Same. (You're right about those Tonka trucks, too.)

Personally I thought the earlier and individual pics looked better than this;

Will be sticking with a V2 KO Hercules and official head upgrade kit plus modified digger attachment, I think.

*shrug*

I still want him...

Denyer 2015-03-05 05:17 PM

Noticeably little kibble there. But that's pretty authentic to the original toy and how the character's been animated/drawn, and was clearly probably the right decision for the main audience.

Raises interesting possibilities about someone copying and downsizing, though.

Loving the box art with the hilarious shrunken head

Tantrum 2015-03-09 10:37 PM

I'm on the fence about CW Optimus. There's been a lot of conjecture about extra limb-bots, like Masquerade repaints or Slingshot. Have any of these been confirmed for US retail? I'm more likely to want an extra combiner torso if there'll be extra limbs to go with him.

Is there likely to be an Ultra Magnus repaint? I already have far more Optimus toys than UMs, and would prefer an UM. But, there's already an Ultra Magnus coming out, and the Ultra Prime moniker/gestalt head make me wonder if this is the CW Ultra Magnus tribute.

They've shown up in US store listings, which is about as confirmed as things get nowadays barring an official Hasbro news release. We probably won't know for sure until BotCon, though.

There's been rumours that one might come out, but with the Leader coming soon and the figure already being remolded into Motormaster I'd be surprised if it happened any time soon.

Thanks, Warcry. I did pick up CW Optimus. There's some minor QC issues with the paint, a small spot of grey in the midst of red, and two bubles on the roof. Other than that, he's a decent figure with a few minor flaws in each mode. I'm hopeful that most of them will stand out less with Motormaster's more unified color scheme.

The truck looks great and rolls well; the only issue is the combined mode chest on the back sticking out. The bot has a small head, though you can flip out the gestalt head and use that instead. It's a little oversized, but not by much. The torso mode is the weakest. The head sits on a flat piece that folds out, but doesn't sit flush against the body, so you see a gap between the head and torso.

The decision to make the Legends figure optional means the torso has to work with or without it. Both versions look OK, but I think if they'd commited to one, they could have made that one look better than either look now.

Mirage = Drag Strip
Prowl = Streetwise (the light bar mod being for the Dead End mould swings it away from the Lambo)
Sunstreaker = Breakdown
Ironhide = First Aid

Hopefully all with new heads, of course. Anyone have any other thoughts?

The Optimus combined mode is refered to as Ultra Prime, and the head looks like a hybrid of Optimus Prime's and Ultra Magnus'. Maybe they'll do blue and white limbs to match UM's, like Mirage, Jazz, and Tracks. Gears is blue and red instead of blue and white, but red still works for UM, so he might work as the Offroad repaint.

Here are the Reissue Coneheads for the curious.

Skyquake87 2015-03-17 09:14 AM

Nice. Saw Kapow have the reissue Insecticons for 40, which is pretty much what the last reissue set cost.

Ah crap now I have to wait to get those instead of the helicopter and off-road things.

Thunderwave 2015-03-25 02:27 AM

Woot! I'm happier about these then I should be.

Not that there is anything wrong with Alpha Bravo. He's a neat toy, and stand in, all on his own.

Skyquake87 2015-03-25 03:14 PM

The more I've played with with Off Road, the more I think 'what are you doing with the Stunticons?'. Aesthetically, he's quite slender and tough looking. The rest of the Stunticons are these slick looking cars that turn into portly mis-shapen blocks and he looks out of place with them. So I'll go for Brake-Neck (like what they've done there) and skip Quickslinger...as he looks like a slightly feeble Firefly retool/ repaint.

Yeah, but will be happy to have a decent standalone CW figure separate from Superion...

Warcry 2015-03-25 07:51 PM

Glad that they made them for those who want to make their combiners G1-accurate. I wonder if the combined modes will look better or worse with symmetrical limbs? I doubt Superion will look much different honestly, since Slingshot and Alpha Bravo have the same colour schemes.

Wildrider is at least a bit different from Offroad, and the mold looks a lot nicer than it did as Dead End. Love the new head, too! Slingshot not so much...he just looks like a duller Fireflight.

Info seems to be foggy when it comes to how these will actually be sold, though. Are they online exclusives, or is that just a few fans jumping to conclusions?

Thunderwave 2015-03-26 10:05 PM

I was looking at my Superion and now that we are getting a Slingshot I can't help but to feel like that kid growing up. The one with three guys from one combiner team and two limbs from other random teams tacked on to form one combiner because they couldn't complete a set.

Warcry 2015-04-24 04:07 PM

A whole bunch of new CW listings have popped up at TFW. Combaticons aren't a surprise, but some of the other stuff? A bit more of one.
