@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 11:57 AM)

i've seen fan vids of feathered Dinobot and Depthcharge (which got a top comment by someone who claims to be his voice actor) which show how CG progressed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2020 - 08:01 AM)

A great story, and characters which more than make up for the now dated looking (but still clean and fluid.) CGI.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 03:31 AM)

Thanks to Kingdom I've been rewatching Beast Wars. Still tops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 October 2020 - 03:19 AM)

If they manage to tie GI Joe into Transformers like I hear they're trying to do, and it manages to put Joe product on the shelves again? I will totally forgive even the worst movie ever.

@  Telly : (15 October 2020 - 12:58 AM)

they LOOK cool, but i dont like the size. i grew up in the late 70s and early 80s where action figure size was 3 3/4, so thats what i prefer

@  fourteenwings : (15 October 2020 - 12:32 AM)

I think the new G.I. Joe Classified figures are pretty cool.

@  Telly : (14 October 2020 - 07:11 PM)

speaking of gi joe, just bought my first gi joe figure since...2011? whenever the 30th anniversary/pursuit of cobra was. got the so-called "retro" storm shadow. only got him cause i missed the ultimate version way back when

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2020 - 02:13 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2020 - 02:11 PM)

New G.I. Joe anything has been a disappointment. The biggest of which is what I hear they will do with SnakeEyes.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The disappointment of the new GI Joe game has been offset by the arrival of PRINNYS!

@  Nevermore : (14 October 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Sure, but as a unionized worker myself, it's a hot button topic for me.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

In fairness, there are FAR more pressing issues than whether a multinational company decides to use cheaper non-union VA for their cartoons

If they gave Apeface a new, er, face for both modes, that'd probably be pretty great.  An Optimus Primal ape mode seems odd to me if it doesn't have two eyes and some angry eyebrows.  Drop the guns, throw in a couple of melee weapons (swords or TM1 maces), and you'd have a neat little package.  Since we've already had Optimus Primal introduced into this line/universe/what-the-hell-ever, just treat him like he's the next form up after Optimal Optimus.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

It's close, but not quite Primal Prime, exactly.
 
More like "Let's put Optimus Prime's specific color layout onto this robot munky to make him more like a REAL Prime! No one really wants a ORANGE munky, amirite?"

You say that like Optimal Optimus doesn't have a complete eyesore of a deco.

 

 

Bah! I love the orange!

Only reason I didn't get that version is I felt like the King version was more what I voted for in the poll.

The orange is great! Being an eye sore is great!

 

But simply bright orange doesn't make it an eye sore. Orange and blue isn't an eye sore, they're a common and complementary color combination. But when the bright orange and blue are then next to purplish-burgundy shoulders, now *that's* an eye sore! A lovely, lovely eye sore.

 

But also I only have the "King" version of the POTP mold as well. I didn't see the new mold as an "upgrade" over the perfectly fine OpOp already in my collection. But the repaint was a new color scheme that looked interesting on that mold. Just had him out this weekend since it'd be awhile since I tinkered with him. Not a horrible mold, but still kinda "meh" to me. So I'm good with just that 1 repaint of the mold.

Question.

 

An acquaintance is wanting to know what the two tabs sticking out on the sides of Blackwing's cockpit are supposed to be for, as they don't seem to be used for anything when in vehicle, robot, arm, leg, or super-jet modes. Does anyone know what these tabs are for?

Speaking of Throne Primal...

 

So, uh, I'm kinda late to the party on this but I got the Throne of the Primes set back when it was first released in 2018... and only just now got around to actually opening it up. :doh
 
I got the figure and accessories out, but I'm having some trouble figuring out the throne. Namely, how much of the packaging am I supposed to remove from the throne? Some images only show only the black plastic piece left on the seat, while other pics show both the black plastic piece and the cardboard jungle backdrop.
 
I'v already separated the throne from the backdrop, but am keeping the backdrop since it's too nice to get rid of (same with the full box itself). But I cannot figure out how to remove the clear plastic piece above the black plastic piece. How do I remove that clear piece without destroying the back of the throne itself?
 
Or, is that clear plastic piece attached to the plastic Halo of Primus behind the throne and not meant to be removed?
 
Same with the black plastic piece. Is that piece supposed to stay or is it meant to be removed? And if the latter, how?
 
Truth be told, I'd also like to do as little destruction to these pieces as possible.
 
For a visual aid, this old photo from an old Seibertron.com news article basically matches what my throne currently looks like (but with some of the paper and plastic ties still trapped within the plastic pieces):

I left the halo on mine. Seemed to me to be a feature of the throne, not packaging for it.

 

I started trying to remove the black plastic, decided I needed to give it some more thought, and set it aside. It's still sitting aside with the black plastic attached. I don't really like it that way, but it's roughly item #729 on my to-do list. And I keep adding new projects faster than I check any off.

Now I'm confused what you're asking about.

 

I'v already separated the throne from the backdrop, but am keeping the backdrop since it's too nice to get rid of (same with the full box itself). But I cannot figure out how to remove the clear plastic piece above the black plastic piece. How do I remove that clear piece without destroying the back of the throne itself?

 
Or, is that clear plastic piece attached to the plastic Halo of Primus behind the throne and not meant to be removed?

 

 

Oh, I think I get it now. I thought the new paragraph was a separate question and you were asking about whether the halo, with its clear plastic tray, was supposed to be removed. But if I'm understanding correctly now, you're asking if the clear piece in front of the throne is attached to the halo behind it? If so, I guess not. I managed to remove it on mine without affecting the halo. I'm afraid I can't remember anymore how it was connected and how I removed it, though.
