" his weakness to fire." i can see the battle now: "you may have beat me to a bloody pulp, broken both my legs and shattered my spine, but i have a LIT MATCH!! whatre you gonna do NOW???"

許されざる者よ!

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:50 PM)

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Every other MP I want I have. I wonder how cheap Inferno is at retail...

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

I wonder if Star Saber is still around at retail. I don't know what it all looks like over there.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Ask them to bring back a real live japanese person for you.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 04:01 PM)

I'd say "any TF you don't already have" but I guess that's too general.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 03:46 PM)

So hey I've got a buddy going to Japan for a vacation. What would be a good thing for him to bring back for me on the cheap? I've already got MP-36 so I'm not sure what else would worthwile...

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

Did no one really post this yet?

TFW

Didn't see another thread for this, maybe I looked in the wrong place.

Anyway, it's all awesome. We have a full line of TFP CV toys...and all of them come with weapons. Some may not like that they're energon weapons, but I think it's cool and a nice throwback to TF:E.

Cliffjumper - legion. Red weapon that looks like a gun, but has an edge at the "barrel", so it might be a sword or gunsword. Cool transformation, and he looks to have both elbows and knees.

Bulkhead - maybe a legion? only one weapon, which seems to be the differentiator (the Commanders have 2 energon pieces). Anyway, he still looks pretty massive. His shoulders are clearly mistransformed. Weapon is a bit meh; blue, maybe some kind of blunt gun. Weird blue lightpiping in the hood. It ends up in front of the clear windshield to form his chest, so maybe it represents spark glow or something?

Car Eradicon - pretty cool, but has a cheaty transformation. Weird weapon, looks like a gun with a blade mounted in off to the side. Purple, though. Shown in car mode with what is clearly one of Optimus's swords.

Megatron - commander. It, honestly, doesn't look much different from the deluxe. Pretty impressive. Dark energon torso armor and sword. (his arm cannon is normal plastic).

Starscream - I think it's a commander, as he comes with 2 null-rayish guns. Pretty lithe, though.

Optimus - Looks better than the deluxe, I think. Shown with 2 of his guns (blue), but judging by the sword with the Eradicon, the second gun is probably from an extra Optimus and the actual toy likely comes with 1 sword and 1 gun. I can't really tell from the packaging pic. Edit; nevermind, the packaging pic says 2 cannons. Maybe a repaint comes with the sword?

Wheeljack's ship - looks a lot better here than in the SDCC mock ups. Lots of clear weapons, but I don't think they're removable. I'm a lot more prone to buy this now.

Oh, and BB in car mode has a light purple (not the same color as Megatron and Eradicon's stuff) buzzsaw on his car roof. Who does this go with? Maybe an unseen Airachnid?

I think I like these better than the large figures so far. I don't feel the need to own a lot of large Prime guys but a small (literally) army kinda appeals.

-ZacWilliam, and that Wheeljack is DEFINATELY joining my G1 Legends figures.

Pretty sure all the single-weapon toys are legion and the double-weapon toys are commanders.

There does seem to be less difference between their actual sizes, though; I think Bulkhead is a legion, but he doesn't look like he'd be much smaller than Optimus of Megatron. Starscream, on the other hand, looks pretty low mass, but has 2 weapons and is tall.

I'm loving that guys like WJ and the Eradicon are getting toys. I may not be buying the complete line of full-size toys, but I'll get all the CV stuff (with possible exceptions for playsets).

And, with all the stuff they're showing here, I've got pretty decent confidence that guys like Breakdown and Knock Out will get made too.

I'm pretty sure we heard at Botcon that Bulkhead's a Commander. The only guy I can remember being Legion offhand is Wheeljack.

As for size, check out the very first image. Megatron's way taller than Arcee.

Bee and the Eradicon are definitely legion. I could buy Bulkhead being commander; I was just sticking to this "one weapon = legion" schema in my head.
