I'm seeing a Dell ad right now

@  Varnon : (10 December 2016 - 05:44 PM)

I see the adds fine... but oh lort, what did I click on to make ladychinesedate and muslimmatrimonial ads come up?

@  ShadowMan024 : (10 December 2016 - 05:39 PM)

Why am I bringing that up? Because it also probably echoes how Marvel feels about the DC cinematic universe.

@  Rycochet : (10 December 2016 - 06:00 AM)

I always find the subscriber numbers given by places like Facebook and Youtube highly dubious. He may have 50 million accounts subscribing to his videos, but how many of those actually watch, how many are unique people and not a 13 year old's 16 different youtube accounts and so on and so forth.

Only reason I know that name is due to my 13 year old would keep talking about him. He can go by by for all I care.

@  Rycochet : (09 December 2016 - 12:16 PM)

I doubt it's to help anyone but himself, by pointing out he can and will possibly totally delete his channel and getting a lot of buzz online for it, I'm sure he's hoping some other internet company or media dinosaur is going to throw money around to get him on board.

@  The Doctor Who : (09 December 2016 - 12:11 PM)

I mean, YouTube does have some really awful and content-creator-unfriendly policies, but, uh, I don't see what that would do to help...

@  Benbot : (09 December 2016 - 11:54 AM)

To protest how Youtube promotes certain videos and channels over others. Because...he doesn't get enough views...?

Why would he delete a source of income for basically doing nothing?

@  Dracula : (09 December 2016 - 11:43 AM)

He's a guy that does let's plays, and he claimed he'd delete his channel in protest of YouTube if he reached...what, 50M subscribers?

Here's the Anakin remold of the Class I Y-Wing mold that TFW reported on a few days back. The rereleased brown Droid tank and Darth Maul are on there, too, and there's also a Obi-Wan remold of the Class I Actis Jedi Starfighter (maroon colors, not blue).

There's also a retool of Obi-Wan's Starfighter into Anakin that isn't listed with the Transformers.

Ah, cool. I hadn't seen that one. I may actually pick that one up (I don't much like the colors on the other two versions of the mold).

I'm still wondering where that Darth Maul from Toy Fair 2011 is. He was the one that initially got me interested in this size class, but we've seen nothing of him since then.

These are already on the shelfs in the UK as I picked up that Obi Wan the other day. Fantastic Headsculpt (I get a Junkion vibe) but terrible legs and transformation. Just cant seem to stop his arms from popping off. I hope this new size class continues and improves though as they are quite fun for their size.

Who were the original releases? Im guessing that Anakin and Obi Wan have swapped molds, but who originally transformed into the Y-Wing?

A Clone Trooper.

And yeah the Ep 3 Jedi Fighter is pretty terrible. The Ep 2 Starfighter is cool though.

I got the Vader version of the Actis mold back in October, and while it's nowhere near as good as the Y-Wing, it's still decently fun and has a great deco, and it's certainly has a better use of kibble than the older, larger Actis mold. However, if anyone just has to have Anakin as himself, I'd recommend getting this new Y-Wing version, as that's a great little mold (also, for anyone unfamiliar with it, don't forget that the HTS pics of the Anakin version are mistransformed - the Y-wings nose gun section split to form a skirt of sorts and allow his hips to move fully forward). However, that Aethersprite remold looks pretty good too, though it seems to use the same head mold as the Actis version.

I saw these at my local Walmart a couple of hours ago.



Question, the pictures of Y-Wing Anakin don't show his elbows very well. But, how is this mold's arm articulation?

It's ok. if you keep the arm straight, the elbow forward movement is limited to about a 140 degree or so angle. However, his forearms also bend inward at the elbow, making for a good two-handed rifle carrying pose for the clone version. The shoulders are somewhat limited ball joints.

And Hardbot, we've not seen any news on more Marvel TFs in over a year (unfortunately), and there were some toys that never got released, like the Punisher, blue Human Torch, the new-molds Iron Man/War Machine combiner 2-pack, etc. I believe the last new marvel TFs was the obscure glow-in-the-dark Iron Man wave that only seemed to show up at Ross and whatnot (I saw the War Machine repaint of the car IM mold there last summer).

Still need a few Y-wing Clone trooper basics and the Green Jedi Starfighter. I rather like the Obi-Wan from Wave 1.

They're perfect for making Cyberverse Cybertronians.

And they do actually plug into Star Destroyer Vader with those weird tabs they all have, though it took me a bit to find the connection point.

Not that it really accomplishes anything interesting, but planned interaction is always sort of neat.
