But with Tauros you don't really have to worry about cars. ;)

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 04:20 PM)

At least you don't have to clean up after a bike.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:55 PM)

Multiples of each except for Scorch Strike Jetstorm.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:54 PM)

I've seen waves 1-3 of the original torpedo/cyclone/buzzsaw Mini-Cons plus a lone Scorch Strike Jetstorm from wave 4, as well as wave 1 of the Weaponizers.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:33 PM)

I litteraly have to tracel 20 minutes out of town to the next town over if I want to even find the 5 dollar heads. Which of course.. I don't have the money to do *sulks in corner*

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Yeah, still the first wave.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

You have Minicons?

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

My Walmart has had three minicons and two Leader Skywarps and nothing else for about three months now.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

No seriously... We have almost an entire aisle of Batman/Superman toys... and from what the stocker has told me...at least 10 more boxes of it in the back.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:30 PM)

Wait.. you have Transformers? Around here it's "MAOR BATMANS!"

@  Steevy Maximus : (04 December 2016 - 02:18 PM)

Probably do

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:10 PM)

Seriously, I get the impression we actually have better distribution here around my part in Germany than most of the US does.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:06 PM)

Over 40 minutes of waiting on the phone to find out if they had Galvatron (I was aiming for a price match deal if they did). Along the way, I ended up connecting to two other customers who were waiting to be connected to other departments.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:00 PM)

Man, Walmart... that was an adventure of sorts yesterday...

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:57 AM)

I saw megatron at walmart, and astrotrain as well. Figured they were in the same case assortment. Now I don't know what to think.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Still hoping to find Chromedome, and another shot at Rewind. Not part of the sale, but...

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Wow, didn't even know those were out here yet.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:15 AM)

I got me an astrotrain at that sale! Wanted a megatron too, but didn't find one.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:14 AM)

Went to TRU to take advantage of a 40% off deal they had on Sentinel Prime and Galvatron (I wanted the latter), but they were out of stock before the sale even began. =P Got a raincheck, at least.

@  BlackMax : (04 December 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Huh. Maybe I can figure a way to headcanon IDW Strafe into being AoE Strafe...

@  zephyrX9 : (04 December 2016 - 03:12 AM)

I'm sure under a different artist, she might look like something!

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/33/Raptoricon_symbol.jpg

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:35 PM)

Yeah, I felt Arrow was the weakest entry... but after least season I kind of got turned off the show, and haven't watched any of the current season.

@  Jalaguy : (03 December 2016 - 05:34 PM)

It was good, but would've been better if Arrow hadn't co-opted its portion to do an relatively pointless anniversary episode.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 December 2016 - 05:31 PM)

Haven't seen any of the DC shows.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2016 - 05:24 PM)

How did y'all feel about this week's CW DC shows crossover? I thought it was great and reminiscent of comic books!

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 08:25 AM)

I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

Had to be asked. OK More than 40 Generations figures in 2013 is a huge number when you come down to it. Literally huge. So go at it. Can you name your top 40 existing characters (no particular order) you'd like to see reborn next year?

1) Grimlock
2) Slug
3) Swoop
4) Snarl
5) Sludge
6) Blitzwing
7) Trailbreaker
8) Gears
9) Hoist
10) Skids
11)Kickback
12) Bombshell
13) Shrapnel
14) Silverbolt
15) Sky Dive
16) Air Raid
17) Slingshot
18) Fireflight
19) G1 Arcee
20) Fortress Maximus
21) Chromedome
22) Scrounge (please?)
23) Macabre
24) Impactor
25) Grotusque
26) Hun-Grr
27) Blot
28) Sinnertwin
29) Rippersnapper
30) Cutthroat
31) Skorponok
32) Carnivac
33) Jhiaxus
34) Elita 1
35) Deathsaurus
36) Devcon
37) G1 Top Spin
38) G1 Twin Twist
39) Chop Shop
40) Venom


-ZacWilliam, god 40 is a hard list to fill, and I'm sure I left off a ton of good choices (especially big guys as i'd love Omega Supreme but not smaller than Leader)and yeah, I'm a G1 fanboy, no appologies there. What's your dream list look like?

It would be completely unreasonable to expect forty new mold Deluxes. I seriously expect many of the forty if that number is accurate to be Cyberverse toys. And repaints from previous Generations toys plus repaints from other new molds yet to be announced.

Forty would be easy to fill but then I'd list some obscure characters few others care for.

I guess if I were to take my list and put it in order of OMG WANT, it would read...

01) Fortress Maximus
02) Trailbreaker
03) Soundwave
04) Laserbeak/Buzzsaw
05) Huffer
06) Gears
07) Rumble/Frenzy

Of course I'd love new Dinobots as well, but I put completing the 1984 cast + Fort ahead of that.

I know! Let's list our 40 favorite transformers! Brilliant! :/

The big question is what will they repaint/remold. I'd love a Jackpot from Prowl, a Ricochet from Jazz, and a REAL Roadrage/Swerve from Tracks. Purplestuff, Slicer, movie-esque Barricade from Prowl, and a half dozen other Classics/Universe/Generations autobot repaints. Including a junkion 2 pack w/ a more g1 inspired Wreckgar paintscheme. Sweeps.

