MP5G Gold Megatron ain’t so bad

gold-megatron

He definitely wasn’t the Leader we deserved, but he was the leader we got. Thanks Batman, thanks.

 

I’m sick of hearing the hate for this guy!  That purple makes all the difference for me.  The big sadness is that the accessories are all the same as the original.  I mean, couldn’t Kremzeek have at least been molded in a different color?  Like Blue?

For under $60 from Lena, I think this was a steal.

The Transformers Robots in Disguise 2015 Decepticons look awesome

transformers-RID-2015-decepticons-cartoon

Some of the most unique-looking characters I’ve seen in Transformers for decades… ok, 3 decades to be exact.

Check out the still frames above to see some fun creature-based Decepticons the likes of which we haven’t seen before.  This is definitely an premutation of the TF Movie trend of ‘monsterizing’ the Decepticons to further solidify their places as the villains of the story.  But here we have some really unique things going on.  The monstrous Decepticons are just their regular form, much like Ravage or Ratbat from the Generation 1 series.  They still change into vehicles like submarines and cars!  This is great!  Anthropomorphic Decepticons!  My personal favorite is Thunderhoof who just looks like a stoic and cunny adversary that may end up the right-hand man of series villain Steeljaw.

I’ve heard some static about the Decepticons in this series, but I am loving them for a few reasons:

  1. They all seem to be brand new characters.  I don’t see a Megatron, Starscream, or Soundwave anywhere!  Yay for new blood!
  2. They still look like Decepticons.  The color schemes, their general aesthetic, and their demeanor all point right to the side of darkness that we’ve all come to love.
  3. There are TONS of them!  It definitely seems like the cartoon is reverting back to the ‘monster of the week’ type of story-telling but it has worked in the past.  Here’s hoping for tons of toy versions of these guys.

So yeah, that’s it.  Can’t wait to see more of these Decepticons in action.  End of story.

3A Transformers release schedule – Neo Masterpiece toys in the work?

3a-transformers-toys

Do we need more renditions of these guys? I hear an unanimous YES!

UPDATE: Well my calculations were incorrect – the figures are all going to be from Dark of The Moon, not G1.
I’ve been given a tidbit of information regarding the reveal of the upcoming officially licensed 3A Transformers toys.  Fans of 3A need no introduction to the company, but for those Transfans that hate to stray, they do ultra-realistic model-esque action figures that defy the rules of what an action figure actually is.  What remains to be seen is just how far 3A has taken the Transformers license.  Will they go the Hot Toys route and just have a really nice looking poseable action figure or will we get the holy grail – fully transforming accurate robot and alt-mode action figures?  I’m sure we’ll find out soon because here’s the proposed schedule of releases!

  • 2nd week of December 2014 – Bumblebee
  • 2nd week of January 2015 – Optimus Prime
  • February 2015 – Megatron, Starscream

Holy shit-cakes, I’m excited but my bank account is trembling.  Actually, there’s no word yet on if these are even going to be G1 or not.  Let’s hope so, and NOT MOVIE TOYS!!!!
