I never owned that Megatron and always wanted to. He looks really cool but I'm pretty set with Datk of the Moon Megs. Don't care how the last knight one looks I'll pick it up too

Shock wave sure is tempting but that's because I buy all shockwaves. My shrine needs more offerings!

Megatron looks better (don't know what they were thinking with the green), but I like original Shockwave more.

It's assumed he had that color because he was under the ocean for a few years. I guarantee it came down to the designers getting the movie design, being told what his resurrection entailed and doing that deco. Personally I don't think it looks bad. Looks so alien I'm feeling it that's why I wanted it.

And that's Takara's Evasion Prime isn't it? Cos Hasbro's looked like an inferior KO in comparison. I like my Hasbro one after sprucing it up but yeah both of those shown there look better than Hasbro's version.


It's Takara's as you can tell by the silver hands and feet rather than the blue on the (perfectly fine, not at all KO looking, wtf?) Hasbro.

The mold's great but the lack of colours on the Hasbro compared to the Takara version really does make it look worse in my opinion. Especially on details like the 'fake' smokestacks in robot mode being bizarrely red on Hasbro's. Hasbro's Evasion Prime was a figure I sorta kinda liked when I bought it but really fell in love with it a month or so later once I'd added paint to it for accuracy and to break up some of the overdone blue and red (especially needed on the arms) and add some Reprolabels for the flames.

I never bought Evasion Prime of any kind - due to the Hasbro distribution issues with them being TRU exclusives - I just never bothered.

I think I'd prefer buying the KO and painting it up though. If I ever summon up the interest to buy one in the 1st place.

I think I should buy one perhaps one of the reasons I didn't was because I was spoiled for choice - my preferred one would have been the Autobot "Platinum" Boxed set one I guess.

I really don't have an excuse - I guess after I got the Leaderclass I didn't really feel the need - especially as I will eventually get the KBB version anyway.

I do like that Silver Megatron though. I guess i'm a little concerned with all the talk of them breaking too. I know myself well enough to know that the only reason i'd be buying it was because it's Optimus.

It's strange though to look at what interests me and what I like and what I don't like and I think it comes down to playability and function.

For example I actually like One-Step Changers as the quick Transformation is a benefit in an of itself to me. I find I don't like overly complex Transformations as they take to long and bleed out all the fun - but I'm prepared to put that to one side to buy a toy just for the robot mode in some cases.

I think the Movie toys in AOE fall into some dead zone with my tastes they are to complex to be fun to play with and two simple & under decorated to be worth buying for the robot mode alone.

It's the Battle Blade Bumblebee problem - he's a fabulous robot but an atrocious 'Transformer' as he's just to much of pain to transform with everything getting in each others way all the time.

That mechtech Bee is OK a bit flimsy but he's not that hard to transform (He actually feels a bit like RTS Jazz to me in some ways) but he's so plain looking and I don't think he's a huge amount of well "fun".

Oh well people have their tastes I guess and when it comes to Movie toys - I'm blow a bit hot and cold on them.

Megatron looks neato in that silver. Shockwave looks cool but I prefer the original deco. Optimus looks good for sure, but still suffers from that horrible grey plastic. Bumblebee, meanwhile, is just the MechTech figure with the glorious chunky blaster replaced by a piddly little machine gun.

I agree with every word. hence why the only one I bothered getting is Megatron.

Wonderfest 2017 - Movie The Best Ironhide, Ratchet, Strafe, Soundwave, Starscream and More

Postby william-james88 » Sun Feb 19, 2017 1:17 pm

Wonderfest 2017 also had all the Movie the Best toys, that are yet to be released, on display. We see their boxes and final decos. This is our best look yet at Ironhide, Ratchet, Strafe, Soundwave, Starscream and Grimlock. We also see MB11 Leader Optimus Prime, whose grey plastic seems to have more of a matte look rather than a silver finish. We also get a nice shot of Bumblebee riding Strafe and Optimus riding Grimlock. These are coming out at the end of this month with Optimus coming out in March.
Enjoy!

Hasbro has nothing to do with these. This is all Takara. And Yes of course they are repaints. Its a line celebrating 10 years of the first Movie. Re-releasing the "best" molds of the characters from the movies in better paint jobs.

Beyond that, why were you expecting anything other than repaints in a line that was said to be re-releasing old figures.

If you are going to complain abut something, the least you could do is get the facts straight, and complain about something that was not already completely obvious, known, and publicized.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyways, I am a bit disapointed in that soundwave, the heavy black everywhere that isnt silver drowns out the detail. Also, he doesnt come with his cool accessory from the human alliance line and thats a shame.

I love how shiny his silver is and I could easily drybrush some extra silver over the black to bring out the details more. The missing HA stuff is a bit of a let down but it's still a gorgeous figure.

Back on topic. Leader Prime is looking good. Never got that mold back in DotM or its subsequent retools.

The retools, and all the accessories just make this mold all the better.

I'm so glad I pre-ordered him. Seems the $66 pre-order is sold out.
