That is entirely likely. One major problem in restaurants with varied menus is deciding how many of each item to have at a given time. Fewer items simplifies the analysts.

@  ▲ndrusi : (31 August 2016 - 05:30 PM)

It's my belief that Five Guys's success at what they do is a direct result of their specialization.

@  ShadowMan024 : (31 August 2016 - 05:28 PM)

Five Guys is basically a fricking death trap for me, what with the peantus being everywhere.

@  Bass X0 : (31 August 2016 - 05:07 PM)

Wouldn't it be awesome if Five Guys served boneless wings? The best burger for your money AND delicious hot wings. They'd be unstoppable.

Speaking of ads, I have adblock turned off for allspark and I've noticed the top banner ad on the forums tends to be broken. Today I don't see it at all. Might just be me though.

Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

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.

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."

So much better an improvement over... this:

He shows fighting power to be equal to STARSCREAM.
However, conduct of MEGATRON
If there is not it, SKYWARP gets rid of a motivation immediately.

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.
