  1. I'm no wuss,please try to debate in ways that don't insult others. I refuse to debate further as you've ruined the mood via a insult. Dear god, I wasnt saying it to you directly. I wasn't trying to insult you. I was trying to say in a non-offensive way to people in general (without medical conditions) who complain about common dust to man up. But your last comment just shows me that you really are a wuss. So man up. And your statement is ironic because you claim to not be a wuss, but you came off as a really defensive wuss. Calling people insult names & flame baiting here is a direct violation of the rules here. rather than reply to you. I reported this entire reply to the staff of moderators/admins.
  2. imho below: I'm glad i'm not interested in the three first wave FOC figures. as this saves me time,money & frustration not having to hunt these toys down in stores. Had FOC Shockwave been voyager or ultra size,then it would have been a must buy. I never liked the FOC deluxe optimus toy design. it reminds me of the marvels cross-overs hulk toy that transformed into a tank. while I love the FOC deluxe jazz toy mold. their is only so many homage molds based off the same character that I can justify adding in my collection. I don't need nor want 12+homage toys based off the same character.

  4. here's hoping tru.com does a pre-order or has this listing on their site in decent volume.
  5. imho below: I love the newer head sculpt,it looks dark & evil,even though he's a good buy. the colors look decent on this mold. it's a great recolor with a awesome new head sculpt. Sadly I already own two color variations/persona's/head sculpts based off this mold. which are inferno & grapple. I just can't justify owning a 3rd color variation of this mold. I'm not a fan of buying combiner team members with the combiner tech not their.
  6. imho below: I agree with this reply. $60 is a lot easier for some to afford than the curent secondary market price for The Takara version.

    Size Matters?

    IMHO Below: Everything is on a flucuation size scale. due to each new mold being unique. for the creative process to work TF toys need to flucuate in their size clasess. it's called creative freedom for the designers. nothing has dipped below the flucuation,so their is no shrinkage. basics/commanders flucuate from 3 to 4.5 inches. deluxes flucuate from 5 to 6 inches. Voyagers flucuate from 5.5 to 7.5 inches. leaders flucuate from 8 to 11.5 inches. Some want examples of smaller TF toys in their sizes from the past years/lines. 2006 Classics 1.0 rodimus was small. Armada deluxe Demolisher had a short robot mode. armada thrust had a short robot mode. Energon basic size arcee was tiny in both modes. animated had a few small TF toys in their size levels like voyager & leader size bulkhead. voyager size lugnutz. deluxe size swoop. deluxe size snarl. voyager size combined robot mode safe guard. Generations/RTS Thunderwing/Skyshadow was a tiny/short deluxe. generations/rts darkmount & hailstrom were short deluxe robots. armada smokecreen from head to toe minus his crane in robot mode was a short deluxe. Energon towline was a short robot deluxe even combined to his back vechicle part in super robot mode. Energon combiner robot leader optimus was shorter in height compared to armada combiner leader size optimus in super robot mode. cybertron deluxe defense hotshot & deluxe thunderblast was small robot modes for their size classes. DOTM $29.99 HA Topspin Target store exclusive was a short robot mode.
  8. imho below: Hasbro has a poor/bad track record for aiming the TF supreme sized Toys at kids under the age of 4. by simplifying the transforming. toddler frindly colors. super heavy/strong play school tonka plastic. lower/less sculpt on the molds. thus far we have received 12 supreme/ultimate sized TF toys & only two look like they were meant for teenagers/adults which are unicron & primus. I want a leader sized FOC Generations metroplex toy. because hasbro aims the leader sized toys for a older age group like teenagers & adults. the transformations are more complex. higher sculpt & older kids colors. Supreme & Leader sized TF toys both come with electronics lights & sounds. Since the Generations toys come in the smaller size classes of basics & deluxes. by default a leader sized FOC Metroplex will be huge & gigantic in toy scale next to deluxes,basics & legends generations toys.

