    edit: On the topic of SWTFs: There are now 3 different size classes. The new ones are Class I, which are basics/scouts more or less, the $15 ones are Class II, and the giant Darth Vader into the Star Destroyer is Class III.

    edit edit: Andy Schmidt was responsible for bringing back Bucky.

    on the cyberverse commanders topic I adore Ironhide. He compresses like an animated deluxe, and his weapons can do so damn much. I've got icepick using his combined cannons as a grenade launcher.

    speaking of icepick just realized I haven't even taken the human out of the tray. halo mega bloks are the perfect size and so much more fun.

    Oooh man, I really wish I could've gone to botcon...especially if the Prime cast is gonna be there. I have a copy of Knights of the Old Republic I'd wanna get signed by Kevin Michael Richardson. How often do they make you pay for autographs at this con?

    I really hope Bay doesn't get booed when he recieves his award. That's gonna be more embarassing for the fandom then anyone else.

    Just to help egg Lupis on more, I think there's a good contingent of people (myself included), that think Cyberverse Powerglide is the best classics Powerglide there is :p

    If that happens, things could still go well. Michael Bay could totally ride it to cut a heel promo on the crowd and then hit one of the other guests with a steel chair.

    Oh, sure, no offense to those who like the gold Bumblebee, but no apologies for your mocking of Crankstart.

    If The Rock was there it would be golden.

    As for the DotM toy talk, I can offer some insight on Skids. He isn't terrible, but articulation-wise he's not as good as RotF Skids. His vehicle mode is pretty much the same size, transformation is way better and height in robot mode is actually a bit more accurate since the Twins aren't that big (Leo came up to just under their chest.)

    Articulation is indeed weird. His arms aren't on balljoints, but pins and hinges. He can pose well enough. His legs also lack knee articulation as a way to act as a balance. Overall though, he's not terrible. Heck I wouldn't even say he's bad. Mudflap looks like he'll have different articulation, specifically ball shoulders and knees.

    I really agree with the fact that the Rock would make a very interesting guest at botcon.

    Vangelus mentioned how Icepick has no face, but my examination of the toy seems to reveal a very skeletal face underneath. It definitely seems to have eyes, and it also looks like it has very exaggerated jawbone gaps you see on skulls (by which I mean, the point on the jaw where the teeth end and there's an open gap between the teeth and the connection point between the upper and lower jawbones).

    Though this could simply be part of the mold for structional purposes, kind of akin to the back of Cyberverse Megatron's head, and not a face at all. But personally I like the idea that under that goalie mask lies a ghostly skullface of the damned.

    UPDATE: I dun picturefied the effect
