Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

"Oh, don't worry. Fun will be had soon enough."

Patch began to seek out magic users but in her new form she found things far more difficult. However, without the ability to rest, she was able to search without the need for rest. A day passed almost fruitlessly until she sensed...something. It took her near the western edge of town where she saw a man and a woman arguing. Both were dressed in a way that truly indicated wealth as he had an impressive silk suit and top hat while she had a hoop dress bedecked in a sizable amount of jewelry. They continued arguing until she raised her hand as if to strike to strike him down, her jewelry beginning brightly glow. As he cowered before her, she slowly lowered her hand, the jewels lost their luster...and police lights lit up.

As the car pulled to a stop, two officers stepped out, both female. One had glasses and long auburn hair while the other was a brunette who wore her's in marcel waves. The one with glasses said, "We got calls about a domestic disturbance. What's going on here?" The other looked at something in her hand quietly as a nearby pickup truck stopped. After looking at whatever it was she was holding. the brunette called into her radio, "False alarm. Must've been a prank call." "How do you figure it's a prank call? We just got h..." Wordlessly the brunette dropped what she was holding. When it hit the ground, all the lights in a one block range shut off and it started to give off a high pitched pulse...

"Well, well," Patch said in a low voice as she noticed the bickering couple from a vantage point across the street. Her eyes focused on the glowing jewelry. "What do we have here..."

 

She continued to observe as the police car pulled up. The situation seemed to be escalating quickly when...

Patch shrugged off the noise as the brunette started walking toward the couple. The one in glasses looked confused and shouted, "This isn't following procedure! What are you...UNGH!" The brunette promptly shot her in the knees and said. "First aid kit's under the seat. Might want to put it to use." She turned back to the couple and said, "Come with me, ma'am. We can do this the easy way, the hard way...or the harder way. I'm not opposed to any of them."

It wasn't hard to figure out what was unfolding before her. The ruthless tactics, the coldhearted demeanor... this was unmistakably a mage hunter at work. Her lips curled into a snarl.

 

When the woman turned around to face the couple, Patch began walking into the street. Underneath the hood of her cloak, she cast a glance at the pickup truck that had pulled up.

Patch saw motion inside the truck but couldn't see any detail. As she silenty snuck across the street, the man said, "Let's talk about this. We could provide you with plenty of money." "I don't think she wants our money, dear," the woman said. The brunette smiled, "How astute. I see who wears the pants in the relationship." "I'm wearing a dress. Now, I'm giving you ten seconds to get off our lawn before you regret it." The brunette didn't wait for a countdown as she quickly slung some sort of capsule at them that splashed and erupted in flames.

Patch didn't like not knowing what was going on in truck. She had a feeling the occupants were not merely some innocent bystanders. But there was no more time for a cautious approach. The situation was quickly turning into chaos and the biggest threat needed to be neutralized immediately.

 

She launched herself at the hunter, intending to tackle her to the ground and pin her arms.

Out of the corner of her eye, Patch saw the couple drop and try to roll the fire out of their clothes while she tackled the brunette hard. It seemed she was clearly stronger but then she heard a sound. Distinctly familiar but not as loud, it sounded like the unholy love child of a musical triangle and nails scraping on a chalkboard--a raygun! A scorching feeling singed her back as a male voice said, "Two for the price of one? You seem to have picked the wrong time to go bump in the night my friend."

So the pickup truck driver was another hunter. Nice to know that her hunch was on the mark.

 

Much as she hated the thought of giving the subdued hunter the chance to get back up, she needed to deal with the new threat as well. She turned around with a furious light in her eyes, lunging at the male hunter with a feral growl.

As Patch turned to attack the male hunter, there were several things she noticed. His raygun was elongated like a rifle despite him carrying it one handed. He had a brunette pompadour and as she got to look at him, she could tell the two hunters were related, possibly even twins. Though he wore a trenchcoat, it was partially open and revealed a black & white diagonal striped shirt with iridescent polka dots that shimmered between pink and green. Finally, in his other hand there was something like a rocket launcher but he carried it underslung. It wasn't immediately apparent what the ammo was until he fired...a net--the most maniacal of mechanisms! As he fired, he moved to maintain distance. Moreover, the other rolled away when she shifted her attention.

There was a struggle behind Patch but she couldn't tell what the details were as she focused on the man in front of her. As she felt another raygun blast, the man spoke in a smug yet suave voice and said, "Now now now, there's no need to make this harder on yourself. If you calmed down I could leave you conscious."

She stopped struggling for a moment when the second raygun bolt hit her. But only for a moment.

 

"As if," she snarled in response to his comment, then tore through the remnants of the net to strike.

"Ah, so you do talk. But if you won't listen to reason, you just might need to be made to listen." With that, he fired off another raygun blast. Patch thought she heard a voice whisper in the darkness but she was starting to black out...

As Patch slowly came to, she could immediately see she was in a different spot than when she went down. She was looking through glass as people in bright colored outfits were moving frantically to and fro as they dismantled equipment. She quickly began to pick up details as she looked around. She was in some sort of cylinder. There were several other cyliders that presumably held several adult spellcasters that were unconscious but didn't see the socialite from last night. She caught glimse of twins, now with full bodysuits matching the shirt she previously glimpsed peeking through the brother's coat, but they were in and out just as quick as she saw them. A woman in a dark blue robe and a white visor seemed to be directing things.

But more than anything, she felt it. In the center of the room was a metal, human sized capsule subtly but surely gave off incredible arcane power. The voice quietly whispered, "I believe you found something of interest. It might be worth it to seek that out."

"Oh, well then, I suppose being dropped by that cretin with the bad hairdo was the right course of action after all," she muttered in a sarcastic tone.

 

Without moving, she inspected the scene. She watched the people who walked in and out, trying to get a sense of how many were moving about, and paid special attention to the one who seemed to be directing the others.

Patch noticed that the number of people was lowering as time progressed with some of the more noticeable people not returning. The twins only showed up once. She also noticed that the one directing thing was being holographically projected. After a few more instructions, the hologram disappeared. Soon, it dwindled to five people working.
