Did you take it apart into pieces to paint?
Worse than that IIRC the T30 Legends with Partners went to £16.99!
Even adjusting for inflation that's a LOT of Pocket Money in a world where the next fidget spinner or 5POA cheapo The Corps style action figure or whatever could be a Fiver or under, then dropped to £9.99 without the wee Target-come-Micro-masters and no gear apart from essential partsforming (if they weren't a re-tool/re-use with a standard gun) by POTP only The Entertainer and maybe the odd indie were stocking 'em on the high street. Then they were GAWN.
Hello, Micromasters, brace yourselves for that sheer wall and do try to get a grip on it, chaps! *BAM!*
I wonder if we might seem them taking a punt on "Legends" rescaled to ER Deluxe Cliffjumper size but, much like the CW Legends, without gear (barring any partsforming bits like Cliffy's back end) at a median between £10 to under the £19.99 of Deluxe RRP, like say £13.99 - £15.99?
As it stands with the Wave 2 patrol/squads looks like I may have to bundle a snakeramp/psychologist duo with another Ironworks, I've had an idea for Junkion-ing one thanks to @Xaran Alamas.
Which by the way reminds me, did some 3P do an upgraded working claw for Grapple? Or is anyone not bothered about their ER Grapple's gripper, I'd be willing to recompense someone for an extra for my Eeeeevil Exploits!
Great job there Hasbro, we really didn’t need those HORRIBLE little micromasters, like who wants that two-part shuttle combiner? You know, the one that you got NASA licensing for? Yeah, it’s boring! Good thing you remembered to import these beauties though.
Transformers that only transform halfway has got to be up there with Transformers that don't Transform for strangest Transformers concepts for me.
Like, what if you were a Junkion but you were also the Junkyard?
Also a cheeky quick Q for Scorpy Early Adopters: Please could you have a look around his bod for any potential TR clip points like on Omega's tracks?
Again though, there’s a ton more plastic in CJ than the scouts in previous lines. Placed next to, say, POTP Beachcomber he is a considerable step up in mass and quality of construction. That doesn’t necessarily justify the full deluxe price, but it’s not as cynical as first glance.
YOU'RE A TERRIBLE MAN!
There I was thinking I may have bought too many Ironworks... I've been a fool!
Two and a half bots.
Bots bots bots bo-bots bots bots bots bots...
The Thwomp Lego set is now listed as a Smyths exclusive but it’ll still probably be released on Lego [email protected]
I’d love for Hasbro to bring back legends for the next live action movie in the form of another try at the DOTM Cyberverse play pattern. It is my absolute favourite toyline ever, it had a sense of scale despite being tiny and allowed for micromaster-style bases years before Earthrise did them.
Been meaning to try a little project for quite a while and finally managed to get round to doing it whilst dusting the ol' Detolf.
I had a spare copy of a Hatchet comic book so decided to put it to use as a backdrop:
The Stunticons in front of their handywork:
All back to normal after a clean:
Just FYI, the Amazon Echo Dot with LED clock is £30 on Amazon. There's a summer sale on. If that's useful...
Agreed. Transformers that don't transform are action figures. What the heck are these half way houses? Garbage.
Yeah I totally agree with this, I’d love it if they bring back Legends (or even better, the Scout class) as an intermediate between some of the cheaper toys like Battlemasters/Micromasters & Deluxes.
Mainly because we get an average of approx. 16 general retail Deluxes in any given year, & there’s still a new Huffer/Pipes, 5 Throttlebots, 3 Sparkabots, 2 Firecons, 6 Triggerbots/cons plus legitimate redos of Gears, Warpath, Cosmos, Cindersaur plus 3 Insecticons (not including the Deluxes!) & who knows what else!
Just doing the above would take up several years of Deluxes, and I’d hate to see spots taken up by the smaller bots if we could get them in a separate line at a slightly lower price.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled with Cliffjumper & his complex transformation, but I’d be just as happy with something like the old TR Brawn or PotP Beachcomber, those are still amazing toys even without a weapon, waist swivel & ankle tilts.
I’ve got Lionizer, Aimless and Firedrive in stock at gear4geeks.
Need to get me a Singe as I never had them in and a POTP Fangry.
Today on 'Nice Try, Ebayer':
Odd seeing as I'm also an action figure collector and the figure isn't damaged. And was never advertised with packaging. Ah well. Off he fucks.
In robot news I'm enjoying these two immensely. Maybe due to lowered expectations but Moonracer is a lovely surprise. And I didn't like Chromia at all. If anyone has a spare Novastar going I'd gladly buy it!
Apparently we are getting V3 Masterpiece Seekers. Which is a fucking joke, and I imagine knocking towards £200 price point.
So, it’s either wait for BB7/YM to do them again or pick up the inevitable MT sell offs at a reasonable price if at all possible.
Hi Morg, aimless says out of stock. Sorry but do you mean blowpipe?
I ordered some bits from g4g the other day and I didn’t think I’d missed aimless cos’ he’s the one that I need.
