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...

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  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)

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

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.

 

There's no reason for anyone to believe this, but literally just yesterday I was looking at that page and thinking "why the hell is there some random unrelated no-particular-Constructicon art at the top of Scrapmetal's page? I sure hope this doesn't lead to that Scrapmetal toy being based on it".

 

I mean, there are worse things than him not having the same robot mode as Scrapper, for sure. But man that's some sloppy and irresponsible wiki-ing.

 

EDIT: Oh yeah, in non-grousing news, holy shit the Constructicons and especially Devastator look great! That Rampage makes me so happy, and this means a giant Scavenger, which hopefully means a giant Demolishor to go with him.

 

Also, rumors are always true.

Well, it's not like Scrapmetal/"Ze Little One" exactly had a consistent and unambiguous presentation on screen...

Hell, his entire name and identity are based on an old Hasbro Q&A response from nine years ago. So calling foul on Hasbro not being accurate to a very vague onscreen appearance is kinda pedantic.

Reading the notes on Scrapper and Scrapmetal's pages explains the situation somewhat:
 

In the scene where the Constructicons revive Megatron, an aerial shot of the Constructicons in vehicle form shows a Decepticon with a front load shovel alternate mode and body type similar to Scrapper. However Hasbro do not consider ze little one Scrapper, based on their comment that Demolishor, Rampage, Mixmaster and Long Haul received figures first because they had more screentime. Additionally, a latter shot showed a Volvo excavator in place of the front loader. So, Scrapper was not killed by his fellow Constructicons. He's still considered dead from aerial bombardment, though.
The bot who was killed and used to rebuild Megatron (i.e. "Ze Little One"), was given the name Scrapmetal.


 

The on-screen identity of Scrapmetal is a bit on the fraught side. In the flyover shot of the barge on which the four Constructicons sit, a red bulldozer (Rampage), a concrete mixer (Mixmaster), a dump truck (Long Haul) and a yellow front-end loader are visible. The yellow front-end loader is the alternate mode of the Constructicon Scrapper, and Scrapmetal's robot mode appears to be the same as Scrapper's. As such, the temptation to just consider this a Scrapper unit is great... except that, after the flyover shot, the yellow loader disappears, and is replaced with a yellow Volvo excavator, clearly marked with a large Decepticon insignia. Meanwhile, Hasbro have said Scrapmetal turns into a bulldozer.[1] For the purposes of reducing headaches, we're assuming that the excavator is the "correct" vehicle mode, and that it just happens to transform into a robot mode that resembles Scrapper... even though it's not him.


Seriously. We aren't even entirely sure who exactly "Ze Little One" is, what his alternate mode is supposed to be and what his robot mode looks like. Literally the only reason we don't just consider him Scrapper (or a lookalike) is because "Hasbro said so" many years ago. Arguing that we're inaccurate for using a version of Scrapper to depict this established-by-Hasbro-mandate being and then being surprised because Hasbro is basing a toy named after this one-off reply to a question from an old marketing collaboration on this "sorta-Scrapper" is... I don't even know what to call this.
