Wait is that his finished model? I thought his suit was silvery. If this is how he actually looks I'm not really digging it

Well, I remember someone like wideawakewesley or myskylanders or someone said that TFB were actually looking into online during TT as well.

Kinda interesting Wii is listed but not 3DS, suggests they could be going back to the old model where Wii is an inferior port, rather than SC's model where Wii and 3DS are the same game and distinct from the core versions. If that's the case, I'd be disappointed. I like how SC hadnled the Wii and 3DS versions and I think they turned out very well.

Kaos Trophy Single... Meh, though probably means Kaos will be even more widespread online e_e


Maybe they will stop releasing for 3DS and make the alternate version just for Wii. That can be the case, but I don't know.

It deserves the sales. It had a great story and after 47 hours I still have plenty to 100%. It's a game that will last for a great while for those who buy it.

I was so focused on getting all of wave 1, plus the reissue Amiibos, I still haven't even bothered to get the Legendary Sky Pack... if they finally managed to get them into all stores.

I agree. The clear head and gun is nice, but other than that the toy looks boring. Very disappointing figure. Hopefully his gameplay isn't the same.


Yep... Disappointingly bland design-wise.
But to be fair I thought the same about Knight Light and Spotlight when I first saw them online and they look absolutely gorgeous in hand.

Maybe there are some details the camera wasn't able to capture (like those shiny particles on the base, which could be on Astroblast's body as well)... Don't know.
He's definitely not one of my favorite designs now that I can see him well.

Also... Kaos Trophy Single Pack, YAAAAAAY!
I won't have to sell a kidney to get one of them! smilie

Interesting note, has anyone tried Bowser/DK on a non-Nintendo copy of the game? The files aren't there to play them, but it does look like the game is tracking them.

At most I'm expecting the "This figure is not compatible with this copy of the game" screen if anything, but I'd laugh if they show up in the collection.

Guys, 3DS isn't listed because Beenox handles that, TFB probably just lends them models and what have you. What's weird is getting the reins of Wii back from them for this next game.

They won't work.
That was already confirmed in a Q/A; they wanted them to be brand new characters (which they are clearly not) so bad they actually made them act as, say, Spitfire or Dive-Clops.

That's just...at this point they should've just used a character that was close to what they wanted to use instead (i.e. Ignitor as the flame knight, Bumble Blast for his gun). Like I said elsewhere, this just reeks of being forced to use these characters.

Heck Trigger Happy's and Roller Brawl's new versions aren't that different even to warrant that. smilie

Or... You know... Simply come up with new designs, backstories and voice actors.
The rest was already done.

I still can't decide if V.V. was simply lazy or really couldn't find an idea they liked.

I think they want to do their own thing, which is good...but when you have a series like this and the whole idea is "the toys carry forward and somewhat backward", you can't just dump it. There are going to be a lot of confused retail associates and a lot more confused parents that will probably call this their last entry in the series. The traps probably pushed them to that limit already; finding out they do little but act as weapon boosts/skystone unlockers will just add insult to injury.

Speaking of doing nothing, is anyone else laughing at the fact the only location item from the original game that does anything as a placeable object is the Volcanic Vault?
Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 6752
#2066 Posted: 14:47:01 12/10/2015
The location pieces can all be beaten up for mad dosh; they don't move but they do something. Sparx,Ghost Swords and Hand of Fate are the only ones that do anything worthwhile,maybe Winged Boots if you're that big on a hurry.

Words can't describe how ugly this figure looks. This clear, shimmery white just claches terribly with the pearl white. They should've made it more similar. I'm sorry, I liked him and was looking forward to see a good pic, but this... this is just too much. I'm going to get him either way, though I think about ordering the Legendary one. At least his eyes are painted... that makes it a little better. Oh Nightfall, now I miss you even more.

Oh... Even if Astroblast is my favorite... The figure.... of the regular.... Ugh.... It's sparkley which I love but... It just... No... The face just doesn't go with the outfit and its just kinda ugly... Real disappointment for me smilie

And it also misses certain grey-ish colored details and other metallic ones.

Now that I see them side to side, I agree with what everyone is saying. He looks very rushed. They didn't even add that black around his eyes to make them stand out. Hopefully this isn't the finalized version.

OH MY GOODNESS GRECIOUS, NOW IT'S EVEN WORSE!!! I was never bothered by the unpainted boulder Smash Hit has, because everything else looked perfect. BUT THIS! It looks more like a Variant than the regular figure. It will be hard to resist repainting him. (Believe me, it would look worse after a repaint) I really hope he'll change until the official release.
I'm sorry to say that, but Astroblast fell down from one of the best toys, to the worst one in Superchargers.

Perfect example.
Because even if Splat's toy actually lacks some details compared to the CGI model (noticeably the gloves) she still looks freaking amazing.

Astroblast looks as boring as it can get and the fact he's incredibly humanoid really doesn't help.

I randomly decided to open up one of my interchangeable (Nintendo/PlayStation) Rift Engine Portals. Well, just the Rift Engine itself, but still. It was really easy to remove the two pieces of the Engine from the base, and they could be put together easily as well (though with a gap where it attaches to the base).

The top piece of the engine has 2 chips: one at the top, which communicates with the inserted trap's chip, and one at the bottom, which works like the RFID chips in the figures, communicating between the previous chip and the portal (similarly to the 2 halves of the swappers). Then, I put a trap in the detached engine, and put it on my SSF portal while playing SuperChargers, and the trap worked exactly as on the actual portals!

(After this, I reattached the engine to the base of the portal.)

This means that Activision/TFB/VV (or third parties such as PowerA) could in theory make a separate magic item/adapter with those chips to use on SSA/SG/SSF portals, and possibly future portals without trap slots. Maybe even future 3DS games, if they bother implementing some sort of trap functionality into those.

So yeah, it's possible to make a trap adapter by yourself, either just the detached engine (which is quite large, especially considering the small size of the chips) or a custom one. Would be interesting to see what people can come up with, if anyone decided to take on the challenge of making one ;P

(Afterthought: I didn't test this, but I imagine that using it with a Traptanium Portal or a second Rift Engine Portal with a trap already inserted will trigger the message about there being too many traps on the portal, which someone else discovered a while ago in Trap Team.)

The differences between the CGI and the physical Astro Blast toy are obviously mostly due to the difference in lightning and the photo quality, which is slightly overexposed and blurry. I expect it to be actually look a bit more like the CGI, except that the transparent crystal parts won't have a yellow hue.

I could believe that they would say that.I Don't understand why everyone says smilie looks bad.But still not as good quallity.If the final figure looks like that.It should be lower than other SuperChargers.But i don't think
