I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

A school-bus combiner called Valedictorion.

@  TriBlurr : (13 October 2019 - 12:16 AM)

Honor-Roll

@  Arazyr : (11 October 2019 - 08:18 AM)

I like that one.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (09 October 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Oh, how about Dropout?

@  Pinkcolliebot : (09 October 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm beginning to put together The TF Roll Out Short Hot Rod's Presentation!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (09 October 2019 - 02:35 PM)

Truant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 October 2019 - 12:26 PM)

Haslab Unicron may change the direction of Cyberverse or the netflix series.

Bus-Top has a very GoBot vibe

@  Bass X0 : (08 October 2019 - 10:51 AM)

I actually never heard of the name Megalodon until recently.

@  Noideaforaname : (08 October 2019 - 09:44 AM)

Bus-Top, Omnibus, Cerebus, Busicus, Busicon

@  Benbot : (08 October 2019 - 08:55 AM)

What's a good name for a school bus Transformer?

@  lastmaximal : (08 October 2019 - 12:57 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 October 2019 - 11:58 PM)

We're all gonna die!

Robot Mode: Blot is a heavy retool of Rippersnapper, so the basic setup of the figure is more or less identical. He makes an excellent generic Decepticon soldier, too, seeing as his robot mode doesn’t immediately convey what he transforms into, none of this “monster”-parts are easily visible. None of which really matters, though, as Blot simply looks cool. The black and purple coloring easily marks him as a Decepticon, the robot is nicely articulated and detailed, and it just looks very good overall.

Speaking of details, Blot has quite a few of them. He comes with claws on his arms, which always looks pretty cool, and I really like his face sculpt, which implies that he wears a really big and bushy moustache and a chin beard, too. He is also one of the few figures that doesn’t look wildly misshapen when wearing the combiner fists as chest armor. Whether or not you put a Prime Master into it is, of course, entirely up to you. It still looks better, though, when he uses it as an additional weapon along with his rifle.

Overall Blot is simply a superbly done Deluxe-class robot. No complaints at all, I really like him.

Alternate Mode: Much like his G1 predecessor did, Blot transforms into … yeah, what exactly is he? A kind of meched-out warrior ogre? A demonic ape? I’m really not sure, but it doesn’t change the fact that he looks really cool in this mode, too. Oh, and fun side note: he is barely any bigger than G1 Blot in this mode, despite being a much larger robot.

The ogre (let’s call it that for simplicity’s sake) comes with a kind-of stock for attaching Blot’s rifle to in this mode and additionally you can attach the combiner fist / chest armor as a kind of rucksack on top of his hump, which looks pretty good. The robot fists flip in to turn the middle of his three claws into an opposable thumb (kind of) and while the short ogre legs aren’t really all that posable, they do nicely, too. Overall nicely done, easily one of the best “monster”-modes I’ve seen.

Combiner Mode: Blot becomes an arm or a leg of the Abominus combiner and is compatible with pretty much every torso-robot from Combiner Wars and Power of the Primes, too. More on Abominus once I’ve finished reviewing the individual team members.

Remarks: Like with the rest of the Terrorcons, there isn’t really much to Blot in the way of character development or media presence apart from being part of his team and Abominus. But while he will never be character of the year, I believe, Blot is currently in the running for the Transformers Hall of Fame Toy of the Year 2018. And while I’m still irked that Battletrap was disqualified for actually being two toys instead of one, I sincerely hope Blot succeeds. He deserves it.

Overall I must say that Blot and Rippersnapper are in a stiff competition for my favorite Terrorcon. Given that they are using the same base mold, that’s hardly surprising. Blot is a superb Deluxe-class figure for everyone who doesn’t mind that he transforms into a robot monster instead of a vehicle and the fact that you need him to complete Abominus is almost inconsequential. Go out and buy him now!

Rating: A-

I LOVE him. Far and away the best of the PotP Terrorcons in beast mode. The way his legs fold up to make him this massive, low-slung nose monster is just perfect, and puts him a good step beyond just "folded up robot box with beast limbs attached" which is how the other three small Terrorcons went.  Also super clever how his center claw folds out.

Robert is made to withstand plenty of play, and transforms from car to robot! Go, Robert, go!

Why will we solve after Robert grasps the abysmal winter's ulcer? He may change rural tailors, do you join them? The films, tapes, and spoons are all good and fresh.
