Steve is a generic name frequently afforded to nameless minions by fans. Not sure where it started, but it's a pretty common thing to do. :lol:

Other examples: In Chuggaaconroy's LP of Pikmin, he refers to a red pikmin as "Steve."

It personifies a character that otherwise has no character or development to speak of, but is obviously a sentient character.



Ahh, thanks! :lol: That does make it funnier now. Too bad the Vehicons have no personalities to speak of.


I want to say the first use of Steve being attributed to the Vehicons came from fellow Seibertron user Godzillabot Primal (God bless his little soul, he will surely be missed), but I'm not quite sure. :???:

I always call nameless minions Steve, and I know there are others that do it out of habit as well, lol. And the Vehicons -have- spoken on occasion, so we've caught snippets of their personas.

Actually there was a Cheerios commercial that came out around the same time as Prime did. Someone voiced over that cheerios commercial over a clip from Starscream smacking a Vehicon at the point where it said "SHUT UP STEVE!"

I know what you're getting at but it's not what your words say, just FYI.
I'm gonna be honest, I like that there's diversity between the Cyberverse line and the bigger line, rather than them just being big and small versions of the same characters. But on the other hand, I would like it if some characters like Hardshell and the Jet/Air Vehicon got larger toys. I'd also like if the Terrorpreds got more articulated figures, but I'm okay with their sizes. Even Hun-Gurrr's.

That Bot wrote:Hasbro can't do Deluxe Jet Vehicon without pulling all that extra plastic for the wings from some other deluxe figure, which would probably make it Scout-sized. They most likely have not engineered or prepared such a figure to fill out the Prime line, so short of a run of all-Jet Vehicons which would most stores probably wouldn't buy and which might break shipping weight limitations, the best we can hope for is that they get used as some convention exclusive or something.


Why not put the Jet Vehicon in a bigger box and call it a VOYAGER? :HEADHURTS: Add a light-up gizmo and some extra weapons to fill it out, and BAM: Jet Vehicon's CAN be sold in the USA!

I don't understand why Hasbro didn't consider doing that with Breakdown. I get he's too expensive for Voyager class, but add some stuff/accessories and bump him up to "Weaponizer" class or whatnot. $30 for Breakdown is much better than $60. :BANG_HEAD:

Re: Cyberverse Jet Vehicon - THIS is why I even started collecting the Cyberverse line: too many figures not seeing deluxe release (i.e. Tailgate and other recolors). Plus, it's the only way to obtain Skyquake with a reasonable amount of effort and cash.

I can't wait to see how scarce these Jet Vehicon's are! :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: :BANG_HEAD: With all of us considering an army of them, I can see a collector clearing out a store inventory in one trip and no restocks for months (if at all). :HEADHURTS:

Then everyone would complain that we're paying too much for such a "small voyager."

Add a light-up gizmo


Where have you been, kid? They dropped that gimmick.

Why do they need to release a deluxe character that only showed up in the cartoon in a flashback for 10 seconds? Besides, Tailgate's the only "recolor" from the show. And may I remind you that during PRiD there were only five toy-only characters out of a toyline with 22 figures. They didn't need to fill it up with more toy-only "nobodies," because in Prime, the toyline's there to accommodate the show, not the other way around.

Isn't there still one more Beast Hunters deluxe figure that's unannounced? They made Shockwave and Smokescreen with added armor and they made brand new molds for Dreadwing, Bulkhead and Starscream. So I think the last one will be either Breakdown, a Vehicon of some sort or Airachnid.

Meaning we can still get a Hasbro new mold version of a Jet Vehicon or Breakdown, a new mold for Airachnid or, in a worst case scenario, a heavy retool of the car Vehicon in Beast Hunters spikes/colors.

Well the only wave 5 figure we know about so far is Prowl from Smokescreen. It's a toss-up at this point whether his wavemate will be a new/retooled mold or a straight redeco. I personally hope for a Ser-Ket redeco of the Ripclaw mold before the line finishes.

You can't please the fandom is a COP-OUT. Do a cursory look and you'll notice something amazing! It's called "repetition". There are lots of opinions out there, but isn't it amazing how even the ones that get repeated a few thousand times still don't matter? What you're doing is comparing 5 people's opinions against that of a few hundred - go ahead and ignore the 5 people, but don't tell me Hasbro should ignore a concentrated opinion of say, "please release Hardshell as a Voyager!!!" It's always sad to me when a business goes Nintendo - call yourself hardcore but remember that the non-customers are paramount (because they outnumber your loyal customers and equal infinite profit potential). :roll:

The light up feature was used in the Prime Voyagers, so I don't know what you're talking about. If it's a spring-loaded, transforming gun that also lights up, that doesn't count as "light up"? :roll:

Prime comes before the toys? You do realize Hasbro is a toy company, right? The toys are ALWAYS first. As much integrity as you think Prime has (and I think so, too), I don't know how it's so easy for you to assume that Hasbro didn't lay out certain directives in relation to how they were planning the toys.

I didn't mean Tailgate should be a deluxe, per se (as his character wasn't even relevant). I was just hoping for more deluxes. And for the record, if they have the Cliffjumper mold already, it's not a big thing to recolor and re-release him as Tailgate (as they did with the legion). So I'm not even sure why you're against a deluxe Tailgate... :BANG_HEAD:
