A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 May 2016 - 07:12 PM)

http://swanh.net/ This is really impressive.

I keep having to say this to folks: fandoms are voluntary. Enjoy in any ratio or methodology that you choose.

@  Dracula : (29 May 2016 - 05:38 PM)

Ride the wave, dude. Put the toys away for a while...take 'em back out again later and you mind find your interest rekindled

@  Locoman : (29 May 2016 - 04:14 PM)

it happens to everyone. Sometimes interests are cyclical.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 04:13 PM)

Well, for starters, it might be time to think of a new username...

@  tffan01 : (29 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I'm losing interest in TF. Help.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (29 May 2016 - 03:00 PM)

It means you're not very well-rounded.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 02:46 PM)

What happens if you don't like pi?

@  Bass X0 : (29 May 2016 - 01:29 PM)

He who doesn't like pie are destined to become the contents of pie.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 May 2016 - 12:09 PM)

No you don't. You think you do, but you really don't.

@  Echowarrior : (29 May 2016 - 10:37 AM)

I like pie.

There is no war in Ba Sing Se.

We have always been at war with East Asia.

@  unluckiness : (29 May 2016 - 04:04 AM)

His big scene in the big Astrotrain battle for leadership was also great. Too bad Starscream suckerpunched him after he beat everybody else up

@  Pennpenn : (29 May 2016 - 01:00 AM)

Of course he has. I mean, remember when Trailbreaker had to pretend to be him in Masquerade?

@  zephyrX9 : (29 May 2016 - 12:47 AM)

offroad has always been there

@  Plokatron : (28 May 2016 - 11:18 PM)

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

@  tffan01 : (28 May 2016 - 02:33 PM)

@beetleman, ok.

As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 04:48 PM)

And depending on where you live, even American stores

@  wonko the sane? : (27 May 2016 - 02:59 PM)

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2016 - 02:13 PM)

This day last year I walked five miles to Asda to collect all the Defensor components. I was a dumb kid.

Nothing better than a big ol' black one right in my mouth. Gotta love licorice.

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

@  Dracula : (26 May 2016 - 03:36 PM)

YEAH GOT MY ORDER NOTICE TOO

@  Dracula : (26 May 2016 - 02:38 PM)

Sweet. Been hyped for this toy since I heard about it last year...mine is coming from HLJ

Wildfires in the Great Dismal Swamp are continuing to spread.

The story is that a thunderstorm that rolled through on Aug. 4th sparked off a wildfire in the Dismal Swamp. The fires quickly moved to the underground peat layers where they are out of reach for fire crews. Despite the best efforts the fires are still spreading and with no rain in the forecast there is no telling how long this will go on.

This isn't the first swamp fire that I have seen but it is one of the worst. The smoke today was getting so thick a times that it was hard to see even moderate distances. Even now as I am sitting inside my house all I can smell is smoke and I am almost 50 miles from the fires. So far, I haven't seen any reports of human casualties and the fire is still within the wildlife refuge so no homes are being threatened. There is a lot of concern for the welfare of the animals within the refuge.

This is a pic I snapped while I was at work earlier today. It doesn't really do it justice but the haziness you can see is due to all the smoke.


and this was at a time when it looked like it was getting better.

It would be really nice to be able to breathe normally again. icon-screamer.gif

We just got pounded with a very heavy downpour this afternoon here in Northern VA, but I guess none of that moisture is going to make it all the way down to Southern VA.

I wish we would get some of that rain. Last I heard they were saying that we would need at least six inches to smother all the hot spots.

Some of the latest news. is showing that residents as far as Baltimore are experiencing heavy smoke clouds.

The fire itself is now up to 6000 acres and is being reported as the largest fire ever to burn in the Great Dismal Swamp refuge.

The last few days the air around here has been pretty clear. The wind has shifted and appears to be sending the smoke to the north.

Baltimore? Really?

It's raining up here in Fairfax county today, so I couldn't see smoke even if it were in the sky. The past few days have been clear blue skies, though.

Well we had a couple of clear days but after the some rainstorms today the smoke came back worse than ever.



This looked just like a foggy night except we don't have the conditions for fog. This is really becoming a serious public health problem and I don't know what can really be done about it.
