I want Dr. Smoov to RUN

@  Bass X0 : (29 September 2020 - 03:15 PM)

I want Dr. Smoov or the Jaboody Show guys to dub over WFC with voices and personalities more in line with the 80s cartoon. That means no more jerk Bumblebee.

@  Maximus Ambus : (29 September 2020 - 01:35 AM)

Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

Pulled out a tote of Star Wars figures that I haven't looked at in 5+ years today.

Got my Mandos all lined up (omitted the Mando Clone Troopers):

IMG_6811.jpg

 

Is there a site out there like yojoe.com for Star Wars figures?  I have a bunch of Jedi/Sith that I can't even name anymore.  Would also like to be sure that I have all of the accessories.  I found a couple at the bottom of the tote that had fallen out of their respective figure's bag.

 

Some of the ones that I have downright surprised me.  Like I have a Lancer droid (IG-style from CW).  I didn't even remember them making one of those, but I've got one.  And tons of Darth Vaders.  I have no idea which version is which at this point.

Rebelscum probably has the best archive, but it's not as in depth.  It's not too bad if you have a general time frame as to when something was released.  If nothing else, us nerds might be able to ID some :p

Yeah, I was looking at Rebelscum earlier, but like you said, if you don't know the year/line, it's kind of a crapshoot to try to find.

Took me forever to find the Mando EE packs (apparently from 2007?  Wow.).

 

I think that's what gets me more than anything - how much time has past and how fast.

How in the heck are my Mando packs 13 years old already?  I think back to when PotF2 came out in 1995, and 13 years before that predates RotJ toys, and those were considered old/vintage back then.  It's crazy that I have what I would consider to be modern toys that are now considered old.  Like probably not for the EE packs, but there's some kid on eBay that's now 18 years old trying to track down the Darth Vader (or whatever figure) that he had as a kid because freaking nostalgia.

Also, is cabin fever getting to the 3.75 hardcore at JTA and similar sites?  Seems like they've gone on another of their "Hasbro is screwing TVC collectors!" moods.

 

I also continue to be irritated at all the complaints of "I can't find anything!" when retailers like EE and BBTS have the figures, on preorder, MONTHS in advance.  We're even seeing extra runs of popular figures.  Instead of trying to play the games Walmart and Target pull with inventory (which is even worse given the low priority toys have in restocking), they could just buy all they want from online guys.

My favorite is one guy saying Hasbro should offer solid cases...which they do.  To online retailers.

I think part of it is buying in store = immediate gratification = momentary respite against lockdown cabin fever.

I know I can order pretty much anything I want from Amazon, but I still swung by Target today hoping to find something that I could buy immediately.

 

And holy carp, I just priced some of my SW figures on eBay.  Wtf?  Who has that kind of money to be spending on a single figure?

 

Like, I have the Joker Squad thing still MISB, and while the stormtroopers are only worth $100 collectively, people will pay over $100 for Sith guy that comes with them loose?

Rumor that a Black Series Zeb is coming along with re-releases of the other Rebels characters.

I hope I'd they do re-releases that they update everyone with their season 3 or 4 look. Sabine with either look and older Ezra would be especially nice.

Edit: 3 not 2.

Making my way through the tote... holy carp, can you believe that Scout Troopers are my favourite Imperials?

IMG_6814.jpg

 

I also apparently have a buttload of Stormtroopers (to be expected) and Sandtroopers (was not expected).

 

I don't even remember buying all of these figures.

Jedi Business seems to have a pretty good search archive. You can search by name, year, or 5-digit number. Just scroll down to tools and look for master list.

Admittedly, I dont know how good the list is, since I only started collecting recently

YakFace and KyloCollector on Instagram have both shared the same photos from a Gamestop computer that shows Zeb as a delux at $39.  Curious what updates, if any, will be done to the rest of the crew.  Id be ok if Ezra got a facelift, his Black Series toy looks like an adult head on a childs body.

I bought an extra Sabine with the intention of converting her to a season 3 or 4 look version with the darksaber, better hair color, jet pack, and gauntlets. I'm hoping Hasbro does it for me.

I didn't even take a picture, I was so amazed.

 

Just found a package swapped Vintage Collection Yavin Medal Ceremony Luke Skywalker. They replaced him with the POTF2 figure from 1997!

Sad that they didnt try to update any of the others with later season looks. Its an easy way to get product out that is wanted more than random movie character # 5. It just seems a few years late. Not sure other than having to fit them in around the movies stuff why it took them this long. But I gotta say I love the new artwork on the side of the boxes. Id almost be willing to buy a set to keep in box.

Almost :D

Disappointed that everyone is the same. Hoped that there would be changes.

Have the originals, so ordered Zeb. These are about the only Star Wars Black figures I have.
