my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Hisashi Yuki's posted a teaser silhouette for the Takara version of Devastator:



It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. If they continue the cartoon accuracy thing they've had going for the other Unite Warriors stuff, it's liable to have a lot less painted detail that Hasbro's version...

Yeah I wonder how it will vary.  Slight shade difference possibly.

 

Takara's Encore 20A Devastator had a more yellow green and a more red purple than the normal release.

Yeah that I would like.

 

Maybe a gray face instead of silver.

 

It's curious to me that Devastator is coming before Defensor (unlike in the US) presumably.

 

Does that mean Takara isn't releasing Defensor or is he coming later as they have to develop a motorcycle limb to replace Rook with?  ;)  :D

Even thought their deco will probably be different, I kind of feel like them trying to do this big reveal is a little silly. Because, like us, any Japanese TF fan/collector will already have seen what Devastator looks like, just not the Takara deco.

 

The cat's already out of the bag, you might as well just show us the different coloured collar you've put on him.

I find it interesting that basically all the comments from Japanese collectors on Yuki's tweet is how they're looking forward to seeing the domestic (Japanese) version.  So obviously Yuki is well aware that the teaser is more for any changes they may have made more so than the unveiling of the figure's design itself.

I'm sure they probably painted elbows on everyone and tampoed a Mixmaster a new truck mode.

 

EDIT: But seriously, of course they're saying they want to see the changes. There's nothing else to see! Everyone already knows what the toy looks like.

Yeah, I'll probably only be interested if they tweak little things like that to make for a more cohesive whole, and improve paint detailing and plastic colors where appropriate/necessary. I'm a little bit of a Takara fanboy when they make tasteful improvements to their releases versus our domestic ones (Classics Jazz, for example), but less so when they add weird chrome, or lots of delicate metallic paint that will have small flaws all over the place, or some of the weird animation stuff on the Unite Warriors releases.

They'll revive the old G2 Color Changing gimmick to make Bonecrusher's treads change from green to purple and back.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

They could paint sides facing out in Devastator mode purple and leave the actual treads green if they want to try and do both.

Per a previous BotCon, Cybertron Quickmix began life as a more G1-style cement mixer, but IIRC was changed into the style he was - the same as Titan Mixmaster - because that type was more common in modern Japan. So the idea of pretending New Mixmaster is backwards for more G1-accuracy is kinda funny.

 

(Also funny: Cybertron Quickmix not actually hitting Japanese retail.)

Doesn't the Hasbro deco already kinda try to do that, with the fake "windows" ?
