"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:44 AM)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:43 AM)

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:08 PM)

There was a shooting near a shopping mall in Munich, currently eight or nine people are dead. Three suspects, still at large.

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

About time...

@  Nevermore : (22 July 2016 - 05:07 PM)

So now it's Germany's turn to be the target of what appears to be aterrorist attack.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 12:58 PM)

Is 14,200 Yen worth it for Takara Skull, Hardhead and Galvatron with shipping to the UK from amiami?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2016 - 11:38 AM)

I doubt anyone takes it seriously that Primax 1005.19 Gamma is indeed the original universe. That author comment is bound to be contradicted by some multiverse story down the road, anyway. Even Vector Prime in AVP said that even if it were true, there is no way for him or his colleagues to discern so, which obviates any substantial impact of "Elegant Chaos".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:48 AM)

I remember my silly haunted toy thread, 10 people voted 1 star or so sniff http://www.allspark....d-transformers/ I don't believe in haunted stuff but I still made the thread for the lulz.

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

no, he left it ambigious actually.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:42 AM)

So someone already contradicted him.

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

So really who can say

@  Locoman : (21 July 2016 - 10:41 AM)

But Vector Prime said that it just altered THAT universe's properties, allowing for the development of things like the Functionist world

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 10:19 AM)

I know he didn't create the IDW universe but he's the writer of one of its titles, that's why I said "his universe".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:15 AM)

Also it's not exactly "his (Roberts') universe" since Barber exists, even if you ignore all the earlier IDW stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:13 AM)

And it's specifically the intent rather than something that's actually in the story.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 10:11 AM)

I didn't listen to the podcast but the transcript has a bunch of laughing and he does specify "until someone can contradict me".

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:51 AM)

james roberts says it did.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:43 AM)

Perceptor said that the briefcase made alternate universes possible or something but it's not like Perceptor actually knows how all this works.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 09:42 AM)

It... didn't?

@  tffan01 : (21 July 2016 - 09:37 AM)

So, wait does Elegant Chaos story made the IDW universe the main TF continuity? What with it being the base universe. This sucks, there shouldn't be a main universe wtf, James Roberts is just trying to make his universe the most important one. If there has to be a main universe (which I don't think there should) it has to be the G1 cartoon.

WalkyCon, which was held in Columbus, Ohio, on March 18, 2012, in my house, with several cases of Guinness and some Mini-Vehicles, also welcomes third party items!

There are still some other unofficial Transformers conventions remaining that I am unsure of their stance on third-party items.

C'mon guys. Don't leave us hanging.

I'm going to boycott Walkycon because the organizer(s) refuse to have it in my backyard!

(Actually I am going to get the exclusives anyway, but I am going to say this.)

We should just compromise and make that Bloomington, IL. They have a Jimmy Johns.

Hey, I don't know about that. Didn't they have a really nice repaint of Transformers Prime Ratchet this year? I'm not sure if every attendee to Walkycon got one, but it was still pretty nice.

(Admittedly, I'm going under the assumption that Walkycon is a nonexistent event that takes place in your house. If you actually had a convention without telling anyone, I'd be disappointed.)


What were the panels like? Drunken tirades, or something like a Mystery Science Theater episode? Or a mix of both?

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

Papa Johns has to fit their pizzas to US saftey standards!

It's easy enough for small 3rd party independent pizzarias to bake five-sausages any size they want, but if one little kid died from over-sausagation Papa would catch hell!


-ZacWilliam, besides, the garlic dipping sauce clearly proves they love us.

I can only assume that Dagwoods will be a future conquest in the pizza and sub empire.
