What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:22 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:21 PM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 07:18 PM)

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.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"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.

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)".

They look pretty good.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Anyway, I love him.

Starscream, looks better than expected. Colors work nice on him.

Magnus is a maybe. Would be definate if he were bigger.

Sideswipe... I'm gonna need to think about. I'm pretty happy with the CHUGUR.

Fireflight... SOOO weird a choice. He looks reall cool, but he also looks WAY out of character for the space cadet, childlike G1 Fireflight. He's not a character I'd ever envisioned looking "badass" before.

Fireflight looks bad ass, but he's so full of character, I almost wish he had a different name.

Not that this univere's fireflight can't be a bad ass, but my initial reaction was that he should have a different name.

Also, I'm hoping that Sideswipe's head fits on the Universe mold. This head is so perfectly Sideswipe it makes the Universe head look even lamer.

Starscream and Magnus will be buys. Will probably skip Sideswipe (though I do like the head) and Fireflight (get Shockwave instead). On the fence about Insecticon/Kickback.

Yes, that Sidewipe is PERFECT for Jackpot. That must happen. I'm not that interested in it as SS but as Jackpot SOLD.

Fireflight DOES look amazingly badass. Which is just wrong for childlike Fireflight... So conflicted.

Kickback looks even MORE awesome transformed right in both modes. LOVE HIM. He NEEDS to get repainted as Ransack as well! We need more Deluxe Insecticon love!


-ZacWilliam, wishes there were an Official Shrapnel he could demand be repainted as Chop Shop!

Ah, but in the world of the 'of/for Cybertron' games, everyone's a bad-ass!

Is it me, or can his weapon function as a cannon like Shockwave's can too? That's two, two, TWO weapons in one!

Really digging that Magnus, want going to get Prime cause I was Meh on him but he looks ace.

Fireflight also looks really good and different enough from Shockwave that I might get him.

Will probably wait to see wat Repaints Jazz and Sideswipe get since im happy with my Classics versions of them.

Starscream is a maybe and Kickback and Shockwave are must haves.

Kickback looks really nice.

Starscream looks great, but I hate those arm joints, they just don't give a good range of movement, unless there's something I'm missing.

Sideswipe looks nice, geez that's a big gun.

And I'm very impressed with UM and Fireflight's remolds, OP was a pass but I might have to buy this UM.

No reason you can't give him one or repurpose him in your personal fiction.

Right now I'm looking at him and thinking, "if I don't want him to be firefight, who could he be?"

Prime I may Skip & Wait for Ultra Magnus, even though I think UM will be smaller than WFC Prime.

I look at Starscream & think "I would love to see him painted as Armada Sreamer"

I just realized that Sideswipe's a ridiculously extensive re-tool of Jazz. That's kind of surprising, given Sideswipe's inexplicable popularity with fans. I would have thought they'd save him for his own mold.
