Can I see evila stand next to generations Blitzwing please?
see page 66
Thanks for that; I'd buy that!
Post #550 for those of you who has a similar page setup to me.
Looks good, but if you are going to do those colors, might as well paint the head:
Yellow around the trapezoid bit on the forehead
wow it looks good , maybe we might get a repaint later on?
I bet my left nut that we will.
well... Toyworld is not known for doint repaints... of all their figures they've only did one repaint of TW-02 Orion & TW-02B Orionvil... thats it.
I actually believe there will be knockoffs of different paint jobs...
I'm pretty much I'm the same boat. I don't have this in the budget, not interested in the character, but that transformation and engineering is very beguiling. That's what has made TW a favorite company for me. Their figures generally seem to have very smart transformations.
And the purple panels on the side of the shuttle mode, I love the colors as-is, better than any digibashes. They did well.
they also did a repaint of hegemon, though not as drastic the orionvil repaint
Are there any video reviews of this guy yet?
edit: English speaking ones I mean.
And they repainted grant into infinitor. They've done a few obvious ones. That's enough for me to think they'll get around to repainting this guy, too, even if it takes a year.
^totally forgot about grant!
that makes me wonder if a toon accurate deco would end up as an exclusive........
But idk about an exclusive.. Hard to say but grant was a total surprise to most of us until tf con. Then infinitor went up after. I'd say it's a safe bet since this wasn't a secret that if a second deco is coming it'll be retail. At least I hope!
This recolor is great. Not sure why they would go with toy color when this is SO much better.
I saw someone post a pic with the tail fin put away in bot mode. Is there anyway to fan mode leg/foot stubs? Does the lower leg below the knee rotate like the Classics toy?
I'd guess because of his appearances in IDW. That recolor is awesome though.
With the shuttle wings now properly transformed thanks to the tip from MegaMoonMan the shuttle mode on mine is rock solid.
I'm loving this guy. So complicated and yet doesn't feel frustrating except for maybe the shuttle tail fin that I am struggling to get in and out of the chest compartment without the use of a tool.
The guns won't peg into mine in shuttle mode but oh well.
Mine won't either, the holes are WAY too big for the guns. Not sure how that could have made it past the design phase. No big deal, though. Not a difficult fix.
man, I really wish I had room in the budget for this guy. looks stellar!
I'm going to tweak robot mode a bit (purple helmet etc), will upload new version tonight.
After watching the review for the other Astrotrain...I think I like this one the best, but alas, with a trip next month and my having to pay for my car registration means I'll have to hold off on this.
