It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

SG Ramjet backs into things rather than hitting them head on.


Or conversely, SG Ramjet is a hug version of the minicon with a tiny Tidalwave partner.


Misspelled huge.  Ah well, it's better looking like a swear filter.

Obvs using the bug-Pretender idea from Dirge, Ramjet is BW Ramulas/Universe Longhorn who splurts open to reveal a G1 Seeker body.

 I pitched that 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.

 

This is amazing, because it was Marvel Octopunch that effed things up in the first place with Primus!

(Though that said, I would have preferred the events that led to the multiversal kerfluffin be just as silly. Like instead of it just being that Ultra Magnus is evil and greedy, I pitched that 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.)

 

Why was this rejected over "Ultra Magnus is evil and greedy"?

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.

I wouldn't say "rejected". I was helping with toy/character concepts so wasn't technically part of the writing team and they had plenty of their own ideas.

Whatever little things I might mention about the universe, they are just that. Little. It was one of my favorite to work on and write, and as a whole is one of my favorite of the Timelines. And it led to Another Light and OMAM, which I thought were great ways to ties up all the loose ends being laid by Club fiction since, well, pretty much since the start. 

 

So I might have gone a little more silly or more parody with some things, but... It is a universe that already includes things like Around Cybertron and SDSG. Seriousness might have been warranted as a counterbalance :D

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 would at least like to see some SG sprinkled here & there from time to time.

 

Titans Return gave us SG Squeezeplay and SG Alpha Trion's upgraded form. ;)

 

 

And with any luck, we will know this week if "Coalescence" correctly predicted a TR Grotusque.

 

 

Damn. I spoke too soon. :(

How was the decision made to utilize a character from a t-shirt of an unofficial BotCon? Were the Hartmans involved in that?

There is a full Combiner and its Legendsmaster in that panel...

But there was never an actual plan to ever realize said Combiner; just a coincidence that there was the right number of characters after the attempt to recreate a classic Sunbow scene with modern toys. (Or a color scheme to hint at modern toys) So no name was discussed or brainstormed.

Nightbird is in Dust Up colors, which along with Bombshell's dialogue was supposed to be a wink and a nudge that she'd get upgraded into something resembling the Torchbearer.

My random very rough and sketchy musing being that in this universe, the Decepticons give her sentience and she sticks around as a loosely affiliated agent. Then when Starscream's Brigade comes around, things go a little differently since Starscream is fiercely loyal to Megatron and his team up/Combiner doesn't have to include any Renegade Decepticons. But that's as far as the musing carried.

It would instead be about the current AWOL Bug Bite resurfacing after all this time--having somehow gotten to the SG Sunbow universe--trying to turn five loyal Decepticons into a new Renegade combiner to fight the Cybertronians, inverting Starscream's turning five renegade Decepticons into a new combiner that eventually became loyal to their faction. :p
