But The Pillows prefer to kill you with Poison Rock'N'Roll

@  Rodimus Supreme : (09 December 2018 - 10:23 AM)

Pillows can kill you softly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 December 2018 - 05:34 AM)

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2018 - 11:11 AM)

I realized the other day that the Planet of Junk/Junkion is the interstellar counterpart to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

Nonsense. Everything changes, the cycle is an illusion.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

I finally got something off my steam wishlist! but managed to add another title immediately: so there was no change. Dang it.

The red plastic holding it together kinda worries me. It's the gummi kind of clear plasstic andmoving it feels uncpomfortably close to tearing.

@  Shrug : (06 December 2018 - 08:17 AM)

Yeah, that happened to mine a few weeks ago. Common problem.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 08:05 AM)

Oh for cryin' out loud, the yellow part on the back hinge of my TR Weirdwolf broke. Bleh. At least the red is still there I guess.

@  unluckiness : (06 December 2018 - 04:59 AM)

Man, I still haven't gotten past Rock Tunnel.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:47 PM)

Mostly. There's a book en route to my mom's house from the UK and I don't know if it'll arrive before January.

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:35 PM)

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

@  fourteenwings : (05 December 2018 - 11:37 AM)

Kamen Rider Dream Drop Distance?

@  Sabrblade : (05 December 2018 - 09:57 AM)

Kamen Rider DDD, or "3D" as it would be pronounced.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 December 2018 - 06:50 AM)

Dedede is secretly a Kamen Rider? You know what? Why not. I honestly wouldn't be suprised!

Hisashi Yuki has tweeted out a group shot of the Unite Warriors Combaticons, all of which appear to be in their final plastic colors.

 

 
The brighter colors do make them damn pretty as a set. (Except for Swindle, who's dead gray plastic bits kinda ruin the look they were going for :p)

They all look pretty darn nice. I still wish that Blast Off had a darker brown color scheme, but I like him well enough not to be too bothered by it.

Only one of these that's doing anything for me is Vortex. (Onslaught's nice, but that silly silver thigh paint...)

If anyone's planning on selling Vortex off separately...

All of them look fantastic.  Swindle's metallic gray could be a touch darker, but at least it's gray and not silver like some photos led some of us to believe.

 

I do wish Takara would have gave Brawl and Onslaught new hand guns since they're other guns end up on their backs.

I gave my Onslaught CW Megs' rifle. It has the "break into two weapons" deal that most CW voyager figures get, and Megs doesn't really need an additional weapon.

  I actually bought a U.S. Swindle so I could give his hand gun to Brawl.  Onslaught is getting the twin guns from U.S. Hot Spot so he can leave his silver guns on his back.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited about an announcement and so completely let down by the reveal.

Onslaught and Brawl are fine, Swindle is eh, but Blast Off and Vortex are incredibly disappointing. I was really, really looking forward to a show-accurate Vortex.

Eh, show accurate or not, that's a very pretty Vortex.  And Onslaught looks better than he has any right.

I'm all for Vortex, since he looks nothing like Alpha Bravo, where as Hasbro's kinda feels more like SG Alpha Bravo then Toy Colors Vortex. .

For all their obsession with show-accuracy, I gotta ask, where in the hell did Blast-Off being caramel-colored come from?

This gets complicated- The gray prototypes Takara showed included Hasbro prototypes, and not just final figures with Takara retoolings, so as far as Swindle's gun is concerned, it was ditched for the final version and wasn't actually a Takara retooling prototype.  If that makes sense.  Sort of a prototype of a prototype situation.

Not minding the colors on Blast Off; the brown is close to Takara Tomy FoC Blast-Off's. Since I have that toy and I am catching up on United and Takara Generations, this will be neat.

This seems to be a pretty good match for the shade used on the UW Blast Off.

Not saying it's the inspiration - cuz toys - but maybe it's just something that has been in Takara's designers' heads for a really long time.
