it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

Pretty great IDW sale on comiXology. Could be a good opportunity for folks to fill in the gaps from the Humble Bundle.

Odd that the TF section of that sales page is missing like a lot of stuff (at least for me). Though the code still worked with things not on the sales page's list.

Yes! Does anyone who's more IDW Joe literate have recommendations for some key Joe stuff that's missing from the bundle? I tried browsing through a bunch of the stuff on ComiXology to figure out gaps but got confused very quickly about what was in the Humble Bundle collections and what wasn't. It looks like a bunch of the Joe books haven't been collected which makes it messier.

Any major Transformers stuff missing from the bundle?

Indeed.

 

Also wondering how much there is to get after the TMNT and Ghostbusters sales from earlier this year.

Bundle is missing nearly everything before Death of Optimus Prime (besides Infiltration and Devastation), plus Dark Cybertron and the Dark Prelude Spotlights. Comixology's discount code should work with any of IDW's Transformers material from before September 12th.

Okay, Joe first:

- G.I. Joe vol. 1: Issues #0-27, no trades on comiXology for some reason.
- G.I. Joe Special - Helix: Can't actually find this on comiXology?
- Origins: Issues #1-23, no trades again.
- Cobra II: Only need issues #5-9, the rest are in The Last Laugh from the bundle.
- Hearts and Minds: Link is to the trade.
- Infestation: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 2: You want issue #12 (since Cobra Command Vol. 3 is unavailable) and issue #21 (since it was never collected, best I can tell).
- Snake Eyes: You want issue #12 (same deal as Joe #12), the 'Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow Vol. 1' TPB (it got renamed, so this is actually #13-17) and issue #21 (also never collected).
- Target: Snake Eyes: This is #18-20 of both Joe vol. 2 and Snake Eyes.
- Cobra vol. 2: A weird one. You want issues #5-8 (the second TPB, which is missing), the 'Son of the Snake' TPB (actually the third TPB, but mislabelled as volume 2), the 'Oktober Guard' TPB, and the 2012 Annual down at the bottom.
- Infestation II: Two issues.
- G.I. Joe vol. 3: Nice and simple, TPB Vol. 1-3.
- Special Missions: TPB Vol. 1-3 again.
- G.I. Joe vol. 4 (The Fall of G.I. Joe): TPB Vol. 1-2.
- Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra: Link is to the TPB.

This isn't done but I gotta run now, will come back and finish it later.

Hhuh. I bet that explains why vol 2 isn't in the bundle. Just an old-fashioned inventory-keeping cockup.

Have they made the Complete Allspark Almanac available digitally yet?  I see the two normal volumes, but I'd rather wait for the complete version.

 

Hmmm, do I need a digital copy of Sins of the Wreckers?  Yes I do.

Thanks, though I phrased that poorly: Anything major since MTMTE and RID began that's missing in the Humble Bundle? That's where I'm trying to catch up now.

The -acies (Autocracy, Monstrosity, Primacy), Dark Prelude (AKA the 2013 Spotlight issues), Dark Cybertron Vol. 1-2, Punishment, Sins of the Wreckers, Empire of Stone, Redemption, and the Vol. 10s of MTMTE and ex-RID are the missing trades from the bundle.

Of those, Dark Cybertron and the Vol. 10s are the most essential, but all of them except the -acies (which exist in their own little bubble mostly) do figure into the ongoing story in some way.

The only things that strictly fit that criteria are Dark Cybertron, Dark Prelude, the volume 10s and the Punishment one shot.

 

Of those the only one I'd say was actually essential is Dark Cybertron. But a good half of the Dark Prelude one off issues are legitimately great.

 

If you're looking for some earlier stuff, I mean a lot of it is relevant to RID, but the best stuff is the Roberts stuff to my mind, so issues 22 and 23 of the ongoing, and Last Stand of the Wreckers. They're directly referenced in MTMTE.

I think I have everything early except Spotlight: Kup, and on up to the big thing with that giant Decepticon thing. It was after it split into two books that I've been off and on, and I got a bunch of that stuff in the last Humble Bundle. So I guess I should have mentioned that as well.

 

Man, this is tough to keep up with unless you're right there as it happens. XP

 

Anyway, Comixology should have everything else I need then, right?

 

Edit: Got a headache just trying to look through Comixology's listing and parsing what's what. That they threw that Transfusion thing in there, too -- that's not part of their TF stuff, is it? It wasn't really labeled as such, despite placement.

 

Grabbed Sins of the Wreckers, and I think between the last two Humble sales, I have all of RiD and MTMTE, including Dark Cybertron. I got Combiner Wars via a previous Comixology sale, and Windblade is thrown in here, too. And I think I have all the Dark Prelude stuff... somehow. Somewhere. I think.

 

So I just need the Volume 10s (are those part of the Comixology sale? I don't know when they came out) and Punishment, and I ought to be good?

 

Edit #2: I'm not seeing any of those in Comixology's sale page.

 

I do see Transformers and MTMTE #56, though. Do I grab those, or am I already covered? Or are those part of Volume 10, which isn't in the sale?

 

And Til All Are One #3 and All Hail Optimus #55? Wha? What is this I don't even I'm so confused on what I need I thought All Hail Optimus was its own thing agafssdfffalahgl hfdafuiahfpahefhafasbn __/\__/\__/\/\/\/\/\_____________________________

I'd been sitting here thinking "people who just want to catch up on TF are so lucky, it's a hundred times easier than figuring out the Joe books", but maybe I only felt that way because I've been reading IDW's TF since before Furman left so I don't have to worry about it. 

 

GOOD LUCK
