I don't think it's right to feel indignation at people telling you that Americans might also have feelings and you should consider them before squawking yet more things in the same vein.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Intervening? It's not like much of anything that happens in this box is prompted.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 01:13 AM)

I suppose I would normally feel indignation right about now, but with you I am merely unsurprised that you are intervening in a conversation to express your typical brand of disapproval.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:50 AM)

I'm not super fond of Nevermore's habit of using the Shoutbox to complain about TFW users, but those usually seem to be things he's personally witnessed and not anecdotes that he only has confirmation bias to backup, so I can believe he isn't just being smug.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:47 AM)

Amusing? Don't try to pretend you aren't being selective by picking things that support a narrative you're building.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:46 AM)

Shield Agent: this and the previous anecdote didn't sound like you have any reason to believe them beyond confirmation bias, so bringing up these things compulsively achieves nothing beyond making you look smug.

@  fourteenwings : (24 March 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Well I guess Fortnite sounds cool? Maybe it made more sense before the gameplay started to focus on the Battle Royale bit?

@  fourteenwings : (24 March 2019 - 12:22 AM)

To be fair this is only a few days after your very comprehensive thing about St. Patrick's Day. Oh also I guess that thing about the Estonian currency exchange so that's like three entire "Americans!" squawks this week.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:22 AM)

Not that Nitefort is any more sensible obviously.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:21 AM)

I tend to forget that it's called Fortnite because my 3yo calls it "Nitefort" so that's how my whole family refers to it.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:21 AM)

I assume the name is derived from the fact that one can build forts? But the nite part is a stretch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 12:17 AM)

Hence I thought it would be an amusing anecdote to share as I am not a gamer, but other pop culture-invested people here probably would be, and thus perhaps they would have different relevant experience to share.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 12:16 AM)

In fact before now I did not feel "superior" for knowing the word "fortnight" because I was raised to believe it was a rare but standard term.

@  Copper Bezel : (23 March 2019 - 10:33 PM)

Eh, it's not a common word in the US, so ... like I sincerely hope no one's feeling superior about it but I wouldn't assume.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 March 2019 - 09:59 PM)

Shield Agent: What is up with your compulsion to bring up every anecdote that supports your superiority complex towards Americans?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 March 2019 - 09:22 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 March 2019 - 09:11 PM)

Interesting. I have just been informed by several Britons and Australians that since the debut of Fortnite, they have encountered Yanks who do not believe that "fortnight" is a real word.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2019 - 04:36 AM)

Having watched the full decade's' worth of episodes during the last 4 or so weeks, the cult leader Goa'uld was Setesh/"Seth"

@  Pennpenn : (22 March 2019 - 04:00 AM)

I missed a whole bunch of stuff in the Squawkbox. Huh. It's been a long week.

@  Pennpenn : (22 March 2019 - 03:52 AM)

That or Old Testament God with his whole nuking cities, random plagues, brutal pogroms, absurd set ups to test followers faiths, etc etc as a very not rogue Goa'uld.

@  Pennpenn : (22 March 2019 - 03:48 AM)

1) Spite. 2) I'm fairly sure at least one episode did actually have a Goa'uld who'd be hiding out on Earth since the rebellion and had been host swapping and running cults, 3) mostly yeah spiteful contrivance to see Christain groups lose their collective shit.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2019 - 02:49 AM)

If you don't take paypal, and the item isn't a local pickup (in which case Cash is acceptable), I'm pretty sure you need to have some alternative credit card processor you're able to take payment through

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2019 - 02:48 AM)

Technically eBay doesn't own Paypal anymore, but even so I haven't seen an auction in years that didn't take Paypal as a form of payment.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 March 2019 - 11:01 PM)

I was gonna ask "aren't eBay and Paypal basically the same people" but turns out that hasn't been true for a while.

@  Trpodeca : (21 March 2019 - 07:41 PM)

I think the issue is that we paid with Paypal, but they don't accept Paypal.

@  Trpodeca : (21 March 2019 - 07:40 PM)

I don't think so.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 March 2019 - 07:30 PM)

Can you pay via paypal?

@  Trpodeca : (21 March 2019 - 07:25 PM)

I think we can't transfer the money into Euros. So that's unfortunate.

@  Trpodeca : (21 March 2019 - 07:21 PM)

Well we bought it, but the payment doesn't seem to have gone through.

@  Nevermore : (21 March 2019 - 06:56 PM)

What problem?

@  Trpodeca : (21 March 2019 - 03:44 PM)

Well that's unfortunate, the German comic we're missing is on ebay, and we bought it but seem to have run into a problem.

@  MidnightFox : (21 March 2019 - 11:18 AM)

If anything in context to the show, Jesus would most likely have been a human nearing ascension. We have various examples of near ascension humans exhibiting the same abilities as miracles attributed to Jesus.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 March 2019 - 09:42 AM)

Yeah, but neither the russians or the US military shared any information about the goa'uld to the public. And there was more than likely enough devout in both regimes that they wouldn't have accepted that as a possible answer anyway.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 March 2019 - 09:25 AM)

Jesus would not have been a Goa'uld, he would have been an ancient ascendant :p

@  MidnightFox : (21 March 2019 - 09:20 AM)

Well, d'uh. But it also made sense within context of the series even with actual ancient alien theorists connecting everything in every religion to aliens.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 March 2019 - 09:18 AM)

More to the point: you don't piss off the bulk of the potential demographic by outright stating that even the supposedly one good god was really just a snake in your head.

