My sentiments exactly.
This looks fun (I love the tank mode!!!), but I absolutely loathe this Bayverse aesthetic.
Specifically: why does the robot mode look so time-period specific when TF's are supposed to be from another planet (i.e. culture).
I understand the human/consumer appeal of designing him this way, but when you have a movie focused on creating believable alien robots, it's more than silly to make them this humanoid. I mean, Bay-TFs don't have noses, right? Because they're aliens? So why do they need pseudo-mustaches?
And it's not that I even hate the face (I rather like it); it's that the face and body and aesthetic just don't match up, imo. It's like a hideous Mr. Potato Head of ideas.
Woah, you’re right! Only instead of his round, shiney, cuddly suit he’s wearing his warmurder armor. I want him even more now.
Looks absolutely gorgeous. Toyworld is great at Movie sculpts, this is amazing.
Now release it please lmao
It's how he was in TLK. Why does Ironhide from the cartoon sound like he's from Texas?
The first movie stated they learned Earth's languages from the World Wide Web. It's a fairly logical assumption they found on the internet other instances and decided to mimic those, including aesthetics.
And uh... live-action Transformers are a mixed bag of facial appearances just like G1 is. Some have facial hair, some have noses, some have visors for eyes. So I don't see the problem here.
I haven't enjoyed much that Toyworld has done, but I am tempted by this. Love the Acid Rain style paintwork.
he looks seriously good.... i dont think ill get him though?
i hope we get a studio series figure of him eventually though
why does he have so many different faces?? based on concept art?
If one of those 4 heads looked like G1 Warpath, id be sold. Still an amazing figure, it gives an appreciation for a character we barely got to see
They're fairly similar to a WWI German and Britsh gas mask respectively.
But goddamn. I love this guy. I just want to see more WWI and WWII alt modes and robots!
Hot damn this is sexy! That paint job is amazing.
Its a legit crime we've yet to get a spiteifre transformer
I agree. I didn't like how the robots slowly became ore human looking as the movies went on. I'll take 2007/ROTF movie faces any day. Still, this looks like a really fun figure. It's too small for my liking, but I'm glad it fits with the SS size for those folks.
I wish he is Hound OS size
Why dose bludgeon look like a samurai?
Why dose optimus almost always have abs
Still expecting to see pictures of him drinking tea.
This post just reminded me of one of the biggest plot holes in TLK. "We learned Earth's languages through the world wide web... Centuries after we got here... I mean, we knew them back in the day. But then we... forgot them? Or something... I don't know. I didn't write my backstory. No, YOUR existence doesn't make sense! Shut up!"
As in optimus, ratchet, ironhide and jazz
Looks neat, but I don\'t really have the need to spend the money on something to remind me of that shit show.
