It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Ah, that's standard across Legends and Gens, isn't it? So there is at least a way to tell them apart loose. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Optimus gets pewed by a time beam, blasting an Orion Pax out of him. They build the Optimus suit out of what's left of the bigger body so Orion can wear it and pretend he's still the chief.

 

 

- Optimus Prime gets wished young again, like Goku in Dragon Ball GT.

 

 

Actually since we already had a Dragonball reference in the Trypticon comic, I wouldn't be too surprised if something like this happened. (Orion played as a goofball youngster would be A+ content)

I really wish Orion Pax's design committed as fully to the throwbacky nostalgia Happy Days '50s theme of the Golden Age the way Ariel's ponytail and vest-blouse deal do. All he'd really need is a torso redesigned to look more like a letterman jacket.

At a certain point it is.  I'm not sure when it happened precisely, as I would have to look to see which was the first figure to have black screws, but I know that Legends Jetfire doesn't have them (I know this as a result of comparing the Legends version to the Revolution version).

 

It's something that they've done in the past for certain releases, like I seem to recall Skywarp having black screws previously because he was 70% black when whatever Hasbro counterpart did not. 

 

I also think Masterpiece has been doing it longer than Legends has.

I actually just canceled my preorders for both Hot Rod and Kup on HLJ (forgot I had them actually). I realized I just don't need 'em, so there may be one of each available if someone's lookin'.

"Futuristic Shark"

 

Ah yes. In the far-flung future of 2005, sharks will mutate into weird, piranha-like things with spindly arms and thick T-rex legs. Maybe some will convert into chubby dudes that like sticks of gum from a couple of randos they captured, too.

Not nice enough for me to ditch Hot Rod and buy the Takara one, mind, but still.

The new tooling on Kup is impressively rubbish. You've got... whatever the deal with that face is, but then new forearms that are smaller than his fists too!

The colours are nice, at least.

That's the only G2 Megatron that Japan had in the 90's. The purple "Hero" version. 

 

But, yeah, if you flip back through the thread, you;ll see a lot of commentary about how it's not really G2 enough for a lot of fans. (It needs more orange, darnit!)

Yeah, without the orange you instantly lose about 80% of the figure's visual interest.

LG Kup and Hot Rod are really pretty. They look less like toys and more like they popped off the screen.

Glad Sharkticon looks more cartoon like as a counterpart to Hasbro's toy version.

Yeah, without the orange you instantly lose about 80% of the figure's visual interest.


If that beautiful clear blue was orange, it'd be appropriate.

Wait, hold up. Hasbro is on the left? I'm confused because I like the version on the left better in each case, mostly because they seem to have more/better paint apps. What am I missing? Has the world gone mad?!
