Yup, let's keep the politics in P&R folks, please and thank you.

@  unluckiness : (24 January 2017 - 05:38 AM)

Having a shitty person as president isn't an excuse to turn everything into a low-rent Youtube comments section.

@  Pennpenn : (24 January 2017 - 04:55 AM)

I'm tellin' ya, you'd better get used to it. People ain't gonna miss an opportunity to drag Trump like the heavy load he is just because he's president now.

@  unluckiness : (24 January 2017 - 04:47 AM)

Oh joy, even this thing's devolved into politics. What's the matter, the status update bar not enough for ya?

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 09:41 PM)

We don't need a magic wand to make the national debt grow, thanks very much.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2017 - 09:07 PM)

I'd rather have Rita or Zedd. ;)

@  Paladin : (23 January 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Yamcha's power level is higher than Donald's inauguration turnout.

Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

@  Echowarrior : (23 January 2017 - 02:29 PM)

*whipcrack*

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 January 2017 - 02:23 PM)

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 10:01 AM)

No, all the evils people voted for in 2016 were known.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 09:35 AM)

Didn't people have enough of voting for unknown evils in 2016? Come on, it's so last year.

@  Robowang : (23 January 2017 - 08:49 AM)

woooo Unknown Evil

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 January 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

@  Rycochet : (23 January 2017 - 07:11 AM)

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 January 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

@  Bass X0 : (21 January 2017 - 02:40 PM)

Samurai Seeker Jets!

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:42 PM)

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 January 2017 - 11:03 PM)

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

@  Waspinator : (20 January 2017 - 09:12 PM)

"Oh no, not again."

@  The Doctor Who : (20 January 2017 - 08:54 PM)

What do you want on your Tombstone?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 January 2017 - 08:52 PM)

I summon Mothrally's to champion the cause of a new/old line of discussion!

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 07:24 PM)

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

Me too!

TF Dark of the Moon Toy Launch in the Philippines

Transformers toy launches are a major event here in the Philippines. Our local Transformers organization, CybertronPhilippines, helps the local toy distributer with promotions on eight different malls every weekend for three months.

We had our first Dark of the Moon toy launch last weekend May 14 and 15, 2011. We got the usual stage games for kids, twenty TF cosplayers walking around and new fiberglass statues displayed around the event area. The toy displays were removed this year but they'll be around for the movie promotions.

I'm in charge of the unofficial cosplay so I'm putting pics of them up first, hehe. Some suits were used in previous events but there are new ones too. We were going for Movie characters so my transforming G1 Brawn and TFA Prowl had to be retired for ... transforming Movie Wheelie! Movie Scorponok, Arcee and Shockwave weren't finished in time so we had to double up on Primes, Megatrons and Bumblebees.

Adding the four transforming suits. We had Movie Wheelie, Sideswipe and the twins Skids and Mudflap. It was gratifying when the people taking pictures were all surprised when we transform icon-hotrod.gif The pics above are the vehicle modes WITHOUT the cosplayers inside them so, yeah, they're a bit neater than when they're manned (all panels fit together and all that). The last two pics (only Skids and Wheelie) are shots of the suits being inhabited.

My Wheelie suit pretty much has the RC truck on my back so there's really no transformation involved :/ But I did add wheels on my arms and legs so I could really roll icon-hotrod.gif I brought along a jump rope and people towed me around the mall area, haha icon-hotrod.gif

We did have some G1 statues made icon-hotrod.gif

The fiberglass statues surrounded the event area but some were damaged or not finished yet. The G1 Soundwave statue was ready but lost a thumb and had to be removed. G1 Grimlock in dino mode and Hot Rod weren't used because of lack of spacet. The Movie Prime statue was 25 feet tall, taller than our 20 foot Movie Prime cosplay suit. The cabs of Prime and Megatron vehicle modes were made too.

(yeah, that's me with the pics)

The previous Transformers related 'gift with purchase' would be Autobot and Decepticon masks, rubber and metal keychains and the usual posters. The new GWPs are Autobot and Decepticon paperweights, dogtags, eco bags (Autobot on one side and Decepticon on the other) and special deco boxes made out to look like Prime's trailer. We have a distribution table for 'rare' TF toys to stop scalpers from buying multiple figures of the same kind. Roadbuster was disappearing off the pegs so he was included along with Prime+Comettor, Megatron and the Legends three pack.






Oh, the toy launch was in SM Makati and I'll update this if there's new stuff that appears in the succeeding promotions icon-hotrod.gif
