@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

I do like the champagne colored legs on the US one, though I prefer the more natural silver of the JP one. Though the red on Takara's is a bit too dark.

These guys are kind of the perfect storm of expensive. Exchange rate was lousy when they were solicited, come with a new Microman figure, and are slathered in more paint than a Sherwin Williams store.

Gonna enjoy having 'em, though.

Me too. I got them from HLJ for around $76 (had a 10% discount off of their initial discount).

I mean, I guess I'd prefer to pay Hasbro's price for Takara's product, but that's unrealistic. Takara's is better to the point where I feel justified in paying for it.

I think the only thing I dislike about the deco on Takara's is that they kept the forehead red and yellow. I'd have much preferred it be silver, but that's an easy fix.

Seeing them side-by-side, I'm struck by how much more I like that weird metallic champagne color the US Blaster uses for its legs, which is not something I would have guessed. Obviously all the added trim is nice on the Japanese version, though I don't especially think the red roof is a huge improvement (or detraction).



I was immediately in awe of that when I got him. That was a really smart deco choice, just wish he had the black on his feet too.

I'd be interested to know why the Takara TF team decided to go with such a light gray over dark gray or black when all the other FoC stuff from Takara is so close to the game colors.

When his rare ability to teleport gained him membership among the Seeker battalion, Skywarp was anticipated as a young and capable new recruit. Unfortunately, his deceitful personality proved to be a character flaw, and his skills would be used only for idle trickery and practical jokes. By appearing suddenly and attacking his opponents from behind, he should be able to upstage even Starscream in combat ability, but he soon loses interest when not under the command of Megatron. In order to improve his concentration and sense of responsibility, he has been ordered to complete a training regimen in Circuit-Su.

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."

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
