@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.

The licensed Optimus Prime that transforms itself is the appropriate usage of the term "Third Party"

@  Donocropolis : (10 April 2021 - 08:24 AM)

That Optimus isn't built by Hasbro, only licensed. The company that makes it has been making similar robots for years, so no crowdfundng required.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 08:05 AM)

Apparently they're selling one for 74 and a half thousand dollars.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 April 2021 - 08:01 AM)

We could write boston dynamics and ask?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:59 AM)

Granted, I'm not sure how much robots with elaborate movement tend to go for.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 April 2021 - 07:56 AM)

I think with actual robotics it was easier to justify selling it at a high cost, compared to an unusually large action figure.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 April 2021 - 05:06 AM)

It is a very impressive display of robotics though.

@  tigerhawk : (10 April 2021 - 04:52 AM)

What were they thinking with that self transforming Optimus? should have been another crowd funder for that price.

@  tigerhawk : (08 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

I wish they'd rerelease Earthrise Ramjet and Dirge.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2021 - 03:04 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2021 - 04:26 PM)

It's an older title which recently got a remake so...

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 April 2021 - 01:10 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2021 - 08:03 AM)

It's a video game. You get hired to revive and restore a series of derelict space stations.

I've got no idea what that is but yes.

so... literally the plot to startopia.

@  tigerhawk : (07 April 2021 - 02:32 AM)

Maybe if the Interstellar Alliance collapsed after the big burn and a 'benefactor' repurposed a space station as a commerce one. Oh wait...

I'd rather have a Toilet Seat: TNG sequel series than an actual reboot. If something was done well the first time, don't give us the same-thing-but-worse, just give us something new on that bowl..

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2021 - 10:19 AM)

Context: my parents had the bathroom redone about a year ago (actually, almost exactly a year ago, as the project was about 4 days from complete and was interrupted by the first pandemic lockdown.). The ridiculous, fancy toilet seat they purchased has since develloped cracks in it and needs to be returned. Dad simply could not get the seat off himself... and see previous shout.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2021 - 10:17 AM)

How to ruin somesones day with one question: Let someone work on a problem for about an hour and a half on their own, come to the realization they need an extra set of hands, ask for help, show you the problem and outright difficulty of it: then ask them "Hey, what does this button do?" and literally solve the two man dilema without doing any work.

@  Dekafox : (06 April 2021 - 09:22 AM)

As far as the TNT move, all of Season 5 was basically epilogue, which didn't help - when it looked like things were ending at Season 4 JMS tried to cram all the major plot threads for his original Season 4 and 5 plan into Season 4, which didn't leave them as much to work with for Season 5. Then TNT totally screwed with Crusade and got it killed before it got a chance to hit the real plot and nothing else really resonated enough to get a series push. A Crusade revival would be the best "B5:TNG" option IMO.

@  electricidad : (06 April 2021 - 08:55 AM)

Peak B5 was the first six episodes of season 4. EVERYTHING CAME TO A HEAD.

@  Kevin S : (06 April 2021 - 08:50 AM)

Generally, I think once B5 moved to TNT things went downhill. The sets didn't look as good (maybe due to ill use of better lighting) and I wasn't always as impressed with casting (Sheridan's new 2nd just didn't work). The movies had decent ideas, but I felt there was something off in the execution. Wonder if TNT pushed for different directors that weren't as familar with B5.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2021 - 08:42 AM)

Did the follow up movies do that badly, or does the creator simply feel like his story was told and refuses to allow more content?

@  Donocropolis : (06 April 2021 - 08:23 AM)

I'd rather have a B5: TNG sequel series than an actual reboot. If something was done well the first time, don't give us the same-thing-but-worse, just give us something new in that world.

@  tigerhawk : (06 April 2021 - 01:26 AM)

A reboot would probably be ruined by meddling and different visions anyway. 

@  Echowarrior : (05 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

JMS wrote about half of the first season, a little over half of the second, all of the third and fourth, and all but one episode from the fifth. Given he was also the creator and executive producer, him having so much creative control was likely a condition for getting the show made. Shame he didn't have it for Crusade.

@  Dekafox : (05 April 2021 - 08:44 AM)

They also had JMS write every single script bar maybe 2 or 3? That was another big part of how well it hangs together. Do you think any studio would do that nowadays?

@  tigerhawk : (05 April 2021 - 08:16 AM)

Let it be the first all AI acted series.

@  Echowarrior : (04 April 2021 - 08:31 PM)

Yeah, but would the reboot be as good as the original? B5 had a damn good cast, and they can't replicate that easily.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2021 - 04:33 PM)

One day they'll let a streaminbg service reboot B5 and let the stories be told without the sword of Damocles hanging over them at all times.

@  tigerhawk : (04 April 2021 - 02:32 PM)

It's aged in the set piece areas.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 April 2021 - 02:22 PM)

I don't remember much of B5... I take it we're not talking about cathode ray tubes...

@  tigerhawk : (04 April 2021 - 11:45 AM)

Babylon 5 CRT tech.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2021 - 06:13 PM)

Bloody hell, thanks for the heads up.

