  1. The folks commenting over at the TFSource Facebook page must be the most blindly cheerful people on the face of the Earth. They like anything. LOL.

      oh wow, I like your comment Mikeprime, keep up the fantasric work dude, you rock!

  2. A lady's version of Die Hard is on Lifetime Network right now.

      hahaha. what!?

  3. Was there ever supposed to be Transformers United Windcharger? No online store that sells Japanese Transformers has a pre-order for one.

    1. Sparkless


      nothing was ever announced abotu Windcharger coming out in Japan

  4. If there was an Encore Devastator or Reflector from Takara Tomy, I wish someone had told me. I don't think that anyone chooses a KO over an official version of the same toy. The KO is usually something that isn't available officially, something that is available officially but of lesser quality, or a partly or wholly original product based on an established brand.
  5. It turns out that there will not be a KO Fortress Maximus. KOToys posted this: The G1 KO Maker basically just lied again this year as he did last year. We at KOToys apologize for the amount of excitement he caused. We will only post in hand news from this Manufacturer from now one as he is not dependable and can be tricky again THERE WILL NOT BE A FORT MAX THIS YEAR, the RELEASES WILL BE ABOMINUS AND COMPUTRON Although WE want a FORT MAX, YOU WANT a FORT MAX - stick with us and u can get the three + in time again we apologize for his lack of understanding and empathy, we will only post in hand news regarding this manufacturer from now on.
  6. Maybe, but the usual thinking behind these KO prices is, "Hey, the original MISB costs a lot more." I doubt that the KO Fort Max will sell out.
  7. From the KOToys.com forum: YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED, WE ASKED, THEY LISTENED ! G1 KO Reissue FORT MAX Update « on: February 09, 2011, 02:43:33 AM » An update regarding G1 KO REissues Since everyone here asked for FORT MAX, we inquired and told them that people are really begging for FORT MAX. Well u ask, you shall receive. FORT MAX HAS BEEN MOVED AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. He will be made FIRST Ahead of both ABOMINUS and COMPUTRON (actually i think both abominus and max were in the first stages) So, there will be all 3 versions of FORT MAX, the retail price will be around 300$ US. Both Abominus and Computron will now be delayed until AFTER FORT MAX. Stickers for all 3 have already been made. FORT MAX ETA - 6 months from Today - August, or before August. I will absolutely buy this. Then again, after reading the shipping cost, I might not.
  8. MP Rodimus Prime has arrived.

      Lucky! - if not for this stupid storm I would have mine today also.

    2. Hip-Hoptimus Rime

      Hip-Hoptimus Rime

      If not for my mortgage I would have him too!

      JEALOUS! I want one soooooooo bad!


  9. Thank you Blitz-Wing for locking that stupid WFC/Exodus/Prime thread.

  10. They are in China, where Copyright enforcement isn't that strict on Chinese companies copying non-Chinese products. Anyways, Lego lost a legal case recently protecting their brick design, and technically it doesn't say "Optimus Prime" and it doesn't have an Autobot symbol... so Hasbro can't say much about some red and blue block robot. Still, if Hasbro and Lego got together and released the "real thing" with this design in the US for about $25-30, I bet it would sell. They should do the fair thing and copy the design from Kazi right back! I don't know if official Lego Transformers would be as good as these. Most licensed Lego products seem to have a lot pre-made parts, requiring little assembly.
  11. That Jetfire looks a lot better than the Leader class toy.
  12. Like I said in my post, I don't think anyone was going to sing the praises of Bumblemus for posting that schedule. If anyone assumed it was his, then that's their business, but most news posted here comes from somewhere else and I think most of us know that.

  13. I got a G1 Brainstorm today and the hip joints were locked up. The legs almost couldn't move. I sprayed the joint with WD-40 and now they work like new.

      Careful dude, that stuff can damage some plastics... which you would already know by now if it damaged yours... but you know... just case :)

  14. I once had the normal-sized version of the Doubledealer knock-off. It was crap.
  15. These vintage knock-offs are neat. I wish that company in China that makes G1 knock-offs would have the decency to package them in original boxes like the vintage ones had.
  16. Why? These toys are usually between $15-17 each.
  17. This is good news. I wonder if they'll make Astrotrain in G1 toy colors or G1 cartoon colors? They'll probably do both.
  18. So, does anything extra come with the set or is TFSource just lying to get people to buy their add-on kit?
  19. I tried Roadbots once. They're lousy. I did get them in a similar BBTS clearance sale, so didn't feel bad about throwing them into the recycling can

  20. Speaking of KO's, Big Lots has some more for their Fall reset. I saw the usual yellow Constructicons and the Protectobots. They have two packs of Aerialbots. A three pack of what appear to be one Energon Aerialbot and what are probably two Robotmasters jets; I'm not sure on that, though. There are also those transforming insect robots, which aren't really KO's. Walgreen's has Roadbot KO's. Two large ones, same bot but in different colors. There are also some nice looking smaller robots, three different characters. They look to be about the size of a deluxe Transformer.
  21. Fix? I don't even have one yet. I probably won't either, since I'm waiting for the inevitable repaints. Anyway, elbows that bend the other way? :tflaugh How very G1.
  22. I've de-hauled today. I returned my voyager movie Megatron. I had him for a couple of weeks but the damned thing is just not good enough.
  23. I found leader class Brawl today as well as G1 colors movie Starscream. I found G1 color Jazz a couple of days ago. The colors on the Jazz toy are superior to the gray used in the movie.
  24. What parallel universe is that in?
