If you stop for gas/directions shortly before getting there and the attendant is unusually creepy and/or inbred, turn back

@  Noideaforaname : (17 August 2018 - 09:49 PM)

Booked a cheap cabin in the stormy mountains filled with alcohol. This is either a great find or the start of a horror film.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 August 2018 - 06:55 PM)

I loved those commercials...

Paladin drank Bud Ice once in the 90s, and the penguins have been after him ever since.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 August 2018 - 06:36 AM)

That never goes away. I still have little panic attacks when I see water where it's not supposed to be. I've lived through enough leaking roofs, broken pipes and floods to know it could be a very bad sign.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 August 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Despite my parents explaining that to me when I was a kid, I still half-panic every time I see condensation dripping.

@  Shrug : (15 August 2018 - 08:23 PM)

Yup. If the water happens to be on the left or right of the vehicle, make sure to remember that. That way it's real easy to tell if it's something else dripping.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:15 PM)

So I checked online and it appears... it's totally normal, that's apparently condensed water from the air conditioning.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Phew!" For a moment I thought I was in real trouble because when I arrived at home and drove my car into the garage, there was a trail of large wet spots.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

The showerhead exploded off the pipe this morning. So yeah... think it's going to be a "great" day.

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

I knew that my father was getting old when he finally posted a facebook status that was clearly a search term.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

could've been worse then :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:03 PM)

So when he tried to pry into his daughter's love life, he ended up posting numerous search terms relating to "hot boy".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2018 - 12:02 PM)

I once saw this comedy episode wherein a dad mistakenly thought the status bar on Facebook was the search bar.

@  The Wadapan : (12 August 2018 - 11:41 AM)

@  Waspinator : (11 August 2018 - 04:45 PM)

I like how that game had all kinds of transformation attacks. Some of them may not have made much sense, but they looked cool.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2018 - 11:33 AM)

Menasor kinda did that in the Devastation video game. He'd split into the Stunticons and run you over.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 August 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Megatron screams "decepticons attack", the constructicons form devastator, who then screams "Multi-vector assault mode" and breaks back into invdividual bots to attack seperately.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Imagine: an armada battle between Omega Supreme and Tidal Wave.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:20 PM)

Some TF creator should apply it to multi-component Transformers.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 August 2018 - 11:19 PM)

"Multi-vector assault mode" is such a cool term from Star Trek: Voyager.

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 August 2018 - 04:24 PM)

Most things would be pretty cold after two hundred and seventy degrees.

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:39 PM)

(Because F = (9C/5) + 32)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 02:38 PM)

Oh yeah, five times thirty is TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY! My bad...

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 01:15 PM)

Given the weather we've been having this summer, anything under 30 is a friggen god send.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2018 - 12:53 PM)

Surely "slightly under 30" doesn't pass for "cold" unless you live in the tropics.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:20 PM)

... or we're finally facing the end game of global warming, but no one will care by then.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 12:18 PM)

Generally speaking, if the number when referring to temperature is less than 50, you're probably not talking to an american.

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 11:13 AM)

86 F

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:07 AM)

(30 C = 68 F)

@  RichardT1977 : (10 August 2018 - 11:06 AM)

And is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

@  Benbot : (10 August 2018 - 09:13 AM)

What continent are you in?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2018 - 06:41 AM)

oh wow... even with humidity today it won't break 30. It's going to be so... COLD...

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:58 AM)

@Msol Make sure he shares. My bro hardly ever let me play with his TFs. I even offered to let him play with my dolls/ponies, too.

@  MEDdMI : (08 August 2018 - 06:37 AM)

:p My brother was a bigger pain as a kid. As adults, I'm the bigger pain now.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 August 2018 - 06:31 AM)

Congrats man, and good luck. My personal experience is that little girls are pains in the ass clean through 30.

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 10:59 PM)

Yup yup. Now my 2.5yo will need to learn to share all his TFs...

@  MEDdMI : (07 August 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Msol Really? Congratulations! :)

@  Msol : (07 August 2018 - 08:48 PM)

Ack! We're having a girl!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 August 2018 - 06:16 PM)

It did include a Transmetal 2 hyena with a giant sawblade in his back.

@  unluckiness : (07 August 2018 - 08:56 AM)

but does it BURN BURN BURN TO THE GROUND?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Okay, I don't buy doubles and I would have gone after a dozen of those.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2018 - 10:32 PM)

I still think Beast Wars should have included a Transmetal Maximal hyena with a motorcycle-based semi-third mode, of Junkion descent, named Lafftrax

@  Pennpenn : (06 August 2018 - 03:24 AM)

Well if they did the same thing as Roadbattletrapslash (and if they didn't what's the point?) it'd be two new molds, but still.

I mentioned the head gimmick and my son has decided he wants a Nitro Zues now to be a body for his Titan Master Apeface.

-ZacWilliam, so I guess I'll be applying some purple paint.

I plan on getting a few Nitros and Cogmen to use as Decepticon and Autobot transtectors for the body-less TMs.

It occurs to me that Nitro could also pass pretty well for a member of the People's Liberation Army Mecha Force. Just needs a red redeco - or headcanon that the gray is a super prototype, or something.

EDIT: ... whose Hasbro product code number and UPC barcode are way higher than those for any other figure in the line, so it's not like this is a missing wave 3 figure or anything. More like "the first wave 4 figure" kind of deal there.

 

I actually wonder if Hasbro will just roll "Premiere Edition" as a recurrent "movie Black series" rather than actually END it in January.  Especially with new Transformers films due next year AND the year after.  

If it's WW2 Bumblebee, drop in a couple retools for a dragon knight and Decepticon, and it'd be a solid wave 4 to carry into spring before Bumblebee Movie Premiere toys are slated to hit.  If nothing else, it will give ample time for retailers to sell off older inventory.

 

That's largely how they've handled Star Wars Black since 2015.

Hmm. Depending on size, Nitro's head would be almost perfect for a custom I want to try. Which means I'll need a new head for him.

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.

We'll see. I don't recall extreme issue finding any of the AoE deluxe and Voyager figures, but I do recall them hitting later than expected (didn't see wave 3 until well into the fall, despite the late summer release).

I think some need to remember the movie only JUST came out...and we're stuck with this line up through Christmas, at least.

People want him for troopbuilding, for Thunderwing, because he was a fairly memorable Con from the movie, and because he simply looks good. And he's in the third (last?) wave, meaning you have to hope people payed the inflated price and cleared out all those Grimlocks and Optimuses first.

 

I mean, I'm fairly hopeful I'll find him in stores, but I'm sure it'll be one of those cases where he appears for one week then he's gone forever.

Stock photos of 1-Step Turbo Changer Cogman from UK retailer Smyths:

1-Step_Turbo_Changer_wave_3_Cogman_robot.jpg 1-Step_Turbo_Changer_wave_3_Cogman_alternate.jpg

They also have a listing for Scorn, but it has photos of Hound instead.

Meanwhile, there's a listing for Voyager Scorn which has the correct photos but is named "Generations Titans Return Voyager Blitzwing and Hazard" instead (despite there already been a proper listing for Blitzwing).

Scorn is really causing Smyths problems, methinks...

Doesn't look like Hasbro stock photos, more like actual in-hand photos by Distribuidora de Brinquedos Hobby themselves.

Also from Distribuidora de Brinquedos Hobby: The Autobot Sqweeks Voice Changer Mask.

Stock photos for the Megatron and Bumblebee masks (which are presumably wave 1 of the assortment) have previously been seen via Toys"R"Us UK, whereas the Sqweeks mask (which presumably debuts in wave 2) was previously only glimpsed at Toy Fair.
