Definitely not looking like a master of Metallikato there, 'Bludgeon'. :P

I'm sure you know this but this is based on his G1 inner body and the skull design is his pretender shell.

I didnt sign up this year as Impactor is the only one I really wanted. Needlenose would have been great with a new head and on the Air Raid body. That one looks almost matching his current IDW comic look perfect. But without that its not enough. He has such a unique looking head/face that he needed a new mould.

What does his shell have to do with him being skilled at Metallikato? He would still be the same character and fight as best as he could. The pose here makes him look more like a brawler.

Besides, I'm not wearing my gi but I still know karate. :P

I don't know every part of his fiction, but wasn't his shell persona more of a samurai, and his inner bot persona more of a wannabe master of dark magic, or just a regular soldier type?

Really not liking the new artwork of Impactor. It shows the right hand as a complete stump with the claw attached. I would've like to have seen the fist as well, like the left arm.

You do realize he lost that hand, or never had it in the first place, right?

The toy still has an obvious hand. And the Character can have a right hand.

Yes the figure still has a hand, but I thought that they left it unpainted to emulate that the figure has no right hand Image

The art is just to express the character it represents in a way that they just could not in toy form.

Since this figure will have both hands, I think it would be cool to have him painted up like he was in his miner days. I'd enjoy a pre-wreckers, pre-war impactor. I know he still didn't have right hand but we saw him at the bar with a stump & I think this mold could emulate that pretty good with the closed fists/blaster tips.

Art always takes liberties with the figures. The original Rattrap figure's card art had his hand on fire. Compared to that, this isn't really a thing.

I didn't notice Impactor's lack of a hand! Kinda weird, but hey, at least it looks mostly like the toy.

So happy to see that the Micron paint apps made it after all. I do wish they had the little transparent gem bits though. My only complaint.
:BOT:


Yah I'm right here with you ... I own every version of the Wreck-Gar mold, Hasbro, Takara versions, repaints, remolds, BotCon versions, etc. I've never had a single one break. Only one that has an issue is the United 3 pack Scrapheap figure (which Tarantulas is a repaint of) has some cracked plastic around the plastic peg that is on his right shoulder where the arm attaches. It came from the factory that way. No other version of this mold has an issue in my collection.

After wielding his Microns in claw mode for a day or two, my Tarantulas already has stress marks on the insides of both of his hands. He is never holding anything ever again.

Where do the stress marks happen on their hands?

Boiling water will get rid of your stress marks.

I had the same thing with rattrap, can't hold anything, the hands were miss-measured, it sucks :(

Looking at the figure's hands, on the outside of each hand are some indentations sculpted to denote all the joints of each finger. On each hand is an indentation that is formed by all four fingers lining up together before veering off in different directions. I've circled this indentation below in red. On the underside of this indentation, within the inside of each hand, is where the stress marks appear, which is also pointed out in red below.

I'm only talking about the Wreck Gar molds. Anything else I can't say one way or another.
