    Hey, Did you guys know that the human that comes with the Beast Hunters Bumblebee Kre-O set is none other than Captain "This is why I hate machines!" Fanzone?
    He even has a mustache!

    Not enough to make me want the set(Kicker is more appealing), but I'm loving the character choices they're doing now.

    Voyager Grimwing's colors, head, and general transformation is reminding me a lot of Waspinator. I can't get it out of my head.

    Also, when I saw Strika, I whipped up my idea for Obsidian. In my mind, Obsidian has always been a helicopter, and can never be anything else. But maybe that's just me.

    Yeah, sorry to hear about Andyroo. I hope that things will turn out well there.

    Hmm... are you guys sure Hasbro's only made a hundred grand on Transformers before? I thought they made a hundred mil? There's a bunch of zeros in brackets to indicate the graph's talking in thousands no? Of course, this is just revenue. It's probably just a gross figure.

    I don't think you can blame the third party forum regulars over the talk over Voyager Springer and Defender. It seemed like the anti-third party guys came in trolling with "There, take that third party guys! You wasted your money on Defender!". Most third party fans were happy with their purchase, and will happily own BOTH figures soon.

    In fact a lot of the anti-3P people seemed to be trolling with "is Hasbro trying to kill third parties" because they actuall make good G1-era homages for a change. To that I sorta chuckled. third party companies will thrive by making accessories for these Generations toy in whatever feature was left out - be it a trailer for Orion Pax, or a Slammer and Sixgun for Metroplex.

    As for qualms with Generations Metroplex - he seems like they stretched the legs JUST to make it a couple inches taller than Fort Max. If they had made it in G1 Metroplex proportions he would either be shorter or wider.

    It's also not downloading from iTunes. I'm guessing there might be a problem with the servers, I was going to give it time and try latter.

    I've been very happy with my Defender purchase, but I'm getting the official Springer and I'll probably put Defender up for sale. Nothing against the figure, but it's one glaring weakness is his ability to simply stand up straight. If Springer can manage that, he's got the edge as the better figure.

    Plus he's Last Stand of the Wreckers Springer. Which is pretty cool.
