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

That is a very 2017 attitude to have.

Um...no. Just call them by the gender they present as, please.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 07:35 AM)

Let's please not try to stir up a flame war in the shoutbox, especially not over sensitive issues like gender.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

He is mistransformed. His stomach, at least. According to the images of him from BotCon, the sides of his abs fold back.

Also, that prod of his totally looks like the Scorpion-guy that Takara's Soundwave comes with.

Looks like his fenders need to tilt back further on his shouders, his "belt" needs to fold around his waist, and his windows need to fold down on his arms. Looks pretty good now, and I think he'll look great when properly transformed.

Boy - with a very little bit of paint that head could be turned into a pretty decent Terrorsaur.

And aren't his wheels supposed to be up higher by his shoulders too?

Love that he comes with that cattle prod spear thing. I definitely didn't think he would, especially since I believe he only used it once on the show.

Boy are they're going to be any surprises as Toyfair this year? I mean we've seen a mockup of him before but they're revealing all the goods before I get there. icon-fire.gif

The surprises will be seeing the toys unphotoshopped and under normal lighting, and hopefully not mistransformed. icon-waspy.gif

Yeah, but they may end up being hand painted samples that are not indicative of the final product (like silver eared Universe Sunstreaker or black faced Alternator Silverstreak). icon-fire.gif

So he's actually not that much mistransformed. Just fold back the stomach pieces and straighten his chest kibble.

Ouch. I was at least hoping that the windows folded over the forearms to help with that area of nothingness on the inside of the arms. And that the hood torso did...something to make that look less goofy.

Looks decent otherwise, face looks fantastic!

Takara Soundwave has a circular, multi-pronged weapon-mode Minicon.

This here has a u-shaped prod at the end of it. the Micron Booster snake looks more like Knockout's weapon than the scorpion does, which is based off of Soundwave's tentacle.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
