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."

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

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.

@  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.

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)

@  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.

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.

The size-class is not Powerizer

So, recently we've been calling the ~20 USD pricepoint "Powerizers". This is incorrect! They are, in fact, Voyagers--this is printed on the very box. "Powerizer" is a subname much like Mechtech was during DOTM. I have not yet found the deluxes, but I find it very likely they follow the same pattern.

Does this matter? Not in the least. Do I care? Yeah, I'm crazy like that.

Thank you for you time and attention.

It's been bugging me too. It doesn't even say Powerizer on the box.
Which is good because that is a dumb word.

Interesting... when I picked up PRiD Prime and Megatron from Mejier, I noticed it was just listed as 'Transformers', but at Toys R Us today the shelf tag said 'powerizers' on it.

It also listed them at 26.99, while Meijer had them at 19.99, so take that as you will.

As I said, "Powerizer" is like the Mechtech imprint from DOTM. The box says "Voyager Class". I'm pretty sure what Hasbro is calling them on the box trumps what the store computers have in them.

The Deluxes just have Deluxe on the package. If the word "Revealer" is on them anywhere, it's in the Cybertronian script bits.

The BB/SS two pack co-sells clearly say "Powerizer Class."

I'd call it more of a dropped name for the size class rather than the gimmick name, though it works equally well as that.

You'll be lucky if you can find one in the huge piles of MaxCons and Megas clogging the shelves.


But in all seriousness, isn't "Voyager" just as stupid a name?

At least Voyager is an actual word. I mean, sure it doesn't seem to mean anything in relation to TF toys, but I'll take it over an awkward non-word like "Powerizer" any day.

You say that, but Basics/Scouts don't exist as part of the mainline any more - the closest equivalent (Cyberverse Cmdr) is now the large class of the small-scale line.

Which, of course, makes "Deluxe" a nonsense title, since how can the most basic type of toy in the line be "Deluxe"? icon-waspy.gif

And "Mega" and "Ultra" aren't nouns in common usage, so talking about "a mega" or "an ultra" just sounds weird icon-arcee.gif

You forgot Super (aka "Leader") between Ultra and Supreme.

But yeah, this worked fine from 1995 to 2007. Now we just have a bunch of redundant novelty crap choking out Deluxes at the $9-13 range, no Scouts (lol Commanders) and the larger size classes are all dying off. Voyager will be the next casualty when stores figure out they're supposed to be charging thirty dollars for them (woo-hoo, eight bucks for a ten cent LED and two watch batteries!).

It made sense back when it started in Cybertron, with the whole exploration theme for finding the Cyber Keys. Now it's just an artifact title.
