Ya know, for not having the G1 figure and not 'getting' the G1 figure, this guy sure can't get over this guy not living up to the G1 figure :roll:

And reviewers still can't get over the torso's being light, as though they've forgotten the mess that was menasor :roll:

Though his amount of paint apps may have reached an all time low, him and his wavemates, so unfortunate :BANG_HEAD:

I just watched the TB review. That was an ummm... experience.

I'll check the others later.

I was planning on just WJ (not 88) and Hound, but I really want to play around with TB's HFG and that arm cannon looks pretty darn slick.

Yes it is.

Which means that he can have a cannon or a hulk hand. Sweet. :BOT:


Or an axe-hand!

I actually found that review deeply irritating. We've seen 4 characters out of the off-road mold now, and people STILL don't know how the handfootgun plugs into the truckbed.

And when he couldn't transform it properly
-whine
-complain
-blame hasbro
-physically slap the figure
-try to force the joints
-only then calmly check to see if something hadn't lined up properly.

Good god man, treat your figures better!

Needs a disclaimer: "No trailbreakers were harmed during the making of this film."

Yeah, not the best reviews I've seen, the sky lynx and reign one's were worse :roll:

Kinda regret front paging them, but they are informative in the barest sense of the review >:oP

I'm finally warming up to taking a paint marker to some figures to give them silver hubcaps, black out Wheeljack's windows and chest, etc. The paint apps in the past year have been so skimpy in USA.

I hate it that paint apps are where Hasbro cuts costs. (Wish they could put out another dozen Bumblebees or some simple 3-step kid toys to raise some money instead.)

As for other cost saving methods, I've been okay with thinner cardboard and cheaper paper for instructions. But degrading the toy, its plastic quality, its paint, etc. That's a downer. The wing holes (to cut out plastic use) on Sky Lynx — like we saw on Jetfire — are a real bummer, though the figure looks pretty spot on besides that.

I'm pretty excited about all of these. Though they're not perfect, and are retools of Stunticons etc., the head sculpts and homages (like Trailbreakers hand) are lovingly done. Will definitely pick them up.

Why? If you leave the wings folded in, the blue shows throught the cut-outs, which would probably make it look awesome 8-)

I like the peekaboo blue. Looks neat. It's a nice compromise to hollow-ness or lack of paint apps.

At least, since they had to do this, they made it look really cool - this is the type of cost-cutting I'm okay with

No pics of that fist plugged into the arm cannon? :(

Just got my Onslaught/Skylynx box this afternoon. All I can say is wow. Onslaught is incredible! Easily the best torso for the entire line, everything on him is so secure and tight. Well, actually I haven't turned Skylynx into torso mode yet so I can't definitively say that, too busy drooling over Bruticus.
=P~ :michaelbay: :APPLAUSE:


I think someone wanted to see Skylynx with 4 legs? I don't know if anyone posted a pic yet, but he looks goofy as heck. Doesn't work very well imo. Makes him look like a weird tower with a bird head on top or something :lol:

Oh my gosh that is hilarious.

I was too busy fawning over Bruticus so I really didn't bother trying to make Skylynx look good in that first pic. Here's a couple pics of a slightly better configuration with the back legs reversed to allow the joint to move more freely.

There are probably better options if you're gonna do this, but these are my only free limbs at the moment.

All hail Stomplynx!

Is that a custom Cyclonus gun/Galvatron cannon on his wing?

Yeah, I painted the one that came with Cyclonus awhile back. No reason for Skylynx to have it other than it was sitting there when I was taking pics, and well, why not?
:-D

I actually never got around to painting the back section that pops off, but you can't really tell in the pic. It would have been mostly gray anyway.

Hey thanks for remembering my request!!! That does look a bit goofy but for some strange reason I love it! Could you do it backwards in the fan mode Lynx mode by chance?

I can go for this. Trailbreaker with a little Cutter in him! (puns haha)

But this review didn't cover that much extra. I will be posting Emgo reviews as they come cause he does show stuff that most other reviewers don't, such as proper H/F/G integration.

Optibotimus, you got these guys yet? Able to give any other opinions or have any reviews up soon?

And I'm hoping at least someone does a review that does include Hound's shoulder cannon attachment. It really does work and is awesome for the mold. :BOT:

That cannon looks pretty incredible in those colors. I even like the little green sight!

Sure thing, D-Max!

Now I'm not sure if I have the optimal configuration for Lynx mode, still not too familiar with this figure yet but hopefully it's close enough to give you a good idea.

The front legs in Lynx mode(back legs in bird-dino) are a lot harder to pose since they don't have any outward movement at the shoulder(hip) area.
