after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Robot mode looks pretty nice and I agree with Powered Convoy about the stance and presence.  Lion mode, however, is bizarre.  The head (at least from the angle in the photo) reminds me of the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz.

I mean, Blackarachnia already made it clear that they do not give hug one about the beast mode if it interferes with the robot, so this is consistent.

 

It'd be super cool if this was an indication that they might do other JBW characters in the future, but you and I both know it means they might do Big Convoy one day and absolutely nothing else. As it stands, I don't care about either of those guys. Show me a Galvatron, though, and I will have some money for you.

I actually kind of like that lion mode. I got used to the original, and this is better than that.

Still has the entire lion foreleg hanging off the forearms, but now those forelegs aren't a single piece of hollow plastic. That will be awkward.

I like it, but I already have the original. And since it actually looks like it follows the original transformation (other than the magic lion head), I have no need for this. I predict that this might not do so well. It's an MP figure of a character that not many people outside Japan have any connection to.

It depends if you think "people outside of Japan" are a meaningful proportion of Takara's audience.

-ZacWilliam, I mean I don't know but I figure it's at least possible they don't much care at all about what folks outside Japan want.

Reaction on TFW is surprisingly positive.

I think a lot of non-Japanese may have some affection for him as their first Japanese import.

Bingo. Lio Convoy might be the very first Japanese Transformer I purchased. I really regret selling him. Im very excited for this.

Well that looks rather silly and, yet, somewhat regal - as an Optimus Prime-alike that transforms into a white lion probably should, I guess.

Glad as I am that he has the cartoon lion face, I really would rather they just stuck with that one in both modes.

A lion head turning itself inside out so it looks like a lion head sure is something.

Cheetor crammed the cheetah face behind a cheetah face in the pursuit of accuracy, so I would struggle to be surprised in this case.
