Toys Missing from the Sightings Page

I figured we needed a new one of these.

Ryan, are you going to add the movie prequel toys to the sightings page?

At the moment, I don't think so unless some Classics are missing. Aside from what's already up, nothing new is coming out for a while.

Good point. If we put it up now, then some users (not naming names, but you know who you are :-x ) will start making fake sightings.

I would also recommend the new SWTFs. I think they are due out before the movie toys?

As much as I would love to see that, I agree it should stay off for now. I think the next things to go up should be Fallen and Cheetor if they haven't already been added. Maybe the SWTFs but I don't think there do out for a while.

Menasor, not Motormaster, but it is meant to be the latter.

All of Legends Wave 2 (Menasor, Bumblebee, Whirl, Jetfire) is missing - are they in stores? I haven't noticed.

How are we about packaging varients? As 83457W422102 and I know all too well, Canada gets boned on 6" Titanium packaging. Before, it all came in Megatrons box, but now it comes in Classics style packaging. I'm aware that it isn't a new figure or anything like that, but should differnt box types be added as well.

Slings and Arrows welcomed.

Hold up, they come in Classics packaging now? Damn. I haven't seen any past Scourge, Thundercracker and OpOp in Quebec yet. I'll go scouting today and see if I can find some of them new boxes.

I've asked some of the guys in the Canadian Sightings thread for pics, as I can't get to a TRU like I use to. As far as I know, RID Prime and Screamer come in the new packaging.

Why would you want to put them in the sightings page? Unless you mean the KO swoop floating around on eBay?

Oops... :oops:

I misread the title of the thread. I was thinking that this was Ryan's thread asking which toy gallery should be done next. :P

When I was looking in the toy section, I noticed the Dinobots weren't there. Sorry for being off topic.

No biggie, you just misread the topic is all. I wouldn't mind seeing the Dinobots get Ryans treatment in his galleries.

I asked Ryan about that in the old Gallery thread and he said he was waiting until he got all of the G2 Dinobots before he did the galleries.

Hi,

I'm not familiar with how difficult making a website is and all. However, I owuld love a search function with the sightings which could let us sort by state and then by a date range. Thus I could see all that is currently in my area. I twould make the function a lot more user friendly imo.

Ofcourse, as I said, I do not know how complicated this would be. Just an idea.

Seibs and the rest of the Mods have discussed this before and it is one of the many many upgrades we plan on doing to the site in the future. I personally push the hell out of the sightings section, so I too have a "bigger and brighter" ideas for the sightings section. I would like to see the same things you have mentioned along with a graph of what was sighted and by who and how many sightings each user has posted. Perhaps also a sort of "estimate generator" that would let fans get a rough idea of when the newest figures might be arriving based on a sightings formula. Again, all nice ideas, just needs time to cook.

As for sightings, I wouldn't mind seeing WW Megatron and G1 Magnus in there for the Titaniums, as I should be able to pick them up in Toronto either this wednesday or next.

OK, I figured that in was somewhere along in the works. As you mentioned ight be cool to put a sightings count under posts count as people like to watchtheir numbers move up. Might give some who would not report some encouragement to post what they see.

And Titanium Magnus is due out next Wednesday??!!! :grin: :lol: :grin:
