It's because it was a figure in wave 1 that clogged shelves which in turn, led retailers to be apprehensive about ordering future waves until said Grimlocks sold. The figure itself has arguably the best paint job the mold ever had. However figures of Grimlock and the other Dinobots(who were barely in TLK, except Slash who wasn't even in it), were better served as store exclusives, not as part of the mainline.
If repaints from TF4 HAD to be in the TLK mainline, personally I would've saved them for the tail-end waves, not the 1st 2 waves.
I really don’t understand the logic they use with the figure choices for the waves.
They did the same with the DotM line.
They dump in a bunch of figures for characters that barely appear in the film, characters that don’t appear in the film, and repaints of old molds into the first couple waves,
while most of the new characters and molds that matter are left in the later waves.
First waves of figures clog shelves, because retailers alwaaaaaays order a shit ton of those and then the rest of the waves get poorly distributed.
Yea it's an ongoing and terribly annoying problem. The waves for TLK were poorly planned. This is how I would've planned it:
Voyager wave 1
Voyager wave 2:
Voyager wave 3:
Deluxe wave 1:
Deluxe wave 2:
Deluxe wave 3:
Has anyone found a way to combine Steelbane and Skullitron with the leader class Dragonstorm
Wow, been a while since I've been in here. Nothing super special today and I know I'm not the first to do this, but you can totally give Barricade a little height boost by mistransforming his feet a bit, I think just that little bit helps him not be such a runt.
Anyway, happy new year to everyone!
I implemented all the AoE Voyager Hound weapons into the TLK Voyager Hound
Looks a lot better in person
Happy new year,everyone!
Wow adding all those guns actually makes him look worth it. Not sure id wanna track down 2 versions of hound just to make 1 look good though lol
It probably wasn't intentional, but I love how plushie Prime is facing the wall like he's in time out >XD
Did anyone order the Veteran set for Hound? I'm planning to get one myself.
Was waiting on firage to come and be my movie figure number 10 but came across mudflap for €5. It’s not a bad figure, I jut don’t like the mechanisms involved in the backpack it’s quite irritating to be honest, but still a nice little figure. The gang is slowly coming together
Im waiting for TCP to get them in,so far its up but not available for order yet.
I also see they have Hotrods gun,but its also not for sale.
Nice addition of black paint on Drift
What did you use
Thanks, I used a black permanent marker that had a very thin tip
It's actually wonderful in person because he looks like he just got drunk and fell face-first into the wall haha.
Is that the new KO version of Leadfoot?
He let loose on New Years
It’s the toy house factory version I just colored his hands, and legs in silver and added red to his feet and head
