My sentiments exactly. I have bigger fish to fry myself.
Neither was Drift but that doesn't mean G1 Drift doesn't exist.
In the words of SG demolishor(more or less) to Cliffjumper: just because we havent seen them, doesnt mean they don't exist
Yes technically that still counts as G1 even if he wasn't in the G1 show. The term G1 has expanded to include anything based in a G1 inspired universe. For example Nemesis got a universe figure based in classics so he was referred to as G1 Nemesis
Ohhh ok ok I thought they did some retro G1-ification like they did to barricade.
Technically that is what happened with nemesis since he made the jump from armada to G1.
What a great character. I was super sad to find nemesis wasn’t in the G1 cartoon. His ubiquitous presence in every line made it really seem like he was in the cartoon.
So again, where do people outside of North America get this Wallmart stuff?
I think I'm more into what they will reveal for Star Wars Black Series.
The same artist that did that barricade did a drift and deadlock from springer, which was used as the basis of the first drift/deadlock design in cyberverse
Depends on the country. In Japan: TakaraTomy Mall. Asia: just about anywhere. UK: Smyths. Other EU: unknown to me (but i'm in the USA).
If you ask in the sightings thread for your country you might get a good answer.
That's about the most unlikely thing ever considering "Weird Al" is already married, too old for me and neither of us is gay(that I know of)...
If they did that, I’d just hope they’d distribute the exclusives well outside of the US.
If you can’t tell, I’m pissed off at Hasbro for continually being blind. How often do we yell, “Hasbro, you bastards, you screwed this one up!” And yet they give not a shit for anything other than the giant green piles of PROFIT produced by people who will get what they paid for when pigs fucking FLY.
You could argue any of the mind controlled, zombie of fake Optimus' in the cartoon were "Nemesis Prime" of a sort as that is how they use the name in The Last Knight and the Fake Optimus (also called Nemesis Prime) in The Prime cartoon wasn't repainted either.
Just assume one of those clones of zombie versions was plucked from time and got a new paint job or something.
As for G1- well yeah if they look like they make sense existing in a given universe I have not problem presuming that there is a version of Lockdown, Lugnut, Barricade, Bulkhead, Nautica & others in a G1 like context. It basically what they do with Diaclone repants - reissue them or make an MP version and slap a Transformers name on it. I'd not object at all to a 198o's Prowl repaint being released in G1 style packaging as Barricade - actually i'd be pretty pleased to see him.
Besides I think some people see pretty much anything in the generations lines (that isn't overtly another theme) to be a form of G1 merch in character terms (like Earthrise Grapple is) if not in toy style terms.
As for Walmart stuff. Well it's going to be repaints... so I know what repaints I'd actually want ; Sunstorm and Detritus and Liftticket would be nice. or perhaps a Black Starscream. I'm not going to complain to hard if it's an F-15 Redwing or Acidstorm or a Purple Cloe seeker either though.
I'd not mind if they made a cell shaded Starscream and Soundwave either. I suppose it's a bit late to hope for any more combiner compatible Deluxes though - even if I'd find a few more useful to have.
Looks like there’s some movement going on with some of the Netflix listings in Walmart.com’s system right now. Specifically these 5....
By movement I mean the typical thing Walmart does before something gets revealed and put up for pre-order which is along the lines of.... “ Hey let’s lock all these listings a couple days before they’re revealed, scrub their names and call them some thing generic like Hasbro action figure even though they leaked out months ago”.
I’ll have to keep an eye on them to see if images get added early if they are indeed being revealed this Friday.
Edit: I just checked the Walmart exclusive GI joe retro line listings too. The same thing is going on with them.
Weird that Cheetor and Deep Cover aren't a part of that.
Cheetor, Deepcover, Barricade and the quintesson are looking to be apart of wave 3.
cool, hope that means we get reveals on the 17th! I'm gonna be gobsmacked if we see Netflix BB before the presumed Earthrise BB.
Here’s to hoping that Wheeljack is retooled into a cybertronian mode closer to the mode seen in “More Than Meets the Eye Part 1” than a Lancia.
I can see them doing something with the peg holes on his back and the big spoiler seen in the cartoon, even if they don’t retool that back piece too drastically.
