Always nice to see a coward out himself ... stay inside the snowglobe pal, it’s safer in there ...
Still undecided, but I'm starting to go back to Gabriel. He's got that Z-axis chunk that the FT version is missing. I do wish the head was ever-so-slightly smaller though.
Any pics with generations metroplex?
Must resist the temptation... I can't give in to the seduction of Terminus Giganticus.......
I am really interested in this figure if the transformation is less partsformer than Fans Toys
It should be considerably less. If you go back in this thread you'll find where we worked it out that the only PFin on Gabe was the back-wing tracks, the rocket arms, and the tank leaving the body. His legs appear to stay attached.
and as of this new prototype, the shins/ramps
Looks like I'm in the same boat. Fans Toys TG is pretty poor, and how anyone can defend the way they have engineered the backpack/arm attachment is beyond me. If you look at the video reviews it happens to some of the reviewers where they only have to apply a light force and it comes off. Very bad engineering, but you won't get a sensible answer in the TG thread as they are blind to anything FT does wrong.
Hopefully DX9 can comment on how their's goes together, and whether he will have decent bicep swivel ratchets unlike the weak ones on TG.
I mean, I guess that GIF would lose its effect if it included the 3 or 4 pushes before that where he didn't fall and Optibotimus kept increasing the force to see at what point it actually tips. Or the audio, where he says it's sturdy and doesn't fall on its own.
That sucks man. Sorry you're unhappy with him. I'm looking forward to seeing a Gabriel transformation video too.
Note to self, don't spank Omega. He seems to like it too much
I was doing that to all my figures last night, just for the shear fuck of it
Are we doing that stupid debunked gif again?
In all honesty I can’t see me getting either of the OS toys. Too much money and bot for me!
Both versions look great though and I’m intrigued to see how DX9 manage.
I do have CW Devastator though...
I do really like it that he could combine with Armada Megatron while at the same time as someone who really liked him in the video game with this massive presence and all I'd be fine with losing that feature for the sake of having a Tidal Wave figure that could tower over my collection. Speaking of the PS2 Armada video game it would be cool if we got decepticlone figures, I always liked their designs personally, especially the command unit. I don't ever see it happening but I just think it would be neat.
This should be just as partsforming at FT as Omega was always a partsformer.
He got a price cut because retailers were willing to play ball. He's getting repaints because he was always going to get repaints, don't let MakeToys fool you. He's considered one of the best by some, not all. (Your post is loaded with crap.) Actually, no research is necessary, all of the above are facts.
Oh and the one you neglected to mention... It was all a publicity stunt by MakeToys. He went from being a fully finished sample (suspect) to being canceled because there weren't enough preorders/demand (highly suspect) and then after the outcries of "No, no, we love you MakeToys! Bring us this figure, we'll buy it!" he all of a sudden is coming with a message that's more or less "Okay, we made it happen (along with the retailers), just for you! Yes, widdle ol' YOU."
Then we see fully finished and ready to go redecos of him in Thundercracker and Skywarp colors. Yeah, perhaps you should be doing more research your darn self.
Alright alright, calm down. Lets not have a flame war over this, It's not worth it.
