It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

The same TFW2005 user who also briught up the change to the Kreon 4-pack.
https://www.tfw2005....9#post-17958236
 
 
 

At least in Orlando, Evac is no longer sold. The space where he might normally be is where other figures or items sit now.
The Kre-O set has been amended to include a generic “N.E.S.T. Sentry” robot Kreon in place of Evac.

So there are at least three versions of the Universal Kreon 4-pack out there:

Set number A9370 - old mold Kreon bodies, including Evac
Set number B6094 - new mold Kreon bodies, including Evac
Set number E5029 - new mold Kreon bodies, including N.E.S.T. Sentry in place of Evac

So.. Hasbro Selects figures from WFC-GS01 up until WFC-GS09 Hot Shot came in packaging that only says "War for Cybertron Trilogy", but had Siege-style red instructions that specifically featured the "Siege" logo.

 

WFC-GS10 Soundwave Spy Patrol 3rd Unit also comes in packaging that only says "War for Cybertron Trilogy", with "Earthrise-style instructions aquamarin instructions.. that also only say "War for Cybertron Trilogy", not "Earthrise".

 

Hasbro is really trolling us.

Spoiler

 

Hasbro Pulse's listing for Soundwave Spy Patrol 3rd Unit labels Knok as an Autobot while the instructions say Decepticon. Which should be considered the error? I point out that John Hasbro made Earthrise Doubledealer so 1980s that the figure can display either Autobot or Decepticon insignia.

Question.

 

I get that we're moving the Micromaster Stations to the names of their Micromaster operators based on how their new toys are coming out with those names, but why aren't we moving them to "Ironworks (station)", "Greasepit (station)" etc.? Where does the "(facility)" disambig come from?

 

They were sold as the "Micromaster Stations" assortment back in 1989, so why are we no using that?

"(facility)" comes from the normal-ass English word "facility" that is a description of what they are that the Micromaster operators aren't.
 
"Station," hilariously, is not that, because if you interpret it as a common noun then Ironworks (facility) and Airwave (facility) are things that would not normally be called station, but if you interpret it as referring to the Micromaster Station assortment then Ironworks (Micromaster) and Airwave (Micromaster), the guys we're trying to disambiguate them from, are from that assortment.

So. We still need to merge the "Beast Wars II" and "Beast Wars Neo" toyline pages into the main Beast Wars toyline page (or alternatively create an entirely separate page for the three portions of the Japanese Beast Wars pre-"Metals". As we've previously established, none of the toys are branded "Beast Wars II" or "Neo" on their packaging, it's all one continuous toyline prior to the "Metals" branding. Since I've already merged the various Japanese G1 toyline pages pre-"Return of Convoy" into the main FSRL page, I think it's time we do the same for the Takara Beast lines.

 

Now before I do this, I'd like to discuss the following first:

- Keep it all as a sub-section on the main Hasbro Beast Wars toyline page, or create a separate Takara Beast Wars toyline page?

- How do I keep the revision history for all three pages so the contributors are properly acknowledged?

- Where does the "Super Lifeform" portion in the title come from? I only see "Transformers Beast Wars" in katakana on the toys' packaging. Is that another instance of "cartoon title applied to the toys because... because"?

EDIT: Yes it is... Compare:

 

Japanese cartoon title: "Beast Wars Super Lifeform Transformers"

BW Japanese cartoon title.jpg

 

Japanese toyline title: "Transformers Beast Wars"

Soooo. Expanded the page on Nasta and the relevant explanation in Enemy's "Notes" section.

 

Here are all the Nasta toys I'm aware of.

 

Nasta_Electronic_Helmet_1.jpg  Nasta_Electronic_Helmet_2.jpg  Nasta_Electronic_Helmet_3.jpg  Nasta_Electronic_Helmet_4.jpg

The "Electronic Helmet" states its faction as "Heroic Autobot". No character name given, even though the helmet is based on Optimus Prime.

 

Nasta_Tech_Specometer_Eleven_1.jpg  Nasta_Tech_Specometer_Eleven_2.jpg

The "Tech Specometer Eleven" also states its faction as "Heroic Autobot". No character name given.


Nasta_Mini_Headset_Radio_1.jpg Nasta_Mini_Headset_Radio_2.jpg  Nasta_Mini_Headset_Radio_3.jpg

The "Mini Headset Radio" states its faction as simply "Autobot", and the character's name (?) as "Freedom Fighter".

Also updated Freedom Fighter's page.

 

Nasta_AM_Personal_Wrist_Radio_1.jpg  Nasta_AM_Personal_Wrist_Radio_2.jpg

The "AM Personal Wrist Radio" states its faction as "Heroic Autobot". No character name given.

 

Nasta_AM_Radio_1.jpg  Nasta_AM_Radio_2.jpg

The "AM Radio" states its faction as simply "Autobot", and the character's name (?) as "Freedom Fighter".

 

Nasta_Pulsating_Light_AM_Radio_1.jpg  Nasta_Pulsating_Light_AM_Radio_2.jpg  Nasta_Electronic_Voice_Synthesizer_1.jpg  Nasta_Electronic_Voice_Synthesizer_2.jpg

The "Pulsating Light AM Radio" and the "Electronic Voice Synthesizer" both only state their faction as "Heroic Autobot". No character name given, even though both are both clearly designed as representations of Ultra Magnus.

The "AM Radio Headset" and the "Electronic Voice Changer" both state the faction as "Decepticon", and the character's name (?) as "Enemy". This was later canonized by TakaraTomy with the "Enemy" redeco of the G1 Frenzy/Rumble toy included with Encore Soundblaster, and again later with the Masterpiece "Cassettbot VS Cassettron" four-pack that included an "Enemy" redeco of the Masterpiece Rumble/Frenzy sculpt. 

 

Nasta_AM_Wireless_Microphone_1.jpg  Nasta_AM_Wireless_Microphone_2.jpg Nasta_AM_Wireless_Microphone_3.jpg Nasta_AM_Wireless_Microphone_4.jpg  Nasta_AM_Wireless_Microphone_5.jpg

The "AM Wireless Microphone" states its faction/function as "Decepticon—Enemy". The character's name (?) is "Microphone", even though the toy is clearly designed as a representation of Megatron.
