Is the plural of Batman Batmans or Batmen?

Anyone else excited about that Prime 1 Studio BW Megatron? It looks amazing

@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 07:43 PM)

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 February 2017 - 07:09 PM)

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

hascon

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:04 PM)

It would be pretty peculiar to have the arm guys be different and the leg guys be the same, especially in light of Grimlock being one guy who forms both legs.

 

I'm not saying it's impossible, and I even noted that the models have wheels on both sides of the legs above, but I think the evidence - especially that bus artwork - comes down on the side of a four-person combiner.

 

Although it was called a five-bot combiner when we first learned about it...

Extra Grimlock points if the arms and legs work like RiD Landfill.

 

Well, I guess it would be the opposite of Landfill - the legs being one guy and the arms being two.

But Menasor's two legs are identical. Surely a five limb combiner wouldn't have this?

Yeah, each leg/foot looks like the left and right half of a truck and trailer that have been split down the middle a la G1 Motormaster's own legs/feet.

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.

Character-wise I'm REALLY glad Optimus didn't stick his mug into this combiner. 

 

On the other hand it does make one wish for Drift, Optimus, Fixit and Windblade as a weird combiner of their own.

They are? The right leg you side the side, the left leg you see the front, don't look the same to me, but those are different sides, so hard to judge. That right leg however very much looks like a complete car (not truck, not semi cab, specifically car) on it's own to me.

 

It would be pretty peculiar to have the arm guys be different and the leg guys be the same, especially in light of Grimlock being one guy who forms both legs.

I basically agree with everything there, except the evidence doesn't come down on a side for me yet. I'm undecided.

who the heck is Shocknado formed from?


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Optimus is basically normal but folds his arms into his torso for extra Beefy. Drift and Windblade turn into arms. And Fixit gets worn like a hat.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

So... how come Ultrabee has got these Menasor/Viking horns in the art but not the toy render?

 

 

And "Shocknado" conjures up a far cooler mental image than just purple version of the jet combiner guys.