Long list here...
  • Deathsaurus and/or Hun-Grr (whatever it's spelled)from Cybertron Scourge
  • The Fallen from Universe 2.0 Galvatron .(could work, probably. if not him, then someone...)
  • Enemy from Rumble/Frenzy (Not sure how likely this would be...)
  • Skyquake from Ultra Silverbolt (some retooling required)
  • Ultra Magnus from RTS Optimus. Also, Turbomaster Thunderclash from same mold.
  • Cybertron Hot Shot from RTS Tracks (considering that they're both sports cars with wings). Which also leaves room for a Goldbug retool.
  • Bug Bite from Legends Bumblebee
  • Ricochet from RTS Jazz. They can give him a PCC mini-con or something. Or even none, since it might cause confusion with Cyclonus' Nightstick.
  • Artfire from Universe Inferno. For the Nebulan partner, same as Ricochet above.
  • Air Warriors from Energon Starscream (the Classics mold has been used a few times too many, methinks). Also, G2 Smokescreen from same mold.
  • Sentinel Prime from Cybertron Defense Hot Shot.
  • Star Convoy from Cybertron Optimus. (okay, probably less likely than most others on the list.)
  • Dead End from Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker
  • Metrotitan from Cybertron Metroplex (why not?)
  • Megaplex from the Classics Tank Megatron.
  • Cy-kil from RTS Wreck-Gar.
  • Seacon Overbite from Beast Wars Transmetal II Cybershark. (Can they still actually use this mold?)
  • Quickmix from Cybertron Quickmix. They can call his Min-con whatever they want.
  • Beastbox from Cybertron Crumplezone (that mold was already ape-ish, anyway).
I think I had some more ideas, but they've either already been mentioned, or I can't remember them right now, unfortunately.

One is sold out and expensive (not to mention tied up with electronics when most people just want a simple toy). The other is a Cybertronian mode that just isn't what some people want.

Now, how the Perceptor mold REALLY solves the latter one, I dunno, but I'm not the one asking for it.

Actually the two Classics Soundwaves are the WfC one and a TRU exclusive reissue of the original 80's toy.

That doesn't negate your response...just take out the "electronics" part and add in "just a reissue".

Generations Skullgrin as a G2 Decepticon/Liege Maximo shock trooper.

Straxus repainted as Protoform X.


Cybertron Unicron in Dark orange.


I'd like to see some generations variants too.

RTS Prime with colors closer to the laser prime toy. Maybe a darker Mettalic grey, painted in matrix, and a different shade of clear plastic.

Also, Laser Magnus and Scourge eventually. icon-op.gif icon-silverbolt.gif


I'd love to see a variant of Straxus, in a darker navy blue. But with those lined Triangle decos on the chest triangles. Like the tampos that Skullgrin has. It's much closer to his comic appearence.

War Within Sentinel Prime. I think there was a Sentinel Prime based on Cyb def Hot Shot that was planned as a convention exclusive, but they decided on Springer instead.

Still better than all those redecos of Bumblebee as Bumblebee. I want the Goldbug more than the Hot Shot, honestly. We need a heroic version of SG Goldbug.

Well, the Perceptor mold does look more like an Earth vehicle than any of the WfC guys. I'm all up for a vehicle Soundwave, honestly.

Also, about that Star Convoy one, looking at the actual Star Convoy, it looks like Armada Prime would be a better match.

And um, more ideas:
  • Cybertron Defense Hot Shot as Onslaught. (it's the back cannons)
  • PCC Searchlight as Sandstorm

So... this.


Yes... And no... I was thinking give him the same clear plastic he had on the original toy. Just clear. Or a much lighter blue that verges on clear. But, to compensate for a lack of coloration. They could add some sparkle to the plastic (incidently I never realized the United ones clear is a very light blue but I'd like something a bit lighter anyways). Also, G2 symbols and painting the yellow details on the shoulders and giving him G2 symbols.


Don't get me wrong I know it's already done. I just think Hasbro can do one one touch better than Takara's. Although I really do like the orange of the Rts. But it's a tad too dark.

Yup, I mentioned Brawn because I couldn't remmeber Fallback's name. But... I felt it was inconsequential to mention him anyways. I mean... I was lookint at it from the perspective of a mass release repaint.

Although, I already have considered just getting a Fall back and Painting him. Everywhere except for the tan parts. Into a close enough Ironfist. So yes. He is a easy transitory custom. Which wouldn't take as much work as an entire repaint by hand.

Definitely agree with the Energon Starscream mold for Seekers. I remember reading War Within 3 and thinking the Air Warriors looked very like Energon Starscream. Plus we can retrofit Seeker drones into the Universe Trilogy.

Megaplex needs some love as well.

Might I suggest Beastbox from the Real Gear X Box controller as the bot mode was definitely reminiscent of a gorilla.

Would kill for Powertrain and Ironworks from RTS Prime with the head in the instructions.

RTS Windcharger would be cool as G1 Gobot Megatron or Blackjack. Wildrider would be nice too.

Tankor as War Within Motormaster?

Regarding Hun-gurrr from Cybertron Scourge, I'd like all the Legends Classics repaints applied to their larger counterparts, especially Blades.

Ratchet as Prowl
Mirage as Skid-Z
Grapple as Wrecker-Hook

RiD Decepticons
Onslaught as Mega-Octane
Hound as Rollbar
Starscream as Windsheer
Jetfire as Skyfire for kicks

Kup would be a better fit for Tow-Line, I think. There's no CHUG tow truck, but a pickup's a closer match than a crane.

Yes I know it's broken. It's an HTTPS thing and I haven't gotten around to dealing with it yet.

If you're going to drop the "tow" and just go with "truck" RTS Optimus might actually be closer than Kup. Considering it's a heavy-duty wrecker truck, not your run of the mill tow truck.
