Osmosis.

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:22 PM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 07:18 PM)

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:44 AM)

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

So last night I had this dream where I was in a store, and there were two TFs I had never seen or heard of. One was Deluxe DotM Soundwave, with green accents on his robot parts, inexplicably called "Que". Box-art was still the same, no effort made to make the toothy Decepticon maw any more benevolent-looking.

Another was "Suburban", who I guess was supposed to be Crowbar, but didn't look like him. He had a different word in every sentence of his bio bolded, and every one of them could have been his name but it was so random that I couldn't figure out which one it was supposed to be.

What kinds of toy dreams have y'all had? Which ones do you hope and pray stay figments of your imagination and never come anywhere near the shelves?

I did actually have a dream once where I was checking the price of a new Fortress Maximus (about the size of Primus) in Universe/Generations styled packaging. Pretty detailed dream, such as the fact that it was, like I said, about Primus sized, the head turned into another robot but it was NOT a double headmaster, and there was a lot more sculpted detail on it, like adding a lot of minicon ports.

I'd love to see that in RL somehow.

I have nightmares about the day I passed up getting the Bomber Megatron and Starscream 2 pack at Canadian tire because "megatron wasn't a jet." ... coulda had a 'thunderclash' too but nope "I was a big boy then" who'd only just bought G2 Devestator for the irony of having the disposable income to just walk in and buy all 6 Constructicons.

Spank me for the 1st of only 2 times in my life BAW... I'll show you parents... 'can't get them all. pick one HA!'

yeah should'a got the ones at Canadian tire instead of the Woolworth's going out of business sale 3 dollar constructicons

Coincidentally, just the other night I had a dream that I was watching a new Transformers movie on the big screen. It was set between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.

I'm not sure if that counts as a nightmare or not.

Had the latest in a long series of "finding knockoffs amidst the real things" dreams. Movie Starscream with Prime Starscream's proportions, and a "Prime" Skywarp who was Movie Starscream with Stealth Iron Man's colors.

I once dreamt of a Deluxe F-22 Classics Starscream with a wing sword like Armada Starscream, but he had Prime Starscream-ish colors.

I also dreamt of a Samurai prowl toy before it was even announced, and dreamt of a Lugnut Supreme-like toy before the finale of TFA.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

I dreamt of power core combiner Soundwave where Ravage becomes the body, Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw become the legs, then after that comes Soundblaster where Ratbat is the body, Slugfest, Overkill, Squawktalk and Beastbox become limbs.

This one... Clear memories of walking right past both this and Thunderclash Prime, don't know what the deal was- how they got there... but I know I picked up Megatron and Starscream and said ...Nope This is not something Megatron would do with Starscream. and then Picking up the thunderclash box and looking -for a long time- at the box art, and I remember thinking "who are they trying to fool with this? there is no Way that Cab section turns into that robot.

A couple of years ago I dreamt I saw a new line with minimalist packaging - mostly white with black text and a little red, not unlike the MUJI Lego craft sets, that was part of a Hasbro environmental initiative.

The one I took off the peg was a Scout class Ramhorn, an Autobot packaged in alt-mode which was a bright red robotic triceratops. There was also a black and clear plastic Decepticon hovercraft.

Disappointed when I woke up, loved the packaging and Ramhorn seemed pretty cool.

I constantly dream about finding BW and Universe stuff on the racks alongside whatever the current line is, gathering the ones I want and heading to the register only to wake up.

Dreamt of a carded Basic-sized Optimus Primal and a Voyagers BM Silverbolt once and pretty sure there was a new Nightbeat and Scorponok in there, too.

Ok I just woke up in total fustration cos of a dream the story

Ok I was shoping online for Fs and came to a mom and pop online toy store where there when tons of lose G1s but I dint order anything but I noticed they talk about a connetor for the MM combiners like Six Turbo that allowed the random guy pluged in the back to be placed better
And that certan stored where still selling the connector so off I went to serch
Fast forward and I guess the serch was still on and I was at a newly hugey remodeled covenance store known around heres as Buc'ees and they sometime carry toys so I went looking but there toy section had moved and well I had managed to get to look in the back room
And come to find out they where a distrabution node for a lot of online retailers
Includeing the online mom and pop toy shop there was a section of shelf crammed with G1s
The firs I spoted was a Rodimus but I went digging but a lot of it I already owned
Now fustration sets in....

Wait. Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that tec has a job? I thought his sole reasons for existence are cheesecake and horrible grammar.-Shadowman024
