I'm curious because I'm not an 80s kid nor have I ever held an actual 80s toy in my hands, but I'm pretty sure a mathematically significant portion of 80s kids here do have a like for cartoon accuracy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2017 - 08:15 PM)

How much of this community favors versus not favors the current Hasbro design team's general trend of accuracy to classic 1980s toys and lack of attention to any other era of Transformers?

Re The Rise of Cobra: I like bad movies and action sequences involving elite ninjas, so I watched / fast-forwarded through it on Netflix a couple of years ago.

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:23 PM)

Can anyone tell me why the Shoutbox has a notification (a "1") when I login sometimes? I scroll through and don't see anything addressed to me. What does it mean?

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I miss the 2000s when my local stores got new toys more than once a year.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 01:09 PM)

I mean, it might be hard to not know about something before release at all, but the degree of familiarity that you described is only attainable if you intentionally seek things out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:59 PM)

That's at least partially your own fault. The "in motion" part sounds like you even watched videos, which require conscious effort, unlike pictures that might be hard to even avoid.

@  Bass X0 : (23 April 2017 - 12:22 PM)

I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

'Sides, we all know the best G.I. Joe movie is Street Fighter, even if people haven't realized it yet.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 April 2017 - 05:14 PM)

What's the general opinion here about G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra?

@  BlackMax : (22 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

In response to whether Arachnid Base or Orcanoch is the weirder.

@  Foffy : (22 April 2017 - 02:07 PM)

Did somebody mention wallabies?

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

The Bot Shots look promising, especially the Optimus with trailer.
The new Voyager Optimus Prime looks good too.
Legion Breakdown, Soundwave, Evac and Mirage!

Sealed case of 8 including:
TRA LEGION BUMBLEBEE 2
TRA LEGION VEHICON 1
TRA LEGION ARCEE 1
TRA LEGION BREAKDOWN 1
TRA LEGION EVAC 1
TRA LEGION SOUNDWAVE 1
TRA LEGION MIRAGE 1

Sadly Breakdown is a legion not a Command class. But still good he's getting at least one figure somewhere. Unless he ends up being larger like Legion Crowbar does.

Edited by Dr Syn, 19 January 2012 - 07:51 AM.

Legends class figure when? REAL SOON!!

Might be a new version of Hot Rod.
I think they've said that they're going to call him that from now on so he doesn't have to be named "Rodimus" pre-Primedom.

That would make sense. I'm also getting really curious of all this.

Thoughts:

Look at Bot Shots BBs chest. Looks like theree's some kinda game built into them. I wonder if that square with the stats is a rub sign? Hmm... Not sure what to think of them... Like the size and engineering a lot, not as sure about the superdeformedness...

Mirage and Hot Shot. I HOPE Mirage is a G1-inspired Legend to add to those ranks. I have a feeling it'll possibly be based on the yet unmade Movie character though. Bleh to that. I want more non-show G1 based Cyberverse. Hot Shot is a potentially interesting listing... Lets all just stare at Walky until they reveal a pic and then judge who it is by his reaction. icon-arcee.gif


-ZacWilliam, kinda liking the Voyager Prime and wondering if it might be just G1y enough to go with my classics figures. Will wait and see in person...

Yeah, like I said in the other thread, I'm pretty sure these are meant to compete with Bakugan.

I'm surprisingly interested in the ones with trailers. I thought I was going to be able to buy one or tow of these as novelty pieces, but I'll be damned if the trailer ones don't make me want to buy all of them. To make a mini-sized fleet of vehicles.

Well, I rather hope the RiD release of Arcee and the Vehicon are pretty much the same as their First Edition release, so other countries can get a crack at them without importing, as it looks like they're re-releasing or re-colouring everything else from the FE wave, short of the earlier Cliffjumer mold...

I think the size may decide me. If they're really cute and really super tiny I think I may want a bunch. The larger they are the less interested I am since I have better figures at the larger sizes.


-ZacWilliam, I will admit that trailer is super neat looking. I wish the Cyberverse figures had a trailer that looked that cool.

Bot Shots look fun in that "if nothing else is coming out this month and I have a few bucks burning a hole in my pocket" kind of way.

I'm kind of curious whether the same non-show characters will show up in both Cyberverse and the main line, or if they'll be independent of each other. (I guess judging by the DOTM lines, it's the latter?)

I'm liking this Optimus a lot more than the First Edition mold. More solid, more technogreeblie stuff going on with the chest windows, and the airfoil actually transforms into his shoulders like it's meant to.

I've now cancelled my preorder for the First Edition voyagers, which means I have no idea how I'm going to find Bulkhead. Surely he'll get some kind of real release.

Looks like he's going to have some light-based gimmik like with that voyager Starscream we saw and the Cyberverse Commanders.

Personally the new voyager Prime looks a bit too.. naked and not show accurate enough for my tastes.
I might get him eventually, but it will depend on how many Megatrons they make.
