I just sold and transformed Alternators Swerve to ship. I didn't notice any GPS issues at all. Sorry for your losses guys, I was hoping to maybe add to that discussion. I was as careful as possible with his hands though after hearing the first half of the podcast.
The Deadpool game isn't out yet. Sales of an unreleased game couldn't possibly have been the reason High Moon had to trim down. Adding insult to injury, I couldn't possibly care less about a Deadpool game, comics or anything related to the character. I bought and enjoyed the comics for a long time. Eventually a string of poor writing and poor stories overall broke my connection to it. Reading some of that stuff again is horrendous. I would have much rather gotten more fantastic TF games from those folks for a long time to come.
I really enjoyed the guest for these episodes. I'm interested in checking out the pop up books now if not adding them to my shelf. He seemed to add a lot to the conversation and bring up more talking points and counterpoints. Overall, a joy to listen to.
I'm nearly current on my comic trades. More Than Meets the Eye is hands down my favorite TF comic we've EVER gotten. What started with Last Stand continues in that book and it just captures me. The combination of humor, wit and sharp artwork is a winner. RID is alright too but everyone is so 90's Marvel in it. Grim and dark. Regeneration One? Man, Simon Furman really is a one trick pony with Transformers comics isn't he? Easily my least favorite of the current stuff. Don't get me started on Livio Ramondelli. Transformers is not where he should be making his home. His style fails miserably here.
As far as toys go, I haven't been able to find jack lately. I'm STILL hunting for Beast Hunters Shockwave. No dice on Cyberverse Hun Grr. I can't even find the single pack Kreons. Papa needs a Hook! I did run across Blitzwing and Springer. They look like great figures. Springer has got some in your face deco going on though. It's almost G2 loud. I'm waiting to see what Takara pull off before I commit. I'm really looking forward to getting solid info about final decos for Metroplex and confirmation on whether or not Metrotitan is in the works. Oh, and Fort Max came in. Mine has minimal issues and I am tickled pink to finally have him in my collection. Now Brave Max finally has a weapon to hold in the Master Sword.
All in all, good stuff guys.
::EDIT:: The racing queens wouldn't fit inside Alternators scale either even if they were that large. Microman figures are slightly shorter/smaller than a standard GI Joe.
