@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

First Edition Prime with Targetmasters
another angle

Panic not, my friends. We WILL get another crack at him... and it may even be better, since it seems to be remolded to accept 5mm posts (which lets you mount Targetmasters all over him.)

I'm pretty sure this is also our first clear pic of the targetmasters themselves (not just CGI mock-ups). They are clearly Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, and Prime's weapons.

I must own this.

Ok, I didn't have a huge desire for that Prime on his own. But if I can put one of that Minicon on each shoulder and do some color touchups I might just pretend he's PM Prime...

Sometimes toys on display at toy shows end up never being released. Just ask any collector of Bandai's SH Figuarts.

Either that or it was just a customized display piece to show off the Mini-Con gimmick, but that wouldn't really explain the additional white stripes...
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

The additional stripes look like stickers, to me.

We've known about this guy since before we knew the weapons were Mini-Cons:

So while the questions about the weapons have been answered, Optimus is still a bit of a mystery.

Yeah. I hope we see a US release for the Targetmasters, but I can't really picture them being released on their own, and I'd hate to see it be one of those "store exclusive bundle with a redeco of a toy you bought a year ago" kind of deals.

I wonder how the new Targetmasters will be released.

In a multi-pack?

Individually as exclusives? (seems unlikely with new molds)

Packed with other figures as a partner?

All of them packaged with that Prime (I wish).

the PCC looks like a planking robot. But the silver rifle looks like a rifle with an adjustable stock to me. It looks like a REAL WEAPON, as do all the others.

Don't worry, Hasbro made sure to cancel FE Optimus just so that can't happen.
