What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

Hold the button (orange spot) on his chest and push them down till they click.

The horns can never be kept down! \m/. >_< .\m/

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I would've guessed that unaired theme for Beast Machines.

@  Gizmoboy : (29 November 2016 - 04:11 PM)

yes, Lightbright is correct on that one

"Petsmart" is actually an example of bad Romanisation that's become entrenched in the fandom.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 November 2016 - 06:27 PM)

No no no, it's SPELT "Petsmart," but it's pronounced "Throatwobbler Mangrove."

@  Dracula : (28 November 2016 - 06:23 PM)

It's pronounced "I can't go here with my wife because she'll cry when she goes to the cat adoption area"

@  Bass X0 : (28 November 2016 - 05:02 PM)

Is "Petsmart" pronounced, "PetsMart" or "PetSmart"?

So I've been trying to track down all the harder to find media now that I have a few bucks saved in the old Paypal account, and I've come across a number of these listings on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a70ec8822

Most all of them are from Malaysia and wreak of KO even though the auctions swear they aren't bootlegs. However they are definitely not the Maximum Entertainment UK DVDs (which incidentally are absolutely NOWHERE to be found anywhere.) Does anyone have any experience or knowledge in what these are? RiD and Armada are some of the last series I don't own, short of old VHS recordings. And with those I don't even have a full RiD because of September 11th. The Armada sets are going for an arm and a leg, even used.

Yeah it's odd. The entire series has been released twice on DVD in the UK and used to be everywhere, but the DVDs are going for silly money nowadays!

Well, the Maximum ones are whatever the DVD equivalent of "out of print" is these days and have been for a while, so it comes as no surprise that they're going for big money when a large like the US doesn't have the show available domestically. I think a lot of Americans got wise and imported it!

I have that DVD, and it indeed has all episodes from RID.
I have to say that it is a KO, which is usually burned from the original source, or a collection of downloaded files from the internet. They play well on most DVD players, but don't expect any bonus content.

Do the discs glass mastered, and do they have any art on them?
How is the overall quality for a KO? Are they on par with say, the Disney 90's X-Men DVDs?
For 25 bucks it might be worth it, considering there's nary a Maximum Entertainment auction on ebay.

I bought a set off of iOffer a few years ago that is a rip of the UK release with the extra's intact. They weren't much though, mostly just the japanese Car Robots toy commercials. The set ran me less than $20 and it's great quality.

I'd still snap up an offical release in a second!

Those actually weren't extras on the UK set, so that's something different.

Oh well, they're still cool to have, and they're still dvd quality. They're not just episodes copied off of tv.

I think these were ripped from the first UK release which was supposed to have had some minor special features. The following release had none.

I just checked and I was mistaken. I paid $25 for this set, but I actually paid extra because I wanted a dvd case and accompanying artwork which was extra.

I found some on iOffer from a different seller here. Might be worth checking out.

Well, that cover artwork is definitely lifted from the second UK release of the series. As far as extras went, the UK just had character profiles.

Thanks Shockwave...I checked out the listing and looks like it is in PAL...does that mean the DVD won't play right for Americans? Not too familiar with how that works when it comes to DVD's.

One more question for McFeely (or any UK allsparkers): will the official set work in american DVD players, or a PS3?
