So, I need a recommendation of what figure to get. And don't give me that, "you can form your own opinion" or "it depends on which one you truly prefer". Which figure should I get: trailbreaker (I already have hoist), smokescreen (I already have barricade and bluestreak) or sunstreaker?
I always try and go for mold variety...sunstreaker.
I’d rank Smokescreen the highest, but if you’re feeling mold fatigue then Sunstreaker is a close second.
You need to decide which characters are most important to you and therefore belong in your collection. I'm not a completist and can't buy them all, so I decided awhile ago which ones I was going to buy.
Figure out which guys you really need and make your purchases based on that. Prioritize the ones that are the most difficult to find and save the more readily available characters for later.
So which one do you recommend?
1) Trailbreaker, 2) Smokescreen, 3) Sunstreaker.
Disclosure: I own none of those figures but have their corresponding re-molds. Sunstreaker is last due to his huge paint mismatch issue; if you like that mold, go for the GS set.
I have all, they’re all fun so just go with your favorite character. I would pick trailbreaker since I need a forcefield
The G in CHUG stands for Generations which earthrise is in
Sometimes they fill out the max parts count and have to sacrifice a roller
Just wait for the Kingdom one
Just need toy eyes and toy belt
Optimus Hesistated. Megatron would've gotten him anyway. Seriously, can we end the hot rod hate for this? Its almost like it was a character flaw
Yes they can. They obviously didnt have any slots open for them so they poured them into netflix
Check each toyline's page on TFwiki, far better descriptions and images. See for yourself ahat works for you. Dont rely on other's opinioms cause everyone wants different things.
That being said i feel ER megatron is superior for its Floro Dery accurate Head, waist and leg pieces.
They're core class, obviously, so Kingdom
i may just be a turbo revvin' young punk but im not one to easily be content with the half assed parts of Hasbro trying for G1 toon accuracy!
Customs-men! Guide me! For what paints are ideal for WFC trilogy figures?! I must know!
You don't know which characters you want in your collection?
If you want them all, I'd get Smokescreen before Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker. He's probably in shorter supply than the other two, having been out longer.
Curious thought but had megatron been made with a leader budget could he have been a better figure??
So I think my ER Skywarp is lopsided. One leg is longer than the other. I thought I was transforming it wrong but I haven’t found anything wrong that I’m doing. Anyone else experience this? My Thundercracker is fine, both legs are even and he doesn’t lean towards one side.
LoL, This is just a joke. Besides, Gigawatt can go back in time and try something different if he failed save Prime.
Maybe. But who’s to say what they’d do to fill out the rest of the price point. It could just be a mini MP Megatron that is also a tank. But it could also be Megatron with a trailer.
I have yet to get Smokescreen. I do have Bluestreak, which is nice, but I've been hesitant to actually commit to the other 2 Datsun ER remolds cause I actually still think the Siege ones are good, too. I just got Trailbreaker and Sunstreaker in the past couple days. Trailbreaker is good, but surprisingly I find myself liking Hoist more. Sunstreaker however is super slick, so much better than I was expecting regardless of the yellow color contrast differences. Out of all 3 of these, I'd definitely go with Sunstreaker.
I have a feeling Trailbreaker is going to become very hard to find & very high priced soon. He's the only one out of waves 2 & 3 that I never saw at retail. BBTS has him in stock right now but they're selling out really fast. I would go for him first because if you wait, you might end up paying double or triple later.
Sunstreaker is in the same wave so he'll probably be hard to find soon too. The last waves are always a bitch.
1. A coat of plastic adhesion promoter. You can get it at an auto store. I use Dupli-Color.
2. Cheap-ass Apple Barrel paint from Walmart. 50 cents a bottle. Airbrushed not regular brush.
3. A coat of Krylon Crystal Clear to seal it all in. Regular Crystal Clear, not the triple thick.
I just realized I posted in the wrong thread. I will now hand my head in shame and say 10 Hail Marys and 20 Our Fathers. Please, forgive me.
