What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

You don't know the pain of Johnny Test until you live in Canada.

@  tffan01 : (21 May 2016 - 07:36 PM)

Anyone watched the piece of shit called the Supernoobs on Cartoon Network? It somehow managed to be worse than Johnny Test or Uncle Grandpa. It's jokes are cliche, the show is boring with stereotypical characters.

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:59 PM)

No euphemism. Just old farts doing stuff they shouldn't.

@  Paladin : (21 May 2016 - 06:54 PM)

@  Confuzor : (21 May 2016 - 06:14 PM)

30 year old bodies were not meant for Bounce Houses. Oof.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2016 - 04:31 PM)

Shouldn't Sideshow be a different article?

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:19 PM)

That's just my opinion, if you want a better viewpoint, go ask in the TFWiki thread.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 04:18 PM)

Yeah, you could probably go a bit more in depth about Sideshow Collectibles.

I think that the Dinobots would sell just fine if they would just put them in the show. I think one of the problems is that Hasbro, much like Bay, sees 5 giant robot dinosaurs and says: "That's not a disguise! Transformers are 'Robot's in Disguise'! Dinosaurs aren't a disguise!"

But that's the point! The Dinobots aren't in disguise.


That may be the point, but that point doesn't jibe with the show's current course. However little the "robots in disguise" concept has mattered in the past, it's in the forefront now.

I'd really love to see the Dinobots on Prime too, but I can appreciate that it's a bit of a writing hurdle.

OK Dinobot repaint/ retool ideas...

Grimlock in the Beast Megatron or Overkill

Swoop in to Terrorsaur

Snarl in to Slugfest

Slag in to Horri-Bull, maybe...

And I got nothing for Sludge.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Slag to Charger! That'd fit great and add to the super obscure Action Master legion. I'd buy that in a second!


Sludge... Sludge... Well there's always the Japanese Dino-force Apotosaur. Or Zaur. Or... I know it's a big change in alt-mode but I can kinda imagine Blot working.

I'd wonder if the issue is that the dinosaurs ARE recognizable. It's not just getting Dinobots. It's what you do with them after. Repaints are the name of the game, and customers are practically trained to see a bunch of repainted cars as unique--that's pretty much the entire diecast aisle. I think repainted dinosaurs would be WAY harder to pass off as unique.

Well, Hasbro have been doing lots of (p)retools recently, some of which have been pretty significant - look at Thunderwing/Sky Shadow, Tracks/Wheeljack or FOC Jazz/Sideswipe for examples.

For Snarl, for instance, they could have a set of spikes as an alternate for the backplates (ala the back half of a Kentosaurus) and a remoulded dino-mode head.

The trickiest one would be, funnily enough, Grimlock. T-Rexes are far too famous to simply remould into another dino that won't just be "a slightly different T-Rex" to the LCD.

Okay it's still bad, but I believe that modern Stunticon toys could be be made to be in scale with each other. It's not like the Combaticons where we have a jeep and a space shuttle as limbs.

The main reason Stunticons are so grossly out of scale with each other is because of the Scramble City "base mode" requirement. If you made Motormaster just a truck cab, it'd work out a lot more favorably I think.

Mommy comes home and says "Here, Billy. This is the one you wanted right?"
"No, Mom, that's Slag! I already have him, see. I need to get Snarl, the stegosaurus."

It's not as if said parent is not going to try and get their kid the right toy. You make it seem as if people will go and buy only one figure, and the kid be dammed if he already has it, or it's not the right one.
This is why stores have return policies in the first place.

....The kid will know the difference instantly. That's what reciepts are for! Just return it for the right one. And by-and-large, likely the only time that a parent/adult would be toy shopping for a kid without said kid being with them, would be at X-Mas or for their birthday, or any similar special occasion.


Mommy comes home and says "Here, Billy. This is the one you wanted right?"
"No, Mom, that's Slag! I already have him, see. I need to get Snarl, the stegosaurus."
"Ok, well we'll go back tomorrow and see if they have the right one. ok?"


It's not as if said parent is not going to try and get their kid the right toy. You make it seem as if people will go and buy only one figure, and the kid be dammed if he already has it, or it's not the right one.
This is why stores have return policies in the first place.


I dunno, if I was the parent, I'd probably be like, 'I'm sorry, I'll get the right one next time." And then next time would just be the next time I got them a toy, which could be whenever. I wouldn't go back to swap.

I would. In fact, I remember a couple times as a kid when I got a toy I already had and my parents took me to the store to exchange it.


Same here, If fact I usually got asked "Do you have this one already?" or "Hopefully you don't have this one" when ever I my mom bought one for me, and always kept the receipt if I did.

I'd probably feel bad about a duplicate. Wrong toy though? "Oh, you don't want it? We can give it to your sister."
