Selling some stuff, check the BST thread for my topic.

@  MEDdMI : (14 February 2016 - 10:02 AM)

-30 degree windchill over here and my car won't start. Hope everyone else is staying warm!

Snoo PINGAS usual, I see?

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:52 AM)

Going to try and dress up as AoSTH Robotnik. Only two things I see being had for the costume. The Moustache and the classic yellow target belt thing. May need some help. :drunk

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:40 AM)

Hmmm bit of cool news for me. I'm going to my first Comic Con!! No not the Comicon a comic con in cape girardeau. First Con thats been close enough for me to go to!! Blast it will be.

@  unluckiness : (14 February 2016 - 01:31 AM)

Chromedome aside, it's not like they're doing anything in MTMTE.

@  Whirl Maximus : (14 February 2016 - 01:23 AM)

It just hit me, MTMTE might lose Brainstorm, Chromedome, Fort Max, Rewind, Ravage and Blaster to RiD.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 11:45 PM)

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:04 PM)

I'm actually rather fond of the phrase "You are being decieved," to be honest.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:03 PM)

"You are being decieved."

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:57 PM)

"Hope is not real"- Scourge, from IDW comic Autobots Wage Their Battle

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:50 PM)

We can only hope.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

Hey, just started getting salvage for the first time.... where and how do I unload all this crap?


The Auction House (Black Market Red side, Wol-somethingorother-worth Trading Center Blue).


So here's some shots of the fellas I've been running with lately (Anybody's guess how long this batch of Alts will last):

There's Thoughtforce of course, but beyond him:

First up, there's my Praetorian Demon Digger:



And his Primal "Counterpart", Liche:


(I didn't do a good job in these photos showing off the fact Liche also has a skull buried in its chest just like Demon Digger).

My new Mister Atrocity (In no way associated with Praetoria or Mister Astonishing):


And finally, I brought my Robo/Traps MM Broadband over from Pinnacle to Virtue, and in the process had to rename him. So I completely overhauled him and he's now State Machine:

His bots are named Red, White, Blue, Liberty, Justice, and Freedom

Well, just got to actually use some of that salvage. Darque's Darkness snipe just got accuracy and damage boosts that should keep me good until lvl 20.

Now I just need to find something that should give some good affordable side-weapons to the other guys. The mech-wing costume part sounds good for O, and thoes poison daggers are right up Mournings alley.

keep in mind: if you stop being a VIP you'll lose access to your inventions. Inventions slotted in powers will stop working and you won't have any effect from them. Re-upping reactivates them, but if you intend only to stay VIP for a month you might want to think twice before making too many of those.

If you got enough leftover points, you can get an invention license when you go back to free, those allow you to craft/use inventions just as if you were VIP but only for 30 days.

Typical.... this would extend over to costume parts too I assume. Well, at this rate he should be lvl 20 by then.

Ehh, I'll probly have to go and sell most of that salvage crap before time runs out.

No, if you craft a costume part, you keep it on that toon even if you lose IO access. You just can't make more. I looked into that on Scav's behalf last week.

Man I hate Nemesis's clanks. Trying to hunt-down Clockworks in Steel Canyon... and naturally there where no baddies to be seen. Just stand still long enough and guess what starts swarming me? UGH!

Ranting aside.... Mourning just leveled up, and I chose 'shadow maul' as his new power... And naturally once I get to test it, it shares a striking resemblence to the Sands of Mu. So now, the question is... do I really want to have two of the same flurry power, even if it is this awesome, in favor of fire or Grenade arrows?

Speaking as a former Dark Melee Scrapper: Yes. Yes you do.

Shadow Maul (Which as you noticed, is exactly like Sands of Mu) can be enhanced - unlike Sands of Mu.

This is true.... Plus, you can repeatedly pummel everybody in your path... like I did with that army of clockworks I passed on my way back to the mission.

Bingo. Shadow Maul is just a great move in general - Cone Damage plus -Accuracy to anyone it hits. Would wouldn't want two of it?

Generally, when a zone event triggers (be it Nemesis, Zombies, Banners or Rikti), the normal wandering mobs run for cover. Does make hunt missions annoying, yeah.

This week they'll be testing out "Freebie Fridays," anyone who logs in on Friday (GMT, so starting Thursday night in America) gets a free thing (one per account, so it'll probably show up in Account Items). They're not saying what the free thing is, but unless part of the testing is 'see if we can avoid giving people stuff they aleady bought,' I'd guess it'll be a consumable (team inspiration, deslotter, etc) rather than a durable item like a costume piece.

Explosive arrow is fun, but if you're still exclusively soloing you're probably better off focusing on single target and cone most of the time, so take flaming arrow.

Agreed. And if you have Trick Arrow, the flame arrow can ignite your own oil slicks whereas the Explosive Arrow doesn't.
