Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 June 2019 - 11:21 PM)

If only Johnny Mnemonic had had $25, he could've saved himself a big headache.

I don't believe Onyx Prime is a substitution from a previously-planned missing Prime Master wave because he looks like Onyx Prime and not a Pretender's inner robot.

Makes sense when you consider Brawl was an APC in that TRU exclusive Scout wave.

I think figures are likely locked in on a per-year basis, rather than a per-line basis.

For instance, we know that the alternate headsculpt for CW Rook is Brawl, which screams to me "we don't know for sure if we'll get to do a tank mould for 2016, so let's give ourselves a worst-case-scenario option so that we could still do Bruticus in a pinch". (I'm assuming the Swindle reshell was tooled at the same time as Rook.)

So it's not impossible they'd have had to lock in these choices for 2018 POTP figures before they knew exactly what'd be happening with 2019.

That definitely makes some sense. I'm not convinced that Predaking coming with Onyx Prime had to be a late stage change - even in eighteen months, we don't know that 12 happened to be a more convenient number than 11, and the slideshow didn't list any of Predaking's other accessories. (I don't think he ever would have come with both an Enigma of Combination and a Matrix of Leadership that he could use exactly one of at a time, even if they hadn't decided on having names for the alternate Matrix colors at the time, so that can't be the intended reading.) But in your scheme, precisely the kind of change that wouldn't show up there is the kind that could be implemented. 

 

So, yeah, I think that makes sense that if the assortments are selected far in advance of any execution and with no flexibility, it's more likely to happen on an annual basis rather than by imprint. Whether that makes the hypothetical 18-month version of the lineup or the one we got the "real" plan I guess is left to taste.

Thinking this team references GDO stuff seems dubious.  More likely they went "What's the closest thing we have to a tank?" and an APC was coincidentally the answer.  Because it was.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Going off an otherwise-substantiated leak, 2017 was originally planned with sixteen, and Slugslinger would've had Nightbeat, Crosshairs and Needlenose as wavemates.

...We might have gotten a new transtector'd Nightbeat instead of just the Titan Master?

Also, potentially having only eight solo-release Prime Masters, while the remaining four are relegated to being pack-ins with possibly hard-to-find exclusives and pricey boxsets I'm not interested in, is very much making me reconsider trying to get them all. :(

In-hand pics of Predaking: http://www.tfw2005.c...daking.1148708/

He's gorgeous, with much better articulation and proportions than a lot of other combiners. I love the shot of him just chilling, sitting down. Looks like the only flaw with the combined mode is the omission of the knuckle spikes and sword, and we all know there will be four different 3P kits fixing that.

Man, I'm just not sure about these guys. At least the Constructicons managed decent alt-modes and the robot modes, while compromised, didn't make cringe much just to look at them.

The Predacons just feel like a step backwards to me. I'd be lying, though, if I said I wasn't interested in getting them. There's never going to be a better official option.

I think they look good.

I don't think they look amazing or even "great" wich in this day and age and for a toy this big and expensive is kinda disappointing.

-ZacWilliam, but they still look good and I want them. (And they are probably far more durable and playable, for y'know, Kids than an "ideal" set would be.)
