...there's actually more new then you might think at first glance: New lower legs (presumably front and back), new chest, new front and back wings, new head, even the nosecone has to be remolded to accommodate the new head looking at the F-15 version here... by my estimate he's at least 50% new parts.
Honestly not sure I care about cone heads
Considering i have the all 3 seekers bois ala earthrise and the chest clips are meh, and fists can\'t rotate
Another screaming face. :/
His face should be gray with red eyes, same as Ramjet.
Thrust has the white face and yellow eyes...
Good, I'll take yours.
they'd be MASSIVELY out of proportion if they cockpits where the heads though ~ either the heads would be too long/tall/wide, or the Jet nose way too short (which the Classics version was borderline).
I'd rather get accurate in both modes and nice proportions with minimal cheating.
Everything else is so good, I'll let 'em slide on the fake nosecone head.
Well, I like the screaming face. Then again I liked it on Skywarp, so I'm a weird one.
I don't understand why it's assumed it's a scream...looks to me like they're just in the middle of saying something angrily...
Bingo! Earlier, I was like something is off with him but couldn't pin point.... Yeah, agreed with both points, he needs his gray face and remove the screaming face. The only way I'm a fan of the screaming face if they also provide the neutral head/face as well. With that being said, I have a soft nostalgia with Dirge...will wait for the review.
please take the Phallic fiends
The wings look ok; wish they'd done more the MP route and had the wings fold on themselves rather than split.
That said I'm so glad they went with black instead of show accurate gray. I remember being really happy when Hasbro did that with Generations 2010 Dirge as well and it was one of the best looking versions of that mold because of it.
So....do we need Ironworks to use the hook-arm as a replacement? Aggressive marketing reached a new level.
I also hope the numbering doesnt come on the forehead/cone for real.
They should have just kept the old design from the classics conehead mold. That was genius how they made it work with no fake parts. The fake parts are BS.
What are you talking about? It’s perfectly fine! The people on the Thundercracker and Skywarp thread would have you believe that if you live in a country without Target or Walmart, you just need to arrange for someone to buy one and ship it for an exorbitant amount of money!
And if you DO live in the US, it’s perfectly reasonable to track down a set by looking up codes on an app to find which shop has it! Perfectly convenient!
You can see that in the Centurion thread too. TFW2005 business as usual. "Community".
I believe I just secured the Seeker 2-pack, but in my rush to ship to the store (I'd had it removed from my cart before for dawdling 2 seconds) I have no idea which store I picked as my local one. Should be fun to find out when I get a "Ready for pickup" alert (no, I will not look before then, it's more fun this way).
Leave Dirge alone, His life is painful....
I Swear if we don't get a Sunstorm from this Starscream mold than I'll rip Dirge's other Arm off.....
There is very little sympathy around here sometimes. You’re just as likely to be called “entitled” and told “Hasbro/Target/Walmart doesn’t owe you anything” as you are to be offered assistance.
Surprisingly, I was offered assistance first for once. I Will never understand how people project their own faults/positioning to others though.
