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)

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.

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)

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.

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

A member posted some pics from Robot Kingdom of the new TFP stuff. Gaia Unicron and Darkness Megatron. From the pics, Megs looks like a Voyager. Also some PCC combiners, not sure who since I don't collect those.

Edit: I've had my coffee now and got a better look at Megs. ^^ Changed info to voyager.

Oh, so they're releasing the PCC's in their original colors? Shame, I was wondering if they'd mix things up a bit.

Would like better pictures of Gaia Unicron. Darkness Megatron seems to be Voyager Megs with a bat-backpack?

Megatron is really confusing. I thought it was the deluxe, that's what the ship looks like. But it seems like he has the shoulder pad armor like Voyager does. Plus those added bat wings. It's the ship mode that really throwing me off. That looks like the deluxe from that angle.

And since you called it a bat-backpack, now I suddenly want this fig. >_>

I wouldn't give up hope yet that these won't be redecoed. These types of pictures from magazines often just show the Hasbro versions (the same thing was true for much of Henkei! Henkei! when they were solicited in this type of mag).

They're just the Hasbro stock photos.

Well that's better.

Looks like they went for unifying color schemes for the drone teams.

The results for Combatmaster/Bombshock look pretty boring. Pass

I kinda like Jetmaster's colors though. Blue and white is pretty. (So close to the Jetfire colors I wanted to see, but just missing. Ah well.) His singular small robot form is quite nice.

Can't really imagine what they were thinking for the Icepick repaint. Weird busy clashy colors. But they look good on the alt. Form.

Searchlight/Choppermaster looks ok. Going seafoam for a rescue copter makes sense, and works but isn't quite different enough to really interest me.


-ZacWilliam, I'd buy the Skyburst set at US prices, but not at what it would cost to import...

The color schemes are definitely a lot more unified among the 5 pack guys. I think everyone is an improvement (or in Bombshock's case, about the same) except for Icepick. His colors are weird, but I do like the detailing.

Okay, just choked when I saw the price listing for the 5-packs. Nearly $63 per 5-pack, and that's with the Amazon.co.jp discount.

I love me some PCCs, but... not those mold-sets, I don't think. Not again, again.
