Makes sense, they've been using that image of Galvatronus in the bottom corner from the start.

Limbs don't appear to be important. Both arms are the same vague jet and the legs both appear to be Dragstrip.

Don't blame the fans, it's not like the votes actually count.

To be fair, there aren't that many repaints. Most stuff's been remolded as well as repainted. And it was clear this was going to be a recolor from the start.

If this messes up the comics, I'll be very upset.

Yay, more whining, exactly what this forum needs.

Repaints have been a big part of Transformers since Day One. If you don't like them, find a new hobby.

The comics are only written to promote the toys. They can re-write the fiction to accomodate the toys, just as they have since the first TF comics were written to promote a new line of toys consisting of a bunch of unrelated toys from different lines.

I don't get these kinds of complaints. Over in the Protectobot thread, people come up with ideas for who Hot Spot could be redecoed into, and which limbs could be redecoed into which characters said Hot Spot redecos could combine with, and people are loving those ideas.

Yet, in this thread, an actual official combiner redeco is forthcoming, and the exact opposite reaction is given?

This fandom, I swear. >:oP

I hope that was sincere...if it was, I agree.

If not...

The more repaints = the more combinations.

The more combinations = the more play value for kids.

More play value for kids = the more they want it = more sales.

For customizers it doesn't matter, they'll just paint or mod parts.

You think children are buying these? At $17 a limb?

Last I checked children do not have jobs and parents generally do not shell out $125 a pop for combiners. Especially four in six months.

:lol: So, Hasbro gave fans a fan built combiner. That could have been created without Hasbro's help? :???: :lol:

Speculating all Hasbro is going to do is put everything in a gift set. Maybe give all of the toys a gloss shiny finish.

Thinking, Hasbro is probably going to recolor a few CW Aerialbots as Decepticon seekers. Then use a few Stunticons in different characters colors.

:-? Can only assume the Galvatronus Nemesis characters is the one that fights the CW Optimus and his mixed CW limbs.

Also don't think the votes count.

Think Hasbro is well aware of some fans that will try their hardest to vote over One Thousand times in these Voting polls. Hasbro will not allow a few fans who vote Thousands of times to override fans who votes Once with these polls.

In the end, don't think any of these fan submitted votes get counted or acknowledged. Think Hasbro picks the winner well in advance.

To be fair, for the money they are charging us for this stuff Hasbro has no real reason why they cannot provide a new mold for each figure other than the fact that they want to maximize their profits for their shareholders. It is the "old" saying, run your business by creating a product for the least amount of money and charge the most you can. The problem is that you eventually cross the line with quality. And the way some of this stuff is made anymore is kinda pathetic. I really like the detail they can get with laser cut molds, but everything else has gone to hell. I mean, you have unpainted parts on some of these figures, which is inexcusable for $16 a pop. A lot of the molds in G1 were original, or at least reduxed from Micromaster stuff, so really there is no reason why they do this other than to get at much money out of you as possible while spending the least amount to do so. The movie money created a monster with Hasbro, and now their investors expect the same dividends every single year. And this is why we get the price increases we get, especially in non-movie years.

They get money by you loading that app on your phone by selling your data. Whether they actually count these votes is speculation, but it would not surprise me if it just a gimmick. In reality, picking one from three or four preset attributes is not really a good voting process. In my OP, they should have skipped this nonsense and just give us Bruticus or one of the season three G1 combiners, like Computron.

Both will happen, I'm sure. Personally, I will not rest untill I get my Seacons. In the meantime, let's just enjoy whatever is comning our way. I'm curious how Galvatronus Nemesis Aurora Borealis Maximus Trolleybus is going to turn out.

Generally, parents with jobs have much more important things to spend their money on than toys for their children. And even when they do give them an allowance or by them something once a month or so when they go to TRU or a big box they do not want to commit 6-9 months worth of allowance for one toy with five parts they have to find at random.

I have four children and I take them to TRU once a month. I let them get something up to $15-20. None of my children have ever chosen a deluxe Generations Transformer, let alone something like this where they have to commit every single allowance to getting al five of a combiner. As a matter of fact only one of my sons ever picks Transformers, and that is usually a one step. Furthermore, if given a choice, would a 10 year old boy choose one combiner limb or two TMNT figures? One combiner limb or two Mario figures? One combiner limb or two Minecraft figures? One combiner limb, or four Lego Mixels? One combiner limb or five Disney Cars Diecasts? Hell, one combiner limb or one deluxe RID figure that is actually in a cartoon they watch?

So your kids have varied interests. That's cool. When I was a kid my interests were very linear. It was all about Transformers, and other toys were there but few and far between. I was into TMNT really hard, but that took place pretty much when TF's were on hiatus anyways.

And random was how it went. I had two complete Scramble City combiners, but neither was a complete team. It was a total mix of sub-teams and factions and I didn't care at all. That's what was one of the funnest things about the concept, and I bet there's kids out there who will have the same fun.
