I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

Front page story

 

With an expansive library of 6" action figure lines apparently Hasbro felt Transformers also needed to get in on the action.

 

So now G1 fans can have their beloved Sunbow animation models free from any reinvention or transformation engineering marring their appearance!

Thoughts:

1) They look good.

2) I spend too much on real transforming Transformers to spend much on non-TFing side lines. Even if they look good.

3) The exception to the above is for toys based on Action Masters (and Action Master designs) and TF associated Human /Alien/Monster characters. Those I would almost certainly buy.


-ZacWilliam, would also buy figures like this of any Pretender Shells but that feels pretty unlikely.

I personally find these boring, but I suppose if they offered figures from this line in Action Master color schemes that'd probably pique my interest.
 
Seeing some of the more noteworthy Pretender shells show up in this line would be pretty cool though.
 
Also Garnak. Gimme a Garnak, Hasbro!

You know, I just had a crazy thought that probably won't come true, but...

 

What if this line was restricted to being nothing but Optimus and Megatron/Galvatron figures, but utilized designs of the two from all across the different series over the decades?

 

Optimus Primal and Beast Megatron

Transmetals Optimus Primal and Megatron

RiD 2001 Optimus and Megatron

Armada Optimus and Megatron

Energon Optimus and Megatron

Cybertron Optimus and Megatron

Movie Optimus and Megatron

Animated Optimus and Megatron

ROTF Optimus and Megatron

DOTM Optimus and Megatron

Prime Optimus and Megatron

Prime Beast Hunters Optimus and Unicron Megatron

AOE Optimus and Galvatron

TLK Optimus and Megatron

Cyberverse Optimus and Megatron/Megatron X

 

Retailers would get their big legacy names, while we fans would get legacy franchise diversity.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I like these, but I don't know what else I would get in this line. Like, Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave are all maybes, but for the most part I can't see myself buying any of the other 84 and 85 characters in this line.

I guess there's probably a market for such things, but I have so many representations of these characters that actually transform that I don't find these tempting at all.

Honestly, after Earthrise Arcee, Actionmasters might be the way to go. Typically these guys just live on my shelf these days and I only pull out a handful to mess with next to my desk.

That said, I already have an amazing G1 prime that transforms, and I have an okay G1 Megatron. Don't see myself getting either of these.

I meant the look he had in the comic specifically. That overly lanky design probably wouldn't make for a sturdy transforming toy. Or even get made in the first place.

One side of my brain is saying that this would be a great venue to integrate side characters that may not necessarily work in the core line proper, or distinct visual interpretations.  Your Rungs, Nauticas, Tens, Lost Light Rodimus as well as stuff like Beast Machines or the movies.  In addition to the usual suspects, I find it more likely to see a comic character or one off show character in this venue than the typical Transformers line.

 

The other side says that this is just another means of retreading the same damn characters and designs we've been saddled with for more than a decade.  Even if they integrate the movie series, I don't think anyone is REALLY hankering for another TF1 Optimus Prime.  Though, I'd be game for a VW Bumblebee that actually reflected his final film design...

 

And the Walmart link doesn't give me faith that these will be a mass retail item, which doesn't give me faith of any longevity with this expression either.

I mean, I'm not going to not buy a Cheetor. I hope it's his Beast Machines body. 

 

So much for the supposed Siege Cheetor now that we know what these listings actually are.
