I wonder if Mainframe was chosen in part because Mainframe made Beast Wars what it is?
... If that's the case then that will be the most flimsy, most terrible justification for a character choice ever. And as such I will only love it all the more more and reaffirm my commitment to buying this monstrous ridiculousness.
I really am hoping that Mainframe (the figure) plugs into the Ark as discussed up-thread, though. If that bridge mode just kind of sits to the side of the Ark as a "play feature" it'll be very disappointing and cheap. I'm hopeful though that that feature is part of the reason why the robot mode torso doesn't have a more interesting transformation conversion sequence - it needs to work around the resulting chest cavity. I am, however, as in all areas of life, braced for disappointment all the same.
I felt bad, but yeah, everything he said or did was like fingers on a chalkboard! I skipped probably 80% of the "review", especially when he started yelling BS at his cameraman/ producer.
The toy looks good. I like the idea of it. But there seems like a LOT of wasted opportunity. The gun turrets not being posable, for one. Where's his Titan Master? It's just flip the nose and there's his head and now he has a hoodie.
I really like the Teletraan-1/ Mainframe bot, that's pretty cool.
