So I've been on the TFNation website out of morbid curiosity and have two main questions: 1) Is it possible to buy day tickets on the door, or is it advance reg only? (bit of a weird thing to seemingly not address anywhere on the site, but hey ho) 2) Was Simon Furman busy this year? He's not on the ...

So, as a counterpoint to news and an attempt at actual discussion, do we think TakaraTomy will ever get round to doing Masterpiece Skids? I mean obviously they can get Crosscut out of the same mould, but is that going to be enough to justify it, given their current fixation on the cartoon as the pri...

Well it's a good thing you were on hand to poll every single child in the world to find out if they like it or not then. New IPs are an entirely separate matter. If people want Thundercats to be an ongoing thing, this is what it needs to do. If it doesn't work, fine. They gave it a go. The target de...

Yep. Any attempt to market the toys to the collectors market has died on its arse and the "serious" cartoon reboot was a spectacular flop. If the brand wants to exist in the modern market it needs to reinvent itself for kids, as the nostalgia thing clearly isn't going to work. It's just a shame that...

I'm definitely going to wait until I've seen the final product in some comparison shots before making a decision. Based off the initial images I really don't see it dislodging my current version.

Rumble and Frenzy always give me a headache because they were both blue in their most prominent portrayals back in the day (albeit Rumble had lavender details in the cartoon and Frenzy was more of a toy-accurate blue when he got to do stuff in the comics and tertiary media) This is my only gripe wi...

Big fan of Takara sacking off the idea of releasing new toys in favour of just actively antagonising Warcry now.

AKA say hello to anime version Prowl.

Evening, losers.

MMC's Riot and Furor be here. Massive cognitive dissonance off these guys due to them using purple for Furor instead of dark blue, which means he's technically cartoon Rumble.

Other than that, these guys are great and everyone should have them.

I honestly don't see the distinction. In either case you wind up paying premium prices for an inferior product. If you don't see the difference between the attitudes of "this isn't ideal, but it's within acceptable parameters and I'm not sure it could be done better" and "I think this is a sack of ...

Yeah, there's a massive difference between "that's probably the best we'll get, so I can live with it" and "it's okay if it looks like crap because it's a difficult design so whatever".

The latter is basically inviting HasTak to treat the consumer like shit because we'll buy it anyway.
