  1. 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.
  2. "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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. As far as the listing goes on BBTS, there's no images for Goku. So they might have done something different. Maybe...hopefully. GT SS kid Goku? Battle damage first transformation SS Goku? Saiyan armor SS Goku? It really is a shame they're not doing any more build a figures. I'd love to have seen "5th" form Cooler, King Cold, Super 13, full power Bojack, Hirudagarn done through multiple waves or even a giant Piccolo or Lord Slug. I'm not too upset about them reissuing older figures though. Certain figures were scalped and difficult to find for some people who didn't know to check Walgreens. I wish Hasbro did it more with Marvel Legends. It's a pain now to get certain figures. With how often they release new waves, it's difficult for people to purchase everything they want so the ones with high aftermarket prices or scalping issues being reissued would be welcome.
  9. I don't know about having the three of them in only a deluxe box. I doubt they're going to combine though. I'd rather have had the three of them as a voyager. This way they could make sure they had enough tooling and moving parts. They don't look horrible though so maybe I'm just overthinking it.
  10. I just hope the new molds here will be better than Cell. He looks good at least and his arms are fine but the rest of the articulation kinda sucks. I know not to to expect the most amazing toys ever but I was disappointed with Cell. And yeah, if they're not going to be doing any more build a figures then they should at least have some effects parts or something. Overall though it's still a really good way to get the characters for pretty cheap. Especially with how many they've made so far. Trying to get some of the Figuarts on the aftermarket is just crazy. I even tried to preorder from Amiami and the like and they sell out so quickly that I don't even bother trying anymore. I'm not too crazy about collecting Dragon Ball figures though so these suit my needs well enough.
  11. Kinda wish I had some extra, extra money to spend on this. It looks amazing. I love Slim Jims, I love the Macho Man and I love the Macho Man Slim Jim commercials. I'm constantly quoting them at random like some kind of tourettes. But an exclusive for figures I don't collect is not high on my priority list.
  12. I don't know anything about this character either but I tend to get every Fate Figma I see. They just have some really interesting designs usually. Who am I kidding though, I get almost every Figma I see. They're really good figures. I'm so glad they're reissuing female Corrin. Due to them changing the date on the original and the hurricane that went through my area, I didn't have internet and couldn't add her to the next months stack. It's so stupid that Amiami makes you manually add an item that had its release date changed to the next month's stack even though you already clicked on add the item to your stack. Like why would I want this one item by itself when I have five other items shipping this month? Just add the item in with the rest without me having to do it again. By the time I got internet back though, they had cancelled the order for Corrin and had sold out otherwise but I still had time to pay for and ship out that months stack. Just such a stupid system that they use. I really have to get around to setting up my displays so that they're not just sitting in their boxes, in boxes. I have a lighted cabinet ready for them I just need to clear out the junk in front of it and set everything up in it.
  13. Already preordered mine. From Amiami though. Now I don't have to buy the knockoff on eBay only for it to never reach me and have to file a claim. So now I'll have blue, red, white, Shinjuku, of the red and now Alter Saber. Now if only they'd make the Violet Evergarden Saber. Oh wait, that's not actually Saber.
  14. Damn. Shows can't last forever I guess. Stephen Amell probably just wants to focus on his wrestling career lol. AEW came calling with a contract. It would be pretty cool if they started condensing the shows instead of outright cancelling them. Doing a team up show or maybe an anthology style show. The first half of the season can be based around one character then the second half would be based on another. Then the next season's first half could be based on a third character and the second half based on the first character again. Keep each characters story short and cycle them out so that they don't get stale or overexposed. Maybe even have two shows doing the same thing. Season 1a is Batwoman and 2b is Arrow. Season 2a is Legends and 2b is Vixen. Meanwhile the second show could have season 1a be Black Lightning and 2b is Supergirl. Season 2a is Flash and 2b is Constantine. Or swap any one half season for a team-up of two or more main characters. Then also have full team-up, Justice League style seasons. Actually just get rid of all the shows and do three or four of this style show and spread out all the characters between them. There's more than enough characters to focus at least half a season of them every so often. I wouldn't want a whole show based on Wild Dog, Mr. Terrific, Killer Frost, Guardian or any of the other support characters but it would be cool to focus the half season on one of them from time to time. Main tier (most focus and multiple seasons go to them): Arrow. Flash. Supergirl. Batwoman. Black Lightning. Legends. Suicide Squad. Second tier (anyone else tied to the other main tier shows, kinda like limited solo run books. Can even be split into quarter seasons and have two every half season): The Ray. Vixen. Martian Manhunter. Constantine. Kid Flash. Cupid. Vibe. Citizen Cold. Deadshot. Ragman. Heatwave. Black Canary. White Canary. Wildcat. Everyone else.
  15. Shame there's no build a figure this wave. There's so many more they could do. Second form Freiza, Imperfect Cell, Super Broly, Android 16, Syn/Omega Shenron, fifth form Cooler, King Cold.
