Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

@  ZakuConvoy : (13 May 2021 - 02:27 PM)

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 May 2021 - 11:20 AM)

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

@  tigerhawk : (13 May 2021 - 03:28 AM)

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

@  tigerhawk : (10 May 2021 - 02:56 AM)

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

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.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

Best of luck man.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

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.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

@  tigerhawk : (05 May 2021 - 01:30 PM)

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 May 2021 - 07:38 PM)

REVELATION! Towering war machines more durable than nerd!

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

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?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  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)


@  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.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

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)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

After driving north a couple of miles outside of Besseltrade and getting armored up, Friday asked the fateful question, "Where now?"

Having retracted his Cowl for the moment, Kage rubbed his chin with a gauntleted hand.


"Well, our primary target still remains the fast relocating forces of YPNR. However, is it worth risking the use of one of Ms. Greys tracer spell pages now, so that we can at least guesstimate Moscareina/Patchs location, in relation to the known Core-based fallback YPNR base?


Speaking of locations, how effective will your map system be out here Friday?"

Friday said, "For this area, I have have it mapped for a few miles since we've been out here. I'm limited by what I've seen and what networks are nearby. I relay information with Oracle but in the end, it just means we have the same information and gaps in that information. For instance, neither of us has a map of the Underceiling."

"I figured as much. Well then, this journey will be as much discovering what's out here as it is anything else. Hmm. When we get back to the OPD, remind me about the Underceiling Friday. I wouldn't mind taking part in a potential exploration of what's down there. Although there is the wrinkle of Patthew Hughes and his not-exactly-legal trading going on down there. Still, the existence of an entirely upside down, mostly intact city that could stretch the entirety of the OPD, if not further...




Anyway, the tracer pages. Do we risk using one now. Or do we focus on YPNR for now.




Kage knew, deep down, that he would risk a page to begin there search for Patch. However, he would not push for that choice.

"I-I don't know. It's such a tough decision. What does everyone else think?" Friday asked, as she turned to the rest of the group.

"Let's use one of the magic pages. Let's not fall into the trap of never using our magic trinkets because we might need them later."


"That's our friend out there. We need to find her."

As one of the pages was lit, the letters slowly lit up. A crude arrow made intense flames hovered above the page as the paper itself also floated in the air. The direction was north-northwest but...was also slightly pointed upward. As the remnants of the paper burned and the flaming arrow began to dim, the group now had a course to follow. Ominous clouds slowly began to gather as uncertainty loomed.

The hospital bed Harue had been in was empty. The nurses chatted and laughed among themselves, trading horror stories of one visit or another of their recurring guest.


The apartment Harue had stayed in was also empty. The apartment was in worse condition, scorch marks on the walls and ceilings, broken dish fragments in the trash. On the kitchen counter was an envelope with a handful of Laics, along with a hand written story addressed to “The Landlord’s Boss’s boss’s boss’s boss.”


Once upon a time there was a brave Soldier who served in a large Kingdom. He was strong and handsome like no other. The Kingdom was under constant threat from the Lord of Chaos, whom constantly attacked the Kingdom with fire-breathing dragons, goblins whom caused mischief, and other monsters. The Soldier did his duty and defeated many a monster, yet remained relatively unknown save to the ladies of the Kingdom, who fawned upon him.


One day, the Soldier came upon an injured Goblin. The Goblin had been wounded by some townsfolk, and the Soldier took pity upon it and treated its wounds. So great was the Soldier’s compassion that he offered to take the Goblin in. The Goblin was confused.

“Chaos is my master,” it said, “I can’t help but cause destruction in my wake.”
The Soldier smiled a dazzling smile. “Then I will take care of you and keep Chaos at bay.”
The Goblin decided to take the Soldier’s offer, and so returned with him to his quarters.

Despite the Soldier’s kindness and the Goblin’s determination to not cause trouble, trouble followed the Goblin everywhere. Bookcases falling over, carriages losing control, fireworks setting off, you name it. Time and time again the Soldier would protect the Goblin, clean up after it, and calm the nerves of the townsfolk.


And so it was for many cycles of the moon, and eventually the Soldier began to tire of the constant vigilance that caring for the Goblin required. The Goblin also tired of the promises that Chaos would be defeated, and so nothing ever changed. One day, the frustration grew between them and they fought. The Soldier left the Goblin in his quarters and went for a walk to clear his head.

And then, Chaos struck again, sending out a mighty dragon. It had even devoured one of the townspeople. The Soldier, in his heroic manner, charged into the great fire eater’s belly.


And he was never heard from again.


The Kingdom’s other soldiers eventually defeated the dragon and cut its belly, finding the remains of a body inside. Some said it was the Soldier. Others said it was the townsperson who got devoured.
For its part, the Goblin decided to find out what had happened to the Soldier. Whether the Soldier was truly gone, had escaped to an island and was living it up with beautiful women, either way the Goblin wanted to know.


And Chaos follows the Goblin still, to this very day.
