I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Not till I taste the corn

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Just don't go beyond the rows.

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

Naw, more likely an Amazon exclusive.  That's been the main outlet for Hasbro Asia exclusives like the Protectobot need-to-keep-those-name-trademarks sets.

I don't see any difference with all other Platinum Editions ever.

Hasbro USA typically announced them months after we learned about them.

Hasbro has a lock on the name Strafe.  I chalk this up to a mistake.

Yeah, that's not even Hasbro copy (and they've reused it from the "movie-accurate" Dinobot set). You can see in the packaging stock photos on Kapow that it's still Grimlock, Snarl, Strafe, Dinobot Slug, and Slog.

Agreed on the new head sculpts, especially since Swoop now looks like some kind of proto-Seeker. I'll keep this on the back burner in case the money becomes free.

Memories of the day at work we had a problem with an ROTF toy return and I tried in vain to explain to a manager what a Voyager Megatron meant when he was taking it as the character name in a search.

Yeah, when it comes right down to it I do like some of these molds, but I don't like any of them that much and they'd just be placeholders while I keep dreaming of something better that will probably never happen.

If I got these guys I'm basically deciding I don't want more g1 accurate Dinobots. Which I'm ok with because these are really nice. I just don't get why the platinum mark up is THIS high.

Then again, I don't have numbers to compare against previous platinum box sets because why would I. You'd think 110 dollars would be plenty, but I don't know. I really want these guys though.

I have the SDCC versions, and I see them more as placeholders, just like these. I fully believe Hasbro will eventually give us a set of G1 Generation Dinobots, but maybe not for another 4 or 5 years. People didn't think we'd ever get a G1 Devastator, but we finally did. It takes time, and its gotta to fit with their plans and the market. These are all really good figures, Grimlock, Strafe, and Snarl are all really close to their g1 counterparts in their basic designs and transformations, and their movie-ish designs aren't the worst as the knight motif works for them and they aren't so much 'piles of metal'. They do a fairly good job of walking the line between movie design and 'generations' design. So yeah, they may eventually get replaced but till then they'll have a pretty decent display life.
