I'd be more worried about having doubles of the guys who are clogging pegs now, particularly Cybertron Prime and Bumblebee.
Since we're rounding the corner into the last few months of the year, I was thinking we could start looking at what's been particularly stand-out so far in TF in 2010 to help the end-of-year discussions along when we get there. I believe these are the lines with product that came out in 2010...
- Movie 2
- A few Crossovers of no real note
Is that it, or am I missing something?
Here's my list so far, broken down by line.
So far, not a bad year, but a bit of a long break towards the middle hampered momentum.
IMO, that head is a bit too small for the body, it has to be to fit in the cavity that Straxus' larger, squarer head fits in.
The instructions on Straxus actually show Skullgrin's head in the drawings, which gave it away ahead of time. :p
As for Blurr and Dirge, I like Drift better than Blurr. I would've liked for him to have his own alt mode mold. Instead of Drift's long sword, Blurr comes with a rifle, while the two knives for Drift are replaced by blasters for Blurr. I don't really think of Blurr as the sniper type so I could've done without that accessory.
About Dirge, the flaws of this mold have been well documented so there's no real need to get into that. Unlike Thrust, the colors are really sharp on Dirge. As far as Classics seekers go, this one and Ramjet are probably my favorites.
Yeah, I meant Starscream, I haven't been sleeping that great lately. :p Jetfire didn't even come out this year.
Seaspray is not a Generations figure, it's a movie figure. Why? I have no idea, it's only got chicken legs in common with them.
I wish Rodimus had turned out a little better and made my list, but it doesn't work for me well enough to put it up there.
I left Bludgeon off my list because technically he came out at the end of last year, but I didn't get him until February of this year, so I may have to revise that. Not sure though.
I saw MP Grimlock for the first time the other day. What a great looking figure. I really wanted to pick it up, but I just couldn't justify the 70 bucks considering I don't have MP Megatron.
I also saw Leader Class Starscream. What is up with the voice in him. It's horrible.
I like the voice on Starscream. It's the voice actor from TF: Animated, but aiming more for the Chris Latta G1 sound, which I think he got about 90% there.
