@  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?

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!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

Shocknado, awesome.

I hope at least some of these guys get Warrior class figures, Cyclonus chief among them.

It looks like Menasor is just Motormaster and the Drag/Break duo?

Also if they're still doing mission redecos, I'd like a Lunar Force Strongarm.

We saw that Menasor is also only composed of 4 bots at the first official art leak. And Galvatronus there clearly has the same leg design for both legs. Ultrabee has Grimlock lower body. It looks like all of the combiners are made of 4 guys with a torso, two arms and a lower body.

 

I'm guessing Shocknado is a fusion of Cyclonus and Shockwave, if only because he is completely purple instead of a color mix like the other two-guy combiners.

Menasor is strange mainly because he appears to be made of Motormaster, Drag Strip, and then both a Breakdown-esque and Wildrider-esque guy, but we got one of the 'Con Crash Combiners as "Wildbreak", who seems like he should be covering the latter two, with Dead End as the fourth. But this picture kind of implies - huh, I wonder if it's Motormaster, Drag Strip, Wildbreak-the-Breakdown proxy and Offroad. Those legs are pretty truck-y.

 

Galvatronus is intriguing and I'm glad to see it used (presumably) in fiction, with Cyclonus' behind-the-scenes control of Cybertron.

 

Shocknado seems like he should be a fusion of Shockwave and someone, but I don't see any Shockwave in either half, or the head design. Maybe we're getting an RID Shockblast or something.

 

Ultra Bee, Menasor and Galvatronus being classified as Crash Combiners certainly lends credence to the idea that even the big main combiners are going to be released as smallish toys - which is disappointing but not surprising, if correct.

 

EDIT: Ugh, stupid Creedence.

Yeah, I didn't even look at that, but nothing matches between model and headshot on Shocknado. So my guess is the inset picture is one of the components' art incorrectly stuck in there.

 

EDIT: Also I wasn't smart enough earlier to compare Menasor to Dragbreak, so clearly Wildbreak is the fill-in for the deceased Breakdown, and I'm definitely betting the legs are Offroad. It would even make sense for him to be a big truck to match up with Grimlock being a big tyrannosaur in Ultra Bee.

 

Also also: huh. Galvatronus and Menasor are rendered like their legs are individual vehicles, with wheels on both the insides and outsides of the legs, but Ultra Bee clearly only has half a Grimlock on each side, as evidenced by his adorable flailing dinosaur arms.

So, Galvatronus could be Cyclonus's endgame, using his mind control powers to not only manipulate the Council, but to also make himself a combiner. My theory, at least.
 
Though, look closely at Galvatronus's arms. Don't they look kinda like blue-colored Vehicons?

All this, and no Blastwave or Stormshot?? I still just get candy when I scan them.

(That purple energon looks like candy).

I'm not Antifa, I'm not violent. But try to look at it from my perspective for 5 seconds. I see 1 side who wants my hugging blood. Literally. And I see another standing in opposition of them, clearly willing to take any stance they need to to stop them. Then I see a bunch of people hemming and hawing and wringing their hands about the whole thing.

 

Who am I supposed to feel more protected by?

It looks to me like Motormaster will be forming the pants, rather than the torso, of Menasor, leaving the torso to be someone else.

I know about the art work with 4 Stunticons, but it still looks like to me Menasor and Galvatronus are standard 5-bot combiners: torso + 2 arms + 2 legs. It's just UltraBee that has Grimlock forming both legs.

But Menasor's two legs are identical. Surely a five limb combiner wouldn't have this?
