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.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

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.

Henkei Thundercracker: Of high quality and the lack of remolds.

So, I just picked up a Henkei Thundercracker, and was pleasantly surprised to find that he had absolutely no loose joints, and the launchers fit perfectly in his arms. He's perfect. Neat!

Then I realized he doesn't have the common remolds - no extra line across the air intakes and no rounded mounts on the wings. Has anybody seen this? I was under the impression that all of these used the other mold, and that part of that caused the launchers not to fit.

For what it's worth the Skywarp I picked up at the same time uses the remold, but is also still pretty good quality wise.

And also, before anybody asks, yes I am sure it's not a KO.

Never heard of this. Is it possible you got the 2nd batch, as when Gentei Thrust & Dirge were made available, so were more Thundercrackers?

Look at the date on the inside of his leg, what is the date (it should be A - L, first 12 letters of the alphabet representing the month of production, and then followed by 4 digits, for the day and year)?

Well, here's a thing. He doesn't have one.

His copyright stamp has © 2006 whereas Skywarp has © 2008.

Yeah he used the older version of the mold, which at the time was the better of the two. Very interesting.

I'd actually buy another Henkei Thundercracker if I would be assured it was the new one.

Strange he doesn't have the date stamp on the inside of his lower legs.

Might I ask where or whom you bought it from? icon-hotrod.gif

I bought it sealed from Mandarake, a collector shop in Japan.

Can you order from them if you're not located in Japan/visiting their shop?

Oh, right. Since you can technically search for about anything on their store, the first thing they ask is if you want to filter adult content.
