It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

Ratchet would look 1000x better if that dark grey plastic were red.

Also, no better place for that MICRON LEGEND CONVOY than on Planet Micron.

I didn't think I needed another Ratchet after the Siege version, but I suppose I probably do. I look forward to paying stupid aftermarket prices for this set on eBay.

Micron: Hmmm... they'd need to do a lot of Micromasters to make up a Selects set.

 

The Siege Micromaster 10-pack sold at $39.99, so if these sets have a unified price point we might be getting that again.

 

We haven't seen alternate tooling for the Battle Squad, Hot Rod Patrol, Race Track Patrol, Astro Squad, and we know at least some of the Monster Truck tooling was used in the last 10-pack for Irontread and Ricon. So that's an easy 10 right there.

Hm.  I'd probably pounce on Ratchet alone, since ambulance, but Lifeline really feels like a "well, this was fun once" type character for me and this one seems like a downgrade from the TFSS version.

 


wait a second; it aint Tuesday....
For you, the Paradron Medics 2-Pack was revealed on Amazon on a Thursday evening.  But for me...

The color of Lifeline's face is weird, and not in a good way. 

 

I would guess that Botropolis is going to be some kind of "the whole planet is one giant city" type of setting, and have nothing to do with Go-bots.

Or maybe it'll have everything to do with Go-Bots and it'll be a Road Ranger redeco of Kingdom Huffer and a Treds deco of Warpath!

Heh, I think I'm kidding, but at this point I don't think that's impossible.

So...just checking because I don't want this shipped without a protective box, like what happened with the Coneheads. Was there any option to have this not shipped in "packaging that reveals it's contents" and I just missed it, or is that something we might choose once it's ready to ship?

They missed an opportunity with Ratchet. They should have remolded the roof/shield into an operating table that could double as a stretcher or litter.

Yes! I love they are doing STORY for the selects sets!

Story with toys is absolutely my Jam.

I noticed there's a complete version of the Earthrise Galaxy map inside the box (minus the map key and ship routes on the pack in version) with only certain planets labeled. I missed the story advertising text till I read it here. The planets labeled on the Map have to be the ones we're getting Odyssey sets for right?

That would be: Paradron
Biosfera
Bottropolis
Dominus
Micron

This set is the paradron set. So we can assume the other sets will each feature characters from that planet.

Biosphera HAS to give us repainted BW Kingdom toys, yes?

Botropolis is from Go-go-go Bots I cant imagine what will be there.

Dominus appears to be a EDIT: Planet Master. Forgot that alt name. Target or Headmasters then...

Micron: Hmmm... they'd need to do a lot of Micromasters to make up a Selects set.

ZacWilliam, EDIT: Yes better pic of the map on instagram. I never use instagram but for a better map I'll figure it out.

 

If Biosfera's the new name for Animatron, I'd like a Leobreaker retool from Kingdom Cheetor. He's even got a similar weapon.

I accidentally checked the Conehead set as a gift and it arrived in an Amazon box.

Hot damn!  I'll definitely take a Micromaster parting gift!

 

Though knowing my luck it'll just be a set of new decos for the Ironworks and Airwave molds. :D

 

Botropolis  being a Gobots thing isn't that far fetched, given we've already gotten Bugbite.

When I was selling stuff to fund Unicron last year, about the only thing I had second thoughts about unloading was Lifeline. I kinda liked her, but not enough to pass up what people were willing to pay for her. Getting a replacement at retail price works out wonderfully for me.

I was tempted, I really was.  Had the set in my cart and everything....but I HAVE to draw the line somewhere.  Looks solid, but I'm generally fine with Siege Ratchet, and that one had more interesting accessories.  The Amazon set has a much better head sculpt though...but I find it hard to believe that, given Hasbro's predilection to reuse assets and G1, maybe we'll see a redeco that is more interesting?  And I have zero interest in Lifeline or the mold at all, so no big loss to me there.

 

I'm VERY interested to see what becomes of this Galactic Odyssey thing.  Love that Hasbro's doing some more story stuff, sad that it is largely relegated to store descriptions.

The theme here appears to be away missions to these planets.  I'm guessing maybe the two packs are one visitor and one native.

 

In this case, Ratchet being the visitor and Lifeline is the native.

 

Do we know anything about these worlds? 

 

Botopolis was from the Playschool Go-bots

Micron is uhh Micromasters I guess.

Biosphera ??? Beasts? Plants? Botanica?

Dominus?  No idea. Tarn??

Looks nice but I am fed up of all these exclusives because:

1. They cost more

2. Harder to get a hold of, good example Siege Skywarp, he going for silly prices

3. They appear to be exclusive to the US only

 

So, yeah, I am getting fed up of all these exclusives all of a sudden! My local Supermarket barely stocks anything TF related, the nearby toy shop is SO slow about getting different TFs in, like they been about for months when they finally show up and mostly linger on the shelves for ages, last I checked they still had a Siege Starscream thou lockdown didn't help matters, its like Hasbro is forgetting there is a much larger fan base beyond the US shores.
