Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Because I'm a goddamn idiot and did a stupid thing, my latest acquisition is... Haslab Unicron Him big. Him very large. Very cool though. Haven't gotten to putting it properly into robot mode, due to time and space constraints. Fiddled with it yesterday enough to confirm everything was fine. Only is...

Re: Human being roll call

That's exactly what a bot would say. By the way, isn't it weird that a message board about Transformers is probably half populated by bots? They're taking over . The robot uprising has begun! Eh, we're probably fine. As long as they remembered to comment out "Become Skynet" when the bots ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Finally got Earthrise Scorponok, which completes my Titan Class Cityformers collection. Here's all 4 with the bonus deluxe class extra bots they put out in the WFC line. I was going to get a photo of the 3rd modes but Sades was doing the photo taking and it was getting increasingly difficult to kee...

Middle ground, as far as I've seen. They charge at the end of the campaign (or when they've reached the required number of backers, the thing is unclear).

Re: OFFICIAL TRANSFORMERS TOYS NEWS

I would imagine the online stores would go through different channels for this? I seem to recall their orders all got added into the count en masse at the end of Unicron's campaign. Glad I'm not the only one who remembers this. Thought I was having one of those Mandela things. So I ordered one of t...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Rodimus Somewhat unexpectedly found this in the wild today and being the Hot Rod/Rodimus mark that I am, I had to get it. Very immediate reaction is that it's not as good as the previous two Commander class figures, since so much of the size is taken up by the flaming box. But that's only t...

Re: [The video game thread]

Been playing through Control again, because someone I occasionally watch was streaming it and because I never got around to the DLC when they came out. I need to clean up a few trophies for the Foundation DLC and then I'm going to start the Alan Wake DLC.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Galvatron Only thing I'm not massively fond of are the guns that look like the spaceship from the film. I'd rather have had the blaster, or nothing, really because it's not like Galvatron needs a gun with that massive cannon on his arm. I'm not sold on the ship guns myself. They're kind of ...

"Yes."
Exactly the thing I was going for.

But more seriously, not gonna do a zoom thing as I generally don't do video calls.
And not going to try hunting down a tiktok as I'm too lazy to do so. Also I don't use tiktok. Yes, I'm boring.

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Kingdom Galvatron Mildly surprised to have been able to find one today, and fortunate that mine has the properly assembled shoulders. He looks better than the initial pictures that popped up a few months back. Easily the best Galvatron we've gotten thus far, though considering the competition that ...

Re: Covid 19 / everybody PANDEMIC

Got my first darting today. Been about 3 hours and no adverse effects yet. Thinking I'm calling off from work tomorrow as a precaution. Don't need to wake up in the morning feeling like hell and having to fumble around for the phone to put in off. Can't wait for enough people to be suitably vaxxed u...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Leader Optimus Prime : Snagged this from an Ollie's (an American discount chain). Not a figure I had any real interest in getting at regular retail price, as I have more than enough G1-style Primes, but was an instant get at $20. Prime turned out to be better/cooler than I was expecting. ...

Not sure if the account I've just removed with a load of COVID denying bullshit was a bot or a person, but the phrase "face diaper" clinched it. I'm inclined to say person, as they had made a reply or two in other threads that looked legit. Either way the post here had to go. That was bul...

Siege Omega Supreme Missed this the first time around for varying reasons, so snagged a preorder when BBTS put one up for it again. Finally arrived today. Hims a big chonky boy. But seriously, Omega's a little bit bigger than I expected. Hell, the rocket portion of the alt mode is surprisingly tall...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've had some thought that they like to figure out the masterpiece design first, then walk it back for regular retail stuff. Hot Rod, Beast Wars Megatron, G1 Inferno and Grapple, etc. A lot of the visual design study seems to carry over, at least. Having just gotten a Kingdom Cyclonus today and giv...

Re: [The video game thread]

The recent news that Blizzard is going to be tarting up Diablo II and rereleasing it for a quick cash grab did very little to make me want to actually buy it, but it did a great job of getting me to install the actual D2 and LoD on my new computer and start busting heads with a Paladin. I'm not sur...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Studio Series 86 Scourge : I was surprised to find one of these earlier today, being that every other time I found anything from this line it was a lone Hot Rod. This is easily the best toy of the ol' flying bathtub they've made, and likely will be the best unless/until they're crazy enough to desi...
