Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

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.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

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)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

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.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

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

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

So in Philadelphia in the wake of riots stemming from the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. police assaulted a family who were driving past the protest area, broke out their car windows, assaulted the adults in the car (Who were later released with no charges.)

 

And then used the child in the car for propaganda claiming they found him wandering around in the protest and all they cared about was helping/protecting him.

At one point, the marchers held a moment of silence in the street in honor of George Floyd, the Black man killed while in police custody in Minneapolis earlier this summer.

 

After the moment of silence concluded, law enforcement told people to clear the road.

 

Then, deputies and police officers used pepper spray on the crowd and began arresting people. Several children in the crowd were affected by the pepper spray.

 

Melanie Mitchell said her 5-year-old and 11-year-old daughters were pepper-sprayed just after the moment of silence.

 

She said Graham police approached the crowd assembled in the street and told them to move onto the sidewalk and soon began spraying pepper spray toward the ground. Mitchell’s 5-year-old took off running, she said. Both kids threw up.

 

“My 11-year-old was terrified,” Mitchell said. “She doesn’t want to come down to Graham anymore.”

 

The crowd then moved to the courthouse where speeches were being given. But before the speeches concluded, Alamance County sheriff’s deputies began dismantling the sound system and telling the crowd to disperse.

Disgusting.

Dozens of NYPD officers in riot gear and full body armor violently arrested 11 demonstrators in Manhattan on Sunday afternoon. The officers shoved some people with their batons and tackled others, apparently for standing on the street, in a show of force two days before the 2020 presidential election.

Around 100 demonstrators initially gathered in Madison Square Park to confront caravans of Trump supporters, who were expected to drive through Manhattan. The group marched from the park to the West Side Highway, where they’d heard one of the Trump caravans was slated to pass by, but they never showed up.

The remaining protesters started to walk away from the area, moving east along 23rd Street. Police officers who’d been trailing the group suddenly charged from behind, dividing the group on the sidewalks, then arresting demonstrators and at least two photographers.

 

 

In a tweet, the NYPD maintained that no photojournalists were actually arrested, because none of the arrestees were NYPD-credentialed members of the press.

"NYPD-credentialed"? The hug? Why would the police get to decide who is and isn't a journalist?

Yeah, the guy who tried to turn himself in that night, then turned himself in the next day will surely run this time. There is no chance he gets convicted on murder, it's very unlikely they get him on man slaughter. The straw purchase of the firearm is the only slam dunk they have, and live max sentence for that is 10 years, typical sentences are usually closer to a year or two.

FB friend:

 
Police: "We are so committed to accountability and transparency that all of our officers now wear bodycams!"
Public: "Great! Can we see the uncensored body cam footage?"
Police: "LOL no".
---
Bodycams are not about transparency. They are about maintaining the false pretense of transparency. The police decide which pieces of footage you can see, and when you can see them. And that's if they didn't just disable the bodycam at a critical juncture.

You know what would be a great idea right now? BLM activists explicitly declaring officers Brian Sicknick and Eugene Goodman as heroes. The MAGA morons adopted "blue lives matter" as a counter to the "Black Lives Matter" movement. Then they killed a cop, and another one (a black one, even!) has been hailed as a hero by the media for diverting the insurgents.

 

Use this to your advantage, BLM. Show that you don't hate all cops, just the racist murderous assholes, many as they might be. Separate the good cops from the bad cops. Every law enforcement officer who takes a stand against racists and Nazis, every one killed in the line of duty by a racist right-winger. Declare them allies. This can be a turning point for the BLM movement by declaring solidarity with those who opposed these morons.

 

Imagine BLM were to, I don't know, create an ad or hold an event instead of "black lives matter", this one time they say "blue lives matter" and hold up Sicknick's photo. Imagine the message that would send to the cops and the public. "We're not the enemy. Those lunatics are. They're our enemy, and they're your enemy too. They killed a good cop."

Here's the thing.. BLM was never about "hating the cops." It's about the dismantling the systemic and corrupt system that consistently allows cops to commit racist actions and be shielded from any outfall from it.

To have the BLM supporters use Eugene as a prop would be a disservice to the movement and to Eugene himself. He's a hero not a token, and neither side should reduce him into one.
