I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

On first glance, the Protectobot APC and Tank seem weird. But that's only because we're used to G1. "Protect" doesn't necessarily mean rescue vehicles. You can protect things with armored vehicles too!

Woo, I really like the Destron team. Great colors there.
The protectobots are ok. It's weird having a jet, tank thing, and half-track thing on a rescue team.
The other repaints look ok, but nothing special there.

Interesting that they switched the Minicons entirely around. Especially since Darkstream can't hold Razorbeam in axe mode. Really. I've tried.

Loving putting Caliburst with Searchlight tho. Great combo there.

I love the Destrons, but the Protectobots are kinda awkward. I would have preffered the arm jet and the jeep to go with them, but I suspect Hasbro wanted to mix up the limbs a bit more.

But are they a rescue team. Sure, the G1 dudes were all vehicles... but what in the name 'Protectobots' forces them to be rescue? They're protectors. Tanks serve that role.

I loved the Destron Team at BotCon and I love them even more now. It helps that I think Huffer is the best PCC figure.

It does look like the Caliburst minicon goes better with the Backwind scout. Least, IMO.

The Huffer mold looks amazing in the Dark Convoy colors. Destrons are a must buy.

I didn't know they were going to swap the commanders and 5-pack leaders. Makes it easier to skip the Skyburst recolor as he's the weakest of Wave 1 IMO.

I'm liking this line more and more. It's great to have so much "fiddle value" in such small toys.

Ah, so I guess Bombshock's repaint ISN'T Bludgeon influenced like I thought from the slides at Botcon.

Not really into any of these new colors, so I'm glad I already picked up Bombshock. At least they can split up the Minicons and drones in any way they want so everything isn't completely a straight up repaint.

I do find it disturbing that 3/5 of the Protectobots are vehicles of destruction.

All of these look nice, but I'm perfectly happy with the versions I already own. Gotta save that dough for the Dinobots!
