    I tried creating a Carousell account to buy that 86 Hot Rod he has available but unfortunately United States isn’t one of the supported countries. Oh well no worries I’ll wait for the official release.

    I'll always prefer metallic painted eyes, but regular paint gets the job done as well.

    I don't display my figures in front of a light source, so I'd prefer that I can see their eyes when not holding them next to a lamp.

    I guess I overlooked that. Soundwave had the yellow visor that was light piped. Shockwave had his eye.

    I didn't know you were an expert on robotic biology, please tell us more about how their bodies function. There certainly aren't machines in real life which light up in a fashion and are familiar to what we'd perceive as eyes or indicate being "on" or "alive", no sir.

    I agree with the first half, not with the second half. Alien robot eyes could glow for all we know. But just flat out lights are not at all the same because lights don't have to see things

    But they are not lights. If they are like our own eyes, they are light-sensing devices. They detect incoming light waves and interpret those as a signal which is then fed into whatever passes for a Transformer's "brain." We all have smart phones, try to take a picture in a dark environment, most of our phones emit a light for the camera to analyze the subject being photographed. I had an old VHS camcorder that had a "night vision" mode (ask your mom why.) and when it was on, a tiny red light below the lens illuminated, it emitted a small amount of light so that the night vision would work. Who's to say that a Transformer's eye glow doesn't serve some sor

    for some reason my post was cut off. I'll continue:

    Haven't checked this thread in a minute but people are now going out of the way to buy stolen product? As if TT and PvP and other 'early' reviewers aren't bad enough. I do not like whatever this part of the fandom is that finds this acceptable.

    If the company the sample was taken from files a report then it is technically stolen. So the purchser is guilty of buying stolen goods.

    I don’t know how many of you were around when all this stuff was made in China. I remember as early as around the time Of the Unicron Trilogy, you could even buy convention exclusives like the Car brothers repaints (can’t remember BotCon exclusive maybe?)on Taobao before the convention, for not much. And the seller I got to know pretty well said a lot of them were production samples to test out the assembly process, they wouldn’t be packaged to be sold in the end, so some of them were given away by the person in charge of the line. The seller always had multiples of each new figures arrive on the same day; it’d be really difficult to ‘Steal’ that many without being noticed.

    I‘m not in any ways condoning stealing and obviously the Takara contacted factories have tightened their rules over the years; I’m just pointing out that the act of getting these out of the factory may not be as sinister as some of you think.