@  MidnightFox : (21 March 2019 - 08:15 AM)

Why would they? The show was very clear about the Goa'uld not knowing what happened on Earth after the rebellion, which happened way before the advent of Christianity.

@  Pennpenn : (21 March 2019 - 02:16 AM)

To be honest they did ignore big chunks of the stuff from the movie. Also never had the balls to portray Jesus as a rogue Goa'uld (yeah yeah I know shut up).

@  Echowarrior : (20 March 2019 - 08:57 PM)

The original Stargate movie was okay for what it was. SG1 was a decent show that probably lasted too long. Atlantis was a decent show that could've lasted a little longer. Universe...gah. There were exactly two characters on that show that I liked, and neither was enough to help it in my mind.

@  Xellos : (20 March 2019 - 04:05 PM)

I got into SG1 right as season 8 ended. The Stargates were the last shows that I would make sure to watch every week. Since Universe ended, I really have not been addicted to any live action series.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 03:12 PM)

The concept of the film had enormous potential, and the rest was literally writers one upping each other when they didn't know if they were going to get renewed.

...which are low res as hell.

 

Brawl looks even browner than his Hasbro release, but hey he's got a red mouthplate that's cool. And Vortex looks neat too, but it's a bit hard to see at this scale (and with that red text sitting over it...) Onslaught looks like he's trying to do too many things at once, unfortunately, Blast Off's still a Write Off and Swindle has painted hubcaps. Oh, and the Combiner feet are Brawl/Swindle coloured.

Gonna have to wait for clearer pictures on these guys, I think, but from what I can see here:

  • Onslaught would be perfect without the grey paint on his legs
  • Colours on Vortex are unexpected but neat
  • That's a nice shade of orange-brown on Blast Off, and it'll probably help to distinguish him from Space Harrier
  • Swindle looks completely average
  • Brawl being brown is kind of hilarious, given how many people were insisting that "Takara will give us the green Brawl that we deserve"

Soooo... undecided? It'll basically come down to how much money I have when Victorion, Grand Galvatron and Bruticus come out which of them I get.

These look amazing!
 
Yellow and green feet, blue helmet & silver face on Onslaught, silver Bruticus torso with Blast Off colored chest plate, despite being cartoon accurate Onslaught still has his chest colored in like the toy (they didn't ignore that fact and colored it any way), red faced Brawl (I always saw it more as maroon), gray & blue Vortex, purple on Swindle's alt mode. 
 
Beautiful!
 
I'm so glad that we have two versions of almost everything, as it makes me appreciate when we get something like this all the more.
 
http://www.robotking...m/ttmeuw07.html
 
Vortex has a pretty light silver face as does Swindle.  You can also see Vortex's sporting a multi-colored combiner peg like Zombie War Breakdown.  Top is gray and the bottom is metallic blue.  Blast Off has the crest paint lilac and his eyes gray.  :D

Not that this is a big deal because 90% of people won't be displaying him this way, but how much is Onslaught's vehicle mode is going to suffer as a result of the Blast-off colored combiner chest?   It's pretty amazing what they've managed to do with Onslaught to achieve 2 different color schemes.  And Brawl is half-NOT-green in robot mode anyway, so I can deal...with that now. All I can hear in my head right now is [Vortex speaking in] Onslaught's voice: "Combaticons!  Transform to BROO-TEE-KUSS!"

I wouldn't be surprised if Swindle does the same as Vortex with his peg.  Top blue (if they try to mirror the window color) and bottom purple.

This is looking great so far - what I can make out of it, that is.  It's too hard on my eyes to try and see all of the little details you guys are talking about, but I am really loving the color schemes and the fact that the combiner feet are designed to match their respective bots.  I especially like what they've done with Vortex's colors and am still loving the quad-peller.  :thumbsup

 

Edit:  The news article on the front page mentioned a new/different gun for Swindle.  I really don't see that in any pics.  Where is it?

A little disappointed with the colored feet since that messes with the whole switcharoo concept (Transformers: Switcharoo City!) but I have to admit it looks really nice. They sure nailed the cartoon accuracy thing. Glad I preordered it.

Yup. The top half is light blue to be part of his windscreen. And the bottom half is purple to be his purple belly from the toon.

Not liking those color coded feet, and sadly Bruticus will end up having blue thighs if you do the thigh rotation.

Other than that, it looks good so far.

I wonder if the G1 prototype of Bruticus's chest plate was colored like Blast off, or if it was just someone imagining Blast Off's wings become the chest or something.  Or if pre-TF Diaclone Bruticus' chest was colored similar to whatever color Blast Off was (if such an unseen deco ever existed)

The Blast-off colored chest plate looks nice. I kinda want the gray on Onslaught's legs to be a lighter shade, but glad to see it's there. The colored feet is a cool detail I hadn't imagined.

 

I guess I just don't get the Brawl/green/brown issue.... Blast-off is brown. Compare Brawl to him, that's not the same color. Brawl's got a bit of a green hue to him. 

 

For robot mode, the 'wings' on the Bruticus chest plate fold up, right? In vehicle mode pics I've always seen them folded down. If they can fold up, then the underside could be painted a different color to help out Onslaught's vehicle mode colors a bit more.

 

Still, his vehicle mode should be better than Hasbro's. The Blast-off colors are closer to Onslaught's color that's missing from the Hasbro gray version, plus Hasbro's vehicle mode for him is nearly devoid of any paint.
