Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

Which store brand is it?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)

SEND THE BOOKS!!

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

... Yes, it is!

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

Ok I decided to get around to taking real pics of the stuff. Its kinda a "where's waldo" type arrangement, but for me it is easier than any of the systematic methods I attempted before. The whole white-shelf concept is centered around G1 and related items. It has a few KOs and non-TF things. And I also have some beaters up there that I eventually will get to fixing up. Despite what looks to be duplicates, they are not... stamping variations have a home here! For each pic I will point out some things that may not be apparent just by the photo... Also photos from phone camera and I'm not good at using it. :(

20150308_175028_zpspos3h1r3.jpg
- Lunchbox has the thermos in it
- Jetfire is the Macross tamograph version
- Ratchet with the rubsign is the mail-away version

20150308_175136_zps3k57u3gj.jpg
- To the left of the walkie talkies is sealed Skywarp Numeral Candle and Optimus Prime napkins.

20150308_175217_zpsnzj0gfba.jpg
- Box to the left of Jetfire is Inferno.
- Soundwave has FIRRIB in his chest because it is broken and can't stay in either robot or micro-cassette mode without reinforcement.

20150308_175252_zps1cg5dzit.jpg
- There is a Perceptor in that box! I swear!
- Twin Twist in box is the correct one. Topspin error tech is in the mail.

20150308_175324_zpsp81qo3dj.jpg
- two small boxes behind are Kickback and Bombshell.
- next two boxes are Canadian Astrotrain/Astrotrain and Blitzwing/Le Blitz.
- Rippersnapper has no head, so I can't make Abominus.

20150308_175423_zps1regdrko.jpg
- famous sealed Skywarp soap dish with Tracks soap.
- AFA graded Antex Camaro is the one in the clear case.
- Waddington's Jazz card game behind Hardhead.
- between Doublecross and Scorpy you can see the Thundercracker party toy peaking out.

20150308_175456_zpsfgqb5nyn.jpg
- That's Flywheels in the box behind Hunn-gurr.
- Brainstorm is in his box too but no Arcana.
- Some of the pretenders have their inner robot, some don't. :(

20150308_175523_zpsjs1xgeeq.jpg
- colorful Seekers are actually customs. So is the Road Hauler. They were made by Sto_vo_kor.
- Gobot Smallfoot is here, also a Diaclone!
- In front of Prowl II is an over-sized G1 Laserbeak.
- The Classic carded toy is Wideload with Portugese import sticker on the back.
- Icepick has the inner robot.
- The Japanese G2 Starscream has the wrong head!

20150308_175709_zpsxpqqbaax.jpg
- The purple Seeker is another custom from Sto_vo_kor.
- Shouki there, not sure if legit or KO.

20150308_175744_zps1kik8i0m.jpg
- Many KOs here. There is the over-sized Soundwave that the Laserbeak belongs to. He has KO Ravage in him because it looks better that way.
- I find many recent KOs cannot actually be transformed into Robot mode for whatever reason.
- Hidden boxed toys are 22 Starscream re-issue and TRU US Hot Rod Reissue.
- Mystery 2-in-1 Robot Fighter is boxed Jumpstarter KO.

20150308_175855_zpsjmbzbgfl.jpg
- Seemed to miss one here. That Defensor KO is fine... there is a smaller one where there are no robot or vehicle modes, only a combined mode.
- Behind the visible Defensor KO is a Dorvack KO set with Ovelon Gazette and Bonaparte Tulcas.
- That's no Diaclone in the box there, it is Kingdam F15/Diaclone Starscream KO!

I'm still working on my other shelves. This one has Autobots with newer toys on the top, and has media like VHS, DVD, VCD and books on it.

Nice collection man. Love all the little extra items and boxed stuff you have. Quick question whats the big Optimus Prime in the second picture, it looks like there's wires coming out of him?

It is the Electronic Intercom Telephone System. They are two Optimus Primes back-to-back, with a wire that connects them. It is basically a wired walkie-talkie type thing, where you can talk to a friend in another room or place by pressing a button. I had this when I was a kid, but the one I have now I got at a flea market last summer.

They can move their arms, as you can see in this pic I found online:

- Found a G2 Hero Optimus Prime at an antique store.
- also now you can see the smaller Defensor/Guard City KO.

20150321_161107_zpsnq1mjdz2.jpg
- I didn't post about it before, but this shelf is for MTMTE Part 2 Autobots.
- This is a different pic than previously... I found there is Roller that comes with the DOTM Ark playset so I put him in here too.

Presenting, The Transformers cassette for Commodore 64 released in UK:
20150329_170527_zpsqmf8zodh.jpg

Another pairing completed, the Walkie Talkie Combat Communicators:
20150329_170809_zpsuedpb838.jpg

Despite both looking to be the same box... or the one with the "Bluestreak" walkie talkies just having a "With Signal Lights" sticker thrown on, this is not the case. You can tell from the pic that the "With Signal Lights" version has a different foam insert, in fact that one has a deeper box than the other one.

Digging around in ye old picture folders I came across some GEMS! Pics of my TF collection from 1998?

These were taken on a Sony Mavica camera. If you remember those, it was the kind where you could put a floppy disk in it to save the pictures to.

I didn't like how the toys were blocking the boxes, so I redid everything. Top shelf for newer versions versions. Autobots on the left and Decepticons on the right. They are divided by The Ark with RID15 Steeljaw on top.
