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

It weighs 19 pounds, apparently. I'm assuming that explains some of the cost difference vs. the retail Titans. I've never bought one but I don't remember the boxes weighing as much as a small child when I looked them over in stores. I'm right with you, though. "Looks good, glad it exists"...but a ha...

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

Star Saber or Sky Lynx as the Commander, maybe? I wish they'd do Scorponok at that size but yeah, he's probably the Titan.

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Stranger Things! All three seasons of it in about three weeks, actually. It's really good stuff. Well-written, suspenseful, with characters that it's hard not to care about. The kids in particular are great. They actually manage to make them feel like real kids, if that makes sense...so smart yet so...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Soundwave: I'm pretty sure I'm going to blame Heinrad for this. Soundwave here is the first "bigger" Siege toy (Deluxe or bigger) that I've actually paid retail price for. He doubled as an impulse buy while I was out buying other stuff and also as a "I need something new to occupy me while I'...

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

Oh, how quickly we've forgotten Flywheels, Cog, Sixgun, and Brunt. :) I said "character selection", not "accessories for big toys they released years ago selection". Flywheels is the only one who counts. ;) I do appreciate the weaponizers, really I do. They're just surrounded by so much 1984 that t...

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

This is great. I've liked the Siege toys I've bought, but I've not been totally sold on it because of the focus again on the '84/'85 characters who, in the main, have been well represented already. My take as well. The line's been good but the character selection for the first few waves couldn't ha...

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

YES. All four of these are fucking amazing. I hope they're regular releases and not Selects that I'll have to chase down from specialty stores. BUT I ABSOLUTELY WILL IF I HAVE TO. Spinister and Crosshairs have been my #1 and #2 most wanted characters since, well...since Classics started. This is eve...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

The Weaponizers are surprisingly fun, yeah. I don't have Sixgun, but I enjoy tearing Cog to bits and bolting him onto random ports on other bots. I bought a few Transformers myself over the weekend, for the first time since January! Siege Sideswipe: Well, my three year old has claimed ownership over...

Yeah, this one was unexpected. How do they get to Lioconvoy but still haven't done a Galvatron yet?
Now that they're making his Maximal counterpart, I'm half-expecting a BW Galvatron before a G1 version. It sound silly, but you just wait!

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Marvel Legends Jubilee: A really nice effort! Like Beast and Gambit, she seems to be mostly (or maybe totally?) new parts. She's got better articulation than the standard female figure, especially in the torso. And since this is a dedicated sculpt there's lots of molded costume detail, so she doesn...

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

Would he have more parts than, say, Movie Barricade or Bumblebee though? Those are 2/3s the price. I think they're simply increasing the price incrementally until they find the limit of diminishing returns on the scale of units sold versus MSRP. Sunstreaker is equivalent in size and accessories and...

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

Thats close to triple what I paid for most of the Takara MP cars back when I was ordering them, for sure. Of course, there's also a good chance he's got close to three times as many moving parts as Sideswipe or Prowl or Wheeljack, in the name of cartoon accuracy in robot mode... I'm honestly surpris...

Re: Movie thread, or; what movie did you watch last?

Yeah, I loved the movie as a kid but it hasn't aged well. I watched it fairly recently and I found myself cringing at as many scenes as I enjoyed. And wondering how in the world I got away with watching it at eight years old with all the filthy innuendo that Penguin was spewing. There's definitely c...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Marvel Legends Beast: A really well put-together figure. Very well-articulated, with good range of motion in all the joints (something that "big guy" Legends figures usually lack). Also very well-balanced (though not quite as well as the "handstand" pose would suggest...that takes some work to get ...

Re: Dalek and Warcry's Endless Star Trek Thread

So would I. I'm not sure how I'm going to watch this though, since it's probably going to be on a cable network in Canada and we gleefully cancelled our cable last year. Maybe Netflix will pick it up for reruns? I made a quick trip onto some Trek fansites and was mildly amused to find fans of the No...

Marvel Legends Forge showed up...late last week, I guess? I was going to take a pic or two before posting about him, but he's so disappointing that I haven't bothered. He's pretty much a straight repaint of that generic male body mold (if you're an ML collector you know precisely the one I mean...t...
