UW Bruticus does look very nice indeed... What are the odds of a G2 repaint?

The West are getting a G2 Bruticus (pictures are already out there), but it uses the Hasbro jet Blast Off rather than the shuttle (Boo!)

Hopefully the floppy waist issue on the tank mould gets fixed!

I'm not sure you can really tell from the pics? Brawl's waist is always going to look a bit shonky due to how it's designed, but there's a little tab in the midst of all that, which is supposed to hold it all together but isn't very secure.

I was just wondering whether they had tightened that connection or not.

Takara are redoing Ultra Magnus in Diaclone colours, in a move that absolutely nobody could possibly have predicted.

Now we just need James Roberts to come up with a name for the urine coloured Ehobby homage...

Liking that Magnus. Not sure if I'll insta-buy him, but definitely liking it.

Production sample photos of Masterpiece Ratchet:

Looks like those red crosses on his shoulders may be optional...

I like that it's an option.

...and they're definitely not implying you could just cut the red crosses into the right shape.

And in a shocking twist that nobody could have seen coming, Unite Warriors Computron is teased:

So, er, Masterpiece Ramjet is looking a bit... er...

http://news.tfw2005.com/2016/03/15/n...-ramjet-311355

Oh god those knee pads.

Hopefully there's enough space in the back kibble to flip out the nosecone so he doesn't look like he's dropping a spiky turd of doom.

And that's a BIG face.

Oh my, that's even uglier than I'd expected from the preview pics. That face is terrible, and not even with the excuse "it looked that way in the cartoon", because the cartoon is nowhere near that angular in any shot I've been able to Google up. And those kneepads...

The MP seeker is already a poor figure, and they're not doing it any favours here.

I think that Takara tried too, too hard on the whole "retro looks for a 30+ year old cartoon integrated to a modern complex toy".

In my opinion it looks good, but also goofy.

Transformation video of Primal out, but I can't view it. Figure looks amazingly accurate in robot mode.

Earliest he can come out is September [seeing as Delta is the next one after Ratchet, in August]. Really interested to see if this will open the floodgates for more Beast MPs.

The only thing that really sticks out to me are those goalie pads he's got on. Not because I think they're particularly bad, but because they're huuuuuuge.

But then, as Hound pointed out... the goalie is the most important player on the team. Maybe Ramjet is channeling his inner goalie.

I'd be in if he came with a melting Harrison and a non-linear plan diorama.

I wonder if you could get the figure into that butterfly split that goalies do...

I'd just want Ramjet to come with the camera from Megatron's Master Plan.

Cause, y'know, that was clearly a key moment for him, much like serving drinks was for Grimlock.
