I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

That said, there is no toy in this set so far that I don't super want.  I think the secret seventh figure is gonna have to be the worst damn thing in the world to make up for this.

I have to agree, I've been aching for each one of these for what seems like an eternity.

 

Impactor turned out really great and the body is a wonderful fit for him.

 

I like the idea of him filling in for any combiner that may need him or merging with the Mayhem guys as an arm and trying to tear the rest of them apart that way.

rotorstorm from blades stormclash

Seems they had everyone planned (even perhaps Impactor) back at BotCon 2015.  Unless they could make a change they probably weren't / aren't able to use any Victorion components as they likely saw them too late (unless Hasbro shared them with them like they apparently shared Onslaught).

Excellent. This looks fantastic. I have the 3P one on pre-order but I may consider nixing that in favor of this.

 

As for the 7th figure also being a CW figure, I'd love them to use the blockiest square figure they have, stripping all the alt-mode kibble from it and making Ambulon.

 

Also, any idea when this is going to go live for sign-up?

It strikes me that the non-Impactor limbs are each a third of two different "sets" - the small Decepticon Targetmasters and the Triggercons. 

 

Maybe the mystery figure is First Aid for Crankcase, or Brawl for Quake, to finish off one of those sets?  

 

I've tried to figure out a Quake color layout from CW Brawl, and I really don't think it works.  Either you're going to have a hilariously patchwork-colored tank or you're going to have a robot that looks nothing like Quake.

Sweet Jeebus, this subscription year is just all kinds of amazing. I'm hoping for a new Crankcase out of First Aid for the secret figure, but that almost feels greedy, like I should accept a lousy Red Wing or something to compensate for all this awesome.

so in response to me suggesting an imaginary terrible awful toy, you offer an idea that you know i, david willis, the hot shot guy, would totally want, and then when i say "yeah actually that'd be great," you're somehow surprised and go on a spiel

Well I pretty much sold on the subscription this year. They pretty much had me with the Mayhem Attack Squad being a unified theme and combiner.  Now you got the logical enemy for them, who's makes great use of  a new toy unique weapon gimmick for his signature look.  Also has the advantage of being a combiner limb  were he has more options for use given all the figures were getting this year and next.  Club nailed me 6 for 6. Now to start guess on the 7th figure.

It occurs to me that now anyone who wanted to make a combiner with Alpha Bravo, Offroad, and Rook can use Impactor as the remaining limb.

If I were in charge of this (which couldn't be further from the truth, but... 8^) I'd make sure Impactor ships first. Then, frame any fiction that goes with them as him hunting down the Mayhem Subscription Squad, catching each one and throwing them in a cell on his ship. Once all five have shipped/been caught, they combine and break free. And maybe kill him. Y'know, for old times' sake. 8^)

They combine, he tears an arm off, takes its place and compells the combiner to beat itself to death using the dismembered arm.

I failed to catch that, but mine has the torn off limb brandished as a weapon, and thus, is far superior. :p

For the second year in a row I was incredibly lukewarm on the TFSS coming out of Botcon. This year I think a lot of it was me already having a Bludgeon and a Spinister I really like and being a little "eh" on the other three, but I think this Impactor may have just pushed me off the fence.

What they should do is just show off the Photoshop job with the tiniest head imaginable so when we get the actual toy the head's size seems luxurious.
