They apparently did it for "shock value", despite it not being particularly shocking or having value.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 May 2016 - 09:39 AM)

Wow, way to spoil it for people.

Most of his latest thread got closed because he asks the same questions over and over again.

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2016 - 04:12 PM)

why is he going to get banned?

@  tffan01 : (25 May 2016 - 04:09 PM)

I like Taco Bell. But I only get to have it maybe once a decade since there are no Taco bell locations here in Newfoundland

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 May 2016 - 08:53 PM)

I think he was in my liver, actually.

@  Locoman : (24 May 2016 - 08:45 PM)

Brian Kilby was in our hearts the whole time.

@  Echowarrior : (24 May 2016 - 08:05 PM)

I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2016 - 12:21 PM)

http://uproxx.com/life/taco-bell-fried-chicken-shell/ i hate this & also want to eat this.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 11:11 AM)

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

Not sure if this is 3rd party, as I think this was licensed by Radio Shack from the same people who licensed Shockwave to to Hasbro, but I saw the Galactic Man in box on ebay and I'd forgotten it was sold as having FOUR modes! Robot, Anti Aircraft Gun, Vulcan Base Destroyer, and handgun modes.

I also love that he came with an "OWNERS MANUAL".

You'd forgotten about the other two "modes" because they're largely forgettable.

Fascinating.

Like if you went to hell, and it was full of blood, and that blood was on fire, and it was raining blood, then maybe that would be enough blood! Eh… but probably not.

What I love about it is that the two extra modes just seem to be steps in his transformation. Like someone looked at the instructions and gave the steps names.

Astro Magnum had three modes (the third being the gun emplacement mode pictured in the lower right corner). That fourth mode on the lower left is... totally made up, which is not exactly unheard of for the odd transforming figure in the '80s.

Kind of like the G1 Scorponok KO that says he has something like 7 modes which are all just random limb placements and transformation steps.

Totally made up? It's clearly a Vulcan Base Destroyer! ;-) What other weapon would you use to destroy a Vulcan Base?

Yeah, saying "You can stop transforming him at any point you want" would be more honest, but "Four figures" sounds more impressive.

And I'd hate to let my enemies conquer the universe just because I was in a hurry to get to robot mode.

Jonathan Archer once used the power of honesty, I believe.

That made me laugh. I needed that.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

I had a couple of those watches. So "battle station" mode is just the robot hand stand. And apparently the "galactic shuttle" only works in the missionary position.
