Hearing Mike's thoughts on the 3rd party Devastators makes me never want to hear his opinion on collecting ever again. He projects so much wish-list fanboy expectation bullshit that it hurts to listen to him.

Bob... Thanks for wasting my time hearing you be a little bitch who isn't going to buy either set. Great info bro.


lol

Keep it coming. I'm completely serious too.

Unfortunately, when we talk about things to be released it is a bunch of subjective sharing. I think everybody has wants and desires for what will happen with certain toys when they are released. When it's a 3rd party company who caters only to fans, I am sure they are trying to get every trick in there that will make somebody want them. So for Mike to make a list of what he wants to see in a perfect version, well, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

We all wanted to shake Bob a little when he said he wouldn't even try a 3rd party Devi, but Bob collects just about every official release out there HASBRO and TAKARA, so I think one can offer him a bit of a break for not wanting to buy all the 3rd party stuff on top of it. Honestly, Devastator is not my favorite combiner, and I would love for someone(s) else to be tackled-- take your pick!

Pig, I know you haven't been around much, or listened to any other podcasts because you should know that it is a bunch of guys BS-ing on TF topics of interest, and not an audio review of our current figs or soon to be released figs. It's not what everyone wants, but hey, we're not paid, we're not official, and we are not awarded things from companies early to try to sell them to the public later on.

Thanks for listening. Sorry it's not what you wanted it to be.

Hope this was also sent to Razorclaw's email cuz I think it has a shot at winning the contest. :lol: Don't agree with any of it, but it's pretty hilarious nonetheless!

Now you guys quit jackin' around and get your hands on the Dev prototypes already...cuz doesn't everyone have access to not just one, but both? I am disappoint! ;)

All I have to say is, love the Podcast. I re-listen to them until a new Podcast comes out. I enjoy hearing all of your opinions, because that's what the Podcast is mainly about.....your opinion.
Keep up the good work. You guys crack me the F up.
Oh, and got my hands on a Transformers: Prime Bumblebee in AZ. Awesome.

Would you all like to do a show where you can call into us?


Alright Counterpunch here is my idea for whose who don't call in Put up a live Twitter feed (like Optibotimus or Peaugh) when you do that episode I'll pitch in and join twitter for that if you agree.

I listened to the podcast & Counterpunch was inaccurate with his statement about maketoy Giant not being cartoon accurate & just being closer to how the toy looked. Maketoy's is way more accurate than the TFC, the only thing TFC's has over Maketoy is the size. If you go back & look TFC's has a lot of the red detailing on their head & it was only their visor's & here/there on their chest. So far Maketoy's doesn't have that & more then likely won't, 2nd in the cartoon you were able to see the treads of Bonecrusher & Scavenger when they merged but TFC took that away, 3rd the head on TFC isn't cartoon or toy accurate especially once again with all the red highlights in & on the head only red he had was his eyes. If you go with merged size & the fact Longhaul does look better, the scoop on the Scavenger looks better in robot mode but Maketoy has them beat in the combined mode especially the head. They have the head looking just like the show & the toy it's just they are debating if they should go visor or regular eyes. TFC's is way too pricey for a extra 2-3 more inches in combined mode & a red gun option along with all the defects the toys have had. So no both are nice but Maketoys Devy is way better all the way around than TFC's in every aspect. One more thing if u wanna have Devy standing way over Superion & Bruticus that most of us have then TFC's is fine to but if you are trying to have more in scale toys with those 2 the Maketoys is the way to go. So I'll be lookin forward to hearing your inaccurate comment corrected by the next podcast thx.

I feel like this argument is the Twilight of Transformers. I'm team Edward, whichever one that is.


EDIT: In all seriousness, I think TFC is trying to capture this Devastator and doing so very well.Image

I agree but that one isn't g1 or cartoon accurate anyone can see that, but its cool though. It's a great concept or modern adoptation of him that is cool. All I'm sayin is ppl are intitled to like whichever one but dont downplay the other one with inaccurate statements.

Not me. Kind of like Animated, a great line in its own it looks like, but at this time, not having any but Arcee and BBee, NYCC Exclusives, I can't say entirely, but based on what I have seen, nope.

I agree. This Prime line looks fantastic but it just doesn't fit in with the Classics figures. Although, I will try Bulkhead once I get him in hand.
