It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

But The Pillows prefer to kill you with Poison Rock'N'Roll

@  Rodimus Supreme : (09 December 2018 - 10:23 AM)

Pillows can kill you softly.

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 07:26 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 December 2018 - 05:34 AM)

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2018 - 11:11 AM)

I realized the other day that the Planet of Junk/Junkion is the interstellar counterpart to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

Nonsense. Everything changes, the cycle is an illusion.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

I finally got something off my steam wishlist! but managed to add another title immediately: so there was no change. Dang it.

@  Shrug : (06 December 2018 - 08:17 AM)

Yeah, that happened to mine a few weeks ago. Common problem.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 08:05 AM)

Oh for cryin' out loud, the yellow part on the back hinge of my TR Weirdwolf broke. Bleh. At least the red is still there I guess.

@  unluckiness : (06 December 2018 - 04:59 AM)

Man, I still haven't gotten past Rock Tunnel.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:47 PM)

Mostly. There's a book en route to my mom's house from the UK and I don't know if it'll arrive before January.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:46 PM)

Christmas shopping: complete.

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:35 PM)

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

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.
