@Tm_Silverclaw - Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered him and P/CP

Nuke them enough in the microwave....?

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 10:07 AM)

oh wow Jazz has heel spurs.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Do they still make the cinnamon-brown sugar ones?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:03 PM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Four IS standard... but it's been so long I had forgotten.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 July 2018 - 07:29 PM)

Bah, wonko, I remember when 4 was STANDARD

Me: opening a box of pop tarts. "Oh my god! There's FOUR in here?!?! Score!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 10:47 AM)

My big hope is that we end up with a Volkswagen Bumblebee two pack featuring robot modes from the new film AND G1

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Lockdown has pinned tires. It's been a while

@  Telly : (11 July 2018 - 04:44 PM)

maybe a slurpee DID kick his dog! we just dont know

@  wonko the sane? : (11 July 2018 - 04:27 PM)

You could maybe add a smiley or something? At least make it not sound like a slurpee kicked your dog.

@  Paladin : (11 July 2018 - 08:21 AM)

oh right; it's Free Slurpee Day again.

@  Telly : (10 July 2018 - 11:04 AM)

brawl is one of the few movie designs i actually like

@  unluckiness : (10 July 2018 - 03:17 AM)

Studio Series Brawl is great aside from the annoying ball jointed cow-catcher bra halves

@  unluckiness : (09 July 2018 - 08:17 PM)

Yeah changeable faceplates are an MP thing

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 July 2018 - 05:23 PM)

The skull face would be added to the mold for later optional uses. It will then never be used.

Anyway, seems pretty busy and blocky, like most of the 3P combiners I've seen. I like Afterpurner's bike mode, but I couldn't see that there was a pic of his robot mode.

That seems less like Computron and more like a combiner that coincidentally uses some individual bots that happen to share somewhat similar alt modes.

 

Is this new for them? No longer copying and oversizing existing 3Ps but going their own way? Regardless, this holds no interest for me.

I don't think it can possibly be a coincidence - you're not just randomly going to include a space bike, a drill tank,, a forked space jet and a space-jet-that-is-a-cannon picking altmodes out of a hat - but it is also a bizarrely re-envisioned Computron for a modern third party. Especially since the torso appears to be "Strafe" and "Lightspeed" and the arms are a bisected "Scattershot".

 

I think it's neat, but is there really a modern market for something this big and this non-preexisting?

Kevin S, they're actually both in the link along with the individual vehicle modes minus Afterburner, etc.

 

It's really lovely to see something this unique and original in the 3P space again that isn't an MMC premold, and the combination scheme is clever and well executed. I can't get over the choice to make them all the same size and result in this giant car and motorcycle, especially looking back to Make Toys' Quantron (which of course had its own execution problems) where the vehicles made for such a lovely and diverse spread that actually looked good together. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

If this kicks off Wei Jiang doing their own thing, still matching Hasbro plastic and build quality, and continuing to be affordable all at the same time, we could see some very interesting stuff coming our way.

Looking at the "Defensor" in the TFW thread, they've done "just the same vehicles" combiner teams before.

I think I've seen a similar "Bruticus" as well, though I'm not sure who it was by.

Oh, I don't think it's coincidence. More that they are so different in most every other way that their similarities seem like an accident.

Not sure who it is, but that's not a Defensor I don't think. Not unless Streetwise is an excavator now.

Man, the concept art for the vehicle modes is way more convincing than the final product in most cases and I think this guy would have made some sense if they could have made it happen, but kudos for an entirely credible mole tank, which might be the first time in TF and TF3P.

Not that credible - the largest part of the drill is still smaller than the smallest part of the rest of the vehicle.
