That's kind of the problem isn't it, amazon doesn't really HAVE any competitors. Sure, there are other companies offering similar services but nothing even close to scope or scale. How do you compare against something when you yourself are the only one doing it?

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:41 AM)

Oh wait, I forgot, Amazon is a major player, so they should be setting high standards competitors should be looking up to, not comparing themselves to smaller competitors for reference.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:39 AM)

Also, if you add the maximum possible amount of bonuses, and employee stock at its peak, we earn more we would earn under a collective bargaining agreement with the union including vacation and Christmas bonuses (but not including additional vacation days, late shift bonuses, weekend bonuses and whatnot)!

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:37 AM)

But... But... we earn more than people in random other jobs that have nothing to do with us at all which Amazon randomly picked so they'd be paying better by comparison!

@  Paladin : (24 September 2018 - 06:51 PM)

Bezos' Dust is also what the Amazon staff makes, in proportion...

@  Patch : (24 September 2018 - 06:07 PM)

Don't you mean Bezos Dust?

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2018 - 03:47 PM)

What, you never wanted some Amazon-exclusive PCP?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 September 2018 - 03:33 PM)

It's pretty hilarious to see people freely throwing around "PCP" in reference to new Punch-Counterpunch figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

@  Arazyr : (11 September 2018 - 10:44 AM)

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:28 PM)

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

Big Boys Come To Play in TRANSFORMERS COMBINER WARS Crossover

Newsarma interviews Barber and Scott about the spring 2015 Combiner Wars Generations tie-in event, including some story tidbits.

Perhaps most interesting, though, is that RID is dropping the subtitle to become just (The) Transformers, and the Windblade sequel, previously announced as 'Windblade Returns', is going to be a full ongoing titled just 'Windblade'.

It's almost like IDW is trying to be deliberately confusing with names...

Man, the cartoon didn't even occur to me. I guess the comic getting renamed was inevitable.

Personally, I'd have just given RID a different subtitle. Promoting it to "main" title feels weird considering MTMTE and RID's history as sister books.

Yeah, although I suppose with RiD having Optimus and some other well-known bots fighting Decepticons on Earth, there's a good chance it was going to be perceived as the "main" book anyway.  (And I guess we could argue this maybe puts Windblade on even footing with MTMTE, at least...)

RiD (2001) joke, based on the mistaken reference to "Destructicons" at the beginning.

This is perhaps a random thought, but I really want the comics to keep referring to the Superion.

It sounds cooler, like the Batman.

Viewed from the outside, RiDW's always been the "main" book. It had Cybertron - and now Earth - along with most of the Autobots and all of the Decepticons people remember. And its plotlines dominated the crossover.

MtMtE's the wacky "try something a bit different" spin-off type book.

Weird. Explains a lot, like the characters shoved into RiD for toys, but weird, particularly considering things like MtMtE guys getting their own new toys. Any circulation figures available on them?


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

IIRC, MTMTE and RID both hovered at around 10,000 an issue, at least prior to Dark Cybertron. Not sure how it stands after the post-DC "relaunch".

Suppose the Stentarians will play into this, as will Jhiaxus, Swindle, Banzaitron and maybe D void who did something to the Decepticons that concerned none of them.

 

They have Monstructor (in pieces), Superion (fused maybe stuck) and Devastator an active part of the Autobots, Combiner wars may bring Predaking, Bruticus, Computron, Abominus, Raiden, Road Caesar, Liokaiser or Landcross to the series.

Wouldn't be much of a war if they only had several soldiers on each side. Pull more combiners from the Powercore line! Or even the all new Kreon combiners, hehe. Lazerbolt/Icebolt and Volcanicon and Obsidian/Flamewing are kinda cool.

From the July stats at ICV2:

 

TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1 23,009

TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #31 10,063

TRANSFORMERS WINDBLADE #4 9,103

TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE #31 8,706

 

Edited to add: What's really interesting about those numbers is that MTMTE and Windblade are both trending upward, which is pretty rare, while RiD is trending down.  So maybe it needs the help from being marketed as the "main" book!
