@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 April 2017 - 08:16 PM)

I thought of something else about TFW2005 versus the Allspark. If Ignash was allowed back here, wouldn't that initiate lots of frustration and/or abandonment by people here?

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]†This eye is derived from the primary†naupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

@  Whirl Maximus : (29 April 2017 - 11:09 AM)

I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

@  Bass X0 : (29 April 2017 - 09:57 AM)

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

I just can't understand this. They have actively worsened the appearance of the figures by actively cutting corners in order to create new add-on features as a universal gimmick that ISN'T PART OF THE FICTION. WHAT.

EDIT: Hang on - just read this somewhere else, hadn't realised it before - these Mini-Cons are coming unpainted and unassembled? Still on SPRUES?

It's actually pretty easy to understand when you look at the price tag. These things cost about 1/3rd less than prior toys of the same size-class.

Well, if the sudden reduction in mass, size, and complexity for the Prime line was actually a Takara initiative, I guess we know where Hasbro got this influx of profit to pay for 40 Generations toys...

I don't know about that first part, as all the pictures show them painted metallic colors - unless they're just cast in them instead.

Looks like they're cast in the same kind of pearlescent semi-metallic plastic as Japanese FE Bulkhead (and two of the most recent Arms Micron giveaways), with all the rest of their color coming from stickers and their clear plug-in symbol plates. I don't think they've even got painted faces.

I'd really like to know what led them to think that step 1 would lead to step 3.

Well, I guess for Japanese kids, these won't have to "compete" with Hasbro's releases.

By the way, why did they have to put all those bumps there anyway? Couldn't they have simply put peg holes on the vehicle parts without making those ugly bumps? Would still look distracting, but not as bad.
