@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

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.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

@  lastmaximal : (08 October 2019 - 12:57 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

Shut up rattrap.

@  Trpodeca : (05 October 2019 - 07:19 AM)

They seem to be treating all the games with the same reverence.Even ReCoded, which was just an excuse to redo the first game again.

@  Trpodeca : (05 October 2019 - 07:18 AM)

For the first time in about eight years,I've played a Kingdom Hearts game.

I've been trying to stay on top of card reveals for the front page, but this site has a big repository of all the currently revealed ones, including some characters who aren't actually in the Siege toyline. Wave 4 is going to be a Siege tie-in too, so any toy characters not in Wave 3 might show up there instead.

This has nothing to do with the topic, but I really like that art of Nightstick's black-beam gun mode. That's exactly how I imagine his weapon effect looking.

 

And I, uh, literally just this second got the connection between his name and gun mode.

So at the moment, we know the names of all the Divisions and Ranks, and most of the Units. Just need Omega Supreme's and Swindler/Roadhandler's. Omega will almost certainly be added to the official site's little listing whenever he drops. Dunno about other one though, maybe wait for a more popular Deluxe-or-bigger Autobot in the same unit? (or ask at whatever event and pray they know something this obscure)

Chances are we'll be able to get Swindler and Roadhandler's unit from the TCG! They're doing cards for Micromasters who aren't in Siege, so I have to assume that all the ones who are will definitely get cards.

They might not be until Wave 4 though, because they've already revealed 46 of the 48 total characters for Wave 3. Though I suppose there's no reason they couldn't be those last two?

EDIT: Except that Flak has been revealed and Top Shot hasn't, and I'd like to think they wouldn't break up a team between waves. So yeah, Swindler/Roadhandler are probably Wave 4.

So I guess Red Wing doesn't have a badge?

Combat Megs has one, and Red Wing is part of Siege unlike Swoop and Ricochet...

I was waiting to see if he'd prove that the box interior is a checklist of sorts, though now I'm not so sure.

I mean, there's two "Seeker" badges, Megatron's got his, and Smokescreen would logically be one of those Infantry ones, so I dunno.

His badge is a black hexagon to denote his super important position as background filler.

Added the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce members, and Omega Supreme's unit is "Transport". Just need confirmation on maybe-Autobot-Espionage.

Yeah, I found that the most noteworthy thing in the article. It was probably just them covering their bases and future-proofing the system, but there's a part of me that's hoping there was a commander class Broadside/Tidal Wave mold on the design team's mind.

Ooooh, official info!

 

I must admit I've kinda lost track of these things when they announced a billion exclusives, though it looks like that box design isn't any cool secret checklist or anything. Not sure what "Specialist" is all about -- it's mentioned but not explained in the article. The main site refers to Ratchet as one, but goodness knows how that fits into everything.

Specialist is a non-commissioned officer rank.  A lot of GIJoe characters had the Specialist rank.
