Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Love the color on him as I liked MP-9's color but this is even more bright magenta goodness.

Also amazing how close the size of the new figure looks compared to the old figure in car mode (the photo is deceptive) here.

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.

The car mode looks off to me, the nose of the car looks slightly upturned. It certainly doesn't look exactly the same as MP-09. Also, I've seen one review that suggests this guy has clearance issues & getting all its wheels to reach the ground. As well as having some bits that were left inexplicably unpainted.


My FlickR folder...

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

Peaugh elaborated in his reviews that the ground clearance is quite tight, but there's actually a bit of a trick there, in that it takes a bit of effort to get the legs lined up with the car shell so that they tab in perfectly.  If the legs are tabbed, the car rolls just fine.  If you don't lock them in, then the legs drag.

I do wish that they could come up with a transformation that allowed the wheels to be, you know, scaled properly with the rest of the car. The relatively tiny wheels on MP-09 really bothered me and it doesn't look like this one is all that much better at it.

 

Of course this one has that magic going on with the shoulders, so I can probably accept the small wheels a little better.

Also it looks like this guy is very similar to Ironhide in hand -- way better than the stock photos!

I wonder if the proportions would look better if his head was a bit larger. The skinny legs don't look as bad in person. Maybe this will all be fixed in Hot Rod 3.0 in a decade.

My ideal Hot Rod 3.0 would manage to make the entire sides of the car his arms so we don't have this massive kibble problem and fake tail-light cones, and feature the Quintessa shoulder-swap because it's just a more interesting looking transformation.  And somehow make his chest not so flat.

With shoulders, knees and a head that can turn. It'll also have all the joints of the original G1 toy painted on even though it transforms differently, because Takara.

I guess I'm also confused as to why the hood is so damned flat even in car mode.

 

27287593d1332878800-why-so-hard-find-goo

 

There's some curves that that could be used for his chest. 

 

I also really liked how the sides fold away when forming the chest. Increasing the width of the hood and having even more fold back would get him more of a v-shaped chest, no? There would be yellow on each side but that's not a problem at all, I think.

 

Either way, the *profile* of the car is 100% perfect. I love it. I retract my earlier statement about the size of the wheels. Looks great to me!

 

I think I love this guy. Did not see this coming.

I think it could've managed that with a slight curve to it, or perhaps some angularness. Even in that character model there seems to be an implication that it follows the same curvature as the arms/fenders. But I'm having trouble picturing it in both modes.

I am not seeing any curves on that hood in this image.  On the roof, sure, but not on the hood.  That hood is as flat as northern Indiana.
