@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

A few years ago, an attempt to release the 1985 Mauler as a convention exclusive were thwarted when one of the molds for the turret broke. Has the mold in question since been fixed? If not, are the turret molds for the 1989 Equalizer (Mauler chassis; new turret) intact enough for use instead?

During the 1980s, the G. I. Joe line saw the release of several accessory packs that consisted of spare weapons for that year's crop of figures, albeit in alternate colors (such as a "cream" instead of "black"). Would it be feasible to begin releasing accessory packs once again?

Given the fact that three figures have been released in stores in Tiger Force colors (Duke, Flint, Wild Bill + Rattler) and three have been released to stores in Python Patrol colors (Officer, Crimson Guard, Viper + Conquest), what is the prospect of other figures and vehicles being released in their subteam colors (such as Bazooka, Lamprey, the VAMP, and the ASP)?

The SDCC "Starscream" exclusive (a Skystriker in an exclusive color scheme) has been the latest in a series of cross-overs between the G. I. Joe and Transformers lines. Given this, can we expect to see future product releases that cross over in some fashion?

They've answered the accessory pack question before, in short "no", in long, that's one of the reasons we get so many accessories with individual figures now.

Here's my question: *Edited for more detail

Can you offer any insight into the so-called "Ross" phenomenon in which so many items - be they previously considered canceled such as the RoC Polar Sharc, Lava Pod and Tiger Rat or in some cases brand new such as the PoC Black HISS and VAMP - appear to by-pass the large, "first tier" retailers completely and should this represent any concern for collectors as to retailer support of the line as a whole especially in light of what appears to be Walmart's nation-wide dropping of the Joe line from current planograms?

Well, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the most popular show on the HUB at this time and it was the winner of the 2010 best new show award. So I think any show that crosses over with it will have an instant ratings boost for at least 1 episode.

Actually, someone could make a case for a "Dan Vs." crossover in which Dan squares off against Cobra Enterprises.

Hasbro Studios isn't listed amongst the production team for Dan Vs., so it may just be a show that the Hub airs, not a show that they make.

Which may mean that they have little control over what actually goes into any given episode.

With the toyline seeing a packaging change in the fall 2011 assortments, will the change be a "hard reset" (similar to the ending of Rise of Cobra and the start of Pursuit of Cobra, where the prior SKUs were replaced with new ones) or a "soft reset" (the transition from 25th figures to "Modern Era" figures, meaning the same SKU for both packaging styles)?

I'm definitely call bull jive on this unless you have some solid numbers for ratings (and not speculation about rampant fandom niche). I would tend to think given the popularity of the franchise, that Transformers Prime is probably their #1 cartoon on currently. But I'd like to be proven wrong.

Here's a question:

Given the upcoming Skystriker release, are their any other classic vehicles you would like to restore or revisit in the modern era (please give examples)?

Actually Nick and More did a poll on which was the best new show from 2010. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was leading the entire time during round 1. And in round 2, it had twice the number of votes as the other 9 finalists combined.

Back in the late 1980s, a series of "motorized action packs" was released.

These were backpacks that had a wind-up motor in them, enabling the backpack to fulfill some sort of secondary function, such as "anti-aircraft station" or "helicopter pack."


Would it be feasible to release more of these for the modern-day?

About what ratio of figures are all or mostly new molds (the new Destro, for example) as opposed to strictly mixed-and-matched from existing figures (Rock Viper) these days?

What was the reasoning behind releasing an only slightly different Croc Master figure? The first wasn't particularly hard to come across nor seemed to have loads of fan demand past its release.
Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

I like this one, although I'd rephrase it to be a little less confrontational:

QUOTE
Has a decision been made yet in regards to whether Zarana will be made available at mass retail, or will she be a convention exclusive? Since she tops a lot of the "most wanted" lists and "when will we see --" questions, it seems like a lot of new tooling for a very limited release that most of the people who want will not be able to get.


I'd also like to suggest this one:

QUOTE
Last year fans were assured that a mass retail Sgt. Slaughter was being "looked into." Did anything come of that? Is there a chance that a more widely-available version of this popular character will be released?
