Hot off the PulseCon announcements last week we've got a new batch of stock photos direct from Takara Tomy's next round of pre-orders. While there's no real revelations here we do get a better idea of Hot Shot's knee articulation and Leo Prime's colors are a little darker under the less harsh studio lights. And we get a good look at Menasor in all his completed glory! Take a look at the phots and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub forums!

Looks like Hot Shot's knee articulation is something you'll have to get a feel for in real life, it looks both very compromised and restricted yet it somehow also looks like it can reach a competent range. To me, at least.

Ever since they revealed the new figures coming in the future for the Legacy line, I am very excited and happy to see that Armada is now getting the recognition it deserves. Transmetal 2 Megatron and BW 2nd Leo Prime are a very nice addition to the BW line-up, but the one thing that caught my attention was the introduction of Tarn. Can't wait to own these figures in the future. :D

Hotshot looks almost like a 1-step changer. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Tarn :CON:, looks magnificent, just super dope. Nothing I would change I dont think. Although I am hoping his mask comes off and a face is underneath. Pre-ordered and I cant believe he didnt sell out yet.

Breakdown, is pretty great in robot mode, but I'm a bit disappointed in his vehicle mode. Guess they saved the repaint until last. Still, he doesnt look bad and at least has the spoiler. Pre-ordered and I cant wait to finally complete a great looking Menasor.

Needlenose, I am glad he is a deluxe, as for some reason him being same size as the Seekers doesnt seem right, dont know why. As a bunch already said; his targetmasters are a bit of a let-down. Pre-ordered.

A Hero is Born set, is very sweet looking. About time we had a good looking Alpha Trion and Vector Sigma will be icing on the cake. Orion Pax looks cool too but not the main draw for me. Pre-ordered.

Lio Convoy is awesome looking, but I cant fit him in my collection. Already have the TFCC one and fairly satisfied with it. Hot Shot looks good too and glad Armada fans get new stuff. These new Junkions almost got me, but Ima wait to see more. Its a cool system looks like. Core Dinobots, meh, but interested to see the retool/repaints.

Only for the Earthspark line. They have the toys at the show and they can now be preordered online. You also have random super 7 statues.

Tarn is the coolest figure since a long time. I've stopped collecting TFs but I think I'll buy it asap.

I still ask myself how could They spoil Menasor with those "broken" cars on the arms and, most of all, with Breakdown and Wildrider on the back of the legs (ad made from two identical molds, except for the legs, so Breakdown's alt mode has a Ferrari front with a Lamborghini rear): the choiche of linking BD and WR in that position is unexplanable. It could have benn a great figure, otherwise.

To me the arms look less broken now that they don't have two (four?) elbows made from two skinny rods holding the ends together. Never really liked the CW elbow solution.

To me it looked like the combiners had gorilla arms that way. So I always kept mine collapsed. Yeah, it took away elbow articulation, but it looks better on display and it's more stable. But I guess it depends on how much one likes to pose the combiners differently.

Hotshot's legs look terrible. He's a "from the waist and up" bot. Interested to see the review on it.

The rest of him looks terrible as well. The upper torso has little actual detailing, most of it looks fairly flat except for the silver pieces. And that car mode? :shock: :lol: Definitely inferior to both the original and Universe releases. Which is surprising, considering Starscream turned out very well. Hopefully Armada Prime lands on that side of the fence.

I always have the legs extended if the arms are. Made them biggerand more proportionate. It's not that noticable on CW menasor using the folded car front vehicles as legs. They always have deluxes stood in front of them for the most part but stability is greatly reduced (worse for bruticus due to the way swindle/brawn form the legs). some kind of 3d printed plug in piece should help with that though.

I picked up Jaxius last night, on sale at Targ├ęt for $23 bucks. Can't beat and really he's a lovely figure, made with a lot of love for the source material. Much like ER Prime, the hinged hands add a lot of personality to him, as does the super comic accurate 90's headsculpt.

Transformation is, overall, pretty great! Tolerances are good and everything locks together in both modes well, all his parts move around quite a bit more than you'd think going from robot mode, speaking of in that mode he does cut a very clean, intergrated figure. Tall too. The jet mode is also solid, the cockpit area being hollow on the bottom is a little baffling given just how considered the rest is. I ported the smaller transparent gun on to the bottom and that covered it up well enough, but it's really not a big deal nor is the arms being on the bottom of the hull.

Overall, if you have the same semi wacky taste as me, he's worth a check

I was really looking forward to a cool Needlenose Figure.
I so hoped that he was going to fill a slot in my Decepticon Army and in my heart that has been empty for so long.

But then this atrocious mishap hits our collective doorstep.
WTF?!
I truly thought that we had grown beyond this crap!
I thought Transformers design was advanced and trying not to be this 2 bit joke that we all fell for 20 years ago!

But here it is again!
A folded up pile of kibble robot hiding under a jet.
Really?
REALLY!?

no thanks.

I'm looking forward to it. [-( There's only so much a Deluxe can do to hide bot kibble and at least there's a transformation beyond a bot tucking in his arms and legs. His bot mode is perfection (ignoring the gaps because it's 2022 and they aren't really worth pointing out anymore).

I might be a little late to the party on this one. But considering the original figure (which still looks like one of the better G1 figures) was anyone else a little disappointed the new "Leader Class" figure is a redeco and minor retool of Astrotrain?

Thanks! I did wonder why there was no mention of it here? Since I went back a couple pages.
