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? ;)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 April 2018 - 10:56 PM)

You know.. for all intents and purposes, Shocker should have won in Kamen Rider 71.

@  Plokatron : (18 April 2018 - 06:55 PM)

:wtf :D :wtf Can't wait can't wait just a couple more days and I'm at Comiccon Cape! Gonna be a blast! I hope they have that freaking proper Master Sword Replica this year with the black handel (I love the one from the old comic drawn by the guy who did Cyborg 009)!!!

Forgive the jokes there but you made it clear you hated watermelons with how many you sliced, blasted and plain disintegrated on Tv. :thumbsup  (Why do we not have a Wheeljack salute emot?)  Simper-Fi Carry on Gunny see you up there in the great kingdom one day hope you enjoy the company of my great uncles and everyone who you saw last on that field of honor.

@  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.

So, wave three of the deluxes (New Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Strafe) is out in Canada, and goddamn, I've looked at like eight Bumblebees between three different locations, and NONE of them have clean paintwork. They're always too generous with the black paint on his chest, which seems to always be bleeding out of its lines, or speckled, and not generous enough with his silver paint, with the silver accents on his legs and arms ending too early and showing yellow. Same with some of the paint on his head. 

 

Can anyone confirm that, like, well-painted ones exist? Or, if I were to get one, (because they're on rollback at Walmart), if I'm better off just picking the least-sloppy?

These are also showing up at DD's Discounts, according to the guy on Facebook who originally spotted the new Kre-O stuff at Dollar General a while back.  He's from California so I'm not surprised that he seems to find these kind of things first.

On topic, but not with the current conversation....

 

I picked up the Toys R Us exclusive Deluxe Megatron figure during the Buy2Get1Free event this weeekend.  I like the little guy considering it is a reuse of an old mold.  The colors are nice on him and the face sculpt is pretty cool.

I greatly appreciated that they didn't just stick a TLK Megatron head on there and call it day, but designed one that actually fits into Generations and the body itself pretty nicely.

It helps that the not-TLK-Megatron head is genuinely cooler than the toy's original head.

I just got Knight Armor Hound and he's actually pretty fun.  It's like a modern G1 toy: simple transformation, two points of articulation, and a massive urge to go "vroom" when rolling it in vehicle mode.

Now that I've done my UT version of the AoE Autobots, I think my next goal will be a "simple" version of the team with Optimus and Hound being the Knight Armor versions and the rest as AoE/TLK One Steps.  Some of the those AoE one steps will take a long time to find on eBay for a reasonable price, so it's a nice long term goal.

I haven't picked up any of the movie Big Three Step Type TFs, but IU find the three-step RID Grimlock fun in what sounds like exactly the same way. Big, easy to mess around with, solid-feeling, and very characterful.

Tesco are doing a '3 toys for the price of 2' sale through Monday and these Transformers discounts are part of it.

 

Probably won't be an amazing selection but worth a look if any of the early TLK stuff was too pricey for you.

The only new thing my Target had was Wave 2 of the Legions. I grabbed Megatron only to find out that he's smaller, more expensive, and way more detailed than all my older Cyberverse guys. I'm both disappointed and genuinely impressed.
