I never thought about how expressive the Jhiaxus wings could be! I like them posed straight up, that is a sweet look.

I feel like a bit of a bum since I have no version of that mold at all.

and Cram, that is such a cool head swap, and I love that evil shark Ramjet head!

Thanks D-Max. I thought it was cool and then Cary said "you aren't cool unless you Ultra Magnus".

Also, fav GG? Whichever one is making me laugh at the moment, probably ma.

AND!!

GO

I feel like some kid tried to trade me the beetle for Hot Rod when I was a kid. Well, I don't have it or my original G1 Hot Rod. Effing thieves.

Hey! I never once said anything about not being cool. I only said UM's head would also look cool... and maybe cooler to me. But I'm a UM Fanboy :x


Flipping theives indeed :-x


So I have a theory-ish about certain sitcoms. GG may fit into this theory. Basically the main star of the show tends to be the normal/sane/balanced personality, where the other characters are typically one-sided or have a very distinctive defining characteristic. Almost to the point of the other characters being physical manifestations of the main characters other sides/personalities. I think Sex in the City is probably where I first noticed it. Golden Girls, How I Met Your Mother, The New Girl all seem to follow this pattern to a degree. With the exception of GG, all those other shows are stuff my wife watched and then sucked me into. I'm pretty sure I'm forgetting some, I'll think on it.

Thoughts?

I completely agree with your sitcom statement. My question is, who's the normal/same one in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia then? :lol:

Never seen it but I'm going with no one. And my half baked theory only applies to a few shows. I should check the TV tropes website.

I did but didn't have much to add because I guys seemed to have nailed it but I then forgot about it :oops:

Nice colab ;)^

Stull looking for exactly my theory, but here are a couple close ones:

Be careful, TV tropes can be a real rabbit hole. I fall down it a lot with video games.

I'm in love with this little dino! Very impressed with the BeastBox figure. Articulation is limited, but the build and deco are great. It's a fun little novelty transforming toy and I want the rest ;)^


Puddles is definitely a rabbit hole worth following

EDIT: derp, forgot alt-mode

They should really get on making a companion cube deco, just saying.

YELLOW ERRYWHERE!!!!!!

Beastie is cool! Love his tiny lil rex hands.
I know why you like him. He looks like he could fit right into the Mega Man world. They all look like cool little video game critters.
What does he measure in box mode? The Ape and the Mammoth are 2 inches in each direction. I was thinking the dino is smaller, but not sure.

Also love that tubby tummy on Bee. So what inspired you to pick him up, after being pretty happy (I think) with TR Bee?
was it the lil Ravage to go with the Soundwave you already have?

He's neat though. Looks like a cool simple little transformation, and he come with a gun damnit!

What's up with the HOT key?

You know, I think you're right, he is totes Mc Mega Dino cool. I'd say about 1.5" across. Just a bit smaller than the others.

I was so impressed with their Soundwave and Ironhide I wanted to get more. Ravage was a pretty big selling point. He is a little chubber iddint he? Love alt-mode, so G1 SD-licious! Bot mode leave a little to be desired and not quite as nice as the other two and that hollow back. I figured a bit of a way to make it look better though. He comes with two back plates, a spare tire and bump they call nostalgia mode.

He's neat though. Looks like a cool simple little transformation, and he come with a gun damnit!
He is neat and the TF is fun and that gun is MP right on. He won't knock your socks off, but worth the small price of admission.

What's up with the HOT key?
That's the cassette case that Ravage comes in - hot hot hot... soldiers yo!

Oh hey! I just remembered. My buddy who I may have enabled to get a few BeastBOXes was showing me that not only is there the triceratops coming, but also a rhino who looks pretty dang rad. He showed me grey proto pics. I'll see if I can hunt them down later.

Yeah, the alt mode is the best. Not a bad figure, I should compare it to TR Bee and see what's what.

The Legend(ary) Buzz Off!

Motto: "shelf space may be fleeting, but plastic is forever"
aka Titans Returns legends class Bumblebee vs Mech Planet Hot Soldiers Big Yellow Bee

ALT-MODE!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Big surprise, I prefer everything about mp Bee's alt-mode. Size, shape, SD, paint; the nostalgia boner is strong with this one. I am using the "nostalgia bump" on his hinder. TR Bee does have one advantage here (even if the implementation is a little half-assed).

Image
Oh, hai!

BOT MODE!
Image
Image

Note the un-kid friendly pointy horns of the 3p figure :twisted: the head is also a dead ringer for the Masterpiece figure as well. I held mp Bee in front of MP bee this morning and the head perfectly overlapped. The entire bot mode of mp Bee is almost like a simplified version of MP Bee with the big difference being he is the goddamn correct COLOR!

Image
Image
Image

Other than the obvious bias, mp Bee has a very decisive advantage over TR Bee.

Image
Pew Pew Pew!

They are both hollow from behind in different ways. Adding either the bump or spare tire to mp Bee and tilting the back flap out a bit helps fill in the back a bit. How 'bout dat gun yo? Very MP, no? Articulation is pretty much the same on both, but TR has some unfortunate kibble and awkward joint placment.

Image
Image

Round kick to the face, I'm calling mp the clear winner. For $8 more, you get a much better toy and a gun ;)^
