    I don't think Armada Prime or Star Convoy were at Toyfair.

    BTW @Vangelus this is probably soundblaster. You can kinda see the end of his name on the box and it looks like -aster

    Also the one on display looks like it’s got the two tape deck, whereas the regular Soundwave version just had the single tape deck.

    Also MP-45 is licensed, there’s a VW logo on the poster at wonderfest

    Ok, my usual pedantic nitpicking about things that you misspoke on aside, serious question for Aaron. What if drift has a tiny internal fan that is spinning in the opposite direction at like three times the speed of his main rotor on the same axis to basically do the same job as a secondary large counter rotor?

    Why overcomplicate like this? Because Michael bay transformer.

    Also I agree with everyone on hightower, his terrible misshapen experiment of a body is what makes him great.

    Out of curiosity i watched a compilation of all Drift's scenes in AoE and can confirm: his helicopter mode is 100 percent CG. They totally gave it that tail rotor cause it looked cool and I guess no one at ILM knew enough or cared enough about helicopters to not do that.

    A much smaller diameter coaxial rotor with a much larger mass or speed or both could counter the torque. However in current human materials sciences it would be a major limiting factor due to material stresses and you’d be much better off with similar sized blades so that it would all balance out. But Movie Magic or some BS.

    Just for the record, Hightower\'s Legend toy was based off of concept art for the movie, which seems to be the inspiration for the Studio Series version as well.

    Also, Cyberverse season 1 did have a regular release schedule, at least on YouTube. They released a new episode every Sunday

    But the videos weren’t viewable in every country, so others had to wait for them to air in theirs by other means to view them.

    THANK GOD Bumblebee is a new franchise! Finally, the Bay-verse is over. I sincerely hope they aren't going to let Lorenzo di Bonaventura touch it anymore 'cause it's good now. Seriously, the fact they kept letting him slither in front of recording devices and open his gob was the scariest thing about this movie's future.

    I need one of the good KO people to take that Omega Supreme and make a voyager sized Spreem out of him!
