1:1 scale Huffer.
No early video reviews of any of the newly leaked bots yet?
And that's why I bought nothing from Siege and only two things from Earthrise. But I want every Beast Wars toy form Kingdom.
I've gotta say while I've been buying Transformers since forever, I'd have to agree that WFC and to an extent a chunk of the Masters series has been the best Transformers in terms of refreshing the the G1 transformers and they've been wonderful!
I do feel for people who say they are sick of G1 but at the same time, I'd like them to wait until we get the similar love to characters like Sureshot, Slapdash, Pointblank, Joyride, Firecons, Triggerbots/cons etc. because I honestly feel that if we don't get them now, we will never get them.
Beast Wars is about to get a new animated movie, Bayverse toys will be around for a long time, apart from the '84 -'86 cast those later G1 figures will get forgotten.
I'll be forever grateful for the new Flywheels, Abominus, P/CP and clones but after thinking we'd never get them, MAN I want them to finish what they started.
I totally want all the G1 mini bots redone with this closer to animation accurate style, scale in bot mode and better articulation,
So a Powerglide the size of the new warpath, Brawn, Gears ect ect
As I've mentioned before I was a masterpiece only guy and know several people who for years we just looked at tf chug figures and thought "man most of these just look like S*** and out of scale for any type of display" and would never waste money on that stuff when other franchises gave you so much more for your buck.
This changed with The WFC as finally hasbro seems to be giving allot of the silent majority of what they want, hell we went all in. I have every figure in the line thus far, so hopefully in the 2022 and with ss86 line we get the rest of the season 1&2 mini bots the remaining cast members like blitzwing, blaster,perceptor,the insecticons, a smaller more toon accurate metroplex and all 5 dinobots then move into whats needed for season 3 and Japanese G1 for the G1 part of the line.
As for beast wars I know people want the toon characters but you know I'd rather them follow the japanese 2 pack release order and get guys like polarclaw
Ultra Magnus - Looks boring. Vehicle mode looks bad, and I preferred the Siege battle damaged look. Inferno - if he Grapple mold’s tolerance issues are fixed, then I may get him for a discount. Dinobot - yeah, I’m picking him up.
Where have you seen the vehicle mode? Or are you just going off the artwork?
Yeah, I’m just going off the artwork, and from what the leakers have said. If only the front of his cab has been remolded in the vehicle mode, that means not only are his hands still sticking out the back, but if the spacey rear end of the truck is still the same, then it’s going to be a severe whiplash looking at it from front to back. Should have mentioned that these are my opinions based off of the images provided.
Siege ultra magnus’ trailer really isn’t all that spacey, in fact I’d say it’s less spacey than the original g1 trailer
Oh when I said spacey, I meant it gave off outer space vibes. Like, the feet hanging out the back could fly under the whole “it’s a space vehicle, how do you know that’s not what a Cybertronian truck looks like” argument, but it won’t work on an Earthmode. I love the Siege Ultra Magnus figure, but if they aren’t instituting any changes outside of a screen accurate chest, no siege battle damage paint apps, and just remolding the very front of the truck, then I’m not buying him. But that’s just my opinion as of right now
If anything it's just more Robots In Disguisey
I'm not even a big fan of Bumblebee. I don't remember him being all that big a part of my childhood Transformers love, but I was actually rather interested in finally getting the little dude through this line. Finally I just got tired of the likelihood that I wasn't going to find one at my local Walmart and just got a cheap Chinese knock off of a third party version for about 2/3rds of the price who works fine. I'm good now. That itch is scratched.
My wallet is going to starve...
Titan Class Huffer confirmed!!
With his size compared to that car, we need a Voyager Huffer with a tiny little Hoist that fits inside the cab.
Hoist slug figure coming with Unicron.
Yeah, I’m good with the Brawn we have. I’m getting tired of re-buying the same characters for slight improvements. Brawn is good enough (for me).
And hey, he has a lazy partsforming shield, he fits right in with Earthrise!
I'm honestly perfectly fine with almost all the Legends Class Minibots that got done during the Prime Wars Trilogy - Powerglide, Brawn, Seaspray, Beachcomber, Cosmos, and also Gears from T30 - they're great figures and I really don't see them doing better unless they all shift to Deluxe Class, which I wouldn't care to rebuy them for.
Warpath, I have the older Generations Deluxe, so he's already out of scale technically, but I don't mind too much, and Windcharger I'm still rocking the RTS Scout class. Huffer's existing Legends class is an Optimus Prime mold so doesn't really look all that much like Huffer, but we'll have to see how this Kingdom one turns out. Throw in Earthrise Cliff and Bee, and as long as they're all relatively similar in size (i.e., on the smaller end of the Autobot cast), I'm fine with "slightly off" scale. It's close enough at this point.
at least brawn is a functional vehicle without the shield lol
