Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Yeah, I remember reading that the general bulkiness of the packaging is so that it absorbs the damage and not the figure inside. I've never heard of it being tested that directly, though. I'm not even mad about it--and I did gleefully destroy the box. Wonder if should I be? :laugh: I mean, the figu...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Dirge and Ramjet showed up today, packaged rather... dubiously. Though, I suppose, technicallyyyyyy the set's actual packaging counts as a shipping box, right? Right? Seriously though, Amazon simply slapped a postage label on the toy's package and, uhhh, shipped it. No shipping box, no fo...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

I find it hard to disagree that the late-run Decepticons are a lot more interesting (visually and character-wise) than their Autobot counterparts. Just line the toy catalogues up side by side and it's pretty tough to deny. It's true. Those 87-88 'Cons are all about the aesthetic, more so than the A...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

We've done really well for later characters... Dreadwind, Spinister, Krok, clones, Overlord, etc. And though I'm not going down the Selects route with bigger figures like Super Megatron or the Seacons that side of things is being catered to very well too. True that. I appreciate this sort of renais...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

It is a bit of a love-letter to obscure stuff, isn't it? Oh, it absolutely is! And I would love to see more stuff like this (though, Titans Return did certainly scratch some of that itch). I'd be game for a proper Darkwing and Dreadwind. I already have an Overlord (the Takara Legends version; he's ...

Re: Anyone seen the Netflix show yet? (Minor spoilers)

Mmmm, yeah, I'm having trouble remembering much about it too, honestly. :laugh: Did feel Impactor's and Jetfire's abrupt-ish heel-turns needed a smidge more focus than they got. Like, they seemed pretty onboard with Megatron's cause.... until they weren't. Or am I misremembering how that all played ...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

Earthrise Doubledealer (along with that Hasbro Select Micromaster cassette 4-pack thingermawhatchit). It's nearly the G1 Doubledealer toy beat for beat, but chunkier, with improved articulation... and a smaller head! I love it. And the robotic chicken form is pure nonsense, but I love it. The extra ...

It was okaaay , I guess..??? I didn't hate it, I suppose--I mean, I did sit through it all. It was... ehhh, fun? I'm sorry, it just didn't leave much of an impression, and the more time that I've stewed it over, the more I found to dislike about it. I didn't find the story especially interesting, be...

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

Shame to see the old place as quiet as it is, but I'm one to talk since I, on the rare occasion, quietly haunt the forums, not saying a peep. Same as always, I suppose [/shrug]. Not much interested in the comics these days, since I jumped ship some time ago with the ending of Lost Light . That is/wa...

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

Mmmmm, Doubledealer. Cool bot mode, triple-changer, faction-flipping gimmick, cassette-storing gimmick, and optional Krok & Skar if one felt so inclined. This will do. :)

Didn't feel like a proper first issue, did it? Pretty much business as always, jumping back to where we left off, blah, blah, blah, but very much entering continuity lock out territory for sure. Overall, not bad, but not super exciting me yet either. Not totally stoked on the inflow of new character...

Chips Crisps aside real quick, recently finished re-reading the whole thing. And I'd probably include myself in the "slightly not-great" category too. I dig that SOTW is an unconventional Transformers story. It's weird and nightmare-ish. I've mentioned this before, but for me what was missing from ...

Gotta run, but so much feels this issue. So much.

I'll need to re-read the whole series for full effect. Reserving final judgement until then. Yes, yes, I know it couldn't be helped, but there was too much time between issues and I need a little refresher.

While I don't quite share your distaste for this storyline, it sure could use a little more tension. I get that the idea here is that people cope differently during times of crisis, but four parts into this thing, and I'm still not feeling especially worried about our heroes. I should be though, rig...

do you have something against the best Autobot combiner team? Nope, only callbacks to AHM ;) But seriously, I adore those guys. With the exception to First Aid, they've been grossly misused. I've been thinking that ever since Combiner Wars...how the Lost Light has got a functional combiner when the...

Quickie notes. I'm with Dalek on this, in that this will probably be easier to judge in retrospect. A lot happened... and a lot didn't happen. That said, I was still entertained. As with a lot of folks, what saved this issue for me were the exchanges between Megatron, Tarn, and Overlord. The Decepti...

A bit fuzzy on exactly when the Roadbuster Affair took place. After AHM? Before that...??

Crazy reveal though. Seriously, what the ****?

Makes me wonder what favor Impactor did for Prowl to let 'Buster off so lightly.
