@  Telly : (26 September 2017 - 11:20 AM)

the chest drawer on my tripty is fine. nice and tight even with full tilt clinging on

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:14 PM)

Mine seemed to ahve teh slight door warping too but it's not bad enough that Full-Tilt's weight pulls it open, so I haven't bothered with chest screws yet

@  Dekafox : (25 September 2017 - 10:13 PM)

I did the hip compression too when I got mine earlier today. It was hard to tell when I did it enough(and the end of the spring still hurt a bit after a bit of doing it) but seemed to work fine. Also seemed very tail-heavy when I worked on getting him to stand angled instead of upright

@  BlackMax : (25 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

@Tm_ You can be a dude on a TF message board, that's not half bad.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2017 - 08:02 PM)

Oh hey, today's the anniversary of our universe, Quadwal -3760.925 Theta!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 05:06 PM)

Thats good.. I can't do those kinda of fixes... can't do anything really.

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 03:52 PM)

one of his legs was tight so i had to do the fix. hes all better now

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 September 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Why are you doing surgery to Tripty?

@  Telly : (25 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

got my trypticon. currently doing surgery on him. so nertz to you paladin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:35 AM)

Sad to say, I'll likely be picking up The Last Knight this week. If nothing else, it should look fantastic on 4K Blu-Ray, and my 4K OLED is still new enough I'm willing to watch things I hate if they look stunning

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Yeah, I picked it up last time when it got the 3-D conversion re-release treatment

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2017 - 12:57 AM)

To be honest I think I'd rather a copy of The Lion King over a copy of The Last Knight, and I already own a copy of the Lion King on bluray...

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 September 2017 - 12:36 AM)

I spent some time looking for a thread about The Lion King before I figured out the movie you actually meant

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Arrrg! Just as I was about to make my first purchase from BBTS in years: their website up and dies on me.

Picked up Slugslinger. Awesome figure except for some unfortunate mold degradation. His fists are so loose and held just by friction. Hopefully they don't start falling out randomly.

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.

@  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.

Voyager Swoop is good because it means maybe they will do OTHER Dinobots as Voyagers!

If it is the Dinobot, I don't think Voyager is good fit for Swoop, who is supposed to be the small and fragile one of the group.

Swoop may be the smallest of the Dinobots, but even the smallest of the Dinobots is at least as tall as your tallest normal Autobot.

Besides which, his wings will take up some mass.

I want a MTMTE style Swerve a bit more than a Swoop, but there's no Prime remold that would get us him and a Voyager would be an ill match even if it were a new mold.

Well, no one's a bad mode for Aligned Swerve since we have no idea what he's like yet. I was just saying that I would be interested in a mold that can pass for G1 MTMTE Swerve and Prime Breakdown is a terrible choice for that.


-ZacWilliam, no, there's no reason an Aligned Swerve should resemble the MtMtE design, but I wish it would is all. icon-hotrod.gif

At any rate, we are already getting a proper Classics Swerve from Generations Kup. My money is on a Bulkhead repaint for this one.

There'll be a Classics one from Generation Kup (new head) for the Asian Market this year. We have seen the head-mold on Kup's instructions before, and a pickup truck is a good alt. mode for Swerve IMHO. That said, I'd love an MTMTE-styled one too, he is just adorable.

Kup doesn't do it for me as Swerve at all either. I have a connection to Swerve in two ways: The tiny stout minibot toy I've had since I was a kid, and the tiny stout minibot with the big personality from MtMtE. Any Swerve that's not tiny stout and cute just completely misses all the nostalgia/love I have for the character.


-ZacWilliam, the Kup mold NEEDS to be done as Electro anyway. That's its perfect match.

Dang, I was REALLY hoping for Swoop.

Well, I still assume that the FoC line will contain Grimlock. He's getting a HUGE push in the marketing, it seems, just like Bruticus, and a Bruticus configuration for his component bots has been confirmed.
