@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

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

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.

I love Scrapper, but as good as the Sledge mold is, it's not as good as the Sky Shadow mold for my money.

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.

I dig the gold on Excellion, and how the blocks of gold on his chest transition to orange on through to the red shoulders.

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).
