Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

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.

I think the RTS Jazz mold is one of the best modern molds ever... As Jazz. But it's not what I would really want for Nightbeat cause it just isn't much like his original self at all and I love 80s Furman Nightbeat. It just looks like Jazz painted like Nightbeat.

And Jhiaxus ehhh... The new head looks like it would help a lot but again It's a homage to the G2 guy I am interested in and this seems too far off mark there. G2 colors would be better but even then...


I'm gonna hope these are fake. If they aren't I might still get NB and might pass on Jhiaxus.


-ZacWilliam, mostly if real I'd just be disappointed with Hasbro if this was what they brought to the table for the thrilling 30th. Doing characters long requested = Good. Doing them as marginally inappropriate repaints= more likely to cheese fans off than make them happy. And they should know that.

Armada Starscream isn't "wrong" for Jhiaxus. In the past he looked like an immensely bulked up Seeker-esq design, and then he was Storm Jet/Jet Storm, and then in IDW he was suddenly evocative Movie Protoform Starscream with his original head. So there's not many consistent elements beyond looking distantly like a Starscream, which this mold does. And I love Jhiaxus so I'll buy it, (if it's real).

 

Nightbeat deserves his own mold, by gosh!


Woooo!

Oh yeah, the Armadascream mould is totally okay for Jhiaxus in my books, but why colour it like the RID toy? That's like if they'd made T30 Waspinator his Fox Kids colour scheme...

 

Also, I suppose the Jazz-Nightbeat link is that they were both Porsches?

The Armada Starscream mold's just too slender for my tastes. The FOC Seeker mold seems like a better fit for him than this.

 

Edit: Just noticed that he doesn't have hands in that pic. lol

I'm not thrilled (snicker) with these but they'll do.  I do love me some Jazz.

 

So the Jazz mold has to be the mold with the most different heads and accessories at this point.

 

Jazz head, gun, & speakers

Stepper with Nightstick, gun, & speakers

Treadshot head, gun, & speakers

Kickoff head, gun, & speakers

Wheelie head, slingshot, & speakers

Nightbeat head, gun, & lights

 

That's not counting the SG Longarm custom stuff either.

Redmercury is a reliable source.

 

The images are Photoshopped as much as Hasbro tends to Photoshop their publicity photos (which is a lot).

 

Perhaps Jhiaxus with his previous toy colors is Hasbro's way of getting something RID into the 30th Anniversary.

I think the Jhiaxus is worse as a RiD homage/recognition than it is just as a G2 Jhaxus. As the later the colors are all wrong but it looks to have an appropriate head on a passable body. If you're looking at it from a RiD perspective it's the right colors but everything else wrong and it's an obscure non-show toy as your only line recognition in the 30th Ann. which is sad.

I'm a huge Nightbeat fan but if they wanted to do a RID homage the RTS Jazz mold as a Spychanger Hot Shot might have been nicer.


-ZacWilliam, surprised to see Windblade listed so early, didn't Hasbro say she was slated for Fall 2014 for the very end of the 30th line. And she doesn't even have a proto to show... That seems weird.

Making Jhiaxus a partial homage to the RiD toy really does seem on par for Hasbro. They do love referencing character's original toys in updates, and that technically is Jhiaxus' original toy.

 

Nightbeat is odd considering the relative lack of redecoes from past lines so far, and some people were speculating they couldn't due to budget reasons. It's not the ideal Nightbeat update, but I don't hate it at all. The mold is too nice to write it off.

 

I was kind of hoping Windblade would be a voyager. At this size, it might be too small for how ornately designed she is. Going to withhold judgement until we see an actual toy.

 

Still, Nightbeat and Jhiaxus don't really excite me enough to be must buys.

I think Hasbro said Windblade was going to be a Deluxe when they first revealed her name and design.
 
It also occurs to me that the use of the Jazz mould here suggests the leaked Hardhead listing probably will be the fabled Warpath retool after all.

I was hoping for Nightbeat from the IDW 'Bee mold. I don't think I like the idea of him as another hood-chest guy, and while I love the RTS Jazz mold, I'm kinda over it by now.

 

I really Jhiaxus will be able to clap. Otherwise, I think Hasbro's cost-cutting has gone a bit far.... :D
