News Post: Transformers: Robots In Disguise Activator Combiner Soundwave Showcase Video
Will wait for the warrior class. Still, good to see him back in the cast.
seeing a lot of non-combining toys for combiner force so far.
I\'m sure Takara will give him a much more pleasing color scheme.
That was my thought as well.
But what's up with the motivational "You can overcome addiction" music?
Loving the new Laserbeak and Soundwave. Loved the character in TF Prime but they looked so gangly.
How can people still think that Hasbro/Takara don't really cater to fans when they make videos like this? What kid or non-TF fan parent is possibly interested in this behind-the-scenes stuff?
For a toy that transforms in 5 steps, it doesn't look that bad. It's just too bad that Hasbro has become so chintzy with paint applications.
ReproLabels is pretty good about covering that. But yeah, Hasbro's a bunch of cheap-asses.
Looks good to me, I loved seeing the concept art especially.
It\'s just a shame that a) this is currently the only known way to get the new Laserbeak and b) this dude will have as much articulation as the average Armada figure.
Well, there isn't any scramble-city styled combiners yet. That may be the issue i think.
How so exactly?
Well, how much does it even cost for high-quality paint for a large wave of figures anyways? Like, common retail amount?
And with the free minicon to boot. I just surprised neither hasbro or takara considered DOING ARMADA Homages instead of casually milking G1 homages as usual. I mean modern RID focused alot on the minicons, why we don't get full-blown Armada homages, i'd pick up a R.I.D Demolishor up easy if it's done right.
They always do. I'm expecting a more G1-like color scheme and far more paint apps.
Ehh. I guess. It's almost kinda annoying if you think about it. Japan's more flexible budget would end up making them doing that easy. Meanwhile Hasbro tries and plays it safe with lesser paint apps, then again they were the first to release it. I don't know how deco-related things like all that work anyways, so how should i know.
I`m just grateful that Has/Tak is giving G1 nods at all .
Yeah, Too bad they couldn't pull a full blown Machine Wars Homage in the color scheme considering the alt-mode choice.
You know, Soundwave here looks to be a pretty fun toy. I never buy Activators or any other gimmick-formers but I might just cave.
Anybody find it odd that Hasbro is really driving home the \"we based it on G1\" aspect? Like, a decade ago it would have been noteworthy, but now? Not so much.
