Does that hold true for the accent of any British Allsparkers here?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2019 - 01:56 AM)

I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

@  Otaku : (20 August 2019 - 11:28 PM)

@Sabrblade Part of me wishes I had purchased the coffee cup with that comic when it was for sale.  The rest of me knows I didn't have the money for it. XD

That's the Superdeformers version. He uses the MacGuffix to warm up his coffee.

Runner-up dumb idea: A Bizarro-like clone of Hot Rod named Not Rod.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 August 2019 - 06:25 PM)

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

@  MEDdMI : (19 August 2019 - 07:28 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2019 - 03:46 AM)

His work is never done.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

Tabitha's also an X-Force member! I mean, if it's Nextwave themed she wouldn't have her 90's outfit, but I figure they'd likely include a more classic alternate head.

Everybody who wants a Groot should have the opportunity without needing to buy an entire wave, I'm all for it.

The only difference I'm seeing between it and the Groot I have is the head sculpt, looks like? Really wish they'd have given us someone more interesting than Titus to build this time around.

This is a pretty cool deal. I think it's historic too - Hasbro has never rereleased a BAF that I'm aware of.

 

Of course,  I fully expect to find one returned missing the young Groots and one other random part, or with the old head swapped in for the new.

Give it a 4-5 year cooldown and release away.

Well, not technically. Dormammu was the reverse of this, as he was an exclusive broken up into individual parts.

 

The EE-exclusive Guardians set also had the BAF Groot but with a Comic head.

 

A weird one was Move Hulk. He was released by himself in an Avengers Movie wave, broken up with new parts as Ultimate Green Goblin, then sold individually again as AoU Hulk.

 

As for the newly revealed stuff...I don't much care for the Warlock BAF but I really want Cyclops, Colossus and Sunfire, Shatterstar and Old Man Logan are maybes.

 

There's also a leaked Sue Storm with Herbie that I want so much.

 

I haven't been able to collect much ML these days. My Target has not been stocked at all. I haven't seen anything since Doctor Strange leftovers so I'm a ways behind.

I figured there had to be some exceptions out there! ;) I guess they are working to get more out of their molds. Now if only they could find an excuse to go waaay back for some of the Toybiz BAFs we'd be in business - I never did complete an Apocalypse.

 

That Sue Storm seems somewhat out of left field, but she looks good.

The Toy Biz ones are legitimately huge and they likely don't have the molds as they're Toy Biz and not Hasbro.

They still have access to those molds. The most recent example I can think of is the Bullseye body for the white Iron Fist costume in the Odin wave.

If anyone wants the Angela fig from the upcoming GotG wave, I highly recommend pre-ordering her on Amazon (where she is available now). Not only was she the top-selling action fig on there as resently as a couple days ago, I have a feeling she is going to be impossible to find.

Agent Venom was more recent, I'm pretty sure, and he's built upon the Face-Off Punisher body.

 

The Piledriver and Wrecker were built from Hulkling, IIRC.

 

But unless one of those old molds somehow suits their needs, I'm pretty sure they've retired the older ToyBiz toolings at this point.  They've built themselves a solid repertoire of new bucks to suit almost any purpose, and IMO, they're all superior to any of the ToyBiz toolings.

I wouldn't be surprised if the tooling came with the deal, but in reference specifically to the BAFS (not the regular figures) I know it's unlikely. It would be nice to have shots at complete Apocalypse, Galactus, and Sentinals at a decent price. They seem to go for an average of 90 bucks shipped (with the Sentinels even higher).

BAF Red Hulk got a 2pack release, with his originally designed head (IIRC?) and in green, so there's another for the list of BAF's that got a rerelease of sorts.

Thanks for posting this!  I was able to get a pre-order just now.  Was afraid I would have to hunt after I missed the single at BBTS.

 

As for the BAF stuff, did anyone mention Abomination?  We got the SDCC Raft one, and a true BAF version later in the Captain America wave.

Glad to help!

 

I actually just finished Abomination recently (since the individual figs were all around $10 on Amazon). He's pretty great. Nice and hefty, good articulation and sculpt. I'm very pleased with him.

 

And after finishing the Sandman BAF and picking up Enchantress at retail, I only had to boom up for Purple man from that SDCC set. I'm very pleased about that!

I loved the Purple Man figure.  Kinda sad about my BAF Sandman, though.  The thin peg on the left leg did not go in all the way when I attached it.  I rotated the leg and it tore.  :/  Now I need another Ms. Marvel, just to complete the BAF.
