i'm getting "Our Amazon Picks" on the sidebar; haven't seen that before...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 August 2016 - 09:41 AM)

The top banner seems to disappear and reappear for me.

@  Arazyr : (31 August 2016 - 09:24 AM)

Whenever I want to go to BBTS or TFS sites I make sure to use the banner ads here. 8^)

@  Dracula : (31 August 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Speaking of ads, I have adblock turned off for allspark and I've noticed the top banner ad on the forums tends to be broken. Today I don't see it at all. Might just be me though.

@  Kalidor : (31 August 2016 - 01:28 AM)

Clicking on ads and visiting sponsor links helps keep the lights on, if you want a cheap and easy way to help.

Whoop I'm back and been a way for a while. But I'm back and I'm going to try to stay with the forum more often. Also to anyone interesed I just made a update to my Sprite topic http://www.allspark....shop/?p=3325815

Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 09:26 PM)

Seriously, Shout Factory's Beast Wars Season 2 and 3 4 DVD set was at Dollar General for 2.95

@  Robowang : (27 August 2016 - 09:15 PM)

Whaaaaaaaaaat

Looks nice to me, but nothing will top Razorclaw. The use of yellow eyes is nice.

I would actually buy that. Still, I'd prefer a new mold for Leo Prime.

Even though I already have Leobreaker, Razorclaw, and Lio Convoy, the toy looks far more attractive in this deco and I'd probably be pretty tempted to buy it. If it is real though, I can't help but feel it's a pretty redundant release. Though the gold waist parts and tail remind me an awful lot of Leobreaker, making me slightly suspicious, a lot of the rest of the toy looks like actual plastic colors that the mold hasn't been done in so I'm not convinced it's a custom.

I don't see anything that explicitly makes it look like a custom. The colors break down like they should on that mold, and zooming in I don't see any evidence of paint. The apparently molded in gold head flap doesn't perfectly match the painted mane, which wouldn't make sense if they were painted by hand.

The weird gold midsection seems like a high price to pay for a tail/whip that matches the Legends toy. I'm not compelled to rebuy this mold.

Very nice. I've always found the primary colors of Lio Convoy to be quite striking, and they translate well to this mold. If this does see release, I'd be all over it in a heartbeat. The gold midsection is a bit unfortunate, but a little paint of my own will fix that just fine.

I'm very excited for this one.

looks like the leo prime head with some parts swapped from leobreaker. the claws, midsection, and tail are leobreaker's. this has to be a custom

but i'd totally buy this repaint. i wanted a lio convoy, but he was only in the legends class and then they went with that gawdy prime color scheme for leo prime, even though the bio referenced lio convoy

It's kind of weird that they'd go to the trouble of only painting some of the plastic (and flawlessly, giving it the appearance of unpainted plastic) over in white. Why leave parts of it uncustomized?

I think the bigger incentive is matching Lio Convoy's gold tail.

Wow, that's definitely more in line with what I wanted from the first release (Which I skipped, and then never saw again) to look like. Definitely would be worth my while, despite having Razorclaw (Soon!) and the two 'Breakers, for yet another unique head sculpt alone.

Not to mention the use of the Autobot symbol as opposed to the Maximal symbol.

So either this is offical, or it has to be a "Logically marketable" custom.
