    I had my tonsils removed when I was 18. A couple days later I started feeling woozy and went to the ER. The incision had reopened and I had lost an unknown amount of blood. They said they couldn't put me under and fix it properly because of the blood loss. The solution was some sort of topical aerosol being sprayed on the back of my throat and then those silver sticks poking and searing. It took many applications and my involuntary gagging and screaming really complicated things. After I recuperated everyone at work and all my friends said my voice sounded weird. Weee!

    I want a new Predaking. I know they said they don't have plans for it, but I want a CW Predaking.

    Honestly until Vangelus explained it.

    I thought He confused Bludgeon with Beast Wars Rampage when kept calling him a Crab

    Oh, Aaron. Legendary is super fun, but I don't wish the hunt to find the Fantastic Four expansion on anyone. Good luck.

    1000toys is pronounced "sen-toys." They're Japanese, so 1000="sen".

    What about all the 3P companies with X in their names. Are they supposed to be read like xfer = transfer?

    Don't know. I'm just going off of what the guy behind 1000toys said.

    Here's why I'm getting Battle Core Optimus. He's homaging Nova Prine design-wise, and that makes me happy.

    What I don't get with the reuse of Combiner Wars molds is the lack of love for Air Raid or Skydive. I think those molds are better than the Firefly mold, yet we keep getting Firefly redone for Quickslinger and Blast Off. Heck, Air Raid with a different headsculpt would have been better suited for Blast Off in robot mode if it has to be a jet.

    My Target (in NJ) still hasn't gotten any deluxe Protectobots. Still Rattraps and Leader AoE Grimlocks all over. Is there still hope of finding First Aid?

    I actually like the Triggerbots! They had a memorable story in the older marvel comics. As a kid, something about that issue, they just oozed personality. It also helped it was my first TF comic. I was super excited when there was the old rumor RTS tracks was gonna become Backstreet, though those were false.

    I'm hoping I'm not sounding rude, but with amiibo, raTJ repeats the same things every time.

    I'm not saying "ARGH I HATE AMIIBO TALK" like some have w/ the wrestling & Seth (which I personally enjoy) but at least say something new.

    A hole in the wall shop had 1 for retail price. We still haven't opened it because we looked at eBay prices.

    easy way to get beast mode combiners:

    I could see the Terrorcons, Predacons, and Seacons could being done from the same set of base tooling thusly:

    Divebomb-Cutthroat-Seawing
    we start with Divebomb. basic bird body. give him a new beast head and serpentine tail to make Cutthroat. to make Seawing we keep Cutthroat's tail, drop in yet another new beast head and some new wings.

    Rippersnapper-Overbite-Scalor
    Rippersnapper into Overbite is a simple case of tossing a new coat of paint on. maybe changing the beast arms if one wishes to get fancy. the remold into Skalor would need a new beast head, dorsal fin, and tail.

    Tantrum-Headstrong-Blot
    Tantrum and Headstrong are super easy. some colour swaps and hew head needed. maybe flip the beast mode for one upside down to make the other like MMC did for Feral Rex. now for Blot we stand the beast mode up on its hind legs, remove the horns from headstrong's rhino face and replace the beast mode forelegs with Blot's big troll arms

    Rampage-Sinnertwin-Tentakil
    Rampage into ST is easy enough, replace Rampage's one tail with two and his beast head with a hinged rig holding ST's pair. going for a g1 style transforamtion where the heads just hang off his back. and to make Tentakil we replace all four legs both tails and both heads from ST into tentacles. then use some paint apps to bring out the clever sculpted detail in ST's torso revealing Tentakil's face.

    Razorclaw-Snaptrap
    both are big beefy quadrupeds with dual cannons mounted on their backs. so by taking Razorclaw's mane and moving onto the back (and retooling it to look more turtle shelly) one can feasibly make Snaptrap.

    Hunn Gurr would need to be his own mold. however he could easily become Doublecross, giving us a base to begin a team of Monsterbots
    Repugnus from Blot
    Grotusque from Rampage
    two new Monsterbots (ummmmm Leatherhide and Torca lets just say) from Seawing and Skalor

    and to get some proper CW Maximum repaint value
    Horri-bull from Tantrum
    Stranglehold from Headstrong
    Mindwipe from Seawing
    Squeezeplay from Blot
    Nemesis Breaker from Razorclaw

    I'm all for them going forward with CW/TW. This has been the most consistently fun I have had with an overall line in years, usually is been on a super individual basis. I'll even forgive the limited release BS they pulled with Slingshot and Wildrider (I don't even remember their "official" names).

    Also, they're running out of big names, leaving the door open for more new/reimagined characters like Sky Reign. If he were to be the last new one, I wouldn't mind. He's getting all the "classic autobots" because he's so inherently terrific it's only natural to let him swap and scramble in a wild succession, like only he can.

    We're already set for next year, but if we were to have another, I hope the pure G2 redecos aren't too common.

    Korito's third question was asked a very long time ago, in the single digit episodes I believe, it was answered by the even team as well and alphie was mentioned back then too.
