Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

Thundercracker notwithstanding, I'm happy with the non-screen-character toys I already have, so I'm in no hurry to re-buy any of them.

 

Weeeell...maybe a larger, better-looking Stockade.

We now have an official listing for studio series leader class 86 Slag with Daniel

https://www.tfw2005....daniel.1196652/

For anyone paying attention in the Beast Wars rumor thread. The source of those rumors also leaked that this figure would be a thing.

They also dropped hints of 86 voyager Hot Rod and Scourge.

This...lends credibility to his other leaks....Christ . Next year is going to be awesome.

According to the leaker. Hot Rod has a bunch of accessories/gimmicks. Like his saw blade and flip down visor.

Sounds like he'll be a smallish voyager. We've seen more size-variants within classes over the entirely of SIEGE and EARTHRISE so far, which just isn't surprising to mme any longer after Studio Series paved the way for that.

 

If we get a whole set of new Hasbro Dinobots that are good after I've sold off the POTP ones, and purchased FP Cubrar and Volar to go with Columpio and my PX Vulcun, I'm going to laugh.

I'm not really sure why Hot Rod would be a Voyager.

Nor I. Especially with the modern deluxe ranging from Prowl-size to Ironhide-size as is.

 

It’d be especially weird if both leaks are true and we got a deluxe-sized Hot Rod at the voyager price point in SS and a voyager-sized Rodimus Prime at the leader price point in WFC3.

Apparently today is my day for making lists.

I was curious about the potential breadth for 86 SS toys so I ran through TF:TM in my brain (Yay, I knew having watched it often enough to have it memorized would come in handy someday!) and pulled out all the characters with a notable (being generous) part:

Arbilus
Kranix
Laserbeak
Optimus
Jazz
Cliffjumper
Bumblebee
Spike in Exo-Suit
Ironhide
Megatron
Soundwave
Starscream
Dead Ratchet
Dead Brawn
Dead Prowl
Dead Ironhide
Hot Rod
Daniel
Kup
Insecticons
Blitzwing
Ultra Magnus
Arcee
Blurr
Perceptor
Blaster and Tapes
Springer
Devastator
Grimlock
Slag
Sludge
Swoop
(Snarl)
Dead Prime
Galvatron
Cyclonus
Scourge and Sweeps
King Starscream
Dead Starscream
Alicon
Sharcticons
Wheelie
3 or 4 types of Quintessons
Wreck Gar
Half Dozen-ish notable Junkion Variations.
Rodimus Prime

Now if you subtract guys that have just or are concurrently having toys in other lines you get:

Arbilus
Kranix
Jazz
Spike in Exo-Suit
Dead Ratchet
Dead Brawn
Dead Prowl
Dead Ironhide
Hot Rod
Daniel
Kup
Insecticons
Blitzwing
Blurr
Perceptor
Blaster and Tapes
Grimlock
Slag
Sludge
Swoop
(Snarl)
Galvatron
Cyclonus
Scourge and Sweeps
King Starscream
Dead Starscream
Wheelie
2 or 3 types of Quintessons
Wreck Gar
Half Dozen-ish notable Junkion Variations.

So we already have theoretically leaked:
Jazz
Kup
Blurr
Gnaw
Rodimus
Cyclonus
Grimlock with Wheelie
Slag with Daniel


Leaving for Future Waves:

Arbilus
Kranix
Spike in Exo-Suit
Dead Ratchet
Dead Brawn
Dead Prowl
Dead Ironhide
Insecticons
Blitzwing
Perceptor
Blaster and Tapes
Sludge
Swoop
(Snarl)
Galvatron
Scourge and Sweeps
King Starscream
Dead Starscream
2 or 3 types of Quintessons
Wreck Gar
Half Dozen-ish notable Junkion Variations.

Obviously some of those have better odds than others.

In my oh-so human weakness, I could conceivably buy any or all of those. But as for ones I'd be actively excited about:

 

Quintesson Executioner

Random Jukions

Blitzwing (I don't honestly love either the T30 or TR ones)

Blaster (how the heck was he not in Siege?)

 

Also, we saw Huffer in the background in a couple of shots. I would very much like a Huffer toy that is designed from the start to be a Huffer toy.

So yeah. Got confirmation from the leaker. Wheelie and Daniel are small non articulated figures. They just there as cool add ins. Or in Wheelies case to replicate movie scenes. Probably tiny so he can ride on Grimlock's head.

Bummer....I was kinda hoping for a new improved Legends sized Wheelie, because the Titans Return one is kinda crap...

 

Ah well, hopefully this means that Grimlock and Slag will be bigger bots then, like Studio Series Shockwave is.

Had a discount code so picked up Jeep Bee.

Really like him. His solo movie generally has much more pleasing designs than the Bay movies (wish he wasn't stuck with the Bay head though). I'd been looking into getting Clunker Bee but this just feels better to me. Cool jeep mode and his robot mode has the perfect form for a scrappy little Autobot.
