Is it still a re-mold if every part is new and only the transformation is the same?

Nope.

...oh wait, that was probably rhetorical...

Its not rhetorical. Just a legit question. Because whatever the answer people give (and I think both yes and no are legit) would be the same answer to the fabled question "Is Chromedome a retool of Dead End". I still think there is a different between these examples and toys that share similar transformations since these are legitimate attempts at replicating a transformation, and they do copy a previous engineering design. So while it isnt a retool per say, I still think its less original in a way. But thats just me.

I say NO. Reusing a particular transformation scheme has been done plenty of time, especially with simpler toys. Such figures are not considered retools, otherwise almost every Micromaster would be related to one another. :lol:

Retools are purely physical in nature, as they involve changing or switching out already existing parts. Reusing transformations is part of the design phase on paper, no existing parts involved. That's the main difference.

The AoE One-Steps had less variety in transformations, having only 4 to 5 schemes. Yet we didn't consider them retools...
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

I really like that he has working pincers, which is something I would have loves Clampdown to have. And plus he has knee articulation.

It looks pretty pose-able, how are the joints on it? I can get behind the gimmick and size and design - if it's pose-able, I might look into getting one :-?

It's fairly poseable for what it is. The only issue I have is that you can't hide the "claw" deployer feature on it. If you could fold it back out of the way or something, it'd be a much better toy. Either way, it seems much better than the prior 3 deployers and the gimmick seems much less obtrusive than it does on Drift and Fracture.

Speaking of whom, I didn't do comparison shots with the other Hasbro Deployers because I ended up doing it with the the Takara Micronshooters since I hadn't posted Takara's Fracture and Drift galleries yet. I simply added group shots of all 4 of those together and will hopefully have all 10 of those galleries posted in the near future. Normally I save the big group shots for the Hasbro galleries and try to stick to "release date" mates or Hasbro comparisons with the Takara products, which is not necessarily a set rule, just something I try to stick to keep everyone flowing timewise.

Seems like a missed opportunity to have a comparison with Kiss Players Zangetsu. The moulds seem so similar. I kinda want it on that basis alone.

I forgot about those guys. Maybe I'll bust them out for an upcoming Beast Wars Tuesdays set since I haven't done the Beast Wars Eggs yet either.

Goodness, the deco on Hasbro's is enough to make him look like a completely different character.

This is like Beast Machines levels of show/toy deviation.

New Galleries: Transformers Adventure Micronshooter TAV24 Fracture and TAV27 Drift Sets

Postby Va'al » Mon Oct 03, 2016 11:43 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We have another update to the Seibertron.com toy galleries, focusing on the Takara Tomy Transformers Adventure line, and more specifically the Micron Shooter subline, with its Decepticon Fracture and Autobot Drift figures!

TAV24 Fracture is the Japanese counterpart to the Robots in Disguise Deployer figure from Hasbro - which you can see here - and alongside a tweaked colour palette (with the lighter lilac purple so very prominent) we also get two Micron figures, scorpion-like Sandsting and bullet-kid Airazor. On the other hand, TAV27 Drift - as opposed to the Hasbro Drift set seen here - comes with his regulars Slipstream and Jetstorm. All Microns include the clear plastic armour pieces too, and you can check out the whole set of images below, by clicking on any of the included images!
