@  Paladin : (14 February 2016 - 09:11 AM)

Valentine's Day. Bummer.

@  Smokey : (14 February 2016 - 04:42 AM)

Oh, and happy birthday Razorsaw.

@  Smokey : (14 February 2016 - 04:39 AM)

I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!

@  Smokey : (14 February 2016 - 04:33 AM)

*punches through a silk screen* SILENCE!!!

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 02:53 AM)

@Smokey Nimcombots! You useless hunk of junk wheres my cheese omelet?!!

@  Smokey : (14 February 2016 - 02:32 AM)

Snoo PINGAS usual, I see?

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:52 AM)

Going to try and dress up as AoSTH Robotnik. Only two things I see being had for the costume. The Moustache and the classic yellow target belt thing. May need some help. :drunk

@  Plokatron : (14 February 2016 - 01:40 AM)

Hmmm bit of cool news for me. I'm going to my first Comic Con!! No not the Comicon a comic con in cape girardeau. First Con thats been close enough for me to go to!! Blast it will be.

@  unluckiness : (14 February 2016 - 01:31 AM)

Chromedome aside, it's not like they're doing anything in MTMTE.

@  Whirl Maximus : (14 February 2016 - 01:23 AM)

It just hit me, MTMTE might lose Brainstorm, Chromedome, Fort Max, Rewind, Ravage and Blaster to RiD.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 11:45 PM)

Decepticons, Transform and Rise Up!

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:04 PM)

I'm actually rather fond of the phrase "You are being decieved," to be honest.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 08:03 PM)

"You are being decieved."

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:57 PM)

"Hope is not real"- Scourge, from IDW comic Autobots Wage Their Battle

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:50 PM)

We can only hope.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:46 PM)

Also the Season 2 Trailer makes me hopeful for Clampdown getting more toys since he seems to be one of the blessed escapees

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

I had been hoping we'd get a good Windblade toy, and RID delivered this time.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 07:20 PM)

Yeah, RID Windblade is basically a gigantic slap in the face to the people who think RID could NEVER be anywhere near as good as "collector's" lines like Generations.

@  Boomhauer : (13 February 2016 - 07:13 PM)

Bisk is fun, but I'm more excited about Strongarm's fishgun, Scorponok with a different transformation for once and a Windblade that can stand up

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:43 PM)

One-steps are pretty much the most fun thing ever. It's kind of addicting to just shift from one mode to another over and over again.

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 06:41 PM)

That makes him even better than a Warrior.

@  Cabooceratops : (13 February 2016 - 06:39 PM)

Bisk is a 1-Step

@  Smokey : (13 February 2016 - 04:38 PM)

I hope Bisk is either a Legends or he's less messed up than he looks.

@  Plokatron : (13 February 2016 - 01:53 PM)

@Rycochet He is indeed voiced by Wierd Al. He is also a awesome brother. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Polkatron dares to be stupid and is voiced by A. Yankovic.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 AM)

He got all the musical talent in the family.

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:59 AM)

Polkatron? is he Plokatron's spotty brother?

@  BillBarclay : (13 February 2016 - 05:58 AM)

Polkatron? is he Ploj

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 11:21 PM)

@Cabooceratops So was what I said. :D

@  Cabooceratops : (12 February 2016 - 09:10 PM)

It's called a joke, Polkatron, you may have heard of the concept?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 08:06 PM)

@Nutjob R/T @TheMightyMollusk Yesh are you Baybots thinking so litteral?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 02:41 PM)

Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

Ralph Swagler, owner of Locals Barbecue in the same strip mall as the IHOP, said he saw a man wearing a red shirt and black shorts pull up outside the IHOP in a blue minivan.

Swagler said the man had a rifle. He shot and killed a man on a motorcycle, then walked inside the IHOP and started shooting.

Swagler said the man spent several minutes there, then walked back outside into the parking lot and began firing into the Locals Barbecue and an H&R Block in the strip mall.

?This happens in third-world countries, not here,? Swagler said.


My thoughts and well-wishes to everyone involved. What possesses a man to shoot up an IHOP?

My sympathies as well, but what's up with the third-world reference? Public shootings in America are (tragically) hardly new.

Not sure, I'm betting it's at least partially shock from having never experienced anything like that before.

I have to say... my experience is, this happens in the USA most often. In the third world, when people shoot others, it's due to a war, hatred of another country/minority or simply to get food/valuables. In the USA, not a month goes by without me hearing about a story of another nutcase who shot people without any reason, or a kid in school going berserk. icon-screamer.gif

It was a really bloody weekend all over. Six shot here in Portland (no major injuries, at least), and 48 at least shot in NYC, with 10 dead.

Stay safe everyone.

Ya I saw the six shot the other day in the Oregonian. Any more it doesn't spark as big a flame in the news as it would of a decade ago it seems.

Over at the Huffington Post, people are arguing either for more gun control or more people being allowed to carry guns because of events like this.


I commented that perhaps what we need instead of either of those is more mental health care for our citizens.

Because clearly the answer to everything is too much/not enough guns. Trying to treat the mentally ill is boring and icky.
