Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

@  Paladin : (09 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

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.

MP Ultramagnus concept, based on ver.2 Convoy with G1 Ultramugnus parts.


Make of it what you will. Looks like at least one designer is considering how they'd make the figure (by slapping some G1 Magnus trailer parts on the new MP Convoy).

Also it appears that Convoy's truck mode is to scale with the Alternity this time as opposed to the Binaltech (roughly).

Cool! I guess releasing the new Convoy mold in white as Ultra Magnus is inevitable. But if he came straight with his trailer that combines into his super mode, it would make the remakes of Masterpiece figures in smaller scale worth it.

Yeah I agree that it looks a little rough. 10 years ago this would have been amazing, but in comparison to City Commander that looks like a pile of crap. How about less G1 slavishness and more updated aesthetics and modern engineering?

I'm sure if they did ever make one, it'd be more complex than having a cut-up G1 Magnus pieces slapped on the new Masterpiece Convoy. icon-fire.gif

With other lines I would agree, but this is Masterpiece we're talking about.
Its very purpose is to be a slavish to G1 as possible.

It's the 25+ year old Magnus armor photoshopped to a high end collectors toy. Ofcourse it looks like crap.

I think QH is missing the fact that this is just a rough concept. Sure the general idea will be the same, but I'm confident IF they made one it'd be better in execution than what we're seeing here. Hopefully his blue would be darker too, I want one in cartoon colors!

I'd rather have a Masterpiece Ultra Magnus that takes hints from the Titaniums figure and transforms directly from vehicle to armored robot. Mind you, I realize that's never going to happen while they can just recolor a Prime body and (maybe) add new parts.

I have no interest in the new MP Prime since he's too big to look right with the CHUGS. But I'd definately want any armored up version like Magnus or PM Prime.


-ZacWilliam, the armored up forms get more leeway from me for being a bit oversized...

If vehicle mode is roughly in scale with Alternity, then the Masterpiece Optimus is actually too small for CHUGS. icon-waspy.gif

Robot mode is all that matters to me as far as scale and at MP Grimlock/Rodimus height he's WAY too tall to fit with the CHUGGERS. Sadly.


-ZacWilliam, it feels a bit odd to be asking for a MP to be smaller, but there ya go. If I wanted a MP Prime not in scale with the Chugs, well, I've already got that, don't I. icon-hotrod.gif

Alternity cars are 1/32, and while Classics Autobot Cars are non-scale, they seem to generally conform to being about 1/36. If MP10 does scale correctly to Alternity cars, Zac's probably right about it being on the large side to work with Classics. Of course, to my eye that comparison photo makes Prime's vehicle mode look a little small relative to that Alternity, so I'm actually not any help at all. icon-waspy.gif

I'm sure MP Optimus is definitely in scale with the likes of Ultra Silverbolt and Onslaught.

The most recent tweet indicates that fan response will determine if it gets made or not.

I kinda have the feeling it will be since if they don't make it a 3rd party will, and thus Takara would lose out on possible sales.

I wonder how much of a price increase Magnus would be if any.
Prime seems to come with a lot of extra stuff, but is all that stuff equal to a transforming trailer?

I postulated in an earlier thread that making a smaller MP Convoy opens the door for them to do armored modes. The new exhorbitant price point likely is testing the waters. Is this really just G1 parts photoshopped onto MP10? They seem different, making me hope that an actual release wouldn't look as bad as the photo.

If MP10 comes with Spike that fits in the cab, maybe MP Ultra Magnus would come with Sparkplug.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

And what's going on with MP10's head in that photo? Looks like it was replaced with a marble. I like how they flip the legs to make them look different. Looking at the knee joint on MP10, it appears to move equally in both directions.
