"Too many toys" for the shelf, you see.

@  Pennpenn : (22 October 2016 - 08:34 AM)

Bah! That isn't too many toys, that's not enough shelf space!

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 07:42 AM)

You know, too many toys. That thing where you can't figure out how to cram the newest one onto the shelf.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 02:18 AM)

When you can't see the floor anymore.

@  Telly : (22 October 2016 - 12:04 AM)

"too many toys". what does that even mean? such a strange phrase

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2016 - 03:46 PM)

He's bought too many toys, now he's gotta play with them all! All aboard the Astrotrain! *choo choo*

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2016 - 01:13 PM)

Oi, you lot! Treat!

bird is the word?

@  Locoman : (20 October 2016 - 09:50 PM)

That's probably the bird, isn't it? That laid the eggs! Livid!

As an outsider, whether Trump wins or loses, the results are bound to be hilarious. Not so much for Americans but you just know the most ridiculous things he will do are yet to come.

Anyone else having problems watching hulu tonight? The app isn't working on both my wii u and ps4.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 PM)

I have a tablet that runs on Wi-Fi only, with all the hotspots or sharing data off my cell, it's hardly ever an issue. Just need to be careful where you connect and what you do on said connection.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:23 PM)

I've considered it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 08:22 PM)

Sounds like you might want to look into tablets with data plans.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:20 PM)

It's not even the data plan that would be the problem for me. I'd probably use the hug out of a data plan. It's the VOICE plan I can't justify. 8^)

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:19 PM)

I have an iPod Touch and a "dumb" flip-phone on a pre-pay plan. I put $100 on it once a year, and never use it all. I'd love to get an actual smartphone, but just can't justify the expense.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 06:37 PM)

The Moto phones are a good low-price option. I bought my mom a Moto E (her first cellphone, smart or dumb) and she's been really happy with it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 06:18 PM)

I've been looking at the Moto G family, personally. Seems like a good way to get a cheap one.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 05:59 PM)

For a long time I thought a tablet was good enough for me, and was pretty firmly in the anti-smartphone crowd. But after getting my first one (a Nexus 5), I became a convert pretty fast

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

Probably going to give in on that soon, though

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

I've got a cheap tablet and an old dumb-phone, been too stubborn to pay for a data plan

@  D Immortalis : (18 October 2016 - 03:47 PM)

i dont even own a cell. =]

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 03:14 PM)

My cell is about 5 years old. It barely stays alive without any apps running.

@  Gizmoboy : (18 October 2016 - 02:45 PM)

I still play every day. As for what's the point, that's a good question. I still enjoy taking gyms and leveling up my Pokemon though. I'm at 134 on my Pokedex though so I've almost got them all. :)

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 02:41 PM)

My phone hates PoGo, but I still boot it up sometimes, and my wife and several friends are still playing regularly

@  The Doctor Who : (18 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

I uninstalled it because it kept giving me "app has stopped working" errors even while it wasn't running. It wasn't something I was playing much anymore anyway.

@  Locoman : (18 October 2016 - 02:23 PM)

You'd think that all they need to do to re-invigorate the app would be to start putting in Pokemon from the second generation.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 02:21 PM)

I poke at it once in a while. Kinda forget about it a lot.

@  Benbot : (18 October 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Is anyone still playing Pokemon Go? I am, but I don't know why. What's the point of this?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 01:14 PM)

The only genderless Pokemon that can learn Attract are Cryogonal and Mew. And Mew can learn every TM anyway.

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 12:57 PM)

Can't any Pokemon learn Attract? It would just fail no matter what.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 12:43 PM)

Cryogonal can learn Attract. It's genderless. What.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 09:41 AM)

between 229 - 383 at level 100 depending on IVs, nature and EVs

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 09:39 AM)

and what IS the airspeed velocity of an unladen Swellow???

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Yamask is people

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 09:25 AM)

Yes, even male ones.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 AM)

what about Gogoat? they can also learn "Milk Drink"...

Okay, so I had this vision/dram/whatever the other day, and I'd like to try my hand at some character model design sheets for the Female Predacons. Work out their transformations, their combinations, and their scale. Maybe possibly see if there's a 3rd party company out there willing to shop around for them. Or see what kinda effort it would take to produce them locally.

Here's my question. I have an idea how they should go, but I can't draw Hangman to save my life, and I have precious little real world experience in this. So I was wondering if anyone has any tips for me. I am not asking for someone to DO it for me, but just for some legitimate suggestions. With the design process. Now the shopping 3rd parties. Although that would be great too. Also if these somehow got made, would y'all be interested?

You know what? Any comments or suggestions AT ALL would be appreciated.

I don't remember them so I wouldn't know.

But if nothing else its a cool project. I can only speak for myself here. But I'd first figure out how they would go. Then figure out what level of articulation every mode needs and draw out how this could realisticly happen in the confines of physics.

Good inspiration are things like the Soul Of Chogokin plan drawings. If you don't want to worry about engineering as much as plausability its easier ofcourse.

Also figure out ways to make each character unique, not only in bios but in appearance. Again; I don't remember these. But if they are all just "red lipstick smoldering with generic rage" I'd retool them a bit. A toy is a piece you play and fiddle with. Even more so a robot toy who have no excuse not to have features.

Or you just make them as outrageously hot as possible.

Or go the Busou Shinki route and combine both tiny robot woman and action figure appeals.

What I'm saying is that its a cool idea and you should go for it. Find a name other than "Female Predacons" as well. Faunacons, Furycons, Wild Attack Team... Something exciting.

Well, first up, you need designs drawn up. A freelance artist can do this. Might need to get one that specializes in Tf fanart or something.

Then, you can hire a 3D modeler to render them.

After the 3D model is done, find a rapidprototyper, and get a 3D print or two of it. Clean it up good, and make some Resin Prototype casts of it.

THEN you can shop it around. Its really difficult to shop around JUST a drawing or description.

Do keep in mind Wermole's advice, the characters need to stand out and need to be unique within their own universe as well as without.
Now accepting commissions, if interested send a pm.
