The place to be to discuss Transformers, toys, and games in general!

My god, Carol, look at this third-party Tarn...

It's almost $150, but it looks magnificent.

That is really amazing.

I haven't read the stuff about the DJD yet. But I like the idea that Megatron would set up a secret police.

The DJD make for some gnarly villains, for sure. There's an IDW sale going on at Comixology right now if you wanted to pick up some MTMTE on the cheap.

In regards to toys, I heard we're getting a Dinobot Combiner, Volcanicus, who looks a little something like this:

Pretty excited for the Dinobots. Grimlock will be a Voyager size, the other four classic Dinobots will be Deluxe class. The raptor at the bottom is a Legends class, and is the first canonically female Dinobot. Her name is Slash.

We're also getting several of the female Autobots, like Elita-1 and Moonracer, that will also form a combiner. I'll try to find pictures.

The Power of the Primes line will basically have gimmicks from both of the previous lines. The toys will be combiners again, and will be compatible with Combiner Wars. Instead of Headmasters, the Legends toys will be Pretender shells that transform into weapons and come with Headmaster sized guys that "contain the sparks of the original Primes." Those little guys will activate gimmicks on the bigger toys, like armor.

Oh yeah, and we're getting a full set of Terrorcons as well. Plus Darkwing and Dreadwind, who will combine together into a superjet like their G1 toys.

Pretty cool stuff! I'll probably at least get Sinnertwin, since I had the original, the "Rodimus Unicronus" since those are the colors he's rocking in MTMTE right now, and the Shrapnel/Skrapnel since I bought Kickback not too long ago.

Like Devastator, Predaking will be sold as a set. Each Predacon will be Voyager class.

So I ordered Overlord from BBTS a couple of days ago, but I also ordered Rewind so he and Chromedome can be together.

It's only today that I realized what I've done...I've trapped Rewind in a box...with Overlord! I'm sorry, Rewind. I'm really sorry...

Rewind is a great figure, as is the Frenzy remold. I'm really surprised that Hasbro or Takara didn't repaint them as Eject and Rumble. That should have been easy money for them.

Hasbro doesn't always make the obvious move, for sure.

Sure, but I figured Takara would have done it.

I did hear a rumor that they may show up in the Power of the Primes. They are re-releasing Shrapnel.

I like the design, and I also like how they manage to maintain the theme-naming with the rest of the non-Grimlock Dinobots.
Sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Often my breakfast itself encompasses four of them.
