@  Maximus Ambus : (16 December 2019 - 02:13 AM)

Is BWTF down?

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:05 PM)

The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

@  Rycochet : (13 December 2019 - 11:56 AM)

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

Over the years I've made various bits of Transformer fan art, and since I'm easily amused by my own stuff I thought I'd repost some of it here, piece by piece.

The thing I love about this is the halved brain. It's just absurd and wonderful.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Kreons were going to do "historic" versions of classic characters, something terribly cliché that I always wanted to see in a Transformers show. Because, seriously, who doesn't want to see WWI-era Starscream and Shockwave?

Man, I meant to post here more often, but somehow nearly a month went by...

 

This one's a bit different. I've been doing a series of Genestealer Hybrids based on various fictional aliens, and one of them's a Transformer.

Goodness am I bad at keeping this updated...

 

TARANTULAS REIMAGINED!

So I've always been a fan of what-ifs, reinterpretations, "Bizarro"/opposite versions, and the like, and after seeing Kreon "Warriors" and Thomas Perkins' stuff I got to doodling alter-versions of... Tarantulas for some reason. I dunno, guess I've always really like his design, and you don't really see much BW fan art which is a shame.

 

First up, as he might have looked in the 80s cartoon

80s_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8izm1i

He looks vaguely like Unicron, you say. Pffft, yeah right...

 

And Ninja Tarantulas

ninja_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8izm

The Beast Wars cartoon portrayed Tarantulas as a treacherous, cannibalistic, mad scientist, but the toys sold him as a dull-witted ninja. So I went a little nuts with the idea. I was thinking he doesn't transform so much as he poofs into smoke and re-poofs as a spider (this IS supposed to be a weird parallel dimension Tarantulas, after all), although his limbs ended up looking like they could do a General Grievous-esque split to create 8 legs, maybe even each holding a kunai to complete the look.

 

More to come!

I suppose he comes from a universe where people are biased towards bugs instead of mammals. Like, this world's Maximals would all be weird generic beasts that evoke rhinos and rats and cheetahs, while the Predacon arthropods are all fairly accurate.

Cosmic Horror Tarantulas!

cosmic_tarantulas_by_monster_man_08-d8k5

Could it be he has a far darker heritage than expected?
Could it be he tapped into the power of the Vok and is slowly becoming just a head?

Could it be he's a boss from some Nintendo game?

The multiverse may never know....

Last one in this series!

 

reverse_tarantulas____dipteras__by_monst

This Tarantulas... isn't! In fact, he's not even called "Tarantulas", rather he's Dipteras. He's the Owlman to Tarantulas' Batman (or vice versa I suppose), the polar opposite who has an entirely different identity. The Heroic Dipteras, as you my have guessed, turns into a humble fly, the natural prey of spiders. That might seem backwards, but from his perspective "our" Beast Wars is the sick twisted perversion of everything he loves.

 

 

And because I really liked the idea:

reverse_beast_wars_by_monster_man_08-d8l

As you may have guess, Dinocon's beast mode is inspired by the "Fighting Dinosaurs" fossil and Hailstorm by "The Ant and The Grasshopper" fable. Bugikin's a pill bug since that was the least intimidating bug I could think of. The colors are strictly swaps of the original's primary and secondary colors; the resemblances to Rhinox and Sky-Byte are just an odd coincidence.

For me, the first thing I thought was this version says "Unicron is coming" or "the spawn of Unicron remembers". Maybe I'm just really wanting Game of Thrones to start.

Taking a spin on the whole "Thirteen Original Transformers" idea, 'cause it's sorta becoming a thing or somethin'.

 

Liege Maximo:

sketchformers__liege_maximo_by_monster_m

Personally, I prefer the idea that the Transformers were made by the Quintessons, and that the Thirteen were merely the first* bots who decided their creators sucked and needed to be booted off the damn planet. As such, the Liege ("a" Liege, actually...) takes some design cues from the Quints themselves -- namely the "floating torso and tentacles" look. Maximo turns into a Quintesson Warship . A CLEAR warship. That's probably not tactically sound, but eh. Neither is a giant corkscrew for a ship.

*or maybe they were just the first successful bots...

 

Alpha Trion:

sketchformers__alpha_trion_by_monster_ma

A young Alpha Trion. I always liked how he visibly aged and went from a fairly plain mech to full Barbarian King, so I tried for something in between. He turns into a forklift of some alien variety; besides fitting into that "Pre-Autobots were all manual labor droids" idea, it lends itself for a 'loss of innocence' moment where the slaves realize a part of their anatomy could be used to intentionally harm their oppressors.

Onyx:

onyx_by_monster_man_08-dbfl93j.jpg

Onyx is sort of the quintessential Beast Transformer, a rad centaur-dragon with an animal head for a helmet. Naturally, I had to go the extra mile, making him all weirdly organic and gory and gross. Since the obvious dragon would've been totally redundant, Onyx instead transforms into the Dweller in the Depths -- or at least *a* giant, tentacled, robotic worm monster. Cybertron's had at least three...
