Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

G1 toy colors without translucent parts would have been my first choice. Then try to do up some of the other TMs - like Barrel Roller for the Orion Pax from the 2-pack, Fracas... Marvel colors Krunix (shades of purple). After that, browse for any other characters that would work as Targetmasters (Be a goof and suggest Treadshot and Browning? MAYbe. non-BW Stampy and Break? I'd look into it).  

 

SG would be last on my list, but I wouldn't say no.

Bios for them could have either been written vague enough to apply them to any continuity, or with a reference or two to the Scouring of Nebulos and/or the Targetmaster Extirpation from Beast Wars: Uprising.

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.

They could be a big pack of background Nebulans.

Borx, Kari, Klab, Llyra, Marita, Selani, Sorgen, Soriza, and Zella.

 

And you could throw in titan/prime masters for Patra and Wallbreaker as well.

I've got a few of them now and, whilst it's cute that they have unique moulding, they're really not particularly exciting. They don't even make very good weapons!

 

Thanks to the guns hanging off their backs, they can 'perch' rather well, though:

It's built for it - there are 5mm sockets on the shoulders that the cannon can plug into.

It's amazing that this figure actually looks decent with a nice color scheme AND some paint.

Goddamn. "This is simultaneously G2, Beast Wars, and Beast Machines" is pretty much just "we are trying to specifically market to this guy right here."

Unfortunately the Megatron rules sticker doesn't look as good as the g2 sticker. If I had him though I doubt I wouldn't apply it still.

I wish the sticker were a little smaller so it could fold down the (admittedly small) angle on his chest. A little more reminiscent of the original toy and a little less of a t-shirt.
Of course I'd be tempted to use the Pred symbol if I got him. For elepuntastic reasons.

Theory is the Headmaster is Legends BW Megatron with a transector. 

 

The logos could be for Noble too.  But he was never a BW Predacon (being a BM Maximal), so it's likely for the bigger figure.

Blue latches? There's a pair of red latches that end up next to the wings that I know are going to break off sooner or later, but I can't think of any blue ones, and now I'm afraid to take him apart to look.
