Theres possibly a transformer-collecting rick hopping the multiverse that has all the fan vote options available through the years.

@  unluckiness : (21 July 2018 - 10:38 PM)

I have the green one and it's more or less okay. One side has louder clicks but it was like that form the get go

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 05:23 PM)

Well, his gold isn't quite the color I associate with GPS and I see little, if any swirling in it. But hip ratchets in gold plastic that loudly clicked once only to be suddenly silenced. Hrmm. Messing with it now, one leg has no ratcheting and the other ratchets at something like 80 degrees apart.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

I like that figure. :(

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2018 - 03:37 PM)

Please no GPS on HFTD Sea Spray...

@  Darth Gonzo : (21 July 2018 - 03:32 PM)

That moment when you realize GoBots is being talked about more then Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 July 2018 - 02:11 PM)

Anyone have experience with HFTD Seaspray? I just bought a used one (for a buck!) and all his hip ratchets broke on first movement. Does he just generally have fragile ratchets or is GPS starting?

Guys, SSSHHHHH. Megatron is passed out right over there, and dude is a MEAN drunk. Don't wake him up.

@  Paladin : (20 July 2018 - 02:04 PM)

*checks Hasbro's offerings* so, never. :(

@  unluckiness : (20 July 2018 - 10:00 AM)

Megatron is hammered! Now, I, Starscream am leader of the Decepticons!

@  wonko the sane? : (20 July 2018 - 09:47 AM)

And megatron is so confused as to why no one is shooting at him anymore that he starts binge drinking.

Grimlock eats them for lunch.

@  Paladin : (20 July 2018 - 08:09 AM)

Optimus wants to free the Minicons. Ultra Magnus says it infringes states' rights.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 July 2018 - 08:07 AM)

So... the nicest beings in the universe are fighting with each other?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 July 2018 - 08:01 AM)

No Decepticons. It's Autobots Civil War.

@  Gryllid : (20 July 2018 - 07:55 AM)

New York Comic Con is in October, maybe there?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:49 AM)

So.. thus far, Hasbro only revealed Autobots for Siege. Any ideas which show they will reveal the Decepticons at?

@  Nevermore : (20 July 2018 - 05:44 AM)

So where did the "Stege" logo come from? All I can find is Sipher posting it an making fun of it. Where did that inconvenient version originate?

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 11:53 PM)

True. But it was due to Transformers' use of the name that Saban at the time couldn't use it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 11:38 PM)

But that's not necessarily a reference, just an attempt to use "Technobable" name.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 10:57 PM)

It's not Power Rangers, but Saban's VR Troopers was originally going to be titled "Cybertron".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 09:26 PM)

@paladin Energon would be too obvious. That's why I like Ore-13. It's not overt.. but still a nice nod.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2018 - 08:05 PM)

the original Sentai called it "Enetron." all they have to change is ONE LETTER.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 06:26 PM)

@saberblade True.. But I don't know.. I just want something simple like the "Energy source" in Beast Morphers to be Ore-13 or something like that.

@  Sabrblade : (19 July 2018 - 05:41 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: Operation Overdrive did have a weapon called the "Transtech Armor" ;)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

*sigh* This is going to be a long subline.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 July 2018 - 04:49 PM)

I already hate the overuse of "STEGE".

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2018 - 04:16 PM)

I just want Power Ranger refferenes in TF and Vice versa now.

@  Onyxstrike : (19 July 2018 - 11:32 AM)

I think Hasbro might be after more than just my money this time around with these reveals.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 02:39 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk Thanks for clarifying.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 12:34 PM)

@Otaku, most people were oblivious. The smart ones did their emergency shopping the day before, so there wasn't much left anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 09:37 AM)

@wonko Only happened a few times and I don't remember the exact details, but yeah.

@  Otaku : (18 July 2018 - 08:06 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Is that really the same thing? I mean, it is if the people were casually shopping and oblivious to the danger to them or the employees of the store, but if they were desperately trying to get needed supplies themselves... or am I just supposed to be smart enough to know you wouldn't have brought it up if it wasn't the former? >_<

@  wonko the sane? : (18 July 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Okay, what? I've had to explain why the TV wouldn't work when the power is out to children, but never to an adult in their right mind.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:44 AM)

*When I worked at the cable call center, some people wondered why their TV wouldn't work when there was an outage...

