No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

Since I can't find the old TF Wiki thread, here goes this one.

For the page on DOTM-themed books, I'm noting a "Dark of the Moon: Activity Book" listed.

For whoever did that entry, did you mean the "Jumbo Coloring & Activity Book" pair that Bendon did? I just picked those up and was going to add them when I saw that.

Something that bugs me. The new, official North American Headmasters DVDs refer to the leader of the Headmasters as Cerebros. Yet all the episode entries on the wiki name him "Fortress," after the japanese name. Similarly, the TF wiki entry on G1 Cerebros doesn't mention his Headmaster appearances, while Headmasters Cerebros' stuff is thrown onto the Fortress Maximus page.

Givin the Wiki's policy of using the official American names for characters whenever possible, something here ought to be altered. At the very least, a find-and-replace for the Headmasters episode summaries, swapping "Fortress" for "Cerebros."

The articles for the two characters should possibly be folded into one page, too, I think, or else otherwise divided up differently. What exactly each character represents kind of varies from continuity to continuity, but there doesn't seem to be a single one where the pair of them are definitely two fully-defined separate characters.

I mean, in the Marvel Comics, Cerebros exists only to become Fort Max's head. In the Sunbow cartoon, Fort Max is basically just a drone controlled by Cerebros and Spike, and in the Headmasters anime, Fort Max is now just a powered-up giant form of the character now officially called "Cerebros." Basically, if Cerebros is a character in that continuity, then Fort Max isn't, and vice-versa.

Like I said, they could just be merged into one page, or else put Headmasters Cerebros's stuff into the main Cerebros page, perhaps.

In Headmasters, Fortress IS Fortress Maximus. He, like Minerva or Chromedome, is a smaller dude who controls a larger unsentient robot. So of course Fortress goes on Fortress Maximus's page, same as Chromedome goes on, well, Chromedome's page. Should Headmasters Chromedome go on Stylor's page?

It can be confusing, but it's the best solution and it's consistent with how we treat everybody else with the same circumstances.

P.S. "Cerebros" isn't the only official English name the Japanese character has.

wow.

The subs for Headmasters keep sounding worse and worse.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I really, really don't care about what some badly-translated DVDs say. (Why does the Shout! release get priority over the Metrodome and Madman releases, which use "Fortress"?)

The articles are fine as they are. Fortress is consistently the same character as Fortress Maximus. Cerebros is not.

You should read the "Foreign localization" sections of the Headmasters episodes. They're not exhaustive ("scrap" was inserted everywhere), but you'll get the idea.

It appears the Wiki is featuring a photo of a knockoff and claims it's the real deal. The gallery linked in the article (from where the photo is taken) outright calls it a "fake". This one has molded gold plastic painted over on gold chrome (as compared to the other one, which appears to be just regular Henkei Convoy plastic colors painted over in gold chrome), and even that one's authenticity is questionable.

I'm pretty sure there's an error in an article, but I don't want to get into the toy-room right now to double-check against my busts (lot to move and my flatmate is asleep).

The DST Prowl bust was limited to 500. Smokescreen and Bluestreak were 250 each, but I'm pretty sure Prowl was limited to 500.

I'll doublecheck against my own tomorrow, but wanted to note it here now. I also apologise, as I don't know how to edit the wiki myself.

Just out of curiosity, at what point do we acknowledge the existence of these guys (besides Rumble, that is)? They're currently redlinked from the TF '10 toy page, but their articles were deleted. I know we have the "no stolen toys" rule, but that one has the "unless we can be sure these won't be coming out anytime soon" escape clause.
