    Here are some pics from Toyfare. They are awful.

    I got them from:

    You would think a magazine about action figures would, I don't know, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TOY! I just lost so much respect for this magazine. I would hate to see them try to transform a Masterpiece figure.

    That's hilarious. Seeing Rodimus there only reminds me that I still need to get one, lol.

    The thing about ToyFair is...you can't take them seriously.

    Oh, man. Someone should seriously write them. That's just awful, especially Prime.

    lol

    i only noticed the error with primes gut reading the actual mag, but yeah the others are hilarious too XD

    btw, with the exception of these errors, their visual guides are the best thing to buy toyfare for since theyve been incepted. theyve had editions with gi joe arah, lotr, batman animated, modern motu and a shitload of other stuff. great for those who dont collect other lines but like to see compiled pics of em.

    Toyfare fails at being a magazine.

    From that same issue, you should see how they consistently mistransform Bonecrusher and Scrapper as well. This goes to show how working adults sometimes fail to do what a 10year old kid can probably do.

    :lol  I love how Prime and Ultra Magnus are both transformed differently eventhough they're the exact same toy!

    Hey I had a pretty tough time with Leader Prime. In truck mode I cant get the two flaps on to of the cap between the stacks to converge. It took me over half an hour to do everything else without instructions.

    In either case, they're a mag taking pictures of these things. They shoulda done their homework.

    They know. The people who actually like their magazine have been ripping on them on their message board. I even got a burn in about Prime's mistransformation.

    Sigh... why does it seem like anyone paid to take photos of toys don't know how to work them right? The people who should be experts, the people selling them, hell, the people making them dont even get these right anymore.

    I still can't help but laugh at the pic of Leader Brawl in alt mode...talk about a mistransformation.

    I like how they botched Magnus's bot mode, despite the fact that that's what he ships in.

    I'm currently running on the theory that Automorph was created when someone asked "Hey, how can we keep retail stores from mistransforming these so badly?"
