  1. :tflaugh Was this G2 Darkwing, or the Beast Wars II Starscream & BB release? It was a repaint of G2 Darkwing and Smokescreen as a new form for G2 Megatron and Starscream, later repainted in BWII Starscream and BB, and even later repainted into Gigant Bomb and Smokejumper (Smokesniper, heard it both ways) I know the history of the figure. ;) Forgot the RiD versions Dreadwind & Smokejumper, though. I was just curious if this custom was done with the G2 set, or the BWII set as I've heard the BWII set is near identical to the cancelled Megatron & Starscream release, with an exception of the Predacon symbols. Derp. It is the BWII one. Just remembered the G2 guys were blue / blue camo. :redface

  3. I seem to recall somewhere reporting Aaron Archer hated the Robot Masters line, when someone asked him about possibility of domestic release (which would majorly affect release, as he was the head of US Transformers team at the time.) Hasbro did plan on releasing WST Soundwave as an accessory to a redeco Energon Megatron (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Megatron_%28Armada%29/toys#Energon ), but the entire product was cancelled.
  4. They did that for years. Hasbro opted to start shipping them in robot mode when they were seeing a better reaction to the figures in bot mode, than when in the alternate modes.
  5. Wal-Marts here carried them for a spell, too. However, I don't think these are actually slated for US release as the Tomica line is handled by Tomy, not Hasbro. (Though, I still think Hasbro's "Speed Stars" was testing the waters for Tomy to release Tomica domestically, so I could be wrong. :shrug ) I'm more curious about the other cars in the line. Have they been shown off?
  6. Voted "yes" as well. As Hellscream said, they're being sold separate from the bigger figures.
  7. Mirage Fighters looks like Beast Wars Scorponok, a little bit. :tflaugh
  8. Nice! They're fun little kits. I think I tried cleaning out BBTS when they had them on a clearance sale. :tflaugh (just a warning, though. some sockets don't like to keep ahold of the balljoints. I built a little mini-custom, and it's limbs kept popping out of the sockets. XD )
  9. Yay! Welcome to the geneblock addiction! :thumb Who's carrying them, these days?

    I use Intermetro shelving components for my collection: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/shelvingSale/interMetroreg/bestSellingSolutions The only thing is I can't seem to get the pipe sleeves to properly grip to get all the shelves to appear level. :( but that's what holds the majority of my collection.
  11. It's Armada....Skywarp, I think. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Skywarp_(Armada)
  12. I'm sure he requires a dinner and maybe some wine first. a romantic movie might help, too. :tflaugh Serious answer, take Shockwave to a hardware store like lowes or home depot. I was switching some chrome plastic knobs on an organizer with some nice metal ones. Only problem was the screws that came with the metal knobs were too long, and the plastic knobs' threading was too thick. (good lord, if that isn't an opening for a "That's what she said" or two, I don't know what is.) Ended up taking the long ones down to Lowe's in search of bolts or replacement screws. They had a board where you could plug your screws in and figure out the size threading you need.
  13. Doh! I was hoping Takara'd release these as part of Arms Micron. (Jazz could of been a Stepper release easy. Optimus could of worked as Nemesis/Scourge/Black Convoy.)
  14. I like the deco, but the headsculpt is certainly scaring me off. (That and/or Slipstream needs to learn how to apply her makeup. Dat Lipstick. Yikes.)
  15. I'm kind of glad we're getting Bluestreak, instead of Prowl. Between a Prime Prowl and Rescue Bots Chase might be an overkill on police bots in one universe, for the time being. :tflaugh
  16. I like the idea of this as being a DLC add-on. That's something I hope High Moon will do, and slip out some extended / additional missions via DLC.
  17. Hum. I was tempted to get a set of these in regular deco for kitbashing purposes, but the price put me off them (especially since I wanted to do up an entire team. :tflaugh ) Price is still a bit off-putting, but props to BTS for trying something different with the material. (Since I'm in a bit of an Fall of Cybertron Audio Log collecting trip, if a 3rd Party wanted to do up a cassette Minion deco'd up as an FOC Audio Log, I might buy it.) Edit: Remind me next time when I can't sleep not to look at toys with questioning interest. Preordered this set and ordered the Yin & Yang deco(So G2!) set. The lounging pic sold me. :redface
  18. Not sure about the majority of the suggested, but if FunPub does SG Vehicons, I think it'd be fitting if they did a red and white deco as homage to Fastlane and Cloudraker.
  19. If it's PS3, you go to the PSN store and redeem the code. (at least, that's how it worked when I redeemed a preorder code for a game on the Sony Vita. Can't imagine it being any different on the PS3)
  20. Yes! I loved the pummeling section. I'm pretty sure I had a good mad cackle and ear to ear grin after that scene.
  21. The picture attachments are currently broken. You'll have to use a 3rd party hosting like Photobucket or Flickr to display them. :thumb
  22. They're in a Display box like the Lego & Mega Bloks packs, though I think it might depend on store. The Target near by has started hanging Lego/Mega Bloks blindpacks on pegs.
  23. Yesterday's haul turned out to be a good one! Target: Cyberverse Commander: Ultra Magnus Dreadwind Wal-Mart: Kreon Micro-Change: Scorponok Crankstart Sunstorm Waspinator Cyberverse Legion: Flamewar Hyperspeed Wheeljack Cyberverse Commander: Nightwatch Optimus Prime Lego Hero Factory: XT-4 Thornaxx
  24. Here's my BBTS pile o' loot haul. Kabaya Gum Plus Transformers DX Fortress Maximus Series - Box of 5 Transformers Prime Arms Micron - Bag of 10 Pieces AMW01 Arms Micron A AMW02 Arms Micron B AMW03 Arms Micron C AMW04 Arms Micron Shell 2 AMW05 Arms Micron Baro 2 AMW06 Arms Micron Jiro 2
