@  Paladin : (22 October 2017 - 06:22 PM)

i watched his latest Netflix special. hilarious & heartbreaking at teh same time...

@  RichardT1977 : (21 October 2017 - 12:07 PM)

You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:49 PM)

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 October 2017 - 01:28 AM)

Nuke the headphones from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2017 - 09:04 PM)

It's interesting how life gives you a good thing and then a bad thing. Like, just got my tax return and it was quite robust, and then I found an INCH LONG EARWIG IN MY HEADPHONES. AHHHHH-

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2017 - 11:52 AM)

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

It scared me!

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

In my head the Cataclysm Scales has nothing to do with BWU. VP was talking about a different Tusks / Scales in a different universe.

The Cataclysm-verse Scales sentence gets cut off, so exactly what his disposition is never gets defined.

-JimS

 

Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying that, Jim.

 

I take it that as various GoBots including the lead trios are still in their home reality as of "Last Sunset", then the story of how Cataclysm Crasher and Zero go from Gargent to Malgus is a story yet to be told by you and/or Hydra?

 

Though on that subject, how is it possible that "Cultural Appropriation" says Motosan went to Level 77 but in "Last Sunset" Crasher is beating up Mr. Moto? The Antares Eight screwed up their list?

I mean, as far as we know, Last Sunset could have occured by the time Cultural Appropriations has happened. There data's clearly off in places-Mr. Moto has returned by part 4, despite Man-O-War, BuggyMan, and Rest-Q being on their lists, since it seems like they arrived relatively recently.

The thing about dimension travel: it's not just about which one you pop up in, it's also about where and when you pop up in it.

 

Crasher evidently arrived in Animated prior to the events of the main series, for example, while Zero is in Trypticon Prison, which has that purpose in modern day, which probably means he didn't travel with her, seeing as she was captured by the Decepticons.

Well how do you know Mr. Moto returned as opposed to never traveled and thus his listing is an error?

Well, considering that we know Jim helped Andrew with parts of SC, he presumably would have pointed it out to Andrew and it would of been changed.

There's also Bug Bite's still-undisclosed fate.

 

 

And there's the original e-HOBBY G1 GoBots bio from 2004 that had the six GoBots of that set traveling from their Cataclysm-doomed universe into the Japanese G1 cartoon universe, in which their GoBot technology would be used to create the Spychangers.

 

 

Function: Experimental interdimensional exploration team

 
They were the first group of warriors on Cybertron to use the name “Gobots.” Although they outwardly appear to be average Transformers with conventional alternate modes, they are in fact undercover agents hailing from another galaxy. Their special operations team is banded together from members of two opposing factions working together to save the inhabitants of their homeworld from the Cataclysm. While carrying out secret recon such as intelligence gathering, diplomatic exchange, and space-time alteration experiments, their unique transport methods and cyborg physiology have contributed much to Cybertron, leading to the creation of advanced new generations of Transformers such as the Spychangers.
 
Weapons: Individual built-in firepower

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.

Regarding things like Bug Bite's final whereabouts, there were things I could have added to the story, but just didn't think it had any place in the narrative. Same goes for in what way the Gobots ended up in Japanese continuity at some point. Could be through something with Axiom nexus, could be something with the Caretaker... Despite being the last of the published TCC fiction, I didn't really want to play cleanup for every plot point that had ever been left open by the TCC or tangential TF ficton. 

 

As for the finale of the story, what does it mean to you?

I had a couple explanations in mind for the story and conclusion, one more surreal than the other, but I'd be more interested to hear how people interpret it.

 

As for the overall themes I wanted to address through the narrative:

*What does being a "man" (or human) mean to the Gobots? Is it simply a measure of courage?

*Should one strive to attain a goal without sacrifice, or accept it if it will lead to a greater success? To what extent is sacrifice acceptable?

*Symmetry and satellites: Although published in 4 chapters, the story has 5 main sections (with two published in the last installment). 

In other words, the story orbits around the Caretaker, which makes its first appearance in the middle chapter. What other uses of symmetry or parallel structure can you see in the story?

I imagine Bug Bite's probably somewhere in the SG verse. Might've joined up with Classics Megatron or SG Rodimus. Perhaps even both.
