@  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)

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

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.

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

You'd think they'd reveal the mystery 13th figure now that the sub is online. If anything as extra incentive to get people to sign up.
But these guys, for inexplicable reasons, have such boners for "surprises" that I doubt people will know until they receive it in the mail... :/

It doesn't help them. Unless the figure is so poor that it'd be the only way to distribute it.
I mean suppose it's Dragonsky or Kwinn or a labcoated Dr. Mindbender. That'd make people on the fence about the whole thing more likely to join, no?

Well it's not Dragonsky. He's in the next year's FSS. And it's not Kwinn, since they've have the set finalized since before that figure was revealed, let alone canceled. I realize that has nothing to do with your point, just saying.

Yeah, I think $35 is okay for a figure I really want without the hassles of the club or dealing with 10 or so figures I don't really care for. Would have liked Iron Klaw, but $45 is a bit much.

Fair enough. icon-waspy.gif

In things completely unrelated to the FSS, besides the fact that a google search for Dice ref pics led me there...

Well I can't believe I never noticed this before. And I sure as shockers didn't notice anyone talking about it.
But the ninja and zombie multipacks come with a buttload of extra weapons not shown on the figures:
http://generalsjoes....oncept-figures/
The ninjas have a big bunch of extra weapons including Retaliation Storm Shadow's 3-pack folding bow, a new tri-sectional staff, the Valor vs Venom era "nunchaku" (actually the spiked ends of 89 Snake-Eyes's spiked tri-sectional staff with a small connector), a new blunt weapon as well as a plethora of varied ninja-related weaponry.

But the zombie pack's supplements are the real winner. They're not zombie weapons. They're zombie-fighting weapons. Shotgun, chainsaw, machetes, knives, blunt weapons, medical supplies from Lifeline, ROC Cobra Commander's injector, hell even Valor vs Venom Dr. Mindbender's laptop with vials!

Just more reasons Hasbro needs to make these packs happen. ASAP.

I thought the 13th figure was already revealed, when the Club inadvertently posted the card art for it.

EDIT: I can post the image, but not if people don't want it spoiled.

Hey look, another "Detour finds out stuff he should have long ago" post so soon!

An artist who did package art for the Pursuit of Cobra line posted some art headshots for figures never seen, and what became Nano-BAT:

Zap and Nano-BAT

http://twitter.com/m...2/photo/1/large
Budo and Dr. Mindbender.

Yeah, Budo would be a good 13th freebie and probably would put some people over the top on the sub. That being said, I just need to get off my butt and finish my custom and I'll call it good enough too.

Budo wasn't the leaked package art. But that might've been misdirection.

I'll admit, though, I'm no fan of that version of Budo. By the look of things, it's basically the armored up Storm Shadow with a new head.
I don't really want a 100% samurai Budo. I'd rather a mixture of samurai and modern military, somehow.

Goddammit. I wish I'd known these things were on BBTS before half the ones I wanted sold out.

I may have to rethink the FSS solely on principle. I'd accept an insurance ultimatum from most any company, but not one that keeps forgetting to send me the club magazine and one year forgot to send me Side Burn.

Same here; I'd rather buy some junker figures off of E-Bay, pick up the occasional repro bit (anyone have the link to the site that makes repro heads and torsos?), and kit-bash everything together than take a chance with FSS.

Yeah, they forgot to send me the Copperhead membership figure one year, and it was a pain in the ass to get it sent out to me eventually. By the time I actually got it, I just didn't care anymore and didn't even bother opening it.

It also just occurred to me that it appears they are going ahead with this regardless of subscription numbers? No Matty-like threats of, "If we don't get enough it's all off". I wonder if that's the case or they're just waiting to see how it plays out.
