Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

I didn't even know there were that many Devastators. And I don't think I own a single (green) Constructicon, but that's an impressive display. A "wall of colour", really eye-catching. The display case actually catches my eye just as much as the Constructicons and friends, though. I feel like it comp...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

G2 Skyjack When I was a kid I played with toys as old as G1 Thundercracker (thanks, Robot Points!) all the way up to Beast Wars, but G2 is what I have the strongest memories of collecting. And I think it's fair to say that this toy is where Transformers peaked for child me...the first time I handle...

Re: Human being roll call

You are 110% correct about me not being able to find TikTok.

A call could be fun if enough people were available at the same time, but honestly I spend half my work day on video calls so I don't know if I'd have the energy to show up for another one.

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

Ravage's alt-mode isn't the best thing ever . Nemesis Primal confuses me. Optimus is already mostly black, so the Nemesis scheme doesn't really seem like much of a change. I'd also be up for some Road Rage, but those Target exclusives are really hit or miss up here. The Micromasters and Rainmakers ...

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

The crowd of attention-hungry leakers on the bigger boards seem to be indicating that Ravage will get a regular release in 2022/23 some time, if I'm understanding right. I'm glad they're making a Fangry but I'm really unimpressed that it's part of a $100+ store exclusive four-pack. Unlike Ravage, I'...

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

I was really excited when Hasbro reintroduced Micromasters with Siege, and really underwhelmed by what they actually did with them. A lot of them weren't even better than the original 80s Micromasters, and don't they compare well to UT Minicons. Third parties have done some great work close to that ...

Re: Which characters are you still waiting for a good toy of?

Hasbro are doing Galvatron in toy colours, which as far as the comics go is close enough. It'll do me, anyway :P I saw that! Mostly I was just sad that they didn't remold the head. My cousins had a Galvatron when I was a kid so the toy colours hit me right in the nostalgia, but it's all for nought ...

If you have 2x Ractonite, you can make a crab monster: https://www.reddit.com/r/transformers/comments/mzn3sq/crabtaur_x2_ractonite_combination/ And if Deluxes weren't $33 up here, I probably would have two of them. But I suppose I'll just have to settle for building an abomination with Paleotrex. h...

I have three new Transformers this week!

My only real gripe with it was that neither Sideswipe nor Red Alert came with a full loadout o...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

I just got my second shot. I'm starting to feel a bit yucky. Hopefully it doesn't evolve into the full blown "fevers and feeling like death" that some of my acquaintances had for 12 hours or a day after their second shots.

Well, at least Clay's method isn't jamming a bunch of screwdrivers in between the shoulder pieces and forcibly levering the joint apart. That's an even worse idea!

Re: WFC Kingdom Cyclonus question

I've gotten a few toys over the years that are missing faction symbols or other paint applications. It's rare, but sometimes the factory's quality control people don't notice an error like that before it ships out.

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Out of curiosity, I had a look on ebay for them, and they seem to still be readily available for about the price I paid for them (along with some comically over-priced listings), and even divvied up individually instead of having to buy all four in one go (though I can recommend all four easily, as...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

Long since got to a point where a lot of TFs don't get transformed, as the only entries that don't get displayed in robot mode are things like the Horrorcons, but I woudn't be satisfied with RED or Super7 for characters that are supposed to have alt-modes. The alt-mode kibble, engineering and knowi...

Re: Remembering that our old toys actually exist!

As for Kingdoms Beast Wars figures...I like the beast modes! I like that they're sticking with the intent of the original line - organic beast modes. I prefer these characters looking like actual animals, and not the smoothed out cartoons the limitations of CGI gave us at the time. I understand whe...
