My voice isn't really girly, it's more gravelly than anything but when I saw these pictures I let out the most feminine squeal I could muster.
Everything about this I adore, I hate pre-order parts but it still looks fuckin' awesome. He's basically everything I could've asked for.
i'm not going to lie. In my opinion, this release is such a disappointment. There's too much of a likeness to tarn for it to represent fallen for me. From the backpack to the entire lower half to the weapons, it just feels so lazy. The only cool aspects of this release for me are the shoulder LEDs (looks like there are integrated missile pods that can slide up at the top of both shoulders and can light up but I could be wrong) and the flames. Everything else feels off/wrong.
Happy for those that like this release though, easy pass for me.
Legs look really puny compared to the upper body and that’s what’s keeping me from wanting this.
Still hoping either Hasbro/Takara or a Third-Party company does a proper Masterpiece-scaled Megatronus/Fallen in the near future.
I like the small legs and beefy upper torso. It's cool when they go with shapes that aren't just 'basic mecha'. Too bad he's prolly a bajillion dollars.
Looks badass, but not $400 badass.
...Yeah I think I\'m good with my Maketoys Fallen.
I agree. I also think the arms don’t work for the Fallen. Too much like Tarn. He looks like Tarn cosplaying as the Fallen.
Plus making the only weapon that would set him apart from Tarn the exclusive piece is a cheap move have it the other way round. Tarns weapons are the bonus and the Fallen weapons come with the standard release.
Seeing that the D4 toys release comes with Tarns masks I think he has a regular Tarn head and the Fallen face is just a mask. *sigh*
He is also the first release in the line that doesn’t look „cool“ to me. Bummer!
yeah....this just Tarn possessed by the Fallen to me...
Agreed on the weapon part. I feel that the arms would have benefitted from a new forearm design or even attachment. If it had it, I think it would have looked way better. That is probably what's throwing you off and making it look like tarn's arms.
It seems as though the faceplates are meant to attach to the end of the chain connected to the chainsaw? It just feels as if they had leftover pieces from the reissue so they just threw it on fallen to broaden his accessory count. I am clueless as to what the thought process was behind this release. It doesn't scream "flame toys" to me, it screams uninspired. Way to take a fascinating and fantastic design of an already niche character and diluting it to the point where it doesn't entice as many people as it would have if they made a new mold or even just heavily remolded the tarn design, what a shame.
Why Fallen doesn\'t have a Studio Series release? Even Grindor, who died several minuted after has already got one...
That would explain why he only looked like this the one time.
I can't look at this design and not think back fondly to the Maketoys version
Cause Grindor is just Blackout who already has a toy. In any case this isn't the same Fallen
People are boring, they just want standard beefy humanoid proportions all the time, these are mechs you can do whatever you want so I agree with ya
They don't want to get sued by Bionicle.
puttin the flames into flame toys
So you prefer Ironhide/Ratched without the head? Just so we are on the same page.
Bionicle is the BEST LEGO THEME EVER!!!
He looks like a Megaman Zero villain with those proportions
Tarn coming out moment.
Like Rung is really Primus. WTF.
