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

Hoist looks good. Starscream I'm indifferent on, there's been so many seeker options over recent years. Wheeljack's robot looks off to me, can't place why. I like that they gave Cliffjumper his assassination bazooka. Digging the Zarak and thus likely Scorponok

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

Anyone else surprised by how tepid the support has been for this? I figured that they'd blow way past the 8,000 mark without too much difficulty. When it was announced I never in a million years would have thought they'd have this much trouble finding buyers. Not really. Near $600 is a pretty big a...

You're welcome. Glad to be of help. Maybe should have mentioned I have the Unite Warriors version, though that doesn't really impact my prior statements.

Re: Advice sought (general thread)

Haven't had any problems with my Devastator, though I should note that I haven't really broken it down to the individual Constructicons often or run it through varying action poses. So I can't really speak to any durability issues from repeated fiddling. I know it's not 'teh best toy evar' or anythi...

Masterpiece...Lioconvoy? Wasn't expecting that so soon. Looks pretty neat though.
Yeah, this one was unexpected. How do they get to Lioconvoy but still haven't done a Galvatron yet?

Re: G1 Starscream, 1:1 scale jet mode custom!

Surprised we didn't see this sort of thing more often. Reminds of something I saw years ago. Was watching some show on History Channel talking about military vehicles and they were showing off an MLRS or some other mobile missile platform. What caught me by surprise was seeing a small Cobra symbol o...

Aye. And I just had the thought that, whenever they get around to a masterpiece waspinator, I'll probably buy it no matter what they charge.
Here's the thing, do you get the initial release or the eventual V2 when they figure out the engineering required to make him cube-able?

Re: Book Me, Dano.

Thanks! I'll give it a go, but I'll probably wait until I spy the paperback somewhere. Probably the best way to go about it, given your review of the first one. Speaking of the first new Thrawn book, I liked it, cause Thrawn. But I can see how you'd have the opinion you do. It does suffer from 3 th...

Re: New/upcoming toys and merchandise thread -beginning Feb. 2019

Star Convoy looks cool, but does he come with a Micromaster Hot Rod?

Yeah, I don't quite get the point of a new MP Bumblebee. I suppose since they're leaning hard on being as cartoon accurate as possible but man do those feet and backpack look crap compared to V1.

Re: Book Me, Dano.

Star Wars: Thrawn : Alliances - I believe this is the second of a trilogy in the new canon, written by Timothy Zahn. Is it any good? I read the first of his "new canon" Thrawn books a year or two ago and it was okay, but in no way did it grab my attention the way his 90s Thrawn books did. I honestl...

Re: Your Favorite Human(s)

Wouldn't say favorite, but I did soften my opinion on Verity Carlo over the years. Mainly because of the Wreckers books. I kept wanting her show up in MTMTE or Lost Light so we could see the reaction to Uncle Minimus.

Had to do a password reset too. Lazy me and doing the browser saving the user name and password.

Generations Book 2019 has pics detailing the transformation.

That is one hell of a transformation. People also seem to be saying it'll have some manner of sound gimmick

I think it ran $130-150 on initial release in the US.

That V3 OP does look pretty sweet, but not $440 sweet

I'd have to watch it again, I seem to recall him saying something.

If not, I'd just he's off watching over the Sanctum Sanctorum, cause somebody has to do it.
