    Is he called slurr because he slurs his words, or is it because of what he calls other lifeforms when he is drunk

    I missed her when she originally was released, had to buy her off eBay at eBay pricing. Had to buy her a second time when the first one got lost/stolen in shipping.

    Oof that's rough, but at least you managed to get the version you wanted eventually

    Hope they eventually make a reissue of TR Arcee. Such an amazing retool and is a crime that it wasn't more widely available.
    Excuse me, I'm going to start customizing my Arcee.

    I’d pay good money for somebody to make a G1-style The Fallen with a design ripped straight out of The War Within.

    True, but that toy is 14 years old, and if a 3P company did an updated toy with hands that aren’t shaped like boxes, I’d buy it.

    Isn't that also from the Titanium line, which is notoriously awful?

    I'd love that, a (good) new figure based on this design could easily share a mold with a Stormbringer-inspired Megatron too.

    It sucked when ROTF established the Fallen is a spindly victim of Prime; the taker of faces. Especially when the true Dreamwave Fallen had not yet been given a respectable main line mold.

    It's kind of like Tarn in that way. They could be remolds of each other I think.

    Sure, it's probably the best Titanium? But, like, it's not great. The joint tolerances are all over the place (the backpack is hinged at the BOTTOM and it wants you to fold that bit UP, but, like, there's no way it's staying), the altmode is.... well, a hollow box, it has blocks for fists,

    And, yeah, it's probably the best Titanium.

    It was even the best Fallen for a good number of years, so long as your criteria was "is it on fire." But now there's the Flame Toys one, so.

    Well I looked the flame toys up and that is still a titanium did it better. Lol $420 for an 8 inch figure? Did you forget the blue font?

    Ooof! I loved that Stormbringer design. Siege Megs basically uses a slimmed down version of that design but it’s not the same gritty/heavy metal vibe.

    I think Stormbringer Megs time has passed but I do get a little bit of nostalgia thinking about it. It was still the early days of IDW TF comics and Classsics had just blown up or were about to blow up the scene. Don Fig’s art had that special energy. It definitely was a point in time that stood out nostalgia-wise.

    Time passes and the only constant is that we get older… :D

    I know there's basically no chance of it happening but I'd absolutely love it if we got some new figures based on those early IDW designs. Megatron's great (I think I still like his War Within design a little more, but the Stormbringer look would definitely fit in better with the WFC aesthetic), it's one of the best Cybertronian Optimus Prime looks, and of course Jetfire is basically the perfect combination of his toy and cartoon designs. If only the Classics figure had come a few years later, it might have been given good enough articulation for it to still hold up today.

    It's not like concepts from early idw still can't happen. TR astrotrain was based on his Stormbringer design iirc
