>Hun-Gurrr, one of the most hyped characters and the centerpiece for one of the most promising combiners, is just a shitty remold from a shitty CW mold that somehow manages to have less cohesive proportions than the 1987 toy

So, this is the "kino toyline" we were stoked for. Fuck, does the future look grim for Transformers.

>I love the cell phone and gameboy ones.
Strangely enough those two and Meantime were the only ones I skipped at the time, I wish I hadn't in retrospect just because I'm close to a complete set. I love Longview and Zoomout, they're such good little background nobodies that help flesh out their respective armies.
>>
If Moonracer shelfforms, that means you can make a bunch of different guys out of the same skelley like Highbrow/Scourge/Windblade?
>>
>>6526639
I have both, the Gameboy is actually sort of bland and lame (especially the Autobot version, the Decepticon one at the very least has some interesting colors to it) but basically all three versions of the flip cellphone are brilliant. I would genuinely recommend going after at least one of them if you're still into the line. Also,

A dumped thousands in ethereum. Now I can't buy any more bricks because I have to save monies.

I don't know what's worse the fact that I put 8 grand into cryptocurrencies. Or the fact that I think back upon spent money as money that could have been spent on lego.

Hot rod looks good, but he's fucking huge compared to normal deluxes.

Any /toy/soldier here from Florida?

I hope all of you Florida anons are safe from the hurricane.

Florida /toy/soldier here, Buncha trees came down but didn't hit our house. Thanks for the well wishes

Lost power pretty early in the night, so I decided to box everything up and store it to avoid any issues with the incoming humidity and heat.

Seems like everyone I've spoken with has gotten out of this fairly alright; I hope the same for others.

Daytona Beach area reporting. Lost power but otherwise no damage or flooding.
Looks like I'll be grilling until the power is back on.

Playmates is releasing a 16" classic Voltron with lights & sounds. Multiple weapons as well. What do you think /toy/?
54 posts and 13 images submitted.
>>
That's neat but after the Chogokin I think I'm tapped out on classic Voltron. I wonder what they'll do to put their own touch on it. so many companies have done their own take on Voltron. Actually, I still kinda want Mattel's, shitty as it may be.
>>
They really based it off the soul of chogokin mold but they probably cut out a lot of engineering and articulation in favor of the electronics and budgeting.

Best to actually wait for reviews of these guys to pop up and see the inevitable fuck ups in the paint apps that Playmates does.

While it certainly has it's flaws, I love the size of the Matty Voltron and the ability to put 3.75" pilots inside each lion. If only Matty had gone with a lights/sounds gimmick like these instead of that stupid auto-transformation nonsense.

If you had a million dollars to spend on whatever you want...

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR TOY EVER BUY?

nigga don't be dumb, if I get a million dollars I'm going to stretch it out as long as possible. That's like 17 years of $60k salary for literally no work
>>
>>6518241
A million is way more than I'd spend on a toy. I would buy a house, get some quality display cases for my high end collectibles, and buy materials to make a bunch of diorama displays to set my figures in.

Imagining rooms full of G.I. Joe battlefields and 1/150 scale cities filled with Kaiju and robots. Glorious.

Though if I had a million dollars, I'd probably shell out for a U.S.S. Flag.
>>
If I had a million dollars, I doubt I'd be in this hobby any longer. Toys are just a cheap emotional place holder to stave off inner reflection of my own failures and a means by which I can distance myself from bringing others into my life because of how "embarrassing" owning them happens to be.

Toys R Us might file bankruptcy in 2018

What are your thoughts? As a former employee, all I can say is it has been a long time coming.

Big Box retailers have been on the decline for about 16 years, why should Toys R Us be any different?
>>

I hope you fucked your female coworkers

So where the fuck are we supposed to go for Nintendo shit now? Target & Walmart have dramatically reduced their sections, Toys R Us is closing, Amazon never has shit online, ToyWiz overcharges tenfold, and we never get any release dates when something actually does come out
