And we are back after that round of Forum downtime.

Feels like it's been so long since there's been a proper storm that I've been awake for. This one even has pink lightning, which always great.

So long as he has an R by his name. Even if the R is for "Recepticons"

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Sadly, my first reaction was "And I'm sure way too many people would seriously, unironically really vote for the blatant bad guy and still cheer at him while he's slaughtering the masses because they saw him on TV and he's cool."

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:17 AM)

Someone over at TFW2005 just discovered an old photo of political campaign signs, with one saying "Vote Megatron! Global Domination."

Tell an conservative conspiracy maniac that women are literally the Satan's spawn out to infect humanity with the gender virus that will turn everyone into communist Muslims who eat children, and they will be like, "Well of course! That makes perfect sense!"

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2018 - 05:48 AM)

Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

@  MEDdMI : (18 November 2018 - 12:01 AM)

@Pennpenn hooray! Now you can leave quarantine.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 November 2018 - 03:34 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 November 2018 - 01:21 PM)

@  The Doctor Who : (17 November 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Niiice!

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2018 - 10:48 AM)

My mom won two tickets to Hamilton!

@  wonko the sane? : (17 November 2018 - 09:46 AM)

Welp, good morning so far. My brother helped me get my sister in law's christmas gift, and reminded me I still had to get my mom's calendar for next year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 06:27 PM)

Fear is a state of mind.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 November 2018 - 06:25 PM)

Did you just assume my sociopolitical status?

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2018 - 06:13 PM)

Oh stop being such a pack of drama monarchs!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 November 2018 - 06:11 PM)

Too late. They can smell your fear.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2018 - 04:10 PM)

@  Arazyr : (16 November 2018 - 02:05 PM)

I would agree.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 01:15 PM)

I say yes, but I imagine many would disagree with me.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

Regarding Six Gun, Cog, and the suggested Brunt: I wonder if it's too much to hope they would work well with their respective Titans.

And I know they've got pegholes all over for weapons, but I mean in ways more akin to the way they fit in originally.

Oh, except Cog, I guess. He just kind of occupied bays that no longer exist.

Also: Slammer should be a part as well.

I wouldn't at all be surprised if the major difference between Six-gun and Cog is the torso portion is retooled into something that resembles Slammer.

I wish Full-Tilt had been available separately from Trypticon--both so I could army-build, and also so it could get redecoed.

Ah, well. Of all the smaller partner toys (where that's not a line-wide gimmick), Sixgun's probably my favorite, so this is fine.

So bring on Brunt and Fasttrack, and whoever else I'm forgetting.

And-- dare I dream? Dare I?

Be nice if they did a re-issue of Metroplex to go with Sixgun.  It's not like he wouldn't blend in with the Siege aesthetic.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

This will of course never happen but man do wish Siege's inevitable Ratchet would be based on his appearance in the second Devil's Due Joe vs TF series, the one with the time travel where he's the lone Autobot on Decepticon-conquered future Earth.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I guess Stege Deluxes are gonna come in boxes now, like Studio Series.  Irregularly-shaped boxes.

I was expecting this well before this point as Generations has become the "Collector" line, it makes sense to use a box format similar to other "collector lines" Hasbro produces.

 

Helps make that price jump a bit more tolerable alongside the dropping of stickers.

Hey guys, take a closer look at Hound's head design on his packaging art.

 

That head is different from the design of the toy's head.

 

In fact, that's not Hound, that's Cybertron Defense Hot Shot! :o

Given TR Alpha Trion, I think it's far more likely to be Springer or Roadbuster than actually Hot Shot.

Because it takes a ton of detailing from Vector Prime by way of pulling from Botcon Alpha Trion and we never actually got a Vector Prime out of it.

I see.

 

I would point out that that Alpha Trion was the only Alpha Trion toy there was. There's no particular reason anyone looking to do a Springer or Roadbuster would be looking at their CD Hot Shot redecos and not their more recent T30/Generations toys.

I think the point that TR Alpha Trion borrows specifically from FunPub Alpha Trion (specific details not previously connected with the character, who despite not having a toy, did have a well-established design) should not be skipped over so quickly.

Curses! I forgot to have Exastiken ask at SDCC if Vector Prime was the alternate head pretool for Titans Return Alpha Trion as we suspect.
