    I ususally don't enjoy the cartoony/anime style Transformer toys but that Transformers Prime knock out looks really good. I like all the shows designs come to think of it.

    Well, the one exception is Optimus with a mouth. That never looks good.

    I could be wrong
    but that looks to be two deluxe-sized combaticons
    and an image of a toy bruticus
    if a WFC2 bruticus made of five fully independent deluxe-class combaticons is a thing then I don't even

    I definitely said to myself "there is no way that they are doing a deluxe-sized combaticon bruticus combiner" so I'm a little surprised ere

    As excited as I am about the Bruticus news, I can't help but worry that Hasbro is going to screw it up somehow, what with their latest snafus.

    Prime First Edition and the related RiD Prime molds being worse, the RtS figures only being available at discount outlets which turned out not to be that big of a deal but still, I guess the last DotM waves not being released yet but they're going to be in RiD anyway I think. Feels like there was something else but I can't think of it.

    Swindle and Brawl are looking great already, the idea that they also combine into Bruticus is blowing my mind

    at first I was really excited because I love the WFC designs and combiners make me giddy

    but then I realized it'll cost a ton to get all the figures and I don't have the space anyway and I got sad

    I guess I'll content myself with swindle, who looks rad as hell

    Amazon recently sold the set of all three movies on blu-ray for $30. I felt I would be losing money if I didn't pick them up. Long story short, I watched all three movies back to back.

    It's easy to point out all the stuff those movies do poorly, so I'll point out three things I think they did very well.

    1) The transformations are always cool. That may sound silly and obvious, but the way the bots transform is consistently entertaining, and for a movie that's pretty much about that, it's done well.

    2) Michael Bay is still a big proponent of practical effects. They generally blend very well with the CG effects and adds a visceral element to the action.

    3) The humans don't have prequelitus. They react to the bots believably, reacting to movements both subtle and overt. I completely buy that those CG characters are there in that world. No shots of Ewan McGregor staring into the middle distant while lightsabers are whirling around a centimeter from his nose.

    So that's my thoroughly entertaining movie story.

    I haven't watched any of Transformers Prime. Is it good? Available on DVD or Netflix?

    soooo

    there are supposed to be eight foc toys in the line, right?

    if five of them are the combaticons, that only leaves three, which I guess would mostly be autobots to balance things out

    unless they're only doing a few combaticons and then making bruticus a higher class figure instead of a combiner

    I don't know what I'm even talking about
