Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 06:24 PM)

Ugh I have had a terrible week. My step mom goes to the hospital with high heart rate then has elevated blood sugar once they fixed her heart flutter. Then she is released last night and snaps her ankle bone so she needs to stay at her aunts till it is healed. Wouldn't be so bad if our half of the place was done and I was able to move in too but it's not and I hate being home alone codependency problems. I hope everything stays balenced for the next week since I got comic con to go to on the 21st. I am at least smart enough not to say a certain phrase cause I know if I tempt fate it will kick my but worse than Optimus did Megatron in the movie. Sorry for the long pity party post guys I know it's not liked but I hope a bit of venting is ok.

@  Rycochet : (14 April 2018 - 12:46 PM)

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

At least that was BEFORE my kids were born, so no baby pics lost.

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

I had a catastrophic hard drive failure in early 2007, and lost almost EVERYTHING. I was lucky I had a couple of documents synced to a mobile device at the time. No getting the photos back, though.

@  Bass X0 : (14 April 2018 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, I've lost a lot of stuff over the years due to not having backed up.

Oh man, if that Fire Convoy rerelease is real, I might have to have it. FC was the first toy I ever imported (I was too impatient to wait for the Hasbro release) and he's always been one of my favorites. Unfortunately I've lost some of Convoy's armor bits, Magnus is in pieces, all the chrome is gone, and there's probably two intact tires between the two of them. A big shiny new set would be pretty special.

 God Fire Sword

 

Where did this name for the sword come from? Both the Japanese cartoon and the original clear God Fire Convoy giftset's toy bio used "Super God Sword".

 

 

Probably just faded memories of the name or misinformation from back in the day.

 

 

MP Fire Convoy when?

 

I legitimately don't know what they would do for an MP RID Prime besides take away his electronics and ladder-missiles. He's basically already show-accurate in every mode, fully posable, yadda yadda yadda. I guess they could make him a licensed truck.

 

Would he be bigger? I guess he could be MP Magnus sized. If, like, there were any chance they could sell a Magnus-sized non-G1 MP.

 

 

I'm sure they could do a lot to improve on the figure's aesthetics.  Make the look more like the anime and the figures overall more athletic.

 

People said similar things about Beast Convoy.  Mimicking the look of the CG notwithstanding, there are definitely some things that were done differently.

The way Super Fire Convoy's chest piece attaches to normal Fire Convoy's torso could be improved upon.

 

While the front chest attachment prongs were secure, the top chest attachment pegs always kept popping off on mine since the ladder made that whole piece so heavy and the sliding mechanism for normal Fire Convoy's torso lacked any means of locking into place, which let gravity always pull the torso down, causing the normal Fire Convoy head to push upward on the top chest attachments for Super Fire Convoy's chest and head.

 

Of course, mine was/is the Hasbro version named Optimus Prime, so pardon my use of the Takara names for the American toy.

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.

Primal's show model was always pretty different from the toy, in color if nothing else. I just don't see that difference in RID Prime.

 

I mean, I probably would have said the same thing about ROTF Leader Prime, and yet the MPM is pretty different (and I would suggest largely superior), so I'm sure they could do it. It just seems like a solution in search of a problem, to me.

 

On the other hand, RID Magnus is garbage so RID Prime as a reason to make a revised MP RID Magnus is a-okay by me.

I certainly like that they're likely giving us the remaining 1987 Hasbro Autobot Targetmasters guns

 

whats the point of specific target masters that dont have the corresponding bigger robot to go with them? id rather have sureshot, crosshairs and pointblank (even if it is minus their partners) than spoilsport, pinpointer and peacemaker. putting those guns with other tfs just seems weird to me

My guess is Takara has gotten on a train of doing the 1987 Targetmasters now, and they don't want to stop the train.
The Targetmasters can be remolded without much trouble from the same base engineering, but there are no satisfyingly accurate molds for the large Cybertron trio at present.

as others have said, the tribute orion pax would make a good crosshairs. t30 sandstorm already looks like sureshot (especially the takara one), so maybe just put a new head on him. would be weird to have him be bigger than the others, and also the only triple changer. all we need is pointblank
