  1. Three of the deluxe figures could be Airazor, Rattrap and Cheetor which make sense as they're all smaller characters compared to the other Maximals. So that's all the season one Maximals mostly likely accounted for. With all the voyager figures supposedly named, could all the season one Predacons really be deluxes other than Megatron who should be one of those two leader figures? Scorponok and Blackarachnia are smaller characters while Waspinator and Tarantulas are medium sized so those four could easily be deluxe figures. However Terrorsaur and Inferno are larger like Tigatron, Rhinox and Dinobot. I'd like to have at least Terrorsaur be a voyager figure if not both. I'd like to see some randoms in the line like Beast Wars had as well. New deluxe figures for Jetstorm, Wolfang, Manterror, Cybershark, Polar Claw, Transquito and others would be greatly appreciated as well, especially any Fuzors or Transmetal 2 figures. I doubt it will ever happen again as too many collectors only seem to want the same characters over and over despite what they say. Hasbro only makes what sells and that's the same six characters ever line with another twelve or so cycled through every other line.
  2. Got my preorder in. Pretty good price all things considered. Still wish they do a version of Lobclaw to match at some point. Half Shell was with Turtler in the comics so he knew of Lobclaw's existence when he made his own team.
  3. I grabbed a green Psycho Ranger. Missed the Legacy version but at least I have one now. The other figures look great but I can't quite fit them into the budget at the moment. Role play items aren't my thing but I do like the stand the morpher comes with.
  4. Shame there's no Lobclaw redeco. I couldn't care less if he wasn't in the original. Scylla is an even more feminine retool of Tentakill. Or rather, the chest and head are retooled but the legs are "detooled". As in they've been reverted back to Moonracer's legs. Like I said, Tentakill is already pretty feminine looking even though it's trying not to be but it's greatly appreciated that they chose to really make Scylla stand out.
  5. I'm not a playset or vehicle kind of collector so while really cool, those are out for me. I'd be down for figures that are meant to be large though. So I guess old Toybiz ML build a figure retreads. Which is good for me as I only recently got into Marvel Legends. I'd say more TF combiners but there's no reason why they can't just release them individually as they do normally regardless if they're Generations or MP. They also do a titan class figure a year so we get large figures from Transformers and all that would be left is a Cybertron/Primus. Maybe an Animated ark/Omega Supreme? An in scale Cybertron Metroplex? More obscure Transformers that wouldn't sell at retail. Hasbro has only done one season of toys for Power Rangers and hasn't released any Lightning Collection zords yet. Maybe they could do monsters that scale with the Megazords they release. Possibly things like an in scale Dino Thunder brachiozord. One that can hold the other zords they make as it does in the show. Same for the Zenith Carrierzord. A Delta Command Megazord too.
  6. I love most of the designs for the sixth and extra rangers and other heroes. So I'll be down for things like Wolf Warrior, Sentinel Knight, Ninja Storm green samurai, Blue Senturion, Shadow Ranger and so on. While I don't want every bad guy, I do want most generals or baddies from the main cast. For the monsters of the week, just a few here and there would be cool. Ones that hold a higher significance on their season or in general and not every one from every season...or just MMPR. Every foot soldier is a must though. Tengu, Z putties, cogs, quantrons, krybots (all colors), chillers and more. As cool as it would be to get the human ally figures, I don't know how well things like this would sell in the grand scheme of things. Power Rangers as a toyline is known as a ranger and bad guy (sometimes) toyline and not so much of a normal civilian line. Things like this would be mostly a long time fans only kind of thing and not so much a thing that parents just purchase for their kids randomly or that kids would really ask for. As a kid, I never really thought about wanting Bulk and Skull figures. It would be great to have a few monsters around the same size as the megazords but I can understand why they don't do that. Instead make the megazords in scale with the rest of the figures. You loose the size and combining aspect but you gain articulation and the ability to make battle scenes.
  7. I see so many people commenting that they don't want to "double dip" on these molds already but I'm sitting here wanting the Transformers Collector's Club version as well now. I'm one of those who has a floppy Piranacon but I like the base figures enough to get another two more sets. I can always tighten up some of the joint to make them hold up better when combined. I just did it to Orthia so that she could hold a custom Botcon Knight Flareup as a weapon without her arms flopping down.
  8. I already made myself a Siege Deep Cover as I never thought they'd make one. Made Tigertrack and Clamp Down as well. Not really looking forward to more versions that are just dirtier though. Do something crazy like make Impactor in his FoC colors or something. Make Red Alert based on Animated Red Alert and use Chromia. However things like this are extremely unlikely as they'd have nothing to do with the show. I just really don't care for figures that are going to clog shelves because we have them already in a slightly different deco that doesn't change them enough to warrant a second, or third, purchase.
