@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:07 PM)

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

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 : (05 February 2016 - 01:34 AM)

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 05:55 PM)

I had it at one point. Then I went to public school and it got misplaced.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

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

Very true.

@  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?

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 12:51 PM)

Gamera is really neat! Gamera is filled with meat! We'll be eating Gamera!

@  wonko the sane? : (01 February 2016 - 09:44 AM)

Nope! But in fairness, I was pretty drunk at the time.

@  Paladin : (01 February 2016 - 09:44 AM)

...does NOBODY remember "Ghostbusters 2?!"

@  wonko the sane? : (01 February 2016 - 09:42 AM)

Oh, yeah, the primaries. Yup, that's a thing that's happening. But it won't end the world till new shmuck is elected, and even then it depends on who.

@  Touch My Thighs : (01 February 2016 - 09:41 AM)

Looks like that American preliminary election thing is happening. I don't really get it, something about Iowa and Couscous.

@  MEDdMI : (01 February 2016 - 08:07 AM)

what, again?

@  Paladin : (01 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

QUOTE
People who purchase the Japanese Animated Encyclopedia (available next month) will be entitled to purchase an exclusive Animated Optimus Prime (Elite Guard Ver.) figure.

The 112 page encyclopedia will cost 1,680 yen and is available for order at Books Rakuten, Amazon JP and Red Mercury.

Each purchase of the book entitles the buyer to a maximum of 2 pieces of the exclusive figure.

Each figure will cost 4,900 yen. Orders of two figures will be sold at the slightly discounted price of 9,200 yen.

Based on the silhouette of the figure on the cover, it will be a repaint of the voyager class Prime figure with Wingblade parts.

This is much like Emergency Green G1 Ratchet, Skids & Screech, Gentei Ghost Starscream, and Gentei Electro Disruptor Ligier before him. They all had to have a book purchased in order to buy them.

Randy

Edit: EZ Collection Elite Guard Optimus (the maroon, dark gray, and gold one) to give us an impression of how he might look.

Wow, that's a surprisingly hefty figure compared to past precedent, if the silhouette is true.

I mean, I have no interest in that Elite Guard Prime deco or the Wingblade parts so I probably won't be getting this, but that is one impressive jump up from a Deluxe.

Yeah, I really like the scheme they used so it'll be nice to see it on a larger figure.

This makes me want to get the Prowl and Bumblebee now.

Huh. I want to see actual pictures of that thing. I wasn't going to buy a Japanese Wingblade in hopes of the Hasbro one eventually coming out, but this one might get me depending on the color scheme.

I would hope for a Powered Convoy colored repaint at some point on any Prime, other than a movie one that is...

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

I wouldn't count on a Hasbro one at this point.

Plus the Hasbro one would use (in my opinion) the crappy Deluxe Earth mode figure while the Takara one uses the much better (in my opinion) Voyager mold.

I'm more interested in the book, personally.

Maybe it'll have some extra bits that'll be contrary to the Almanac or just "neat".

Or Hell, maybe TakaraTomy will use THIS as their means to connect Animated to the Movies since they don't appear to actually be doing it in the cartoon like that marketing manager said they would.

Eh, I like the black and red, but the gold is placed a little oddly. And, I'm with Smitty that the Elite Guard symbol is in a funny spot. If it's going to be that small, putting it high between the windows seems like a no-brainer.
