But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

In the vein of the earlier thread for Power of the Primes and the ongoing general thread of everything we have not yet had, what future characters/features/etc. do you hope to see in Siege and the next installments of the War for Cybertron Trilogy?


I continue to hope for more solidly-designed construction as Siege Optimus Prime and Megatron have, and I hope we get more Wreckers in addition to Siege Impactor.

I love the whole Effect Part thing with Battle Masters, and hope that it will continue on through the entire trilogy.

Little explosions and similar.


And speaking of Battle Masters, more animalistic and similar ones. Like some kind of frog/cannon with an acid drool effect part.

I would like more surprises and filling in of holes that I didn't quite remember existed, like Cog, Six-Gun and Brunt. Maybe like Omnibots and Powerdashers and some Soundwave tape minions from 87 or after.

Ideally I'd like more of the latter years stuff that the Prime Wars Trillogy missed. I'm very happy to be getting Omega next year but I hope they fill the last gap and get us Headmaster Scorponok the year after.

The Omnibots being "Reinforcements from Cybertron" would be a good way to keep building the teams after Ark Launch.

Maybe an Alpha Trion since we're being semi-Sunbow with this whole thing. Maybe keep mixing in some Marvel elements like Impactor and do a new Straxus too?

Of course my main thing I would be looking for would be the return of the Legends Class. The Micromasters are okay... but not at the loss of the bestest size!!

I expect to be disappointed, but I'd love a return to proper built-in gimmicks like Prime Wars Trilogy had. "You can connect guns together to make a bigger gun"-type gimmicks have never really done it for me.

Also, a Wheeljack figure, please.

It would have been fun if instead of "Two guns become one gun!" They would have more fully adopted their "resistance" angle and done a couple innocuous looking parts of the alt mode become weaponized. Like G1 Soundwave's batteries.

Or, an example to demonstrate the "resistance" vibe, the transport cube Decepticons that jump off the Huge and Lorry Decepticons and start firing in War Dawn.

Make a Landcross vs Monstructor at a Legion scale and that would be perfect :D

For the aeshetic to taper the hell off with the greeblies already. Dust and grime tampos I can clean off, but these sculpted-in body-length bedsores I can't.




More Battle Masters and Micromasters throughout the trilogy, eventually including Armada Mini-Con homages (Air Military Team! Emergency Team!). Rack N Ruin as a Battlemaster pair would be neat.

Since Magnus and Shockwave bring back in the "guy wears trailer" play pattern for Leaders, let's see a Star Saber. And a Star Convoy.

Generations Selects G2 Defensor, so I don't have to make one.


Sequel should be a mix of Earth and Cybertronian designs. A few token 84-and-friends, maybe a retool of Prime in Earth mode (meh, people would buy it), and then mostly Cybertronian 87+ers who are the focus of the Cybertronian leg of the war. Autobot Targetmasters and Powermasters especially. Can also bring in FSS-done characters like Windsweeper, Grabuge (ergh), etc. to go with Scorponok as the Titan for the line. Third can still be a mix, maybe favoring Earth modes this time so there's a bit of a progression. Idunno.


Keep bringing in females. Gime me a dang Aileron, please. Small Deluxe is fine.

Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!

I like how Brunt looks like a proto-Tank Vehicons, and would love to get something similar for at least the Bike and Jet drones. More things that, like, feel like a prequel -- Impactor being a Decepticon is kinda there, though a bit weird since this is his first mass-release toy and everyone else is as you'd expect.
