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.

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.

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

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 10:01 PM)

GoG is awsome.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 07:34 AM)

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)

...holy crap it works!

@  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.

Randy, the figures are identical 100%. Your purchases were in vain. Now go cry in the corner!


Wow, talk about bad QC on that Windcharger.

Yeah the little scar on his face. I had to fix that later.

Another picture I found on the Internet where you can see the difference in the light gray and painted gray. icon-arcee.gif

Yeah, I can see the differences in shades, though it's possible that's only because you pointed them out... isn't the general response of this thread such a nice payback for being exceedingly pleasant to people? icon-hotrod.gif

I see... minor differences in the plastic, but I'm 99% certain it's just batch variation, given how incredibly similar they are.

Also for being pleasant in the discussion itself.

But I still don't think there's any meaningful difference in these plastics, now that I can compare mine firsthand.

For some reason I read pleasant raving lunatic as peasant raving lunatic. Which seems befitting.

Could a peasant afford buying two releases of a toy for such negligible differences?

As much of a plastic color snob as I am at times, this isn't a figure where I look for a brighter white, like I would on a white car where it should be white. Any other changes on Thunderwing are totally lateral or even look a little worse. I like Hasbro's darker purple better I think, the pale purple stands out kind of weirdly on the Takara one.

It's nice to have one Marvel Comic based and one G1 toy / IDW comic based.

I prefer the United one (big surprise) as the Generations one seems too green in comparison and I do like the light purple a bit more than the dark purple. I think if they made either with the purple of the original toy that would be more preferable.

Actually, the United one is more towards the scale of off white than Hasbro's. It seems more "yellow".

To jump back a bit to the subject of Windcharger... Now that I have my United one in hand and can compare it to the RtS version I want to throw in my two cents. Sorry if I get into this... I'm sometimes something of a color theory freak.

Ok, so first off the red parts are clearly different. There's no debate on that is there?
They're a slightly different hue (with the United version being more of an apple red) and a difference in the plastic's composition. The RtS version had that semi-translucent swirly quality to it, with rivers of metallic mixed in it; whereas the United version is more opaque and has distinct, tiny sparkles embedded in it.
If both are held up towards a light (but not directly at it) the RtS version glows a bit more. (AND LOOKS VERY PRETTY TOO)

Now as for the grays... the light and dark gray plastics are VERY similar on both versions. However the colors on the United version are a little "cooler", color temperature-wise, than the RtS version. Maybe something like 10% cooler? Not a huge amount but literally side by side it's visible.
And the same thing with the paint too.

Although it's impossible for us to say for sure whether it can simply chalked up to a batch variation or if it was a legitimate design choice, but the fact that all three grays (dark, light, paint) have migrated to a cooler gray and by what appears to be the same amount would seem to me to suggest a choice by the United design team. (perhaps if only one had changed, or the changes appeared to be more random... or not all in the same "direction"...)

But whatever the case it's a nice looking figure and I'm glad I got it to replace my messed up RtS version (I minorly F'd up his head mistransforming him! DOH.)

And I paid less for the United version than I did the RtS one too! Ha ha... ::cries:: ( ; ~ ; )

Oh... and the only difference in color on Warpath is the red plastics, and the head being cast red. <- two more of my cents
My Amazon wish list~!

Yeah there is no way the change in red wasn't intentional (or a mix up at the factory). You don't go from no sparkle plastic to sparkle plastic. The gray may be batch variation, but even then I am tending to doubt it.
