@  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.

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?

@  ▲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.

On a whim, I went to Target's website, and poked around in their coupon section. Surprise, surprise! Transformer coupons are available to print out!

A direct link to Target's coupon section.

The coupons are $3 off Voyager Class figures, and $10 off Leader Class. Obviously, Dark of the Moon toys only. But good on you if your Target still has some gold box stragglers. The "Entertainment" tab also has a $3 off either Transformer movie, on either format. All coupons expire on July 16th.

Sale prices at Target, all sales end July 30th. Consider this your "movie premier" sale:

Go-Bots - $8.99
Activators - $9.99
Revving Robots - $17.99

Legion Class - $4.49
Commander Class - $7.49
Cyberverse Bases - $12.99

Deluxe Class - $10.99
Leader Class - $39.99

Transformers (2007)/Revenge of the Fallen:
DVD - $10.99
Blu-Ray - $14.99

The way they have it written out like that makes it seem like a lot of different limitations. A more representative wording would be:

And it apparently does not give you an option as to what printer to use, it just prints to your default printer. Oh, and if that printer is a PDF print driver, it rejects it.

Given how horribly people abused that $5 online toy coupon last year? Heck YEAH they're gonna limit this.

I took advantage of the sale yesterday to grab the new-mold Legion Bumblebee so I could see if the craptacularness of the Action Set version was endemic to the mold. Surprise, the solo-sold version felt a lot less cheap and all the joints were in the good range of stiffness.

That coupons printing software always sounded suspicious to me... Maybe I've lost out on $20 of savings in my lifetime for not taking advantage, but knowing what's installed on my machine (and what it's doing) is worth more than that.

And I've read the main reason that they limit coupon printing is not so much the buyer who'll use 3-4, but the store manager who'll print hundreds. Dunno if it's true, but it makes a little sense.

Hmm, if I can get a $30 Sentinel Prime out of this between the existing markdown and the coupon, I may have to go for it.

Yeah, $30 Sentinel Prime sounds nice. However, between me hoping that I'll get him for Father's day and the fact that it really wouldn't be worth the gas money for my wife to drive an hour to the nearest Target, I don't see the coupon being of immediate help. Would've been nice to have two days ago when we were there.

Deluxes are marked down to about $10.99 at the Target I checked yesterday, about a buck cheaper than normal.

I hope that's applicable to the exclusives they're putting out, though. A cheaper Space Case is a welcome one.

I just got back from target - and the coupons *do* work with the markdowns. Grabbed the Target Exclusive Ratchet for a grand total of 15 bucks. Sentinel Prime would have been 30, but I'm holding out to see if they get Ironhide in a week or two (The coupons don't expire till mid jlu, and neither do the Markdowns!)

-edit-
While I'm on the subject, where does Ratchets grapple/claw/cage/thing store on his back? The wiki says it does, but the instructions don't show it.
