btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

You used MUNITION CHIPS in TOYS??

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 08:02 AM)

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Yeah glad I ain't a bug or a bowwow. Hahaha

@  Lisbon Virgo : (07 February 2016 - 02:38 PM)

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Paladin : (07 February 2016 - 08:21 AM)

TripleDent Gum, will make you smile...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@  siccoyote : (06 February 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Everyone's gotta die from something

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 06:51 PM)

My dad survived it twice and we both have a strong hate towards it for taking someone from us. IMy sympathies to your family.

@  Plokatron : (06 February 2016 - 05:14 PM)

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

@  Smokey : (06 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:46 PM)

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:07 PM)

Got my copy of the Allspark Almanac. Time to go waste time some more! Hope my copy of HoS get here next week. Trainsformers! More steam to meet your eye!!! No no don't look directly into the cylinders!!!! You fool!!!

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.

Transformers toy launches are a major event here in the Philippines. Our local Transformers organization, CybertronPhilippines, helps the local toy distributer with promotions on eight different malls every weekend for three months.

We had our first Dark of the Moon toy launch last weekend May 14 and 15, 2011. We got the usual stage games for kids, twenty TF cosplayers walking around and new fiberglass statues displayed around the event area. The toy displays were removed this year but they'll be around for the movie promotions.

I'm in charge of the unofficial cosplay so I'm putting pics of them up first, hehe. Some suits were used in previous events but there are new ones too. We were going for Movie characters so my transforming G1 Brawn and TFA Prowl had to be retired for ... transforming Movie Wheelie! Movie Scorponok, Arcee and Shockwave weren't finished in time so we had to double up on Primes, Megatrons and Bumblebees.

Adding the four transforming suits. We had Movie Wheelie, Sideswipe and the twins Skids and Mudflap. It was gratifying when the people taking pictures were all surprised when we transform icon-hotrod.gif The pics above are the vehicle modes WITHOUT the cosplayers inside them so, yeah, they're a bit neater than when they're manned (all panels fit together and all that). The last two pics (only Skids and Wheelie) are shots of the suits being inhabited.

My Wheelie suit pretty much has the RC truck on my back so there's really no transformation involved :/ But I did add wheels on my arms and legs so I could really roll icon-hotrod.gif I brought along a jump rope and people towed me around the mall area, haha icon-hotrod.gif

We did have some G1 statues made icon-hotrod.gif

The fiberglass statues surrounded the event area but some were damaged or not finished yet. The G1 Soundwave statue was ready but lost a thumb and had to be removed. G1 Grimlock in dino mode and Hot Rod weren't used because of lack of spacet. The Movie Prime statue was 25 feet tall, taller than our 20 foot Movie Prime cosplay suit. The cabs of Prime and Megatron vehicle modes were made too.

(yeah, that's me with the pics)

The previous Transformers related 'gift with purchase' would be Autobot and Decepticon masks, rubber and metal keychains and the usual posters. The new GWPs are Autobot and Decepticon paperweights, dogtags, eco bags (Autobot on one side and Decepticon on the other) and special deco boxes made out to look like Prime's trailer. We have a distribution table for 'rare' TF toys to stop scalpers from buying multiple figures of the same kind. Roadbuster was disappearing off the pegs so he was included along with Prime+Comettor, Megatron and the Legends three pack.






Oh, the toy launch was in SM Makati and I'll update this if there's new stuff that appears in the succeeding promotions icon-hotrod.gif
