Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

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)

@  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)

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

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 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)

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?
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

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
