@  Robowang : (24 April 2017 - 11:53 AM)

Menasor's problem is that his crotch is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high. I couldn't care less about those other issues. If your dong is a chestburster, something ain't right.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:40 AM)

Seems like all the combiners have an issue like that, the legs can never be completely straight in combined mode, the finished big bot is always looming eerily or hip-thrusting.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 AM)

I doubt having an integrated trailer would have swayed me into buying CW Motormaster. But what definitely put me off were Internet reports of awful hip ratcheting.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:36 AM)

I might also mention that ~not~ being a big truck has worked for the Internet pretty well.

@  unluckiness : (24 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

I moaned about Motormaster because his combiner mode was awful

@  Rycochet : (24 April 2017 - 11:31 AM)

People moaned about the choices made during Combiner wars.that meant characters like Motormaster/Menasor weren't G1G1G1.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:23 AM)

He could always be a very small red truck.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2017 - 10:59 AM)

But how will you know it's Optimus Prime if he's not a big red truck?

@  Broadside : (24 April 2017 - 10:20 AM)

Personally, I'm not a fan of the extreme-accuracy trend. The character choices are kind of sure-fine-whatever, but outside of stuff like Alpha Trion that's a huge divergence from the source material, there doesn't feel like there's much imagination in the designs any more.

@  Pennpenn : (24 April 2017 - 05:03 AM)

@  Noideaforaname : (24 April 2017 - 12:37 AM)

The Generations lineup should be decided by hitting Random Page on the wiki. "Next one is... Crankstart." 'Alright, I love the Scavengers!' "No, no, CrankSTART. The repaint of a repaint of a repaint of a Scout version of a Deluxe based on a background vehicle from the Live Action film." 'Oh'

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 11:31 PM)

After we get a couple of Pretenders. And a Titans Return Star Saber (not a difficult retool from Galvatron).

@  BlackMax : (23 April 2017 - 10:21 PM)

I really do like all the attention to the 80s toys, being from that era myself. However, I would be really happy if (let's say post Trypticon) the Generations line turns to the 2001 RiD line, Beast Wars stuff, and moves forwarda bit.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:19 PM)

I'm curious because I'm not an 80s kid nor have I ever held an actual 80s toy in my hands, but I'm pretty sure a mathematically significant portion of 80s kids here do have a like for cartoon accuracy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:15 PM)

How much of this community favors versus not favors the current Hasbro design team's general trend of accuracy to classic 1980s toys and lack of attention to any other era of Transformers?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 03:40 AM)

Sometimes the Shoutbox takes a little longer to catch up to a new avatar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 03:00 AM)

In the Shoutbox I'm seeing the pink thing instead of that guy with the weird eyes.

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 02:59 AM)

looks the same to me. maybe it looks different cause its smaller?

we're lucky to met FPJ's boss at fans party,I've asked question about their future products.
1.remember Junkions we've seen before?three characters,elder,male,female,all from robot to motocycle,ride on each other
2.remember prehistory gestalt we've seen before?still design stage,they want this set has the feeling like G1 gestalt toys,but plus more funs.they are considering this gestalt can exchange limbs with Seacons.
3.remember broadside we've seen before?we will see prototype soon,but our conversation interrupted by others.


So FansProject is still working on the Junkions, Prehistoric Combiner, and Broadside robot. The Combiner can exchange limbs with Scramble City type Combiners.

So is this Targetmaster Optimus a tiny Optimus who turns into a gun, or a big Optimus with a gun that turns into a guy, or a weirdly misnamed thing, or what?

Also that Constructicon image tells me nothing except that there will be a shovel involved.

The Constructicon is intreguing. I'd like to see more and know more about him. How big is he? What's his robot mode like? Is the the first of more to come? Will he combine with friends?

I know we don't have the answers to those questions yet. Just wanted to pose them while they were on my mind.

Ooh, wonder if these are replacement Constructicons for Classics/Energon Devastator, ala the "Swindle" and "Blast Off".

I have to say, this group of fans keeps the bar high for creativity. Rather than shrinking molds or adding new wings, they invent cool new stuff that works within the world of TF.

I know it's unlicensed, but goddamn does that SD Optimus look nice. When they first showed the original idea, with the monkey head, my immediate thought was, "That would look a LOT better with the real head." There's a shortage of cool SD transforming Transformers. Very tempted to get one. Sorry Hasbro! /=)

The Headmasters and Targetmaster are an easy pass. Constructicon guy looks interesting--maybe something along the lines of FP's Bruticus?

Judging by the pictures, the heads appear to be compatible with G1 Headmasters. Pick your Headmaster body of choice.

Yes, he said Soundwave transforms into his alt mode, he just didn't get to snap a picture.

Given the name and the tinyness, Targetmaster Prime apparently transforms into a gun, like the Perfect Effect Rumble/Frenzy toys.

They need to release a Targetmaster for Classic Rodimus.

Another idea is a Targetmaster for Alternators Rodimus that turns into a humanoid who can drive the car?

With all these new Headmaster heads, someone needs to make a simple, articulated "drone"/Transtector headless body that can have any Headmaster attach to it. Make it in several colors. Then you can use it for things like these guys or Snake/Cobra/Hothead, whatever.

Other then making funny pics showing Optimus with his Target/Headmasters stating "Stop playing with yourself!" I see no reason for these toys... Why would we want to put a G1 Prime or Soundwave head on another headmaster's torso? There aren't even headmasters for whom Prime's head would look on. Maybe Hosehead, but he is a smaller type of headmaster.

What WOULD have been amazing if they made a fusion cannon for G1/Classics Megatron that is a targetmaster. I designed such a toy for a friend of mine.

All intriguing, but I am sure the price range will continue to be far too prohibitive for me to afford any of them. Which is sad since I love me some new combiners and could use a head for my headless dudes.
