    Takara made Minimus Ambus into Alpha Trion, will they make this Titans War Alpha Trion into a giant Minimus Ambus?

    On another note. I wonder how the Titans War deluxe Headmasters will look next to Generation Voyager Brainstorm.

    I like the idea of Scourge not being a headmaster but it looks like that he still is :/

    I couldn't dislike the name "Takeoff" any more. It's only going to be used to ridicule and otherwise bitch about CW Blastoff not being a shuttle.

    I also kinda hope Strafe is Air Raid rather than Takara Blastoff, but that's just because if he is then Computron will have at least 3 molds that I don't own but was considering when they first came out.

    Take-off is an actual name of an action master toy who I decided to use as a basis for some minor repaint changes I want to do to my hasbro Blast Off. Also I buy a like 30$ two pack of deluxe Groove and shuttle blast off easy.


    As packageing I toss cards but I tend to keep boxes makes easy to move stuff or ship it

    So, I don't actually think Hasbro is going to release proper Blast-Off, considering that they have already revealed the G2 Bruticus set with the Slingshot repaint.

    Yes true but they probably made The plan for the G2 Combaticon set way before they a inkling of what takara bruticus was going to be and shuttle blast off it even done yet

    When I was in 2nd grade a friend got me into hotwheel collecting. The method for opening bubble packaging I learned from him whom he in turn learned from his uncle was to make a U cut. This way if you put the hotwheel or 'what have you' back in the box for display purpose gravity keeps it from coming apart.

    I agree on the leaks. Reveals at toy shows and conventions are so much more exciting when you don't know what's coming. Now it's just like, "Yep, that's still coming out."

    As for boxes, I keep card backs and use to keep boxes, but for boxes I now flatten and keep a few while getting rid of the rest. I keep all my Masterpiece boxes unflattened.

    My Parents bought me that set when I was 2. I still own it. There's a set called "Service City" I was gifted when I was in 1st grade. It was one of my favorite micro machine sets. One weekend I was staying with a friend and my mother sold it in her garage sale. Our neighbors bought it for their spoiled kid. there was a chain fence between us and the neighbors. Not only did I loose one of my favorite possessions I watched the neighbor kid repeatedly run it over, destroying it, with one of his power wheels.

    I would buy a 2 pack with Groove and Blast Off. That would be so awesome.

    I also throw out most of the packaging unless it's an import. I also keep some 3rd party packaging.

    It's from back when the podcast started taking listener voicemails, several of them ended with a click, because of the phone being hung up. Vangelus thought it was satisfying so other people started doing it to accommodate him.

    I so enjoyed Aaron smacking down TJ and Vangelus' Fuzors defenses. Friendly arguments are fun to listen to.
    Oh, and Aaron, Ohio's not the unending drive. That's Pennsylvania. :ev:

    -when it comes to my toy packages, I throw the card back/ boxes away (I kinda have to nowadays, living in a apartment, space is a bit of a commodity.) This includes Import, US, and 3rd Party packages. Once it's open, the package goes in the trash. Not just Transformer packages either. WWE, DC, Marvel Legends go into the trash once they're open. This way, I keep space at home. Also, I play with my toys, then store them in totes/ boxes when I'm not using them
