another thread revival!
last year i pieced together the 2013 machine wars botcon set (and ive been collecting the original MW figures). i feel the set as a whole was really under-appreciated. not only are the homages amazingly done, but the mold choices were great. specifically, i fell in love the seeker trio.
thundercracker might have the worst luck. he looks pretty plain and flat, but he's sooo
true to the source material which i now really appreciate.
starscream has the best luck, probably because he has that fantastic skydive mold. those colors work beautifully, and homage the original amazingly. even that neon green makes sense as the original had missiles of the same color.
skywarp is the middle man. people are probably "meh" about him like TC, but he has more paint apps. again, he is very true to source material. and that mid-teleport deco goin on with the wings is DELICIOUS
. come to think of it, has that ever been done on a previous skywarp? this fella is probably my favorite of the trio.
the 2013 botcon set was done so well, that i hope they expand upon it in the future. i would love to see an updated MW optimus prime and megatron. especially since megatron could so easily be done from the recent CW skydive!
ahhh to have dreams
