Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

For now, this is announced as a Universal Studios Singapore exclusive.
He'll probably be available at Universal Studios Hollywood later though.

At NYCC Hasbro said there was going to be a mass release version too with different packaging and (likely) colors from the Universal Studios version.

He looks like a decent design, if not just a little generic. I'd like to see some kind of neat homage done with him. Sorry to the homage haters, but you've already got your new character version coming out right here. icon-fire.gif

So is this what the ride vehicle will look like? The four seats and open top make think so.

Cool design, looking forward to seeing a finished copy.

I'm still curious why Singapore gets the ride first. I've no doubt the toy will be available in all Universal parks when we get the ride here. Hasbro said there would be a wide release of this? That surprises too given that it's a theme park ride exclusive.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Perhaps they were able to make room for it first. Or perhaps Universal Studios Singapore needed a boost.

I'm so very tempted to buy one just to put some white on the vehicle mode.

It looks like he cribs a lot of robot design from Roadbuster. The split hood-pecs, the shoulder and hip wheels, the girder-legs... even has the kneepads and "wings" on the inside of the ankle.

I'd wager he even transforms much the same way as the Roadbuster deluxe figure. Not much originality there, IMO. It's not a terrible thing, as I really liked Roadbuster's design. Could have stood for it being less obvious though... nix the girders in the shins or something.

Yes, but they said the packaging would be different and like the figure too (coloration / deco). This was from the Hasbro reps at NYCC 2011.

That's what is selling him to me.

I have a general dislike for the Movie robot aesthetic, but his being basically a transforming Universal Studios Themepark ride sells me the toy just for the uniqueness.


-ZacWilliam, same factor that sold me the little Transforming toaster guy. When is it ever gonna happen again?

Well that's certainly a Transformer in the movie style. An actual paint job will probably make him look a little better. And clearer pictures.

If they do a mass release, I'll probably get him. He looks neat enough to be background filler.

The only thing I don't like about this guy is his name. Yeah, it makes sense regarding his role in the ride, but Evac already exists as a movieverse character and looks nothing like this. And yes, I'm aware that a 2-time repaint character that didn't appear in the films themselves is of secondary concern to coming up with a character that's the audience's link to the interactive movie ride, but still, some continuity would be appreciated. Like, he could have been "Getaway"/Breakaway.

Anyway, he's still looking pretty cool, and I totally agree with the Wreckers comparison; it's like he's the fourth one (Twin Twist?). Also, I think I've decided his alt mode is cybertronian. I could buy into it being a stealth mode of an Earth car, but the overall look is futuristic enough to be cybertronian.
