@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:09 AM)

My local Walmart FINALLY got a restock of Generations during the early September reset and got a big shipment of Earthrise wave 1 (the first I’d seen around here). IF, and that’s a big IF, they restock I’m expecting a bunch of wave 3. Or wave 2. But we’ll be skipping one of those waves.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 04:08 AM)

Brunt barely appeared here at all, wave 3 was pretty much skipped for a big load of wave 4, with Impactor and

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Brunt is shelfwarming around me. One walmart moved the whole lot of them off to a side shelf, but couldn't be added to liquidate them.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2020 - 09:01 PM)

Ironworks is a plague. No idea if it was overproduced or if nobody wants it but thing's clogging shelves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2020 - 04:23 PM)

My walmart the few times I go in will be lucky to have two or three transformers period.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2020 - 10:29 AM)

I mostly just see walls of Ironworks. And the occassional Siege Hound.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2020 - 08:44 AM)

We already got Cyberverse Cheetor, and everyone else in the line is so damn accurate to their original designs, why not let Cheetor have that classic design, which in my opinion just looks better, has more of that classic heroic robot aesthetic I feel designers kind of forgot how to utilize

Mind, they forgot because there's so little that's truly striking and unique these days (is anyone really going to remember Cyberverse 10 years from now?) so yes, I would welcome something new too: I just don't trust anyone in entertainment to know how to make it any more


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I can't imagine not remembering Cyberverse in 10 years. Season 3 was awesome. It made Quintessons both fun and scary for the first time ever. And it gave us a cartoon featuring and an episode staring Rack'Ruin. It gave us Clobber's super fun character arc. A disillusioned ex Autobot who woke up in the old west and became an outlaw. A lost "haunted" crystal city and an ancient wolf-knight. It had Space Croc Hunter and his hapless girl Cosmos sidekick. An ancient evil undersea Titan and the Transformers version of Namor who fights it.

Cyberverse Rocks!


-ZacWilliam, I would love more cool new stuff in TFs too, but Cyberverse is actually one of the few places we got a decent dose recently.

I think in ten years, rather depends upon what comes next and who in charge of TF as a brand at Hasbro, plus whatever the animation style looks like, personally, I kind of want to see Japan take a crack at Transformers again as a show for older fans at least but not the six ep format but something like 26 eps, personally, I just don't feel any attachment to Cyberverse, I couldn't get into it and the animation while improvement in someways over RID2015, it fails to really grip me, it looks to cheep for its own good, I thought RID2015 was a insuilt to Prime by the fact it wasn't even in the same animation style and being branded as a sequel to Prime, thus I passed on it and have no regrets, the only time I bought toys from that was as a gift to my nephew, you know, gotta get the next generation of fans into these sorts of things! So ten years from now, I suspect likely forgotten or not thought about as fans recall stuff that was better animated such as Prime.

Too true. Folks should just get up to Season 2 to really get into Cyberverse. It's such a genuine love letter to Transformers fiction.

(You forgot an absolute [email protected] Perceptor, a loveable Whirl, Soundwave being dangerous, like, people were afraid of him. Can't even describe Dead End.)

The only one of those Selects that doesn't seem plausible is Transmutate, and even then, it wouldn't surprise me if it was legit.

Transmute is likely to be a repaint/retool of another figure. Thou looking at that the so called leaks, what caught my eye was the fact there is two seperate listings for Galvatron, I wonder if one toy going to have the paint deco based upon his G1 cartoon/movie self and the other to have one based upon his G1 toy colours, one thing is for certain, he will be a leader class from the looks of things, thou that could just mean a voyager figure with a bunch of extra parts like Shockwave was.

I wonder if Transmutate might take a cue from her Build-A-Figure roots, and could possibly be a remold of one of the deluxe Fossiliziers. I could definitely see her in Paleotrex.

The Selects version says "Toy" so it would be 1986 figure colors.

If you are making some remolds on it, I guess you could probably get a ok Transmutate out of any of the modern Deluxe ladies: Seige Chromia, Earthrise Arcee or Kingdom Airrazor or Black Arachnia.

It's just, it creates a sense of inconsistency now between the two. One gets to keep his Japanese name, the other doesn't.

 

I still feel that the name "Hot Shot" would be the perfect Hasbro name for Artfire.

 

 

Would the team that came up with Ricochet have renamed Black Roritchi to, say, Blacktrack?

 

"Goldtrack" would make more sense since there actually isn't much black on him.
