Yep, not misunderstanding at all! I did that to my TLK Barricade so that he can be less-Bay!
And bought... Thank you.
I am comprehensively underwhelmed by Rotorstorm. He's not IDW-Wreckers-y enough for me. Centurion looks kind of cool but I'll pass.
Oooh. I like what they've done with the head - it's not just a cone, there's a bit of a crest there too. (Is that an artefact of the ER Starscream mold?) I wasn't in love with the idea of massive wings on the legs, but these look fine. Looks increasingly like I'm in for all three Coneheads but Rotorstorm joins Ironfist, Pyro, Crankcase, Fulcrum and Spinister in the "will need to shell out for a custom" part of my spreadsheet
Do you mean at the sides? If so I'm pretty sure that's the nosecone behind his head.
Besides today's mega hype it turns out that Big Evil positively Howitzered my poor victims willing guinea pigs acros the Atlantic!
Phase 1 complete!
Next: A try at dyeing!
If I can get Blackdler's grey to go dirty yellow I might stretch a very off-model Free Wheeler out of 'em to go with Tailspin if the Mod Gods show favour!
And maybe a Road Hugger out of Hyperhandler there?
Agreed. Desperately needs a new head.
This is what 3P companies excel at. Can we have G1.5 head, LSOTW and an exploding just been shot by Overlord head please?
Me too, again a good price.
Yeah. A new head would have made it. I've pre ordered it for now.
You mean 2010 Tomahawk into Rotorstorm like this
Or Spinister's mold in Tomahawk's colours?
Parte ye Seconde! Or more contemporarily THIS^!
Well, THAT was underwhelming.
I bloody KNEW they'd mold-force Rotorstorm from Spinister, the lazy sods. Not even a new head and more appropriate weapons. Bleh.
Preordered a Guardian Drone set from In Demand, but if anyone else out there only wants the accessory pack I'm up for buying your drones when they turn up as I could only afford one preorder right now.
Weird that there's no blast effects in the set considering what a hoo-hah they make about them as part of the line. Also, why is there so much stuff floating around right now with zero acknowledgment from Hasbro?
Because in the online world the smart businesses are fully engaged with asymmetrical marketing, running the game on multiple fronts, so you can never be sure what's a leak and what's smart "influencing"!
I keep seeing the new G.I. joe figures...
And I can’t ever remember feeling about this about a line. I have no link in any way to any of the heroes, but the villains? That’s a different story. Cobra Commander, Destro, Baroness, Serpentor, Storm Shadow - I would/am seriously tempted by it all. But the hero’s. Nope.
You also have to consider my only real knowledge of Joe is from the TF comics.
By God, this is all the epic, loved the comic and Prime getting the moment he should have got in TFTM - if you’re going to kill off the John Wayne of the franchise, let him go out with a bang!!!
Also was enabled on something other than plastic by @nice sideburns :
Hot Rod approves of the colour scheme.
So still to go:
Any other Datsun/Vanette
That's a expensive list of stuff we might have expected to make a dent in today.......that we haven't.
It's a long year in more ways than just the obvious.
Still selling these guys if anyone is interested. Also on Ebay
HFTD Starscream (USA Electronics) £45
RID Megatron (Incomplete) £10
Universe Powerglide (No electronics) £6
ROTF Ravage & DOTM Laserbeak £15
Given that the spinister mold is already out there, I'm sure there's already work beginning somewhere on a rotorstorm upgrade kit.
Also, I have no connection to Centurion at all, so I think I'll be treating him as some bumbling, perpetually malfunctioning wheeljack creation that 'helps' around the lab.
Just watched JoJo Rabbit, absolutely loved it.
Centurion's gonna be my stand-in SLAMMER until the official WFC:III Wave 1 Deluxe Modulator version blows the doors off of what the next chapter's Titan will be!
Still stand by it being Tidalwave. Gotten flak for saying that I don’t think that Metroplex should take the spot next year even though Warden was salivating at the idea of giving him another go.
Wonder who the next Commander will be? Should be a Decepticon I think. Maybe Overlord...it’d have to be top dog to consider replacing Carnifex
I expect Virtual SDCC will give us plenty more grist for the mill, or at least a hint like the Scorponok head & Trypticon Leg we've had before, it could even be something leftfield tied into TFTM/Unicron, maybe even Autobot City itself as a playset and/or given a robot mode?
BTW something leftfield that Joe/Wrestling Fans might be interested in:
SGT. SLAUGHTER joins Valaverse's ACTION FORCE!
I love my Rts Lugnut dearly, but my goodness I'd love a commander sized update... with proper colours!
