    Exactly what I meant.
    That Companies and Customers alike live in Fear that Hasbro could Hunt them Down and they end up in Prison.


    That is the Reason because Youtube Reviewers as an example often use the Word "NOT" in Front of the Character Name / 3P Products.

    I feel sorry for UT, that they quit because of Fear / they do not want to go into Prison.

    I hope that some day everbody finds the courage to stand up and say "Shut up Hasbro, I can do whatever I want"

    No Really, I support all 3rd Party Companies. I am only a little bit shocked that one after another quits because of Hasbros....Inquisitors that Hunt everybody down because they think that they "own"
    everything Transformer related things on Earth.

    If People always use "NOT" in front of Characters Names, shows that the Fear is real.

    But you know what?
    That
    -"Fear",
    -"Hasbro will punish me" and
    - "I could go to Prison".
    Is only in your Heads / Mind.
    It is not Real.

    That wasn't why they quit tho.

    You could at least get correct information before going off on your stupid tangents.

    People are not saying "NOT-Optimus Prime" because they believe that the word "NOT" is a magical incantation that will prevent them from all legal trouble. It is always done tongue-in-cheek.

    What is this argument, even, good gracious.

    I absolutely HATE it when people say "not-" with these figures. It sounds ridiculous, it's silly, and it's one of the stupidest things ever created in this fandom.

    ...us "It's not-Optimus from Unique Toys". *Random stranger seeing pic on phone* "Ooh! They made Optimus into a toy! Dang, yo!"

    People aren't stupid, they choose to annoy with this garbage. If I owned the board, I'd actually ban the use of that word in this manner.

    We should never celebrate or champion stupid actions and the idiocy that comes with them.

    Personally, I see it as an indicator of what the figure is supposed to be.

    Like, Naval Commander. I would have never guessed that's Armanda Prime. Some of these 3P names are whack and their origins aren't always sensical.

    Simple fix... "Oh, Naval Commander? That's Armada Optimus made by a 3rd party company. Same character just not official."

    Or "That's Fans Hobby's version of Armada Optimus"

    At 1:44 you can see where the paint is going to go on the CAB front (I'll grant you it's probably a well fiddled with review copy, but "take care" is clearly evident) :) 

    Also 1:41 (CAB inside)

    That's a pretty long thread title though.

    Though I notice that more people are just putting the name into the title of the character it's supposed to.. "homage."

    There was also a weird wave of 6 months where mods were changing thread titles to not include the names of companies or characters and then ended up not doing it anymore after everyone got frustrated by not being able to find the threads.

    He was the Autobot leader in Armada, with an Autobot fleet fleed at his command, from the show called Armada. Thus Naval Commander.

    Purple Potato on the other hand is all forms of out there.

    Yes, I'm well aware of it now, but had I just looked at the name, I wouldn't have guessed it was Armada Prime.

    "They think that they 'own' everything Transformers related"

    TRANSFORMERS Trademark of HASBRO, INC. - Registration Number 4301091 - Serial Number 85681133 :: Justia Trademarks

    I've never seen a take this dumb though

    "But you know what?
    That
    -"Fear",
    -"Hasbro will punish me" and
    - "I could go to Prison".
    Is only in your Heads / Mind.
    It is not Real"

    Please, I implore you, break copyright laws, and defend yourself in court with this argument.

    Looking at the video, the quality is not the best.
    There are some sink marks on the sides and back of the cabin, a lot of rough panel edges and paint scuffs.
    Hope this is just only a pre production sample and a final product will be free of these issues.

    Otherwise it's a pretty impressive figure, with fun looking transformation, and not much sacrifice to either robot or alt mode.

    On the contrary, by prefacing the figure's name with "Not" they have created entirely new and unique figures despite any similarities to the originals!

    I always thought that it was a joke of sorts.

    Keep in mind too that often times early reviewers get sample copies, and they almost never come with instructions. Imagine trying to transform something like that without help! I’m just glad they didn’t give up 80% of the way through like Ben does…
