    I mean, this is me. I ABSOLUTELY want "G1 with modern articulation.". I've literally gotten rid of everything older than Siege because it's all not G1 enough, therefore not good enough for me to continue owning them.

    I don't care if Hasbro wants to do gimmicks. But I want them to do pure G1 versions also. We already had a fucked up Deathsaurus in Combiner Wars. Let's get a G1 version to go with Star Saber before he gets fucked up again.

    Around $75 I think, but he also came with the golden disks, mini-optimus, and little Sky Spy drone. I thought it was a decent deal...especially since I thought he was deluxe-sized before I got him in hand.

    One of the biggest benefits of Haslab is so far they're absolutely leaning into the G1 rendition of the characters done so far! There's no getting cute with making characters headmasters or combiners when that's not what they were originally, or in their most widely known appearance!

    Yeah, I 100% want a ‘G1ified’ Bulkhead & Knockout, I want these guys to be able to fit in with my G1 Starscream, Megatron, Grimlock & Prowl, to go with that aesthetic. I love the idea we’ll get more ‘new’ G1 Transformers to fit in with the established crowd.

    Does that mean I want the Prime, Animated, BW or UT fans to be left out? Not at all. I totally understand why you’d be frustrated & hope you get more that you love too. There’s plenty room at the table.

    But I personally love what HasTak’s done from Combiner Wars on really, and think we can all agree that it’s better now HasTak’s moving the focus away from the umpteenth version of Ironhide / Prowl to doing a definite version, then moving on to other guys.

    I just hope they continue this through the rest of G1, and add as many other guys from the rest of Transformers’ rich 35 year history as possible for everyone else too.

    I don’t know why Hasbro has Mainframe labeled as a deluxe figure. He is bigger than some of my voyager and leader figures.

    Probably because he's really simple engineering wise.
    He literally just folds up into a box and has some panels that can also spread out.

    I think with how Hasbro is approaching Menasor, we’re going to get huge updates to the combiners in the near future. I would even love it if they squeezed in a Titan-class Volcanicus the same way they did with SS Devastator. Can you imagine a Comander Grimlock and 4 Leader Dinobots combining into a huge Monstrosity? I can and it would be glorious.

    The only one they don’t really have to update much is Superion, IMO. He’s such a well done figure who just needs the new hands and feet really. Maybe update Silverbolt just so his alt mode looks better? Possibly downsize Predaking? Although I do love the Titan one they made.

    I’m not sure I’ve seen many size comparisons in robot mode. How tall is he?

    A bit taller than Scourge but shorter than Cyclonus. Also a full head taller than Ironhide, the old “biggest deluxe figure.” 5931BF87-27C2-409D-B7F6-02A4974165CD.jpeg

    Still waiting on my Scourge to arrive. Was too late for the first pre-order and he pretty much sold out quick here in my country. Got 2 Sweeps and Cyclonus so far. The Mainframe figure looks ok but so out of place imo. Just something they actually had to add, due to the Titan being as simplistic as is.

    Personally, I like the trend of all recent Titans coming with a smaller figure to play around with

    That's not a "trend", by the way. It's literally all of them.

    Metroplex - Scamper
    Fortress Maximus - Spike and Cerebros
    Trypticon - Necro and Full-Tilt
    Omega Supreme - Countdown
    Scorponok - Zarak and Mega Zarak
    The Ark - Mainframe

    Shit, all this talk about Titans made me realize that I'm gonna have to drop some big dosh for a Fort Max if I want all the main Autobot head honchos.

    Dai Atlas too, I guess, but eh. Not owning an exclusive 3 pack is a lot easier on my mind :lol

    FYI someone just listed a fort max for a pretty reasonable price in the BST. If I didn’t have one already i would have gone for it
