My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

The idea of whole new deluxe Jazz intrigues me.  The original wasn't great even by 2007 standards, and I'm really interested what more current design teams would do with the character design.


I just hope they keep/update Deluxe Jazz's cool arm transformation.

Huh. Bonecrusher is, like, the one '07 Con i don't feel needs replacing. I mean, i can see how he'd be improved, but compared to gunhands Screamer, huge backpacking Blackout, and loose arms Brawl, old Bonesy got everything right the first time.

I was under the impression that this would be a mostly-reissues line with a few new molds. The Deluxes and Leaders seemed to mostly line up with earlier releases.

Hopefully they do take the opportunity to get some necessary reissues out, and perhaps debut some Takara tooling in the US for guys like Dino and Dispenser.

We don't really know what it is, exactly.  The Grimlock and Blackout molds are new, but everything else looks like it's either a reissue or just a placeholder.

Yeah, I don't get the assumption that most/all of these are going to be new molds. That seems...not really possible under the current financial model of how they do things. I'd assume a couple token new molds (Blackout and Grimlock) and I'd pegged everyone else as being a retool or redeco. I do like that with Stinger and Crowbar listed there, there seems to be an active effort to finish off each line, though.

The new mold thing seems to come from the fact that there are no Starscream and Optimus that both look like that and are the same size so at least one has to be new.

Crowbar at least is probably just going to be Berserker with a new head... which maybe might be why they went with him over someone like Mohawk or whoever in the first place? (well, with the deluxe at least)

Guys who haven't gotten toys since ~DotM might get new molds since Hasbro seems against using older toys for whatever reason.

I don't have any interest in movie toys. But in terms of repaints that might be usable as non-movie toys, a Western release of the black repaint of DOTM deluxe Soundwave would be nice (ideally with a gun and losing the daft Decepticon tampo), and maybe Cogman in a more interesting colour scheme with any contrast whatsoever.

My guess was that Stinger could be the same as the Takara one, and Crowbar seems to have Crankcase's SUV altmode in the photo, although sure, placeholder possible.

I have the the Takara Stringer and I really do love him.  I know he's just a recolor of Bumblebee, but the colors work so well on him.  That being said, I'm in full support of a more accurate Stinger mold.

 

I am most looking forward to Blackout though.  He's probably my favorite movie design and really just needed to be bigger.

And leader Brawl is still a great figure.

 

It looks like the HA Frenzy figure was reissued in 2015 as part of an Asia Premium 2-pack with Soundwave, but I don't know if it was any different than the first release of the same figure.

TF6 Stryker 2

TF4 Stinger

This sounds siitably intriguing. There's certainly a few bots there that, should they be new molds, or simply new releases of japan only figures, i definitely would want them.

A new Jazz? Sure. New version of Stinger or simply the evil Bee Takara deco? Yes. Leadfoot? Definitely.

Blockout sounds interesting, but i'm not sure. He's a maybe for now.
