Hey, since you like dinobots or TF characters that turn to dinosaurs, have you seen TF Cybertron Brimstone and/or Undermine or he's Autobot repaint, Repugnus?

What would be your opinion, if Combaticon Blast Off would use 2007 TF Classics Deluxe Class Astrotrain mold?
Reply
:iconzigholtul88:
Can't comment on it much considering I was never into collecting when Classics Astrotrain was released and so I never got one. Trying to get one now though....... yeah not gonna happen. Besides Blast Off needs his own mold, as does the rest of the Combaticons.

Hey, what is your favorite toy mold from Hoist? 
Reply
:iconzigholtul88:
Well I only have two versions, the ROTF Longarm redeco and the Thrilling 30 one and I'm gonna have to go with the latter version.

I agree, that 2007 live movie Longarm redeco works on Hoist. Generations Thrilling 30 toy is good presentation of Hoist (I gonna have that Thrilling 30 Hoist).


Botcon 2013 Hoist is also good presentation of Hoist (even though, some boneheads have made two misassemblys: misassembled torso and shoulders in the wrong sides.)

Mate you definitely have to grab Generations Hoist. Sure he's a bit on the small side but just like Orion Pax still an awesome figure none the less.

First of all that is still too expensive and besides I'm perfectly happy with my custom painted Beast Hunters Ultra Magnus. Speaking of some good news my Armada Shattered Glass Thundercracker is finally finished. I just need to take pictures and then I'll upload them sometime today. Its gonna be a candy coated extravaganza.

Good to hear. BTW, you haven't yet told your opinion about this idea: As you know, there are only two toy versions of Trypticon: original G1 toy and 2007 TransFormers Classics Legends Class toy. I think, TransFormers: Platinum Edition should honor Trypticon by repainting TF Cybertron Scourge mold in to Trypticon.

Personally I think Trypticon is in need of a brand new mold. Hasbro has surprised us with Generations Metroplex and given that this year seems to be the year of the Dinobots I think right now would be a perfect opportunity to release a brand new Trypticon. I originally wanted to grab the Cybertron Scourge mold but one that really annoys me about it is that it has what I like to call dumb bell arms. Its present on figures like HFTD Bumblebee, ROTF Long Haul, Beast Hunters Bulkhead, 2007 movie Arcee, and many others I cannot recall off the top of my head. I really wish Hasbro would stop doing this, also that includes having the robot heads of various figures be made out of clear plastic. When will they realize that clear plastic just cannot tolerate much pressure compared to standard plastic. Oh well at least they fixed the gold plastic syndrome problem that plagued many G2 and Beast Wars figures. Damn it I freaking loved Torca, he was my favorite Fuzor.

I like your monster sketches.

Oh man what I've uploaded barely even scratches the surface. I still have a binder with over a hundred different creatures that I created when I was still in high school. Basically what I have uploaded is probably the best that ever came out of there. I think its about time I started redrawing some of these monsters only with better proportions.

That would be cool. Surrealism is awesome!

Now I just remember how to even draw monsters again. I've been sketching nude females for so long that I've seem to forgotten how to draw something that wants to chew my face off.

I guess you're right. Though I know some cool Americans too. The guy blocked me by the way, that's why I'm here.

I see people like him all the freaking time on Youtube which is really depressing when you think about. If all this so called anti white mantra really bothers him so much then maybe he outta forget about bitching about it online and actually try to do something about it. That's something that really pisses me off about so many people in this country and the sad thing is that I used to be one of them.

By the way you're welcome to browse my gallery if anything here interests you. I may not be the most talented but I do try to present some degree of originality.

I'll take a look.

So evilsidehyde is once again up to his stupid shenanigans. Created yet another thread detailing all the hardships that white people have to face. Well this one was in regards to the White Man March. I've never heard of it and quite frankly its freaking stupid. I called him out on his bullshit, he responds back then blocks my ass like a freaking coward. I really hate how abusive people here are with the block option.

Now as for what I do, I normally just paint Transformers figures but I am kind of an artist from time to time. Some of it though is rather mature but compared to what you typically find on this site its really tame. I feel like I'm one of the few people here that doesn't sketch women in a sexual pose and of course those are more popular.

Hey, watch this TF toy news from today www.seibertron.com/transformer….

I would be excited but the Toys R' Us that I normally go to just recently shut down. Its a good thing I don't collect Masterpiece figures or else I would be pissed.

Is Energon Grimlock really that bad? I know the proportions look a little funky but is it any worse than FOC Grimlock where the plastic quality feels rather thin?
Reply
:icondoctorvk:
Well, to some Energon Grimlock is bad, but Hasbro want to use it as G1 Grimlock. As you can noticed, Energon Grimlock has identical look and transformation to G1 Grimlock.
Reply
:iconzigholtul88:
That's what I noticed but it looks a bit stumpy, probably due to it being a deluxe. Interestingly enough I'm more looking forward to his AOE counterpart. If anything I could paint it up so it looks better.
