Why are all the images on the site hidden in the forum threads?

Figure is ok.

And he's a member of the Elite Guard? That would make him part of Wings of Honor. Not bad looking, he's just missing his Lightformer gimmick. :)

By the by, that marks the three who are straight redecos. Next reveal will show the first of three new heads (not counting the bonus)! :grin:

The colors are AAAALMOST perfect to the G1. Hoping they have one on hand to match plastic for the actual pressing. Looks like the tan could be a tiny bit more orange (which will help differentiate it from Swindle) and the blue a little lighter.

All things considered, it looks really good. The pink and yellow and teal highlights are in there. Head sculpt is really close. Knowing they only get a certain number of new heads, I'm really pleased with this guy in the lineup... and his being able to combine with the Wrecker gestalt... huge win.

Maybe we'll get a third party clunky awesome add on weapon.

Wait, this is Fisitron and he's based on FOC Swindle a member of a combiner team? A team that also has a helicopter in it.
Let me guess, he won't be the only figure in this set that's based on a FOC Combaticon mold.

If that's so, this will be hilarious and awesome. Two sets of combining Wreckers and one of them based on a joke :D

I know they haven't released all the TFSS figures yet, but there are 4 remaining, doesn's mean we wont get the other 4 to make another bruticus/ruination. I highly doubt that though.

Oh, yes, I'd take that. That is, unless we get a Rotorstorm from Vortex. I would like to keep the diversity of the combiner without getting Whirl. If not, that's totally fine, I can live with two limbs sharing the same mold.

So are they doing these reveals weekly? If so, that will give me a reason to look forward to the week.

I wish they would have painted his feet different and not that green. Yeah I know it's to pay homage to the original but those feet. They probably serve him and glow while walking in the pitch dark. :P

Still I will give this guy a good home...'nuff said! :VEHI:

The photos have been changed.

He has orange instead of yellow, the green on his shoulders is orange and on his feet are blue, his Elite Guard symbols is now a standard Autobot symbol. I imagine the orange is to match the other Wreckers.

I'd have preferred hot pink eyes personally. The rest is good.

Simple. They're two different organizations.

One wouldn't count members of the Pretender Monsters as part of the Terrorcons just because they're both monster beasts, would they?

Typically, the Elite Guard operate within a very strict protocol. The Wreckers do not and don't care to know what the word protocol means.

I can agree with that logic, plus I found the initial color layout Featuring the "Wings" more visually striking.

No arguing Rotorstorm and Guzzle. Not particularly attatched to Pyro, so I could care less if he gets a toy or not (unless a second set of combining Wreckers is coming up). As for Xaaron, since he's physically similar to Megatron in the original Marvel comics, I feel that a Megatron toy is a better choice.

And like JRFitzpatrick7 said, the two follow entirely different protocols. The Elite Guard remains within the military laws of Cybertron, while the Wreckers don't give two cents about playing by the rules.

The Elite Guard is a formal, by-the-book entity, while the Wreckers are a black ops unit of loose cannon daredevils regularly working under the radar.

Think of it like this. The Elite Guard is to Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. as the Wreckers are to DC's Outsiders.

Eh, I guess I have a different perspective. I've been in combat before, your characterization and reasoning of why they couldn't be in the same unit just don't make sense to me personally. The book has it's place, but after the bullets start flying you'd be surprised how quickly your view of it changes. It tends to go from hey the rules are "great" to the rules can go pink fuzzy bunny themselves I want to live. I'm not saying that in the transformers universe you're wrong, i just don't understand how they can be, a soldier is a soldier is a soldier.

Nice sidestep. So in whatever continuity you are talking about no autobot has ever served with both the wreckers and the elite guard at different times , and might have picked up both unit badges?

I think I see what's going on here. The bolded part clears this up. I was under the impression you were asking why one couldn't be member of both at the same time, rather than at different times. :oops:

If one wanted to leave one group and join up with the other, then by all means, that's fine. Though, I'd imagine they'd swap out the former team's insignia for the new one's, to illustrate their new allegiance (since ex-members haven't been shown that often to keep their old ones when joining a new group). ;)

Well, at first, I was thinking of Wings Universe (in which the Elite Guard answered to Magnum, who was a character whose entire life and death predated the existence of Ultra Magnus) since this is Fun Pub and its their main Elite Guard universe.

But, now that they've changed this toy from being an Elite Guard Ironfist to a non-EG Ironfist... it could be either IDW Ironfist or a new FOC Ironfist.

