Time to go! Monday morning all!

Hothouse: pretty decent looking, I pre-ordered him. I wish there had been something new tooling-wise, but still happy to get the 4th base!

I like that Groundshaker idea! I've learned a lot about the micros this year thanks to the bases. I would really like a Skyhopper too. That seems like a cool vehicle. I still want to see a Grandus, and throw in some micros with him too. Still kinda wish that Star Convoy and the Powered Masters had had their micros, but at least the headmasters and CW Rodimus sort of sub in for those.

Micros riding beasts would be neat! But, don't forget the Orca-base and Airachnid base thingies, we could do those with Micros!

I'd also like to see more micromaster combiners, like if they would do just one I could feel happy.

For some reason, I also want a Flattop. I want the baby seeker with Broadside styled ride.

Scorponok sounds pretty good! I am excited for him, but it will be interesting to see if I like him more than Omega.

while I agree the legs were a bit overengineered on Doubledealer, I love that toy so so much. He is my favorite non-SS leader in a long time. He's so much fun! I still enjoy the bird mode, it's still pretty dang fun.

Also, you guys should try Archangel Doubledealer mode. Putting those wings out in robot mode is so sweet.

I'm looking forward to the space shuttle micromaster guys. I am ready to have the full spaceport once they arrive.

I love my Sky Lynx. The wings could have used some more tabs or something to hold the wings in place, and the bird legs are a little too close together, but otherwise, he is spectacular. I love him a lot, the Lynx mode is my favorite. I think I will display them as 2 beings instead of 1 so that way I can have the Lynx actually be out. I also think they did as good a job with Sky Lynx's base mode as they did Omega. I really like those 2 together. Well worth the price.

Ya should have taken advantage of the $30 Overload from Amazon as a backup Scotty. I have pre-orders with both Target and Amazon to make sure I get a cheap one (or maybe 2)

I chuckled some at the Omega on Netflix comment. His 45 second cameo sure increased his stock! :lol: :lol:

I almost waited too long on Omega, I scored one of the few that did go on sale last year right around the beginning of December. He was sold out almost everywhere and I was thinking for about 2 weeks there I did miss him. He was popular.

Claire: brings up Wheeljack; Me: Man I wish Jon was on this one right now.

I maintain that Cyberverse is the best TF show we have gotten since Animated, and that it is loads better than Siege. That show was so damn good. Season 3 in particular was so fresh and new but had some great stuff from the past and told a great story. That is the TF show we have needed and wanted, it was great!!!

I agree with CP about Prime: he just wasn't very good, at all.

Magnus on the other hand was pretty good, his appearance in the show is the reason I am going to get the Siege Magnus. I sort of enjoyed him despite how limited he was used compared to what I was hoping he could have been used.

I had hopes for Galaxies 7 and 8 after 1-6, but they seem to be way too much like the ongoing. Which is a shame, I had hopes and wanted to have some fun with them. But also, a lot like LL 10-12, I hate when memory wipes are used, I do not like it when memories start getting tampered with.

G1 KOs.... I still feel salty I didn't know the headmaster warriors had KOs, I would not have bought those things otherwise. Still grumpy about that.

I also agree with CP on the IDW DJD issue where they are regular people sort of. I didn't really like that issue too much, felt like it lessened them some compared to the rest of the run.

Thanks guys and gals!

really, the only powermasters we haven't got are joyride and slapdash, so how about a pair of selects from the newest mirage mold?
