I'm of one of those who's a bit disappointed by the toy-accurate colors on the show-accurately molded MP Rodimus Prime toy that Hasbro is releasing, and I get that there are those who want to have a enough differentiation between the two to want to get both, and that's fine. But there are those, like me, who do not have the money to get both, and only want one definitive version so that there is no need to get a second version when the perfect one has already been bought. That said, should I ever get any version of the MP Rodimus Prime toy, I'd wait and get the second run of the Takara one with its improved quality control, or not at all. Masterpieces are already expensive as they are (even the Hasbro ones), so getting duplicates of the same MP mold is just out of the question for someone in my position.
I think what would be really cool would be if someone were to take the head of Kre-O Optimus Prime and use it to replace the head of Diablock Convoy, so as to have a fully transformable LEGO-esque Transformer with a really nice head to go with it. *hears his name mentioned*
Huh, what? Oh, sorry, my mind kinda drifted there for a sec (multi-tasking here).
Eh, let's see... "Zaur"? Who--? Oh, the obscure Japanese cassette dude (or one of them, at least). Uhh... yeah, "Zaur". No comment here.
Did not know that about Minerva's antennae being made by the instructor himself instead of Hasbro. Still kinda sad about missing out on it, though.
I love both Animated and Masterforce to death, so to me this figure thus looks really really nice.
Oh, DUDE! That would be so AWESOME if SG Thundercracker glowed in the dark! Didn't get the figure, but that would still rock!
Thundercraker has a red Con symbol. I held him at BotCon, but was kinda sad that he wasn't like last year's Slice, who could be both Slicer and SG Wheeljack due to having both purple Bot and Con symbols. Sadly, Thundercracker is only his SG self.
"Donkey Punch"? Lolwut?
... ... Huh? Oh, another mention. Uhh... yeah. BWII Thrust. What you said. Right on.
Between Grapple and Grappel, which one do you think looks nicer? RtS or United? I missed out on both, so I dunno.
11 years of awesome, Ryan. 11 years of awesome.
Did Jon do that closing voice over after the rest was recorded, or was that a recycled recording of his voice from before?
Nice job and can't wait for the next one.
