NEST RoTF Line in PA

Postby Shinobitron » Fri Jan 01, 2010 10:11 am

Just a heads up that the new line of Transformers is hitting PA. THese figs were supposed to be out at Christmas time but of course Hasbro is late to deliver. This line features Brawn, Bludgeon, Dirge, and a few repaints.

Are they nice looking or the usual ROTF junk?

I saw the NEST figures at Walmart the other day, but they didn't have Bludgeon, and that's the only one that's actually good looking and pays good homage to the original Pretender.

Actually, the Bludgeon looks pretty good, and Ironhide is kinda cool, so not that sucky, well not to me...

Well Bludgeon is a tank and he transforms into his Pretender like shell, so I guess it's kinda reversed.

Brawn looks like his old self and come with guns. I remember reading that lots of TF fans complained about the RoTF toys looking like wires and crap so the went with a more classics look to the new figures. Each has hands feet and weapons. Weapons can be used by other bots too which is alwats good.

These i might have to look into getting if they get them in around here. I think the lack of sales finally got Hasbro's attention.

everyone thinks i'm odd for buying import g1 reissues and their version of the classics line but at least Takara knows what fans want.

NEST was the name of the HUman/ TRansformers alliance in the movie it really has little to nothing to do with the actual toys.

Bludgeon and Brawn are TRULY AWESOME and I believe they are examples of Universe figures being released under the ROTF banner. Take it from someone who is old enough to understand and join Sephiroth when it comes to importing/buying G1 figures but young enough to appreciate the new stuff to those are 2 figs Fans should not pass on.



P.S the new NEST figures are part of a mail away campaign buy 3 mail away the barcode get a free ROTF Ravage repaint.
