Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

Thank you my friend. I hope so too.

@  Maruten : (14 April 2018 - 06:58 PM)

Sorry to hear that, man. Hope things turn around and you have a great time at the con.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 06:24 PM)

Ugh I have had a terrible week. My step mom goes to the hospital with high heart rate then has elevated blood sugar once they fixed her heart flutter. Then she is released last night and snaps her ankle bone so she needs to stay at her aunts till it is healed. Wouldn't be so bad if our half of the place was done and I was able to move in too but it's not and I hate being home alone codependency problems. I hope everything stays balenced for the next week since I got comic con to go to on the 21st. I am at least smart enough not to say a certain phrase cause I know if I tempt fate it will kick my but worse than Optimus did Megatron in the movie. Sorry for the long pity party post guys I know it's not liked but I hope a bit of venting is ok.

@  Rycochet : (14 April 2018 - 12:46 PM)

The past few system failures I've had that have lost files hae spurred me into a new burst of creativety, I soon fill up the space o a new hard disk with sketches and notes and other little things I do to stay sane.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:34 PM)

It's like a rebirth, a very sad, identity ripping, rebirth.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Losing all the files I saved up over a decade gives me the chance to start afresh.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 April 2018 - 11:02 AM)

I don't want to lose the web comic I made, but I also rock redundant drives and off PC backups.

@  Fnu Aw : (14 April 2018 - 10:13 AM)

I don't have anything important enough to worry about losing. Go me!

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

At least that was BEFORE my kids were born, so no baby pics lost.

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

I had a catastrophic hard drive failure in early 2007, and lost almost EVERYTHING. I was lucky I had a couple of documents synced to a mobile device at the time. No getting the photos back, though.

@  Bass X0 : (14 April 2018 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, I've lost a lot of stuff over the years due to not having backed up.

Have the movies even had a fart joke? I guess there's Jetfire's parachute from ROTF, but that's more of an "old people can't control their shits" joke.

The Amazon listings for Jupiter were updated - it's the Optimus we've seen before. I think these photos are the best look we've had at the figure so far:

That's actually not terrible, all things considered.

 

 

if we see more updates to the designs (the way the ROTF line improved on the 2007 stuff) I might not hate this.

If it's a five-bot combiner for $34.99 it's going to be small. Maybe a Legion class Dinobot combiner?

 

A BH Abominus re-deco could probably be shoehorned into this line pretty easily. Or PCC Grimstone, I suppose.

Okay, so we have enough info now to decode most of these, plus some extras from here.

It turns out that Prime, Bee and Grimlock have different codenames depending on whether the figure is a new mould or not.

Prime: old = Four Moons, new = Jupiter
Bee: old = Gas Giant, new = Saturn
Grimlock: old = Lunar Eclipse, new = Moon

Technically can't say "Moon" is Grimlock 100%, since there's only one data point, but it's obvious if you notice the links between Prime and Bee's two names.

Deluxe W1
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Mars = Barricade
Gamma Ray = Berserker
Shooting Star = Slash

Deluxe W2
Nova = Drift
Comet = Steelbane
Earth = Sqweeks
Hot Gas = Slug

Deluxe W3
Zodiac = Cogman
Gravity = Crosshairs
Saturn = Bumblebee
Lightning = Strafe

Voyager W1
Lunar Eclipse = Grimlock
Jupiter = Optimus Prime

Voyager W2
Pluto = Megatron
Supernova = Hound

Voyager W3
Gamma Beam Grey = Nitro
Sun = Scorn

Leader W1
Optimus Prime
Megatron

Legion W1
Four Moons = Optimus Prime
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Lunar Eclipse = Grimlock
Mars = Barricade

Legion W2
Pluto = Megatron
Gravity = Crosshairs
Nova = Drift

Legion future waves
Hound
Dragonstorm

1-Step W1
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Four Moons = Optimus Prime
Mars = Barricade
Supernova = Hound

1-Step future waves
Drift
Grimlock
Megatron

Armor Knight W1
Jupiter = Optimus Prime
Moon = Grimlock
Saturn = Bumblebee

Armor Knight future waves
Hound
Megatron

So doesn't that mean the third Movie MP is Barricade? Wasn't it Mars? And everyone assumed Bee was Mars and couldn't figure out who Saturn was?

Yup. MPs are Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, so Prime, Bee and Barricade.

The only real mysteries left are the TRU exclusives:

2-Pack Legion Figure ($15)
Deluxe Figure ($20)
5-Bot Figure Combiner & Slug ($35)
2-Pack Cybertron Deluxe ($40)
Figure Cybertron Planet ($150)

5-Bot Figure Combiner & Slug ($35)

 

Since it's with Slug, I'd it's a repaint of the PCC Dinobots & Grimstone. So maybe 1 TLK toy I might buy.

I am 100% down with an MP Barricade. I love HA Barricade, so I'd love for it to be TLK Barricade, but I think '07 Barricade is probably more likely, and it's the Barricade design I like somewhat more anyway, so that's fine.

 

Barricade.

$30 is easily believable for a PCC 5-pack current day MSRP. This being a movie item and an exclusive at TRU and $35 seems a decently likely price for something like that.

I don't doubt it's Grimstone given how TLK's shaping up, but PCCs wouldn't budge at $20. Even half-off sales barely got the line past the first wave. Nearly doubling the price... might as well make them part of the shelves.

 

 

Anyway, this toyline's looking dreadfully uninteresting. I was hoping "Berserker" meant we'd get more Decepticons than just Megatron and Barricade, 'cause they can apparently justify using an entirely new mold on a Crankcase redux, but, welp...

If we see any of the "missing" characters like Hot Rod, Onslaught, etc. I figure it'll probably be as 1-Steps. If this line goes anything like AOE we're likely to get more them than anything else. Of course, they equally might just pad the assortment with redecoes of all the AOE Dinobot 1-Steps...