That's pretty much the issue with most of the TFSS figures: we don't know. The only ones we can definitely pin down to specific continuities are Jackpot, Ultra Magnus/Mammoth, Breakdown, and maybe Treadshot.

Why are people dissing on the Swindle mold? It's probably one of the better FOC Combaticon molds, and the Roadbuster version (which this toy uses) feels FAR more solid and put together than the original Swindle version did.
Re: TFSS 2.0 Fisitron Revealed (1514859)
Posted by gothsaurus on August 30th, 2013 @ 10:30am CDT
I'm with the other guys above, sadly. Swindle was a really hollow, oddly-angled, shell-former-feeling, too-tall, shoulders sitting in the wrong place, waist-too-low, oddly proportioned figure. It wasn't TERRIBLE, but it had its problems. Also, the head sculpt didn't have the G1 feel. Wasn't square enough and was missing the nose piece coming down from the top — both of which I feel define Swindle's head. It instead looked too bucket-head-y. I'm calling it a 3/5, IMHO.

Mind you, at least its blasters didn't point at the ground on an undersized figure with the gestalt head out in the open... or have a load of extra fins all over... or weird waist kilt-looking flaps and a non-g1-paint-scheme-like-a-diaper-smear. Sheesh. Still holding out for a decently colored Vortex. I loved Brawl, but admittedly he wasn't very bulky compared with his earlier versions. Tight, clean tank though... and cool purple jet details.

BUT given the economy, FOC Bruticus WAS pretty decent all around. Good size and holds together. I REALLY like getting video game bots and cybertron modes. Liked the 3rd ground mode for Brawl... and almost all the color schemes were cool. (save Vortex. poor Vortex.) (I'll save my rant on the gorilla arms at different lengths.)

Wreckers seem a little half-baked, but glad to see them taking notice and making those characters. Sculpts for the heads are good.

Getting an extra Wrecker to swap out is awesome. Hope they one-up it and do Rotorstorm too, which admittedly would have to be a new head. Totally worth it and great to display with this guy... and/or on the Botcon 2010 set with Pyro/Clench and friends.

That said, still hoping for Hauler, Sparkcrusher (maybe in the main Hasbro line?) and SG Ramjet. I like the idea of Red Wing, too. But I digress.

Bravo for Ironfist. Stick closely to the G1 colors and we have a winner. (I'm against the washed out comic colors. I think it would be a flop, like the pastel iGear minibots wave.)

Lol, i just saw this & i beg to differ. your standard operating procedures can and will keep your aft alive when the slag hits the rotors. although certain situations may call for some unorthodox tactics, a warfighter should never abandon their battle principals just because they fear for their lives. that's the quickest was to lose it. or worse, cause a buddy to lose theirs cuz someone went loose cannon. but to each his own i guess. our combat experience in country may have differed greatly. as long as you came back with life and limb intact it ain't my place to hate on how you did it. but don't go puttin those ideas in the youths heads lol.

Of course you have to follow military protocol, I was exaggerating to get my point across, unfortunately I choose my words poorly. Orders and sop's are there for a good reason and should be followed, but sometimes creative interpretation are necessary. Because in the end the "book" doesn't cover everything and combat is a great way to ruin any plan.

I last deployed with the 10th mountain, what about you Jack?

Aww, and here I was hoping the Roadbuster mold meant he'd get the really big gun... otherwise we could just call it Swindle... oh well. Ironfist just needs a really big gun.

All things considered, I am now glad I held off on Rb. Just hoping for a good repaint of another component to go with Topspin Twin Twist, and Imp[actor.

Funny how people are wanting an Emirate Xaaron figure, isn't hat who's head is sticking out of Impactor's aft?

When did we see SG Ramjet? Dirge was the yellow and black one, and I'd LOVE a release of him, even as a dual purpose SG Dirge/Filler Seeker mold like they've done in the past. Knowing them though, FunPub would probably repurpose the G2 Rammy they did for SG. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose...

Red Wing?

Who'd be Hauler? we know there aren't any Voytagers in 2.0 (maybe 3.0?)I've given up on the Inferno mold, three domestic releases and I never once saw any of them in stores. No Inferno, (and I like the Energon version) No Grappel, neversaw a single Hot SPot at TRU (and that was the one of the three I really wanted to go with my Voyager/ULtra Silverbolt, Onslaught, Razorclaw) and the botcon version of Pyro didn't grab me either. But then, I want to repaint a VOyager DOTM Sentinel as Pyro since they're both based on Airport fire engines.

they've ruled out Energon as viable molds so that's a no to Energon Roadblock as hauler too...
