@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

To be fair even if it's more than a fluke the Trypticon leg issue seems Very easy to fix.

-ZacWilliam. No it still sucks and shouldn't happen, but at least for us fans in the know: easily dealt with.

Again, yeah, while the "oh but they won't be Headmasters" thing is a bit if a plus for ME, it's also one of the biggest strikes here for the same reason -- as it kind of comes across as "don't worry they finally wised up and stopped making everything Headmasters".


I'll be bummed when they stop making everything Headmasters. The brilliance of the last two lines is that they make lemonade out of how light and hollow toys have to be now; Combiner Wars gave us gigantic combiners that don't collapse under their own weight, Titans Return used that space for little cockpits. I'm into the little cockpits.

I gotta admit, "Titan Master Apeface was partly a namegrab for POTP Apeface" seems a hell of a lot more plausible to me than "TM Apeface is obviously a prelude to a Voyager TR Apeface" did to me.

"We got TM Apeface because there is no larger Apeface planned" still seems more plausible than either, but still.

This was also some anonymous 4chan rumor but I saw something on Twitter a few weeks ago that was saying that the whole main gimmick of PotP was going to be some weird toys-to-life, mobile app thing. I wish I could remember where I saw it so I could actually share it and remember what the other details of it were but it certainly sounded more interesting than this. Also fairly unlikely, but still.

That's what RID's linewide gimmick is!

(I'm not sure whether that makes it more or less likely.)

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

If we don't get an update of Rodimus Prime that's as good as Titans Return Hot Rod is to Hot Rod, I'm declaring the entire line a failure.

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

 

Considering the line is called Power of the Primes, I'm thinking Rodimus will get a toy in some form or another and hopefully it will look like his G1 cartoon appearance, of course Optimus prime is likely to have a toy in some form or another, while Primal will definely get a toy as he won the "Fan vote" and its likely they'll do other charaters and brand them Primes or something, but time will tell.

 

As for Titans return, while I not been largely keen on it, overall its a good line, thou I feel Galvatron was meant for CW line or be a stand alone Generations figure, the flip up Mask is a pretty weak gimmick but then at times the first wave of voyager figures can suffer due to bad ideas but at least that Galvatron figure was a improvement over the Deluxe we had with the TFU line. The question remaining is, when will Hasbro revisit the target masters offically, same with the Power Masters?

I typed a stupid joke for this thread a couple of days ago about PotP revolving around everyone having a compartment in their chest for a TM-sized guy who turns into a Matrix. Y'know, Matrix of Loyalty, Matrix of Honesty, Matrix of Generosity etc. It didn't seem worth posting. (Did I post it? I don't think so.)

I can't think of a more obvious gimmick, unless everyone is a triple changer who has a standard robot mode and a beefier Prime mode.

According to the schedule on the wiki, that RID mobile game is due to get pulled down at the end of the year for whatever that's worth.

Everybody comes with a trailer they combine with to form a Super/Prime mode.
