On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@  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.

For me, Springer's so forgettable because I only ever saw the figure one time at one Target (on a day preceding his street date) and never again. He came and went like he was never even part of the line.

T30 Springer has a lot to like, but I hate how the head always pops off when I transform him. The proportions are too lean for my idea of Springer as well.

I haven't played with a Siege Springer and probably won't. He looks good but I don't like how complicated those shins are. Also the swords seem like a big step down from T30.

I'm the weirdo who still really likes the G1 toy. The simple sliders in his transformation feel more like a real machine than either of these newer ones.

The way the swords were handled really sucked.  I would have much preferred that they just ganked the T30 method and added extra pegs on the sides or something.  It also bugs the hell out of me that they jumped through all these hoops to get it so close to the G1 animation model, but got the angle of his shoulder fender things wrong.

I never quite understood the love for Air Hammer ... at least on mine the shoulders very easily pop off and I thought the underneath with angled upper arms where a beast body would be looked too odd... and nothing really stood out as particularly interesting about him to me...?

 

This thread is literally the first time I've ever seen anyone but me be pro-Air Hammer. When he came out everyone was all too busy being unnnnnh quickstrike from the shooooow to appreciate a charismatic little flying shark.

I've always liked Air Hammer, but have wished that his wings were articulated instead of one big solid stationary piece. If the wings could flap or even fold up a bit, it'd make his robot mode much more dynamic and further enhance his already fun play value.

I took an Airhammer and a Quickstrike and combined them to make my own Shark/Cobra/Crab/Chicken/Opabina super-fuzor fan character called Platypus Prime (where I got the name idea). He thought he turned into a toaster, years before Ejector was a thing. He was rather mixed up, I still have it!

Air Hammer has iffy tolerances and the wings are too static, but he's such a good creature design.

If he gets overlooked, it's only because Fuzors were so cool all around.

Air Hammer's only true failing is not getting interestingly redecoed as a Blentron for Beast Wars Neo.

 

Before the semanticists show up, yes, I know he got retconned in later via Japanese stuff along with every other non-Blentron Fuzor, but that's not as cool as actually getting a new deco out of it.

Once my mother bought me a little baggie of Transformer stuff from a flea market.  It consisted of an incomplete Airazor and then some random limbs.  Air Hammer's fin arm was in there.  He was the one that almost was.
