Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Okay, I think any and all issues people had with MP Bumble's face were those pertaining specifically to his frowny face, cuz that smiley face of his looks pretty good.

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.

Not my photo (it's ambitron from TFW2005), but the face looks accurate to me.

The face is fairly cartoon accurate, it just has a strange fleshy, gooey pinch to it that makes it look a little weird.

 

The helmet shape is "wrong" though. That curve on the sides comes down a bit too far, which is what gives it its Unicron look.

I see what you mean NightViper, the angle turn on the lower part of his head should sit up a little higher than it does.  However, I don't have a big problem with it.  I still look at that head and think of Bumblebee.

Obviously this just confirms that Bumblebee is the son of Unicron, and his domination of store shelves is an evil, demony plot against humanity...

His head is off proportionally in quite a few ways.  As mentioned, the horizontal edge on the sides of the helmet have been pulled down too low, the "chin" panel on the bottom is slightly too wide, and the eyes probably needed to be just slightly bigger.  I'm not sure about the nose exactly, since some of that appears to be lighting.

Keep in mind that this isn't quite what Bumblebee's head looks like - PoweredConvoy's picture shows the real story.  The head is too wide at the bottom and not rounded enough, and then they topped it off by rounding horns that already didn't have enough angle.  Voila - instant terrible head.

Some interesting details in here.
http://www.tfw2005.c...details-181417/

SydneyYs translation:

Generations (Legends) Arcee was developed by Hironori Kobayashi with a corroboration with Yuki Oshima of Kiss Players fame.
Minicon "Carnivac" will be available at TRU from mid-November as a giveaway to customers who spend more than ¥3,000 Transformers products.
Dark Knight Scorn, Strafe and Slug will be store exclusives, but the identity of the stores is TBA.
Fembot character & weapon descriptions
The fembots will be released on Valentine's Day. In Japan the day is quite different from the West. A girl is supposed to give chocolate to a guy she fancies (or all the guys at her work/class/etc.) Romance!

LG-10 Arcee
Arcee is the first female Transformers character who was part of a main cast - in Japan she's known for her active role in the 2010 series. The focus of her character design was on the feminine appearance, and was too difficult to recreate as a toy with the technology available at that time. There was a plan of producing her as a Headmaster, but that did not materialize either. Mr. Kobayashi, who is responsible for this product took extra care to perfectly realize the screen accurate transformation process and proportions. Mr. Oshima corroborated from the early planning stage. They did not compromise on any details on her feminine style.
(An interview with Mr. Kobayashi will be featured in the next issue.)

LG- 11 Chromia
Chromia is a sub-character who appeared in G1 episode 41 "Search for Alpha Torin" (US G1 episode 53). She is a sub-commander of "Woman Cybertrons" and a girlfriend of Ironhide. In Galaxy Force, a character with the same name appeared as a female Destron character. In Revenge of the Fallen, the character appeared as a part of the Autobot bike team with Arcee and Elita-1.

LG-12 Wingblade (Windblade)
An Autobot who has the ability of a telepathically link to Metroplex. She was the winner of "Fun Choice Bot" poll by Hasbro. In the poll Hasbro provided the options for the motif, colors, faction, characteristics and weapons and combined the popular choices.
The head sculpt design incorporates the motif of a courtesan and Kabuki stage makeup reminiscent of Nijika, a mechanical doll in another world who appeared in "2010" episode 27 (US G1 episode 92). (Note: for Wingblade, the word used to describe her motif is Oiran, not Geisha. Oiran is a professional high class courtesan, very cultured as well as being able to sing and dance (and sleep with their patrons). During the time Oiran class existed, a geisha was only a background musician. If you are interested I recommend looking it up - it is interesting.)

AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime
An explanation is offered for the face change gimmick, the color scheme of the figure, and the weapons:
- Face Change gimmick - The center part of the face go up and rotate the face part to change between mask on and off faces.
- Chest/Torso - New layout for the armor plates with extra paint applications including gold. Front flaps/plates are new molding.
- Sword and shield design based on the his appearance on the screen. To differentiate from the other versions, this sword is named "Temenos Sword".
- Re-creation of the gauntlet arm parts.
- New molding to make the feet/toes more screen-accurate.
- The figure will be packaged holding the sword with both hands, as seen in the movie posters and such.

Cybetron Satellite campaign #3 - From mid-October at Cybertron Satellite (affiliated retail stores). Customers who spend more than ¥3,000 on Transformers merchandise will receive an exclusive Drift sticker. The second "Satellite Point" campaign will be on soon as well.
Block+Radio Control+Transform! - Nanoblock Motion Chro-Q, build the vehicle body with nanoblocks on a Choro-Q size chassis. The first lineup of this series is a collaboration with Transformers. Re-build the vehicle to the robot, and the chassis can be controlled with a smartphone application. Convoy and Bumble are due out late November. ¥4,860 each.
Carnivac present campaign - Giveaway to customers who spend more than ¥3,000 on Transformer merchandise at ToysRUs. Carnivac is a smoky black clear Mini-Con and named after a Pretender Beast. His motif is Lockdown's minion Steeljaw in Lost Age.
Movie Advanced Series EX Rollbar - Mid-November, TRU exclusive. Overseas "Generations" Skids mould and the deco is based on Shane's car in Lost Age.
Transformer Expo merchandise on sale - Limited numbers of some items available at TakaraTomy Mall online stores. Many illustrators and manga artists visited the Expo and as well as the autographed arts shown here, there were original TF visuals.
Dinobot Black Knight complete! - Slug, Scorn and Strafe. Store exclusives. (Strafe - Cybertron Satellite exclusive late December. Scorn and Slug - stores TBA, mid November.)
Coming soon! - MP Bumble, Legends Whirl, Roadbuster and Tankor.

Fun fact from Type-R:

As said above, Horinori Kobayashi was one of the designed on Legends/Generations Arcee. Kobayashi landed his job at Takara because of his scratch-built BotCon Japan 98 Arcee. So, in a very cool way, hes come full circle now.
