I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

That "6" towards the end of the UPC looks a bit suspect (out of alignment with the rest of the numbers).

Googling that number that starts with E at the top of the box in the photo:

So, yeah, looks like an edited photo and some April Fool's "fun", which, given the date, pretty much everyone probably already suspected/concluded, anyway.

I don't quite see how someone could fake a shipping case of MISB G1 nowadays, but removed the post just in case.

I'm expecting it to be Siege Megatron and Siege Soundwave (G1 redecos).

I mean, the presence of Megatron makes it obvious these won't be G1 reissues...

Although it is funny to think of a G1 Megatron painted in bright red. But no, I can't imagine they'd do that.

Tra Gen is used typically for Generations too, not G1 stuff.

So it's probably redecos of recent Generations figures.

But it says "G1" in the product description too.

That could mean "redecoes in (more) G1 colors".

 

I certainly don't expect it to be the original G1 Megatron in any colors...and I doubt it's Action Master Megatron.

Someone who works at Walmart said the first week of August the planogram lists a TRA G1 SOUNDBLASTER going into the Transformers set.

I wonder if thats Blaster. He won that fan poll so we know hes coming. Of course it could also be you know Soundblaster.

I'm trying to think what it would take to get me excited about a Soundblaster (who I generally care nothing about) rerelease. I think any Cassette that hadn't already got a rerelease would do it.

-ZacWilliam, extra points maybe for a new cassette repaint character but that's probably pretty unlikely. Ratbat I could see. Slugfest and Overkill would be cooler.

I wouldn’t doubt it at all if we got a Soundblaster before actually getting Blaster and let alone a Twin Cast.

Cassettes would be nice to get more of, and not just Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Buzzsaw and Laserbeak.

So the first four "Legion Class" (Mini-Vehicles) figures, i.e. Bumblebee, Outback, Swerve and Tailgate, which were originally available via Australian clothing chain CottonOn two years ago, have now been found at Kmart stores in Australia. And while the CottonOn versions came in European packaging (with four languages), these are the non-European packaging versions with texts in English and French only.

https://www.tfw2005....tralia.1195408/

 

Oddly, the Kmart Australia website depicts an outdated (?) version of Outback's stock photos that depict an iunpainted visor, while the final toy has a blue visor, which is also seen in those very same stock photos at the US Walmart and ToyWiz websites.

Maybe the lack of diecast makes him cost less than the others? Just guessing, since this is the first of these new reissues to not contain diecast anyway.
