I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

It scared me!

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

Yes - here is more information - https://www.battleforthenet.com/

@  Darth Gonzo : (17 October 2017 - 05:36 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

@  Dracula : (17 October 2017 - 09:45 AM)

I'd probably use a primer coat on either of them.

@  unluckiness : (17 October 2017 - 07:21 AM)

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

@Bass X0 Ha, I think some Asian accents of English, that mispronunciation would be considered standard, as those accents lack [ʌ].

@  MEDdMI : (15 October 2017 - 06:30 PM)

TMM's first cat was Cookie b/c that's the first word he said when he saw her

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:34 PM)

Reminds me of when my nephew was one year old and my sister got him a puppy. He couldn't say puppy properly and it sounded like poppy, so Poppy is what they called her.

@  Arazyr : (15 October 2017 - 02:36 PM)

Yeah. I thought it had some interesting informational articles too.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 01:59 PM)

does anyone else miss the ToyFare magazine? I just read it for the pictures and jokes rather than using it as a serious guide for buying and selling toys.

@  Arazyr : (15 October 2017 - 09:21 AM)

Uncle Bobby Peach, baby! Uncle Bobby Peach!

@  Arazyr : (15 October 2017 - 09:21 AM)

Last night, playing Mario Kart with my daughter, I misread Baby Peach as "Bobby Peach".

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

go home bass you are drunk

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2017 - 12:15 PM)

My fanon is that The Beast Within is a follow up the Marvel UK annual story Victory. In Victory, the Dinobots are trapped within a dream world, unable to wake up - each one having dreams, ending in the Dinobots having another dream then waking up in a comic issue. My fanon is that The Beast Within is their final dream that finally pushes them into waking up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 10:25 AM)

As long as that means The Beast Within is still non-canon, I'm fine with it.

@  Locoman : (14 October 2017 - 09:29 AM)

When everything is canon, nothing is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2017 - 09:25 AM)

The TF multiverse is an arbitrary concept. Whatever an author thinks, goes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Trypticon vs Deathsaurer. Make it happen!

@  tffan01 : (14 October 2017 - 05:31 AM)

Going by AVP, is Spider-Man and Zoids comic canon to the TF multiverse???

@  D Immortalis : (14 October 2017 - 12:37 AM)

stop that! we shall never speak of the "Embarassment", 'lest we be punished with more like it! =]

@  Pennpenn : (13 October 2017 - 08:23 PM)

Would the mutant heads have been on the headmasters or on the bodies (sort of like TR Galvatron's "helmet")?

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 08:05 PM)

Alternate reality: Beast Wars mutant heads really took off. Nearly every Transformers since '96 has featured them. The big complaint against the line-wide gimmick in TR isn't being headmasters, it's the lack of mutant heads.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Car TF molds get made all the time; bat TF molds don't. I feel like that justifies making a new Convobat from a mold configured highly unlike the original.

@  Bass X0 : (13 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

and yet Mindwipe is good enough to use as Convobat.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 03:19 PM)

I'm okay with that.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

Takara seems to have decided that the TR Chromedome mold is unsuitable for anyone else besides Chromedome.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

*shrug* No 21st century (Macromaster) Nightbeat toy seems to have satisfied a decent number of people, from what I understand.

@  Locoman : (13 October 2017 - 02:57 PM)

You could probably finagle a pretty good Nightbeat body from TR Chromedome, or even a heavy retool of Cogman.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 02:44 PM)

Nightbeat in particular. Hasbro seems to love him.

You may not know me, I posted here a little back in the day, and Beast Mayhem is my home. But, I do love art and I like to encourage it as much as possible. About a month ago, those of us in BM who like to art started doing a Weekly Challenge for fun. So, here are the rules, if anyone else would like to join in.
1) Every Sunday, I will post a challenge from the Art Prompts website and change the topic title accordingly. Categories will be rotated.
2) The challenge is due the following Sunday, but it's a loose deadline. Draw/sculpt/write/whatever you can within the timeframe, and post what you have when you can regardless if it got finished or not.
3) The point is to provide inspiration and have fun. You're welcome to interpret the challenge however you want, leave out/alter wording as you like, etc. Don't worry about missing a challenge, you can combine one with later challenges if you want.
4) It doesn't have to be TF related, you can do anything (as long as it follows board guidelines, of course). Post/comment in this thread where we can compare results!

Edit: Please see the spoiler below for a list of previous art challenges.
The first two were ones I came up with before we started using the Art Prompt site. The boobs one was an inside joke and none of the results were board safe...

Anyway, hope to see you on Sunday!

That sounds fun. 

 

If you link the topic in here it might be fun for people to click it and view the old stuff. 

 

Traditionally, it's perfectly fine where it is and you're under no obligation to pack up the tent, but my end goal is to gather up all the folks and get us all under the roof so I think if you considered moving that topic over here or perhaps starting a new one here that would help a lot. 

 

Or run them concurrently but I feel that would still dilute the art groups.

I would prefer to run them at the same time. The Art Challenge thing in MayHem originally started as a Google Hangouts thread. We currently use a chat room using the Discord app to post our art or whatever else once a week. The thread is used mainly to announce the week's theme and post a link to the chat room. The main issue with the room is that we get very NSFW and post naughty/personal art too.

I talked to them, and there's a few artists in Mayhem who want to keep their stuff in Mayhem rather than cross post/move to another forum. I can link the Hangouts thread, but being Mayhem it gets horribly off topic. :D Tomorrow I'll be glad to post the board safe challenges that I did here, and I'll leave it to my fellow Mayhemmers whether they want to post theirs or not.

Ok, here's some of the results from previous challenges that I did. The others are either NSFW or I haven't done them yet. These are also photos instead of scans, b/c I'm lazy.

 

"Something cat-themed and/or creepy" -drawn with my non-dominant hand. Medium: pencil

"Something you love/hate to consume" -natto (fermented soybeans), one of the grossest things I've tried. Medium: sepia brush pen

"Gangly, goofy-looking princess" -Destron's char from the May Hem rp, as a teenager. Medium: pencil, done quick and loose

I still want to finish this one with color... the fact they're supposed to be wearing masks does not come across at all...

 

Big Sad Boobs is NSFW and I don't think I had anything for the food one... Mermaid was likewise NSFW, though I might be able to make an alternate version of it.

Princess 2D wasn't my original idea, but a post Copper made put Gorillaz in my mind and, well, this just sort of popped in there XD

Did a really fast Sharpie sketch on a comics backing board and tossed in some white gel pen dots.  Wanted to see if I could so something recognizable in a couple minutes.

Very good!  It has a very evocative feel with the loose lines and high contrast.  Kinda noir-ish, if you see what I mean.

I like how it looks like the bench is leaning against the wind, trying not to collapse on itself.

I think I'm gonna try something really different for this challenge. We'll see how it goes!
