Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

Aw, you ruined it.

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

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)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  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.

Always glad to see stuff like this before the toys come out, to cement my purchase decisions.

Megatron looks so pretty, I can almost forgive that awful, obtrusive gimmick arm of his. The mold is good enough otherwise to forgive it, at least until we get a better G2 Megatron.

Rodimus I'm actually a little less sold on needing in the longrun. I like the different approach, but would have much rather had that magenta version so many of us have been hoping for. Wonder if they managed to get a yellow plastic spoiler this time around.

Warpath

And those pics of Megatron vs United Laser Prime made me keep my Megs preorder. (which I was starting to reconsider...)

EDIT: Crap.
I just looked at the comparison shots for Warpath and I decided I kind of really liked it's colors. So I re-preordered it. (I'm spending forty dollars for the same toy in slightly different colors... le sigh.)
This whole "re-preordering things I previously canceled" is becoming a trend, lol.

I still think the white Special Edition version of Megatron looks the best. Which is the only one I own.

Think its kinda weird for a Rodimus Prime toy to be repainted from a Hot Rod (Rodimus) toy. Don't like the Mini-Cons attached in either mode, they're just too big IMO.

You've got to hand it to Takara-Tomy, matching the red plastic of G1 Warpath is a nice touch, but that by itself isn't really enough to make me care to shell out the money on it. Plus he lost his little "inside joke" numbers on the side of the tank. More different paint apps would have been nice, but I guess lighter eyes or something would have made him more technically inaccurate.

Still kind of feeling like Rodimus isn't worth it. :-\

Rodimus should have always had that Mini-Con port. I've always advocated adding at last one Mini-Con port to mold so you can do this. Seems like a simple thing they should do to molds.

While it's does add a touch of added playability, I'm finding it nothing but visually detrimental to the toy. None of the Mini-Cons actually look good while resting on that peg. And without the Mini-Cons, the peg just sits there rather obtrusively.

Obviously, that's just my opinion. But I should also say that I was looking forward to seeing how it would work when it was first revealed. Like I said it does add playability, so I thought it might be cool. But Rodimus just doesn't have the size to pull it off; all the Minicons just look terribly huge on him.

Yeah, I'll be fully ignoring the peg. I mean come on. A giant gun on the good that prevents sight from inside the car is stupid, even if he doesn't even need a driver. And it doesn't look good either.

Meeeh, especially in these pics, the Rodimus Prime repaint isn't doing it for me. I get what they were going for, but ultimately his colors read as "another Hot Rod variant" rather than "Hot Rod powered up into a leader."

Like someone else suggested here, they might have been better off doing him up in Magenta or something and billing him as "Targetmaster Rodimus," which he basically is with the retool.

I like Thunderwing's Colors, but I don't know if he's worth the upgrade.

It's not like Night and day like the Tank Megatron was, so that makes the choice harder.


The thing I do like about the Hosbro colors is that it has this sickly quality to it that gives me the impression that he's been corrupted by the power of the matrix.

I was looking at the Warpath gallery and thought it was an easy pass until they show the pic of them side by side. Yes, I miss the inside joke code words in the deco, but I really prefer the shade of red on the United.

I really like that head on G2 Megatron, but being that I already own the Special Edition and the normal classics version, it's a pass.

I'm extremely happy that it looks like the only difference in the Windchargers is that the United has an autobot symbol.

Thanks for the links guys (including the correction). icon-ironhide.gif

Warpath, though only really a light red instead of brown is a big improvement. I never liked the brown of the Generations version and knew eventually TakaraTomy would put him in better colors. I do wish something was done with his eyes though.

I like Thunderwing's colors better too (again he's just a pallet swap). Which is surprising as I'd think I'd like the comic inspired colors better, but the light purple, gray, and black go really well with the colors on his torso. He's not overly green.

Windcharger is nearly identical save for his symbol and perhaps slight changes in his light gray plastic and gray paint.

I like the Rodimus, but the face and hands are a bit too light. Even lighter than the Masterpiece's is and it reminds me of the paint they used on the Mega SCF figures (which isn't necessarily a good thing).

Megatron is quite good and at least as good as the Special Edition G1 colored one and loads better than the green version.

there were no Warpaths and only one of the 2-pack left, but plenty Rodimii.
