I know, just messing with you. : P
I know everyone is desperate for a little shred of news involving Leader Class Blackout. I'm most excited about this because it was a dream since 2007 till 2009.
I feel the opposite. I thought Blackout was fine (not amazing) except for being comically undersized by any measure. There is certainly room for improvement.
I never even bought Bonecrusher, I thought he looked so bad (in addition to being criminally tiny). In fairness, a couple times I have wondered if i missed out and should go back and get him after all.
1 month and 13 days.
19 days till a potential leaked image or description from London toy fair. and with a booth twice the size as previous ones I have a small hope there will be something.
Norm West, it's already in the future.
Over a month just seems so far away.
Until I get my Leader Class Blackout in my hands, in the mean time I'm fiddling around with my Transformers Animated Voyager Blackout.
Well, I honestly have no idea how you can think that that unless you just hate bonecrusher's design in the first place. deluxe bonecrusher is easily one of the most screen-accurate looking toys they made for the 2007 movie.
Blackout meanwhile looked like utter ass in just about every regard. His legs, his head, his rotor, aren't even remotely screen accurate. And he's way too brightly colored.
One day I will find that figure for a price that's not hilariously insane.
Hasn't happened yet, but I'm patient.
quick question: are jazz and lockdown part of the new studio series as well?
Bonecrusher...screen accurate...? Um...no... yes his basic body shape is right, but from the weird organic arms, to the shots of olive in his color scheme, bonecrusher IS NOT screen accurate.
Bonecrusher hates being screen accurate.
I own Animated Blackout, and if I’m being honest, your not missing much. It suffers Lugnut syndrome, and it’s articulation is pretty weak, particularly with gorilla arms and lack of head movement
He definitely has a lot in common with Lugnut... but I really like Lugnut. (Animated & CHUG versions are both awesome, actually.) I've never been a stickler for scale, haha, and I can forgive some articulation gaps for the sake of a cool design.
That said, it's amusing that this upcoming leader Blackout will probably cost LESS than what the old Animated voyager is going for. I think I'll get this one first!
Thanks, I may cancel my movie best versions then...
Your welcome, though I will warn you. It’s highly possible that they may not be new molds. I think Jazz will be, but I’d bet Studio Series Lockdown will just be Hasbro’s version of the MTB Lockdown. Takara likes to milk molds though, so it’s possible they are just trying to squeeze out the last bit of cash from the original Jazz and Lockdown molds before the new ones arrive.
Anyone knows when is toy Fare? Should answer that
New York Toy Fair is being held February 17th-20th. Seeing as how the Studio Series hasn’t been revealed to the public just yet I wouldn’t expect more then the first two waves to shown.
yes, but the next wave of movie best toys is february as well.. Oh well....
Back on topic, I want that blackout
