They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

A comic, yes, but we need a figure!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (11 April 2021 - 04:30 PM)

It's a jargon-shattering figure.

@  Kalidor : (10 April 2021 - 08:50 PM)

The licensed Optimus Prime that transforms itself is the appropriate usage of the term "Third Party"

@  Donocropolis : (10 April 2021 - 08:24 AM)

That Optimus isn't built by Hasbro, only licensed. The company that makes it has been making similar robots for years, so no crowdfundng required.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 08:05 AM)

Apparently they're selling one for 74 and a half thousand dollars.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 April 2021 - 08:01 AM)

We could write boston dynamics and ask?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:59 AM)

Granted, I'm not sure how much robots with elaborate movement tend to go for.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:56 AM)

I think with actual robotics it was easier to justify selling it at a high cost, compared to an unusually large action figure.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 April 2021 - 05:06 AM)

It is a very impressive display of robotics though.

@  tigerhawk : (10 April 2021 - 04:52 AM)

What were they thinking with that self transforming Optimus? should have been another crowd funder for that price.

@  tigerhawk : (08 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

I wish they'd rerelease Earthrise Ramjet and Dirge.

It's also cool that that whole plot concept is based on a throwaway line or two from 21 or 24("I *hate* you.") in the last couple seasons.


?


Missed this response to my post. When 21 and 24 were asked by the Monarch on how they repaired the cocoon, it was always about stealing parts from Hatred's hovertank. You didn't think anything of it at the time other than being a funny line, and now the repurcussions of it is a running season 3 plot line.


They also stole jetpacks from Hatred as well.

She musta been smoking hardcore for a while. In the Invisable Hand of Fate we saw her as a student of Professer Phantomos and even way back then she had a super deep voice. What, she been going hard on the cigs since she was 5?

Man at this point her lungs have to be made purely of cancer. Maybe she could get them replaced with mechanical lungs that let her breath fire. That would be kinda cool.

I still don't think heavy smoking is the "true" reason for her manly voice. Just because a bunch of lame supervillains point it out to The Monarch doesn't mean they know the truth. The truth is still out there... icon-blitz.gif

I think it's the official explanation. I hope it is because it's like the ultimate "hah hug you guys" and I think that's hilarious. All the hype about the voice over 2 seasons and then they just make it something lame. And I think that would be awesome, on par with the south park episode about cartman's dad.

Dr. Girlfriend hasn't confirmed or denied that smoking's why her voice is like it is. Brock's convinced she's a post-op dude just as much as Hatred's convinced her voice is from smoking. They've not written themselves into a corner on it just yet. A flashback to her first cigarette while still having the voice would throw us all for a loop.

yknow it's funny, i think Dr. Mrs. The Monarch is pretty hot (for a cartoon), and if someone was like that in real life, voice and all, i'd still go for it. BUT - an old girlfriend had a particularly deep voice - not that deep and gravely, more like the voice-altered people who said they like Frosted Flakes. And at one point, she told me enthusiastically about something she was gonna do to me, you know...there. and when the words "I'm SO GONNA ____ ___ ____" came out, all super darth vadery, i just kinda lost interest.

Pretty good episode. HIGHLIGHT to view:
Dean is turning into quite the boy adventurer this season. And quite the ladies man, somehow. I loved when Dean showed up in the lookout nest and Brock just didn't appear to know what to say. And his lines on his way out. The both of yous got jungle fever!.....the both of yous...

Ginny was scary, and it was hilarious that Brock seemed to think so as well. Usually he's all over just about anything, but even he must have standards.

This season does seem to be about family and growth of the characters. Hank and Dean are finding their own personalities, Doc is taking a long, hard look at his life, The and Mrs. The Monarch are forming a family unit of some kind, Brock has a son, Doc has a half sister (so it would appear). Its great to see everyone moving forward and the Venture-verse expanding.

Kinda suprised that they never really went anywhere with the "obviously that's his half-sister" thing, but maybe it'll come up later.

The after the credits bit was one of the best yet.

Dammit! That totally didn't click for me until just now. That's what I get for watching it at 6 in the morning...

Was everyone from Jonas Sr.'s generation a dick? Jeez, no wonder everyone's so screwed up, and they're all just passing it along to their kids...

How do you figure? The scene were Jonas Sr. and ...Quymn's mom (name escapes me, if it was even mentioned), come in all kissy face and crush the jungle fort? I just read that as Jonas Sr. is a man-whore...

Well her Husband (who's name escapes me) is very gay. So either Quymn is from a previous marrage or someone's been banging her mom behind the scenes, such as Dr. Venture Sr.

Not to mention, the younger Dr. Quymn also has the same reddish hair as Rusty and his dad. Also, her life is an eerie parallel of Dr. Venture's, although she seems like less of a failure...
