We cant show photos, but there are multiple counts of people who have seen it
Next year is Beast War's 25th anniversary. It started in 1996. For the 10th, they re released some of the original moulds in better paint schemes, with a dvd and a transmutate build a figure.
He looks very shiny.
Ironically the BB situation is the reverse in oz
Bumblebee should be easy to find since once wave 1 were released here (like a month and a half ago) they were easy to find
Bug Bite'll be harder to get though since Pulse doesn't ship here
Sunstreaker needs an actual gun. I'm not a fan of them trying to turn his super-charger into a weapon.
Phew it looks like it was the shadowing in the last photos that made it look like his douche-y soul patch was off-centre. He'll do for me!
Hope the car canopy clips in better than that 2nd photo though!
Do any ER figures have light piping?
With siege, we had Seekers, Shockwave, Soundwave.
From what I can tell , ER has none.
I feel like since CW light piping has faded away.
Is it too expensive or does Hasbro feel painted eyes is more of what the fans want?
Warden is leaving? Odd.Why? He left or was fired?
I don't get it. Why can't you show photos? There are no rules on TFW2005 against leaks. Heck they usually frontpage them.
OZ? You live in Emerald City? How is the Wizard these days?
Here in Europe, I only heard Nevermore report the Netflix toys from Germany, so they will not be easy to find around here.
Warden is moving to headline Power Rangers for Hasbro, and Kentan is talking about sources. People on his end of things can get in serious trouble.
He's taking the reins of Power Rangers & Ghostbusters, neither truly leaving nor getting fired, more like a promotion.
His feet have fake flip-out wheels. It's pretty much impossible to get the rear wheels to the front on a deluxe, given that his arms are formed from the parts back there, AND also to retain leg articulation. Whatever convoluted mechanism would there be, it would restrict that. I mean, even MP Hound has fake wheels on his feet. I don't like it, but this is the best Hasbro could do.The originals had all 4 wheels on the feet because they were immobile bricks with a pullback autotransformation action that collapsed the wheels.
Ah so it's another secret sources thing. Everyone seems to have one these days. I remember when the first leaks we had came from figures slipped from the factory to ebay... Guess nowadays nobody can hold their mouths for long.
Odd that Warden left TF for Power Rangers. I assumed he was a big fan. 'though this means good news for Ranger fans. I bet we will have transforming Zords next year, finally.
He didn't necessarily "leave", if his bosses told him "Hey we are moving you to these brands" then that's where he went. The higher ups most likely saw how well the transformers brand was doing with him as senior design manager and so they made the choice to transfer him to brands that needed a bit of help
I'm sure Nonnef or Matrix Workshop will step up and fill the gap.
Not the first time they have done it though his Universe figure did it too.
Lateral, at most.
Warden working Power Rangers could be a big help there. He found a way to balance classic characters with new play patterns and that's the kind of thing that could really boost interest in the toyline.
I personally wouldn't call heading up the product for a pair of recently acquired IPs including one brand rumoured to have been about $500 million in the acquiring a 'lateral, at most' job move, looks more like a promotion to me. Those are some quite valuable keys being handed to him with quite some risk attached that, if in his shoes myself, I'd be parlaying some counterbalancing reward for. Only Warden & Hasbro know for sure.
but it was optional there, the gun's still a gun without the Supercharger extension. This version doesn't really give you the option to have him armed and have the Supercharger on his back (which is a key part of SS's silhouette to me...)
not just that but he went from more or less running 1 brand to running 2. Definitely more responsibility involved in that
Without knowing the internal workings of Hasbro, this is wild speculation, but one might guess that if Warden steers MMPR as well as he did TFs, he'll be in line for the next upper level executive position that opens up - real chance that beyond interest in the property, he did this to move on up in the world (and good for him).
