Ok, I'm going to ask this here, out of curiosity:
When you see a new release, do you try appreciating it for what it is, which character it represents, and its pros and cons, or do you only see the potential for something else?
I'm not trying to attack anyone, just asking after those last comments!(Also because I really just see Ratbat in that figure, and I like seeing Ratbat. )
Oh no, if I got it I'd want it as Ratbat! It'd look great next to GDO Laserbeak and FoC Soundwave.
I just made the comment about the head sculpt because it was bugging me that it looked kinda familiar, with the robot-face-within-a-beast-face aesthetic, when whoever it was mentioned Leozack, I realized what I was trying to remember.
If you're referring to my comment in the Commander Trailbreaker thread...eh, it just doesn't scream "Trailbreaker" to me. He looks too much like he wants to KILL you. G1 Trailbreaker doesn't give off that vibe on sight.
However, a bit after I made that post, I poked around tfu wondering who it could be repurposed as, I realized that it's homaging the red-visored G1 toy, which is kinda cool in and of itself.
Also, Trailbreaker just isn't Trailbreaker without his hologram projector.
