    Then why follow FT threads if you want less information? It’s not like reveals eat up FT Production time. It’s helpful to know their future character direction.

    That's why I could never get into the Japanese Pantsmasters cartoon. It got very uncomfortable when Arcee started wearing Daniel. :p

    • Tom Cruise as LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell.
    • Kelly McGillis as Charlotte "Charlie" Blackwood. ...
    • Val Kilmer as LT Tom "Iceman" Kazansky.
    • Anthony Edwards as LTJG Nick "Goose" Bradshaw.
    • Tom Skerritt as CDR Mike "Viper" Metcalf.
    • Michael Ironside as LCDR Rick "Jester" Heatherly.
    • John Stockwell as LT Bill "Cougar" Cortell



    If fanstoys establishes a pattern of naming individual bots of combiner teams after appropriately selected movie franchise teams names. I’m going to have to tip my fedora to @dalianjj

    With Iceman I would prefer to see his tail fins/vertical stabilisers in robot mode to be higher up the body. In his action shots you can see that he cannot bend his legs without tilting the the fins back. If only they would have been able to keep the structure in robot mode as the original teaser pics (seen below) where the wings were higher up the body. If it were in any way possible to even move them further up (like to mid-thigh) that would be ideal for me.

    Dammit, you're right. It's hard to remember all the petty arguments.

    :lolol 

    The other problem is that, while it looks pretty cool, it doesn't look like any g1 characters. I mean it bears more than a passing resemblance to Computron but it's pretty far off from the g1 version of him. So yeah, it can be done and done well but good luck doing that AND making them look g1.

    Yeah, I'm thinking it's almost time for me to get out off the game or at least slow down quite a bit. Wanna finish my zeta Aerialbots and get the xtb Stunticons. Other than that, there's only a handful of currently released or announced figures that I want and I could see myself being content to end it there.

    And even if they could make the bots looking like the technobots, the combined form would still have been very different from Computron given the different transformation, so probably it was pointless.
    In the end, if we want G1, we are still bound by G1 limitations.

    No to Goose or Charlie. Goose is a RIO and Charlie was hot. Iirc the rest were pilots.

    Yeah, I started this MP hobby back in the summer of 2014 with Scoria, Lambor and Prowl...and seem to have been making purchases every month since then. No regrets, but I think I will have every box checked on my ideal collection of MPs after I get my two sets of these guys.

    Like you (other than than the combiners announced/coming out now) nothing much is catching my eye anymore. The exception will be if improvements (and/or official versions ) of my top 5-6 characters* come out in the future....THAT is my only caveat :) 

    (*Grimlock, Prowl, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Skyfire/Jetfire, and the Aerialbots)

    Phew, it's just 10 bucks ;)  No worries then about pricing.

    You are all wrong about the price. Do you really think FT would ask 5 or 10 bucks for these toys?
    It's $1.54 each. I already preordered three copies to display in combined, not and jet mode.

    Darn, it's cheaper still. My bad. It's apparent that dalianjj loves us.

    I already converted to pantsformers for my future combiners, pantsformer all the way. If it's going to "scale perfectly with FT-20" I think it's going to need some pants.

    Yeah, that's what's bothering me about Iceman as well. Not enough to not buy it, mind you, but I do hope those wings can sit higher above the calves.

    Zeta really pulled the curtain back on just how much we were over paying on 3rd party toys...
