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)

Best of luck man.

@  electricidad : (05 May 2021 - 03:22 PM)

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

@  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.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

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?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  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.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  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.

Indeed.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

People are snapping already it seems.

@  Kaon : (27 April 2021 - 12:15 PM)

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

I love Wal-mart now- They have way more Transformers figures than Target- last night I came home with a WFC Authentic Wheeljack even though I was torn between wanting TFP Arcee and TF: The Movie Blurr, two figures I have never ever seen before-

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

Oh, it's not for lack of want that I don't have a PS4. I've been wanting one since it launched. Twice, I saved up money and almost pulled the trigger. The first time, they started talking about the PS4 Pro, so I decided to wait. The second time, I was all set to go, but then the BotW trailer dropped and magically reallocated those funds.

 

I'll get one eventually but now that my wife's student loans for her Master's have started to come due, I think it's going to be a ways off.

The Pro looks neat and all, but my Star Wars Theme regular PS4 still looks awesome to me. Although, I am told that the Pro will make this game even better, but I don't know if it would be worth the effort to get one for a slight upgrade.

I am eager to get this in tomorrow. Its nice to have a new console RPG not bogged with needless multiplayer functions that looks great.

Hoping it keeps my attention as well as VIII did. I love the series but have only ever gotten through the original and VIII.

This game is awesome! I am about 15 hours into it and I love it! It really is the true successor to Dragon Quest VIII! I will write up a full review after I get a little further into it.

That trailer makes me feel so nostalgic and also sad. I loved the DQ games all the way up to the ps1 era titles but around VIII was when I fell out of love with the series. Glad to see others are having fun with it all the same, but oof, it's bitter sweet to realize I both want to play and would hate playing the game.

I would seriously recommend picking it up to try it out. It really is a great game. If nothing else watch some of the youtube videos of it.

Ack! It's already out? *sigh* Well I'm sure I'll get around to it. Still making my way through Mass Effect again and then Smash will probably be out by the time I'm done with that.

But I definitely want to get to this eventually. Dragon Quest games and I go way back.

Well, I am 35 hours into the game now and I am completely hooked!  I just got the entire party now, and swapped out Erik for Jade, so my party is Hero, Jade, Veronica, and Serena. I thought about swapping out Serena for Rab, but for now her stats are a little bit better than his.

I'm just about that far in. Fun thing too: when I started my game, I named my hero Erwin off the top of my head. And then..

That scene and the bit after was already pretty heart-touching, but that little coincidence made it special.

Man I sunk my entire Sunday into this. But I gotta say I was a bit irked that the intro basically spoils the entire party other than one late in the game.

But that mid game twist. I knew there was more left in the game but you get that feeling of being close to your objective just for everything to fall out from under you. It’s typical RPG twists in action but man I love how they portrayed it nonetheless.

I'm at the point with Predaking as well. However I'm wondering where he found his armor crafting recipes. I seem to be missing the specific one he mentioned earlier. But look at when I posted that and that was just before I went to bed after playing all Sunday :wtf

 

But man Sylv is both highly entertaining and embarrassing at the same time. I took off the outfit he gave the hero ASAP :D

I want to say that I found the Drusilian armor set recipe in the ruins of the town. Is that the one you are talking about?

 

 

I too took off the armor Sly gives you, even though it is slightly better than what I have, I want to keep that knightly look as long as possible.
