Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

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?

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.

Ok...

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.

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 wonder if they foresee this type of service having more buyers than, say, BotCon sets or individual club figures.

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.
