Neither is it unusual to be loved by anyone.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 December 2017 - 11:30 PM)

I mean it's not unusual for Starz content to be on Netflix...it just gets a bit more of a notice ahead of time :p

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 10:32 PM)

@Steevy It popped up out of nowhere. No one knew it was coming until it was just suddenly there. It was kind of surprising for everyone.

@  Paladin : (13 December 2017 - 09:52 PM)

i don't remember that League. was Charizard there?

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 December 2017 - 09:29 PM)

WHY WAS I NOT NOTIFIED ASH VS EVIL DEAD WAS ON NETFLIX?!

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 07:37 PM)

Yeah,Mrs Shrug actually had to return something already. She managed to buy me the thing I bought the day before the embargo went in effect and noticed in on my shelf a week later.

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:40 PM)

She makes me buy my own present and then wraps it because she doesn't want to attempt to figure out what I own already. :D

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 05:31 PM)

But she did grant an exception for half off and free shipping on that RID Bee and Grimlock set

@  Shrug : (13 December 2017 - 05:31 PM)

My marriage only has a no-toys rule during December, so I dont run the risk of doubling a Christmas present

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:28 PM)

Been together since '03 and married 10 of that. ;)

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 December 2017 - 05:12 PM)

hang on to that one, then. I've found it rare to meet someone that doesn't hassle you about spending money after a certain point in the relationship

@  MidnightFox : (13 December 2017 - 05:02 PM)

I'm married and Bass is still dead on

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 December 2017 - 04:53 PM)

As long as you aren't married, anyway

We could depict the ensuing chaos in an Obama llama drama diorama.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (13 December 2017 - 06:22 AM)

That's just asking for Obama llama drama.

@  Echowarrior : (12 December 2017 - 10:44 PM)

For pun value, the ideal plush animal for Obama would be a llama. It rhymes.

@  Shrug : (12 December 2017 - 03:31 PM)

My game clan and all our servers just shut down. No warning to any of us outside upper admin. :(

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2017 - 01:55 PM)

But a stuffed monkey in a little suit would be adorablooohhh I get it now.

@  Paladin : (12 December 2017 - 11:21 AM)

knowing the people behind it, the Obama stuffed animal would probably be a monkey.

@  Pennpenn : (12 December 2017 - 06:43 AM)

The only thing that would make that even dumber would be if there had been some "Obama bear" made at some point and Trump had made a tweet scorning it.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

Just look up the horror of "Trumpy Bear"

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2017 - 12:14 AM)

$40 for a teddy bear with Trump's "trademark hair". Can't stop milking his image even in office...

@  Shrug : (08 December 2017 - 10:38 PM)

But why male models?

@  BlackMax : (08 December 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Because they're too big for carrier pidgeons...?

Different subject.

 

On the Matrix of Leadership page under the Cybertron comic subsection of the Robots in Disguise (2001) cartoon section is the following note:

Note: This was the first fictional use of the detail sculpted into the Robots in Disguise Prime toy's Super Mode chest as the Matrix; the Robots in Disguise cartoon had opted to portray it as a power socket, and treated the Matrix as an energy, as noted above.

A look through the page edit history shows that this note was written by you, Chris.

 

When exactly was that chest detail portrayed as a power socket in the cartoon?

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.

Is that still there? I would SWEAR I removed it, because I specifically remember trying to verify it and realizing I had no idea what I was talking about.

 

EDIT: Took it out myself! (Another "flying metallikato kick" situation on my part, there, I think!)

I would honestly argue that that chest compartment was intended to be his Matrix, as Ultra Magnus was very much eyeing that part of Prime's Battle Mode body when he showed to help Magnus at the end of Magnus's debut episode.

And this cutaway image of Super Fire Convoy from the Car Robots Warriors Battle Guidebook labels that section of his chest as Fire Convoy's Energon Matrix:

Hello... I thought I'd pop in to ask a question about the TFwiki registration system. I've been trying to register in the Wiki for a while now, to post a comment / bit of trivia on a Discussion page, but no dice. I've tried to put in the captcha code several times, but the site always claims I got it wrong. ._. Are the registrations buggy or just disabled? Not sure what's going on.

 

Anywho, I figured I could post my comment / "bit of trivia" (rather, a funky coincidence) here instead. This picture of Nemesis from Spotlight Doubledealer reminds me heavily of Shu Shirakawa's Granzon from Super Robot Wars OG, a PS2 game from 2007 (a year before the Doubledealer comic came out). The Granzon does that exact same pose in the games when it generates a black hole from its chest (from 2007, from 2016). A coincidence or maybe the artists knew SRW?

I wouldn't take it as a reference just from a similar pose but it seems like something you can try ask the penciller. He seems somewhat active on Deviantart and there's a contact thing on his website.

Of course, he might not even remember what references he used for a panel drawn almost a decade ago.

Well I figured we should have some kind of grace period while potentially preliminary information was being disseminated, but if everyone else thinks it's safe, then by all means I'm for that.

I assume the Takara release will include both.
