I was wondering if that was just me...

Feels like it's been so long since there's been a proper storm that I've been awake for. This one even has pink lightning, which always great.

So long as he has an R by his name. Even if the R is for "Recepticons"

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Sadly, my first reaction was "And I'm sure way too many people would seriously, unironically really vote for the blatant bad guy and still cheer at him while he's slaughtering the masses because they saw him on TV and he's cool."

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:17 AM)

Someone over at TFW2005 just discovered an old photo of political campaign signs, with one saying "Vote Megatron! Global Domination."

The rest of the world may build a wall around the US in 2075.

Tell an conservative conspiracy maniac that women are literally the Satan's spawn out to infect humanity with the gender virus that will turn everyone into communist Muslims who eat children, and they will be like, "Well of course! That makes perfect sense!"

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2018 - 05:48 AM)

Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

Oh don't make me go talk to Peter Dutton. My week has been painful enough as it is...

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

@  MEDdMI : (18 November 2018 - 12:01 AM)

@Pennpenn hooray! Now you can leave quarantine.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 November 2018 - 03:34 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 November 2018 - 01:21 PM)

To the show or the city?

@  The Doctor Who : (17 November 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Niiice!

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2018 - 10:48 AM)

My mom won two tickets to Hamilton!

@  wonko the sane? : (17 November 2018 - 09:46 AM)

Welp, good morning so far. My brother helped me get my sister in law's christmas gift, and reminded me I still had to get my mom's calendar for next year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 06:27 PM)

Fear is a state of mind.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 November 2018 - 06:25 PM)

Did you just assume my sociopolitical status?

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2018 - 06:13 PM)

Oh stop being such a pack of drama monarchs!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 November 2018 - 06:11 PM)

Too late. They can smell your fear.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2018 - 04:10 PM)

Nobody say anything and you'll be safe from the mob.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 November 2018 - 03:41 PM)

It used to be

@  Arazyr : (16 November 2018 - 02:05 PM)

I would agree.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 01:15 PM)

I say yes, but I imagine many would disagree with me.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

Ben Yee uploaded his full/BWTF site review for Titans Return Sergeant Kup. With plenty of photos.

The alt mode continues to photograph well, but, yeah, definitely some awkwardness in that robot mode.

I'm pleasantly surprised PM Prime's head wasn't reused as it's certainly close enough to pass as Kup. I like the colors but would have preferred a teal head.

Torn on this - he needs some paint on his forearms but that would mess up the coloration of the truck mode. 

 

Somehow despite seeing G1 Kup almost every day I didn't draw the connection that the gray helmet was accurate to that toy.

 

This may be a wait-and-see for Takara.

Are those foot pegs at the front of the combined weapons' Titan Master space?

 

Otherwise, Kup is looking better here. I like the facesculpt much better than the 2010 iteration, and the vehicle mode looks great. I can live with the robot mode proportions, but I just can't get past the colours. If it looked more muted like on the packaging render, I'd be perfectly okay with it.


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

Can't help but suspect this is one of those toys that photographs poorly in botmode.

I think this is definately a 'wait for Takara' for me, since Like Blurr he just looks very very wrong. I guess He's less 'wrong' then Blurr is since he looks like he might be in Marvel comic colors rather then... I still don't know what they were thinking with Blurr.

Yes, for some reason the colors didn't/don't look "right" on TR Kup, but with the comparison shots, actually fairly accurate to the G1 toy.

 

Like others, I may go for the Takara version. However, I assume TR Kup is in the next wave that'll probably be out in Feb/March/April while Takara's version probably won't come until the end of June or later.

 

So, assuming case ratios mean it makes sense to buy Kup along with his wavemates, I'll pick up Hasbro's Kup. (But may also get Takara's later if it's much better).

Blurr seems to be based on the toy.  Just that they quantity of colors is heavily stacked in the favor of that greenish blue.  Which really isn't representative of the color they were trying to replicate.

Yeah I think they took everything above the eyes and stretched it so that it would cover Flintlock's butt.

 

All of that should be squatter:

Yeah, I've been picking and choosing Hasbro and Takara releases for this line, this one looks like something I'll likely want to import. It's hurting for some more paint. Flintlock too, I'm eager to see what Takara can do with that grumpy face.

I like it from the waist-down, but the top part look oddly stretched/flat and the arms just kill it for me (too skinny, not enough paint).

Kup never really did have an interesting looking robot mode anyway. Twas his personality thay made him memorable more than anything.

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.
