Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

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

@  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.

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

They are in their own wave.
Hotspot is part of Kabaya Wave 5 (along with Deathsaurus and WFC Optimus)
The other Protectobots are in the Gaia Guardian wave.
Seems both waves were released simultaneously.

The plane as a shield in super-combined mode is a little forced, but other than that it's a nice combined mode. A shame we only get these cool takes on combiners in Kabaya figures. Obviously the resources to try these kinds of ideas aren't there for real toys, but you can't help but think how cool a Protectobots re-issue with two extra components would be.

It looks like Deathsaurus himself comes with a "solid" outer chestplate for him to wear, and at the same time there is an entirely different-molded transforming Tigerbreast chestplate / animal partner packed in with one of the other figures that Deathy can wear too. So if you just buy Deathsaurus by his lonesome he'd at least look complete.

Yeah, looking at the boxes, the tiger comes with Optimus, while the hawk comes with Hotspot.

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.


I wish that were the case, bt interest hasn't been too great among the general Japanese public in late G1 reissues, historically speaking.

I had been waffling on getting these, but finally decided to take the plunge after seeing pictures. I think hlj.com is the cheapest option? You end up getting way more than you need, but you can sell the extras on Ebay or whatever.

Deathsaurus looks wonderful, but is simply too complex for his size and construction method. Some of the plastic tolerances don't work quite right - the head doesn't really snap into place but just sits in the hole between his shoulders, and the dragon tail is too small to have sufficient torque to completely clip together, as its own hinge seems to work against it. It's also more of a partsformer than I had expected, even at this size: you have to take off the wings and the arms, and Eaglebreast must be disassembled in order to "wear" him.

But damn, does it look good.

Apart from the pop-off head, I thought Deathsaurus was great. The parts-forming was pretty minor compared to the clusterhug that is WFC Optimus. And adding in the semi-transforming breast plates from the other sets made him really fun. Only other complaint is that the transforming Tiger Breaster's handle blocks Deathsaurus' head in robot mode a bit.

My Deathsaurus didn't have any plastic tolerance problems, but my WFC Prime stressed horribly at the back of the knees. WFC Prime was pretty awful overall.

I got Hot Spot too, and he's awesome, even better than Deathsaurus--mostly transforms, with minor additional parts-forming. The combiner pieces being able to snap onto all modes is great too.

I have Gaia Guardian too, but I've only assembled two bots so far: Blades and Streetwise. So far, looking awesome in all modes and combined as limbs for Hot Spot. And no parts-forming--total transformation for those two. 'Scramble Power' is intact. All arms can become limbs and vice versa. Highly recommend this set so far!
