Yeah so about the size of Primal.
Idk. Am I the only person of the opinion that Terrorsaur is not really on the same level of difficulty as DB and BA? He has mass to work with and should be able to get away with a pretty messy underbelly.
IMO after they’ve done Dinobot and Black Arachnia the rest of the cast is gonna be a cruise for TT.
A messy underbelly? On Terrorsaur? A flyer? That will come with a stand? I don't think they can get away with that at all.
Honestly I agree. But I imagine that his wings are gonna be messy, I can guarantee that. I think it could go either way.
There's a (Tiresome) thread for that. The -NEW- END ALL BE ALL Masterpiece Speculation Thread
BA is what four weeks aways now? Looking forward to seeing the box and finally a good look at the accessories soon.
The best thing about this place is the comedy factor and this thread didn’t disappoint. Thank you, brokebrain guy, for your post about the fear and shame of being silently judged by your wife because Takara’s engineers couldn’t work out how to break the laws of physics to make BA’s spider mode look better, it’s the funniest shit I’ve read all week.
I actually think he should have a clean stomach. Terrorsaur isn't like Blackarachnia where he's always viewed from the top. We get lots of shots of him standing on his hind legs with his chest prominently displayed.
Blackarachnia is still looking great to me...spider-mode isn't the best, but we've known that for awhile and I'm pretty sure we've yet to see it transformed 100% correctly. At the end of the day I'll always take a fantastic bot mode with a compromised alt mode, otherwise you get things like that shitstorm panel mess G1 BB v2.
I think both modes look awesome, the robot mode is where she shines the most though, little less than a month remaining. This and JX TM 2 Megs will be perfect additions sorely needed to the Predacon shelf
I agree with this! It kind of makes me nervous about Rattrap too. He’s always standing up, so an MP Rattrap would need a pretty clean underbelly too.
I'm not exactly hyped for this figure, rather I'm hyped for the inevitable Jobby the Hong review that will follow it's release.
Yes...I suspect he wont let certain aspects of the sculpt go unnoticed
He’s getting good these days. I also can’t wait. But I also hope to see it from others.
This sounds like an anime episode title.
LOVING BOOBS APPRECIATE BEAUTY!
I'm disappointed with the spider mode at this point. The sides are both basically 100% robot parts. They can and should do better if they want to call this Masterpiece. I see what they were going for, and I want to like it, but the bottom line is it does a very poor job of replicating the show beast mode.
None of the beast figure alt modes have been perfect by any means, from Primal's feet to Cheetor's torso to Dinobot being a mess to Megatron's hips. But she better not set a standard going forward for just folding up and approximating something. Why couldn't there have been a couple of panels to fold out of the abdomen panel on her back to cover the sides? That alone would have been an immense improvement. He back would be a bit thicker, but I want true transformations and accuracy in my Masterpiece line at these prices.
Maybe I'll change my mind in person, hope so.
I really think that we should have abstract Transformers now. We can call them Suggesticons.
The tagline can be: "The odd design hides the weird engineering inside."
"POLLOCKON kind of turns into something that looks sort of like a spider and back in 12 steps."
Batteries included, but they're not really needed.
I just dont get this viewpoint. It it literally impossible to be 100% show accurate in both modes. At least not without significant parts swapping. And this goes double for beast wars figures specifically. The show cheated. The designers basically have to prioritize a mode and in BA’s case it is bot mode. If they added more panels then they couldnt have made her bot mode so close to the model. Id rather have one slightly compromised mode than two.
Some people want a bit more out of the figures, which I think is doable. Just not necessarily always feasible for any number of reasons. Barring that, some people want more priority to one mode as opposed to the other. Some people don't care as long as it hits the right notes.
It's like food. Some people are looking for the perfect traditional sundae and some people are ok with a bit more license as long as it tastes great to them.
We'll see! After everybody gets it in their hands & breaks it. lol
You'd never expect Optimus Prime's knees to break but Takara managed to do it.
I think Blackarachnia’s abdomen in spider mode could’ve looked a little better had it been filled out with removable pieces that transformed into her weapon.
I still have her on preorder, and while I’m not that upset about it, I still don’t think the beast mode looks great either. I was never sold on Dinobot’s alt mode either, though. Unfortunately I missed out on him.
