    Ok, I managed to opened up the accessory pack and these are some the observations made:

    1. Optimus’ ion blaster is...painted.

    2. Roller is painted

    3. Megatron’s frail and Optimus axe...I cannot tell if its painted?

    I accidentally spilt some bleach on them and the table cloth was stained with their respective colours...

    4. Ravage’s cage is painted...its casted in transparent plastic???

    As much as I like the accessories, I’m abit bumped out. The above should have been casted in the original colours.

    That’s the first animated MP TF I skipped...I couldn’t get past the feet plus I couldn’t get past the QC I encountered.

    ...I can forgive the parts forming but not the feet in vehicle mode.

    To me the robot mode for a transformer is important but I find this is really lazy...I don’t know...I need to think.

    She looks nice, and since it's not Arcee she could have had some type of sled when she transformed.

    Honestly? Just wait 3 years for the next "generations style" Ironhide and hope that it integrates the robot mode into the alt mode better.

    I am actually very glad for Elita. She will be my Arial and I will use PotP version for upgraded Elita.

    Though it was dumb to get another G1 arcee after getting her in T30 but this is a better option.

    Why is Megatron frail?


    It's called an Energon Mace.

    It's not a mace, it's a flail.

    Mace has a longer haft with a heavy object on the end (can be round but doesn't have to be). If the heavy object is a spiky ball, it's called a morningstar.

    But if it's a short haft with a length of chain and a ball at the end of that length of chain, that's a flail.

    They can call it a bow and arrow if they want, it's wrong. It's not a mace.

    Paint costs money, so I'm not surprised when the main line doesn't have great paint apps. That doesn't bother me that much since I'll just add my own paint apps if needed. It's a lot easier than trying to fix a sculpt.

    Aren't they moving to Kingdom next?

    Yes, hasbro officially lists it as a mace, however @Sammael is correct in that the weapon megatron uses would traditionally be referred to as a flail. It's like mirage comics saying Leonardo uses katana when really what he uses should be referred to as ninjato (least in any version where the blades are straight and without curve)

    I'm not mad at those Ironhide pictures, but every time I look at the Siege mold I feel like the feet should have rotated on a central hinge for transformation. Moving the hinge to the center via a cutout and having the feet rotate while the panel's open should have made clearance issues work without increasing the number of parts, the sideways rocking ankle would have been more limited but it would have been worth the trade. It looks so weird on this ER design because it's so sleek and then there's these huge hollows at the back. I'm still getting him because I'm a sucker. :p 

    Elita 1's new pics look... well, there she is. I'm not a fan of this Arcee mold and it doesn't suit Elita's character well IMO. The deco looks better than the Arcee version at least.

    He looks good to me. Hopefully Walmart is flooded with these like they were the 1st run of netflix toys.

    If Hasbro calls it a mace let people call it a mace, Jesus does everything have to turn in to pedantic BS?

    My kingdom for an updated Magnaboss. Of the two BW combiners his design was the best and I would love to see somebody take a run at it with modern day engineering ideas.

    Depends on how technical you like to get. I know I find it annoying when people call a firearm's magazine a "clip".

    I'm mostly just laughing about how some of the same people who are demanding we call this a "flail" despite Hasbro calling it a "mace" previously spent the better part of this week arguing that we should all use the term "partial" because damnit that's what one dude at Hasbro used to describe a retool once.

    God, Ironhide's alt mode is embarrassing. No attempt to hide the feet, shoulders just cutting into the alt mode sides. That's just lazy.
