@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2020 - 08:42 AM)

It is. Thankfully, we don't use the thing too often. It was purchased to help take down one tree and spends about 362 days a year sitting in the shop.

@  Darkstream : (08 April 2020 - 08:23 AM)

Sounds tedious

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 06:25 PM)

grinding wheel on a dremel and a lot of patience.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 06:11 PM)

What do you use to sharpen it? I was debating buying one of those kits on Amazon

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

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.

@  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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  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.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  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)

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

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

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.

Primal's slot could have been good or evil depending on the outcome of the poll, but it'd be fairly weird to have no bad guys in the entire Leader class save for what might be an evil purple Rodimus. I'd tend to guess there's at least another mold coming and Thunderwing / Star Saber would be a really clever choice.

 

Generally there are often more good guys than bad guys. Plus look at CW's leader class assortment: Megatron, Armada Megatron, Thundercracker, Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Skywarp. 5 bad guys, 1 good guy. So I see 1 bad guy and 5 good guys as no stretch for PotP, less of a stretch than a 4th completely new mold at least.

 

Also, I am assuming there will again be 6 releases spread over 5 waves (with a 6th repack wave to peter out the line), and 1 of those releases could be a bad guy and a re-use. Ultra Magnus remolded from Optimus Prime and Apelinq/Primal Prime repainted from Primal are the top guesses I'd assume, but an Optimus Prime re-use could be a movie inspired tractor-trailer Megatron/Galvatron. Kinda seems like Megatron has to show up in the line somewhere.

 

When the name of the line is Power of the Primes... I could definitely see the leader class being mostly devoted to good guys or characters based on a Prime. So hey, that's another option for a "bad guy" Optimus Prime re-use: Nova Prime. (Of course there's always Nemesis Prime, but with Rodimus Unicronus, I'd think that'd be to heavy on the "Prime" in black as a bad guy repeat idea)

 

 

 

 

Given both Star Saber and Thunderwing have "inner jets" it's not impossible they'll be remolds of one another.

 

That would still be a 4th all new leader mold for PotP, which is what I doubt.

 

 

 

Why?

 

Blaster/Soundwave

Powermaster Prime

Sixshot

Black Shadow/Overlord

 

That's four unique Leader molds for Titans Returns. 

 

 

4 unique molds, not 4 all new molds, like one of my other speculations for a PotP leader was a Thunderwing based on Sky Shadow. Remold the chest/head, and remold the tank/legs into legs/small jet/small robot. That'd be another unique mold, but not another all new mold.

Sorta separate speculation: Will there be a Megatron in PotP?

 

Could do it a few different ways even without an all new mold(a new mold Megatron could be anything, so here I'm just thinking of ways to re-use something for him):

-Megatron/Galvatron movie inspired re-use of Leader Optimus Prime

 

-Voyager Megatron combining torso: OP got to be a torso in CW, seems like Megatron should get a shot at that gimmick too. TM Megatron from Grimlock? TM4(?) Megatron from Hun-Grrr? Megatron remolded from Cyclonus or Scattershot or Onslaught?

 

-Or what I think would be the most fun, a deluxe Megatron limb. Leader OP's small bot is presumably around deluxe size, so they'd match up a bit size-wise, and there hasn't been a deluxe Megatron in CW or TR. Plus it'd mean Megatron could combine with torso Starscream or combine with torso CW OP! Haha! Brawl might be the obvious choice for a deluxe limb Megatron, but Rook could be a great base and is such a great mold. Take Rook, use UW Nosecone's treads instead of the wheels, make a new head, and a new fusion cannon weapon that mounts on the shoulder and on the top of the vehicle mode. Problem might be what remolding they have to do to the combiner socket for the Primemaster gimmick, like Dreadwind and Blackwing have might not work with Rook's body without extra space inside where the heads go when the socket's flipped out.

Personally I'd be super down with a deluxe G1 Megatron and Optimus that combine with a trailer/jet to become Super Megatron and Star Convoy, but that's probably too obscure, even these days.

Yeah, people should be more careful with their terminology as to whether they refer to a new mold wholecloth or merely a distinct tooling of a mold.

That doesn't look like the (admittedly blurry) image of POTP Grimlock that we saw awhile back. Maybe some Legends version? Intriguing.
