  1. I think you nailed it there in your list... they haven't done nearly as well as of late in updating old G1 characters, which is really a shame. This line should've been the precursor to the movie in '06, but it's looking more like it's going to go another direction than heralding the return of G1.
  2. Honestly, in all the scheduling shakeups and such on CN I'd completely forgotten to look for new eps anyway. I didn't really like the storyline, so I don't feel I'm missing out too much. Hasbro is committing marketing suicide by staying w/ CN for Cybertron though... way to bury what has the potential to be the best TF line since RiD in terms of design and play value. Makes one wonder how TFs would be doing if they had a better show carrier like FoxBox or something......
  3. I think the only failures lately in TFs are the poor choices in Alternator remolds, and of course the TRU reissue problems of overpricing and funky distribution. I give Hasbro credit for trying to satisfy collectors by removing the springs and returning the missiles to their original lengths, (in fact I think it's great 'cause the springs wear out after a while anyway), but unless they find a way to drop the price then it's still hard to justify the expense. As for Cybertron, I think the new packaging looks awesome, but *may* be confused w/ the Star Wars Clone Wars figure carding. I think it looks awesome though, like they took the MTMTE page layouts and made packaging from it.
  4. Yeah, I picked up Energon Starscream and Roadblock yesterday, and got the latest combiner limbs a few days previous... kinda sad to know that the last of the Energon figures are shipping now, isn't it?? I mean, once they're all found, there's nothing to do but wait until summer for Cybertron to hit.
  5. C'mon, dude... I think it's fairly safe to say that most of this fandom doesn't know what that's like anyway, otherwise we'd probably be doing that instead of collecting TFs!! @smilepunch@
  6. I agree w/ redrum2581... if they don't remold Prowl into Red Alert, they're frickin' nuts. I still won't like the mold any better, but it could definitely work for them. Like everyone else, I'm still puzzled at the 2nd remold of the Corvette... should we anticipate 3 versions of each mold now, or is this a stall tactic until more new molds are designed??
  7. EDIT: Whoops, double-post. Sorry guys!
  8. 1/1/03 on that pic, eh Dark Gundam?? Man, you really got the drop on the rest of us! I personally prefer going for the symmetrical look on Superion... both arms/legs matching. At least that way both arms have some articulation besides the shoulders.
  9. Beat me to it. Cool, less work.
  10. I can make it up for you; I'll need a few hours, but it should be fairly easy. Do you need it as an EPS or AI file?
  11. Awesome work there - I would leave the cannon as it is though, since it's just an add-on at this point anyway.
  12. Nice looking collection... I'm esp. jealous of the CR Brave Max you've got there. I could use that Megabolt Megatron as well. Man, I'm so close to having that whole line!
  13. Like most here, I don't remember the Minicons' names, nor do I really care. Once I had enough of a grasp to follow along the comics' arc, I stopped trying to remember them! I have the same problem w/ the Micromasters series too, only worse since I never owned any Micromasters to be able to put the toy w/ the comic version.
  14. Straight Edge nailed it... I love that ep; one of my all-time favorites. They even got SS's voice pretty close.
  15. Yeah, I just tested it too... although I've yet to find these outrageous eBay prices everyone is talking about either. Still, that's the best price I've seen recently.
  16. Is there any mode in which that Decepticon symbol on Barricade is right-side up? That kinda bugs me. I also noticed you went w/ the symmetrical combination instead of using 1 copter and 1 tank for the arm and leg pairs.
  17. That's gonna be a hard sell, considering it's a mod that started this thread! LOL Now, back onto the off-topic, I was reading up on digital cams on PCWorld.com and they state 3.2 MP will produce a photo-quality 5x7 print. 4 MP faithfully reproduces an 8x10, and 5 MP will go as high as 11x14 before the image gets pixellated. Of course, use of digital vs. optical zoom factors in and all that other garbage, but as a rule of thumb those are the print sizes.
  18. Actually, rumor has it that "he" is a "she" - I guess we'll have to wait and see. I think it's decent, but not a "must have" by any means. The other 3 convoys we've seen are much more impressive.
  19. Really?? Why are both so hard to find then?? I found each one only once, and made sure to scoop them up. Never seen 'em in a store since.
  20. Dude, it's a SHIELD. Can't you read the box?? Guns are evil; this guy just wants to protect himself and never retaliate....... @smilepunch@ Ya know, it's funny though - for as much as people complain about the engine/shield thingy, almost everyone who picks him up likes him enough to post about it. I think he's a great update the the Sideswipe/Dead End TF scheme, just as Meister is/was for Smokescreen/Silverstreak. I really like how the designers keep revisiting old TF schemes and improving upon them.
  21. Whoops - double-post. Sorry guys!
  22. I said it before and I'll say it again: Bumblebee should be a basic Neon and Cliffjumper should get the SRT-4 treatment. It's a simpe remold that would make a world of difference in the overall look of the end product. As for the Mitsubishi Alt, maybe they could contort the Endeavor into Trailbreaker? I guess they could try Ironhide too, but man I hope not. Looking at '06 models, the new Raider might be plausible too. I'd be surprised if they took a Mitsubishi truck over all the other licenses, though.
  23. That's really weird that Canada would get 1 reissue in bulk and the US would get the other. I really wonder how Hasbro plans their distribution, if at all, sometimes. We have plenty o' Skids here - if you want a straight swap of Sideswipe for Skids, PM me.
  24. He's not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. He's not as solid as I would like, but he's not built like a house of cards either. I for one really like how complex a TF scheme he has for such a small scale. If only the larger sizes could be more creative like this!
  25. TFs shouldn't need modding to be passable. If they do, they're crap. That goes for inkwashing too. I think Ben Yee's review is pretty much spot-on; check it out here.
