Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

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.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

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

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

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

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

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

This was one of the reveals from TFCon last weekend, and it looks like pre-orders might start to go up soon, so that seems like a good enough time to give him a thread.

 

TFCon reveal here: http://www.tfw2005.c...y-lynx.1156104/

 

This is going to be released in two parts, as per the placards tentatively dated for Q3 and Q4 this year.  While technically part of their Classics-verse "Reformatted" lineup, the toy doesn't rock the boat much in terms of stylization, so can fit comfortably into an MP collection as well depending on your scaling needs.  For those that don't mind him being just slightly bigger than a Dinobot, he'll do the trick.  If you want a ginormous "stands eye-to-eye with Combiners" Lynx, you may have to wait a bit (Gigapower teased one several years back, but given how slowly they work, that could very well be vaporware at this point).

 

The lynx component looks like it's nearing final development stages, with final plastic molding, paint, and LED features on display.  The bird component is still a work in progress.

 

Glamour shots of Magna/lynx were posted today, as well as a pre-order on their Chinese Taobao storefront:

MMC sky lynx!

The Taobao listing seems to be listing Magna at 860 Yuan, I think.  Unless that's 860 + 50 down payment for 910 total, I'm not familiar with how Taobao listings work.  So at current exchange rates, though, that's about $130 for just the lynx.  Given the size of him, that seems pretty fair for 3P pricing, but you have to consider that it'll probably be double that cost for Sky Lynx as a whole, so you have to judge whether $260 for the character is what you're willing to pay.

 

If anybody else gets around to him, they're probably going to aim towards the higher end of his various scales, and he'll be even more expensive.  Probably along the lines of Planet X's WFC Trypticon, or the various Omega Supremes out there at the moment, split into two components at $200 a pop.

Oh man he's so pretty.

 

The articulation in the Lynx's torso! That part of the G1 figure always kinda looked like a dinosaur or something to me, but with all that movement he really feels like a big cat!

The shuttle half looks excellent, but I don't know about that lynx.  It's a little too heavy on the standard MMC styling.

I was thinking the same, but it leans just enough away from it that I think I'll pick it up.

My budget is super-tight of late, so I'll probably pass on these. If that changes, however, I might take the plunge, because I love these designs.

$120 seems like a steal for a 3P toy of that size, especially considering that Kultur (Tarn) costs the same.  I was expecting a touch higher based on the Taobao pricing, but I think for whatever reason MMC's toys have been a bit pricier in China than outside it.

I just received Magna. I just noticed that mine doesnt have that slot located in the upper back thats been pointed out in reviews thats supposed to connect to the shuttle/bird. Was there a change in the design or did I get a defective one?

Yes, I opened the chest and sure enough, the raised piece with the open slot is inside so i think you’re right, it was assembled upside-down. I’ve been emailing with BBTS to resolve this. This sucks. I didn’t even notice until afte I already applied autobot symbols.
