  1. I liked it, just watched the makings of DD on youtube and it was interesting how they chose the suit. I'm stoked.. .as much as I liked Bale, sometimes the whisper/growl voice was weird.

     

    I agree with this, really liked Bale as Bruce Wayne, but the voice he used as Batman just seemed wrong

  2. DD is one of the few movies that the directors cut should have been the theatrical. What was cut really was a night and day difference with the movie. It wasn't Affleck's fault that DD wasn't memorable, it was the fact that it was missing Matt Murdock. A good super hero movie requires some time spent as their alter ego and DD was really missing that. The directors cut corrects that.

     

    As for Batman, I'm not crazy about the casting, but it really isn't a problem with Batman, it is can Afleck do a good Bruce Wayne. Really as long as the writers don't go all Batman and Robin with this movie any actor who is in shape could play Batman. I think he'll do fine as long as he remembers this one key. People won't go see this movie because of him, they'll go see it because it is a Batman movie. It is one of those times when the source material is far more popular then the actor in the role.

  3. I'd be all over a Clamp Down police version Sideswipe. Already have my pre-order in for Tiger Tracks. G2 Sideswipe or Deep Cover though would likely be a pass. The Datsun's are a little trickier since I think the only versions they released were the Anime BlueStreak (done), Prowl (done), Smokescreen (done), Chromestreak, Diaclone Blue Bluestreak, and Hasbro toy Bluestreak.

     

    So if they were going to milk that mold using colors that were already used there isn't much left, though I would be all over the Diaclone blue Bluestreak.

  4. I hope Bumblebee can talk again in the next series. I've never liked that he couldn't.

    same, to me it makes no sense for him not to speak and I think most older fans would question the logic of autobots having the technology to travel through space and make warp gates but not being able to fix Bumblebee's voice box

    I think they actually answered that in the show something about it being a part of him or some such & also I am sure they said they could fix it were they on cybertron

     

    It was a non-repairable biological part, the only way to get one would be to likely take someone else's.

  5. ^ Impressive MOC collection you've got there! I've got 2 MOC GoBots myself: black/green Cy-Kill and Spay-C. I'd like to pick up some more one day... namely red/white Cy-Kill and Loco, since this was my first transforming toy ever. Still want to get some of those cool Machine Robo releases too.

     

     

    I can probably give you a solid deal on Loco. Never been a fan of the figure and I think that I got him in a lot. I got the MR figures around a decade ago, they have climbed in price rather steadily since then if you can find them. I would say the ones I have are some of the rarer figures in my collection.

  6. Is it just me or are these third party figures looking better and better then the stuff that Hasbro has been putting out lately? Just put in my pre-orders now for Fans Projects Function x02 and x01

     

     

    Not just you. I don't have many 3rd party figures, but MakeToys Giant is one of the best Transformers related figures I've got in my collection.

     

    I think HasTak has some quality molds, but they tend to over expose those, and their primary lines are littered with action features that detract from the figure. I know I'm not the target demographic, but I would like to think that kids would prefer to have weapons like they look in the shows over this light up things.

  7. Just looking around my collection room.

  8. I've still got my old Tux. He's awesome actually.

     

    A lot of the old Go Bots are awesome figures but get a bad rap because of the Go Bots name/show, and the fact that they are inferior to figures three to four times their size. Yes there are some pretty weak figures like Tank, who's transformation is to just assume a yoga pose, but for each of those there are some pretty cool figures like Tux or Stallion. All in all I think the Go bots line was superior to that of the G1 mini-spies line which I think is a much better way to compare the two.

     

    The Super Go-Bots though generally were destroyed by the G1 figures, there were however a few super go bot gems. Just hate seeing people bash them by saying the line was happy meal toys and figures that transformed by standing them up on the back ends.

     

    Growing up doing that with Hot Wheels and opening the doors on said car were most of the transformers I had. Think I had Starscream, Thundercracker, Jetfire, Hoist, Prime, Afterburner, and Smokescreen.

     

    Most of those figures had a ton of accessories or were fragile. To the point that Go Bots might have actually been a bit more play friendly. In large they had no accessories, were generally tough to break, and quick to transform. Plus they were in scale with Hot Wheels.

     

    I just don't know why they are treated so horribly by collectors.