If you want to know what my priority deluxe Generations wishlist is... I guess:
Blitzwing
Swoop
Slug/Slag
Snarl
(voyager) Sludge
(voyager) Grimlock
Gnaw/Sharkticons

clearly listing 40 is just obscene.

We know (ok, reasonably expect) the head remolds to be part of that so...

1) Kup remold (Swerve?)
2) Prime remold (Nemesis?)
3) Scourge remold (Ratbat?)
4) Jazz remold (uhhh?)
5) Perceptor remold (Reflector)
6) Lugnut (uhhh?)

Plus I figure a lot more are redecos/remolds of earlier molds. I'd be shocked if we even get 20+ new Generations molds in 2013.

Really anything I put down just sounds way too fanboy-y/delusional.
If I could walk into a store and buy a voyager Ultra Magnus and at least one, but preferably more, of The 13 I will be incredibly happy.
I'd want Ultra Magnus to be new and Aligned-y looking, and the The 13 should be one that doesn't have a toy already.


Also, I don't really see them putting out 40 deluxes in a year. At least not all in one line.
There has to be another size class.

Anybody as long as we get someone not from G1.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I can't believe I forgot Nightbeat!

I feel like that omission throws my whole list into chaos and doubt. I'm like the guy from Monty Python who got ejected off the bridge for misstating his favorite color. ;p

Seriously. Nightbeat is right behind "The rest of the 84 cast" and "all the Dinobots"on my top wish list.

And pre-planed Minerva repaint/remold please.


-ZacWilliam, yes 40 new mold Deluxes is rediculous, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun listing the 40 characters we'd love to see done. icon-hotrod.gif

1. Shockwave (A helicopter, a less flimsy-looking HISS Tank or hoverjet like DOTM Laserbeak would be nice)
2. Soundwave (A stealth drone or a tricked-out van would work)
3. Starscream (An F-22, as long as he's less boring than the Classics Seeker mold)
4. Red Alert (UT)
5. Starscream (Armada)
6. Megatron (Tank, can be colored like G2 or Classics)
7. Scourge (Nemesis Prime made from RTS Prime)
8. Swindle (Can be a new mold or a Hound retool)
9. Lockdown (The ROTF mold is good, but I'd like one with less panels)
10. Blitzwing
11. Jetfire (Armada)
12. Optimus Prime (Can be a new Deluxe firetruck, maybe?]
13. Ironhide (either a Humvee or a Movie-inspired pickup truck)
14. Flatline (A hearse, natch; this guy NEEDS a toy. And more appearances in fiction. A Classics-ization, but due to him modifying his own body, he's very lanky-looking and freaky.)
15. Nightbeat (new mold)
16. Megatron (Armada MOOSE)
17. Megatron (BW)
18. Ratchet (A new separate mold from Ironhide)
19. Blaster (Can be a Soundwave retool if Soundwave's a van)
20. Arcee (Preferably a bike, basically a Classics-ization of Prime Arcee)
21. Cosmos (Has to be a UFO, and has to be chubby.)
22. Barricade (Classics-ization of Movie Barricade)
23. Prowl (Retool of Barricade)
24. Sky-Byte (New mold for all the people who missed out on Botcon Sky-Byte; I didn't, but it'd be nice for there to be more Sky-Bytes for everyone)
25. Waspinator (Every joint is able to be detached and re-attached - just like in the show!)
26. Slipstream (Classics - turns into a Berkut)
27. Thundercracker (Transforms into a Cobra Rattler)
28. Skywarp (Transforms into an F-117 and comes with a cardboard stand that's essentially a set of stairs for him to push people down icon-fire.gif)
29. Springer
30. Optimus Primal
31. Sentinel Prime (Classics-ization of the DOTM version)
32. Bulkhead (Classics take on Animated Bulkhead)
33. Cannonball (New mold Amphibious Assault vehicle, or maybe a Bulkhead retool - like a bigger Breacher)
34. Whirl (A V-22)
35. Roadbuster (Basically a Warthog from Halo)
36. Rhinox
37. Orion Pax (A pick-up truck based on Alternators Optimus - has the IDW Pre-Prime Optimus head)
38. Galvatron (New mold that turns into a futuristic tank)
39. Jackpot (Nightbeat Retool)
40. Blackarachnia (A show-accurate representation of her original BW form)

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

Curious as to whether the repaint/remould would be Minerva or Siren (for the latter, packaged in car mode, it'd be a blue car and a silver car). Never likely to get a Siren otherwise, after all, and while Hasbro are slightly less gun-shy than they once were on the "OH NOES GIRLS!1" front, I'm not entirely sure they'd go out of their way to do one if there was an alternative.*

*No, Nightbeat and Siren weren't originally mouldmates, but they ARE similar cars associated with one another, and cases like Tracks/Wheeljack, Drift/Blurr & Bumblebee/Cliffjumper/Hot Shot show they're not shy about making a repaint/remould out of a character who originally wasn't one.

as for new stuff, i'd really like to see the dinobots all made, but i'd really prefer a voyager size class to be included so they could make sludge bigger. and if we're getting voyager class, i'd throw in bm tankor, bw rhinox, and tm megatron
