"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

Just got Omega Supreme in the mail from TFSource this week.  WOW what an impressive figure he is. My 2 yr old daughter and 3.5 yr old son were having a blast with him in base mode.  Well worth my wife being mad that I spent that much money.  haha.  

 

Also picked up Huffer today.  Well done Hasbro.  Well done.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

A walmart I swung by today put out some Netflix deluxes....

 

...and they were from the first wave minus Hound and Chromia, which surprised and confused me as those 2 never seemed to move.

Which would be why they ordered the others.

 

Anyone know if there's any backdrop with this new wave? the Teletraan backdrop from the waves 1 and 2 deluxes was complete.

I'd just like to know if there have been any more sightings of the third wave. I've been checking Wal-Marts as often as possible, but all I'm seeing are bare shelves.

I found Netflix deluxe wave 3 at a rural WM near my parents' this evening. Most of the case was there and I only picked up the Deeseus Soldier. He does look pretty good in hand.

Interesting. Not only because of the different packaging, but because it's so similar to their exclusive version released not that long ago. Obviously there is the trailer, different accessories, and colors. But still the same idea as something from about a year ago.

Netflix Deepcover is now up for pre-order from Japanese websites. The teaser from yesterday was for him (I would have thought it would have been the black version, but this one did appear in the series).

Went to Smyths Toys here in the UK, and purchased blue Sideswipe guy and Cheetor. (Wasn’t interested in the others, if I’m being honest.) Nice to see those figures getting a fairly rapid release. Didn’t spot the Megatron spoiler pack set, though, not that it was on my to-buy list, admittedly.

Found all four of wave 3 (after only coming across a lowly Cheetor a couple weeks back).

So I walked off with the other three. But not before seeing a young boy looking at the same figures and walking off with those same three.

Lucked out and found some of them on a Wal-Mart run yesterday. They had two of the Sparkless Datsuns and a Deep Cover. Claimed the Deep Cover for myself, and will be checking other Wal-Marts in the hopes of finding Cheetor and the Deseeus Drone.
