3rd party prototype.
because who else bides me and @LoserBroadside is throwing down Haslab prices for a Titan Broadside
probably not 17,000 people... but after Deszarus you never know...
Is it possible to engineer a broadside with a good plane mode?
Take my money!!
Titan no, Commander yes. The only bots I want in titan class are city bots, the Ark, the Nemesis, maybe Primus, and Unicron. I would take combiners if they were around CW standard size (Not Devestator or Predaking) since the Legacy Stunticons around Titan price all together.
Close to good, I'd say decent, but not at Titan class.
I'd like Broadside as a smaller titan. Same for Tidal Wave. If Jetfire is a commander, then Broadside can definitely be a titan.
I mean shit, imagine having an aircraft carrier big enough to carry all five aerialbots, that would be awesome.
As, um, interesting as that design is, Broadside would realistically scale closer to Sunbow.
"Realistically" his toy would have to be like 8 feet long in alt mode. Titan seems to be the closest we could reasonably get if realism is the goal.
"Realistically" Bro there's a &*@#ing metal dinos- no wait, there's TWO metal dinosaurs in the same picture, Hasbro does not care about realism, especially alt mode scale. Botmode scale is all the rage nowadays.
I'm straight up just using the same word you did:
Obviously none of this stuff is realistic.
Realistically as in, what is Hasbro most likely to do?
Eh, that's still fairly debatable. The other triple changers have mostly been average voyagers at the leader price point. In terms of what's most likely going to happen, I would expect Broadside to follow suit.
I'd buy a Titan-sized Broadside in a heartbeat. You hardly get any sensible playability from a tiny aircraft carrier who holds maybe Powerglide alone.
I'd even buy a Decepticon aircraft carrier repaint just for the novelty of it.
Because Hasbro hates you.
Not disdains or dismisses or dislikes. It is hate. Seething white hot hate.
And its not anyone else. Just you specifically. You know what you did.
Thank you! I remember trying in vain to figure out who that was as a kid!
For Tidal Wave, he splits into three ships. I could imagine one ship making the kibble for a Leader Megatron, and another ship transforming into a smaller bot in the likeness of Energon Mirage.
THIS, I agree with 1000%!!!
I don't excuse it with Astrotrain or Broadside. Astrotrain should be a Commander and Broadside should be a titan IMO.
My (possibly faulty) recollection is that Astrotrain in robot mode was not noticeably bigger than the other triple changes while Broadside was.
Separate names with a comma.
