"Beast Wars anniversary"? Highly dubious.

beast wars dicketeth anniversary

@  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.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

I was recently reading Susp's well-crafted review of the recent Power Core Combiners Huffer & Caliburst two-pack and noticed that the pictures that he had posted showed a toy with a slight but very noticeable difference from mine. (Review here).

Those who have acquired PCC Huffer, this question: Does your Huffer sport a hood that is colored a brighter shade of orange than the orange used on the rest of the figure (like his) or does your Huffer's hood match the shade of orange used on the rest of the figure (like mine)?

Pics of your Huffer figures are appreciated, but not necessary, and a mention of which country you acquired the figure in as well as when you might have bought it would be very helpful. I'm just trying to piece together whether this variance was a standard running change (I acquired my Huffer about 3 months after Susp got his), an international-market variant (I bought mine in Canada) or a simple error (either version).

Thanks!

My Huffer's orange is homogeneous, and I'm in the US.
It was probably from the first patch that showed up in my area sometime last month.

My orange has a very distinctive bright orange hood that doesn't even try to match the rest of him.

I got him from TRU.com.

Near as I can tell, all of the initial release of Huffers in the US have the mismatched orange hood. My observation suggests this was corrected relatively quickly, though. What Huffer's I've seen in stores recently almost all show the matching hood as best I can tell.

Same here. I just thought it was an odd deco quirk. I might start checking out the Huffers in stock locally a little more closely since I'm having an issue with the locking tab on the cab/shoulders.

Weird, I like the extra splash of bright color that the mismatched orange hood provides. It always seemed deliberate to me, since it wasn't even close to the plastic color, and the character was originally bright orange. Seems a little too dull with the mustard colored hood.

Yeah, same. The molds colorscheme is much more boring in the 'corrected' configuration.
