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.

@  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?

@  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.

Not sure if this is old news, but I didn't see anything on it: Down the page, the site has been updated with bigger pictures of the Optimus set.


Looks nice so far, really curious how it'll be with color matching. Only concerned about the arm extensions, a few images aren't very flattering for them.

As of now I'm still planning on skipping this one. I'm just not thrilled with that version of Prime so not sure if I want to spend the money to upgrade him. Looks nice though.

I'd prefer a longer trailer with a better base mode, and none of the somewhat lame power-suit pieces. I have no interest in the extended arms and legs, or, well, any of it really.

There's a reason why I never transform Cyberverse Action Trailer Megatron into his third mode.

I see this as somewhat similar to Fansproject's upgrade for Classics Rodimus (though I don't own that one and don't plan to own this either). I do think it looks neat.

I think I see C-clip rods on him.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

The upgrades look friggin awesome. But it's onto an OK mold, for which an upgrade is not really necessary nor desirable.

I'm glad this will allow me to have a worthy-looking Autobot leader for my G2 Classics shelf, but it's unfortunate we have to go to these lengths to correct him not being a Voyager to begin with. I'm not really nuts about the robot mode "power suit" stuff, but I'm used to having "kinda sorta neat" optional extra stuff in addition to the main armor pieces from buying City Commander and Protector. Ignoring those extra pieces most of the time isn't some greatly offensive thing to me. icon-hotrod.gif

I wonder if they'll make one to match the United figure. That is provided he has any parts to match the gray (like the waist).

I hope it matches both the RTS and United Optimus, as a lot of the people who will spring for an upgrade kit like this are also the kind of people who already coughed up the extra dough for the United version of the figure.

Now if only they had some add-ons to change him from an International to, oh... A Century class, maybe. And a highway truck instead of a wannabe daycab.

Still, looks like a stubby city trailer too. Ah, well. And, just to point out: It's actually pretty common for trailers to not match the truck. Only big fleets or small style-focused owner-ops have a consistent art style that spreads from cab to trailer.

Still gonna get it, but might burn money on that custom Luna first. Hm...

Yeah I imagine. I hated that figure until I got the United one. Amazing what nicer colors, color layout, and an improvement to the mold can make.
