Weapon: Gattling Gun
Site sponsor Robotkingdom has updated their pre-order pages for Takara Tomy's Transformers EG Collection figures with in-package images. Below we have:

  • EG01 Optimus Prime
  • EG02 Bumblebee
  • EG03 Prowl
  • EG05 Hound
  • EG06 Megatron
  • EG07 Starscream

They all share the same card back. The listing for EG04 Smokescreen and EG08 Airachnid have not been updated, and still use stock imagery.

Huh, That's odd. The EZ Collection has been put under the generic Transformers label, instead of Transformers GO! Kinda like our generic 2010 lines.

At first I was like: Damn, these molds again?!

But then I was like: Oh snap, I like that grey Megatron tank.

Takara is really milking those molds! They are good molds, though.

EZ = Easy, if you follow the American pronunciation. And EG probably stems from EZ + Go!.

"EZ" = a pun on "easy"

"EG" = a cross between "EZ" and the "G" in "Transformers: Go!"

Nay. He's a new size class called "Legends class", which is a tad larger than Legion/old Legends and a smidge smaller than Commander.

I know, I have him 2 meters to my left.

I just don't like the gundam proportions, and the windshield + head.

That's why me wantz a voyager sized updated version of that legion or the upcoming Commander. The Deluxe sized was a remake of the Robot Masters Optimus Prime which was a remake of Masterpiece 1 Optimus Prime. His truck mode is horrible and head looks bad. Other than that, he should've been the voyager mold and the voyager mold should've been a deluxe class.

end of grumpy rant.

Yet, the Legends one (not Commander) is based off the IDW design, which itself is a Movie-ized version of the Classics Voyager.

Kinda disappointed they didn't include the weapons for Prime, Prowl, and Starscream. Heck, Starscream has the posts in his wings for them. Is it because the weapons were done in a previous EZ line?

The weapons are Hasbro only. TakaraTomy choose to keep them simple and omit the weapons it seems (only 4 molds have them anyway), but the retoolings remain.

And sadly, I cannot pick up any of these. The rules tied to my "30 strong" project dictate that I be frugal with the remaining 5 free slots (3 Autobot, 2 Decepticon). So unless they put out characters that already have slots in my collection... I guess this is the only time I will regard this set. So Takara Tomy? Dinobots. Give me that and I will toss even more money towards your direction. :lol:

(And guys, I do recommend trying to do this. It is mentally taxing, but has its own emotional rewards in the end. :D)

Oh, and on a side-note, I do acknowledge that I should have not rejoined in 2012. I might even retire here due to lack of people I can chat with. However, it did give me an excuse to start my own blog. So between Q3 2013 and Q1 2014, expect to see one be made by me. And when it comes to any G1 topic, I will make sure that every character I write about makes even my published works seem "amateur hour-ish." :lol:

The weapons first showed up in a Takara line after the original molds were released in the states.

I'm fairly sure that's not true. If I recall correctly, it was Asian-market-exclusive Hasbro product that later came to the US as Toys R Us exclusives (I have no idea if or how it was released in the rest of the world, but we have Europeans and Australians here who can hopefully shine some light on that.)
We're all just products of our programming... And there always seem to be a few glitches.

The Weapons started in Japan. The Blasters started with Metallic Starscream and later the GDO Thundercrackers.

The Sword started with GDO Motorbreath, but also there was the super rare dollar store Prime with Red sword.

Hoist is GDO unique, but Silverstreak started in Japan. Wish they had a black one for Prowl, but w/e's...

All of the Legion class molds who that were retooled to have handheld weapons first received their retoolings and weapon accessories in the GDO line, which was Hasbro Asia.

GDO Legions Bluestreak, Motorbreath (and his non-GDO redeco Optimus Prime), Hoist, and Thundercracker (and his non-GDO redeco Starscream) were the first releases of these four molds to be remolded with the new weapons.

All previous uses of these molds, be they from Hasbro or TakaraTomy, did not feature any remolded hands, holes, or new accessories until the the GDO versions came along.
