Maybe like how Megaempress and her 4 Guards showed up so many male Cybertrons and Destrons. *snerk*

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.

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  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)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

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.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

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)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

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.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

So I was walking down the Transformers isle in my locale Walmart, and I was looking at the $20 Prime Optimus Prime, and Megatron Figures.

I noticed something odd, a slightly different colored figure in a box.

At first I thought, ooh Starscream! But nope, it was something much different.

It was a returned Megatron, but fully painted!

I quickly bought it, and at home love how it compares to the original.

The only thing I find modified is the Gun no longer has the Deployable Blades.

Weird find!

This makes sense to me.
Someone bought a Megs and painted it hoping to turn a healthy profit on eBay only to discover eBay is drowning in Megatron customs and only the truly unique and amazing ones net a profit.
So this person returned the figure to at least get their money back.

I was shocked.... It was like finding a rare varient....

Looking over the figure, someone painted every piece.... Just the time and effort made it worth the second purchase of Megatron for me.

LOL, I asked my Daughter which figure she liked best and she said the original, because it was less scary.... Which is a win in my book for the custom figure. LOL

I hope so. I'm going to keep an eye out for any future random painted figures at the store and will let you know if I find any more.

Here's hoping for a better painted Prime soon.

I've seen people return their customs, but they've almost always been really crappy customs of figures that later came out officially (typically Marvel or DC). I'd love to find something like this.

It's a good thing you bought it, otherwise 20 years from now, some guy on the interbrainweb is gonna be in a violent argument with people about how the PRiD Megatron he got when he was a kid was painted up all awesome, not bare gray plastic.

My idea was that some creative troll was doing this in hopes of causing a 'MP Optimus Prime is the same figure I had as a kid' or 'Blue Bluestreak' type urban legend further down the line, though I do hope it was a fan trying to be awesome and give some random kid the coolest PRID Megatron ever icon-op.gif .
