speaking of geese, saw some videos for this game on the Switch: https://www.goose.game/

They aren't all cranky... sure, it's hard to find one in a good mood, but still.

@  unluckiness : (21 September 2019 - 09:12 AM)

Cranky geese is a hell of a tautology

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2019 - 09:07 AM)

... that's like the third flock of geese this morning. Do those cranky bitches know something I should know?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 September 2019 - 06:26 AM)

Isn't there a thread for that?

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2019 - 05:41 AM)

Also, she pronounces her own name "Zuh-see".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I think I'd read a while back she was born in Berlin

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 September 2019 - 03:04 PM)

I thought Zazie Beetz was really fantastic in Deadpool 2. Really looking forward to seeing her in Joker.

@  Liege : (20 September 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Any sightings of Ratchet at U.S. Walgreens yet? A couple of stores around me have recently restocked their toy aisles but no Ratchets yet at those ones.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:54 AM)

You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:14 PM)

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

I'll be honest the only way I'm buying that Scourge is if I decide I like the Titanmaster gimmick so much that I want every little head guy to mix and match. It's not the worst thing ever, but the Gen version just looks better in pretty much every way aesthetics wise.

ZacWilliam, that said I can see myself buying it for the head really. We'll see...

Pretty much where I'm at with the line.

 

For the larger figures, I'm pretty much only in it for the ones that were actually Headmasters in G1 (although I'll get PMOP and might get Galvatron and Alpha Trion for those characters regardless of gimmick). But I could EASILY see myself becoming enamored with the mini-figs and their interactions with the larger figures as vehicles and bases.

Episode 119
Rumors for 7/30/2015

1. Blaster is Leader Class.
2. Soundwave is Leader Class.
3. Leader Class Optimus Prime's head will turn into a Ginrai/High-Q. No word on whether it has a base mode or Roller, but Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus can do a base mode, so it's likely.
4. It looks like the Headmasters will fit on Generations Voyager Brainstorm.
5. It does not look like Cerebros will have a vehicle mode.
6. Titans Return will be very season 3/4 and The Rebirth centric. Think twice before buying third party Headmasters. (they might be Voyager size).
7. Headmasters will all come with a small accessory/partner who is a vehicle for the Autobots or a creature for the Decepticons, that the head can connect to. These accessories have 5mm pegs, for possible weapon modes.
8. For the Deluxes in Titan Wars, expect the 1986 movie robots in "2005" Cybertronian alt modes, like Blurr, Hot Rod and Kup.

 

Apparently Kup and Hot Rod were mentioned in one of the podcasts and went unreported (?) until now. 

 

Obviously people assumed a new Hot Rod was coming based on the Junkion set.

I still think that choosing to do the Movie characters as Headmsters is a bad idea. Pretty much all of them have head shapes or protrusions incompatible with the general Headmaster "fold into a cube" transformation unless they have helmets to complete the look like the bigger toys.

Kup could work as a Headmaster.  Hot Rod (either IDW or Movie) would be more difficult.

 

Though they did round Brainstorm's head up quite a bit.

 

Am I the only one who finds it funny that Chromedome has the better (IMO) toy colors for his head rather than the IDW colors?  Especially when the TFSS version originally had the toy colors (while not IDW accurate surely are the more stand out choice) and were then changed due to fan demand.  :D

 

As for why I like the original head colors better it's because the helmet, face, and eyes don't end up all blended in together.  :doh

I hope that the Cyclone Minicons show Hasbro that they can make robots out of near-spheroid shapes IF they actually plan a Hot Rod.

Because a square-headed Hot Rod would be...  :puke

I do wonder if Hot Rod will be full on Movie like Blurr and Scourge or if he'll be IDW based like Chromedome.

 

Or even possibly toy based like Hardhead.

 

We have the Masterpiece coming up, but we haven't gotten a really good Movie or IDW style Hot Rod figure (the Classics one hasn't aged that well) so I could see them going either way.

I'd imagine that the Horrocons, being triple changers, would likely be voyagers rather then deluxe, and we've not see too many voyagers for the line yet. I half expect Galvatron to be remolded into one of them.
