I want that Skywarp. But to pay Leader price just for 3 BattleMaster repaints? That's going to be a bitter pill to swallow.

Could always sell them on the aftermarket and get some money back. Personally I'm cool with it because I like those little guys but I've long been established as a sucker for 'gimmicks' (when they work, obviously...I've long criticized the poor quality of Cyberverse toys!).

They may make it easier to customize and "correct" certain Battle Masters whose colors are quite a bit off from their G1 selves, like Firebolt and especially the upcoming Caliburst. Even Blowpipe and Aimless aren't quite right, but you can at least switch their arms around without much fuss to get a more accurate G1 look.

But you are already doing that when you buy the siege line since getting Starscream and 3 mainline battlemasters individually comes out to the leader price point (just about).
I think what sucks is that the idea of getting a package deal no longer exists. I dont know if it ever did, but since the generations boxsets you are basically paying the same as if the figures were released individually at retail and you bought them all.

o.supreme wrote:Sorry..it took a while to convert from the other currency.
So for *roughly* $50, you are getting 2 deluxes, and one BM, which is about $46 retail, so not that bad actually.


yeah, its not bad. You didnt need to do any conversion though. All I did was look at the price of a siege leader in that listing and I saw that the price for the set was about the same thing.

D-Maximal_Primal wrote:I am still really lukewarm on that Seeker mold though.

Same here. I do not like the approach they took with this mold. the nose is far too long in contrast to the back which doesnt rise high enough and that leaves them with very tall shoulder pylons. All that can do is recreate their length during the coronation, but that doesnt work for any othe scene or any other seeker. Also dont like how the feet are not hidden in alt mode.
I will be getting this based on availability.

I honestly cant think of another time that happened in the past 8 years where Skywarp was the only exclusive of the three. And if it did, its definitely not common.

Skritz wrote:Its been a (near) consistent pattern that at least one of the Seekers end up an exclusive. Pretty sure they do it on purpose knowing people want the trio. >:oP

It's not, thats just something fans tell themselves. But if you look at the generations line's more recent releases, the seekers were mostly mainline, ex: Generations Deluxe mold, Generations legend mold, generations leader mold. All 3 seekers for all those classes available at major retailers.

Don't know how you feel about me, but I am there for you, and I understand your pain. There are a bunch of releases I will be **** out of luck for due to being based in Canada. Of course I have people that can buy them and ship them out for me, but that makes them cost an arm and a leg, money I simply can't spare for what ends up as repaints most of the time.
In any case, you got a friend in me.

I 100% agree. If you don't already have a G2 Sideswipe, this is a passable stand in. However, the G2 Masterpiece they did really nailed it: the face, the weapons, the spiked tires. I know that Masterpiece and Generations aren't on the same level, but MP Sideswipe is an old Masterpiece and not that much more complex than a modern Deluxe. The comparison just makes this new one feel lazy (still gonna buy it for Slamdance though).

I know I'm splitting a hair here, but as far as the Deluxe Classics Seekers, Skywarp was an exclusive to Target. Yes, a major retailer, but he was in the Target 2-pack along with the Ultra Magnus repaint of the Prime mold. Now I'm not sure if he was rereleased later in Generations, because I can't remember, because I found that 2-pack at retail, and never needed to look back.

But you are correct. It is something we tell ourselves. Especially for me when 2 of my 5 most favorite TF characters are Skywarp and Bluestreak. Two characters who more often than not get relegated to "always a bridesmaid, never a bride". If they are recognized at all. :lol:

My thoughts on the sets:

Skywarp may just make me go back and pick up Screamer and TC. I dont wanna, but he looks okay and I luke his minions. Fair price or not though, thats a decent chunk of chsnge.

I really like Slamdance, and I think this is a really creatice use of the mold. I dont like the random red panels on. G G2 Sideswipe but its a nice looking car. If I had to choose, I would pick that set over Skywarp.

