I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

Never thought of it that way... I thought that was more of a hommage to the toy's helmet. Like Grapple's head mold is more alike to the cartoon design's helmet.

Hmm, would a ladder for Inferno have helped? Just wondering how much of the essential Inferno-ness is lacking in the Universe toy.


If it would change the overall design of the to make the vehicle mode look longer and the robot mode look "taller", maybe.

But really ladder or pump truck doesn't really matter to me. It's just that G1 Inferno was one of the first toys to have somewhat human proportions compared to the Autobots around him. Which always made that aspect of his toy stand out in my mind. So the big chunky no-waist Universe toy was a disappointment since we first saw images of it.


Huh. I'm apparently one of these people, like Walky, who've always thought of Inferno as a big lump of Dery squatness; probably because I didn't own the G1 mold until I was an adult, so I just had the fiction. If anything, Universe Inferno struck me as more athletic than I'd expected. So maybe the Universe toy splits the difference just fine.

I do kinda want him to have a red face though, like in the comics. Maybe copper red. Maybe I'll do that.

The collar is an important part of the look to me. It's iconic like Shockwaves hexagonal, one eyed head, Jazz' visor (even Bay kept that) or Hot Rod's spoiler.

Too many reimagings in both the toys and comics have taken such things away or added things that just look off in recent years, such as Blurr's wing head or Hot Rod's horns.

I was always a huge Inferno fan but the first toy I had was the Actionmaster. Don't get me wrong, I was a huge Actionmaster fan but AM Inferno never looked right to me because he was missing his collar.

Eh, it's not like it's a perminent attachment is it? As long as it could come off and on easy I'd totally take one to make my Inferno and Grappel look more "Classic".

I can assure you it will probably cost at least $10. This is, after all, fan-produced, and casting materials aren't cheap.

Assuming their optics work anything at all like human eyes, that is. They likely have highly advanced sensors, with significantly more visual capability than us.
