Yes, but people also use CHUG sometimes to refer to the low budget mainline figures.
CHUG is an acronym for "Classics, Henkei!, Universe, Generations" - basically the pre-WfC mainline Transformers figures. WfC is where it cuts off mostly due to the figures being smaller despite being the same "class" as their predecessors.
Definitely, not the same mold as U.T. Side by Side. Like many mentioned, looks like the chest is mis-transformed. Alien Attack would be crazy not to fill those gaps in the upper chest. Unique Toys = TF4 AOE Alien Attack = TF5 TLK
This is what the area with gap should look like.
Yea, that's definitely mistransformed. You can clearly see where the collar armor is incomplete, and has spaces for the other pieces top fit into.
wonder how they mistransformered there own figure hoping that they change the gap if possible
If you look at both chest plates they are sitting in slightly different positions. I believe these parts need to slide up.
I agree, but I don't think they should slide the whole way up, otherwise he'll just end up looking like Orion.
I think that the chest plates should slide up, but that there should be additional collar armor bits that flip out of the chest plates, and plug into the ones already present, in order to complete the collar armor.
That way the chest plates will sit right at the right height on his chest, and the collar armor will come down exactly as low as its supposed to be.
That's my opinion based on the design, as the collar armor is too high in the current pics. The pic below shows how low it should be.
It happens. You can find a lot of official pics of Has/Tak figures that are mis-transformed. Reviewers are often sent copies with out instructions. Perhaps a copy was sent to the photographer (in truck mode) and they had to get it to bot mode and missed a step. Also could be while handling the figure for photos something got knocked out of wack. Happens to me all the time when taking photos. Accidentally, untab something while trying to get a different pose when taking photos.
Overall, I think it looks good in both modes (Minus the gap of course). I really hope Alien Attack have stepped up their game and bring good QC and a fun transformation to this figure.
Just realized this is the true K.O.K.
same it looks really nice I don't really mind the gaps but if they can be changed Im hoping they have improved qc wise
Yeah, it looks like it should have additional collar pieces. If it doesn't it should. That detail really helps the accuracy. My first thought was that the shoulder parts on top need to rotate down to fill the gap, then I noticed the chest plates were also sitting low. Perhaps, it's a bit of both. Hopefully, Alien Attack realizes this mistake and updates with new pics.
A look at the 1st release versus this new version.
El Cid has a decent alt mode, but that robot mode was complete trash!!
I wouldn’t bank on it being mistransformed. Those notches on the neck guards can be due to transformation, not necessarily because something is suppose to fit there
Hopefully Hasbro doesn't crack down on these guys like they did with Wei Jiang. I'd hate to be KOK blocked.
It wasn't Hasbro that closed Wei Jiang down, it was Disney. So don't worry, you'll get that KOK.
Not to get too far off-topic here, but Hasbro is definitely playing a hand in it. I've had a couple of eBay auctions for Wei Jiang figures removed in the last couple months because of Hasbro saying the listing infringed on their copyright. Which is total bullshit.
Oh yea, they're for sure SUPER active on eBay!! I've had my own issues with them on there. But in the case of WJ, that was all Disney.
it’s changed a lot since the first prototype, but looking at these, maybe theres a screw pivot behind them, and they’re meant to tilt up more to cover the gap?
still looks odd tho
but can he do the pose though? El Cid can do it.
