Takara has posted new images of upcoming Earthrise toys on their Twitter page. They have Ramjet and Dirge as well as Earth Mode Ironhide and Prowl. Please note that Prowl does have panels to make his feet look less hollow but they have not been placed properly in the robot mode image. Ironhide has his sled/shield/roof on his back, showing a different way to place it in robot mode. Takara also posted images of the toys featuring characters found in the newly released Netflix show. Of those posted, only Elita 1 and Bumblebee has yet to come out in the west. We thank fellow Seibertronian aronjlove for the tip.

Feh, that roof tailcoat is nowhere near as good as this:

Now there's a nice roof tailcoat - nicely hinged and everything.

I love apeface, (just be careful with his shield) the connection of the beast head to the ape body isn't the best, but it's solid once together ;)^

Excuse me, sir? Do all of us Lycanthropic Americans look the same to you? For shame! ;)


And in return, I would like to point out that even Lycanthropes can be american centric. Zerowolf resides in the UK, and no, he is not an american werewolf in london.

Sadly I'm just a British werewolf in Teesside :lol:

Ahem

As for these latest shots, the coneheads are looking quite nice. So I'm now wondering which one came first, the idea to retool Elita from Earthrise Arcee or the decision to make her a major character in the show.

Possibly the latter, considering that Elita has been on Hasbro's radar more strongly the past few years.

Although the decision to make her an ER Arcee retool obviously came relatively early in ER Arcee's development.And is the reason the mold has the issues it does; they seem to have made it a total shellformer for the sake of making the robot body easy to swap out for a different one.
Ugh... It doesn't suit Elita very well (it would be better as Ariel) and it came at cost to Arcee's quality as a transforming to... Blagh. To the complaint box!

The coneheads look AMAZING. No regret preordering. They will look great beside my G1 Platinum set. Prowl and Ironhide don't look good at all. Not enough colors and that embarrassing misstransformation doesn't do them any favor.

Ramjet and Dirge look fantastic. If they do Ratchet out of the Earth mode Ironhide I’ll probably get it.

The Coneheads actually look pretty cool. I'm not so keen on the mold for the main Seekers, but the Coneheads were always B-listers IMO, and they do seem to wear the mold better. I might try and get them.

Is it just me or does Dirge look a little surprised with the open mouth? ER Skywarp is definitely shouting, but Dirge looks more like he's shocked or surprised.

Hasbro, you so lazy! Why go to all the effort to modify the mold to make cone heads if you’re not going to remold the guns? Whatever.

There's this thing called budget.

England is like the werewolf homeland. ;)

I can't wait to get Ramjet and Dirge, but I hope we don't have to wait too long for Earthrise Trust. I'm going to want to put Ramjet and Dirge on my display shelf ASAP, but poor old "Classics" Thrust will look out of place with them, like they brought him to "take your kid to work day" or something.

Taking another look at Earthrise Ironhide, he looks to be MASSIVE for a deluxe, thanks in part to that new removeable car roof piece (compared to the Siege version). He can't be THAT hollow inside either to bulk up his surface area. I wonder if Ironhide is coming in a set with Prowl so Hasbro didn't have to decide on a deluxe or voyager price point for him.

Remold them for what? They had the same guns as all the other Decepti-jets on the show.

Must be the angle. He looks like he's the same size as Siege Ironhide to me.

Just got my Doubledealer from Amazon and I have to say he's a good figure. Not perfect, but definitely a fun figure to mess with. Also, I was looking at the map section and realized that the inner packaging for him has the Mercenary faction symbol despite the Decepticon branding on the outside, and Autobot badges in the promo art. Makes me wonder if Snapdragon's packaging is the same, cause wasn't he called a Mercenary at NYCC?

So, unrelated note, but anyone can tell me how I can order Scorponok? He's outta stock on the Pulse, and last I checked, Amazon wasn't carrying him.

Did the toys have different weapons? I can't remember their weapons being different now that you mention it :-?

The G1 originals didn't had null rays but huge missiles or bombs.

The complaint is valid as far as G1 toy accuracy is concerned. Hoh well, Shapeway or 3P upgrade kits it will be.
