We're not actually back, this is all a dream.

It was, we're just humoring you.

And we are back after that round of Forum downtime.

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.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:22 AM)

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."

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.

@  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.

@  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)

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.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

So a reputable source at TFW2005 (who has given us listings from TRU since at least wave 3 of Combiner Wars all the way up to the recent Titans Return figures, minus Deluxe Misfire, Windblade, Twin Twist and Slugslinger, but with Titan Masters Optimus Prime and Toraizer who were apparently intended to be released in the same wave as Ramhorn) tells us that TRU has a thirteenth TLK Deluxe listed under the previously unknown working name "Saturn Rings".
http://www.tfw2005.c...5#post-14767749

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.


Also, and this is pure maintenance, the last mystery UPC barcode from the list I was sent from a source at Toys"R"Us months ago (which led to me digging up those Amazon placeholder listings in the first place) has been identified as belonging to a character with the code name "Extra Terrestrial"... which, as it turns out, has the same Hasbro product code number as Leader Class Dragonstorm from the Amazon Spain listing.

I really, really like the '07 Leader Optimus mold, but I'm not sure what it needed was chrome feet.

New photos of Voyager "Decepticon Nitro" (whom TFW refers to by his onscreen name "Nitro Zeus"):

And because the Hasbro product code number "C2405" is tampographed onto his leg, we can now say with full certainty that Voyager Bumblebee isn't happening.

Cannot wait for this dude. Unless there's a chance he'll be in more interesting colors later on, but I'll take my chances with this one and wait to be surprised by a Platinum or whatever set eventually -- if even that.

Yeah it's a great figure on its own. I like that it's sort of a bridge between the style of figures we were getting in the late UT and the more fiddly and technical movie lines.

The ROTF Prime is accurate, but the '07 one is chunky and fun.

So, Nitro Zeus' gun is the jet's engine, his other arm weapon is the nosecone split open, and the wings curl up to form the turbines on his back. That is all really cool! The legs could stand to be a teeny bit smaller, but they do a fine job evoking the jet intakes as is. I'm not sure when was the last time I was excited about how a bot's vehicle parts were laid out.

It's not show accurate, but I do like that they went for a more loose interpretation of his head instead of just copying Shockwave's. Lets NZ be more distinct.

 

 

Now how hard will it be to find him?

The head actually reminds me a bit more of Movieverse Soundwave's in its shape instead.

 

Like take Soundwave's headsculpt, replace his visor and mouthplate with a single cyclopean eye, and there you go.

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.
