Tw02 has legs no where cool as the source material & his head is too plane as well
I think TW02 will look really cool standing behind the new Orion Pax mold. I really hope they rework that head a bit though. I wonder if he'll come with as many attachments as Hegemon.
I don't know if it's been reported yet, but Brainwave and Trace are both up on BBTS now. Although Brainwave is obviously supposed to be the same as Smart Robin, he stands out on his own better doing an X-wing kinda deal.
Like Hegemon, Optimus has not joined them.
Yeah, I hope BBTS carries that Optimus.
I was told in the other threads that BBTS and tfs probably won't carry that prime just like they didn't carry hegemon. They don't want any trouble is how I understood it. We will have to get the prime threw other sources.
So has Sidecutter said if CP is going to carry TW-02? If so, that'll be my first order through there.
The alt mode for TW's Brainstorm kills it for me. I'll stick with FP although I do hope there is an alternate IDW/G1 head even if from a 4th party.
Just when I figured I wouldn't have to sell my other kidney on the black market for hobby expenses, 2013 comes out with the best third party figures I've seen yet.....I need to find another kidney....
The body is fine, I can't stand the soft head, its too round like Prime went on a Burger and Beer binge, but knowing how the 3p market works these days, I predict an idw head to be done by someone LOL
That digibash shows one thing people are neglecting - the panel right above the foot can angle outward - producing a more accurate boot shape...
Love the colors you did there btw - makes the mold really pop.
And yep, that's definitely a hinged panel.
Hinged panel or not, that doesn't fix the legs completely, or all the other problems with this horrible attempt at making a toy of Don's design. Don's design is not a collection of flat, boring rectangular blocks like this thing is.
ill trade a kidney for a few lobes of liver...
sorry--no. bot mode not too bad, alt mode looks like the spawn of a landspeeder and xwing. Price? too high. Sticking with FP.
Considering the face sculpt on smart robin and the vehicle mode on brainy here, I'm thinking my wallet stays healthier.
This prime is cool, until I see the origin material then I'm a little,let down, even without dons designs tho the head is a little plain
Not so throttlebot is bought tho, these little guys are awesome in either mode so far, so ill five them my money and trust on these.
That digi bash looks great now use some photoshop magic and put a to scale faith leader anime head on him!
The more I look at this the more I wish the top corners of the hood that make up Trace's chest were part of his back or folded into the back to open the chest up a bit more. There is a perfect line where these could have been cut. As he is now and given the higher angle photo it looks like the hood chest could block most of his face which is a shame. The heads on the last two were great and I've already pre-ordered this, but I do wish the hood didn't have the V wingtip corners.
Dammit toyworld, just when I'm certain I'm not going to buy any more 3rd party stuff, this update comes along.
Their Brainstorm looks amazing, and the original figure was one of my favorites.
Interesting choice of the Urus for Chase.
As for the Gestalt Part, interesting what are these holes
I for one actually like how the figure is more blocky than Don's design. No offense to his work but it's a little too "edgy" for my taste and for the classics collection in my opinion. Consider this bought.
