It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

Btw, here is one last prophetic foretelling: the customisation class figure shall be SG Oilslick, using the Treadshot figure (as the Universe figure was a repaint of U. Treadshot). In Animated Oil Slick colors. icon-hotrod.gif

That would be amazing.

"Disabled people don’t 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 isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

....aaaaaaand I don't want it. I mean, it's a nice deco of the toy, and that's actually one of the better exclusive headsculpts I've ever seen, but it's TOTALLY NOT TREADSHOT. Trust me, I know, LOL. What it is, is Armada Sideswipe in a Jazz body with a bigass Decepticon logo.

okay, now my interest level in this set has dropped off considerably. A G1-colored Warpath redeco would have been GLORIOUS and a must-buy, and you could have even gotten away with not changing the head.

Since it looks like ALL the rumors ARE true, I don't even know if I want this. I don't want Insecticon colored Junkions. I don't want a Soundwave van with a goony face (if I cared about SG, which I don't, I already have the white Music Label Soundwave), I like but don't need Road Rage, I don't need Giga, I don't feel emotionally connected with a new toy of MY NAMESAKE. What I do feel is underwhelmed. There is no way I am springing $400 for this when I could buy a completely new-mold Devastator for that price.



I find the word underwhelmed annoying, and its been in like fifty posts about botcon. Is there some instruction book out there on how to criticize botcon exclusives.

1. use the word underwhelmed
2. say head sculpt sucks
3. bring up what could have been
4. curse fp for making fans tf exclusives
5. say your quitting transformers because of this set
6. ......


Interesting, because I find your annoyance underwhelming. icon-arcee.gif

Maybe the fact that it's been used so often is because THAT'S HOW PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT THIS SET? I don't think it sucks by any means, I just don't WANT it. (if they had made the Battlechargers part of the set and made SG Treadshot and SG Tracks the Club exclusives, I BET there'd be WAY more excitement about it!)

And for the record, I'm not one of those guys who hates everything. I said I LIKE the deco. Just not as TREADSHOT. (it doesn't ACTUALLY homage ANY Treadshot!) I have bought many BotCon figures and even a few whole sets in the past. But with the plethora of aftermarket and third-party goods available now, it just doesn't make sense to spend this much money on wacky redecos with new head molds, when I could get a set of completely original toys that is a much more 'spot-on' fulfillment of 'what I wish I could buy at retail'. There are just too many things I don't want, in EVERY BotCon set; the philosophy of 'force people to buy Cindersaur to get Rapido' has lost me. I might spring and/or trade for a few individual toys I want (as I did with the Wings of Honor set) but that'll probably be it.




I thought it was esstablished earlier in this thread that treadshot is a homage to universe treadshot, and sideswipe, just saying thought I read that.

I've bought almost all the botcon toys and some third party, in most cases the hasbro molds are made better, and I would rather have an official exclusive any day. That said I do like the 3rd party set you are refering to, but if I had to choose, the botcon toys would win every time.


I established for myself that this character is an homage to a figure that was repainted into a Treadshot. But that's like calling God Ginrai an Ultra Magnus homage. it's not the same thing. It's like a direct homage twice removed or something.

I will say this: for what it's worth, I'm one of the few people in the fandom who has ALWAYS gravitated to Treadshot. Yeah, he was a non-character, but he was arguably THE most interesting-looking Action Master. It baffles me that many equally obscure but far less visually interesting toys have gotten much better homages.

I'm sure he will be a cool character, it's nice looking, yadda yadda yadda. DEVASTATOR. #thatisall

But like I said, that's why I'm just not that into shattered glass as a whole. It NEVER quite satisfies me. When it's something that sounds cool, it's never as cool as I hoped. When they do something really clever and cool, it's usually by giving backstory to an existing toy. I could see how it's cool to have funky toys turned into actual characters but it's not inspiring enough to really motivate me to fork over RENT for.
