Transformers Movie Stuff

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.

Some of the figures for Trans5mers are starting to show up, and they're surprisingly not bad. I really like the new Barricade.

Bumblebee's more of the same (a repaint, even), but Berserker is a new mold. While I'm still not big on the movie aesthetic, they seem to have captured it well in Berserker. If you're down for a creepy monster robot guy, he seems like a pretty good choice.

Wow! Barricade almost looks--dare I say--G1!

Or at the very least, he looks like a Generations figure.

Yeah; I could definitely see picking him up. I might swap out his head for something more traditional, but then again, maybe not.

Makes me very curious to see where they go with the rest of the movie designs.

Oh, man. I just noticed that he's got molded-on brass knuckles that say "protect" and "serve". Yeah, I'm going to wind up getting this guy just for laughs. Plus, he seems to be packing two pistols and a nightstick, in addition to that weird bracelet machine gun thing.

Yeah, barricade isn't bad. I need some more deceptions for my shelf. Anyone seen titans soundwave anywhere?
