@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

Reminds me of when my nephew was one year old and my sister got him a puppy. He couldn't say puppy properly and it sounded like poppy, so Poppy is what they called her.

@  Arazyr : (15 October 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Yeah. I thought it had some interesting informational articles too.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 01:59 PM)

does anyone else miss the ToyFare magazine? I just read it for the pictures and jokes rather than using it as a serious guide for buying and selling toys.

Last night, playing Mario Kart with my daughter, I misread Baby Peach as "Bobby Peach".

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Nuremberg Toy Fair, home of the Notorious BGM, has started. As per usual, we might get a press release for a flagship mainline toy, we might get descriptions from attendees, we might get blurry photos.

NY Toy Fair is the weekend of the 18th.

It's honestly really exciting going into this with no leaks of what the new figures will look like!

Bald German Man returns but disguised as non-Bald German Man.

 

Guessing we'll see the last couple waves of TR, the first  waves of Last Knight stuff. Specifically, we'll probably see Blitzwing, Octane and Overlord. Maybe Trypticon, and confirmation of the next Generations subline.

This is a bit early much Power of the Primes stuff, I think. They might bring up the Prime vote but nothing toy-y, I'd guess.

Individual toys at NYTF, I'm thinking:

Titan Masters:
- Optimus Prime
- Toraizer
- Ramhorn

Legends:
- Cosmos
- Seaspray

Deluxe:
- Crosshairs
- Misfire
- Slugslinger

Voyager:
- Octane
- Blitzwing

Leader:
- Overlord

Titan:
- Trypticon

Then we'll probably see the last TR stuff at SDCC, and get a full reveal of the first POTP stuff at NYCC.

There are a bunch of Simba toys that have been revealed for Nuremburg.

 

Hot Wheels/Matchbox style cars based on Robots in Disguise Optimus, Bumblebee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, Drift, Steeljaw... and even Grimlock as a T-Rex shaped dragster/hot rod! There are about a dozen different color schemes for each car, and some having a light up gimmick.

 

There's single packs, 2-packs featuring the car and a PVC robot mode of the character, 3-packs, 5-packs... any way you can imagine them getting released. The robot mode PVCs exist for each of the cars, as well as Underbyte and Slipstream.

 

Ad then there's a play set scaled to those cars, an RC Drift that can convert to robot mode, some Laser tag or roleplaying weapons and vests... Just... Lots of RiD.

I expect to see a painted Trypticon and Blitzwing.

 

Mainly because I've seen the former and a very crappy picture of the latter's deco sheet.

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.

I expect people to complain about how it was a huge letdown because Hasbro didn't reveal a minimum of twenty-three (23) previously unrumored 100% perfect 3D recreations of G1 cartoon models and/or MTMTE/LL designs perfectly scaled for The Classics Shelf.
