Rodimus would be fine if he was all plastic.

Always with the misleading box art... this time showing cartoon selves when the toys are not.

And despite my issues with TR Voyager Galvatron (some of which I've fixed myself) he blows this Galvy mold away with ease. The headsculpt ain't too bad but the rest is ick.

Rodimus here ain't much good either. Respect trying to make the whole alt-mode into the robot but it just didn't really work here.

I dont know about that, they both arent holding the matrix on the box art, which is reflected in how both toys cant hold it either :lol:

No flames on the sides of Rodimus Prime's trailer.

Is the matrix the same one as MP-10? If so, I'd throw a tenner at this when it inevitably lingers on discount. My cat ran off with the one I had and we've moved house now. I need to get a new one before Thunderwing or whatever finds the other one. If TRU weren't so full of fantasy and magical wonder, that's all they'd be charging for this shambles anyway. Thank you, I'm calmer now, I may be back next week.

>:oP

Plus, you'd get a free...

I really don't see all the Platinum sets that they're making selling well. The one based off the movie poster and Unicron are the only ones that I think will sell. They really should have used some of these on Platinum Beast Wars sets.

Supposedly, Titanium Rodimus Prime is one of the better ones when it comes to the joints, as it doesn't suffer the same looseness as his brethren despite the die cast weighing him down.

... I don't entirely understand why they went with a metallic red for the die cast and then just regular red plastic. It stands out.

So does that mean there will be a new thread in 2017 if this is called 2016 Generations Platinum sets?

:MAXIMAL:

That would have made more sense, I'd buy some of the Platinum sets if the were Beast Wars. But John Warden loves his G1 and there's a rumor he doesn't care much at all for other incarnations of Transformers, specifically Beast Wars. So it probably would have flown very well with him at the helm. We all know what happened with the Year of the Monkey set.

I've heard that he and his team do like Armada, though.

That'd explain CW Armada Megatron

The only Platinum project we know John Warden worked on is Liokaiser. From the interviews it seems the platinum line is handled by a totally seperate team.

And the Chinese New Year ones are likely handled by Hasbro Asia.

Well I guess I shouldn't say stuff I'm not sure about. :lol:
I figured he'd have some control over the Platinum sets since they are Generations. But yeah I guess the Year of the ____ would be an entirely different team.

BTW I wasn't hating on Warden, TR looks amazing.

Evening Seibertronians, tonight we have a pictorial review of Transformers Generations 2016 Platinum Edition: Armada of Cyclonus! This '86 Movie inspired 3-pack includes the Unicron spawned Cyclonus, Scourge, and Decepticon Sweep (sporting a brand new head!). They all hail from the Classics/Universe/Generations era, and have some new competition with Combiner Wars and Titans Return. Has the throne been usurped? Let's scroll and have a look.

Image

Namesake of the set, Cyclonus. Great as always, this time around he is sporting two hands capable of holding weapons (as opposed to the molded close fisted previous versions) and has a gun stolen from Generations Kup. While he doesn't have quite as nice a jet silhouette as the CW Voyager, I still feel he has the better robot mode.

Image

Image

Image

Sweep leader Scourge is the only one completely unchanged (mold wise) in this set. This grudge match is a toss up. On one hand I prefer the wings on this version, but love the classic space boat alt mode of the Titans release.

Image

Image

Image

Image

And finally, Decepticon Sweep. Take Scourge to the barber shop for a hot shave, and what do you get? This fella. This new head sculpt is fresh take on what the Sweep clone army should look like and is a great addition to anyone's Unicron crew.

So what do these figures mean for your collection? Is it out with the old and in with the new, or long live Classics? Or can you still not let go of G1 even (haha wink wink). Let us know, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!
