@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

It looks like those are the same ones Hasbro Pulse's Instagram put up. They definitely let you see that his weird-looking mouth is an artifact of his little triangular lower jaw being open. Hopefully that's more attractive in person - I've always liked the working jaws on HA Barricade and Soundwave, but this one does not thrill me so far.

 

Everything else, though...

Bit more expensive than Bumblebee.

 

But I'm fine with that if he's better than Optimus (not going to be so difficult) and Bumblebee (will be difficult).

Does Barricade really have that much white on his face in the first movie? I always think of his face as being mostly black, but it could be because my main perception of him is from hazy memories of the film and the original '07 deluxe that I still have.

It is more silver than you remember but less silver than this. A lot of the silver on the movie TFs is so chromey that it's constantly reflecting darker things than itself. That being said, there's still too much of it here.

I want to spend extra money and get Barricade now, but also I don't, and also especially not RK shipping extra money, and also his US release is supposed to be my birthday, and how can I resist MPM Barricade for my birthday?

Just picked up mine from the post office, and gave him a quick back-and-forth.
 
He's amazing.  Easily the most solid of the Masterpiece Movie releases to date, and certainly the easiest to transform.  He feels very much a refinement of a number of the things the original Deluxe and Human Alliance figures did, while smoothing out almost all of the proportion issues those toys had.  No real instances of floating swing arms and awkward panel massaging, everything comes together very intuitively.  The only real trick initially is figuring out in what ways the arms/sides of the car tab in, so that you can free everything up to start things moving.  I'd also like to note to pay attention to his head position when going back to car mode (if you weren't paying attention when going to robot mode the first time).  It needs to swings all the way back on the balljoint, so that his head crest winds up poking out the bottom of the car.  Otherwise it prevents his legs from moving all the way up into position.

 

Now, to get through the negatives, in part due to his somewhat inhuman anatomy, kibble arrangement, and transformation mechanisms, he's not as wildly poseable in the way that some of the recent Masterpieces are.  Waist rotation severely restricted (you have to unpeg a whole bunch of back stuff to give it more that 10 degrees of clearance, and that makes the rest of his torso slightly unstable because that back shell assembly is what holds everything together).  While it's nice that he's got the accurate buzzsaw mace weapon, indeed having to practically untransform that whole forearm makes the rest of the arm look pretty clunky, especially the back windscreen piece that has to just hang there, instead of folding up nicely into the mass.  Biceps don't freely rotate due to how the elbow joint collides with his shoulder panels.  No real wrist joints, although you can unpeg them and kludge a bit more movement out of them than is intended.

 
But honestly, none of those flaws really matters to me.  It's Barricade, finally looking like the monstrous and powerful badass that he was onscreen, instead of the often awkwardly gangly and unintuitively articulated mass that his toys usually wound up being.
 
He's pleasantly hefty in-hand.  He's about the same size as Bumblebee in vehicle mode, but feels more densely packed.  And maybe bigger chunks of diecast.  Didn't break out a scale or anything, but he feels a good 20% heavier than his nemesis.  This also translates to robot mode.  Because most of his car mass is in his arms (as per the norm for Barricade), rather than tucked away inside, he balloons out greatly in robot mode and gives a far more bulky silhouette than 'Bee.

Well damn.  On second pass, I find a small detail I didn't catch the first time around.  His rear wheels (the ones on his wrists) actually split in half and spread apart on the axle, slightly, to replicate his "transformed" wheels from the movie model.  Such a small, inconsequential detail, and a bit of a surprising inclusion since they didn't bother to do anything with Prime's wheels (albeit, his wheel transformations are far more impractical and costly to replicate)..
