Since Noah's ark was probably the biggest vehicle mentioned in the Bible, I figured that could be the leader of that group. As for armaments, they could have spears and flaming swords because that's what the angels had to prevent Adam and Eve from returning to the garden of Eden.

Seacons were cool. I had a G1 Overbite that was awesome.

That the one where they're packaged in combined mode, in a mostly-clear box? If so I vaguely recall having seen them for sale at other places than BBTS- perhaps it was a different exclusive in different countries?
I might be getting mixed up with a later reissue if there was one though! Man, I remember seriously considering nabbing one of those reissues up when it took a price cut, kinda regret not doing so. I've heard less-than-great stuff about mold degradation but the seacons are a level of daft fun that's just so appealing

But how does Megatron pretend to shoot things? A literal gun making finger guns seems a little too absurd to me. :P

Is this your way of saying that one of the Megatrons that turns into a tank or jet runs on gas instead of energon or whatever?

I've noticed that when the Decepticons terrorize people in animated cartoons, they always manage to survive either by parachuting from a jet that's been shot down or rescued from an Autobot or several when they're being attacked like in a trailer or something, and I'm wondering if people have ever been shown to be killed by Decepticons.

I don't know if this counts as far as news credits; but those three transforming figures that I took a picture of in my last edit for that want to trade Transformers were ones I saw at Cliff's Books in DeLand, Florida. The place is open from four to seven PM on Monday through Friday and 10 AM to five PM on Saturday. He's got lots of Deluxe class Transformers for sale that are unopened. I'd get that one loose Transformer he has if I knew who it is and what the alt mode looks like.

Think about it.

If Megatron offers you his hand (the one attached to the arm with the fusion cannon attached to it) and he says "pu..."

You know what? Forget it.

I have that. Plastic is cheap and joints sound weak as and feel frail. I got it when it went stupid cheap for about 20 quid but i wouldn't recommend paying any more than that for misb.

Just went back and read your q again. I got the amazon version. So maybe yours came from that stock?

I'm planning to go to the comic book store tomorrow to pick up my comic books because that's what I try to do the last Wednesday of each month, and I'm planning to take my phone along to take pictures of his Deluxe class Transformers that he's got for sale. I'm pretty sure there's a Mirage and a Bumblebee, and there's that Nemesis Prime that would be nice to have if he had the same price that the others do. I did find out that larger Bumblebees can be more challenging because of that Legends class Bumblebee with the Titan Returns, but he's easy enough. GIVE ME THE LARGEST BUMBLEBEE THAT'S EVER COME OUT AND THE INSTRUCTIONS, AND I'LL CONSIDER IT A CHALLENGE TO FIGURE IT OUT WITH EASE! I'm just messing around there in the sense that I'm not begging for a free one. Hopefully, I should be getting a gift card for Target, and I'll be going there to get a few more TTC Transformers and to put that boxed set of TLK Deluxe class Transformers on layaway. It's a fairly steep price because it's $50 for the set; but there are five or six of them in the set; and if they sold them individually instead of the set, it would probably cost a lot more. When it comes to Deluxe class Transformers, I like it better when the instructions are on a pamphlet instead of the package like the ones in the RID series are because they're easier to figure out with a pamphlet.

Possibly. Not sure. I want to say I paid around $40 plus shipping? Either way it wasn't super expensive. I wonder if the BBTS version was bad joint wise? In any case I've got all the original g1 versions minus overbite which I will be getting some time soon.

Well I emailed Hasbro my ideas about biblical Transformers and ancient vehicles. Maybe that idea wouldn't meet the other approval of everyone; but biblical action figures have come out before because I can remember a kid and his dad or maybe both parents looking for a Samson action figure when I was in grade school back in like the early 80's, so I can't imagine why none of the three companies that I know of that are putting out transforming figures wouldn't consider making some that were available only at Bible book and you stores. For all I know, ones like Samson could be still on the market.

There's already too much religion on our world, please leave toys outside this.

If you don't see the issue about religious-oriented transformers or Gijoes or wathever, you definitely have a problem. More than one.

So i checked this topic again because for some reason, after not recieving any notification from this particular topic for a long time, i suddenly got a notification even tough i left no new comments here. And i suddenly found jason5billion pledging to hasbro to make a biblical-themed transformers, as if he is not aware how much ruckus it would raise in today's society if it were to happen.

Apparently not much changed here huh.

Well I tried to take a picture to show at least some of the Transformers available at Walmart, but this stupid phone wouldn't let me. In an attempt to get at least one news credit point, I'm gonna tell what the Walmart super center in Orange City, Florida has. They have one TR Legends class Roadburn, several TR Legends class Bumblebee, several TR Legends class Laserbeak, a few three step turbo changer TLK Grimlock, a two step TC TLK Bumblebee, a few premiere edition TLK Optimus Primes and Megatrons, a one step TC TLK Bumblebee, a Deluxe class RID Strongarm (they have two, but I'm buying one), a combiner force RID Primestrong, one step Combiner force RID red Sideswipes, silver Sideswipes, Bumblebees, Strongarms, and one Optimus Prime.
