    Apparently he released a song and a video that have caused a lot of controversy. To avoid another political debate, let's just say it's not kid-friendly content.

    Ohh ok. We usually don't get much buzz from those kind of news, since that's the whole MO for the genre. Hasbro probably is fine with it, because that's basically his whole career (and all of the other reggaetoneros for that matter).

    J. Balvintron is gonna be the first Transformers Collaborative figure that I’ll pass on, mainly because it’s a G1 mold and not Generations-styled.

    You know, if there is anyone willing to part with the blast effects (maybe also the gun, but I don't really expect anyone to be as willing to give up that), I'd be willing to figure something out. Those are literally the only thing that had me interested about this set.

    So I inquired based upon the time frame on NTWRK's web listing of "Product ships beginning of October.". Support says end of October right now. They refused to confirm they are sitting in a shipping container off the west coast atm...

    Just checked what this ‘controversy’ was about. Hilarious if/why people would throw a storm about this - either way, the guy also just released a single and video for the Pokémon 25th anniversary album - I think Hasbro will be fine.

    Is it the video that is kind of the "furry" side of things? Because I couldn't find anything else of note lately.

    Same - hoping the time actually helps the metal age back into proper metal from the gross looking scrap used...
