@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

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.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

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

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  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)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

And now I know and now I know and now I know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me, know that you can hear me.

It's like Hasbro's trolling the fans! "Check out the crappy Duke we made some of you buy while we had this gem hidden!"

And on a down note, it looks like both the black ninja and the Cyber-Ninja lost their alternate heads. Massive bummer, IMO. Especially the Cyber-Ninja losing the Wraith head.

You giddy goat, you. icon-blitz.gif

Still, these pictures are nice. The lighting and spacing on the displays is better than it was at Joecon so you can see some things better (like the complete lack of alternate heads on the black ninja and Cyber-Ninja!).

And man, the women of Retaliation really know how to accessorize better than the men. icon-fire.gif
Have you seen the kickass weapons loadout Lady Jaye has?

Oh, and they mistakenly switched Firefly and Beachhead on the 3-pack displays! icon-fire.gif

Yeah - fortunately I saved my receipt and will be returning crappy Duke and a Cobra Trooper tomorrow. No ankles is one thing, but warped ankles plus no stand makes it worse still. I could only get my other Trooper to stand like he'd just been punched in the stomach.

Anyway - the Night Landing is pretty darn awesome, the the Eel doesn't look right without some red on him though - he just looks like Torpedo.

I can't help but feel like they should've used the unrelease "Arctic Diver Ripcord" body that never came out during POC for the Eel.

Also, the Ninja Combat Cruiser and the Tread Ripper have been found out there.

These are the two vehicles (aside from the Cobra Night Landing) I'm most intrigued about.

I've used that Duke for a Lazy Custom.

Head: Resolute Arctic Duke w/Renegades Ripcord's goggles.
Body arms: Retaliation Duke w/PoC Steel Brigade Bandoleer
Legs: Resolute Stalker's, since the green matches up
Weapon: I gave him the gun that's from Battlefield 2142 (comes with Paris Pursuit Baroness and PoC City Strike Beach Head)

He's my Lazy Mirage, might give him more tech looking legs when I find a spare pair.

Just for kicks, I decided to try how Retaliation Kamakura would look with the more traditional ninja sash and chest strap.
I like it a lot!

Does anyone here have both the Snake-Eyes motorcycle set and Firefly motorcycle set from the Retaliation line?

If so, could you get me a photo of what the two figures look like with their heads swapped?

I was thinking of doing an LBC Kamakura by putting Firefly's head on SE's body, and was debating what I could do in reverse.

Thanks.

So you want to pay MORE.
To get a Kamakura with a whopping SEVEN POINTS OF ARTICULATION.
Pre-posed to ride a motorcycle and do very little else.

Yep and that's fine in my opinion. Twenty-five for a vehicle plus regular, articulated driver is fine. Twenty for a vehicle and gimped lump of plastic is not. And more importantly eight dollars for a single-carded, gimped lump of plastic is insulting.
