@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:56 PM)

Tusks doesn't exist in aligned though. Or maybe he does, but in this continuity he needs someone else to work the controls, or maybe by "piano player" the narration implies that Maccadam literally IS the piano. The universe may never know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (31 May 2016 - 09:55 PM)

Where in Aligned?

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:53 PM)

@Locoman Hmm that can't be right. The piano plays it's self. Thats Tusks not Maccadam. But yeah in Aligned he is Alchemist Prime from what I've read. Still not the G1 universes though so I'm going with the Blue Bar Keep bot as him in Primax Clusters unless I'm pointed out wrong. Edit: Oh AVP said that not just the Aligned continuity. Well I'll just go with the blue bot like I said but say thats how he looks in Primax clusters. Unless proven wrong of course.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

But he's described as having a beard, and Retribution takes place in the aligned continuity where things are weird, and AVP has basically established that he's Alchemist Prime, so...

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:42 PM)

no, he's the piano player.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:40 PM)

@Locoman Was that him then? Cause the wiki only shows the bar keep in Maccadam's entry.

@  Locoman : (31 May 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Maccadam shows up in Retribution! He talks and everything.

@  Plokatron : (31 May 2016 - 09:18 PM)

Question anyone know if the bar keep http://tfwiki.net/me...ams_destiny.jpg here is Maccadam? Or is he just the face of the joint and we still haven't seen Maccadam?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (31 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

And now my Dia Battles order has processed and will ship Any. Hugging. Minute.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 05:01 PM)

I know, I just thought it was an amusing coincidence.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:58 PM)

its easy to get shouts during the same minute.

@  Rycochet : (31 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Rob Lobclaw?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:49 PM)

Wow, I didn't even see Bass's shout when I was typing up mine. It was some freak accident that ours were at almost the exact same time, I guess.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

The Seacons should just replace Nautilator with a Lobclaw drone. It'd save 'em a lot of heartache.

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 04:46 PM)

We spend a lot of our youth wishing we were older, and a lot of our time as adults wishing we were kids again.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 May 2016 - 04:38 PM)

You still have Nautilator. YOU ALL STILL HAVE NAUTILATOR!

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 03:45 PM)

Release the Nautilator! No, really, release him, he sucks.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Feed them to the Gnawticas!

@  Bass X0 : (31 May 2016 - 02:01 PM)

Feed them to the sharkticons!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (31 May 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Or feed them to squirrels.

Oprah's couch has been reinforced by many years of smug. It can withstand great pressure.

@  Pennpenn : (31 May 2016 - 05:17 AM)

That just asks more questions about Oprah's couch, then.

@  unluckiness : (31 May 2016 - 04:43 AM)

Can it? Oprah's couch seems fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 May 2016 - 04:42 AM)

Cruise's ego can crush planets. That counts, right?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 07:38 PM)

Xenu is just Tom Cruise in a wig, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 07:00 PM)

I'm pretty sure cruze just offers the planets to xenu, he doesn't actaull eat them himself.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:57 PM)

And they both eat planets.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:56 PM)

well, it was one or the other. I might have been confused because they both have huge heads.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 06:35 PM)

I've never heard that before. Are you sure you're not thinking of Tom Cruise?

@  wonko the sane? : (30 May 2016 - 06:32 PM)

I thought galactus was supposed to appear differently depending on which species is looking at him?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 04:55 PM)

Galactus isn't goofy-looking. His hat is the grandest of all hats!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 May 2016 - 12:58 PM)

And we run into something like the Galactus Fashion Conundrum. Are YOU going to be the one to go up to his face and tell him he's goofy-looking?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (30 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

Maybe Miles's villains think you're lame!

@  unluckiness : (30 May 2016 - 11:07 AM)

I don't mind Miles but his villains are kinda lame.

@  Bass X0 : (30 May 2016 - 09:29 AM)

I just thankful they didn't have a black Peter Parker.

@  tffan01 : (30 May 2016 - 09:09 AM)

I would have preferred Peter Parker. But If they really wanted to make a non-Peter Parker lead, they could have made Spider-Man 2099, at least it has a gimmick (futurism). While Miles, imo isn't that different from Peter Parker.

@  Locoman : (30 May 2016 - 08:52 AM)

That would be cool. Ultimate Universe kind of went off the rails toward the end, but I always liked Miles.

A lot of mine have somehow gotten so floppy that floor polish doesn't help. May need superglue

@  Paladin : (29 May 2016 - 07:51 PM)

there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

@  Nutjob R/T : (29 May 2016 - 07:23 PM)

Just pulled out the Animated box after a few years in storage. Giving it some time is the godhonest truth, these things are awesome

@  Touch My Thighs : (29 May 2016 - 07:12 PM)

http://swanh.net/ This is really impressive.

My good friend periL75 just landed the Transformers score of a lifetime. Diligently checking Craigslist every morning, noon and night, he was the first to respond to an ad placed by an older couple who had several boxes of vintage Transformers for sale. For only $500, my friend took home a near-complete G1 collection:

All those toys for $500. Thats unbelievably awesome.

It's funny, I shouldn't be too jealous since I've got about 98% of the stuff in that picture myself already... But somehow I still kinda am. icon-hotrod.gif

I'd like to say it's mostly the very few I'm missing like Springer and Bludgeon. But if I'm honest... It's just the idea of getting a ton of new G1 Transformers. Even if I had everything in the pic I'd still be a bit envious of that haul.


-ZacWilliam, remembers back in high school when a kid tried to sell me his older brother's old TFs. At the time (high school, remember) I was kinda embarassed about still collecting toys so I passed. Now I wish I'd taken him up on it...

Yeah, I also have a very near complete G1 collection, but that's a pretty an extremely incredibly awesome score. I am buying a few of those figures from him to replace some of mine in worse condition. I think there's a good portion of the lot that he is selling.

weather if you have a near complete g1 collection or not is irrelevant. The fact that this person just got 1000's of dollars worth of toys for 500 bucks is amazing. And from the pictures, they look damned near complete and in good shape. Awesome find!

He'd have to be in college a loooong time at this point for those to have been his Transformers.
