Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I've not seen that. Is that by the current guys doing the G1 ongoing?

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

Well, nothing good comes of social media, so I don't blame him for getting into a heated online debate. Guy's got on an opinion on it. So has everyone else. The end. The Regeneration One (the largely unwanted follow on the Marvel comic) series I couldn't get into either. Partly because it didn't fee...

Re: Vintage G1 (Walmart reuses). Your thoughts?

I'd be more for them if they weren't a store exclusive and a little out of reach outside of the US. The main specialist retailers in the UK have been out of stock of these for months online ...unless you catch them at a convention, then they have piles of the things. I'm stupid for G1 reissues. I ha...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Tbh, I'm only familiar with Cloak & Dagger from their appearances in Marvel's Midnight Sons Horror comics of the '90s. I wasn't aware of their origin until you posted. I've been giving Preacher another go on Prime. I love the comics and this feels a bit wide of the mark, and the characters aren't ge...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I like the extra tweaks they gave to the Encore set - the clip on Bonecrusher's arms that holds them together is such a simple thing, but makes such a difference. It feels a lot more sturdy in combined mode than my vintage one. Same goes for the recent Hasbro reissue. I like the Constructicons.

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

That would be a good one - I'd love some modern, articulated Pretenders with a Legends scaled figure inside. That would be cool. And more likely to be something of a goer. Probably.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Stealth Striker Shot Shadow Striker Roughly Legends/Basic scaled figure with a mid-transformational alt-mode with spring-loaded gimmick. Here, it's some pop out rocket thrusters, which rather makes a nonsense of the name. What exactly is stealthy or snipery about a pair of rocket booster...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

Er...back to Transformers... yeah, I'd forgotten too there's a lot of big ticket stuff already commanding money from fans. Unicron is a big financial ask, and it's a toy at the end of he day, it's something you can live without. A more sensible Titan scaled figure would have been more than adequate....

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

I honestly can't believe that after three years and the same amount of prime ministers, your government still hasn't gotten their shit together. The whole thing probably could have been reasonably painless with competent leadership in place, but hell, I don't think it would even be possible to make...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Having been impressed with Arms Micron Wildrider, I thought I'd see if I could track down his erstwhile Arms Mircon partner. I ended up with a boxed complete version and boxed complete AM Rumble and Frenzy too. For roughly the same price the aftermarket is now asking for one of tiny AM figure kits. ...

Re: Official Transformers new/upcoming releases! Hasbro, TakaraTomy and more

A case of right idea, wrong size and time? I can't imagine anyone outside the US going for Unicron (the shipping costs would probably add another chunk of change to an already expensive toy) and, to be quite honest, this is asking a lot of anyone interested. A $600 price tag is a lot, and tips into ...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I don't think that really follows. People on Earth exist in a gendered society and they have to define themselves in relation to that world. They're also part of a species that does reproduce sexually, even if their own biological drives aren't necessarily conducive to reproduction. That's what the...

Re: Some thoughts on the Marvel TF comics

I've just been idly thinking about Dark Horse's old Terminator comics where some of the T-800 endoskeletons had female flesh bodies "Her butt make look biteable, but believe me, you'd break your teeth." That's kind of how I feel about female Transformers, and gendered robots I suppose. They can mimi...

The Encore set is pretty sturdy in combined mode (as is the Hasbro one). That said, I wouldn't be flinging it around :)

Re: TF Nation 2019

From listening to all the IDW panels, I think the constant shift in editorial has caused a number of issues for various creative types involved, which all agreed settled down once Barber was on board :)

@dalek - have you had a go on your Encore Devastator yet?
