Alright, which one of you made a wish on the monkey paw!?
interesting. I guess one of the product codes could conceivably be wrong, similar to how Nitro Series Barricade was listed in some places as a Studio Series Voyager.
Would be nice to have a car mode Dropkick to go with Shatter, who's definitely a better looking figure than his helicopter mode.
If only I asked that question to who made that type of wish for the mp44 optimus only to see how much it wl cost.
im not into dino that much anymore if i wanted i could just buy firage for christmas but a new dropkick mold wold better if it sucks ill just wait for toyworld to release them
There are a ton of Transformers characters from any continuity that did nothing as characters, but if they're good designs (and even if they aren't), people will want a semi-accurate figure.
Maybe that was Shatter? I would rather it be Dino, but hey.
Yeah that's the one thing, Ferrari is very exclusive with licensing, if I'm correct, so it's hard to imagine them letting HasTak make a figure for them. It's unfortunate but true.
if Dino , is cancelled rather than delayed , I wonder if it could be licensing issues for his alt mode rearing its head again.
That said I have desire for the figure but for the sake of those who do I hope its merely a delay.
I mean of course. I don’t want people to miss out on a chance to get an actual Dino figure. Seems only fair.
But I do love Dropkick. He’s one of the ones I’m much more excited to get as a figure. And I’m still not sold on that VW bumblebee.
A voyager blitzwing would certainly be great. We could get a great all purpose seeker mold from it. But I really hope they make a blitzwing in actually blitzwing colours.
Just hope it is better than the dumpsterfire they already released. Don't think I need two crappy representations of a character at $20 a pop at this time.
Didn't this same thing happen with Nitro Zeus last year? Everyone assumed that there was going to be a Voyager Bumblebee because of the leaked listings, and then we got Nitro Zeus instead.
A SS Dino is still needed just like a screen accurate ROTF Sideways in Audi R8 form is very much needed!
Sounds like Dropkick has the same issue as AOE Drift:
First round Deluxe Buggati
Secound round Voyage Helicopter
I guess Hasbro dont follow the KISS rule? Keep it Simple Stupid?
Wow, and I just started thinking on getting a SS-2 Stinger / Alien Attack Firage combo to display together because...
1) I still see Stinger often on shelves in my area
2) Both are bad ass Transformers designs
3) I just think they look great together in a battle scene display.
Question is will it be anotget ugly Audi Dino or the actual Ferarri, because if later Hasbro just saved me $40...
I hope it’s car mode Dropkick. I passed up the helicopter because of how bad that robot mode looks compared to the cgi model
This just makes me happy and disappointed with obvious reasons. Sigh...
I was hoping it was the Decepticon Drone Dropkick, but whatever then.
Yeah, because screwing the fans is a sustainable business model for a toy company. It’s almost as if they’re running a business which involves making business decisions.
What a waste.
The BB movie figures are some of the worst in this line. At the bare minimum they should release the entire cast from the first two movies.
I would love if they made all the drones from the first movie game. We need a proper Dreadwing.
We’ve gotten TWO figures from the Bee film. I’ve got them both and they aren’t bad. Dropkick definitely is the lesser of the two, but he can pull off some awesome kneeling poses. Bee is better than the camaro version. A good toy of a good design. Main flaw with him is the range of motion on that noggin. There are worse figures in this line for sure.
Volkswagen Bee is actually one of the better figures in this line. Helicopter Dropkick... Ain't good, ain't bad, just kinda unnecessary...
I'm fine with Dino being delayed as long as it get the Ferrari license.
