ZOMG FORTY ROBOTZ? MEGZ JUST A TOY?!
If that doesn't sound like "misinformation" I don't know what is...

Especially considering the other more-trustworthy sources we've seen and heard from...

...plus the CGI of Megatron...

Nice try Micheal Bay.

forty robots?
Surely if you count all the dead autobots megatron is throwing javelines at in the first film there's about that?

Just by looking at the legends toy I assume the geriatric robot to also be Jetfire. the Legends toy looks as if the the robot has a humpback and a beard.
Come on and wind me up.

Dude just two thingies:

1: Never trust Bay.

2:
SPOILER! (select to read)
about those Autobots visiting Earth before must be fake because they didn't even know about Earth's excistence until Bee arrived there in search for the cube. That was after The Fallen was created and turned evil as I heard from Tramp. So Autobots visting Earth before is a lie unless it has been used to be known about by the ancestors of Prime and his fellows, but that the knowledgde was lost. Also if The Fallen was indeed send to Earth a real long time ago it would be a great to serve as his jail. I mean back then Earth was just a globe with Magma everywere only to be hold togeter by gravity. As we all know have Transformers a great weakness to exteme heat (Looks at Scorpy, Black 'n Brawl) so with that view it would be a good explanation for sending The Fallen to Earth, according to me.

any number or reasons could be used to explain away any possible plot inconsistencies... or they could just ignore any established facts they need to, blow up some stuff, and hope nobody notices.

its michael bay, not rocket science.

oh, and the leaked pics a few posts back make me think that this film is going to out-epic the last. i may have to start going 'squee!' soon....

The mould and colouscheme really works on Ramjet.

Not so sure about Skywarp.

Still - nice to get another set of Seekers on the shelves!

(Of stores - the closest I have to a set of Seekers are the four LOC Screamers [excluding the two new exclusives], and that's the closest my wallet will ever take me!)

New sale thread added with a range of Transformers including Masterpiece, Botcon, CHUG, RID, Movies etc.

Looking for MP-11T Thundercracker and MP-9 Rodimus v2 (Takara version with as few QC issues as possible).

New pics of Skywarp and Ramjet from an auction site:
Ramjet uses the Movie Starscream head sculpt, Skywarp uses the Thundercarcker/Target "G1" Starscream head sculpt.

The movie head mold works well for Ramjet. For a moment, I thought it was a conehead.

The Movie Screamer head sculpt works remarkably well as Ramjet. In fact, the whole mould looks good even in robot mode.

Alas, I fear this has to be the first total disaster of a Skywarp repaint (at least in my opinion). It's difficult to mess up with such cool colours, but I think that does it. (Perhaps better photos will convince me otherwise...)

Please allow me to introduce you to Armada Skywarp, packed with two missiles, a sword with JOINTS in it and his only plus point: minicon Thunderclash. It is is the ugliest and worst seeker mold ever. No movie-ish Skywarp could ever beat that in terms of being the worst.

No need to introduce us, we are well acquainted.

Although I am finally selling the figure, I am quite partial to him.

Personal opinions are incredibly varied in the world of Transformers (and, I expect, with everything else!).

But, erm, yes - that jointed sword was an eyesore. The things which really got me about it were the way it split up the Decepticon insignia, and the fact it left Skywarp lop-sided, without another wing. However, all of Armada Skywarp's failings were shared with the other Armada Seekers, and, in fact, he was one-up with a far superior (and appropriate!) Mini-Con, and (again, my opinion) better head sculpt.

In this case (i.e. Movie Starscream, G1 Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Ramjet), the mould does not work with the colourscheme chosen for Skywarp, Thundercracker and G1 Starscream, but does work for Movie Starscream and (oddly, given, in my opinion, it does not work for the other G1 inspired repaints) G1 Ramjet.

Go-figure.

(I must just have bizarre taste! :swirly: )

Ramjet and Skywarp look awesome. Would love to see them in the film, but I'm assuming the consensus is that we don't expect that?

Go to any entertainment section on any major news network, Transformers is cited as the biggest military movie made (or so they state) in regards to branches of the military helping. Excellent :D

Let me guess. Warp's going, but Thunderclash isn't, is he?

I quite agree with you on Warp. The movie mould just doesn't work for him. I think if they got rid of the grey, it'd be better.

Anyway, the raptor just doesn't really work as any of the f-15 seekers. Only reason Ramjet works for me is coz his original jet form also had wings that stretched all the way to the back of his jet mode

I gues i must as well have bizarre taste...:swirly:

Where the hell I am on???? The fact that for ROTF the scoutclasses don't have any weapons/gimmicks if I look to the Scouts we currently know about you'll find that only that Motorcycle guys has got a weapon. The van and Dead End/Detour/ whatever his name is don't feature some weapons and that concerns me.
