Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

QUOTE(Octavius Prime @ Feb 7 2012, 05:53 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
The only thing I don't like about this guy is his name. Yeah, it makes sense regarding his role in the ride, but Evac already exists as a movieverse character and looks nothing like this. And yes, I'm aware that a 2-time repaint character that didn't appear in the films themselves is of secondary concern to coming up with a character that's the audience's link to the interactive movie ride, but still, some continuity would be appreciated. Like, he could have been "Getaway"/Breakaway.

So, instead of being a movie dude who has the same name as another movie dude... he should be a movie dude who has the same name as another movie dude?

So, for clarification, there's a Deluxe Class Evac and a Legion Class Evac coming soon? Are they both going to be sold everywhere, or only at the Universal Studios Store?

The Legion Class figure is going to be every where (and Universal too I believe) but the Deluxe will be Universal only (at this point). Asia is getting a mass release of the Deluxe class figure as well as an exclusive Universal only version. At NYCC Hasbro said that the Deluxe class was going to be mass released in the US too, I don't know if that still holds true now that the Movie Trilogy line isn't coming to the US except for the Optimus truck set.

A Twitter friend was at Universal Studios Hollywood recently. She asked about it, and was given a rough (no guarantee) estimate of June 10th.

Actually I'm looking forward to this, because it's basically a bigger version of HtfD Scout-class Breacher, and that's a toy I rather liked.

They probably want the ride to stand on its own, as a ride, before they have to worry about supporting a toy line.

No, he's right. They're probably just incompetent at making money, and that's why they have a theme park ride based on their transforming car toys.

It's almost as if Universal didn't want to call off their big opening for the hoped-to-be-hot new ride just because one piece of merchandise wasn't ready in the gift shop yet.

And the benefit of not selling the toys is? Have you ever been on a ride at a park? When you exit, it is all one big sell. That is a big part of the point of the "experience." Sell pictures and merchandise.

To develop a toy specifically for this experience and not have it ready during what may be the busiest time for the ride is an opportunity missed.

Apparently doesn't take much reality to upset some people. Of course, your nonsense is not in any way a rebuttal to my point that not having the toy ready loses dollars. If you can't ever admit fault you can't expect to be taken as a rational adult.

Oh can you imagine? Of course, like the poster above, you're more concerned with simply typing a response to me than having any tertiary argument to mine.

Obviously it makes more business sense to open even if the toy isn't ready, but it doesn't excuse the fact it should be ready if you're number one goal is making the most money ever minute of every day, which it always is.

See, I was kind of hoping that you were smart enough to realize that sometimes things just plain don't work out as intended, and that you were therefore criticizing Universal for opening on time anyway. But alas, you've disappointed me once again.

You've also disappointed me by using "you're" as a possessive.

But what disappoints me most of all is your attempt to argue with gargunkle's joke. That's just sad, dude.
