It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:45 PM)

that's right. my gym teacher is a clown. new series coming to disney channel next fall

@  Foffy : (18 July 2019 - 04:44 PM)

all these clowns are making me run really fast.

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

I missed out on most of BW, the few figures I have are only a few stray figures I found online or repaints in later lines

All those BW figures makes me envious
I SO wish I had some of those man

Oh, and that last shot of Magmatron with his troops from the BW comics

*sigh* If only I could find them now at a decent price

hm... and why those ?
those weren't featured at al in the comics, unless you mean, the updated forms, which again, weren't seen

I meant TM2 tripred becasue he was shown as Ravage, and I thought it'd be cool to have him in a standing beast mode next to Magmatron

maybe I wasn't very clear
sorry

He'd fit there as well, but as-is I have him standing on my "Season Two" shelf, since he appeared in "Agenda" there. By all rights, it should be the Japanese Ravage X-9 but I've never managed to find him. icon-screamer.gif Maybe I'll move him back and forth from time to time.

Thanks Newsy. The "DT made me buy it" stuff is currently packed away since they're all primarily vehicle-based stuff. But I assume you did notice the members of the True Path representing?

DT = DragonTail.

He's a great Fan Fic writer over in Chronicles who has a habit of making such good and fascinating characters out of otherwise passable toys, that you're then forced to go buy them strictly because of how cool he made them in his stories.

Go check out his stuff. Go now!!

Ah dont' worry Wingus, I missed the comic shot of the Maximals, it was the Predacon shot that really stood out casue Ursa Magnus laid it out almost exactly like the first scene from the comic where they just teleported into the time line
Was an awesome scene showing off those characters in comic form

*drools*

I completely skipped the beast era in my collecting... have barely a few of the toys from those lines. Most of my beastformers are ARM/EN/CYB era, and even then only those I've used in my fics.

That said, this has impressed the heck out of me. Great display sense, fantastic choice of groupings, nice clean lines... not just the toys themselves, but the lay-out you've used is fantastic and worthy of praise. Excellent design sense you have there, brother.

With regards to the toys: I wish I knew who even half of them were, because I'm suddenly seized with the mad need to write about the lot of them. Maybe one day we can team up on that or something, because it'd be cool. And I see my boy Convobat/Bat Optimus Primal there, front and centre, so I'm cheering.

Top stuff!

Nothing wrong with that. They're great toys, and the only reason the Armada Beasts reside with the Universe stuff on my shelves is because of their use as Unicron's Four Horsemen. Otherwise, they'd proudly stand displayed with the ArmEnerTron guys.

And behold, the True Path!!!

Thanks. I tried to group them in a way that made the most sense design and "season"-wise. Transmetals and 2's all together, etc.

Thanks for the words, brother. ConvoBat has always been a neat little guy. He's so well-proportioned and poseable that I constantly find myself fiddling with him, and trying to think of a good backstory for him outside of being another incarnation of Optimus Primal.

Also, since I told you how I consider the Cybertron guys all Maximals and Predacons, I kind of keep the SupremeScream there for a sense of scale. In my mind, I figure the ratio between those guys and Screamer would be about right for Ancient Autobots/Decepticons and Maximals/Predacons.

We meant the gray version. "ConvoBat" is just a handy way of referring to him. And "Batimus Primal" doesn't have the same ring. icon-hotrod.gif
