We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

Well, this isn't the last wave, so I wouldn't worry about that.

EDIT: Ninja'd. To be specific, we still have one more wave of everything to be revealed (although we've seen Slugslinger already for the last Deluxe wave).

Windblade continues to be amazing. She also continues to make me wish I held off on her first Hasbro and Takara releases.

At this rate she'll be in the next live action movie.

Apparently he's made some statements to the effect of "I'm not doing girl Transformers".

 

Dunno why so many people think there's a need to explain why girl robots exist. Might as well explain why Drift is Japanese or Hound is fat.

 

Movieverse Windblade is probably gonna be a "Born Sexy Yesterday" who kisses Bumblebee or whatever trope people were complaining about when Samurai Jack got a girlfriend.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Early fiction using toy designs isn't quite what I was talking about. Ironhide *as a general character* has been retconned away from there, while Chewbacca's original design's been reused for Zeb in Rebels. I want to see those goofy robits reurposed as new guys now.

He also said "no Dinobots" and we all saw how that turned out.

My Walmarts mostly didn't seem to get a ton of wave 1 in, which gave me hope for promptness in later waves there...

 

...and then they got those big aisle displays full of wave 1. Oh well.

Wheeljack sort of did have long/big arms back in G1 in both the cartoon and comic, allowing for variations in animation and art. Not as massive as his toy but yeah

Wheeljack_G1_1_MTMTE1_1276723714.jpg

(he also apparently had stubby legs and a huge-ass chest lol)


And of course this feature was homage by another iconic Wheeljack

PrimeWheeljack-HowToDraw.jpg
wheeljack2.jpg
PrimeRIDtoy-WheeljackDeluxe.jpg


So I guess any guy who wants a short-armed Wheeljack really doesn't know anything about Transformers? And is probably one of those "fake geewuner boys" pretending to like them just cuz he likes the attention he gets from all the girls who actually do know about Transformers~

Looking at Unicron.com's screenshots, there's quite a few where his arms don't reach further down relative to his body than anybody else's, so I'm not sure if that's the intention.

Not only that, but he explicitly said that he kept them out of the first movie because he felt he'd have to "explain" female TFs. Then during ROTF's development he decided "no, I really don't" and so he included them. While it's not impossible that Bay would go back on that (as he has with many other elements of the movies), the biggest hurdle has already been cleared.

 

That said, movie Windblade would probably end up as a fanboat that floated around on the fan instead of legs and after having one line would unceremoniously die by having her upper body shoved through the fan during a fight with Bonecrusher who came back because reasons. :p

I think he should use the "knight" Windblade concept art and have her as a knight who's been hidden on Earth for thousands of years.

Not that he would, but...
