Or working for an airline and people complaining about not being able to take off in severe weather, and expecting us to know when the bad weather will end. *points at window*

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2018 - 07:34 PM)

Outages/fire alarms are fun when you work retail and people complain that they can't keep shopping.

@  Echowarrior : (17 July 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Outages occasionally happened at the fulfillment center I used to work at. Never fun.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:51 PM)

Apparently the early shift (i.e. those who didn't participate in the walkout) were sitting in the cafeteria, waiting for power to return, while the late shift couldn't even enter the building.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 04:18 PM)

Oh, wow. I thought the news about the website outtage would have been the topper, but that pretty much wins.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

Whoopsie.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

First the union called for a two-day strike yesterday, and then today the entire city where the Amazon warehouse I work at is located apparently had a power outage.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2018 - 04:14 PM)

So,uh. Seems like Amazon's Prime Day really didn't go well this year.

@  unluckiness : (17 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

It wasn't just blander and more polite bacon like I was expecting

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 July 2018 - 09:51 AM)

Canadian bacon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 July 2018 - 09:15 AM)

And the even more important question is: is that ballpit deep enough to conceal a body... what?

@  unluckiness : (17 July 2018 - 05:35 AM)

THe more important question is if they have a ball pit

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2018 - 10:18 PM)

How many attendees on average does TFcon get? And how about TFNation?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 06:31 PM)

Hey man, how you deal with yo problems is yo bidness.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 04:08 PM)

I did no such thing! I am innocent of the pop tart corruption!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 02:57 PM)

You guys made me buy cinnamon roll Pop Tarts today.

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:38 PM)

@D Immortalis Just fill the bag with air first and pop that? XP Oh, and you won't like that I grew up microwaving them more often than actually toasting. ;)

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:37 PM)

@MEDdMI Yeah, the even more artificial flavors like S'more are the ones that usually taste good cold. There exceptions... I think it was Sugar Cookie that needed to be toasted...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 02:19 PM)

And.. Amazon is borked.

@  Donocropolis : (16 July 2018 - 05:55 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw - Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered him and P/CP

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 01:41 AM)

@  Paladin : (15 July 2018 - 07:41 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 07:33 PM)

Nuke them enough in the microwave....?

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 10:07 AM)

oh wow Jazz has heel spurs.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Do they still make the cinnamon-brown sugar ones?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:03 PM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Four IS standard... but it's been so long I had forgotten.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 July 2018 - 07:29 PM)

Bah, wonko, I remember when 4 was STANDARD

@  Paladin : (14 July 2018 - 04:10 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 01:10 PM)

Me: opening a box of pop tarts. "Oh my god! There's FOUR in here?!?! Score!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

Silly question: would Daburu and the Cybertronic counterpart to White Leo be the same guy, or separate characters?

...and RID Megatron would be "Overlord"? :D


It's a reference to Masterforce Overlord's European G1 name, Gigatron. The wiki folded the two together because "Gigatron" never got any meaningful traction the way the other Godmaster-Powermaster pairings are distinct.

Also, Jim would be following the pattern he used for 13 Demon General Gigatron, who combined elements of both Masterforce Overlord and CR Gigatron.

 
Quite, but the precedent for BWU is that characters don't usually share names, which makes it a bit weird that Jim would choose to use "Gigatron" for the guy who does have an alternate name.

*shrug* Maybe Jim really likes to combine these two Gigatrons (with Overlord possibly still separate). Like how Wings combined G1 Decepticons Drench and G2 Autobot Drench together.

27 June 2015. Destronger Chōkon General Gigatron joined Bio Ranger Iga's Thirteen Great Demon Generals.

24 July 2015. In JG1 (or at least the variant cultivated by Jim, Hydra, and Ichikawa-san), Giga and Mega's Overlord transtector was originally intended for a fallen Destron named Gigatron, paralleling Ginrai's transtector being intended for Convoy.

Huh.

I never took the latter as having anything to do with the RID Gigatron. I thought it was just a nod to Euro-Gigatron.

The "Chōkon" bit I assumed was just a homage rather than "merging" the characters, just like Sixshot being Shockwave's brother.

We have Full-Tilt and Longrack commanding the Dinosaur/Trypticon. Any ideas on the power structure of the Gung Ho?


I do. We might see them in the finale a bit, possibly.

 

Is all or just most of the alien languages in the Complete AA changed?


Perhaps 95%. In a very few cases it didn't make sense to do so. Or would have been prohibitively difficult because of the way the files are saved.

Obviously Cybertronian-human relations haven't been in a stellar state for some time. But in your head, does that prohibit Prowl II and Prowl 2 from existing?


Not necessarily. There is certainly an owl that looks like the Prowl owl. Whether or not its Prowl 2/II...

(Also, you've said that Aura would have submarine "speakers", but d'you think that Vampire has a flight mode?)

Yup! Boxey is a great mouser and a wonderful companion for James. He's named after the BSG kid sidekick, though he's evolved into an Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference as well, since his middle name has become "Brown".

Silly question: would Daburu and the Cybertronic counterpart to White Leo be the same guy, or separate characters? 

 

Same guy in this continuity. 

 

 

Does the presence of Budora imply the other Go!/Prime Predacons exist in this reality? (I mean, I ended up buying all of them thanks to the Budora cameo, but still...)

 

Yes. They're all players in this universe.

 

 

Why is it that the Prime cartoon's universal stream, Uniend 911.05 Alpha, is designated with its UK premiere date instead of its U.S. premiere date?

 

I believe that the wiki had that date prominently on the page at the time and I made a screw-up. However, worked out ok, since there's a version of this universe in the Primax stream, and I figure THAT one used the US airdate.

 

 

Are we likely to see any more MASK-derived characters like Aura and Vampire?

(Also, you've said that Aura would have submarine "speakers", but d'you think that Vampire has a flight mode?)

 

There are more, but I don't know if we'll see any. Depends on if I need semi-prominent extras and any of the MASK guys fit the bill. Vampire was based on CW Groove; if he can be fiddled with to have a flight mode then sure. 

 

 

Lip Convoy is the Supreme Commander of the Resistance. Does the Builder regime have its own chief executive?

 

The Builders mostly do things by committee these days. Millions of years of misrule by various supreme executives, from Optimus to Megatron to Galvatron to Rodimus to Thunderwing, have left a bad taste in their collective mouths on the subject. 

 

 

Is there an in universe reason for why Pred Scorponok shares a name with a prominent deception builder (or Builder created battle suit?)

 

Objection, your honor! Assumes facts not in evidence.
