Bottom line, he reminds them alternatively of all the con men they grew up with watching on television (i.e. televangelists) or their favorite character from the Bible (i.e. Old Testament God).

Man, watching the original Voltron cartoon for the first time is so weird after having only seen the Netflix reboot.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2018 - 09:07 PM)

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 12:09 PM)

https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2018/10/16/youtube-experiences-widespread-outage/ Just one of several stories about it.

*groan* Morons.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 11:48 AM)

Yep.

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

people were calling 911 about YouTube being down?

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

....what

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 11:39 AM)

Apparently some people freaked out so much they called 911.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 07:33 AM)

I was at work when it happened I guess.

@  Paladin : (17 October 2018 - 07:18 AM)

disappeared completely up its own asshole.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 02:14 AM)

Youtube was gone?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 11:53 PM)

I actually agree with you MEDdMI, or at least be creative. x.x

@  MEDdMI : (16 October 2018 - 11:29 PM)

Death threats are boring. Get to know the person, then torment them with stuff that really gets under their skin. *evil grin*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 October 2018 - 10:18 PM)

YouTube is back!

@  Waspinator : (16 October 2018 - 09:55 PM)

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

@  RichardT1977 : (16 October 2018 - 09:27 PM)

BTW for the three of you who haven't discovered yet, YouTube is down.

@  Telly : (16 October 2018 - 08:05 PM)

maybe this is that persons first death threat, and the creativity will come with more experiance

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 06:14 PM)

Nah. Or at least not near as creative as some of them I've got. This one was a basic "If I ever see you IRL I'll slit you're throat."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 October 2018 - 06:00 PM)

was it at least a creative threat?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 01:07 PM)

Speaking of which.. Got a deaththeat today on an other messageboard. :D

To be fair even if it's more than a fluke the Trypticon leg issue seems Very easy to fix.

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".


I'll be bummed when they stop making everything Headmasters. The brilliance of the last two lines is that they make lemonade out of how light and hollow toys have to be now; Combiner Wars gave us gigantic combiners that don't collapse under their own weight, Titans Return used that space for little cockpits. I'm into the little cockpits.

I gotta admit, "Titan Master Apeface was partly a namegrab for POTP Apeface" seems a hell of a lot more plausible to me than "TM Apeface is obviously a prelude to a Voyager TR Apeface" did to me.

"We got TM Apeface because there is no larger Apeface planned" still seems more plausible than either, but still.

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.

That's what RID's linewide gimmick is!

(I'm not sure whether that makes it more or less likely.)

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.

If we don't get an update of Rodimus Prime that's as good as Titans Return Hot Rod is to Hot Rod, I'm declaring the entire line a failure.

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

 

Considering the line is called Power of the Primes, I'm thinking Rodimus will get a toy in some form or another and hopefully it will look like his G1 cartoon appearance, of course Optimus prime is likely to have a toy in some form or another, while Primal will definely get a toy as he won the "Fan vote" and its likely they'll do other charaters and brand them Primes or something, but time will tell.

 

As for Titans return, while I not been largely keen on it, overall its a good line, thou I feel Galvatron was meant for CW line or be a stand alone Generations figure, the flip up Mask is a pretty weak gimmick but then at times the first wave of voyager figures can suffer due to bad ideas but at least that Galvatron figure was a improvement over the Deluxe we had with the TFU line. The question remaining is, when will Hasbro revisit the target masters offically, same with the Power Masters?

I typed a stupid joke for this thread a couple of days ago about PotP revolving around everyone having a compartment in their chest for a TM-sized guy who turns into a Matrix. Y'know, Matrix of Loyalty, Matrix of Honesty, Matrix of Generosity etc. It didn't seem worth posting. (Did I post it? I don't think so.)

I can't think of a more obvious gimmick, unless everyone is a triple changer who has a standard robot mode and a beefier Prime mode.

According to the schedule on the wiki, that RID mobile game is due to get pulled down at the end of the year for whatever that's worth.

Everybody comes with a trailer they combine with to form a Super/Prime mode.
