I assume it's going to be plot relevant that he hasn't killed any Predacons
Wait you’re not constantly mad about everything all the time 24/7? Colour me shocked.
A for effort!
Is his head the Terrorcon insignia or is the Terrorcon insignia his head.
“Muh third party bad” is literally what your saying. Your so biased you are comparing some of the objectively best transforming robot figures ever made to literally happy meals toys because your mad about who made them.
You know, a lot of people call 3P enjoyers elitist, but a lot of you people who try to be armchair layers will be elitist when it comes to third party and virtue signal with “actually 3P bad” like you think your actually doing something or you actually understand the US legal system.
Don’t kid yourself. If you genuinely believe this your biased. You know 3P figures aren’t bad, you just hate them because you don’t like them. Just admit it.
There was a part of his post that was edited out where he said he was obviously kidding
The head is kind of neat, it reminds me of Blackout.
If they edited out the part of his post where they said they were kidding, then I guess it’s logical to assume they don’t want people to think they are kidding.
People on this site are literally so biased in their hatred towards 3P they will genuienly compare them to Happy Meals toys, so how could one tell the difference between whats a joke and whats serious at this point?
If Hasbro doesn’t give a shit about 3P, why should anybody care if they’re IP-thefting, is my thought process
Here is a quote about IP laws from user Protectron Prime.
"Transformers nowadays are happy meal toys"
Btw this isn't supposed to offend anyone it's a joke
Did Chefatron's goofy ass get his hands on this? Lmao
Huh. I did not know that
Yes, I was kidding. I own 3rd party figures from MMC, Planet X, and APC. I edited it out because it came off as "explaining the joke".
I think this looks pretty cool! It’s obviously mistransformed, so I won’t jump to conclusions. Based on what we can see, it kind of reminds me of The Fallen. The head looks cool! Kind of like Maximus’ mask in Gladiator.
Just some random guessing:
Perhaps we’re looking at the back of the figure?
Whether we’re looking at the front or the back, I expect this part to look more cohesive when properly transformed. Look at all that truck kibble behind his shoulders. I can very easily imagine a transformation like MPM Optimus Prime or ROTF Optimus Prime, where a bunch of truck kibble comes over his shoulders to tab onto his chest to form a coherent look.
A lot of people don’t, but it doesn’t stop them from acting like they do. But it’s never really about whats “good” or “bad”, it’s about them not liking something and thinking that their opinion is objective, rather then subjective, and then trying to force everyone else to think the same way, or make a monster out of anyone who disagrees.
Then I’m sorry if my response seemed harse. I’ll admit I don’t take posts like that well, as a lot of people genuinely think that way and it just strikes a nerve in me to see such bias masquerading as moral policing.
But, like, we have an entire 3P forum. And it's arguably the most active forum on the site.
I dunno, seems weird to be self-admittedly touchy about a subject that's generally well accepted here. If 3Ps were constantly under assault and marginalized I'd get it, but they're really not. Some people don't like them. That's fine, they're not the majority. (or at the very least not an active/vocal majority)
It's cool. Snobs suck whether it's Hasbro/Takara stans or 3rd party elitists.
Outside of the 3P forum, you’ll see people really biased against it. And sometimes even in the 3P forum itself. I never said they were a majority either, just that they exist and when I see stuff like that it strikes a nerve for me as it’s just objectively wrong.
It might also be more fitting to say that when I see people making absurd claims because of their own personal biases, it pisses me off.
As messy as the image is, can anyone tell if it'll have a licensed alt mode?
