@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

yeah, at the time im posting this, theres a "2" next to it and me and fruitloop are shown to be the 2 people reading it

@  Telly : (23 April 2017 - 03:33 PM)

i think it just means that someone is reading the shoutbox

@  Fruitloop Mu... : (23 April 2017 - 03:25 PM)

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.

looks the same to me. maybe it looks different cause its smaller?

Revengeance

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

Some people say revenge is sweet. Others say revenge is a dish best served cold. So basically, revenge is ice cream.

@  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)

@  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.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:02 PM)

I KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED! IT'S OBVIOUS WHAT'S HAPPENED! I WANT TO KNOW HOW WE CAN MAKE IT UNHAPPEN!

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 11:45 AM)

you are reacting to movies toys overtaking our beloved generations line for the next 2 years. and yes it is

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

WHAT AM I REACTING TO AND IS ANGER APPROPRIATE?!

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 10:50 AM)

I'll settle for description, though, if anyone knows. It's not in the Virtual Toybox from what I can see. I'd like to see a size comparison of Titanium Rodimus Prime next to Classics Rodimus Prime and Classics Galvatron. Obviously it doesn't really matter which deco of each it is. Basically, I want to know how tall/large he is compared to them. I don't own any Titaniums, but I'd heard he was ok, and if he at least doesn't look puny compared to these deluxe guys, I could use him as my Rodimus Prime.

I can't do photos right now (flatmates in bed, and I don't want to wake him by having to move a heap of boxes to get to the toy room), and the ones I do have are absolutely abysmal and not worth posting, but the size is about the same as a deluxe, give or take a little extra for the bulk that Titanium Rodimus has. (A tad shorter, if anything, IIRC. But not by much)

Hopefully someone will be along soon with a photo, if not, I'll take one tomorrow.

Yeah he's about even with Drift, and I think Rodimus (classics) is slightly shorter than either.

Here are some shots I found online:

Just lined them all up on my shelf.

Both Chug Galvatron and Hot Rod come up to almost the top of Titanium Rodimus's shoulder.

So he's a head and small fraction of shoulder taller that both. (for Hot Rod that height is in the pointy shoulders so he seems a bit smaller)


-ZacWilliam, he's a bit bulkier too which gives him a sense of being stronger than either

The top and bottom link don't work for me. The middle is deceptive. Perspective there makes Galvatron seem a lot smaller than he actually is.

Oooh, those look good.

Anyone wants to post any more, be my guest. But I think that did it. He's taller and bulkier than Classics Rodimus, has similar design cues, making him look specifically like that guy upgraded, and he's taller than Universe Galvatron, which also seems about right.

If I manage to find this guy cheap, I'm going to use him as my Classics Rodimus Prime now. Waaaaay cheaper than Protector, and scales a bit better.

Which is... kinda sad for anybody with only one of them. And I have neither, which is even sadder.

I like TS Rodimus's height. Taller then Classics Rodimus, Just a bit smaller then Classics Optimus, and about the perfect size for Generations Galvatron. I'll take some pictures in a bit, if they are still desired.

The Titanium Rodimus always felt like it could be a Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime upgrade when standing next to the Classics mold. The flame chest detail even feels similar. I love the mold design, and hope Hasbro will revisit it and give us a proper plastic version of the space winnebago which remedies the Titanium problems.



Titanium Rodimus has been the centerpiece of my movie display for some time because of how well he scales with deluxes. I had trouble pulling the trigger on the Protector armor because of how well this works for me.
