My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

its the rye of the kaiser its the thrill of the the fight

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:44 AM)

QUOTE(Original Post by Galenraff)
As you may remember (or can read about here if you don't), last year we raised $2340 in just under a week to donate to the Hasbro Children's Hospital om an amazing show of community action for a great cause! Well we're going for round 2 as we try and make this an annual event!

With a deadline of February 28, we're setting a goal of raising $5000 for the Hasbro Children's Hospital in order to become a Bronze Sponsor at their annual gala in early March. We're suggesting a $5 minimum donation per person, but of course any amount will be appreciated. And hopefully many of you will be able to either donate more or will be able to pull together some spare change a few times during the month.

Just like last year, I'll collect all the money and take point in donating to HCH. Or, if you don't really care about the fees and just want something quick and convenient, you can use this awesome widget put together by Daytonus!



Yes, this is a big goal, but this is also a community that has proven it can rise to great challenges for good causes, and after we shattered 3 consecutive goals last time out, I really just wasn't comfortable underestimating you again. Thank you all so much for what I'm sure will be an awesome effort!


QUOTE(Valentine message from Daytonus)


Celebrate Valentine's Day with Cannonball and the Allspark as we give the gift of love and compassion to the patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Regardless of whether you're single or spoken-for, the Allspark Staff has come up with some suggestions for making that day even more special!

* Getting flowers for that special someone? Consider buying a smaller bunch, or even a single rose (see some ways to make that not look cheap), and donating the difference to the charity drive.
* Instead of buying something, make something! It'll mean more to the person anyway.
* Single? Show that your heart is bursting with love regardless by giving to the drive!
* Looking? Impress that guy or gal with your generosity. Trust us, philanthropy is sexy.

Tell us what you are doing this Valentine's Day!

Should have my tax return in about a week. Normally I "celebrate" by throwing a little money at some toys I've been holding off on. This year I'm going to donate that money instead. icon-ironhide.gif

I've got some money in my Paypal account that I'm using for this, but I'm not sure how to get it reflected in our total. Can I send money to myself? icon-fire.gif

I'll figure that out.

Thanks for the great support we're already seeing everyone, mere hours after this going live!

Matched my most recent Transformer purchase (thus the weird number). I figure if I've got money to spend on toys, I've got money for charity.

Thank you!

As an aside, if you don't use the widget to donate, the graph won't immediately update, since Galen has to send me the numbers to enter manually. That's totally okay, I just want to be clear so people don't expect the tally to go up as soon as they Paypal their cash.

I'll have to get some money together. Trying to save money to buy my own place, so I might not be able to contribute as generously as I did last time, but we'll see. But given what I spend on toys, if I can't pony up the change, then that's a major moral failing on my part.

Oh, absolutely! Whatever you'd like to do to help raise money for this cause would be most gratefully accepted!
