We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

Dunno how likely these are, but given how all the other unlikely predictions turned out, might as well post it here.

Sounds possible. Not definitely true, but possible. Especially as maybe something to take the place of the exclusive box sets if they drop those.

My only hope is if it IS true that it would just be Prime and Megatron who would not have Titan Masters cause I'd be very disappointed in an Apeface and Snapdragon without that gimmick.

-ZacWilliam, it's not a dealbreaker per-say but it would be a pretty big mark against them imo.

If anything, that's disappointing. I hope THAT part isn't true.

I don't generally mind that, but it does strike me as a thing that could potentially diminish the believability of it. This could change depending on, well, what the molds actually Look like, but it seems that'd be a lot more retooling than simply a new faceplate and some robot bits.

Hard to believe that actual Headmasters who have been on the rumor list for about a year now and everything else came true would end up not being Headmasters. Wouldn't that be very early-stage, foundational tooling design?

I dunno. Maybe it's just me, but rumors sure seem a lot easier to make up then be right by coincidence as of the last few years, simply on the grounds of there being an increasingly-shrinking pool of G1 (or related) characters for them to re-make in some way, plus the increased number of Optimus Prime toys they've been cranking out does invite some obvious "well who ELSE can they make from this general mold".

Of course that Beast Wars logo could also explain why some bullshitter would think claiming an upcoming Beast Wars line might be a safe bet.

I really hope Primal and Megatron were the main design thrust of the molds and Apeface/Snapdragon were the reuses because this franchise owes Beast Wars so much that it's kinda a slap in the face to put two nobody Horrorcons ahead of them in the design phase IMO.

I really hope that Primal and Megatron were considered and used to add visual interest, but that ultimately the molds were designed to be the Horrorcons, as I can't imagine a way to make faithful triple changer versions of the BW guys that would satisfy anyone.

Would it have killed Hasbro to have actually put Apeface and Snapdragon in the line that was all about Headmasters and even had triple-changing Headmasters?

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.
