Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Scorponok looks pretty cool, but Hasbro's chinsiness at the Titan price point is always disappointing. The originals always look like much more fun as playsets. The new ones just don't come with many accessories, and they feel lacking. Sadly a vintage Scorpy with all his bits is even more expensive...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job)

Yeah, I was using some acetone to soften the pieces first. The plastic took the dye, but poofed up, for lack of a better term for physical distortion. I haven't read about the process in years. I might should try again... having a small hotplate to use outside counts towards that. And yeah, the type...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job)

Nicely done!

The one time I tried dying plastic, it technically worked but deformed the piece badly. Good to see someone else have some luck with it.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Got a link? Sounds interesting. I think I saw it somewhere on TFW a month or two ago, so I don't think I'd be able to find it again. Sorry. :( Is this it? It doesn't have the toy colors versions mixed in, but these are good fun. Also, I saw a couple more Spinisters yesterday. Would you like me to p...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Agreed. Even though he's one of my favourite Marvel characters, a Scorponok that can't fistfight Shockwave doesn't hold much appeal. I completely get why they want to make him a Titan, but a TR Leader with the helmet gimmick would have been the best way to make the character as I visualize him. Doe...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Just thought I'd pop in to say that I found a Spinister a week or two ago as well. He's lovely, really. Also, I found Studio Mixmaster last week, so I'm up to 5/8's of Devastator by number, if not by mass. I also grabbed the 2007 Megatron too, and he easily has enough paint for him and the ROTF Mega...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Masterpiece Raiden now confirmed.

No release date/ETA yet. This will be the first combiner in the masterpiece line, I think.

Unique Toys have showed an early prototype of AoE Galvatron

That's not a transformer. That's some kind of sorcery or voodoo. :eek:

Apparently we're getting a masterpiece Raiden: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/possible-masterpiece-raiden-coming/44268/ To save some googling, Raiden is the train combiner from Headmasters, which was actually a Diaclone figure complementing the likes of Devastator. It wasn't incorporat...

Re: YouTube and the FTC COPPA Act

It was fun while it lasted... Can't say that I've kept up with it, but this in combination with letting companies copy-strike anything they want and also getting to be their own arbitrators on appeal makes it seem like more trouble than it's worth to make videos about any sort of media. Fair use? Wh...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

ALSO also, I'm gonna say now that Overload turns into the lower torso asymmetrically, unlike his Legends-class counterpart. Well, I'm completely wrong about that. New pics of Devastator with the actual figures (with prototypes of scrapper and overload in blue plastic) here, albeit woefully mistrans...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Aye, that's what I like about the movie constructicons and devastator. The designers went absolutely bonkers with them and leaned way into the whole "alien shapeshifters don't really need to default to a human body type, so why should they?" They've dialed it back in the other direction since (proba...

Mixmaster pics, and Devvy's face gonna be reeeeeeed. :) Also, after digging around for pictures of the prototype that was showed a ~year ago, the final toys are a bit different.

Yeah, I'd say it's best to either sell them as-is or paint them for yourself. Anybody looking for Transmetals and Transmetal 2s nowadays knows about the paint flaking. Doing a repair paint job in advance for someone that specifically wants it is one thing, but just to list it on an online flea marke...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Yeah, new Starscream looks like the 2006 mold revisited with more articulation. Here's hoping the 2020 voyager will actually be bigger than the 2006 deluxe. :|

Also, Lord Zarak / Scorponok's head. Pretty neat way to tease the next Titan, I reckon.
