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.

@  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.

Found Trilogy Prime today (the Deluxe with the trailer) at my local Target (65th Street in Sacramento, CA), and boy, does it look snazzy. But I couldn't buy it because it rang up for $30. (that is why the picture is of the toy in the Target employee's hands and not in my own with a receipt next to it.) Still... this might be a news item, as I don't recall this being sighted anywhere domestically yet.

It's got the gradient, but it's kind of faint. No painted rims though.

It opens, but not the way trailers actually open. But there's no conversion or anything, it just cracks open. There's nothing inside it. It is cool though. I'd buy it for $20. jive, who am I kidding, if I had the dough I would have bought it anyway, LOL.

UPDATE: I talked to my man who tipped me off about this item's in-stockness, and he says it IS $30. (He said '20 dollar trailer' and I misinterpreted that. He LITERALLY meant they were charging $20 for the trailer!) It sure is a pretty box, though.

If hasbro was smart, they would have only sold this deluxe Optimus with this trailer. I'm sure a lot of people won't be getting it since the the base figure looks worse than the original release (though not necessarily worse than the crazy gold repaint) and comes with no weapons, but just a big box instead.

Truth be told, I've not been happy with any of the DotM trailers. I originally wanted both the CV one and the Ultimate one, but I've persuaded myself that I don't need them. It's kind of a shame that I've only felt the need to buy two Optimus toys from the whole of the DotM line (normal CV commander and the first WM deluxe).

With a deluxe-scale cab and a trailer that size? Yeah, that's about a $30 toy. I believe it.

Well, there's one Transformers item I'll be hunting for now. If the gold gradient on the nose of the truck cab really is faint/nonexistent, I'll probably just use the first Wal-Mart deluxe OP that I currently have instead (he at least has a gun to store in the trailer, too).

I was half-joking, actually; I've been on the fence about Lunarfire OP because counting this deluxe OP with trailer, that would be three iterations of the mold that I'd have gotten - and they'd all barely look different. icon-waspy.gif I don't typically buy duplicates of the same mold, since I try to budget my hobby spending; I think the only times I've gotten multiple versions of the same mold are a few Mini-Con teams (just three of the sword-combiner teams, really), the Energon combiner components, and the Cybertron Hot Shot and Red Alert molds (replacing their normal forms with the Cyb Defense versions and getting the extensively-visually-different Breakaway and Cannonball). Lunarfire OP's oversized gun is tempting, but not really tempting enough to spend full deluxe price on just to get. icon-op.gif
