To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

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.

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.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

Okay, being the type that jumps the gun, I figured I'd ask. We are getting an awesome looing FoC Bruticus, if Hasbro makes a SECOND combiner in this style (all Deluxes), what should the next one be?

I'm limiting the responses to G1 US released combiners, since that seems to be what WFC/FoC seems to be based on (not likely they will make Landcross or Rail Racer or whatever).

Im guessing since we already seen Silverbolt and Air Raid in the first game, Im leaning towards Superion if Bruticus sells well. Even out the odds for more Autobot combiners.

Uniform color schemes and all being the same theme of vehicle (especially both together) probably wouldn't happen. Which would cross several well known and popular teams off the list.

This seems a bit premature.

"Disabled people donít 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 isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Defensor. I have a nice classics Bruticus and this one might make the second. I have a fairly nice classics Superion and a very nice classics Devastator (and I'll probably get another of those). It is definitely Defensor's turn.

I doubt there will be one.

That said I'd love it if there were. My order goes:

1) Aerialbots - Always my favorite as a kid from the first appearence in the toon and the first time I saw the toys. I love little jet toys that you can take with you and fly everywhere. Sky Dive is one of my favorite characters and designs. Silverbolt and Slingshot are memorable and important G1 characters. This would be my dream so it's what I voted. Problem is I'd REALLY prefer them in their Earth forms. The G1 Aerialbot robot design is just a classic to me in the same way the Seeker or Prowl body is. I want it as spot on to the old model sheets as possible. So yeah, maybe in a future sequel set on Earth?

2) Terrorcons - These little Monsters just have some great, quirky, anime looking designs and colors. Abominous too. They really appeal to my sense of aesthetics.

3) Technobots - My second favorite team behind the Aerialbots all together. Just really liked them as a kid. And anything that gets me a new Lightspeed (I like him, sue me) is awesome.

4) Predacons - For Predaking, Divebomb, and Razorclaw. All awesome.

5) Protectobots - This is mostly for First Aid, who was the stand out on this team for me. Though I do like Defensor.


I'll be honest the Stunticons and Constructicons are a bit boring to me. Don't know why, I don't hate them but neather team has the nostalgic love in my heart that the above do. Constructicons just feel over done to me. Combaticons do a bit too, but if they're what we're getting it's fine with me just because it's getting someone.


-ZacWilliam, forgot the Seacons. Make them #6. I like Seawing. icon-hotrod.gif

You could get away with 3 molds for Superion with the armbots just having different heads and colors, same with the legs. Problem is releasing 5 jets at once.

Could Aerialbots share designs with Seekers?

Defensor makes the most sense. Like Bruticus, his individual bots all have much more varied Alt modes. So it would be easier to justify having all five of them in the deluxe price-point.

I'd personally WANT Menasor. But, since he's mostly cars, I doubt it. Unless of course, he's in the third game. lol

I voted Defensor, as he really needs some combiner love. It wouldn't happen though, because they only ever make Devastator, Superion & Bruticus, out of the G1 guys.

Share with the Seekers?

Not if I have anything to say about it. I want Aerialbots with the classic Nosecone-Tail backpacks and wings on their feet. I know I'm being G1erish about this but I just love that Classic design and want to see it in a new toy form so much.

I will say though, that while I'd love to see them done as Combiners again, Superion is actually the least part of my desire for them. The original was a bit of a gangly, flimsy mess. I would be just as happy with a non-combing Deluxe mold based on the Scramble City design that could get new Heads, Wings and Tails and be released in a number of seperate waves as Air Raid, Sky Dive and Fireflight. Then another mold for the more different Slingshot (or Airrazor or whatever they have to call him).

Since FoC is 8 figures and Jazz, Shockwave, and Prime are covered, the combaticons would eat up the other 5 spots if they were counted.

As others have said, with the focus on Grimlock and previous mentions of a figure coming, the combaticons have to count separately. Because of this, they are likely to be released in some kind of multipack.

With 5 spots to go and a box set category that doesn't count - I could imagine another box set or a individual figures covering 5 deluxe Dinobots.

I'm guessing the dinobots wouldn't combine though.

------------

If we're talking in general - I REALLY want Piranacon. I love sea creature transformers for some odd reason. I have a shelf of just sea creatures.

Because every not-G1 Combiner was done in G1 and brings along with it that OMG G1 update factor. Seriously. Build King = Devastator, Rail Racer = Raiden (OH YES PLEASE), Magnaboss/Tripredacus = Predaking/Dinoking, Baldigus = umm, yeah. Which would you rather have an update of?
