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.

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?

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)

alright so here's the skinny.
My daughter who is in kindergarden brought home an invitation to a kids birthday party that is in her class.
I called and RSVPd to it because she "really really really really REALLY!!!" wanted to go to the party. I asked the kids mother what kind of toys he like and she said that I didn't need to bring anything.
My budget is pretty tight however being the big geek who can't disappoint a kid on his birthday.
I asked my daughter what he likes. She told me he's always wearing TF, and spongebob shirts.
So me being the hardcore tf collector I am, I think I can hook the kid up.
Now here is where I need the help.
The kid is turning 6, and I've got plenty of in box stuff that is just eating space.
here is the question.
Do you think he'd like an
A 2007 movie allspark blue Deluxe new Cammero BumbleBee (target exclusive I picked up for a song on clearance) or B the reveal the shield redco of classic's BumbleBee?
C go to walmart and grab 1 autobot and 1 decpitcon legends class figure off the shelve and give them to him. (So if he has a brother will be able to 'fight' each other)

I'm leaning towards that reveal the shield BumbleBee, but I want an opinion other than my own here. The party is at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow
thanks guys

I voted Classics BB. it's a good solid mold that wont come apart on a kid, its durable, AND it is easy enough to Transform that they shouldn't have an issue doing it, which can be a problem with movie toys sometimes, and it has that "better than the movie" stuff classic TF look.

ZacWilliam, Really the first 2 are whats important but 3 isn't a bad thing either IMO.

I'm afraid I don't know the kids folks quite that well.
I'd offer up the 2007 movie redco of ultra red alert if I did

Given his age and the current complexity of TF toys, I'd say a few Animated Activators, if you can still score em.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

RTS Bumblebee. For the reasons already stated. I almost went with the 2 legends, but as I kid I think I would have wanted one regular sized guy over 2 small guys whi have bigger versions.

RtS Bumblebee is both easier to transform and less likely to be a mold he's already got.

I would recommend a PCC 5-pack. Target has them on sale for $10!

Not my finest work, but when life gives you lemons, they're yellow so just paint black stripes on them and call them Bumblebee. Kids will buy them.

lol I can't believe I forgot that part in the time it took me to write something... boy I must have been way to multitasking, Sorry Rat.

icon-fire.gif that aside -> lol yeah just put aside the suggested kidnapping icon-primal.gif

as a collector I'd suggest away from a Bumblebee of any sort, because I'm tired of seeing him everywhere... but as somebody who remembers being six, the one I can see everywhere is the one I want.

So i vote rts Bee...

I voter two legends because then right off the bat he's got two robots to fight each other. Get Prime and Megatron if you can.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
