It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2019 - 04:14 PM)

Why has there been no new Minerva toys? I’m surprised at Takara. The Titan Master head doesn’t count.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

Hey all. We've started an official Discord server for the Allspark, and after selectively circulating some invites to shake things out, we're now going fully live. The invite link is here: 

 

https://discordapp.com/invite/9esErqN

 

If you're not familiar with Discord, it's a live chat system often used for gaming chats, most similar to Slack, or more distantly similar to Skype and Google Hangouts, which are another step over from modern IRC systems like Riot. It's not very much like old-school IRC at all, given the persistent log, image embedding, text formatting, support for voice and video, *droning continues*

 

If you're not familiar with any of those things, Discord is a live chat client where we can argue about stuff at the speed of type and Enter. We've been having quite a bit of fun doing that the past few days and would love to have anyone join who's interested. 

 

You can join using the Discord web client without even creating a permanent account, although creating one will give you options like setting an avatar and keeping access to servers you join without an invite. Installing the desktop or mobile client (which works on everything, we've checked) gets you desktop notifications and the whole biscuit. 

 

We currently only have one discussion channel open, but will open more as needed in the future for topics as they become recurring. Current discussion is on health and safety standards regulation in Ohio.

 

Come play!


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Naw, that's the Mayhem server. If you're fun we* might invite you.

 

We**'d like to note that the Allspark Rules and Guidelines apply to the official Allspark server. That means no personal attacks, nudes and lewds, and all the usual. We do watch and moderate the conversation but please feel free to pop one of us a direct message if you feel there's a problem. 

 

Some super-random Discord basics: 

 

• Discord uses markdown for text formatting. It's a standard set of tokens used in a lot of places that gets you things like *italics*, **bold text**, ~~strikethrough~~ and so on, though not colors. = ] You can see the official guide for more details. 

 

• You can embed images or attach files simply by dragging and dropping them into the chat. Image URLs and YouTube videos will automatically embed the content in the message.

 

• You can edit your messages, either by right-click, or by the up arrow if it's the last thing you typed. This can be very handy.

 

• Discord is a bit emoji-crazy, a perk of which is emoji reactions to others' messages. Right-clicking a message will allow you to pin an emoji reaction to it. Kinda handy in the way that a "like" is.

 

• A lot of personalization and configuration magic happens in your user settings menu, which you'll find in the cog icon at the lower left of the screen near your username. Points of interest are the My Account settings, where you can set your display name and avatar, and the Notifications settings, where you can control ... notifications. But there's a lot of stuff to tweak and finagle in there if needed. 

 

• Notifications can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, but they're something you can set both app-wide and per-server, and something you'll probably want to play with to suit your taste. Personally, I have notification sounds turned off, and mobile notifications turned off for all the major servers I'm a part of, with the result that I get a beep on my phone or tablet if I get a direct message and am not on my computer at the time, but not every three seconds when there's activity ... yeah. Play with it to suit your taste. You can find your notification settings for individual servers in the menu next to the server's name at the upper left, and your universal notification settings in your own user settings menu. 

 

 

* Mayhem

Allspark community group for Transformers, Gaming, Tech, Comic Books, Action Figures and anything else related to the geeky culture.
RULES:
1) Play nice and don't be a d!ck. Be respectful with others in the group.
2) No porn, spam, or pirated stuff
3) No slurs about race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, self identification, etc

We want this place to be a fun place and not be overly bogged down by rules. While we may have very few rules, more can and may be added in the future if individuals take advantage of our established rules.

 
Just be a righteous spark and you'll be fine.

Yeah, sorry about that. I got antsy about the name since just plain old allspark is taken (For now)

 

I had it as allspark.tv but that's more oriented towards the youtube channel and I wanted it to be more about the community but that seems like allspark.community might be too long (Though it might change again). Right now it's set to allspark.forums so we'll just see how it goes. 

 

On a personal level, I'm not really a huge fan of facebook, but I can't shake my fist and yell at clouds about it because our community overall matters to me more than the software being used to experience it. 

 

And the fact that so many people there now are long time forum members that haven't been around to the actual forum in ages, I think we did a good thing. I don't like splitting things up per se, but I do think facebook is just something 99% of people use now and it's good to diversify to a point.

 

Plus, it officially replaces the temp spark as a place for posts discussions (with discord still being there for live chat stuff, which has also gained a lot of users).
