Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I would like to see as many of the Studio Constructicons get alternate color redecos as possible, but not the G1 green/purple. We know we're getting Skipjack/yellow Rampage, and a white Demolishor version of Scavenger seems inevitable. I think what I'd like for Mixmaster is a mostly white with blue...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I like how Spinister's fake cockpit gives him symmetrical legs with an asymmetrical transformation. If they'd had the cockpit split to form the legs like on the G1 toy, they'd need something else to fill the gap in the body of the chopper. If they'd kept one leg the copter, and done the one that for...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Thanks for the link. Mine does not have CHMS or a URL on the box, but does have the tech spec/bio card, so I think it's the real deal.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I don't know what CHMS is. The box says, "Hasbro Transformers Collector's Club Exclusive". The box also says, "Adult collectible, not intended for use by children." which is pretty odd for a redeco of a mainline toy. I guess the new head never went through safety testing. The instructions are still ...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Quintesson 3-pack A Quintesson judge comes with the same Shockwave and Prowl from the spark armor line, but with helmets instead of the armor. The Quint is black instead of greay, and has a flat panel for each face instead of having them come from the egg shaped body. Pushing the top rot...

Re: Siege Hound

It's nice to see someone still doing reviews here. Two minor quibbles. First, you only list 2 acessories, though he comes with 3. Is the small round thing part of one of the other acessories? Second, in the alt mode photo, you haven't folded the toes in, which makes for a more open passenger compart...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I don't know what's worse, that everyone has Spinister before me, or that so many people are buying him because of the one-note IDW portrayal and not the Marvel Comics badass. :( I've never encountered Spinister in fiction. I didn't have the G1 toy, so I haven't even read his bio. To me he has no-n...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I'm so jealous of you Spinister-owning people. :( As well you should be. K-Mart's going out of business, and has all their toys 40% off. I got Cyberverse 1-step Wheeljack, Elite Armor Sky-Byte, and Elite Armor Bumblebee . G1 Wheeljack was my first ever TF back in the day, so I have an affinity/am a...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I opened all the stuff I mentioned last time. The only one close to disappoining is Mirage. He's not bad, except for the arms under the spoiler. I like how his wheels fold into his back to make a well proportioned torso with no backpack, and the translucent blue used for the legs. He just doesn't in...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

That's too bad about Apeface. I was looking forward to him. I saw one at a comic shop and was dissapointed in how much splotchy gray weathering there was. Visiting family for Tanksgiving, their K-Mart's going out of business 30% toys clearance didn't conflict with the chain's BOGO 50% sale on TF, so...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've had some good luck finding exclusives this week. Siege Ratchet (Walgreen's) - A bit underwhelming. The bot mode looks good, except for the bland panels on the sides of the legs, and more battle damage dirt than most figures. It wouldn't be so bad if the battle damage was on the leg panels as we...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Impactor - He vaguely reminds me of CHUG Skullgrin, with his upper torso and arms becoming a turret just a little too wide for the tank body made of his legs. Impactor's far less kibbly in bot mode, though, with just the chunk on his upper back that hides his head looking at all out of place....

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Thundercracker - At Ollie's for $5. I now own 3 versions of this mediocre mold: Acid Storm (because I didn't have a non-kreon Acid Storm), Slipstream (ditto), and TC. He has less non-blue trim than TC normally does, so he's kind of a cheap Ion Storm. If they do a yellow version, I'll pic...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Vintage Rumble & Ravage - $20 seemed kind of steep for these. I figured $16 since that's what two mincars go for, and these are about the same size. These were the only ones left, and all the Soundwaves from last week were gone. So, I figure I can't wait for clearance like i did with Optimus. Carde...

Re: TF Nation 2019

No yet, the stickers weren't in the box, and he's a bit green without them. So once reprolabbles arrive I'll be having a crack. No instructions either, so hopefully he's a simple lad. Encore is the G1 mold, right? Most of the transformations are pretty easy to figure out without instructions, excep...

Siege Brunt - This is my second non-micromaster Siege figure, the other being Flywheels. Maybe someday I'll get a Siege toy that doesn't come apart to transform. The intended partsforming to transform Brunt from bot to tank isn't bad. But, the first time I tried to transfrom him, the elbow detached...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Ollie's nearish me hasn't had anything for TFs for a while. I think they made out with TRU's closing and Walmart not stocking TLK Hot Rod, but those were anomalies. I haven't even bothered going my last two opportunities. At regular stores, I've found: Cyberverse Warrior Slipstream - This is a r...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

I mean, I know you're joking... but are you? I certainly hope so. I'm just glad those TR boxsets with the clones didn't pan out. If they'd sold well enough to do all 4, we'd probably get each Seacon in a different boxset with Cyberverse figures repainted into original characters that don't appear i...
