Kitty Bumblebee = very yes.
*out of breath* Why the fuck are these not toys?
I thought this game had Transformers Prime Smokescreen, but turns out he's someone named Swagger. Looks pretty cool, but he looks very much like Smokescreen. Where's the full artwork for Wheeljack?
Man if only the faces didn't look so animated it would work fine to me.
While I actually don't mind the quality of the AOE figures, designers really need to actually try designing these characters with transformations in mind. That's what I loved about Cybertron and TFA's toys.
Because quite a few of them can't be toys... honestly.
Admittedly, some of the earlier figures were definitely retooled versions of existing Prime characters... for example... Meltdown was clearly a Ratchet retool/remodel as can be seen from his trailer:
(Seems the concept for Ratchet is also significantly different from this trailer, which is in contrast to the more detailed Prime Ratchet.)
The Decepticon Dune Buggy was just a reskinned Arcee... and clearly could not transform into that given this fact.
Other 'Bots introduced afterwards seem to outright cheat in transformation, with the schemes just being a bunch of sound effects and parts just spawning out the blue for either mode. (Unlike various CGI TF shows where slowing down the animations clearly show schemes similar to the toys they're intended to sell.)
Why the fuck do these characters (in this continuity) need a million god damn redesigns? It's ridiculous at this point.
Bumblebee looks very good. Nice combo of his TFP and WFC designs. Optimus Prime looks great, but the head seems a smidgen to big. However, he looks like he could crush a Decepticon's skull between those fingers! Megatron looks a bit generic and his head's too small.
On second thought, Prime's perfect too. Megatron doesn't look _too_ bad, but the head is really small and off-putting.
Transformers Universe is no longer part of the Aligned Continuity and hasn't been for a while now, believe since before Transformers: Prime ended. It's now the "Generations" continuity.
So they can't really be redesigns within the continuity if this is their first designs in the continuity.
Easy there on the Signature size.
your gonna end up getting it removed by staff me thinks.
TerrorCon King is BADASS!
Pretty much. It was originally meant to coexist with Prime but the show met its end and nowadays its just goes on described as inspired by the show (the Autobot base, designs, etc.). At least, I think that's the story.
Emgo/TFG: Aw, so precious.
Agreed. His head design just does not scream MEGATRON!1!! He kind of looks like a villain for Agent Clank. He just needs a monocle.
while the head could be a smidge bigger, they nailed it with megatron, love the treads in his ankles and thighs..
|Optimus, has some descent G1 boxy going, but hes too stylized and cartoony.
Just a small piece of information here: Autotroopers are in he game.
Faithful to the design but underwhelming. Would have to see full design for further discussion.
Not sure how I missed Ratchet b4... but he looks great!!
all these are good. but i particularly love Ratchet's design. and Megatron's design just kicks ass.
Love them. I would like to see designs like these in the films, maybe if/when a new director takes over.
Hey when does this game move from open beta to full release?
