As an outsider, whether Trump wins or loses, the results are bound to be hilarious. Not so much for Americans but you just know the most ridiculous things he will do are yet to come.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 October 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Donald Trump is a firetrucker.

@  Liege : (19 October 2016 - 07:37 PM)

Anyone else having problems watching hulu tonight? The app isn't working on both my wii u and ps4.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 PM)

I have a tablet that runs on Wi-Fi only, with all the hotspots or sharing data off my cell, it's hardly ever an issue. Just need to be careful where you connect and what you do on said connection.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:23 PM)

I've considered it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 08:22 PM)

Sounds like you might want to look into tablets with data plans.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:20 PM)

It's not even the data plan that would be the problem for me. I'd probably use the hug out of a data plan. It's the VOICE plan I can't justify. 8^)

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:19 PM)

I have an iPod Touch and a "dumb" flip-phone on a pre-pay plan. I put $100 on it once a year, and never use it all. I'd love to get an actual smartphone, but just can't justify the expense.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 06:37 PM)

The Moto phones are a good low-price option. I bought my mom a Moto E (her first cellphone, smart or dumb) and she's been really happy with it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 06:18 PM)

I've been looking at the Moto G family, personally. Seems like a good way to get a cheap one.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 05:59 PM)

For a long time I thought a tablet was good enough for me, and was pretty firmly in the anti-smartphone crowd. But after getting my first one (a Nexus 5), I became a convert pretty fast

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

Probably going to give in on that soon, though

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

I've got a cheap tablet and an old dumb-phone, been too stubborn to pay for a data plan

@  D Immortalis : (18 October 2016 - 03:47 PM)

i dont even own a cell. =]

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 03:14 PM)

My cell is about 5 years old. It barely stays alive without any apps running.

@  Gizmoboy : (18 October 2016 - 02:45 PM)

I still play every day. As for what's the point, that's a good question. I still enjoy taking gyms and leveling up my Pokemon though. I'm at 134 on my Pokedex though so I've almost got them all. :)

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 02:41 PM)

My phone hates PoGo, but I still boot it up sometimes, and my wife and several friends are still playing regularly

@  The Doctor Who : (18 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

I uninstalled it because it kept giving me "app has stopped working" errors even while it wasn't running. It wasn't something I was playing much anymore anyway.

@  Locoman : (18 October 2016 - 02:23 PM)

You'd think that all they need to do to re-invigorate the app would be to start putting in Pokemon from the second generation.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 02:21 PM)

I poke at it once in a while. Kinda forget about it a lot.

@  Benbot : (18 October 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Is anyone still playing Pokemon Go? I am, but I don't know why. What's the point of this?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 01:14 PM)

The only genderless Pokemon that can learn Attract are Cryogonal and Mew. And Mew can learn every TM anyway.

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 12:57 PM)

Can't any Pokemon learn Attract? It would just fail no matter what.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 12:43 PM)

Cryogonal can learn Attract. It's genderless. What.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 09:41 AM)

between 229 - 383 at level 100 depending on IVs, nature and EVs

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 09:39 AM)

and what IS the airspeed velocity of an unladen Swellow???

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Yamask is people

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 09:25 AM)

Yes, even male ones.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 AM)

what about Gogoat? they can also learn "Milk Drink"...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2016 - 09:03 AM)

Also ate F'fetch. And no spoilers for me either please.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2016 - 08:43 AM)

The fruit from Tropius is apparenlty edible.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 08:18 AM)

Yeah, that one's firmly established by the dairy farm in GSC

@  Locoman : (18 October 2016 - 08:17 AM)


@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 08:12 AM)

and there's at least 1 in-game store in XY that sells ice cream. what exactly are they milking in order to get that???

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 08:07 AM)

No, all they eat are jelly donuts.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 08:06 AM)

so, they EAT Pokemon in-universe right? There's no apparent "real-world" animal counterparts so their food supply has to come from somewhere...

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2016 - 07:58 AM)

I'd like to keep things unspoiled but I can't say I'd particularly mind either way.

@  Touch My Thighs : (18 October 2016 - 07:56 AM)

The main reason I play Pokemon is to explore and find new stuff so seeing everything beforehand defeats the point. Hopefully I can go 30 days without blundering into the leaks.

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 07:41 AM)

Thanks, TMT. I am trying to avoid being totally spoiled on that game.

@  Boomhauer : (18 October 2016 - 07:41 AM)

Already got spoiled. It only made me want the game more. One of the designs REALLY REALLY speaks to me!

@  Paladin : (18 October 2016 - 06:54 AM)

who would've guessed Professor Oak was really Ash's dad....

@  Touch My Thighs : (18 October 2016 - 01:50 AM)

Might put a warning here too: Pokemon Sun and Moon's demo is getting datamined and looks likely to be leaking the entire pokedex, so watch out for spoilers!

@  Msol : (17 October 2016 - 02:55 PM)

K cool.

@  Arazyr : (17 October 2016 - 02:42 PM)

I did, at first. With some effort, I got it in, and now it goes in just fine.

@  Msol : (17 October 2016 - 02:01 PM)

@  Msol : (17 October 2016 - 02:00 PM)

So hey does anyone else have an issue with TR Chromedome where his hood doesn't peg into one of his shoulders correctly?

Via Hisstank: Cobrastickers is putting the finishing touches on their replica sticker sheet so you can make your own Star-striker (as well as Thundercracker and Skywarp if you want to paint).

I bought a spare Skystriker expressly for this purpose (and because Amazon had them on sale for 13 bucks). Even at full price though, it's still cheaper than the official version and if you don't care about getting the Cobra Commander or mini-Megs this is a great option.

I don't know if this is the same folks at Reprolabels (they're both Canadian anyway), but I've bought numerous sets from Cobra Stickers and they are very high quality.

*I thought this was ok for this forum, but if it needs to move to Bot Talk, or General - thy will be done.

**Edit: Ok, looking more closely I just realized they have only made an "add-on" set for the Starscream Skystriker, not an actual replica set. They do have one for Thundercracker, but that's it for now. Sorry for the false alarm.

Honestly, I'd just like a sticker sheet for Starscream Skystriker that is actually intended/capable of fitting properly on the toy. I still haven't even bothered opening mine yet after hearing how crappy the stock decals turned out.

I'll wait until someone gets it right.

Check out my eBay sales.  Gotta pare down my massive collection into something more manageable.

Ilove the Skystriker I wish G1 TFs got a F-14...though we did get Jetfire...the ultmate Tomcat icon-fire.gif

Wait. Wait, wait, wait. Are you telling me that tec has a job? I thought his sole reasons for existence are cheesecake and horrible grammar.-Shadowman024

That's part of the reason why, back when we were still doing the Q&As, I'd always ask about real-life military markings on TFs: the Macross Veritech color scheme is a lawyer-friendly rendition of the markings for the Jolly Rogers (a now-defunct US Navy fighter squadron), and so if Hasbro could get permission to use the real-world markings then Harmony Gold wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

If he didn't watch out, he'd become one of us - a 'Mormon' or a 'straight,' which is what Clinton staffers called FBI agents, the Secret Service, and former Bush employees."
