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.

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.

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?

@  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.

I have to give them some credit for sticking to most of those class names since Cybertron. I also have to stop and giggle a bit at the fact that each "chapter" in the UT uses an entirely different scheme. = /

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Edit: Technically, there IS an Enterprise Class, but being that it's the classification given to Constitution refits ala the Enterprise-A, it'd be between Defiant and Intrepid anyway.

There actually is a Ganges class in the Trek novels, plausible with canon. Christopher L. Bennett's current Enterprise novels establish that the unnamed "Warp Delta" class is named the "Ganges class". Get it? Cause the Ganges River has a great delta.

I've never liked the idea that the refit Enterprise in TMP qualified for a different class name. I'm glad "Enterprise class" has never made it to being explicitly established in canon.

Heh, back in the Beast Wars days, neither myself nor any of my family knew that the Basics were called "Basics" (apparently we never bothered to read the price tags on the shelves), so we just called that size class "Non-Deluxe".

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.

We're more likely to get something like Hasbro changing the name of the Leader class to Prime class. Then the show after Cyberverse will end up named Prime: The Transformers.

So you can buy your Prime class Prime: The Transformers Optimus Prime and display it with you Transformers Prime: Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime.

I hate saying "Legends Seaspray" and it being ambiguous, so I actually still say "Scout" sometimes, too.

Legends Legends Seapsray (Seaspray).

 


That one works better with Skrapnel.

 

Warlocks class


Then all we'd need would be a Hunter class and we'd be set!

(Energon was inconsistent about the names of its size classes, but the ones most people called "Basics" were called "Energon Class" in at least one catalogue.)

Hasbro really really really needs to hire better photographers (or at least someone who knows how to pose these toys well), because Rodimus looks so much better in this video. :love

 

Also, the stickers continue to be glaring in their tackiness. And of course, the biggest ones have been applied over hinges that fold into each other, ensuring tearing on the first transformation. :wtf

I cannot wait for Rodimus Unicronus Nimbus Maximus.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I really like Scout as a name over Legends, and hope it makes a comeback!

But the size whose name I find the silliest is Voyager. I mean when you really think about it how does Voyager relate to the size class? Bots who are bigger than a Deluxe are better at traveling? I guesss...? Doesnt really make sense.

Scout -> Deluxe -> Ultra -> Leader -> Titan
feels like a better progression imo. (or Mega instead of Ultra) If you want to keep the V and the made up class title sounding name, then maybe Vanguard or soemthing like that?
 

 

 

The notion that the proportions "don't fit Starscream's character" kind of strike me as odd because G1 Starscream has never had a design that fits his character. He's a sniveling, self-important character whose design comes from a robot designed to be a typical heroic robot, because that's what the Diaclone toy was designed as, and every design afterwards just adopted that. The only Starscream design that was designed towards what media classically associates with Starscream traits is Prime, and to a lesser extent Animated, which give him a silhouette that compliments how shifty and kraven he is.
 
POTP Prime just doubles down on G1 Starscream's powerful anime robot look, so essentially it just built off of what was already there.

 
Are you suggesting that shifty scientists can't hit the gym and get swole, bro?  :-P
 
no, I'm saying popular media tends not to associate those two things with each other when figuring out how to have character design reflect personality.
The way popular media tends to associate being shifty and villainous with being thin and effeminate is just standard queer coding. Like Prime Starscream even has heels! Lol
I like it when media does the opposite: the heroic looking dude (PotP and most G1 Starscreams) is secretly evil and backstabbing. I do wish they did more of its theoretical counterpart and not have every guy thats a hero be super hypermasculine and have a hero thats queer coded. That would be cool to see.

 

 

Yeah, that's unfortunately true about Prime Starscream.

 

But I dunno if I'd call what the other stuff does with Starscream's G1 design much of a juxtaposition. It's treated more as just how Starscream's looks. He's just this evil jet robot who happens to share colors with every main Gundam ever and the American flag and they never really exploit the contrast.

 

It'd be nice if they did, though.

The video makes it look like Hot Rod is red while the Rodimus parts are a darker maroon. Normally I'd be all for that but it's leaving those combined mode shoulders looking a little weird.

The biceps look to be nylon, so I thought maybe that was the difference at first. But those Rodimus forearms sure look to be darker as well. And they're ABS plastic.
