Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

My dad survived it twice and we both have a strong hate towards it for taking someone from us. IMy sympathies to your family.

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

@Dracula Hey the crab is cool too but this DNA monster is giving them both a bad name.

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

I still have it. Not letting it go.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 February 2016 - 05:55 PM)

I had it at one point. Then I went to public school and it got misplaced.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Very true.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 12:51 PM)

Gamera is really neat! Gamera is filled with meat! We'll be eating Gamera!

Translated interview with Shogo Hasui.

TFW has posted a translation of the interview with Shogo Hasui up on TakaraTomy's website. Mr Hasui is known amongst his peers as "Mr. Starscream" because he has worked on every modern Starscream toy since Armada. It offers a lot of insight to both his views, TakaraTomy's views, and Japan's views in general.

That was interesting. You don't tend to think about things like box size playing a big part in the design role, but it makes sense. And makes you appreciate when those voyager boxes are kinda big for most of the line, because that means the few bigger ones can fit.

Nifty. Frenzy popping out of Barricade's chest was inspired by the toy.

Yeah, I remember this being a big thing with Wing Saber. He was too big a size for the US, so a lot of his paint detail was removed and he barely fit in the box. Any of the figures made for the Robot Masters line are another example, not being Basic/Scout or Deluxe size.

Some of it confused me. I guess the translation wasn't that great.
One of the things was about how Japanese and American fans thought about robot and alt modes... Japanese only judge the power of the robot mode based on the weapons?? Is that what they were saying? and they judge the alt mode based on it's real life abilities??

They're saying that Americans want their strong guys big, and their fast guys slender. While the Japanese want them to have similar body types, but that they have some distinction that shows their power. Think how Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm are obviously very similar but both have traits that point to their fire & wind powers. So in the case of someone strong say he has special gloves or gauntlets while someone fast has special boots, etc but they basically have the same physical size and build.

Ok, read the interview and I'm kind of in the middle of how I feel about body types for transformers. I like diverse sizes, and I like different armaments being the deciding factor on a Transformers abilities not just one single thing. Takara/Tomy make a Alternity Jazz with normal color version and a pearl white with blue stripe that comes with a drill weapon and a little gun, and you got me. That would be the most epic thing ever! icon-silverbolt.gif Jazz's sunglasses/visor, drill, cool confident attitude, sociable, skilled, it be the best transformer ever.
