These look great...as long as silverbolts not too tall I’m in.
5, the last 25 went to quick. I woke up one day and realize I was starting to get "Dad" body....and I don't have kids
Ah okay thanks!
Overall - XTB / KFC is really my jam lately. Keith loves the cartoon aesthetic, as do I, so it's a good match.
FansToys usually have great sculpts too (and I have plenty of FT stuff, and am buying more). I think these looks really nice, even though I wouldn't mind a little *less* detail, but I think the biggest turn-off is the size. I prefer the size of XTB's combiners, and I'm sure eventually Keith will get around to Aerialbots.
And as another note - not buying any combiners period without at least some good rough ideas of what the full set look like in both modes, and especially in combined mode, since that's how it'll live most of the time.
If I remember correctly, dalianjj said Silverbolt would be 25 centimeters, which is 1 cm taller than MP-10.
I hope this 4 yrs for ALL combiners isn’t a typo because do you even know the total combiners there are in G1??????
Have they shown any comparisons with the Dinobots? Because Cesium is huge and I really doubt these will be that big. I was expecting somewhere around $150 like Blitzwing, not cheap.
I made some edits, similar to the ones I did for Motormaster, to Sliverbolt where I extend the torso and raised the shoulder wings. This is how well it displays with MP10.
Here's MP10 compared to both my edits.
and here are the originals
Bear with me, the comparisons get messy... LOL
Both Dino's and the two new guys from FT are listd by retailers as 10 inch tall in bot mode, so the deifference will be slight.
We haven't seen actual comparison pics, but @Dangard Ace did a compariison with MP-36 using shots using MP-11 as a common denominator.
NB: This is a bit of a cobbled together guesstimate and due to multiple pics being stitched together is not going to be anything like dead-on accurate.
What is known is FT Soar is same height as MP-10. (and how much does Soar still retail for?)
MP-10 is a fraction shorter than MP-36 (but close enough not to worry.) Comparing MotorMaster to MP-36 in ths shot, and Soar to the other Dibots in the pic below, we can see that MM (and by extension SilverBolt) won't be quite as tall as the Dino's, but still somewhere between half a head to a head taller than Prime. Probably somewhere in the middle between Prime and Dino's.
Add in the complexity of an all in one, Trailer transformation, (or a Robot, to torso, to Concorde transformation) these are going to be insanely complicated. At least as complex as most Triple Changers. The Dibot's are actually really simple transformations with significantly lower parts counts. (also worth noting that I lied - this guy's actually cheaper than the Dino's evevn the much smaller Soar)
"The Decepticons are so incompetent, they couldn't even size their carbots to human scale cars like the Autobots!"
Word, me too
Even tho I decided to pass on Ethereon doesn't mean I'll skip everything,I would have liked if they had released preorders for Beachcomber and Warpath,those things look Sweet as Hell,why didn't they go up to or have they got to prototype phase yet?.Does anyone know?.
He will become a box!
On the one hand, I feel you. I've been saying that Blitzwing should look more like an actual MiG-25 and not some weirdo flying wedge with a cockpit and that was apparently a very unpopular opinion to have.
On the other hand... I dunno where the chunk needed for the bot mode and more importantly combiner mode would come from if they stuck to an actual concorde profile. I mean those things have the profile of your classic paper airplane.
Jets and G1 are simply not compatible, even if you look at all those MP seekers.
Sorry but originals look just fine.
At least the seekers look like mostly jets. I feel like Ditka and Gewalt didn't really try and instead fell back on the "well he was a flying wedge in G1" position.
Which alot of ppl wouldn't have any other way. A G1 Mp isnt a G1 Mp if it changes the aesthetic, that's what CHUG is for. I think the dx9 version was more of an update than kfc though?
DX9 is pretty much based on the Transformers Devestation game
But thats his design, like it or hate it it's what he is. We don't make Hotrod a Lambo in the G1 masterpiece line as that not what he was, same for changing Blitzwings jet, making him anything other than a stupid looking jet isn't a representation of G1 Blitzwing
