They're all red.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2017 - 05:20 PM)

what color are their bandanas?

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:48 PM)

*rescue, though

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:47 PM)

Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

@  Robowang : (23 May 2017 - 10:32 AM)

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2017 - 05:08 AM)

@  Maruten : (23 May 2017 - 04:26 AM)

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:40 AM)

Less said about the Sinclair Microdrive, the better...

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:23 AM)

I had two ZX Spectrum games on cartridge. Played 'em loads as it beat having to wait ten minutes for unreliable tape loading...

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

*dies*

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

There are a bunch of Simba toys that have been revealed for Nuremburg.

 

Hot Wheels/Matchbox style cars based on Robots in Disguise Optimus, Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Drift, Steeljaw... and even Grimlock as a T-Rex shaped dragster/hot rod! There are about a dozen different color schemes for each car, and some having a light up gimmick.

 

There's single packs, 2-packs featuring the car and a PVC robot mode of the character, 3-packs, 5-packs... any way you can imagine them getting released. The robot mode PVCs exist for each of the cars, as well as Underbyte and Slipstream.

 

Ad then there's a play set scaled to those cars, an RC Drift that can convert to robot mode, some Laser tag or roleplaying weapons and vests... Just... Lots of RiD.

 

I thought this meant these until I reread and saw Drift, "dozen different color schemes", etc.

 

http://www.dickietoy...s/transformers/

 

It does have A dragster Grimlock...

 

Wow, that Optimus trailer alone might be worth the price of admission for me. Provided I can actually hitch it to one of my proper robots. With the various sizes of Optimus out there, one of them HAS to work.

 

 

...............................................................................................................................................................right?

 

These are Hot Wheels-ish, so with a Spychanger or maybe a Commander?

I expect people to complain about how it was a huge letdown because Hasbro didn't reveal a minimum of twenty-three (23) previously unrumored 100% perfect 3D recreations of G1 cartoon models and/or MTMTE/LL designs perfectly scaled for The Classics Shelf.


Or they'll complain because Hasbro did reveal that, but somebody leaked all of it two hours earlier, so Hasbro wasn't showing anything new.

I'm just sitting here hoping that Overlord has kissy lips.

It's hard to predict - we've had lots of IDW-specific sculpts in TR, but they've also proven willing to ditch particularly "un-G1" things like Perceptor's monocle...

Well, people do keep abbreviating the next live action film as TLK.

It isn't.

 

He does have a bit of clear plastic though.  Like clear orange eyes, head canopy, and leg circles, and clear turquoise in his tail area.

Full Tilt does look like he might be Deluxe sized now.

So any info on a Titanmaster for Trypticon? If Full Tilt is more like deluxe sized, does his head become a Titanmaster? I'd think there's at least got to be a Titanmaster included somehow.

I would tend to think one would be included, but I honestly don't know.  I've only seen Full-Tilt in var mode (he can fit on his chest like the original).  He's all purple, with black wheels and a double barreled black gun on his roof.  In the photo there isn't any paint on the figure, but I don't know if that's the way he's going to be or if it's because it's an early photo.

 

I'm speculating his height is around that of a Deluxe based on the photo, but it depends on how big Trypticon is compared to the other Titans.

Full Tilt clearly has no place to store a Titan Master himself, so it's likely he doesn't have one.

 

Not sure if they'd pack Trypticon with one for the heck of it, but nothing I've seen indicates he has one.  His head definitely doesn't transform to a Titan Master like Fort Max's.

 

I do wonder if the clear section in Trypticon's tail is a cockpit or something though.  Perhaps for Full Tilt.  Either that or something that lights up?

I really wonder if they'll just skip the Titan Master in the name of making him line up with Metroplex, and just include a lot of cockpits and mounting points, or something.

Hi, Randy!

 

Why are you being the jerk who talks about super secret things other people haven't seen yet and probably won't be able to because you saw things in advance of official reveal? I was that jerk once, and it's difficult to realise how it's jerkish when you're just sharing information, so I'm going to be as helpful as I can by saying the word jerk so many times in this post you become numb to it.

Or anonymously send the image as a news submission to one of the less scruplous fansites, so we can at least talk about it together instead of you figuratively masturbating over being the arbiter of information.

You're right, there's no good reason to leak the image for public viewing.

 

Is it bad to think that describing the image is similarily fraught, both socially and legally?
