Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Wow, they really had to cut corners to include those Mini-Cons. Cliffjuimper's ill-fitting stickers remind me of a Big Lots knockoff.

I just can't understand this. They have actively worsened the appearance of the figures by actively cutting corners in order to create new add-on features as a universal gimmick that ISN'T PART OF THE FICTION. WHAT.

EDIT: Hang on - just read this somewhere else, hadn't realised it before - these Mini-Cons are coming unpainted and unassembled? Still on SPRUES?

It's actually pretty easy to understand when you look at the price tag. These things cost about 1/3rd less than prior toys of the same size-class.

Well, if the sudden reduction in mass, size, and complexity for the Prime line was actually a Takara initiative, I guess we know where Hasbro got this influx of profit to pay for 40 Generations toys...

I don't know about that first part, as all the pictures show them painted metallic colors - unless they're just cast in them instead.

Looks like they're cast in the same kind of pearlescent semi-metallic plastic as Japanese FE Bulkhead (and two of the most recent Arms Micron giveaways), with all the rest of their color coming from stickers and their clear plug-in symbol plates. I don't think they've even got painted faces.

I'd really like to know what led them to think that step 1 would lead to step 3.

Well, I guess for Japanese kids, these won't have to "compete" with Hasbro's releases.

By the way, why did they have to put all those bumps there anyway? Couldn't they have simply put peg holes on the vehicle parts without making those ugly bumps? Would still look distracting, but not as bad.
