Re: Universe2.0/Generations Review Thread

Nice, I like SS86 Kup a fair bit, he's far from perfect but he's got charm. Grimlock is pretty good, nice and big, but the crappy dark smoke chest and the non-clear neck, the dubious Wheelie all hold it back. Hot Rod is good but not great due to a high pricetag, dubious vehicle mode that's low-slung...

Re: Winter Hauls

Been a while, everything's been a tad crazy more, so I'll just do a few highlights: TF ER Soundwave w/ Ravage & Laserbeak - this is an oddball set, but likable for 3 remolds that I never got in Siege. Ravage has no tail but has an open mouth, he's painted like a microcassette, I don't love or hate t...

Re: Star Wars - General Discussion Thread

I've had The Mandalorian theme stuck in my head ever since the finale. It's truly amazing we finally have something Disney Star Wars that really feels like it both gets Star Wars and is able to go somewhere new.

Re: How is everyone doing in the age of the Corona Virus?

I developed a fever last night but thankfully it broke pretty quickly. Still don't have my test results back (not that I expected to get them today, especially given the holiday), but I think it's safe to say I have it at this point... On a happier note, congratulations on getting engaged! Thanks. ...

Re: Transformers Kingdom

Rattrap doesn't look much better than the original to my eyes, he's almost the same number of ball joints and he has very little robotic presence. The rat beast mode is gross and panel-ridden. Easy pass. Vertebreak is just not for me, I hope the kids who like that sort of thing will enjoy it but the...

Re: G1 Episode I had never seen??

Of all the eps, I actually remember watching this one a few years ago when I tried to watch all of season 1 and 2. It did indeed have a Trek feel to it, not just in storytelling but in scope since there were so few villains and only a handful of Autobots to oppose them.

Re: Summer hauls!

With all the Siege figures, it was time to get Siege Optimus on sale since he's not going to be easy to find on clearance. My first copy arrived with a an assembly error in the eye, luckily Amazon replaced him fast. He's a pretty good figure, the backpack has jetpack energy and you don't notice it m...

Re: War for Cybertron: Earthrise line

Am I correct in assuming that the coneheads still have the separate nosecone from the Starscream mold, so that their head shape is basically meaningless? You would be correct, they have tiny cones UNDER the main cone as part of their very simplistic heads. There is no need for Cliffjumper to be lar...

Re: Summer hauls!

Massive summer haul: we have been house hunting for over a year, made a number of offers and finally had one accepted. We're moving next week, so we've been packing everything we own and there are stacks of boxes all around the house. It will be very nice to finally get this process over and done w...

Re: War for Cybertron: Earthrise line

I've been getting a bunch more Siege figures lately, and my few Earthrise figures contrast poorly with that. Siege has a better level of design, finer sculpting, better gimmicks, and better materials. The Seeker conehead molds are disappointing, Hoist is pretty mediocre, Cliffjumper isn't a good val...
