Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

Hey, who am I to judge if a giant robot wants to show its cleavage to the world? :D

That is a great price for something that massive. I have an unopened FP Colossus set and a United Bruticus, but haven't found the time or motivation to put it all together yet. I just might sell it off and bite on this if this turns out to be good. Colossus strikes me as a bit small compared to my half-a-Hercules and the Energon redecoes are really poor likenesses of the Combaticons. Gonna need to see colors at the very least, though.

I keep saying I'm done with third parties, but damn this thing looks awesome.  No matter how good the reviews are, I doubt I'll get the whole thing, but maybe not-Brawn could end up in my collection.

Yeah, that would definitely be a dealbreaker.  I want these to be my MP Combaticons since I'm doubtful Tomy will manage a Masterpiece combiner no matter how much the designers may want to do one.

I'm getting those.  Let's hope the 3P Dinobots, Skyfire, Computron and Defensor are better than Uranos (which, after much agonizing, I passed on) or else my MP Autobots are gonna be hopelessly outmatched between the official MP Decepticons, iGear Seekers, Quakewave, Terminus Hexatron, the Warbotron not-Combaticons and the MMC not-Predacons.

Tempting to be sure, but I'm not quite ready to retire FP's Bruticus. This set does look incredible though and if I didn't already own some incarnation of a 3rd party Bruticus, Warbotron would definitely be preordered.

Given Perseus' deep clearance at BBTS I don't think any 3rd Party is going to venture into doing any non-G1 Combiners for quite some time.

 

Granted Ruination has far more recognition than the SG Constructicons.

Perseus was pretty damned niche, though.  Moreso than G2 Bruticus or Ruination by a long shot.

It looks like the combined form doesn't have elbows, or if it does, they're immediately below the shoulders.  I could be wrong, but as much as I like the look of the the thing overall, for that pricepoint it should have much better poseability than the G1 toy.

They're using the arm robot's legs as the elbow joints, similar to Colossus, M3, Uranus, and War Lord. 

 

So all you need to do is orient those legs the right way to take advantage of the built-in joints.
