  1. Maybe I'm a lap dog, but I blame the vendor, that is the people who Mattel entrusted to produce a quality product for them and didn't hold up their part of the bargain. So Mattel fixed it, and though other waves of DCUC have been off track, wave 4 is coming out pretty much on schedule. Mattel's been good to me for over 20 years-- I got no beef with them. Sorry to be a voice of dissent.

    Elbows are atleast something, man! The '84 Prime looks like a freakin' Marvel Legend next to the stuff we got in '88 & '89!
  3. I just looked over and saw your avatar... @sad@ I'm so, so sorry for dissin' Covergirl!

    Tisc! I Loved power master prime/ginra as a kid If they make this they surely need to make a god bomber or/roller (I guess) add on toy as well for it I'd love to see a remake of him too & it would be a neat way to get a fully armored ultramangus repaint to boot! Also I don't think they really could have done abetter job with this toy no matter when they made it :S Give him more than two points of articulation, for starters, and longer arms that hide better in tractor trailer mode. He needs Hi Q, or Ginrai as he's called in the MTMTE books, who should have a little seat in the cab or trailer to ride along. Yeah, and a Grief Counseler-- for the few Decepticons that survive after this bad boy rolls on to the battlefield!
  5. How about SSgt. Covergirl? I can't imagine Covergirl being skipped over. I'm sure we'll see her either before this line is halted in favor of the movie figures or after when the line returns. The non-discriminating collector might make due with a 'movie version" of Covergirl that I'm sure Hasbro will be producing since she is a character in the film. I believe she's Hawk's secretary. Now excuse me while I go to wash my hands. My fingers feel dirty after having typed that last line. Hasbro didn't use her codename at all for the DTC Comic Pack-- maybe legal didn't want to take on the Covergirl make-up people? Was she really that memorable from the cartoon or comic book? I remember seeing her mentioned in a cartoon when I was a kid and thinking, "Who the Heck is that?" When I got a Covergirl from a garage sale I just called her "Scarlett". Give us a Jinx first, please! Though a blonde Covergirl from MASS Device would be cool, I suppose.
  6. If you mean G1-accurate by "updated", I'll take that bet on Megatron! My guess is that Henkei will stay a safe investment for most of these guys, though we could see another Prime...

