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

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 07:08 PM)

I beat five teenagers with attitude before, I can do it again.

@  Pennpenn : (21 April 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Great, after ten thousand years Wonko is free again. Does this mean more Power Rangers are needed? Again?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 April 2018 - 06:14 PM)

Ah, the layer of ice that froze it shut finally melted?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Oh my god! GUYS! It's actually warm enough I was able to open my window!

@  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? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

Ontario/Detroit area? Yeah. Supposedly, you could feel it from where I live, but I didn't notice. I never feel these things. 8(

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

Can't wait for Spider-Man to fight the Visorak

You know what's funny? Both Spiderman and Bionicle have a title in common. Web of Shadows. :p

@  Liege : (19 April 2018 - 08:03 AM)

Don't mocks the Shocker!

@  unluckiness : (19 April 2018 - 04:46 AM)

But he's the second lamest Spider-Man villain

@  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)!!!

@  Plokatron : (16 April 2018 - 12:31 AM)

Oh my word it is true. The greatest Gunnery Sargent to live is now gone. Gunny I know I'd of never cut the mustard if you were my CO but as I friend I would of been humbled and honored to know a man who truly knew the corp. May the jackets always be full metal and no watermelon left standing. 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.

@  Plokatron : (16 April 2018 - 12:21 AM)

Wait what!!!!!!! Gunny is dead!!!!

@  fourteenwings : (15 April 2018 - 05:32 AM)

Bill Maher?

@  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.

With all this talk of Energon Starscream I can't but help think of this team and their beautiful colors!

8ae9a03951e2c786f1bb57b6e433ca13.jpg
d0e3825ffd10efe3fb6c89d4f9c0e26e.jpg

They take the usual Aerialbot red and white and tweak it in such interesting ways. Like Air Raid and his Energon Screamer-esque gray and teal, or Skydive and his LAVENDER. (which this image doesn't do justice) I love the Lavender, him and BW II Galvatron can hang out and be buddies lol
This is a really nice looking team! I still have them on (the back of) my shelf with the "snowman" white version of the Fansproject upgrade kit, and they don't serve a purpose in my collection but I have a fondness for them.

Also speaking of these molds the original Energon Storm Jet has always been a fav of mine colorwise

cdddfaa3395f09bbb3f61d5c2268476d.jpg

The predominant red, with black and dark gray, and gold and blue highlights? Solid~
(Also I like how his vehicle mode shows off a lot more of that white)

I was just talking about them. Skydive is the best deco on the best Energon combiner mold.

Also, that mold is probably the best A-10 TF mold.

Was just fiddling around with Swerve today, and remembering how much I loved his deco and how it managed to somehow made him  seem like a much better toy than Clocker.

The Sky Shadow mold can air surf on its energon weapon, so it wins!

Also I like to mistransform it and leave the head backwards and flip the goggles partway down. Kind of gives it a Wheeljack mouthed visor face which I think looks cool and cute~

I like the dark red better than the version with the gray.

 

I don't mind the red tires at all.  Actually like them a lot.

I love this thing so much. That it was like the same year or so as Classics Rodimus is endlessly weird in retrospect, but at the time it was a lovely tip of the hat from HasTak to come up with such a nostalgia-friendly but still plenty novel design, and then give it two neat takes on the color scheme.

That Hasbro came to the rescue with a regular retail version in Excellion was a godsend for someone who dug the Takara colors but couldn't swing the dough for it.

It's subdued, but I really like this one. The black and silver contrasting with the slightly-greenish blue and the two different greens, plus the small red and yellow accents...

I find a lot of these colour schemes a little too bright, so here's something on the opposite end of the spectrum:

 

r_scout-hardtop-079.jpg

r_scout-hardtop-017.jpg

 

The green, yellow, and green/blueish grey work really nicely here to create the perfect generic/miner look, right down to the S7 faction symbol. Lot of paint on this figure in general. I miss that.

I know this opinion is likely to be unpopular, as I've seen Computrons that are a composite of the UW and CW Technobots with UW Afterburner left out, but I absolutely love UW Afterburner's color scheme.

 

That red is such unique shade of red (I've never seen it on a toy before), and coupled with the white and clear blue... I find it very fetching (not my photo - but a rare example where I think the red is properly captured).
