You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

-ZacWilliam, there are some exclusives yet to be announced but that's it. WFC starts in Jan (which means Nov/Dec)

Technically, they haven't announced Inferno, Cindersaur, and Outback yet.

But, man, that means we only get 6 Prime Master molds, 5 Legends molds, 6 Deluxe molds, 3 Voyager molds, 3 Leader molds, and 1 Titan mold for this year of Generations. The rest are retools.

Cybertronian alt modes has a lot more potential for being interesting than Earth-based alt modes I think. So I’m pretty okay with this whole thing.

As far as “prequel” and “story”... outside of maybe a Machinima tie-in, there isn’t much need to fear any actual narrative touching the line.

I would bet it'll follow Prime Wars lead and we'll get a dash of new bots like Slash and Alpha Bravo but they'll be one or two a year rare.

Every figure comes with one of the War Dawn Decepticon Cube-Men. So you can stack them in neat piles and then step back and appreciate how square they are.

Just figure out something to do with the heads, and the Titan/Prime Masters are halfway there.

 

And if you do them as energon cubes, you can have them as a call back to these guys.

Big Red with big jet crushing hands or we riot.

How does this get broken into a trilogy? What are the gimmicks? Do we still get little guys to provide a sense of scale for the big guys? Quintessons, who you plug into the robots and pretend are controlling them? Mini-Spies/Micromasters to drive around on the robots? Breastforce/cassette style animal partners being awesome? Cyberdroids/Dianauts doing something?

Where was this stated to start in Jan? I didnt see any indication POTP was not an 18-month line.

 

That Novastar was the single new toy in her assortment in Wave 4 should have been a clue for all of us.

 

I mean, I noticed, but I didn't want to accept the truth.

For a while now I've had the thought that I'd love to see a line using Animated-style engineering to make Cybertronian modes out of Dery models. Ideally models that we've never seen Cybertronian modes for. That way the robot modes can be as close to having stepped off the screen as possible without Masterpiece-level fiddliness, since the alt-modes could be anything that flows naturally from them.

Here we go. From Ben Yee reporting from the Hasbro panel:

https://twitter.com/...946139031228417

"(They) Want to tell the story of the war on Cybertron before they came to Earth. NOT based on the video games. #HasbroToyFair #NYTF #Transformers"

-ZacWilliam, so that seems pretty clear

 

I've been thinking on how to elaborate on why I'm so tepid on this, and I think it's that this story's just been told. So many times. With little variation.

 

Even IDW failed to really add much to it, it just expanded on stuff Aligned laid the seeds for.

 

This is the least necessary TF story to explore, save for anything involving Unicron and the events of TFTM.

I'm over here hoping that if its a prequel they can inject the Colony worlds concept in from the begining. So we don't have "lost" colonies, but still have Caminus Eukaris, Devisun et al represented in the current toyline.

I just want a legends class Aileron and more ladybots dammit. Some more mech-y beast bots too.

As a kid I always wanted to see more of their Cybertronian modes so the occasional episode there they went to Cybertron were my among favorites, but over the years I got stuff like Cybertron/GF Starscream and the WfC and FoC games and toys satisfied that very well.

 

I do hope they make Ironhide in his game and RiD15 body, always wanted a toy of that.

 

 

And it crossed my mind that I hope they still use the Colony worlds.

In this interview, the Hasbro team talks about how they want to take the next trilogy in a different design direction, and there's stuff about bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy.  

 

Which sounds to me like WFC2-or-whatever might be a little movie-y, who knows.

Additionally, they talk about how the next Fan Choice two-sets couldn't possibly be redecos/retools of any Prime Wars toys for reasons that will be obvious to us once we know more about the next toyline.

The reference to "'gritty' [ugh] realism" and less toyetic designs than Power of the Primes is actually pretty good news. Wonder whether that's going to mean something more like what Studio Series looks like on the shelf.


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?
