I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

@  siccoyote : (18 January 2018 - 04:31 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 January 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Rent a space and do a webcast?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

They could just do a panel at RI ComicCon or something.

@  abates : (16 January 2018 - 05:51 PM)

I wonder how they'll do the Hall of Fame this year without a convention to hold the award ceremony at.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 01:21 PM)

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

Scourge is awful. Alpha Trion and Mindwipe are cool however. Hope Chromedome has a body more based on his new comic version's detailing than the old toy.

I wouldn't call the Scourge awful myself, just kinda dull. Noticeable more so than the last one.

I kinda hope the opposite for Chromedome. The Fun Pub version scratched that itch successfully for me. I'd love one more with a classic G1 vibe.

Whilst I am pleased that the new titanmaster Chromedome is based on his IDW self more than his G1 version, reading back through that topic makes me realise that this is likely the reason Hasbro dropped HunterPR.

 

Which is a shame.

The fact that these are deco sheets surely suggest that these particular Leaks originate from the factories, no?

Discussed as a possibility by the leaker here. (look back and forward through the pages, all of the leaks in that topic come from this guy)

 

The deco sheet thing makes sense, though.

-ZacWilliam, he's a must buy for me either way though, as that was a favorite toy of mine way back then...

 

 

I would definitely call it awful. The sculpt is genuinely ugly and the transformation seems to be as boring as humanly possible. 

 

Something like this just has zero value to me. I mean jesus look at those wings. They didn't even try to get a good silhouette out of that, they're just hard rectangle shapes floating on his back above the waste resembling more some kind of tiny cape than anything else. CW toys had to transform into 4 different modes with a huge connect in their chest and still managed to atleast have good dynamic shapes.

 

On Chromedome's case, I find his G1 toy's body design to be kind of generic and nondescript in the worst way, giving him those same boring proportions and shapes would would be a easy way to turn me off, so if they atleast used proportions more akin to the IDW design I'd already be happier.

That Alpha Trion can't be a Hasbro product... it's got too much color. And I'm not trying to be facetious, they just don't use that much paint anymore.

 

Edit: I'll be extremely happy to be proven wrong.

So, an articulated version of his G1 toy. Par for the course for the current design team, it seems.

From Primes art I can tell it's just going to be solid slabs of different color plastic. The Alpha pic/art shows very distinct and different colors on the chest shoulders and pelvis... I don't know how you could do that without paint.

Scourge and Blurr make me kind of afraid to see the Hot Rod update as I no longer expect it to be a great improvement over the weak Classics mold, rather a poor attempt at incorporating a headmaster into g1 animation design. I wouldn't mind if it was heavily toy influenced as HotRod was by far the best looking of the movie toys, but I doubt it.
