Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

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:

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.

Toy prices have certainly gone up, but $35 seems really steep for a PCC 5-pack...

$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...
