Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

Oh man, if that Fire Convoy rerelease is real, I might have to have it. FC was the first toy I ever imported (I was too impatient to wait for the Hasbro release) and he's always been one of my favorites. Unfortunately I've lost some of Convoy's armor bits, Magnus is in pieces, all the chrome is gone, and there's probably two intact tires between the two of them. A big shiny new set would be pretty special.


WANTED:
Fire Convoy/RID Prime's left shoulder armor (original red version)
God Magnus/RID Ultra Magnus tires - one large, four small

 God Fire Sword

 

Where did this name for the sword come from? Both the Japanese cartoon and the original clear God Fire Convoy giftset's toy bio used "Super God Sword".

 

 

Probably just faded memories of the name or misinformation from back in the day.

 

 

MP Fire Convoy when?

 

I legitimately don't know what they would do for an MP RID Prime besides take away his electronics and ladder-missiles. He's basically already show-accurate in every mode, fully posable, yadda yadda yadda. I guess they could make him a licensed truck.

 

Would he be bigger? I guess he could be MP Magnus sized. If, like, there were any chance they could sell a Magnus-sized non-G1 MP.

 

 

I'm sure they could do a lot to improve on the figure's aesthetics.  Make the look more like the anime and the figures overall more athletic.

 

People said similar things about Beast Convoy.  Mimicking the look of the CG notwithstanding, there are definitely some things that were done differently.

The way Super Fire Convoy's chest piece attaches to normal Fire Convoy's torso could be improved upon.

 

While the front chest attachment prongs were secure, the top chest attachment pegs always kept popping off on mine since the ladder made that whole piece so heavy and the sliding mechanism for normal Fire Convoy's torso lacked any means of locking into place, which let gravity always pull the torso down, causing the normal Fire Convoy head to push upward on the top chest attachments for Super Fire Convoy's chest and head.

 

Of course, mine was/is the Hasbro version named Optimus Prime, so pardon my use of the Takara names for the American toy.

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 show model was always pretty different from the toy, in color if nothing else. I just don't see that difference in RID Prime.

 

I mean, I probably would have said the same thing about ROTF Leader Prime, and yet the MPM is pretty different (and I would suggest largely superior), so I'm sure they could do it. It just seems like a solution in search of a problem, to me.

 

On the other hand, RID Magnus is garbage so RID Prime as a reason to make a revised MP RID Magnus is a-okay by me.

I certainly like that they're likely giving us the remaining 1987 Hasbro Autobot Targetmasters guns

 

whats the point of specific target masters that dont have the corresponding bigger robot to go with them? id rather have sureshot, crosshairs and pointblank (even if it is minus their partners) than spoilsport, pinpointer and peacemaker. putting those guns with other tfs just seems weird to me

My guess is Takara has gotten on a train of doing the 1987 Targetmasters now, and they don't want to stop the train.
The Targetmasters can be remolded without much trouble from the same base engineering, but there are no satisfyingly accurate molds for the large Cybertron trio at present.

as others have said, the tribute orion pax would make a good crosshairs. t30 sandstorm already looks like sureshot (especially the takara one), so maybe just put a new head on him. would be weird to have him be bigger than the others, and also the only triple changer. all we need is pointblank
