    SS86 Hot Rod, SS86 Scourge, and Commander Rodimus all had new blast effects. But yes, I'd like to see some new, larger effects pieces.

    The OS pieces in particular looked great for OS because they gave it that smokey color. The more solid colors of subsequent uses look kinda cheap.

    Nothing wrong having Gundam influences.

    Red white and blue is a standard good guy color (Starscream kinda has the good guy color)

    Very much the Vstar

    Whitebase.png

    and this

    Starship maximus.png

    The basic design......no way is this the SDF-1!

    Again, nothing wrong having Gundam influences as already mentioned Sensei Kunio Okawara already gave his stamp on OG G1 Scorponok and G1 Hardhead.:bowdown: 


    When Flametoys got the license?

    Maybe when the fandom stops ignorantly and irresponsibly calling Transformers designs "Like Gundam." :D

    That would require them to accept that all robots that transformer are not Transformers & could yet be better in their own right...

    Why put that burden on TF fandom? To casuals who aren't fans of either, every mech or robot is either a Transformer or Gundam. :D

    Exactly. I’ve lost count of everyone who knows I collect who’s sent me this meme. I always wanna bring that point up that it’s not OP, but I know they won’t care so I just give them a laughing emoji and move on. It’s not a fight that needs to be fought:lol

    I tend not to put burdens on non fans because they don't have an interest or desire to be informed and that's okay. Can't force uninterested parties to be interested. But fans by nature are, and often do become more informed and knowledgeable. Flex that and not buy into uninformed statements! :2c:

    Liking the images.

    If we hit the target I'll invest. Just can't afford to risk losing money if we don't hit the target. It's the only reason.

    There is no risk in losing money - either it gets made & ur charged at that point - or it fails & it is never charged. 0% risk in backing.

    Dude you won't lose money. They don't charge unless it gets backed. No way would I have just given them money either.

    Really?

    I was told you had to cancel before the deadline so to avoid losing money. That's good to know

    And that's why Unicron came with one and didn't have it as a backer goal. This stand is purely for cosmetics and isnt required

    Again, what's wrong with the designers bleeding their influences into other genres? TF was originally Diaclone anyway.

    You don't get charged until the product is ready to ship.

    Really - only charges when it successfully moves into production only.

    It charges in full the date the production begins - that is 10/11/21 - not when it prepares to ship, which is roughly a year afterwards.
