  1. Got my Ironhide :tfdance :yay :tfdance :yay :tfdance :yay :tfdance :yay
  2. I luvs my Yamatos. I only have 2 1/48 Valks, the Roy S and Hikaru A... I'm hoping that once I get some money going this year I'll get the Max/Milia/Hikaru J-models and maybe the Low Viz II A-type with some GBP armor. Of course there's also the YF-19 w/Fold Booster, the SV-51, the Shin VF-0A w/Ghost Booster.... I need more money. And shelf space.
  3. Super Wal-Mart What, you've never heard Wal-Mart called Wally World?
  4. I have official confirmation from the DeKalb IL Super Wally's toy dept. supervisor that they WILL have TF movie toys available at midnight June 1/2.
  5. Well. I'm house-sitting for my bro in Sycamore right now, and the DeKalb Target and Wally have zip. There's an arch up at Wally but only protoforms. I'll be here on June 2nd, so I may as well hang out at Wally and see what I can get when the clock strikes midnight.... I'm holding out on Bee and barricade til the 2-pack arrives. I can only burn about $40 right now so I have to choose my targets carefully....
  6. Target on Addison in Chicago has movie deluxes out today. I got Bonecrusher and my GF bought Jazz for me; they also had Swindle, Barricade, Brawl, and one '74 Bumblebee (though he has the mold variation that's caused some breakage).
  7. Why? I don't like the pseudo-magic shrinky-dink idea and I don't think it belongs in the movie and there's nothing you can say to change my mind. It's a cartoon gimmick whose only purpose would be to provide certain fanboys (such as yourself) with wanking material. Give it a rest already.
  8. Which, in TF:TM, he had to send his minions out to destroy the Autobot City antenna in order to do. What an effective master of communications he is! I bow before his almighty power! Seriously, this is pointless. Tramp is just looking for any Goddamned reason to satisfy his Soundwave fetish. You want to know why I don't want mass-shifting in the movies, Tramp? Because it looks like it belongs in a cartoon. Ever seen that little bumper sequence the Sci-Fi Channel uses, where the girl drives the pickup truck up to a parking space, and the truck opens around her, folding up into a littl
  9. Dammit, THERE IS NO F*CKING STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE ENTIRE CARTOON FROM START TO FINISH WAS A TOY COMMERCIAL! IT COULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY KINDERGARDENERS!!!!!!!!! THAT'S WHO IT WAS AIMED AT! (slams head against wall) WHY (BANG!) CAN'T (BANG!) YOU (BANG!) GET (BANG!) THAT (BANG!) THROUGH (BANG!) YOUR (BANG!) HEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT THE CARTOON AND NEVER WILL BE!!!!!! JESUS CHRIST ON A POGO STICK! DID YOU HOUND YOUR CO LIKE THIS IN THE ARMY? HE WOULD HAVE KICKED YOUR ASS!!!!! GIVE IT A REST!
  10. You were in the human Army. You're not a damn alien robot that would likely have most of the on-demand comm gear they would need built into their own bodies. And I've got news for you--the Army is moving in that direction too! Ever heard of Land Warrior? The project whose aim is to make the individual soldier practically a squad in his own right, at least in terms of information-sharing technology? Communications, digital terrain mapping, GPS navigation, instant updates on the positions of his teammates and other friendly units plus the movements of known enemies based on real-time satell
  11. Christ, what are you, ten? Have you not heard of Wi-Fi? Soundwave could simply transmit it directly to whatever medium his fellow Cons have built into their bodies. Jeez.
  12. Tramp, seriously, it's over. Doesn't matter how many times you repeat the same thing or how often you've watched Murphy's interviews. The number of retcon explanations you've got ready to cut & paste is insignificant. There is no reason for mass-shifting. It just doesn't fit into a mainstream-oriented movie. Please, let it die, because you're starting to piss people off and I don't really want Pete to hurt me for saying what I really, really want to say to you. Get over it. It ain't G1. New 'verse, some old characters in new forms, some old concepts, but overall it's new. Take it
  13. Tramp, dude, give it up. Your whole argument breaks down to one thing: G1 purism. This movie is NOT the G1 cartoon. It is NOT War Within. It is NOT the Marvel comics. It is NOT Armada/Energon/Cybertron. It is NOT Beast Wars. It's something new, based on the success of the brand, that borrows from what came before, and yet will stand alone and totally kick ass. The original Takara toy Soundwave was based on didn't mass-shift; his robot mode was the exact same size as the tape deck he turned into. Hasbro, wanting to make the character more impressive as (GASP!)
  14. Tramp's point is based on the fact that the stereo mode is essential to Soundwave's function as a communications officer for the 'Cons. If the alt. mode is, in fact, essential for a Transformer to perform his specialized function, how does an ambulance help Ratchet with his functions? If you can't make a case for Ratchet needing to be an ambulance to fix robots, then it is harder to make a case for Soundwave needing to be a stereo. If Ratchet can repair robots without turning into something that would help with that (say, a tow truck of some kind) why does Soundwave need to be a stereo?
  15. Ya know, I' never went to film school BUT I have done over 4 years of radio. Just as film has rules about wasting time on exposition, so too does radio have a rule: You're talking to 100,000 people. If you say something that only maybe 100 of them actually understand, and have to stop and explain, you've failed. Tramp, this movie is NOT FOR US. It's meant for the MILLIONS of movie-goers around the world who may never even have heard of Transformers before, or whose only impressions come from vague memories of their childhoods and humorous references in other media.
