Everything is f i n e

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 January 2021 - 08:30 AM)

Everything's okay until it isn't. That's life.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 08:12 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

That's not true. An adult man is in control of the White House now.

@  repowers : (19 January 2021 - 03:18 PM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

Unreleased G2 Sandstorm Prototype Selling Online

A prototype of the unreleased Generation 2 toy Sandstorm is selling on auction site Taobao.  This redeco of the G1 seeker mold was long thought to be a Ramjet redeco and more recently was revealed to have been intended to be a new character.  This is a character I personally hadn't been aware of, so this is exciting!  But it's not $3073 of exciting (the price) - at least not for me.  Is it for you?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I have him as Shattered Glass Sandstorm who crossed over to the positive universe and reformatted himself to become a member of Battle Gaia.

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm. As for characterisation... I got nothing.

Black Death Starscream is totally the same character as Robotmasters Black Starscream, and a counterpart of Starscream Clone Black Version, though. ("Nightfall", perhaps?)

If I could drop the name "Sandstorm", he would be a non-movie Breakaway who defected from the Decepticon Seekers.

An entry of Ask Vector Prime featured him! Didn't give any personality but placed him in his reality's battle of Sherman Dam.

Don't you mean "Jungle Attack" Starscream on that last one?

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

I say Hasbro should take the CW Starscream mold, and start from the back of the line. Give us Sandstorm, Black Death Starscream, sky blue Ramjet, jungle Ramjet, and Redwing, and then get around to the Rainmakers and the 1984/1985 toys.

Eh, as much as I like Seekers, I feel that Seekers are best a deluxe or voyager size, not leader. But I suppose the leader class is rather fitting of High Chancellor Starscream of the Republic of Cybertron in IDW G1.

What I think would be more fitting from the Generations Jetfire mold is Skyquake/Scrash. With regard to that though, I guess the Generations Jetfire mold would also be good for an update of Machine Wars Starscream.

My headcanon is that the sky blue/navy blue Ramjet deco represents both a new G1 Seeker and the Shattered Glass version of Ramjet.

 

Yeah, I will agree that toy being Shattered Glass Ramjet's color scheme, but I would object to making it a new G1 seeker.

 

Yeah, no. Unless REALLY desperate for ideas, those wouldn't have happened

 

I would like to think you're joking, as we just got Oilmaster, Sergeant Hound and General Optimus Prime.

 

I do like the idea of Generations Blitzwing as a combination of this Sandstorm and Battle Gaia Sandstorm.

 

Yeah, that's what I want, but from Doubledealer or with a new head. He would have different insignias on each of his modes. SG Decepticon insignia in robot mode, G1 Decepticon insignia in tank mode (with the words "BATTLE GAIA" visible to reinforce the point) and G2 Decepticon insignia in jet mode.
