Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

I knew that my father was getting old when he finally posted a facebook status that was clearly a search term.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

could've been worse then :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:03 PM)

So when he tried to pry into his daughter's love life, he ended up posting numerous search terms relating to "hot boy".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:02 PM)

I once saw this comedy episode wherein a dad mistakenly thought the status bar on Facebook was the search bar.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 11:41 AM)

is cool squawkbox =/= search box

Happy Birthday to Nevermore and Angelus!

@  Waspinator : (11 August 2018 - 04:45 PM)

I like how that game had all kinds of transformation attacks. Some of them may not have made much sense, but they looked cool.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Menasor kinda did that in the Devastation video game. He'd split into the Stunticons and run you over.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 August 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Megatron screams "decepticons attack", the constructicons form devastator, who then screams "Multi-vector assault mode" and breaks back into invdividual bots to attack seperately.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Imagine: an armada battle between Omega Supreme and Tidal Wave.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Some TF creator should apply it to multi-component Transformers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:19 PM)

"Multi-vector assault mode" is such a cool term from Star Trek: Voyager.

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 August 2018 - 04:24 PM)

Most things would be pretty cold after two hundred and seventy degrees.

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:39 PM)

(Because F = (9C/5) + 32)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:38 PM)

Oh yeah, five times thirty is TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY! My bad...

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 01:15 PM)

Given the weather we've been having this summer, anything under 30 is a friggen god send.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2018 - 12:53 PM)

Surely "slightly under 30" doesn't pass for "cold" unless you live in the tropics.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:20 PM)

... or we're finally facing the end game of global warming, but no one will care by then.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

Generally speaking, if the number when referring to temperature is less than 50, you're probably not talking to an american.

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 11:13 AM)

86 F

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:07 AM)

(30 C = 68 F)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:06 AM)

And is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 09:13 AM)

What continent are you in?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 06:41 AM)

oh wow... even with humidity today it won't break 30. It's going to be so... COLD...

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:58 AM)

@Msol Make sure he shares. My bro hardly ever let me play with his TFs. I even offered to let him play with my dolls/ponies, too.

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:37 AM)

:p My brother was a bigger pain as a kid. As adults, I'm the bigger pain now.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 August 2018 - 06:31 AM)

Congrats man, and good luck. My personal experience is that little girls are pains in the ass clean through 30.

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 10:59 PM)

Yup yup. Now my 2.5yo will need to learn to share all his TFs...

@  MEDdMI : (07 August 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Msol Really? Congratulations! :)

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 08:48 PM)

Ack! We're having a girl!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 August 2018 - 06:16 PM)

It did include a Transmetal 2 hyena with a giant sawblade in his back.

@  unluckiness : (07 August 2018 - 08:56 AM)

but does it BURN BURN BURN TO THE GROUND?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Okay, I don't buy doubles and I would have gone after a dozen of those.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2018 - 10:32 PM)

I still think Beast Wars should have included a Transmetal Maximal hyena with a motorcycle-based semi-third mode, of Junkion descent, named Lafftrax

@  Pennpenn : (06 August 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Well if they did the same thing as Roadbattletrapslash (and if they didn't what's the point?) it'd be two new molds, but still.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 August 2018 - 01:08 PM)

I'm surprised that Hasbro wound up scheduling Frenzy for release in the Bumblebee movie line.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 12:50 PM)

Dunno. There's been recent Rewind toys, and Eject is just a quick repaint. Flywheels would mean a whole new mold.

@  Cyoti : (05 August 2018 - 08:24 AM)

Flywheels is probably in the same queue at Hasbro as Eject.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Energon Redux.

@  Foffy : (05 August 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Grand Slamwich

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:51 PM)

So we can get proper Flywheels and maybe Grand Slam? I mean, I'm sure if they did it as a full range we'd have an Optimus in there somewhere (with Roller pants? I dunno).

@  Pennpenn : (04 August 2018 - 07:48 PM)

I'd like to see them do more duocon type toys later on. Sort of like how they did Brainstorm as a Headmaster on his own before releasing an entire range of them.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2018 - 08:03 AM)

The first time I saw him, they were both on the shelf, and I passed on roadtrap cause I wasn't overtly impressed with the design. Grabbed battleslashe, read the instructions... ahhh, it's a duocon. Then didn't see the little blue git again until yesterday.

