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.

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.

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!

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.

Just finished sculpting this fun little side project. After hanging around this forum for over a year now, I wanted to sculpt somthing TF-related, and RotF Reverb seemed like a good victim. His deco is already a homage to Inferno, and now he can burn rubber as well as maximals!

I used the Beast Wars-cartoon head as reference, but with a lot of leeway. I made the head sleeker and left out the mandibles at the side of his head, both to match the alt-mode better, and to allow the head to fit into the vehicle mode cavity.
It?s not painted yet, some of the putty still has to cure completely before I take a brush to it.

Thanks, but I?m afraid there are no plans to cast this head. This is more of a "proof of concept", something to point to as an example, when people ask me for commissions (*hint hint*).

I?d be happy to part with the figure, though.

The mold really doesn?t. But If I did things right, the head should yell all the louder icon-fire.gif

My thought process was not "hey, this toy looks like Inferno!", but rather "I want to try and sculpt a head, which one of the few toys I have would I not mind potentially ruining?"

the wheels up top really sell the "yeah this is six-legged ant inferno" I think the only other paint I'd add though would be Black along the edges of the arms and legs

just something subtle

Curse you two!

I did not intend to do any more with this figure. But then you come along, with good ideas and whatnot, and I end up fiddling with the figure again.

icon-fire.gif


I don?t have any faction symbol stickers, so I sculpted a Predacon symbol onto his chest. The color needs to pop some more, any ideas?

And besides the awesome idea of painting in the insect legs (genius, I tell you!), I also painted his weapon, the fingers on his left hand, and I touched up the headlights, where the factory-paint was already chipped.









He even manages a goofy flight mode:
