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)

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

@  Noideaforaname : (24 September 2017 - 11:47 PM)

I kinda want to post in that "Win TLK on Blu-Ray" thread, but I don't want to actually win...

well TS to the toy gods. Website went back up, and I ordered it anyway. Wasn't even for me, it was for my brother...

@  Telly : (24 September 2017 - 05:50 PM)

its the toy gods telling you that you dont need whatever it was you were gonna order

@  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.

@  Msol : (24 September 2017 - 02:35 PM)

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.

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.

@  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.

don't get any water on your trypticon, and don't feed him after midnight.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2017 - 10:42 AM)

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

@  Paladin : (21 September 2017 - 08:36 AM)

@  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.

Whatever. Just goes to show I won't be posting over there.

I'll go ahead and say I didn't mind the review. I gave him a small positive comment and said something about him posting it the same week as Botcon. Really until you guys started going off on how he like the Bay film I didn't mind the small amount of Bay bashing he did here. Either way I didn't mind the review. As a casual fan as he stated before I can see him having a slightly more positive spin on G1 than some of us have who have nitpicked the series till the cons come home. I'd actually would have preferred him doing this as himself instead of the costume really but it was fun to see him try. This wasn't one of Doug's best efforts by far but I'm not expecting top quality when it comes to any of the Nostalgia Critics reviews.

The biggest issue I have with the review is that it wasn't funny. I watch this guy for the laughs. I expect him to tear things apart, even things i love. This review wasn't funny and was quite boring. That runs counter to what I expect from him so yeah, I'm gonna voice a very negative opinion. I want him to bash it because that's where his brand of funny is to be found.

I did like the bit with Soundwave detailing his dreams and plans; mainly because that and the cutting back and forth to Megatron listening just reminded me of Space Ghost...

It was a mildly funny joke that dragged on far too long.
"'[Foreigners] at least need to be able to speak proper German.' Okay, what the hell is that supposed to be? Proper German'? Where do they speak that? Have you ever been there? Are you German? Can you engage in a conversation in a Swabian pub? Most people from Cologne already fail at asking for directions in the Eifel region."

from the many animation error-produced seekers (what is the fan-name of the light purple guy?)

Eh? Those weren't errors. The generic seekers were intentionally there, as you can see in the script.
The lack of their appearance on Earth in part 1 (they were even supposed to be seen getting out of the Ark) and after part 3, those are certainly errors.
And miscolored generic seeker that spotted Wheeljack and Bumblebee.


I meant them being on Earth, not on Cybertron. Even as a kid I always wondered about that... and how Reflector could sometimes have 5 or more components. icon-fire.gif

As for Soundwave, sadly all he did was being Megatron's yes-man. And Shockwave was the same, sans the cool voice. icon-hotrod.gif

No, I think Shockwave had one of the best voices in all the G1 cartoon.

Easily the best voice out of all of Corey Burton's characters. I love it! When you get older and realize how much Frank Welker did, he gets easy to pick out on Transformers. Corey Burton, not so much!

Really? I met a LOT of people (not TF fans) who told me they always thought Shockwave sounded... totally gay.

I would have preferred if Burton used his Brainiac voice for Shockwave. I later learned he was going for a David Warner impression, but IMHO he only got that right for Animated Shockwave.

Ever seen Tron? For some reason, he chose to mimic Warner's being-tortured/in-pain voice.

Indeed. IMHO he's the best Megatron voice. I was never that fond of Welker, and David Kaye is suited for a totally different, mastermind Megatron that BW Megs is. I had hoped Hasbro would use him on Prime as well, but nostalgia factor won.

Yeah. This was bad. And I LIKE TNC. He and TAVN are the only internet celebrities I find humorous. Couldn't make it past the introduction.

The decision to do the review "in-character" was the deatblow before all the praising of G1 and bashing of Bay. The terrible Peter Cullen impression resurrected the video just so it could die a second time.

At least it isn't Linkara. Linkara is like watching Dr. Laurence Erhardt without a Clayton Forrester to reel in his obnoxiousness.

I've noticed a distinct lack of quality from all the TGWTG reviewers as of late. I worry if as a group they aren't getting more focused on attending conventions and riding the wave of their success rather then maintain the quality of their output. I've noticed a lot more "From Convention" videos from Doug of late.

You'd think they'd make more of an effort with the way their ad revenue money isn't as constant as it once was.
