The most immediately annoying aspect of TRU's financial situation is that every single time a grown man experiences a minor inconvenience that he would experience at any retailer in the country, he makes a post online about how obvious it would be to completely pay off their debt by stocking a single toyline slightly differently.

i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:45 PM)

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:29 PM)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

Next year I will have the option for permanent late shift.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:22 PM)

Less than 3 hours to go, now

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 December 2017 - 11:23 AM)

Because internet.

If that were true, Investigation Discovery Channel wouldn't exist to tell me how many wonderful ways I can murder people.

I seriously cannot see anything beyond shades of silver and gray and a tiny bit of gold in that CG model's armor. The red eye is the only other bit of color I can see on 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.

So glad that Megs mold finally got this lovely color scheme on it, with a seemingly good paint budget at that. I've seen complaints of "why didn't they do the Leader", but that only makes sense if you consider rarity rather than whether or not it's HAD this deco. This is a nice design and it looks great done up in this deco.

Shockwave... I always read it as a violet, that is, closer to blue than to red, so this looks about right to my eyes.

People in Japan reporting QC problems with Starscream and Soundwave as well. Haven't opened mine yet. 

 

My Bumblebee didn't seem too bad, just one of his hip panels wouldn't fold back all the way until I shaved off some plastic in the joint.  Getting it back into car mode also needed some panel massaging, but I'm not sure if it was any worse than previous releases of the mold.

Also, Ironhide's instructions are apparently hard to understand (not sure if they're significantly different from previous releases), and people have been getting stress marks trying to get the head out when transforming to robot mode.  Also looks like some people might be having QC issues with him.

Eh, Leader's proportions are way better.  Voyager has a slightly more inventive transformation scheme, but the end result is an extra wide torso, with wideset and small legs.

 

Leader also has way cooler weapons.

I remember having that problem with the original release - it happens if you don't slide the posts the arms are on all the way out. IIRC it's the kind of thing where you need a little extra pressure to pop them into the final position, so it's easy to unwittingly not pull them out fully.

One glaring omission in this and their AOE rerelease items is Leadfoot. He didn't get a really widespread release in DOTM, and it'd be nice for people to get another shot at him. Of course I have no idea if there may be licensing and technical whatevers in the way.

Can't seem to get the head/windshield assembly to lock in during robot mode.  Googled and saw that several others (including Jeremy here on the Allspark) had this problem, so I guess it's not supposed to lock in?

I'm still holding out hope, we've not seen Takara's TLK line yet, and who says that Movie Best is over. It's a tiny sliver of hope that's constantly shrinking, but it's still hope.

 

Of course, that still won't get us a full set of accurate Wreckers in the same scale...
