I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

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

 

why are they trying to console me with "don't worry the toys won't be headmasters" like, you don't know me, man

An Optimal Optimus with either TM Primal or G1 Optimus is all my gimme.

 

But probably not from a mold shared with Apeface.

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

 

Seems so.

 

The way I look at it is that Hasbro were only able/willing to make five unique Voyager molds for Titans Return. Since every Voyager had to be a triple changer, they decided that doing the three triple changer Decepticons and the remaining triple changer Autobot was a better choice. And Galvatron's just in there as the big name character. If the line had continued longer, I would have fully expected Apeface and Snapdragon to have been the next two molds, even if they had to share a mold in the same way Alpha Trion and Broadside do. 


Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

What makes me raise my eyebrow at this is that Optimus Primal won the whole "Who is the Next Prime" vote, and seeing that lead to an Amazon/BBTS exclusive seems a little... off... to me?

 

Then again, Victorion was a a poll winner, and wasn't she exclusive?

 

And I guess there could be multiple Primals, though I'd have to admit that would surprise me, winner or no.

After all, this will be our second 2017ish Apeface.  There's room for two Primals.

Hm... how about Apeface and Snapdragon with regular heads... that can be removed like Nitro Zeus', so you can swap them with their respective Titan Masters?  I wouldn't mind that.

Eight deluxes, none of them new molds, presumably from after the 2012 design shift, as Beast Wars characters? The options seem limited. Obviously there's Waspinator and Rattrap, but if you're using them you'd use the voyager Rhinox too.

I guess if they do the Titans Return Grotusque I've been hoping for, they could redeco him as an unsatisfying TM2 Cheetor. Weirdwolf as Silverbolt? Paralon as Scorponok is obvious but also redundant.

I kind of do expect a Beast Wars segment in POTP, but I don't expect it to be this.

It wouldn't be out of the question for a retool to add/remove a gimmick, I guess. Kinda like leader Ultra Magnus and PM Optimus

This was also some anonymous 4chan rumor but I saw something on Twitter a few weeks ago that was saying that the whole main gimmick of PotP was going to be some weird toys-to-life, mobile app thing. I wish I could remember where I saw it so I could actually share it and remember what the other details of it were but it certainly sounded more interesting than this. Also fairly unlikely, but still.

I took this rumor to say Optimus and Megatron won't be headmasters cause that would make me sad? But it says nothing to confirm the horrorcons would not have them.

I'm calling bull on this rumor.

I mean everything here seems kinda believable, but that doesn't instill me with confidence. Also eight Beast Wars deluxes yet no original molds? I mean there's not enough deluxe animal molds in the whole Generations line, let alone ones that line up well with Beast Wars characters.

I mean unless we're getting some Predacons in PotP? And this line is repaints of them? That could work. But I feel like whoever has this awesome inside knowledge would have hyped that up too

I think we've just hit a point where there was a string of fairly credible rumors and and not a lot of this sort of awesome inside sources spam, so we're back to being somewhat vulnerable to them. I genuinely don't think this warrants consideration, it's just spam.

Again, yeah, while the "oh but they won't be Headmasters" thing is a bit if a plus for ME, it's also one of the biggest strikes here for the same reason -- as it kind of comes across as "don't worry they finally wised up and stopped making everything Headmasters".

If Apeface and Snapdragon are PoTP product, then, like, Titans Return is actually kind of over, since they would have been the final Voyager wave, so maybe they should hurry announcing POTP officially or something.
