@  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.

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)


@  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

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

Can't tell what some of these are, too washed out. Something that looks like a Lockdown recolor. Is there a second Depthcharge slide? I guess.

Edit: Circuit? Off to the wiki I guess. Also have no idea who Ultra Mammoth is. Or it's an Ultra Magnus pun?

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

Correct on both counts. I had a hard time taking the pics with my phone. Powered Convoy has higher quality stuff coming at the end of the panels.

Was out at the store. Just got back to see these.


Depth Charge - like the character, like the mold. It's an off choice of alt mode for someone I associate so strongly with the water, but the robot mode look pushes it through for me. Just. I'd like him, but don't need him. Still I think it's enough to make me renew.

Ultra Mammoth - Cute idea (and we don't have an official BW Ultra Magnus yet) and big mold, but I have two of it already (Original and Nemesis) and it is SOOOOO hard to TF and kibblishous. I think it's cooler in concept than the toy will be. Leaning towards pass.

Circuit - can't see the pic clear enough to be sure, but not very interested right now. Leaning toward pass.

Scourge - No interest. Pass.

Slipstream - WANT. Can't even see it well in the pics but WANT.

Jackpot - if it had been G1, sold. I didn't collect Animated, so meh, Pass.

Breakdown - sorry but I'm too much of a G1 design purist. And not a big Stunticon fan to boot. Probably Pass.

I think there are some good Ideas here that others will love, but with only ONE that I really want I think the Sub will be a pass for me.

-ZacWilliam, impressed by the number of toys if nothing else. And want better pics of Slipstream.

Yeah, this series of figures is all over the place. Not the way to encourage subscribing, as there's going to be tons of people only interested in one or two figures, and unwilling to pay $300+ for them.

Looking for; 2005 Botcon Ratchet, Junker Classics Optimus Prime (for parts)

I can sort of understand the thinking of having them be all over the place -- I mean, if they made the whole thing, I dunno, Animated Protectobots or something, then that would be great for people who like Animated and pointless for everybody else. They're probably hoping enough people will see enough characters they want to justify getting the whole thing. (Or at least going halfsies with somebody that wants the figures you don't.)

But yeah, too much of a mixed bag for me. I like Scourge well enough (well, I'm indifferent about the character, but I don't have that mold at all, so that's a plus), and Jackpot looks kinda nice...Slipstream may be good, but overall I'm unlikely to want to pay what these are likely to cost.

"that's not a duck. I know this crowd knows what a tentacle looks like. "

Just what are they implying about this fandom? icon-arcee.gif icon-hotrod.gif

Animated Jackpot from Jazz - I can't believe I'm saying this because of how much I love Animated, but I wish it was a G1 based mold, maybe Hasbro will give me one. (wishful thinking)

RiD Scourge from generations g2 prime - (makes grabby hands) I want it, I do think Hasbro could release one retail just fine but there's no way it'd have the upside down symbol, which is a great touch. icon-ironhide.gif

Slipstream from Prime Starscream. New head - WANT!!! I dare say that's the best of the set.

Circuit from Axor - I had to look up who Circuit is, nice reuse of the mold and nice color layout.

Ultra Mammoth from Big Convoy - Always wanted this mold, look great and honestly feels like the only way we'll get a blue and red UM. Wait forgot about Animated. icon-wildride.gif

Depth Charge from Terradive - WANT SO HARD!!!!

Edit- Oops, forgot Breakdown - Looks good, but I think I like the G2 version more.

I wonder if I can afford to join this year.

I only want Ultra Mammoth (what a seriously random choice) and Scourge, so that leaves me with four toys I really don't want.

Damn, Depth Charge might just be enough for me to rejoin next year for the freebie figure. I have Terradive sitting on my desk right now, never really thought of him as a Depth Charge candidate, but I can see why - the face is somewhat similar, the trident is typically a "water" weapon, and Depth Charge does have wings.

Only figure I'm interested in is the Ultra Mammoth, seeing as I never got a copy of that mold and it's an Ultra Magnus toy. I wonder how expensive it'll be though, and whether we'll be able to get individual figures instead of all of them. Time shall tell.

I figure that I'm going to handle this subscription the same way I'm planning the DC Club Infinite Earths one: Keep the figures I want, flip the others.

Also, even though that Jackpot has an Animated body, is the head stylized like Animated? Or is it a more traditional head placed on an Animated body? I'm assuming Slipstream will be the same. More typical head placed on the Prime body.
