btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

Well, the idea of dying during sex sounds appealing until you realize it involves crushed pelvises...

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

@  MEDdMI : (06 February 2016 - 07:48 PM)

Death by snu-snu

@Smokey Sorry to here that.

I'd laugh more at cancer jokes if cancer hadn't killed my aunt six years ago.

I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

An interesting observation about Cybertronian Medics

So I was thinking about Spectrawave and Paradron Medic and her friends and observed that they share an inordinate amount of green coloration. So I went looking for other medics, and found that quite a few had green as their primary/secondary color as well.

http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Buildup
http://tfwiki.net/wi...Ratchet_(Movie)
http://tfwiki.net/wi...ki/Ratchet_(SG)
http://tfwiki.net/wi...l_Flare_(Movie)
http://tfwiki.net/wi...Flare_(Energon)

Now, here's some observations.
    These span universes and continuities, so if you care to give credence to it, green may be a universal medic color.
    Medics more often appear in red and white, a coloration recognized on Earth as Red Cross or medical aid.
    Perhaps the Green+red/white coloration symbolized nutrality or pacifist stance, and when a medic decided to take up arms for a certain side, they drop the green and stick with red/white.
    This does not explain Bayformers or SG Ratchet however. Maybe they're just being jerks.
Just some interesting thoughts.

In human society, the colors of red and white come from blood and bandages (like the colors on the traditional barber pole: Red - blood, White- Bandages). Bright green (or yellow) for emergency vehicles is a common Highly Visible Color, which is nice for any kind of vehicle that might be tearing down the road for an emergency.

Obviously Cybertronians wouldn't have the same imagery for blood and bandages (unless they've taken on an Earth mode, like Ratchet), but the green still makes sense as a Highly Visible Color (assuming their color perception works the same as ours). It makes sense for medics to be very visible, especially battlefield medics, since in civilized warfare (HA!) soldiers don't fire on medical teams, as they're supposed to be neutral. In addition, if medics can be seen easily, a wounded soldier might be able to make their way to the, or otherwise signal their need for help.

Of course, the real reason so many medics have similar colors is that, well, the readers/viewers are human (obviously), and those colors are cues to us that these are medical bots.

Both of those Signal Flares you've listed are Earth vehicles in a military-style deco. I'm pretty sure you can safely say that they're, y'know, not green for some Cybertronian culture reason.

Buildup is expressly part of the GREEN MINI-CON TEAM, so we know where his green colour comes from.

SG Ratchet comes from a 'mirror universe', so I think he hardly counts.

Movie Ratchet is in an explicitly earth-based colour scheme and he even appears in the movie in a non-green colourscheme as a protoform!

And as for "Spectrawave" is that the primarilly pink guy from the G.I. Joe/TF crossover? He's primarily pink.

Signal Flare is a medic?

Also, Cons apparently do not use this, as their medics (Hook, Scalpel, Glit for example) have no such patterns or colors.

I'm wondering more what the symbolism tying the Bulkheads and the Hounds of the multiverse together with Rid Rollbar is.
