i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

@  Fenix Twilight : (17 December 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 06:16 PM)

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 06:10 PM)

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

I'm dealing with a black/grey robot and a red/black robot.

@  Shrug : (17 December 2017 - 05:44 PM)

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 05:41 PM)

Don't worry, it was grammatically correct, it just wasn't "fluent". :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:29 PM)

Scheiße.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

@  ILoveDinobot : (17 December 2017 - 12:34 PM)

And top top it all off, my employer will offer a one-off bonus for moving to permanent late shift, and another annual bonus if I stay on permanent late shift for an entire year.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:10 AM)

That's basically my personal dream shift.

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 11:09 AM)

No more getting up early. Also, every work week will be from Monday to Friday, with the weekends off.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:48 PM)

@  unitremover : (16 December 2017 - 11:47 PM)

Yeah, TLJ felt a lot more mindful about when it broke out the quips/jokes than I think the Marvel movie comparison implies

@  2017 : (16 December 2017 - 09:35 PM)

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

I had the opposite reaction to TR Fort Max, where I bought one and was, like, "Ehhhhh...  I think I may have just wasted a chunk of cash here."

My issue with both Titans so far is someone clearly just designed a giant action figure and then added in half hearted transformation afterwards. Maximus 'base/city' mode is just the figure laying down on its back. You're doing something wrong when a 30 years older toy has a better looking city and ship modes.

Blazemaster from Revenge of the Fallen. Everyone hated the mold and I expected it to suck, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a decent figure that just needed some tightening up at the hips to be a proper horrible stilt-monster.

And leaving that big Metroplex joint in the chest while changing the rest of it was just god damn weird.  And making zero effort to make those legs fold up further despite them being just big empty boxes.  The sound gimmick doesn't really make up for it.  Titan Metroplex pretty much does everything better.

 

Sharkticon Megatron looked like such a great toy. It was not.

Not helped by it having misassembled shoulders, either.  On the other hand, I expected FE Bulkhead to be some kind of nightmare from pictures of the transformation, and that ended up being one of my favorites of the entire line.

I always heard Beast Changer, aka Savage Noble, was an awful toy. I picked one up last year and I love it. Awesome dragon monster thing? Check. Demon Werewolf mode? Check. Easy but fun transformation? Check. Definitely a cool toy.

There's a section of the fandom that considers every Beast Machines figure an awful toy.  I love that line.  It's like the most risk-taking line in Transformers history.

 

Which I'll tie back around to the topic on the grounds that I thought most of the Maximals were going to suck from the pictures, but here I am, still liking the hell out of most them.  Except Geckobot.  That toy still sucks.  And looks like it sucks.

Indeed, some hate Beast Machines with a religious fury.  You can find online arguments about how Generations Tankor should have been OG toy accurate instead of show accurate because that show they never watched was horrible so the True© Tankor was the toy.  Only just so they can be as contrary as possible.

I'm just bummed that they could've just scaled-up Tank Drone, and I would've liked that more than the Generations deluxe.

I love all the Vehicons(Even Blast Charge) and have very little love for the Maximals (Save for Night Slashy Cheetor) I wont hide that fact and for the record I bought a great many of them so its not just me saying so for no reason

 

I simply do like what they did and how badly the Maximals got nurfed in show and in toy form

Nurfed as in tone down the there firepower thanks to the shows forunners deciding that. but also Nurfing in a since that that the designers where hand tied as well

 

Some of the Maximals outside the show design where good Buzzsaw, the Shark guy, and few others where better off but man oh man show characters suffered ...poor Silverbolt

RotF Mixmaster, Voyager size. Such a fiddly ball-ache. Robot mode is suitable terrifying and the truck mode is really good, but the effort it takes to go from one to the other... it's one of exactly two toys I will probably never willingly try to play with again.

RID Steeljaw. Not a good way to start a line, and the fact that it was the first (and for months, only) Decepticon figure in the mainline was one of the main reasons a lot of people gave up on the line. Kinda glad I slogged through that and the other early stuff - Quillfire and Scorponok are really good, Bisk is downright amazing, Soundwave looks fantastic, and I'm really hyped for Blurr.

I was not expecting to love TR Kup even a quarter as much as I do. I thought the first pictures we saw made him look abysmal, but bought him as he seemed like he'd look fun crewed by Dia-nauts. He's now one of my favourite Titans Return toys; he's just so fun and surprisingly nice looking in-hand.

IMG_0189.JPG

But the biggest surprise of my trip to Asia has to be this guy; looks badass as all hell, laden with effective-yet-unobtrusive gimmicks, really rather posable, and I just kinda love how his upper legs transform:
