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

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 November 2018 - 06:12 PM)

It was, we're just humoring you.

@  Arazyr : (20 November 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I was wondering if that was just me...

And we are back after that round of Forum downtime.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:30 AM)

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."

@  Paladin : (19 November 2018 - 07:02 AM)

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.

@  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.

@  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)

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

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

@  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.

@  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.

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.
