Hey, don't knock Barricade's speedo!
I got my BA Prime last saturday and in hand his chest look beautiful and give many options... I think it is the best transformable OP at the moment, I also like the BMB ls03f (the DOTM version) but to my eyes it it was always a little too big...
So I'm still new to the Studio Series line....what figures are upcoming. Looking at the pre-order listings on BBTS I'm seeing up to shockwave SS-56. Do we have any announced beyond that? Sorry, don't really know where to look for this info when it comes to Transformers.
Welcome! And yes, there's some great SS figures coming up.
Leader class Shockwave and Scavenger
Voyager 07 Megatron and Mixmaster
Deluxe WWII Hot Rod, 07 Bumblebee, The Arcee bike sisters, and DotM Soundwave.
Past that, we have rumours about a few more.
Still a badass:
Thank you! Not pictured: ss32, deluxe G2 Laser Prime, and my DMK03 because it’s mostly in pieces.
He looks great i hope he can have the ROTF cannon arm
Who is Drift a retool of?
Great work so far i can't wait to see it finished
To be far, I paid so much so I could get him early, so totally worth it
So I have SS-18 Bumblebee on the way....but now I'm hearing some "meh" comments about his execution. Is there a better alternative out there in the SS scale? Like did any other companies make one I should be looking at instead?
Of the figures on my list I set out to get, I'm now down to SS-02 Stinger, SS-03 Crowbar, SS-09 Thundercracker, SS-10 Jazz, SS-11 Lockdown, SS-22 Dropkick, SS-23 KSI Sentry, SS-28 Barricade, SS-35 Jetfire, SS-43 KSI Boss, and SS-45 Drift. Everything else I wanted has been ordered or I now have in my possession.
Are there any you guys would recommend putting at the top of the list of that bunch? Which would you say are some of the better executed ones?
Thanks for all your help guys. These things are fun.
Of those I own:
Thundercracker is a fun jetformer mold, really love the transformation on this one. (I don't have KSI boss but he's basically the same thing so)
Heli Drift is a cool figure, I like all the different weapons he comes with.
Jazz is fun in a small package. Yes he's tiny but he's a great toy.
Lockdown has great sculpting but the articulation isn't as good and he does have a big backpack.
Crowbar - I like how he looks, but getting those rubber hair of his in position for alt mode is kind of a hassle, you need to get the hang of it.
Stinger/KSI Sentry - I like the transformation on this one. Although Stinger is the one the mold is meant to be, I think it actually works better for KSi Sentry. I didn't like Stinger's shuriken things but KSI Sentry's claw works much better.
Helicopter Dropkick - he's a fun helicopter transformer, but he's not a good Dropkick, the car Dropkick achieves that much better.
So who do you guys think are gonna be the follow up MPMs after Starscream and Ratchet????
I can see at least one more BB movie MPM sneaking into the lineup. BB movie Prime then Bonecrusher if they stick to movie 1 bots.
Blackout + Scorponok and Bonecrusher maybe? That's assuming they stick with the movie 1 characters.
Is it getting hot in here?
This is really dope!! I started drawing DBZ characters way back when, and from there stated drawing more detailed anime characters, but have since lost the passion to draw, cause I'm too self critical.
But this is really cool!! Please post progress pics!!
I should have mine in about 2 weeks, and I cannot wait to get him!!
Appreciate it man, and of course I will! Hope to see several awesome pictures of your BA Prime bro
Just got my second SS Scrapmetal to join the devastator combined crew. Quick question though as it doesn’t appear to point it out in the manual - what is the correct orientation of Hightower’s socket joint for Scrappy to plug into? Is it meant to be rotated out as far as possible towards the crane tower or left lower down? This would obviously affect how scrap tower plugs in as it alters which side of the socket he would plug into.
Are there ever any Cyber Monday Deals on any online Transformer Retailers?
