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.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  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).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

Eh, I dunno. I kinda dig the Roadblock myself, and both Beachhead and Kamakura are good custom fodder. With a new head and some new accessories, Kamakura can make a nice VvV-inspired Night Creeper, while Beachhead is so basic, the sky is essentially the limit.

I just don't understand that reasoning, since that requires them to put cost into development, sculpting, and the molds for the brick drivers. That's a lot of money that mix-and-matching doesn't require, since it only needs one of those steps.

Actual parts production is the issue. Even with all the parts already tooled, a figure with 30ish parts costs more to make than a new figure with 7ish parts.

Good news everyone!

With Saturday Nights plans de-railed by possible food poisoning (damn you Burger King and your chicken sandwiches!), I stayed home to dine on crackers rather than pizza. So in the morning ran to the east-side Wal-mart to get some soup (and scout for any 'new Phyrexia' packs/intro decks/fat-packs/ect that might be hanging about... want my elsh norn dammit!!!!), and lo and behold, they'd gotten in Joes for the first time since they clearanced out the movie figs.

Someone had sniped Sci-fi and one of the zombies, but I did pick up the rest, including law (who I was on the fance about).

He might as well be at one per case. I've seen everyone else multiple times at this point, but I've yet to see SS in the wild.

One per case in a single wave, with everyone else getting held over/added to in the next wave, and that wave being the one getting stocked at many places...

I got a wave 4 case from BBTS... I keep telling myself I don't need him... there have been at least five BEST STORM SHADOW EVARs since 2007, so we'll probably get an even better one soon enough... and this particular mold is getting at least two Retaliation repaints, along with most of the accessories being reused...

You misunderstand. Storm Shadow's in the wave 3 case, and as such is the only figure I wasn't able to get. I'm trying to talk myself out of buying another case of guys I already have to get him... or in the alternative, paying as much as a case just to get him.

The red ninja is going to be Slice, because... well, really now.

The Storm Shadow I will probably make into an approximation of VvV Slice, but call Slash, because I don't need two guys named Slice and I have too damn many red ninjas anyway.

The Snake Eyes will... eh.

Same situation with my Walmart, seems Wallyworld might be giving Joe some support leading up the movie (that, or simply slotted the existing line to "save space" for the movie stuff in May).

Either way, I might be seeing new Joes locally again (and not at a collector/drug store prices!)...right after getting all I wanted via Walgreens and TRU.com... icon-megs.gif
Hell, knowing Walmart, they won't even get any Joes (or if they do, it will be one or two piddly cases) until they start build up for Retaliation.
