It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

Nothing phenomenal, but new pics on the landing page.  The links don't take you to the new pics, but the ones they show cropped are really nice.

Scourge in particular looks great, and shows that it was a good idea to make his Head Master's limbs white as they don't read as a continuation of his head, so the actual front regular Scourge part of his head reads as Scourge more than the Hasbro one does with all the extra blue behind it.

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.

Galvatron and Shockwave look terrible, of course, and Scourge and Blurr have been discussed endlessly already (and Randy's point about the contrast behind Scourge's head is a good one), but the thing I keep being surprised by is how much I love Takara Hardhead's colors. There's something about that warm brown-grey, and although in usual Takara style there's less value contrast between the grey and green, it's not so reduced as to make the whole thing one unbroken value. He looks really nice (except for the loss of the toy head).

It seems to be a Targetmaster thing, for whatever reason.

 

(Yes, that means the Targetmasters are the ones who don't come with transforming guns.)

Baseless speculation, but perhaps given Takara's general attachment to slavishness, Headmaster toys of characters who weren't previously Headmasters might be a harder sell in their market? Lack of the accessories helps keeps the cost down relevant to the others.

It's the Headmasters' revenge on having to give up their heads in Rebirth while the Targetmasters only had to give up their guns.  So now the Headmasters have extra vehicles / animals that they can flaunt in front of those racist Targetmasters.

So $45 is way too much to pay for that little Megatron that comes with a miscolored Galvatron body accessory, right? That's what I keep trying to tell myself anyway...

The way Galvatron's head is painted reminds me of Prime Megatron.

That head has always reminded me of Prime Megs, although I guess it's just a Galvatron head with stubby horns. Honestly, painted with the contrast between the "crown" and the rest of the head, that makes a pretty okay Galvatron head by itself, if the mask is as awful as everyone says.

 

Didn't we think the whole "helmet" area was painted on the Japanese one? Were we wrong? Did everyone else know that and not me? Did it change?

I didn't realize it was basically Galvatron's head just smooshed into Titanmaster-friendly dimensions. 

 

To be fair I'm not buying it and haven't looked that closely, so maybe that revelation is well-known already.

We could see there was some purple color, but it was never fully shown what the head looked like transformed without the crown atop it.

Galvatron and Shockwave look terrible, of course, 

 

I don't think so. A darker purple would have been nice but Takara's versions have much needed paint that Hasbro's doesn't have. I dislike the amount of clear plastic that Hasbro Shockwave has. I also prefer the warmer grey plastic of Takara Shockwave.

*Sigh* I really wanted to buy Takara's Galvatron, but I just don't think I can convince myself anymore.  I've gone back and forth on whether I could get used to it, but ultimately, that shade of purple just does not read as my Galvatron, so I'm opting out.  I do love what they've done with the non-purple areas though.  I suppose that my ideal version would be Takara's legs, feet, tank treads and head coupled with Hasbro's darker purple.  Oh well.  :(

Frankly, the lighter and bluer and more desaturated the purple, the more my brain wants me to think it's Marvel Galvatron.  It's a first impression that absolutely doesn't withstand scrutiny, but that mental echo is there nonetheless.

My ideal Galvatron would be Hasbro's Galvatron with the gray treads from TT's Galvatron. Then TT's Megatron/Nucleon, although I'm undecided about which version to use as the head. I might lean towards TT's, but only if I could manage to remove that lavender without messing up any other paint.

 

Really, I would be very tempted to buy TT's Galvy just to take the treads and the head, and then throw the rest away. Unfortunately, the treads are attached with a pin joint, and I have not been successful at disassembling those joints without wrecking everything around it. Anyone else getting really annoyed with how prevalent those pins are becoming in newer figures?

This is an easy enough pass, but I hope the eventual (likely?) Galvatron II isn't an exclusive of some sort.

The artwork is decent but why doesn't Takara treat Transformers fiction seriously? Whats with the cartoony Rattrap and Optimus Primal?
