only takes three pounds to be a cereal killer.

@  Kalidor : (20 October 2020 - 04:54 PM)

5 pounds is a lot of cereal! /deadpan

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 08:40 AM)

My local Symths is still chock full of Earthrise wave 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 08:24 AM)

Yup, generally so much they don't bother with any other waves as the existing stock doesn't sell out.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

All the damn time.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

If there's anything there's going to be plenty of stock, it's wave 1.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:56 AM)

I'm really not worried about wave 1 of a new line EVER.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

At least you got listings for kingdom. walmart canada won't list them until they're actually in stock and that could very well never happen. I'm gonna get mine from BBTS cause I'm not missing out on the maximals.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

And I don't buy the "they all sold out" explanation. The Kingdom figures are still listed.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:32 AM)

I don't see any of Friday's reveals at Walmart.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There's a difference between "sold out" and "no trace of a listing".

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:23 AM)

There is still a listing for the scalped and sold out Walmart exclusive limited edition version of Gigawatt.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 07:22 AM)

But there should still be a listing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 06:30 AM)

Probably got scalped and sold out in seconds.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

And I don't see links anywhere either.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2020 - 04:10 AM)

So did Walmart somehow fail put up the Headmasters preorders as promised by Hasbro, or have the listings been taken down again? I cannot find them.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 11:57 AM)

i've seen fan vids of feathered Dinobot and Depthcharge (which got a top comment by someone who claims to be his voice actor) which show how CG progressed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2020 - 08:01 AM)

A great story, and characters which more than make up for the now dated looking (but still clean and fluid.) CGI.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 October 2020 - 03:31 AM)

Thanks to Kingdom I've been rewatching Beast Wars. Still tops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 October 2020 - 03:19 AM)

If they manage to tie GI Joe into Transformers like I hear they're trying to do, and it manages to put Joe product on the shelves again? I will totally forgive even the worst movie ever.

@  Telly : (15 October 2020 - 12:58 AM)

they LOOK cool, but i dont like the size. i grew up in the late 70s and early 80s where action figure size was 3 3/4, so thats what i prefer

@  fourteenwings : (15 October 2020 - 12:32 AM)

I think the new G.I. Joe Classified figures are pretty cool.

@  Telly : (14 October 2020 - 07:11 PM)

speaking of gi joe, just bought my first gi joe figure since...2011? whenever the 30th anniversary/pursuit of cobra was. got the so-called "retro" storm shadow. only got him cause i missed the ultimate version way back when

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2020 - 02:13 PM)

He has to say something eventually...

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2020 - 02:11 PM)

New G.I. Joe anything has been a disappointment. The biggest of which is what I hear they will do with SnakeEyes.

I am not extremely confident that those Megatron legs are transformed completely, and so I think he might end up squatter.  I mean, he's still MASSIVE, but Optimus shouldn't be, like, waist height with him.

I always thought Movie Megatron and Optimus were generally the same size. But apparently the official heights are 28’ for Optimus and 35’ for Megatron? Even still, I think the height difference here is still too much, so hopefully you’re right about the legs collapsing a bit.

But yeah, it’s still just really weird (and impressive) to see a Voyager with so much bulk. It’s really cool to see Hasbro pushing the fact that the budget is per wave instead of per figure, which I assume is the explanation for how this is possible.

My understanding is that movie Megatron is a little bigger than Optimus, but not by a super lot.  

 

Though the ROTF forest battle, in an extremely rare moment of them both standing upright next to each other on the same plane.... they seem to be roughly the same size, i dunno.

I'm extremely cross at anything that makes me want that Megatron after I sprang for the Movie The Best version because I wanted that mold in Not A Stupid Deep Green.

So, I'm cross about this. Either because he's been designed to scale with Starscream and Blackindor, or just because he's good value for money.

I'm also cross about how rubbish that Voyager Optimus looks but I'm still gonna get it to ride Grimlock (even though he's not the design that rides Grimlock SO CROSS)

Megatron always came off as quite a bit thicker and a bit taller than Prime in the films.

Several TFW2005 members have confirmed that they found Thundercracker at their local TRU, so he's definitely out there in the wild.

Just got mine a little while ago. They said the street date was actually sometime in April, but they sold it to me anyway. Presumably on account of my winning, potato-like personality.

I think Optimus' placement just a little bit further back than the other two is dramatically exaggerating the height difference - remember the original pictures of the Scorns together?

 

Huh. So I found pretty good comparison pictures, and they are closer to the same height, but...Megatron's still a lot more larger than I expected.

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.

That's too bad. Well, instead of my stealing Snakas' bandwidth, you can find both of them there, albeit in separate posts. The Prime one is fairly old at this point. Both pictures show clear front views of these two standing on Optimus' backdrop.

 

EDIT: Here they are. Prime is from a slightly higher angle than Megs, so he's going to look a little shorter, but a comparison between where their heads are compared to the backdrop is illuminating.

I don't like how monochrome it is, but otherwise, I have always loved movie Jazz's design. It's, like, a perfect modernisation of the classic character.

He's talking about his belly detailing, that can sorta be interpreted as insect-like legs, I guess. Each "leg" ends in a little spike, it's what's painted copper on Nitro, but Thundercracker leaves the spiky tip black on the bottommost pair. But really the gray paint on the tips of the top two pairs makes them blend in with his belly even more than having them pure black would.
