beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Mayhem Hangouts is Go! I repeat the loonies are converging on Google! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

I'm not seeing Optimus Maximus as Optimus Prime, I'm seeing Nexus Maximus (The Transformer, not the adult toy... okay BOTH Nexus Maximus' are toys for adults, NEVER MIND).





I'm a little saddened by the idea that WFC/Generations Grimlock may be a Deluxe. He needs to be a Voyager minimum.

A nice Deluxe Grimlock would be the one bright spot for me if the next iteration of Generations is all-Fall all the time. I never liked the Classics Deluxe, and I don't need another large one since I have the MP version.

I'd definitely prefer a voyager, since that would make him appropriately larger than the average Autobot, but not necessarily huge or anything. Unfortunately, we don't get a lot of voyagers lately, outside of the movie and cartoon lines. I really love the extra room it gives them to play around and do bigger guys justice when both the deluxe and voyager sizes are being used regularly.

-ZacWilliam, anyway, my Downeaster Metroplex aside, I morn with you. There was a time where really big toys could be new really big characters. Then there was a time where they would be the leaders, but the leaders didn't have to be Prime or Megatron. Now those days might be gone, I hope not for good...

You know, I'm not a fan of Optimus Prime to begin with. I don't like the character and I usually don't like the toys. This had everything going against it for me, but damned if that image doesn't actually peak my interest significantly. Need more images, but I like what I see so far.

You don't actually know what that means, do you.

You're right, this is more a case of "Market researched to all hell".

I'm pretty sure everything is market researched to all hell.

What I assume you mean is that Hasbro, entering into new territory (the last guy who specifically turned into a base/playset as his primary altmode in stateside release was Fortress Maximus*, unless you want to count Arachid and Orcanoch) has coupled this baseformer to a popular character to minimize the risk. If you're surprised then I'm not sure what to say.

Hey, there's an idea; they could have made this baseformer a giant character that's "coupled to" a popular one (maybe Optimus Prime could turn into Fortress Maximus's head, or something like that), instead of being a giant version of Optimus Prime. (Assuming that's what this is: it could also be a giant mecha piloted by a normal-sized Optimus Prime.)

OKay, so they say there are 8 (deluxe) Generations toys, 1 is WFC Jazz. So who would you want to see in the other 7 Deluxe molds?

I'd like to see:

2. WFC Starscream (in the future we can see many Seeker repaints)
3. WFC Ironhide (in the future can be repainted as Ratchet)
4. WFC Shockwave
5. Classic/WFC Arcee (a pink car!)
6. Classic Cosmos
7. Classic Gears (why not?)
8. Classic Blitzwing

I'd be rather happy with that line up actually, except Gears but I can't think of anyone to replace him at the moment, so like you said why not.

Maybe an Insecticon, and the top on my list is Shockwave, he really should get a new toy and hopefully DotM will help that.
