If any of you are are thirsty for more Cogman, Kevin Liu has posted a video review. While it is in Chinese, he does add English subtitles so you can follow along and see him in all his aspects.

We also have additional images from Toy-People of the deluxes from Transformers: The Last Knight that have yet to be released: Crosshairs and Bumblebee. Dragonstorm can be found there too. There is also a great group shot of the Autobot team from Transformers the Last Knight. Say what you want about this toy line but those sure are some pretty bots.

Seeing a thin Megatron with no arm cannon is just really weird.

So I picked up this guy yesterday:

Image

Very very mixed feelings with this one. The new torso bot is great! Skulk is genuinely really fun to hold and play around with. He can pose really well (sort of weird, but still really well) and the molding and detail is fantastic! If you just had him, the combined mode would hold all kinds of promises!

But then come the limbs. I am not joking when I say these limbs (I already own Abominus, so I have experience with them) are the worst quality figures I own. The molds have to be dead for the limbs to be this awful.

Thrash (left arm): his head and front legs pop off when you open his chest and his armor pieces on his legs are so loose they slide by themselves and will not hold in place.

Rupture (right arm): his ball joints are pathetic. his wings fall off just standing in place. and his robot head joint is so stiff I am afraid to transform him into robot mode.

Gorge (left leg): his ball joints are so loose his beast and robot modes are useless. He will not stand. And the pegs won't work for combined mode, so he just flops around unless he is actually bearing weight equally on his head and feet.

Glug (right leg): worst of the lot. his beast mode head will not tab together, he is almost completely useless as a leg (the only reason he is working is because I have him very mistransformed and the combining system is much more secure on this one, more on that in a moment) and his ball joints are awful too.

The combining system is pretty good though for the legs. they now possess some clips on Skulks arms that peg in and hold the legs, which allows for the mistransformations that make the legs work better.

But still, I have to say avoid this figure. Skulk is great! But that is it. The limbs are of pitiful and painfully bad quality. Not worth the full price.

PS: Quintessa is cool, but she is so tiny!

I'm not surprised at all. Aside from the fact that Hasbro's quality control team seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth, most of the limb molds have all been flogged to death over the past few years.

Blight (Gorge) and Twinstrike (Thrash) have gotten off fairly light, only being used to make GO! Burara and Garara respectively,before this, however, Rippersnapper (Glug) was also used to make Predacons Rising Cindersaur, Go! Jurara, AOE Grimlock, TF 2014 Grimlock and TLK Grimlock and Windrazor (Rupture) was also used to make Prime Divebomb, Go! Barara, and TF 2014 Strafe.

All in all, it's a miracle that most of them came out even semi- functional.

I got rid of Abobinus because I simply had no fun with that set. And after viewing a few video and article reviews of Infernocus I'll have to skip entirely. Really, ALL the components should have been new molds... The torso voyager size, the limbs deluxe size, Combiner Wars compatible, in a nice 150$CAN box set.

But eh, wishful thinking.

Going back to your post Will about the comparisons between TLK Voyager and TLK Leader Megatron to just add some of my thoughts: I've had TLK Voyager Megatron for about a week or week and a half and honestly I really like the figure. I've picked it up a few times just to have something to fiddle with and I've got to agree the transformation is very intuitive. That said I am actually reluctant on getting TLK Leader Megatron after the article, but I will probably hop on the train there.

As for Infernocus: I am disappointed that it was so sub-par, I really felt the figure was just too skinny when compared to his movie counterpart overall. I might still try to get it, but I want to snag all the Megatron stuff first from this film along with working on the rest of my Decepticons in my collection.

That said, I particularly want to snag the Megatron voice changing gimmick mask due to reasons. Don't look at me like that. :P

And I think leader megatron does scale with the restaurant of the deluxe class toys. In the movie megatron is about 30ft tall and barricade is 16ft. I think that looks about right when scaleing both of the toys

My Walmart (the closest one to me) has nothing but Grimlocks, Slashes, a few Berserkers, maybe a Barricade or 4, and at least one depainted AOE Bee & the Leader Prime. The only time I saw Voyager Prime was at a KMart farther away from me, though there were a couple of him at a Mexican store called "Soriana Hyper", a hypermarket that had some low prices when I went there for vacation (also meant that Voyager Prime was reduced at 40% off). I also got Berserker on vacation as well, but from a toy store located in a mall instead (can't remember it's name, but I do remember finding Marvel Legends duds instead of the HC Spidey). Prime is the best Voyager I have played with since BH Shockwave, and it was really neat to put him in less hampered poses compared to the larger toys. I'm half tempted to remove the kibble to make him more screen accurate, but I think he benefits with the parts on him. What I do want is to get another copy just to paint him up. As for Berserker, he's a mixed bag for me; he looks good and makes a good substitute for Crankcase, but his head pops off sometimes, the vehicle mode doesn't line up, and worst yet, he's misimg an accessory! I tried contacting Hasbro, they said that they don't offer new parts, but I was going to get a coupon from them (which I never got). Hopefully, I won't run into too many issues with Barricade, new mold Bee, Voyager Megs, Nitro Zeus, Cogman, Hot Rod, and Hound.

Crosshairs looks good but is dying for paint. I miss the days of fully painted car shells.

As for Infernocus, thanks for the warning DMaximus. I was thinking of getting him but if he's that much of a QC shambles I'll avoid him. A shame as he looks pretty cool.

New Deluxe Bumblebee is amazing; I know Bee tends to get a lot of flack for getting far too many toys, but while most repaints look like crap, a new mold is always welcome, and this Deluxe should have been released in the first place!

Crosshairs looks good, but I'm wondering if I should keep my AOE one or sell it; still wish that TLK version has more paint.

Couldn't get into Dragonstorm too much. It would be neat to have him, but I'm fine without him (until I make a stop motion series of 2007-2011 Movie TFs vs 2014-2017 tfs).

Cogman looks brilliant. The car mode may use silver paint, but I just love the way he looks. Plus he'd be great at trolling people that look around with my Lego minifigs.

Infernocus looks neat, but the QC issues turn me off a bit, especially Glug. Maybe if we get a knockoff version, then I'd be down for it. Otherwise, I'd wait for clearance.

Kind of sad when "I'll wait for a knockoff" is actually a valid course action for someone wanting a better-QC version of a toy. (I know you probably meant it more as waiting for an upscale, but honestly it made me realise that one of the 'well-known' KO companies is probably going to do this toy all-around objectively better than what Hasbro managed to do.)

So after a week of leaving him in his box, I finally took Leader Megatron out. overall, I was disappointed. I was looking forward to having fun with the figure, but the transformation is a pain in the ass. Took all the fun out of it. I like both modes, but I don't think I'll be taking this figure off the shelf often. Definitely not worth $50. Good thing that I got it to display next to AoE leader Prime, since the TLK leader Prime isn't screen accurate, thus not worth$50 either. Hasbro seriously dropped the ball with both these figures. And would it be too much to ask for instructions with a little more color in them? Half the time I couldn't see what I needed to do.

A veeeeeeeery intelligent and relevant post RP! Wtf is Hb's consumer department doing? Do they even read of inspect their finished product and it's inserts? As for the toyline, well it shouldn't come as a surprise though. This is the Bayverse based design. :(

Though Takara's is slightly better, the B and W images are just as helpful as a mole rat.
