Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

@  Rycochet : (29 August 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Anyone else getting Muslim dating sites turning up in the ads? I mean, talk about mistargetted adverising...

I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  BlackMax : (26 August 2016 - 04:55 PM)

No no no, ~finger~prints!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:39 PM)

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 03:27 PM)

Your spouse's brother is a PRIEST. If you were supposed to get hit by lightning, it would've happened by now.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 11:31 AM)

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

Cake? My only weakness! *bursts into flame*

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 05:15 AM)

Oppa Homeless Style?

@  LV! : (25 August 2016 - 01:01 PM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

@  Benbot : (25 August 2016 - 07:34 AM)

@ TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 03:20 AM) Why do you hate yourself? -- I don't, really. Whether good or ill, I'd like to know how RG1 goes so, if nothing else, I can actually talk about it from a place of experience.

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:57 PM)

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

    DEAL WITH IT

I was in Poundland the other day (basically a One Dollar Store for you Yanks) when a knockoff of a Cybertron Legends Thundercracker caught my eye. Crafted from green plastic and with minimal yellow and grey paint apps, it looked like a very cheap version of my fancharacter Fulcrum. What the hell, I thought, grabbing it off the rack. It's only one quid.

So I've started painting it.

Here he is after the first couple of coats of Tamya spray (Olive Drab 2). While he's already green, this base coat will help any further paint apps stick. At this stage you can still see bits of his original yellow paint apps showing through. Don't worry, I dealt to those.



...and here's the jet mode after another couple of coats of spray and some detailing work. I'm using all Citadel paints. The green has been given a Badab Black ink wash to bring out the lines. The grey is Codex Grey, another black ink wash, then the panels were lined with Fotress Grey and corrected with a bit more Codex. The yellow is an Iyaden Darksun basecoat, and the nosecone is straight Chaos black.



Next step is to give the green the same treatment as the grey, lining it with Camo green then corrected with Catachan Green. The engines will be picked out in Boltgun Metal, drybrushed with Mithril Silver, given a black ink wash, then some Tin Bitz applied to represent scorching. Finally he cockpit will be painted with a reflective yellow scheme.

Then it's on to the robot mode!

You know. That KO looks better than the original. I got mine in a cheap sale (like half, half off lying in a pile of Cyb Unicrons) and it whasn't even worth the 5$ it cost. It doesn't peg together at all.

Great vehicle mode though.

Either way, this looks promising. How are you doing with the hammer, or am I confusing fancharacters here?

You're not confused, but the trouble is that he doesn't have any fist holes! And while I could drill some, the plastic would probably shatter. So I'm afraid he'll have to do without.

You could do the Skids version of constructing something that clips ON the fist rather than slides into it. Ofcourse that may end up to be a lot of work.

I'd try drilling it out with a pin-vise for starters. You could probably do that carefully enough to justify the attempt, or possibly get fists from another TF or KO to use instead.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.
