    Everybody hates on betatron/scattershot. As a Scattershot he's not great as a "six gun" he does a decent job. His alt-mode scales good with metroplex and he pulls off a decent giant gun.

    Walmart never gets Titan Class figures in.......they never got Metroplex, they still don't have Devastator and I doubt they'll get Fortress Maximus or Trypticon

    The box sets look cool, I hope they sell well. I think I'll end up getting Victorion and a Dudicus, but don't think I'll be picking up any of the others, even if G2 Motormaster looks really tasty with the paint work. Other than that Skylynx is the only one I want from Combiner Wars that I don't have. It's still cool that there will be such a selection of box sets for fans.

    For my Liokaizer I am going to wait and see how TFC's attempt turns out, the individual bots look cool, but the narrow hips make me a little nervous.

    I wonder if the leaks are somehow sanctioned, like unofficial teasers released through back channels to keep the fandom's attention and brand awareness, with fans dissecting leaked partial images they are focused on Combiner Wars instead of looking elsewhere to spend their money?

    for Liokaiser I'd have done a reshelled Silverbolt as Leozack. shorter nosecone, longer wings, new gun.

    and for Jaruga i'd have done a new mold Legends, with a missile pod 3rd mode. that could later be repurposed as Beachcomber

    Is there a reason why Aaron is going to Conneticut? I don't think it was ever mentioned. Is it a witness protection thing? Is he on the run from the mob?

    Also, where is this lick video? I'm morbidly curious.

    I'm looking at becoming an on-site liaison for a short period of time for my company with our customer. They're in Connecticut and I'm in Indiana.

    I can't believe it took Vangelus several episodes of Big Bang Theory to get sick of it. I can barely get past the opening crap & theme song.

    I am also really glad that fucking set tanked. So, so glad.

    This feels like when a show has an episode that suddenly focuses on different characters and setting because the studio was too cheap for a pilot. And worse yet, I enjoyed listening to it more than when Kamen Rider was the tangent.

    I can't stand that show either. You've probably had someone talk on and on about how you'd really like it. Ya know, because your a nerd. Meanwhile all you can do is sit there and let your hatred of that show grow and grow.
    The general public doesn't seem to understand how BigBangTheory can come off as offensive. Not every science fiction enthusiast is a socially odd OCD man-child living in their parents basement. Sheldon is every bit offensive in my opinion as Jar-jar Binks, Steve Erkel, or little black Sambo.

    This episode needs more Lego. Seriously, you should drag the show in for another half hour every episode.

    And Vangelus, Australia feels your pain. It's like our currencies are locked in a race to the bottom :( 


    Offensive is hardly the word I would use for BBT. I'm a pretty big nerd and I don't actually mind the show. It's given me a good chuckle every know and then.

    I didn't find BBT offensive in its depictions, so much as trying way too hard. It's moreso this thing that happens whenever I catch a Chuck Lorre sitcom. I walk in on an episode, and it gets me to go "heh heh" once or twice. But the longer I'm exposed to the material, the more that the fronts and backs of every segment of quipping exchange becomes louder and obnoxiously boldfaced, to me. It crosses this small line where I feel like every character Is Speaking Entirely In Capitalized Words And I Am Supposed To Pay Attention And Be Impressed By The Flow! I dunno it's hard for me to describe.

    So, I think if UW Blast-Off turns out to be a unique figure, we will end up seeing a brand new Leozack and Jaruga for Liokaiser, and Scattershot will have further retooling.

    Also, pie in the sky dream for E-Hobby Deathcobra.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks these small black and white half picture leaks are actually pretty stupid. Especially the latest with Fortress Maximus, what's the point of leaking half a picture when we've already seen the official, in color reveal of the character?


    Anyway, speaking of Fortress Maximus in IDW, we've already have him, Cerebros was mentioned recently, and we have Spike on Earth. Just have to get those guys together and give Max a Titan upgrade.

    So happy to hear you guys talking about Jaruga. I see all of these mentions of Jallguar in the Liokaiser threads and I've been wondering if I lost my mind.

    Hey there! While unfortunately I don't have room for you in my apartment, I do live in the Milford, CT area, so I will keep my eyes and ears open.
    If you'd like, you can pm me with roughly what area of CT you'll be looking to stay.
    And of course, I would be happy to send you my contact info, in case there's anything you need.

    Best of luck!

    I would relate it to Steve Erkels "Did I do that" line. You hear it over and over and by third or fourth time you start to get annoyed. I don't begrudge people for liking it. To each their own. I like others I'm sure, have had way too many relatives, friends, and co-workers tell me "oh you're a toy collector/science fiction enthusiast you should watch BBT.
