Not even head, just a faceeven

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2020 - 12:58 PM)

Just stick a Megatron head on Optimal Optimus.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2020 - 03:56 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2020 - 03:42 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:55 PM)

I mean, there are some decent ones for under a grand. But yeah, I imagine that's what they're thinking. Most people I know, unless they're film or A/V aficionados, all they've got hooked up to their TV is a digital cable receiver and perhaps a game console and dated DVD player

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 09:45 PM)

TM2-Megatron... If that is their assumptions.. That is one of the stupidest way to think.. Especially since Multichannel receivers way to fricken expensive for that. 3000 is way to expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:11 PM)

They probably assume the people who actually need a lot of ports are the type of consumers who'd have a decently high-end Multichannel receiver. Whereas those people who don't need many connections probably don't even have a blu-ray player or anything. Maybe just a gaming console for the kids and an old DVD player.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I saw that movie. I don't want jim carrey in my head.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 November 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Soon beam TV programs into brains with a neural transciever anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2020 - 03:28 PM)

I'm surprised they keep reducing the number of ports on TV's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 02:52 PM)

Ahh.. No.. I mean an HDMI 2.1 switcher box to give you more imputs on a TV. :D Those should have been released in preparation of the XSX and PS5 considering their touting 2.1 features. :D

Probably not until next year. After all, GW is going to need the Space Marine Equal Opportunity Cake when they start rolling out the Xenos codexes (Also I've been seeing from some of my YouTubers rumblings that the Eldar are set to be getting a Necron style line rehaul next year).

I love introducing new people to the film "Event Horizon", and how it's unofficially a 40k prequel.

They bumped the price on the Codexes because they include codes to unlock them in the app. So basically it's a physical/digital bundle deal. Though comparing the two side by side, the Necron one is a booklet in relation to the Space Marine one.

 

Honestly I am so glad I didn't get sucked into Space Marines when I finally settled down with the hobby. I know Xenos players in the fandom like to gripe about not getting new stuff (And Eldar players live in the Dead Sea because there's nothing but SALT in that portion of the fandom), but at least I'm not being fleeced every few months like Space Marine players are.

 

EDIT: To expand on the Eldar thing a bit, I do get the frustration of having models legally old enough to consume alcohol and check themselves into hospitals. I'm not downplaying the fact that an obscene amount of their range in still resin and finecast and that ought to be fixed. But by all accounts, the Eldar still are a force to be reckoned with on the table. They haven't "aged out" of the game and there's plenty of Eldar-like models that offer conversion options and possibilities. But it seems like with every new release revealed there's at least one Eldar player pointing out that it isn't Eldar related.

Their last updated model was $55 for a pack of five monoposes. I'm not sure why they're in such a tearing rush to get model updates when it's clear the Aeldari are going to have to pay the Elf Tax a la the Lumineth.

Yeah the pdfs are nice to have. Good to see someone at GW had playtested enough to realize the powercreep from 8th to 9th was severe enough that some changes couldn't wait for codex support.

Current scuttlebutt is the Mega Gargant models are going to retail for $195.

 

Yeah, no. Makes me really glad I opted for a faction without a big centerpiece model (And $60 for a Freeguild on Griffion still looks better than $130 Teclis with Moon Lion).

My output has stalled due to major funks, but I've made a little bit of progress on things.

I have an old box of Fire Warriors from back when I first tried getting into 40k. Decided to finally paint one up.

Making some more progress on my few remaining Cult models. I know Metamorphs and Shotguns aren't great picks...I don't care.

So while Games Workshop's pricing schemes being completely random and arbitrary is well documented, I feel like they've well and truly lost the plot.

 

New Necron Warriors kit is being put up at $45 and is push fit. Comes with two heads and weapons options and three scarab swarms. Not a terrible price all things considered, seeing as how Neophyte Hybrids are $44 for pretty much the same options (Two sets of heads, two principle weapons), though we also get a (useless but cool looking) Cult Icon and a plethora of special weapon bits (Webber, Grenade Launcher, Flamer).

 

So while the new Necron kit is a bit limited, it's hardly off kilter compared to other standard troop choices.

 

HOWEVER

 

For $50 - $5 extra - you can pick up a Recruit Edition box for 9th Edition. In this box features the very same Necron Warrior kit with all the same options.

IN ADDITION

x1 Necron Royal Warden

x1 Primaris Lieutenant

x5 Assault Intercessors

- Rulers and Dice

- A play mat

- Space Marine Transfer Sheet

Despite having finished exactly two Saurus Spears from my Saurus Start Collecting Box, I decided to move on to the Big Boy of the box.

 

I'm calling the Carnosaur done, but man does the Old Blood have a ton of small details to pick out in painting.

So those latest Preorders that went live today.

 

fqma2ww.jpg

 

Finally, a Cities of Sigmar box set that isn't ridiculously undervalued in terms of what's in it. That being said, Har Kuron being a very Dark Elf name (and me, having been spoiled by what that means), suggests that CoS is getting Daughters of Khaine as allies the same way they can take Sylvaneth and Kharadon Overlords presently. Which, if it's like every other ability means for every four CoS units you'll be able to take one DoK unit. That's going to get expensive.

 

Buuuuuuuuuuuut,

 

While the junkiest unit in the Battletome, Black Ark Corsairs are also the cheapest unit. Black Ark Fleetmaster is the cheapest Hero. Running a Fleetmaster and three units of Corsairs is only 300 points.

 

Oh this is going to get expensive...

 

Oh and also, the Broken Realms story...

Spoiler
