You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I like the 2007 Voyager. It's got an intuitive transformation that accomplishes a a lot and BBOP inherits a lot of the Leader's fiddliness, the only major consolation being he doesn't keep introducing himself.

That leg transformation may be one of the crowning achievements of the 07 Movie line.

Another thing I like about the 07 mold is the detail. I think it wears a premium paint job better than the 2010 mold. The 2010 mold may have more accurate proportions but the detailing is weirdly soft. It's not a very good looking toy.

I have a soft spot for the 2007 leader Optimus mold, not so much the voyager. The HFTD voyager certainly is fiddly, though.

I really love that original Leader Optimus. I know it doesn't represent the movie model as well as the ROTF-and-on Leader at all, but it's more fun as a toy and in absolute terms just a big fun chunky '88-style toy.

The listing at BBTS says Soundwave is the Human Alliance one. I'm not familiar enough with the toy to tell.

 

Maybe I'm the only person, but I really like the the inaccurate deco on ROTF Voyager Megs. It's way more interesting than his actual movie colors. That one was the only movie megs in my collection for a long time.

 

I love that deco. It's not quite the "realistic" weathering you see on some toys, but more of a lurid, comic booky interpretation of weathered metal, and it really works. I gave that toy up when I was aggressively purging toys from my collection, but he's one of the very few I'll probably repurchase.

It really is.  It felt absolutely like a natural progression from Cybertron figures, too.  Like, if there hadn't been a movie, I think we'd still have seen a similar figure with boxes instead of curves.

What did you do to the feet?  If we're talking about the same one, there's not a whole lot to break there unless you were prying out the toes instead of swiveling the bumper half around or something.

That's how mine is.  The springs in the feet can eventually wear out the locking notches that keep the bumper in place, so the feet just pop back with little provocation.

Trying to hide how huge the kibble really is.

 

It's a shame the kibble's not detachable because it's otherwise an excellent representation of that Megatron. I know people have a soft spot for the green, but the movie colors make it easier to appreciate just how good the likeness is.

I *love* the green! It was a perfect 'zombie'/patina color, the shade a robot that's been dead at the bottom of the ocean should be.
 
Still wish we had gotten that version that had crabs and barnacles and things painted on...

 
I...didn't know about that version.

Yup I feel that way about the 07 leader too. I got it in a big bin of toys as a gift, and I was surprised at how fun it is. So I keep it for that and I have BBOP as my model-accurate Prime. I enjoy 07 leader Megs too, but I wouldn't say he's as good of a toy as OP.

A lot of these are good, if obvious, redecos, and it's a decent "greatest hits" lineup of the films. Though I wonder if there's an audience for this stuff anymore. I feel like I've mostly moved on, though some of these are tempting.

 

So we haaaave....

 

-Evasion Mode Optimus in a new deco, in his red and blue colors, but weathered.

-DOTM Deluxe 'bee, only with some kind of Gatling Gun weapon instead of his Mechtech (anyone recognize it?)

-The long-awaited ROTF Voyager Megs movie-accurate redeco. (This is attempt #3 at a release, right? Watch this get cancelled, too).

-A DOTM Voyager Shockwave re-release? Maybe a metallic deco?

-HFTD Deluxe Ironhide, probably in some kind of premium deco.

-What looks like DOTM Deluxe Ratchet repainted into his Movie 1/2 colors, with a tiny pistol instead of his Mechtech (again, anyone recognize it?)

-A DOTM Deluxe Soundwave re-release, minus accessories? (Yay for rarity, boo for lack of weapon)

-Some use of the ROTF Starscream mold, which I'm guessing will be in Movie 1 colors

-A voyager Grimlock with a mini Optimus rider?

-A Voyager Strafe, also with a mini Bumblebee rider

-ROTF Buster Prime, only with his DOTM Abs retool, a single sword from the Asia Release, and the faceplate on.

 

 

Mmkay, having been obsessed with Movie toys for quite some time, here' s my attempt to answer some questions and clarify:

 

Evasion Mode Prime with COVETED FACEPLATE WOO! There were only, like, 2 versions of of this mold with faceplates that were hell to get, one at WalMart and one that was "Rusty Ver." in Japan. This one has a faceplate as well as a more accurate deco versus the other battle damaged versions that just white-washed him. So... yay!

 

Looks like a weapon off of one of the DOTM Roadbuster or Topspin toys. Could be new though.

 

I hope not, I'm def getting this one!

 

Looks like movie-accurate deco.

 

Yeah, minus accessory too. This mold was crap. Pass.

 

Weapons definitely from DOTM Deluxe Topspin.

 

HA Soundwave re-release minus Lazerbeak and Gould dude.... and with A NEW HEAD! The original HA SW had a visor, this one it seems like doesn't. Might totes get this one too.

 

Looks like it, and it does NOT look like they will be using the pre-tooling with the fold-open launchers; they still look like a solid piece with the forearms.

 

A deluxe Strafe (there was no Voyager version).


Edited by Megaplex Prime, 14 October 2016 - 09:43 AM.

I'm not Antifa, I'm not violent. But try to look at it from my perspective for 5 seconds. I see 1 side who wants my hugging blood. Literally. And I see another standing in opposition of them, clearly willing to take any stance they need to to stop them. Then I see a bunch of people hemming and hawing and wringing their hands about the whole thing.

 

Who am I supposed to feel more protected by?

It's the same head, just with a drastically different paint job.
