Agree. Most of these figures look inappropriate and terrible.
Bought at first sight:
-Brawn (about damn time!)
-Kickback (see above)
-Gnaw (I realize this should be another post, but I intend on getting 5. Dead serious.)
Meh, but will probably buy anyways
-Hot Rod (need to replace that decade old mold)
-Percepter (I'm ok with my RTS, but we'll see)
-Sixshot (Hexatron stays as my top Ninja Consultant, may keep Hasbro's as an alt-mode)
-Broadside (not too high on the colour scheme, will wait for Takara's)
-G2 Optimus (Octane's really why we're here)
-tank Megatron (Blitzwing blah blah blah...)
-Sky Shadow (Overlord will be the version of this mold I'll own)
Now if you'll excuse me, I think my wallet's plotting to kill me.
Optional kit or not, they're gonna be mine!
Hyped for everything, excluding Op and Megs.
Sky Shadow, excited for. Overlord will be great. But my real love is for Thunderwing...I can't believe I'm going to be happily buying three Leader remolds, all decepticons no less.
Not sure how they are going to make a decent Overlord out of Black Shadow. Looks like crap for an Overlord. Going to take some massive remolding.
Is anyone else getting a Gats Blocker / Multi-Force 14 vibe from Black Shadow? I don't know anything about Black Shadow as a character, but I had Multi-Force 14 as a kid and will definitely be filling up this new Black Shadow with Dia-Nauts!!!
Whoa! So much cool stuff! Sixshot, Hot Rod, Broadside, Triggerhappy, Gnaw, Brawn, Kickback, Perceptor, Monsterbots, WOW!
There's even that Overlord-looking fellow, which has got to be re-painted/re-molded into an actual Overlord. I am impressed with the majority of what has been shown so far. Only Getaway seem rather blah to me, but there's so many good-looking figures, my only concern is that I know I'll never find them all in-store; more business for BBTS I guess.
I hope there'll be some hints as to the Predacons & possibly Trypticon. The Titan Returns line really hits a sweet spot in my old G1-loving heart in a way that Combiner Wars could only just tickle. After the disappointment of Galvatron' s awkward mask/crown fiasco, which required immediate modifications, these new offerings somewhat make up for Hasbro's blunders.
Now I wonder how Takara will make these figures really pretty, though sometimes all their extreme cartoon-accuracy actually makes things plainer.
Not really liking much that has been revealed thus far. Brawn looks good and so do Shuffler and Repugnus. Perceptor is ok.
I'm not liking what I see from Black Shadow so far and it doesn't give me confidence Overlord will be much better.
As for the stuff we've seen before, Hot Rod is growing on me. Triggerhappy, Twinferno, and Kickback look just as good as before and are definite buys.
Which has been the only type of remolding in the last two years of the line. I think it will be fine.
You can take a selfie with them in front of your dart board with all the pictures of Alpha Bravo on it.
Was it Botcon or SDCC that had the silhouettes of a SR-71 looking plane and a tank? I think with this Black Shadow we can more or less confirm that silhouette is indeed Overlord. If that's the case it looks like there's significant remolding done to make it Overlord. I'm not too worried.
Oh god just give me those Titan Masters now. I think Mini-Repugnus and Shuffler probably are tops on the list, but all four just look great.
Still iffy on Twinferno. Going to wait for reviews on him, but I do really want that Triggerhappy. Kickback does look pretty nice. Doubt I'll get either Kickback or Brawn though. Good to see Brawn and Gnaw finally getting released though.
Broadside and Sky Shadow look damn good, but leaders aren't really in the budget right now. Kudos to Hasbro for the mini Aerialbots though.
Everything else just an easy pass. I still hate the look of that G2 Prime. Oh such hatred I do have for it.
I find your use of the word inappropriate to be inappropriate.
Broadside is a Voyager.
Seems a little irrational to me.
I really like Trigger Happy, I wonder if Takara is going to do anything different with him...hope I don't have to get him twice.
Don't let that Brawn go to waste... milk an Outback out of that mold, Hasbro. New head, of course.
Yeah, I think we'll be pleasantly pleased with how Overlord turns out.
feel bad for people who buy multiples of toys for their alt mode. sixshot's gonna break your bank lol
It'll be nice to wrap up the '84 Minibots with Brawn, but I was hoping to see Seaspray, Beachcomber, and New Cosmos.
Is that Repugnus the super-cutest or what?
omg omg omg omg omg omg........I cant breath.....................................................................................1 2 3 4 5 hahhhhh ok
kickback, brawn, rodimus, and a microscope preceptor..................................omg omg omg................................
The deluxes are looking to be the jewels of the line so far, if I can afford it I'll pick all of them up. I really love that Broadside and am really eager to get the Tidal wave repaint. Sky Shadow looks nice and I'll probably pick him up, but MMC Carnifex is going to be my Overlord.
