  1. hey guys, you mind sharing how much you found it for? I'm trying to look for the best deal on this one.




    €65 euro, which is about 101 USD according to my Mac's currency converter. That includes shipping from Hong Kong to The Netherlands though. I got it from crosszgundam, great eBay-seller!

  2. man i want TWO omega supremes so i can repaint one to look like one of the omega sentinels from the G1 series..better yet...maybe an ehobby exclusive repaint idea!?!?!


    That's pretty much what I thought when I saw this news. I'd love a Sentinel, but Omega Supreme has to be mine!


    Does anyone need a kidney?

  3. And while we're at it:


    I've seen KOs of the Terrorcons, Combaticons, Protectobots and the Stunticons (minus two members who were replaced by Technobots).


    Mind you: all of the above are crappy beyond belief. Cheap plastic, lack of die-cast, wrong colours and the wrong faction symbols are all pretty obvious.


    Crappy knock-offs of Shockwave also circulate, but are easy to spot as well.

  4. If I'm not mistaken, Sky Lynx was a Tomy mold to begin with. Hasbro licensed it for inclusion in Transformers in 1986.


    Now that the merger with Tomy is complete, Takara presumably would have access to this mold again.


    The toy on display at the booth is an 80s toy though. Look at the wear to the toy and the box for instance. Therefore, this doesn't really tell us anything other than they found an old Sky Lynx and decided to display it.


    If it's to show onlookers that Takara and Tomy have wordked together 20 years ago or to announce Sky Lynx as a re-issue (or both) remains to be seen.

  5. I have all the re-issues except for the Kup/Wheelie-set, Ricochet/Stepper and Targetmaster Hot Rod. Mainly because had the originals of Kup and Hot Rod, don't care for Stepper and seriously hate Wheelie :D;)


    I was most excited with Prime, Soundwave and Predaking, but was excited with every re-issue to be honest.



    Oh, just remembered: I don't have Sixshot either!

  6. Judging by the snippets of dialogue I picked up, this is going to be classic G1 storytelling and not the Japanese/badly dubbed crap we've been spoonfed for the past seven years.


    Oh... and they use the G1 Transforming soundeffect too :)


    Now I just have to get used to Prime with a mouth, and I'm ready to fall in love with this cartoon! :D

  7. Hey, why are we complaining so much? We have a new cartoon, it's GOTTA be better than Armada, and maybe even Energon!


    Give it a chance first! Remember me saying that all the time w/ the movie? Well, it just so happened that [mostly] everyone that gave the movie a chance, LOVED it. So chill, again, please. :D


    Hear hear :)

  8. This is freakin' sweet!


    I loved every bit of it, no matter what some of you say :P


    I especially like the Dinobots and Starscream's voice! "Brilliant strategy, mighty Megatron!"


    As for the complaints about the animation style: remember that Sunbow's version is also heavily stylized. the difference is that you're already used to their style.


    Oh, and I dig the tune! Please keep that as the theme, CN! Pretty please? :D

  9. I'm not sure of the scale of G1.... hell half the time Takara and Hasbro weren't sure of the scale of G1.


    But I have an eye for these things (used to be a model railroader you see) and I reckon a standard event sodabottle (the kind you get in themeparks, from vendingmachines and the coolers in conveniencestores) would be excellent near-scale liquid carriers.


    The scale would then be close to an 18 or 22-meter (roughly european sized) liquid carrier. I'm not sure if those are smaller than those found on your side of the pond, but I imagine so :D
