    While an ss deluxe may theoretically have more playvalue than a marvel legend or gi joe figure, the marvel legends has a much higher chance of actually being good. They have a formula to their figures in which they put out consistently great products that satisfy the market with very few outliers that miss the mark. The $20 price point for ss is probably the definition of a mixed bag and can either give you gold or a figure boarding on knockoff quality.

    also to yall worried about the backpack, the only bit that's a backpack is the folded up roof. the headlights and windows are part of the model

    I knew jolt wouldn't look that bad. He looks fantastic. How I'm not gonna lie he could use a lil bit more blue on his face but otherwise he's a definite buy. I'll be getting Sideswipe too but like I said in another thread I'm not to hyped. He's practically the same with just a roof and more paint. I'm gonna assume he doesnt come with the guns? That doesn't bother me since I have the Dotm version but still though, it'd have been nice.

    As far as Jolt's kibble goes, I'd assume that he's simply not transformed correctly and that his kibble can be articulated correctly. For Sideswipe at least I think they just mainly focused on his do it mode if you get what I mean?

    Where are the giant car front wings and car doors hanging off the legs?

    I love the entire front of the robot mode, but this is what happens when figures get downsized. There isn't enough robot parts to break the car bits up!!

    I can guarantee that Jolt would've had a much cleaner robot mode if deluxes were still true deluxe sized!!

    I still prefer dino as studio series figure off the year.

    Well that's that. That's all our bayverse stuff for the year. We can all relax now.

    Seeing some leaks I actually want. That's a nice change of pace.

    Jolt looks great! His robo junk is a bit annoying, but looks like some of it can be moved around so maybe there's a better configuration. Still bought nonetheless.

    Sideswipe I'm on the fence. He looks good, but I'm fairly content with his DOTM counterpart.

    Now to wait for Que. Most likely won't see him till late next year or even 2023 is my guess. The new movie will probably the main focus in 2022.

    Both of these guys look fantastic!

    Sideswipe is an instant buy for obvious reasons.

    Jolt looks really good too. Sure he has some kibble and a backpack but most of it is accurate. And the bits that aren't accurate are distributed well enough given the difficulty of translating the CGI model to plastic.

    Just a shame that these had to be leaked before Hasbro could ever even acknowledge their existence.

    I'm also going to be taking some photos tonight to pay my respects for a certain movie that turned 10 today. :D

    Yeah, the downsizing has killed my interest in all the deluxes. I just don’t like any of them and they are just nothing but panels and fiddle. Makes me scared to see breakaway. I know he’s a voyager, but judging by jolt, the 10 year old deluxe could easily be better than him...

    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun


    A decade ago Dark of the Moon debuted! Let’s take a look back...
    [​IMG]
    Leonard Nimoy returns! Evidently Michael Bay wanted to hire him for RotF and Nimoy wanted a role in Transformers again but neither asked the other for the opportunity, so it was pretty amazing that not only did they work it out this time, Sentinel Prime ended up being one of the most memorable characters in the films.

    [​IMG]
    ... and suddenly nobody was able to see a silly joke from the first movie the same way again.

    [​IMG]
    While a lot of the plot points where tightly guarded secrets, the ads were all-too wiling to spoil Starscream and Shockwave's demises.

    [​IMG]
    Surprisingly, elephants don't die in this.

    [​IMG]
    "You were always my faaaaavorite..."
    Laserbeak... speaks! And is far creepier than one would expect from a talking animal that turns into a pink Bumbelbee.

    [​IMG]
    Decepticons take prisoners! Which was a hell of a thing after all the Demolishor debates, and also right before....
    (I mean, the 'Cons didn't keep prisoners, but still)

    [​IMG]
    "Oh this is where Optimus Prime just murders him."

    [​IMG]
    Wreckers and Dreads! The new rival teams that weren't.

    [​IMG]
    Devcon! The most interesting background character in the world.
    (I'm convinced there must've been more planned for him at some point)

    [​IMG]
    A toyline ruined FOREVER!
    Seriously though, 5mm ports that actually filled themselves in when you take the guns out was wild. They even painted the little plugs on Roadbuster so his 88 decals didn't have holes in them. Sure as hell ain't getting that anymore...

    They cast Swipe in much darker colors than the DOTM version so the painted silver really pops.

    Some, they've been able to get decent bots from, but some, like aaall the Wreckers, even though Leadfoot is better than the other 2, Jolt, B127/ Cliff, and Lockdown all have ridiculous kibble on them.
    I just have to ask... what the hell happened to the headlights??? o_O

    Yes I love it. The kibble is accurate, and the “wings” can be folded down. I don’t display my figures from the back 5D45F853-3820-461F-94F5-31E11AB4001F.jpeg EFD152A5-A243-4D29-981C-FAB04176D50E.jpeg

    I think it's purely how the toy is constructed.

    Based on how Swipe transforms, including the headlights would have meant that those clear bits would have been hanging off his toes or his heels and wouldn't be able to fit around his wheel feet in robot mode.
