Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

Please don't take offense, I don't really trust anyone's cognitive ability, even my own, when they're close to an issue.

 

I'm not jumping into this, I feel like I've made my opinion known. I only wanted to highlight this sentence because it is so good and so important to me.

The first casualty of emotion is reason. I own that neither I nor anyone who feels passionately about one side of this issue can always find the correct amount of emotional distance to see things clearly, but I feel it is essential that we always try.

Videos like that are designed to scare the watcher into a certain way of action and thinking, considering the pandemic of police brutality I'm not comfortable with police being taught to be terrified of citizens.

 

I'm not saying that police shouldn't be trained to handle a situation, or warned/taught/shown video of its dangers. I'm saying any video that is being used to justify an exceptionally quick/aggressive response to someone who's been pulled over may not be the one we should use.

 

You're saying that you sympathize with the officer in question because of these videos, when his actions have been called inappropriate by his own commanding officer. I'm not sure why I should believe these videos aren't problematic if they apparently show officers to respond in a way that the Chief of Police say is an example of how not to react.

I'd like to talk for a just a moment about my job.  Provide a little perspective, get some things off my chest.

 

We had another fight in Pod 1B last night.  Thats our biggest pod in our maximum security facility.  1 officer, a sgt, is in charge.  You have about 50 to 60 inmates in there. 

Last night one particular inmate, Childs, attacked another.   When our officer went to break up the fight this inmate grabbed his radio and beat him over the head with it.  Our bubble officer, who controls the doors and is supposed to direct traffic in ICH didn't see it.  Didn't make a callout.  I was working segregation and our mental health ward, pod 4.  I was 20 feet away.  I didn't see it.  He was in there by himself for a sold 45 seconds because no one saw what was really happening.   Our pod 1A officer actually came over when he heard screaming and made the call of 'officer down'.  

This is the 5th or 6th fight in 1B in the last month.  The first big fight I was injured when an inmate jumped on my back while I was dealing with another one. My backup was also hurt and had to be on light duty for a week due to injuries.  The next big fight I got hurt again, but in a way that didn't show so I didn't talk about it.  The third fight was one of our more physical inmates.  Her girlfriend threw hot coffee all over her so she beat the shit out of her.  It took all our responders to get the pods locked down. And so on and so forth.

 

While placing the inmate who struck the officer in segregation, I had to go to another pod to retrieve an important item.  Trying to get back to the door where the inmate and the officers were waiting required me to go through a door controlled by the bubble officer.  I spent 3 minutes asking for the door to be opened on the radio.  I waved my hands to get attention. None of that worked so I said, 'hug it', and I yelled for the door.  

My captain heard me.  I was IMMEDIATELY pulled into an office and got my ass reamed.  Up one side and down the other.  For yelling loudly to get a door opened. So we could finally secure an inmate who injured an officer.

 

That's the standard I live with at work.  Where we take an individual who deliberately hurt an officer and put her in SEG, but you  can't yell when the door doesn't open.  

It bothers me when I see officers just treating the public like absolute shit.  Like this takedown.  Like the officers who fired on an autistic kid.  I don't understand it.  I don't get why they're allowed to do things like that.  How they get away with that shit.   I don't know what they're thinking.  

 

 

sorry.   it's been a real bad month at work and i'm just tired.  you try to do a good job.  you try to help people.  things just don't work out sometimes.

a follow up to my previous post.  

last night we had 2 more fights.  2 officers taken to the hospital.  I was working the bubble.  People damn well heard we needed help.  

we were stretched so thin we had to call in our SORT team, basically SWAT for prisons.   Just to have the people on the ground to get the job done.  Long night.  

 

in case you are all interested in seeing one of the many people who contributed to the mess of last night, here's one of the fighters who then attacked an officer.

Don't know if this quite fits, but I'll just slip this in here.

 

I guess this is a thing now? Employees at restaurants refusing service to police?

 

Link

 

 

BRENHAM, TEXAS - The famous golden arches serve as big beacons that hundreds of hungry customers are drawn to everyday.

 

But when an off-duty Brenham police officer tried to eat at the location off Highway 290 with his two kids, an employee denied him service, simply because he's an officer.

 

"Nobody deserves to be treated like that," said Brenham Police Chief Craig Goodman.

 

Another worker ultimately did the right thing and served the officer and his family, but the incident started spreading on social media.

 

"We know that these problems exist everywhere, but we did not expect that here," said Goodman.

 

McDonald's customers weren't happy, either.

 

"It's beyond disrespectful, it's anti-American," said Gloria.

 

"The same lady that refused the officer, if someone breaks into her house, who is she going to call?" HC Troxler said.

 

The officer brought the incident up to his captain. They contacted McDonald's and the restaurant didn't waste much time.

 

"They, much like a police organization, looked at what took place, and after gathering the information, they came to the right decision and that employee no longer works for their business," said Goodman.

 

Goodman says the female worker's son was already in custody and facing serious charges. He believes that may be part of the fuel that sparked her negative feelings towards police.

 

"He's disappointed in what happened, mainly because his kids were with him," said Goodman.

