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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

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?

Yes.

It also means the entire content of the Raffy Rodriguez leak from last year has finally been officially released, revealed or both.

And NOW I'm going to get this mold.

I've always had a fondness for the sheer WTF nature of these wild cyberglyphics tattoos on this otherwise entirely mundane Earth jet. (Plus it just looks awesome.) This along with Reign of Starscream (shout out to Chris Mowry) made me really appreciate the fledgling movieverse as a font of storytelling possibilities. Sure, then ROTF happened, but it was a special bit of time to be in.

His model wasn't tan, but it sure LOOKS tan due to all the scenes in the desert making his grey body look like that. There's alot of sunsets and suns in ROTF, and I think this color plastic is meant to give the overall warm feel to his appearance.

But if you look at him in scenes in like, the foundry, etc. He's gray in a neutral lighting.

It's probably also supposed to make him not look like the toy that'll probably still be wave-1-ing around when this one comes out.

 

I love his ROTF design; the Cyberglyphs all over what is an otherwise totally normal Earth vehicle is a cool look, and it's very "Starscream" inasmuch as none of the other characters have such a dramatic use of them.

At the time, I just chalked Starscream getting stupid looking tattoos as something that got excised from the film when RotF got hit hard by the writer's strike.  "Surely," I thought, "there's no way later films would just ignore a character having an entirely new look between films!".

I didn't initially read The Reign of Starscream back when it first came out between the first two films, but I had seen images of the covers. This one in particular looked to me like Starscream was trying to create a new AllSpark through a ceremonial sacrifice of those chained up Autobots and, seeing that image but never actually reading the comic until much later, my first assumption about Starscream's tattoos in ROTF was that he might have gotten them from this AllSpark ceremony. Whether that meant that the tattoos were either willingly applied to him (by himself or a fellow Decepticon) for ritualistic reasons, or that they were the result of his AllSpark ceremony going wrong and, as divine punishment for trying to play with forces beyond his understanding, he was unwittingly marked by some unleashed energies of his "fake" AllSpark, was up to my own imagination.

 

...Until the time came when I'd finally gotten around to giving that comic series its due full read, and saw that the tattoos had nothing to do with that story. :(

Oh hey, THERE'S the missing pizza cutter saw blade.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I'm not fond of the tan either, but eh. Would've rather he have a nice all-over coat of silver or gunmetal (in contrast to the flat light gray of the previous one) under the tats, but this isn't exactly the era of wonderful paint budgets.
