Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

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)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  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)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  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)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  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)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 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

Continue the War for Cybertron past the Ark launch and use bots that aren't only G1. Could always be the unshown losses of the War previously. The CD Hot Shot head retool of Hound gives me hope in this. But characters from Prime like Bulkhead, Knockout. Animated Lockdown, and Lugnut (Both do have kinda G1 appearances in IDW, but both toys are Movie line based), a unique Slipstream, RiD Strongarm etc.

I know the forthcoming Omega is unlikely to use the Ark as it's body like Animated, But I wouldn't be against the ark becoming an actual transforming Teletraan.

All the cassettes as Micromasters. Frumble, Buzzsaw, and Ratbat. Rewind, Eject, Steeljaw, and Ramhorn. Slugfest and Overkill. Squawkbox and Slamdance (non-Flywheels redeco). The Japanese dinos. Cobalt Sentries. The e-hobby reissue redecos. Kiss Players. Autoscout. New guys. All of them. ALL of them. ALL THE CASSETTES!!! And I guess maybe a new Blaster to go with them.


More Combiners. Mainly Piranacon and Monstructor. Would also love to get Dinoking, a Leozack Liokaiser torso, and a Lancer limb. Maybe even a G2 shuttle Blast Off. And if I'm really swinging for the fences, slip in a Battle Gaia somehow.


Scorponok. Titan, Leader, whichever. Preferably both.


More pleasant surprises. The stuff I never ask for and never see coming often ends up being the best stuff available.

New characters.  More Rooks and Alpha Bravo's please. You can add more G1 to G1. It doesn't have to just be guys that were there back in the 1980s.  Slide some new bots in there. Surprise! Jumpracer was there fighting Decepticons all the time! And she's gonna keep doing it!


Completed Micromaster teams.  I'm pretty sure they said that wasn't going to happen, but it'd be great. Or, you know, NEW tiny bots that turn into cars and jets.


Grandus designed to interact with micromasters and minicons.


G2 Sideswipe.  Razorbeast.


Beasts, but that's probably not going to happen.  Although I do like the G1-as-beasts idea.


Prime as something other than a truck. Maybe in the SIEGE 1980s he turns into a cool sports car instead. Or a van.  Or firetruck.  With removable armor. And flashing lights.


Really, just some more new characters.  The best part of BW was how all those other toys could be lurking just off screen. Even if they're just unused diaclone or concept colors as new bots.

More Micromasters is the obvious thing for me. Ideally including Combiner Transports because I want a new Pipeline and Gusher. 


And I hope the alleged WFC plot can unfold to some reasonably visible degree in the toyline since who knows if we'll see anything anywhere else.

My hope is that War for Cybertron will lead into something like, "War in Space," where other planets like Caminus and Velocitron get involved and giving us the opportunity for toys of Knock Out, Windblade, Override, etc.

That could be a good excuse for the Seige figures looking like they been to Earth and then gone back to space for some reason and along the way in the battles, they replace Earth desgin parts with Cybertron ones, the way I view those figures is more of a return to Cybertron then pre-earth look

That's two new characters for every returning character! That would be AMAZING in a modern main toy line.

I want:

1) A new female designed mold that doesn't suck as much as the Elita Limb mold to get used this much (for different girl characters not the Elita gals or Arcee again).

2) The micro-fiction on/for the toys to move away from the boring weapon focused G.I.Joe junk of Seige and do something more character/story focused, more like we had in Titan Masters.

-ZacWilliam, would honestly settle for 1 new character in six at this point,

Well, after Chromia, Greenlight, and a possible Lancer, I do hold hope given the solid builds found thus far in wave 1.


Hell, I kind of hope Elita-1 herself gets redone in the near future.

Part 2:

Ten million years in the past:

Two Destron Warlords Obsidian (Voyager class black jet) and Stryka (Voyager class blue tank) wage a brutal campaign across Cybertron using their new combining warriors which include the coneheads Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust and the Constructicons. Countering them is the legendary Pious Maximus, top cop Orion Pax and the worker Megahammer and Pious elite warriors the Power Masters: Slapdash, Joyride and Getaway.

Part 3:

Fifteen million years ago:

The ancient Megatronus seeks to ascend to godhood with his subordinate Galvatron, he stands against Alpha Trion and the Cybertronian Defence Force. The leader class Cyclonus and voyager class horrorcons: Apeface, Snapdragon and Double Dealer face the Exo armored units: Beta, Longtooth, Pincher and Skyhammer.
