Also, any plans of writing an Android/ iO app? It would be great to check out bookmarked topics or receive updates(especially in sightings) without having to load the full version of Seibertron...


What is the error message that you are receiving, Autobot Joe? I haven't encountered any errors with this. Just copy and paste the error so that I can look into it further. Thanks!

I already trashed that email...darn...

It doesn't always happen, but occasionally, if I post in a topic I will be automatically subscribed. My email notifications go through the roof depending on how hot the topic is and when I click the Unsubscribe link, it will take me to the topic page and all it says is "an error occurred when trying to unsubscribe". If I retry a couple of times, it eventually works.

The next time it happens, please make sure you copy and paste the exact error message so that I can see what is happening. I certainly don't want people to have trouble unsubscribing to posts.

No plans. With the way mobile/portable devices and the web are converging at the moment, I'm not sure that the need will be there. I've been working on modifying the site to be friendlier on mobile devices to help resolve some of the problems that you are having.

Responsive web design is the direction I'm taking Seibertron.com. You can read more about Responsive web design at http://mashable.com/2012/12/11/responsive-web-design/ or https://www.google.com/search?num=50&sa ... z1IVCScStQ

spent the weekend out at the motor city comic con.had a great time but didnt find much in the way of toys. bought a TON of IDW transformesr books though. monstrosity and Chaos graphic novels, a dozen spotlight books from 07-09 and a complete set of last stand of the wreckers! can't wait to read that one.

i also cancelled my springer/blitzwing preorder and put in for a sandstorm case instead so it'll be a little while until i get mine i imagine.

Hey gang!

Been a while, hope everyone's doing well!

Picked up Springer and Blitzwing at the West Lansing Walmart tonight. Also, two days ago I found a stray Sergeant Kup on clearance (!) at the West Lansing Kohls! Had a 30% Kohls coupon, too. 8)

Thanks for checking in, jimi. :grin:

Left a Blitzwing@the Dearborn WM, picked up a Springer for RC13, about 11:30am-ish today. They also have the FOC :BOT: Data Dics, a couple of sets each, for those who haven't acquired them yet.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Thanks for grabbing that for me! But, you may not like them, but you don't have to call them Data Dics! They're nice guys!;-)

got the last three bots for cyberverse abominus from BBTS this week. He's a little underwhelming, but an impressive bit of engineering the way everyone goes together nonetheless. If you're the least bit interested i wouldn't pass them up!

Saline Walmart has 1 Blitzwing. They may also have an opened Springer on the shelf. Don't buy it. There's an issue with the shoulder and it doesn't sit right in car mode. That's why I returned it. They didn't ask me if I had even opened it, so it'll be back on the shelf.

I was able to get another springer that is just fine. He's the frakkin' figure of the year. He's fantastic.

havent found much hunting lately but havent been looking for much. Just waiting for BBTS preorders to arrive.

I did have a sighting a couple weeks ago when i was driving to work wednesday afternoon who should pass me on I94 but our own Highbeam. It made my day. I was all "yay! hi highbeam!"

Not quite a toy but i did score this last week. I can't decide if he's Bluestreak or Blurr!

Motto: "YEAUH!"
Weapon: Energo-Sword
Thanks on the Roseville Walmart post. I am loving IDW Optimus and Bee.

Mini review...
Optimus
He colored great and has a great heroic look to him. All the possibility you expert a deluxe to have. He has 2 accessories a gun Optimus's gun without the butt of it and Roller!. What can I say about it other then... It's Roller! A small all terrain vehicle, and the gun is a double barreled cannon... but don't expect much in the way of bot it is a block with a face and up and down possibility in the arms. His alt mode is cool too, looks good and harkens back to g1 Optimus in style and transformation, it's familiar yet new. He is super tiny and fun to transform. For 10 bucks totally worth it. Perfect desk toy.

Bee
Great colors great look, nice to have an almost to scale IDW bee in his RID comic style. His articulation is something to be desired though, not really that great. His shoulder pads get in the way of the ball joint, he in no way can do a side arm pose. His arm guards get in the way of the elbow bend, and he has a tab for transformation that gets in the way of the knee bend. His head does not turn and only bends down because of transform. I would say get him because he is cheap, but if you are looking poseability like Optimus then I would wait for the deluxe. His accessory looks the part in the alt mode being a helicopter, it's cool looking. As well the gun is pretty cool, but the bot again... meh. His alt mode is great looking, nice little cybertronian looking hatch back of sorts. Bonus the transformation is fun and satisfying.

Over all Optimus is the better buy of the two, a lot of time went in to making him and it shows he is a great toy. Bee there are some issues with him but the size and price why not pick him up. There were way worse toys made in the prime line. * Cough * Airachnid * Cough *
