rule #1 of Cyberverse: DO NOT SKIP AHEAD!!! You will get lost if you miss it, it is highly serial in Season 3 for a majority of it.
That Ironhide/Prowl pack triggered a "nope" reaction for me. It's slowly killing Earthrise for me, I find myself wanting less and less as we go.
I gave up tracking coneheads, We know they are coming, but how I no longer really care. I'm actually hoping Thrust is a Target Redcard exclusive, just for fun.
Cobs, SS VW Bee is one of the weakest of the line, and the transformation and alt mode are definitely some very weak points of the figure.
I really like Sentinel, he is a really solid figure, the detailing is intricate, the paint work is pretty nice, the face sculpt is so good! He is a great figure, he has a few weak points, but overall the good far outweighs the bad.
Sentinel was bigger than Optimus by a bit, but I agree the current SS Optimus needs to be maybe 5% larger.
I'm still waiting on Scrapper. He just got delayed. again.
G1 Doubledealer is a great G1 toy, probably the best G1 toy I own. all of the Powermasters are fantastic dudes.
Some of those mid-RiD2015 figures were truly hard to get. I felt so blessed when I found Springload (the frog into pickup truck guy!), same with Groundbuster (gorilla dude), Crazybolt too! That is a figure i never found, not sure I want to now, but that was a figure impossible to find.
Nice Cyberverse Hot Rod Scotty! I'm still trying to find Whirl, and i'll probably try to wait out Hot Rod and Grimlock as in-store purchases. Same with Arcee. Probably not thunderhowl so I can complete Maccadam.
I'm pretty excited for Arcee and Thunderhowl, both toys look really cool.
Scotty/Cobs: Thunderhowl is a wolf, and he has a nice spotlight episode, and then serves as a background for the rest of the show.
Perfect day for a parade!

Oh, very cool! I have a favor to ask: if we ever sound actually old and out of touch, please say so. I worry about it as a 30-something. Maybe when I stop worrying about it is the signal I've actually become old and out of touchMr.MicroMaster wrote:I'm graduating High School in a couple weeks and I think I have been listing to a you guys since the 7th grade or in Transformers toyline time since Combiner Wars. I haven't caught every episode but I always enjoy it when I do.
Look up Universal Studios Japan's night parade, some very cool imagery. I grabbed a cgi photo from their site since front page needs to look pretty, but there are actual pictures folks have taken online and it still looks like a really cool experience.TulioDude wrote:That Megatron image you guys used for the banner is pretty cool.Where it is from?