  10. I Agree with others in this thread. I welcome the newer improved MP seeker mold being used for Hasbro TRU MP Thundercracker. Honestly it's a retool. it's not a brand new mold. 90% of the original mold is still their. who cares it their's some newer parts. most of those newer parts look decent & don't ruin the toy's look. As long I can buy this for under $70 then that's all I care about. I'm not about to get upset about the re-tooled parts & spend quadruple+shipping fees for the takara MP Thundercracker version. If I had over $300 to spend on MP Thundercracker. then I'd rather buy four hasbro versions verses only being able to buy one takara version.
  11. IMHO Below: I want a 3rd party G-1 styled galvatron that is the same size scale as his rival faction leader MP-09 Rodimus & MP-10 Convoy. these 3rd party TF toys claim to be on par with MP TF toys. so wanting Xtransbot G-1 Galvatron to be in size scale with MP-09 rodimus makes sense & doesn't make xtransbot galvatron over sized. Giant is the accurate size scale. hercules is over sized in all it's modes. I don't want nor need my TF combiners to be the same exact supreme toy size scale as AEC Unicron & Primus. Hedgemon was clearly made under sized. to want other 3rd party TF toys to be under sized just seems wrong/awful/un-fair. for what it's worth when unicron rebuilt megatron into galvatron. the galvatron body was more powerful,bigger & had more energy. so it makes sense for a new mold G-1 galvatron to be a toy size bigger than a new g-1 megatron toy. Having a 3rd party G-1 Galvatron being leader sized is by no means Over sized. as it's in perfect scale with AEC Leader sized toys & MP Leader sized toys.
  12. imho below: I blame the poor distribution problems on takara & hasbro releasing the TFP toys at the same exact time world wide. the manufactoring factories over seas can only handle so many orders. in the past their was a lag time where the usa got stuff 3 months before/first then takara got newer stuff 3 months afterwards or vice versa. to make matters worse the UK,Canada,austrailia & the china region are all getting newer TF prime toys the same exact time america & japan is. so their is bound to be over loads at the factories over seas causing delays in product world wide. Second,I blame the various theathre movies this spring/summer for the reason for TF Prime toy dealays in america. Hasbro has the movie toy rights to avengers,battle ship,G.I joe & other movie toy lines. Hasbro is infamous for putting non-movie lines on hold & making movie toy lines the top priority. the delays for TF Prime toys in this situation are most likely either manufactoring delays. or trucks running thru the states being over loaded with movie toy lines. while the TFP toys sit in a wharehouse somewhere waiting for their turn when the movie toys hype dies down enough for the TF Prime toys to now get loaded on to the trucks from the wharehouse where the TFP toys have been sitting all this time. I'm seriously wondering if the delay in newer TFP toys. was done on purpose to cash in on the christmas season holiday months in america. as stores order more newer product & order less older product. Maybe,only TRU was interested in these MP TF toys,asian exclusives & other exclusives. for all we know hasbro might have tried to ask walmart,target & kmart to carry MP TF toys,asian exclusives & so forth but they all said no. yeah I agree that TRU is the worse store to have TF exclusives. but sometimes something is better than nothing. The FE TF toy line barely started a few months ago in march. don't you think it's a bit early to say this particular toy will never,ever get released by hasbro in america.
  13. You don't have the G2 colors by default.... You get the code for the G2 skin for Bruticus when you pre-order the Fall Of Cybertron game from Amazon.com I realize what code skins are. Those who have the code G-2 Skins,have G-2 Bruticus now in game colors. which makes their Amazon/bbts FOC G-2 Bruticus toys now in video game colors.
  14. I'm thinking this started off as a custom. then someone gave the custom toy or pics to a 3rd party company. similar in fashion to what happened to the fan custom cone head MP seekers that some fan gave pics/toy to igear & now we've got 3rd party MP conhead seekers.
