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)

@  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...

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.

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"...

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)

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.

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.

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)

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.

I admit the designs for the new Saiyan and Freeza forms don't do much for me. They literally look like the palette swap crap you'd see from a fan character. Super Saiyan God I was willing to give a break because it was that or the awful Super Saiyan Four, but 'It's Freeza but he gold now!'....seriously?

A Super Saiyan doesn't go completely gold, the hair stands on end and goes gold plus the eyes go turquoise.

 

Frieza's new form...you could get that if you just spray painted any toy of Freeza since the 90s. It would have been nice to have had something that suggested the body had ascended. This isn't G Gundam where 'gold hue, super mode' works because we're talking about robots.

Save for Vegeta, at least the first Super Saiyan forms had altered hairstyles.  They weren't just a lazy palette swap.

Also I still prefer Super Sayian 4, becuase at least that is an actual form change and not just 'Oh, I'm going to dye my hair RED today to fight the villian!"

I'm mixed because on the one hand I think saying a true Super Saiyan needs to have the tail actually makes sense.

 

On the other hand, I think the SS4 design looks silly and GT never did anything that really sold it as what it was meant to be. I mean going into SS 2 simply powering up shook the entire planet. Super Saiyan 4 is one of the many times GT TELLS us this is beyond anything we've seen before but nothing about it really sells that as the case.

There's basically no reason Goku doesn't break the planet rolling over in his sleep at this point. Trying to make sense out of power levels in this franchise is a fool's errand.

That is the fault of GT, which is filled with faults, and not the actual form itself. There is, imo, nothing wrong with the design and as you say it makes sense. Its just like everything else in GT there was a lot of missteps. GT has some good and interesting ideas, like Trunks being the bored president of CC and looks for adventure. Plenty of fun that could be had there. Pan is a rather fun character, but as mentioned by others limited by the fact they decided she couldn't go Super Sayian. Not having Goten join as they could have really helped sell the threat of Bebi if a fused SS3 Gotenks couldn't deal with them. I think that's generally why the Omega Shenlong arc is the most memorable part of the series, becuase it felt like they were trying to really sell the threat of everything.

I dislike Pan because she's basically a brat. I don't expect her to stay as the little girl who loves her grandpa but in GT she's just the worst kind of teenage brat and when all that attitude isn't even backed up by being able to go at least Super Saiyan...

 

Likewise, I'm not the biggest fan of where they took Goten. I can kind of see why he might have turned out like that but the one note angle of him being a teenage playboy does nothing for me. Especially given how bland his character design was.

Goten probably would have been less one-note if he'd actually been a main character in the series. I like Vegeta's idea "Our kids have gotten soft, so lets throw them into space on a dangerous adventure." It's totally in character for him and is fitting to the world and themes. It would/should have allowed Goten to grow out of the teenage playboy phase with him and Trunks basically having to both grow up more to protect Goku with his significantly decreased power level and Pan with her stupidly limited one when thing started to get serious on the machine planet. And Plus, I feel it would have added more weight to the reveal of SS4 when Goku finally recovers his power level after they get beaten merciliessly; as Gotenks was one of their strongest fighters and his absurd 'make shit up' fighting style meant he was unpredicable and dangerously so. So Gotenks getting owned would have really given a good reason to need an even stronger form to win. ...yes it would kinda mirror the Buu arc even more.. but it would have at least upped the drama as that arc lasted WAY too long and got really boring when it felt like they weren't using their full potential to tell the story.

I wouldn't say that I liked feckless teen Gotenks, but I did like the idea that he'd be the most likely of the group to normalize, having lived most of his life in an era of peace.

I prefer the color changes because... honestly, the physical transformations and spontaneous hair growth fits less with the fact that these are martial artists getting their strength through training and their own spiritual energy. The glowing hair and auras are about the limit of what I would accept from thhat; Frieza getting a color change instead of another transformation likewise shows that he's finally relying on self improvement and not on the fact that he was born a prodigy and his alien race's mysterious awesome powers, and that's finally training to improve himself for once in his life instead of riding on ego and meeting his adversaries on semi equal terms.

I wasn't much of a fan of the archetype when I was younger, but Pan's personality is one of my favorite things in my current watch of GT.

And it's not her fault she didn't go Super Saiyan.

 

You know, I think it's kind of weird we haven't seen any forms with extra arms yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if they go there at some point.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse called them both Frieza Race and Frost Demons, if the Dragon Ball Wiki is to be believed.

 

Personally, I prefer the latter to the former.
