At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 January 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I knew a woman at Target who was forced to use up her vacation time before she could qualify for maternity leave. Then they denied the leave because she technically hadn't been at work for two weeks beforehand.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Also, if you become sick during your vacation and you turn in a doctor's sick note, it means that you don't lose your vacation days, because according to the law, vacation is intended for recreation, not for recovery from sickness or injury.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:00 AM)

Another priority is "vacation request for the next year turned in before the deadline". Like, you missed the deadline, you have to make do with what's left.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 03:59 AM)

No, they prioritize vacation during school holidays for employees with school-age children. Also, only three of the six weeks during the summer holidays per employee so a larger number of employees can get their requests fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (31 December 2020 - 08:14 PM)

like, not company-wide, obviously, but by facility

@  TM2-Megatron : (31 December 2020 - 08:14 PM)

That's actually not bad at all for such a large company. Do they prioritize vacation by seniority?

@  Nevermore : (31 December 2020 - 08:11 PM)

In my nine years with Amazon, only one of my vacation requests (not counting requests for single days) has ever been denied (with an alternate option offered for a mere week later). It might have helped that I have always tended to plan my vacation against the grain.

@  Nevermore : (31 December 2020 - 08:06 PM)

We also have a legally guaranteed minimum of at least 24 vacation days per year, and the law mandates that the vacation should be granted in one stretch "unless urgent reasons on behalf of the company or the individual employee make it necessary to split up the vacation". The most common valid "urgent reason on behalf of the company" would be "multiple employees have requested their vacation days for the same period, so the employer has to organize everyone's vacation grants equally".

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 December 2020 - 02:50 PM)

Most places run with the bare minimum amount of staff they think they can get away with. So if one key person is out, they're in trouble. Hence, they don't like letting people take vacations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (31 December 2020 - 10:35 AM)

Here in the US... you're honestly likely to get fired for taking vacation.

@  Nevermore : (31 December 2020 - 05:31 AM)

Here in Germany, employers are usually very eager to remind you to take all your vacation days.

I guess I don't see why it's so much more unbelievable than all the other recent rumors that turn out to be true.

We know there's going to be a BW IDW series next year, and we know that the comics are more aligned with the toys now than they have been in years. We know that Hasbro is at least considering a BW movie (though even I believe that has like 0 chance of happening). Next year is the line's 25th anniversary. It seems like the generation figures for the 86 movie line will be in Studio Series instead of WFC, even though that was the expected theme of the last part of the trilogy and now makes what that theme is going to be unclear. Why is it so unbelievable that there will be a few BW characters in the next WFC line? Correctly predicting the name of the next WFC line should make this person as reliable as the average person that leaks the names of upcoming figures, right?

 

The difference between all of the rumors related to upcoming figures that have proven true so far and all of the "rumors" presented in the OP of this thread is that those "rumors" in the OP aren't actually rumors at all. They're speculations or theories. Speculations and theories are not the same things as rumors.

 

Granted, they can have some similarities to one another and be related concepts, but are ultimately completely different concepts in and of themselves.

Yes, I'm aware of the difference between speculation and rumor. Thanks for explaining it me slowly, but I can keep up.

If you read my post, you'd see that I was not talking about the OP. I was referring to the individual on TFW who claims to know that BW figures will be part of the next WFC line and predicted the name of the next line as proof that they aren't lying.

...it's not that the fact that the next line is called "Kingdom" that's the evidence that the next line is about beasts. It's the fact that the person who said the next line was going to be Kingdom also said that the next line was going to have beasts.

A line that does g1 guys as pretools for beast wars characters, or vice versa works for me.

I figure that's the only way we'd get to see beast wars characters these days and at least any g1 car guy or whatever done up as an animal would be different.

Some update/homage to BW would be great. And maybe there's something to it, but there's also the phrase "If your only tool is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail."

 

If someone is looking for hints/theories/"evidence" of BW, then what they find will be "evidence" of it to them.

