Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

Can we not make this thread - with questions pertaining the series at its start - into another moaning fest about how ME3 failed to reach some peoples expectations before we scare the poor player that wants to play through the trilogy?

Besides, ME3 was never a bad game. And any issues I personally had with it were washed away with the Extended Cut - which is a free download, by the by.


Just to get it of my chest, no, ME3 did not have one flaw that was solved by the EC. The entire thing is a mess from beginning to end, and very obviously rushed.

Saying that, I do agree that it's a good game.

Specifically, its a brilliant TPS, absolutely wonderful fun to play, and an amazingly good multiplayer, topped off with some light RPG elements. It has some amazingly good characters, stand out missions, and arguably the best part of the entire trilogy with the Tuchanka arc.

However, in the context of being a Mass Effect game, it's an utter failure, that strips out fundamentals game mechanics, takes away player agency almost entirely, and ignores or negates the vast majority of all the important choices and storylines from the far superior first 2 games, railroading most of what is still there into inanity that still doesn't matter when you get to the incredibly badly written endings that are totally divorced from anything else even within ME3 itself.

But that honestly isn't what I've been thinking this evening.

What I've been thinking is about how lucky this guy is, because he's about to experience Mass Effect for the first time!

Seriously think about that! Experiencing Noveria, Virmia, Ilos and what comes after, meeting Garrus, Tali, Wrex, Liara, Anderson and the rest for the first time!

And then still having 2 to experience! Shepard's dirty dozen, impossible odds, not knowing who if anyone will survive, Aria and the one rule of Omega, all those great recruitment and loyalty missions, rescuing Archangel, helping to cure a plague in the slums of the sleaziest space station in the universe, racing to reach an assassin, helping a warrior monk kill drug dealers, playing James Bond with a master thief, meeting Jack, birthing Grunt, thawing Miranda, the Machiavellian awesomeness of TIM, uncovering the truth of Project Overlord, the Suicide Mission!

I seriously envy you Caldwin, and wish I was in your shoes right now, jivey ending to it all or not.

Really, forget 3, its still mostly fun, even if it doesn't deserve to be part of the same series, but gods, you're in for one amazingly incredible ride getting there.

Fair enough, certainly on purely shooting mechanics, enemy AI and the dodgy A/X does everything control mechanics, its nothing special, but I would argue the really excellent and well refined powers tip it into great territory. The very fact that you can go the standard TPS walking armoury route with the Soldier, then need hardly ever fire a shot with the Vanguard deserves some credit at least.

The loss of the RPG elements was unforgivable though, I agree. The treatment and neutering of the dialogue wheel alone was an act of pure vandalism.

GETTING BACK ON TOPIC

Regarding ME1, not sure how far you are into it yet, but I know some people found the initial bit on the Citadel oppressive simply because you are there for a extended period of time if you take the time to do the side missions. Don't let it discourage you and remember that you will get off of it eventually and then the game cranks things into overdrive.

Also, while the elevator rides/loading screens may wear thin after about the second time you do it, it is worth your while to visit the bulk of your crew below decks. Their dialogues are fantastic and really flesh out the characters and you get to know them far better.

Right now I am at the citidal, trying to figure out why one business partner wants to kill the other. One of them gave me some sort of scanner. I get the feeling I could easily get lost, forgetting what my next story objective actually is.

Never fear on that front. Mass Effect has one of the most friendly "Journal" systems in the game, ensuring you'll never be lost with what you have to do or how to get to your next objective.

But I remember that quest you're doing. The scanner is for scanning the Keepers. I highly recommend you take a look at a online guide to tag them all, as despite multiple playthroughs even my wife has difficulty remembering where they all are.

Although, if you really find them tedious, you can also skip the side missions and use the rapid transport system instead.

It misses out on a lot of interesting stuff, but it won't come back to bite you either.

Really though, do everything, talk to everyone you meet, speak to the crew after every mission, and just immerse yourself in it all. It makes the end game, when things really get kicked into top gear, so much more fun.

Also, when the game opens up and you get the choice of Noveria, Feros and Therum, I'd recommend going to Therum first, since you get your final squadmate, who is an absolute beast in fights, and more game content that way.

You do get some funny scenes if you do it last mind, but its really better to get it done first.

All I'll say on that matter is don't do Noveria first. That was what I did and it just made the narrative a touch awkward afterward. It still carries on fine, but it doesn't "feel" right.

Just picked up Liara. I'm finding this rather addictive. I should've been in bed an hour ago. I'm really liking this. It has a very interesting balance between battle and role playing. I don't know why, but I was kinda expecting Shepard to be a bitter, war batterd veteren with a chip on his/her shoulder. Turns out you can make him/her as bitter or as nice as you want...which kinda makes the game as a whole as dark or as light as you want. This...isn't quite what I expected. It's several times better really. Really loving it so far.

Y'know, I'm playing through ME2 and I'm up to the bit where you first meet Kaiden again, and I'll admit to not using him at all in ME1 (with the obvious exceptions) but was he always so bloody petulant? Seriously, the only human squaddie I've met so far that I haven't wanted to leave on Citadel or flush out an airlock as soon as certain parties aren't looking is Jacob. And even he's a bit painful to listen to in combat.

