business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 February 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Hey

@  Kalidor : (14 February 2020 - 03:01 PM)

The ones that get me are the "Uploaded 12 years ago" ones

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

It's just the day before Cheap Chocolate Day.

Meh, just more game time.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  TriBlurr : (09 February 2020 - 11:58 AM)

Needs more zone defense. Call Scrapper

Superintendent Chalmers is hilarious too, or was when he was played straight. "An unrelated article." "mm hm." "Within the banner headline."

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Optimus looks like his Siege figure. Maybe this will be canon to the Transformers ongoing comic series at the moment.

@  Cyoti : (06 February 2020 - 05:13 PM)

iirc megatron ended up in equestria at the end of gi joe v tfs

@  wonko the sane? : (06 February 2020 - 05:02 PM)

I doubt megatron will fall for that friendship stuff.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 February 2020 - 02:04 PM)

My Little Pony/Transformers is really happening cool!

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:49 PM)

I don't know...

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 February 2020 - 12:39 PM)

Okay, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:21 PM)

i believe you have a letter for me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (06 February 2020 - 12:11 PM)

My name is Mr Burns.

Huh. That...makes sense, right? I mean, the One-Steps are clearly an extremely successful kind of TF, so if you're trying to make different kinds of TFs available to wider markets through the Authentics line, you'd want some One-Steps.

 

Except won't they intrinsically be too expensive to fit into the places that carry Authentics?

One Steps tend to be more "complex" with more parts and complexity.  "Titan Changers" are larger and simpler and designed to be produced in larger numbers for a good several years.

Titan Changers seemed targeted more towards the mid-level retailers: not as cheap as the Authentics Alpha and Bravo figures, but not as complex or pricey as standard retail products.

 

As is, it seems to be that these are in a weird overlap with some of the lower tier Cyberverse stuff.  I'm not even sure these will even hit the US market

Oh, durr. I somehow completely ignored that Nevermore explicitly called them Titan Changers and...I dunno, went on what they looked like? Except they even look like Titan Changers, all tall and skinny with super-long legs. So probably just ignore my entire post.

 

It does make sense that they're doing Authentics Titan Changers, too, though. We've heard repeatedly that Titans are one of Hasbro's most popular kinds of figure across all lines.

These don't look too terrible for what they are - the Titan Changers have never been aesthetic marvels.

 

Speaking of Authentics, I never did find that gigantic "Super" Bumblebee.  Apparently, it was a Kohl's exclusive.

New year, new figures it seems.  The smaller "Bravo" assortment is getting a Ratchet figure, while Alpha sees a fairly nifty Soundwave.  Starscream and Grimlock are both getting Titan Changer versions as well.

Given how long these tend to be produced, would have been nice to see a couple more new faces in there.

Ratchet's shoulders are splayed out in the ugliest possible way, presumably to fit him on the card, and then stock photo replicates that. I'd like to see him posed normally. He looks like a fine Ratchet.
