Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

New Thor toys are out. I picked mine up at TRU (20% off coupon to boot).

The articulation cut isn't nearly as dire as the Iron Man 3 or Avengers toys.

Thor sports ball jointed neck, shoulders, hips, ankles, double jointed knees, jointed elbows, swivel wrists and biceps/elbow swivels.
The only real cut that I noticed was the lack of torso (ab crunch or torso swivel) articulation, which is disappointing, but not a deal breaker.

Dark Elf is exactly the same as Thor, minus the wrist swivel.

Kurse suffers from the lack of torso articulation and wrist swivels, but also loses ankle articulation, which given the plastic skirtings that these figure sport, he could have really used. He also has single-jointed knees.

The Nerf Mjolnir is glorious. It also has "He who holds this hammer commands the lightning and the storm" written in runes on the top, which was a really nice touch for a $10 novelty item.

There's not a lot in terms of accessories. Thor comes with his hammer, Kurse has some little grenade thingy, and the Dark Elf has a wrist gauntlet, a weird looking blaster weapon, and a staff/pike.

If you're like me, you're likely going to end up buying both Thor toys and combining them into your ideal incarnation. I gotta say, though, that I'm really liking Casual Friday Thor and his less opulent look. The head sculpt is really great (especially the longer hair). This will pretty much be my go-to Thor head, which will alternate between the two bodies.

Both Thor toys have closed-holes in their left hands, which seems weird. However, it is still possible to slip the hammer into the closed-hole. Dress Uniform Thor has gummier-feeling hands than CF Thor. He also ended up with a black fleck of paint on his right thumb, which amuses me because it's like he smashed it will his hammer at some point.

I mostly bought DU Thor for the lightning translucent hammer. It's glorious. His head sculpt is pretty blase. The helmet really doesn't do anything for me. Too monochromatic and matte.

Glad to know they are all like that. I didn't realize the thing about the hands until I got home from Dallas, 5 hours after I bought them. It was a bitch to get the hammer in the hand of the helmeted Thor.

I'm loving the sculpts on these figures, but I am really disappointed at how limited the articulation can be on armored figures. I also hate how they don't all come with ankle articulation. As a replacement for Marvel Universe, this is kinda meh.

The Dark Elf looks freaking awesome. icon-ironhide.gif

Anyone else see the more articulated Avengers Assemble toys?

I dunno how but they somehow managed to make the articulated toyline as lame as the 5POA toyline. Most everything is a rerelease of existing product, sometimes with a new head. Cap is the lamer Ultimates version, and doesn't even come with a proper shield, just the shield launcher from the film-accurate Avengers figure.
The only neat ones so far might be Red Skull (who's got a ridiculous headsculpt and spring-loaded flamethrower, but uses the kickass Cap movie Red Skull body, plus Toht's coat and a cool Nazi hat) and Black Widow (Avengers body, new head with long hair and black-and-gold coloration).

By the time I got to HTS the last time I saw a post about it, Jean Grey and Black Panther had sold out. I almost caved and did a partial order, but I decided to be patient and it paid off. All 5 of the new ML are in stock right now!

Also, with what wave did this MU Iron Man come? Is there another wave of MU that is coming, or is this something I simply missed somewhere?

Hopefully Hasbro'll learn that there's actual demand for suited figures.

Scrap!

Why didn't someone tell me the Black Knight had been solicited!!

I can't spring for the $100+ giant full wave case and the smaller "new figure only" grouping is already sold out on BBTS.


Anybody find somewhere I can preorder JUST the Black Knight please let me know and I'll be forever in your debt.

Man, I am annoyed at how Cloak/Dagger and now Northstar/Aurora are packed in at random. This running change stuff doesn't seem to have worked out how they were hoping for Legends; it's not working out here. Is there any reason I'm missing that they're doing this instead of skipping,say, one of the tweaked Spider-Men putting both of the pair in the assortment in equal numbers?

Mainly interested in the new Widow headsculpt and the Red Skull hat/coat... I wonder if anybody's gotten around to casting these yet. For an actual Red Skull I'll wait for this one from the next Cap movie line.

I don't think it worked out for Legends either. As far as I can tell, wave two eventually got their running changes and variants, but none of them have appeared after that, and Hasbro may never end up releasing them.

It would seem a completely idiotic decision in light of how badly the Legends variants jived the bed. But then, I have no idea how long ago these MU waves were planned.

Could also just be indicative of some end-of-the-line "who gives a damn"itis.
