We eatin’ GOOD this week, bruh!
I was joking, chief! Oh, please don't tell me you thought TT would joke about Bee getting murdered.
Meh, the mold is old and the face looks really weird, like he ate a bad Chipotle and is about to head to the crappers. Looks like Takara really is going through with the approach of reissuing all of the old figures as a “+” and fleece collectors of more money.
Looks really good
So everybody really plans on getting all the pluses eh?
Then what will you do with your originals?
Are people honestly happy with having to buy everything all over again at a higher mark-up?
The face looks weird
Right? Takara was puttin in that work
Yikes we are only 37 days in, it might be a painful year for you. Good Luck
This is the first + release where I would argue it is anything but lazy.
The originals? Probably smash them with a hammer I guess like the junk they are!
...but probably just sell them off like I've already done with the original Red Alert and Sideswipe when the + versions came out and I decided I wanted them more. Got back about what I paid on both, too, and covered the costs of the new ones (which weren't really marked up until Streak here came along, but it's like $10 extra for new molding and stuff so not a big deal).
LOL you act like somebody mugged your manifold.
It's Lazy in the aspect that we haven't got a single brand new mold of a character since what, Sunstreaker?
Feels like Takara will never get around to finishing the 1st season ARK Crew.
This is the same silly thing like the new Megatron being grey, not silver... So what if Bluestreak was grey in the cartoon? We all knew he was supposed to be silvery, but that could not be done with 2D animation.
The weapon effects are nice though - they probably got that idea from Hasbro\'s WFC Siege - but I am totally fine with the first version. Heck, pretty sure you can add those to the original toy.
As you can see from the responses, yeah, sadly they are. Consumerism at its finest here, they just eat whatever is put on their plate.
So did you want Datsuns v2.0 instead? People are already outraged over Bumblebee v2.0. You don't have to buy them again if you don't want to, you're not made to. We didn't get these versions of the Datuns to begin with because during the time they released they were from a different era of the Masterpiece line, pre-shift into cartoon-accuracy.
There's no dishonesty here, if anything, it's honest for TT to release plus editions of these as they're blatantly telling us they want this line to be cartoon-accurate and will support our demands for more cartoon-accurate versions of the Datsuns. Also, not everyone here has the original Datsun molds. I myself just start collecting, so these will be a first for me. For those who already have the originals the answer's simple: resell or display them in vehicle mode.
Come on TT...what other surprises ya got in store for us??!
It might be a good idea for me to bow out of buying any MPs for awhile since they are just doing all the stuff as mall exclusives and calling them "+"
Now if they come out with brand new molds for brand new characters, I'll def get the new ones.
I just want my ARK crew without having to rely on 3p to fill that gap.
Not that I mind, I just wish Takara would get on the ball so I can finally be done with my TF collection.
Well I never had the originals and the old bluestreak I find extremely dull. So yeah I’m gonna buy it.
I like the way you think
There are always people who are unhappy (especially if you are talking about collectors).
"What? A reissue? No, we want a 2.0!"
"Why is there a 2.0? I don't want that!"
"I hate toon-accuracy. Diaclone forever!"
"I want my toys to look like as if they leaped from the TV screen."
"I like the Armada Side Swipe mold." *gets lynched for heresy*
Hound's on the way, and easy repaints have financed the MP line since the beginning which gets us new molds (like Dinobot and Megatron who while Beast Wars are MPs and new molds). Besides, this time they at least remolded the head when they didn't have to, a lot of people would have bought it anyway but it's nice they are putting more effort into + releases now other than a fresh coat of paint.
How's it dull? Apologies for asking, I guess I'm honestly trying to understand what you mean.
There's no denying they both look great.
The sunbow colors were never all that great for him (to me)
