@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Telly : (24 May 2016 - 12:26 AM)

is the christmas/holiday special in the latest mtmte trade? or atleast mtmte's segment of that comic

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2016 - 05:12 PM)

He tried to introduce himself once, but then he was compelled to kidnap himself and nobody's seen him since.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

And personally, I prefer each character to look distinctive and unique, which is why I am very happy about Hasbro's recent efforts to add value to redecos with new heads, different transformations, vehicle mode bits and the like. That's all I ever really asked for!

When was the last time Hasbro did a repaint that was deluxe or bigger. I mean just repaint no new parts or alternate parts that were always part of the mold, that was also a different character from a previous use of the mold...

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.

Fallback? Deep Dive? Banzai-Tron? Strafe?

I think pretty much everything after that was either the same character or had a (p)remold.

They were all tail end of the movie line right? Wait were they before or after Classics and Friends Thundercracker?

Deep Dive was around the same time, and Strafe right before IIRC.

Do you mean the DotM Comettor that came in a 2-pack with a Prime, Walmart exclusive? That Comettor is a deluxe.

Hmm, apparently I managed to read that as "bigger than a deluxe."

Walmart had some DotM exclusives in addition to Comettor... such as G2 Gobot Sideswipe.

All the Wal-Mart Deluxe toys were same bot repaints so they don't count. Comettor does but he only came packer with a Voyager as an exclusive that Wal-Mart probably asked for. I bet the same thing happened with the Cybergliph Target toys too. The two biggest retailers said the wanted something exclusive so Hasbro jive out some easy yet interesting repaints.

So when did Hasbro do a mass market, not the same bot repaint in deluxe or bigger, outside the movie line?

I'm omitting the movie line because retailers demanded so much of it from Hasbro they they almost had to do repaints just to keep them happy.

Universe 2.0 - SilverBolt, Stormcloud, Prowl etc

Generations - Red Alert, Thundercracker, Bumblebee (but that's the same character and he doesn't really count)

RTS - Fallback

Classics and Friends was never repainted. Silverstreak was, and the Classics and Friends Seeker mold was used and Thundercracker twice before it's use in Generations.

The lightbar and it's placement was even different from Henkei to Generations Red Alert, effectively making the backpack engine thing unmountable in robot mode (other than the gun).
