When that happens in Cocoa Beach there's always someone getting out their surfboard.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand brick and mortar.

@  siccoyote : (18 January 2018 - 04:31 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 January 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Rent a space and do a webcast?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

They could just do a panel at RI ComicCon or something.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 01:21 PM)

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

I just happened back across this list by chance, and I... I think I might know what *these* are...

TRA HERO MASHERS SHOCKWAVE A8400
TRA HERO MASHERS SLAG A8399
TRA HERO MASHERS SPRINGER A8401
TRA HERO MASHERS STARSCREAM A8404

 

 

See over in the Marvel Toy thread we've been discussing some new Marvel toys that came out of nowhere at TRU: "Marvel Super Hero Mashers" (which are erroneously on TRU's website as Marvel Super Hero "Makers" just like the Slug error listed here)

 

You can see examples of the Marvel ones here:

 

http://thefwoosh.com...hp?f=96&t=90671

 

 

How this style will work exactly for Transformers... shrug. Will they TF? Will they be in the stylized-animated look of the Marvel stuff? Will they be interchangeable parts wise with the Marvel ones? Shrug...

 

 

-ZacWilliam, wants to get some of the Marvel ones for my son. They look fun.

That seems REALLY odd with Constructbots already being a thing.

 

I'll take it anyway, though.  More ways of building custom bots can only be a good thing.

 

Plus, for people who don't like the aesthetic of Construct-A-Bots, maybe this will be a bit more up their alley.


Interested in getting TFSS 3.0 Carzap, Nacelle, or G2 Starscream for $50 plus shipping?  PM me if so.

It does seem like an unusual play pattern to apply to Transformers, although the brand is certainly no stranger to non-converting merch. Plus who are we kidding, it's an unusual play pattern to begin with. Guess someone at the company REALLY liked making the Assemblers.

That's a pretty big assortment, though. Yay, a Rodimus!

I am looking forward to Roadbuster (hopefully IDW or G1) Brainstorm, (IDW or G1) and Arcee (IDW or G1 also).  With Roadbuster and Whirl both getting new toys, we need the Transformers Club to do a remold/retool of FOC Whirl as Rotorstorm.  We already have  a replacement for one of the combining Wreckers in the form of Ironfist.

 

P.S. - Where is my new Rodimus?  I mean, Bumblebee gets three new toys based on his IDW forms and Hot Rod needs an update.

Well from Hasbro's standpoint the retooling isn't so much the issue (Hellooooo Sandstorm) as Rotorstorm also being a blue helicopter.

Just do the mostly-pale-blue LSotW colours - which, ironically, are close to classic Whirl, while FoC-toy Whirl's colours are closer to toy-Rotorstorm!
(Notwithstanding the head, you could pretty much cobble together toy-Rotorstorm colours from the parts of SDCC Vortex, retail Vortex and Whirl!)

(Yes, Walky, I know the palette for LSotW was deliberately pastel-ish. I'm deliberately ignoring that.)

They should just make a toy of the Aligned Rotorstorm seen in the Covenant. It's pretty much as Rotorstorm-y a design can get.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Having not seen it, I was going to ask if it was in fact just Rotorstorm's toy, because...that would obviously be as Rotorstorm-y as you could get.

You guys know you're talking about two different Whirl molds here, right? :p

 

Exillion was talking about FOC Whirl--the Vortex remold that has perfectly serviceable hands and feet for a Rotorstorm, unlike the upcoming Voyager Whirl which was confused with it... until Somebody brought things back to the beginning with no apparent recognition that they'd strayed. :D

It is always fun to see how threads go in different directions only to come back around again.

So the consensus is we need Rotorstorm?
