Hey man, don't dongshame.

@  Robowang : (24 April 2017 - 11:53 AM)

Menasor's problem is that his crotch is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high. I couldn't care less about those other issues. If your dong is a chestburster, something ain't right.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:40 AM)

Seems like all the combiners have an issue like that, the legs can never be completely straight in combined mode, the finished big bot is always looming eerily or hip-thrusting.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 AM)

I doubt having an integrated trailer would have swayed me into buying CW Motormaster. But what definitely put me off were Internet reports of awful hip ratcheting.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:36 AM)

I might also mention that ~not~ being a big truck has worked for the Internet pretty well.

@  unluckiness : (24 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

I moaned about Motormaster because his combiner mode was awful

@  Rycochet : (24 April 2017 - 11:31 AM)

People moaned about the choices made during Combiner wars.that meant characters like Motormaster/Menasor weren't G1G1G1.

@  BlackMax : (24 April 2017 - 11:23 AM)

He could always be a very small red truck.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 April 2017 - 10:59 AM)

But how will you know it's Optimus Prime if he's not a big red truck?

@  Broadside : (24 April 2017 - 10:20 AM)

Personally, I'm not a fan of the extreme-accuracy trend. The character choices are kind of sure-fine-whatever, but outside of stuff like Alpha Trion that's a huge divergence from the source material, there doesn't feel like there's much imagination in the designs any more.

@  Pennpenn : (24 April 2017 - 05:03 AM)

@  Autobot Bubbs : (24 April 2017 - 03:10 AM)

GURD.... youtube just auto-played a new trailer for the Alien flick.... featuring John Denver's 'country roads' as BG music....

@  Noideaforaname : (24 April 2017 - 12:37 AM)

The Generations lineup should be decided by hitting Random Page on the wiki. "Next one is... Crankstart." 'Alright, I love the Scavengers!' "No, no, CrankSTART. The repaint of a repaint of a repaint of a Scout version of a Deluxe based on a background vehicle from the Live Action film." 'Oh'

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 11:31 PM)

After we get a couple of Pretenders. And a Titans Return Star Saber (not a difficult retool from Galvatron).

@  BlackMax : (23 April 2017 - 10:21 PM)

I really do like all the attention to the 80s toys, being from that era myself. However, I would be really happy if (let's say post Trypticon) the Generations line turns to the 2001 RiD line, Beast Wars stuff, and moves forwarda bit.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:19 PM)

I'm curious because I'm not an 80s kid nor have I ever held an actual 80s toy in my hands, but I'm pretty sure a mathematically significant portion of 80s kids here do have a like for cartoon accuracy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:15 PM)

How much of this community favors versus not favors the current Hasbro design team's general trend of accuracy to classic 1980s toys and lack of attention to any other era of Transformers?

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:25 PM)

Re The Rise of Cobra: I like bad movies and action sequences involving elite ninjas, so I watched / fast-forwarded through it on Netflix a couple of years ago.

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:23 PM)

Can anyone tell me why the Shoutbox has a notification (a "1") when I login sometimes? I scroll through and don't see anything addressed to me. What does it mean?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 03:40 AM)

Sometimes the Shoutbox takes a little longer to catch up to a new avatar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 03:00 AM)

In the Shoutbox I'm seeing the pink thing instead of that guy with the weird eyes.

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 02:59 AM)

looks the same to me. maybe it looks different cause its smaller?

Pay special attention to the silhouette of Wreck-Gar on the front left. That's not his face! It has shades instead of separate eyes, so it's probably one of the other two better-rendered Junkion nobodies. (I don't have the Complete Ark, so I don't get to know which one is named which.)

So, yeah. Here's hoping Hasbro can crank out all of their extra tooled heads before Movie 3 product starts coming out, or this generic Junkion, potentially part of a super-expensive six-pack, will be the only game in town.

(I am not sure if it's actually a six-pack. Japanese-literate wife is busy.)

EDIT: Aha. Mr. Sorenson uploaded the Junkion page as one of the previews to the Complete Ark, so the guy I'm thinking of is Junkyard.

I'll nab the second Junkion if I like its colours better then the hasbro version ... but then again I'm hope'n for him and his mustached friend to be in a two pack... so I can have one ride the other out of the box.

Are they making a new head for Junkyard? Could this mean Hasbro will use it too?

Just like all the other toys, Junkyard's head would have been included with the toolings for Wreck-Gar. Hasbro will use it as long as they don't run out of time before next movie's toys, as Walky pointed out already.

Frankly, I would want both the Japanese and American versions of "Junkyard," if only because you can never have too many Junkions.

There's also the chance that Hasbro's Junkyard won't be in (at least typical) Junkion colors to avoid being too similar to Wreck-Gar, whereas I doubt an eHobby instance would be so constrained.

Junkyard could just have a different distribution of colors, and some more prominent than they are on Wreck-Gar. Maybe he could be in a different sub-line, and packaged in a different mode.

I'm still holding out some vague hope that the Movie (And I LIKE the movie toys) won't kill off anything not-movie-related this time; they're doing a pretty good job having a mix, with virtually all of the ancillary merchandise (RPMS, etc.) still maintaining the Movie theme and new movie-looking deluxes and Voyagers being out there.

Again, I don't say this out of disdain for the Movie look--I just like some darn variety on shelves.

I'm curious about this. The Junkion appears to be the only one with any remolding. E-Hobby likes to do new characters or wild repaints, and the rest of the characters limit themselves TO themselves in many ways (the arrangement also seems to suggest they'll stay mostly the same). Still though, we've seen some interesting new characters from some of these already, and certainly there's some neat color changes that could be done.

Personally, I'm hoping for a Killing Jar Cyclonus and an Orion Pax, in addition to the Junkion. icon-hotrod.gif

I could see these all being more toy colored, especially Galvatron. It would be neat to finally get the grey scheme on that mold.

...still hope Hot Rod is finally released in magenta though.

Siebertron says these are 3-packs and "The paint applications of all these figures are based on Transformers Generations 1 animation."

Presumably that information comes from their source and not the image itself?

Two three-packs would be fine by me. I don't need another set of those Decepticons, and it cuts the price in half. Plus, hey, maybe I'll get a magenta Hot Rod out of it.
