I didnt mean id literally be pissed lol. Just definetly was hoping for it after how long ago it was leaked now. But i see we got no studio series reveals either. So another will be on the way
The mini bots are mwnt to be th3 same size. The potp beach comber was one of the few good figs of that line. And wcales perfectly with the other wfc mini cars
All very cool stuff, consider me in for Metalhawk and Senator Crosscut. Might get Shrapnel too if I see him in a store
Oh man ... that dino-badonk on Grimlock is rough. I get why it is, but that doesn\'t really help this figure\'s existence.
Metalhawk and Skyquake look amazing, at least robot mode.
They're actually not the same size. Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, and I think Brawn were typically drawn about a head shorter than the other S1 Minis. And then the new S2 Minis were usually the same height as the regular car-bots.
Kind of impressive that two waves in, the only 84/85 guys are Shrapnel and legends scale Thundercracker (Obvious Dinoking pretool Dinobots aside). Even from the teased stuff, the only new 84/85 figure was Beachcomber, Dirge being a reissue
My only nitpick with Metalhawk is that I think his cockpit/nosecone is too small in vehicle mode. Robot mode looks perfect.
Definitely getting Metalhawk, first of these legacy pretenders I've liked at all and he knocks it out of the park love how he looks in both modes. Interested by the teased G1 repaint of the holiday Prime mold might pick that up when they do that and Skyquake is neat but I'm skipping for the eventual repaints/potential remolds cause I am not a fan of those colors or head sculpt.
man, the only appeal of these Core Dinobots is gonna be the combined mode huh
Getting these all except for Core Grimlock, I think, but debating whether I actually want to preorder any. I’m getting kinda tired of always having a giant list of preorders, and I don’t think any of these will really be hard to get…
I don’t even think that combined mode is particularly appealing. I think the only appeal for me would be if they repainted/remolded these as Dinoking. That’s the only way I’m gonna buy these molds, and even then it’s not a sure thing, haha.
In a weird way, I was really excited about this stream, considering I'm only buying three figures from this wave!
Twincast looks as fantastic as I'd hoped, given how much I love that weird color scheme, Metalhawk was a pleasant surprise that looks absolutely perfect, and my man Crosscut looks even better in-hand (although I admit I was always a big fan of him, down to the red wheels everyone was so iffy about ). Even if I'm going a little lighter on this wave than I have previously, I'm still super stoked about everyone!
(And I admit that I might buy Prowl if I see him IRL, but as of right now I'm still content with my original Animated figures. For now.)
I now want a Deluxe Pretender shell for Core Grimlock. The shell would not transform but would have a focus on having articulation. Core Grimlock would fit inside a chest compartment of the shell. The shell would not split apart like the original did.
Nothing to see, but great to have it confirmed. I cannot wait for him. I feel the PotP figure was a great attempt, however was hindered by the titanmaster/pilot gimmick and made him look a little like a gorilla. So I'll be excited to see them have another crack and add in the sexy articulation and better proportions. Cannot wait - I'll also gladly snap up G2 and Golden Lagoon versions if the execution is there.
Shrapnel looks great, I'm not sure about the removable insect legs/weapons, however it's an interesting design choice that I don't think hurts the figure. Agreed with others on wanting his arms to be all purple, however I understand why the decision was made.
Metalhawk's bot mode looks fantastic. However, I'll have to sit and think about the alt mode... it doesn't quite work at first glance.
Mark is literally the pretender shell for Crashbar lmao
I can’t keep up with this thread at work and didn’t see the stream.. they actually talked about the leaked store listings??
Always interesting to see new bots and how they approach them, even if I'm not in for them myself. It was a pretty varied stream, something for most people in there.
I'm probably only a cert for Shrappers this time but I wouldn't rule out a swoop for Metalhawk when his price comes down a bit. I'm a fan of that Japanese style colour scheme and love the Cyclonus mould. Might get him down for a while before finally deciding on that one.
I imagine Toyhax could do summat nice with Metalhawk too. Let's see.
I was slightly tempted for Twincast as it's another solid mould, but have the Encore version, although I had been thinking about selling. Hmmm....
Please do not split Mark in half to put an action figure in there.
Nope. They just talked about doing "pipeline reveals" similar to other Hasbro brands. No mention of leaks.
