All has/tak's Transformers are made in Vietnam now. been that way for a good few years now.
if you hate the screws so much paint them white for fuck's sake.
No they aren't. Inferno and Grapple were made in China.
I'd be fine with that. Fingers crossed!!!
Cute that they tried to imitate the G1 box-art:
Damn good eye there, brother! My first reaction to the box photo was that it was dull and uninspired and bending his right arm at the wrong joint was a boneheaded move, but I stand corrected! Very cool. Weird that they'd include his toy homage launchers but leave them out for the toy homage photo, though! Hell, I guess it's weird that they'd do a toy homage for the anime repaint, but I still appreciate the nod Best news of this show appearance, though, is the gun screw holes are gone! Looking forward to this guy!
Like you said, they could've done a better job of reproducing the pose, but it's a nice little homage all the same.
I know it's not a toy repaint, but then Sunstreaker was also posed on his box the same as his original G1 box art, so there's that connection. A really cool little homage I guess we'll see more of going forward (35th Prime posed like this? Maybe they'll save that for the + repaint!).
Completely forgot about this guy.
Hmm to wait for the US release or just get the JP version...
That seems to be the new gimmick they are using for boxcovers started with MP39. While interesting, it does make them clash with the boxart of the prior figures
Well, they will be reissuing them all either with a + or completely redesigned, so nothing to worry!
I meant MP39 and any other future carbots will probably have them
I'm in the same boat. I'll probably grab the JP version, but then I'll want the other + repaints...
So I told myself earlier that I didn’t need this new Prowl. Looks like I lied to myself. Went ahead and preordered this bad boy earlier this week. I figure that since the animated versions are Takara’s main goal from now on, I might as well have my collection match, so Prowl+ got preordered and so did Wheeljack+. I already have Sideswipe+. Now just need Takara to make the animated version of Bluestreak and all my Autobots will be uniform.
My Decepticons, however...
I’d be lying if I said Bumblebee couldn’t be a bit more toonified (thought that may require a new mold). Other than that though, I’m not swapping anyone else (from the real car series at least) out after Prowl and Wheeljack. I’m good with the other two datsuns and don’t care enough about tracks to change. They’d have to totally redo the vans as well to get me to re-buy.
The other two Datsuns are the two I'm waiting on the most .
Soundwave needs a + deco yesterday.
Seekers? We need NEW MOLDS. I would not buy + versions of that mold, or in fact ANY version of that mold ever again.
The head-sculpts on the Cone-heads are IMO the best TT has done yet. They are just hard to appreciate given the somewhat floppy mess that they are and most importantly, their price tag when they came out.
Sadly I doubt they’ll make a new seeker if they didn’t make a new sideswipe.
Starscream is a very popular character.
And the mold is what, 10-15 years old?
If anything, they’ll redo him. And you know what that means. A Sideswipe is likely not happening soon.
Where did you do this?
