    @Strafe28066 condolences brother, sorry to hear that. Been well over a decade since my nan passed away. They're in a better place and you're strong enough to remember her and keep strong :)

    If you don't me asking of course...! Are any of the upcoming animated characters straight up animated designs, or are all getting converted to generations?

    I kinda hope it's the former, as @Skywarp SCS points out, Hasbro are having a laugh with the pricing this last while.

    Hey, if someone doesn't like Beast Wars that's totally fine. Not everyone has to like every part of the franchise. It's big, broad and old enough to cater for all sorts. It's just the childish "stupid beasts are stupid not REAL Transformers like G1" attitude from someone who's probably 40-odd is definitely worth mocking.

    I've got both right next to me and aside from the new bits the molding is identical between the Siege version and the SG version. I think they just look more like treads on the Siege version because the rear ones are black rather than white.

    Rumour has it that how well the GTA remastered Trilogy does will dictate whether Red Dead Redemption also gets a remake.

    I have everything crossed that RDR gets remade which will then lead to a special edition PS5 being issued.
    If so, I shall be straight on that pre-order!!

    See this is not helping, I don’t like the jet mode much but the tank in those colours is way more interesting, I love my G2 purple and green Megs, he’s a total joy but I am a sucker for Energon homages….

    @Strafe28066 - Really sorry for your loss. My Nan passed last year and she’s missed every day so I hope things improve for you in time. From what I have learned in a short time on this site is that you’ve got a brilliant group here that are always about for support and a chat etc.

    @LiamK - Totally agree. I never understood the people that neg on Beast Wars. Personally it’s not for me but I appreciate how cool the toys are. I wouldn’t blast people and have massive flame wars with people over it. It’s just unnecessary stress :) 

    If it feels bad, mate it probably is. Strong post! I totally get you.

    Hasbro better up their QC game from the utter shitfuckery it currently is. Takes so much joy out of the customer experience given all the iffy paint jobs and wobbly joints.

    @Skywarp SCS I agree with a lot of the points raised, had similar thoughts earlier today.

    I went ahead and cancelled my Haslab Star Saber; that's a leader and a voyager for titans prices, and all the extras need to be unlocked. I'm not keen on current prices or most new figures, once the "newness" and completism has worn off. Kingdom Beast Megatron? Loving it. Kingdom Rodimus? Brill. Kingdom Galvatron? Super.

    But then again, most studio series I've handled were very so-so, and most kingdom deluxes I've handled wouldn't survive three days at the hands of their target audience. MP Starscream? Fab but construction for something so expensive wasn't up to the task.

    It -does- get to the point of being poor value for the cost paying, and a combiner at these prices makes me a bit scared lol. Eh.

    Well, that's a fairly easy pass, given how ludicrously expensive it's probably going to be!

    They have clearly given alt and work modes a spit & polish but, yeah, not for me either but I do hope the UT fans go hog wild to keep chances of Tidal Wave alive.
    Also someone in the 'Plex Leak thread has posited the possibility of a Weaponizer Drill Bit, which I think seems feasible given the Pegwarming death of WFC Micromasters, and, should that positing be actualised in reality...

    But congrats on them making it read like LEGAL which is sort of appropriate in this case.

    It's totally a Stoner Mark design, innit? Pure psychedelic symmetry, just a hit or two away from Black Metal band name illegibility! :lol

    That looks for all the world like a test of the fanbase.

    I just automatically assume the legs will flop with every figure now. And apart from CJ, dear love you if it turns into a car. Or alleges it does.

    This.
