Sharp rocks at the bottom?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:28 PM)

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 11:19 PM)

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

@  Locoman : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Well, you got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

Why does she even HAVE that lever?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 08:00 PM)

+1 for Locoman!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Give each of them an Armada Sideswipe.

@  Locoman : (06 December 2016 - 06:45 PM)

Turn them into fleas, harmless, little fleas, and then put that flea in a box, and then put that box inside of another box, and then mail that box to yourself, and when it arrives... SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 06:13 PM)

Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 02:11 PM)

just tryin to save you some misery mate :)

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 04:37 AM)

Well not any more I'm not.:(

@  Telly : (05 December 2016 - 07:59 PM)

@blackmax-cold leads to snow. snow leads to delayed shipments. delayed shipments lead to a paranoid blackmax. are you SURE you want the cold??

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.

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 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.
