@blackmax-cold leads to snow. snow leads to delayed shipments. delayed shipments lead to a paranoid blackmax. are you SURE you want the cold??

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:41 PM)

:D

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:24 PM)

...TAKE IT!

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:24 PM)

Then make like Bart Simpson and just take it! Take it take it take it take it!

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:18 PM)

..............I ~might~ want all the cold.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:17 PM)

Trust me, you're not getting ALL the cold. You don't want ALL the cold.

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:04 PM)

You guys in Canada have nice weather! I know it! You keep sending all the cold down here to Ohio to dump snow on us.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 05:45 PM)

@Nevermore Wonko and I are in Canada. ;P

But with Tauros you don't really have to worry about cars. ;)

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 04:20 PM)

At least you don't have to clean up after a bike.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:55 PM)

Multiples of each except for Scorch Strike Jetstorm.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:54 PM)

I've seen waves 1-3 of the original torpedo/cyclone/buzzsaw Mini-Cons plus a lone Scorch Strike Jetstorm from wave 4, as well as wave 1 of the Weaponizers.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:33 PM)

I litteraly have to tracel 20 minutes out of town to the next town over if I want to even find the 5 dollar heads. Which of course.. I don't have the money to do *sulks in corner*

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Yeah, still the first wave.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:32 PM)

You have Minicons?

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

My Walmart has had three minicons and two Leader Skywarps and nothing else for about three months now.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:31 PM)

No seriously... We have almost an entire aisle of Batman/Superman toys... and from what the stocker has told me...at least 10 more boxes of it in the back.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 December 2016 - 02:30 PM)

Wait.. you have Transformers? Around here it's "MAOR BATMANS!"

@  Steevy Maximus : (04 December 2016 - 02:18 PM)

Probably do

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 02:10 PM)

Seriously, I get the impression we actually have better distribution here around my part in Germany than most of the US does.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:06 PM)

Over 40 minutes of waiting on the phone to find out if they had Galvatron (I was aiming for a price match deal if they did). Along the way, I ended up connecting to two other customers who were waiting to be connected to other departments.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:00 PM)

Man, Walmart... that was an adventure of sorts yesterday...

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:57 AM)

I saw megatron at walmart, and astrotrain as well. Figured they were in the same case assortment. Now I don't know what to think.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Still hoping to find Chromedome, and another shot at Rewind. Not part of the sale, but...

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Wow, didn't even know those were out here yet.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:15 AM)

I got me an astrotrain at that sale! Wanted a megatron too, but didn't find one.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:14 AM)

Went to TRU to take advantage of a 40% off deal they had on Sentinel Prime and Galvatron (I wanted the latter), but they were out of stock before the sale even began. =P Got a raincheck, at least.

@  BlackMax : (04 December 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Huh. Maybe I can figure a way to headcanon IDW Strafe into being AoE Strafe...

@  zephyrX9 : (04 December 2016 - 03:12 AM)

I'm sure under a different artist, she might look like something!

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/33/Raptoricon_symbol.jpg

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

Spinister uses the Tomahawk mold (weapons and lack of a port for the Mech Tech weapon) with DotM Vortex's head.

Octopunch is Seaspray.

Optimus is Laser Optimus in SG colors.

Kick-Off is Jazz with a new head sculpt (NOT Treadshot's).

Junkion's all have different heads. Junkheap has the CORRECT eyes and horns this time, not Scrapheap's.

Kick-Off with an altmode seems odd. I know there isn't really anything totally appropriate they can use, but still, strange for the character.

The Botcon displays showed their cards calling them Wreck-Gar, Junkheap, and Scrapheap.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Which is appropriate, because "a lot" is probably exactly how much I'm going to need to pay for one...

A rubbery material not unlike the rope part of Nerds Rope.

That is a pretty nice shared deco for the Junkions. Also, they appear to have their proper visor/eye inserts, this time.

Yup, as I mentioned Junkheap has the correct visor/horns, not Scrap Heap's/Iron's.

I want Kickoff.

... I'd give someone $50 for it. Would cover half the cost of the 2-pack. I have no interest in SG Prime.


Sadly, I doubt anyone will offer for a non-eBay-inflated price...
