1.....Need to get rid of that detailed face sculpt and add a very vague blocky Sunglass/face mask with as few details as possible.
2. Make sure the colors are bright red, white and yellow and make it pop like an 80s cartoon or a Coach Purse.
3. Too much detailed lining and sophistication. Really need to take a brillo pad or some sand paper to the entire gestalt and make it smooth like a robot made up of wooden children's blocks.
You know what, it really just needs to be made into a cheap Jumbo Action Master figure. Like this devastator here. And might as well remove that complicated transformation, I'm to dumb and will most likely mis-transform it. Just make sure it has articulation. Or I can just print some cheap parts off of shapeways and make it look as comically cheap as possible, like an 80s cartoon on a reduced budget. Like this here perfect rendition of Devastator brought to life.....
Ok, I'm being sarcastic. I love this updated Superion. Instead of trying to find ways to "downgrade" it into something G1, just go buy Zeta's version (Zeta is pretty close to G1 with updated details) and leave this work of art alone please. Thank you.
Or maybe you can wait on a Jumbo Action Master Superion.
Ladies and gentlemen I present FT Devastator
No, no, no!!! You guys are all so very wrong! Didn't any of you learn anything during the G2 toy line??? We're a bunch of simpletons with low attention spans, the colors MUST be over exaggerated to the Extreme! Need some bright orange and gold too, Just like the Last Knight Hasbro Grimlock... because otherwise our small minds will lose interest.
That reminds me, whatever toy company is making marvel and DC figures, thanks for giving Superman that sorely need Jet Plane and Spiderman that Scuba Gear.... cause, you know. Hoping someone adds roller skates to an Ironman figure and makes a tie dye War Machine.
No No you are right; THIS Design is exactly what most (not all here) Hardcore
Geeeewuners want to see.
As a Figure AND on Screen.
I also grew Up with G1. But People should get rid of that mind sick obsession.
For example, I watched the Bayverse Movies because of the CGI and Violence.
I even read somewhere, that some Parents were shocked about the Intense Violence through all Movies. I loved it.
This Superion Design here is Perfect. If Geeewuners want G1, just purchase War for Cybertron Toys.
The Market is flooded with these.
I am totally against G1, but I would prefer if DST Releases him in G1 Colors fast.
Silver Color is looking good, but this time I would also admit the Planes need some Color.
a non sequitur based on your throw away statement:
you know Iron Man in his early years, before he could consistently fly, did indeed use roller skaters built into his boots, right?
Still no clues on release dates for these guys?
Also, any interest in Menasor in this style, or is everyone burnt out on Stunticons?
(How did I leave out so many words before, I only wrote that a 5am?)
Burnt out on G1 Stunticons, yes! Lol! Looking forward to these and any other figures DST does in this aesthetic!
It would be difficult, because there is not enough mass on the cars, most of the work will have to be done by Motormaster. Maybe a 6 member team of Stunticons will suffice... The sixth member should be a smaller truck.
Personally, I would love to see a Liokaiser from them, and the good thing is that the only extra combiner bits will be the combined mode hands.
If feel a little bit betrayed by DST.
I put my Pre Order Deposit
at ShowZStore because I thought he would be Released in his Traditional Colors first.
I want some Clarification from DST.
- Which Version will be Released first?
- Would it not be better to add something like "Chrome" or the Color Scheme to their Product Name?
- People could be confused when Pre Order
Like: there will be a G1 Color also...
which Version did I Pre Order.
In this Case I really Demand an Answer from DST. Clarification.
WHEN to they Release
the Chrome Version
WHEN do they want to Release the G1 Color Version.
A simple "Soon" is not enough for me.
...since the word "soon" can also mean
Release in 3 Years (Looking at Toyworld)
Maybe don't preorder things before there is full information available?
Another thing that makes me angry.
I could just say to people here all the time
"STOP BEING GREEDY"
Because that is the truth.
If I do not pre Order, things are sold out so fast. I know, because I did not pre Order
Cang Toys Rampage at ShowZ.
And when I wanted to purchase him -
sold out. Had to buy at Ebay.
So Pre Order needs to be done, because things are sold out so fast...only because People can not control their Greed.
Is it me or is someone jumping the gun with such little info that we have?
- The only version we've seen is the chrome. The G1 colored one was a digibash, and there has been no official word of such also being made.
- ShowZ puts up pre-orders WAY early just because they can. They're absolutely not a measure of something being imminent.
May 2021. That's all we know for a release date, and that's when we'll likely get at least the first member. Still feel free to put your deposit in now, but be ready to sit pretty for a good while.
They have confirmed G1 Colors in Chat.
They said "sooner or later"
I would prefer if they speed up their
"sooner" a little bit. Do not want to wait 3 Years for a Repaint.
This is a confirmation, that there will be more than 1 color Variation.
But they really should reconsider to Release G1 Colors first, or if possible with a Release close to each other. Other 3P Comps always do that.
Normally it does only take
a few Months to do the Repaint and push it out fast, after the Original Release.
Oh shit they actually did, my apologies.
By that, I expect the Chrome to still come out first. Though it would be outlandish for a 3 year wait. I'd say 2 at most, though 1 would make perfect sense.
-SHRUG- ... I actually like that Devastator. Its too simplistic to go on my MP shelf, and I wouldn't be paying FT level prices for it, but it's a pretty cool representation of the character as seen in the original cartoons, and that is where 100% of my nostalgia and love for the brand comes from. G1 Toys? meh. Marvel comics? nah. But that 80's cartoon is what Transformers will always be about for me.
It's no different to my eye than a Batman Animated Series figurine. Yes, there are hyper-realistic Batman toys, and no we don't think Batman was meant to actually "look like that" in the cartoon, but that's how he was represented and that's how many fans want to see him portrayed on their shelves.
If I had the space and the money, I could actually see my self having another collection of figures done in this kind of Hyper-toon style as an awesome "mainlining pure nostalgia for that ultimate G1 fix" kind of scenario.
I personally have no interest in Dream Star's figure because it prompts no nostalgia or interest for me, but I'm happy for everyone who does like it and wants to get it.
And I'm now half tempted to 3D print a big toon accurate Devastator, just for the hell of it. Download STL file Articulated Bulldozer (not Devastator) - No Support • 3D printing design ・ Cults
I agree, there is a place for figures like this simplistic Devastator. My point is, that I am very much looking forward to truly updated versions of my beloved childhood toys, like Hot Toys Ironman.
Looking through the comments, if Dreamstar abided by every Geewuner recommendation, you'd end up with almost a copy of Zeta's and Fantoys Superion. There are already 2 like that, leave Dreamstar's as is
The combiner market has been completely saturated with "make it as G1 as possible, make it look like a low budget cartoon" and I find this take on superion refreshing. G1 is great, I just enjoy variety.
It's like how I loved that TFC's Hercules / devastator used the vehicle treads to make up devastators forearms.... but that wasn't G1 enough for the fandom.
Would a little bit of color other than grey really hurt this guy though?
Well, waiting actually works sometimes. Like I regret buying warbotron, because the KO I have is bigger and better. I regret buying either, because I have the latest version of Zeta Bruticon. Because I waited on Zeta's bruticon, I got a box set with superior QC. I just wait now days until improved KOs, better variants, and gift sets/ second runs are released.
I want a Herc for that reason alone.
