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

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

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.

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

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.

They are in their own wave.
Hotspot is part of Kabaya Wave 5 (along with Deathsaurus and WFC Optimus)
The other Protectobots are in the Gaia Guardian wave.
Seems both waves were released simultaneously.

The plane as a shield in super-combined mode is a little forced, but other than that it's a nice combined mode. A shame we only get these cool takes on combiners in Kabaya figures. Obviously the resources to try these kinds of ideas aren't there for real toys, but you can't help but think how cool a Protectobots re-issue with two extra components would be.

It looks like Deathsaurus himself comes with a "solid" outer chestplate for him to wear, and at the same time there is an entirely different-molded transforming Tigerbreast chestplate / animal partner packed in with one of the other figures that Deathy can wear too. So if you just buy Deathsaurus by his lonesome he'd at least look complete.

Yeah, looking at the boxes, the tiger comes with Optimus, while the hawk comes with Hotspot.

Man, this is the first new "real" transforming Deathsaurus toy that people will care about (RIDMegs need not apply) in 20 years. It's enough to make you think there could ever be a chance for a reissue or update.


I wish that were the case, bt interest hasn't been too great among the general Japanese public in late G1 reissues, historically speaking.

I had been waffling on getting these, but finally decided to take the plunge after seeing pictures. I think hlj.com is the cheapest option? You end up getting way more than you need, but you can sell the extras on Ebay or whatever.

The Defensor kit certainly is interesting, I'll say that.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Deathsaurus looks wonderful, but is simply too complex for his size and construction method. Some of the plastic tolerances don't work quite right - the head doesn't really snap into place but just sits in the hole between his shoulders, and the dragon tail is too small to have sufficient torque to completely clip together, as its own hinge seems to work against it. It's also more of a partsformer than I had expected, even at this size: you have to take off the wings and the arms, and Eaglebreast must be disassembled in order to "wear" him.

But damn, does it look good.

Apart from the pop-off head, I thought Deathsaurus was great. The parts-forming was pretty minor compared to the clusterhug that is WFC Optimus. And adding in the semi-transforming breast plates from the other sets made him really fun. Only other complaint is that the transforming Tiger Breaster's handle blocks Deathsaurus' head in robot mode a bit.

My Deathsaurus didn't have any plastic tolerance problems, but my WFC Prime stressed horribly at the back of the knees. WFC Prime was pretty awful overall.

I got Hot Spot too, and he's awesome, even better than Deathsaurus--mostly transforms, with minor additional parts-forming. The combiner pieces being able to snap onto all modes is great too.

I have Gaia Guardian too, but I've only assembled two bots so far: Blades and Streetwise. So far, looking awesome in all modes and combined as limbs for Hot Spot. And no parts-forming--total transformation for those two. 'Scramble Power' is intact. All arms can become limbs and vice versa. Highly recommend this set so far!
