Whoah, are those knees buzzsaws?
There's probably going to be at least three repaints but that's okay, I'm really excited about getting this one. That is a nice, complex transformation and despite a very unfortunate rifle storage situation, everything tidies up quite well. Very much looking forward to my preorder being fulfilled.
Wow looks really great. Larger than I imagined but just wow.
I have to admit that figures on the video seems BETTER than the pictures.
What do you think about the really skinny plastic on the legs? It looks like they start complaining about it at 10:20. You can see it at 25:44 in the video. It looks like a skinny piece of plastic they attached the wheels to. It's the only thing stopping me from pre-ordering it. It looks terrible. I don't know why they would make it like this. What are your guys thought on that?
Damn, that's actualy pretty awesome, as long as it's rigid enough to maintain shape/not warp over time. I didn't watch the full review but that foot transformation alone is getting me mighty excited for this guy.
Yeah, that's why I think it looks like a piece of junk. The foot seems good, but the rest of the leg is like a plastic coat hanger with wheels.
Do you not have the original SS38? That same part of the leg flexes about the same
When I was customizing mine and trying to remove the rear wheels I was shocked how much flex there was. Made it harder than it should to remove the wheels.
I have the OS Wei Jiang SS38 and it's nothing like that. I would post a photo of it's leg, but I don't know how to post a photo here LOL
I don't know if buy this one or firescorpion, I liked the aesthetics on truck mode.
It's cool. I'm just saying the flexibility of the plastic shouldn't be something to scare anyone off if they own the original. It's flexible and doesn't leave stress marks. So it's by design.
I'm pretty impressed with the improvements they made with the transformation for SS-38. I feel like maybe they had to make it so big to make sure their modifications would be sturdy enough. Haha. Definitely gonna be keeping my eyes on this one.
With this many improvements being made everywhere, it's such a shame they didn't change it to be the correct truck. That one little error on the Studio Series toy is going to doom all Bumblebee Primes to be the wrong alt mode until the end of time, isn't it?
Judging from the posted Video i would say
the Figure is very durable and good Quality.
Price is 68$ at ShowzStore.
I have made my Pre Order already.
In my Opinion US Sellers and Toyworld itself
are getting Greedy with their Freedom Leader.
180-250$ is way to much.
I understand the Price Range 80$-140$
That is standard for Unique Toys and Toyworld.
But an 30cm Figure, as good as it may be, does not justify a Price of 200$
I want Quality, and i also want low Prices.
For everybody who says
"That is impossible to do"
> IT IS Possible
I have many 3rd Party Figures, that did not Devour my entire Money and still have good Quality.
So far, first impression, it seems Tactical Commander has good Quality for 68$
Some People here said they have the Figure in Hand, and that it has weak Spots and bad Quality.
Sorry but to say this
1) Maybe you got a Bootleg?
2) Tactical Commander has not even
been released yet
3) The Figure in the posted Video is an Test Sample
4) Maybe People got the "Star Commander"
Because the already released Star Commander looks almost the same as Tactical.
Just going to say don’t expect too much from this. Their OS SS brawl ended up not the best of quality, build and paint wise.
180 for a foot tall figure with that much stuff is far from Greedy. Look at Fanstoys for example, 9-10” bot is 170 and it’s just the bot with a gun. With TW your paying for size, build quality, paint, ACCURACY, and a massive slew of accessories. Here you are paying for a stolen/repurposed design someone else made and costs half as much to develop as a third party TF.
Yeah but with Quality i mean
"Please do not fall apart in my Hands, after i have opened the Package"
So far, in the Posted Video, the Figure seems to be Sturdy
and Durable with all the Ratchet Joints.
If this is the actual Product, it would be okay for me.
That’s a pretty low bar for quality.....
For me it’s solid non-thin plastic and well toleranced joints, ratchets or not.
I don't mind that at all.
It's not the toys fault, it's the movies. The few truckparts Prime has (mainly windows) don't match up with the truck at the end of the movie. This Optimus design simply isn't intended to transform into the truck we saw. And I won't hold the toys responsible for such a blatant mistake the movie made.
Luckily these days this doesn't stop companies from using fake parts and turning toys inside out (see MP44 or some Bay figures), so I wouldn't give up hope.
