Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

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)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  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.

Where's the red numbers?

@  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.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

@  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)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Pics available at TFW and also here (via Seibertron).

Only "new" stuff is seeing PRiD Voyagers Starscream and Bulkhead in package, the RC Knock Out and BB in package, the production (not hand-painted) Optimus Maximus, and (maybe?) the Bot Shots 4-pack (Megatron & Optimus w/launchers, green Brawl and another BB. Megatron might be black, but I'm not sure; maybe dark brown. Different paint apps from the normal launcher version, anyway).

Man, I'm gonna buy Optimus Maximus, aren't I?

edit: Apparently there's a Kre-O display, but no close up pics that I've seen yet. Too bad, as I'm sure they showed the new stuff (unless Kre-O isn't the Oz market yet?).

Kreo Series 2 - September. Kreo Series 1 - (last year's sets) will continue to ship to stores, but the bigger sets will be at selected chains only, as exclusives.

Kreo will be more battle & playset themed this year, Vs "build" theme of last year.

I was curious if Optimus Maximus came with any cyberverse figures like the vehicles do, but it looks like it doesn't.
Cool, guess I don't have to hold off on buying a Commander Optimus Prime when I see him.

Yeah, it's a bit weird that he doesn't at least come with a Commander class Optimus repaint, but at least this way you don't get dicked over if you already buy one before getting Maximus.

That it's such an obnoxiously awful toy that really cannot be said to even transform and is still getting released feels like a lot more of a miracle. A dark one.

Optimus Maximus is still maybe a pass. I never did care much for the "stand or sit guys on robot's forearm or shoulder and give them a gun turret" gimmick on the Human Alliance toys, and I don't know if I like it much here either. I have to admit I'm probably a hypocrite though, because I'd probably like it more if the toy looked like Metroplex or Fortress Maximus, and those were G1 Legends all over it. icon-waspy.gif

I'm not sure why one would need to read the bio to figure that out. The toy is clearly a mecha, not a living TF.

I'd think the fact that it's designed to interact with a second, smaller Optimus Prime should have been enough, personally...
