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.

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

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

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

@  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.

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

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 January 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I knew a woman at Target who was forced to use up her vacation time before she could qualify for maternity leave. Then they denied the leave because she technically hadn't been at work for two weeks beforehand.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Also, if you become sick during your vacation and you turn in a doctor's sick note, it means that you don't lose your vacation days, because according to the law, vacation is intended for recreation, not for recovery from sickness or injury.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:00 AM)

Another priority is "vacation request for the next year turned in before the deadline". Like, you missed the deadline, you have to make do with what's left.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 03:59 AM)

No, they prioritize vacation during school holidays for employees with school-age children. Also, only three of the six weeks during the summer holidays per employee so a larger number of employees can get their requests fulfilled.

The idea of whole new deluxe Jazz intrigues me.  The original wasn't great even by 2007 standards, and I'm really interested what more current design teams would do with the character design.


I just hope they keep/update Deluxe Jazz's cool arm transformation.

Huh. Bonecrusher is, like, the one '07 Con i don't feel needs replacing. I mean, i can see how he'd be improved, but compared to gunhands Screamer, huge backpacking Blackout, and loose arms Brawl, old Bonesy got everything right the first time.

I was under the impression that this would be a mostly-reissues line with a few new molds. The Deluxes and Leaders seemed to mostly line up with earlier releases.

Hopefully they do take the opportunity to get some necessary reissues out, and perhaps debut some Takara tooling in the US for guys like Dino and Dispenser.

We don't really know what it is, exactly.  The Grimlock and Blackout molds are new, but everything else looks like it's either a reissue or just a placeholder.

Yeah, I don't get the assumption that most/all of these are going to be new molds. That seems...not really possible under the current financial model of how they do things. I'd assume a couple token new molds (Blackout and Grimlock) and I'd pegged everyone else as being a retool or redeco. I do like that with Stinger and Crowbar listed there, there seems to be an active effort to finish off each line, though.

The new mold thing seems to come from the fact that there are no Starscream and Optimus that both look like that and are the same size so at least one has to be new.

Crowbar at least is probably just going to be Berserker with a new head... which maybe might be why they went with him over someone like Mohawk or whoever in the first place? (well, with the deluxe at least)

Guys who haven't gotten toys since ~DotM might get new molds since Hasbro seems against using older toys for whatever reason.

I don't have any interest in movie toys. But in terms of repaints that might be usable as non-movie toys, a Western release of the black repaint of DOTM deluxe Soundwave would be nice (ideally with a gun and losing the daft Decepticon tampo), and maybe Cogman in a more interesting colour scheme with any contrast whatsoever.

My guess was that Stinger could be the same as the Takara one, and Crowbar seems to have Crankcase's SUV altmode in the photo, although sure, placeholder possible.

I have the the Takara Stringer and I really do love him.  I know he's just a recolor of Bumblebee, but the colors work so well on him.  That being said, I'm in full support of a more accurate Stinger mold.

 

I am most looking forward to Blackout though.  He's probably my favorite movie design and really just needed to be bigger.

I'm happy for those who like Blackout but I've no need for him. A proper Pagani Stinger, though, would be super cool.

And leader Brawl is still a great figure.

 

It looks like the HA Frenzy figure was reissued in 2015 as part of an Asia Premium 2-pack with Soundwave, but I don't know if it was any different than the first release of the same figure.

TF4 Lockdown

TF6 Stryker 2

TF4 Stinger

 

??? (Voyager?  No name on slides.)

This sounds siitably intriguing. There's certainly a few bots there that, should they be new molds, or simply new releases of japan only figures, i definitely would want them.

A new Jazz? Sure. New version of Stinger or simply the evil Bee Takara deco? Yes. Leadfoot? Definitely.

Blockout sounds interesting, but i'm not sure. He's a maybe for now.
