Chromedome is totally a retooled Deadend. Not sure how I feel about that.
They're not the same. They are similar. Dead end has an angled cut across the middle of the upper arm. This is a straight cut. I'd say one inspired the other, but they're definitely not the same mold.
It's been a long time since I wanted an entire wave of Deluxes.
Love the look of all 4 and I can't wait to pick them up,especially Chromedome. He's nearly unrecognisable as the Stunticon mold.
Heck, even Wheelie looks good. Disappointed in Rumble however.
I'm liking these figures more than what they did with Combiner wars.
Maybe but it looks different enough to not bother me, and id be lying if i said i don't love how Deadends arms and shoulders transform
Indeed, because it pleases 37 year old's like me, who have been waiting for more G1 infuse and a lot less extreme IDW style influence.
About the CW Dead End - TR Chromedome thing : I'm sure people will have to see these two in person side by side and realize....Chromedome is a good inch taller.
No, he totally isn't, the arms just have near-identical engineering.
Honestly I really like what I see here. Fort Max looks like a ton of fun and an improvement on Metroplex, the updated Headmasters look great (Mindwipe's wing/leg transformation looks super cool), Wheelie is perfect, Blurr looks pretty decent, and Scourge looks fine except for his head.
There's that sinking feeling that comes right after the excitement when I realize that I'm going to end up buying every one of these toys...
Oh WOW....didn't see Skullcruncher at first.....thing of beauty!
Must have......I think my wallet is wilting already.
It's almost like removing the combiner joint ratcher and peg inside Dead End would somehow leave a square cavity that is big enough for a HM to fit in.
Seriously, these HM's fit in a legends class toy with Wheelie - who the packaging for suggests it about the size of previous Legends like Swerve or Powerglide.
You completely ignore the fact the 5mm shoulder sockets are in the exact same place as they are on all versions of the Dead End mold, the wrists have the same "ratchet" look - which Dead End's mold is the only deluxe to ever have those kinds of wrist hinges AFAIK - and from the evidence seen in this picture, both the front end of the car and the chest panel fold into alt. mode position identically to Dead End.
I mean, if you compared the inner slope of Chromedome's left arm to that same place on the left arm on Dead End, they match exactly.
Someone still believes these TR Deluxes are the same size as CW Deluxes.....
I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed by Chromedome. Maybe my first disappointment of the line so far. Head looks great, vehicle mode is okay other than the wheels, but that robot mode isn't doing it for me. Oh well. I'll still get it because it's Chromedome and I've waited decades for Hasbro to do this.
Mindwipe, on the other hand, looks great. So does Blurr. And that Wheelie looks amazing. If I ever wanted to buy a Wheelie figure (I don't), this would be the one.
I can absolutely tell that Chromedome is larger overall than the average CW mold.
The legs too. And the front of the car on his back. It's a heavy retool ala Sandstorm, but the transformation is essentially the same.
I care about scale, too
You are never in your lifetime going to have a larger Maximus than this. There just isn't ever going to be one.
Well, we'll know soon enough who is right about this.
I must admit I was a little diappointed due to the few new reveals we got. However from what was revealed, Wheelie and he tablet-cons are guaranteed. The deluxes except for scourge, as I already have the Generations version. And probably Fort Max if he doesn't come for R$999.000.000 here in Brazil ._.
Forgive my ignorance but....Who is Loudmouth?
Blurr and Wheelie and I'm good. I don't like the new scourge at all. Maaaaaaayyyyybbbbeeee... Astrotrain but I'm leaning against it.
I'm looking at my CW Prowl, and I can tell you that zero parts are being shared, not even the hands or the connecting shoulder joints. It's an entirely new figure that shares near-identical engineering with a previous figure, more like the old G2 Smokescreen/Energon Starscream debate.
But at this point it doesn't really matter what you call it; he's practically a new toy either way.
Loudmouth is Siren, just with a new name.
