arcee man is a man
WTB all constructicons in g1 repaint
You`ll have to race me to get him
Well anyway i liked movie 1 arcee better than this one. Unless they have a combined form i may skip all three bike bots.
I have to chuckle at the "coming soon" portion of the report on Arcee. I saw her 2 days after the "official" release date at one of the local Target stores.
I'm a bit surprised at the responses over the G1 repaint of Mixmaster. Most of the folks on another site are agreeing with me that this is pretty much like coming across train wreck. Not everything looks good in homage colors and as far as I'm concerned, any and all of the new Constructicons fall into that category. This guy makes the twins look good.
Sideswipe (I don't care WHAT anyone else calls him) looks good. This is how he SHOULD have been colored but I know why they avoided it for the big screen. I'll get both versions if I can scare up the funds. This now brings my count up to 5 "must have" Deluxes (with 3 on the secondary list) and 1 Voyager. All the rest are Scout and Legends which makes this WAY more managable than for the first Movie line. I'm glad Hasbro isn't doing so well the second time around. Much easier on my wallet.
Really? Care to pick her up for me?
Yeah i am buying this version i think it looks awesome!
GREAT GOOGLY! that looks fantastic better then the regular paint scheme! he's gonna look sick with mah dirtboss hope they repaint them all!
I don't want to spoil anybodies fun, but the colors do not work all that well for mixmaster. Sure he is more G1'ish but the mold isn't. So the the Mixula look fits better. I do preffer the black head with red eyes though. Still there is more valuable toys coming out worth your money. Leader Starscream and the eventual Premium Prime get my attention. I already picked up the MA-21 battle mode prime and it was stellar; worth far more than geewun starscream which didn't fit the aesthetic. The only one that ever did was Jazz and that is because he wasn't that far removed from his 1980's incarnation.
Unless you are looking to resell this to gullible fans; I would stray from this one.
i'll probably skip this until i need more cons, to even out the tons of autobots coming out...
arcee is a must have IF they still combine, that is if not, big pass...
Mixy looks incredibly garish in those colors, so I'll getting the silver version, but it's nice that Hasbro was thinking of the fans.
yea that's what i was thinking, i already have that one on order lol. how ever IF they come out with them ALL in those colors, then that i could buy.
Exactly. They'd have to.
Someone did a digibash of movie Devy in G1 colors, and it worked for me. Bring it.
Arcee looks interesting and I'm definitely looking forward to that one. G1 Mixmaster looks terrible, though, especially compared to the more realistic deco of the original release. I'll pass.
OMG! I knew that mixmaster would be on his way...but not so SOON!. GEEZ I'm like....and hour! away from being done repainting the wave 1 release.
Easy choice. Green & Purple MM for the Constructicon shelf it is.
So you can call me a heretic if you want, but that Mixmaster looks AWFUL. I'd buy the regular version in a heartbeat over that thing.
I honestly hope they dont repaint all the constructicons like that. I was sort of looking forward to the red repaint of Rampage like he is in the movie.
I might actually plop down the money for devs if he's done in this style too.
And as for Arcee being 'Mannish'.
(S)He may not be a fembot in the film. We might get lucky, and she still is, or at least her sisters. But for the most part in the book at least. Well it alluded to a barry manilow-esque voice, which I pray to god has been changed. Male, and I'll cope, but overtly mockingly male and it's being deliberately rubbing our faces in it insulting.
What? Because girls can't like transformers too? Or even be one?
The repaint is a nice novelty. I'm undecided as to which I'll pick up.
Arcee...hmm. Man, I wish I liked her design. But no matter how hard I TRY to like it, I just cant. I'm sure the she-bots are gonna get the shaft in the film anyway.
Repaint wins. I hope they all get it.
