    WTF @ TFW - 639 - December 4 2023

    The powers that be have informed me that despite my love of the term "Droop Snoot", I'm not allowed to just have the description of this episode be the words "Droop Snoot" repeated over and over again. The lack of ability to spam "Droop Snoot" on the front page wasn't a decision of Vangelus', who particularly enjoys the words "Droop Snoot". The "Droop Snoot" discussion was specifically the cause of "Droop Snoot" expert Aaron, who brought the "Droop Snoot" to the table, and the constant use of the words "Droop Snoot" was not impeded by TJ this month either. Droop Snoot.

    "[2:14:35] - [OFF-TOPIC] LEGO Concord"

    Concord is a grape. Concorde is a plane. Only one of them has a droop snoot. :)

    It's a variant and in no way just a typo.

    Swoop's got an internal listing at a retailer. Cliffjumper there's been nothing announced, but there is the Earthrise/Buzzworthy release out there for you.

    THE WEIRDEST 2-PACK HE SAYS. Someone did not account for Hasbro actively hating us.

    I have also dropped into ZAP with the deep discounts they were on and I think they're fantastic toys when you can get them for less than $100 USD. I've wanted a Dino Megazord with knees (for under $100) for years and ZAP scratches that itch.

    I dare you to find one Transformers fan of Mexican descent that finds the Jointrons offensive

    You got one right here, and I think they're hilarious

    Shadow Striker I think comes off as especially disappointing because the pipeline teaser was Cyberverse, and her packaging refers to her as the Cyberverse character, but she’s clearly not. She’s clearly the Botcon Shadow Striker and had they just not done any retooling to differentiate it from Sideburn then they could have done a much more faithful homage for less effort.

    Cyberverse Shadow Striker was a much stronger design, but it never got a proper toy, and with this being labeled as that particular version of the character, the box is likely checked and she’s now off the list for a very long time. All to get another use out of the tooling for the worst car brother.

    I can’t be mad because the headsculpt is phenomenal and the figure is okay, but it’s just one of those moments where you go “man, I wish you’d have just not done it at all if this was the way you were going to do it”.

    I feel like such the oddball for really liking Legacy Shadow Striker. She ended up being a real surprise for me and I appreciated how different the design is from recent car bots. Fully agree on the bumper though, would’ve preferred either to completely integrate it into the rest of the toy or go full homage and make the bumper a proper gun rather than just a piece of the car that comes off.
