A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

I keep having to say this to folks: fandoms are voluntary. Enjoy in any ratio or methodology that you choose.

Ride the wave, dude. Put the toys away for a while...take 'em back out again later and you mind find your interest rekindled

it happens to everyone. Sometimes interests are cyclical.

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

@  Dracula : (26 May 2016 - 03:36 PM)

YEAH GOT MY ORDER NOTICE TOO

I know this isn't exactly what we talked about, but what kind of stand are you using for Sunstorm?

I hate (read:love) looking at your Alternity pictures. It makes me want to spend money I know I should not spend. icon-waspy.gif They look pretty poseable from what I see here, but I was wondering if there were any downsides to them. Anything about them you don't like?

From the original thread regarding Ratchet:

QUOTE(Powered Convoy @ Jan 31 2010, 11:35 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Really nice gallery OM! I'm liking the look of this figure more than the original Ratchet. Do you prefer one to the other?

Randy



Thanks, Randy! Well, I like the original simply because it evokes the essence of all the character was for most of the show. This version has a younger, happier look to it. I should have included a side by side face shot to show the difference, but it is pretty visible here. This version is neat because it looks younger and stronger, with the complete crest on the head etc. I also really like the articulation, as he is super posable. The transformation is fun and decently challenging for this size and line.

Ultimately, I like them both for different reasons, but I would fidget with this one more due to novelty. I sure hope we get Ironhide down the road, because he would look great as this mold. The rear bumper/shock paddles make for a neat weapon. Before I finish, the EMP from Lockdown fits way better on this mold than the original.


Now, while I am at it, Randy and I have been backlogged, and we have a bit of catching up to do on older molds. I realize many of you may have them already, but we are going to do our best to catch up while we wait for the new stuff to start showing up. So, here is:

Animated Deluxe Waspinator

Makes me sad we did not get more beasts from Animated (there is never enough), especially a Buzzsaw (You listening, Hasbro?)

The stand is a clear robot stand from HLJ. I don't remember exactly which one. I need to dig it out again, as I haven't used it in a while.

Alternity is really combines most of the best elements from the car Transformers in Binaltech, Movie 2007, and Universe 2008 in one. I love this line and it is by far my favorite at the moment. As much as I love Universe, figures like Sunstreaker and Sideswipe (which are some of my favorites) just look cheap compared to Alternity Convoy & Megatron.

I don't have any issues with my figures, except my silver Megatron's ankle has gotten real loose, but I think that's just bad luck on mine (and this is months and months after I got him).

They really are excellent. icon-hotrod.gif

Does BB have the same metallic paint that Cliffy seems to have? It is hard to tell.

No, BB doesn't have that metallic paint. His is a light yellow. It's a very nice color, but I didn't manage to photograph it to well. icon-screamer.gif

ROFT Human Alliance Barricade with Frenzy!





I like Human Alliance Barricade a lot, but the hips are a disappointment. They are really limited because they are stuck at an angle. Otherwise, this is a beautiful figure with great features. Having Frenzy as a chest gunner looks awesome. icon-ironhide.gif

That comparison shot is an excellent example to show how improved the Human Alliance figure is compared to the original deluxe. icon-ironhide.gif I really love the HA figure.

Thanks! I like him a lot as well. Like everyone has been saying, due to his nature, I think he fits great with Classics, in spite of some of his design being movie aesthetic. I also love how they designed his inner thighs to rotate as you rotate the lower legs, he has a hook that won't break, hands that aren't posed inward and a really nice EMP generator. This is a great toy. icon-ironhide.gif

OK, we've been on a little hiatus with real life things taking precedence, but here are 2 of the newest galleries. Randy has some awesome stuff we have not posted recently, and I am hoping he will add that in here soon as well.

Generations Deluxe Cybertronian Bumblebee
Generations Deluxe Cybertronian Optimus Prime

So awesome. icon-ironhide.gif




Anyhow, coming up are the rest of the Generations Wave 1 figures, Seaspray and the PCC figures as well. icon-ironhide.gif

Enjoy.
