Megatron looks to be more of a remold rather than a new mold, but yea pretty much
we do not know for sure prowl and ironhide aren't remolds, and unless i'm wrong, smokescreen looks like a remold of siege version
Megatron is a remold
I dont like their pre order system its very different than other stores, plus im busy sometimes and missed out on the restocks
smokescreen is not a remold, it's a new mold
That manages to he even *worse.* They could have done any number of things to differentiate Megatron on Cybertron to Megatron on Earth.
Honestly, in general I prefer the earthrise megatron, he looks better proportionally in bot mode to me
Preference aside, it's still the same figure.
I hear a lot of people not liking the new ER megatron because of it being so similar to siege and the new headsculpt. But i actually like the ER megatron and i agree with you that the proportions are much better than siege. Siege megatron was too stout overall and chunky at his chest.
Exactly! Now don't get me wrong, I wish they had done something better than the spear, but overall he is at least adequate and the head design looks to be reminiscent of the devastation game
My issue with ER Megatron comes to how they didn't do to Megatron what they've done with Er Optimus which was have a new mold that has elements from the last figure he had but otherwise has plenty of things that are different. I ean they could've based ER Megatron a little from his CW Leader figure but they didn't.
I agee i wished i knew we were getting a straight remold before i got the siege one...
Eh, personally, the less they take from the CW Megatron the better. That mold was kind of crap except for the tank mode
I'm keeping my netflix Megatron and will be repurposing him as Megaplex
I want to get him but i really dont need another g1 style megatron hopefully he goes on sale and i get him for cheap
I kinda want to swap heads on both of them
The point I was trying to make was; just because sideswipe was on the earthrise artwork doesn't mean we are going to get an earthrise sideswipe mode. Just like Wheeljack, just because Wheeljack was in siege artwork doesn't mean we are getting a siege mode Wheeljack, and we didn't. Just because it's in the promotional artwork or packaging artwork doesn't mean we are getting one.
Same, if I find him on clearance I'll get him for a head swap, but if I don't, I won't lose any sleep.
I will for those damn targetmasters
this is how i feel. I rlly need that lionizer recolor
I don't know how this misconception persists, but Takara Tomy Mall is literally just Takara's online store, it's no different to Hasbro Pulse. Being a TTMall exclusive just means it's only available online and the prices there are in line with the stuff that gets released at retail.
In Demand Toys
Astro Squad - Space Command, Specials Ops, Private
Race Track Patrol - Ground Force, holy crap a new symbol who knows what it means, Raider
We'll have to wait on Hasbro to tell us what that symbol actually means, since it isn't in any of the previously released symbols.
Also, the background on the Race Track Patrol packaging is clearly Airwave.
Yes It has many similarities but has several differences as well. Initially I didnt like him but he has grown on me to the point that I am actually looking forward to getting him. His toy fair display has a nice looking silver paint. I'm hoping his tank treads backpack comes off in a similar way to cliffjumper and arcee. He does look a lot like the devastation game like tigatron2002 said. The only real nitpick I have is the lack of better hands. They appear to be the same as siege which could not extend all the way out. There is also something about him that makes him more toon like. I wish more reviews of guys would start churning out.
