The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

18 and 24 are both '67 Beetles in plain yellow. Is there an error or am I missing something?

 

 

18 has a normal right hand; 24 has a gun-hand.

24 seems to have three swappable arms - hand, gun and sword. I'm guessing 18 probably does too, since it does definitely include both the masked and unmasked heads like 24 does.

I actually didn't realize until now that they had swappable anything, but you are quite right. It certainly would give 24 some added value if the parts are exclusive, but I think I'll be sticking with 18 for my personal collection either way.

Apparently Hasbro officially identified it as an EE exclusive at SDCC:
attachicon.gifDifUD4yV4AEGe3G.jpg

Supposedly, all those other stores just buy from EE's wholesale account.


... but then it's also listed at Southern Hobby, a wholesaler. Surely they aren't buying from EE's wholesale account?

Picked up Studio Series Starscream.  He's fantastic.  So much that I'm probably going to end up with the ROTF version just so I can keep the TF1 edition in his pretty, pretty F-22 mode. 

 

I really wish we could get a Thundercracker repaint of him. 

 

How's Bumblebee?  I read on the Wiki that he's got some quality control problems, and I'm pretty sure there was mention of them in this thread a billion pages back.  Is he that bad or is it a more limited thing?  Also, complexity.  More like AOE / DOTM or like ROTF/TF1? 

 

And, uh, Prime, too? Might be nice to have a movie Prime that I'll actually transform for once.

My problem with Bee is limited to the fact that his rear roof/window piece doesn't stay on, like, at all. Otherwise he's a pretty conventional Movie Bee toy, but smaller.

 

Prime has kind of a bleh deco but is a fantastic action figure with a perfectly good transformation and decent truck mode.

bee is way better than i expected but learning how to transform him in such a way that his roof part doesnt pop off took like an hour. He requires patience but once you put that in hes a really great bee.

Prime on the other hand is still my number one figure from this line and in relation to all the other movie primes( mp notwithstanding ) is second only to the rotf leader mold. get prime asap.
Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

I just wish he had those extra pins in those roof parts like the TLK version had.

Hm, i liked the darker shade of blue the promo render (and other toy) implied. This way reminds me of Incinerator a bit, realistic grey copter with garish blue bits sticking out, though not quite as bad.

Ratchet's bio mentions Sentinel Prime (as a bad guy, no less), which may be a hint at a future release. Would be nice to get another go at a Voyager.
And not at all surprising, but Shadow Raider is Lockdown's mercenaries.

I will freely admit that Studio Series is the line I remain vaguely excited about since most of the TLK figures won me over pretty hard (because Scorn, Nitro, Cogman, and Sqweeks were all pretty great) beforehand and we're getting some nice variety, even if it's guys that have been done before.  But if you were just seeing robot modes, you'd be hard pressed to say, oh, AoE Lockdown and SS Lockdown were based on exactly the same movie model, which is interesting.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
