    That's how they're being marketed, yeah...

    [​IMG]

    ...although they also encourage painting the figures, which nobody in their right mind would suggest for erasers. :rolleyes: 

    You'd experience less criticism if you actually opened and assembled your BOSS figures, photographed them with more common Transformers to establish a sense of their scale, or at least stopped posting the same damn picture... o_O

    Okay, heads up: this next one's coming WAY out of left field.

    Presenting Takara Beast Wars C-18, Powerhug.

    [​IMG]

    His depiction in media is compelling:

    [​IMG]

    His alt. mode is impressive:

    [​IMG]

    His spring-loaded gimmicks are effective:

    [​IMG]

    His play value is self-evident.

    [​IMG]

    His robot mode is deplorable.

    [​IMG]

    Basically, his arms are locked in a curled position, either hugging an unseen object...

    [​IMG]

    ...or spread wide and inviting, with just enough dangling between his legs to resemble a pervert in a trenchcoat.

    This is why I don't collect Beast Wars, kids.
    Seriously, what creepy sicko came up with this creepy sicko?

    I love how everything about this toy just says "To heck with it. We know this is stupid and we're going with it."

    I can just imagine Takara's meeting:
    Boss: "Okay team, Hasbro just sent us this 'Retrax' mold."
    *shows 90s equivalent of a PowerPoint slide*
    Boss: "...."
    Development team: "...."
    One guy: "LET'S CALL IT POWERHUG."
    Boss: "...I quit. This project is yours."
    Guy: "AND COLOUR HIM LIKE COTTON CANDY."
    Ex-Boss: *flips table*
    Guy: "Looks like somebody needs a POWERHUG."

    I'm pretty sure PowerPoint came out in the 90s. :lol 

    Also I like that Boss progresses to Ex-Boss.

    I just turned 23 last month. Here's a weird feeling: I work at a restaurant, and one of our hosts is 15 going on 16. Okay, sure, she's young, but I feel like I was around that age not too long ago.

    She was born in 2001.


    I understand how math works but NO HOW ARE YOU NOT A BABY

    I'm 27

    And I had powerhug, but like the majority of my BW 2 and BW Neo collection, the box they were in was lost a move years ago :(
