I have to agree with you there. I'll buy him, but he's definitely staying in alt-mode.
Ghostbusters Prime is one ugly Autobot.
Here’s an unpopular opinion. I don’t like Autobots. I don’t care for the toys or the characters. Don’t care for Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, etc. the only Autobots I own are the monsterbots. When I was 8, the first transformer I got was Huffer and I was disappointed. My dad never understood why I liked the “bad guys”. I always thought the decepticons had the cooler alt modes. And having grown up with the Marvel Comics, I felt they were always the more interesting characters.
Garou is that you?
My very first TF toy was a bad guy, but I decided as a kid that having only bad guys were boring-they needed some good guys to beat up! So I ended up buying some Autobots too, and now my collection has a mix of them.
As a kid I had a handful of them, but they were always in some state of disassembly or disrepair, strung up so Shockwave could walk past them like in the Marvel comics. As an adult collector, I’ve had some, either as gifts from family or friends, or they came as part of a set with some other character I was after. Inevitably I end up selling them off, they just don’t hold any interest for me.
My wife has some as part of her Lost Light collection, so I guess if I need some to torture they are available.
I love MP-10G and I think he’s a perfect repaint. Apparently though since MP-10 has been repainted so many times, for some because he is the latest in a long line of repaints it makes all of MP-10G’s coolness invalid.
Like, isn’t this the type of repaint we SHOULD be supporting?
I would like to see a BJ and the Bear version of MP10.
That's Motormaster, not Optimus.
What about a travelling fair based Optimus with a ride/playset Mash up with Dungeons and Dragons, TR Alpha Trion redo as both Venger and Tiamon.
I like base modes, they added another display option and evoke the Micromaster bases.
Also I think everyone being a headmaster was cool and really not a big deal. Titans Return was a “dream come true” toyline for me.
Honestly it was a lot of fun. Micromasters are one of my favorite G1 subthemes. If not my definite favorite.
On topic - I've never transformed my Fort Max now that I'm thinking about it, but I prefer his robot mode to Metroplex any day of the week. Especially once you get a sword for him.
Off topic, what was that from? I can't stop laughing at it.
Back on topic - I'm sure I've posted it in here before, but I was talking about it recently on Facebook and it got stuck in my craw. I will pick Deluxe Brainstorm over Voyager Brainstorm every time. Better colors, good articulation, more stable in my experience, more in scale after the other Headmasters were all rightly Deluxes, and the head manages to evoke both G1 and IDW depending on the artist.
Hm. Generations Metroplex and Fort Max have terrible base modes in my opinion. And they’re too hollow to have a satisfying weight for their size. I really prefer Maketoys Utopia; his city mode isn’t particularly interactive but at least it looks like a city.
But the G1s are still my favorite for both characters.
The new Siege Springer looks better than Thrilling 30 Springer. And yeah, I get that they’re going for different looks.
Backpacks don’t bother me unless they hinder articulation.
As much as I would enjoy new characters, I really don’t mind the continual rehashing of G1.
A Masterpiece Armada Optimus Prime would be something I would probably never buy and I hope it never happens just so they can make something else instead. That being said, I have a feeling it will happen eventually and it will probably be a fantastic design.
I would like Takara to make all the carbots, but I don’t have a NEED for them to do so.
Against my better judgement, I’m probably gonna buy the new Siege Jetfire. He looks so GOOD.
Is this a radical opinion? Because I'm right there with you on this one.mine also had terrible QC issues.
Scrapmetal is overrated dont see how good he is
As a child of the '90s who didn't begin to appreciate G1 designs until this time last year, I hope the rehashes don't stop anytime soon.
Again, as a child of the '90s who grew up on Armada, I probably wouldn't buy a Masterpiece Armada Prime either. But if the right 3P decided to make one (keeping my eye Fanshobby), I'd definitely consider it.
Although die-cast has its uses, its one of the most overhyped aspects ATM.
Bigger is not necessarily better, put Siege Leader Optimus next to TR Leader Prime which one would you pick?
I remember it being one at the time he was announced, but it may have just been people being salty about him getting two toys relatively close to each other. I barely had the Deluxe for a few months before I found a friend to sell the Voyager to and I've never looked back.
