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.

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.

Seems you choose between Perceptor and Astrotrain and Thundercracker and Skywarp.

 

Meaning either Perceptor or Astrotrain will be produced and either Thundercracker or Skywarp would be produced.

 

So possible outcomes are:

  • Perceptor & Thundercracker
  • Perceptor & Skywarp
  • Astrotrain & Thundercracker
  • Astrotrain & Skywarp

If Astrotrain was going to be the original Hasbro colors I'd buy him.  Or even some gray version that isn't the same as eHOBBY's.

 

Perceptor seems likely to win even though he got a reissue just a few years ago. 

 

All of them have seen Hasbro reissues within the last 15 years.

I read that graphic as indicating two rounds of voting, Perceptor vs Astrotrain and Thundercracker vs Skywarp, with the winners facing each other in the indicated FINALS. And the caption says "which G1 classic bot," singular.

If they are talking straight G1 Reissues as accurate as possible (which I assume is the point) then I guess Perceptor is the most interesting to me. If they want to do the G1 Cartoon/Japanese colors on Astrotrain then I'd like that 100%.

 

I don't need either of the Seekers and I'm pretty ambivalent on with I like better anyway. Honestly I'd rather seen that mold done as someone new like Redwing or Bitstream or something. I know thats not the point of these but new characters are what I'd need to want this mold again.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, odd that it's for Spring 2020 though. I wonder what they have planned for G1 reissues over 2019 to keep the series "alive."

I'd imagine it's a result of the current toylines being so aggressively geewun. Your nostalgia bone is getting adequate calcium from new toys, so it's hard to get excited over a toy that's basically the same except worse and probably more expensive.

My own G1 reissue interest has waned now that I have genuinely better versions of so many of the characters. That said, I'd absolutely have more interest in G1 reissues today if they could give me options that I didn't already snatch up 15 years ago (or consciously passed up at that time).

Frankly, I don't think any of these four are good reissue choices. Both Perceptor and Astrotrain have been reissued by Hasbro within the last decade, and making us having to pick just one between Skywarp and Thundercracker means that if either of them wins then we'll be one member short of completing the Seeker trio with Starscream.
 
Of these choices, the only one of these I'd actually pick if I felt absolutely compelled to pick one would be Astrotrain but ONLY if it were to come not in his original 1985 Hasbro retail deco but in the never-released prototype deco first seen in the 1985 toy magazines that the cartoon animators used for reference in coloring Astrotrain's character model, which the later e-HOBBY exclusive "Astrotrain Proto Color Version" was meant to evoke but the shades and hues of its gray and purple were off.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

What I want to know is that if these are the "Finals", what were the preliminaries? What were my other choices?

 

Frankly, I don't need any of these and thusly might not vote at all. If Astrotrain was going to be anime colours, THAT might interest me.

If it is supposed to be a sports bracket, these four aren't the "FINALS".

 

The "FINALS" are who wins this round for each bracket. So if Perceptor and Skywarp defeat Astrotrain and Thundercracker, the "FINALS" would be Perceptor vs. Skywarp.

 

But... yeah... some explanation as to if that's what we're actually seeing would be nice.
