    When the battle is too much for me alone, I can always rely on my trusty sidekick: Logic Lad!
    But, should even our might falter, hope remains with the warrior from the deepest stars... ig-Nor!

    Do they allow logic lad anywhere near the internet?

    Not since the formation of the ultimate band of villainy and terror... the shadowy cabal known only as: Rule 32!

    I feel like he died during that Crisis on Infinite BBSes back in the 90's, along with Carmen Sense and Groot Taste.

    He did, but was brought back in the wake of the events of the Age Of Wireless.

    Sadly, I think we're going to have to disagree. The proliferation of wireless devices with internet access brought us The Twitter which is proof Logic Lad is long dead.

    Anyway, back to Roboobs McAnimuface. I wonder if this company is going to adapt a system for their figs. Seems like they have a lot in the kitty as far as projects, but a lot of them seem to share basic concepts and design features. It'd be cool for some collectors to pick up this thing and then have a bunch of other figures they can swap out weapons with and stuff. That's always fun.

    Isn't that kind of always doable with figures of the same scale?

    Not necessarily. Same scale doesn't mean the same size or shape for the peg holes. Remember when DX9 was doing legends figures and had those 2mm peghole weapons, whereas Iron Factory had 5mm? This company is smallish, so it's not inconceivable that the designers/design teams are not all following the same design "rules".

    I wasn't on the Transformer boards back then, just playing Mafia and other "online" games of the time.

    You're probably better off for it, honestly.

    Looking at this figure again and comparing it to some of their other figures (specifically the Grimlock/Metal Gear things), I'm now kinda wishing there was some kind of neo-techno FarCry Blood Dragon meets Boris Vallejo meets 80's synth pop/new wave album cover barbarian swords and sorcery continuity for Transformers. Just a complete tongue in cheek balls to the wall fantasy romp using elements from across the franchise.

    I lost count after three. Also, I miss the days when everyone knew you were online because it sounded like someone was trying to steam press a duck in the living room.

    I used to be on Compuserve with a 300 baud rate modem. We could watch each individual character resolve while typing.

    I would have killed to have had that on the side of a Chevy G10 back in 1987.
