So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves.

Let the merry-go-round of event deaths begin!

 

So the first one really caught me off-guard. I see the bodies from Velocitron, and I see Cybertron Override, Energon Hot Shot, and someone who looks like Cliffjumper. And I think, "Weird. What toy from the Unicron Trilogy looks like Cliffjumper and could be on Velocitron?" And the next panel is, "That's...Cliffjumper". I was expecting a generic easter egg and it turns out to be a real death. That was rough.

 

Caminus's Strafe is looking oddly vehicular again. I don't know if that's a spoiler for The Falling or an art error.

 

Elonia's metal is officially confirmed to be Ore-12, and the devastated body of Emissary is uncovered. And although the Titan is still alive, he is murdered by Arcee in order to stop a counter-signal from his Space Bridge that was preventing Wheeljack from teleporting the population of Elonia to safety. Gods are dying.

 

And then comes Wheeljack. Criminally underused since his return in RID #33, Wheeljack sacrifices his life to hold together the Bridge and save 2/3rds of Elonia's population. His last thoughts were of Ironhide.

 

LV-117 continues to be weird. The destruction of the planet seen in RID #10 apparently happened last week, although the effects and ramifications have been rippling through the universe for years.

 

The dead worlds of Prion and Gorlam Prime were also consumed. How one manages to consume a planet that already collapsed into another universe, I dunno. Velocitron is gone and Eukaris is going with it.

 

Windblade confirms that Cybertron intercepted the transmission in First Strike #6 that said "Welcome. Death." A second signal (confirmed in the back materials to be from TFvV #5) sent out a single word..."Unicron."

 

And now, the end of all things...

I'd be madder about Velocitron but this is the end of the whole universe anyway so

 

kind of annoyed it's one of the first places they decide to tap for that tho


"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

I suppose I shouldn't be too mad about shock deaths in an apocalyptic end of the universe story.

 

But I will anyway. Boo Wheeljack.

Honestly, I liked Wheeljack's death. It was meaningful to who he was as a character, nicely heroic, someone he's got a lot of history with was there, and it was under the writer who's had primary custody of him for the last six years.

It got me tearing up a bit, which I take as a sign it was well-executed!

So the Spaceknights flew into Unicron's mouth while he was eating, saw some crushed tatters of Velocitron in his, uhh, cheek-pouches or something, and then Unicron... spit them back out onto Elonia? Or allowed them to fly out of his mouth, despite his gravity beam sucking a whole planet inwards?

The Knights split up, as seen on page 4, panel 3. Rom and Livia flew over the surface of Unicron's body and saw the Velocitron remnants (which are there because, as explained later in the issue, Unicron is building up his body from the worlds he eats), whilst the others flew up to his mouth and got obliterated. Rom and Livia seemed to get caught in a shockwave from that and knocked down to the planet's surface.

I wonder what he was going to say to Ironhide. It read very much like it was meant to be "I love you", but, like, Ironhide and Wheeljack haven't really interacted much at all.

Unicron the world destroyer is here. And here we go with fatalities.

Damn. Emissary is gone as soon as he was unearthed. What a shame, if it does highlight the crisis level posed by Unicron.

And so passes Wheeljack. You will be missed.

A second signal saying Unicron was sent out during the events of Transformers vs. Visionaries, eh? Well that could have been set up better.

There goes Eukaris.

So Prowl the owl has appeared as a Chimeracon, a Maximal, and a Eukarian? Haha, I guess that attests to how beloved the character design is.

And I wonder if its specifically Alex Milnes decision to repeat Energon Hot Shots cameo from MtMtE #35. Heh, Unicron Trilogy forever!

It was "Tell Ironhide to..." rather than "Tell Ironhide I..."

In part, I think what I like about their deaths, is that they weren't done to hurt Unicron, they weren't any big sacrifice for victory.

 

They died because there wasn't enough time for anything else.

 

It's a kind of tragic sacrifice just to let others have a little bit more time, whether willing (Wheeljack) or unknowing (Emissary)

 

Although it is a real pity we'll never get an Emissary with Emissary and Emissary titan.

I got to the last page... and now I have no interest in it at all. Eukaris being shown to be destroyed with no evacuation just makes windblade look like an idiot. The fact they weren't evacuating other colonies... Like I said, just stupidity all around. Optimus prime is not the only person who can evacuate a planet.
Look, look... I'm going to be honest with you. 99 percent of everything I say and create is a reference.

Also apparently I sound like Dusty Rhodes.

I imagine there were, like with Cliffjumper's team on Velocitron. We just don't see it on that page.

 

There may have just been levels of success, depending on how much warning they got.