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2018 - 07:43 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2018 - 03:11 AM)

We had people still trying to shop while we were being pushed by state police to shut the store down due to flooding. The police finally had to help herd them out.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:36 PM)

Or working for an airline and people complaining about not being able to take off in severe weather, and expecting us to know when the bad weather will end. *points at window*

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:34 PM)

Outages/fire alarms are fun when you work retail and people complain that they can't keep shopping.

@  Echowarrior : (17 July 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Outages occasionally happened at the fulfillment center I used to work at. Never fun.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:51 PM)

Apparently the early shift (i.e. those who didn't participate in the walkout) were sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for power to return, while the late shift couldn't even enter the building.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 04:18 PM)

Oh, wow. I thought the news about the website outtage would have been the topper, but that pretty much wins.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

Whoopsie.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

First the union called for a two-day strike yesterday, and then today the entire city where the Amazon warehouse I work at is located apparently had a power outage.

I would like something to this extent in any case. Even with the MP out there.

 

 

 

A redeco of Combiner Wars Prime with a trailer would work for me. The mold is already designed to combine with stuff.

What's that? Energon Optimus you say? WILL DO!

 

 

 

 

I hope it's true and I hope he includes Minimus Ambus in some capacity.

It'll be a sticker.

I care way more about Powered Convoy than Ultra Magnus, so if this toy is really going to happen, I'd want the hypothetical inner-robot to be a white cab Optimus that can be repainted into a blue cab Optimus. Minimus Ambus wouldn't really work for that.

I know this is actually completely irrelevant but seeing the stand-alone art of Ultra Magnus on the cover of this week's issue of MTMTE was making me think of Ultra Magnus Toys in the days leading up to this rumor.  We don't get a lot of stand-alone individual dude pin-up comic book cover art that isn't somebody's packaging illustration.  But it's by Cahill (not Jimenez or some other mainstream comics guy) and it's a bit early for that sort of thing if the toy is real, which obviously disqualifies it, but it had gotten me thinking about an Ultra Magnus toy all the same.

Definitely hoping for an IDW Magnus with no inner robot. I don't want the vehicle mode or big robot to suffer in any way that including a smaller figure being able to fit inside somehow would.

I doubt they'll bother at all. They're not 100% on doing comic designs straight up. I think Brainstorm might be the most recent figure that matches his comic version so well. I'd count Jetfire, but we don't know if his new design is based on the toy or the other way around.

I think Jetfire is definitely a case of the comic being based on the toy.

I'd like to see a heavy IDW influence, ideally including an Ambus, but I don't know how you really make that work without compromising the larger whole. I mean, who wants another G1 Ultra Magnus? I mean, that guy was rubbish, right? It's a dude in a thing, and not in the good way like IDW. I love him, BUT.

 

It's 2014. Can it be done? Can you design a little guy who fits into some framework made out of a larger guy who can still transform and Not Be Awful, in all possible modes?

Given MP Magnus is already ignoring that Magnus is a white Optimus in armor, I'd be surprised if a separate team decided to make a second modern Ultra Magnus toy that also doesn't incorporate it, but almost no other recent Magnus toy can be bothered, so I won't be shocked if it's just a generic one-piece guy.

 

And then I won't buy it and I'm sure Hasbro will still be able to sleep at night.

I do. I love robots that combine with stuff to form bigger robots, and modern Ultra Magus toys haven't done that for me.

Compared to a leader class Magnus, an in-scale Minimus would be Minicon sized anyway.

Given the fact that we have not seen or heard about this at any convention yet I'm going to have to side with the fact that someone made a mistake or is screwing with us.  As It would rock and be a nice addition to my collection I'm not going to hold my breath.

IDW comics felt like Ultra Magnus needed an inner robot after all, something they had not touched on at all in the 7 or so years of the comic's run, but they also didn't want Ultra Magnus to actually be Ultra Magnus so when the real Ultra Magnus died early in the war, his name was secretly passed down to other guys who wore the Magnus armor to continue being Ultra Magnus. The current Ultra Magnus is a new guy called Minimus Ambus.
