I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

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.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  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)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  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)

You wouldn't want to anyway

@  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

The Bot Shots look promising, especially the Optimus with trailer.
The new Voyager Optimus Prime looks good too.

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.

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.
