I hope it’s degined that way
I want THAT EXACT colorscheme.
Otherwise I have no reason to buy this cause I got the UW guy.
its ironic that if they do it in this color it will be more g1 then takara
I've been rethinking my opinion about some of these guys.
Hun-Gurrr - He's going straight into combined mode. That hasn't changed.
Elita-1 and Moonracer - Unlike Starscream, Elita-1 is a must-have, along with Moonracer. I did want a fembot combiner but these look good in regular robot mode. I was counting on Takara to release a set of fembots with a slightly different deco, so I could have a combiner and standalone figures, but it doesn't look like that's happening.
Also, I'm not sure we're gong to get five fembots in POTP, anyway. I suppose if we do, I might, if possible, try some part swapping.
Inferno - I was thinking about not getting this guy, since I already have the Generations Inferno/Hot Spot/Grapple triplets. But the more I think about it, I actually do like the look of this figure (from what I can see of it) and there's nothing wrong with having another red fire engine. It's also an excuse to get a second Autobot version of a mold I like. The blue one stays in combined mode while his red twin is his backup, along with any other emergency team themed Autobots I have lying around.
Blast Off - Space Shuttle Decepticon. I like the one that came with UW Bruticus, but he's staying as a leg. I really hope this is a retail release. I hate it when they turn stuff I like into exclusives.
I don't know if anyone knows, but here is the Amazon listing for Blast Off.
oooh! Might it be an amazon special?
I'm only getting this Blast off if it is dark brown like the G1 toy, not the UW caramel brown.
bayverse starscream can eat a dick
I've posted this in two separate threads already.
Blast Off and Repugnus are also listed at ACD Distribution, a wholesaler, which suggests they're not a real exclusive, but probably more of a deal like "May Mayhem" Quickslinger, Brake-Neck and Groove.
He might want to take a look at this
and body to oversee body constitution.
before he tries.
It is, it's how UW Shuttler was released.
I'm still hoping that Hasbro listens and Blast Off's bot mode is more like his mold mate Strafe's is since that Takara version's barrel chest was a huge turn off that made Hasbro's Jet version fine for me as a result.
This looks far better than this design:
As above, same design. Just swap the arms round and TF it so the opposite side faces front.
The only difference it the arms are swapped. Look at the arms in alt mode in this pic compared to Shuttler:
You can do that yourself by popping off the arms and swapping them, then the nosecone will end up on his back like Shuttler.
Yeah, I did that with TR Bumblebee to make him look more presentable in bot mode. But
for Blastoff I'd rather he got the UW Strafe treatment who actually has stickers that reveal where his front chest is, otherwise I don't really feel the need to be stalking Amazon and paying Voyager class prices for it this upcoming May.
I don’t mind the “beer gut” as I’ve heard it called, I just want it different colours and the rest so you can have two distinct products
You know, I kinda wish they'd added a 5mm peg to the end of Inferno's other rifle so you could plug both into the Prime Armor.
Ironically, I think a remolded CW Silverbolt could make for a nice Jetstorm.
I second that motion!
