Also...Posted Image "I thought I was supposed to be the masterpiece!"

I can't wait for mine tomorrow. :DMetroplex, that is. I'd absolutely dig a Soundwave but I couldn't convince myself to drop yet another $100 in the same week my Metroplex order was finally filled... But had plenty of time sitting there starting at TRU's website with him in stock to do so.This big guy I'm definitely gonna sticker up. Fort Max is still naked, though.~|ET|~

A lot of Metro's stickers were a pain to apply (took me about an hour to get them all on), but they haven't been peeling yet, so that's a one-up on the Arms Micron stickers. The big guy is pretty fantastic, though. 

 

Also, do not hesitate to buy MP Soundwave. For the price you're paying (I believe the total on mine came out to $132), the TRU set is an incredible deal. Frenzy and Rumble are worth deluxe pricing each. Laserbeak and Buzzsaw are marvels of engineering, as well. Ravage is a bit of a blunder compared to the others, but he's still better than the one that came with Universe Hound. I was lucky enough to stroll into a TRU last week and find the last one on the shelf, but he's a hard one to find. If you see him, buy him.

 

I also just realized that Metroplex and Soundwave are roughly the same price. I still say Soundwave has the most value for your dollar, as while Metroplex has the sheer impressive size, Soundwave still is the Masterpiece toy.

I probably should've gone with Soundwave over Metroplex, but was already charged for the latter when presented with the opportunity to check out with Soundwave on TRU. :( It was just too much money at once. Unfortunately I have no chance to look in store since there simply is not one close enough to me, so it's online only... And that's been a nightmare, what with orders apparently just being cleared mid-checkout, irregular restocks (with the email alert seemingly doing nothing), the time when he was removed from the search feature... yeah...~|ET|~

No, but has anyone seen the full detail picture of TF4 Optimus on the cover of Empire Magazine?

 

I like it. The toy at first made me skeptical of the design, but then when I saw how it looked in CG I liked it. That toy is way inaccurate.

Isn't he actually bigger this time around? (going off of truck mode, and alt mode size has a big influence on robot mode size) Orion Pax would be smaller (if there's a difference)

 

Unless you mean the design. But I did see some low-detail models in various poses, so I do know what most of his body will look like, not just the part shown on the magazine. He seems to have a more compact design, but still be around the same size. Similar proportions too. Most of the truck parts end up inside the robot during transformation. That's why there are no visible windows or wheels.

 

Now as for whether I prefer his TF3 design or his TF4 design, I actually will need to see more high detail renders in various poses. But I do like the TF4 design, no question there.

Beefcake? His new truck mode's slightly bigger.

 

I'm very curious as to who the new main villain is. Or if it's Megatron revived again, or Galvatron, which is technically the same thing but who cares? Either way I'm fine, unless the new villain is lame.

 

And as to Grimlock's appearance.

 

And I do want to see a larger picture of BB, he looked cool from what I could tell by the small picture.

Size isn't what I was talking about. The other one was boxy and had sharp angles. This one is rounder. It just doesn't look like prime to me.

Uh. Yes. I'm pretty sure every Transformers fan likes some aspect of Generations, be it the GEEWUNNers finding a rebooted piece of their childhood, or modern fans finding great toys and characters. 

 

Y'know, this thread is devoted to Transformers.

Yeah. That Grimlock looks INSANE. 

 

The trailer really just represents all of Michael Bay's Transformer films, for better or for worse. 

 

Sadly, the toys we've seen so far seem a bit lackluster, but given the coming Generations line up, I think it'll be palatable when we see more.

I...don't like the designs.

 

Optimus looked cool on the front of Empire Magazine, but in the trailer he just looked...weird. They all did. They're too smooth.

 

Action and story might still be good, so I haven't lost hope for AOE, but design and toy wise, it's kind of a letdown.

Then again like I said, all the AOE designs looked lame to me in the trailer.

If you guys are counting, this may be the second time cool stuff was canceled in wake of a new movie release. Only this time, the stuff potentially being canceled is even cooler....

1392406887002-Drift.jpg

 

(That's apparently a deluxe. I'm dead serious.)

 

On another note, the first toy I ever bot as a newfound transformers toy collector, Generations Springer, now can not transform without the head popping off. In fact, I can't even seem to fit the head through the helecopter/chest nose anymore. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Regardless, it's making me very wary of purchasing modern Transformers toys, especially the ones made in the last few years. Maybe I'll try Animated next time.... I always liked the look of those toys.

I saw some of the AoE stuff just now. 

 

As far as the actual figures go... Nothing special, hope this is just a spinoff line.

 

But some of the robot designs look like they might be neat. I want to know who the red and black car is. He looks like he might look cool.

 

Oh, and Hound is clearly bulkhead. Clearly. He should not be called Hound. Optimus's facemask looks cool. I still think he looks like Orion. And Bee might look cool, But I only have the simplistic figure to go off of.

A trailer is out a new Transformer Game called, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. I personally have not seen it, but I found it on my Flipboard on the gaming subscription that I have. It showed Shockwave on the cover so my guess it takes place on Cybertron when the Tower fell.

Well, the toyline for AOE seems as much of a letdown as the movie's character designs. (Galvatron, you disgrace...)

 

Rise of the Dark Spark will hopefully be good. I have high hopes for that because of the fact that it seems built on the roots of Fall of Cybertron and DOTM the game. Weird name though.

 

We did try Transformers RPGs. They all died out for some reason.

Continuity hurdle time! The official transformers wiki is finally starting to fill in information from The Covenant of Primus book, and easily the most shocking revelation is that:

 

Spoiler

 

In other news, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the garbage I previously posted isn't the main AOE toyline and isn't resulting in the cancellation of the Generations legend figures. Actually, all the Generation stuff, AOE or otherwise, looks pretty fantastic to me. This new multiple age brackets strategy may yet prove to be the salvation of the Transformers toy line....

Yeah, they started by showing off the simplified figures first.

 

That said, even the deluxes and Voyagers look too simplified, in my opinion. Just too play-skool.

Continuity hurdle time! The official transformers wiki is finally starting to fill in information from The Covenant of Primus book, and easily the most shocking revelation is that:

 

Spoiler

 

In other news, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that the garbage I previously posted isn't the main AOE toyline and isn't resulting in the cancellation of the Generations legend figures. Actually, all the Generation stuff, AOE or otherwise, looks pretty fantastic to me. This new multiple age brackets strategy may yet prove to be the salvation of the Transformers toy line....

 

Spoiler

 

Basically, that is entirely...(loses one eye) illogical. (Puts eye back in)

 

I just looked at every AOE toy and they all look like scrap. Optimus' AOE redesign in the movie was disappointing enough, but the toy's inaccuracy to it makes it look five times worse. When you see ROTF Leader/DOTM Jetwing Optimus, this kind of thing just becomes inexcusable.

As far as I can tell, I think that Hasbro has decided to split their toys into "little kid play" and "legitimate figure" in order to cater to two of their main audiences: The bigger audience, as you can tell by the focus from the AoE line, consists of the kids - they are given simpler, gimmicky, fun figures. The collectors, a much smaller group, are essentially relegated to whatever comes out in the Generations and Masterpiece lines in that they remain up to par with their higher standards. 

 

I can't say that I'm too upset about that, because there are fewer decisions for me to make and I still have so many Transformers I want to buy...

 

Sandstorm, Whirl, Swerve, Roadbuster, Masterpiece Soundwave (some day, baby), Generations G2 Dreadwing...

It certainly seems that way. Maybe there's still hope for a legitimate AOE Optimus. It did take a while for Jetwing to come out for DOTM.
