    Finally something worthwhile to entertain me tonight. :) 

    Mighty Muggs coming back, eh? lol I think they need to stay the way of the Dodo.

    Gonna keep saying it, but that movie BB logo is terrible.

    That'd be up to the site admin, but a quick google search is making me think it'd also be unlikely since we're operating off a transformers site and not a major podcast host

    Brawler is awesome. Wish the wheels could lock, but otherwise, he is amazing.

    The bumblebee logo is weak in 2d but the picture of it as raised metal with glow behind it (standard TF Movie nods) makes it a lot less stupid.

    So, the Bumblebee logo... I thought it WAS the old air freshener from the first movie.

    And Dorbz, which is a name I cannot STAND, is also done by Funko. And so are "Mopeez".

    Dunnys (what is it about nerd hummel vinyls having godawful names?) is Kidrobot, because I went looking, and found THIS, and now I'm angry.

    BTW Seth, if you're looking for Links, Nenderoid Wind Waker Link & Zelda are super on model or at least very close.

    Mopeez sounds like a name someone made up for a parody about blindbox vinyls & that photo looks like the punchline >.<

    To answer Seth's question about the flipped image, I'm assuming Titans return Perceptor is a single convex lens. In such a case, the science basically works like this: [​IMG]

    Vangelus, just wanted to chime in that I think TF4 is the best one as well.
    The robots have visual distinction and character (even if they are violent morons), and ditching Shia helped too.

    @TJOmega @Vangelus

    What are these "rock cats" blind box figures you guys keep talking about? ITS BEEN DRIVING ME CRAZY THAT I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND ANYTHING LIKE WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. You know, when I google stuff.

    Are you making them up?

    You are a hero <3

    Yeah! It would've been nice if all that could've happened before settling into the violent morons aesthetic but you get what you're given I guess

    TJ can explain that better than I ever could so I'll leave it up to him

    (this is the first time I've successfully used the +multiquote feature yaaaay)

    I'd think that Creepout would end up being a scout, one that ends up constantly sent out into the field because the rest of his team can't stand him.

    Also, I imagine his voice to be the same one John DiMaggio used for the train conductor.

    I would be happy to help you once I'm the one the one who bought them and talks about them and Vangelus say my name like a dozen times and episode and it's not TJ so I'll let you wait a little longer.

    Oh, I'm sorry I was looking at @convoy84's post above where he had two usernames and I blanked and just quoted the same two without realizing which team was on which week.

    I was listening in the car and them came to the thread hours later. No offense meant!

    Miniatures Cat Rock Band Set Complete Box - Re-ment , h#2 ebay listing for a case. That price is a lot less then I was paying for individual boxes at a store.

    I'm curious as to what Creepout's head would look like. I picture it with a terribly thin comb-over hair style. You could totally make Onlooker out of that Reflector that came with Generations Skrapnel, just make a tripod for him.

    That bit with planning out that combiner team was absolutely brilliant. Freakin' Grunk!
