That looks great. Okay it's panelly as **** but I think it's the best we're gonna get and compared to previous Dinobots it's pretty much perfect.

The robot mode looks awesome and almost makes me regret selling Cheetor. But then I remember Cheetor was bad so it even itself out.

Wasn't the initial price on Shockwave something absolutely ****ing ridiculous that then came down to not quite so mental? Yes I know I could go and check, but I can't be arsed. Considering that we've gone April to December without a release I care about and that the next one I'm vaguely interested i...

Y'know what I'd like? For third party companies to include instructions that tell you how to transform a toy from the mode it's actually been packed in.

Do we know how well the previous DVD release sold?

Haven't they done that many versions of that now that surely everyone must be beyond giving much of a toot? Yep. Existing footage (with links) done on VHS and DVD. The McGann audio remake. The novelisation (multiple novelisations?). I really don't see the logic in prioritising an incomplete unbroad...

Good news everyone!

The BBC have announced another classic Who completed through the use of animation.

Unfortunately, it's Shada.

Which, like, really? Like, seriously? Why? Why would you do that? Just. Why?

And in a move nobody saw coming when Pretenders were brought back, Takara are bringing down the average costs on the Fort Max mould some more by giving us Grand Maximus. Because obviously.

And the inevitable Greatshot redeco of Sixshot had also been announced.

Well I hope everyone who always wanted a Dinobot combiner is happy. I'm still going to be laughing about that when I'm fifty.

Big fan of Windcharger's "oh yeah this lemon is really tasty, no seriously" face.

Cheers Cliffster. And just to clarify in case the 0.00000002% chance that marisa's being serious is actually legit: Marvel Legends is a toyline. Marvel Contest of Champions is a mobile game.

Hi, could a mod delete the relevant posts in this thread, please? I'd like to use it as an ongoing ML discussion for future and don't really want to have to navigate the debris of me murdering a troll every time.

So where do we stand on letting a boring troll post obvious bait endlessly? Leave it run as there's bugger-all activity and no-one's biting? Or shall I bother locking it?

Points to Hasbro for giving the official Dinobot combiner a name that's somehow worse than every single terrible fanwank story that's come before.

Oh hey, the two newest volumes of the Complete IDW Simon Furman Transformers Partwork have arrived.

- Part 2 of Regeneration One.
- Maximum Dinobots and some assorted Spotlights that I would have put before Revelation but hey I'm not in charge of sequencing this car crash.
