    I liked it. Every episode I watched was entertaining and informative, especially if you have a passion for the hobby/interest in making toys. One of the things I like about the TF hobby is the (surprisingly) rich history of where the toys came from, especially color scheme variants from the pre-TF era.

    Oh yeah, it's a great series. When it first came out I put it on for noise while I worked on projects, then totally got sucked in. Even the ones I had no interest in, like Barbie and Hello Kitty, were really cool. The crew from He-Man are my faves. What a group of cool dudes.

    Gonna end this who owns what debate right here, right now.


    I. Don't. Care. :p 

    As long as I get good alien robot toys from somebody, I do not care. Hasbro, Takara/Tomy, 3rd party, doesnt matter.

    Carry on. :D

    ...i expected the series to be a much more shallow and vapid treatment than it turned out to be: surprisingly, there's a lot of genuine substance in there...you're absolutely right about how it draws you in, especially following the meta-narrative of how barbie begat GI joe begat mego begat star wars begat he-man begat transformers; that's something i never really appreciated before...

    I don't have a problem with discussions, but it's common courtesy to keep it at least remotely related to the topic.

    Psst... Don’t tell forum people that. One might buy a sock and ship it to your house elf, with a note saying that it is your sock.

    We hope you survive the experience.

    *starts hearing Disney sirens and notices that he has two stars for making an unathorized Marvel’s X-Men reference*

    Oh Primus...

    *he starts to run*

    *wanted to agree with you but he is being chased by a Transformers version of Mickey Mouse*

    [Coming up... a normal, on-topic reply. Because those are possible... Right?]

    Why was there no news about the last 2 figures being made available on Hasbro Pulse?!?!? I'm lucky I checked today, seeing that today is the last day to buy them!
    I can't even check the last 40 pages of this thread to find where it might have been mentioned.

    BTW, someone mentioned TWO preorder windows for these. What is/was the 2nd window? Is it like counting Takara and Hasbro separately?
    Is the shipping date for preorders also when they'll be available for regular non-pre-order orders? Any standard time of day that goes into effect, like midnight or 9am or some random time in between? and in what time zone? I only bought 1 of each of the 2nd wave, and 2 of each of the 3rd wave.

    Third party semantics aside, it's still pretty messed up that TFW would choose to ignore Hasbro/Takara's own very time-limited pre-order window for a big deal exclusive and then proceeded to promote third party merchandise for the next week.

    Why wouldn't they? The other Combiners have KOs. Even Abominus.

    I was just gonna use an empty fish tank, with no fish or water, if I could get my hands on one. Maybe use mirrors or a projector to create the illusion of being underwater. :/

    Just did a little cleaning up in here, as a result of content which goes against the following rule:

    7.a No Public Questioning of Front Page News Choices
    The TFW2005 Staff takes careful consideration in what gets posted to the front page and when. Please do not question why a story did or did not go up in public discussion threads. If you have a concern with a front page story, please PM an Admin directly.

    With that said, we should have posted this news. We miss shit sometimes ;) . Thanks for the feedback, I’m letting our news team know now.

    Kinda relevant question as seacons are part of master force, so I was going through the wiki and the power of the primes dark wing and dread wind aren’t listed under hydra and buster even though they literally use the same exact characters with slight color changes,
    Just an oversight perhaps?,

    also can’t wait to put king p next to overlord, the two previously mentioned and the three “prime master” pretenders
    For my own little destron army, minus Devil Z/black z, because he’s a total wad

    its not an oversight, the figures may be the same but the characters are different. its like magnaboss and magnaboss II or b'boom and apache from bw and bw2, nearly identical figures but separate characters, or even powermaster optimus prime and ginrai

    true, but character wise it’s just a new toy of them, which is what I’m going with because I guess I’m delusional XD

    I would actually love a more affordable Black Zarak. I really like Devil Stinger, but that kind of money just isn't on the table right now. As far as Devil Z is concerned, I've seriously thought about using a glass marble - back lit with a LED - in a clam shell...