     

    Obviously I collect them myself. Have a decent sized MOSC collection along with a good loose set and some Machine Robo exclusive figures.

  9. Go Bots had a few combiners. Two were just power suits and a central body. Select Gobots could be placed in the suits. They made two versions of that.

    They also had two true combiners. Puzzler and Monsterous

    The Go Bot with a top hat was not part of any combiner. That was the Rolls Royce Go Bot Tux

  10. so the full rendering of mmc predaking aka feral rex, after getting the full info on mmc and unique toys predakings im extremely disappointed in the fact that the five members are not the same size, both have razorclaw as a bigger figure, smdh, also mmc is adding a 6th member to the team.....what is it with 3rd party groups wanting to add a 6th member to all the 5 member combiner teams

     

    6th member?... I think that is stupid...

     

    The 6th figure is going to be a Sabre tooth Tiger and not required for the combiner. The new figure will be a replacement arm to offer a more balanced appearance. Divebomb would mount on the back.

  11. strangely that havent done any repaints of the new seeker mold yet and grimmy only got a half repaint, and rod only got the evil leader treatment, wonder why so many for this mold

     

    What do you mean? Hasbro Thundercracker is the new seeker mold, as is Takara Sunstorm.

  12. Whatttt? Jeepers Creepers is the bomb, Staks, Zero, Wrong Way, & the Crappy bumble bee ripoff are all some of my favorites, mostly cause I had them or at least got them in trades at some point in my toy life. I recently found JCreepers at a garage sale for 25 cent! I wish I could find the bigger futuristic car its black & red w/shark fins and a blue window area for the head and eyes, I wish I could get than one back, I think they even had a little silver rider in the seating area of the car........ahhh good cheap times.....I need to open a twitter account for Jeepers Creepers, maybe once he gets more followers than Jesus he can be taken off the list......

     

    Psycho or Future Machine (the black future car you are talking about) is one of the more common Super Go bots so it shouldn't to difficult to round one up

    Bug Bite's one of my favorites as well, along with the black Porsche 928, known as Herr Fiend (lol). They named the silver Porsche Baron Von Joy ... such class! Super GoBots were just awesome.

     

    There's also some cool Machine Robo stuff that Tonka unfortunately never released over here that Bandai did in Japan. There was a bus, a couple of bullet trains, a rocket. I've stalked ebay for them from time to time, but they always fetch too much cash.

     

    The best one of those I think is the mini-cooper. I have the bus, the mini, a trike (not Mr. Moto), one of the trains, the rocket, super gobot raizer, super go bot Spy Eye, and the blackbird Snoop as part of my Machine Robo/hard to find Go Bots collection. Always annoys me when I see a go bots stink post because a large majority of them were quality figures when compared to the Transformers of the same size. Admittedly most of them had horrible names though.

  14. Rock Lords!! They were ridiculous, laughable, a parody of transforming toys...and I loved them. (lol)

     

    Yeah...not all Go-bots were bad. I remember having a camouflaged six-wheeled tank that transformed into a pretty awesome-looking (and pretty-well articulated too, by the way) robot that carried an arm-cannon that didn't look unlike a certain Decepticon leader's weapons of choice. To be fair it was from the larger-scale line, but anyway...it was awesome.

     

    Super Go-Bot Defender.

     

    I think Go-Bots get a bad rap for not being comparable to the larger sized transformers. I don't think trying to compare Leader-1 to Optimus or the seeker jets is really the right way to go.

     

    When comparing say Major Mo to Windcharger the Go bot is the far superior figure.

  15. i recently snagged an old quartz transforming jet watch. ( actually 2) one blue and one white. the white one- the plastic where the watch snaps into is faded from white to tan BADLY, the jet itself is in great white condition. now my idea is:

    paint the plastic on the band maybe a grey or flat black, the jet itself, add paint aps thatll make it look like a g1 starscream 893USA1-thumb.gif with reds and blues ( silver wheels and black front landing gear, blue rear landing gear )

     

    what is your opinion?

    waste of time

    great idea-do it up

    just sell it

     

     

    honestly i was gonna get into collecting these old watches, but 2 jets here are telling me thats a waste of time and money

     

     

    Get some rit dye and dye it black. Just need to put it in a pan over a low heat and keep a eye on it.
