You'd be a banker.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 August 2017 - 12:20 PM)

What if you paid your job but they don't love you?

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 08:01 PM)

...crap, never mind, enough searching and I turned it up. I am convinced this would not have happened without asking.

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 07:43 PM)

Forgive me for being the last one aboard the bus that came and went after the previous bus... but can anyone direct me to the comic based on UW Megatronia?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 04:36 PM)

I'll refer to Simon Furman's work on Dreamwave.

@  OrionPax44 : (16 August 2017 - 04:28 PM)

How bout if you love your job but they don't pay you?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 02:31 PM)

It doesn't feel like work when you love your job!

@  2017 : (16 August 2017 - 08:24 AM)

Why do you want to remove it? Just in the way or something?

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2017 - 03:42 AM)

I wonder if there's any way to remove Destiny 2 from the Battlenet launcher entirely?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 August 2017 - 01:55 PM)

Cause they wanna slice your head off but irritation is all they can pull off.

@  Benbot : (15 August 2017 - 10:59 AM)

YES

My wife has that ability to bring up a bill or something the second story starts. Couldn't have been during the silent loading screen either.

@  Noideaforaname : (13 August 2017 - 11:59 AM)

God yes. Nothing like spending three hours collecting items, then the instant you get back to the story LET'S ALL SHOUT ABOUT OUR NEW SOCKS! THEY'RE BLUE!!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 August 2017 - 09:12 AM)

I still say ALL games should have a Subtitled option.. Since when I play in the family room it seems people want to talk EVERY SINGLE cut scene.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 AM)

You can usually adjust that in the Settings Menu.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2017 - 07:58 AM)

It used to (on the TV I had in my room growing up, for one).

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2017 - 02:42 AM)

When you mute your tv, it should automatically display closed captioning.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 August 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Hmmm...Right Stuf was asked about the Brave series at Otakon 2017 a little bit ago..."They'll look into it" Dare to hope?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 August 2017 - 06:51 PM)

It's one button, how hard could it be? :D

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 August 2017 - 05:12 PM)

Oh god...iMovie is SO much more complicated than I thought...

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:54 PM)

Even TV Tropes admits that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 04:48 PM)

Because TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2017 - 04:29 PM)

TVTropes is a useful resource. Why is it that people on other sites make fun of using TVTropes terminology?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 August 2017 - 04:21 PM)

The TVTropes page even specifically mentions that it's a wrestling term.

@  JasperGunner... : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

I thought it was a wrestling term

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

"Heel-face-turn"? Did you just use a TVTropes term?

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:52 PM)

So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Where has this plot been done before:

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 01:52 PM)

Until you get the taxes for it.

@  Evac : (12 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

But $69,999 cars are fine

@  Bass X0 : (12 August 2017 - 05:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2017 - 09:25 PM)

Okay, those were pretty awesome. Keep up the good work, man.

@  Arazyr : (10 August 2017 - 07:03 PM)

@  Evac : (10 August 2017 - 02:13 PM)

I think they both sound like Mr. Burns

@  Bass X0 : (10 August 2017 - 02:03 PM)

In your opinion, does Starscream sound like Cobra Commander, or does Cobra Commander sound like Starscream? (Yes, I know they're the same voice actor)

@  Diecast : (10 August 2017 - 01:28 PM)

MASK spiritual successor Vor-Tech had that intelligent car, right? Have a Transformer interact with something like that.

Also, wanted to throw in there your idea of the Decepti-sister idols Soundwave and Space Case, though its a shame it never got published, but hopefully it will someday in some way, shape, or form.

Speaking of which.

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.

Who would have access to the BotCon 2013 Customization Class Handbook? Within it is contained an Interlude featuring a bit of fiction for the Blastcharge Strika Drones, such as the notion that Strika has at least nine of these drones under her command, as well as this pic:

 

Blastcharge-Strika-Drones.jpg

 

And did any other BotCon's Custominzation Class Handbooks contain similar bits of fiction like this in them?

 

If no one else who can get their hands on it faster posts by the end of the day, I may be able to check mine. At work at present. I can say that with the other two Custom Class handbooks I have (2009 and 2016), the fiction seemed to be limited to the bios.

 

Shawn Tessmann is the person who put all this together, so if he's around, he'd be the best source.

After a bit of archive searching, I was able to turn up that Shawn went by the name Delta Source (and, I think Delta Source1 was a later name for the same person, but I can't quite confirm that).

 

Unfortunately, it seems hasn't posted here for some time (last summer, as best I can tell). Someone else might be able to provide more current information.

Thanks for the clarification. I was prepared to believe that my research had come up with the wrong name. And, in fact, my research WAS obviously wrong when it came to the matter of Shawn's most recent post.

And did any other BotCon's Custominzation Class Handbooks contain similar bits of fiction like this in them?

 

I've got the BotCon 2013 book in-hand. The picture you posted above is indeed in it (a bit larger than just the portion you see here, but nothing special is revealed in the part you can't already see), as an "Interlude" between the generic instructions (applicable to custom building in general) and the actual assembly instructions (well, the bit telling you what specific paint colors you'll want came first...).

The only other "special" item I can think to mention is that an instruction on the shoulder assembly has a cartoon hand drawn in pointing to it with the words "Sergeant Kup™ says... this pin here? It's just a reinforcement for the shoulder joint... just make sure there's no nasty burrs on the rotator."

 

As I said before, it also includes a bio and tech numbers for the "BLASTCHARGE STRIKA DRONE," in common with other custom class handbooks.

 

The other handbooks I have are:

  • BotCon 2009, with bio info on SG Thunderclash and "Nightclash," a combined form of SG Thunderclash and SG Nightbeat (from the previous year) and some data on the SG Autobot Elite Guard.
  • BotCon 2016, with bios for G1 Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, SG Ratchet, and Medix.

That's all I can find for "fictional" data.

I'm not comfortable scanning the material wholesale without permission from Shawn and/or FunPub (their rights would still exist, even if the club doesn't), but I'm happy to give a bit more information (such as there is) on the SG Elite Guard when I get back to a place where the books are nearby. In the meantime, I imagine that this tiny bit from Thunderclash's bio on the TF Wiki probably covers this reasonably well.
