I mean, why do small toys cost more than large ones?
Because the less plastic you use the more it costs.
ignore the troll, that is all I am saying
actually, the smaller you make it with less plastic, the higher the cost for engineering to account for proper fit and tolerances of the pieces that make up the figures.
Ahhhh, ok, well is that I saw that robots such as Prowl, or sideswipe, or wheeljack is more expensive than Megatron itself.
I was being a wise ass...thanks for ruining my fun.
so does that mean i made you a smart ass instead now?
Transformers are like lingerie, the less material they are made of, the more expensive they are, and in both cases there is more than meets the eye...
That’s probably because they’re older figures.
Didn't see these posted yet.
Now that all the "basic" headmasters are announced or released, Do we have any info about Apeface and Snapdragon? or why not to dream, Cerebros and Scorponok?
Many have noticed over the years that it doesn't take much to turn Skullcruncher into Horribull.
But the "headmaster Jnrs" would be a nice thing to have too. or perhaps the Targetmasters - considering how well the TR ones sold I think it's pretty good bet people would especially jump on the Decepticon ones - but the Autobot ones would be nice to have - as they'd kinda be the 1st time we had a full set in accurate designs with weapons and full articulation.
But they could also do thinks like the Sparkabots in a similar way to their versions of Gears and Swerve released previously. Or even harvest the obscure like the Skyscorchers or The Trigger-cons. The advantage of doing small guys is that they'd be more or less in scale with the bigger toys and so they'd expand their market a bit. I don't mind having more than one scale in their products - after all the Minibots are still a little smaller than the likes of the Headmasters.
I guess if you think outside the box there is making things just as they look cool - things like the Predator Planes, Decepticon Stormtroopers or Turbomasters - especially as Thunderclash tends to get quite a lot of toys laterly but his minions don't & likewise with Skyquake.
But the ones that have existing moulds that can be used as a starting point like Snapdragon and Apeface as a logical place to go too - as for Cerebros - I think what might work for him is to give him a display stand for the head so he can double up as a minibust of sorts. perhaps the stand could be configured to work with his "mobile computer centre" like mode he has on the show or even open up into a riot shield too.
They were, if you know where to look
MechFansToys VECMA VS-05 Crocodile (Skullcruncher)
True, but I know some folks (like myself) stray toward this thread for comprehensive MFT updates.
i'm so getting croc. it's screaming at me so loud to apply some custom paint apps to it!
I been dying to have some 3P japanese characters. the headmaster JR /pretenders/target masters will be awesome. we keep getting the same damn characters reiterated. god bless MFT for their legends class headmaster line
I'm still waiting for Mech Fans to come to Soundwave, because he's one of the characters that I like the most, I'll have to wait maybe another year.
I'm still a fan of the Hot Soldier Soundwave. I tried really hard to like Magic Square's version, but just ended up using their tapes with HS Wave.
The Hot Soldiers one is certain much easier and less of a chore to transform, but the other versions do offer superior cassettes.
