@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:56 PM)

Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

Yeeaaahhhh... San Diego Comicon Exclusives... Our 100,000,000th Movie Optimus figure (yawn) and that weak looking Deluxe-size TF:Prime Optimus in fancy packaging. Granted the packaging sounds creatively neat on both, but the figures themselves are REALLY boring IMO.

San Diego is the time to go all out with fan aimed weird and awesome stuff you wouldn't see at retail. Two more slightly tweeked Primes miss the point and lacks any excitement at all. G.I.Joe's getting much better, much fan geekier Comicon Exclusives this year. Weak Showing TF team.


ZacWilliam, really disappointed in these, but they DO open up funds to try and get that Joe Screamer/Cobra Comander set.

If that's an SDCC "premium" version of Prime Prime with silvery paint instead of dull grey plastic, I'm into it.

The Nemesis Prime and Rodimus repaints we got? Yes.

Suited unmasked James with Mideval Warrior ancestor and /or Pimp Colored Destro? Yes.

Podium CC or CC with a Starscream Joe Jet? Yes.

Big G1 Reissue Cassette sets? Yes.

What do we get this year? Two Prime color variants among tons flooding the stores for the movie push. I repeat: Yawn.


ZacWilliam, the Joe team and Mattel are presenting SDCC exclusives as they should be.

So.

A version of a headliner character and his ancestor with the same name, that same headliner character in a funky costume, a very well known Transformer, and the evil version of Optimus Prime x2.

Oh yeah. And Soundwave, whose been reissued a hundred million times.

That's not uniquely fannish. It's using the well known characters. Uniquely fannish is stuff like what you get from Botcon. This is geeky, but geeky in the broadest sense of the word possible. Just like these 2 Primes.

Again, the difference is those were unique versions of those popular characters with niche geek appeal that you would never get at regular retail.

These on the other hand are two of the same guy whose receiving a billion figures right now in just slightly tweaked colors that would and could 100% fit in on any retail shelf. I don't so much mind Prime as an Exclusive, but a borring generic Prime that isn't much different from retail is a waste, and TWO boring generic Primes in the same year?

The only thing that feels at all special about these is the packaging. That seems to be where all the creativity went. But I'm a Toy collector not a packaging collector. If the toy is dull a package that does a little dance and lights your birthday candle isn't making up for it, and thats what these are.


ZacWilliam, would have been less disappointed if only one of the exclusives was a paint tweaked Prime, but both? Blah.

what I'm saying is, the SDCC exclusives speak to a broader appeal than, say, Botcon stuff. These two Primes are following that pattern. And really, I think more elaborate, better paint detailed versions of toys is something special that you can't get at retail.

Oh, I don't expect anything Botcon obscure. But not incredibly boring would be nice.

See G.I.Joe or Matel's offerings for an example of SDCC exclusives worth waiting in line for.


ZacWilliam, there's ceretainly a difference between Botcon Geeky and SDCC Geeky, but slightly recolored Primes is lowballing any standard IMO.

And no, man, I can't consider Nemesis Prime as being much different. It's Prime in black. I LIKE Nemesis Prime and I have to admit that. It's painfully easy to conceptualize.

Well different standards. Generally I have found past TF exclusives interesting and cool and find these super dull and uninteresting. You're welcome to differ.

If you saw the packaging for these guys, "boring" would be the farthest thing from your mind. You're only getting half the story.
