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)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

@  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)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 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

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  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

More female characters would be cool, especially new ones! (but idk how likely a lot of new characters female or otherwise is likely to be) But like whenever we get Bumblebee we need Glyph too! And of course more body types for the female characters, and not have all of them from the same exact mold!
And female characters in bold, primary colors that only the dudes usually get! And male TFs in pastels and pinks and stuff like that they don't normally get to rock

I also wish more toys could weaponize themselves! Like if some deluxe that didn't completely split apart, like Hound, could rip his arm off and it turns into a gun that plugs into Optimus. Stuff like that!

Also Legends class combiners might be cool. Stuff like, Monstructor and Sixturbo that's more obscure but also traditionally smaller then the scramblecity stuff. Plus they're mostly six bot team, so you don't have to worry about the torso being too small and fiddley

Also Seacons, cuz I love the Seacons and they need a CW style update sooooo bad! (and hey! That would satisfy my request of a bunch of male characters in pink and pastels too! Lol)
Looking for Combiner Hunters Chromia and Arcee! If you can help plz pm me

I hope the 'battle-damage' paint apps get severely toned down or outright removed because, with a few exceptions, I do not like it on any of the Stege figures. Looks like someone just played with the toy out in the dirt or scraped a bunch of paint off it to me.

I am reminded of this interview with Mark Weber from a year ago.

I just want many, many more Weaponizers.

 

Hot damn do I love that gimmick.

 

Hmm. We have Thrilling 30 Scamper, Titans Return Full-Tilt, Siege Cog, and soon Siege Six-Gun and Siege Brunt.

 

One hopes it is only a matter of time until the War for Cybertron Trilogy gives fans Slammer and Fasttrack.

 

Maybe even somehow Masterforce Cog and Zone Metroshot, Metrodash, and Metrotank.

War for Cybertron: Quest for the Colonies

 

With Cybertron fallen, the only hope is for the Autobots to seek new allies by finding Cybertron's lost colonies. From the legendary halls of Caminus, to the raceways of Velocitron, to the jungles of Eukaris, to the forges of Gigantion, bold new worlds await Optimus Prime and his allies. But the Decepticons are in hot pursuit, and they seek to bring their vision of conquest to these worlds unspoiled by war...

 

Play Pattern:

- Planet Masters, small robots that combine into Planet Cores, break apart into supplementary parts based on the planet's theme; for instance, Planet Master "Megadrive" imbues larger Cybertronians with Velocitronian boosters, glider wings, and various other speed-enhancing parts.

- Mini-Cons replace Micromasters, coming in two packs that form a combined enhancement, such as a Gigantion pair that collectively become a battle hammer and giant fist with which to wield it.

- There's no equivalent of Weaponizers in deluxe classes and up, but Voyagers, Leaders, and Deluxes are all backwards compatible with WfC: Siege weapons and battle masters, while also interacting with Planet Masters and Mini-Cons. Figures are a mix of Cybertronians and colony inhabitants, like Windblade, Override, Leobreaker, etc.

I was thinking the title for that story would not work for such a story line, I think Transformers Exous: Galaxy Adventures would work better as a title. Far as the story its self, the thing I would change is Optimus leading, he could do the heroic death thing (AGAIN) by delaying the cons to ensure the Ark blasts off into space and the Autobots onboard must decide who will lead them from that point onwards, so maybe a arguement between Prowl & Jazz (I always view those two as Optimus's second in command) until everyone else selects Bumblebee as their leader and he asks for surgestions as to their destination and someone says they got the last known location of Caminus, thus their adventures begin!
