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.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

All the jazz about cassettes lately got me in the mood to whip up some templates. So first off, the Eject/Rewind model. The picture is reduced quite a lot to fit them altogether mind,

Rewind and Eject of course, with Bolts, the canned character from an early script of the '86 movie. I rather like the colors I picked out for him icon-hotrod.gif

Also did a modified version for the girls, Flip-Sides and Rosanna.

A number of my OCs use the model as well but I figured I'd only post the official characters here. And Bolts.


Working on the Rumble/Frenzy model atm, including a female version.

(edit!) added cassette forms
(edit2) added Decepticons in lower post

I think I would prefer Takara repaint the Rumble mold into Bolts rather than the Eject mold. Solely because the Eject mold has four different characters to it already while the Rumble mold only has three. The script doesn't specify it being the Eject mold, only that it was humanoid. Plus I think it would be interesting to see an Autobot repaint of Rumble.

Well I think that in all likely hood that this model is what Hasbro was gonna use for whatever humanoid bot they ended up choosing, so Bolts fits nice enough into it for me icon-hotrod.gif

I just want more. I've always loved the cassettes.

I would love them to reissue the remaining 8 soon just so we could get some "other character" variations.

Of course I've already said elswhere that I'd love it if someone made more G1 style cassettes. Not modernized. Not fully poseable. Not updated in any way. Just exactly the style and level of the classic G1 cassettes but new characters. I would love expanded armies.


-ZacWilliam, I know it won't happen, but they're just cool.

Yeah. I know that originally they would have likely used the Eject mold for Bolts if the early script became the actual movie script.

I was saying that if Takara wanted to do more cassette repaints, they should use the Rumble mold for Bolts so that the number of different characters using each mold are even.

Its for that reason I don't want them to do more Ravage and Laserbeak repaints since there are four charactes for each of those molds too.

Instead I want them to repaint Rumble, Ratbat, Slugfest, Overkill, Ramhorn and Steeljaw up to four different characters per mold.

But this is just me putting my personal ideas into words. Your color scheme for Bolts does look good.

Ah ok icon-hotrod.gif

I do have a bunch of OC Autobots who use the Rumble model, I didn't wanna bore everyone with them as I have so many OC cassettebots.

Here is the Rumble model I've worked up. Enemy, Frenzy, Rumble, and Eraser. Eraser is one of my OCs, shown here mostly just to show off the female model I made. She is based off of the orange generic cassettebot seen in the background of some scenes in the early episodes of the cartoon.

So they made Wingthing a cassette, which made me ponder what would happen if they did the same for Blaster's AM partner, Flight Pack.

I did first think Raindance would be suitable, but he was already mostly blue, so I went with Laserbeak. A quick trace over of some Laserbeak art and here it is. Not the most flattering, I think I'll change the weapon/jet packs to black maybe

I think Raindance would ultimately be a better choice , I might whip one up anyway

There's always Sqawktalk too.


ZacWilliam, though then you just need to think up an Autobot Gorrilla

Yeah, I was thinking Squawktalk for Sights instead of Laserbeak.

And am Autobot repaint for Beastbox doesn't have to originally be a gorilla, just someone who would make sense with a new gorilla alternate mode.

Or lets use Ape-Linq and be done with it.

Possibly Glitch? I mean, both have the standard humanoid shape of two arms, two legs, and a head. And the legs are smaller than the arms.

That was another reason I wanted to steer away from Raindance, because it meant a combiner. That said Glitch as a Beastbox recolor doesn't sound too bad...
