Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:33 AM)

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

I'm going through another around of Final Fantasy Tactics, in this case War of the Lions on PSP. And in thinking about it, I've never gotten the Ultima spell. Something about my luck I guess, but I've never been able to get anyone to nuke Ramza so he learns the spell. I think I'll make that one of my primary goals this time through.

But it's kind of funny how they'll always cast it while he's out of range, never targets him, and the battles where you learn the spell tend to be tricky anyway, so maneuvering things so he gets hit can even be a pain in the ass. That, and they use the spell like it's made of solid gold, I.E. almost never, bastards...

Still, I love this game. So easy to burn hours on the sheer character customization options.

I've never played Tactics, but I've lost so many hours on Tactics Advance and Advance II that I actually blew out the game timer on Advance.

It got me through many jivey work days at the Payless DC on my SP.

I played the hell out of FFT:Advance. My first game save hit 140 hours and my second time through was at about 70 or so hours. So, it's odd that despite my love of FFT:Advance, I've never been able to get into the original FFT (or the PSP remake). Every time I try to start playing them I lose interest by the third or fourth cutscene. :/

i *LOVE* FF tactics. one of my favorite games ever. i still have my psx copy. ( its pretty much the only reason i still have a ps2. )

ive never managed to learn the spell either. but i have spent countless hours building my characters up, doing random battles, turning my fighters into tiny gods.

ah.. so much fun.

on the flip side i never really liked the tactics advanced games :/

No way. With all the translation issues and story mistakes the english version includes, it's far from the best. Were it a decent translation, I'd sort of agree, but it isn't.

FF9 all the way. Were the FFT trans. better, it'd be a tie between those two.

I hated FF Tactics on PS. So boring. I've never been into that style of RPG.

Now, I'm enjoying FFXII a lot right now...

Yeah I have XII and have tried hard to like it, but dear god, it's just completely hugging dreary.

I still haven't picked it back up.

IX though, is still the greatest FF of all time. OF ALL TIME.

Tactics was amazing. Once I got Cloud and leveled him up to my normal party levels, everything was gravy. I got Ultima cast on me and learned the spell completely by accident, so can't help there.

Different strokes.

I still hate 8 with an unbridled passion. I find none of the characters interesting. Except for Ward, cause he really didn't talk much.

My guess is by actually having taste, and not liking emo characters that have little to no personality?

That might just be it.

Squall wasn't emo. He was a normal, pragmatic and average guy who didn't like dealing with people. Not to mention character growth. He went from brooding loner to leader. He even gave an inspiring speech. He may internally complain and pick apart people's arguments, but he doesn't hesitate to do the right thing.

Selphie wasn't emo. She was a hyper little dynamo who said ditzy things and occasionally creepy things. She was outwardly outgoing but internally wracked by the pain of losing her loved ones from her home. But she was strong-willed enough to bury it for the good of her teammates. She can also play the electric guitar.

Rinoa wasn't emo. She's fiesty, aggressive, and full of compassion. Her existence pisses Squall off majorly. But opposites attract and they fall in love. She's also badarse enough to drag the brooding Squall out on the dancefloor.

Zell wasn't emo. He's a hilarious bruiser. He loves hot dogs and beating people up. He's got a stupid grin and he's sensitive about his height. His love interest is an unnamed girl in the library in a subtle relationship.

They all have personality, you just couldn't be arsed to look for it?

eh, i didnt like 8 either.

my wife is one of the few people i know that did... i dont know, 7 and 9 had fun, memorable characters. my wife accuses me of only liking them because they were more 'cartoony' then realistic, but.. i dont know, i didnt *like* any of the characters in 8. i played the game at least half way through, twice.. and just never connected with any of them.

i guess i expect a little more 'fantasy' in my final fantasy games. i dont want characters that are just more or less normal people, its the same reason i dont like any of the characters from the newer games.

the next one thats coming out looks terrible to me for this reason, the characters look so bland... but, my wife is excited about it, ill give it a shot..
