And it at least shows that they're allowed to repurpose designs from other universes.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Dark Cybertron was around when things showing up in toyline and comic together became a really major thing.

@  Waspinator : (28 July 2016 - 10:51 PM)

Given that that Starscream says "Armada Starscream" on his box, I assume the toy was meant to be Armada Starscream and was just re-purposed by IDW to be a body for their Starscream.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 July 2016 - 09:24 PM)

Hey, Bass X0. It's nice to see somene else paying attention to the distinctions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:44 PM)

Also, Albino Prime that isn't Magnus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:43 PM)

They made a toy that was IDW Starscream with an entirely Armada look.

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:53 PM)

Other than a change of gimmicks and physical appearance (i.e. Deluxe Galvatron), Hasbro generally keeps a familiar color scheme for the Generations toys. It may not always be perfect or completely accurate, but I can't think of a Generations toy that looks completely different in color scheme to how they should do. A quick l;ook around my room and I can't see anyone who is completely the wrong color scheme. I'd say the FoC Combaticons and Wreckers are the wrong colors, but they're not supposed to be the G1 characters so they get a pass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 05:45 PM)

The comics aren't beholden to previous G1 material, and the toyline doesn't have a strict need to follow the comics either so...

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:40 PM)

And yet the comics are not damned. This is G1 Sentinel Prime, not Animated or Movie Sentinel Prime and so he should look the part to how G1 Sentinel Prime has been portrayed so far. An Animated Sentinel Prime color scheme can come later. I don't recall how important the G1 legacy of Primes (Convoys) is in Japan or even if they have Nova Prime, Sentinel Prime, and previous Primes. So maybe Takara will paint him as Animated Sentinel just because its what Japanese fans are most familiar with.  Sentinel Prime didn't have to have been a pre-use of the Astrotrain mold, indeed why even choose G1 Sentinel Prime at all after how long neglecting him?

@  OrionPax44 : (28 July 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Same here unluckiness. I bought him mostly for the Fire Guts look of the Titan Master.

@  unluckiness : (28 July 2016 - 08:38 AM)

I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 12:34 PM)

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

Not even close.

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

Just left target and they were seting up a huge display of all the current transformers product. All the new goldbox figures, everything from legends on up to leader. They even had the latest wave of human alliance with Jazz and Lenox. All first wave Generations figure as well as every Powercore combiner available. Just left with Drift, Thrust, and Seaspray. I got pics of the display just need to figure out how to post them from my droid.

I plugged in the DPCIs for the 2-packs while I was there, and they didn't have them in yet, either. Guess they just built it with what they had.

Just checked out my Target on my lunch hour. No display yet, but they had cleared out a space for it. Actually, the only even remotely transformers related items in the entire toy section were two discounted Bumblebee helmets.

I'm so happy I cut my collecting down to classics style figures only. Had this happened two years ago it would have been a bad day for my wallet, hundreds of dollers worth of new figures.

Anyone know if the DPCI for HA Jazz is different from the previous HA figures? And if so, what is it?

Trying to use Target's site to see if they're stocked at the local Targets yet before I drive around in weekend traffic. Site's not cooperating, unfortunately. Thanks, tho.

Almost everything has hit in my store as well (Columbus, IN), but just the main action figure aisle display, no endcap. Nice to note that all the deluxes are still at $9.99, and voyagers and PCCs at $19.99. Didn't see the new Human Alliance stuff, or any of the exclusives, but I finally got my Generations. So I'd say pretty much everyone can count on finding something at Target. icon-hotrod.gif

By the way, the TF area in the action figure area is quite large, probably between 1/4 and 1/3 of one of the sides of the aisle.

They had the 2 packs and everything else (but the 3 pack), including Jazz, at Columbia MD. TONS of Classics Deluxes - finally enough for everyone.

As soon as I read this I dashed to target (5 miles away....but so is everything else in this town) and lo and be hold I struck gold....boxes!!! Picked up Seaspray, Hubcap, and Brimstone since I've been spending a lot lately. Payday is Thursdy and I'll get Smolder and Bombshock then. Squuueee my last month of constant checking is over!

Haven't even opened the buggers yet, but I have a feeling I'll have loads of downtime during "The Producers" rehearsal tonight.
