Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

They seem to be treating all the games with the same reverence.Even ReCoded, which was just an excuse to redo the first game again.

TakaraTomy's Exclusive Vortex. Vortex is a retool of Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk with an alternate tooled head, MechTech weapon, and a new insertion hole under the cockpit in helicopter mode.

Nice photos, Randy!
The colors on him are really nice. And the new head really makes him distinct from Tomahawk.

Thanks he's quite neat. I still prefer Tomahawk (mainly because of the better weapon integration), but he's a close second.

One thing that reaffirms this figure may have been completely TakaraTomy's work is the fact that almost all the paint detail layouts are exactly the same as Tomahawk's (much like Henkei Starscream/Skywarp/Thundercracker and Lambor/Alert - which is TakaraTomy's MO). Only differences are the very unique things between them such as symbols and striping (and a slight alteration to the calf paint detail).

Grmblgrhmbrrgrrr... icon-megs.gif This is awesome, and it is NOT coming to us?

I am afraid to wait for a Generations release that might or might not happen, so will most likely pay out of my nose and grab one on ebay as soon as I can. He will look great next to Universe Onslaught and PCC Heavytread (to be repainted as Brawl).

Also... purple decepticon insignia? Odd on a movie toy. And what I am most surprised about is how much taller the head is then Tomahawk's, when that head already hardly fits through the open canopy when you flip it down... I'm curious how they managed to make it fit.

It definitely seems like a TakaraTomy only endeavor/figure, but you never know if it could end up in a two pack or perhaps in Generations when it starts up again.

Looks great, I'm really excited and glad to see him next to Onslaught. I think this deco does invoke Vortex more than the Universe/ROTF five pack version did.

By the way, if anyone wants one, I accidentally got a couple extras from BBTS. I could cancel some for store credit probably, but I figured I'd just as soon sell them to people at cost. If anyone is interested, let me know!

I'd be interested. How much would he cost? Or check my trades to see if you'd be interested in a trade. (Link is in my signature).