 

The officer at the center of it all is opting to not be identified, but Goodman says he's one of the department’s best and a former Marine. He's hoping what happened at the iconic fast food restaurant can teach bigger lessons.

 

Goodman is urging the community to accept McDonald's apology, move forward and continue supporting a local restaurant that has always backed the blue.

 

"We're not judging McDonalds and their employees based on the action of this one worker," said Goodman. "Just like we ask the community and the country not judge our police officers because other officers make bad decisions."

A cook at a restaurant in Virginia refused to serve a police officer in uniform Monday night, a police union says.

An officer in the Alexandria Police Department stopped by Noodles & Company on Duke Street in Alexandria for dinner, Alexandria Committee of Police Vice President Peter Feltham said.

As she stood in line, a cook exited the kitchen, approached the cashier and pointed at the officer, Feltham said he was told.

"You’re going to have to take me off the line, I ain’t serving that," the cook allegedly said.

“The officer realized what was happening and rather than making an incident of it, the officer just left the business,” Feltham said.

Alexandria Police Chief Earl Cook and a representative of the Alexandria Police Union met with restaurant management Tuesday.

“These are very difficult times right now in our relations with everyone, and to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily, your first response is anger,” Cook said. “Then you calm down a bit and say, let’s just find out what happened.”

Noodles & Company told News4 the company does not “tolerate any form of discrimination.” The restaurant said managers reached out to the officer but have not spoken with her yet.

The restaurant said it is interviewing the employees allegedly involved.

“We will continue to look into the situation and will take the appropriate actions at the conclusion of this review,” Noodles & Company said in a statement.

The police union said the restaurant is already taking steps to amend the matter, and has "agreed to post signs on their door that they support blue lives,” Feltham said.

 

Beyond stupid on a number of levels and I can't feel any sympathy for these people getting fired.

I think I'll refuse to serve a gay person because I am protesting the governments decision on gay marriage.

I'm of two minds on this.

 

On the one hand, this seems like the natural result of ongoing police brutality and the failure of any meaningful resolve on it.  The public is beginning to resent the police in general and it's starting to seep into everyday interaction.

 

On the other hand, this isn't right.  These people are employees, right?  They don't really have the right to deny anyone service for any reason outside of them being actively abused and this is going to cause a lot of trouble before it makes anything better.

 

On the inexplicable and slightly concerning third hand, if the police departments are smart, they'll take a hint that things are not well in the public and they ought to seek out better results soon, or there could be far worse coming.  Those good officers need to start stepping up, because the public is getting less and less able to tell which is which.

That analogy doesn't work. Ethnicity and sexual orientation aren't things that a person chooses. If you become a cop, however, you're choosing to join a profession notable for its members' ability to kill people with minimal legal accountability. If you want to be a good cop, and for people to think of you as one, you should loudly and publicly condemn those in your profession who murder, and the union bosses who enable them. Otherwise, you can expect that some people will view your silence as complicity, and not want to do business with you.

Sure.

As long as you don't mind getting fired over it.

Unless your employers agree with you, you can't reasonably expect to keep your job after refusing to serve a customer as a form of protest.

Not the type I would be recommending because it's too high risk with too little reward. A more effective form of civil disobedience would be serving them but replacing "have a nice day" or whatever their normal goodbye is with "Black Lives Matter". If the cop tries to make a big stink out of that or get the worker in trouble they'd have more cushion (it isn't like they refused service or told them to hug off) and the officer would come off looking bad. And I assume the good ones would just say "I agree, try to live up to that everyday" and be on their way.

If you become a cop, however, you're choosing to join a profession notable for its members' ability to kill people with minimal legal accountability. If you want to be a good cop, and for people to think of you as one, you should loudly and publicly condemn those in your profession who murder, and the union bosses who enable them. Otherwise, you can expect that some people will view your silence as complicity, and not want to do business with you.

 

 

Analogy is a higher form of cognitive reasoning and the similarity you miss is not one of similarity among the recipients but similarity in the reasoning of the one refusing service.  This one should help make that a little more clear.  Let's refuse a Muslim from entering this country because of how many Muslims have committed acts of terrorism against us.  Oh....wait....  that's wrong you say?  Certainly not.  It's a form of protest.  Totally okay because these people CHOOSE to be Muslim.  Wait what?  Still wrong?  Not by your reasoning.

And while I'm at it, there are a whole heck of a lot of cops who joined the police force for all kinds of reasons other than 'they have the ability to kill people with minimal legal accountability'.  You do realize that most of these people go out each and every day with the possibility of being injured or killed just because of their line of work?  Contrary to your reasoning and thought processes, police across this country are not some monolithic organization or being.  The cops in the reports above, as far as we can tell, have no relation whatsoever to the people who have been in the news wearing a badge while racist.  These were otherwise innocent officers and you have no idea how vocal they are or are not regarding the police brutality of others.  You've judged them worthy of mistreatment simply for wearing a badge.  Just like others would judge someone worthy of mistreatment for being Black, Gay, or Muslim. It is constipated thinking at best...and outright prejudice in most cases.

Another girl claiming "sovereign citizenship" that police were extra-polite with. Only this one was killed after threatening police with a shotgun when they came to serve a bench warrant on her.
