Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

This Bumblebee. He doesn't transform, and comes with a helicopter backpack, so he's basically a larger than deluxe version of the G1 Actionmaster. There's a small piece that clips on the fender above the left shoulder that keeps popping off. I'll have to glue that, but he's otherwise great. I've be...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Had a fit of a time trying to get Mixmaster to connect securely. I guess that they'll both click into Overload to make the whole thing more sturdy. I only connected them the 1 time when I first got them, but I remember Mixmaster connecting to Scavenger securely without any extra help. The instructi...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Just about the only part of Arcee that is used in both modes is the bot chest/hood center, and this new figure uses faux parts for that. The Cyberverse figure doesn't fare much better. Years ago, I saw a photo posted here of an Arcee prototype that looked better than any of the released toys. I thin...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I honored Presidents' Day by exchanging pictures of past Presidents for Transformers. Cyberverse Ramjet - This is one of those Scout with half assed transitional mode instead of a proper alt mode. I remembered reading that he could assume a true jet mode, but forgot reading about the cockpit being p...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I would like to see as many of the Studio Constructicons get alternate color redecos as possible, but not the G1 green/purple. We know we're getting Skipjack/yellow Rampage, and a white Demolishor version of Scavenger seems inevitable. I think what I'd like for Mixmaster is a mostly white with blue...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I like how Spinister's fake cockpit gives him symmetrical legs with an asymmetrical transformation. If they'd had the cockpit split to form the legs like on the G1 toy, they'd need something else to fill the gap in the body of the chopper. If they'd kept one leg the copter, and done the one that for...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Thanks for the link. Mine does not have CHMS or a URL on the box, but does have the tech spec/bio card, so I think it's the real deal.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I don't know what CHMS is. The box says, "Hasbro Transformers Collector's Club Exclusive". The box also says, "Adult collectible, not intended for use by children." which is pretty odd for a redeco of a mainline toy. I guess the new head never went through safety testing. The instructions are still ...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Quintesson 3-pack A Quintesson judge comes with the same Shockwave and Prowl from the spark armor line, but with helmets instead of the armor. The Quint is black instead of greay, and has a flat panel for each face instead of having them come from the egg shaped body. Pushing the top rot...

Re: Siege Hound

It's nice to see someone still doing reviews here. Two minor quibbles. First, you only list 2 acessories, though he comes with 3. Is the small round thing part of one of the other acessories? Second, in the alt mode photo, you haven't folded the toes in, which makes for a more open passenger compart...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I don't know what's worse, that everyone has Spinister before me, or that so many people are buying him because of the one-note IDW portrayal and not the Marvel Comics badass. :( I've never encountered Spinister in fiction. I didn't have the G1 toy, so I haven't even read his bio. To me he has no-n...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'm so jealous of you Spinister-owning people. :( As well you should be. K-Mart's going out of business, and has all their toys 40% off. I got Cyberverse 1-step Wheeljack, Elite Armor Sky-Byte, and Elite Armor Bumblebee . G1 Wheeljack was my first ever TF back in the day, so I have an affinity/am a...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I opened all the stuff I mentioned last time. The only one close to disappoining is Mirage. He's not bad, except for the arms under the spoiler. I like how his wheels fold into his back to make a well proportioned torso with no backpack, and the translucent blue used for the legs. He just doesn't in...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

That's too bad about Apeface. I was looking forward to him. I saw one at a comic shop and was dissapointed in how much splotchy gray weathering there was. Visiting family for Tanksgiving, their K-Mart's going out of business 30% toys clearance didn't conflict with the chain's BOGO 50% sale on TF, so...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've had some good luck finding exclusives this week. Siege Ratchet (Walgreen's) - A bit underwhelming. The bot mode looks good, except for the bland panels on the sides of the legs, and more battle damage dirt than most figures. It wouldn't be so bad if the battle damage was on the leg panels as we...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Impactor - He vaguely reminds me of CHUG Skullgrin, with his upper torso and arms becoming a turret just a little too wide for the tank body made of his legs. Impactor's far less kibbly in bot mode, though, with just the chunk on his upper back that hides his head looking at all out of place....

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Thundercracker - At Ollie's for $5. I now own 3 versions of this mediocre mold: Acid Storm (because I didn't have a non-kreon Acid Storm), Slipstream (ditto), and TC. He has less non-blue trim than TC normally does, so he's kind of a cheap Ion Storm. If they do a yellow version, I'll pic...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Vintage Rumble & Ravage - $20 seemed kind of steep for these. I figured $16 since that's what two mincars go for, and these are about the same size. These were the only ones left, and all the Soundwaves from last week were gone. So, I figure I can't wait for clearance like i did with Optimus. Carde...

Re: TF Nation 2019

No yet, the stickers weren't in the box, and he's a bit green without them. So once reprolabbles arrive I'll be having a crack. No instructions either, so hopefully he's a simple lad. Encore is the G1 mold, right? Most of the transformations are pretty easy to figure out without instructions, excep...
