@  Paladin : (25 January 2021 - 09:44 PM)

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

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)

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

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

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

Toys"R"Us Singapore is offering battle damaged Studio Series 01 Bumblebee as a freebie for spending $100 SGD or more on Power of the Primes and Studio Series products.

Please note that this is different from Studio Series 27 Clunker Bumblebee.

Also note that this is also different from the battle damaged Studio Series 01 Bumblebee that was available in China earlier this year.

New listings found at Amazon Australia:

Hightower

Cogman

Presumably, these are both part of the Studio Series. Their Hasbro product code numbers are in the same general range as Clunker Bumblebee and other movieverse-sounding names:

E4699 Studio Series Deluxe Class Clunker Bumblebee (revealed at Fan Expo)
E4700 Cogman *NEW*
E4701 Studio Series Deluxe Class Scrapmetal (revealed as part of a list of Studio Series DPCIs and subsequently found at Amazon Australia here)

E4709 Hightower *NEW*
E4710 Drift (found listed at Amazon Australia back in July)

so will Cogman just be a rerelease of the TLK toy nobody could find until long after they'd stopped caring?

 

 

 

Hightower's probably a repaint of somebody since I cant remember that name applying to anyone else in the Movieverse. question is which mold.

Probably, and with the car exterior painted silver this time, I'd imagine, since this line has the paint budget for it.

That makes sense, because I finally bought Cogman last week. That's when the better version usually comes along.

 

(it's a great toy though)

A Cogman re-release makes me wonder if they could add unreleased guys like Que or Soundwave to this line, or even more odd choices like that Blaster and Skywarp we saw at HasCon. They got those molds sitting unused, and the way they do the size classes now maybe possibly means older toys aren't over budget.

Cogman, eh? Would they just repaint the original and allow a Studio Series toy to have a Titan Master for a head? Would they design a whole new version? Both possibilities seem ridiculous to me. Is it the original, but with his head glued on? 

 

I mean, I don't care... I'll buy it wherever it falls on that spectrum, because Cogman. But. I'm sure curious.

TLK Deluxe Cogman can't transform with its Headmaster still attached to its body.

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.

He can come REALLY close, though. Like, there's a space easily big enough for a reasonably-sized head to fit. To the point where I wonder if the decision to make him a Headmaster came late in the development process.

Shame that the decision to NOT make him an onscreen Headmaster in the movie apparently came later...

Scrapmetal, and now Hightower. 

 

If these eventually form Devastator, that'd be a hell of a coup for Studio Series. These days it's hard to tell what WON'T happen anymore.
