It's not "Fools of towel play"? Damn.

Huh, I always thought it was "tools of power play".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Maybe like how Megaempress and her 4 Guards showed up so many male Cybertrons and Destrons. *snerk*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

Maybe as a female EDC officer who actually kicks his ass for a change.

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 05:11 AM)

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Sakamoto or Sipher's art?

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

Yeah, it was really sad that they didn't survive in any of the endings. Eaten by Unicron every time.

alright so here's the skinny.
My daughter who is in kindergarden brought home an invitation to a kids birthday party that is in her class.
I called and RSVPd to it because she "really really really really REALLY!!!" wanted to go to the party. I asked the kids mother what kind of toys he like and she said that I didn't need to bring anything.
My budget is pretty tight however being the big geek who can't disappoint a kid on his birthday.
I asked my daughter what he likes. She told me he's always wearing TF, and spongebob shirts.
So me being the hardcore tf collector I am, I think I can hook the kid up.
Now here is where I need the help.
The kid is turning 6, and I've got plenty of in box stuff that is just eating space.
here is the question.
Do you think he'd like an
A 2007 movie allspark blue Deluxe new Cammero BumbleBee (target exclusive I picked up for a song on clearance) or B the reveal the shield redco of classic's BumbleBee?
C go to walmart and grab 1 autobot and 1 decpitcon legends class figure off the shelve and give them to him. (So if he has a brother will be able to 'fight' each other)

I'm leaning towards that reveal the shield BumbleBee, but I want an opinion other than my own here. The party is at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow
thanks guys

I voted Classics BB. it's a good solid mold that wont come apart on a kid, its durable, AND it is easy enough to Transform that they shouldn't have an issue doing it, which can be a problem with movie toys sometimes, and it has that "better than the movie" stuff classic TF look.

ZacWilliam, Really the first 2 are whats important but 3 isn't a bad thing either IMO.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

I'm afraid I don't know the kids folks quite that well.
I'd offer up the 2007 movie redco of ultra red alert if I did

Given his age and the current complexity of TF toys, I'd say a few Animated Activators, if you can still score em.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

RTS Bumblebee. For the reasons already stated. I almost went with the 2 legends, but as I kid I think I would have wanted one regular sized guy over 2 small guys whi have bigger versions.

RtS Bumblebee is both easier to transform and less likely to be a mold he's already got.

I would recommend a PCC 5-pack. Target has them on sale for $10!

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

lol I can't believe I forgot that part in the time it took me to write something... boy I must have been way to multitasking, Sorry Rat.

icon-fire.gif that aside -> lol yeah just put aside the suggested kidnapping icon-primal.gif

as a collector I'd suggest away from a Bumblebee of any sort, because I'm tired of seeing him everywhere... but as somebody who remembers being six, the one I can see everywhere is the one I want.

So i vote rts Bee...

I voter two legends because then right off the bat he's got two robots to fight each other. Get Prime and Megatron if you can.
