Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

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.

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.

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.

You realize these are the Japanese equivalent of a Cracker Jack toy, right?

...when was the last time you bought a box of Cracker Jack?

(I wasn't complaining! I just think it's weird how they sculpt details onto these things and then tell you to cover it all up with stickers.)

I have a suspicion you might be right, Thy, and that's just a mock up using a picture of the G1 toy (the pictures down the side are of the box are the previous wave of kits). He'll be more than just blue, though - they come molded in three colours (I'd guess dark blue, light blue and red?) - but these things do have an *insane* amount of stickers.

It might be dark blue/light blue/red if they want a light blue Hot Spot, but I suspect we'll be getting blue/red/grey with a dark blue Hot Spot. Deathsaurus has a lot more grey than light blue, and Prime doesn't have any light blue at all.

How's the plastic and paint quality on these?


What paint? icon-waspy.gif

They're cheap, snap together model kits that come with candy.

I haven't bought any of these, but if they're anything like the Super Sentai candy toys, they're at least molded from sturdy ABS plastic, so they won't be super fragile or anything.

They're molded in up to three basic colours, with a ton of stickers for detailing.


Cheap if you live in Japan, you mean... icon-screamer.gif

I love the Kabaya kits, but the G1 ones for example usually cost more then the actual G1 toy in a MISB state...

I never had one of these, only KOs (I have an Action Master Rollout for example), so - how 'soft' is the plastic? And how large are these guys? Because this Defensor is something I'd defintely like to get my hands on. icon-hotrod.gif

Plastic is good. not "soft". The figures are usually between Legend and Scout. So... around Cyberverse Commander.

And you can usually find these new ones for $10 or less. Even going back to Wave 1.

For those asking what these kits are like, I got the Kabaya Ultra Magnus kit a year or so back, and wrote about it here. I imagine the basic concepts are similar with these guys.

It should be emphasized that the Gaiacross components (and presumably the Gaia Defensor components) are tiny; smaller and certainly less complex than a Legion.

Which is why they'll work with Hot Spot, but I'm just saying.

Now this is interesting. Deathsaurus appears to come with both Eagle and Tiger animals and Hot Spot can store Defensor's chestplate on his legs. I can't wait to see bigger pictures though, because I have no idea what the long, thin things are, on Hot Spot, that look like giant antenna clipped to his upper arms. I have the original G1 Toy, and I can assure you, it never had them. Unless they're some kind of bizarre homage to his repair base mode.

I think the antennae from his repair base were supposed to be clipped to his shoulders on the original toy too. But its a look that never caught on.

Well, I wouldn't mind Dethsaurus, since he's the Decepticon leader from Victory, so I might end up getting all three, and just not assembing Prime. Seems a bit of a waste, but maybe I can find someone who wants a mini WFC Optimus and does't care for the breastformer.
