He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

Everyone needs a 1440 monitor. Just set up my new battle station and I never knew how much I was missing!

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

I will say there were some excellent musical cues on Kaylon.  Evocation of both Tron and VGer themes.

That whole landing scene was remarkable, between the visuals and the music.

Dare I say that this was my favourite episode of the series so far.

The obvious resolution, and therefore probably not what they'll go with (but you never know), would be:

So far the show has not shied away from less than perfect endings to conflicts. I wouldn't be at all surprised to not see this neatly resolved.

So is that a mid-season finale? I see there're are only supposed to be five more eps, but I don't know if they're taking a break.

I know he's not doing it all alone, but McFarlane has proven that he isn't just a goofball and that he knows what his audience wants. Imagine if he had a shot at an actual Star Trek (or even Star Wars) project. We already know how much he cherishes both properties.



I hope Disney is taking notice.

Just finished Pt 2.  Now THAT is how space battles should look.  I wish Trek would have given us something like vs the Borg.  Closest we got was in DS9 when they retook the station.  Star Wars finally got better in ROTS with their space battles.   

 

really enjoying this show.  Also, being in the military, I really feel like this is how the space force would be anyway.  Especially when it comes to glueing Mr. Potato Head parts to a robots face or getting an alien to eat all kinds of weird crap.
