Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

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)

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

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

Maybe Hasbro will release him without the trailer??

Maybe Takara will make sure the trailer pegs in differently than MP-10s just to be dicks??

The trailers probably won't be compatible anyway since the back end of this new Optimus looks to be half as tall as the bloated back end of MP10.

No idea how anyone thought that that back end on MP-10 made any sense. It led to bloated legs that werent really accurate to anything. The one thing I always preferred about MP-1.

This looks to move away from my preferred aesthetic a bit much, but credit where credit is due for apparently resolving the truck grille abs so they don't result in him having a flat, sunken-in stomach (MP-01) or very obviously not using the same parts in both modes (MP-10).

... and the MP1 tail was accurate to.. what, exactly...?

Seriously, Prime's huge chunky legs back there will never be accurate. Trucks are flat out skeletal behind the cab.

I mean theyre both terrible, but I maintain that MP-10 looks worse here, and winds up with worse legs in bot mode.

MP10s chunky shins are taller in proportion to the cab but thats only because Mp01s cab was vertically stretched out.

Toyhappy covered the toy show, Transformers coverage starts 5 minutes in.

 

 

Three observations:

 

1) I'm amused that the Transformers booth has English speaking reps, and if memory serves, it's had English speaking reps at TTS before.

 

2) Hah, that's the Energon Optimus Prime on display with all the other Cybertron Leaders.

 

3) The Zoids and their battery powered gimmicks are sick.

Anyway I'd like a Prime that matches the animation model and hopefully has articulation matching the recent MPs and something about MP-10's proportions felt off to me and I basically just got into collecting MPs so I guess I'm the only one happy about this announcement.

 

Sorry about that.

The thing I like the best about the Gold Lagoon figures is that Optimus has gold tires.  I don't think we ever usually get rubber tires that aren't black.  Shockaract had those white treads (which mine rotted away :().

So I want to be like "maybe, but" but there's not a lot of maybe, the windows aren't fake. There's a strip taken out the middle and they collapse together over it in robot mode, like the hood chest of Alternity Convoy or like Toy World Primorion in reverse. There's also a tiny strip of non-window that materializes from lands unknown to give the windows back their missing frame edge.

You're right, and good job.

If the windows are real, could the abs grille be part of the actual grille? Have they made a Masterpiece Optimus Prime that doesn't throw out what is good about Optimus Prime as a design?

More concerningly, will they do a version with a rounder Marvel Comics head that I'll actually want to buy?

Fake chest windows

There's also a tiny strip of non-window that materializes from lands unknown to give the windows back their missing frame edge.

Looking at it further, I think the chest windows are actually the backsides of the regular truck windshield.  I'm kind of wondering if the whole front of Optimus' torso is really on the backside of the truck's front, sort of like an insanely complex version of Powermaster Prime's cab robot.

With how Masterpieces are designed these days, that's entirely plausible.
