@  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)

@  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.

@  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.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

I ask this because over the last year or so I have been geting some really expencive pieces.
Like City Commander,Hybrid Convoy,Robotech verson of Jetfire.
And they sit on various shelfs in the same pose?
Does this pose a threat? should I change the position every once in awile?

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.
