@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

Does anyone know of a browser that doesn't force tabs on you? Just... any sodding browser that doesn't have tabs.

@  Telly : (16 November 2017 - 01:59 AM)

I really hope so. All of my high school drawings and notes (Hand-written notes! God, I'm old.) from girls are in a chest in the attic of my parents house. I'll check when I visit!

@  MEDdMI : (15 November 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Do you still have those drawings?

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 06:31 PM)

I think lesbian ninjas is just an unmitigated good idea. *shrug*

@  Devcon : (15 November 2017 - 05:56 PM)

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:12 PM)

It's my crowning Allspark achievement! You're welcome.

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:05 PM)

"Someone" being me. No mystery to it, I used to draw a lot during class when I was in high school. I came up with lesbian ninjas, which were a specialized team of assassins with amazing hair and impeccable style. I scanned some of my drawings and mentioned them a few times on the ezboard 17 years ago, and people seemed to like the idea.

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Thanks in any case!

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Oh, wow. That is ages ago. 

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:03 PM)

ages ago meaning when the spark was still on ezboard

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:02 PM)

i think maybe it was part of a title of a movie someone posted ages ago and the "lesbian ninja" part stood out and people just latched on to it. please note this is possibly totally and completely wrong cause my memory is terrible anymore

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I don't think it's a fandom thing, I think it's an Allspark thing. Or that's been my perception. Mayhem has some lesbian ninja regulars now but I think the reference is much older. = ] 

@  Robowang : (15 November 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Who knows. I always thought it was stupid.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

What is this fandom's deal with lesbian ninjas? Is it some fantheory about Nightbird or something?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 November 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Huh my phone didn't even alert me for some reason. Guess it only does on the Mayhem Discord Hangouts??

@  BlackMax : (14 November 2017 - 09:41 PM)

Telly, you are FIRED as my PR agent. :D

@  Telly : (14 November 2017 - 09:05 PM)

you all dont know what you missed. there was fun. there were games. lesbian ninjas. tang and even a couple human sacrifices.

Have the movies even had a fart joke? I guess there's Jetfire's parachute from ROTF, but that's more of an "old people can't control their shits" joke.

The Amazon listings for Jupiter were updated - it's the Optimus we've seen before. I think these photos are the best look we've had at the figure so far:

If it's a five-bot combiner for $34.99 it's going to be small. Maybe a Legion class Dinobot combiner?

 

A BH Abominus re-deco could probably be shoehorned into this line pretty easily. Or PCC Grimstone, I suppose.

Okay, so we have enough info now to decode most of these, plus some extras from here.

It turns out that Prime, Bee and Grimlock have different codenames depending on whether the figure is a new mould or not.

Prime: old = Four Moons, new = Jupiter
Bee: old = Gas Giant, new = Saturn
Grimlock: old = Lunar Eclipse, new = Moon

Technically can't say "Moon" is Grimlock 100%, since there's only one data point, but it's obvious if you notice the links between Prime and Bee's two names.

Deluxe W1
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Mars = Barricade
Gamma Ray = Berserker
Shooting Star = Slash

Deluxe W2
Nova = Drift
Comet = Steelbane
Earth = Sqweeks
Hot Gas = Slug

Deluxe W3
Zodiac = Cogman
Gravity = Crosshairs
Saturn = Bumblebee
Lightning = Strafe

Voyager W1
Lunar Eclipse = Grimlock
Jupiter = Optimus Prime

Voyager W2
Pluto = Megatron
Supernova = Hound

Voyager W3
Gamma Beam Grey = Nitro
Sun = Scorn

Leader W1
Optimus Prime
Megatron

Legion W1
Four Moons = Optimus Prime
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Lunar Eclipse = Grimlock
Mars = Barricade

Legion W2
Pluto = Megatron
Gravity = Crosshairs
Nova = Drift

Legion future waves
Hound
Dragonstorm

1-Step W1
Gas Giant = Bumblebee
Four Moons = Optimus Prime
Mars = Barricade
Supernova = Hound

1-Step future waves
Drift
Grimlock
Megatron

Armor Knight W1
Jupiter = Optimus Prime
Moon = Grimlock
Saturn = Bumblebee

Armor Knight future waves
Hound
Megatron

So doesn't that mean the third Movie MP is Barricade? Wasn't it Mars? And everyone assumed Bee was Mars and couldn't figure out who Saturn was?

Yup. MPs are Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, so Prime, Bee and Barricade.

The only real mysteries left are the TRU exclusives:

2-Pack Legion Figure ($15)
Deluxe Figure ($20)
5-Bot Figure Combiner & Slug ($35)
2-Pack Cybertron Deluxe ($40)
Figure Cybertron Planet ($150)

5-Bot Figure Combiner & Slug ($35)

 

Since it's with Slug, I'd it's a repaint of the PCC Dinobots & Grimstone. So maybe 1 TLK toy I might buy.

I am 100% down with an MP Barricade. I love HA Barricade, so I'd love for it to be TLK Barricade, but I think '07 Barricade is probably more likely, and it's the Barricade design I like somewhat more anyway, so that's fine.

 

Barricade.

$30 is easily believable for a PCC 5-pack current day MSRP. This being a movie item and an exclusive at TRU and $35 seems a decently likely price for something like that.

I don't doubt it's Grimstone given how TLK's shaping up, but PCCs wouldn't budge at $20. Even half-off sales barely got the line past the first wave. Nearly doubling the price... might as well make them part of the shelves.

 

 

Anyway, this toyline's looking dreadfully uninteresting. I was hoping "Berserker" meant we'd get more Decepticons than just Megatron and Barricade, 'cause they can apparently justify using an entirely new mold on a Crankcase redux, but, welp...

If we see any of the "missing" characters like Hot Rod, Onslaught, etc. I figure it'll probably be as 1-Steps. If this line goes anything like AOE we're likely to get more them than anything else. Of course, they equally might just pad the assortment with redecoes of all the AOE Dinobot 1-Steps...
