I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

@  Benbot : (15 October 2019 - 08:02 AM)

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

A school-bus combiner called Valedictorion.

Oh, how about Dropout?

@  Pinkcolliebot : (09 October 2019 - 07:47 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm beginning to put together The TF Roll Out Short Hot Rod's Presentation!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (09 October 2019 - 02:35 PM)

Truant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 October 2019 - 12:26 PM)

Haslab Unicron may change the direction of Cyberverse or the netflix series.

Bus-Top has a very GoBot vibe

@  Bass X0 : (08 October 2019 - 10:51 AM)

I actually never heard of the name Megalodon until recently.

@  Noideaforaname : (08 October 2019 - 09:44 AM)

Bus-Top, Omnibus, Cerebus, Busicus, Busicon

@  Benbot : (08 October 2019 - 08:55 AM)

What's a good name for a school bus Transformer?

@  lastmaximal : (08 October 2019 - 12:57 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 October 2019 - 11:58 PM)

We're all gonna die!

Dave Filoni is primarily a creative side producer. For TV. I doubt he’s even as remotely prepared for the job of guiding a franchise across multiple media types as one of the most prolific and successful producers in Hollywood.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Nothing makes sense in this trilogy.

 

This trilogy?

 

The Empire was brought low by an attacking force wielding STONE SPEARS!

 

The Jedi discover a shady cloning facility pumping out millions of bodies presumably ordered by a now dead Jedi Master and then proceed to just use and TRUST said clones as though nothing about this entire situation was suspicious in the slightest.

 

OBI-WAN WAS IN NO WAY QUALIFIED TO TRAIN A PAPER BAG, LET ALONE A INDIVIDUAL HE BARELY HAD ANY INTERACTION WITH PREVIOUSLY!

 

 

The Troops on Endor were taken by surprise, thou they were meant to be the most elite of the Emperor's forces, I think that was a lie or the 501 were stationed elsewhere!

 

The cloning facility, the Jedi and the republic had no choice at the time but to use as the said enemy had a massive droid army ready to begin invasion of the Republic

 

Obi-wan, only passed his trials when he took on Anakin as his student, yet the older dead Obi-wan admits he thought he could teach Anakin as well as Yoda, but he admits to being wrong, prehaps if Anakin been taught by a different master, he might not of fallen to the Darkside and become Vader but then he would of likely ended up dead when Order 66 comes into effect or at least on the run.

One of the villains of The Phantom Menace is named NUTE GUNRAY. How is that not on the nose?


Well he doesn't have one to start with.

And whose nose is he supposed to be on?

Those Star Destroyers in a space storm.... are they in the same space storm from the end of "Solo"? It looks similar.

Chances are those Star Destroyers are either part of the same Sith army that the Red Troopers belong to, or its some Imperial bolthole that the Resistance/Ben are looking for to turn the tide against the oncoming Sith threat.

Oh yeah, there was that novel released around the time of the Force Awakens that revolves around the remnants of a Imperial Fleet in the wake of the Empire's collapse.

 

Did anything ever come of that or did it just kind of vanish into the background? Star Wars books were never my cup of tea, and since losing all book sellers in the local area I've kind of lost even a glancing understanding of where the extra-media story is at.

Do you mean the Aftermath trilogy? Those did, in fact, come out. That trilogy's been complete for quite some time now.

 

 

(Edited: I mistakenly used the name of the last part of the trilogy for the trilogy itself. It's correct now)

I was actually going off on elements of the old Thrawn trilogy with the Katana fleet of Dreadnaught ships and clones with extended middle vowels in their name.

Ill admit not everything Zahn wrote was gold.
