Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

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.
