Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

That AdBlock message has popped up on my iPhone *without* any type of ad blocking, and the mandatory 30-second wait means I'm just not bothering with the site on there anymore...

@  BlackMax : (17 January 2017 - 12:05 PM)

So far it's only happened the one time for me.

@  Ms Virion : (17 January 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I got the popup on a tablet I just bought that I haven't even installed anything on yet. =|

@  Fnu Aw : (17 January 2017 - 09:50 AM)

I've got the same problem. I disabled my adblock on this site, but I'm still getting that message.

@  Jalaguy : (17 January 2017 - 09:38 AM)

I got the ad block warning on my work PC yesterday (with no blocking on), but not my laptop at home.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (17 January 2017 - 08:53 AM)

I wish the ads would stop showing me things I want but can't afford to have

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

Not sure on the magazine, sorry. Believe the images for the exclusives are new though, seem to be the final versions as opposed to previous mockups.

Whoa, he's actually an evil Prime for once! I do believe those are Con symbols on Prime. He and Megs look sweet; always have had a thing for these types of repaints.

Well golly, TakaraTomy actually made a black Optimus redeco that's a Decepticon! Both him and Megatron really look great!

Comparison of previous mockup photos to the actual toy/new publicity photos.

Before:
cybertron_opvsmeg.jpg

After:
21kjq84_crop.jpg

Definitely an improvement in my opinion, and glad to see Optimus as a Decepticon (as much as I hate how a lot of users on another board always refer to a black Optimus as Nemesis Prime/Scourge, it's nice to see one actually be one). I think these two look great.

Apparently I'm the only one talking about these but Megatron reminds me a lot of his new form in the IDW comics, which is very cool!

Would have been kinda interesting to see a heroic "White Megatron" to counter Black Convoy. Still, that Megs is pretty nice looking.


ZacWilliam, yes White Megatron would take some creative decking to look different enough...

Probably wouldn't matter too much to TakaraTomy, considering their United Cybertronian Megatron is a very dark gray and not very light gray like Hasbro's.

I'm kinda not interested in the Black Prime now, before I liked him becuase he looked like pre-earth mode of the SDCC version, which I have. Now he's just the standard all black which is boring in comparison.

I think the teal highlights and red windows are much more exciting looking than the very dark version we saw before (as everything was all kind of the same level - the dark teal and the black). Though he did look like a Cybertron version of Universe Nemesis Prime. I prefer the stark contrast of the teal and red against the black.

I have to say I feel the same way. As cool as it would have been to get a pre-Earth SDCC Nemesis Prime...That color scheme just looks so bland on this mold.

So adding the teal and red and contrasting those and the silver against pure black really does make for a more visually interesting color scheme. Even if it's just more of the same Black Convoy/Convoy Black Vers. concept.

Ah teal, such an evil color..apparently.
I wonder who decided that and why. I know the the first toy/character to us it was Black Lio Convoy.

Red too, but only as a highlight.

Even the original lucky draw Black Lio Convoy used gold instead of teal, it was the TRU exclusive one that used teal first.

I think it was Car Robots Black Convoy that really solidified it (since it wasn't used on the Black reissue Convoy, Black Fire Convoy, or Black Big Convoy).

But it's used on plenty of the heroic Black Convoys/Optimus too (Henkei, Animated, Masterpiece).

Well that just saved me a couple of hundred bucks, I was all over the mock ups, but those new pics don't do it for me,
I was particularly excited for the megs mock up, I hadn't opened my United WFC Megs because of it, I may have to re-think that policy now icon-blitz.gif

Oh well At least I can better justify getting a Stepper since these two are an easy pass.

Not when it's complimented with a nice bright silver, bright teal, and vibrant red. The original mockup was just kind of ho-hum dark repaint. This has some pop to it! icon-hotrod.gif
