Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

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.

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.
