I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:29 PM)

...and now that I've sat home a short bit I realize I completely forgot to look for Ross, TJ MAXX or Marshalls in the area. Damn.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 09:20 PM)

Just found RiD Warriors Bisk and Ratchet, plus TR Hot Rod, while hunting. It was a good night.

@  Strafe : (02 December 2016 - 07:36 PM)

I liked that one, too. I'm not a fan of the guy at all, but "A Few Good Men" is still one of my all-time favorite movies. He's fantastic as Lt. Daniel Kaffee.

@  Kalidor : (02 December 2016 - 06:24 PM)

Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 11:36 PM)

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

@  Kalidor : (01 December 2016 - 11:24 PM)

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

I should have said "not staying together", but anyway.

@  unluckiness : (01 December 2016 - 06:50 AM)

My Astrotrain had that but some floor polish on the tabs helped.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 03:40 AM)

Holy crap or holy carp? ;)

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 08:41 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 07:14 PM)

Hold the button (orange spot) on his chest and push them down till they click.

@  BlackMax : (30 November 2016 - 06:05 PM)

The horns can never be kept down! \m/. >_< .\m/

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 04:19 PM)

I was about to say.. I have no problem getting him to stay together in any mode. The horns was the worst thing for me. But I got that fixed.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 November 2016 - 12:12 PM)

Cold showers.

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:11 PM)

Oh, what's the trick to getting his horns to stay down?

@  unluckiness : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

Alolan baristas say the darndest things

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2016 - 08:26 AM)

I like Alpha trion. Just gotta see if his horns will stay down now that I learned the trick.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

@  Msol : (29 November 2016 - 10:12 PM)

Hot damn Astrotrain is way better than I was expecting.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I would've guessed that unaired theme for Beast Machines.

@  Gizmoboy : (29 November 2016 - 04:11 PM)

yes, Lightbright is correct on that one

@  Lightbright : (29 November 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas?

@  Bass X0 : (29 November 2016 - 01:36 PM)

Name the song by the lyrics - "I'm a beast when you turn me on, into the future Cybertron"

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2016 - 05:47 AM)

Ultra Matryoska.

@  BlackMax : (29 November 2016 - 04:55 AM)

That'd be CW Ultra Magnus, I would think.

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 November 2016 - 01:22 AM)

Hm. Titans Return Rowboat Girlyman?

@  BlackMax : (28 November 2016 - 09:09 PM)

TR Alpha Trion looks like a Space Marine Primarch. Specifically, I'm thinking Fulgrim.

Well, they can use the Skybyte and Sideburn Timelines toys as their RiD selves in the 2012 comic, but add supporting characters. I could see a box set with X-Brawn (Universe Ironhide or RTS Fallback), Scourge (G2 Laser Prime Deluxe), Ro-Tor (Deluxe Tomahawk) and maybe some others.

Although I'm amused at the idea that they might put a version of RID into the American G1 cartoon universe.

Well that Jetstorm guy might be RID Jhiaxus, but it's in the G1 Universe so no telling if he's RID Jhiaxus or someone else (or RID Jhiaxus repurposed to G1/G2 Jhiaxus).

I wonder what molds they'd use as RID Prowl/Mach Alert and X-Brawn/Wildride (boy the Car Robots names are so much better than the RID ones)?

See, I'd want the Predacons to go with Sky Byte, but the best choices are Revenge of the Fallen Scouts Skystalker, Depth Charge and Knock Out, and no way is Fun Pub going to use Scouts.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

Weird thought, slightly on-topic: could Sky-Byte from G2: Redux be an extra-dimensional plant from the Underbase just like Side Burn from Shattered Glass? The invasion of Underbase warriors hinted at in TransHuman could create a BotCon crossover event between the Wings and SG universes, and an excuse for more RiD themed repaints.

I would love to see a RID themed Botcon. We already have a Sky-byte Megatron (Deathsarus) Sideburn is here and many others have thrown around X-brawn from Classics Ironhide and Prowl from Red alert I know somebody mentioned Scourge from G2 prime. Darkscream from FunPub club exclusive Airazor (new head oviously) Im still working on the other three souvenirs slapper, Gas skunk and Brutter (Bruticus)

What I wanna see is a box set consisting of Energon Constructicon Maximus repainted and new heads into the Build team.

Steamhammer: Wedge
Sledge: Grimlock
Bonecrusher: Heavyload
Dustorm: Hightower
and the new recruit Wideload: Xloader

Xloader is a recent parolee from a short sentence of community service. He was caught building unapproved upgrades for his freinds booster packs using powerful but unstable materials. One of his prototypes had a little too much juice and lets just say Cybertron has few new dents. So fresh out of fixing his mistake he has been given an oportunity to help increase the build teams powerful potenial

Souvenirs

#1: Prowl and Xbrawn

#2: Scourge and Darkscream

#3: Gasskunk and Slapper

Free antendee fig: Brutter predicon dog (bruticus)

It's getting to be that time again.

Could easily do PCC Steamhammer as Wedge. Throw in drones and Sledge as Grimlock and you sort of have a sizeable "Build Team". But I can imagine that might eat up more set budget than anyone really wants so...

I don't know why you would think this. The characters who've turned out to be Underbase dudes have all been specifically called out in-story as being "off" in one way or another. That's not true of Sky-Byte; in fact, he plays a little better with G1 cartoon precedent than most of the other "new guys" in G2R, given that Quintessons making evil Transformers who call themselves Predacons was already a thing that happened.

Or this. Out of three known Underbase characters, only one of them is RID-related. Post-G1-related, yeah, but not RID in particular.

interesting... brainstorming on this was taxing, since most of the major players are either too obvious (Scourge from RTS G2 Prime), too similar to stuff that's already been released (Dreadwind/Smokejumper), or have already been done (SideBurn). Overall, the SpyChangers would be an easy option for con exclusives and freebies. Universe SIdeswide/Sunstreaker would be good molds for them, but there's also the Jazz, Mirage, and Drift molds that could be used for variety.

As mignash mentioned, RTS Fallback mold as X-Brawn would be the better choice, mainly cause the Universe Ironhide mold is pretty lousy.

To be more random and use non-show, but RiD toy characters, Terradive as Nightcruz could be cool, and if the mold would be available, Thunderwing as Jhiaxus would work.
