    Lots of stuff, try and guess what one of them is, I'll give you a hint it starts with an M and involves something that starts with a V.

  1. Its to get rid of the windshield wipers and maybe get that angle between the windows that exists only in bot mode.
  2. Looks like the robot chest is a set of faux windows. Not really a fan of the use of faux parts, even if it gives us cartoon accuracy. Still as a display piece it looks pretty good in bot mode at least.
  3. I like what I see so far. Humor doesn't seem so bad to me. Like JBO said most of the stuff that made me cringe in the previous movies was the toilet and sex humor. Honestly this has the vibe of a more family friendly movie to me, like say the Iron Giant, which is what I think Travis Knight is on record saying that is what he is going for. Also hopefully they will realize that the stars of the transformer movies are supposed to be well the transformers, not hot women, not the army, not annoying boys like Shia Lebouf.
  4. I don't know, that they were beyond bad?
  5. I have strangely mixed feelings. I recognize the Bayverse movies to be truly dreadful movies, but over the years they have become kinda guilty pleasures for me. I'll be happy just as long as they get a competent director for the reboot.
  6. Oh wow. The Bayverse is dead!!! http://news.tfw2005.com/2018/02/16/transformers-cinematic-universe-current-movie-series-rebooted-358641 I don't know how to feel. I recognize they were all horrid movies, but over the years they have become kinda guilty pleasures for me. And unlike some I do like the movieverse designs.
  7. I really wanna grab a GX-71 but for the current asking price that some people want on ebay ouch!!! I saw one selling for around 663, as opposed to a thousand +. My question for all those knowledgeable does anyone know if the GX-71 has been knocked off. I just wanna make sure if I pounce I'm getting a legit Bandai product and not some POS that will crumble in my hands when I take it out of the box.
  8. Sadly I didn't think to call the support line. I was just so disgusted with the fact that less than ten minutes after opening mine up it broke. I'm perfectly willing to accept I got a dud. Only one of the two legs broke. As I said I am willing to give these guys a 2nd shot since no one else is reporting theirs breaking.
  9. I'll do my best. This was actually a few months ago. I am talking about the pins that connect the upper part of hips and lower parts of the hips. The joint at the hip that allows the legs to lower in place for Gerwalk mode. I went to lower the leg down into its Gerwalk configuration. This joint if I remember correctly is held together with a metal pin running through it, and it was the outer hinge part that snapped off on both sides of where the ends of the metal pin held them in place, supposedly allowing it to swing down. Does that make sense? Since no one else is ranting about the frailty of this part I suspect I might have just gotten a defective one. Still its an area to watch out for as the plastic struck me as pretty thin in this area of the figure. Maybe I'll give this figure another shot since no one else seems to have had this problem.
  10. I bought mine from BigBadToyStore so it better not have been a bootleg. I gotta admit I was so pissed at the toy, and this is a first for me, I actually threw it out.
  11. I got the Roy Fokker SD and the legs snapped apart at the pins the moment I tried to move them when transforming it into Gerwalk mode. No one else has had this problem?

    Didn't notice the different markings til you pointed them out. Guess I may still pick of the plain vanilla battle pod when the time comes.

    Hey do the 2 regults with the missile pods also come with option parts to make them up as standard regults as well? If that's the case I figure I'll just pick up the missile pod set and just ignore the basic regult Bandai made.
  14. You can count me among those that really didn't notice the facial CGI. I mean when Tarkins walked on I knew it was either CGI or a fantastic makeup job, but I wasn't in anyway distracted by it.
  15. I was able to slip in and get the Boba Fett pre-ordered at HLJ before it sold out, but I missed out on slave 1. Ended up having to pre-order it BBTS along with the episode 7 x-wing. I E-mailed BBTS because I was wondering how this impacted the current kits they have up for pre-order and this is the response I got Either BBTS is totally oblivious to the situation, Knows something we don't or their supplier is someone who is not able to be bullied by Disney or Bandai. Hope it's the latter 2.
