Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

I knew that my father was getting old when he finally posted a facebook status that was clearly a search term.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

could've been worse then :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:03 PM)

So when he tried to pry into his daughter's love life, he ended up posting numerous search terms relating to "hot boy".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:02 PM)

I once saw this comedy episode wherein a dad mistakenly thought the status bar on Facebook was the search bar.

I like how that game had all kinds of transformation attacks. Some of them may not have made much sense, but they looked cool.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Menasor kinda did that in the Devastation video game. He'd split into the Stunticons and run you over.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 August 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Megatron screams "decepticons attack", the constructicons form devastator, who then screams "Multi-vector assault mode" and breaks back into invdividual bots to attack seperately.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Imagine: an armada battle between Omega Supreme and Tidal Wave.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Some TF creator should apply it to multi-component Transformers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:19 PM)

"Multi-vector assault mode" is such a cool term from Star Trek: Voyager.

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 August 2018 - 04:24 PM)

Most things would be pretty cold after two hundred and seventy degrees.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 01:15 PM)

Given the weather we've been having this summer, anything under 30 is a friggen god send.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2018 - 12:53 PM)

Surely "slightly under 30" doesn't pass for "cold" unless you live in the tropics.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:20 PM)

... or we're finally facing the end game of global warming, but no one will care by then.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

Generally speaking, if the number when referring to temperature is less than 50, you're probably not talking to an american.

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 11:13 AM)

86 F

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:07 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 06:41 AM)

oh wow... even with humidity today it won't break 30. It's going to be so... COLD...

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:58 AM)

@Msol Make sure he shares. My bro hardly ever let me play with his TFs. I even offered to let him play with my dolls/ponies, too.

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:37 AM)

:p My brother was a bigger pain as a kid. As adults, I'm the bigger pain now.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 August 2018 - 06:31 AM)

Congrats man, and good luck. My personal experience is that little girls are pains in the ass clean through 30.

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 10:59 PM)

Yup yup. Now my 2.5yo will need to learn to share all his TFs...

@  MEDdMI : (07 August 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Msol Really? Congratulations! :)

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 08:48 PM)

Ack! We're having a girl!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 August 2018 - 06:16 PM)

It did include a Transmetal 2 hyena with a giant sawblade in his back.

@  unluckiness : (07 August 2018 - 08:56 AM)

but does it BURN BURN BURN TO THE GROUND?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Okay, I don't buy doubles and I would have gone after a dozen of those.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2018 - 10:32 PM)

I still think Beast Wars should have included a Transmetal Maximal hyena with a motorcycle-based semi-third mode, of Junkion descent, named Lafftrax

@  Pennpenn : (06 August 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Well if they did the same thing as Roadbattletrapslash (and if they didn't what's the point?) it'd be two new molds, but still.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 August 2018 - 01:08 PM)

I'm surprised that Hasbro wound up scheduling Frenzy for release in the Bumblebee movie line.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 12:50 PM)

Dunno. There's been recent Rewind toys, and Eject is just a quick repaint. Flywheels would mean a whole new mold.

@  Cyoti : (05 August 2018 - 08:24 AM)

Flywheels is probably in the same queue at Hasbro as Eject.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Energon Redux.

@  Foffy : (05 August 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Grand Slamwich

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:51 PM)

So we can get proper Flywheels and maybe Grand Slam? I mean, I'm sure if they did it as a full range we'd have an Optimus in there somewhere (with Roller pants? I dunno).

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:48 PM)

I'd like to see them do more duocon type toys later on. Sort of like how they did Brainstorm as a Headmaster on his own before releasing an entire range of them.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2018 - 08:03 AM)

The first time I saw him, they were both on the shelf, and I passed on roadtrap cause I wasn't overtly impressed with the design. Grabbed battleslashe, read the instructions... ahhh, it's a duocon. Then didn't see the little blue git again until yesterday.

