Re: Worst Transformers alt mode?

At least the pretenders had shells to hide that kind of thing.

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

Here's Studio Series deluxe 2020 wave 1

Same stuff as was rumored a few weeks ago: ROTF Bee (which seems to be a remold/reshell of the `76 Bee, which is itself a reworking of the 2017 Bee, golly), WWII Hotrod (Bee remold), Arcee three pack, and DOTM Soundwave with Laserbeak.

Neat.

Re: Advice sought (general thread)

Thank you. That's more or less what I thought. I'll look into getting one to go with Omega. :)

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

And here's Generations Piranacon in gray prototype.

Looks like all six Seacons are present and the weapon mode for the combiner is retained.

<sigh>

How much?

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I've gotten quite a few new things in the past couple of weeks. After getting Brunt, I went back and found Siege Red Alert. I like that his colors complement Sixgun's, who is now Red Alert's (almost coherent) jet pack. Still pondering who to get for Cog... maybe Crosshairs? I also got several Studio...

Re: Advice sought (general thread)

So, does anyone have something nice to say about Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Devastator? I've passed on it until now, but the Takara version that has elbows and whatnot has been reissued, and it does look okay-ish next to the new Omega Supreme... I'm tempted. I know it's not great , but does anyone...

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

I was just going to post that.

I mean, I'm more surprised by these than the giant Unicron.

What's with the names? Aragon, Cromar, and Zetar? Surely they're a reference to something.

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

It's still early on the west coast (~7:30am), so they might still have a product display case update for today, but it seems that we didn't get to see much in the way of new stuff that wasn't revealed in the past two weeks. No signs of the next Titan or Commander class this time. :| I should like to...

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

Also, the other two dino cassettes are getting reissued. Together with those two different Bumblebee garage sets from last year, we've actually got some of the rarest and most expensive G1 toys on the secondary market made available again, and reasonably cheaply. I wonder if Takara will dust off Enc...

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

Found the scales! Titan Metroplex, at 22" tall, only weighs a whopping 5 and 3/4's pounds, meaning Unicron easily weighs over three times as much.

(that's way more than a Metroplex or Fort Max and not way, way bigger).
But much, much heavier.

Makes me curious. BRB

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

Various sites have posted pictures of WFC gray Shockwave (Shackwave?), as well as another Orthia/Elita Infinite combiner limb. More interestingly, they've posted rumors/solicits for SDCC reveals (which is next week, I think?). No specific characters mentioned, but it says that SDCC will show off the...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I found Brunt a while back. He's neat, and nicely complements Trypticon and Full-Tilt. Only frustration I have with him is not having a clear and neat way to add his bits to Trypticon's dino mode, so Brunt's disassembled and tucked into T's tail. I also bought a Unique Toys Challenger, which is a ma...

Re: [The video game thread]

Steam summer sale, whoo!

I picked up Sundered, Environmental Station Alpha, Jotun (after playing Sundered), Hollow Knight, and... I think that's it. Have played Sundered lots and lots so far, and ESA a little. Haven't started on the other two yet.

Re: Repair Question/idea

I'm a bit late to reply, but I think the easiest solution would be to part-swap from an Armada Predacon and just paint those bits gold or whatever the color is supposed to be.

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

My take as well. The line's been good but the character selection for the first few waves couldn't have been more vanilla. Oh, how quickly we've forgotten Flywheels, Cog, Sixgun, and Brunt. :) (but yeah, I know what you mean) I'm definitely getting Apeface and Astrotrain. I just hope they come out ...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

MP-05 Megatron - From a comic shop for $75. I thought he was MISB, but upon getting him home, I noticed the tape on the box flap had been cut. He looks great, though, and appears to have all his accessories, except the orange barrel tip which I'm glad is gone. From what I've read about him, I expec...