In recent years we've had a lot of rumors turning out to be true and leaks that turned out to be real, which makes it easy to forget we've also seen a lot of both turn out to be incorrect.  It's not always even a matter of people lying and claiming to have insider info they don't have, because people with real information can misinterpret or overinterpret it.  (I remember back around Combiner Wars there were two different leaks that were too right about too many specific things to not be from genuine inside sources, but also one of them claimed CW Ultra Magnus didn't have any IDW influence and the other claimed CW Streetwise was a Breakdown retool.)



Yes I know it's broken. It's an HTTPS thing and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it yet.

The next theme could be KingdomS, which could lead to the colony angle some of us have been harking on for years.  I can't see Hasbro committing an entire line to something like Beast Wars.  Heck, we are still getting a Titanmaster figure almost 3 years after the line was all Titanmasters.  That said, this trilogy thus far has been pretty solid on the G1 fanwank and I can't imagine a full  year without us getting SOMETHING to tie into the original line, especially if they're playing at integrated the original animated movie into Studio Series.  And there still remains ample opportunity for reuse and retools using the existing G1 figures that they have produced.

 

At least Optimus Primal and Beast Megatron would help fulfill the "requisite character" angle so I think it would be more possible to get us more than the sub-handful of figures we've gotten in prior Generations attempts.

I'm gonna go ahead and predict that WFC3 is not in fact anything Beast Wars-related(aside from maybe 1-2 characters), and will actually continue the retelling of G1 that Siege started, continuing where Earthrise left off, with the Ark & Nemesis landing on Earth.

So been keeping tabs in the thread with the user dropping tidbits on part 3.

Take everything with a grain of salt of course.

Part 3 is Kingdom

Will be about the G1 cast meeting the Beast Wars cast through time travel.

The lineup will be a roughly 50/50 or 45/55 split between G1 and BW characters.

BW Scorponok is in the lineup. Couldn't confirm if he has cyberbee or not.

Not sure if BW Inferno is in the line or not as G1 Inferno from Earthrise Grapple is in it. BW Inferno may be a later wave. But voyager space is limited and split between the two casts.

86 Movie characters split between the G1 cast here and in studio series.

Primal and Cheetor were apparently going to be flocked but this may have been cut for budget reasons.

Primal, Cheetor and Megatron also in the line. Though those were a given.

The new weaponizers are called Fossilizers and are skeletal dinosaurs that form armor for other bots. (I'm totally down for these if true)

No Toy only BW characters that he has seen so far. Only show characters.

I'm really trying to reserve excitement for this for if it's proven real. But this would all make me feel so much better about not being able to afford the MP Beast wars figures.

Fingers crossed

He said

Unfortunately no micro/battle masters in part 3. Replaced by new Legends size class called Core class. Mostly G1 characters, Fossilizers and Rattrap.

I don't know if I beleive this. Would the "Fossilizers" be totally re-imagined Dinobots or new characters? Neither of those things are very in with this teams wheelhouse.

-ZacWilliam, would they go BWNeo? Doesn't feel like "Fossilizers" would have the built in re-use that both Weaponizers and Modulators have had planed in.

Flocked, like added hair?  I'm not trying to sound dumb, I actually don't know what that means.

 

I remember dinosaur fossils that became armor and wearpons...from a line called Bone Age.  It would be hilarious to see a sort-of-homage line.  Even if I didn't get any of the rest I'd grab at least one and give it to the Dinobots.

 

"New recruit needs to eat more!"
"New recruit is DEAD!"
"Told you.  Should have listened!"
"Wait...new recruit is made of rock!"
"Throw bum out!  Dinobots have enough brain trouble!  No take stoners!"

 

And finally Wheeljack wonders why all these fossil bones are in a pile outside the Dinobots room with a 'rejected' note on them.

If the Fossilizers are soley in the new legends sized "core class". I could see them being new characters much like Slash was in Potp. With the G1 minibots and Rattrap rounding out the class.

Had to look up Bone Age. It was a line by Kenner....who helped create Beast wars....that would be one crazy ass homage.
