    Listening to the WTF at TFW podcast, I heard that there was some sort of improv rap song performed at the end of the stream, but I can't find any YouTube recordings of it. Does anyone know where I could see it?

    Seeing this just makes me again wonder how Rodimus' alt-mode ever got tagged as a space winnebego. All the development art along with his first transformation in-movie, where there's that slight adjust like a trailer attaching itself to the main cab, just screams "badass truck."

    Flameboyant, but badass.

    I was thinking that but Shattered Glass Ratchet is also white and three white toys from the same mold wouldn’t be a good deal.

    Based on Goldbug’s mold choice, a SG Soundwave would likely be the voyager Soundwave mold. Unfortunately, they’d probably use the Siege one instead of the Earthrise Netflix one.

    I would be much more excited for Slag if he featured a black head with red visor. I can't stand the red head.

    Yes. I realize that would not be "movie accurate" but, honestly I don't care. The red head just looks bad.

    That makes a lot more sense than a Winnie. All Autobot Matrix bearers are trucks, right? It seems to be a theme.

    The parts that I like.
    Did you not notice that I began that sentence with "I prefer"?

    I was clearly talking about my own tastes, because believe it or not, preferring one toy over another is 1000% a subjective thing.

    There is no objective truth here, and there never will be. I like something, you don't. You don't like something, I do. This is the nature of our hobby.

    If you wanna block me for expressing a subjective opinion, please go ahead, because you're clearly an unbelievable weenie.

    Nowhere in my post says that you're wrong, I'm just wondering on which part of TR Gnaw is better than SS86 version, no need to be so defensive.

    You can still be subjective AND voicing your opinion, you know. Like say, I prefer T30 Rhinox because he doesn't have Faux lower jaw.

    Of course you can refrain from voicing your opinion and reason, but when you make a statement without any explanation, people will ask out of confusion or interest. Heck, you might found someone who shares your interest!

    Fair enough. It’s not as if the name is printed on the figure. You could call him ‘Susan’ if you wanted.

    It’s even a name that fits the Dinobot convention of starting with an ‘s’. :p :p :p

    Intentional or... :)

    Either way, can you do this?

    This would be a credible backstory for explaining his rage and attitude.

    The more I see of Wreck-Gar, the less I like him. The partsforming wheels are a total dealbreaker and the axe is so stunted it looks like pinwheel. Compare this to how beautifully well-integrated everything was on RTS Wreck-Gar's ingenious asymmetric transformation. Even the axe forms the tailpipe instead of just pegging onto the back. Hell, I wish he did look like that in the cartoon. I'm not a slave to G1 accuracy, sometimes a better design makes for a better toy. I'll stick with what I've got, thanks.

    To me the highlight is Gnaw. I do appreciate the movie look, but I've never had any qualms with TR Gnaw and he scales well with current figures. Maybe if I can get SS86 Gnaw on discount....

    judging by the Allicon I would say that’s unlikely. He’s a troop builder. Tons of people will be looking for multiples.

    I like the RTS Junkions a lot too, but I'm still getting the new ones. That's the nice thing about Junkions, they don't all look the same.

    Sharkticons on the other hand...Will I ever be able to get 3. I've got 1 Allicon and 1 Quintesson(so far), so it ain't looking good. The figure looks good but my odds of successfully troop building them do not.
