Found Infernocus at the local TrU today, he's still TFP Legion Abominus for sure, but metal as hug. Pretty cool for $5 more than a Voyager.

@  Shrug : (23 September 2017 - 07:52 AM)

Your PS3s traded souls.

@  2017 : (23 September 2017 - 07:04 AM)

Oh, odd coincidence, this afternoon my PS3 wasn't turning on. I seem to have fixed it tho.

@  Pennpenn : (23 September 2017 - 06:21 AM)

Oh great, my PS3 stopped reading discs. Brilliant.

@  BlackMax : (22 September 2017 - 08:38 PM)

Nope, that is a keen idea though. My team was Sentinel-Hulk-Haggar, Team Huge.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2017 - 02:17 PM)

Did anyone have a Prime team in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 consisting of Sentinel, Nova and Nemesis?

@  Robowang : (21 September 2017 - 10:06 PM)

Ok, I can't find the "Savage on a Ravage" pic that soneone pisted. Can anyone link me to it?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 12:47 PM)

I'm also sure you don't sparkle like a disco ball, otherwise someone woulda run you over by now.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

anyway I don't die in sunlight, I just get tired.

@  Dracula : (21 September 2017 - 12:40 PM)

correct

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2017 - 11:46 AM)

I'm pretty sure most vampires would cause a gremlin infestation just for the giggles.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2017 - 11:42 AM)

Hmm, a vampire would have a hell of a hard time getting rid of a Gremlin infestation, wouldn't he?

@  OrionPax44 : (21 September 2017 - 11:13 AM)

Well then there's yellowing but isn't that all of them. I like to leave all my TF's in a hot car all day long to let all their joints turn to jelly.

@  Telly : (21 September 2017 - 11:12 AM)

I've had mine for two weeks with no problems. Just don't be a hamfist with it.

@  Telly : (20 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

just ordered tr trypticon. should have it monday :)

@  OrionPax44 : (20 September 2017 - 04:57 PM)

@Robowang I have one somewhere and I can send it to you. Don't worry about it. Just let me find it

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2017 - 04:43 PM)

Sometime last week, I purchased Hasbro Windblade online then a day or two later, Takara Windblade was announced for only £4.99 more making me instantly regret buying Hasbro's Windblade. Guess I'll be giving Hasbro Windblade to my nephew for Christmas then.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:24 PM)

That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

@  BlackMax : (20 September 2017 - 10:04 AM)

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

gads, why is this site so bad at loading at times?

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 September 2017 - 08:29 PM)

Thank you Hasbro for having never reissued the 2011 City Strike Destro figure...already at $32 with a week left.

There's a thought that's been nagging at me, and as Cybertron becomes more and more Transformer-hostile and the lack of sanitation/etc Wheeljack brings up this issue also mounts up it just becomes clearer - what is actually KEEPING anyone here beyond sheer stubborn masochism?

The Autobots were able to fly off to Earth to pick up "King Bee", Prowl & co, and most of the neutrals/"Nails" apparently have functioning ships, after all. Why don't the former fly off to Gorlam Prime or somewhere, and why don't the latter either follow or head back to where they came from?

If there was a vaguely functional infrastructure and - more importantly - a planet that might not kill them all any second (what's even keeping the Iacon area "safe"?) I could understand why they'd choose to stay, or if they all got teleported there without a ship like the Decepticons and had no choice... Well, they'd have to deal. But this seems like one giant pissing contest.

If I recall, the Nails returned in response to a signal that Cybertron sent out. They've been gone so long, all they want is their home back. Sure they have to acclimate to a new world with hostile environments. It would be no different if they collectively relocated to a new world that could sustain them all. If they went back to a previous colony, the balance of power would tip toward whomever ran the colony before they left. If they all separated again, there's no hope of rebuilding their society proper. They are effectively pushing out into the wild, untamed west. They must adapt to survive as a species and as a society.
Reclaim the suffix.

@Somebody:

Another factor I assume is in play (although it hasn't been mentioned yet) is that a renewed Cybertron means a renewed natural source of energon. For the last 500 years (even longer for the NAILs), Cybertronians have been living off of artificial and impure energon derivatives found or made on other worlds. A pure, regenerating source of energon literally growing on trees (or the equivalent), must be a big selling point for staying on Cybertron these days.

Don't underestimate sentiment either.

This is the homeworld. No matter how long they've been away it's still home.


-ZacWilliam, I assume their are "NAILs" without an emotional connection to Cybertron but most of those probably would have just stayed in their distant colonies. The ones that returned are largely those that really care I think. Though I'd LOVE to see more development given to the NAILs to flesh that out.

Yeah, everyone in the comic is people who came to Cybertron specifically because they wanted to live there instead of wherever they already were.

Thanks. Given three mentions of the missing moon in recent comics, I'd wager it's going to be important soon...

Maybe it was secretly Unicron.

"Getting called a crony by Starscream is like...it's like a simile I'd use to describe a less obviously ironic thing."

Possibly the best line I've read in a Transformers story.

You know what's interesting... Peace through tyranny seems to be Stalinism...

While Starscream entering the coalition government seems to be liberal socialism.

While this comic is still miles better of what Costa ever did, I am liking it less and less. Maybe because MTMTE is so much more fun to read, I dunno...

Prowl is becoming more and more off from his Furman/Roche portrayal. He is giving in to his emotions a lot of times, and straight-out considers the Cons 'animals'. Not to mention he is a pathetic liar... I had to laugh, so he expects people to believe that Ratbat got so depressed, he chopped his wing and legs off and nailed himself to a wall? icon-fire.gif Seriously? Not to mention that the super-smart guy suddenly lost ALL forms of tact, and constantly keeps calling the neutrals 'NAILS' even though he knows well he only angers them that way. I like my Prowl more calculating and smart. This guy is a sarcastic police detective, not a high-ranking string-pulling magnificient bastard.

Arcee is still a psycho, which is... odd, considering (s)he only had a grudge against Jhiaxus and was pretty normal in HoD.

Silverbolt and the Aerialbots suddenly pull a turn straight out of Marvel G1, stealing Grimlock's act (seriously, where ARE the dinobots?) and marching off angrily. Barrel-Roll had "hi-then-die" written on him from the get-go, anyway.

I did enjoy the parts with Wheeljack, though.

My problem with the new comics is, I like to read about Decepticons as much as Autobots, and they are pretty much all in RID (unless you count Tailgate and Cyclonus). And I don't like how this writer handles them.

Ugh, I can't seem to find this issue anywhere despite it coming out almost three weeks ago. A retailer told me that it hasn't come out here in Canada yet, but that just sounds odd. =/
