Just found these on the shelves at Walmart (Burbank, CA)!
Metalhawk has 5 twine ties to secure him to the box. Yes, 5. Hasbro taking extra precaution.
Compared to Blaster:
- it is not possible to have a tie across the chest, because of wings complicating things. They remediated with two ties above and below the intended one;
- it not possible to have a single tie across the legs, because of... wings complicating things. In this case, it's the winglets attached to the calves. As before, two ties are replacing the intended one.
Alternate explanation: space guy has Buzz Lightyear syndrome. Needed extra precautions to keep him subdued.
Music man just chillin'.
Because those figures practically only had that as paint and very little else. Meanwhile Metalhawk has a varied paint scheme and a not insignificant amount of paint apps on him.
I have both Studio Series Sideswipes and Soundwave also. There isn't much paint detailing on them thanks to how much silver is used. Laserbeak himself is just that gray plastic with just eyes painted in and that's it.
Despite how dumb using the gun for an antenna is in terms of an "evo-fusion" gimmick, I actually prefer that to the regular storage method in Baster's instructions
Does anyone know the product numbers for Metalhawk?
Welcome to the Supreme Commanders Metalhawk! Loving this alot on this Cyclonus retool.
Which gave me a Japanese g1 retcon idea: like Sixshot becoming Greatshot later(from recent retcon), what if Fortress recognized Cyclonus' loyalty to a cause and made hike into the Autobot Metalhawk and honoring his former rival Ultra Magnus. And also taking a jet mode like his former seeker life prior to being remade by Unicron. And what if the Earth was actually going to be destroyed by Devil Z & minions in which Fortress gave Metalhawk & pretenders a mission to time travel to prevent the deception Pretenders from messing with the timeline and to prepare for the battle against Devil Z
Lovely collection and display! And on that note, what kind of cabinet is that? I've been shopping for display case options.
Thank you! That cabinet was made
By my grandfather 20 years ago
You're welcome! Your grandfather did an amazing job!
Come on Steeljaw and Ramhorn!
Still Possible first look?
I wish we would get a gold chromed Metalhawk (click spoiler to see video).
I love the colors on Twin Cast compared to Blaster (click spoiler to see video):
What Arcee is that in the background?
seems like a custom earthrise arcee, going by the arms
Custom Earthrise/Kingdom Arcee with GoBetter Upgrade Kit and Toyhax decals (check the video below).
Soundblaster sure took the brunt of the damage in his matchup with Twincast.
