Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

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

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

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

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

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

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  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.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

This looks one of the better attempts at making Nightbird.
Still, being a non-transforming figure, getting it isn't very high on my list.

Indeed. Looks pretty sharp, but zero interest here.

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

I might have been interested in it as a "Decepticon" if they had given it a transformation.

I really would like a Nightbird figure, as her episode was always one of my favorites as a kid. I haven't jumped at any of the other attempts and I would pick this up if it weren't for the price (this is coming from someone who dropped the $600 + for Hercules). I think the pricepoint is far, far out of alignment with the reality of what the figure is. I don't really want a transforming Nightbird, just a decent representation of the figure at a reasonable (read: no more than say, $50) price.

Am I the only one who wants to see third parties dig deeper? Between Arcee, Nightbird, Devastator and Optimus Prime, we have a fairly shallow pool overall. I want more Springer type stuff. (I actually want Springer himself too). This is what? The third or fourth Nightbird? Why is Nightbird four times as relevant as Blitzwing or Broadside or Blaster? Don't get me wrong, the work that went into this is very impressive, but these companies need to widen their net if they want to scrape some of my play money away from me.

That was available at TFcon a couple years back, and that one was clearanced out at BBTS for $30 pretty quick. Nice little toy too, but a little thin and floppy.

I have a theory that third parties now look at each other and go, "You did that? Nuh-uh, no you didn't! I'ma do it like ten times better!"
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Blaster and maybe Broadside are covered at least.

And MP-sized Blaster is in the works from the guys doing the MP-sized Soundwave, and Broadside is still on FansProject's list, after being teased at TFCon like, 3-4 years ago or something. He was probably Warbot-02, as listed on FansProject's (ridiculously, unbelievably optimistic) release schedule for last year.

We do really need a Blitzwing from somebody though. He's the last major hole in a Classics Decepticon army, with no real 3rd Party or outside-line (ie: Energon Shockblast or Cybertron/Device Label Soundwave filling in for Classics) substitute.

I personally attribute his absence to the relative difficulty of designing a robot that transforms into both a semi-realistic jet and tank, without being simply an articulated retread of the G1 design. But what do I know?

I hadn't heard about the MP Blaster. I'll believe Broadside when I see it. I really should have branched out beyond the first three B names that sprang to mind. Impactor maybe? Sandstorm triple changer? WFC Shockwave? I could go for an updated Tailgate after MtmtE #1. I could go on. Anyway, sorry to derail the thread. Though now I want to design a new Blitzwing.

iGear had Impactor in the works, but no clue whether that'll get done or not. Entirely new mold, but directly borrows Generations Warpath's engineering.

Hasbro's giving us RoC Shockwave in the next Generations line. Wave 1, along with the new Prime and Jazz.

Same here. Sex sells, I know, but do we also need that to sell giant transforming robots? (Then again, KISS Players...)

Zero interest in Nightbird. She was a non-entity who had no personality or even a voice. I'd buy toys of the cartoon's Sentinel Prime (that rhino-car) before hers.
