Oh man... these would be awesome and very welcome on my shelf.
I exaggerated...sorry. He has many lines and a lot of scenes.
Edit: I meant to say "over a dozen". Which is still an exaggeration. He probably has 9 or 10 lines...still more than a lot of the characters.
We all have preferences. That's just mean.
Perceptor was in Prime's death scene. That's pretty notable.
I still remember him more for ginrai and leo
Just got a confirmation. Amazon is gonna start shipping SS Hotrod beginning today. ETA Feb 4 to 5 2021?
I just confirmed for Cyclonus, for Monday.
Do you mean Scourge? Cyclonus is Kingdom.
Frick, wrong thread. I should be in kingdom Lol. It's wierd they aren't in the same line, right?
Aw man. Sorry.
Now you're making me feel like I seriously hurt your feelings.
Saying you hate a toy is a bit much, but I didn't mean to make you feel bad.
Same here and Cyclonus updated to Monday at well. Neither is shipped yet though
I personally don't mind them, but I get the need for accuracy and a correct update.
Wow. We'll come back to this in a moment...
Yeah, this, pretty much.
Okay, the only one in need of growing up around here (based on their actions and interactions) is you. He's hating on a toy (your claims), you're hating on a person (you make it seem like that). See the difference? I'll never understand why people get so defensive over a piece of plastic, but they'll let their fellow man drop dead.
WTF is up with that?
As long as he's hating on a thing and not you, me, or someone else... What's wrong with that? Why is it so important to you that he (or anyone else) not dislike a toy to the point of hatred for it? Why?
You'll also notice, your post that kick started all of this has no likes, even still. Perhaps that's a clue for you to read the room.
Anyway, moving on...
Got Grimlock in yesterday and I'm 50/50. On the one hand, he and Wheelie are visually stunning. On the other hand, he feels insignificant as figures this large go. (Very hollow feeling compared to his SS counterpart from AOE. I'm sure his weight is higher than I'm "feeling" but he's definitely lighter than I was expecting.)
His transformation is nice and smooth and I do like how everything has a place to go in either mode. I will say he's better than the Masterpiece by miles. It's amazing what Has/Tak can do at the retail level when they want to. Why they waited until now is beyond me.
Some of us have been waiting DECADES for stuff like this.
While I can mostly agree with what you're putting across I had to address this: Likes don't equate to the quality of a post. I've seen plenty of terrible posts with a ton of likes and seen really well-structured and strong points with not nearly as many. It can signify how popular / unpopular an opinion is but correlation doesn't imply causation and all that.
Let me say this, buddy: If you really think you're gonna draw me into some pointless argument over some dumb casual remark for which I apologized I'm gonna have to disappoint you.
I really hope they do make a new Perceptor and Blitzwing in this line. Perceptor almost seems like a must since he is important in season 2, movie, and season 3. And Blitzwing could be seen as vital since he has a memorable scene in the movie ("Come on down, Auto-Brat!") and this line is pretty light on options for Decepticons/villains that aren't already provided elsewhere. I still think they could update Shrapnel, Bombshell, and Kickback somewhere also.
Not to mention Perceptor hasn't had a figure since the Titans Return line... and a so-so figure at that IMHO. Anyway, he's due an update.
Just opened Blurr (as the third in the SS '86 line that I now own) and he seems tiny for some reason. He scales with the other figures just fine but for some reason seems like he should be taller... probably just me. I really love these figures.
Everyone click "Like". This, I command!
I'd love a new Blitzwing. My go-to representation is still an original G1 figure that I bought off Ebay sometime back in 1998. I haven't been impressed by any of the subsequent Generations toys.
Preceptor is similar. I have the Reveal the Shield truck variant but missed out on the TR version at retail. Now I don't think he's a substantial enough upgrade to justify his cost on the secondary market.
I'd trade in either of them though if we could get a Blaster and Co. that's on par with Siege/Netflix Soundwave.
I was just thinking I would have given up any of Hot Rod's accessories for an energon treat dispenser instead. We just finally got Allicons! How did they miss that??
Here's hoping for an upgrade kit with the dispenser and a fishing pole!
