x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

Jazz is Bee-sized. He's a tiny Deluxe by today's standards. It's the Studio Series Scale Thing.

And everyone forgets that one of Aaron Archer team's stated goals when Armada started was to make Deluxes as big as they could get away with; we've basically gotten back down to Beast Wars levels, but with less screws and pins.

Spystreak, a Basic from just after they bumped it from $5 to $7, has a giant spring-loaded claw that's nearly half the mass of the toy and two sping-loaded missile launchers.  That sounds pretty crazy now.

I've just always disliked them. Never saw any purpose in them and always preferred not having them. Spinning weapons can be fun, as long as it's free-spinning and not geared to a plunger or whatnot.

 

None of that discounting the fact that part counts are under much, much tighter limits now than then.

On one hand, I'm really glad Blackout's entire back section isn't dedicated to some silly spinning rotor gimmick.

 

On the other hand, I miss Starscream's gatling cannon arms, inaccurate as they may be.

 

On the other other hand, Payload's grabber belly arm was kinda dumb but sort of genius. I really miss characters having a signature schtick, regardless of how effective it is.

I'm definitely far more inclined to like claws and battering rams and wing-flapping and spinning rotors and working drills kind of stuff than just missile launchers, but we don't really those options for anything anyway.

Someone on TFW2005 reposted a Facebook post claiming to find Megatron and Brawl at a Walmart in South Carolina, though the Facebook post has since been deleted.

 

Brawl is available now on Amazon U.S.

 

Megatron to be available soon.

I randomly found a lonesome Starscream at my local WM the other day. I wasn't really gonna buy him, but I was really craving an actual in-store find. I'm glad I bought him, cuz he's great. Those colors and the few new bits really make him pop. I just wish he had a bit more neck articulation and some transformation in the cockpit section to fill out his chest more.

Apparently one of the main gimmicks for the Bumblebee movie toyline.

I.e. nothing directly Studio Series related.

Need help picking a toy for the Hall of Fame thread. I wanna pick either Grimlock or Blackout since I've heard so many good things about them, but I haven't gotten to experience either figure in-hand yet. Which one's better?

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.
