Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

Each figure comes with bonus parts (like the last wave did for Rodimus) to make the Full Deathsaurus (I imagine it includes his Breast Force plates and/or weapons).

Y'know I really wish they'd do real G1 style toys like this. I mean compaired to modern toys the G1 guys were Quite simple and had a pretty small number of parts. I would think it'd be pretty cheep, compairitably, to churn out new actual Scramble City molds to be blindpacked.

That would be so cool...


-ZacWilliam, just a dream, I know, but blind packed G1 level Scramble City bits would be amazing... Especially if we got new team themes too... Makes Homer Simpson gurgling noises...

It looks like you could still build a G1 style Defensor if you wanted to, since Skyfeather apparently becomes a shield, and Heatrock a chestplate.


Yes, that's the whole point of them combining with the larger Hot Spot. They right out and say that. You can do normal Gaia Guardian or God Gaurdian whose basically Defensor with sheild and armor.


-ZacWilliam, I want to see the new guys Dery-ized now.


Yes, I realize that they can combine with Hot Spot. My point was that the new guys are not required for that combination.

Neither Gaia Defensor nor God Defensor is the original Defensor, though. Gaia is just the six "limbs", God is all seven guys. There's no picture here of regular old Defensor.

God Defensor is all seven guys, but specifically he's Defensor holding Skyfeather in one hand and wearing Heatrock on his chest. So it's not unreasonable to think you can probably do a regular Defensor.

These are all gang-molded too, so that affects the character choice.

But, for a combiner, I'd prefer them like that. Makes them look more of a team, as opposed to 'those 5 random bots we found and stuck together'.

That's not necessarily true (if say Deathsaurus had a darker blue and a lighter blue with the lighter blue not being used on Optimus). He could use a lighter blue if he's the only one to, but based on the pictures of the combined Guardian yeah he's going to be darker.

How's the plastic and paint quality on these?

Man, this is the first new "real" transforming Deathsaurus toy that people will care about (RIDMegs need not apply) in 20 years. It's enough to make you think there could ever be a chance for a reissue or update.

No paint. Plastic is good considering their model kits (they're not fragile like Gundam kits can be). There is a little bit of give in the plastic like normal TF's tend to have.

What paint? icon-waspy.gif

They're cheap, snap together model kits that come with candy.

I haven't bought any of these, but if they're anything like the Super Sentai candy toys, they're at least molded from sturdy ABS plastic, so they won't be super fragile or anything.

They're molded in up to three basic colours, with a ton of stickers for detailing.

I have Ultra Magnus and the God Ginrai combiner. The plastic quality is better than I thought. It's obviously cheaper than a main-line transformer, but it's still good and solid. The stickers are holding surprisingly well, too, mostly. There's a couple I occasionally need to smooth down around the edges with a toothpick.

I have a suspicion you might be right, Thy, and that's just a mock up using a picture of the G1 toy (the pictures down the side are of the box are the previous wave of kits). He'll be more than just blue, though - they come molded in three colours (I'd guess dark blue, light blue and red?) - but these things do have an *insane* amount of stickers.
