    i Like the digibashes considering the fact that Takara is giving us nothing. There’s only so much discussion about the price or the accessories that can happen before it gets repetitive. My advice to people who don’t like scrolling through this and are just looking for news, just check the news section instead

    Well, I'm going to stand by the fact that this all unnecessarily spiraled because of misunderstanding and miscommunication, but will also concede that I contributed negatively to it in an effort to let us all move on. I made a general - also what I thought completely harmless - comment days ago stating that I thought only about 4-5 digi's in this thread were relevant that was in no way pointed at any specific user or any specific picture. Guess the timing of that post looked like it could have been passive aggressively pointed at someone, though. Never my intention, and my apologies if that is how it looked. Days later, I get a snarky response that I thought was overly defensive to which I responded in kind. That made the situation worse. But even though I then also negatively contributed to things, I still felt I had to defend myself because I couldn't see how there was anything I said prior that could make anyone feel singled out. Right or wrong, I don't think some people were properly reading what I said how I intended it, and then of course it just kept going to hell from there.

    But beyond ^ that final attempt at some clarity and admission of not helping matter, that's all I'm saying on it after this... even though I'm sure a few will choose to keep going.

    Hahah, oh I’m all for it - except when it’s used as a convenient defence for explicit vitriol and hatred. I see so much of that backwards and forwards rubbish on other social media and I’d really hate for things to get political in here. ;)

    Why do people argue this much over toy robots? SMH. If the topic gets you this bent outta shape, turn off your internet stuff and go play with your kids or something important.

    It’s not so much singling anyone out, it’s just the general miserable git douchery of complaining about people creating pictures and posting them on a hobby forum in 2018 that has incited a few negative responses. I mean seriously, the loading times actually waste significant of your time, or you can’t just scroll past? Come on!

    I briefly had in mind a suitably sarcasm laced response of my own suggesting you look into the modern innovations of broadband internet and mice with scroll wheels as a solution to your frustration, but thought better of it :) .

    Anyone who’s genuinely stuck on 56k dial-up and without a wheel-mouse, I can begin to see something of a point. Anyone without such first world problems simply has no businesss complaining about pictures on a forum and their load times. You’re free to do so of course, but prepare to be called out/ridiculed in response just as you’ve experienced.

    Keep the digibashes coming! The more ‘invalid’ the better! :)  And yes I have this very discourse to thank for educating me that digibashes can be valid or not (or perhaps it’s a scale with degrees of partial validity?). There was me thinking it was all just people having fun on a hobby forum - silly me! :)

    Talk about Snowflake city central!? Welcome to today's internet where if you don't agree with the consensus/popular opinion you'll be chased out of the forums by the mob, sheesh! Get off Incepticon's nuts already! The man had something unflattering to say about all those random digibashes which mostly act as clickbait, get over it, not everyone is going to enjoy or agree with everything you do. Maybe you should heed your own advice and not pay that much attention to his post(s) if they bother you that much!?

    People have the right to post digibashes.

    And people have the right to complain.

    And people have the right to complain about the complainers.

    And people have the right to complain about the complainers complainers about complaining.

    And people have the right to complain about those complaining about the complainers complaining.

    And people even have the right to make dumb lists like this.

    But every step down the list just gets dumber and sadder (including this post, probably). So let’s stop?





    Has anyone figured out where the doors end up in alt-mode, and the sides of the truck? I can see where the front parts and roof all go, but can’t figure out exactly how the doors fold up. I assume the bottom section of the steps and the gas tanks might fold out from the legs. I really wonder if the front wheels will fold in the same way as MPs 1 and 10 too. Domething about it all looks different.

    I have been racking my brain on this all week. I can't see any seamlines in the doors or sides that give clues about folding and that central vertical pin seems to run the entire height of them, so I don't think they have any horizontal folds. So they look too big to me to be stored in the backpack; all I can think is that they rotate into the central interior of the torso somehow and go all the way from his waist to near his head (on the inside).

    I’m curious about the matrix. Think they’ll make it the same size so it still fits Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus? Those are two of my newest figures and I’d have to sell mp10 to afford v3. If hate to lose that matrix if the new one is different

    Yeah, all we have is that vertical pin that folds the sides of the truck in half. I wondered if the rounded top we're seeing here is somehow the top of the door

    But looking at the door again I don't know if it's that rounded anyway. And anyway, what about the part above the truck door, that's all attached to the same panel.


    I guess with so much of the truck folding away into the backpack (the front and roof and bumper), it's reasonable enough to assume that two truck sides could fit folded in there. But then what about the wheels?



    I also wonder how much the shape of the torso changes in between transformation to truck mode. Like, in what orientation is everything sitting behind those truck windows. Is the matrix still in the same position, just behind the 'shoulder/neck-area' flaps, or has it completely moved to the bottom like MP-1 and 10.

    I seriously don't understand how where you're getting the term "Snowflake" from. Even though I disagree with its usage in general, you're not even using it correctly. The term "Snowflake" is usually used to mock those who attempt to be unique solely to be unique. You're literally using it in the exact opposite context than was intended. Also, fun fact: the term was coined by the author Chuck Palahniuk in his book: Fight Club, a book written as a critique of toxic masculinity. Those who use it are inadvertently using the same verbiage as a parody of themselves. Just wanted to throw that out there...
