@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

FP added a bunch of images to their DeviantArt page: Link

The most interesting things are perhaps exclusive toys that were rejected: Fangry from BM Beast Changer and First Aid from Cybertron Red Alert. Personally, I'm not too disappointed that they never saw production. Nonetheless, I'm glad to get a chance to see them.

First Aid is pretty much just Red Alert with the red and blue swapped. Too similar to the original toy for my taste.

Fangry...I don't know. It works pretty well, but it seems like it would take a nasty plot contrivance to explain why he doesn't have a robot mode any more. Maybe he's could hang out with Icebird and friends.

That Fangry is possibly the worst thing ever. I see where the idea comes from, but no. That's almost as bad as the time Jeremy trolled me by saying they showed off a Mindwipe/Skullcruncher hybrid from Mutants Soundwave at Botcon.

I too prefer Fangry to Red Alert, plus its a mold that's not been used half a dozen times.

I had doubts about First Aid since it's making an ambulance out of a figure which is basically already an ambulance, but it's sufficiently different enough to get a pass. Also Walky is crazy and the mold is fine.

Fangry is pretty much a perfect use of the mold. Change nothing.
Woooo!

Walky's guessed right. That was my explanation of the lack of robot mode when I pitched the idea to Pete.

I rule.

And yeah, have to agree I can live without this Fangry. The "winged wolf" mode is pretty great, but once you go past that point and have to shoehorn the rest of him into working by using story explanations... Eh, almost just as soon skip it at that point.

First Aid could have worked decently with a more different vehicle mode deco than what Red Alert had, which we're not seeing here so much since this is a super quick concept work using a Red Alert as a base.
