A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

I might buy some bot shots for walmarts prices. At least for my kid, or maybe just the core characters. They look tiny enough to still fit on my crowded displays.

I don't remember Battle Beasts being that small. Of course, I was much smaller then.

Does RID Cliffjumper's cart art emphasize wrist blasters that only the FE mold actually had? Ouch.

Swing and a miss for me today, only saw a pile of RiD Bumblebee.

Are all the Botshots translucent? Or are there chase figures? Or is just sentinel translucent?

It looks like only some of them are translucent. I hadn't realized Sentinel would be one of them until I saw this thread.

Sentinel is the wave 1 "superbot". He's transparent and I think he has more oomph in the power numbers.

I'm curious as to why it mentions Hasbro Canada on the back. Is that normal for TF products bought in the US?

Also this appears to be an official site of some sort but I have no code, so I don't know what it does.

the file is named char_Prime_and_Bumblebee_2.png . Maybe it's Nemesis vs. Cliffjumper (though I think it looks the most like the Kre-O Sentinel)

I just want to see one standing next to a Battle Beast or Mini-Con. If they're BB sized, I'm gonna get the lot of 'em. Smaller... then at least a few.

It's neat, and I can't decide what to think of it basically being Transformers Bakugan (even down to the ~$5/per price point).

Saw the first wave of Bot Shots (I always read that as Butt Shots) at TRU. The only one I didn't grab was Sentinel Prime as I didn't like the fact that he was all translucent with just his face and eyes painted. The others were hard to resist, but I feel they are a dollar too expensive at $5.

Yeah, I'd have a hard time resisting them at $3.49 - 3.99 somehow it feels easier at $4.99-$5.99.
