At least I can see where the 600 US bucks is going in this case. The MP line looks more ridiculous by the day.

If anything, shipping is going to make the actual toy's price look affordable.

Its like, $550 ish in US money (so probably about $800 for my Australian self) and is taller than TR Fort Max. He's gonna be a hefty boy.

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

I'll have to keep an eye on Baroness and Ravage. Those are the only parts of the set that I'm really interested in.


Same here. I like the idea of Bludgeon, and Hound and Jetfire are okay, but the Baroness/Ravage set is the only one I really feel like I should own.

Kinda bummed that Hound doesn't have more decals. All those little warning signs are a pain in the butt to apply, but I like these crossover vehicles more when they feel like equal parts Joe and Transformers.

Hound and Skyfire..... aside from Skyfire's boosters....
It's going to be real easy for Cobra Stickers to just offer repro stickers and fans to just make their own using unstickered retail releases, isn't it?

Actually, I thought Cobrastickers already made a set of Jetfire stickers for the Skystriker. I know they've done Macross, and some other stuff.

Yep.

Yeah, I just want the figures myself... and even then, it's mainly Bludgeon, and Snake-Eyes if I can get him really cheap, and Baroness I'd want for the head more than anything else... Paris Pursuit Baroness is my go-to Baroness but it'd be nice to have this old-school head design to swap onto.



Meanwhile, I got this Resolute CC to try and replicate Raginspoon's Iron Klaw, but when I had him in hand, the Nazi flair of his outfit made me want to test someone else out first.
Thoughts?

Man, all I want is that Baroness headsculpt. Not even Ravage. The rest of Baroness I can try and get here if it saves me anything. But that sculpt is preeeetty. (Does it look big for the body in that actoys thread, though, or is it just the angle?)

Hope someone casts this head right quick. And if that someone is TofuJesse, that he gets his scheduling and shipping in order.

Well, the Baroness body is the same one used on both the final 25th Anniversary Cobra 5-pack as well as the Resolute multi-pack Baroness releases, so it should be easy enough to score one or the other.

The head is pretty stellar too.

But me, I still want Bludgeon the most.

Everything there is pretty dense though, and it's all packed in such a way as to support and cushion itself a bit. And I guess the harsh reality is it's meant to be an at-show exclusive primarily so having it stand up to normal shelf-wear or shipping was likely not as high on the list as cramming it in as small a box as possible.

Forgive me for moving things slightly, but what's the consensus on the ROCC (Rolling Operations Command Center)? I've read positive reviews online and am thinking of snagging one on eBay, but I wanted to hear from others and get their comments.

Same.

Really the only flaws I heard were how the turret just dangles up high in base mode, and how the "command center"'s chairs are just randomly scattered about rather than organized around the monitors.

But it was damned awesome for $40 though! icon-waspy.gif

Personally, I find the RHINO the more compelling vehicle(s) between it and the ROCC. Plus it has the Aliens APC thing going on and one of the niftiest "mini-vehicles" of the era.
