@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2018 - 11:26 AM)

Yay! I should get my package from BBTS today!

@  Arazyr : (22 January 2018 - 10:50 AM)

Okay, now I get the snake thing. Thanks for the Pokemon reference. It was a bit after my time... 8^)

@  CastletonSnob : (22 January 2018 - 08:05 AM)

This is a Transformers fansite. Do you like big bots and you cannot lie?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 03:32 AM)

no. was just making a silly/stupid joke

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2018 - 03:22 AM)

Onyx is a stone. Onix is a rock snake. Do you even Pokemon, bro?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 02:44 AM)

could be a rock made of snakes. we just dont know!

@  Foffy : (22 January 2018 - 02:15 AM)

He is a snake made of rock, though

@  Jetstream C-18 : (21 January 2018 - 08:56 PM)

No, Onyx is a snake.

@  Arazyr : (21 January 2018 - 01:12 PM)

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2018 - 01:59 AM)

When that happens in Cocoa Beach there's always someone getting out their surfboard.

@  CORVUS : (19 January 2018 - 12:04 AM)

Damn!

@  Telly : (18 January 2018 - 10:29 PM)

holy hug

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 January 2018 - 06:27 PM)

Goddamn look what happened to the Dutch this week.

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

I honestly wasn't too excited about this figure after seeing the in hand pictures, but my mind completely changed when I had him in hands. He is really really nice looking. The orange is very rich and vibrant, the flame decos on his chest can sides are really well done (the little red dots you see on his flames are not paint chips but the little rivets in his car mode).

The spoiler is actually cat in yellow plastic and not painted over yellow. The dark maroon is a really nice sparkle color. The black shins are not caked on like the Battle in Space / Challenge at Cybertron figures are (they left the part of the hinge unpainted). The white looks a lot better in person (though it makes sticking his gun in his hands a little tough at first). Between the elaborate flame detail, his wrist paint, the shins, and all the little maroon details (they even painted his earphones) - they went all out on this figure.

The remolding seems a bit unnecessary (particularly the under the arm hole as most 5mm pegs won't be long enough to fit in and clear the upper part of his arm. The engine tab is pretty neat though and works well with the Target Master Microns.

Figure is super tight too, unlike some Side Burns. Car mode fits together perfectly (unlike some of the earlier releases). I think this figure replaced the Henkei one as my favorite version of the figure.

If you're not sick of this mold I highly recommend him as the paint job and details are really superb on this one.

He'll be the Rodimus Prime to my Challenge at Cybertron Hot Rod.

How are those Targetmasters on that peg? Is there just a bit of grip before you hit the inner powerlinx peg?

Yup, that's how they're staying on. The under arm hole is pretty useless though.

So is that sticker on the packages of this latest United wave indicating they're limited edition turning out to be true? I see places like HLJ are out and even set the toys to discontinued status, but BBTS seems to have a healthy supply in stock. With TF Prime ramping up in Japan, it would make sense they'd scale back the numbers on this specialty line to focus on the new mainline series, but I think Takara usually has no problems with pumping out a good volume of figures in all of their toylines.

Nice!

Although it's still not magenta... (although if it was I suppose with that deco it'd be Rodimus from the few minutes he was scene at the end of TFTM!) So yeah, I'm passing this one up.

But still cool to see photos of it and all the neat remolds.

Well, the fact that it's a Hot Rod mold meant that I'd buy it, and the spectre of being all "limited edition" drove me to get it a LOT sooner than I otherwise would have. It does look pretty sweet, especially with the crisply bordered chest flames and those ridiculous side flames I love.

At this point I've got so many versions of this mold running around... and while I'm all about the Rodimus, even I'd be fine with them giving this mold a break [preferably to make a new one]. But a magenta one first, please.

I'm thinking they were limited in Japan but outside of Asia that might not have been the case (where most of the US retailers suppliers seem to be located). So while places like HLJ, AmiAmi, Hobby Search and the like had a hard time filling orders due to inventory being cut places outside of those areas (the BBTS's and the TFSource's) did not.

I'd still like a magenta one at some point, but this one does a great job of combining Rodimus Prime's robot mode appearance with some toy specific flames. He's really great.

I don't know why, but every time I look at that new peg it just looks tacked on. In an average/poor custom type of way. It just doesn't mesh with the rest of him for me.

It's the kind of thing that is only really noticeable if you're looking for it; that sounds weird but I guess I mean it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb really. I was half expecting it to be a Powerlinx hardpoint, and actually forgot they'd added it until I looked right at it.

Does anyone else think its odd to have a Rodimus Prime repaint of a Hot Rod toy? How would this work in fiction? He doesn't get bigger or gain a new alternate mode when he becomes Rodimus Prime, just a slightly different color scheme?

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.
