Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

Yup, once he dings 50, gotta gather/craft up that CP160 gear for him.  The last couple cahracters I leveled up I actually pre-gathered their sets so I had them mostly ready to go on hitting 50.  Still had a few holes here and there, but easily filled once I started going.

Well, I like Mechanical Acuity for him, and can craft it on my main crafter, but will need to hit a few more skyshards to grab the max level in Clothing (it's a Medium armor dude).

I like one aspect of the Summerset tutorial.  "Wait, if that was all in my mind, how come all the stuff I looted is still with me?" is answered by the NPC.  Usually they don't bother explaining how you can loot a memory or a Spinner tale.

One annoying thing: if you start the main Summerset quest on an existing character from the Collectibles window and take a ship like it suggests rather than take the pre-added wayshrine, it dumps you on the opposite side of the island from Shimmerene.

Shimmerene isn't a full-service town, I guess they figured existing characters would be happier starting off at the main city with a bank and basic housing and stuff, then ride across the zone to start the storyline?  Summerset doesn't feel very hard to get across, scale seems to be a bit inconsistent between zones when comparing to the world map (plus there's a road all the way across, no mountain ranges or volcanoes in the way).

So I wasn't sure if I could get a dog since Runa already brought home a fox. But I found Meeko and brought him home and Runa wanted to keep him. So now I have a fox and a dog for pets.

...

And

...

He barks

...

a lot!

Any why the heck doesn't Lucia want a pet? Runa's got two, Lucia has yet to ask for one. Poor kid!

Also, how do you pronounce Lucia? All this time I've been saying Loo-see-ah. But looking at it again, I'm not sure if maybe it's supposed to be Loo-sha.

Now you've got me wondering how long it's been since I've let my PS+ run out. I quit playing soon after buying the werewolf dlc and leveling up to where I could turn others. It's been a while.

Even with the new improvements, I find the home decorating system tedious enough (mainly avoiding weird clipping) that I haven't done anything with my houses that's worth showing off.  I did finally put stuff in my Psijic Mansion, mostly to get it out of my storage.

I want to build a house themed around my ice witch Khajiit too, but there's no properties that have snow, really.  I considered the snowglobe, but it didn't feel right, and the other Nord houses don't seem to fit as well.  There's the witch hut over in Hag Fen, but I'd have to buy a bunch of snow from the decorations store to give it a proper winter look, so I'm iffy on that.  Been considering maybe that orc keep, but haven't jumped on it yet for the same reason(snow decorations cost crowns).

Elder Scrolls: Blades is out for people who signed up for early access, and I've been playing it for the last few days. The graphics are fantastic for a mobile game, and I'm a sucker for games where you build up your home base which is basically what this is centered around.

The major gripe so far seems to be around the chest mechanic - if you obtain a chest, it goes to a chest menu where you have to unlock it (which can take up to 6 hours) and then open it. Once you accumulate a few chests, you realise they're going to take you several days to open, and if your chest storage is full of silver chests (3 hours to open) you can't pick up any of the gold chests which must have better stuff.

My main gripe is that the game keeps spending my gems for me. Gems can be gotten for free, but they're also the in-game currency that you can buy in the store. You can use them to speed up opening chests, and also speed up crafting or tempering equipment. If a piece of equipment is being tempered, and you go to the blacksmith and try to repair the equipment you're actually using, the game seems to, without warning, use gem to complete the tempering when you hit the repair button.

ESO:Elseweyr is out for PC now.  I've made a magicka Necromancer, though I'll probably do the Elseweyr storyline on my Khajiit thief from Hew's Bane first.  I think I'm satisfied with my necro's look though for now.

 

Behold, Scatters-The-Bones:

skyqdSj.jpg

 

(I originally wanted to name her "Reads-The-Bones" but that was already taken.  So was Tosses-, Throws-, Rattles-, Speaks-With- and Listens-To-. I considered "Watches-The-Bones" but Scatters seemed to flow better.  You know, Speaks-With-Bones would have been PERFECT too. :( )

 

Also here's a quick way to see if a particular name has been taken without spending time in the character creator first.  Take a note of who you have on your ignore list, then try adding the character name you want to it.  If it exists, the account that owns it will be added to ignore(whence why you note who was on it first so you can remove the accounts you add in this way, later.) If it doesn't exist, you'll get an error message, and you can then go make your character!

I finished Greymoor, but haven't done Markarth yet.  I've been waiting for all the bugs the patch introduced to be fixed before I re-up on ESO Plus, and been using the time instead to run random dungeons for transmute crystals and to fill out that part of the sticker book.  Since the hotfix a couple days ago broke the dungeon finder queue though, I've been working on antiquities instead the last couple nights.  If it's still not fixed might give Battlegrounds a try for some AP so I can get Rapids back on a couple characters and get some PvP sets for the sticker book.

 

I'm holding judgement until I finish Markarth but right now I'd rank Greymoor the lowest of the four chapters.  I don't consider it bad per se, but it's just, well, there.  Vampires and Blackreach don't really excite me, and I was a bigger fan of the major NPCs you worked with in Elseweyr and the to a lesser extent the Morrowind-Clockwork City-Summerset trilogy.  There also so far hasn't been any big lore-dumps on the level of Elseweyr(which we've not seen since Arena) or Summerset(Altmer and more Tower lore). The Grey Host itself(and the E/W Skyrim division) was about the only new things it brought to the table, and Greymoor castle wasn't really expanded on enough either beyond a mention of how it seemed to attract others, and was just always there.  Elsweyr also has a satisfying ending on its own, but Greymoor's ending was very much "To Be Continued" and I kind of hope they don't do that on 2021's chapter.  Leave the loose ends for the Q4 DLC, but at least make sure the main plotline is done!

 

Sticker book and Antiquities are both great though - more lore, some decorations(which let me make a few tweaks on the house in the video above), and the sticker book gives another thing to collect without exploding your bank, as well as makes it easy to share hard-to-get pieces between characters.

I starting do some of the "sticker book"  for the sets, managed to clean out out my storage a bit some since my bank has been maxed out forever

 

Not sure If i could rate any of them per se since I liked various things they have added with each part. Sadly I am stuck on pets but managed to stop buying them all
