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.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  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.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

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

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

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

Just keep him away from the plumbing, he's really hard on the pipes.

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 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.

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

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

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

I would like something to this extent in any case. Even with the MP out there.

 

 

 

A redeco of Combiner Wars Prime with a trailer would work for me. The mold is already designed to combine with stuff.

What's that? Energon Optimus you say? WILL DO!

 

 

 

 

I hope it's true and I hope he includes Minimus Ambus in some capacity.

It'll be a sticker.

I care way more about Powered Convoy than Ultra Magnus, so if this toy is really going to happen, I'd want the hypothetical inner-robot to be a white cab Optimus that can be repainted into a blue cab Optimus. Minimus Ambus wouldn't really work for that.

I know this is actually completely irrelevant but seeing the stand-alone art of Ultra Magnus on the cover of this week's issue of MTMTE was making me think of Ultra Magnus Toys in the days leading up to this rumor.  We don't get a lot of stand-alone individual dude pin-up comic book cover art that isn't somebody's packaging illustration.  But it's by Cahill (not Jimenez or some other mainstream comics guy) and it's a bit early for that sort of thing if the toy is real, which obviously disqualifies it, but it had gotten me thinking about an Ultra Magnus toy all the same.

Definitely hoping for an IDW Magnus with no inner robot. I don't want the vehicle mode or big robot to suffer in any way that including a smaller figure being able to fit inside somehow would.

I doubt they'll bother at all. They're not 100% on doing comic designs straight up. I think Brainstorm might be the most recent figure that matches his comic version so well. I'd count Jetfire, but we don't know if his new design is based on the toy or the other way around.

I think Jetfire is definitely a case of the comic being based on the toy.

I'd like to see a heavy IDW influence, ideally including an Ambus, but I don't know how you really make that work without compromising the larger whole. I mean, who wants another G1 Ultra Magnus? I mean, that guy was rubbish, right? It's a dude in a thing, and not in the good way like IDW. I love him, BUT.

 

It's 2014. Can it be done? Can you design a little guy who fits into some framework made out of a larger guy who can still transform and Not Be Awful, in all possible modes?

Given MP Magnus is already ignoring that Magnus is a white Optimus in armor, I'd be surprised if a separate team decided to make a second modern Ultra Magnus toy that also doesn't incorporate it, but almost no other recent Magnus toy can be bothered, so I won't be shocked if it's just a generic one-piece guy.

 

And then I won't buy it and I'm sure Hasbro will still be able to sleep at night.

I do. I love robots that combine with stuff to form bigger robots, and modern Ultra Magus toys haven't done that for me.

Compared to a leader class Magnus, an in-scale Minimus would be Minicon sized anyway.

Given the fact that we have not seen or heard about this at any convention yet I'm going to have to side with the fact that someone made a mistake or is screwing with us.  As It would rock and be a nice addition to my collection I'm not going to hold my breath.

IDW comics felt like Ultra Magnus needed an inner robot after all, something they had not touched on at all in the 7 or so years of the comic's run, but they also didn't want Ultra Magnus to actually be Ultra Magnus so when the real Ultra Magnus died early in the war, his name was secretly passed down to other guys who wore the Magnus armor to continue being Ultra Magnus. The current Ultra Magnus is a new guy called Minimus Ambus.
