What if you paid your job but they don't love you?

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 08:01 PM)

...crap, never mind, enough searching and I turned it up. I am convinced this would not have happened without asking.

@  BlackMax : (16 August 2017 - 07:43 PM)

Forgive me for being the last one aboard the bus that came and went after the previous bus... but can anyone direct me to the comic based on UW Megatronia?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 04:36 PM)

I'll refer to Simon Furman's work on Dreamwave.

@  OrionPax44 : (16 August 2017 - 04:28 PM)

How bout if you love your job but they don't pay you?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 02:31 PM)

It doesn't feel like work when you love your job!

Why do you want to remove it? Just in the way or something?

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2017 - 03:42 AM)

I wonder if there's any way to remove Destiny 2 from the Battlenet launcher entirely?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 August 2017 - 01:55 PM)

My wife has that ability to bring up a bill or something the second story starts. Couldn't have been during the silent loading screen either.

God yes. Nothing like spending three hours collecting items, then the instant you get back to the story LET'S ALL SHOUT ABOUT OUR NEW SOCKS! THEY'RE BLUE!!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 August 2017 - 09:12 AM)

I still say ALL games should have a Subtitled option.. Since when I play in the family room it seems people want to talk EVERY SINGLE cut scene.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 AM)

You can usually adjust that in the Settings Menu.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2017 - 07:58 AM)

It used to (on the TV I had in my room growing up, for one).

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2017 - 02:42 AM)

When you mute your tv, it should automatically display closed captioning.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 August 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Hmmm...Right Stuf was asked about the Brave series at Otakon 2017 a little bit ago..."They'll look into it" Dare to hope?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 August 2017 - 06:51 PM)

It's one button, how hard could it be? :D

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 August 2017 - 05:12 PM)

Oh god...iMovie is SO much more complicated than I thought...

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:54 PM)

Even TV Tropes admits that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 04:48 PM)

Because TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2017 - 04:29 PM)

TVTropes is a useful resource. Why is it that people on other sites make fun of using TVTropes terminology?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 August 2017 - 04:21 PM)

The TVTropes page even specifically mentions that it's a wrestling term.

@  JasperGunner... : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

I thought it was a wrestling term

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

"Heel-face-turn"? Did you just use a TVTropes term?

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:52 PM)

So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Where has this plot been done before:

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 01:52 PM)

Until you get the taxes for it.

@  Evac : (12 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

But $69,999 cars are fine

@  Bass X0 : (12 August 2017 - 05:39 AM)

@  Arazyr : (10 August 2017 - 09:31 PM)

Thanks! Glad people seem to like them!

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2017 - 09:25 PM)

Okay, those were pretty awesome. Keep up the good work, man.

@  Arazyr : (10 August 2017 - 07:03 PM)

@  Telly : (10 August 2017 - 07:02 PM)

who on this forum had the comicstrip of swerve and deadpool figures? i wanted to check it out today but i didnt bookmark it like i thought i did and cant remember who did it

@  Evac : (10 August 2017 - 02:13 PM)

I think they both sound like Mr. Burns

@  Bass X0 : (10 August 2017 - 02:03 PM)

In your opinion, does Starscream sound like Cobra Commander, or does Cobra Commander sound like Starscream? (Yes, I know they're the same voice actor)

@  Diecast : (10 August 2017 - 01:28 PM)

MASK spiritual successor Vor-Tech had that intelligent car, right? Have a Transformer interact with something like that.

Transformers get all the creative deaths. We just go *squish*.

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.

Man, that transformation was brilliant. All it needs is the folding hands reinstated and it beats the Leader in every way.

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.

Yeah, one of the reviewers on Amazon said something similar.  Don't think I ever bothered with the deluxe Ironhide before, so hopefully I won't have any major problems.

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...

I think that requires an extra NASCAR license, plus whatever sponsors are on it, so don't hold your breath.
