wich toys do you like more the generations or hunt for decepticons ?
Since I'm into the classics line more than movie, I gotta say Generations. I will pick up some of the HFTD line but will buy all of the Generations line.
HFTD isn't really a movie line. I think of it as more of an extension of what happened with the N.E.S.T. sub-line, where the Classics and Movie aesthetics began to merge.
And I prefer HFTD since it has more classes.
I think the two compliment eachother. Some of the figures fit in with the Classics look like seaspray he is gonna be displayed with my CHUG collection when i can get them all on display.
Judging on the basis of quality of figures overall, I would have to say generations.
HTFD have some pretty nifty figure too, but at the same time not all of them are jawdropping.
WFC Prime? pretty amazing aside from transformation
WFC BB? I consider this one of the best 2010 transformers
Drift? 3 swords need I say more?
Thrust? Very good seeker mold.
Besides, looking at the next wave of Soundwave, Megatron, Red Alert, Blurr, Dirge, and Darkmount all of them are very impressive from first hand reviews.
In other words, generations seems to be like classics, where almost all of its molds are simply, amazing.
Aside from Human Alliance, right now Generations has the better figs IMO.
Honestly I'm pretty burnt out when it comes to movie figures. Display wise my Classics Autobot/Decepticons outnumber all the others except BW. So far I have Drift and WFC Prime. WFC Megatron will most likely be the last one for a while.
Unless there is a Maximal, Predacon, or Vehicon figure in the Generations line. I'm not even bothering with that line. So I'll be picking though the HFTD series instead.
Out of the figures I have from each line right now (wave 1 of generations, new mold wave 1 of HFTD aside from repaints), I'll just look at deluxes to be fair. and HFTD wins for me. BB Bumblebee and Ironhide are a lot more fun than the WFC Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, and Thrust.
But they're all still cool.
As much as I really like Wave 1 of Generations; Leader SS wasn't in it, so I'm going HFTD just because of SS. Love that figure.
I like both toy lines equally.
The only figure I have from either is Legends Rampage.....
Though, of all the stuff on store shelves, I'm more interested in Generations (sans Leader Screamer).
That's a lot of thrusting if you know what I mean
Oooo.... ahhh.. uhhh...
Let's compare by waves, and keep it to Voyagers and Deluxes:
WFC Cybertronian Bumblebee
WFC Cybertronian Optimus Prime
Battle Blade Bumblebee
Sea Attack Ravage
Night Ops Ratchet
HFTD is mostly repaints, ruling them out I'd give this wave to Generations.
WFC Cybertronian Megatron
Battle Blades Optimus Prime
I like Hailstorm, but I LOVE Darkmount and Megatron. Generations up 2-0.
WFC Cybertronian Soundwave
The Fallen (Spear)
Terradive, Tomahawk and Highbrow are all great. This wave goes to HFTD.
It's close but Generations just squeaks out a win. Generations 3, HFTD 1.
Battle Damage Bonecrusher
Offroad Recon Ironhide
The future waves for me, Generations all the way. But there's plenty from both lines that I'll be adding to the collection!
i like the Generations/classic line more than the HFTD. But i did pick up a HA Jazz.
I'm enjoying both.
WFC Bumblebee and Drift are both awesome, though I don't like Prime as much and I passed on Thrust. I plan on collecting more of the Generations line thanks to Bee and Drift.
I have Battle Blade Bee, Ironhide, Night Ops Ratchet, and Sea Spray, from HFTD. Love Bee and Seaspray and love how Ironhide looks (but his size brings him down for me), and Ratchet is cool, but I got him at a sale and I'm not sure I would've bought him other wise.
I expect impartial balanced commentary, taking into account the fact that both lines have a few duds.
Generations for me. I'm a little burnt on movie style. I need a break before TF 3 toys assault the toy stores.
Generations, HFTD and movie lines in general do nothing for me, some of the Generations that are stuck in HFTD boxes i'll get (like grapple)
