People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

I wonder what Megatron would end up in that context?

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Take another shot Wonko.

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

prime the lost season

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

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

@  Paladin : (18 February 2019 - 06:56 PM)

they also have NOTORIOUSLY poor protection on their servers. do NOT keep a credit card on file there.

@  Telly : (18 February 2019 - 04:48 PM)

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.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  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.

Hollywood Reporter is saying that Pom Klementieff, who appeared in the recent "Oldboy" remake, has been cast in "Guardians of the Galaxy 2".

No word yet on what her role is, but the article says that Marvel was specifically looking for an Asian actress.

Cue the wild random guessing...

Mantis is the most likely choice, given they were specifically looking for an asian actress.

Pretty much.

 

Thrilled with that, if true. Will also accept Phyla-Vell and Moondragon (returned from the dead via the power of one of the Infinity Stones).

Oh an ultra snarky Moondragon would rock but, yeah, it's probably a deadpan Mantis. They need to change color tones though. Too much green. Gamora, Drax, Mantis, Moondragon are all green-ish.

Maybe Moondragon's costume is green but she's kind of human colored.

I've seen and heard Gunn mention a few times that he plans to keep Quill as the only human, so Mantis would be a very good guess. But who knows!

Well, Drax isn't human and doesn't seem like he ever was, so they could simply make her Drax's daughter who Thanos killed.

But it's also totally a non-issue since she's obviously Mantis.

 

That being said, who would be a good Moondragon? Olivia Wilde would be good, but rumor has it she's Marvel's top choice for Captain Marvel now.

Technically Mantis is a half-Vietnamese, half-German Metahuman (Enhanced by a religious sect of Kree) from Earth, but I doubt that will be in the movie.

Yeah, if we can just decide Drax is an alien than we can do that with anyone else.

Oh, wow. See, I just always assumed from the "Celestial Madonna" thing that she wasn't from Earth. I never did find her early stuff to read, but I love her costume from back then.

And yeah, if Drax is no longer Arthur Douglas, then all bets are off and anyone can be from anywhere.

"Celestial" is an old, racist term for Asian people, as well.

I'm absolutely down for Kurt Russell joining the MCU. And I'm also looking forward to caring about Mantis for the first time ever.

 

 

"Celestial" is an old, racist term for Asian people, as well.

 

 

I was half-convinced Deadwood made that term up. It's by far the nicest-sounding racist insult I've ever heard.

Stallone was seeing leaving a hotel where cast members are staying... with a script in his hand.

 

This has led to speculation that Stallone might now somehow be involved in the filming.
