Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

Nothing phenomenal, but new pics on the landing page.  The links don't take you to the new pics, but the ones they show cropped are really nice.

Scourge in particular looks great, and shows that it was a good idea to make his Head Master's limbs white as they don't read as a continuation of his head, so the actual front regular Scourge part of his head reads as Scourge more than the Hasbro one does with all the extra blue behind it.

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.

Galvatron and Shockwave look terrible, of course, and Scourge and Blurr have been discussed endlessly already (and Randy's point about the contrast behind Scourge's head is a good one), but the thing I keep being surprised by is how much I love Takara Hardhead's colors. There's something about that warm brown-grey, and although in usual Takara style there's less value contrast between the grey and green, it's not so reduced as to make the whole thing one unbroken value. He looks really nice (except for the loss of the toy head).

It seems to be a Targetmaster thing, for whatever reason.

 

(Yes, that means the Targetmasters are the ones who don't come with transforming guns.)

Baseless speculation, but perhaps given Takara's general attachment to slavishness, Headmaster toys of characters who weren't previously Headmasters might be a harder sell in their market? Lack of the accessories helps keeps the cost down relevant to the others.

It's the Headmasters' revenge on having to give up their heads in Rebirth while the Targetmasters only had to give up their guns.  So now the Headmasters have extra vehicles / animals that they can flaunt in front of those racist Targetmasters.

So $45 is way too much to pay for that little Megatron that comes with a miscolored Galvatron body accessory, right? That's what I keep trying to tell myself anyway...

The way Galvatron's head is painted reminds me of Prime Megatron.

That head has always reminded me of Prime Megs, although I guess it's just a Galvatron head with stubby horns. Honestly, painted with the contrast between the "crown" and the rest of the head, that makes a pretty okay Galvatron head by itself, if the mask is as awful as everyone says.

 

Didn't we think the whole "helmet" area was painted on the Japanese one? Were we wrong? Did everyone else know that and not me? Did it change?

I didn't realize it was basically Galvatron's head just smooshed into Titanmaster-friendly dimensions. 

 

To be fair I'm not buying it and haven't looked that closely, so maybe that revelation is well-known already.

We could see there was some purple color, but it was never fully shown what the head looked like transformed without the crown atop it.

Galvatron and Shockwave look terrible, of course, 

 

I don't think so. A darker purple would have been nice but Takara's versions have much needed paint that Hasbro's doesn't have. I dislike the amount of clear plastic that Hasbro Shockwave has. I also prefer the warmer grey plastic of Takara Shockwave.

*Sigh* I really wanted to buy Takara's Galvatron, but I just don't think I can convince myself anymore.  I've gone back and forth on whether I could get used to it, but ultimately, that shade of purple just does not read as my Galvatron, so I'm opting out.  I do love what they've done with the non-purple areas though.  I suppose that my ideal version would be Takara's legs, feet, tank treads and head coupled with Hasbro's darker purple.  Oh well.  :(

Frankly, the lighter and bluer and more desaturated the purple, the more my brain wants me to think it's Marvel Galvatron.  It's a first impression that absolutely doesn't withstand scrutiny, but that mental echo is there nonetheless.

My ideal Galvatron would be Hasbro's Galvatron with the gray treads from TT's Galvatron. Then TT's Megatron/Nucleon, although I'm undecided about which version to use as the head. I might lean towards TT's, but only if I could manage to remove that lavender without messing up any other paint.

 

Really, I would be very tempted to buy TT's Galvy just to take the treads and the head, and then throw the rest away. Unfortunately, the treads are attached with a pin joint, and I have not been successful at disassembling those joints without wrecking everything around it. Anyone else getting really annoyed with how prevalent those pins are becoming in newer figures?
