Well I had 8 people watching my stream at one time tonight.. I call that a success...

@  Telly : (19 October 2018 - 11:08 PM)

my latest order from tfsource is coming from pennsylvania. all other ones have come from vegas (or thereabouts). did they move? is there a convention in pennsylvania theyre at and shipped from there?

@  MEDdMI : (19 October 2018 - 10:02 PM)

Unless it's the main cast of Persona 5.

Bottom line, he reminds them alternatively of all the con men they grew up with watching on television (i.e. televangelists) or their favorite character from the Bible (i.e. Old Testament God).

Bill Maher gave an excellent explanation for why the Religious Right loves Trump so much.

Man, watching the original Voltron cartoon for the first time is so weird after having only seen the Netflix reboot.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

@  MidnightFox : (19 October 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Everyone needs to stop reading Rand

@  Tieria Prime : (18 October 2018 - 10:54 PM)

Gotten a new Gundam gunpla toy model kit 

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 October 2018 - 09:47 PM)

Ugh it's ridiculous how some people worship Rand's ideas.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2018 - 09:07 PM)

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2018 - 08:48 PM)

business types need to stop reading Ayn Rand.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 October 2018 - 07:29 PM)

The streaming services are starting to get too saturated and start canabilising each other.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 October 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Good thing I never bought into VRV...Funimation is pulling out. And I got into HiDive at $4 a month.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2018 - 10:21 AM)

The restauraunt messes up your food, you complain to customer service. Complain to 911 when you get food poisoning from said food.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2018 - 07:59 AM)

Ugh. I hate people sometimes.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2018 - 04:00 AM)

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 12:09 PM)

https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2018/10/16/youtube-experiences-widespread-outage/ Just one of several stories about it.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 October 2018 - 11:59 AM)

*groan* Morons.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 11:48 AM)

Yep.

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

people were calling 911 about YouTube being down?

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

....what

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 11:39 AM)

Apparently some people freaked out so much they called 911.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 07:33 AM)

I was at work when it happened I guess.

@  Paladin : (17 October 2018 - 07:18 AM)

disappeared completely up its own asshole.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 02:14 AM)

Youtube was gone?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 11:53 PM)

I actually agree with you MEDdMI, or at least be creative. x.x

@  MEDdMI : (16 October 2018 - 11:29 PM)

Death threats are boring. Get to know the person, then torment them with stuff that really gets under their skin. *evil grin*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 October 2018 - 10:18 PM)

YouTube is back!

@  Waspinator : (16 October 2018 - 09:55 PM)

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

With all this talk of Energon Starscream I can't but help think of this team and their beautiful colors!

8ae9a03951e2c786f1bb57b6e433ca13.jpg
d0e3825ffd10efe3fb6c89d4f9c0e26e.jpg

They take the usual Aerialbot red and white and tweak it in such interesting ways. Like Air Raid and his Energon Screamer-esque gray and teal, or Skydive and his LAVENDER. (which this image doesn't do justice) I love the Lavender, him and BW II Galvatron can hang out and be buddies lol
This is a really nice looking team! I still have them on (the back of) my shelf with the "snowman" white version of the Fansproject upgrade kit, and they don't serve a purpose in my collection but I have a fondness for them.

Also speaking of these molds the original Energon Storm Jet has always been a fav of mine colorwise

cdddfaa3395f09bbb3f61d5c2268476d.jpg

The predominant red, with black and dark gray, and gold and blue highlights? Solid~
(Also I like how his vehicle mode shows off a lot more of that white)

I was just talking about them. Skydive is the best deco on the best Energon combiner mold.

Also, that mold is probably the best A-10 TF mold.

Was just fiddling around with Swerve today, and remembering how much I loved his deco and how it managed to somehow made him  seem like a much better toy than Clocker.

The Sky Shadow mold can air surf on its energon weapon, so it wins!

Also I like to mistransform it and leave the head backwards and flip the goggles partway down. Kind of gives it a Wheeljack mouthed visor face which I think looks cool and cute~

I like the dark red better than the version with the gray.

 

I don't mind the red tires at all.  Actually like them a lot.

I love this thing so much. That it was like the same year or so as Classics Rodimus is endlessly weird in retrospect, but at the time it was a lovely tip of the hat from HasTak to come up with such a nostalgia-friendly but still plenty novel design, and then give it two neat takes on the color scheme.

That Hasbro came to the rescue with a regular retail version in Excellion was a godsend for someone who dug the Takara colors but couldn't swing the dough for it.

It's subdued, but I really like this one. The black and silver contrasting with the slightly-greenish blue and the two different greens, plus the small red and yellow accents...

I find a lot of these colour schemes a little too bright, so here's something on the opposite end of the spectrum:

 

r_scout-hardtop-079.jpg

r_scout-hardtop-017.jpg

 

The green, yellow, and green/blueish grey work really nicely here to create the perfect generic/miner look, right down to the S7 faction symbol. Lot of paint on this figure in general. I miss that.

I know this opinion is likely to be unpopular, as I've seen Computrons that are a composite of the UW and CW Technobots with UW Afterburner left out, but I absolutely love UW Afterburner's color scheme.

 

That red is such unique shade of red (I've never seen it on a toy before), and coupled with the white and clear blue... I find it very fetching (not my photo - but a rare example where I think the red is properly captured).
