Generations already did Hound and Red Alert (though with a red sideswipe head).
A long long while ago, and Red Alert/Sideswipe doesn't share the same alt as Sunstreaker
My reply was in response to somebody wanting Earth modes and it isn't hard to find those figures for decent prices (compared to current MSRP) if you know where to look and are patient.
They are all listed at 4.5 inches.
And thus Mirage lived on in my head canon and went on lots of cool adventures
They still won't fit all that well since their alt modes don't match Sunstreaker's, which is the whole reason Sideswipe and Sunstreaker are brothers.
Same, Sideswipe especially. He's probably my favorite Autobot car after Jazz. I wish I could be happy with using the Siege one but with the ability to get a perfect G1-accurate version of practically every other character it just won't feel right having him with a Cybertronian mode (and part of why I like him in the first place is how cool it is that he and Sunstreaker have nearly identical car modes but totally different robot modes). Hound would be really nice too, I think his Universe/Henkei figure fits in better with WFC than Sideswipe' would but it'd still be cool to have a more faithful version with a vintage styled jeep mode.
It won't if the Constructicons themselves were supposed to be in nuCHUG scale.
Yes, and Kup was already demonstrated to be as tall as Ironhide, and Jazz is shown to be only a couple heads shorter than him. Don't believe what the listings say, they're inaccurate more often than not.
Their alt modes never matched perfectly except for the Universe/Henkei figures. Brothers doesn’t always mean twins.
...is it bad that I like how he says rrrodimusprime?
They were both Lamborghini Countaches in G1. Sure, Sunstreaker had extra stuff in the back that I couldn't describe if my life depended on it (mechanical engineer in love with transformers, you'd think I'd know a lot about cars), but the base model was the same vehicle. Classics and Masterpiece gave them identical alt modes with optional parts to change Sunstreaker from a stock vehicle to one with the extra stuff in the back. In any line with both of those two characters, they shared the alt modes
In recent years it's like using the vocal synth to recreate old Transformers voices is a lost art. Those vocoder sounds were part of the Transformers Mystique.
At least Tigertrack ended up with both Sideswipes shoulder gun and Red Alerts rifle rather than one or the other
I’m hoping for generation selects of Mirage, Sideswipe, and Red Alert since they don’t need much adjustments. For WFC-E28 I want it to be a two pack of Hound and Skids (the last car).
Yeah, with Reprolabels the cars look similar enough for me. The front ends are very similar as-is at least.
They need to give us spike and daniel in exo suits also.
Leader SS86 Slag is getting Daniel I think
Man, I seriously considered getting the Volcanicus set from Generations Selects because I was getting tired of getting teased about any more be-all end-all Dinobots, but man! That Studio Series 86 Grimlock is very definitely "be-all, end-all" material right there.
(Although it's a massive bummer he doesn't have his sword. That said, if the whole point was to be authentic to what was seen on the screen and Grimlock only ever had the sword in one, two episodes tops, I can allow it. Hopefully DNA Design or maybe Hasbro themselves muster up an accessory pack that gives Grimlock a sword. Or maybe several swords? I'm a big fan of his Fall of Cybertron sword.)
My favorite part of the MP Bumblebee release, actually.
