Re: The Loyal Subjects Announces SDCC 2013 Exclusive Transformers Vinyl Figures

In case the Illustration was too big a tease, or not enough tease, or maybe just the right amount of tease. Whatever wets your whistle, right? Here are full reveals of some of the hottest SDCC releases. Cybertron Megatron- Midnight Edition; blister packed with a resealable card. This piece is epic. It's as if you were hit in the face by an incandescent alien life form which looks unbelievably cool. Megatron can harness the power of the sun. In case you were wondering. He's a bad dude. And he will be available to take home This coming Thursday, July 18th at 11a. Only at Booth #5645. That's us. The Loyal Subjects. Bam! Get it. Just $15.00.

Sunstorm - he's a bad dude too. Literally, can hardly contain his own power. He thinks he's divine. Seen dudes like that in Hollywood before. Except this dude is an alien, is fast as lightening and can probably melt all of our faces off. That's some heavy heat. Available at Toy Tokyo. It's their exclusive friends. They're charging $15.00 as well. See you Wed, Thurs, Fri...all through the weekend!

PS We made these. TLS. That's us. Under License from Hasbro, Inc.

I like the descriptions for both of them. Quite humorous! :lol:

So is Megatron's deco supposed to be based on his bomber mode seen in the IDW continuity and the upcoming Generations: Thrilling 30 toy?

It's MegaTRON.. Like TRON Megatron.. You listen to the soundtrack by Daft Punk while you play with the toy.. I dunno.. maybe I'm just going all Stretch Armstrong..

Heh, even this Megatron is mistransformed. Cannon is backwards.

Who buys this crap? I seem to ask this every time stuff like this gets announced, like back when those other stupid vinyl things came out that looked just like this just with even the heads being the same for each figure just painted differently.
Non-transforming super posable super detailed things are crap, but these are somehow OK and awesome?

Is there really that big a market for Transformers figures that don't do the one thing that makes Transformers interesting?

This is like buying a copy of video game that isn't playable. You put it in your console and just stare at the title screen.

Also, Megatron looks like he has microcephaly. The fact that he's holding his gun backwards supports this theory.

I'm guessing the appeal is more towards the characters in the fiction, which are already interesting enough it seems. One doesn't really need for the toy to actually transform if you only need to capture the character's robot mode, right?

I can see where you guys are coming from though. For my video game heroes, I want to interact with them, be it via toy or the games themselves, and not via a movie (which are pretty lousy 99% of the time anyway).

But that's the thing, these don't look like the show characters, they're just lazy ugly pieces of plastic that have been painted differently with a new head. If they where actual action figures with articulation and looked like the show there wouldn't be a problem.
Even Lego mini figures look closer to whatever they're based off than these things.

And the worst thing is, they cost 15 dollars, 15 dollars for something this lazy and simple.
