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)

You're dethhhhpicable, 2016.

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.

@  LioConvoy : (02 February 2016 - 05:29 PM)

You can't ask what happened to something that never existed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Oh, so that's what happened to my faith in humanity.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 February 2016 - 12:53 PM)

I'm always dealing with stuff that stinks and is past the end of its life

@  lastmaximal : (02 February 2016 - 08:28 AM)

"Boy, glad I'm not him!" does sound like a familiar refrain for the workplace.

@  Paladin : (02 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

nothing sets the tone for a work day like driving past a dead skunk at 7am...

@  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!

@  BillBarclay : (01 February 2016 - 11:28 AM)

mind you that Lego Firehouse looks awesome

@  DeltaSeeker : (01 February 2016 - 09:56 AM)

Valentines Day. Bummer.

@  BillBarclay : (01 February 2016 - 09:45 AM)

i do.....Vigo! you are like the buzzing of flies to him!

@  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)

only 13 days left before the world ends...

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 February 2016 - 02:47 AM)

It gets ten thousand hours to the soul.

@  Boomhauer : (31 January 2016 - 09:28 PM)

It runs on uranium.

@  Nutjob R/T : (31 January 2016 - 01:14 PM)

Right, anybody got the old NECA Big Daddy Bouncer with the LED eyes? Anybody know the battery size needed?

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 January 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Friends help you move, real friends help you bury the neighbors under their own porch after they've seen too much.

@  Liege : (31 January 2016 - 11:23 AM)

Invite them to join in. This either results in fun times or them giving you a wide berth. Both win wins in my book.

This is something that has been on my mind for a while having been inspired by BBTS Piranacon (who seems to be selling quite well from what I've seen); a collector aimed line of reissues of fan favorite toys/characters sold exclusively online through HTS or another online store (such as BBTS). However unlike reissues of the past wouldn't be limited to early G1 and could be voted for by fans out of a selection provided by Hasbro (kind of like the Marvel Legends vote-a-figure polls). The figures would also be 'remastered', correcting any faults that were apparent the first time or any missing paint apps (think the Star Convoy Reissue a few years back). The selected figure would then be made to order though a pre-order system for each customer (in order to prevent overstocking and secondary market scalping and the tired excuse of 'we won't do this again because the first try didn't sell').

So I guess what I want to know is, if such a toyline existed in a way as described above, what toys would you want selected to be part of Transformers Archives? I have three choices atm but before that let's make a rule for this thread: NO NEGATIVITY. The key word here is hypothetical; I don't want to hear any 'Hasbro would never do this' or 'this is a dumb idea'. Just pick some toys you'd want to see made available again and explain why.

So here are my choices:

Transmetal Megatron. Heck of a toy back in the day and possibly the most iconic form of Beast Wars Megatron. I'm sure lots of fans would like to see this guy reissued due to the horrible GPS problems that have plagued the original version of this toy. My 'remastered' version of this toy would include the non-GPS susceptible plastic that the Japanese Version seemed to use and instead of vacuum metallizing the 'transmetal' parts, use a pearlescent paint (like the Japanese Animated toys). Perhaps a face remolding to remove the crazy grrrr face, replacing it with something more in character like the BW10th version.

Armada Tidal Wave: I'd have it reissued in cartoon-accurate/Micron Legend version colours. Perhaps retool the legs to give it articulated knees if possible.

G2 Cyberjet six-pack: It probably ouldn't be cost-effective to do these guys individually, so lets put all three molds together in their G2 Decepticon and Autobot decos as a versus pack! I'm sure a lot of people would want this just for Hooligan. There was nothing really wrong with these guys the first time, I'd just make sure that the mold was in good condition and that the joints were still tight before redoing them.

And Liege, you're words really have had an effect on me. It made me relise I've shouldn't care about what others think of me, I should only care about what I think of myself.

Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.

Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

A Transmetal Primal to go with that Megatron to start.

And then all of the Repaint Ultra Magnus's that I don't have yet. Starting with Energon Ultra Magnus. Then maybe the classics two pack with Skywarp after that.

Edit: I'd actually like a lot of the Beast Wars figures redone with character-accurate face sculpts.
