Just a few more days until my Battletech key goes live on GOG...

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 April 2018 - 08:51 PM)

The first Transformers live action film really IS a lot better than what popular culture has made it out to be.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2018 - 08:27 PM)

I dunno if I'd go that far. I enjoyed the first Bayformers more than the MMPR Movie remake

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

For the record, it was better than the (live-action) Transformers movies.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 08:21 PM)

No, I wasn't at the krispy kreme when I beat them. Wait, what?

@  Paladin : (21 April 2018 - 08:13 PM)

go back to Krispy Kreme

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 11:14 PM)

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.

Hot Rod seems like the obvious identity for the last unknown Deluxe to me.

 

Equally, Onslaught almost certainly isn't the last unknown Voyager, which is just depressing.

Because it's a Voyager and he's a non-Megatron Decepticon. If it is, great - we don't know of any obvious other candidates - but I don't think getting my hopes up about movie Decepticon toys at this time is a good plan.

 

I believe we had a list of waves and size classes, but I don't know if we know they're complete beyond "this is how many toys Hasbro has told retailers are in the assortment" - which has changed in the past, but not often, and probably not for a movie line which has to be scheduled as an actual summer event thing. They need to know when to go back to planning on the usual smaller numbers of RID and Generations.

Remember when the Movieverse toyline just wouldn't die, giving us things like toasters and forklifts and cargo planes (with mini-Optimuses!) just for the hell of it? *sigh*

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.

 

Eh... it's a TRU exclusive. Using a questionable mold and hiking the price seem par for the course.

 

And this would have movie support, Slug's in the movie and there are Mini-Dinobots too? I'd expect some media support would make this more appealing to kids than PCCs were originally.

So, is that MP Prime listing the reissue MP-10? Or something else? Can't see them making a Bee-style new mold MP for movie Prime, but I could see them redecoing something as a Movie Masterpiece. Unless that's just the reissue.

 

(Still feel odd about MP Movie Bee. Like 6, 7 years ago I'd have been all over it, but now my reaction is just "ok")

It's specifically TLK product, and way too cheap for the MP-10 reissue.

Given that it's only $100 compared to Bee and Barricade's $80, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a fancy-paint-job redeco of the ROTF Leader. Well, that or it's just a really out of scale new mould.

Ahh, that's what I vaguely wondered.

 

Once again, if it's a redeco of the Buster Prime mold (which I suspect now) it's product I would love to have owned...6, 7 years back (but didn't have the free cash for), and now feel like I've kind of moved past.

 

(1% of me also holds out hope that they're just, like, selling MP10 for really cheap. I CAN DREAM).

Considering the rest of the TLK toyline and the price point and the fact that the first two MPMs were also just redecoed Leaders, I think ROTF Prime seems the most likely.

 

But also, considering Bee and Barricade are $80 and that's way over the Japanese retail for MPs, I suppose there's room for a vague hope that it's a new mold with a slightly less brutal profit margin.

All they really need to do to make Masterpiece Prime is to retool the legs of the ROTF version in such a way that the wheels can sit flush on his thighs.

Edited by Locoman, 28 February 2017 - 10:58 PM.

"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

Yeah, the last movie gave us a TRU exclusive of Energon Grimlock, but without the Swoop that (poorly) justified him being a crap figure. I can totally believe the movie giving us a PCC repaint as a $35 exclusive.

I'm hoping "5-bot combiner & Slug" is a Grimstone redeco ... and Slug. The dinodrones can be mini Dinobots (well, without robot modes) in the spirit of the film's supposed ones.
