    Slugslinger looks so good, that deco's much more appealing to me than the Hasbro one. I wonder why they switched the waist pieces on Misfire and him though?

    I'm annoyed at how much I'm liking Perceptor as well. He hadn't really caught my eye originally, buuuut, I might have to ditch the RTS one after all.

    That's strange. Wonder why they would do that. Just to differentiate the TR and LG versions some more?

    Regardless of some people's supposed/potential motivations, that does not disqualify anyone else's opinions on the inappropriateness of some of the material.

    Regardless of said opinions, it doesn't change the fact that it's inappropriate to discuss them here as the subject in question violates TOS. Really not hard to understand.

    Say, "I don't like this," and move on. Getting into anything further is just asking for moderator involvement. Yet again.

    What part violates the TOS? It's not discussing politics...
    And if discussing the material that comes with the toy itself violates the TOS, than you're saying (in your opinion) that the material in fact does exactly what the detractors say it does. I thought the argument some were making was that in fact it wasn't something that would be offensive, which would mean it's not violating TOS - but you seem to be debunking that argument with the claim that it's a violation...

    You know very well what I'm talking about but I PMed you for clarification just in case you're really not understanding what I'm getting at and not just being purposefully obtuse. Feel free to continue the conversation in PM so we're not going off-topic here.

    Can confirm that TR Slugslinger (left) does have the same waist piece as LG Misfire (center), compared to the different waist on TR Misfire (right). So LG Slugslinger should have the same molded waist piece as TR Misfire. Good catch.

    Pretty sweet that there's 2 options for the Takara Fort Max now; the "Headmasters" cartoon head that came with it and the "Rebirth" version that comes with Bumblebee.

    Don't forget, I have a thread dedicated just for posting/discussing the Legends comics: NEW LEGENDS TOYS-COMIC SCANS
    which has become more of an archive for comics starting with the Targetmaster storyline...

    They aren't it's just a weird angle making the back of BB's Titanmaster seat look like the windows being black.

    Now we know why Misfire had Slugslinger's crotch - because he doesn't! Pretty cool.

    That Cerebros is amazing. They just make me smile, what else can I say about TakaraTomy.
