Bot and ape modes are magnificent, but that jet mode. Dafok dey did? #-o
A big square with wings and a nosecone. Like those TR "cassettes".

This sucker will buy Siege Apeface anyway, but this make the G1 original even more precious. Plus my desire for a MP Apeface is stronger than before.

BTW, the ape feet at the back, I tilt them back one click for them to act as proper extra tailfins.

Siege Apeface

Postby Cyberpath » Sun Sep 08, 2019 2:22 pm

Nice.

The jet deco could use some tweaking, the cockpit area, but otherwise they got everything else mostly right, it seems.

Re-posting my Apeface chart --

There's a thread here titled "The TF you want but you know HasTak will NEVER make" and I must say that it doesn't apply to me. They're making everything that I've wanted, it's almost as though they're reading and working off my wishlist, maybe even in the order of the requests. I'm sure Snapdragon and the remaining Autobot Targetmasters will follow.

I loved looking at the battle scenes on the back of the packages.

G1 have the jet mode.
Siege have the bot mode.
And both have an acceptable ape mode.

Apeface is looking great. Pre-ordered him off Amazon because there's no way I'm risking scalpers and never seeing him in stores

I had to do a double take on this one:

https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Roa ... EZP747WYN2

Usually Amazon themselves don't get pictures (obviously the description says Road Patrol). Unfortunately THIS being a Target exclusive, its probably not a mater of *Hey you shipped me the wrong thing*, best case scenario, you would probably just get your $10 refunded, not really a chance of getting this actual item for $10...

Anyone have got any good fan-modes for Reflector? I've seen people achieve Perceptor & Soundwave like alt-modes, and a big robot made of maybe six Reflector bodies.

But extra points for something like this --

BTW transformed him into his "individual" mode today for the first time. Not exactly sure what it's supposed to be (a space ship?) but was impressed with all the tabs.

Dont think that would be possible even with all the milliputty in the world. Though you can give ultra magnus soundwaves weapons on his shoulders, transforming him into Ultrasound...he can then determine if a protoform is going to be autobot or decepticon.

Oh, cool. It's nice to see how the head works. Though, don't know if it's just how Takara has everything lit for promo shots, but Apeface's white plastic just looks iffy to me

Shame about jet mode, and the battledamge looks like bot modes been rolling around in glitter. Definitely picking him up though and looking forward to a snap dragon to go with him.

So I got the SDCC Reflector set the other day, and I gotta say, I love it. Play value and 'fun' are not things I really care about in my figures anymore. My life is far busier than it used to be, and my figures are pretty much just display piece these days.

That said, this set is fun, a lot of fun. The different colors really set it apart from what I see as the blandness and just plain boring nature of the Siege line.

I love it, couldn't recommend it more.

I wasnt saying it as a bad thing, part of me likes it, part of me doesn't and then there is the part of me that would totally be rolling around in glitter when ever I get the chance to do so. Thats why I dont have pritt stick in the house.

For me too. Look more like candle wax than anything else. It's weird. Let's hope the in-hand pictures are better.

I still can't get over that garbage "jet" mode, but the PERFECT robot mode and that rocking ape mode more than compensate for that flaw.

Takara's stock photos of Jetfire had this effect too. Looked a lot darker than the figure actually is.

I've been noticing this a lot since brand unification, Takara's stock photos of general releases seem to be darker and not always good representations of the final product. Generally Takara does better stock photos in terms of showing off the figure, but Hasbro seems to do better at balancing the lighting to make it look closer to the final product

I think it all started when they showed Megatron holding his Fusion Cannon.

I want apeface even more now. That monkey face without mouth can be used as an original character face, in case anyone wants to do a custom OC with TR molds as a base.
A bit annoyed with the robot arm clearly hanging on the monkey leg, but i guess it is G1 accurate, so that is where everyone wants it to be. Eh, oh well.

New Stock Images Showing Final Deco for Siege Apeface, Crosswise and More

Postby william-james88 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:16 pm

Takara has new images for the upcoming Transformers War for Cybertron Siege voyager Apeface, deluxe Crosshairs and Micromasters combiner Direct Hit and Power Punch. These give us our best look at the finished deco and what that might look like in unfavourable lighting conditions, as you will see. While Apeface's white may look too off white, it might just be that it is pearlescent. We also see what the battle damage will look like on his legs, along with a good look at this jet mode. As with all triple changers, one mode will always get the short straw and as with his G1 toy and any Braodside toy, it is the jet mode. We do get to see exactly what the Titan Master turns into. Crosswise is a redeco of Ironhide with a new head and sports some pretty cool tampographs that give callbacks to the original toy.

These are due out for the 2019 holiday season at all retailers that carry
