Transformers Capbots New Images

Posted on 12-07-2012 at 02:15 PM by Sol Fury under Japanese Transformers
Captimus-Prime
Hisashi Yuki, of the Takara-Tomy design team, has tweeted some new images of the Transformers Capbots. These new images show off the robot modes of Captimus Prime and Capticon alongside their packaging. In a fun coincidence (or was it by design?) the Capbots are demonstrated to be able to be worn as a baseball cap by none other than Fortress Maximus himself! How many of you will be buying one now for the sheer irony of a Fortress Maximus (or Brave Maximus, or Grand Maximus if you're lucky enough to own one) displayed wearing a baseball cap? Sound off on our 2005 Boards!

Cap on!

Mr. Yuki also tweets that the Fort Max used in the pic is a test shot for the reissue version.

This is, undoubtedly, the best thing ever.

Capticon will be mine. Wish I had kept one of Nikeformers....
grimlock1972
okay that crazy thing just got moved to serious consideration.
megatroptimus
Too bad they didn't give the 'Con version a Megatron head. At least buying the Prime one, it looks cool!
MegaMoonMan
Dammit, now I do kinda want one. Only if they're cheap though.

I can't tell - was it specifically designed to fit him, or is there just a big enough hole in it, or maybe they took parts off? There's a lot of his head jammed up in that hat, it doesn't seem possible.
BlueAngel_Bolt
PFFFTHAHAHAHAHA!
That's beyond brilliant! I might just get one now.
General Tekno
Yeah; I kinda want a capbot now.

...I wonder if Megatron Megabolt would look good wearing one, that said?
Backscatter
Need one badly for my Fort Max! Maybe for Grand and Brave as well. . .
JDK
I literally fell off of the cough laughing at the fort max picture. It's a headmaster headmaster wearing a... capmaster.

Count me as a member of the "I want a Capbot now" Club.

Can't wait for mine to ship!

Great now Transformers has become Team Fortress 2.
Emperor Zarak
imagine the con one on Scorponok or Trypticon........or Overlord
cdbenefiel
I hope it can cock to the left so my fort max can claim crip
MegaMoonMan
BBTS sold out, grabbed one from robotkingdom for $30.60 shipped. Not too bad.
juxtapose519
What is this I don't even.
RedAlert Rescue
I suspect they'd display better with the feet flipped around the other way.

You know what though - that Black Decepticon deco hat makes me want Fortress Maximus in Nemesis Colours now.

According to Mr.Yuki's tweet with Fort Max w/captimus, a modification (to Captimus, I assume) is required to put the cap on the Max. In case anyone is going to try the same.

This makes me less excited. I'm all thumbs when it comes to mods. :/

I know what you mean. Sitcking a washer to black Rodmius' knee was the pinnacle of my modding.

and I don't and will not have a Fort Max

Had mine pre-ordered for a long while now. Can't wait for it to ship!

Well goddamn it. I KNEW it didn't look right.

Now I feel like a sucker for buying one.

Oh well, saves me $30-something I guess.

And speaking of crippled Rodimus, I'm still waiting to hear back about custom replacement knees. When I hear something I'll give you a shout.

I take my hat off to Takara-Tomy for this bit of fun.

Did he happen say what the modification was?

Kinda neat on Fort Max, but I still like the popsicle bots better.
Shin-Gouki
If there was a way to curve the bill and remove that stupid sticker (yes I condidered Repainting but my first problem trumps that) I would get one for Max

I am sure you'll love your capbot once you have him in hand. If not, please don't be mad at me for being sure.

He didn't, and I asked him if it's a complicated mod. If I get a reply I'll report here

It might work on Primus...

It is not a complicated modification, only requires a simple cutting. But Fortress (Cerebros) ends up losing half of his body so I regret I can't quite recommend this modification m(>o<)m
I think MMM is going to be angry

That blows. Oh well, I didn't realize the cap could autotransform, so it should be cool anyway.

I'm not going to be cutting anything on Max, no way.

It's not the smallest Transformer I own, but it's definitely the smallest package...



Lots of sculpted details, both inside and out.



Note the pantographed lines representing stitching:



"Baby Mickey's a Decepticon sympathizer?!"



Transformation's fun, and the robot mode is awesome!



The face sculpt is particularly sharp, and has a lot of character to it.



Despite the kibble and the spring-loaded parts, his articulation is fabulous.





Oh, and the head is on a long double-jointed neck with a ball joint, offering the most incredibly-articulated neck since HFTD Lockdown!



"Hey big guy, what happened to your hat?"

The baby Mickey Mouse looks cute and boss with the Cap Bot on.
tekering
Given his 5mm grip, I dug through my parts bin and found some practical weapons for Capticon:



They're the right size and shape to be stored in his alt. mode.



I'm loving this little guy more and more.

^Make a feedback thread for him. He's worthy!!

popsicle bots i've never heard of those


+ i've just bought a cap bot from Ebay, dunno when it'll arrive though
megatroptimus
Fort Max can't wear Capbot as pictured. I got one this morning and it's physically impossible. The head is wider than the cap and even if it was narrower, there's not enough free space available inside the cap, even after completely removing the arms.

Hmm, hope the mod is reversable or Captimus will remain as is. Ordered mine at Toy Arena since BBTS sold out.

I doubt anyone will cut up Cerebros for this....
