Is this the first time we've seen Powertrain and Highjump in the plastic?
Ugh. I didn't want to buy another Nitro (I snagged three of the original for troop-building purposes, plus Thundercracker), but that deco actually looks pretty damned nice, IMO...
+1, KSI Boss looks
Also, loving the Micromasters overall, but I hate that they're coming out so slowly. Coupled with the fact that they're only released in two-packs as opposed to the original four, the current pace feels so anemic. With them being small and cheap, it really feels like Hasbro should be flooding the shelves with them and the Battle Masters, just like they're doing with the Bot Bots.
Totally forgot Powertrain and Highjump had been revealed before, so this set was practically news to me.
Highjump? So I'm guessing he likes Mario games?
Def in on long haul since, looks great and is obviously needed for devy.
Doubt I’ll touch another micromaster unless it turns out really special though. I’m happy with the cassettes and maybe the planes, but I’m not feeling the rest of them. They just aren’t good enough, think I actually prefer the originals which I still have.
Y'know, I would'a bought KSI Boss... If they gave him the correct head...
Long Haul is instabuy, though. I've wanted a movie accurate Long Haul for a decade now.
I can't make out the Division-Unit-Rank sigils behind Powertrain and Highjump. Ground Command is obvious, but the unit looks like it could be either Infantry or Special Ops. They block too much to really see it And the rank is just completely blocked by their legs.
Okay i kinda like Long Haul box.
I would like long haul preorders, please!
how come theres no robot or vehicle mode offical images?
Micromasters: I enjoy Micromasters, so instant buy. Funny how Longhauler's alt mode looks like PCC Huffer's.
Long Haul: Pass. I like the original better. Working pistons, massive, better alt mode...
KSI Boss: Instant buy. The Nitro mold is fantastic, so the more the merrier.
You mean these that were revealed back in october and February respectively
While there are those things, the original toy was too lanky, and failed to capture the stout, tank-ish build of Josh Nizzi's art. This version is way more accurate, if slightly simplified, mechanically. Plus, Devastator.
Glad to see the candy corn zombie botbot is fairly common, he's pretty great looking.
I'm really wanting to like the Micromasters, but aside from the planes and the cassettes, they are just not appealing to me.
Eh, I guess there's that. I just like the toy a lot more overall. I'm also not interested in building the Combiner, so don't need it for a bigger purpose.
I think I would have liked the Micromasters better if they didn’t have the combining gimmick. I feel like some compromises had to be made to make them combine when really all they had to do was make articulated versions of the G1 ones.
I can appreciate that. While the toy takes a hit for its inaccuracies, it was certainly impressive looking due to the sheer depth of its mechanic details as a result of the functioning arm pistons, and the actual folding handrail guards on the thighs. Those bits certainly don't look as impressive when they're just molded in-place.
Overall, I don't feel like they've been too compromised by the gimmick. Biggest losses I've seen are Big Shot's short Howitzer barrel, and Blackjack's inaccurate chest. Although I do suppose it's unfortunate that they fall victim to modern mold-reuse practices.
I've been disappointed overall with Siege Micromasters but I remember having both of those original Micromasters and I'll probably buy that 2 pack as well. I'd really love to see a Tote and First Aid 2 pack eventually. SS Long Haul is a buy since I seem to be wanting to collect a SS Devestator.
I can't wait for those new Holiday Themed Bot Bots. I like Bot Bots (especially for comics), but I never had a desire to complete any one team but I want all those Holiday Themed Bot Bots.
Are we ever getting series 1.5 for BotBots?
