That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

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

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.

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.

But for real, with all this G1 G1 G1 Hasbro is into now, he has Prowl and Bluestreak's weapons (albeit with Bluestreak's in the wrong place). Doesn't that seem weird?


How does he have Bluestreak's weapons? Those are very specifically Smokescreen's cartoon shoulder cannons, with a boxy rear section and raised up on trapezoid things. Bluestreak's cartoon cannons are entirely round and sit flat on top of his shoulders.

 

 

 

The Smokescreen figure comes equipped with a W-45 Acid Pellet Blaster accessory and 2 W-50 Volt-Beam Cannon accessories that can mount on his shoulders or the hood of his vehicle mode.

 

"Prowl will keep at a task for as long as it takes. Strives to find reason and logic in everything. A listener, not a talker. Has most sophisticated logic center of all Autobots. Able to analyze and advise on complex combat situations almost instantaneously. Fires wire-guided incendiary missiles and high-corrosive acid pellets. The unexpected can often scramble his circuits."

 

"Bluestreak often talks incessantly and inanely. Lightens the situation for all Autobots with his good-natured manner. Despite formidable weaponry and blazing speed, he hates war. Haunted by memory of Decepticons destroying his home-city. Fires bombs up to 8.3 miles and lightning-like 80,000 volt beam up to 12 miles of limited accuracy. Often inhibited by his disdain for combat."

In any case, I sure hope that Bluestreak has different shoulder cannons from Barriscreen's. I much prefer the ones he has and I'd like a pair for Prowl too.

So is this only available through Diamond or something? Or will it be up on Pulse and whatnot too?


If history has taught us anything, it's that every newly-reveleaed toy ever is without fail a worldwide exclusive to whatever venue just happenes to reveal it first.
"'[Foreigners] at least need to be able to speak proper German.' Okay, what the hell is that supposed to be? Proper German'? Where do they speak that? Have you ever been there? Are you German? Can you engage in a conversation in a Swabian pub? Most people from Cologne already fail at asking for directions in the Eifel region."

Ohhh, right, that I suspect is the result of the thing where a given COMBAT System weapon mould keeps the same name across releases. Sideswipe and Six-Gun both have "W-5 Gyro Blasters", for instance. I imagine Bluestreak's copy got written first and then Smokescreen got stuck with his weapon name.

Although weirdly, that's not a hard and fast rule, because Red Alert and Barricade have unique names for their redeco weapons, so who knows.

I didn't know Sideswipe and Sixgun had the same weapon (or even that they shared a weapon mold - isn't that, like, weird?) but I did know Barricade didn't have Bluestreak's guns, so I didn't realize there were other places the molds shared weapon names. Fair enough.

 

EDIT: Obviously it's also weird that Bluestreak's rifle is his shoulder launchers now, but maybe Bluestreak doesn't come with the rifle.

How would one go about ordering figures from Diamond? Could I just go down to a local comic shop and ask to order it?

I'd assume that comic shops have to order an entire case of Smokescreens, so it may not be quite as simple as just asking, unless they're confident they can sell another seven Smokescreens to other customers.

I've been a little lax on following the news on this Smokescreen. Do we know/expect he'll be on like HasbroPulse and Amazon eventually too?

-ZacWilliam, just rather not pay shipping if possible.

He's a "Generations Select", which is what Combat Megatron and Star Convoy are, so if he follows that precedent he'll be on Hasbro Pulse but probably not Amazon.

Makes me wonder if Prowl and Bluestreak will share the same head, or if they'll give Blue a head more akin to his character model?

 

I could see it going either way honestly, and if they didn't he would still be a unique combination of parts.

 

Prowl - Prowl head, handgun, lights

Barricade - Smokescreen head, shoulder cannons, lights

Smokescreen - Smokescreen head, shoulder cannons, handgun

Bluestreak (presumably) - Prowl or New head, shoulder cannons, (presumably) handgun

 

So that no one figure is an exact same makeup as any of the others.
