  1. I think we may have seen the Constucticons already. In the episode with the slime that infects transformers out in the woods( I have no idea what the title is), the big bot under all the slime seemed to be Devastator to me. Plus they just left it out there and a Decepticon symbol ended up getting washed off. Or did that end up being Megatron's body... I forget now.
  2. As I said it was my first time watching it, so maybe it will grow on me. We'll see. I actually do like the style and they way the figures match that style are pretty cool too.
  3. First Impressions: Watched my first episode over the weekend(thank god for Tivo). Ummm it's interesting. Fortunately the first one I watched was where Soundwave is introduced. Sounds like he should and actually kind of a bad-ass. Same goes for Megs. I am very pleased with the Decepticons so far. The Autobots? No. Why are they going to birthday parties and hitting pinatas? Not happy AT ALL. I know that they are trying to reach a different demographic, but still. I had to watch the first season of Gen 1 just to get the taste out of my mouth.
  4. Well if D2K is posting then I guess I should. I'd have to say collecting and message boards started around the same time. I had always enjoyed the TFs I had growing up and would keep an eye out for them at garage sales, but nothing to crazy. I did a quick search on eBay on day for Megatron, as I never had him, and saw the reissue for $80. Bought it without even thinking about it. It was then I started researching if other TFs were reissued. One quick Google search led me here. Great community and wealth of knowledge. My "book"cases and wallet have never been the same. My collecting started to go down as I changed the scope of my collecting due to my generous funding of local and online retails. Scaled it back to just Gen 1 Season 1, keep my eye out for good deals on movie characters, and almost anything Soundwave (animated version is interesting enough for me to get it). Posting started to go down as I graduated college in 2005 and started both career work and side work on a gaming web site. I always try to scan through the posts in the morning though and contribute when I can.
  5. If you haven't played Assassin's Creed yet, go play it. A few people have noticed an homage to the Autobot leader littered throughout the game. Click the here to see more.
  6. That repaint is awesome. Simply awesome.
  7. Ive been working over on a game news site (see sig) so my time on other sites has gone down a bit. Got married so that takes some time too. I'm still here though. But yeah it's definitely the terminator's eyes. Makes perfect sense for the new show coming out.
  8. Nevermind. I'm willing to bet this user's comment is dead on: I had forgotten about that show coming up.
  9. For the past few weeks now I have seen these red glowing eyes during shows that come on Fox. They only show for about 5 seconds and then disappear. My wife has not seen them to which she thinks I'm crazy. BUT I have video of them now! To follow up with this there was a promo during football yesterday that had the eyes and a coming in January/February and that was it. Now, these eyes seem to be very robotic looking. Again this is my own speculation, but maybe they are working on another new TF series that looks more like the movie and not cartoony? Hell maybe it's a date for the teaser trailer for TF2. What do you guys think after watching that video?
  10. Yeah I snagged the HD drive for my 360 when Best Buy accidentally had marked at $150. Since then I agree with cr0w, HD movies rock. Honestly unless you are on your way to the store to buy a drive right now, I would wait. The Bluray HDDVD war is still going on and will continue until more production companies choose sides. HDDVD has a lot going for it but it isn't as advertised as bluray which is what I feel is hurting it. Transformers HD? Count me in.
  11. After all that I cancelled my two preorders. I decided that if I went down this path it would get to expensive. I already have two Primes and two Megs and that's perfect. Now if they end up making MP Soundwave... well, I can't be held accountable for my actions.
  12. Same boat. Didn't pickup SS because, like most people, he doesn't look like SS. Hasbro was smart to release him with accurate colors. Skywarp on the other hand... beautiful.
  13. It's behind the scenes for Transformers: The Game, but he talks about auditioning originally for Megatron. Pretty neat stuff. http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22448.html
  14. Sam Register is the Exec. Producer of the upcoming Transformers Animated (stupid title.) IGN had him in for an interview. Talks about what the premise is going to be, when it comes out... things of that nature. http://tv.ign.com/articles/801/801348p1.html ___ Still not sure how I feel about this one. "I think everyone should know that some of the diehard fans are going to be pleasantly surprised." We'll see about that. Somethings sound interesting. Others? Not so much.
  15. Fantastic! Even the wife said this is the best movie she has seen in a long time. There were at least three occasions where everyone in the theater was clapping, which is rare now days. The first time you see/hear Prime sent chills up my back. Some of the dialog was weak, but it's bay. I wish there were more scenes of them fighting. SS needed to be used more(he is great in the game). The first Barracade/Bumble fight was great. Product placement up the wazoo. I have so many thoughts on this movie and can't put them all down. I'll have to come back once everything sinks in. Frenzy's non-speech was the best.
  16. Just bought my tickets online to go see it tonight at 8:00! Good way to start the week.
  17. I agree. Right now we are trying to fight them putting one in almost right across the street from my neighborhood.
  18. I posted a little bit about it here: http://forums.toynewsi.com/index.php?showtopic=2039227 haven't had a chance to pick it up since then, but as I said I will post more impressions.
  19. I have a half-day on the 3rd, so will probably see it then.
  20. Which I have no problem with, but at least give the non-tformers site some credit. In other news, Wired has a lot of TF articles this month, in fact, they are on the cover. I just posted to another great article about Transformers have changed the way toys are.
  21. If you've missed it, Wired's feature this month is Transformers. There are a lot of good articles, Mike has already posted a link to one. There is another about how Transformers have changed the way toys are and how most modern toys stem from what Transformers started. Well read it yourself. http://www.wired.com/entertainment/hollywo...15-07/trans_toy
  22. Wow, that is borderline ridiculous. Meh, as long as the story is there.
  23. THis is where I was going to suggest. It's a fantastic piece of art. Perfect back drop for any display.
  24. Just like the title says! Short but good. Gets into what characters you can play as and what features the game will have. http://www.newspail.com/pail/Interview_wit..._Callum_Godfrey
