What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

All I'm saying is that a new mold each - and limited other new tooling - for two of the most popular Combiners from G1 is not really the same as two full new molds - neither of which could really be reused - plus numerous new heads and weapons for a popular non-G1 combiner.

Is it possible? Sure. Is it likely? I would say no.

Star Saber being the most popular guy from that series, and he's only had a few candy toys and the fan-voted Masterpiece since the original.

I'm not saying that Victory isn't popular, but I wouldn't hasten to assume that it's moreso than G1.

 

I'm not saying it's more so then G1, just that I don't think we can say for sure if Liokaizer is less popular then other G1 combiners; as Victory seems to be the most popular of their three exclusive series.

True enough. And, sure, Liokaiser is, from what I've seen, one (er, six) of the most popular Victory characters. But, again, two more-or-less non-reusable* new Deluxes for one combiner seems a bit out-there even for Takara.

 

*unless they figured out some way to muddle them into the Monstructor/Dinoforce torso guys, in which case I would fall to my knees and pledge my service to Takara forevermore.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

No, but Liokaiser had a far larger role in Victory than Defensor did in the G1 cartoon.

Star Saber bad his Masterpiece toy, Robot Masters, and GT. Plus Wing Saber's existence is thanks to TakaraTomy. It seems that Takara tries to stick him in whenever they can. I'd say the only reason we don't see him more is because most lines are developed for both Western and Eastern audiences. And his existence isn't very well known out of Asia.

So anything Liokaiser, a very popular character from the same series, is not completely out of the realm of possibility with all the other stuff we've seen from Unite Warriors.

I'm gonna be honest, I love the deco for Computicon so much, that even if the individual robots looked butt ugly with G1 CARTOON ACCURACY NO MATTER THE COST paint apps, I wouldn't even care, I'd just leave it combined all the time.

Not to split hairs re: Liokaiser, but isn't Victory considered G1? To Japan, G1 is, I believe, everything from the original series through Operation Combination. So a Japanese fan of G1 might be open to later stuff like Victory (given the winner of the fan vote...and yes: it does make me sad that fans over here would not vote to create something from our 1989, say, a MP Sky Hammer. :D). (Hey, Sky Hammer appeared in anime form too...in that dream I had about Sky Hammer...)

If you can judge from Takara's general output, even including their wholly domestic lines, there's just not as much interest in the later years of G1 there. Yes, they eventually got around to a handful of later characters in SCF, for example (including Liokaiser, even), but mostly it's the same as it is here - '84-'86 over and over, with the occasional later nod (largely in the form of Star Saber).

 

I think it's a fool's game to put money down that Takara wouldn't make a new Leozack or Jarrguar for UW at this point, but I don't think there's actually a ton of domestic love for that stuff.

 

(Much like this Computron situation, I literally only care about the thing they wouldn't be including, which is the insane Sky Lynx Deathsaurus, so I don't have a dog in this fight either.)

There's a group photo out there of the robot modes of these guys, but I'm on mobile so I can't copypaste properly.

They look about what I'd expect: acceptible blocks of colour with some meaningful detail, no blue face on Scattershot, Afterburner is frustratingly the same red as everyone else, and there's no Scrounge included.

They look far better than I'd have ever expected, but there's still a fair few naff things carried over from the cartoon, like the aforementioned non-blue Scattershot face.

Man, that Lightspeed head blends a lot better in colour. Pity about the lack of silver stripes, though.
Oh, and at least now there's a use for single-release Scattershot: junker heads!
Dunno how I feel about Afterburner, though; I wanted him in orange, but I like this colour contrast a lot. I wonder how hard it would be to swap Takarafterburner's white and trans-blue parts onto Hasbrafterburner...
