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)

Finally got around to opening Studio Series movie Bee.  He's so tiny!  And way more adorable than I thought he would be.


I can't get him to peg together in vehicle mode very well, though.  That's kind of a bummer.  Is there a trick that I'm missing?


Also, are the little smaller windows supposed to fold up into his backpack? They've got hinges, so I assumed they folded up but the instructions leave them folded down.

The hinges on the lower wings seem to just be there for "some parts designed to detach if excessive force is applied". All of the designs and art of the pre-final Bee design seem to have had four wings, like Bee has had all along*.


If you figure out how to get him into vehicle mode reliably without descending into an all-consuming blood-rage, let me know.

Oh.  It really does seem like they should fold up.  I mean, they do, so his backpack is a little more compact.  I do kind of like them out.  Makes him look a bit like a Mospeada / Cyclone when it's transformed.


If you figure out how to get him into vehicle mode reliably without descending into an all-consuming blood-rage, let me know.


Yeah.  That's one of the things that really bugs me about movie stuff.  Just peg together, darnit.  It's a shame, because the VW Bug is a really good design.

I don't find that Studio Series stuff on the whole is like that at all. VW Bee is an unfortunate throwback to the ROTF era of Transformer toy design.


(So is Blackout, although less infuriating to transform.)

It's possible. The only one so far doesn't have any art.

It's cropped very close, but it does!


What little you can see seems to match the design on the calendar.

It's definitely not the same style of art, though. I mean, that doesn't preclude a non-movie car-only design having been done up for merchandising and then having different pieces of art done for it, obviously. It's possible it's just an early design and there was a point where he wasn't even going to have a helicopter mode.

Looks like Sideswipe's boxer briefs and lower legs were Photoshopped from a darker color.

Think the Crowbar remold is meant to go by the name "Crankcase."


and I'm still really hoping Sideswipe can stand properly. I know his feet design doesn't offer a lot of room to work with but some of his previous releases found a way to be semi-stable...

Are Sideswipe's feet misassembled? They're completely turned around from the promo CGI shot.

Video review of 22 Dropkick in English:



I guess PrimeVsPrime must have ordered from someone supplied by Hasbro Asia or TakaraTomy as I have not heard any reports of fans in Western regions finding Dropkick at retail yet.

As bizarre a mold choice as it is, I do rather like Crankcase's color scheme. A whole lot snazzier than Crowbar's mix of Berserker and DotM Crankcase.



Also been trying to figure out what this is:


Like, I'm guessing just a part of the robot that doesn't get hidden all the way, but it's real conspicuous and doesn't seem to match up with anything.

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.
