They're crazy posable as far as shitty SD vinyls go. Think Legends Class TFs.

Can't get enough of the super deformed, super cute officially licensed Transformers action vinyls from The Loyal Subjects? Well, there's good news for you today, as we've now got a fresh look at the upcoming Wave 3 from their Instagram page.

Image


This wave looks to contain fun interpretations of Generation One characters Hound, Blitzwing, Wheeljack, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Rumble, Frenzy, Long Haul, Scrapper, Scavenger, Trailbreaker, Swoop, Sludge, and Sunstreaker. Whether or not this is the entire wave, or if any of these are limited chase figures, is currently unknown.

Information on the availability of this wave is also currently unknown, so whether this will also be exclusive to Hot Topic stores as Wave 2 was remains to be seen. While you wait for this wave, why not check out our Loyal Subjects Galleries?

Keep it locked in to Seibertron.com for all the latest breaking Transformers news!

I'm not touching these until I know if they've got rid of those cruddy ball joints from the wave 2 line. Why would you even want ball joints on these things :???:
Re: The Loyal Subjects Wave 3 Swoop and Blitzwing Revealed (1612246)
Posted by durroth on October 9th, 2014 @ 12:11am CDT
Wave 2 wasn't/isn't hot topic exclusive. The only hot topic exclusives are snarl, grimlock, and bluestreak. There's a seperate retail/comic shop release that lacks those few exclusives but is otherwise the same except for mirage being nowhere to be found on the hot topic boxes and a few rarities being altered.

Whoo hoo a wheeljack! :) I love these little guys.

Like DeadCal mentioned, the ball joints STINK! I had the arm snap off my Snarl figure right out of the box. Haven't gotten a chance to glue it yet but I have a feeling that because they are vinyl, it won't look too bad compared to gluing plastic.

They're set to ship out on Friday if ordered on their website. Not sure if they'll be in stores.

I picked up Red Alert, Optimus Prime (nighttime edition), and Sideswipe (nighttime edition) from my local Gamestop this week. They look awesome! Excited for Wave 3 and hoping they will make an 8" Devastator to go along with the Constructicons.

Well technically in the Japanese version of the cartoon, Frenzy was the blue guy and Rumble was the red guy (thus resulting in Rumble barely showing up and Frenzy being the main humanoid cassette).

Honestly although the overwhelming evidence in canon points towards FIBRIR I prefer FIRRIB, simply because that was how I remember them (I only ever saw the cartoon on videotape in the early 2000s, long after G1 was a thing- and because I never saw the RID cartoon nor did I know it existed, I always thought it was weird how the cartoon Transformers had absolutely no relation to the toys- thus beginning my history of assigning "home grown" personalities to my TFs). Also, it just seems to suit them better.

Now if only someone would make a Frenzy, Rumble and Ravage for Cybertron Soundwave so I can have a Soundwave with decent, non-floppy minions that doesn't turn into a goddamn tape deck...


On topic, these look kinda cool. I'm worried about how well they'll age though- isn't vinyl very squishy and prone to drying out (and also the paint flaking)?

At The Loyal Subjects booth at Toy Fair 2015 we get to see a wide variety of current and past products including previous waves and the boxed Game Stop exclusives. On display is the latest wave 3 featuring Scrapper, Longhaul, Bonecrusher, Swoop, Sludge, Rumble (red), Frenzy (blue), Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Trailbreaker, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, Hound and Blitzwing. ScottyP informs us that the chase figures are Sunstreaker 1/24, Hound 1/48, Frenzy (the blue one for them) 1/96. Wheeljack has light up blinking ears with a demonstration video coming later. The large black figures are customs.

I wonder how they would do a Devastator in this line, since they're making the Constructicons. They could just reuse one of the larger-scale molds, although it would require tons of retooling to make it look Devastator-ish.

This wave has me hook, line and sinker. Hound and a light up wheeljack, yes please!

When these first came out, I managed to hold myself back from getting into them so I missed wave 1 but with wave 2, just like the kreos, something about these little guys just screamed "buy me!"

One of the key 1984 characters is a 1 out of 96 chase figure. Another is 1 out of 48.

I'm not buying damn master cases and selling them. That's work. I really, really don't like this business model when the chase figures aren't things like the Sunstorms and variants of other characters like they were in the past. Not that I'm uber completionist on these, quite the contrary, I only get a handful of them on impulse and the characters that I like. Were they not blind boxed/chase figure BS land residents, then maybe that'd be different. They also cost too much.

Basically, this weekend I learned that the vinyl figure collecting thing which has overlapped with Transformers on these and Hikari or whatever is just not a scene I enjoy in the slightest.

Though, I will still buy that Wheeljack because it's cool.

Is there a catch-all discussion thread for Loyal Subjects Transformers figures or is this the main one?

I caught a glimpse of these Loyal Subjects vinyl Transformers figures at the impressive Seattle Emerald City Comic Con Bluefin Distribution booth this weekend and it was love at first sight! They look great displayed alongside larger official Transformers toys. I can't wait to start collecting more of them!
