Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

The PoeT had just found a long stemmed pipe and was about to light it when the noise from outside caught his attention.  Stowing the pipe, he stepped outside, narrowly sidestepping Destron and came to see the Queen examining Kage and just managed to step aside in time to avoid the King lecturing EB on relationships and beyond the beasts and their transport.

 

Hastily, he threw up his hood and peered at the strange spectacle, words utterly failing him.

“I am self-trained, your Majesty. I have trained under many martial arts and blademasters, as well as stealth, espionage, gadgetry and other skills.

The Omega Knight is not a Knight as you would know it. That is merely the name i chose for my armoured form. After the events that brought me to the Old Publishing District, i swore to defend the city and its innocent from the cruel and corrupt. A Knight seemed an appropriate form to take for a warrior of justice.

My name is Kage Snake.”

While Kage would not normally reveal so much to a practical stranger. He did know Destron. Attempting to dissemble in front of her mother the Queen was unlikely to succeed. The rulers of nations did not rule, nor keep their rule, without being sharp-witted and shrewd.

Here the PoeT spoke up, having overcome his initial surprise.

 

He approached the pair and said,

 

"'tis the home of Howard, the Doctor, my friend,

 And, I suppose my own, at journey's end.

 The Doctor, himself, is yet inside,

 Having recently been at a patient's side."

Fuzzy pettins time was interrupted by a hand slapping EB's body by the shoulder direct into the ground. Or at least, that's what it felt like. He rubbed his stinging shoulder and stared in surprise at the King, forgetting formalities.
"Does everyone know? ...and it's not so much 'women' as 'woman' trouble. And any attempt at 'boldness' will only get me shot. Again." He pointed to the nick in his ear where Bea's bullet had grazed it.

"Sounds like the lass is a keeper, ha ha!" The King said with a hearty laugh. "What thou need is boldness AND agility. I hear you do not eat meat and THAT is thy problem." He flexed his muscles, proudly showing off. "How aboot I help you get started? I recommend narwalrus steaks for breakfast."

Meanwhile, the Queen stopped circling Kage and looked to The PoeT. "Not to disparage thy doctor but I am most relieved that a knight does not reside here, tis not fitting. Nor for a princess. Where wouldst thou put a nursery in a place like this?"

Nodding in agreement with the PoeTs words, Kage said.

“My home lies back within the Old Publishing District. Howard has simply invited us here for a visit.”

This time though, he did hold back. A foreboding itch between his shoulderblades had Kage leave any eloboration on What his home was like, very much unsaid. The itch and its accompanying nerves, had started the moment the Quenn had commented on the cottage being ill-suited to a Knight, or a Princess. Or a nursery!

Was the Queen considering an attempt to... pair him off with her daughter?

Surely she knew that Destron was not in search of a handsome prince? Nor a handsome man for that matter.

"Indeed, Kage can not live out here because he needs to pay my electrical bill," Oracle announced. The Queen looked around and in not seeing who was speaking, she looked back to Kage and The PoeT, "Please explain."

"Fi mi children ave dut an ah fiyah pit, an everyting dey could need!" Howard says, emerging from the house with a kettle in one arm and Fir nestled cozily in the other. He let's them down into the fire pit and hangs the open kettle over them, then beckons Mona over to fill the kettle with rainwater. She keeps an eye on the queen the whole time, and the first few drops are snowflakes.

The Queen was about to make a comment to Howard, but Friday quickly stated, "The voice you heard, Your Highness, was of Oracle. She is similar to myself but can not walk around as she is bound to Kage's home and can only project her words. There are workers in this land that produce 'electricity'--a sort of lightning magic. She requires this to exist so Kage's many deeds allow him to pay for the electricity for devices in his home and for Oracle's continued existance." The Queen made a brief, but humble, bow of her head. "My apologies, forgive my prying. I did not know you had a lady to support with your noble deeds. Would you like for me to see if I could work an unbinding spell? Should mine healer collaborate with your's?" gestruing towards Howard when saying 'your's'.

The PoeT did not immediately speak, but a faint resentful flicker came to his eyes as the Queen referred to Howard as Kage's healer.

 

Though he did not raise his voice, the PoeT spoke with firmness and locked eyes with the Queen.  He said,

 

"It may surprise thee, O Queen, that while we have traveled at his side,

 Kage does not possess us, nor would we, such authority, abide.

 Friends and colleagues are we and helpers to come with speed,

 But no ruler stands above us, nor such dominance, we need."

 

Here he spread his arms wide and gestured to their company of friends and continued,

 

"We all here stand as equals, as 'knights' of valued skill,

 In war we have forged our friendships, and are bound in the blood we spill.

 In peace we have worked together, to build and shape our land,

 And in life we will stand together, with open, willing hand."

EB looked at the King's mucles in awe, but shook his head, being used to teasing about his diet.
"I'm vegan. I don't eat meat or dairy for many reasons. And even if I do, I get sick. You know a lot about me, didn't you know that I'm part rabbit, too?"

The Queen responded with, "Of course you're heroes of valued skill. We wouldn't have traveled this far if thou weren't. That still doesn't answer mine quest..." Seeming annoyed, she swiftly redirected her attention to Howard. "As the doctor, can Oracle be aided by magicks or medicine? Or shall she always be in the state she is in?"

Meanwhile, the King clasped a hand on EB's shoulder again. "But I'm not trying to feed thy rabbit part of you, I'm trying to feed thy MAN part of you! Just picture it, a roast vultuck over the open fire..." Rel'Aeh then got out of the chariot and announced, "Don't worry EB. I prepared a few things for you." "Bah, tis only side courses." Rel'Aeh calmly stated, "If you continue to badger him aboot his diet, I will not allow you to have any of the blubber bread." Incredulous, the King sputtered, "T-that's treason!" "Thou art well within thy right to banish me...though where thou shall find a medic, advisor, or cook with mine experience." Rel'Aeh stated in a manner-of-fact manner. The King crossed his arms and stepped off to the side...presumably pouting.

"I was just about to make tea Mother, perhaps you and Father would like to have some while you explain what you are doing here."  Dee said, having already heard exactly why her Mother was here... perhaps giving Kage her old sword hadn't been in his best interest after all -downpayment on a dowery it certainly wasn't.

 

"A thousand pardons Howard, I might have warned you if this was at all known to me..."  She said, as she passed her friend... avoiding a sympathetic touch of his shoulder -lest her mother's focus of Grandchildren suddenly shift to the other man. It was this fear that also stopped her from rushing to save EB from her father's attempts to convince him to join his next Mooselion hunt or greased Narwalrus wrestle.       

 

Dee did make it over to the Beayaks, these two had long served as the leads of the royal chariot.

"So good to see you both well Robert, Douglas... are you enjoying yourselves here in the grassy green south?"  A quick glance at their muzzles confirmed her short time away had not cured them of their sweet tooths... as they were stained with the same colour as hers were...

 

"Was Mother Cross with you when you sniffed out those bushes?" Dee whispered a smirk spreading across her face. Robert snorted and Douglas turned his head, too embarrassed to say.  She gave each of them a good tight squeeze about their great thick necks and scritched their chins... before giving them one more berry each for being such good boys.

"Thanks." He smiled at Rel'Aeh and Howard, rubbing his now extra tender shoulder.
