Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 May 2021 - 11:20 AM)

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.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

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.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

IGN has previewed a few of the figures from the Siege sequel, now apparently subtitled EarthRise.

https://www.ign.com/...g-optimus-prime

Gotta be honest, the presence of such a hardcore G1 Optimus really makes me wonder what the point of Voyager Siege Prime was. Also I really hope we do see a Cybertron mode Bumblebee eventually, but seeing as those recent leaks are looking to be true, I'm doubting it.

Ironworks is unexpected and great. Grapple's claw is wonderful. Optimus looks good, even given the limits to that Combat Deck.

I'm a little bummed that we're already done with space vehicles. I could have used more of those.

Ever since we learned that the Ruckley comics tie into the Netflix show, I've figured that both the comics and the Siege toyline were prequel/teaser/filler for that new show; like how the 07 movie got a prequel comic that was really only interesting when it was on Cybertron. Now we're on Earth already. I wonder whether some of EarthRise will be the Netflix cast.

Ironworks is from 1989. The Hot Rod Patrol is from 1990.

Glad to see Grapple looks good, even if his legs are a lil skinny. And Weaponizer Micromaster Bases (Baseizers?) are a neat idea I hadn't considered. Hope we get one of the fire station base.

Outside of liking his headsculpt, that Optimus isn't doing much that Stegetimus didn't already do for me. Having big, boring, grey box with no Roller, no paint apps outside of the stripe, and no design flourishes to make it more interesting doesn't help either.

Those Micromasters both look like Stege Swindler, functionally useless arm articulation and all, and you don't even seem to be able to make a goofy looking gun out of them anymore. So so much for those improving I guess. Can't wait to buy them anyways bc they're relatively cheap and I need them to populate the bases and also I'm an idiot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

‪Shit. I knew that was the main theory for Deluxe Ironworks but I kinda didn't expect it to be real. Irontread rename makes sense. Micromaster base weaponizer. I want it. Hope there are more. :)

On the one hand this is a quick pass on "space vehicles" but on the other hand their "space vehicles" were largely half-assed "close as we can get to their earth modes" anyway:

I'll say this, for doing G1 again they DO look to be be doing it well. If they have to do Prime again and Grapple again any least they really really well done. Things like Big Daddy and Ironworks here are what I want more of though.

-ZacWilliam very curious if it's Earth Clifjumper then.

I don't understand this sentiment.  Comparing Siege to G1 is no different than saying Justice League (2001) is the same thing as Superfriends.  Is it because it's the same characters with recognizable designs?  Do you want Batman to dress up like a bird?  Anyway, I respect your opinion, I just don't get what you want.  I wish they would do more of a Cybertron-based story, but no matter what, Earth is going to factor in eventually.
