Not everyone likes oversized figures
A lot of people do.
There are a lot of people that do and a lot of people that don’t. I say to each there own. Personally I stick to official releases. I can see why some might prefer an oversized and/or improved KO, but I worked for IP attorneys and I know how supporting that can be damaging to a brand, regardless of whether you think they deserve it or not.
FYI, I might stick to official, but my wife prefers 3P, so even in my house there is a difference of opinion.
To me upsizing a figure makes it look cheap, cause the molded details, proportions and articulation and stuff may work just fine at a smaller scale but look bad when upscaled.
Also I just don’t have the space for a million large figures, not do I want my apartment to look like a cluttered space.
Dats just me doe.
Quick note that after investigating and looking through photos, scavanger dreads from the vehicle mode look to either fold up or intergrate inside the wheel due to pegs and the circle cutout on the sides
Bring on BB Movie BLITZWING
I like some of oversized ones, but, you wrote exactly what i've in my mind about the molded details and other stuff
I’m so disappointed with SS Megatron that I ended up ordering the Best Buy exclusive of voyager 2007 Megatron. At least I can take the ice parts off of that and make it look completely like 07 Megs.
The ROTF torso and blocky legs with all the kibble kills the SS figure for me. I mean sure the kibble has to go somewhere but it just looks bad. They would’ve been better off making a simplistic version of the MPM for Studio Series kinda like what they did with Barricade.
This is the main reason why I've stopped buying OS figures, even if they fit a more perfect scale. Even with the OS Blackout, the details look cheap. OS MPMs seem to work fine, however. Probably because they don't literally double or triple in size.
I love the SS 2007 Voyager Megatron, but that torso doesn't even look close to 2007 model. Just because you can reuse pieces doesn't mean you should. The laziness is so blatant it hurts. So close to perfection.
Me when I saw Studio Series Shockwave:
The Mack truck mode was much bigger than the tank mode on RotF Megatron. So that was a ton of extra parts that the jet mode won't have. It's entirely possible the jet mode is "big" but not dense.
As for TLK Megatron. I'm not 100% sure how tall his bot mode was...but I'm in the camp who thinks it's entirely possible it'll just be a repackaged Voyager Megatron.
Yeah I honestly don’t know wtf they were thinking. Then again this wouldn’t be the first time they’ve done something lazy like this, just look at Combiner Wars Armada Megatron, It’s literally Armada Megatron’s head on a G1 body. Anyways I wouldn’t be surprised if this figure just ends up becoming a shelf warmer.
that would suck especially considering how long we have been waiting for a new 07 megs figure...ill still be grabbing him to complete the collection...but that torso UUGHH!
I’m so psyched for Scavenger. He’s one of my favorite designs and the opening scenes in rotf are some of my favorite moments in all of the movies. The Fallen shall rise again in 2020!!!
I’m guessing he will be a prime candidate for an upgrade kit of some sort. Maybe not the entire torso/chest but at least some added weapons and maybe some replacement parts.
What if I told you hasbro and takara never wanted to do 2007 megatron in the first place?
I would imagine this being their frustrated response to fans saying: "you want skeletron?!?!?!?!?!? here's your skeletron!!! Now don't ever ask me about this design again!!!".
Thats funny give how well they did the masterpiece figure
