more.

 

Still, his vehicle mode should be better than Hasbro's. The Blast-off colors are closer to Onslaught's color that's missing from the Hasbro gray version, plus Hasbro's vehicle mode for him is nearly devoid of any paint.
