Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

Maxi, provigo, loblaws.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2019 - 09:42 PM)

Which store brand is it?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I need to buy more "no name" foods. This pizza is freaking awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (20 May 2019 - 11:16 AM)

SEND THE BOOKS!!

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

Grandfather once said to me, "I'm going upstairs and hug your grandma."

@  Sabrblade : (18 May 2019 - 07:08 PM)

Mama always said that you can tell a lot 'bout a person from 'is shoes...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 May 2019 - 03:54 PM)

Life is like a box of chocolates. Stay out of the sun or melt into a pile of gross slop.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

... Yes, it is!

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2019 - 09:48 AM)

Life's a fillet of fish!

Here's my relatively meager collection, started in about 2002 when I got back into Transformers as a result of Armada. As the title says, I focused mostly on Starscream over the last 14 years, but when my wife got into TF via MTMTE, we started accumulating a few of the female TFs, too. Toss in the odd Legends figure and we get the motley that is our collection.

First up are the Leader/Masterpiece-type 'screamers adorning the top of the shelf (that's US Masterpiece V1 transformed on the right there). Below are Strongarm, a Legends OP, Windblade, CW Rodimus, Chromia, Prime Hyperspeed Wheeljack, and Legends (CW) Starscream w/Waspinator, Skywarp, and Thundercracker. The poor-man's seeker collection! Also behind Windblade and Chromia is a still-in-box Alternators Skywarp; I need a good place to display him in car mode.

Up next is likely my favorite version, the G1 kind, with Commemorative Edition Starscream leading the pack on the far left. There's a fair bit of merchandise here, including the multi-part Kreon to the left of the Armada Starscream, imports of the Revoltech, Takara "WFC", Q-Transformer, and Alternity Starscreams, some non-Starscream Kreons atop the Mighty Mugs box, and the plane for Action Master Starscream at the far end. I brought it from my parents' house when I was down there last; sadly, AM Starscream seems to be gone.

Next shelf down is Armada Starscream. There's a bit of merchandise missing which is in storage in Boston, but in the meantime I have most of the domestic releases of the figure. The "Heroes of Cybertron"-styled figure and Voyager-class Cyberton Starscreams are, of course, Takara imports.

On the fourth shelf is my Movie Starscream collection. It may surprise some of you to know that Hasbro really pushed for merchandising for its films. It's true. Anyways, I have MOST of his domestic figures here; I briefly entertained the idea of trying my hand at some of the Takara exclusives, but that one Red Starscream is so garish I decided against it. Among the missing items are various repaints (mostly of the Legends class figures, but I'm also missing some of the ROTF Voyager redecos and one or two of the first Movie mold), along with a few merch items like the Gravity Bots and Activators.. Below are my Animated and Prime collection. Surprisingly, Starscream had very little Animated stuff for me to get; for a while I wanted to get all the clones, but they weren't all released in the same size so screw it. I missed a few key guys in the Prime lineup, especially his Voyager class incarnation and the first Legends one, but otherwise I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Rounding things out is my current crown jewel, the Hasbro V2 Masterpiece figure. I ended up paying probably a bit more than I should have for him, but again, I consider him to be the best figure of the lot so far. Here he is bravely (?) guarding the lightswitch for our electric fireplace. What an asset to the Decepticon cause. Not shown to the left are a bunch of Sailor Moon Figuarts figures and some amiibos.

 

And that's that. Among the figures I would LOVE to add to this are some version of CW Devastator, Victorion, and Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron (mostly for the Starscream figure). I honestly wouldn't mind some other representation of him in "Ghost" form. I'd love to have the MP one, but I'd settle for the Classics mold or even the WFC one. Barring that, I'm pretty satisfied with my collection, and dont' see myself necessarily hunting down any of the older figures (unless, of course, I happen to run across a Pretenders or Machine Wars Starscream somewhere for like 5 bucks, then yes please).

 

Thanks for reading. And, as Starscream would say, *whine b*tch moan complain*
