Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

Fort Max was heavily rumored for release in the next couple of years.

There have been rumours about Dinobots but not all rumors turn out ot be true. Molds busted or not, I'd say it would be smart money to reinvest in those, but we'll see.

At least Encore is continuing. The more surprises ahead, the better.

Even if a molds are busted these companies have the technology Im sure to remold from original toy. As for Fort Max...I think the new candy mold might be a feeler to see how well it goes over. Im just curious about release's and child safety. Id deff shell out 200 or so for a reissue vs a G for an original one.

I'd like to see the Dinobots (for obvious reasons) and then the Aerialbots myself. Yes, the Aerialbots have been (and continue to be) knocked off to infinite degree but, well they're my favorite Combiner and I'd love to see them brought back at Takara quality and with new Decos (even remolds?) to better match the toon.


I'm a bit biased about Fort Max. On the one hand I still have my original from childhood. Now I could use a few pieces to fix him up but I don't think I'd ever spring for another full version. Almost certainly would be too pricey for me.


Ooooo, I know Dino Cassettes! Release those four! Surprised it took me this long to think of them...


ZacWilliam, feels the cassettes are infinately collectable. They could keep churning out new character repaints and even start making new ones in exactly the G1 style and I'd want them all. Just don't keep packaging them with Blaster and SW... icon-waspy.gif

I'd want a four pack of Scrounge (Rumble), Tyrannitron (Overkill), Top-Heavy (Ramhorn) and Lionizer (Steeljaw).

When it comes to cassette repaints, i think each mold should be used four times (minus reissues). Laserbeak for example was repainted into Buzzsaw, Garboil and Sundor so no more of that mold while there are other molds to be repainted.


Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

I wouldn't mind some E-hobby characters like Tiger Tracks released at reasonable prices.

New character repaints would be nice. How many Jazzes and Ironhides do we need among all the lines? Maybe Barricade from Prowl or Black Ironhide as Motormouth.

G1 Acid Storm and Slipstream.

If they think it'll be worth the expense, then they may. But due to lost/destroyed/degraded molds, we have yet to see several G1 toys reissued, like Wheeljack and Mirage for example.

In Japan I'm sure it won't be an issue, but there's no way it would get a mass-release here.

The Dinobots are about the only G1 molds I could feasibly see being worth the expense.

I'd love a Reissue Wheeljack and all but I have a feeling him (and Sunstreaker/Mirage) wouldn't be that great of a seller.

I wager you are correct there, and that's why the work on new molds for them has not been done. Its just not likely to be worth it.
