Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

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

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  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)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

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

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 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.

I'm dying to see Stinger clearly. Between the blurry show-floor photo and this tiny scan, he looks really strange. I hope that's good-strange, but I dunno about a whole-roof claw-gun.

Huh. Are they turning Stinger into a Corvette? Or is there possibly going to be a Corvette in the backdrop image?

The picture of Stinger next to the sign saying not to take pictures very clearly showed his Huayra mode, so it's not likely to be that.

The most interesting possibility is "we don't know about the Bee Movie Vette yet"; the least interesting is probably "this was copied directly from TLK packaging and Crosshairs was in that".

It sounds as though a lot of people find his altmode doesn't fit together and/or that his feet are floppy and he won't stand up. I assume, given the diversity of reaction, that he's very QC-dependent.

Mine holds together well in car mode and the feet are fine, but he falls apart easily. The doors, front wheels, and hands pop off easy during transformation.

That sounds terrible, but given that a good 60% of the figure is brand new, there's a very good chance those issues have been fixed.

 

After five movies, I've got franchise fatigue, but finally doing justice to Bumblebee's '76 Camaro mode is enough to get my attention.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I've seen reactions that mostly lean on "Hasbro can make new molds for anything anytime they're just being cheap and lazy retooling the TLK Bee mold", while I'm all "a great base body for that vehicle mode, finally, gimme now".

Despite my complaints about the parts popping off I do really like the figure and I'm looking forward to this new one. I wonder if the Bumblebee movie toy will also be based on this mold or be an entirely new mold.

I'm not entirely convinced that it's a reshell, myself. None of the pieces really match 100% (even the toes are slightly differently shaped), but these ARE blurry pics and all, so I could be super wrong.

 

The only important thing is that I Want. So much. Love the car, love the robot design, really eager to retire the loved-but-so-doofy '07 toy.

(or more likely I'll just display them side-by-side)

Another great thing is once I saw where someone had cut off Rotf Rampage's face and glued it to the '76 Camaro Bee's body, a custom that I immediately knew I had to copy. I recently found a guy selling junkers of both for dirt cheap (and I suspect edited in a description about how worn out bee was after I paid for it) but just couldn't bring myself to potentially destroy a '76 Bee since I never owned one before.

Now I may do so guilt free because I'm totes buying the new one.

Just some random Camaro bot.  The guy head cannoned it into a reformed Decepticon that chilled in Cuba with Simmons. 

 

I just loved the way the Rampage's face looked on the body.  I'll remove the Autobot symbol and increase my already shelf dominating movie Decepticon forces.

This is the first time in my collecting history that I plan to buy a figure just because of the basically arbitrary fancy car mode they picked to use in the movie. That Pagani is sweet.
