  1. Well the Serpent Armor was the only one I couldn't find the first time around.
  2. The Targets here have suddenly put out the wave again after, what, a couple of months? I was surprised, so I picked up several of the Serpent Armor one. I figured I'd let people know to check Targets again. The couple I checked actually had quite a few.
  3. I agree. The only reason I picked up the "Iron Panther" (or whatever it is called, the Armadillo repaint) was for Thunder. I mean I like the Armadillo, but I already have a few.
  4. The Cobra set does, generally, look better. Two problems with it though. It's going to be a pain in the ass army building that trooper (for those that want to). I'm just going to make him an individual if I get the set. The other is Destro. The problem isn't that he wears a mask/helmet. It is that he WEARS a mask/helmet. They got around the problem in ROC by making his head turn into metal. But all the other versions? I had to laugh at that pic I posted above since Destro has such a tiny head relative to everyone else in the pic. Just jow tiny IS McCullen's real head under
  5. Same here. Granted, the bike is far and away better than the Venom Cycle of a few years back, but I just don't see the 'Noks tooling arouhnd on dedicated motorcycles. I always pictured them on high-end italian machines (stolen natch). http://www.yojoe.com...kgroundassault/ http://www.yojoe.com.../dreadnokcycle/ Yeah sure it has happened, but does that mean it should keep happening? At least this guy's outfit isn't too flashy. I don't see why we couldn't two of those stingers from the groundassult pic, and 2 missing noks. Like Zarana and Zandar. as for the current new g
  6. Powercore stuff: They look ok, from what I've seen. I don't like the clear plastic "mini-cons". I mean are they real? Are they holograms? Back in Energon the "Energon weapons" were clear because they were literally energon created weapons. Rodimus Minor: Nice. One interesting factor about these late addition Animated toys is that they could have easily played down the "cartoony" aspects and thrown them into the Classics line. Ironhide: A repaint of Ratchet? There's a shock. Actually, I think the mold, though the mold is pretty crappy, works better as Ironhide then Ratchet. R
  7. Beach Head: The "body" work ok. I guess. Is that a removable knife in that shoulder sheath? Duke: Alright. He looks mad. I never understood why they didn't do "environmental" figures before now. I mean we saw Snake Eyes in artic gear and that was it. Flint: The "body" looks kinda bland here. But it looks like they fixed that crappy holster from Resolute Duke. Too bad. At least his head seems to be smaller than in earlier pics. Roadblock: Looks good. Head is little small it seems though. And what is that...tool thingy he has. Scarlett: I like her, but as yojobro

  9. So how about picking some up for your friends here...? I'm not buying them sight-unseen for anyone. I've gotten ONE direct request via PM, and I was able to score a partial complete set (3 out of the 4)for that person. I just do not want to scour the city (and our three Walmarts) for more of these because I just do not have the time or $$ to spare. Sorry. Hey no worries here. Doesn't hurt to ask right?
  10. There are some fugly toys from all the eras. Ice Cream Soldier, for example, worked MUCH better as Shock Viper. As for the "new sculpt" era, there were a few good ones. Some of the ones *I* like are Dart, Ripper v2, Tele-Viper v3, Scalpel, Barrel Roll, Blackout, Burnout, Crosshair, Faces, Grunt v6, Wide Scope, Double Clutch (better than Recondo), Dr. Mindbender v5, Slip Stream v3, Bombstrike, Medi-Viper, Range-Viper v2, and Torch v2. Torpedo v4/Low-Light v6, Firefly v6, B.A.T. version 4 and Beach Head v7 weren't too bad.
  11. I find it odd we are STILL getting NEW molds like this. What's wrong with the Jolt repaint? Are you surprised they would?
  12. So how about picking some up for your friends here...?
  13. I was tempted to say this movie will suck. But since I know little about it, I can't ACTUALLY say it. The 84 movie is my favorite movie. This will just be a CGI mess.
  14. The 2 TRU hear have probably 2 dozen now.
  15. I think its a good lot. Most appear to be in good condition.
  16. Wow! Sam has a new shirt! I don't mean that as a sarcasctic comment to your post but to the toy itself. Eesh, is it REALLY worth it to spend $30 because Sam has a white shirt instead of black? Especially when I can STILL find HA Bumblebee now? Repaints are one thing, but this is just stupid. The LEAST the coulda done is paint Bumblebee red.
  17. Ah. Ok. Well expect these to go for big bucks on ebay.
  18. Are these things out in Canada?
  19. At the LEAST we got a few NEW molds and/or characters. Core characters or not, how many times can they shove Bumblebee down our throats? He's not even as "cutesy" as the G1 version. He's creepy being unable to talk, ESPECIALLY after he could at the end of the first movie.
  20. True, but there were limitations. And they didn't come with swords and whips and axes INSTEAD of guns.
  21. I'm just glad he has 2 hands. The first version from the DVD pack had that "karate chop pose" hand. If they can do interchangeable heads, why not hands too? There is an upcoming figure, don't remember which of the top of my head, that has them.
  22. I picked up Animated Arcee the other day. Surprised I found her at all. Her packaging says she's one of the top swordfighters on Cybertron. The question, for discussion @firedevil@ , I have is what is the deal with so MANY Transformers coming with melee weapons instead of guns? Ever since Beast Machines (they had an episode pointing out that Rattrap doesn't have any guns in his robot form), they have been doing this "give them whips and swords" thing. BM Rattrap has a whip, as do movie Jolt and movie Rampage. Sideways and Barricade had "spinning wheel thingies". Long Haul an
  23. Yeah...there were times it was hard to follow, but I think they were going for the "you are there" shots, and it would indeed be that way if you were at ground level watching it all. I think completely in-frame shots made at a distance where you could see every move would have seemed predictable and boring, in my humble opinion. But yeah...the Bumblebee vs. Barricade fight was a blur. . That is part of the new thing for action movies now, the whole "in your face YOUR part of the scene" crap. I'm not THERE, so I want to see what's going on, not blurs. The thing you have to remember though
  24. I'm sure they do, but MOTU stuff is sold SPECIFICALLY to adult collectors where as TFs are marketed (dare I say specifically?) to kids. So a different target audience makes all the difference. I also have to wonder if MOTU only being available only has any effect?
  25. Of course, TF2 had a few more problems than one non-actress poping up every now and then, hopefully they can fix those too. Crazy suggestion: give the Autobots personality! We going to need another director for that... I am hoping he will finish his trilogy and move on... me too mate then maybe they can make the transformers film we all wanted from the start Maybe they can reboot it like they are doing with Spiderman... Of course, TF2 had a few more problems than one non-actress poping up every now and then, hopefully they can fix those too. Crazy suggestion
