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)

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)

Got Studio Series VW Bee in hand and my absolute favorite surprise with him is how cleanly all the extra stuff he comes with can be stored under him.

Having inconspicuous places to put all the weapons a figure comes with in vehicle mode is always something I appreciate when a toy does it, and here's Bumblebee able to hide his sword, gun arm, and alternate face under him with secure, obvious, user-friendly tabs. They still leave him with plenty of ground clearance to roll around with the only real obvious hint the stuff is down there is the antenna on his battle mask slightly poking out underneath the front of the car.

Conversely, his battle mask storage in robot mode is about as dumb as possible.

 

EDIT: Okay, with the big clear promo shots of the new guys at TFW, it's very clear that Optimus is basically a new mold with places for Jetfire to attach and consequently ROTF Jetfire will not in fact be able to combine with ROTF Optimus.

I mean, this Jetfire looks pretty darn good regardless. Those jet engine legs of his appear to be the actual jet engines this time around.


Jetfire doesn't look bad at all; I've just never thought that any incarnation of the Optimus combination (including this latest one) looked halfway decent and want the best SR-71-to-bewhiskered-geriatric Transformer I can get.

Well, the cancelled Unite for the Universe Jetfire armour was pretty cool-looking, but lacked either of the two modes I was interested in.

Jetfire looks a lot more like his movie model, but I don't think Jetfire's movie model is as attractive as his ROTF Leader toy.

It might just be weird perspective but Jetfire's jet mode seems kinda... stubby? I think is the word? Like it should be longer than it looks.

My biggest takeaway from all this is how the term "Movie 1" has now become an official descriptor!

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.

Constructicons, AAAAAAHHHHH!!!

Scrapmetal being based on concept art and not Scrapper maybe means we'll be getting at least eight bots. Voyager legs and Deluxe Hightower might mean that bulldozer hand might also be getting a figure. Which would be a dream come true... even if it just makes Devy even more expensive, heh.
EDIT: (Or well, Scrapmetal could be that hand i guess)

... although there seems to be a lot of weird flat boxy areas, especially on the top of Long Haul there. I almost wonder if they're unfinished...

Scrapmetal is based on this pre-Scrapper concept art, which I see has been at the top of his wiki article for years for... some reason.

So I guess the wiki accidentally a canon again.
