Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Siege Race Car Race Track Sports Car Patrol I can never tell those car Micro teams apart. Or, heck, the team members, mostly. So this is Blackjack and, uh... Road Hugger Detour Hyperdrive ! That's the one. Hyperdrive is good. He looks pretty similar to Stakeout, so I was hoping he'd be as nice, but...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Marvel Legends Mister Sinister My favourite ridiculous late 80s/early 90s villain and it's not even close. He's just the biggest pile of nonsense ever. I swear I've read dozens of comic issues starring him and seen him a ton in the 90s show and I still couldn't tell you what he wants beyond SCIENCE...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I think Furman's biggest weakness is that for modern comics he can't write for TPB, which for better or worse is how many people read paper comics now of days. I don't necessarily agree with that. Keep in mind that I haven't read his IDW output since it was relatively new (my big pile of early IDW ...

Re: Worst Transformers alt mode?

Do we count the Cyberverse subline where everyone only half-transforms into a weird hybrid between robot and vehicle? If so I think those win by default. If not, that Megatron has to be up there with things like the old Legends-class Movie Jazz that had a second grille and set of headlights slapped ...

Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

Apologies in advance...this is probably going to get wordy. :) I just felt like writing all of this down after all the reading I did. Inspired by our friend dalek's frankly amazing retrospective on the UK book, I set myself the task of reading the entire Marvel run in one go. About a quarter of the ...

Re: Your Latest Non-TF Toy Acquisitions

Marvel Legends Silver Samurai Kind of middling, TBH. The figure is well-executed, I guess. It has a full complement of articulation and even features the waist swivel/upper torso ball joint combo that I hope becomes standard on all Legends eventually. Tons of paint, tons of molded detail...probably...

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

As much as I love pink and teal Decepticons, I'm not sure if I'll have room for another combiner team. If they come out in the West for normal prices, though, I may have to find the room! Or, you can get the box set, which is only available at radio shacks. Not the defunct electronics chain, but act...

I found the Target exclusive 10 pack of Micromasters from the Siege War For Cybertron Trilogy at a Toys"R"Us near where I work.
Nice find! How much was TRU asking for them?

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

IIRC they had those names back in the 80s in...France? Italy? One of the European countries where Hasbro released the line through a third party, anyway.

In retrospect, it's pretty weird that Hasbro didn't at least slap names on them.

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

Me: *bitches about vanilla character selection*

Hasbro: *makes new Powerdashers*

Well, they sure shut me up. :) Powerdashers aren't really my thing, but full marks for effort. I never in a million years thought we'd get a full set of new toys for these three.

Omnibots next? Pretty please?

So, first off, the obligatory pic... https://i.imgur.com/vrRa3O7.jpg And the obligatory gripe: this is in no way, shape or form a Leader-class toy. And I don't just mean t...

Toy-based Reflector . As someone who owned the original as a kid, I was very excited when rumours of this started to make the rounds. But this...this is so disappointing. :( No new heads or other retooling, just a few add-on bits slapped on. The colours aren't even close to right. It sucks to see t...

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

It probably is, actually! Since they're basing this line pretty heavily on the cartoon.

TBH they're both "Rumble" to me because Frenzy is just an absolute non-entity in every way.

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...

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...

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'...
