    Saw all the GDO scouts the other day. Didn't get any of them, even the Laserbeak. Just wasn't appealing in person.

    Cliffjumper was there, too. Didn't get him, changed my mind, went back today, but he was gone. Damn my indecisiveness.

    All I saw at TRU was one Sandstorm. No other import guys. I was sad.

    Get Laserbeak, he's really nice and the paint job looks great in hand. Especially in vehicle mode.

    I got the Ultimate Battle set today. It's pretty nice for what it is. The decos are fine for the deluxes and the legends are just kind of there. If you have some version of the the molds you know what you're getting.

    Yeah I just enjoy how funky the colors are on the deluxes, and Jazz has some extra detailing that looks nicer compared to standard Jazz like the grey grill

    also because I was like hey, let's get some free shipping by spending lots more money, and also I'm a consumer whore

    and good gracious I want that FP-DX Armored Battalion - Set of 3 - Limited Edition Holiday colors UGH

    Free shipping is pretty much why I got that set.

    I'm gonna have to pass on that set since too many other things are coming out between now and the end of the year, but I am going to want to get the Warbugs when they come out.

    I just couldn't stand how he looked for some reason when I saw him in person. Something about him just kicked my G1 snobbishness into high gear. I thought I would like him since they painted him black and red and gray and named him Laserbeak, but once I had him in my hands, I just looked at his stupid feet and his silly face and ooooooh, I hate him so much now. I hate him like I hate TRU for raising the price of Masterpiece Thundercracker by $5 even though I'm never going to buy him.

    Plus, he's gone now, along with the Cliffjumper that...didn't that start breaking apart in your hands already? That doesn't stop me from loving Cliffjumper. Always throwing himself headlong at people's hands with no regard for his own safety. You rascal, Cliffjumper.

    Has there been any word of Masterpiece Sideswipe or Soundwave being licensed for a US release through Toys R Us or whatever?

    Sideswipe doesn't look like he has any pieces that a US release might leave out (like Rodimus Prime's trailer), though I would worry about them releasing all of Soundwave's casettes over here.

    No, but they probably will be. I'm tempted to wait like I did with every other MP, but...come on, it's Soundwave. With tapes. And I guess Sideswipe too.

    But I was able to use this coupon to get MP Prime at TRU today for $80. Had to get at least one other thing so I got a Brawl. Then I cancelled my preorder because I obviously didn't need it anymore. Yay.

    The movie will be all about Miko forming the Wreckers, and teaching them how to Wreck with the best of 'em.

    really want Verity to show up in a good wreckers movie with her armor
    2503978-verity_surprise__tf_last_stand_of_the_wreckers_2.jpg
    it has wheels that fold up against the back of her legs that can then fold down so she can kinda skate/go fast, and also retractable cannons on her arms

    here's a pic of her with her wheels, using a picture from the hardcover version of Wreckers, which fixed some bad inking/awkward looking Verity faces
    DSC00580.jpg
    Verity Carlo is someone who showed up in Furman's IDW run, sidelined by basically everyone but Roche and Roberts, used in Last Stand of the Wreckers

    she encountered the Autobots with Hunter O'Nion and Jimmy Pink, Hunter got killed in All Hail Megatron and Jimmy seemed to stay on Earth, while Verity went in space where she felt safer and less alone

    being alone is what she fears most

    she helped the Wreckers attempt to liberate Garrus-9, an Autobot prison taken by Overlord and turned into a nightmarish host of violence

    Found GDO Cliffjumper at the other local TRU today, didn't pass him up this time.

    Ever since I had a bad experience with the...things...attached to where 2007 movie Jazz's arms should be, try to stay away from the foldy plateformer style of figure, but this guy does it really, really well in robot mode. Everything lines up just so and the only really blatantly visible hollow areas are under his armpits. And seriously, who looks under a robot's armpits, anyway?

    They kind of overdid it just a smidge on the head sculpt, though.

    One major problem I have with the films

    I can name maybe 3-4 of the robots.

    I mean, there's optimus and Megatron

    Bumblebee, Starscream

    Ironhide, there's five

    Also Sentinel Prime.

    And then what seemed like some other guys running around.

    Granted, I stopped watching when I realized there was an entire hour left in the film, so there may have been even more that I didn't even see.

    I mean, given that they were still throwing in more characters shortly before I stopped, I have no doubt that there was more to come.

    Checking the wiki, there's like 16? That is fucking ridiculous.

    It's far better to have fewer characters and give them all more personal screen time. Having so much shit going on back and forth really waters down everything and gets really confusing.

    None of them were even characters

    They were props

    The focus was basically entirely in the humans and most of the autobots only go enough dialogue and characterization to think "oh he's kinda cool" but not enough to care if they died in most cases


    There could've been a cast of sixteen dudes or more if the damn humans were excised
