    I love Matere’s art. Manages that traditional TF style yet still has wonderfully expressive poses and faces.

    They’re $40 here. Often more on Amazon, who jacks up prices of in-demand figures like Scourge to $45-50. (And yes, it’s Amazon themselves, not 3rd party sellers)

    That's really nice how they have it so the wheels can be mounted on any arm or leg of Wreck-Gar.

    They should do a Pixar Cars Crossover with Mater as a Junkion.

    Wow, that is an impressive mistransformation of RTS Jazz's feet by whoever took that picture.

    About 500 Megs left out of 7000 that went up, if that helps give you an idea at all.

    Why does SG make no sense coming from the ones that own and created the franchise?

    Matere's art is fantastic and all, but it's Wreck-Gar's wrist articulation that gets me all giddy. He's gonna look glorious in various swashbuckling poses with Prime Dead End's scimitars.

    Really? I was so worried they were doing poorly!
    How can I see these numbers for myself?

    I just caved on Shattered Glass Starscream, as I can't NOT get a Siege Tetrajet figure.

    Slag has been called Slag longer than he has been called Slug. Nostalgia is a stronger force than some arbitrary change due to "censorship". I don't think "molten slag" is an offensive term, and has no relation to the derogatory sexual insult. Words can have more than one meaning, and Slag's name is not the insulting definition.

    Nostalgia is considered a class A drug in some countries.

    My next five choices for the Shattered Glass Collection would be

    • Cyclonus from Kingdom Cyclonus
    • Rodimus from Studio Series '86 Hot Rod
    • Grimlock from Studio Series '86 Grimlock
    • Treadshot from Studio Series '86 Jazz
    • Soundwave & Thundercracker from Kingdom Core Soundwave and Starscream

    The only reason I'm still a Transformers fan is to feed my incurable addiction.

    Honestly, this argument, while true, doesn't work for me. It's not like someone decided at some point that a word was offensive. We discovered that the word was offensive to certain people. When one discovers something like this, the correct response isn't "Well, it isn't offensive to *me.*" The correct response is, "I'm sorry. I'll try to do better."

    Hasbro is trying to do better, and so the triceratops Dinobot (who I confess will still remain "Slag" in my own mind, better intentions notwithstanding) now sports a new name.

    MultiNationalCorps are normally allergic to controversies. Period. But recent developments seems to belie that. Depending how the board of directors mindset. Some might want to jump on a certain trend (eeehm, Hb been doing that since 2015 up) or just play it safe.

    TT will just use a JP font decal to fix their version. He will of course be Slag. (Btw, wasn't there a Gobot called Stacks?)