It makes it kind of weird that certain human-centric groups would want me to help them when I made it abundantly clear in ME1 that my Shepard is a total xenophile who wouldn't bat an eyelid selling them out?

In fairness to the humans, there are loads of cool well written ones, its just a shame almost none end up as squadmates.

Anderson, Joker, Adams, Dr Chakwas, Dr Michel, Gianna Parasini, Emily Wong, Kelly Chambers, Ken and Gabby, Mess Sargent Gardner, Steve Cortez, Samantha Trayner, they're all brilliant, and likeable, you just don't really get to run around and shoot stuff with them.

Kasumi is properly great though, Zaeed, once you hit him a few times, is an entertaining character and Miranda just needs enough time and effort put in to open up and be a bit less bitchy. Jacob and Vega suffer from being basically just boring, with Jacob also having a slight problem in that deep down, under the polite professionalism, he's an arsehole.

Ashley and Kaiden are kind of Marmite characters. Since they're designed to be one another's counterparts personality wise, most people only seem to like one or the other, or just find Kaiden boring since he's the calm, quiet, thoughtful one. In ME 2 both are brought down by being written by Mac Walters in one of the only parts of the game where he wasn't following Drew Karpyshyn's plot outline. They're kind of dumb and petulant because the plot called for it, rather than because it made sense. Frankly Shepard doesn't come off much better on that front in those scenes either, and is very much holding the idiot ball too.

Yeah, that's one of the boons of the series - you directly control the kind of story you want to tell. It can be more or less Star Wars-esque upbeat, or it can be dirty and grim like the new BSG.

Also your Shepard can fall anywhere between the Optimus Prime and Rambo when it comes to morality. He can be the noble idealist, or the pragmatic anti-hero. You're never evil, it's just a choice between taking the high road and getting the job done.

That's not to say the Paragon Shepard doesn't have a lot of kickass moments in the game, but don't feel you absolutely *must* choose to be full Paragon or Full Renegade. The experience, I find, is vastly richer if you mix things up a bit - especially from ME2 on when the cutscenes introduce Quick Time Events for Paragon or Renegade response.

Yeah, starting to see that. Just played the Tali mission in ME2 and after it couldn't believe he just up and told Tali to HIGHLIGHT to view:
introduce herself to the ship's AI. Because, y'know, a Quarian would be totally cool talking to an AI. On a Cerberus ship. I'm quite impressed that they managed to imply a death glare through an opaque faceplate.

I almost didn't bother with Miranda's loyalty mission (still gonna try and get her killed if possible) since when prompted for it the game's designers inexplicably thought that the best thing to show on screen during the choice was Miranda's ass taking up 90% of the screen.

I just had to make a sadistic choice of which crew member to save. I'm not sure if that tells you how far I am in the game, cause I seem to be able to do whatever whenever I want. But I will say that the past two missions I've been on have had some 'holy crap' moments.

One I had to try to not shoot colonists by using gas grenades...problem being I couldn't remember how to throw grenades...and once I did figure it out, I ran out of grenades in short order. So...yeah...by the end of it all only three of the infected colonists survived. I think my renegade level went up there a tad. icon-wildride.gif

Then of course there was that sadistic choice. In the interest of keeping it as spoiler free as possible, I'll try and be as vague as possible. Either I save the a person up in the tower or the one next to a bomb. Truly gutwrenching. HIGHLIGHT to view:
I saved Ashley though I really had to feel sorry for Kaidan. He had such a crush on Shepard. Also, romance seems to be blossoming between Shepard and Liara. Going to have to remember to save to a seperate file right before that scene.

BTW...I've seen an anime of Mass Effect at Best Buy. I kinda want to get it...cause with the ever shrinking shelf space anime seems to be getting at Best Buy, I may not have the oppurtunity for long.

But I just wanted to ask first if anyone's seen it? Is it worth getting? Will it spoil the games if I watch it before I'm finished? At what point is it safe to watch it?

There's a critical event at the very beginning of Mass Effect 2 that it spoils. So, I might wait until then. The plot centers around a character introduced in Mass Effect 3, an event that he references in-game. But honestly, it doesn't really spoil anything. Its story is totally separate from the games, so you'll be fine if you watch it a couple of hours into the second game. That's right around the time that it all takes place.

It's decent. I'm not really interested in anime, so my assessment of it probably means very little. It pretty much has most of the anime staples, but with Mass Effect flavoring. If that's your thing, or if you're just a huge fan and must devour all things Mass Effect, then go for it!

This is a fun little read, it's nice to see through the eyes of someone experiencing it all for the first time. There are definitely some hard choices, and there are more ahead.

Thanks. I'll probably buy it next time I see it and just wait until I'm into ME2 before watching it. I have a pretty good feeling about this game. Some games you can kinda tell that you're probably not going to finish it. Others you just know you'll have to finish them if it's the last thing you ever do.

So far this game has me completely hooked. Barring some brick wall that I can not get past, I will finish this. So I can't wait to see that anime (I'm a huge anime fan).

And speaking of brick walls, I'm suprised how I haven't really run into any yet. I thought I was about to on a couple Mako drives. But then I realised...I don't have to kill everything. I could just speed right passed some of these enemies and repair when I reach a safe spot. Saved on the frustration. And there's no shortage of barriers to hide behind while I'm on foot. So I have yet to get frustrated by this game.
