You know what, that's actually a cool idea! Somebody tell SND!
Reprolabels has a sticker kit for him. Just grab an extra red one and sticker him up.
I just realized Soundwave is pretty heavily retooled in alt mode from the TR one. There's now different speaker detail and new radio dials.
Thanks dude that makes alot more sense. I forgot there 20 quid a piece now
I am in love with this WFC line, I love the designs, the articulation, printing, Micro Master integration, molded detail and the weathering effects!
My guess is that they're holding them back for New York Comic Con.
And shit stickers.
While you are right about this new UM being not everyone's "cup of tea", including me, the first problem is that most people that really like it already have it. Not that I wouldn't buy a handful at a heavy discount, just because I like UM so much. But the even bigger problem is the fact that you are not the only one thinking this way. People will be unloading their CW UM's in droves, driving your expected price way down. One guy on here said he would do $15 shipped. Are you willing to complete with that? I wouldn't, even if I did want to unload. The only way to effectively unload it due to shipping cost would be in a lot with other things. The weight of it alone will put you in priority range for certain, with the minimal cost being 7.10, assuming they are not really far away. As for this new UM, I am not sure why some favor it versus the prior version. I am sure some of it has to do with people who just have this thing for buying the newest bot, but other than that I have no clue why. Especially when they pay $50 for it. Assuming Hasbro doesn't pack it with some dime a dozen character that no one wants. Then, you are really going to pay. And for what? It is nothing more than a retool of the same mold!
It's not foolish. The movies do indeed increase sales overall. They increase the profile of the brand, which effects all of the sub lines. Every year there's been a movie out, Hasbro has had a markedly improved quarter, and Transformers is usually cited as the reason for the bump. The movie aesthetic isn't my cup of tea, but it's good for the brand.
He is right. While movie toys might not fair well with small children, the overall public awareness of the brand with a blockbuster movie definitely increases sales across the board for Hasbro.
God... Prime's head in that commercial... He's not THAT hard to draw, early 90s animators!
And to add to my above opinion, I must say that I think Hasbro made a smart move bringing the date of the new BB movie to around Christmastime. Especially this year, with so many other Disneymill movies being slapped out like a mass production factory during this summer. The winter release will give them an edge, because Hasbro has what Disney does not. A thriving toy line. And what better time than Christmas to release a toy-centric film?
Yeah, fuck those shitty stickers, tampos and paint only please.
You say this while bearing the avatar of Grimlock from the REAL War for Cybertron line? Blasphemy!!
i noticed this right away myself, that ironhide looks alot like the TR Kup figure. Im just surprised that it took 13+ pages for someone to bring it up; and since it WAS brought up, that NO ONE has been a butthole and come into the thread to argue about that being said.
I will be passing on 99% of this line except cog, since I also have good representations of all of the mentioned characters. I just hope that cog gets some painted detail on his face...
I will Hunt this set to no ends but a couple questions. official names on the back of the box are Frenzy, Howlback and lazerbeak Adam Pawlus on Twitter also seen on seibertrons booth tour
A. why does frenzy have blue eyes
B. Why is what seems to be a toy accurate Buzzsaw called Lazerbeak and why did they do Buzzsaw again and not Garboil to go with Howlback may be they thought to much blue would be in the set?
Hound and Sideswipe are perfect. I hoped Ironhide would be Voyager, but a tall deluxe may be ok for me.
Prime\'s vehicle mode is growing on me (I\'m sold on his bot mode).
I\'m sticking with my CW magnus.
i wish that chromia was just a straight repaint of ironhide, cuz that ersatz moonracer is doing nothing for me. elsewhere in the line, holy smokes micromasters time to start stocking up on micromaster bases. (Hasbro just put more greebles and a drabber colourscheme on skystalker i will buy it i won't even care)
Elsewhere, that cog is... like iron factory levels of fun lookin?
Separate names with a comma.
