Preorder cancelled. Both Hasbro and Takara obviously have done a **** job, so I'll just keep enjoying my cheapie one from Walmart. So much for the bullet and shell marks on the prototype. The rust has turned into blood, too. Absolute ****.

If he just had some rust on his head, I would buy him. His head looks too plain as-is.

EDIT: Hmmm, it's really starting to grow on me already. I may pick him up anyway...

To be fair, his rust/battle damage detailing in the movie was way too complex for a mass-release toy- they'd probably have to be individually hand-painted for a remotely accurate look, and that's not practical for mass-productions toys.
WANT LIST:
Armada Demolishor
Beast Wars Scavenger/Transmetal Inferno
Cybertron Ransack
Complete Seacons (don't care about MISB as long as the toys themselves are complete, in good condition and with all their parts/accessories)
Legends/Cyberverse Insecticons
Beast Wars Rampage (Japanese or Western version)
As many 5mm post weapons as possible!
(Current) HOLY GRAILS:
Full Hercules set
MP-03 Starscream (Japanese version)
Complete G1 Trypticon

I really like this rust mode OP. I hope the actual product you get in hand looks as nice in that alt mode.
I'm wondering if each figure will basically have it's own rust design to a degree. Is it done by hand would ya think?

Right, and it's the Takara version that transforms from a movie-accurate rusty truck into a non-movie-accurate albino robot.

If they're super-cheap, I can totally see somebody transplanting those onto leader class figs.

Either way, both are super creepy, especially the Bumblebee head.

In case no one noticed, this guy has not combined Snarl's two accessories to form the axe. Also, he's positioned Snarl's wrists incorrectly.

Yes, his axe is misassembled, but it's my sad duty to inform you that those are how his wrists look. His wrists are permanently stuck up in the awful position.

I hope at least some member of the TF community finds a figure with compatible mushroom peg hands. Or a 3d Party pair of hands.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Stomp and Chomp Grimlock Commercial

Postby Va'al » Tue Aug 12, 2014 10:37 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Coming at us from the official Transformers YouTube channel is the new commercial for the biggest Dinobot around: Stomp and Chomp Grimlock! This simplified transforming mammoth (well, T-Rex) features sound effects and lights in both modes, and an Optimus Prime figure with magnetic weapon activating gimmick - check out the embedded clip below!

I saw this at a local T'R'U, and I can't say I'm impressed. Yes, it's huge. It's got a big frickin' sword and has a gun mounted on top. It's got lights & sounds. And different one-step changers activate different thingys.... so they say. Heck..... just reading all that back there sounds impressive! :-)

But who would want to buy a toy that costs as much as Masterpiece for their kid???

And a close second... the lower jaw on the t-rex mode really bothers me. The lower jaw splits down the middle and folds away into the body during transformation. But it doesn't hold together very well in place. At a small touch, the lower jaw just comes apart. The "peg & hole" (if that's the words) that hold em together aren't very tight. And I saw this across 3 different locations.

If the price was right (and that's a big IF) I could appreciate the toy for all the things stated above. But that jaw really bugs me.... because my son's one-step-changer Snarl has the same issue with its head.

If you're willing to get creative with a saw and drill (and splash out a bit) you could probably cut down the awful wrist-mounts and mount his hands on revoltech joints, giving him better poseability and less crappy-looking wrists.
