Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Tiny Titans Series 3 (Drift, Filch, Fixit, Fracture, Beast Wars Megatron, Optimus Prime, Repugnus, Shockwave, Springload, Twinferno, Wheeljack, Wreck-Gar)

Series 1 Review

Series 2 Review

After a really cool series 1 and a train wreck of awful paintjobs in series 2, Tiny Titans series 3 came out much better than I expected.

Drift isn’t bad, but if they had at least painted the flair on his weapons blue it would have been a major improvement.

Filch’s feathers are way too subdued.  Instead of sticking out they are flat against his arms and legs.

They didn’t bother paint Fixit except for his face.  He looks awful.

Fracture looks pretty cool, though he needed a few more paint apps.

Awesome.  Beast Wars Megatron is really nicely molded.  Could have used more paint apps, but really well done.

G1 Optimus Prime is nearly perfect.  All they had to do was paint his windows, so of course they didn’t.  Seems Hasbro is doing a great job striving for mediocrity and achieving it.

This one is kind of random.  Repugnus is a G1 Monsterbot.  He’s shown here in his monster mode.  A good choice, and pretty well done.

Shockwave is awesome, and while he could use a few more paint apps, he’s fine without them.

What the fuck?

Twinferno is another G1 Monsterbot.  His original name was Doublecross, but I must admit, Twinferno is an awesome name.  He looks pretty cool, but since Repugnus was in monster mode, I would have preferred him in monster mode also.

What is it with this series and white plastic?  Why in god’s name is Wheeljack gray.  Have they lost the ability to use white plastic?  Otherwise he looks pretty good.

Wreck-Gar needs a lot more paint apps.  He’s got way too much orange.

Overall: This is not a bad wave, but a few paint apps and a little bit of change to the plastic color is all it would take to make these awesome.

Thanks for reading!

    manontheprowl, I don’t have any idea how they’re molded, I just know they’re wrong. If this is the problem, then they need to pay more attention to which characters are being released in which wave and group them together by base color. Of course, there is always paint. That would fix it too. I have no doubt you’re right about the why, but it’s still not an excuse. Thanks for the comment.

  2. You are of course aware that these are gang-molded in groups of four, and thus making Wheeljack white would also result in Springload, “Twinferno” and Optimus Prime being made out of white rather than gray plastic?
