I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

It's the movie Lady Jaye that's out now... she was originally going to be a show exclusive (hence the bonus weapons).

I'm in the opposite boat.

I *want* most of the figures in that assortment, but my Half.com store has been operating below par and so I've had to scale back my collecting budget to compensate; there's no way I can fit a full case into my budget.

With USPS raising its shipping costs to Canada, I'm gonna be rolling that dice too...

But Data-Viper's probably the lowest on my army builder list... He's neat, but limited in functionality. I'm getting one, but just one.

Speaking as someone who doesn't army build anything, Data Viper's tops on my list and probably the figure I'm most excited for in, like, years. But I have a soft spot for all the '89-'90 Cobras, so I want that Night Viper.

I keep going back and forth on the last wave. I'm almost certain we'll never see it in stores and if we do it will be one case worth and then gone. But man, all the repacks aren't even of the good figures. They're still mostly on pegs right now. The only one worth keeping for customs would be the Lady Jaye. I suppose from that perspective I'm saving money by overpaying for the four new figures... screw it preordered the four. Maybe I'll get lucky and see them before BBTS gets them in stock. Worst case scenario I should be able to sell them again if I have to.

With wave 4 (Ultimate wave), I'm fairly excited/interested in 10 of the 12 figures, so I figured that was a good ratio to justify the expense of a full case purchase. I've been rereading the old GI Joe comics so Kwinn has SOME interest (in that his IS a quality release, though given the option there are about a dozen different things I'd rather take, even an extra CG or CCN or even Data Viper). Budo does NOTHING for me, at all. I think he's a case where hasbro had his tooling done and just dumped him in the assortment (like Kwinn)

But, according to Hisstank, the only thing you can find on shelves are wave 1 figures and the "same old, same old" icon-waspy.gif

I still think a LOT of those people are "seeing what they want to see", not necessarily what's accurately on pegs. Given the naming confusion and all that, I'm very much inclined to say that there were parts of Hasbro's marketing/sales/brand team who didn't realize wave 3 (LJ, etc) saw the kind of saturation it did.

I don't really care about Kwinn at all. He looks boring and isn't a particularly compelling character. His only outstanding trait is that he didn't already exist.

Heh yeah - it doesn't help that the Roadblock's are so similar at first glance and really the upcoming "Ultimate" is mostly a more articulated version of what we've had before.

I'm sure it's regional as much as anything else (and there aren't any currently left on the pegs) but there were plenty of Coltons and Jayes to be had initially. But the extra wave 2 SE/SSs aren't going anywhere - as usual.

Storm Shadow I'll give you, but around here at least, the wave 2 Snake Eyes was EXTREMELY popular, usually among the first couple figures sold of a case it seems. I actually couldn't find him until the 3rd or so refresh here.

I'm mainly into these two waves for Ultimate Roadblock -- prefer this outfit to the Battle Kata one, although I dunno what to do with the chair thingy -- and Jinx. Want to get two or three Jinxes actually, one to keep yellow and one to repaint as Vypra and one I dunno yet. Possibly Data Viper just because he's so unusual, and maybe Blind Master, but even that's a bit iffy since his character in the film wasn't really anything.

The rest... all look good, but I don't really need. Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, Kwinn... all amazingly done, and I'm glad my passing on them at least means there's theoretically more for those who want them.

This is all my own stupid opinion

It's rather dumb, doesn't look much if anything like the actual vehicle.

The driver sits so far down that if you plug the big gap between the cage canopy (that extends beyond the vehicle's front) he can't see where he's going. The weapons when both are mounted can't rotate 360 any-more since they bash into each other. I'd say it's one of the worst vehicles since the VvsV NEUTRALIZER, the Mole Pod is a better vehicle than this.

It's just a poorly thought out vehicle. I'd say go get a PTE tank or track down a RoC Armored Panther.



It is save-able, if you are prepared to do a ton of scratch building and hours of work