@  Shrug : (04 August 2018 - 07:40 AM)

I know! The store I go to the most got around 5 cases of Wave 2 legends in March, so I was not worried about getting the duo. After some recent hunting though, I've managed to find 3 Battleslashes in my entire city and no Roadtraps. 

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2018 - 09:42 PM)

Still, I'm glad I managed to find him again. I saw him once months ago and have been looking since.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2018 - 08:50 PM)

No kidding roadtraps instructions are bad. I actually had to look it up.

@  unitremover : (03 August 2018 - 07:08 PM)

I'd recommend trying to find an alternate way to transform and store away Battleslash's arms in combined mode though, the perscribed method ain't great imo

@  unitremover : (03 August 2018 - 07:07 PM)

They can be at first, especially Roadtrap since his instructions are really bad, but after a few times back and forth they're not too complex.

I love the rigged Mattel Electronics football game.  Fits right in with the Walkman cassette player from the first movie.

Ok, i saw an advanced screening. There's... five bonus scenes at the credits (I think it's five but I might be thinking they were part of the actual movie before the credits. I list five) so wait until the very, very end of everything.

General thought, rather emotional. My friend, who's a DC fan and didn't watch the first movie (gasp!) said it was forced (jerk). While I thought there were smarmy moments, I still got emotional anyway at two parts.

Ask me anything.

Its definitely more emotional but I really like this crew. A couple of the jokes didn't work for me but maybe 9/10 did.
Maybe not quite as good as the first but it's close.
Music never landed as well with me this time either. Im still gonna buy the cd again if there is one though.

I actually didn't like the abundance of drama. Everybody kept with the theme so it got tired for me. I still teared up with one of them though.

Honestly up there as one of my favourite Marvel films. In my opinion it's more developed than the first.

While it does retread some tropes, the plot itself is different enough to feel special and it brings a lot of new stuff to the table that develops both the team and the galaxy as a whole.

It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Long story short, it wasn't as good as the first, especially in the first half which was over indulgent with silliness. Fortunately it tempered out by the second half and became fully engrossing. I'd give it 8/10.


Ok Spoiler question: Was Stalones group at the end supposed to be someone? I'm not familiar with the comics.

I dunno.  The intro scene was easily the most entertained that I've been at an MCU film.

 

Some of it seemed very forced at times, but overall, I really liked this film and would definitely go and see it in the cinema again.

I never thought I'd say this about any of those characters, but holy crap, can we get that movie right now? Stallone at age 70 still looks like he could smash a brick wall with his chin and walk away, whistling.

I've read more than a few of the older books, enough that Martinex, Charlie-27, Nikki, and Starhawk (obviously) were easy to figure out. Really loved seeing Krugarr there, I'd be delighted if that guy earned another cameo in Doctor Strange. Who was the head though, was that Mainframe? It's been a while and some of the details are a bit foggy. The original books weren't particularly interesting and I didn't stick with them for long, I think I enjoyed them more when I was a kid. But the cameos still left me giddy.

 

What an exuberant movie, too. And they hit a lot of the right dramatic notes! With me, anyway. 

I've said for years that "Brandy" by Looking Glass is the perfect song. Validation of this magnitude is going to make me difficult to live with for the next week or so.

Saw it last night. No, it wasn't as good as the first (which might be in my personal top 3 all-time). Yes, it was still excellent and a film I'll be more than happy to see multiple times. I'm taking my sons to the matinee Sunday, and was excited for that as I was walking out of the theater last night.

 

It was exciting. It was engaging. It was funny. It was emotional. I cared about these characters.

 

And holy balls, that Stan Lee cameo. All the wide-eyed, cheer-stifling, finger pointing at that cameo.

I thought it was good. Not as good as the original. Much sloppier storytelling and script here.

Also, I'm really hating these sequels where they take all agency away from the characters. This story felt like the Guardians reading to events happening around them, rather than them having a say in their own story. It really makes a difference in the feeling of the story. I did like the change in theme this time around...
