  1. I would rather have him gray. It could just be face paint then. And to me it looks like there is dark gray paint on his lower body and arms so I am doubting this holo thing.

    Look at the comparison pics again though...

    The Dark Gray you're seeing on his arm, is the strap that's Brown in the other version. So yeah, they're painting some of the details on him, like the head band and grenade belt, and who knows what all on his lower body, but just like with the Electric Eel, parts will be painted over top the clear plastic.

     

    It's not being done like the TOTALLY holographic Zartan exclusive figure was, or the 12" female figure being offered at MC along with the Jungle Viper. It's clear palstic with painted details for effect I guess.

     

    Mirages whole head is gray except for the head band, so I don't see it as being camo or anything.

    Do I see eyes on the artic mirage? as weird as this might sound, maybe they painted him to appear like he was wearing a ski mask? A stretch I know, but hasbro has done some weird paint apps in the past..

  2. I think I better stay clear of this.

     

    After the tragic events of 911, wearing something like this out in public will assume that you are a terrorist.

    You're kidding right? I mean no offense, but don't you think that's a bit of a stretch?

     

    (I always get a kick out of pics where people are dressed up and still have on their coke bottle glasses, contacts people! ^_^ )

  3. I don't care what it is. I own all 3 previous ones and will own this one if it makes it out!

    Agreed, I will get it pretty much no matter what... But if it were to be in a night force color scheme i'd be even more excited.. ;)

  4. I think the Night Force pack is great (so much so that i bought a couple extra sets and Frankensteined some more figures into it) especially when you have them with the jungle strike humvee, a defense mech, and some 97-98 joe vehicles.

  5. They both do certain things better than the other...

     

    If it weren't for Hasbro we wouldn't have awesome figures like Armada Skywarp, Destructicon Scourge, Alt Blue Tracks (Takara did it after Hasbro did), Energon Ultra Magnus, Universe line, so on and so forth.

     

    Where Takara comes in with unaltered figures (G1 re-issues, MPOP), awesome exclusives and repaints (upcoming mini-cons), and the Robotmasters line.

     

    So I don't think you can really say one or the other in my opinion, they both bring a lot to the table and make up for the others short-comings.

  6. I know most of you here are REALLY loyal TF fans who just love and soak up just about anything Takara/Hasbro produce...... TF-wise, that is :).....

    BUT, could ANYTHING *gasp* shatter your faith?? :unsure:....

    make you abandon the collectin' of TF franchise items.... forever?? @firedevil@

    Ya know, just turn your backs on 'em.....permanantly??

    Could YOU ever see yourself doin' that?? :huh:

    I, for one, could!!! :P

    @hmmm@ The way the Alt/BT line is goin', right now, I might be done with 'em !!! Wheeljack sucks (coulda been better, anyhow)....Prowl stinks, too IMO @grumpy@ ....

    I don't think I'm completely done with buyin' TFs just yet, though ;)

    Just wanted to see if ANY of you could EVER just disassociate yourselves from this TF stuff....at least temporarily (like a few months).....

    Has the thought even ever crossed your minds??

    I might be ready to go cold turkey....for a moment, anyway.....

    My faith in the once-great Alternators is bein' SORELY tested right now!!! :(

    How about YOU??

     

    #US1#

    So two figures (Wheeljack and Prowl) make you want to stop collecting alternators? Wow....

  7. I assume this thread was made because of what Hasbro did to GI Joe. Those poor bastards, cancelled (oops "furloughed" and replaced with Yugioh meets Halo....

     

    If they went back to G1 and did an X-treme Version with Gobot style vehicles and stupid crap like renaming Jazz "Crunk" or making Bumblebee Jamacian or other nonsense like that they could poison burn me out

    Exactly.. But would "Crunk" come with a pimp chalice?
