Forgive me, who's this meant to be?
Minor/Repaint: - T.R. Channel Link
Channel Link. An OC that I made
Now if they could just upscale Windcharger to a deluxe. I need an MP stand in, as I won't buy X-Transbots.
If only TRU or somebody would import this guy... Anyway congrats mate, enjoy that beast !
Titans Return Mindwipe w/Fix It Studios FI-01 replacement Takara-inspired faceplate.
Looks really great IMO.
I think LG Octone has dethroned Blitzwing as my favourite Voyager. Hard to believe that I was so on the fence about this mold with Prime at first, though the Autobot Commander's funky wings may have had a hand in that. This tanker/jet lad reminds me a lot of Unite Warriors Streetwise, which is another figure I adore. Similar grey plastic, and chest plate colour layouts.
Hrm... Astrotrain feels a bit out of place as far as alt-modes go, given how G1-focused TR stuff has been. After watching Thew's Astrotrain video, I kinda do wonder if the ol' space choo-choo was the afterthought after all.
The wings are my only real complaint on Prime. I think they don't want Optimus to have wings in robot mode, so they gave him short wings that fold in for robot mode. Otherwise I like the mold a lot, stickers aside.
Grotusque works pretty well as an Alpha Trion body.
Lovin this dude
Another shot OF Mindwipe with the Fix It Studios replacement face. Love it.
I figure that these two are maybe the only 2 toys anyone not collecting the TakaraTomy Legends series should have in their collections. They are just such perfectly done pieces.
I didn't realize just how different the two Broadside Headmasters were till I got the LG one.
And the rest of my new LG arrivals. Really loving the Cab and Minerva, just wish I knew if they would have bodies coming or if I should just start to custom a couple myself.
Agreed, comparing them with their TR versions are complete night and day scenerios.
Purchased! Thank you for the heads up.
So this is how Titans Returns ends. Not with a protest but with a wailing and gnashing of teeth!
I know I am very late to the party, but I have been going through this set so far.
I have to say, maybe I have been a way for while, but I think TR may be one of the best lines Hasbro has done thus far. Granted I opened like 6 figures so far and haven't gotten through the repaints yet, but from what I have opened, I am HIGHLY impressed. QC issues aside, there is all types of goodness here.
The Triple Changers were all great. Sure one mode may have suffered or whatever, but each one was a big win, and looked the part. So the Voyagers were GREAT!
I am up to the deluxes now, and I have to say that you can really see the love for Transformers from these designers. There are small touches that just show the respect and appreciation for each of the figures. For instance, Perceptor is pure win, and the "easter egg" tank mode, while may not be perfect is G1 perfect for me. Then with Blurr, besides being a great figure, he had those flip up feet to easily put him in runnings posses and have him keep his balance in those poses. Then Kups transformation is pure genius, they did some voodoo with those legs.
Just win after win after win.
