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).

@  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.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

Toys like Treadshot and Magnus are creating difficulty for me as an archivist. Normally, I say when a BotCon toy has a remolded head, but these heads that have never been seen at retail before (yet apparently weren't designed by the FP folks) create a new category. And my current attempt at a "footnote" for Magnus really doesn't work for the far-right column of the datasheet.

Darn you, FP! icon-arcee.gif
It's kind of "Darn you Hasbro" though! Hasbro putting more than one head option on the sprue this consistently is a rather new thing.

I certainly don't dispute that. Still, FP chose these molds, and not some others.

Not that I'm really upset at FP for this, of course.

Instead of calling it a "new head," how about a "previously unreleased head"? After all, you didn't say G2 Breakdown had a "new paintscheme," because it was the same paintscheme that had always been planned but was previously unreleased.

Oooo I always wondered who made that sheet as I've referred to it often. Anyway, I'm somewhat surprised hasbro let fb use those heads since they haven't used them yet themselves.

Unlike Bludgeon and Thunderwing (and presumably Octopunch), Stranglehold is one Pretender where I hope none of his shell's design elements are incorporated into a new figure. I get all the half-nekkid man-toys I need from He-Man.


C'mon, if the other two have Shell elements worked into their update then Stranglehold should too!


I know, lets merge shell and robot traits! Shell body with Robot Rhino head! He can have a vendetta against turtles too!


No! Rhino body with Burt Reynolds head! I demand it.

I'm not entirely sure how to respond to that, as you don't seem to be referencing anything that I've actually done on the page over the past few years. Why would I reference a "new paintscheme" (for any figures) anyway?

(To say nothing of the fact that the page covers three distinct G2 Breakdowns. But it's clear enough that you mean the first)

When I set that part of the page up, it was intended to be a reflection of the extra effort (beyond that already required just to have a new figure made in the first place) that went into certain toys. Not just remolded heads (the most common, certainly), but other newly-created parts, as well.

Well, then unless Ultra Magnus uses a completely new head, there is no extra effort (as the head was already engineered, one assumes) that went into the figure.

Exactly my thoughts. And if I emphasize the word "for" in the heading "Any remolding/retooling done for exclusive?" (as it appears on the relevant column of the datasheet), it's fairly obvious that no such remolding for the exclusive has been done.

Thanks for helping me do what I should have done already. Will make the updates (and reflect Treadshot) before the night is out.

Oh I'm loving Treadshot! I'd consider trying to get one after Botcon but seeing how he's not hated like Gigastorm and Soundwave are I'm sure I won't be able to get one for a decent price.

My six year old puts up a more intelligent argument than that. Different people see different colors all the time, eyes are different. Some see blue others purple, I don't see it as a big deal either way.
