is this a good thing or a bad thing? Im new to 3rd party figures so I have no idea what BMB is lol
BMB is a KO company. I dislike them as I know them for fairly poor quality and poor paint, but others have very different views than me on them.
Ahhh ok i got you haha damn. Hopefully its good quality and not something they put together cheaply made. I guess ill wait for reviews and if anything ill just pick up SS grindor.
An MPM Carbot price is (or maybe was) 70$ HasTak 90$ fanstoys, now Mista costs 150$, I can buy two Zeus Shockwave with that price
Average HasTak collector sad excuse, TW Deluxe Tactics Waistcoat price was around 180$ and his plastic is enough to produce 3 Mista, it has original engineering too
It is 120$ for the moment on ShowZStore and you could grab him for even less in May using a discount code (I got him for 120$ on the release day from TFS Express ) and it is not just a MPM Carbot but also 2 solid and nicely articulated minifigures. And for God's sake, don't compare him to Zeus Shockwave which is a SS KO (much smaller number of parts and a stolen design) with a terrible quality (easilly the worst BMB figure and I've just been defending them). Seriously people, go whine about G-Creation Grimlock for a change
Was. Mista also, again, has a lot of diecast and better plastic quality then any legit MPM carbot. Actually pretty much any MPM period.
What a non sequitur if I ever saw one.
You act like I don't also collect 3P and KO. The difference. Again. If I buy something cheap, I realize what I'm getting into and don't come to every single thread and whine about how shitty BMB is.
None of this is directed at you, anyway. I wasn't quoting you. Stop responding.
Mista has quite a bit of die-cast in it. I don't know anything about Tactics Waistcoat.
Seriously. No idea why this guy keeps bringing up the shittiest KO in recent memory I've messed with.
It's ToyWorld. Their plastic quality is usually very good and the shelf presence is 10/10 but they have some qc issues and bad tolerances or overall suffer from dumb decisions. For example, their BB Prime has trouble holding any included weapon cause someone decided to put his wrist on the tiniest ball joints. Oh, and the transformation makes you want to quit collecting
I have some love-hate relationship with them. (not to this degree)
the hamhands who hates comics and collectible cards? yeah also I've seen how he threw a hot rod like a potato
Wrong. He likes comics. Especially IDW.
I'm sorry to interrupt, but I'm agree Mista's overpriced. I bought CW-01 General Grant on AE for 115$, shipped. It's MP, definetely not carbot size, really lot of diecast, transformable trailer, light effects, great paintjob and articulation. It's like Mista overpriced, Grant downpriced and now we're even
The thing with BMB is that it's easily the biggest 3P company, and the one with most figures. So they have a lots of figures that give well and others that fail. But most their figures are way beyond OK, people criticize BMB for a minority of fogures. To begin with, they have one or two KO for every MPM figure, and the only one I recall being problematic is mpm Megatron OS, still they have the 1:1 KO and it's totally fine. Most their KOs are better than the officials. Then they have the OS of Studio Series and if I remember right only Shockwave is problematic. Then they have another brands like Transformers Element and Mechanical Alliance which are doing fine, and idk if they have more than it (they also have Legendary Toys tho) and I guess they work with MP and G1 stuff but idk right
Hasn't it been the case with most 3P figures?
You know, there are some cases which the MPM is kinda worse than the SS, when the SS is very good, like MPM Ironhide, which is a disaster, or the BBM MPMs which are not worse than the SS but look more an upscaled of SS lol. I'm afraid to wait for the MPM Blackout and it ends worse than the SS KO
And that's fine. That's what opinions are for. You're not beating a dead horse about it either though.
Too expensive for a terrible design.
Those MFs should have done Sideswipe, Ironhide or Shockwave instead, or rotf Soundwave which is way cooler
God, if hearing the bitching and moaning about Mista's price in it's own thread wasn't enough, now it's infested other threads?
So I was looking, and the 3D render had an accurate heli tail in the hand, whatever the name of that is, but the figure has the same tail blades of the Studio Series. And well, it has no weapons? A figure with 0 weapons is something pretty boring to pose. They should add at least the ones of the upgrade kit
Blackout is the weapon.
I thought he just had a rotor spinner? I havent seen that movie since it came out on DVD.
He has the rotor spinner, the weapon in the chest, in the military base he shot shockwaves with his hands (idk if id had weapons) and I guess his hand was going to transform when Lenox and his men start to aim on him in the final fight
He actually has the machine gun in the movie tho
I think he was looking at the marking laser. He already had the propeller weapon on his arms
