Hope we get an image of Hun-gurrr soon!
Thanks man, same to you!
I actually cheated a little and drilled a hole for the gun handle in one of the shin yellow parts! Seeing as he'll mainly be in bird mode or arm mode it felt like an okay trade-off and it's yellow on yellow in bot mode so not too bad. Not ideal I know, but I was't happy with any other positions for the gun unfortunately! Otherwise he's a super cool figure for sure!
That's something I really like about them too. You can certainly mess around with them without much trouble and seeing as they're not $150+ dollars a piece it doesn't feel as scary either.
It's true of the Poseidon set as well. They are fun to mess around with and very sturdy with intuitive transformations. I have 3 and was only looking to do those, but now I'm thinking of picking up Snaptrap and the others just because they are so much fun. They also look great with the Terrorcons.
Also, I just tried the thing with plugging the armor plates on Blot's beast head into his chest. Such a small change, but holy shit what a difference it makes to the flow of the bot mode!
I still want to make a few custom changes to him, but he's looking much better now.
All these great pics... I'm going to have to contribute sometime soon...
And so I am...
Love these guys... cannot wait for Hun-Grr. We need pics... and pre-orders... and to have them in-hand...
For Sinnertwin, I really like that pose I saw not long ago, (maybe from this thread too) -- Move the beast heads to above the shoulder instead of hanging at the back.
A bit disappointed, when I combined the weapons of s04, TFC made it too close that it was almost impossible to attach it all, if you try it, you can still do it, but if you leave it for a long time, it will be difficult to remove or break.
That looks like a bunch of crayons mushed together, lol
I hope Hun-gurr comes with a gun for Abominus...
That looks like a feature I'll simply skip
yeah, the gun colours are too bright and different when combined, like a Nerf gun.
I'm confident he will... but only as part of this one.
The weapons... just don't really work with their alt modes, but are colored specifically and exclusively respective of their owners. So far, it's something I'm holding against the design... Warbotron's rifle that came with the X-Ray thing was pretty good. And Feral Fex's Cannon is just about perfect to me.
I'm still hoping there's a set waiting in the wing (of Uranos) that will make up for the weapons issue. I'd prefer a composite melee weapon...
Those are fantastic pictures dude!
Thank you my dude!! Appreciate that! Let's keep our fingers crossed for some more info so we can start getting this team into poses and being more terrible than ever
Finally got around to adding Cutthroat (Lucifer) to the team. I had the G1 Terrorcons as a young lad, and it’s great to see bigger, upgraded versions of an old favorite.
As I mentioned in another post, I’m not a fan of the wings. And also, like Blot, there does not appear to be a good place to put the gun in alt mode. Considering how this was an fun feature of the originals, I feel it’s a complete miss that it was overlooked
And even though Rippersnapper has a place to put his gun in his back, a double-barreled similar to the G1 would have been cooler. Maybe two guns that joined into one. Sinnertwin seems to be the only one that looks somewhat reminiscent of the original.
I’m really feel like TFC’s gun designs for this team are being lead by the notion of combining them. Which, is a terrible idea since they are all different colors and look horrible when joined. So sacrificing guns in alt mode for that purpose would be all sorts of bad, if that’s the case.
I don't really mind the garish gun combo because I think it'll kinda look good when the robots are all combined anyway. I think it would have looked better on Poseidon, but they didn't really follow through on that gun combo that I'm aware of.
Other than that, eagerly awaiting Hun-grrr, and I echo the sentiment that TFC's cool because their stuff isn't too expensive and is still fun to fiddle with. The other reason I've had a soft spot for TFC since Herc is that it's nice still having some 3p's that re-envision characters rather than just doing straight G1 designs, and TFC's figures have always been eye-catching because of that.
Only tangerly related, but finally scored a used, complete Ordin (not sure there's thread for them, or if I really have any reason to resurrect it).
Except comparison pics if/when I get both sets.
4/5 bots in, Troll is the only one I still have the thought, "hm, I may have liked the old one better..."
But... not 100%
With new Cang Predaking, Moon Studios Raiden, and GT Hot Spot pics, I’m hoping Hun-Grr pics aren’t far behind.
And that Dream Star Slingshoot too
