So glad I found my Figma stand and can now make a shot of the Dinobots where Swoop appears to be flying. Was tired of him resting on his belly on the floor.
Bonus pic of the Dinobots with the TM Mini Dinobot.
Wouldn't be great if we got mini Sludge, Slag and Snarl TMs? (Snarl could be repainted into Slugfest).
To anyone who owns Predaking, could you measure the side width of the waist with the panels folded up? I was messing with Long Haul, and the width of his waist from the side is only 3cm. Was wondering if there's any major difference with The King.
this pic changed my mind about getting these guys. I have to have them now.
Cutthroat was the only G1 Terrorcon that I ever had as a kid.
Glad to have a new figure of him, and glad to finally have the whole set.
Ah, it was you, I had saved a copy of the Triggerhappy, Optimus, and Soundwave picture, which I was referring to in my prior post. I think that scales fine.
Another day, another Pretender that didn't get to do much in the comics and turned up too late in the American cartoons. Obviously you could go off and watch Super-god Masterforce and see them make much better use of the monster nature of these guy's shells.
Bomb-Burst is the 'air' one of the three original Decepticon Pretenders, so we get a bat shell! Obviously. I love Bomb-Burst's shell, particularly the leering face of that monster bat. He has the expression of a total sadist. Someone that probably takes a great pleasure in sharpening his tool in front of you before commencing the torture. Or Steve Martin in Little Shop of Horrors.
Curiously the inner robot has such a passive expression that I find myself making up some pretentious toss about about the outer shell being the ego and the inner robor being the id. You've got to keep yourself entertained somehow. That detail aside, it's just another '88 style Pretender inner robot. Though I do give some points for the way the guns plug into the arms.
And it's just as well they do, as the alt mode would make no sense without the 'wings' on those guns. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh. This is really no worse than any of the other Pretender alt modes and the detail of the fin that comes out the back of the head and the big turbines is rather nice.
I have to admit, I find the PotP Bomb-Burst disappointing. with him having such a slender head it seems to miss out of the best things about the G1 style, namely that horrible, leering bat face. But I suppose the head has to be based around the size of the inner 'bot's head, which must make it hard to expand it out. Except that they did a fine job of doing just that with Bludgeon and Octopunch. So, no excuse there. All that said, I do like how canine the new model looks. Just not as much as I like the original.
As far as the inner bot goes, we've got another guy that looks nothing like the original. Another case of 'geewunner' expectation management. It's a fine little 'bot, evoking Megatron just a touch with that colour scheme and helmet. Nice to see a bit of silver being applied to the face too. 'Megatronus' gets the honour of getting a 2nd, expensively deco'd with clear plastic, version. Looking at this 'special edition' I can't help but wish all the Prime Masters had been given the clear plastic treatment.
Can we just take a minute too pray for this brave genericon?
Wouldn't that be "Generibot?"
He is fighting against the Decepticons, isn't he?
"Says a prayer for Yeoman Johnsontron"
The Autobot we need but not the one we deserve.
He survived Devys package and is on to Predaking. Seems to be doing ok for himself. Tough little guy.
I think it would be an interesting game to see how many other packages this guy is on.
Can we just fan-favorite-Hall-of-Fame-write-in-vote this guy already? He’s taken on devestator solo, and survived long enough to go toe to toe with predaking.
Talk about being made of sterner stuff
He needs a toy on the double. Name should be Bigballs, perhaps?
I hope he got a medal for this shit.
He is the Bot! The Matrix of Leadership should belong to him.
Has anyone stopped to considered if that Bot is the "Leroy Jenkins" of the group?
A good walkabout and a ripper barney and he'll be grinnin' like a shot fox!
