SS86 is going to be a cracking line
Amazing, I just wish that when ss86 is unveiled its just called g1 studio series and is its own subline that way when the 86 movie is finished we can get any updates to the toon cast thats needed, such as mini bots,maybe combiners, a proper metroplex, toon accurate colours ratchet ect ect
Strange maybe TonTon's lighting hurt the look of the figure, he looks a bit better here.
I doubt it they already have dead optimus out and ER looks the best already
Is it wrong that I want a 3rd party Cygar head?
I can own it when I make a mistake and I made a mistake with Kup. You're right, the lighting is much better here and he looks better for it. I'm actually kind of excited about him, now. The face doesn't look nearly as bad with some shadows on it.
I pretty much defaulted to the cygar head for the Fans Toys version. No, it's not accurate to the movie/cartoon. But somehow, he started looking naked without it.
I hope not, because great minds think alike:
Rest of the figure looks great. Just needs a face that doesn't look like it melted.
That was my same thought, felt the same way all the way through the review.
Do you think we will get official reveals this weekend for nycc?
ER Prime is not cartoon/movie accurate.
He's also not incredibly inaccurate either though.
It's enough that a movie accurate version could be released. Which is what Rakzo was asking for.
Ah thought yall were talking about the mold more so than the paint job
Given that we know ER Optimus will be rereleased in 2021 and we know pretty much every Studio Series release for the year, I'd agree with Fenrys it's unlikely in the short run.
HOWEVER, given that CHUG post-Kingdom is supposedly moving further away from G1, I can absolutely see a Studio Series 86 Prime as a further retool of ER Optimus in 2022 BECAUSE there's likely to be nowhere else a G1 Optimus could fit in 2022 and Hasbro tends to have a refreshed G1 inspired Optimus at retail every year. (I think they only missed two years since 2006 between reissues and new takes?)
Heavily disagree with that statement
Yeah, the actual sculpting looks pretty good now. I do wish the chin was not quite as long still, but the expression doesn't look so bad under more normal lighting.
Im going to swap out this not great looking default head and putting on his Legends Kup benevolent looking expression face instead.
You say "benevolent", I say "alien attempting to smile for the first time, before everyone else tells him to never do that again".
Disagree all you want, but the figure's colors do not match the animation.
Remove the silver paint from the rectangle under the chest windows. Add yellow paint to the square on the crotch. Remove the silver stripes from the cab mode. Swap the silver on the chest grill for white. Swap out the grey plastic on the lower torso for white. Remove the silver paint from the vents on the legs. Paint the inner legs blue. Make the stripe on the trailer grey instead of the toy styled blue stripes.
