Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

Because of the mention of "different markets" I think you can probably expect the kind of cybertronian vehicle or alien stuff that gets touted in chinese and what not toylines. Like, "TRON cars" and what not. Though hopefully alot better realized than the hugging WFC alt modes and their "losenges with cockpits" they liked to do at times.

I have no idea how any of the infobites dropped actually come together...

But War Dawn style alt modes with less toy like design and meshing things different people like still says hovercar Bumblebee but now with the hard elbow jab that Aileron would be his repaint.

 

Yes! Aileron! Do it!

 

"War Dawn style alt modes" still isn't a thing though, unless everyone is Dion, a transport drone, or a box.

I just had this terrible thought that the most "G1 with knees" thing to do would be to give everybody fake kibble for Earth modes they don't actually have.

The "bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy" thing 100% sounds to me like "looks more movie-ish". Asian markets have generally been very into the movies/movie aesthetic, right?


That's what it sounds like to me. I always thought Alternity managed to do that pretty well.

If this line finally gives us a nice Voyager or Leader-class Generations Shockwave, then I'm all for it. They've danced around that one for-friggin-ever.

Yeah, I get why people don't like the constant rehashing of the first few years, but on the other hand... potential for a good G1-ish Ratchet. I skipped his Generations toy years ago because it was so ugly.

I'm not sure why but I kind of expect the first wave of this line to be retools of POTP, at least the deluxes. I doult we'll get a voyager Shockwave in the first year, because Shockwave getting a toy in the Cyberverse line but my personal hope is that they revisit Motor Master and redo him with the CW connection ports, mainly because I felt the CW figure was a failure on many levels, even as OP it was a failure to me at least.

Hasbro has said WFC Deluxes will be so different from Prime Wars ones in some way that when we see them we will know why Prime Wars Deluxes could absolutely not be used for the basis for the WFC Fan Chosen 2-packs.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

-ZacWilliam, and maybe no CW-style Combining?

Maybe they'll take another year off from combining so as not to flood the market. I mean, Monstructor and maybe the seacons could fit Pre-war so long as pre-war isn't taken to be 'only vehicles'. Hasbro knows they're popular, ad knows we'd likely want more... so it would potentially make sense to come back to them now and then while trying to keep them 'fresh'

I do expect Hasbro to use the basic torso molds from CW & TR, regardless of what they say offically but as Shadewing said, it could be they taking another year off to scheme their next combiners, aside from the Seacons, they could be looking at the idea of more original combiners, I don't think anyone saw SkyRegin coming when they began releasing the figures, then again, I don't think anyone saw Hasbro doing serious G1 Dinobots beyond Grimlock, let alone having them combine, so its a case of expect the unexpected, at least until later this year when pictures start leaking out showing us what they been doing.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

I think the thing that suggests no PotP retools was the following sentence about starting from a clean slate, all-new, etc. and not, you know, using retools from PotP. The "you'll get it when you see it" line is still ambiguous to me, since it's very specifically about the fan poll characters and sounded to me like he was talking about the fact of the pairing (which is explicitly not about a joint toy gimmick, but some other thing that will be obvious to us.)

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I wonder how Hasbro would even be able to get rid of the stickers since they were apparently a COST measure. Price increase? Maybe a lack of gimmick which lets them spend more on paint?

I’m excited for a line of Dery-esque retro future alt modes, I mean I’ve wanted a proper toy of Bumblebee’s cybertronian alt mode and some tetra jets since I was little! So like I could be very down for what this line has got.

The change in design could be good, but if it veers too far movie that could be well... ugh. Like Universe Ironhide or the WFC (the game) designs: messy. There could be a balance but idk, I’m curious how Hasbro is gonna pull it off with the current budget? If it just means unpainted overly greebly tech detail haphazardly placed across the bot mode then I’m out. Hopefully not. (I also find it odd to try to work that look in when the movie series seems to be winding down?)

Also, if Wheeljack is on the list it means he's probably not part of the planned line, so if he doesn't win, no big white floaty box for Hoverbee to ride in.
