    Simple game:

    I post a photo depicting a tiny portion of a toy. You must correctly identify the figure. The first person to give the correct answer will be allowed to continue with a new photo.

    Rules for the photos:

    1) The photo must depict an official Hasbro or Takara Transformers figure or an officially licensed figure (Fun Publications, Fun-4-All/Basic Fun etc.). No unlicensed third-party items! Figures representing human/alien characters are also allowed as long as they're released under the "Transformers" brand.

    2) The photo must not depict the entire figure, only a small portion of it (a hand, a foot etc.). Photos of the packaging rather than the toy itself are also allowed!

    3) The portion must be unique enough to correctly identify the figure (i.e. not just a nosecone that could be any "Starscream" toy). A specific release of a sculpt should be recognizable as long as there are any differences between releases (i.e. a re-release with no changes counts as the "same" figure, but a minor redeco with the faction insignia moved to a different position or given a different color counts as a "different" figure). Photos of accessories or weapons are okay as long as those accessories or weapons are firmly tied to this particular figure. Accessories or weapons that were available with multiple dfferent figures are not permitted.

    4) Give the photos random names so people can't guess from the file name!

    Additional suggestion (not a rule): Odd quirks, widely documented flaws etc. are as "unique" as you can get.


    Rules for the answers:

    1) Answers need to be precise enough to pinpoint a specific figure. A simple "Bumblebee" doesn't cut it. Minimum requirements are toy line and character. If there are multiple figures of the same character in the same line, size class/price point or name of the multi-pack is also needed. If there are multiple toys of the same character in the same size released under the same line, you may add the year of release, the name of the sub-line or any other clear identifier. "Generations Bumblebee" could be at least three different figures, so please be as specific as necessary.

    2) If you guessed a figure, you must wait for at least four other people to post their guesses (only actual guesses count, responses by the person who posted the last photo confirming you or other people guessed wrongly don't count) before you are allowed another chance. Editing a post in order to change a guess that has been confirmed to be incorrect in order to circumvent this rule is hereby not permitted. Any guesses that violate this rule, either not waiting for four other people to make their guesses or editing an existing post, are considered invalid, and other people are allowed to repeat those guesses. If such a repeat is confirmed to be correct, the repeat that doesn't violate this rule counts. Exception to this rule: Anyone who can actually prove their own answer with a photo of their own is allowed to post right away.

    Rules for the person who posted the last photo:

    1) "Wrong answer" or "nope" means someone guessed completely wrong. If an answer is technically correct but still not precise enough (e.g. "Cybertron Hot Shot"), say "please be more specific" or "elaborate". Don't be a unnecessarily abrasive!

    2) Allow for typos, misspellings as long as the intent is clear. Use your own discretion to decide whether a "technically incorrect" name still qualifies or not, but don't be a smartass! "Beast Hunters Cyberverse Trailbreaker" would be okay even if the figure was actually named "Trailcutter".

    3) If nobody gives the correct answer within 12 hours after posting your photo, you must post additional clues or a larger crop of the photo.

    4) If you fail to give additional clues within 12 hours after posting the last photo, or if you haven't answered all guesses within 12 hours after posting your photo, your turn is up and the first person to post a new photo may continue the game.

    5) If your answer was confirmed as correct and you fail to counter with a new photo within six hours, your turn is up and the first person to post a new photo may continue the game.


    As the starter of this thread, I reserve the right to adjust these rules in case they a) turn out to be unclear to some folks or b) people use loopholes to "cheat".

    I'd like to start with this fella:

    For future reference, do you have to own the figure you post a pic of, and does it need to be your photo?

    Also what is time limit on control before posting a larger view of the figure to make it easier, or just a new one all together, in the event no one guesses correctly?

    Not to hijack but I think this would be preferable than simply posting stock photos or photos gathered elsewhere of figures you may not even potentially own.

    The 24 hour rule in the "Find That Transformer!" thread would fit something like this. I also used it in my defunct "Copy That Pose!" thread.

    As for my guess... damn... ROTF Voyager Starscream?

    Nope,

    And yeah without such rules I could post the most obscure of the most obscure, forever ruling the game, or the game dies when nobody can figure out what's been posted, not to mention the possibility for shenanigans in using totally non transformers things and holding up the game "for the lolz" as no one would know until after the fact what they posted

    maybe verbal (text) clues after a while, could help, if nobody's guessed correctly?

    I'm guessing packaging of some sort. Just can't figure out a transformer known for stitches or scars other than Lockdown.

    counter?

    Nevermore, in the "find that transformers thread" if you don't post a counter within thirty minutes than whoever is able to counter and has a new challenge can take control. Just to keep the game going.

    Having to wait for confirmation will be the stalling point of the game.
    Too bad, because I really like the idea.
