Oh, cool stuff! Wish they'd hit my BBTS POL.

For those worried about Motormaster not fitting as a "stunt" vehicle, here is another way of looking at them.

It's a team made up of characters with mental flaws so heavy their personal development is permanently "stunted".

See what I did there..... :DANCE:

It really does look nice. For a new line, they really have made some really nice looking stuff. I think that's what some people seem to be forgetting; it's a new line, not MP. Who cares if Alpha Bravo is in or out, in my collection, it won't be the end all, be all Superion anyway. I'll wait for an MP, and get this as a place holder in the mean time, which could be many years. What irks me, however, is the thought that parts of this line could be rebranded into the MP line, which would be a seriously bad move. For people willing to pay upwards of $80 for a single car, then it'd better be perfect, which is what that line hits 95% of the time. To include the new Devastator, with his glaring flaws and obvious compromises made due to price point would bring the entire line down. If an MP Devastator is coming, I'd expect each constructicon to be in the $80-90 range, and also look like it. The CW line is great for a mainstream line, but it is not high end collector grade material, and I'm sure it's not intended to be.

I agree that MP is its own thing and any re-branding as you describe would definitely bring the line down. I am curious as to why the CW Megatron and Devastator are so close in size to their MP counterparts. If they are trying to kill two birds then does that mean we will never get those figures.

I don't think they'll never happen but I do think Devastator is a ways off. And as far as Megatron goes, a line that prides itself on being incredibly g1 accurate will not have a tank Megs. Since there's been no official announcement of MP-25, maybe he's next, who knows? Patience pays off with this line.

Nah, you just posted it in a different thread :)


See, I make a mistake and BAM! Noticed! Story of my life. I couldn't find the news post I originally used on the front page and concluded this was the thread :oops: (Thank you) Ah well, since I'm here...

I like Alpha Bravo.
There. I said it.

Honestly, I do hope Slingshot and Wildrider get here eventually. I'd rather we get new additions to teams rather than replacements. As someone who loved his Stunticons as a kid, I'd be miffed if the original G1 teams were NEVER going to happen. On the flip side, I won't complain if it's just a waiting game. Ironically, Wildrider was the elusive chap keeping me from finishing Menasor back then. Until mom, like a boss, special ordered him at the counter :KREMZEEK:

And with a trailer, he's the hypothetical big rig that drives the others from show to show.

As far as MP Megs goes we do have to consider that Hasbro MAY purposely not slip this one into distribution.

Any one of us old timers had stories (urban legends most of the time) of the kid stopped for having a gun that turned out to be Megs, as all of us are aware of the need for the "orange barrel safety plug" attached to pieces to designate the piece was not, in fact, a working firearm.

Hasbro likely has weighed the pros/cons on this one, and decided that attempting to release him here will be too much trouble, should there be any negative news stories that their product gets attached to. Regardless even if this is what is happening, you know they will dance around the issue, because if a Hasbro rep was asked at a convention or show, and said something to the effect of-

-would at best bring upon then the wrath of certain members of our fandom, and at worse possibly find themselves being targeted by organizations like the NRA turning their reluctance to sell something gun-related into some kind of right-wing conspiracy to keep kids from embracing gun culture. It's silly, but sadly we live in a society where that is a plausible situation.

After all there was a reason that Classics Megs was "Nerfed" so to speak.

I don't get why people say Alpha Bravo isn't as fast as the others. Have they looked at his vehicle mode? He's a giant bullet with rotors and missiles mounted on him! He's the most aerodyamic out of the entire Aerialbots, what with their awkwardly visible robot kibble and such.

I would never expect Hasbro to release a gun Megs, but that in no way precludes TT from doing an updated one. Hasbro is understandably stand-offish at the thought if it, but who relies on Hasbro for MP releases anyway? If you did so, you'd miss most of the line.

Nope doesn't work. What does work is imagining him as a loner, out and about scouting/exploring and getting into his own adventures. If he's ever in a spot that calls for it, he has the ability to send a signal overriding Silverbolt's brain and, via him, the three nearest jets, making them drop whatever they're doing and get to his location. He'd probably be a bit drained after this but could soon merge with the others, Superion sorts out the trouble, and AB goes up Iron Mountain or whatever to recharge his 'Superion-Summoner'. Yeah.

Probably just the simple thought that real life jets are faster than helicopters. Then again, by that logic Dragstrip is too fast to be a Stunticon, being a formula 1 car.

Top speed of an Aerospatiale Dauphin (Alpha Bravo): 190 mph
Top speed of an F-15 (Air Raid): Mach 2.7
That's why.

Though being cybertonian may allow him to break that limit somewhat

Maybe somewhat, but it's like trying to say that a rowboat, however sleek it looks, could possibly keep up with a speedboat. It just can't.

This wave appears to be currently hitting parts of Asia, and is estimated to arrive on our shores sometime in March. Breakdown can transform from robot, to car, to arm, and to a leg for Combiner Wars Motormaster to create Menasor. That's some resume! Check out the bio, and keep scrolling for the pics!

Breakdown is always worried he is being watched. The Decepticons take full advantage of his need to remain unseen, and mobilize him as a scout. Paranoia comes in handy when you're trying to avoid detection.

I love Guido Guidi's Seeker designs. That Starscream Legend figure with Waspinator is the BOSS. Always wanted an upgrade version of him/the mold.That and the Optimus Prime version.

But I'm kind of (surprise) agreeing with a point of view with Rated X on some aspect of scaling. I maybe in the minority but I wish Hasbro will downscale him. The retool of the Jetfire mold (TT/Hasbro invested oodles in it most probably) is pragmmatic like that of Springer. But making them on the same scale as Jetfire is not too animation (comic book IDW I'm not sure as I've not been reading IDW except for the comics that come packed in the figures) accurate.

In Japan, during Galaxyforce, Starcream was released without electronics at a smaller size. In the USA, he was that big@ss size with a crown. Chances are TT releasing a smaller Seeker type is indeed small....just my 2 cents.

His bio on the Transformers Battle Tactics website indicates he is much slower than the other Aerialbots. At this point, that bio is pretty much the only info we have about him.

It's interesting that they meant for Viper to be like a Cobra Viper when the head is done up like Wild Weasel. They could've done a chrome/silver face plate like the trooper to better go that route. If it's meant to be the gun of Galvatronus then I hope whatever limbs are used have tight hips since none of the released limbs thus far can hold Powerglide up, on its own or combined with Silverbolts rifle.

Rook strikes me as the kind of figure people who like to take pictures will have fun with.
