It is expensive; I remember being shocked how much the taxi license actually cost when I first found out. A lot of actual drivers are just minimum wage workers, though, while the plates are owned by some fat cats who clearly have enough time on their hands to lobby the government. It probably should never have been that expensive to operate a taxi in the first place.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2018 - 04:35 PM)

In quebecs case, it really is more the government not abiding by someone supplementing their income on the side without giving them their share. Which is backed up by the taxi union screaming about all their costs. Which is kinda fair as those taxi liscences and requirements are friggen expensive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2018 - 03:56 PM)

Can't have competition. Canadian businesses surely wouldn't survive if they weren't allowed to gouge the public for all it's worth

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2018 - 02:59 PM)

Nope, montreal driver. Uber is all but illegal up here.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2018 - 01:42 PM)

so you're an Uber?

@  Plokatron : (22 March 2018 - 12:52 PM)

Ah my mistake. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (22 March 2018 - 06:43 AM)

Only when they walk in front of my car... and even then it's usually just the one bump. :D

He has very strong feelings abotu jaywalkers.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 March 2018 - 12:45 AM)

Plokatron: Wonko the sane said "hipster" not "hippie".

@  Plokatron : (21 March 2018 - 11:22 PM)

@wonko the sane? Why run over poor Beachcomber? I mean sure he's a bum but that's no reason to hate the poor bot. (Animated Beachcomber right?)

@  Bass X0 : (21 March 2018 - 04:43 PM)

Okay hippies. But still close enough.

@  Bass X0 : (21 March 2018 - 04:42 PM)

Earthbound taught me that you need to keep hitting those guys with wooden bats to make them come to their senses.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 March 2018 - 02:04 PM)

Saw a hipster in the wild today. Handlebar mustache and all. Took everything I had not to run his jaywalking ass over.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 March 2018 - 07:33 PM)

I figure as much, but I don't know how the Hispanophone world likes their sci-fi names.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 March 2018 - 07:33 PM)

Am I to assume that Spanish-speaking TF fans speak the names "Salt-Man X" and "Salt-Man Z" with "equis" and "zeta"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 March 2018 - 03:22 PM)

I want Bomb Chicken. That's just so insane. And looks fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2018 - 03:15 PM)

Actually: yeah. Usually there's some discussion at least in fun and games. But it's dead right now.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 March 2018 - 02:21 PM)

Kind of suprised no one is talking about the Nindies direct. I thought some of the games looked fun.

@  Paladin : (20 March 2018 - 02:09 PM)

wow. Twitch is doing a livestream of every "Mr Rogers Neighborhood" episode to celebrate his 90th birtday.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2018 - 07:16 AM)

At least you know where and when it'll stop. It's completely random up here.

@  Pennpenn : (19 March 2018 - 11:47 PM)

Should probably order some stuff from BBTS, on account of the whole "Australia never gets wave 2" thing

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 March 2018 - 04:24 PM)

I just want the rest of my pre orders to come into BBTS, so I only get one shipment. x.x After all, unlikely toys R Us is going to get the Gold Zeo Staff.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 March 2018 - 03:37 PM)

I don't pre-order often. Between shipping and the exchange it gets very expensive, very quickly. But I desperately want volcanicus, and I know it'll never make it's way entirely up here.

@  Plokatron : (19 March 2018 - 02:31 PM)

@wonko the sane? I got three preorders in place right now. Star Wars Millinium Falcon, Nemisis Prime HoS, and Optimal Optimus. I had the old Optimal toy but it's Carbon dust and slag in a landfill now. Not to my fault either blasted fire.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 March 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Yeah, I jumped on the pre-order when it came up. They are not going to show up locally, so I did what I had to do to get volcanicus.

@  Dekafox : (19 March 2018 - 11:31 AM)

Darkwing/Blackwing's the only deluxe I still need to find myself

@  Paladin : (19 March 2018 - 11:14 AM)

they had Sludge & Snarl? *checks* shit, they DO!

@  wonko the sane? : (19 March 2018 - 10:50 AM)

Yay! BBTS finally shipped the last of my dinobots!

@  2018 : (19 March 2018 - 09:45 AM)

I'll accept that.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 March 2018 - 09:44 AM)

Kirby is better! *runs and hides!*

@  2018 : (19 March 2018 - 09:13 AM)

Bloodborne is better.

