    if you've been in this for 16 years and you think what fans yell about on social media has any direct consequence to general sales then maybe you need to be in it another 16 and pay better attention this time

    Fans will get mad at anything on social media lol! It’s social media, designed so the most polarizing posts get the most attention. No duh the posts you see the most are the negative ones that get the most attention.

    This guys sick. Easily in the top 5 must get for this year. Especially after accounting for Omega Prime in the budget, I still want to figure out a way to get this guy if I can. I’d buy a hundred of them before a single djd member.

    Just stop! ....Classic case of moving the goal post since there's dozens of receipts of people like you saying the same crap about Tarn until Hasbro finally released him therefore shutting those detractors up, or compelling them to "slightly omit" their views about the DJD releases...

    It's ridiculous reading people try to use a character's popularity to discourage someone's request for it in a thread based on a character that never existed at all.

    And don't try to spend this as me hating new material since the DJD aren't that old to begin with. This Rocklord gimmick just isn't hitting for SOME collectors, which to my understanding isn't a crime to elaborate on in here.

    If you like this pending Rock thing, good for you. I'm just letting Hasbro scouts know that there are some core consumers that will still buy previous characters who get no love.

    I guess that post you're replying to hurt your feelings... But sometimes your counter attacks back you into a corner that is so contradictory that it's not even funny... Happy hunting if you like this figure.

    Like this Rock-coptor, The DJD lineup are "NEW THINGS" who have never had toys until Tarn!

    And so are a good portion of the non-G1 figures I've been buying the last few years, so try again....
    Careful! An accusation like this will shut up more DJD haters than I ever could if there's merit.

    You prepared to have those types of enemies in here...?

    My headcanon is Shard is NOT made for aerial combat but tries to be airborne anyway and by any means and interprets blunt force as being graceful in motion.

    Shard "falls with style" like Buzz Lightyear and "makes perfect landings" like Launchpad McQuack.

    Maybe, but the concept of a rock truck is cool.

    Yeah, I'm not feeling it.
    Even the execution of that concept was not enough to convince me.
    Honestly, the execution left me wanting a remould without the rock texture.

    So now that you can't even come up with thin arguments you are trying it on a personal level. Seriously?
    I hope for you that you don't really believe what you are saying there because otherwise you'd be even more delusional than I thought.
    End of the conversation with you for me.

    You're the one who complained about a random Deluxe figure existing rather than Hasbro pulling out all the stops and using this year's commander slot on mr "Shelfwarmed as a Third Party Figure so bad MMC made the decision to kill their IDW inspired line because it wasn't selling" himself. If you were just unhappy with the gimmick or thought rockformers were silly I wouldn't have cared, plenty of people think that and I don't comment on their posts. Its that "Oh the random Deluxe figure is stopping us from getting the mostly leader sized DJD" attitude that made me annoyed enough with the post I had to drag the DJD along with it. Want to know who's actually stopping you getting the DJD? Tigerhawk and Magmatron. And let me tell you, those are absolutely characters I'd prefer over any of the DJD and have a suspicion the wider community prefers as well

    And dude, no one was dumping on Tarn. He showed up in Cyberverse for crying out loud, we knew he was on Hasbro's radar ever since then. We knew we were getting a Tarn figure because it turns out, cool tank former is something that's likely to get a new figure. The problem is the other members of the DJD don't have Tarn's staying power. There's a reason he just got an army of clones in that show. Vos is probably the next most likely

    The funny thing is, there are lots of rocks that are lighter than Aluminum, which is one of the lightest metals used in aircraft.

    Agate, flint, granite, marble, opal, quartz - all lighter than aluminum by volume.

    So yes, an aircraft made out of stone could theoretically fly.

    Holy crap I love this idea. This is now canon to me and nothing anyone says will convince me otherwise.

    Won't lie, this sold me on the whole Infernac crew and I've since picked up Magneous and Bouldercrash.

    Yay rockicopter!
