BOOOOOOO YAAAAAAA-HA-HAAAAAAAAH!

@  ShadowMan024 : (07 December 2016 - 12:35 AM)

Bring it on.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (07 December 2016 - 12:34 AM)

Most likely.

Sharp rocks at the bottom?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:28 PM)

No no I did see it. The "yep" follows the waterfall.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2016 - 11:19 PM)

BlackMax.. You've never seen Emperor's New Groove? Stop whatever your doing and go watch it.. And while not nearly as good.. Watch Krunk's new groove as well!

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 11:00 PM)

Yep.

@  ShadowMan024 : (06 December 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Don't tell me. We're about to go over a huge waterfall.

@  Locoman : (06 December 2016 - 09:39 PM)

Well, you got me. By all accounts, it doesn't make sense.

Turn them into fleas, harmless, little fleas, and then put that flea in a box, and then put that box inside of another box, and then mail that box to yourself, and when it arrives... SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 06:13 PM)

Load them into cannons, load the cannons into bigger cannons, launch the cannons into orbit, then launch them back down into the Marianas Trench.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (06 December 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Load them both into cannons and fire them into orbit.

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 05:19 PM)

We'll load Trump into the cannon and shoot ~him at~ Bieber. Problem solved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 04:08 PM)

Oh yeah, like I had enough left over for a safety net after buying the cannon. I work retail here!

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:12 PM)

so long as theres a safety net i can land in sure!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:09 PM)

Hey man, I didn't get this comically large cannon to NOT shoot somebody out ot it. So unless you're volunteering to take his place.....

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 03:02 PM)

cant we just shoot him, full stop??

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Can't we just like, shoot him out of a comically large cannon or something?

@  Paladin : (06 December 2016 - 02:59 PM)

first you agree to throw Justin Bieber out into the cold & let him freeze to death...

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:14 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

@  Telly : (06 December 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Well not any more I'm not.:(

@  Telly : (05 December 2016 - 07:59 PM)

@blackmax-cold leads to snow. snow leads to delayed shipments. delayed shipments lead to a paranoid blackmax. are you SURE you want the cold??

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:41 PM)

Then make like Bart Simpson and just take it! Take it take it take it take it!

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:18 PM)

..............I ~might~ want all the cold.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 06:17 PM)

Trust me, you're not getting ALL the cold. You don't want ALL the cold.

@  BlackMax : (05 December 2016 - 06:04 PM)

You guys in Canada have nice weather! I know it! You keep sending all the cold down here to Ohio to dump snow on us.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (05 December 2016 - 05:45 PM)

But with Tauros you don't really have to worry about cars. ;)

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2016 - 04:20 PM)

At least you don't have to clean up after a bike.

@  Bass X0 : (04 December 2016 - 04:19 PM)

Bicycles? That's old school. Riding a Tauros is the thing to do these days.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:15 PM)

On a warm and sunny day, I could reach several dozen stores by bike.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

Lots of small, medium-sized and large cities within a short travelling distance of each other, and decent infrastructure.

@  Nevermore : (04 December 2016 - 03:14 PM)

I guess that's the advantage of living in a decentralized major urban region.

What If: G1 had Fems from day 1

So while on a TFwiki binge, I cam across an sandbox on Gender in TF's that got some wheels in my head turning.

What if Hasbro had actually decided to make some of the original G1 figures female from the get go? Back in the 80's Boys lines had no females typically (Scarlet, Lady Jane, and Cheetara being the only ones I recall off the top of my head), so what if suddenly Hasbro had decided to shake that trend and G1 had more female characters in it as their competitor Gobots did (Crasher and Smallfoot being main cast members as well as many supporting fems).

Would molds with prominent... chests (Jazz, Prowl, Shockwave) have been good candidates, or would Tracks have been a fem all along perhaps. Would we have seen versions of Roadrage and Discharge in the casts perhaps?

Thoughts, comments?
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

It would be my guess that female characters would still have been limited to the Minibots only. Just because it would be easier to "get away" with doing something like that as long as it's one of the cheapest toys in the line.

Wow. I had somehow missed this revelation. THAT would have been a pretty interesting character,

Sooo... And I don't know if I really wanna ask this... But has anyone tried to imagine/sketch how a Deryized female version of the a Ratchet toy would have looked?


-ZacWilliam, makes me wonder if there was ever a planed Con counterpart. Usually you got one girl on each side in the 80s...

Crazy. I thought it was going to be a link to TFA Red Alert being female and then getting replaced with Ratchet, but this is even more revelatory.

Why do people seem to think Tracks was gay? I never saw that. He sounds like Mr. Howell from Gilligan's Island, but that's it.

See, for me (no comics, ignoring the toy bios, going only by the cartoon), G1 always had femmes. G1 was over by the time I realized that Swoop (with the chest, narrow waist, long legs, ponytail, and high-pitched voice) and Wheelie (with the high-pitched voice, childbearing hips, and tomboyish "baseball cap") were supposed to be guys.

And no, it never seemed the least bit noteworthy to me that there was a girl among the Dinobots. I understood that girls are more than capable of Smashing Stuff when they want to (hell, one of my grade-school bullies was a girl, and she left as many bruises and bloody noses as the guys).

I wish people wouldn't use words like Fems and Femmes. Dunno why, but it makes me uncomfortable.

Also Soundwave would totally have been female.