@  CastletonSnob : (19 March 2018 - 07:46 AM)

I think Dark Souls is one of the best games of the decade

@  MEDdMI : (19 March 2018 - 06:58 AM)


@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 March 2018 - 08:00 PM)

I'm home. Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (18 March 2018 - 06:23 PM)

So this is wine drunk... yeah, bnot bad. I'll take it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 March 2018 - 06:01 PM)

What's to stop anyone from lying when they answer here?

@  D Buster Prime : (18 March 2018 - 05:51 PM)

So who is voting for Apeface in the 1st round of March Mayhem? Just asking for curiosity's sake. There are no obscene bets among the staff riding on this....

@  Foffy : (18 March 2018 - 02:17 PM)

May the ham be with you

@  Plokatron : (18 March 2018 - 01:27 PM)

Welp I entered the March Mayham let's see how far I get.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 March 2018 - 10:29 AM)

Especially with current graphics card and RAM prices.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 March 2018 - 10:29 AM)

I'm looking at building me a little budget windows machine for games and am looking at the new AMD Ryzen APUs

@  Benbot : (17 March 2018 - 08:10 PM)

ok, good, that should save me a couple bucks

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 March 2018 - 08:05 PM)

@Benbot Only if you REALLY need the computational power. For most average uses..probably not unless the price difference is small

@  Paladin : (17 March 2018 - 07:54 PM)

got lucky & found the Studio Series voyagers. Keeping Starscream but does anyone want Optimus? LMK.

@  Benbot : (17 March 2018 - 07:25 PM)

Is it worth spending extra for an i7 processor over the i5?

@  Plokatron : (16 March 2018 - 09:22 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw Oh my that sucks cold slag my friend. I am with Arazyr I hope you get out safe and sound and hope everything goes well.

So, the Jem and the Holograms comic should debut any day now, (I'm guessing the 17th,) and the movie is slated for an October release.  I thought it might be worthwhile to have a general discussion topic for the series reboots.
Here's a link to bios for the band members for the Holograms and Misfits for the comic.  There's some interesting info in there, not the least of which is that Synergy apparently adds a full six inches to Jerrica's height as Jem to put her on equal footing with the lanky Pizazz at 5'11".  Not sure how much of that is due to those insane shoes...
Oh, and here's a link to an in-universe interview of Jem by Rio.  Interesting that he seems to be some music scene blogger now, as well as possessing a fierce duckface. :D
My SO and I have been rewatching the episodes of late and having a good laugh at how crazy things could get with attempted homicide right out of the gate, not to mention the breakneck pacing the show had!  We had both only caught little snippets growing up, so it's been interesting going back and seeing it from the begiining.  We've both already had to reevaluate our opinions on Rio, for example.  Poor guy was trying to do the right thing.
Well, hopefully this is enough to get some discussion going.
EDIT: And somehow I typoed the title.  Hopefully somebody on staff will be kind enough to correct that for me. :doh

You're welcome.  I could rehash some of the older information as well if people want it collected in one topic.  I know that we had some good discussion on the show before around the announcement of the movie's cast, so I'm hoping that the comic's debut will get some interesting dialogue started.  Otherwise, I might be forced to draw random fanart to amuse myself. ;)

There was the one with the tiny pic of the live-action movie and the confirmation that Kimber and Stormer will be a couple in the comics, and there was the cast announcement one, which I can't even find any more.

My JEM status?

Comic looks like it may be a perfect update.

Movie looks... Like it's kinda off base but it's really early to judge.

As long as the bulldozer transforms...

Btw, what's the GI Joe / Transformers link in Jem again? Hector Ramirez the reporter?

There are several, it seems.  Including Vector Prime declaring the show's events canon in the G1 cartoon universe in the second AllSpark Almanac..


But yes, Hector Ramirez is in Jem and the Holograms and the Transformers, as well as GI Joe and Inhumanoids.   For a bumbling idiot, he seems to be a plot (and/or disaster) magnet.

It's been over a day, so I don't feel too bad doubleposting.


Thee comic won't come out tomorrow- I cleared that up with the local comics shop and verified that it will be released next week on the 25th.


I also did up a quick Stormer doodle because why not. EDIT: Added Kimber.




If people like it, I might upload the full size version to my dA account and make some more.
