The same goes with FT, people are easily amazed by paint and size.
If your priority is aesthetics, then yes paint goes a long way. If I had to choose between a 100% accurate bare plastic toy and a slightly inaccurate toy with a detailed paint job, you can bet your ass I'll go with the painted one.
Some people are less concerned with accuracy than others.
I take molding over paint every time because I can easily paint over a figure. what I can't do, however, is add sculpting or transformation steps to a figure.
I prefer something that's fun to play with, preferably with good posing action.
I like no paint, and an amorphous blob of plastic.
This all day. I can paint a figure if it's underdone. But if the toy takes short cuts or has boring detail, that's harder (or flat out impossible) to fix.
I get not everyone can paint. But unless your Dr. Wu, you're certainly not going to remold new parts to replace crappy looking ones, or add new engineering where it got lazily skipped.
And if you CAN do all that....you're also likely able to paint it anyway.
Of course, I prefer to sit in the camp of "why not both?" myself.
Do you have any more of these?? I've never seen these pictures, they are very cool.
The wait to see Rampage is killing me. I need to see my kinky pogo stick
Hell that's oversized knockoffs in general
I do not, I think they can be found on pinterest though
The SS version is a partsformer? How so?
The cab/front comes off and hides the face of Devy. It attaches to the back of Mixmaster on the mixer assembly.
The SS version is lame, It's like they came up with a cool Devastator Prototype, couldn't figure out how to pull it off, so they just gave up and focused on the individual bots only.
That’s what happens when you have a budget restraint. I mean it should be a given they would have more problems than figures who have no budget limits.
not to mention safety requirements from a mass-release catered to kids at a lower price point.
SS Devastator WAS Horrible
Mistransformed at the Convention Pictures.
No...Overload was Mistransformed.
In Addition to that, they did not even have their real Color, just that ugly Blue Prototype Color.
Of Course it looks horrible when Mistransformed and with Blue Stupid Color everywhere.
So far, SS Devastator is really accurate
when you compare it to the CGI Image
Rampage, Longhaul, Scavenger
The Figures in Hand ARE Picture accurate.
So there is no Reason to Judge that Project now. Wait for the entire CORRECT Combined Form.
Back to Devil Saviour;
So far, People seem to love it
ShowZStore is again Sold out on
Mixmaster and Scavenger
If you ask for more, maybe they can add some. That is what i did, when i wanted to PreOrder my 2 Units of Scavenger.
But the wait for Rampage, Hightower and Scrapmetal Left Arm is also Killing me.
They must be awesome Bots, just like the first ones.
The big Question is: Will Rampage
have Red or Yellow Paint?
Not an excuse, plenty of other figures from the same line look amazing.
And I repeat the invidual bot modes are great. Its the combined mode thats lame. Its a shame they couldnt nail all three modes.
Do the amazing figures from the line have the same design esthetics and have to combine? Budget restraints are very much an excuse. Hasbro can’t do what third party does and spend any amount they want on a figure and then sell it. They have to restrain it to certain budgets and safety tests. There was no possible way to balance all 3 modes perfectly in the price brackets they had.
Im not comparing it to 3rd party. Im comparing it to the same line. Jetfire combines and has amazing detailing, same with Leader Prime and his trailer.
Ss mixmaster and the devy head are just sad. Long haul and rampage are great, after that it seems the rest were blasted out way too fast or possibly even had budget cuts, who knows. Doesnt change the fact that devastator looks lame.
Theowijg.money at something wont make it better. Look at DS Scavenger, the tiny wheels look lame too.
Wow, i am not a fan of his bot design but doesnt that pose with Bee awesome?
