@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

Cardboard and plastic.

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

Goodbyes suck. But they make you appreciate the hellos all the more.

That's... actually really beautiful, Caldwin. It works a broader sense than initially seems to; bad things make you appreciate the good more. You could even say it's a "yin and yang" "one cannot exist without the other" sort of thing. Very deep.

So, on the way out of Arizona, we stopped at Tombstone. I found it to be a bit too commercialized to be enjoyable for the most part. However, I took this picture while I was there:

Now, don't get me wrong, the graves are cool, but they're not the reason I took the picture. It was the way you could see buildings off in the distance, and then the mountains past them, that really caught my attention. This picture doesn't even begin to do it justice. You could see each individual building, and then you could see the grass continue past the town and up to the mountains. It was so beautiful.

So there was a video game review assigned in my video game design class a little while back. (Towards the beginning of March, I think; I'm not sure beyond that.) I've been under the assumption that it was due sometime in April, but I checked with one of my classmates today, just to confirm what I already knew, but it turns out I've been wrong this whole time and it's actually due on March 31st.

The due date's never been changed at any point since the project was originally assigned, so I guess I'm just hugging stupid and remembered it wrong; there's not really anyone or anything to blame. I'm glad I checked with my classmate when I did; I should still be able to get a decent project finished between then and now. I was kinda hoping I would be able to finish Earthbound before I did the review over it, but I've got a good enough grasp on all aspects of it that I could do it right now.

Like, it's not the end of the world or anything, but it's a bit of a punch to the gut in a week that's delivered a good one or two of those already, and the cumulative effect of them all is really disheartening.

Eek. I'm sorry, Foffy. Seems like it might just be this time in the semester, just after spring break and things start to get a little hardcore for everyone.

Yeah, this is not a fun time by any measure. My animation project is just so breathtakingly hugged that I'm actually kind of looking forward to the due date this Friday when I'm forced to turn in whatever unfinished garbage I've managed to get done and get a failing grade, because at least I won't have to look at it anymore.

The worst part of working on my animation project is that the culmination of a lot of sub-par work that I was nevertheless really proud of because I wasn't expecting to be able to accomplish anything at all. And then just as I started to have some actual enthusiasm for the work I was doing, all those little mistakes and imperfections started adding up and the whole thing just crashed and burned. I know I should be spending all the time and effort that I can trying to make up for how behind I am on the whole thing, but honestly every moment I spend working on it makes me more miserable. I just wanna set fire to it all and not have to touch it ever again.

Yeah, I really know that feeling. It's almost like seeing just a glimpse of the potential of something right at the end - but keep in mind that the whole point in education is that you get to keep what you learned from that experience. If it's a kind of project you want to pursue, you'll have other, better chances at it, and you know what pitfalls to avoid now. That doesn't make finishing this practice run any more fun or likely rewarding, I know. It doesn't sound like you have time to refactor the bits you like into something that doesn't give you 'Nam flashbacks, which really just leaves pushing through and getting something delivered. But try and think about those things you've done and are doing with it that you're proud of and the fact that you're going to have been successful in those aspects. That's much closer to the product you want than when you started, and you take that experience into the next challenge.

Unrelated: Thoughts?

The idea of printing a sheep brings to mind the episide of Gravity Falls with the copy machine that made clones. If you're suggesting that I clone myself, I'm afraid I'll have to decline; I've always found one of me to be just the right amount.

(Serious mode; re: failure and such: Thank you for conversing with me about this. I try to avoid burdening other people with my problems whenever possible, but sometimes I need someone to talk to, and I appreciate you being here for me when I need you.)

Glad if anything I said helped. I can understand the urge not to drag people into your problems, because I feel that a lot of the time too, but there's nothing wrong with sharing your frustrations and getting some support. We do a lot of that in Mayhem, after all, and it's a healthy thing. = ] It wouldn't be fair for anyone to expect you to be positive and perfect all the time, and people appreciate the honesty, too. And you're a big support to a lot of us yourself, you know.
