Three oinkers wearing pants, plate of hot air, basket of Grandma's breakfast and change the bull to a gill- got it.

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

Well, you got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

Turn them into fleas, harmless, little fleas, and then put that flea in a box, and then put that box inside of another box, and then mail that box to yourself, and when it arrives... SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER!

Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

Trust me, you're not getting ALL the cold. You don't want ALL the cold.

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:04 PM)

You guys in Canada have nice weather! I know it! You keep sending all the cold down here to Ohio to dump snow on us.

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.

I guess that opens up the possibility of non-Powerizer Voyagers?

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?
What is singature?

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.
