You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

So how long does Barricade get in this new film before he bites it?  10 minutes?  5?

 

I really like this design and hope he has a significant enough role.

While I like the packaging, the "premiere" labeling makes me a bit worried, since the only thing that feels "premiere" is the number of accessories (2x or 4x more than most deluxes). Love the nightstick, and yes, I'd like to finally get a more heroic movie Prowl Remolded from this. All previous Barricades have been too monstrous to really sell as Prowl, but this one could work well.

"Premiere" appears to just be how they're differentiating this from the Generations line, since no lines appear to be taking a break for this one.

I don't think "premiere" in this sense is meaning "premium" or a sort of "platinum" edition, but more like "debut" or "first edition".

Wait, really?

All I'd heard was "VW is named Hooligan (Crowbar's pre-prod name) and looks like they're a Dread".

Also, it's kind of ridiculous that Bumblebee is a straight redeco of the AOE figure, especially considering he's going back to his "original trilogy" robot mode design for TLK.

Interesting, but are all the deluxes going to be boxed? Like, is "premiere" only the first wave, or something pre-wave 1 (they did this with the protoforms in 2007 and BB and Soundwave for ROTF, but they didn't get special packaging)? Curious

I assumed it just meant the reports came from someone who was familiar with the DotM toys, so I'm not exactly holding on for that one either.

I'd put money on "Premier Edition" simply meaning "TLK Generations". I figure it's all an attempt to avoid the situation they had with AOE where you had stuff like Power Battlers and Deluxes being nigh-identical on the shelf.

That's a really good point.  Plus, being in a box makes it look comparable to Star Wars and Marvel's Black Series figures at roughly the same price.

Man, "Crowbar" there looks massively improved, aside from total lack of color.  But considering how crap the original one was, I suppose that wasn't hard.

Yeah Berserker is looks great. Better than Barricade to be honest. I'm digging how dynamic the figures seem, it's clear they have a smaller budget than the ROTF days so the transformations are still simple but they still seem much more elegant than the DOTM and AOE deluxes.

Wait, why are people saying that's Crowbar at all? It's Crankcase. Am I to understand Crankcase is in TLK but called Crowbar? I mean, that makes sense, because it's not like he was called anything onscreen in DOTM, and also that guy is dead, so there can easily be a new guy who looks just like Crankcase but is named Crowbar, but...why?

 

Also: Barricade looks great, I don't understand the black panel in the middle of the hood, and the boxes are totally positioning the Deluxes as the equivalent of Marvel Legends or 6" Star Wars Black Series.

 

PS whoever that Dread is looks great, and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?

Yeah, now the kibble folds up, a new faceplate from Shapeways and Barricade will basically be a lovely new mold Generations toy. It doesn't look like a movie toy at all. I like it a lot.

 

The other two reuses from the older lines keep their old aesthetic, and are therefore awful ugly monstrosities.

Oh, huh, yeah, I couldn't compare properly on my phone and for some reason I had it in my head the Crowbar was the only one with double-eyes. But yeah, it absolutely is Crankcase.

and although I can't see the guy's page anymore and therefore can't see Bee, is it impossible that Bee shows up in his old body before reformatting in this one, and the AOE redeco is just the First Bee toy?


They've painted the front end of the new TLK vehicle mode over the AOE vehicle's sculpt, Takara style, so it seems like it's supposed to represent the new design.

That does seem like an odd decision, but I suppose if molds from a few years ago aren't financially viable anymore, maybe it's all they could do...

 

...but in what world does Hasbro not prioritize a new mold for Bumblebee of all characters? There's a new-mold Crankcase right there!
