  1. The Nintendo Switch

    Yeah at least two new characters shown, newer logo, plus the creator is working on it. Since the last smash released in 2014 then some DLC it wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve secretly been working on it for some time.
  2. The Transformers Thread Next

    I know the way the line is going is controversial among us collectors (Though I for one like the cartoon accurate look as that’s how I grew up with Transformers), looks like an animation accurate MP Prime is rumored to be in the mix. http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/02/22/rumor-masterpiece-optimus-prime-3-0-incoming-359883
  3. Ok ok ok. Hold up. The two people on this site with the name Kaneda can’t both be black. I’m sorry but we must duel sir, to surrender or death. Have at thee
  4. Legos, anyone?

    Yeah when I got mine I asked my store on Monday and they were out. Then I got my tax returns and asked Wednesday and they had a few. I quickly ran to Mall of America and got it. I do feel being tax season it may be hard to get as people receive their returns.
  5. Legos, anyone?

    I’ve thought about combining them both. I’ve also found a way the build a stand for them so I can have one as a coffee table as I’ve always wanted and the other looking like it’s flying on a shelf.
  6. I thought the film was beautiful. Not only an overall solid outing but one that touches upon so many real world aspects like creating our monsters, or how we view and interact with a world outside of our own. Also as a person of color just the representation of an entire people who were all exceptional was truly heart warming. I know it’s hard to convey how much that last statement means to me. Yes I’ve had great representation before in Blade, Green Lantern and other heroes but it was always just one or two people. Marvel did very well with this one. The soundtrack is odd as there are some great tracks but for such an uplifting film to go release an explicit album that doesn’t quite fit the film is wrong. All the Stars is a great track though.
  7. Legos, anyone?

    Welp. Finally got the new UCS Falcon. Now to have a place big enough to display it and the original one from ten years ago
  8. The Transformers Thread Next

    Paint scheme is cartoon accurate versus the reworld look in the original
  9. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I’ll say this. Giga looks cool but I’m perfectly happy with all my FT Dino’s including Cesium. However I do still need Grinder and my current quest in life is to get one soon.
  10. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    I just got mine and yeah. He’s awesome just have to get used to the parts moving around other parts. My Apache is sitting in the office of my apartment building so I won’t have him till tomorrow. As far as outward arm movement many bots from different companies lack that articulation including the Dinobots so I’m ok with it
  11. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Same here. Glad it’s being rereleased. I need them to rerelease the insecticons and Grinder then I’m happy
  12. The Transformers Thread Next

    Finally got MP Megs from TFSource. They had no plugs which was great. I’ll say this. I know the concerns about the figure but.....he’s without a doubt my favorite transformer toy ever. The poseability, the accessories, the heft, complex transformation, and POSEABILITY. I easily recommend him, I had Apollyon but this blows it away. Now (and this is a controversial topic) I want a new Prime with similar possibility to complete it. Though I’m happy with my MP-10 as well.
  13. The Third Party Transformers Thread

    Good to hear about the lack of an orange plug. Sucks to hear about the packaging. I’m currently playing signature tag with UPS for my megs. I just got got the pre-order deal for the Maketoys headmasters and really really contemplating Meteor. But as Skullface said, 600 dollars. At least 600 dollars are invested in the the Takara masterpieces so going for Meteor and then all of those eventual seekers is asking a lot from collectors. But we shall see
