@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

FWIW, I really like Studio Barricade, and his robot mode has a very stylish, predatory interpretation of the movie model - but his transformation is a major pain in the ass.

I just opened Sentinel Prime and he's really great. Both modes are very accurate, everything stores, and he's got a pretty simple transformation.

Those appear to be the same samples as Hasbro's official photos, so there's still room for optimism about Topspin's final deco, based on the black-headed Blitzwing that showed up after the official promo photos with it unpainted.

 

Soundwave, why.

Not 100% sure on lonewolf96's credibility. I seem to recall him relating info before. Someone correct me if so.

But he dropped off this bit of info on tfw2005 just now.

I was paged it seems

I haven't heard anything about a new 1986 devy but it's entirely possible.

If they did have plans for it I would think they would be shooting for a box set because as I understand it there's a couple more muti wave projects that they are considering before they go back to another constructicon combiner.

Junkheap - spanning two Voyager waves a one Deluxe wave - 3 bots total

Infernocus - muti wave Voyager except for the torso which I believe was rumored to be Leader.

There's suggestion that they want to try a hand at a new muti year / muti wave Dragonstorm but I haven't heard much of anything else on this one

I know we've been getting all sorts of impossible toys recently, but Voyager/Leader Infernocons would still be an amazing thing to see. All the bots look the same, combine into something that also looks the same, and there's no quirky alternate forms to add any kind of interest. I wonder if they'd go so far as to make separate left and right limbs, or if you'd be expected to just buy two Arm-Guys and Leg-Dudes.

Infernocus does look different from the Infernocons (I'm not clear on whether you were being literal, they're definitely all big lumpen black guys), but yeah. That''s...pretty believability-stretching.

 

I'd love that Junkheap, but I'm not holding my breath. Also it'd be a huge garbage truck.

One possibility is that, if the 86 movie is a big part of next year's Studio Series, they could simply reissue the Unite Devastator as a premium item.  With minor deco changes, it would be distinct from the Combiner Wars release and be something "new" to the US market.  And being more than 5 years removed from its last availability, it would likely still be cheaper than the aftermarket going rates for the set.

It might not meet "modern" expectations for a Studio Series release, but it might be a more pragmatic option than tying up 6 Voyager slots over the next 12-18 months with very similar looking toys (even though the Movie Constructicons were all construction vehicles they at least had distinctive colors).

Junkheap makes me skeptical. How the hell you gonna sell three figures that each turn into 1/3 of a garbage truck?

 

A Voyager Infernocon that turns into an arm, leg, and torso that you have to army-build to form Infernocus sounds a lot more plausible.

One figure at a moderate/small pricepoint that turns into a spaceship that can also be a camera if you get three of them is a different kettle of fish to three distinct figures, two of which are at a larger pricepoint, who each turn into an incomplete vehicle, I think.

Presumably they would make the partial garbage trucks into some kind of halfassed non-vehicle like Reflector, is what I was suggesting.

I imagine that'd be trickier with the ass-end of a garbage truck than something that can be written off as "alien spaceship".
