Thirty Helens agree.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2019 - 09:41 PM)

People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Wouldn't pillow fights be like slapping each other with meat?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Feathertron?

@  MEDdMI : (20 February 2019 - 08:34 AM)

Who gives the orders in cyberwarfare?

@  Pennpenn : (20 February 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I wonder what Megatron would end up in that context?

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Take another shot Wonko.

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

so now we have shows on abc, netflix and soon freeform. i know netflix has referenced its own shows and the films. have they ever mentioned aos? aos has referenced the films. have they mentioned the netflix shows (i havent really watched since the middle of season 2)? im just curious how interconnected all this will be/remain seeing how its spreading over networks (i.e. they dont mention shows on other networks cause its a different network)

 

im also curious as to just how huge this thing is going to get before it implodes

 

as for the show itself, ive never been a big fan of the characters. but if its on a day i dont work and i remember ill give it a go

None of the movies have referenced the shows. There have been neat little tie ins and lead to's with AoS. No sho has impacted the films, and most references these days are to the NYC attack.

The only AoS reference that I can remember in a Netflix show was the Dogs of Water biker gang in DD S2.

 

AoS made a couple very minor Netflix references; the Hell's Kitchen gang war is seen on a news scrawl, and one of the exploding bullets from Luke Cage was used this season.

 

If this show is going to make any explicit connections at all, it'll likely be through Cloak's connection to the Darkforce (which has powered several bad guys in AoS) and through Roxxon, which bought the Isodyne company that was studying the Darkforce in Agent Carter.

I don't think any of the shows cross networks will make references to shows on other networks, even if two are owned by Disney.

Hulu also has the Runaways pilot on order, so that's another platform.  I suppose the nature of the business makes it difficult, if not impossible, for major crossovers.

 

I've read some C&D comics, and that trailer looks pretty much like them.  But the comics didn't really pull me in, and neither does that trailer.  I'll certainly give the show a few episodes, but so far it's feeling like the first MCU show to not hook me.

No. The Freeform network (along with Squirrel Girl and the New Warriors). Which I believe used to be Disney Family.

Just a small correction, Hulu didn't order a pilot of "Runaways", they went straight to series.

 

...also "Cloak & Dagger" will eventually be on Hulu, just not as a Hulu Original.

At this point, the continuity seems like how RID and Rescue Bots fit into thebl Aligned Continuity Family.

There's a lot of stuff that blatantly doesn't fit together, and the explanation is basically, "Yup."

Which is just like comics. Not everything is always going to fit together 100% all the time, theres always the chance you're gonna have to squint to make things make sense across titles, the result of Multiple writers with their own visions. They might all have a common area to work towards, but can take any path to get there. There is a chance we'll see some 'idea crossover' like Darkforce or Roxxon, or whatever that is easy to explain within show but also still connect to other things without having to be blatant of "This is _____, go watch ____ on ____ to learn more" or something along those lines.

Watched it last night. I like Tyrone more than Tandy of the two.

 

And this show continues a trend that seemingly started and ended with Daredevil and Jessica Jones by having a former Power Ranger in an MCU show: The lady police detective is played by Emma Lahana, who played Kira Ford the Yellow Ranger from Power Rangers Dino Thunder (I almost didn't recognize her at first).

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.