@  Shrug : (04 August 2018 - 07:40 AM)

I know! The store I go to the most got around 5 cases of Wave 2 legends in March, so I was not worried about getting the duo. After some recent hunting though, I've managed to find 3 Battleslashes in my entire city and no Roadtraps. 

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2018 - 09:42 PM)

Still, I'm glad I managed to find him again. I saw him once months ago and have been looking since.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2018 - 08:50 PM)

No kidding roadtraps instructions are bad. I actually had to look it up.

@  unitremover : (03 August 2018 - 07:08 PM)

I'd recommend trying to find an alternate way to transform and store away Battleslash's arms in combined mode though, the perscribed method ain't great imo

@  unitremover : (03 August 2018 - 07:07 PM)

They can be at first, especially Roadtrap since his instructions are really bad, but after a few times back and forth they're not too complex.

Not sure if the Allspark covered this, but here is a link to the coverage:

http://news.tfw2005....day-2017-346226

 

Most interesting thing is the new Cyberverse TV series coming.  Doesn't seem to be a continuation of RID based on the description.

Older audience will receive the continuation of the Machinima series.

...Is that a new Optimus Prime toy?  In the "Transformers Across Categories" slide, it shows a REALLY G1 Optimus Prime, including a seemingly G1 Transformation scheme (see the headlights on the back of his hands and the "gap" on the under arm).  Our first look at the Cyberverse line?  Looks a bit complex to be the "base robot" for the Power of the Primes Optimus Prime figure, but I guess it could be that one.

 

I'm really curious about Cyberverse, looks like a whole "neo G1" concept, given Hasbro's usage of G1 in Transformers marketing it does make sense.  Not sure how to determine the "TV and online" notation at this stage.  Sounds like it might be like Mixels or maybe JLA where the short episodes run on TV and later available online or something like that.

So then "Rescue Bots Academy" is an 11-min-per-ep TV series and then separately there's "My Rescue Bots Adventure," the YouTube thing?

Some of those Micronauts designs are... different. Not sure I like that Karza.

Rom having a gun that looks like something out of Halo is also weird.

If "Cyberverse" is a reboot rather than an RID sequel,  I'm thinking "Rescue Bots Academy" is most likely a reboot too, and thus ends the Aligned continuity.

It's a licensed non-transforming thing that I don't remember what it's called.

That's not Flame Toys or Hot Toys Prime, so I'm not sure to what you're referring.  I'm betting it's the unseen cab Deluxe mode for the PotP Leader Optimus, personally.

That's a new Movie Bumblebee design, right?

 

Also... if the new cartoon is going to be "G1 redux" (euhhh), I wonder if those Optimus and Bumblebee designs we've seen floating around really are for the new series?

Good to finally know why kids love Bumblebee. Also I love Rom's weird, giant super murder gun.

 

I... don't know what it means that they're using a screencap of the original cartoon to represent Cyberverse? Like... is it a new thing or is it weird, edited versions of the old cartoon? Is it like Action Blast? I hope it's like Action Blast.

The idea of "dark and gritty MASK" and "Space Marine Rom" don't particularly appeal to me, and the Micronauts stuff is... sure? Not a big fan of the designs and I have no idea why they've gone with a blue Acroyear - plus it doesn't look very "GOTG inspired" like I was expecting - but it looks alright for what it is. In the end, I'll probably be fine with whatever, since I'll still have IDW's Rom and Transformers. Probably.

Could be the new name for that "Transformers Authentics" line that was in the leak.

Considering that one year they used a fan-made MASK movie poster, I don't take any of these mock-ups at face value.

This is, at the very least, a direction they're considering, and I'm not particularly warm towards any of it.

The Micronauts one could be likely because we know that that's something that's been in more development than the rest for some time now. I'm not as convinced that ROM and MASK are anywhere close to final. Regardless, I hope to the Gods of Galador AND Elonia that isn't supposed to be Rom's Neutralizer.

Yeah, I'm not suggesting that these are definitely finalised. Just that I'm not thrilled that they're considering this direction - gritty MASK would inevitably be dull as all hell, and "Rom the Space Marine" would seem to lack everything I like about him.