    Dear Hasbro, Please make this as an Ultra Class or bigger: This was a great idea and would have made an awesome toy if it didn't come out so late in G1 when all your toys sucked! Thank you. sincerely, A Long-time Fan
  8. Wha? That sure came out of left field! I wonder what version of Lady Jaye they're using and if this is where we'll get that corrected v. 1 Flint...
  9. I think the most common thoughts on this would be "Superman's Teenaged Clone" or just Kon-el/Connor Kent. Why would he not be called Superboy? Because the Estates of Siegel and Shuster is either contesting DC's right to the name, or has already won the rights to Superboy away from them. Kon-El also hated that name, atleast initially. Howsabout "Superman: 90's Kon-el" or whatever title he was in during "Reign"?
  10. You mean there were comics before Frank Miller and every hack writer who followed him? Thanks for mentioning the comics-- yeah, sometimes I miss that Batman, too.
  11. And we thought Burt Ward looked ridiculous in those tights and green trunks! @loll@ Seriously, if they wanted another teen drama why not a young Barbara Gordon before she went to live with her single cop dad in Gotham. It could take place in Jim's old hometown of Chicago and have a smart, beautiful, and troubled teen solve crimes and get in trouble at school for kicking guy's asses. Get me the CW, quick!
  12. Funny that someone with such a goofy avatar could be one of the most rational people on the board The Force is strong with you...
  13. What markings do you mean? There wasn't a logo or anything like that on the original version... The original Python Patrol Leader didn't have the classic bare arms but wore a full-body green stocking with yellow waffle markings. The SDCC pics don't show much of his legs, but you can see a little yellow... The Decos on Python Officer, Tiger Force Duke, or International "Glenda" Scarlett haven't been exactly like the originals. TF Flint seems closest of the homages so far, until Python CG comes out. I guess these subtle changes are what Hasbro considers "updates".
  14. That Hound is great though, easily replacing my Alternator, and a few missing paint aps won't stop me from getting a very cartoon-accurate Cyclonus. My Takara Re-issue Galvatron will definitely be getting his loyal manservant! Cheetor looks better transformed properly...
  15. I could always buy a new G.I.Joe for less than $3-- until 1992. That's when I needed another quarter to cover the tax. I wonder how well a Covergirl would sell, since they can't call her "Covergirl" anymore. But after Falcon, Nemesis, and Fred VII, the next c. '87 character really ought to be a hoodless Jinx!
  16. Reminds me of the G1 clones, with a little bet of Dreadwing thrown in.
  17. New official pics here care of Tformers. Wow, anybody want my loose Alternator Hound!
  18. All the early Ironhides have come with light blue faces to match their windows, which has lead people to paint them silver or hold off until Henkei. See pics here, at the middle of the page. But this is still the FIRST G1-style Ironhide with an actual head!
  19. Speak for yourself. I might just get all three. R&R is not bad and if I get that one I can skip getting another Sharc I don't need. I like Gung-Ho colored that way. He has a nice jungle look. CC is cool just to have Fred in the armor. I tried headswapping the CG Fred head with a BA CC and the helmet does not fit the head so this must have been fixed for the comic pack. The IG/Viper is almost a dream come true. I would gladly take more like this. GH looks much better in those colors-- they're comic accurate, too. Check it out. Good to hear that there is some interest in Fred-- I may just get the pack for GH and sell/trade the CC.
  20. At last, official pics-- even though they don't look any better *sigh* I stand a good chance at actually seeing the troop-builder pack because my local Walmart, Target, and Fred Meyer (Northwest chain) move through a lot of product and keep the pegs pretty fresh-- we're close to the Canadian border and so many folkes come down from Vancouver. I'm fairly excited about that one. I still don't have an IG because I didn't want a Doombot-like army of soulless Destroids! The other two, though, leave me fairly conflicted. I'm mostly a loose collector so I'd prefer the GH and Rock with the improved articulation so that GH can sit down and Rock can actually hold his gun. But I just don't want the guys they're packed with. I suppose that I could sell or trade that Phoney Commander to some happy Fred-o-phile, but Playskool D6... I have nothing nice to say, so I'd rather say nothing at all.
  21. I hope to at least get a Smurf-faced Iron Hide in my Christmas stocking this year. Hey, do you think that jerk Autobots like Sunstreaker use to tease Iron Hide about not being a Headmaster?
  22. I had to check this topic just to see how big a range the posts were taking. There have been at least as many variations of Batman in his own comic books over the years (not to mention how he's been depicted in team books like JLA), as there has been in TV shows and movies. Like Will Eisner said comics don't function the same way as films, but I think most people would agree that comic book characters in general are easier to adapt to animation. Batman, like animation, is naturally a bit bolder and bigger than life. I therefore don't think it's fair to compair a great cartoon about a comic book superhero to a great movie with the same character. I mean, a relatvely 'dark' character like Wolverine can run around in comics and cartoons in bright yellow tights and still be taken seriously! What feels gritty and familiar and thus 'believable' in one medium needs to be adapted to convey a similiar feeling in another. TAS was great because it was the first time outside of comics that real fans who grew up with the character had the artistic freedom to truely do him justice. They also had incredibly good timing, attempting an unconventional and expensive animated series after Tim Burton proved that a darker Batman can create a sea of cash! Considering Nolan's limitations, which were probably greater for Batman Begins, a think the last two films were very faithful and DK was excellent.
  23. Nice that they're giving us another shot at getting the BAT so soon! It'll be a beautiful day when these li'l guys make it to my local Target!

    Voyager class Thundercracker and Sky Warp, with a re-paint Starscream later down the line. That fixes two Classics Seeker problems with only one new mold. We really do need a Wheeljack, too. And a proper tripple-changing Springer mold that would also work for Sandstorm.
  25. Wow, that's a statement! And that would make Rodimus Prime what exactly?
