@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

And with every pic of these Data Disks and their clear plastic cases the more ecstatic I become.
They're just the PERFECT fusion of Recordicons and Bakugan. Even the clear plastic cases fill me with nostalgic joy. The toy store near me in 84-85 imported single versions of the cassettes with their own plastic cases.

I'm very likely to get the Soundblaster repaint and use it as a base for Database, Even can make Mainframe and Hard Drive from Laserbeak and Rumble. Glitch however can't be made since there is no mouse/rat cassette...

Q: scout frenzy/rumble? A: have the mold, but no plans

I just don't understand this, can someone help me too, they made the molds, Takara sold them already they have to want to make money back for making them, why can't they just say Okay this wave will include these guys, and stick them in a future wave?

The Animated molds I can understand better because of their unique look, but not Rumble and Frenzy.

Dead size class+redundant character release=bye-bye non-Japanese release.

Plus as was stated when TakaraTomy released Wingblade Prime, Blackout, and Hydrodive Bumblebee, a Japanese release counts as making their money back on the production costs. Apparently.

And nobody asked about Unicron or the Jet Vehicon? Really? 'Guess they might be Japanese-exclusive after all.

So they already made back what it cost to make them okay, and I did forget that the Scout class was retired although I don't see why a two-pack is completely out of the question. Thanks.

I'm also very surprised nobody asked about Unicron, or that Hasbro themselves didn't mention him.

VOyager Soundwave is just a larger version of Deluxe WFC Soundwave with added gimicks? Also, Laserbeak turns into a wheel?


It's a larger version of the WfC design but a whole new toy. It holds Data Disks and launches them. That's what the Tapes now becoeme - Data Disks. They're spring loaded to pop into bot mode when launched. Sounds like they're doing a bunch (at least 6) of them.

- ZacWilliam, demands they do EVERY G1 Recordicon!

And then make new Recordicons! They look so much better then what I was imagining.

Soundwave and Kickback look great, I'm expecting a lot of people using him to stand in for Prime's Insecticon if they don't make a toy.

Seriously, Firefight and Kickback both appeal to me, but the rest? Skippable. I'm not complaining, mind, and I expect we'll get more reveals soon, but still, right now, not much of this selection is calling to me.
