I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

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

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.

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.

So is vol.2 better than vol.1, Randy? Don't think you ever did a summary on vol.1.

I'd say they're about equal.  Both have great comics (vol. 1 had two), and nice looks at upcoming product as well as some behind the scenes stuff.  Vol. 1 might have had a little more, but they're both comparable to me.  Vol. 2's Train Wars comic is longer than the Vol. 1 Train Wars comic.

 

Here is a content listing for Vol. 1.

http://www.allspark....vol-1-contents/

 

Also some scans.

http://www.allspark....ons-2014-vol-1/

 

I'm a big fan of the comics in these, so they tend to excite me the most.  Followed by the first looks and the exclusive (the exclusive for this round is better than the first one).

 

We also get to see Shouki's third mode.  Which is him in a huge blaster configuration that GoShooter wields by holding him up over his shoulders.

One character I missed in this is Swerve.  He's in one of the last panels, very small while his back is facing us.  At first I thought it was the Generations toy but he's got a bit M on the back of his head / front of his truck.

A nice touch about Goshooter is his eyes.  They're this nice big clear block of blue, while Nightbeat's are a solid chunk of opaque red (whether painted or plastic).  With how big the eyes are, it would have been nice if Nightbeat's were clear too.

Thanks, Randy.  I've been out of the loop for a while, so there is quite a bit of catching up to do.

 

I actually prefer a bot's visor to be in opaque plastic if there are no sculpted details underneath, seems less "hollow" that way.

Good luck not only getting the gun mode to balance but also the robot to hold it.

I'm wondering if ExVee meant for you to share a scan of the gun mode as seen in the manga, rather than an attempt at it in toy form.

I'm surprised by how decent that weapon mode for Shouki is...

Also, this is kinda-sorta off topic, but I have a Generations-related question I haven't previously found an answer for. A while back, the HFTD Legends Tracker Hound toy got put on the movie Hound TFWiki article because Generations 2011 labelled it a 'movie' toy. So my question for anyone who collects these books is: did Generations also cover Reveal the Shield toys like Chopsaw, Fallback, etc. and assign them as movie or G1 or anything? It'd be nice to have somewhere to categorise all those redecoes...

Happy Halloween! Hero-X here. The deadline for the Transformers Generations 2014 Vol. 2 exclusive Goshooter is finally approaching. Tonight, we introduce the first frame of the comic included in the instructions, by Yuki Oshima.
