Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Calling Super Saiyan God retreading because it's another color change sounds kind of inaccurate. Didn't it work pretty differently from the other powerups?

Super Saiyan God is like the exact opposite of how Toei created power ups work and actually creates some nice character drama for Goku.

End of the day: He powers up, and his hair is a different color. Of course they had to find some way to have drama, else they really wouldn't have had much of a movie.

I have avoided the movies, except a couple, because to me they go against the show. What I like about the show is the steadily built continuity. When you decide to make a movie about a big, big event and plunk it down somewhere in the middle and apparently it has no repercussions that were worth mentioning the first time around, what is that? You have to make a story where things seem dramatic, but everything has to be status quo at the end.

If they invent a bunch of new powers and crazy changes in this series, someone will have to answer why we didn't see them in the final episode of DBZ and DBGT. For the latter, maybe they've decided to replace it. I can live with that. What about the former?

At least as far as Goku goes, it's not so out of left field for him to say "I guess I could've transformed into Super Saiyan 53, but then it wouldn't have been a fun fight."

The recent movies have the original author's involvement and take place after the end of Z rather than between random episodes. Don't know what this means for GT.

I hope at some point Goku, and maybe Vegeta, get so powerful that they're now allowed to fight on Earth anymore.

I think that would be a cool way to get the focus off of them.

What I can't figure out is why the Saiyans, who were known for their ruthlessness, even have a transformation that requires not one, but six, good-hearted Saiyans to unlock.  Unless we're supposed to believe that the Saiyans had vastly different personalities in their early history.

 

At least as far as Goku goes, it's not so out of left field for him to say "I guess I could've transformed into Super Saiyan 53, but then it wouldn't have been a fun fight."

 

This is the same Goku that could have killed Buu right out of the gate with his Super Saiyan 3 form, but didn't because he wanted Goten and Trunks to do it.  Never mind the fact that it would have prevented nearly every single human getting murdered by Super Buu, and his family and friends getting eaten by him.

 

Goku might as well be the poster boy for Idiot Shonen Hero.

I don't think it is set after Goku and Uub went off to train, is it? Weren't they gone for the entire time from the last episode of DBZ until GT?

Might be after Buu's defeat but before the Martial Arts Tournament with Uub. Don't see why anything that happens in-between would need mentioning then, though.

Frieza's golden super mode is perfect, I say. It's effectively him being a direct answer to a super saiyan, the thing that defeated him.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
