Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

Since I don't see a topic:

 

https://io9.gizmodo....stic-1823007404

 

Mixed feelings about these. Megatron and Starscream look great, Shockwave and Grimlock look interestingly different, Optimus and Bumblebee are meh.

 

Edit: The first image seems to feature different figures than the rest of the piece, with a Starscream with big, Machine Wars-ish turbines on his wings.

They look pretty interesting (except Starscream's bare lower legs).

 

I like the designs mostly.

 

It is very confusing using (yet again!) the name of a size class for the name of a series.  :wtf


Most of the figures in the first image aren't even talked about it seems.

After taking a minute to think about it, I've decided I'm not immediately into these, but if the show turned out to be really good, it could make me interested.

Good bits:

  • Megatron's honestly really cool tank mode
  • Starscream's Skyquake-esque jet thrusters that won't be on the actual character model
  • Shockwave being a weird crabtank thing

Otherwise, I feel like these are sapping my enthusiasm for Cyberverse as I look at them. There's barely any imagination displayed at all - which is, yes, what we knew Cyberverse would likely be, but that doesn't make it not disappointing.

 

Also, where's Windblade? She's meant to be one of the main characters.

Article got posted in reverse order, to judge from the phrasing of each section.

 

These all feel pretty Cyber Battalion-ish to me, just with spring-loaded gimmicks added.

All of these look like good toys for little kids.

None of these look like anything I need to own.* They are all characters I already have in a design and style better keeping with my interest (IE generations.)

I'd consider buying any new/uncommon characters in this style or these toys for a young kid in my life, but otherwise these are an interesting toyetic total pass for me.

*Shockwave may be the one exception depending on how small the figure is next to Gen toys.


-ZacWilliam, the Io9 article suffers from abysmal last minute editing clearly shuffling the explanation of size classes till almost the end after they've been talked about a bunch, and it's pretty clear the Scout part was originally meant to be first.

I'll take a Skywarp please!

 

I wonder if any of the other Seekers will be in this.  Or if Starscream (and others) will always fill that role.

Shockwave reminds me of this horror trope where something LOOKS human but then bends-over backwards to walk on all fours and scurry after you like a gross crab-like thing.

Considering the article's listing of a $15 price point and the term "Warrior" class, I think he'll be no different in size than any given modern deluxe class figure.

I know. It's just I have to see how I feel about that standing with Classics Seekers and Leader Scale Megatron.

-ZacWilliam, it's gonna be shorter than I want, but it's design is very nice, so we'll see...

I like the aesthetic a lot, but in the end it's basically just a bunch of G1 versions of G1 guys, and so unless the show is really great, or inexplicably still somehow part of Aligned, I doubt I'm going to feel any need to pick any of them up.

That being said, is down as I am on how constantly beholden to the past the current TF teamis, they're not afraid of incorporating gimmicks, which has actually made the last couple of years of Generations something like real toys, and I'll be interested to see what kind of gimmicks they incorporate here.

I mean, come on. Hive Swarm Attack for Bumblebee? That ought to be good stuff.

Shockwave's alt mode is hilarious.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Meh.

 

Not new news, but I really don't like the current design team's seeming obsession with making Starscream more pointy and angular instead of boxy.

 

Shockwave's alt mode is bad hilarious. Grimlock's design is way too busy and confused.

And Rescue Bots. And be thankful that the main TF team aren't in charge of movie or Rescue Bots, because then it'd just be G1.
