Also on some other TF site that won't be named, there is a clear shot of Star Saber with a sign that CLEARLY shows 'no pictures'. LOL.

Then why include it in the first place? As I said unnecessary.
Because he had it on his back in the cartoon:

And it's not like the tire doesn't go anywhere in altmode:

Never really saw that as a spare wheel, isnt it supposed to mirror mold marks from the original toy?

Image

Besides the animation model doesnt have half of his roof hanging of his back. I just think they could have handeld his tranformation a little better, a this juncture I would say ToyWorld Bii looks tons better than this. he certainly has a cleaner bot mode.

It actaully looks like a clean robot-mode to me. By itself, and certainly compared to older iterations.

Image


TW03BII also has a back piece and it looks even more prominent.

Image

Image


Additionally TW03BII is missing nearly all the windshields around his torso, his hips aren't yellow, and head isn't cartoon-accurate (copied from Henkei it seems.) It does look like a cool toy, but I think MP-21 is "it."

I agree it is head and shoulders above the Classics mold, and I suppose this is a case of each to their own, but I still feel that Bii wins out in terms of the final product, BTW the side on view of Bii is slightly mistransformed, the back pack does tab in a little more than that resulting in a slighlty more streamlined look.

Transformers Cloud TFC-A03 Hot Rodimus and TFC-D03 Shockwave Price Details and Package Art

Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
With the Takara Toy Fair craze still going on, we have some pricing details of the recently revealed Cloud TFC-A03 Hot Rodimus and TFC-D03 Shockwave! According to Takara Tomy representatives who were present at the showroom, both figures will be individually priced at 5,940 Yen, which is roughly $54 US dollars, a considerably cheaper price than previous entries to the Cloud series.

Also revealed is the package art for the pair, which has been mirrored below!

Image

To recap, Hot Rodimus is a redeco of Generations Springer, and Shockwave is a redeco of Generations Whirl.

That's almost half the price in US dollars! What was the original price in Yen? Is the price difference for the Japanese as severe, or are we just suffering from US retailer markup?

I had to look it up.

I think it must be. They went for the same price over there. I still don't know why they were marked up so high here. I'm not a big fan of the "$20 mold going for $60" trick though. I like paint aps, but I mean these were nothing really special.

How can you say that when the Masterpiece is not even out? Also let's not forget we're also getting Spike with him for around $50 while Toyworld bii is $70 bucks...

New Offical images of Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave, Prime Ultra Magnus teased

Postby mooncake623 » Tue Jun 24, 2014 7:31 am

Weapon: Concussion Rifle
Thanks To takaratomymall and e-hobby we get official images of the new Cloud Rodimus and Shockwave figures. Rodimus is a repaint of the ever popular Generations voyager Springer and Shockwave is a repaint of the more recent voyager Whirl figure that was just released earlier this year.

Takaratomymall also added a part of the Transformers Cloud Story to their site and an art image where Prime Ultra Magnus is teased?

Please take a look at the images we mirrored below for your viewing pleasures and Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!

Welp, looks like Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus will be repurposed as Cloud Ultra Magnus, for these reasons:

1) In Japan, Ultra Magnus never appeared in Prime in that form, as Beast Hunters was replaced by GO!
2) Cloud mainly consists of figures "skipped" for the main Jspanese lines: GDO Megatron and Brawn, Gen. Doubledealer and Whirl never had a Japanese release until Cloud. That will include Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus.

With that said, who will be his Decepticon counterpart?
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower and Wedge (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I don't like either of these molds, and the purple just makes it look even worse on Shockwave. I wish the Springer mold wouldn't be so damn lanky. I do like the colors for Rodimus, if I do get it, it'll probably be displayed in car mode.
