Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:09 AM)

I thought Hasbro made Micro Machines

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 October 2019 - 10:40 AM)

Jazzwares bought Wicked Cool Toys. So I guess Jazzwares is going to be making Micro Machines :p

I think the problem is they're making this in the post Transformers Hollywood landscape and trying to aim it at a wider audience. So awkwardly the 'kiddy' look of the original show has been substituted for what Western sci fi currently deems realistic. Problem being they're trying to apply that style to icons who used a different design language. Alpha came from the same place as Artoo and Threepio or the Lost in Space robot. You can't just reinterpret that into a nightmarish techno organic mess. They'd have been better designing a whole new robot and naming it Alpha Five. What they went with is the Alpha some kid woken up by a nightmare would have described to their parents in the 90s.

My only real issue with Alpha here is those weird light bulb eyes. Just give him a damn visor/sensor bar, whatever on that saucer head of his and be done with it.

I don't see what everyone is complaining about. This seems like a faithful enough redesign of a classic iconic look. I mean look at it. You have the bulbous eyes, the brain like head dome, the inhuman in length arms, the blue rubbery skin with red "veins"...

Wait, Power Rangers? I thought we were talking about This Island Earth.

Oh.  Lovely.

 

Reminds me of a line from a D&D Let's Play:

(linked 'cause language)

 

"They're hideous abominations against anything you would consider good and holy, but you just can't stay mad at those tiny faces."

 

It's ugly.  Probably one of the ugliest things I've seen designed for film.  And that's an actual render.  Not a crappy tie-in toy that we can excuse.  That is legit what they intend for the movie.  And it's ugly as hug.

 

On the other hand, it has big round eyes and looks just dopey enough that I can't help but find it adorable.

In other news, it looks like the BoA Ninja Steel Megazord toy will surprisingly have some degree of compatibility with some of the original BoJ Ninninger toys:

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
