Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Cyberverse Siesmic Stomp Grimlock - This Leader sized fellow has made his way to TJ Maxx and Marshall's for $20. Seems fair. Don't think they made it over here (unless anyone's going to correct me; please do) but if I saw one in store for the equivalent in sterling it'd probably be an impulse buy. ...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

I am surrounded by shelves of them, but pretty much talked out TFs as a subject (war/history/etc) years ago. Not really any new media of interest, enjoyed conventions for a few years but it's not as strong an interest, etc. Other hobbies have come to the forefront. Work/life happens. Still keeping a...

Re: Official manga translations!

That's towards the end IIRC.

I need to find some time to try to work out if these include the colour photo/image montages from TV Magazine. Fairly high page counts, so maybe. Less interested in the manga itself.

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

How much do Titans go for over there? Here I think Trypticon was $180, Predaking was around $200 and Omega has gone up to a pretty shocking $225. Fort Max bottomed out around $70, which I'd have been giddy to get him for execpt that he'd have needed something like $100 worth of third party accessor...

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

The price of the Titan class stuff over here generally doesn't seem too bad, particularly as they don't tend to stay at it. Versus the pricing on eg Jetfire or the leader class stuff, which feels like a rip off.

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

Is everyone else also assuming that the space micromasters won't actually be a shuttle?

Kind of want a Scorponok to go with Fort Max but in some respects would rather have a not-too-knackered original one, with the same sort of discrepancy in size.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

They did knockoffs (pretty decent quality) including the packaging but did clearly label, so you'd know if it was one of theirs --

Punch/Counterpunch This is the repaint of the Sideswipe/Sunstreaker CHUG mold. I was dissapointed this guy was a club exclusive when he came out. I haven't taken him out of the box yet, though the box was already open. The club one or the CHMS remake? Not a bad mould apart from the head being a lit...

Re: Custom Siege Pinpointer (or: babby's first dye job)

The Juniors are close to deluxe size, anyway, so the proportions are okay. It works surprisingly well on the originals too, judging by Skullcruncher -- the original HM head was so oversized that the TR is more proportionate. In all cases the sockets are going to need a bit of padding though. The ove...

Re: Your Review On The IDW2

Some neat world-building and art, the Nautica one-shot at the end of the first run of issues being a particular highlight. Not gripping enough to work as individual issues.

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Really my only complaint is that they feel a bit incomplete without Meltdown, Half-Track, Vanquish and Fireshot to hang out with. But I guess that's my complaint with all the Micromasters, since (with a very few notable exceptions) they were always characterized more as teams than individuals. Mmm,...

Re: NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Mmm, dino base guy ended up with Metroplex and base mode Fort Max with micro-scale stuff, due to the size, but if memory serves I did get the original Flywheels close enough that Trypticon was basically the accessory. Not having a strong sense of smell is definitely a blessing with cats. And not dis...
