@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Maybe like how Megaempress and her 4 Guards showed up so many male Cybertrons and Destrons. *snerk*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

Maybe as a female EDC officer who actually kicks his ass for a change.

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 September 2016 - 10:14 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

If you have a toy prone to GPS, it helps to move those pieces around on those (very carefully!) every once in a while, or they tend to stick a bit, so that when you eventually do move them, they are more likely to break.

The same goes for some transparent pieces.

The door on my RiD Prowl stuck once and when I went to move it, the socket cracked. I'm not sure if pre-movement would have prevented it but...It sucked.

Every RID Prowl that I have seen has a cracked door socket mine included and I used him pretty fequently.

I would suggest moving older toys limbs every so often cause I had a mint G1 Onslaught formed to Bruticus for like two years and I went to transform him and the back of his leg broke at the pivot. I think temperature changes and moisture can play a major factor in causing the plastics to bind and stick. Mine are in my basement and I have a dehumidifier and desecant bags on my shelves.

If your collection is in a temperature controlled room with normal humidity I don't think you would have to worry too much about the newer bots though

its a hard thing for us collectors to think about, but these things aren't (and never were) meant to last forever... so just enjoy them how you want to tec...

short of vacuum sealing everything inbox in uv proof plastic and never ever EVER having any fun with it... bad stuff will happen.

rubber cracks, paint chips... loose joints... pin rust... any number of things.

This is why I wish one day I could buy a Transformer (for a ridiculous price I'm sure) that's made of machined aluminum and replaceable rubber grommets (for tight joints), held together with hex screws that can be taken completely apart to be serviced, cleaned, and repainted. Something that would stand the test of time for millennia.

Strip the worn paint, replace the rubber joint sockets, and your 900-year-old MP Prime is as good as new!

If any current Hasbro Transformer product would last that long, it would probably be the friggin' Rescue Bots.
