IDW G1 has been a victim of it's own success.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 01:23 AM)

Though frankly I prefer IDW Ratchet with a Marvel-style head rather than his current Prime-style head.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 July 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Like dual Fall of Cybertron-IDW G1 designs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:55 PM)

And it at least shows that they're allowed to repurpose designs from other universes.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 10:54 PM)

Dark Cybertron was around when things showing up in toyline and comic together became a really major thing.

@  Waspinator : (28 July 2016 - 10:51 PM)

Given that that Starscream says "Armada Starscream" on his box, I assume the toy was meant to be Armada Starscream and was just re-purposed by IDW to be a body for their Starscream.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (28 July 2016 - 09:24 PM)

Hey, Bass X0. It's nice to see somene else paying attention to the distinctions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:44 PM)

Also, Albino Prime that isn't Magnus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 06:43 PM)

They made a toy that was IDW Starscream with an entirely Armada look.

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:53 PM)

Other than a change of gimmicks and physical appearance (i.e. Deluxe Galvatron), Hasbro generally keeps a familiar color scheme for the Generations toys. It may not always be perfect or completely accurate, but I can't think of a Generations toy that looks completely different in color scheme to how they should do. A quick l;ook around my room and I can't see anyone who is completely the wrong color scheme. I'd say the FoC Combaticons and Wreckers are the wrong colors, but they're not supposed to be the G1 characters so they get a pass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 July 2016 - 05:45 PM)

The comics aren't beholden to previous G1 material, and the toyline doesn't have a strict need to follow the comics either so...

@  Bass X0 : (28 July 2016 - 05:40 PM)

And yet the comics are not damned. This is G1 Sentinel Prime, not Animated or Movie Sentinel Prime and so he should look the part to how G1 Sentinel Prime has been portrayed so far. An Animated Sentinel Prime color scheme can come later. I don't recall how important the G1 legacy of Primes (Convoys) is in Japan or even if they have Nova Prime, Sentinel Prime, and previous Primes. So maybe Takara will paint him as Animated Sentinel just because its what Japanese fans are most familiar with.  Sentinel Prime didn't have to have been a pre-use of the Astrotrain mold, indeed why even choose G1 Sentinel Prime at all after how long neglecting him?

@  OrionPax44 : (28 July 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Same here unluckiness. I bought him mostly for the Fire Guts look of the Titan Master.

@  unluckiness : (28 July 2016 - 08:38 AM)

I kinda like Fire Guts Sentinel Prime TBH. Though, I think the gray would have looked better as black.

@  Boomhauer : (28 July 2016 - 08:36 AM)

I would've been fine with the Bayformers 3 Sentinel colors, he looked slick.

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 July 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Same as Animated Sentinel Prime then, I bet he's a Functionist fundamentalist too!

@  Rycochet : (28 July 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Sentinel Prime's colour scheme is awful, they should have painted him in his animated deco, comics be damned.

@  Dracula : (28 July 2016 - 07:38 AM)

He's also orange

@  Paladin : (28 July 2016 - 07:23 AM)

kinda not enjoying my TR Sentinel Prime now that someone summed up his personality as "Make Cybertron Great Again."

@  OrionPax44 : (27 July 2016 - 04:51 PM)

Sounds pretty kinky.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 July 2016 - 04:17 PM)

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 12:34 PM)

Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

Just to let everyone know, I went to pay for FansProject Stormbomb/Bombshell and I saw that the last wave of 2011 Generations was just put up for preorder at BigBadToyStore.

It's $40 for both, if anyone is interested. Given how fast preorders tend to go, I figured I'd give everyone the heads up.

Probably worth it just to save the hassle and waiting and possibly having to pay $40 for ONE later on.

Went ahead and jumped on it here as well, it's hard telling if finding these later is going to be an issue or not. $20 each isn't bad at all.

As of checking just now, there are 91 preorders for the set of 2 available. The trick is to add them into your cart, put in some high number (I did 99), then see how many it will actually let you keep to potentially buy once you update the cart. So I doubt it will be sold out in the morning, but you don't have to pay until they're actually available anyway. They charge your credit card once the toys come into stock. icon-hotrod.gif

Kup's EVERYWHERE here now in Walmart, Target, and TRU. Frankly all the Generations figures that once were impossible to get even online. That's why I'm not worrying anymore.

Just labeled by Hasbro as the last wave of 2011, not the last wave of Generations, period, so I expect the line will continue next year most likely. Heck, considering it survived alongside the DoTM stuff, and Warpath, Thundercracker, Wheeljack, etc. are getting more common...

Glad we did not have a repeat of Universe and '09, thank goodness. If they had found a way to put the G1 guys in RtS into Generations, they probably would have been easier to find.

91 at 10:27 (Jeremy's post) to 41 at 12:33. Half of the preorders placed in two hours.

As for the name, I just put 'Junkion' because that's what BBTS was calling Junkheap in the listing.

It's pretty sad how things have gotten in regard to buying things online. There's no time to think about making a purchase, to wait until payday, etc... You almost have to buy entirely on impulse. Half of the time, BBTS and HasbroToyShop sell out of the more desired items within a few hours. Amazon's Unicron was sold out in an hour and a half (though it was restocked a few times over the course of a few days).

I was kicking myself a little for jumping on the preorder for Warpath, after I saw them start showing up at every Target I went to and it was too late to cancel my order. At least he's one of my favorite new figures in awhile, has that great feel to him of easy transformation and playable robot mode that the original Classics nailed, so I do feel like I got my money's worth.

At 2 of each per case I'm not really that worried about finding them. I still preordered one set just in case, but I'm hoping to find them at WalMart before BBTS gets them. It's been working out that way lately with GI Joe and Marvel Universe. Then I can cancel the preorder to let someone else have them.

Yep, sold out already. I guess 91 sounded like a lot, but I don't know the scale they're working with. Again, it's a preorder though. It's not really an impulse buy in this situation because your card isn't going to be charged until November anyway.

Since I have a pile of loot coming every month or two anyway, I figure $20 each plus whatever small amount that adds to my shipping is worth it. I'd be paying $12 or more each after tax, plus having to hunt around, wait, and worry about maybe not finding them at retail anyway. Sky Shadow especially is definitely important enough to me to have a slightly more expensive guarantee of getting him. Yeah, there's the possibility of finding them cheaper, but we're not talking about actual expensive numbers here.
