I’m convinced that the brewmasters of several of my favorite, local New England IPAs are #Transformers fans! ~ Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I could be wrong, but wasn’t there a G1 s3 episode where Kup hunts down a monster (on Regulon 4?) made of “Chaos Emeralds?!” Or maybe it’s just that I’m so enveloped in Transformers mythology, I see them, in places even where it wasn’t intended. Like a Rorschach test where all of my answers of what it the image makes me think of is Transformers! ~

Interesting listing by UK based retailer, In Demand Toys. It appears that Takara will be releasing figures with a more show accurate deco. For example, Siege Optimus Prime with green windows as seen on Netflix series and Studio Series Bumblebee movie with more rusty deco ... though it’s a little hard to tell, given all the red lettering obscuring the view.

Deseeus Army Drone #Transformers #WarForCybertron, #Netflix Ed, Special thanks to @Hasbro for the #FreeSample
Been holding a little grudge against this toy since the moment Double Dealer yelled in response to the Quintesson betrayal, “Oh yeah, you and what army?!” And an army of Ironhide recolors jumped out to take control! (On the Netflix series.). Yeah, we would’ve preferred an army of Allicons or even Sharkticons. Yet this toy is so unexpectedly good, it surprisingly found a way to win me over.
First off, it’s cool that they chose this color scheme for this role - being that the pre-Transformers - Diaclone color scheme of G1 Ironhide was black and silver/grey. Also, it makes sense to me - in a fictional weird way, that Quintessons would have an army of G1 model recolor drones, given their G1-explained history of ruling Cybertron as a factory for manufacture of domestic and military hardware, which were the precursors the Autobots and Decepticons. That they would have an army of drones which resemble a familiar G1 character is cool by me.
Now, I may be in the minority here, but I think the shiny jet black plastics w/ silver battle damage paint deco, alongside with the sliver/grey plastics with a black paint-wash looks absolutely bad@$$. It accentuates the black/silver deco without it looking too contrasting. Couple that with the subtle fluorescent greens in the weapon and Quintesson symbol and purple windshield and you’ve got a phenomenal deco on an already awesome mold from Siege.
By the way, is this the first time an official toy has had the Quintesson faction Symbol?
Overall, I think it looks fantastic and actually makes a fine troop builder *alongside my already strong Alicon army and Quintesson Pit of Judgement set! Cannot believe I’m going to say this, but I’m definitely planning to pick up more when I finally see this figure at retail stores.