For the longest time though, TC was too. I think what really drove the whole Skywarp is an exclusove point was everyone remembers seeing him as a Walmart Exlcusive for the G1 style Movie Seeker mold and Masterpiece. Althought technically every Masterpiece is an exclusive and most of the G1 style movie seekers were too.

Ahem.. :-B

I was very specific when referring to the generations line and recent releases. The recent generations deluxe seeker mold is the following:

Image
Transformers Generations Skywarp Gallery

So that means that for leaders, deluxes and legends, all 3 available at major retailers.

Also, as far as Bluestreak, the masterpiece line is treating him like the loveliest bride of all time. Not only is there a Takara release, a hasbro release a blue bluestreak release but we are also getting a really gorgeous show accurate bluestreak that will be available in both markets :D

yeah exactly, all MPs are exclusives, so its a moot point. And thundercracker is indeed the exclusive seeker as of late.

Here are the latest TC exclusives (one still has not reached the US):

Though thankfully, that legion got rereleased later

I think this has sealed my decision regarding the seekers. I think I'm just going to get Starscream rather go for the full trio. If I could get Skywarp alone then I might go for it but I can't justify it. Considering I'm still trying to reduce the number of repaints I buy I'll definetely be passing on Slamdance and Sideswipe. Still definetely getting Greenlight unless she's also a leader class price point, but I highly doubt it.

If I was in a different place in my life Siege would have me so excited! But right now I'm mostly happy about Greenlight. Out of everyone here she has me the most happy because I just don't have any version of her at all. She's one step towards my goal of getting all the Seasons 1 - the movie characters. Bring on Lancer.

Reason why you don't have a version of her is because this is her first toy period. Not even third parties have made her. I'm really excited to see first time figures and I'll definitely try to get her.

I know the G2 Sideswipe has its fans but i think it is a wasted slot when Deep Cover, Clampdown or even Tigertrack could've been used instead.

Especially now that they're embracing Soundblaster as a separate entity from Soundwave.

Until they start matching the panel colours I'm unlikely to pick up any of the car bots tho I think the g2 swipe and slamdance will be an eventual buy. I might have to paint the parts or leave in bot mode like with stepper. No rush tho as I think I'm only just finishing potp off after picking up a Throne Monkey and still the illusives remaining on the previous lines.

Sideswipe's a little gem. He's dismissed because of previous iterations and he's a bit simplistic, but tbh, the simple and intuitive transformation make him one of my recent faves. The weapons could be better and am tempted to buy a 3p upgrade set for him, and the white plastic seems a bit yellowish.

Re sky tread - he's a great figure.. fun too but suffers from 2 flaws when transforming his tank mode - there's not enough slack for the gun to sit properly and it can be a bit tough to close the top part properly. Otherwise a great addition, I had battle trap and this one is better because he's much less fiddly to transform as he doesn't have the 2 separate robot modes.

in short - both figures thoroughly recommended.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

But what was mentre83 talking about when claiming Soundblaster was separate from Soundwave? The only instances when that happened were those under extenuating circumstances. The most prominent version of Soundblaster is Soundwave himself in a new body.

Sure but like you say, it's a nice attempt. I really dig it myself. It helps that Flywheels is a damn nice mold.


He is the wrong way around, but the colors on the individual vehicles do match the G1 versions, which is more important. New head too, nice. Seeing "Raindance" and "Grand Slam" on the box would truly be icing on the cake.

G2 Sideswipe is a good choice IMHO, considering the previous version was a BotCon exclusive, a Customising Class figure to boot so very hard to find:

The Battle Masters, I have no idea who they could be, they could be new, they could have names plucked the Double Targetmasters or Action Master partners, who knows? I can only ID the molds used: Pteraxadon, Aimless and Firedrive for Skywarp, and Blowpipe for Sideswipe and Slamdance. I'm relieved, I can get regular Aimless now :lol:

If anyone has a spare TR Furos, PotP Prime Punch head, CW Dead End, CW Brawl or Swindle, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:
