How did the clubs subscription service work exactly last year and could you recommend which method of payment to use -i didn't get it last year because i joined too late but im interested if chromedome and treadshot are in it-i had the action master of tread shot- but with the club being -kinda crazy i would like advice on what you recommend having dealt with their craziness.

also thanks for answering my questions -i have been doing some testing and ive found 2000 grit sand paper is really good on figures -extremely fine can remove some bad paint apps -found at most automotive stores-also clear acrylic is good for sealing paint repairs -worked well on vector primes chest orb

Dear God, WHY?!

And specifically, if you have any insight into why Hasbro is upscaling Cyberverse figures, would you please tell us?

recently the two main comic series are about to have their characters made into toys or are featuring more toys as characters. we saw it with the spotlights which are going to be packed with the characters but also other stuff. scoop showed up in rid 20 and we are seeing a tailgate, swerve, skids and whirl from mme. Plus we are seeing waspinator coming out and with a rhinox figure coming out and a the appearance of rattrap in the comics im thinking we may be seeing more characters from the comic as toys and the toys effecting the comic. What are your thoughts?

Also with a whirl coming out do you think they could retool him into highbrow from the head master team? As he is also a copter and they did something similar with springer and sandstorms mold

interesting talk on third party enhancements following charitcon,

but apart from third party attachments/figurines, what non-hasbro/takara equipment do you feel should be essential to any collector?

I'm looking for some type of affordable diorama background, nothing as elaborate as Jon's, any suggestions?

So what are your opinions upon the concept; movie toys possibly being grouped in with generations? Personally I don't mind it, but it's caused some people to be a touch irate.

How's it any different from what's happened before? The Generations line has never had any set aesthetic. It's currently going on its fourth one now with the IDW toys.

I personally don't see a deference or care, but I know some think that movie is it's own separate section and shouldn't mix with whatever neo-C.H.U.G line there is.

There have been Movieverse molds in the Generations line before. Specifically, GDO Sandstorm, Laserbeak, Brawl, Dead End, Springer, Powerdive, and Megatron all used Movie molds (just ones that weren't designed by Paramount).

Kinda makes one try to remember how folks felt about the 2007 movie line using molds from Cybertron and Classics when they did those Walmart exclusive Deluxes back then (I had only just recently joined the site back then, so I can't fully recall what the reactions were). :o)

Do you have a separate shelf for your Reveal the Shield, United, and various movie line figures that fit the Classics theme since they're not a part of 'CHUG'?

"CHUG" is mostly a generalized term to refer to any Classics-style figure regardless of whether or not they were actually released within any of the four lines that make up the acronym. Like, Reveal the Shield Special Ops Jazz is considered to be the CHUG version of Jazz despite his being a RtS figure. People don't expand the term to include initials from other lines since "CHUG" gets the point across fine and any additional letters make it look a bit ridiculous (i.e. - CTHUGURTS, CHUGTHULU, it's like trying t fit all of the TF: Prime toyline names into one long group when "Prime" works just fine over "TFPFERIDAMDEBHPRG" :P ). ;)

Thanks for the contributions - we take (almost) all your questions, we just don't take them all seriously ;)

Anyhow, we're not recording on this topic for awhile, but since this thread is sometimes a slow mover - if you have any questions about G1 toy collecting, post 'em!
