Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2018 - 01:09 PM)

There were no shelfwarmer Altenators where I lived.. Cause no one ever got them in. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (15 January 2018 - 12:57 PM)

I have Alternators Nemesis Prime since he was a shelf warmer here.

@  unluckiness : (15 January 2018 - 10:07 AM)

@  Chromedome113 : (15 January 2018 - 07:21 AM)

My first Prime was Alternators Optimus, I still can't transform him

@  Shrug : (14 January 2018 - 06:42 PM)

Ah. I'll try to remember that, but I keep forgetting "Gobots" the Autobot even existed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:02 PM)

"Gobots" is the G2 Autobot Color Changer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:01 PM)

@Shrug That would be "Go-Bots".

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 January 2018 - 03:16 AM)

At least you still had a big beefy super robot with giant guns.

@  JasperGunner... : (14 January 2018 - 01:47 AM)

My first Prime was Cybertron Prime. I was too stupid to know how to transform him lol

@  Shrug : (13 January 2018 - 11:15 PM)

My first Prime was Transmetal Primal. Second was RID Prime. My first Megatron was actually Gobots Megatron. I just didn't know he was Megatron for like 15 years. I often used him as "Roller" for RID Prime and I assume he's never really forgiven me.

@  Telly : (13 January 2018 - 10:39 PM)

my first prime was g1 prime actually in 1984. saw him at a store and begged my grandparents to give me my christmas money early lol

@  unitremover : (13 January 2018 - 10:33 PM)

Mine was Beast Machines deluxe Primal but I don't think I knew he what he was at the time.

@  Dekafox : (13 January 2018 - 09:32 PM)

My first Prime was actually LioConvoy... followed by Fire Convoy

@  Shrug : (13 January 2018 - 11:57 AM)

@Telly, but G1 Rodimus's vehicle mode is so durn sexy

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:30 AM)

PMOP was my second, and my first Optimus.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 January 2018 - 04:29 AM)

My first Prime was Power Master Prime.. And though Titans Return had Power Master Prime.. Power of the Primes feels more like Power Master Prime to me.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:17 AM)

Still wanted Hot Rod too, though.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:17 AM)

I had Rodimus Prime as a kid, he was the first Prime I owned, and I loved 'im.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 January 2018 - 12:27 AM)

At least he doesn't feel like he's about to fall apart in my hands like Masterpiece did.

@  Otaku : (12 January 2018 - 11:50 PM)

As a kid, I remember being confused that Rodimus Prime and Hot Rod had separate action figures. I thought there should be one that you could change between the "two".

@  Telly : (12 January 2018 - 10:59 PM)

'86 rodimus prime was a joke, even by '86 standards. it BARELY qualified as a transformer and his face was terrible

Well, they can use the Skybyte and Sideburn Timelines toys as their RiD selves in the 2012 comic, but add supporting characters. I could see a box set with X-Brawn (Universe Ironhide or RTS Fallback), Scourge (G2 Laser Prime Deluxe), Ro-Tor (Deluxe Tomahawk) and maybe some others.

Although I'm amused at the idea that they might put a version of RID into the American G1 cartoon universe.

Well that Jetstorm guy might be RID Jhiaxus, but it's in the G1 Universe so no telling if he's RID Jhiaxus or someone else (or RID Jhiaxus repurposed to G1/G2 Jhiaxus).

I wonder what molds they'd use as RID Prowl/Mach Alert and X-Brawn/Wildride (boy the Car Robots names are so much better than the RID ones)?

Weird thought, slightly on-topic: could Sky-Byte from G2: Redux be an extra-dimensional plant from the Underbase just like Side Burn from Shattered Glass? The invasion of Underbase warriors hinted at in TransHuman could create a BotCon crossover event between the Wings and SG universes, and an excuse for more RiD themed repaints.

I would love to see a RID themed Botcon. We already have a Sky-byte Megatron (Deathsarus) Sideburn is here and many others have thrown around X-brawn from Classics Ironhide and Prowl from Red alert I know somebody mentioned Scourge from G2 prime. Darkscream from FunPub club exclusive Airazor (new head oviously) Im still working on the other three souvenirs slapper, Gas skunk and Brutter (Bruticus)

What I wanna see is a box set consisting of Energon Constructicon Maximus repainted and new heads into the Build team.

Steamhammer: Wedge
Sledge: Grimlock
Bonecrusher: Heavyload
Dustorm: Hightower
and the new recruit Wideload: Xloader

Xloader is a recent parolee from a short sentence of community service. He was caught building unapproved upgrades for his freinds booster packs using powerful but unstable materials. One of his prototypes had a little too much juice and lets just say Cybertron has few new dents. So fresh out of fixing his mistake he has been given an oportunity to help increase the build teams powerful potenial

Souvenirs

#1: Prowl and Xbrawn

#2: Scourge and Darkscream

#3: Gasskunk and Slapper

Free antendee fig: Brutter predicon dog (bruticus)

"A Flash Forward" is set in the G2: Redux era, isn't it? In which case Sky-Byte will presumably be appearing in the magazine comic?

Could easily do PCC Steamhammer as Wedge. Throw in drones and Sledge as Grimlock and you sort of have a sizeable "Build Team". But I can imagine that might eat up more set budget than anyone really wants so...

I don't know why you would think this. The characters who've turned out to be Underbase dudes have all been specifically called out in-story as being "off" in one way or another. That's not true of Sky-Byte; in fact, he plays a little better with G1 cartoon precedent than most of the other "new guys" in G2R, given that Quintessons making evil Transformers who call themselves Predacons was already a thing that happened.

QUOTE

Or this. Out of three known Underbase characters, only one of them is RID-related. Post-G1-related, yeah, but not RID in particular.

interesting... brainstorming on this was taxing, since most of the major players are either too obvious (Scourge from RTS G2 Prime), too similar to stuff that's already been released (Dreadwind/Smokejumper), or have already been done (SideBurn). Overall, the SpyChangers would be an easy option for con exclusives and freebies. Universe SIdeswide/Sunstreaker would be good molds for them, but there's also the Jazz, Mirage, and Drift molds that could be used for variety.

As mignash mentioned, RTS Fallback mold as X-Brawn would be the better choice, mainly cause the Universe Ironhide mold is pretty lousy.

To be more random and use non-show, but RiD toy characters, Terradive as Nightcruz could be cool, and if the mold would be available, Thunderwing as Jhiaxus would work.
