    But... it's cartoon accurate!

    Seriously, that's what his feet looked like in the Super-God Masterforce cartoon. Plus they had to retool them anyways to accommodate Godbomber.

    I hear ya. I never bought that version because to me it looks like he's wearing high heels. I have the Hasbro version & I'm not fond of those feet, it could use ankle pivot or something, but I live with it. Every now & then I check Shapeways but the only fix there is $20+! If I ever take the time & learn 3d printing I'm going to tackle this issue.

    the feet were the sole reason i never bought the takara version. it is accurate but look so bad on the mold. I'll be getting magnus prime when I buy the boxset to get the rest of the figures, but takara really should of redone the design for those feet.

    yup they are shit. But I don't spend my time staring at robo-feet so don't care.
    Also: they look equally as dumb in the cartoon.

    On behalf of the collective 90% of the world that don't get this set................................

    SDGF#R2R%@$%T^%^% $% $ ^% &^5 @$% 2 frumble you HASBROS.
    Another regular character release that should have been a mainline release, that we won't get to own ever. Current options include $100++ AUD for a legends scale figure. No thanks.

    Kicking myself in the cyber-behind that I never bought a double of the first release in Titans Return to repaint.

    This may not be the cheapest option, and they don't match aesthetically with what has been released so far, but I can personally vouch that this pair scratches all the itches.
    They have good articulation, decent weapons reminiscent of their G1, AND they have pile drivers that are even spring loaded with a trigger. The scale is about perfect, and their alt modes are very nice tanks. I can't speak highly enough of these too.

    Also, if you can be patient, I have a gut feeling we will eventually get them as a Micromaster pack in WFC. A Voyager Soundwave and a compatible Laserbeak and Ravage that turn into cassettes (sorta) was just revealed. It makes perfect sense to pair up the remaining 6 cassette minions... Rumble, Frenzy, Ratbat, Buzzsaw, Overkill, and Slugfest. It's an instant seller if HasTak would just do it, and before any naysayers argue that they won't, we got almost all of them as discs for FoC Voyager Soundwave.

    Well my daughter would disagree with you, but she's three, so I don't know if that matters...

    I'm happy to see you're getting better at posing your figures, DocSeth. I enjoy your photoshops. :)

    1206CDBE-65C1-40EB-A6EF-6A75D1D104AD.jpeg
    ....
    ....
    .... if you said ‘pink’ then Misfire is pink.... it’s a cropped section of the Misfire pictured above with a heart added. :p 
    He wears it like a manly man though. Looks good on ‘im.
