@  OrionPax44 : (04 May 2016 - 11:38 AM)

My kids made a desert full of Graboids in Minecraft this past weekend. Including paintings of people in the mouths.

@  Robowang : (03 May 2016 - 08:09 PM)

@  BlackMax : (03 May 2016 - 04:21 PM)

WHat, is her name Errol or something?

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

She shoots fire from her eyes, and lightning from her arse!

@  MEDdMI : (03 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:27 AM)

You'll have to fight her for it. Be warned, she bites.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Then I bid the soul of your turtle.

@  DeltaSeeker : (03 May 2016 - 11:25 AM)

I want one! I can't afford it, but I want one.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:22 AM)

I don't have a firstborn. Your bid is invalid.

@  Smokey : (03 May 2016 - 11:20 AM)

I bid the soul of your firstborn.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 May 2016 - 11:13 AM)

I bid a coconut.

I bid $1.

@  Robowang : (03 May 2016 - 10:54 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 05:22 PM)

didn't know the reference before searching, but the Lizard Queen & fermentarium thing are from Simpsons. https://en.m.wikiped.../Selma's_Choice

@  Smokey : (01 May 2016 - 04:53 PM)

What the hug's a fermentarium?

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 04:34 PM)

'Dawn of the Predacus' not your cup of tea? Try TRANSFORMERS: UNITY for your BotCon 2016 comic.

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

...... *MED's hand appears in the fermentarium, getting closer to TMM, along with the Jaws theme*

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 May 2016 - 01:19 PM)

I wasn't going to go in naked, but it rotted off all my clothes. And then I was already in anyway, so......

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  MEDdMI : (01 May 2016 - 09:17 AM)

I bring you fresh crickets and worms, my Queen. Your basking lamp is ready for you afterwards.

@  Locoman : (01 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

I still want a cheetor figure that actually looks like the version we got on the tv show.

@  zephyrX9 : (01 May 2016 - 01:15 AM)

my salt in not getting victorion has turned into salt waiting for TR rewind to go up for preorder. ho-hum

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

!!!!OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS!!!!
Here is a current commission project I am working on. He is made from a 1/24 scale Lancia Stratus Turbo model and a Masterpiece Skywarp frame. When he is done he will be fully articulated, have l.e.d. lit eyes, ears, headlights, taillights, and gun. He will have transforming sounds, custom weaponry like his shockblast gun and working shoulder cannons that launch his missiles. I will be doing a custom airbrushed paint job before applying his decals and he will be coming with the MP-04 Prime base with augmented sound chip to say a specific "Wheeljack" phrase. This dude is going to be awesome! I will update more as I go. Any questions or comments please feel free to ask.

Nice!

And WHOA those are some bright ears.

I wonder if sound chips are hard to come by... might be fun to put in some recorded G1 phrases and have the amplitude of the output drive the ear flashes. Or have a contact pad on his back which makes the ears light up when touched, for play-value ventriloquism, Prime-battle-mask style.

Lol, thanks. I have a chip that reacts to vibration that is going to go into this. It will make the ears and eyes flicker similar to when he is talking. If you find one that has the capability you spoke of let me know. I would love to do that.

Wow...Just..wow!

I so wish I could comission you to do up one of these, but I'd imagine it is waybeyond my budgetary abilities...My poor butt is broke! See? There's a huge crack running right up the middle! *OW!* Put that shockblast cannon down, it was a JOKE! Granted a lame one...

In all seriousness though I am unable to afford one right now, and thus will have to admire it from a distance... until I either get a nice-paying job or get a sugar momma, lol!

That is truly a Masterpiece, though. I can't imagine how much effort goes into making such a sweet piece of artwork as that! If I could, I'd do like they do at a wrestling venue and get a crowd cheering with me, "THIS IS AWESOME! *Clap-clap! Clap-clap-clap!*"

In the 90's, Tiger Electronics had a line of little pocket electronics for kids called "Yak-Bak" that let you record voice samples and flange them and other effects. Doing a quick google search for "voice recorder toy" found several things like this for around $15 (including one made by Takara-Tomy icon-waspy.gif) The toys themselves are about 2 inches by 3, generally, but if you swap the speaker, remove the buttons you dont need and remove the casing, you would just have to find a home for the circuit board and you could store batteries and the speaker anywhere you could lead wires to. I am sure there are more techinical ways to go about this, recording digitally and embedding your sounds permanantly, but this would be a quick and cheap solution.

Note: I have been planning to G1-ify an Armada Unicron, to the point of adding lights and fiber optics, and I had hoped to add several of these boxes to him, so he can at least have 2 lines & play the Unicron theme in planet mode, but I am waiting for the reissue/remould to come out in case his head is notably more G1-y. Imagine, having the right hand gimmick make him say "I have summoned you here for a purpose." instead of a blinky light icon-fire.gif
