Just wondering what the fandom thinks about which Generations toy they like the most.
I haven't gotten to see them in person yet, but as for anticipation as which one I will like the best, no doubt, Thrust. Finally we are getting the remaining seekers.
Straxus, I've wanted a figure of him for years, wasn't convinced by the pics, but really like him in hand. I'm going to get another so I can put one head in a bubble!
The one I'm most excited for right now is WFC Soundwave.
Way back when we had the Q&A thing with the movie writers I suggested that perhaps the way to update Soundwave and not have to mass shift would be a car with a competition stereo system in it because those cars and truck can really pump out a huge amount of sound.
When Animated Soundwave came along and he was a car I was all excited because someone out there on the Transformers team was thinking on the same lines.
But with the WFC Soundwave not only does it have a car mode but he would fit nicely with my Classics collection so a big win for me since I get both the robot mode and alt modes I was wanting.
i am waiting for my Straxus and WfC Megs to arrive, so right now, i got Thrust and Drift.
and damn if i can really choose which is better.
i told myself i didn't want the WfC figures. but the more i read about Soundwave, (thanks a lot, you bums, lol) the more i am tempted to grab one. he would look nice next to my G1 SW.
anyway. i am going to be political about this (be vague and yet safe) and just say, "they all are great!"
I threw my vote to Drift. I'd rather not vote for figures I don't have in hand and thus can't form a complete opinion about, Thrust and Red Alert are just remolds of figures we've already gotten (great figures, but stuff I essentially got a couple years ago), I actively dislike WFC Bumblebee (too big), and Drift really is a great figure. Looks great in both modes, lots of poseability/playability, obviously it has considerable redeco/remold possibilities... Drift may be a contender for best figure of the year.
I have all of them except Red Alert, and I like them all. The only one that isn't on par with the others is Thrust, but is it just nice to have him in my collection.
The Generations figures I own at the moment are WFC Optimus, WFC Bumblebee, Drift, Thrust, and WFC Soundwave. Of the five, my favorite by far is WFC Soundwave, with Drift coming in second.
WFC is just so much fun. Not only is he a great looking Soundwave, but he has a fun and easy transformation (especially when compared to his Autobot counterparts).
I only have the toys from Wave 1, and my favorite so far is Thrust.
Drift, but WfC Prime is very close and I don't have any of the wave 2 figures I want yet.
I voted for Drift. because It's a extremly cool race car. that transforms into a ninja wielding bot with a gigantic sword
I've only got the first wave, so it's too early for me to tell.
All though I like all of them.for me staxus/darmount stands out.clip on weapons
Awesome halftrack mode.turret mode is not bad.robot mode is posable to about any pose I can think of
Axe is cool.seperate the axe pieces and you got a boomerang and a mace.he can also use it as a rifle.
The play value in him is impressive for a deluxe. They got his first toy right.I like him so much I'm problably buying the repaint/remold into skullgrin
Only have the first wave, but Drit is easily the winner. Judging by pics of the next wave Drift will still be king. Straxus still looks cool though.
Drift!!!! Hail the empire of the sun.
I have Darkmount Straxus and WFC Megatron on pre-order, they'll probably dominate Drift as the superior Generation toys.
I just bought Darkmount Straxus and WFC Megatron and I have to say these figures do take the lead than Wave 1 Generations. Although Drift is the best from Wave 1.
As I already have Henkei Thrust and Red of my own from before I'm voting for Drift. He's quite an enjoyable figure, IMO. I've yet to full explore WFC Bumblebee so I can't really say and as far as WFC Soundwave goes I don't have him in hand so Drift it is.
WfC Prime for me. Drift's good, but not great. The lower leg/foot design hampers his posability, as do the shoulders.
of the 4 i own , that being the first wave of WFC Prime and BB, Drift and Thrust.
I like them all equally.
THIS. I got Thrust in my POL at BBTS. The seekers, Red Alert, whatever G1 characters is what I love the most.
