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

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 07:08 PM)

I beat five teenagers with attitude before, I can do it again.

@  Pennpenn : (21 April 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Great, after ten thousand years Wonko is free again. Does this mean more Power Rangers are needed? Again?

@  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? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  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.

I noticed that myself. The colors look different from the photography, but that kind of stuff is always dicey from photos. In terms of actual color layouts/paint ops, I can't find any differences.

Voyager Hound deco variant?


I got the version with the crosses from HTS a couple of months ago. Picked up the crossless one this week and was surprised to find that not only were the box photos different, but the tooling of the elbows* and a significant amount of the engineering of the ankles are different, too. Also, the holes where the big guns attach to the turret mount on the original are too tight and crack, while the later ones fit fine. Lots of last-minute mold refinements happened, apparently.

* In fact, the left and right elbows on my cross-having one are different from each other (one having an engineering defect where some reinforced plastic keeps the parts from lining up right in altmode), and the second Hound doesn't match either one.

Infernocus makes the point that Abominus would have been better with a Commander as the torso. I know the one here is bigger than a Commander but point made.

On the other hand, the weathering is like the awful foil stickers. Given Kenner/Hasbro pioneered weathered painting on toys, it's sad to see the ugly attempt here. You can see pixelation!

I think something got messed up on that one, like someone sent a tampograph file that was low resolution or something.  It's very odd.

What's the TC stand for? I know the Premier Edition TLK toys had "TLK" in front of the numbers but I have no clue if the other toys had it different.

Google doesn't seem to know of any TC-01 through TC-08 Transformers. I had assumed it was a Turbo Changer number, but it looks like the entire TLK line used TLK-xx numbers, not just the Premier Editions.

Amazon's gotten in more of the pre-Cogman waves and their prices have just about all dropped down to $18-20 with exception of Bumblebee and Sqweeks, who are sitting at $25-30 depending on when you look.  I grabbed a Steelbane for $13 on Saturday afternoon, which was pleasant.

TRU Cybertron is currently reduced to £112.48 in the UK. Plus if you use the following code online or in store through tomorrow you'll get a further £10 off and qualify for the £10 gift card.

Also, Tesco are currently doing 3 for 2 on all toys. A new standee has emerged at the same time with some more recent TLK toys. Grabbed Legion Megatron and Dragonstorm, getting Optimus for free.

Holy bejeezus, Steelbane may be one of the worst movie figures ever.  Nothing holds together worth a damn on this rubbery bastard and the dragon mode looks even more nonsensical in person than in pictures.

I found one on a road trip to the middle of nowhere. I returned it to a different Walmart the next day. I feel like I would have liked him if the tolerances were even halfway close, but I'm not paying double digits for something I'd have to apply floor polish to every single joint or peg.

I've only seen the Voyagers past wave 1 any where (just once for Hound and Nitro Zeus, never a Scorn or whatever might ship with Hound).

Ive seen Hound twice, once in Maine, once here in Ct. Ive seen Nitro and Scorn just one time recently here at te Target in Westfarms. Ive only ever seen Wave 2 Deluxes at Hascon the first day.

-ZacWilliam, I was at that Walmart Monday and sadly they just had the same Wave 1 Movie and early Titanmaster toys theyve had for months and months and months.

Well, depending on how you view "all by himself". He isn't the only figure included in a wave 4 case (i.e. it's not a solid case consisting of eight Cogmans and nothing else), but he's the only new figure in his wave, i.e. all the other figures in a wave 4 case have already been available as part of a previous wave.
