"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)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:43 AM)

I didn't think I was interested but OH DEAR GOD WONDER TWINS yesssssssss

@  Arthur Burlo : (22 July 2016 - 06:11 PM)

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:19 AM)

I know he didn't create the IDW universe but he's the writer of one of its titles, that's why I said "his universe".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM)

Also it's not exactly "his (Roberts') universe" since Barber exists, even if you ignore all the earlier IDW stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:13 AM)

And it's specifically the intent rather than something that's actually in the story.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:11 AM)

I didn't listen to the podcast but the transcript has a bunch of laughing and he does specify "until someone can contradict me".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:52 AM)

https://scans-daily....rg/5212318.html http://www.transmiss...ons-episode-94/

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:51 AM)

james roberts says it did.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:43 AM)

Perceptor said that the briefcase made alternate universes possible or something but it's not like Perceptor actually knows how all this works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:42 AM)

It... didn't?

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:37 AM)

So, wait does Elegant Chaos story made the IDW universe the main TF continuity? What with it being the base universe. This sucks, there shouldn't be a main universe wtf, James Roberts is just trying to make his universe the most important one. If there has to be a main universe (which I don't think there should) it has to be the G1 cartoon.

Lots of the Allspark staff are going to be there this year, and while we've been too busy to plan a "meetup" per se, we will (if all goes well) have a table at Botcon where I imagine we'll be spending lots of time. You might run into:

This. The staff has been very busy getting ready for Botcon, but we have bounced the idea around. Who knows, maybe once we all get there on Thursday we will have time to hash something out...

T-shirts are not in the current plans. But don't worry, we DO keep talking about those because many of us on staff want new ones that haven't been laundered a thousand times too. We haven't forgotten about t-shirts.

But I think you guys are REALLY going to like some of the stuff that we will have. We're very close to announcing things. Maybe we're ready? I don't know if we're ready. I'll just tease with that for now until we're sure we're ready.

And that's only half of the staff who are there. Some though may be getting in late or in the case of Bainreese have their family with them.

Hello I havent been around the Forums much the past few years, my oldest boy kind of took over the Collection. But we are going sunday for our first Botcon and for his 13th birthday. We are stoked. I only remember some of the people here. Kal of course and some guy that always had Fang in his name. If you see a large furry guy wearing a Blue Baseball cap with RH (rockhounds) and a kid with a Blue transformers comic book shirt Say High. Im not as scary as I look icon-hotrod.gif

We had fun, but I don't know if anyone brought a camera. I got to meet a few people, we ate and had some drinks, it took way too long to get our bills paid, and then we went to hang out more at the hotel. I know it may not seem like much, but the guys were really busy getting things done for the site this year. Gatherings are fun, but I think this year it was more important to take care of things for the site and they did an amazing job.

edit: We did get a pic of a lot of Allsparkers after the movie preview. Maybe I will be able to post it tomorrow.
