Blaming capitalism will soon be a felony.

@  Cyoti : (18 December 2017 - 02:01 PM)

I just blame Bain Capital.

@  Shrug : (18 December 2017 - 01:28 PM)

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.

@  Bass X0 : (18 December 2017 - 12:58 PM)

Overhearing a conversation... what do you have to do in life to earn the nickname "Pineapple"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 December 2017 - 10:11 AM)

"Have you tried lighting the darkest hour, sir?"

@  unluckiness : (18 December 2017 - 08:07 AM)

"The missile failed... I'll have to finish this personally..."

@  MEDdMI : (17 December 2017 - 10:44 PM)

Next thing you know, you'll wake up with Unicron looming over you, holding a knife.

@  Paladin : (17 December 2017 - 07:51 PM)

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)

Grats Nevermore.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 12:13 PM)

That's awesome, congrats!

@  WorkbenchManiac : (17 December 2017 - 11:14 AM)

Congratulations!

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

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.

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

Soon I'll be free!

@  RichardT1977 : (17 December 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Did I miss something, or did the whole movie pass without

Spoiler
?

@  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)

That said, I do think it is really weird that

Spoiler

@  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)

It's mostly

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 09:21 PM)

Do spoiler tags work here?

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:13 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.

@  Bass X0 : (16 December 2017 - 11:20 AM)

Why are people getting so upset with other people's opinions of a family space movie?

Ask Vector Prime:

 

 

Through a break in the increasingly-omnipresent Shroud, I sense distress! Only You can guide the Spatiotemporal Challengers to their ultimate destiny! Be sure to head to Yat--er, ah, that is, head to Twitter and vote before the month is out!

15179145_954459911352646_691853159099088

15109468_954459908019313_555705346431723

Should it be Bad Boy who goes on this fateful mission? Or perhaps Road Ranger?

15219593_954461991352438_536692381589389

Perhaps it is Rest-Q whose healing shall save the day. Or mayhaps the great experience and wisdom of Man-O-War is what is needed.

15181193_954462958019008_827525985153225

The powerful Treds would be useful in any dangerous situation. And the unpredictable Buggy Man is never to be underestimated.

15178164_954463074685663_751994138190617

Path Finder shall lead the team, that much is assured. But the neophyte Small Foot also has much to prove, and much to offer. Choose wisely!

15094363_954463288018975_388647705990519

 

 

 

I forget... November has how many days? Well, perhaps it's not terribly important.

 

Q: Erm... dumb question, but... how do I vote?

 

A: Go to Twitter and employ the appropriate... what is the word? Hash tags.

For the vote, just take to Twitter and use the hashtag(s) for the robot(s) you want to see go on the mission.Whatever the outcome of the poll, that will be the group. Any Gobots suggested in this story as being part of the mission can be... replaced... should popular vote demand it.

 

And yeah, voting ends November 30th. Not the 31st. That was a typo that I copied over without noticing, but then left because I was still feeling silly after all those blueprints. :p

Apparently in another dimension, there's a November 31st?

After pinpointing their location, I was able to discern that their interdimensional transmitter could be accessed by the futuristic technology we know as... hashtags.

Potentially, you could tell Path Finder to wait for the second trip to reconvene, but wouldn't you rather have her around than Man-O-War?

So I guess they managed to defeat Drift then.

I'm thinking that the stern-voiced, unknown red Transformer with the enormous rifle from the last chapter was just supposed to be Cliffjumper all along, with whoever wrote the Wiki's synopsis for "High Noon" simply misinterpreting the "Afraid I don't catch your drift," dialogue.

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.

I'm sorry, but for a company about to lose the license to produce new content, they're really dragging this shit out, aren't they? Was the actual story content delayed in favor of the S.T.A.R.S. gag, or was it always supposed to be like this?
