    Armada Tidalwave

    By Erikemp,

    How many people will use armada tidalwave with their energon figures? Since they are both Painted similar I was wondering how many people will just sub their armada tidawave for energon tidalwave. I just can't see buying another tidalwave that's so similar to the armada version.

    Compare Masterpiece vs. 20th Anniversary Prime

    By Donkeystyle,

    I've been looking all over for a head to head comparison of the Takara and Hasbro 20th Anniversary Primes. For example, I know that the smokestacks are of different height and that the US version has battle scarring, but what I don't know is if both primes have removable facemasks or the same amount of die-cast parts. So here, let's discuss the differences, or if it has been done, supply me a link, please!



    Picture Request

    By OneAngryDwrf,

    Hey All!



    I wondering if you guys could help me out. I recall a few months back before the MP Prime was released, that a someone had taken apart Prime's head and removed the faceplate, revealing Prime's mouth and such. While I just got the 20th Anniversary Prime, I am a little hesitant to take his head apart so I can see the mouth.


    Does anyone have a pic of Prime's head without the faceplate? Any help in the matter would be most appreciated.

    Hasbro Q & A Update For 2-6-04

    By Silverbolt,

    Hasbro has updated it's Q & A section for the week of 2-6-04, this time answering many questions concerning future toy releases stateside in the US. The answers are as follows:



    Q: Is there a packaging error with the ENERGON DIVEBOMB toys? Many have been found with handles on both ENERGON weapons and others only with one handle and one blade.


    A: The US version of DIVEBOMB will continue to be shipped with handles on both pieces of the ENERGON weapons. The versions with one handle and one blade were a small launch production and will not be available going forward.



    Q: Hasbro mentioned on the December 1, 2003 news posting that the TRANSFORMERS ENERGON OPTIMUS PRIME’S face-plate will be changing to more closely match the program animation. When will this variation be available in stores and what changes should one look for to ensure purchase of the modified version?


    A: The OPTIMUS PRIME with updated face-plate will be recognizable by a code embossed onto the package. Please look for an embossed 40331 on the back of the package if you want to make sure you are purchasing the updated version of OPTIMUS PRIME.


    Boxes without any code may be either version.



    Q: Does the running change not happening with WHEELJACK affect the changed POWERLINX THRUST (in red, instead of the tan/blue of the one on shelves right now) since they were rumored to be shipping together?


    A: We were hoping to be able to release the red THRUST in ARMADA, but were unable to make the change in time. We do hope to be able to release this item at some point in the future.



    Q: On the sides of some ENERGON packaging, there are four symbols: the gear shape around the AUTOBOT symbol. Depending on the toy, a different symbol is emphasized. Are these references to price point? If not, what do they refer to?


    A: This gear shape around the AUTOBOT logo is our new POWERLINX symbol. This symbol and the term POWERLINX indicates that these characters can combine when in robot mode. You can combine figures with POWERLINX symbols of the same color.



    Q: When is the ALTERNATORS line going to be in stores? 20th Anniversary OPTIMUS PRIME?


    A: Both of these items are currently shipping and are beginning to appear in stores now!



    Q: Are there any plans to release the deluxe sized OPTIMUS PRIME shown in a recent Takara catalog with the Kicker figure? Does this deluxe OPTIMUS PRIME combine with MEGATRON at all?


    A: These items are not currently in our ENERGON plans. They may eventually be released as exclusives.

    Do you have Tech Specs?

    By BotCollector,

    As a crazed Transformers fanatic, I have made several versions of Tech Specs for myself, Botcollector as an entity, and most of the staff. I LOOOOVE having Tech Specs for myself and everything I'm associated with. Tech Specs are cool, and are a quintessential part of Transformers lore and toys for me.


    Has anyone on here made some for themselves, or would like to put some thought into what they should be? We're talkin' function, motto, the whole bit. Here's a little tiny pic of the ones I made for Botcollector, but I'm going to be redoing them, and I'll get them on here soon if there's any interest or participation in this topic (I used the Beast Wars format because it was inthe middle of the super-ass awesome plot unfolding part on the cartoon, and I was crazy about it. The new ones will bethe old-school format, because I dig those a lot more).



    We need a new Bumblebee!

    By Donkeystyle,

    Am I the only one who is DESPERATE for a Bumblebee binalternator? I can think of no autobot I would rather see updated, and Bumblebee would be sweet in a new-era VW Beetle design!

    Universe Varient

    By Trailfollower,

    OK I was at my local Wal Mart tonight when I saw something rather odd. I had to look twice but the newer boxes for Universe figures are narrower and have smaller writing than the older dust covered shelf sitters. I probably would not have noticed except that the old and new boxes were side by side on the shelf. The new boxes are almost a full 1" and 1/2 narrower. Not that it's a big deal but if you are a completest, figured I through this out there.
