Transformers Generations

Mixing things up a bit. Let's have one forum for toy discussion. We can have multiple threads, or just one thread, doesn't matter, but let's try having it all in one place for a while and see if that doesn't help discussion. '

And just a reminder... we don't really mod... anything... so thread drift is not a problem. However I left the General forums because some topics require more time/seriousness/devotion... I.E. more than "drift"

All the other toy forums are under archives, so we can bring them back if everyone hates this.

A sticker sheet?

That's awesome!

Sticker sheet? Cool.

Figure? Not cool. That's really ugly. Looks like a bayformer.

Again, that guy is pure G1. That's exactly what Whirl looked like.

Whirl doesn't look like a Terminator endoskeleton, and he's not covered with kibble.

If whirl was covered in fractured-looking panels with spiky bits, I could probably see what you're saying, Jason, but he isn't.

He's gangly and he has weird feet; that's not "automatic bayformer" to me.

Again, G1: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers- ... /287/1/18/

It's the same design, just with a slight update.

By comparison, look at the G1 design of any character that showed up in a Bay movie, and then compare to the movie design. Bayformers are 90'S EXXXXTREEEEEME. Whirl is just an update of an original design. He's very 80's "real robot", because the show he came from was a real robot mecha cartoon. The new one has more detail (and stranger feet, sure), but it's largely unchanged.

An actual Bayformer helicopter for comparison:

I think Jason may use "bayformer" like some guys use "neon"; i.e. "that is something I don't personally like."
