TF08 - Transformers In China • View topic - 2009.1.19 new toy
Who is the other one in the first image?
I reallly like this one alot!
vehicle mode is sweet, but the robot mode...just lacks something
The only thing I don't like about it is the red in Robot Mode but except for that it's totally cool
Probably the fact it's completely unpainted.
You mean the lack of an awesome "Anything below the chest"?
Top half: A++
Bottom Half: Epic F--
no better way to express it.
I find it strange that the car is entirely painted with silver paint, black stripes and Con symbol yet the robot appears to be completely unpainted save for the head...
Wasn't Concept Bumble the same way? The only color diffrence on anything not visible in car mode was due to different colored plastic, not paint.
EDIT: Okay, some paint apps on the forearms and abdomen, but it was mostly black and yellow plastic.
I like how it looks, but the color choice makes it look like shit, IMO. I hope they change the red to something a little less vibrant on the final release.
The colours are awful (That red? Yeesh) and the legs look really silly. Car mode's nice, though, but I doubt I'll pick it up just for that.
Seriously--forgetting that the bottom half looks horrid (might be mistransformed?), the whole format of him looks like Barricade. Even down to the wheels behind his hands.
Now, I REALLY haven't been following much, so I don't know if it was confirmed which character the AUDI was supposed to be. Maybe everyone else already knows and I'm just coming into the picture. That's happened before...
On a separate note, I see a lot of modding potential. Too nice a car mode to be wasted by the awful lower body. Makes me wonder what could be done with him...
I will pick this toy just for the car mode.
Looks an awful lot like a homage to an Insecticon.....
when I look at this, I see that the legs are totally mistransformed, the transformation of the legs are too straight, if bend the lower joint and it will allow the black flap to fold down, well it's hard to explain but it just give it a look, and you'll see what I mean.
Looks like a rebirth of RID all over again.
I was also thinking insecticon when I saw it.
No more or less insect looking than the TF1 designs imo.
Which is a real shame.
