I know_know, but what about constructicons and stunticons ?_?
Thanks for the info...
If they do a regular sized Hex I'm totally in. Shame there's no plan of an upscaled one.
I ordered them both but have no original to post them against. However, I do have original Voyager Hound for a reference. Would that work?
If so, I'll post photos when they arrive. I never got a shipping notification or a tracking number though, but it says it's been shipped.
Yes. Thank you!!!
Viagra Alloy Edition? Maybe he turns into another kind of gun?
No problem. My hope is that they sorta scale with Human Alliance figures, but if not that's fine too.
It takes a few days for the number to appear in your order history. I honestly don't remember if you'll get an actual notification… but I'm OCD enough that I periodically check all my ordered items from various sites on a (usually) daily basis.
I have often seen the word "viagra" in Google translations of oversized toys, like the Toyworld Throttlebots.
Alloy means diecast metal.
So Viagra Alloy means Oversized Diecast.
Bah... Killing the fun! I just posted for some fun with Google translator, not as anything to actually translate. I just found the translation ridiculously silly, as is the age acceptable: 3. Wtf? Hegemon for a 3 year old?
If this was made last year, people would have soaked up the supply like a sponge... But with apollyon, that looks far better than hegemon in both modes, being only slightly more than what this will end up being marked up to, I don't see this selling out as quickly as it would have otherwise.
Yeah, I've ordered from SirToys before. Not really worried about the notification but I did get a tracking number last time. However, as long as it arrives I'm okay with it. Been about a week though since it said it was "shipped."
That alone is hilarious!
So it looks like KO Hexatron does have some simplifications. I don't mind the slightly hollow bits. Kind of a drag that the head has no articulation, though that shouldn't be too hard to fix up with some customizing. I hope those ratchet joints hold up at least.
Still... for the price, pretty fantastic.
It probably comes from the fact that the Chinese name for Viagra is "伟哥" which are the two symbols for "big/great" and "brother".
So the guy in Chinese is saying that the toy is Toyworld Hegemon's "diecast big brother", but Google translate merging the words and thinking it's a Viagra ad. It's amazing the way things get mistranslated from Chinese to English. Google seems to have decided any mention of "big brother" in Chinese is a Viagra ad. Puts a whole new spin on the TV reality series and the George Orwell book huh?
I just watched that movie the other day... All these years I thought it was "1984"... But with subtitles on, I discovered it was "The Blue Pill" ... Orwell was a genius and wrote a prequel to the Matrix!
Viagra Rhubarb Peak Megatron. I must have it.
Any word on approx release?
You've got him in, or you read about the simplification?
Paul, you getting any of that delicious looking Hegemon? How should I phrase it on my want list so I don't end up on an FBI watch list?
Does anyone have the "v1" ko tfc herc? I have one otw and am hoping for the best.
Awesome. I picked up the green one for now. Depending how lack luster it is will determine my next step.
Separate names with a comma.
