@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

It gets everywhere?

@  Paladin : (09 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

i hate snow.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

Boo. If they were gonna release something, how about Omega Sentinel... or even Supreme in G1 colors...

On the other hand, the box art is absolutely hilarious. For a time, I considered sparing you, but now you shall witness DULL SURPRISE

I was hoping for something like this just yesterday. Except in my hopes, Unicron was repainted to looks more like his G1 self. Maybe they STILL have a jiveload left over from Armada?

Weird. Seems like Retailers would run screaming from this guy at this point. But then again all that movie toys money probably makes them more forgiving.

I got my second Armada Unicron for like 15$ at Tuesday Morning.

Here's a mirror of the image:


I think it would've been nice if the colors were tweaked a bit to match the movie version just a little better, but heck, it was already almost spot-on. And it really has been five years since it was first released, so it does seem like a reasonably smart item to release to kids and collectors sucked in by the movie, Animated, Classics, whatever.

Why does all of the universe box art make it look like the subject's whole body is leaning backwards?

edit: I was able to get a Unicron from Target for $8 back during Energon.

I still have my Unicron from Armada... But I changed out the red LED for a green one. Soldering guns are your friends! (Just don't grab them at the business end. icon-hotrod.gif ) Also, I painted some silver around his helmet to look more traditional.

My guess is Hasbro still had a boat load of these in storage, thus no new paint schemes.

Now this is nice. I don't own the original, it's well past time I'd ever find it on clearance in stores, and ebay prices are ridiculous. I'm actually happy, as I'll get a shot at owning it (a friend had it back in the day, so I know it's a good mold)

I sincerely hope this is the final version. That way, people who weren't alive or interested back in 2003 can have a Unicron of their own, and I don't have to feel like there's a superior version to the Armada one.

I could see myself getting it if they gave it a repaint making it more similar to the G1 version. Otherwise no thanks already have the Armada and energon versions.

What a coincidence. I still need a Unicron

Interesting that there is a Universe Supreme class though. Possibility for future new molds, or just made up for a few rereleases of important characters?

Now I just need to hope it actually comes out here, unlike Classics Devastator

Dang. If they were rereleasing it, why couldn't they have given it a more accurate colour scheme. Even the transparent-to-grey plastic switch mentioned above would have been welcomed.


Oh well, I guess i'll be waiting for the properly G1 coloured Henkei version icon-fire.gif I wonder what they'll chrome on him, maybe his jaws? Awesome.

I like the packaging a lot, but I already own the Armada toy so I'll be passing on this one. It's still good though for those who don't already own Unicron.

all of the universe boxart of looking to the side with a look of 'dull surprise' is starting to kill me. i'm almost dying to see what ironhide's looks like. it would be great if some kind of being with some form of comedic comic strip on the internet could put even more effort into mocking it, or devote a comic or blog entry to it *coughdavidwilliscough*

I guess they had to put some symbol on the packaging and since Unicron is evil they went with a 'con insignia.

That's what I was gonna ask. So, Unicron has chosen to side with the 'Cons? Sadly, since he's not changed... from what I can tell and has been stated... from his Armada colors, this one is a pass.

Now, if they release Primus in a new scheme, I'm all over it. My Primus is being over powered by Energon and Armada Unicron.
