They just see human clutter on their space and decide to do something about it.

@  Echowarrior : (28 June 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Dogs realize that people give them things, and think the people are gods. Cats realize that people give them things, and think that they are the gods. Gods care not for toys on shelves or tables.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 June 2017 - 06:41 PM)

Caring and Seeing are two very different things!

@  Bass X0 : (28 June 2017 - 06:27 PM)

But they just don't care.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Oh they do.... they doo!

@  Bass X0 : (28 June 2017 - 06:15 PM)

Why do cats see a shelf or table but not see all the toys standing on it already?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2017 - 06:04 PM)

Everything the fur covers is their domain.

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 05:05 PM)

(everything)

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 05:04 PM)

Cats know what's theirs.

@  Miss Kayla Kaon : (28 June 2017 - 04:57 PM)

It's amazing how in less then 24 hours of having a cat they seem to take over the house.

@  Bass X0 : (28 June 2017 - 04:31 PM)

Can you see the energon? ......... Is it over here? ...... Oh, over there! ....... You've found it!

@  Noideaforaname : (28 June 2017 - 03:15 PM)

It's not a "stop and ask the audience for help every 5 seconds" show, if that's what you mean.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 03:15 PM)

(but that might just be because I haven't watched Nick Jr in years)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It seems more like a "regular" kids' show than something Nick Junior level

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 02:45 PM)

Also one of the villains is voiced by Tim Curry

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 02:44 PM)

I haven't seen every ep, but it's pretty cute from what I did see. A bit more danger than your average Nick Jr show

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:37 PM)

That sort of pre-school Nick Jr. flavor is an immediate turn-off for me, so tell me how it surpasses that

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:36 PM)

anyone a fan of Rescue Bots? Sell me on it

@  Dracula : (28 June 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Been catching up on TF shows I missed or ignored (currently RID'15). Considering Rescue Bots, but it's like 100 episodes

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:19 PM)

There's a world of difference b/t choosing it for yourself and trying to force others to do the same.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:18 PM)

Exactly. My friend's married to an omnivore and she feeds her dogs a regular diet.

@  Paladin : (28 June 2017 - 01:17 PM)

my only problem is when people try to make their PETS vegetarian. it does not work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 01:15 PM)

*sigh* One of my best RL friends is a vegetarian. She endures so much crap for that when she's fine with other people's diets.

@  Echowarrior : (28 June 2017 - 01:00 PM)

I have nothing against vegetarians, or vegans. I just hope they have nothing against me being an omnivore.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 June 2017 - 09:04 AM)

I just mentally mixed several thread titles together and now I want to know what Pete's personal canon would be like if he was a movieverse character

@  RichardT1977 : (28 June 2017 - 07:39 AM)

(BTW this risks drifting into restricted topic discussion)

@  RichardT1977 : (28 June 2017 - 07:38 AM)

It's pre-emptive defensive offensiveness against the offensiveness they assume vegetarians are going to have about the eating of animals. In other words, they're saying "Stop making me feel guilty!"

@  Rycochet : (28 June 2017 - 07:25 AM)

As a vegetarian it always amuses me how offended people seem to be by the existence of vegetarian food and vegetarians and vegans in general.

@  MEDdMI : (28 June 2017 - 05:11 AM)

I prefer some veggie patties over regular burgers.

@  SpectrumBelle : (28 June 2017 - 03:07 AM)

vegan ice cream is actually pretty good

@  Paladin : (27 June 2017 - 05:14 PM)

it's summer; the release schedule is packed. between the minions this week, Spiderman next week & then the Apes things have to move fast.

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 04:58 PM)

nope, i was wrong. i don't know why one site mislead me but the cinema's own site says its still going to be shown later.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 June 2017 - 04:49 PM)

Seriously? Didn't it just drop? Why are they pulling it so fast?

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thursday is the last day my local cinema is showing it so I guess I'll have to go soon to watch it too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2017 - 04:33 PM)

Abandon all hope, ye who buy tickets here.

@  Telly : (27 June 2017 - 04:31 PM)

off to see the last knight. wish me luck!

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 12:19 PM)

I wish more third party knock off makers would realise the same thing.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I have to wonder if they just realized that their product sucked.

@  unluckiness : (27 June 2017 - 09:52 AM)

Can't say. It could just be a response to the lackluster performance of thefirst try convincing them it was a lost cause. Or Skullhugger.

@  Rycochet : (27 June 2017 - 09:28 AM)

I have to wonder if PWTToo actually told the non Alvarez former Hasbro employees that the plan was to straight rip off pretenders before getting them involved, it's pretty telling that none of them seemed to be around when they made their second attempt to make it work.

@  Robowang : (27 June 2017 - 08:28 AM)

Doze Nuts

@  unluckiness : (27 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

I don't think I'd mind them making clear ripoffs of Pretenders if they didn't keep hyping their creativity up.

@  Bass X0 : (27 June 2017 - 07:43 AM)

No, because I don't buy third party knock offs.

@  lastmaximal : (27 June 2017 - 07:25 AM)

You must have been disappointed that Play With This Too didn't work out.

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.


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

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.
