It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

At this point I'm actively cheering on the seeming cancellation of the Legends toyline, because it means this godawful comic will die with it.

 

 

It seems that Octane and Tigatron have talked Trickdiamond into shooting a Sexy Photobook (forget if there is a term for this) that are popular in Japan.

 

Trickdiamond is my favorite among the Guards.  I am a fan of Octane being a pervert (as he was the original robot pervert), but not of the treatment of Trickdiamond here.

 

Agreed.  For as "ha ha, cheescake! Naked girls!  Panty shots!" as Legends has been the whole time, Octane's comic is the first time where things just go too far for me to laugh with.

Dear Sakamoto-san,

 

In the world of equal rights and opportunities that we all unerringly strive for, I cannot understand why, in your graphic accompaniment to the Takara Tomy Legends series, the character of Spike Witwicky makes it through his entire comic both fully clothed and disappointingly unmolested.

 

Your treatment of the aforementioned character, seemingly for doing naught wrong other than not being female or a pre-pubescent boy, is, frankly, both shocking and unacceptable.

 

I await your forthcoming explanation.

 

Yours faithfully,

C. Fax

Are rooting for a person's unemployment and the loss of options in toy purchasing for the sake of fictional characters who don't exist in an easily ignored, silly little 2 to 4 page comic printed on the back of an instruction sheet you'll probably never use "because it's canon" really the hill you want to die on?

 

If fandom drama has taught me anything, it's that 'lore' is a four-letter word, in all the ways that implies.

Criminy. I have no particular beef with Legends' existence, even considering the spike in kink content as it winds down. It's also part and parcel with a toyline that let decent action figures get decent paint budgets, and that was a good thing.

 

But the general "good riddance" attitude is definitely something I've felt toward Transformers properties other people liked, including the BotCon / Club stuff. Is it necessarily kind to go around saying so, especially when the wound is fresh? Not really, no. But you don't need to make this any more personal a thing than it necessarily is. 

 

Hell, plenty of people would say the same about the IDW TF comics, fachrissakes. Does that mean they personally hate Alex Milne and want him to starve? No, that'd be nonsense.

Alex never had a letter writing campaign organized to have him removed from More than Meets the Eye because of something he drew over a decade prior.

Honestly, rooting for the cancellation of a comic which routinely sexualises all its female and child characters totally is a hill I'm willing to die on.

I'd react the exact same if any franchise I care about started releasing shameless wank material in an official capacity (especially shameless wank material with all the transphobia and child sexualisation that Legends has), and it's especially galling that this has been coming at a time when Western Transformers fiction has been taking some of its biggest steps (relatively speaking) towards improving inclusivity and not centering everything around straight male nerdbros.

That was stupid, and while I'm not aware whether anyone involved in this conversation was also involved in that stupid activity, I can't really apologize for calling their stupid actions stupid if they were, because those actions were, you know, stupid. With that said, I don't see that it's principally related to the topic at hand at all, which is Legends ending for purely business reasons and some people being happy that it's over.

Well, not really, no. It could come with a big NON-CANON disclaimer on the front and I'd still die on that hill. "Because it's official", would be more accurate.

To compare, it's like how a random person watching porn in their own home is a non-event, but a government official watching porn at work is national news.
