Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

@  tigerhawk : (05 May 2021 - 01:30 PM)

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

Well, if this is even close in size, this couldn't be worse timing for Hasbro. It will be interesting to see if it garners a legal response.

Judging by pin and (covered) screwhole size, this isn't much bigger than Armada Unicron, if not about the same size.

That may be, but if it's more screen accurate and half the cost? It might siphon some of the fence-sitters away.

I'm not saying it won't.

 

Also, it occurs to me that we can't judge screen accuracy until we've seen the entire figure.  As it is, the only thing more accurate about the head is that it has the devil beard.  All the rest of the details are about as off or moreso than the HasLab Unicron (and looks suspiciously like it's pulled from Figueroa art from the IDW TF:TM adaptation), so what it will probably have going for it more than anything is manageable size.

but will they have something to show before the haslab deadline? this fandom wants pics NOW! if all they show before the deadline is a head and a hand, is it really enough to stop people considering hasbros?

Assuming that those pins are the usual kind, this would be like CW Devastator-sized tops, which I'm not against. If it's reasonably priced and in that ballpark of size, I could be persuaded to upgrade from Platinum Unicron.

You can also see a screwhole cover on the palm of the hand, so assuming that screw isn't somehow enormous, it sits not much larger than Armada Unicron, maybe 2-3".

Lol that's hilarious considering these guys make their combiners bigger than that.

 

Though I guess it's harder to ignore putting on and taking off a gigantic pair of pants when transforming to and from planet mode.

This is allegedly a 20" tall Unicron with almost no kibble that turns into a spherical planet. For $210.

Titans are $150.

Eh, I wont say your wrong, but Im a tad less skeptical. 3rd party groups hire less people, so some of that extra price could be mitigated there. The biggest cost factor for 3rd party is factory time. We are already seeing some Masterpiece style pieces that are just as complex as Takara, but are a tad cheaper than the latest Takara pricing.

While the price might shift once its put up for preorder, once e retail takes their cut, I dont see benefit for them to make wild claims on price. The Unicron Kickstarter will be likely over by then, so its not like theyll be in direct competition at that point.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

This is still intriguing. If the real (non-shadowy) images, if/when we see them, do hold up this impressive seeming Unicron. I will be a little tempted.

Yeah, theres enough curved planet plates hanging off him that I can just about believe it can transform into the planet mode. At any rate its certainly elicited more interest in me than Haslab Unicron

Their Facebook post claims a December release, die cast parts, LEDS and no partsforming. Height to the head is 48 cm or about 19 inches.

 

I think I buy the no partsforming bit. Look at the last shot of the planet mode. Each half of his chest is towards the side of the ring attachment point. Also, the w/ring attachment points in planet mode appear to be the same in robot mode.

The planet maw looks terrible, though.  I can't unsee a pizza there.

 

It's super weird to me that the head seems to be very expressly taken from how Don Figueroa drew it in the IDW TF:TM adaptation, whereas the rest is pretty much the actual film character model.  What an odd choice.