  9. It looks great, amazing even. However, I just don't really care. If this had been Beast Wars Bonecrusher instead of Sideswipe then I'd actually care. Yeah I know he's a bison, not a bull but close enough. I'm more trying to say that why make a Sideswipe beastformer or a Hot Rod beastformer when there's an abundance of beastformer characters that could use an updating instead. If you're bothering to make something like this then you're not worried about the limited and niche appeal of it so why not do a niche character anyway. It's just so odd when a third party company finally does something so very very different but still so needlessly G1 at the same time. This is just going to be yet another figure added to the huge list of third party figures I won't purchase unless it's on some extreme sale at some point. If they wanted my money at full price then make something new and unique that does make sense and isn't G1 for no reason. There's more to the franchise than G1 and the live action films. Sure IDW and the FoC/WFC games get some love every so often but they're still mostly G1 characters. I'd love to see more companies do Unicron Trilogy stuff like Galaxy Meteor and Nitro, both of which I own and paid full price for. If you're going to do beastformers then do characters from Beast Wars, Beast Machines and the randoms from other series like Prime/RID instead. I'm not trying to hate on G1 as I grew up on it. it's just so baffling to do something like this, no matter how good it looks, instead of going for another character that was a beast to begin with who could use a new toy.
  10. "the most accurate representation of what Unicron looked like in G1" It's like they didn't even watch the movie. The only time he ever showed up in the movie in those colors was when there were laser blasts near him changing his color. The blasts or effects act as extra lighting sources and that's why they change the color. Unicron is orange and grey with a bluish hue. Not yellow and blue. And the silver, where did that even come from? Sometimes those parts appear white, sometimes just a lighter shade of the blueish grey but never silver. If this is to be the be all, end all of Unicron toys then they should at least get the colors right. I don't plan on spending $609.50 on a figure with the wrong colors.
  11. It is indeed and impressive figure. While I don't always agree with Anthony's Customs, he is correct with some of his complaints about the figure now that I have it in hand myself. The cape's segments should've all be molded as single strands. Also, the feet really do sit weird on the ankles. While it's nowhere near as bad as his video made it look, they do look disjointed. The cape also doesn't look all that bad either. It's just more of a shame than a major letdown. The colors and the overall look though, are amazing.
  12. 2007 Megatron looks pretty damn good. Shockwave too. I still don't like the Chromia mold for Nightbird. It looks amazing but so would anything in that color scheme. I just think that they stuck too closely to the design of Moonracer when designing Chromia. It shares all the limitations Chromia does but doesn't have an arm or leg mode to make up for it. I'm fine if they wanted to reuse the base design as they've done it before with G2 Smokescreen & Energon Starscream as well as with Energon Bonecrusher & Cybertron Hardtop but they didn't do enough different with Chromia to have made it worthwhile to be its own mold. They only reused the hips, thighs and wheels between Chromia and Moonracer so they could've done so much more to Chromia to make up for the initial design having been limited by combiner functionality. I would rather they have done a fifth use of Moonracer instead of a second use of Chromia. The Powerdashers are cool though. Although, I already have stand ins for them from CW and UW. I got both CW and UW Computron to mix and match them for my version of a perfect Computron and the extra Strafe, Lightspeed and Nosecone are now my versions of Cromar, Aragon and Zetar. I'm using UW Strafe without his guns as Cromar. I know, I know, blaspheme. I just think that CW Strafe looks more like what I remember Strafe looking like. It's not like he was predominately featured and I had the toy for years. I go back and forth with Lightspeed and Nosecone though. The CW versions are the colors I want but the UW versions are the molds I want. UW Lightspeed makes for a better Aragon though as I can give him a silver H/F/G to act as Aragon's engine block on the back of the alt mode. The upside down H/F/G on top of CW Lightsteed just looks a tad out of place. Then again, so does G1 Aragon's engine block. The Nosecones are the lest similar though only having some yellow coloring and alt modes in common. CW Nosecone looks so much like the original toy but UW Nosecone is a much better toy and I don't hate the Brawl mold when I say that either. Rook is just such a good figure. Oh well though, the more the merrier. Maybe I'll add the new Powerdashers to my Computron somehow.
  13. I'm really enjoying the Bring Arts line but these FFIX figures are a tad pricey. I got Fei, Elly and Weltall for the same price as one of these FFIX two-packs. Even the DQXI two-Pack costs less. They're not any larger than any other Bring Arts figure and they don't have any extra accessories either. They might seem to have more tooling and might need more paint but I doubt it's really any more than the three Xenogears figures had.
  14. I can't wait to own this figure already. I love how some of the back kibble can shift down to the waist. It looks like Vierge from Xenogears that way. Some of the kibble is left on the back and looks like Vierge's "hair" and the car sides look like the skirt armor.
  15. I was excited to see some Thundercats figures at retail. Then I seen the prices. That price is a tad high. I don't know much about Matty Collector or Super 7 so I'm not too sure if prices like this are normal. Going by comments and videos talking about them though, I don't think they are. I just want some cool toys that aren't too expensive. I don't have enough to spread around these days.
