It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

How is it possible that there is a Daystar television network?

It's a Christian network, so there are enough crosses around that the name is almost apropos.

So, vaguely remember you having a distaste for most gundam designs, but what do you think of the new main mecha for the next upcoming series?

If this is what is considered the "Dumbest" by you than I really don't want to know what your reaction to a lot of other mecha designs would be.

LSotW:II: Why? Those Transformers ... are all dead.

 

The Gundam and Not-Leo ... there are thingsreally like about those, but I'm not quite sure whether I actually like them. The missing parts on the Gundam are interesting, but I think I'd really need to know how these designs are being used first. They're very aggressively weird, and I like that. And weirdly, the first Gundam designs that look like IDW TFs to me. = .

Well, this is more about the reprecussions of what went down in Wreckers.

 

So far, from the cover, we can discern that Springer'll be in it, probably still hooked up to life support, Impactor, presumably with Guzzle, Verity, Arcee, Kup, Roadbuster (with what looks like Hubcap), and Stakeout.

 

And Nick Roche seems to be taking over Prowl's story again, which is nice to see.

Hmm. Well, it'll be neat to see Springer again, if he's, like, conscious, I guess?

 

OMG, I don't know what you're on about - I just went over to Random Thoughts and saw the trailer for said new Gundam series, and it's about little robot tanks made of pure sex and amazing. I guess the Gundam kinda showed up in there? But more seriously, as, like, what looks to be an ancient plot device of great power, that Gundam design definitely works in contrast to all the crunchy utilitarian kitsch, and I approve.

 

But, uh, mostly I just want the tanks. One kit for each that appears on screen.

The Gundam is actually incomplete:

Barbatos: MS used in the war 300 years ago that was being used as a power reactor for CGC. Since its armor is degraded it cannot show its true performance. One weapon is called 長距離砲(Long Distance Cannon)

 
It's entire gimmick is that it scavenges equipment and parts from fallen foes and uses it for it's own.
 
The other one is the Graze:

Graze: state of the art MS built by the Gjallarhorn organization that monitors the world. Has an extensive option list for equipment and can thus adjust to the battlefield as needed. Weapons are called Rifle and Battle Axe

Typical state of the art grunt really.

We've got images of some other suits, but no details.

Edit: And you already checked it out. Heh.

Frankly, I'm really excited for this just based of the virtue it's hitting a lot of tropes I like in military sci-fi stuff, not to mention the general grittiness of everything. It's something I feel has been missing from Gundam for awhile given the last few series have been mostly space based.

Also, Flamenco Guitars. Because those are the absolute best.

I don't care about grit or military kitsch, but at least the tanks look realistic and practical in a way typical Gundam fare doesn't, which makes it a little easier for me to see this as a semi-serious setting. The roughly TTGL premise looks like it should be enjoyable. 

 

I mean, "grit" and "military" are apt descriptions both of MS 08th and of Stardust Memory. They are not indicative of "good" or "bad."

It's actually missing actual parts, as OMG said. That's not how the machine was designed in-universe. It's a zombie Gundam.
