It's a time warp. We're trapped in the past.

@  Pennpenn : (18 June 2018 - 05:44 AM)

A rick roll? Really?

@  Waspinator : (17 June 2018 - 11:03 PM)

On the subject of a Mega Man movie

@  Msol : (17 June 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Man I really wish Slash was blue instead of red. Swoop looks off as the only blue one. What a missed opportunity!

@  Otaku : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@Bass X0 So, getting back to Mega Man as a movie and smart-aleck answers, wouldn't Astroboy (2009) count? ;) Otherwise, I'm torn; part of me is glad they haven't tried given Hollywood's track record.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 01:52 PM)

and some TV show...

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 01:35 PM)

John Connor?! John Connor! JOHN CONNORRRRR!!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

Pretty sure that's what happened to John Connor in that last one

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 12:17 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 11:57 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 11:49 AM)

@Nevermore Rice of fhe Macheens: taking over the world with evil robots the size of rice grains.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:36 AM)

It eventually goes off the rails, but the bones of an interesting story are there. I enjoyed it more than Rise of the Machines or Salvation

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 11:26 AM)

There was Genysis, Jujjmend Dae, Salvayshon and Rice of the Macheens, or something.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:25 AM)

I actually re-watched Genisys the other day, and I'll give it one thing. The beginning of the movie with the pre-Terminator 1 future scenes all looked really fantastic.

@  Xellos : (17 June 2018 - 11:08 AM)

Five, actually, with a sixth in development. Varying degrees of cannonicity between them, though.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 07:59 AM)

There was only two movies, right?

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 07:08 AM)

overall, lousy. there's one great one, one pretty good one and everything else under that brand sucks.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

uuuhhh, what do you think the terminator movies are?

@  Bass X0 : (17 June 2018 - 06:35 AM)

Why has Mega Man never been given a Hollywood movie?

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:32 AM)

Considering at least half our workforce is not of "German" descent, racism should really have no place at our workplace.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 AM)

The one thing that really fascinated me was how he was so adamant that his kids have to learn German that he insisted on only speaking German at home. I'm not saying that this is the one true way to do it, but I did respect him for that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:22 AM)

Always cheerful, always friendly. Leaves behind a wife and three kids.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:21 AM)

I'd have done this either way, but in this case it particularly pissed me off because the deceased coworker was literally the nicest person you could possibly hope to meet.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 04:18 AM)

He deserved it to be suspended. What an imbecile.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:17 AM)

****ing disgusting racist.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

Guy was immediately suspended from work.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

He literally said in my face "they only make a big fuss because that token negro died". I said "dude, what are you saying?" He said "my parent taught me to say what I think." I said "bad enough for you to think like that." and then reported him.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:15 AM)

So I told this other longtime employee that I was planning to go to the funeral, and he went on a tirade about how "other people had died too", and this was only treated as a big deal because this guy was black.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:13 AM)

A longtime coworker who originated from Ghana had died, really nice guy, I attended his funeral on Friday.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:13 AM)

So on Thursday I had to report a coworker for extremely racist remarks...

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 03:53 AM)

Yes and yes, thank you

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 June 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Pennpenn: do you mean the one in the tweet? Does a direct link work?

@  Pennpenn : (16 June 2018 - 06:57 PM)

Picture appears to be gone?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 June 2018 - 04:03 PM)

NVK is right though. IIRC this is IDW's first time utilizing 3P designs in an issue. Discounting that one time with the alternate cover.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 June 2018 - 03:45 PM)

Huh.

@  Paladin : (16 June 2018 - 03:11 PM)

https://twitter.com/Scotty__P/status/1008013262707986433 check out that panel. It's absolutely MMC's Calidus & Stray.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 June 2018 - 03:09 PM)

When has this happened aside from some cover art?

@  Paladin : (16 June 2018 - 02:48 PM)

so apparently IDW is actually using 3P designs in the actual comics now. That's weirdly meta even for them...

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

I was all ready to get one today. Walmart didn't have one. Barely had anything on that aisle, and haven't restocked since february.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Exactly. I borrowed one and it's a decent toy but not enough to put up with stickers.

@  Pennpenn : (14 June 2018 - 08:30 AM)

So it's possible you just won't ever buy that Rodimus?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2018 - 05:55 AM)

I'm not buying Rodimus until a version without stickers comes out. I'm not gonna try to paint on flames.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (13 June 2018 - 05:52 PM)

I don't think it really matters either way.

@  abates : (13 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Do we need a new general Hall of Fame discussion thread or should I just necromancy this one?

@  Otaku : (13 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@TheMightyMollusk They almost always have me at "black repaint". Well, they would if I could afford to buy more toys. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2018 - 03:17 PM)

I prefer Rodimus Unicronus. An evil black repaint that isn't Optimus, he looks badass, and his head makes me think of Lemmy Kilmister.

@  Telly : (13 June 2018 - 03:02 PM)

just get the reprolabels for rodimus and all will be good. as for the toy itself, im still not too keen on the rodimus mode (its too big for my uses to be honest), but the hot rod part has grown on me. using THAT as rodimus is perfect

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2018 - 12:31 PM)

There is no "fixing" stickers...

@  unluckiness : (13 June 2018 - 07:42 AM)

I think the rerelease in the Primal wave is supposed to have fixed stickers though.

@  unluckiness : (13 June 2018 - 07:42 AM)

It's okay but the stickers on hinges suck and the thinner panels are scary to manipulate.

Well, I waited too long and missed out on Brimstone. But, I have the Bard of Darkmount, Transmutate and Galva Convoy on the way. I've never tried building one so this should be fun.

I'm sure somebody will swoop in to buy all of the toys at the end of the year to flip on eBay or wherever, but will the paper materials nobody wants end up in a dumpster behind FP when New Year's comes? The market for empty SG Drift boxes doesn't seem very large.

I hope you have a spare Orion Pax (or one of his redecos) to strip down. The GalvaConvoy sets FP are selling do not come with hardware.

I believe this means no screws or pins to assemble him with.

Things I want:

Most wanted set. This was my sons first BotCon so if I could get a set on the cheap it would be one last cool memory for he and I to split.

Rodimus and Arcee, naturally

Pretender set (really I only want Optimus.)

See, I do really want Pretender Prime. But I might be getting Oilmaster from someone splitting up that set. And even though I'd prefer Prime, Oilmaster would be the right price.

Wish someone mentioned splitting the two pack yesterday. I didn't even think of asking here.

What I really, really want is for the Pretender two pack to make it to 90% off.

I think I did? But yeah, it'd be nice to get it even cheaper... it's just I don't know if I should chance it.

Oh, well I apologize if I messed up our chance to be showered in Pretenders.

I'm gonna take a hard look at my toy budget later today.

Dude, if it makes it to Friday (very likely) , it'll be $16 bucks for two deluxes. I've seen Wal*Mart clearance prices less competitive.

Well, I waited too long and missed out on Brimstone. But, I have the Bard of Darkmount, Transmutate and Galva Convoy on the way. I've never tried building one so this should be fun.

 

I'd considered getting one of those Galva Convoys, but then I remembered the difficulty I had in assembling custom class figures while I was actually in the class, with instructions and folks with access to better tools (and talent!) handy, and realized I could never hope to achieve satisfactory results on my own.

 

You're a braver man than I.

 

That said, there was a discussion some time back about whether the Allspark might consider hosting scans of the Instruction books to those classes. I'm happy to contribute the 2009, 2013, and 2016 books, but I don't want to run afoul of site policy if we still think those should be considered off-limits for some reason.
