@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:04 PM)

I'm actually rather fond of the phrase "You are being decieved," to be honest.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:03 PM)

"You are being decieved."

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:57 PM)

"Hope is not real"- Scourge, from IDW comic Autobots Wage Their Battle

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:50 PM)

We can only hope.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

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!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

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

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

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.

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).
