Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

That said: I've now decided that my ideal SG Drift would be the Rich Texan from the Simpsons. Same colours as regular Drift, but his robot mode looks like a suit with bolo tie instead of samurai armour, his helmet looks like a cowboy hat (with a nose-guard), and he turns into a muscle car with cow horns on the hood.

Greg dropped some druthers so I'll throw in one of my own. I wanted to have Rodimus take on the identity of "Rodimus Prime, Supervillain from the Future.", basically using an armor-trailer (at one time I was looking at Energon Landmine as a body), he would make an excuse, go get in his armor, and pretend to be his future self as a Prime, time-travelling back to mess with Optimus, who falls for the gag every time no matter how obvious it is to everyone else.

A Naruto color scheme, while hilarious, would've never worked for SG Drift. He's the opposite of positive Drift, so he needs to be the exact opposite of a weeaboo.

And yet, a "weeaboo" is pretty much what Hydra wrote SG Drift as being.

I'd really love SG to be the Generations line theme for a year or so. Some of it would be redundant (OP, Megatron, etc) but I'm not sure all the major characters the club has done would be guaranteed a spot. Throw a handful of new molds in for kicks and the remainder can be remolds/repaints.

Eh mirror universe stories are best used sparingly. The longer they're out there, the more it's clear that things don't really make much sense, requiring increasingly convoluted explanations as to why things are so different but other things are exactly the same.

Isn't that how most alternate timeline stories work? Mathematically speaking, it makes no sense that anyone can find realities with familiar doppelgängers with ease if the multiverse has a nigh-infinite number of myriad diverse universes.

Normal Drift is Genji, so SG Drift should clearly be McCree.
You thought Hanzo, but that's Deadlock.

 

Would making SG Drift an actual cowboy be a little too close to SG Bludgeon? 

 

Alright so I helped develop (if you could call it that; it was always just a hint of an idea) the anime fan Naruto-Drift, but the idea for Drift that I pitched myself was that he was a wandering spiritual faith healer, who was actually able to focus the energy of his Ember and fix minor ailments. But as people begged him to visit their hometowns and started offering money to try to coerce him, he started to realize the more he "could do" the more people were willing to offer him. He began to make false claims about the limits of his ability. He rose to televangelist fame, having his own TV show where he performed grandiose "miracles". He would fix the blind, the mute, the paralyzed.... Even claiming to have brought back the dead. But his empire collapsed when Optimus Prime, fearing Drift was becoming a rival, sent a spy in to expose Drift's frauds. Then after Drift lost it all, Optimus strolled in with an offer - work for him and Drift would get all the money he wanted. Drift couldn't refuse and didn't ask what he was getting paid to do, which ultimately turned out to be the Autobot wet work. Optimus had taken a healer and made him a killer, something in which the sadist found no end to his sick pleasure.

 

Which... I guess could still be the unexplored back story for Mech with a Mouth! :D

"We could just... go on an carefree adventure."

 

You know, this here is why I don't mind all the multiverse stuff happening in SG.

 

SG took all of the brand's typical character and plot quirks and twisted up their absurdity and ridiculousness. So if you take one of the "usual" universal doomsday plots that Transformers fiction face at least once in their lifespan, what better place to amp the threat up to the multiversal level than SG?

 

(Though that said, I might have preferred the events that led to the multiversal kerfluffin be just as silly. Like instead of it being that Ultra Magnus is evil and greedy, it was actually the two Octopunches meeting, firing at each other, and accidentally tearing a hole in the multiverse as their harpoon lasers collided. Because a single universe just can't handle two Octopunches.)

Thrust and Ramjet have never really had the character "hook" that Dirge does. He's practically a meme. Thrust is...what?...a cowardly bully? Not really interestingly reversible. And what would Ramjet be? A guy who doesn't headbutt things and hates toast?

 

I mean, maybe you could get a riff going about Ramjet being a Sunstreaker-type with an awesome, indestructible head that he refuses to use lest it get scuffed, but...
