Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

It is a funny pic, I agree there.

Sorry if I come off as too "goodie-goodie", but I always found the TF site in-fighting really wearying and a chore to deal with. Yeah, it was a pain move that may or may not have been by people who know better, and I think the Wiki needs to come up with a real hotlink-prevention solution anyway. But it takes all of two seconds to send a PM first. *shrug*

And as for the hotlinking, Seibertron isn't new to the game. They know damn well that it is a common courtesy to host the images on their own, rather than soak up the bandwidth of the wiki.

I'd still rather PM and give them a chance to take it down first, then only "retaliate" if they don't. Especially since the whole reason it was newsed in the first place was because I made an announcement post hoping they would to promote the matter. Especially since the moderator in question, you know, donated some of his own money to the charity, too.

But whatever, I guess. Sorry for preferring to take the polite route first before escalating. Guess that'll learn me. icon-primal.gif


Get over yourself.

This turned into SO much more than some catalog. I just went back and looked at ALL of the archived news from today through the 23rd of February, and couldn't find a damn thing about the charity.

And don't kid yourself. They posted the pics because they wanted hits on their site. Not because they gave a crap about what we did for HCC. Look back at the story. They didn't even MENTION the charity. They posted the story for hits.

I don't feel the tiniesy bit bad about this.

I'll point out that at least a few people contributed to the charity from Seibertron. Look, I have my own opinion of the various TF sites, and as far as this whole effort goes, everyone comes out even because this was a really cool thing that people contributed to from everywhere, so I'm not worried about any of the infighting we might ordinarily get bogged down in.

But, come on. Hotlinking images is just plain old bad internet etiquette and everyone knows that. I think Walky's response was appropriate - he didn't make it porn or anything actually bad, just a bit of a joke. Seibertron should've known better to start with, so everyone had a little laugh about it. I also agree with Jeysie that a PM asking them to change it was appropriate and I'm glad she did it as well.

I really think we're best off if everyone just calls it all even at this point and just lets it drop because it really isn't a big deal either way. Okay? Let's just focus on the awesome stuff, not pick the tiniest little nit that came up. If anyone wants to discuss further, please PM me, but let's keep it out of the thread from now on. Thanks.

Hey all,

I post primarily on Seibertron. I donated to the cause and I pused a few people to do the same.

"This" whole little thing here. It wasn't cool. It showed a real lack of civility.

I realize certain people here have had problems with certain people at Seibertron over the years. There's thousands of people a day on that site, the majority of which never had anything to do with any of that squabbling from the days before.

Since we're all fans of the same toy robots, maybe next time we could discuss problems at the big kids table.

I'm disappointed with this whole thing here and there was no reason that a great community effort and fundraiser had to have THIS attached to it.

I'll just give you all my "admin perspective." Which has already been posted. Kissplayers or something Voldemortinios would have loved would have been retaliation, and not cool. "hug yeah Seacons" is a rib.

Trust me, if that happened here one of our news folks would get a nice warm "WTF WERE YOU THINKING?" PM from me. I'd imagine the poor sap who wasn't doing their job right there will get something similar.

And most importantly, I think next time they post news they won't be so lazy.

BTW, one of you Tropers needs to edit the Crowning Moment page again to blow some minds wide open.


Hot Rod's correct color in both the cartoon and comic is pink, and so were early samples of the toy. In fact, a while back an ex-Hasbro employee put a bunch of pre-production G1 toys for auction, which included some test shots molded using the proper pink deco.

I'm aware of his cartoon colours.

It's just that this particular photo set isn't the best confirmation of the proposed toy scheme, as the lighting in general is skewed in that direction. That particular sample could be the regular red.

But if we've seen physical samples before, then that's somewhat different.
