    I kinda don't get the idea of doing cybertron updates if hastak's gonna do UT updates, aren't the energon/armada guys kinda in more need to be updated than the cybertron ones?

    Guys like energon optimus prime, armada smokescreen, armada sideswipe just kinda seem more in need of new figures.

    People mostly seem to hate the defects.

    I don't get why some people are obsessed with backs

    I mean he ain't special,
    In all seriousness, something has to be compromised, atleast it's the back of the figure and not the front.

    :eek: 

    I would have preferred to have had extra, cybertronian styled, weapons instead of Battlemasters. I've just about modded and painted them all into something less clunky :2c:

    Cybertron is the safest bet and generally the most warmly received. I agree though, they all need their due time to shine. And Beast Era. And G2. Hell, Japanese/Euro G1 too, literally anything than another fucking Sunbow rehash.

    And while I have everyone's attention: can we stop with the "I'll wait for the KO's" mentality? At least buy the official as well, support the real makers when you can, don't only go for the cheap rehashes because they're inflated to absurd sizes and have a few extra steps.

    Seige Bluestreak looks great from the waist up. The Prowl mould absolutely ruins him. Looks like they stuck them to the wrong robot.

    How else would you prefer they did him? I don't understand what the problem is

    Proportionately. Same goes for Prowl and everybody else on that mould.

    Its not that it's short, its that its disproportionate.

    I'll grab him because I like Bluestreak and I intend to get Barricade, but damn that mould is not good.

    Oooh, gotcha. I agree though, Bluestreak does wear that mold the best. I think it's the muted colors, the others are too bright and Barricade just doesn't look good.

    I kinda just think cybertron and it's toyline is fine how it its really, I'd rather just buy all of those guys than wait for updates. eh...most of em. I would also like to point out guys post 87 also need more love, mainly pretenders and action masters with some other stranglers, I just want my entire chug collection to be complete someday and said guys like rollout, mainframe, splashdown and others should also get updates. But yea, everyone should get some love, not just the big guys like beast wars but more obscure and lesser known lines like universe 2003 or transformers go. This leads back to the idea of a toyline that is a grab bag of everything throughout transformers history that can be a good way to get updates of figures from lines that are too much of a risk to make alot of em. hastak just name a transfromers line "generations" and sell everything and anything under that line so It can stand next to wfc and ss sorry about that, got a bit carried away

    It’s back, you know the thing people complain about? I’ve never seen him on an mp-44 or why he’s bad if he’s on mp-44 I made a funny thinking that people complain about mp-44’s back are complaining about how he looks with the minicon on him. Was it funny? Probably not

    Override needs a new toy, I've always hated the proportions on her original one.
    Jetfire's toy is really good, but I'd like one without a big hole in the middle of bot mode.

    Other than that they don't NEED updates, but I'd like to see them again.

    Yes to all of this except Sideswipe. Only good characters should get updates. Sideswipe was not a good character. He was annoying.
