Got mine here in PA and love him. Finally one of the figures I was waiting for in this round of TCC is here. Threadshot was the only action master I bought as a kid (and still have him complete).

Good friggin' LORD SCREW SCALE!!!!!!!!! :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM: :BOOM: I want a good toy, not some tiny little thing because of some damned concept that hasn't existed in the franchise since ever!

Well that would be me. I never collected human action figures and never will. It was the fact that transformers were not humans that drew me to them back as a kid. When it came to the 80s cartoons (GI Joe, He Man, Super Heroes, Wrestlers) I would watch them all. But when it came time to take a trip to the toy store, I had to have a transformer. I did get a sky striker which I still own and love, but the pilots rubber band waist snapped years ago and I have no desire to replace him.

Moving foward to today, I have learned to appreciate human characters to compliment my classics shelf providing they scale properly with their robot friends. I have no desire to have these characters bigger, more detailed, or super articulated at the cost of ruining the scale theme my classics collection goes by. I would love to have a mini figure of every human character in the G1 cartoon. But the human characters arent important enough for me to start defying scale and start a stand alone collection of humans. This mentality is probably the reason the CM Corps line wasnt very popular. You really gotta have a strong connection to those characters to have a giant human among your MP collection. Im not trying to speak for everyone as Im often accused of doing, but I know Im not alone here either.

Well, I DO want human figures that aren't tiny, poorly-painted little things that look more like KOs in quality. Some of the G1 humans are my favorite characters in the franchise period, and they've been ignored for far too long. Marissa in the GI Joe scale's a start, but only a start.

As for scale, see my sig.

I do kinda wish/hope that they'd change this toy's name to "Serpentor Prime" instead of "Serpent O.R.", considering the body of that toy.

WOW, this is probably the first time I've found my subscription fig in the mailbox immediately after seeing the news post! And here I thought Michigan was perpetually 3 days behind.

No instructions for Catgut because they aren't necessary. Didn't realize his tail would make such a good gun barrel. In fact, it's sort of easier to get a passable gun mode out of him than discern the best functional double-chainsaw mode, if you don't have access to official pics...or are just to lazy to look them up while playing with the figure.

Treadshot was my first Action Master, and I've already played with this new guy more than this year's other 3 combined!

I use his face as the gunbarrel because tradition. My catgut has a loose neck but I assume I can fix that with a blowdryer and some pliers or something. I'm kind of disappointed the c-clips on Human Alliance whirl's gattlings wont fit in treadshot's c-clip holes. considering filing them down. Still working on a catgut/frenzy combo weapon.

If Treadshot goes on the Club's store for a good price, I'll probably bite. I'm already tempted on Transmutate and Barricade... :HEADHURTS:

Came home to this great figure. It looks great. I wish Hasbro sold the Arms Micron line here in the U.S. :CON:

I've been wishing that for over a year now too, but I was struck by Treadshot's instructions specifying that it's an adult collectable not intended for use by children. Could that be because the Arms Microns haven't been subjected to Hasbro safety tests, and wouldn't meet American standards if they tried? I can't currently find the instructions from the previous Subscription figs, but has anyone checked them for a pattern, like only Barricade "not being a toy"?

Oh, and I already gave my Frenzy to my AM Knockout. Screw Bayniverse pairings carrying over to Aligned, KO needs that saw blade! Now I just need to come up with a proper drill configuration...

Posted by durroth on August 18th, 2014 @ 6:56pm CDT
All of them, including the instructions for Protoform X, say "adult collectible not intended for children". I'm not entirely sure why but I think part of it is to avoid having to retool molds that no longer meet US safety standards to meet them before they can sell the new figures.

do those even exist? theyd have to be like... the size of my thumbnail.

anyways, and this is what im going to do by the way, whats to stop you from having a stand alone collection of human characters from transformers? then they dont have to scale with anything. if youre completely against human figures thats one thing. but if youre passing because of scale issues, that sucks cause youre missing out.

There a handful of detailed figures that scale better with classics than GI Joe figures. These may not be perfect, but they work for me. I just don't have a connection to human characters to want a stand alone collection. I'm sure some people do, but not me. What I find amusing is that in any discussion about the Bay movieverse, so many people complain about the heavy human presence.

Yeah, that seems to be the dichotomy of human depiction and focus in TF fiction.

If the robots are the main focus, and have some humans thrown into the mix as supporting cast who become likable in their own right, then TF fans usually feel alright about them.

If the humans are the main focus, with the robots feeling like the secondary characters instead, then a lot of TF fans might view those humans as taking away from the robot focus and not like those humans as much.



And then there are rare cases where the focus between robots and humans is split evenly half and half between the two, which makes the game of whether or not TF fans take a liking or a disliking to the human characters really interesting. :lol:


I think the only cartoons (I'll use that medium since it's easier to use over the comics and other media) that managed to have a heavy human presence and focus over the robots and still have the human characters viewed in good light by the fans were Masterforce (for integrating the humans into the war in the unique way it did) and Rescue Bots (for having a team of writers that actually know how to competently write characters and completely avoid giving us any "idiot" characters).

Got my Threadshot in the mail today as well and it was a complete surprise this time as my intronets was down. He is really cool, and since I don't have the Warpath figure, new to me. Still loving the arms microns. Now at least I know that #5 is going to be Chromedome since Rewind was shown to be #6. Chromedome is the main one I have been waiting a year on.

I would want my human figures to be in somewhat close of scale with my Transformers. That Dr. Arkeville is about perfect, but not Joe size. And like Rated X I don't care enough for the G1 humans to have a stand alone collection, I would love to have some but not like that.

Treadshot? I still haven't gotten Thrustinator (still CANNOT believe that name...and we thought "Nexus Maximus" was dirty) yet, just an email a week ago that he's being shipped. Dammit, I better contact the club again...

So, question. In order to get the Marissa figure, does one need to join the actual Club? I'm not a member, but I am thinking of joining it.

Okay, then. Thanks. I guess so I can get my first human figure for my Classics shelves, off to join the Club!
