Of course Inferno is off.
His butt is supposed to split into 4 large fins that works like a helicopter (which this new toy only has 3)
And he holds a blue single barrel shot gun, not a red 4 barrel gun.

Just saw Herogasm scene yesterday, so the ?tongue? doesn?t bother me.

We are so desensitized by now. But the "ant-man inside" scene was by far more disturbing than anything in the herogasm episode. Ok, maybe not the Octopus part, but that was totally its idea.

In any case, this Ant Dude Inferno is a much needed improvement over the original 90's toy.
I wish they could have done the tail section differently, but like the other bug based bots, the stuff has to tuck under the back-end.
For my collection, I've got Scavenger as a super freaky version of Inferno, and we'll see if this one somehow replaces it.

That Starscream is pointless. Pretty much the same as the T30 and they didn't even attempt to make the colors show accurate (and those weapons are ass).

Inferno on the other hand is a day one preorder.

Re: Transformers Legacy Voyager Armada Starscream & Beast Wars Inferno First Images

Hmm... Armada Starscream doesn't look too bad. Including a Star Saber was a good choice (if a bit too simple in paint apps). But I'm still mulling over whether to by UT Legacy toys. The original ones were already REALLY good (particularly Cybertron - Armada was more just plain fun for gimmicks, not for poseability). And I sold them years ago... Feels weird to rebuy more expensive smaller versions (other than Metroplex).

Re: Transformers Legacy Voyager Armada Starscream & Beast Wars Inferno First Images

I don't see any Mini-Con pegs on Starscream. That's disappointing. I don't expect them to add the mechanical gimmicks that the Mini-Cons would activate, but they could've at least included the peg.

Re: Transformers Legacy Voyager Armada Starscream & Beast Wars Inferno First Images

If they had the wing sword everyone would be complaining about partforming. They don't include it and everyone complains the figure is a "step-down." It's a lose-lose.

The original sword looks like crap, this is a better option.
