    Boy was I surprised to see Drexler's unused NX-01 refit model kit on TFW just now.

    I enjoyed the episode! While I can't think of any weird box sets ideas, I wanted to chime in on the 3rd party discussion.
    I recently started selling off almost all my 3rd party stuff (and I don't plan on buying anymore) because Hasbro is getting around to putting out the same characters. Due to being on a budget, I'd rather pay Hasbro prices. I also starting getting very tired of how long and complicated some companies made their transformations. Whatever Fansproject called their Motor Master and Menasor set, it took me like an hour to transform it. It looked nice on a shelf, but I didn't find the experience fun. So aside from Fanstoys Iron Dibots (Masterpiece Dinobots), I'm out of the 3rd party game.

    Dammit Chris. Don't make me have to remember how to use mod commands to remove that blasphemous image.

    Here's what I know about Star Trek

    1. Picard is better than Kirk
    2. Lt. Cmdr Data is better than Spock
    3. The reboot movies are over rated

    I would say more but there's an angry mob with pitchforks and torches outside my door.

    a goofy idea for an SDCC set?! Luchadores.
    take 4 deluxe class figures, include fabric Lucha masks, and make the packaging insert a cardboard pop-up ring. maybe include a fullsized wearable Lucha mask. if its in the budget

    So in this episode, Aaron was asking about the design element under the bumper. It carries over from the animation design (attached), except for the fact that they got it completely wrong.

    In the animation, the bumper goes completely away, and you just have the headlights & the weird element. Leaving the bumper in place feels like a 2nd bellybutton to me, and is something I dislike on the MP design.

    What if Doublecross is the name of the body and Twinferno is the head? Though I supose the other way around makes more sense

    SDCC goofy set, a Combiner Wars team as a Doo Wop group. All weapons combine to form a mic and mic stand.

    same, but I'm also very glad to see it gaining notice, in my opinion, it makes perfect sense to upgrade the nx as the federation formed, and then the federation begins to produce the later classes using multi-species techniques.


    anyway, just, uh, trek-y rambling.

    Woah I've never seen that ship. Looks like the NX-01 mixed with the OS Enterprise. Cool.

    Okay, this is an exceedingly dumb question, but is the Titans Return toy a Rodimus or a Hot Rod? Like, he turns into a space car so he ought to be a Hot Rod right? I ask because I went into the MP 28 conversation wondering if I could get away with making that a "Rodimus" for my collection and the answers I got were basically "what no, it's Hot Rod." But then I listen to you guys and he's a Rodimus. I know they're the same guy, I guess I'm just kind of confused about what differentiates them when they aren't within the context of the G1 cartoon.

    I use Hot Rod and Rodimus interchangeably myself, now that he's been both for so long. And in Japan he was Hot Rodimus, so whatevs~
