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

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 11:07 PM)

Got my copy of the Allspark Almanac. Time to go waste time some more! Hope my copy of HoS get here next week. Trainsformers! More steam to meet your eye!!! No no don't look directly into the cylinders!!!! You fool!!!

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.

@  Smokey : (05 February 2016 - 01:34 AM)

You're dethhhhpicable, 2016.

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 05:55 PM)

I had it at one point. Then I went to public school and it got misplaced.

nothing sets the tone for a work day like driving past a dead skunk at 7am...

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  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?

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 12:51 PM)

Gamera is really neat! Gamera is filled with meat! We'll be eating Gamera!

@  wonko the sane? : (01 February 2016 - 09:44 AM)

Nope! But in fairness, I was pretty drunk at the time.

@  Paladin : (01 February 2016 - 09:44 AM)

...does NOBODY remember "Ghostbusters 2?!"

@  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.

@  MEDdMI : (01 February 2016 - 08:07 AM)

what, again?

@  Paladin : (01 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

only 13 days left before the world ends...

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 February 2016 - 02:47 AM)

It gets ten thousand hours to the soul.

@  Boomhauer : (31 January 2016 - 09:28 PM)

It runs on uranium.

@  Nutjob R/T : (31 January 2016 - 01:14 PM)

Right, anybody got the old NECA Big Daddy Bouncer with the LED eyes? Anybody know the battery size needed?

Much to my surprise, the Nato-Bot Roadbuster Upgrade parts are back on the market.

http://www.shapeways...hops/thebotshop

Unfortunately, you have to paint them yourself (and I assume that assembly will be required) and the price is a might steep, but hey, for those of us who missed out the first time, this is a good opportunity, yes?

I wonder if the end result will produce a sharper product. Cause the original is not up to par with third party standards.

Cool for those that missed it but as far as I'm concerned Universe Roadbuster isn't up to par with homage standards.

(...still want that scheme on Cyb.Def Red Alert.)

...so it could look less like a proper homage to the character?

I mean, it would look cool. I'm not disputing that. I just don't see where it gets us any closer to geewunnyness than what we currently have. icon-hotrod.gif

Do you want the list? icon-arcee.gif

Hulking Ultra body instead of a dainty deluxe.

A weapon at least as tall as he is instead of some dinky shoulder cannons and a pocketknife.

Less humanoid face.

It wouldn't be perfect no but it'd be a damn sight closer then what we have.

While the idea of Roadbuster being able to pound the THE HAMMER on enemies is nice, I don't really feel it

Sure Cyb. Def. Red Alert is big and all, but... He's really only got two weapons: His multitool, and his giant missile. Hotshot, on the other hand, is full of missiles and has a shank. I can see Roadbuster shanking some poor Decepticon

I'll give you the size.

The "weapon at least as tall as he is" is an enormous shoulder-mounted ICBM. It's not like we're talking about a kickass rifle here.

The face is arguable IMO, since it's still a face (albeit recessed into a helmet) and Roadbuster colors would actually serve to make it more apparent.

Don't get me wrong, if they made it and it looked good I'd probably boot the Universe version in a heartbeat... but I'm not seeing where it's so much better that I actively want it. Outside of the size, I'm seeing a lateral shift here.

Even just 6 months ago I'd have been delighted by this, but Renderform is planning to release a Universe Roadbuster upgrade kit including a new head, guns and chest piece, most likely for cheaper and in far better quality, so I'll be waiting for that instead.

I'm already more interested in that T B, a new Chest would go that tiny bit farther for me to not look at it and say... "oh hi pumpkin patch Hotshot."

did they ever give out the design for the new piece?

Nope, just the new head concepts.

I'm assuming he's a bit busy with the large number of orders for the Goldbug heads, convention exclusives and those clear weapons sets.
