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

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

Some people say revenge is sweet. Others say revenge is a dish best served cold. So basically, revenge is ice cream.

Retribution is fun.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

'Sides, we all know the best G.I. Joe movie is Street Fighter, even if people haven't realized it yet.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 April 2017 - 05:14 PM)

What's the general opinion here about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra?

Did somebody mention wallabies?

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

He is mistransformed. His stomach, at least. According to the images of him from BotCon, the sides of his abs fold back.

Also, that prod of his totally looks like the Scorpion-guy that Takara's Soundwave comes with.

Looks like his fenders need to tilt back further on his shouders, his "belt" needs to fold around his waist, and his windows need to fold down on his arms. Looks pretty good now, and I think he'll look great when properly transformed.

Boy - with a very little bit of paint that head could be turned into a pretty decent Terrorsaur.

And aren't his wheels supposed to be up higher by his shoulders too?

Love that he comes with that cattle prod spear thing. I definitely didn't think he would, especially since I believe he only used it once on the show.

Boy are they're going to be any surprises as Toyfair this year? I mean we've seen a mockup of him before but they're revealing all the goods before I get there. icon-fire.gif

The surprises will be seeing the toys unphotoshopped and under normal lighting, and hopefully not mistransformed. icon-waspy.gif

Thanks, I was looking for that picture. For future reference do you know if the Skyquake picture is still around? I really hope his and Breakdowns toys get shown.

Yeah, but they may end up being hand painted samples that are not indicative of the final product (like silver eared Universe Sunstreaker or black faced Alternator Silverstreak). icon-fire.gif

So he's actually not that much mistransformed. Just fold back the stomach pieces and straighten his chest kibble.

Ouch. I was at least hoping that the windows folded over the forearms to help with that area of nothingness on the inside of the arms. And that the hood torso did...something to make that look less goofy.

I'm a little disappointed he doesn't have the large yellow semi-circular areas to either side of his head, those are my favorite parts of his robot mode.

Looks decent otherwise, face looks fantastic!

Takara Soundwave has a circular, multi-pronged weapon-mode Minicon.

This here has a u-shaped prod at the end of it. the Micron Booster snake looks more like Knockout's weapon than the scorpion does, which is based off of Soundwave's tentacle.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
