That is entirely likely. One major problem in restaurants with varied menus is deciding how many of each item to have at a given time. Fewer items simplifies the analysts.

It's my belief that Five Guys's success at what they do is a direct result of their specialization.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 August 2016 - 05:28 PM)

Five Guys is basically a fricking death trap for me, what with the peantus being everywhere.

@  Bass X0 : (31 August 2016 - 05:07 PM)

Wouldn't it be awesome if Five Guys served boneless wings? The best burger for your money AND delicious hot wings. They'd be unstoppable.

i'm getting "Our Amazon Picks" on the sidebar; haven't seen that before...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 August 2016 - 09:41 AM)

The top banner seems to disappear and reappear for me.

@  Arazyr : (31 August 2016 - 09:24 AM)

Whenever I want to go to BBTS or TFS sites I make sure to use the banner ads here. 8^)

@  Dracula : (31 August 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Speaking of ads, I have adblock turned off for allspark and I've noticed the top banner ad on the forums tends to be broken. Today I don't see it at all. Might just be me though.

@  Kalidor : (31 August 2016 - 01:28 AM)

Clicking on ads and visiting sponsor links helps keep the lights on, if you want a cheap and easy way to help.

@  Plokatron : (30 August 2016 - 07:25 PM)

Whoop I'm back and been a way for a while. But I'm back and I'm going to try to stay with the forum more often. Also to anyone interesed I just made a update to my Sprite topic http://www.allspark....shop/?p=3325815

@  Bass X0 : (30 August 2016 - 01:10 PM)

Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

Yeah, and Alola Form Sith are fire-type.

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 August 2016 - 05:37 AM)

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

@  Rycochet : (29 August 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Sith Robes? Really?

@  Kalidor : (28 August 2016 - 09:48 PM)

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  unluckiness : (28 August 2016 - 09:33 AM)

What, you don't find Sith robes attractive?

@  Pennpenn : (28 August 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Anyone else getting Muslim dating sites turning up in the ads? I mean, talk about mistargetted adverising...

@  Telly : (27 August 2016 - 11:21 PM)

gonna have to take a trip to dollar general in the next few days

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 09:26 PM)

Seriously, Shout Factory's Beast Wars Season 2 and 3 4 DVD set was at Dollar General for 2.95

@  Robowang : (27 August 2016 - 09:15 PM)

Whaaaaaaaaaat

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 August 2016 - 08:29 PM)

Why no, I'm not adversed to getting Beast Wars Seasons 2 and 3 DVD set for 2.95 (At Dollar General)

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:57 PM)

@  BlackMax : (26 August 2016 - 04:55 PM)

No no no, ~finger~prints!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:39 PM)

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 03:27 PM)

Your spouse's brother is a PRIEST. If you were supposed to get hit by lightning, it would've happened by now.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 11:31 AM)

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

Cake? My only weakness! *bursts into flame*

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 05:15 AM)

Much to my surprise, the Nato-Bot Roadbuster Upgrade parts are back on the market.

http://www.shapeways...hops/thebotshop

Unfortunately, you have to paint them yourself (and I assume that assembly will be required) and the price is a might steep, but hey, for those of us who missed out the first time, this is a good opportunity, yes?

I wonder if the end result will produce a sharper product. Cause the original is not up to par with third party standards.

Cool for those that missed it but as far as I'm concerned Universe Roadbuster isn't up to par with homage standards.

(...still want that scheme on Cyb.Def Red Alert.)

...so it could look less like a proper homage to the character?

I mean, it would look cool. I'm not disputing that. I just don't see where it gets us any closer to geewunnyness than what we currently have. icon-hotrod.gif

Do you want the list? icon-arcee.gif

Hulking Ultra body instead of a dainty deluxe.

A weapon at least as tall as he is instead of some dinky shoulder cannons and a pocketknife.

Less humanoid face.

It wouldn't be perfect no but it'd be a damn sight closer then what we have.

While the idea of Roadbuster being able to pound the THE HAMMER on enemies is nice, I don't really feel it

Sure Cyb. Def. Red Alert is big and all, but... He's really only got two weapons: His multitool, and his giant missile. Hotshot, on the other hand, is full of missiles and has a shank. I can see Roadbuster shanking some poor Decepticon

I'll give you the size.

The "weapon at least as tall as he is" is an enormous shoulder-mounted ICBM. It's not like we're talking about a kickass rifle here.

The face is arguable IMO, since it's still a face (albeit recessed into a helmet) and Roadbuster colors would actually serve to make it more apparent.

Don't get me wrong, if they made it and it looked good I'd probably boot the Universe version in a heartbeat... but I'm not seeing where it's so much better that I actively want it. Outside of the size, I'm seeing a lateral shift here.

Even just 6 months ago I'd have been delighted by this, but Renderform is planning to release a Universe Roadbuster upgrade kit including a new head, guns and chest piece, most likely for cheaper and in far better quality, so I'll be waiting for that instead.

did they ever give out the design for the new piece?

Nope, just the new head concepts.

I'm assuming he's a bit busy with the large number of orders for the Goldbug heads, convention exclusives and those clear weapons sets.
