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.

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

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

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

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!

@  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?

Transformers whose toys look better than the animation model

A lot of fans seem to prefer the animation models of certain G1 charcters to their toys. The main examples being Ironhide, Ratchet, Swindle, Galvatron, Reflector and the Seekers.

To this end, most of us clamour for the likes of the Classics Seekers and Jetfire to mention a few. Trust me, I love my Encore Ironhide and Ratchet since I got the custom clip on heads and the reissue Anime Bumblebee from a few years back.

However, to me some Transformers actually look better in toy form. My examples are as follows:

Menasor

Motormaster (I hate his bland, boring animation model's head)

Dead End

Dragstrip (I'm actually 50/0 on this one)

Ultra Magnus

Hot Spot

High Brow

So what do you guys think?

All the G1 Autobot Targetmasters looked a hell of a lot better than their animation models. Particularly Pointblank.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Animated Safeguard, just the combined robot mode.

The Rebirth models or the Headmaster models?

Rebirth models, since the Headmaster models basically are the toys. But the difference right there kind of makes my point.

95% of the Animated toy line (there's the obvious ugly ones like Blitzwing and Cybertronian Megatron)

Total agreement there. (Althought, I might notch it a bit back from 95%.) The animation models weren't all that specific on some of their points & didn't really depend on really being 3D. The toys did a good job of representing the characters to the best of their ability, while also fixing the shortcomings of the animation model.

So yeah, in general, the toys were better than the show models.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.
