Yamcha would be a better President than Trump...

Damning with faint praise there.

@  Bass X0 : (23 January 2017 - 03:06 PM)

Kodos would be a better president than Trump.

Don't blame me! I voted for Kodos!

Jinbu has legs that go all the way up.

Unless you really like legs that go all the way up to the armpits.

I would say repaint Jinbu from Transformers Go, but let's not, they're just awful.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

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

The one that can't be made by a fan with sculpy or photoshop is just a drawing.  I don't believe it is real yet.  If it is, I will not buy them.

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
