Earthrise wave 1 deluxe offering is pretty weak compared to siege...
just like so
That's just so damn silly on cliffs part. Maybe that's so they can easily remold that piece for different characters? A different rear lights and front bumper section for BB? Tap-out? The Battlechargers?
Nice, can't wait. The whole wave 1 of the Earthrise deluxes are looking even better than wave 1 of Siege, and that was a great wave. Bring 'em on.
bumblebee will be his own mold per the guy in charge of designing these figures and the battlechargers were a fan vote, the only time a fan vote has been a remold was victorion
This is just lazy. They know people gonna buy Cliff no matter what.
A pass for me.
Yeah they really need to take into account the criticism of grown adults who play with these too and have a sense of entitlement
boo hoo you gotta take piece off. Not end of the world
Oh yes, don't dare to criticize. Just consume and get excited for the next product.
or accept that there are design limitations at that size within hasbros budget and safety requirements and move on. dont like it? thats fine, but that also doesnt mean its lazy
He said, in the "EARTHRISE APPRECIATION THREAD"...
Eh, I don't really mind the back of the car coming off. The flip out peg for connecting it to the robot could definitely be used as some kind of small shield. I'm really happy with the size and variety of ways to use the weapons. He's gonna be a lovely addition to the collection come March!
I hear a lot of people complaining about the grey hands on the Optimus, but either way, I don't care. I think that it's a great Optimus. Maybe even one of the best I've seen.
It partsforms and still remains with hell of a backpack. Nah, I won't call it anything but L.A.Z.Y.
except the backpack doesnt have to be used as a backpack. it could be used as a shield. weapons integrated into alt modes used to be a thing in transformers, its really not lazy, you just have unreasonable expectations
On a lighter note, the car mode is stunning and he doesn't have faux parts, which I also appreciate Eagerly waiting for the 2nd wave of Earthrise.
I wish the hood folded differently on CJ so the Autobot insignia would be visible through the clear glass on the chest. Is it on a friction joint? I'd turn it around if so. I do the same thing on TR Galvatron to make the black piece stick up from the backpack like his 'trigger' ala the G1 toy silhouette instead of flat against the cockpit. In both cases its just adding a lil more partsforming to an already-partsformer to fine tune the look.
Yeah... NO. This is a $20 deluxe that's small for the price point. That means it should have a higher parts count than other, bigger, toys being sold at the same price point.
Making a regular-ass car a partsformer -- and not even a subtle, "optional" kind of way, but a big part that, if missing, completely messes up the altmode -- is lazy, cop-out engineering. It would have been at the old Combiner Wars price point, but it's definitely that at this new higher price point.
Frankly, I don't care that Cliff's got partsforming going on, but I do wonder if it's part of the Earthrise gimmick. Hoists tow truck part is also a part, as is Grapples claw, I wonder if they have similar adapters and there's a swap and play aspect there that hasn't been touched upon.
TBH, I just want a good neo-G1 Cliffjumper and given my FE Cliffjumper is disintegrating on me, this looks even better.
keep telling yourself that buddy, but how exactly does it "completely mess up the altmode"?
you can criticize things while still appreciating something. This sentiment that there should be no negative statements in this thread is ridiculous. Most people understand that an appreciation thread is more of a general discussion thread for that line and not a thread for blind love.
There is nothing unreasonable about expecting a part to stay attached. What an odd thing to suggest
