She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:35 PM)

Yeah, I felt Arrow was the weakest entry... but after least season I kind of got turned off the show, and haven't watched any of the current season.

@  Jalaguy : (03 December 2016 - 05:34 PM)

It was good, but would've been better if Arrow hadn't co-opted its portion to do an relatively pointless anniversary episode.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 December 2016 - 05:31 PM)

Haven't seen any of the DC shows.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2016 - 05:24 PM)

How did y'all feel about this week's CW DC shows crossover? I thought it was great and reminiscent of comic books!

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 08:25 AM)

I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:29 PM)

...and now that I've sat home a short bit I realize I completely forgot to look for Ross, TJ MAXX or Marshalls in the area. Damn.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 09:20 PM)

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:17 PM)

Just found RiD Warriors Bisk and Ratchet, plus TR Hot Rod, while hunting. It was a good night.

"You hugin' people..."

@  Strafe : (02 December 2016 - 07:36 PM)

I liked that one, too. I'm not a fan of the guy at all, but "A Few Good Men" is still one of my all-time favorite movies. He's fantastic as Lt. Daniel Kaffee.

@  Kalidor : (02 December 2016 - 06:24 PM)

Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 11:36 PM)

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

@  Kalidor : (01 December 2016 - 11:24 PM)

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 10:01 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

I finally got around to picking up Classics Onslaught today, and his siren repeats appropriately when the button is held down.

For all two of you who don't already have him or those of you with upsetting variant-completism, this may be of some interest. Sorry if this has been reported already.

I wonder if there's any way I can fix that problem myself... I just can't see myself spending 40$ Canadian on the same toy just for a longer siren sound. Not unless Hasbro announces a recall or something.

LV:

Is there any way to tell by looking at the package if it's the corrected version? I've already got mine, and I don't mind the chirp (if the traffic won't move, it's their problem.) It would be fun to know if the one I bought off Amazon for the toy drive is fixed or not.

As the gentlemen above say: press the button through thw window.

There's no callout or anything. I'm sure it's the same packaging as the original one, but I don't actually have the initial batch with which to compare.

DUH!!!! Just buy the new corrected one, then put the old screwed up version in the box & return it. That's what I did.

I can't believe how many people are dumb enough to say something like "I can't see myself buying a second Onslaught." Nobody has to buy 2 Onslaughts, just buy the good one & take the bad one back. It's not our fault they shipped out broken toys. Let the store send them back to Hasbro.

I remember my G1 Roadbuster's arm snapped off the 1st time I tried to transform him. We took it back to the store. IT WAS BROKEN! Your Onslaught is BROKEN! Take it back & get one that works. Double DUH!!!!

that's where you are wrong....it ain't broken, it's sound clip doesn't have a loop programmed into the soundchip. and besides the toy AIN'T BROKEN, so right back to the shelf it will go and some poor kid will buy it and they are stuck with the defective onslaught....and that ain't right

That's not really toy swapping as we usually define it. I mean, the toy WAS technically defective, and you're only returning a toy that we all gladly bought for months. And it's not as if someone can't test the damn thing in the package when they see it in the store, same as any other Onslaught.

This thread raises some interesting ethical questions.

As a happy medium, you might either intentionally break the defective toy and return it, or return it as pristine as possible with a note explaining the return should the store be unethical and put it back on the shelf and have someone else buy it.

Hopefully he returned it as he would a normal broken item though, and told the store it was broken when he returned it. If he just returned it "as new" and bought a new one, and it gets put back on the shelf...

Well if you tell them your toy had a defect they aren't supposed to put it back one the shelf.

Like I've returned several tfs to my local TRU and I've NEVER seen them on the shelf again because I told them there was a problem, but there are places that just don't care. Which is why we see energon downshifts in a movie blackout box.

And while I don't support it, what rip says isn't toy swapping really. Its the same exact toy with one difference most kids wouldn't even know about, but like I said I'd never do it, and it still feels a little underhanded.

I don't know... I like my one time chirp on Onslaught before he gives out a salvo of machinegun fire. It makes you think he's cruel enough to mockingly give a chirp before he fires and plows traffic out of the way when battling Autobot scum.

It does, a little, but I still take Walky's point. You wouldn't be profiting on the deal, you end up with the same toy you already had for the same price. You're not denying anyone an Onslaught, because they can still buy that same toy and judge for themselves if the defective noise makes a difference to them. The store's not being denied anything either, they've got the same item for sale when all is said and done.

The only really unfair scenario is if someone who was completely ignorant about the defect--but, had he known, would have opted for the new version--happens to buy a defective return and discovers the difference later, and is unable or unwilling to return it himself.
