*rescue, though

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 04:47 PM)

Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

@  Robowang : (23 May 2017 - 10:32 AM)

mmm. That's my favorite dish.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 10:06 AM)

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2017 - 05:08 AM)

I'll wait for the sequel series Dragon Whole.

@  Maruten : (23 May 2017 - 04:26 AM)

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

Here's the information on the (SG) "Autobot Elite Guard"

 

The ELITE GUARD is a small contingent of Autobot soldiers who have filled the power vacuum left by the destruction of the "Wreckers." While the Wreckers were a group of mercenaries and assorted malcontents, the Elite Guard are professional soldiers who follow the orders of their leader, THUNDERCLASH, unswervingly.

 

That page also has some "designer's notes," suggesting that SG Thunderclash was intentionally given a "boring" color scheme to contrast with the colors of the BotCon toy. He was given a personality based on Erwin Rommel.

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.

This might seem like an odd request, but does anyone have the Transforce 2000 magazine that featured an interview with Simon Furman in it?

 

And did any other Transforce magazines have interviews with Furman in them?

It's been a long time since I've looked at those - they'll be in my comic box back at me parents' house somewhere, but if I get time I'll try and dig them out. I can't see scans hurting now, all these years later.

I'd very much appreciate it. :thumbsup

 

From the second-hand comments made about that interview in ATT posts dating back to 2000-2001, that interview should aid me in my doing research for production information on Furman's old "Reaching the Omega Point" storyline, whose four prose stories I'm still presently trying to create individual Wiki articles for.

I need help finding a short video clip of the BotCon 1998 script reading that was included in the Highlights Video (VHS) of that year's convention.

 

The clip is a fuzzy-quality recording of brief snippits from the script reading, featuring (IIRC) at least Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil, Susan Blu, and David Kaye all visible onstage, and one of the snippits had the scene where Scott McNeil yelled the "Brawn is DEAD!" joke.

 

I thought I had watched this on YouTube recently, but I can't seem to find it on there again. I tried searching on Dailymotion, but that also turned up nothing.

Is there any possibility that someone could share download options for the script readings for OTFCC 2003/2004 and Botcon 2016 again? The previous posted links in this topic are broken now...

 

Also, is the "Stunticon Job" adaptation still unfindable?

Here's all that I have:

 

Bee in the City 2
https://dl.dropboxus...tricBugaloo.doc

 

Return of Blurr

https://dl.dropboxus...t_reading_4.doc

 

Also while looking for those I came across some more unused stuff. Well, the timeline was used to keep story elements straight, but it was never published nor all the events made reference to.

 

Wingsverse Constructicons Timeline:
https://dl.dropboxus...structicons.doc

 

Two page pre-BotCon 2012 comic script in which Megatron was responsible for halving Gigatron (Instead of Straxus):

https://dl.dropboxus...24/overlord.doc

 

Shattered Glass Nebulon story proposal, set after Invasion:

https://dl.dropboxus.../SG_masters.doc

 

Some brief attempts at a prose story telling the same events that ended up in Another Light:

https://dl.dropboxus...4/ftm_draft.doc

https://dl.dropboxus...catastrophe.doc

https://dl.dropboxus...inal_battle.doc

 

Also, I would love to see these documents coming back again...
